Bill "Mac" McDonald (Michael Joiner) and Sam Wright (Mike Higgenbottom) may have been paired up as law enforcement officers, but that doesn't men they have to like each other. Mac's prejudice collides with Sam's religious optimism, causing both to feel offended. The only solution to the problem may be extending The Grace Card.
