99. INT. CHURCH - DAYTIME

At the Triple Rock Church.

MC: And now, this weeks sermon is from our beloved the Reverend Cleophis James.

REV: And now people. And now people. When I woke up this morning, I heard a disturbing sound. I said, when I woke up this morning I heard a disturbing sound. What I heard was the jingle-jangle of a thousand lost souls. And I'm talking about the souls of all the men and women, departed from this life. Wait a minute, the Lord says the souls of us here on earth is, secret of divine life, they'll not find. Because it's too late... too late yeah, too late for them to ever see again, the light they once chose not to follow, don't be lost when the time comes. For the day of the Lord cometh, out of deep in the night.
Amen. Amen.

Please tell this does not end with Jo Jo dead in a sleazy Hacknorwood hotel after shooting eight balls all night and then all we are left with is a few great movies, some TV shows and his talentless brother (jon jon) breaking into show business based only on his dead sibling name.
