Paulie: You didn't go to hell. You went to purgatory, my friend. Christopher: I forgot about purgatory. Paulie: Purgatory--a little detour on the way to paradise. Christopher: How long do you think we've got to stay there? Paulie: That's different for everybody. You add up all your mortal sins and multiply that number by 50. Then you add up all your venial sins and multiply that by 25. You add that together and that's your sentence. I figure I'm gonna have to do 6,000 years before I get accepted into heaven and 6,000 years is nothin' in eternity terms. I can do that standing on my head. It's like a couple of days here.
