5x06 Beautiful Dreamer
First Aired: Oct. 25, 1998 on CBS
Summary: Tess, posing as a schoolteacher, tries to help a child who wants to become a hit man by telling him the story of Abraham Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth.
Andrew: What you have done was not ordained by God; what you have done, is murder a human being in cold blood. And yet by the grace of that same God there is still time for you to trade that - shame, for mercy.
Monica: The dream didn't begin in your mind, sir. It comes from the mind of God.
John Wilkes Booth: [to Andrew] I believe that you are an interloper. What we refer to in the theatre as "the mysterious stranger" who enters to complicate the plot.
- Goof (anachronisms): When Booth and the men in the bar are singing Beautiful Dreamer, they are accompanied by a banjo played in the three finger or "Scruggs" style. This is extremely unlikely, as that style was not popularized until the mid-1940s. It's much more likely it would have been played in a plectrum, or strumming style.
