MARISOL. (In her sleep.) Am I pregnant with the Lord’s baby?! Is the new Messiah swimming in my electrified Womb? Is the supersperm of God growing a mythic flower deep in the secret greenhouse inside me? Will my morning sickness taste like communion wine? This is amazing — billions of women on earth, and I get knocked up by God!
ANGEL. No baby, no baby, no baby, no baby — No, Baby.
