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.
Monica: I believe your faith in God a long time ago prepared you to leave this world and meet your Creator. But until that day comes, God wants to reward your faithfulness by giving you some new measure of peace, now.
Monica: The dream didn't begin in your mind, sir. It comes from the mind of God.
John Wilkes Booth: A hundred years from now when the schoolchildren are reading about the heroes of the South, right next to Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee will be the names John Wilkes Booth and David Harold!
- 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.
