“Cute As A Chinese Baby”

Bobby Blane: Sometimes adrenaline gives people the shakes. Some might think it’s cowardice, so maybe you’d want to pray about it.
Jimmy: I’m not a religious man.
Bobby Blane: There’s nothing wrong with prayer. We knew this firefighter, this trooper, who always carried a bible next to his heart. We used to mock him, but that bible stopped a bullet.
Jimmy: No shit.
Bobby Blane: Hand of God, that bible stopped a bullet–would have ruined that fucker’s heart. And had he had another bible in front of his face, that man would be alive today.
