  1. Excellent episode! I am trying to find the name of the big band song being played by Father McCabe at the beginning of the show.

    1. When the episode originally aired, I believe it was "Ain't Misbehavin' " by Fats Waller. The version I saw on Hulu seems to have a different, more generic song.
