- Ha, ha!
Rameses: Faster, you beasts! You run like mules.
Moses: Hey, Rameses, how’d you like your face carved on a wall?
Rameses: Someday, yes.
Moses: How about now?!
(Moses' chariot bumps into Rameses' chariot for his wheel scratching and tumbles.)
Rameses: Aah! You almost killed me!
Moses: Oh, come on. Where’s your sense of fun?
Rameses: Oh, it’s fun you want?
Whoa! Whoa! Aah! Ohh.
Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Come on, you. Whoa!
Rameses: Come on, Moses. Admit it. You’ve always looked up to me.
Moses: Yes, but it’s not much of a view.
Hyah! Whoo! Hey!
Rameses: Second born, second place.
Moses: Not for long.
-Whoa! Whoa! Aah! Aaah! Whoa! Whoo!
Rameses: You don’t think we’ll get in trouble for this, do you?
Moses: No, not a chance.
Pharaoh Seti: Why do the gods torment me… with such reckless, destructive, -blasphemous sons?
Rameses: Father, hear what I-
Pharaoh Seti: Be still! Pharaoh speaks. I seek to build an empire, and your only thought is to amuse yourselves… by tearing it down. Have I taught you nothing?
Hotep: You mustn’t be so hard on yourself, Your Majesty. You’re an excellent teacher.
Huy: It’s not your fault your sons learned nothing.
Hotep: They learned blasphemy.
Moses: Father, the fault is mine. I goaded Rameses on, and so I am responsible.
Pharaoh Seti: Hmm. Responsible. Do you know the meaning of that word, Rameses?
Rameses: I understand, Father.
Pharaoh Seti: And do you understand the task for which your birth has destined you? The ancient traditions. When I pass into the next world, then you will be the morning and evening star.
Rameses: One damaged temple does not destroy centuries of tradition.
Pharaoh Seti: But one weak link can break the chain… of a mighty dynasty! You have my leave to go.
Moses: Father. Father? You know it was really my fault. Must you be so hard on him?
Pharaoh Seti: Moses, you will never have to carry a burden… like the crown I will pass to Rameses. He must not allow himself to be led astray, not even by you, my son.
Pharaoh Seti: All he cares about is- is your approval. I know he will live up to your expectations. He only needs the opportunity.
Pharaoh Seti: Maybe. Maybe so. Go now. I shall see you both tonight.
Moses: Well, that went well.
Rameses: Just go away.
Moses: Could have been worse.
Rameses: "The weak link in the chain. " That’s what he called me.
Moses Well, you are rather pathetic.
Rameses: Irresponsible, ignorant of the traditions. He practically accused me of bringing down the dynasty.
Moses: Yeah, I can see it now. There go the pyramids!
Rameses: You can laugh about it.
Moses: Statues cracking and toppling over. The Nile drying up. Single-handedly, you will manage to bring the greatest kingdom on Earth to ruin.
Rameses: Tell me this, Moses. Why is it that every time you start something, I’m the one who ends up in trouble?
Hotep: Ah, man!
Hotep: Ah, Rameses. You’re in trouble, young man!
Huy: Rameses, get down here! I think you owe us an apology
Hotep: Oh, my new thing! I am so upset!
Moses: You might as well.
Huy: By the power of Ra, you’ll pay for this!
Hotep: We’re gonna tell the Pharaoh!
Hotep: Oh, look at me. I’m drenched again.
Moses: Hey. I figured it out. You know what your problem is, Rameses?
Moses: You care too much.
Rameses: And your problem is, you don’t care at all.
Moses: Oh, in that case, I suppose you care a lot more than I do… that we’re late for the banquet, for example.
Rameses: I’m done for! Father will kill me!
Moses: Don’t worry. Nobody will even notice us coming in.
Rameses: "Nobody will even notice."
Queen Taya: Ah, the young princes. Rameses, you were just named prince regent. You are now responsible for overseeing all the temples. I suggest you get over there… and thank your father. Apparently, Moses, someone thought he… just needed the opportunity.
Moses: My lord Pharaoh. I propose that the high priests offer tribute… to their new regent.
Pharaoh Seti: An excellent idea. Hotep! Huy!
