He can make me dig this stupid hole, but he can't make me pray, you hear?


Dad told us that there were moments when people could just disappear without anyone knowing where they went or why. He said those were the moments when God's Hands could take you. According to Dad, nothing, not even a camera, could catch us. We were invisible when we were God's Hands.

Fenton: My name's Fenton Meiks. Now listen, this may sound a little bit crazy but...I know who the "God's Hand" killer is.
Agent Doyle: All right, I'll bite. Who?
Fenton: You haven't even heard me out yet and already you doubt me. Why is that?
Agent Doyle: Because in a case like this nobody just walks in the office and tells you who the killer is. It doesn't happen that way.
Fenton: Sometimes truth defies reason.
Agent Doyle: Yeah? So who is it then?
Fenton: My brother.

I started digging that goddamn hole, but I did not pray. I would not. I hated God, I despised Him. My hatred helped me dig, kept me going. Dad's or God's or whoever's plan it was, it would not work on me. I knew what Dad was doing was wrong, and nothing was gonna change that.

[to Adam] It's all a big lie, you hear me? I think we need to run away, just for a little while. Until he gets better. Sooner or later Dad's gonna kill somebody and you know it.

I wanted to run away... far away, but I still couldn't leave Adam, no matter how crazy Dad was turning. Besides, there was nowhere to go.

Are we gonna go get us a demon, Dad?

Fenton: Dad, these are people's names!
Dad: That's right. And they'll look like people too. But they're not. The angel said when I lay my hands on them I'll reveal them for what they truly are.

Fenton: [on the phone] Hello?
Adam: Demons are taking over the world.
Fenton: Adam?
Adam: I can't destroy them all. I can't take it anymore!
Fenton: Now, let's talk about this, Adam.
Adam: But there's nothing to talk about! It's over... whatever happens, you have to take me to the rose garden. You promised, remember?

Nothing that crazy could be real.

Sometimes truth defies reason.

Get down there. It has to be done. It's God's will. Come on, do it like I showed you, the neck first, Fenton.

You didn't think anyone knew about that, did you? But God saw you! [Dad picks up his axe] And you can't escape God's wrath!

Boys! Boys, look at this. We got them all. It won't be long now. The angel came again last night and told me that God will be sending us a list of the first 10 demons soon.

That was our family. Just the three of us. All of Mom and Dad's relatives had died, so there was no-one but us. We didn't mind though. We didn't need anybody else. We were happy together.
