forget my own head next

THE JOYOUS CONGREGATION OF THE SMILING GOD: 25 And the Lord spoke unto the Angel that guarded the eastern gate, saying ‘Where is the flaming sword that was given unto thee?’
26 And the Angel said, ‘I had it here only a moment ago, I must have put it down somewhere, forget my own head next.’
27 And the Lord did not ask him again.

Inktober Day 6: Sword

“25 And the Lord spake unto the Angel that guarded the eastern gate, saying ‘Where is the flaming sword that was given unto thee?’
26 And the Angel said, 'I had it here only a moment ago, I must have put it down some where, forget my own head next.’
27 And the Lord did not ask him again.”

katsuja replied to your post “You know, if episode three starts with the scene in the Garden of…”

Neil also stated that episode three will show Aziraphale being scolded for losing the sword.. so a different angle. I so so hope we’ll see pre-fall Crowley too.. or at least how God curses him to forever carry those snakey features <3

Oh yes! Thank you! The adapted footnote!

  1. And the Lord spake unto the Angel that guarded the eastern gate, saying Where is the flaming sword which was given unto thee?
  2. And the Angel said, I had it here only a moment ago, I must have put it down some where, forget my own head next.
  3. And the Lord did not ask him again.

I found what Neil said:

Q: Have any of the footnotes from the book made it into the show via the narrator or other characters?

A: Lots of the footnotes have made it into the show in one way or another. In fact, episode three begins with the lord god asking Aziraphale what he did with the flaming sword that he was given, and Aziraphale confessing that he ‘put it down here somewhere, forget my own head next’.

So that’s how episode three will begin! :)

And the Angel said, “I had it here only a moment ago, I must have put it down somewhere, forget my own head next.”