Hotep:The Midian girl.
Huy: That’s a good idea!
Hotep: Go get her. By the power of Ra, we present for your delectation and delight… an exotic apparition stolen from a faraway land. We offer you this delicate desert flower.
Rameses: Let us inspect this… desert flower. More like a desert cobra.
Moses: Not much of a snake charmer, are you?
Rameses: That’s why I give her to you.
Moses: No, that’s generous, but-
Tzipporah: I won’t be given to anyone. Especially an arrogant, pampered palace brat!
Rameses: Are you going to let her talk to you like that?
Moses: You will show the proper respect for a prince of Egypt.
Tzipporah: But I am showing you all the respect you deserve- none!
Moses: No. Wait! - Be still.
Tzipporah: Untie this rope! - I demand you set me free!
Moses: Be still.
Tzipporah: Let go!
Moses: As you wish.
Rameses: You there! Have her dried off… and sent to Prince Moses’ chambers. If it pleases you, Father, my first act as regent… is to appoint Moses… as royal chief… architect.
Moses: Well- Right.
Tzipporah: Shh. Come on.
Guards: Prince Moses.
(So Moses starts thinking, while Tzipporah peeks.)
Moses: Uh… there’s a-a man tied up in my room.
Moses: Well, look into it.
Guards: Right away, sire.
(When Moses starts running outside, he sees Tzipporah riding her camel because she has to go back to oasis, and Moses follows her. Camera fades to the Hebrews' huts.)
Tzipporah: Please, I need water. I have a long journey ahead of me.
(Miriam gives water to Tzipporah when she's ready.)
Miriam: May God protect you.
Tzipporah: Thank you.
(While Moses hides, the camel stands up and Tzipporah is about to leave.)
(The camel runs off, then Moses is done hiding, he saw a camel running to oasis with Tzipporah, but suddenly the vase broke to pieces.)
Miriam: Oh. Oh, oops. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. I- Oh, please forgive me. I- I didn’t expect to see… you… here, of all places, at-at-at our door. - Mmm, at last!
Moses: At last?
Miriam: Didn’t I tell you, Aaron? I knew he would return to us when he was ready.
Aaron: Miriam, do you want us flogged?
Miriam: I knew you cared about our freedom.
Moses: Freedom? Why would I care about that?
Miriam: Because you’re- well, you’re our brother.
Miriam: Be- - They never told you?
Moses: Who never told me what?
Miraim: But you’re here. You must know.
Moses: Be careful, slave!
Aaron: Oh, my good prince. Um, she’s-she’s exhausted from the day’s work. Uh, not that it was too much. We- We quite enjoyed it. But-But she’s confused and knows not to whom she speaks.
Miriam: I know to whom I speak, Aaron. I know who you are. - You are not a prince of Egypt.
Moses: What did you say?
Aaron: Your Highness, pay her no heed. C- Come, Miriam. May I discuss something with you?
Miriam: No, Aaron. No! Please, Moses, you must believe!
Moses: That’s enough.
Miriam: You were born of my mother, Yocheved.
Aaron: Stop it.
Miriam: You are our brother!
Moses: Now you go too far. You shall be punished.
Aaron: No! Please, uh, Your Highness. She’s ill. She’s very ill. We beg your forgiveness. - Please, Miriam, let us go.
Miraim: No, Aaron. Our mother set you adrift in a basket to save your life!
Moses: Save my life? From who?
Miriam: Ask the man that you call "Father. "
Moses: How dare you?
Miriam: God saved you to be our deliverer.
Moses: Enough of this.
Miriam: And you are, Moses. You are the deliverer.
Moses: I said, enough! You will regret this night.
Miriam: ♪ Hush now, my baby ♪ ♪ Be still, love Don’t cry ♪ ♪ Sleep as you’re rocked ♪ ♪ By the stream ♪ ♪ Sleep and remember ♪ ♪ My last lullaby ♪ ♪ So I’ll be with you ♪ ♪ When you dream ♪♪

Pharaoh Seti: The Hebrews grew too numerous. They might have risen against us.
Moses: Father, tell me you didn’t do this.
Pharaoh Seti: Moses, sometimes, for the greater good, sacrifices must be made.
