[The FOREIGN DEVIL is sitting in his "office chair" with a book and a bourbon, underlining passages with a ruler in that obsessive way of his, and cursing under his breath when he leaves an unwanted blot of ink. HERR GOER enters with his laptop.]
HG: What are you doing?
FD: I'm reading a book.
HG (in his most pretentious voice): "I'm reading a book." What's the book?
(The FD lifts the book so the title can be read.)
HG: "The Beauty of the Infinity" ... What's that, mathematical philosophy?
FD: No, more like antiquarian theology.
HG: Because, you know, there are some philosophy books that deal with infinity as a mathematical concept.
FD: I know, but this-- is not one of those books.
HG: You know, in math sometimes when you get infinity, you can also say-- like when the limit is infinity, you can also say, "It doesn't exist."
HG: So does that mean God doesn't exist?
FD: No, it means Christianity is pretty shocking.
FD: It means Christianity looks things like that in the face, and admits them, and then says, "Nevertheless..."
HG: Oh. Well, good night.
