You know you better not lie in here man, this is the big room! God does not look favorably on you. He has a tendancy to throw... lightning bolts at things... At liars!

Rabbi Jake Schram: You're in love with her?
Father Brian Finn: [to himself] No one seems to have picked up on this. It's very strange.

I feel like I'm on some bad new Aaron Spelling show - "Melrose Priest."

I don't doubt myself because of you. I feel like the best version of myself when I'm with you, and that makes me doubt everything else.

I'm Irish! This is milk to me baby! Milk!

Father Brian Finn: You must think I'm such an idiot!
Anna Riley: No, Brian!
Father Brian Finn: No, no no, I think I'm an idiot!

You wanna bring a priest to your first good date in two years? What kind of strategy is that?

Rachel Rose: [to Brian and Anna] So how long have you two been together?
Father Brian Finn: Oh, right!
Anna Riley: Oh, we go way back.
Father Brian Finn: Yeah, we've known each other since we were kids 'cause we grew up together and we connected again a couple months back this was and we just clicked, really unexpectedly.

[to Anna] Excuse me if I say that I don't think I'm the best person to offer objective advice on this particular confession.

Father Brian Finn: If I was to tell you that I loved you and I'd give it all away just to be with you, what would you say?
Woman in Bar: Good night, Paulie.
Father Brian Finn: Yep. That's about par for the evening.

Father Brian Finn: I keep thinking about what you said in seminary, that the life of a priest is hard and if you can see yourself being happy doing anything else you should do that.
Father Havel: That was my recruitment pitch, which is not bad when you're starting out because it makes you feel like a marine. The truth is you can never tell yourself there is only one thing you could be. If you are a priest or if you marry a woman it's the same challenge. You cannot make a real commitment unless you accept that it's a choice that you keep making again and again and again.

Anna Riley: What's happening with Ruth and Ethan?
Father Brian Finn: Oh. Ethan married a Catholic girl and that did not go over well.
Anna Riley: That's why they're fighting?
Father Brian Finn: They're not fighting, they're not talking. Two years now no communicado.
Anna Riley: Are you serious?
Father Brian Finn: Yeah.
Anna Riley: What? Weren't they really close though?
Father Brian Finn: As close as Ruth and Jake.
Anna Riley: That explains a lot.
Father Brian Finn: You see why tonight was not just a date.
