Who's the dude in the corner tossing fat stacks of cash in the air?John 12:1-8New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Anointed at Bethany12 Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. 2 Here a dinner was given in Jesus’ honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. 3 Then Mary took about a pint[a] of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
4 But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, 5 “Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year’s wages.” 6 He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it.
7 “Leave her alone,” Jesus replied. “It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. 8 You will always have the poor among you,[c] but you will not always have me.”

"Do not play monk"
-sage words from some parish priest... or an agent giving, good Lebanese boy, Tony Shalhoub some unsage advice that would make his career parish. I forget which. Maybe it's about not playing a jazz pianist's records, who knows? Life is a mystery.