Pharaoh Seti: Oh, my son. They were only slaves.
Queen Taya: Moses?
Moses: Is this where you found me?
Queen Taya: Moses, please try to understand.
Moses: So- So everything I thought, everything I am, is a lie.
Queen Taya: No. You are our son, and we love you.
Moses: Why did you choose me?
Queen Taya: We didn’t, Moses. The gods did. [Singing] ♪ This is your home my son ♪ ♪ Here the river brought you ♪ ♪ And it’s here the river meant ♪ ♪ To be your home ♪ ♪ Now you know the truth, love ♪ ♪ Now forget and be content ♪ ♪ When the gods send you a blessing ♪ ♪ You don’t ask why it was sent ♪♪
Rameses: Last night, the gods granted me a vision. I’m not merely going to restore this temple, I will make it more grand, more splendid than any other one in Egypt. [voice fades]
Man: Get up!
Rameses: Moses! Look. Fate has turned our little misadventure into a great opportunity.
Gaurd: Get up, old man!
Rameses: Father will be so pleased
Gaurd: Put your back into it! Faster!
Rameses: This is &ust the beginning. A gateway will open to an entire new city of white limestone, more dazzling than the sun. And here, a statue of Hapi.
Guard: I said, hurry!
Rameses: … two great column halls.
Miriam [in the distance]: Stop it! - Somebody’s got to stop this!
Aaron: [also sounding far off] There’s nothing we can do.
Moses: [whispering gradually then shouting] Stop it. Stop. Stop it! - Leave that man alone!
Gaurd: Out of my way. Out of my way. Move! Who did this?
Man: Up there! It’s him. Up there.
(Moses is busy right now, but then runs off and got chased by Miriam or not. We called it "Runaway Moses" as he trips with sand dust, but he runs and caught up by Rameses.)
Rameses: Moses, what’s going on? Moses! Moses! Moses!
Moses: Let me go!
Rameses: No, wait.
Moses: You saw what happened. I just killed a man.
Rameses: We can take care of that. I will make it so it never happened.
Moses: Nothing you can say can change what I’ve done.
Rames:I am Egypt, the morning and the evening star. If I say day is night, it will be written, and you will be what I say you are. I say you are innocent.
Moses: What you say does not matter. You don’t understand. I can’t stay here any longer.
Moses: No! All I’ve ever known to be true is a lie. I’m not who you think I am.
Rameses: What are you talking about?
Moses: Go ask the man I once called "Father. "
Rameses:[sort of whispering] Moses. Please?
Moses: Good-bye, brother.
Rameses: [in the distance] Moses! Moses!
Moses: No. Aah! Aaah! Hey, wait. Please. Ohh! Oh!
Girl: What are you doing? Help! Let our sheep drink! Leave us alone! Get away! Stop it! My father’s the high priest of Midian. You’re going to be in big trouble.
Moses: Hey, you. Aren’t these your camels? - Hut-hut!
Man: No, no! No, no! - Wait! - Wait, stop!
Tzipporah: What are you girls doing?
Girl: We’re trying to get the funny man out of the well.
Tzipporah: Trying to get the funny man out of the well. Well, that’s one I’ve never heard before. Oh, my. Oh, uh, don’t worry down there! Uh, we’ll get you out. Hold on! You.
Tzipporah: Hmm.... [lets go of rope] Mm-hmm.
Girl: That’s why Papa says she’ll never get married.
Moses: You don’t have to do this. Ladies, please, I’m really- I’m really quite- No, not there, please. That tickles. Ladies, you’ve cleaned every inch of me. Whoa, I- I was wrong.
Jethro Let me through. Let me through. I want to see him. Ah! You are most welcome. You should not be a stranger in this land. You have been sent as a blessing. Tonight, you shall be my honored guest.
Tzipporah: My father, Jethro, High Priest of Midian.
(That night, as Moses gets out of the tent, he looks at the children hanging out at a campfire.)
Girl: Psst. Sit with me.
Moses: Um, all right.
(Moses sits down and grabs an an orange to eat from a bowl of fruit)
Girl: Psst. Not yet.
Moses: Oh! sorry.
