Borat learns how to dine like a gentleman and then puts what he has learnt into practice.

This plan goes badly wrong as Borat innocently insults most of the guests, brings down his output from a trip to the toilet and then gets a call girl to arrive as his partner.

Mr. Jesus

A hungover, unshaven Borat wakes up to find he is outside a church. This is not a church similar to 'The Vicar of Dibley' that UK Borat fans may have some experience with. Speeches in it includes a passionate one about the USA being a Christian nation in the beginning, now and always - the camera flashes to blonde children in the congregation, and there's a certain undertone of 1930's Germany about things.

Anyway, Borat doesn't mind, he enjoys the service and is revitalised and has forgiven Pamela and is ready to go looking for her again.

"Do Jesus like me?"
(Borat somehow has managed to get the microphone at the front of the church)

Return Kazakhstan

Without Pamela Borat returns to Kazakhstan and reflects on the great, good and shit times. He takes the call girl Luenell with him and lives happily ever after. Will we see a sequel?

"Thank you for watch my film. I hope you like? Chenk que."


24. O Kazakhstan
O Kazakhstan

Closing credits roll to the sound of the spoof Kazakh national anthem. This is the same song Borat was singing outside each of the big premiere's (London, Sydney, LA, Paris...)

Kazakhstan number one exporter of potassium. Other countries have inferior potassium. "
(National anthem)
