Good Friday, in our tradition

Tyler: You know what would be cool? Chocolate crosses.
Liza: For Easter?
Tyler: Yeah.
Liza: Shouldn't they be two pieces, then? A chocolate Jesus and a chocolate cross. And on Easter, you could eat the Jesus and be all symbolic.
Tyler: I just want the chocolate Jesus. See what people have to say. Jesus was a black man.

Liza: Rory, do you know what Easter's about?
Rory: Nope.
Liza: It's about everything coming back to life, rebirth, growth.
Rory: Like the dinosaurs??

[paraphrase long conversation about the superhero Jesus and how he was all about the love but that the bad people ("The dinosaurs??") killed him because they were afraid of change. And some people believe that he rose again, to show us all that love is triumphant.]

Rory: I think I'll just believe that the dinosaurs are coming back on Sunday.