(He puts the orange back in the bowl)
Jethro: My children, let us give thanks for this bountiful food. And let us also give thanks for the presence… of this brave, young man whom we honor here tonight.
Moses: Please, sir, I wish you wouldn’t. I’ve done nothing in my life worth honoring.
Jethor: First, you rescue Tzipporah from Egypt, then you defend my younger daughters from brigands. You think that is nothing? It seems you do not know what is worthy of honor.

Moses: Mmm. I love you. [talking to a sheep which ran off] It’s too early for this.
God: Moses. Moses. Moses.
Moses: Here I am.
God: Take the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you stand is holy ground.
Moses: Who are you?
God: I am that I am.
Moses: I don’t understand.
God: I am the God of your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Miriam: [sounding far off] You were born of my mother, Yocheved. You are our brother.
Moses: What do You want with me?
God: I have seen the oppression of My people in Egypt… and have heard their cry.
Moses: [sounding far off] Stop it! Leave that man alone!
God: So I have come down to deliver them out of slavery… and bring them to a good land, a land flowing with milk and honey. And so, unto Pharaoh, I shall send… you.
Moses: Me? Wh-Who am I to lead these people? They’ll never believe me. They won’t even listen.
God: I shall teach you what to say. [Moses sounding far off] Let my people go!
Moses: But I was their enemy. I was the prince of Egypt, the son of the man who slaughtered their children. You’ve- You’ve chosen the wrong messenger. H- How can I even speak to these people?
God: [angered] Who made man’s mouth? Who made the deaf, the mute, the seeing or the blind? Did not I? Now go! [a bit more softly] Oh, Moses, I shall be with you when you go to the king of Egypt. But Pharaoh will not listen. So I will stretch out My hand… and smite Egypt… with all My wonders. Take the staff in your hand, Moses. With it, you shall do My wonders. I shall be with you, Moses. [echo] Moses. Moses.
[Moses rushes off to tell his wife what happened]
Tzipporah: [sits down on blankets in disbelief] But, Moses, you are just one man.
Moses: Tzipporah, please. Look at your family. They are free. They have a future. They have hopes and dreams… and the promise of a life with dignity. That is what I want for my people. And that is why I must do the task… that God has given me.
Tzipporah: I’m coming with you.
Rameses: Moses? Is it really? Moses!
Rameses: Where have you been? I took you for dead.
Moses: Look at you! Pharaoh.
Rameses: Well, look at you. What on earth are you dressed as?
Moses: Oh, Rameses, it’s so good to see you.
Hotep: Excuse me, Your Majesty. We are compelled to remind you this man committed a serious crime against the gods.
Huy: We are loathe to bring it up, mind you.
Hotep: The law clearly states the punishment for such a crime...
Hotep: We hesitate to say it.
Rameses: Be still. Pharaoh speaks. I am the morning and the evening star.
Rameses: It shall be as I say. I pardon forever all crimes of which he stands accused… and will have it known that he is… our brother Moses, the prince of Egypt.
Moses: Rameses, in my heart, you are my brother, but things cannot be as they were.
Rameses: I see no reason why not
Moses: You know I am a Hebrew, and the God of the Hebrews came to me.
Moses: He commands that you let His people go.
Moses: [raises staff] Behold… the power of God [puts staff down steps back while staff transforms into a snake]
Rameses: Well, uh, impressive. Hmm. Very well, Moses. I’ll play along. Hotep. Huy. Give this snake charmer our answer.

[Moses picks up snake which then transforms back into a staff]
Rameses: All right, Moses. I know you. What’s this really about?
Moses: Rameses, look. What do you see?
Rameses: A greater Egypt than that of my father.
Moses: That is not what I see.
Rameses: Moses, I cannot change what you see. I have to maintain the ancient traditions. I bear the weight of my father’s crown.
Moses: Do you still not understand what Seti was?
Rameses: He was a great leader.
Moses: His hands bore the blood of thousands of children.
Rameses: Hmph. Slaves.
Moses: My people. And I can no longer hide in the desert while they suffer… at your hands.
Rameses: [disapointed] So… you have returned… only to free them.
