Man of faith

From the film “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”:

Sheikh Muhammed: How many hours do you fish before you catch something?

Dr. Alfred Jones: Oh, gosh. Hundreds sometimes.

Sheikh Muhammed: Is that a good use of your time for a facts and figures man. But you persist, with such poor odds of success. Why? Because you’re a man of faith, Dr. Alfred. In the end, you are rewarded for your faith and constancy.

Dr. Alfred Jones: With due respect, fishing and religion are hardly the same thing your excellency.

Sheikh Muhammed: With equal respect, I have to disagree.

Later in the movie:

Dr. Alfred Jones: I don’t know anyone that goes to church anymore.

Harriet: I don’t think i do either.

Dr. Alfred Jones: On Sunday, we go to Target.
