What happens when you tell a pastor that God talks to you? He's very impressed, apparently.

In The Huffington Post's exclusive clip above from the second episode of NBC's "Save Me" (two-episode premiere on Thurs., May 23 at 8 p.m. ET), Beth Harper (Anne Heche) opens up to the pastor at her church about a very ... interesting talent she's developed after having a near-death run-in with a sandwich.

"Pastor Jim? I have an espresso maker I'd like to donate to the church if you can use it somehow," she says, before adding, "God talks me."

"Lucky you!" he exclaims.

Here's how NBC describes the first two episodes of "Save Me":

"The Book Of Beth" (Pilot)

"Save Me" premieres with Emmy nominee Anne Heche starring as Beth Harper, an absentee wife and mother who suffers a dramatic near-death experience and is revived only to discover that she now receives messages from God. As she warms up to her powers and begins dispensing advice that is astonishingly accurate, her husband Tom (Michael Landes) is skeptical and their teenage daughter Emily (Madison Davenport is horrified. Complicating matters even more, Tom's mistress Carly (Alexandra Breckenridge) shows up to confront Beth about the affair and quickly gets a shocking surprise. Heather Burns (as Jenna Dennings) and Joy Osmanski (as Maggie Tompkins) also star.

"Take It Back"

Beth (Anne Heche) begins a new life on the straight and narrow and wants to make amends with old friends she has offended. Her efforts to return a long-ago stolen espresso machine to next door neighbor Maggie (Joy Osmanski) are rebuffed. Meanwhile, Tom (Michael Landes) learns to adjust to his wife's newfound ability to communicate with God and they both try to re-establish some sense of normality with their old friends and their daughter Emily (Madison Davenport). Alexandra Breckenridge and Heather Burns also star.

"Save Me" premieres on Thurs., May 23 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