Moses: I’m sorry. [takes off ring and places it on the arm rest of chair]
Rameses: [grabs ring and looks at it] Yes. I had hoped… that- [stands up from where he is sitting] I do not know this God. Neither will I let your people go.
Moses: Rameses, please, you must listen-
Rameses: I will not be the weak link! Tell your people as of today… their workload has been doubled, thanks to your God. Or is it thanks… to you?
Man: It’s Moses.
[slave throws mud at Moses's face causing him to slip and fall into more mud]
Tzipporah: Moses! [rushes down to help him up]
Aaron: [walks over ] So, Moses, how does it feel when you get struck to the ground?
Moses: I didn’t mean to cause you more pain. I’m just trying to do as God told me.
Aaron: God? When did God start caring about any of us? In fact, Moses, when did you start caring about slaves? Was it when you found out that you were one of us?
Tzipporah: Don’t listen to him.
Moses: No, he’s... he’s right. I did not see because I did not wish to see.
Aaron: Oh, you didn’t see because you didn’t wish to see. Ah! Well, that makes everything fine then, doesn’t it?
Miriam: Aaron! You shame yourself.
Moses: Miriam. I’m so sorry.
Miriam: Moses, hear what I say. I have been a slave… all my life, and God has never answered my prayers until now. God saved you from the river, He saved you in all your wanderings, and even now He saves you from the wrath of Pharaoh. God will not abandon you, so don’t you abandon us.
[Moses stands up and walks away Tzipporah and Miriam also follow but then a crowd of people follow too and Aaron loses sight of Miraim]
Aaron: Miriam. Where are you going? M- Miriam.
[Rameses, his son hotep and huy are on a boat on the nile]
Hotep: The ball disappears. Where is it? In his hand.
Moses: Rameses! Let my people go!
Rameses: Still gnawing away at that bone, are we? Carry on.
Moses: You cannot keep ignoring us.
Rameses: Enough! I will hear no more of this Hebrew nonsense. Bring him to me.
[Guards jump out of boat with drawn swords and are heading towards shore to kill Moses]
Tzipporah: Moses! [tries to rush to him]
God: Take the staff in your hand, Moses.
[Moses raises his staff a bit while looking up at the sky a few seconds later he looks down and sets his staff down in the water turning it to blood]
Rameses's son: [is laying on edge of boat reaches out to touch the blood] Father-
Gaurds: Blood! Blood! Oh, blood!
[The gaurds panic as they realize what it is and rush back to the boat, one slips and the others reach the boat but 'spill' some blood onto the floor and on Rameses, Rameses steps back]
Rameses: Hotep! Huy! Explain this to me!
Huy: Rest assured, Your Majesty
Hotep: Uh, yes, we were going to demonstrate the superior might… of our gods. Uh- By the power of Ra! [pours some water into a bowl then sets jug down and mixes a pouder like substance into it making the water turn to blood]
Rameses: [dips hand into bowl chuckles then laughs] Abandon this futile mission, Moses. I’ve indulged you long enough. This must now be finished.
Moses: No, Rameses. It is only beginning.
Aaron: But, Moses, d-didn’t you see what happened? The priests did the same thing. Pharaoh still has the power over our lives.
Moses: Yes, Aaron, it’s true. Pharaoh has the power. He can take away your food, your home, your freedom. He can take away your sons and daughters. With one word, Pharaoh can take away your very lives. But there is one thing he cannot take away from you: your faith. Believe, for we will see God’s wonders

Moses: Rameses? Rameses? Oh.
Rameses: Let me guess. You want me to… let your people go. [takes a sip of his drink]
Moses: I hoped I would find you here.
Rameses: Get out! [Rameses throws cup glass at Moses and breaks]
Moses: Rameses, we must bring this to an end. Rameses, please, talk to me. We could always talk here. This place. So many memories. I remember the time you… switched the heads of the gods of the temple of Ra.
Rameses: If I recall correctly, you were there switching heads right along with me.
Moses: No, it was you. I didn’t do that.
Rameses: [gets down from where he is sitting] Oh, yes, you did. You put the hippo on the crocodile, and the crocodile-
Moses: On the falcon.
