May I come in?
We would require a third party.
What was Donald's mother doing here?
We Were Having a Chat
A Third Party is Truly Required, Father
No Sister, No third Party.. you and Me need to talk. You need to stop this campaign against me.
You can stop it at any time
Confess, and resign
You are attempting to destroy my reputation! But the result of all this will be your removal, not mine.
What are you doing in this school?
I am trying to make good
Or even more to the point, what are you doing in the priesthood?
You are single handedly holding this school and this parish back
a progressive education and a welcoming church.
You can't distract me Father Flynn. This isn't about my behavior, it's about yours
It's about your unfound suspicion.
That's Right, I have suspicions.
You know what I haven't understood through all of this? Why do you suspect me? What have I done?
You gave that boy wine to drink. And you let him take the blame.
That is completely untrue. Did you talk to Mr. McGinn?
All McGinn knows is that he came to drink wine, he doesn't know how he came to drink it.
Did his mother have something to add to that?
So that's it. There's nothing there.
I'm not satisfied
Well if you're not satisfied, ask the boy then.
No, he'd protect you, that's what he's been doing.
Oh, and why would he do that?
Because you have seduced him/
You're insane! you have got it in your head that I have corrupted this child after giving him wine, and nothing I say will change that.
But correct me if I'm wrong, that this has nothing to do with the wine, not really. You have had this fundamental mistrust of me before this incident. And it was you who told Sister James to be on the lookout for me.
So you admit it?
I know People
That's not good enough
It won't have to be
You will tell me what you have done?
Ohh will I?
I'm not one of your truant boys. Sister James is convinced I am innocent.
So you've talked to Sister James, of course you've talked to Sister James.
Did you know Donalds father beats him?
And might that not account for the odd behavior Sister James noticed in the boy?
Then what is it? What? What did you hear that convinced you so thoroughly?
What does it matter?
I want to know
On the first day of school, I saw you touch William Londons wrist, and I saw him pull away
That was all
But that's nothing.
What are you writing?
You leave me no choice, I am writing down what you say. I tend to get flustered and forget details of an upsetting conversation, and this may be important. When I talk to the monsignor and explain to him why you need to be removed as the principal of this school.
This Morning, I spoke to Mrs. Muller, I took the precaution of calling the last parish to which you were assigned..
What did he say?
I didn't speak to the pastor, I spoke to one of the Nuns.
You should've spoke to the pastor.
I spoke to a nun
That's not the proper route for you to have taken, Sister. The Church is very clear, you have to go through the pastor.
Why, do you have an understanding, you and he. Father Flynn, you have a history.
You have no right rummaging through my past!
This is your third pastor in five years.
Call the pastor, ask him why I left, it's perfectly innocent.
I'm not calling the pastor
I am a good priest. And there is nothing in my record to suggest otherwise.
You will go after another child, and another, until you are stopped.
What nun did you speak to?
I won't say
I have not touched a child.
You have not the slightest proof of anything.
But I have my certainty, and armed with that, I will go to your last Parrish, and the one before that if necessary. I will find a parent, who probably doesn't know you are still working with children. And once I do that, you will be exposed. You may even be attacked, metaphorically or otherwise.
You have no right to act out on your own. You are a member of a religious order. You have taken vows, obedience being one. You answer to us! You have no right to step outside of the church.
I will step outside of the church if that's what needs to be done, though the door should shut behind me. I will do what needs to be done, Father, if it means I am damned to hell. You should understand theater you will mistake me. Now, did you give Donald Muller wine to drink?
Have you never done anything wrong?
I confessed it. Did you give Donald Muller wine to drink?
Whatever I have done, I have left in the healing hands of my confessor. As have you, we are the same.
We are not the same! A dog that bites is a dog that bites, I do not justify what I did wrong and go on. I admit it, detest, and take my medicine. Did you give Donald Muller wine to drink?
You lie. Very well. If you won't leave my office, I will. And when I go, I will not stop.
You will request a transfer from this Parrish. You will take a leave of absense until it is granted.
And do what for the love of God. My life is here.
Please! Are we people? Am I flesh and blood like you? Or are we just ideas and convictions. I can't say everything. Do you understand? There are things I can't say. Even if you can't imagine the explanation, Sister, remember that there are circumstances beyond your knowledge. Even if you feel certainty, it is an emotion, not a fact. In the spirit of charity, I appeal to you. On behalf of my lifes work. You have to behave responsibly. I put my life in your hands.
I don't want you
My reputation is at stake.
You can preserve your reputation
If you say these things, I will not be able to do my work in this community.
Your work in this community should be discontinued.
You'd leave me with nothing.
That's not true. It's Donald Muller who has nothing, and you took full advantage of that
I have done nothing wrong. I care about that boy very much.
Because you smile at him. And sympathize with him. And talk to him as if he were the same.
That child needed a friend.
You are a cheat. The warm feeling you experienced when that boy looked at you with trust was not the sensation of virtue. It can be got from a drunkard from his tot of rum. You're a disgrace to the collar. The only reason you haven't been thrown out of the church is the decline of vocations.
I can fight you
You will lose
You can't know that.
Where is your compassion?
Nowhere you can get to it. Stay here, compose yourself. Use the phone if you'd like. Good Day Father. I have no sympathy for you. I know you are invulnerable to true regret. And cut your nails.
Yes. this is Brendan Flynn of St. Nicholas Parish. I need to make an appointment to see the bishop.
