I have no claim on you. You know how I - how you - If you wanted to stay, you need never see me again.

As Florence starts chasing members of the congregation out of the church at the beginning of the film, members of the choir can be seen getting up and walking forward in the direction of the isle (note the young blond woman in the black dress who is first in line). When the scene cuts to a close-up on Florence moving down the isle, we see the choir members still seated in their places. They then get up and file out in the same direction as in the previous shot.
"The Miracle Woman" is offered as a rebuke to anyone who, under the cloak of Religion, seeks to sell for gold, God's choicest gift to Humanity ---- FAITH.