Rameses: Yes! The priest thought it was a horrible omen and fasted for two months. Father was furious! You were always getting me into trouble. [turns around and beings to walk away] But then-[turns around to face Moses] you were always there to… get me out of trouble again.Why can’t things be the way they were before [takes a step forward]
Rameses's son: Father. It’s so dark. I’m frightened. [Rameses turns a bit surprised to face his son and walks over to comfort him a bit] Why is he here? Isn’t that the man who did all this?
Rameses: Yes. But one must wonder… why.
Moses: Because no kingdom should be made on the backs of slaves. Rameses, your stubbornness is bringing this misery upon Egypt. It would cease if only you would let the Hebrews go.
Rameses: I will not be dictated to. I will not be threatened. I am the morning and the evening star. I am Pharaoh.
Moses: Something else is coming. Something much worse than anything before. Please, let go of your contempt for life… before it destroys everything you hold dear. Think of your son!
Rameses: I do. You Hebrews have been nothing but trouble. My father had the right idea about how to deal with your people-
Rameses: And I think it’s time I finished the job
Rameses: -And there shall be a great cry in all of Egypt… such as never has been or ever will be again!
Moses: Rameses... you bring this upon yourself.
[Later that late night, this is the last plague of the firstborn of death]
Moses: God has come to me again, saying, "Take a lamb… and with its blood… mark the lintel and posts of every door, for tonight… I shall pass through the land of Egypt… and smite all the firstborn. But when I see the blood upon your door… I will pass over you, and the plague shall not enter.
[A portal opens in the sky and a spirit is seen passing around houses avoiding the ones with blood on the door but entering into the ones which do not. It isn't exactly shown but it takes the lives of any first-born then leaves and continues through Egypt. A few moments later the spirit returns to the portal and the portal closes. Rameses is shown carrying his son (who died) and placing him on a table then covering him with a white cloth. Moses can be seen approaching from behind him]
Rameses: You and your people… have my permission to go. [Moses puts a hand on his shoulder, and Rameses moves away while whisper shouting] Leave me!
[Moses is then seen walking around but then leans against a wall and begins crying as he slowly sits down on some stairs behind him. A bit later Moses is walking back to the place where he is staying at the moment, and Tzipporah walks out and hugs him then Miriam walks out of the house]

[Moses and all of the Hebrews successfully make it to the Red Sea. The Hebrews are ready to take a break, feed the animals and give water to the old but then a horn blows and everyone looks up to see Rameses and an army arrive)
(Rameses and his army charged down the hill and all the Hebrews being to panic and try to get as far as they can from the Egyptians. A storm cloud appears and we see lightning at the Red Sea. God summoned a fire tornado. The fire tornado blocks Rameses and his soldiers from reaching the Hebrews. Camera zooms out to the Hebrews looking at Moses. Moses walks into the waters of the Red Sea holding a staff up high)
God: With this staff, you shall do… My wonders!
[Moses hits the water with his staff and the waters part way for the Hebrews, but they are unsure and none of them cross over till Aaron steps out of the crowd and begins walking towards the other side of the read sea and the rest of the Hebrews follow]
[a wagon gets stuck and a person tries to get it to move]
Moses: Leave it!
[The Hebrews keep walking but it gets dark so Tzipporah lights up a torch and then lights someone eles's torch and they all eventually light can see. We see some fish and a whale and a few moments later the Hebrews are almost to the other side]
Aaron: [Camel gnarls and rests it's head on Aaron's shoulder, Aaron pats it's head] Yeah, me too.
[Moses is trying to help an old Hebrew but then then the fire tornado stops and disappears]
Rameses: Don’t just stand there! Kill them! Kill them all!
Moses: The soldiers! They’re coming!
[everyone tries to run away]
Aaron: Moses! Moses! - Hurry! Hurry! I got you.
Man: Look! The shore!
[Everyone makes it safely out, but once they get out of the path the water falls down upon the soldiers, drowning them.]
Rameses: [Gets pushed away by all the force of air and water pushing him while yelling] NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
[there's silence but then everyone cheers hugs and are really happy]
Moses: Thank you.
Rameses: [is seen kneeling on a rock shouting Moses's name sounding far off in the distance] Moses! Moses!
Moses: Good-bye, brother.
