Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of Father Frank Pistano, a Catholic priest. He's there to help his colleague, Father McRoberts who is bitter over the death of a young parishioner and is drinking heavily. Al tells Sam there is a high probability that Father Mac, as he is known, will be killed. Both Father Mac and the dead boy were the only witnesses to a killing by young hoodlum Tony Pronti and it is clear that Tony is out to get rid of him. When Father Mac reaches the end of his tether, Sam has to keep him from committing murder. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Sam tells Father Mac to take his abstinence from alcohol "one day at a time" and Father Mac acts as if it's the first time he's heard that saying when, indeed, it's been in alcoholics anonymous since its inception in the 1930's. See more »

Quotes

Father McRoberts: [to Sam - in the body of Frank Pistano - about the Montocelli sisters] I was here ten years before they quit reviewing my sermons. Now they just shoot me dirty looks from the front row. At least you're Italian. They consider being Irish a birth defect.
