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

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.
