Nefretiri: But I have saved your son, Moses.
Moses: It is not my son who will die. It is... it is the firstborn of Egypt. It is your son, Nefretiri!
Nefretiri: No. You would not dare strike Pharaoh's son!
Moses: In the hardness of his heart, Pharaoh has mocked God and brings death to his own son!
Nefretiri: But he is my son, Moses. You would not harm my son.
Moses: By myself, I am nothing. It is the power of God which uses me to work His will.
Nefretiri: You would not let Him do this to me. I saved your son!
Moses: I cannot save yours.
Rameses: You will be my wife. You will come to me whenever I call you, and I will enjoy that very much - whether you enjoy it or not is your own affair. But I think you will.
Moses: It would take more than a man to deliver these people. It would take a God. But if I could free them...I would!
Rameses: "You have rat's ears and a ferret's nose." Dathan: "To use in your service, true son of Pharaoh." Rameses: "Add to them, the eyes of a weasel. And find me this would-be deliverer."
Sephora: "Which of my sisters did you choose?" Moses: "I made no choice, Sephora." Sephora: "She was very beautiful, wasn't she... this woman of Egypt, who left her scar upon your heart... Her skin was white, as curd? Her eyes, green as the cedars of Lebanon... Her lips, tamarisk honey... Like the breast of a dove, her arms were soft... And the wine of desire was in her veins..." Moses: "Yes... She was beautiful... As a jewel." Sephora: "A jewel has brilliant fire... but it gives no warmth." (cont'd)
Sephora: "...Our hands are not so soft, but they can serve. Our bodies not so white, but they are strong. Our lips are not perfume, but they speak the truth. Love is not an art to us... It's life to us. We are not dressed in gold, and fine linen. Strength and honor are our clothing. Our tents are not the columned halls of Egypt, but our children play happily before them. We can offer you little... but we offer all we have." Moses: "I have not little, Sephora. I have nothing." Sephora: "Nothing from some, is more than gold from others." Moses: "You would fill the emptiness of my heart?" Sephora: "I could never fill all of it, Moses. I shall not be jealous of a memory."
Nefretiri: "I could never love you." Rameses: "Does that matter? You will be my wife. You will come to me whenever I call you, and I will enjoy that very much. Whether you enjoy it or not is your own affair. But I think you will..."
