Oh, g'day, kids.

Hot day. Where are you off to?

Hmm?

The billabong.

Nowhere.

Ah! The billabong, eh?

I bet you're a good little swimmer.

I'm gonna learn Australian crawl.

The Australian crawl? Wow.

Well, now, if you're going to learn the Australian crawl, you're going to need to keep your strength up, aren't you?

Now, I've got a couple of chocolates for you.

That'll help. Here.

One's nougat and one's caramel. Which do you want?

Caramel, please.

We don't want any.

What do you... What do you mean?

We don't want any.

Oh, don't be a spoilsport, son. Come on!

We don't want any.

But I do want a chocolate!

Boy: Shut up!

Girl: I want a chocolate.

Mickey! Wait for me!

Wait for me!

Any luck?

I'm not here for mass.

I need some money.

Oh, you picked the wrong parish, Missy.

The font of charity here is as dry as the creek.

Oi!

Thank you.

What?

Who's the Angel of Death?

Angels of Death.

Michael and Samael.

Archangels.

Fire and brimstone.

In Revelations, Michael leads God's armies against Satan.

And Samael?

Ah, different kettle of fish.

Samael is evil incarnate.

Takes away men's souls.

But you won't find him in the Bible proper.

He's apocryphal. Just a story.

Just a story.

Could you...

Could you give me a blessing?

Well, yeah, OK.

May God protect your going out and your coming in now and forever.

Amen.

Uh, Missy.

My old dad didn't have much time for religion.

But above our front door, he'd hung this saying.

"May the road rise up to meet you.

"May the wind always be at your back."

Eve: Ahh!

Priest: "May the sun shine warm on your face.

"And the rain fall gentle on your land.

"And until we meet again...

"...may God hold you in the palm of his hand."
