Story Summary

Tommy begs Andy to quit clowning around during Pastor Donald's sermon but with no success. Asked to leave by the assistant pastor, they head to the local burger bar, where Tommy sees a different side to Andy who invites a homeless man to eat with them. When church is over, Tommy's parents repeatedly tell him what a bad influence Andy is, leaving Tommy scratching his head, having shared in Andy's act of kindness.
