"Great Performances: Jesus Christ Superstar (#29.11)" (2000)
Judas: I haven't thought at all about my own reward; I didn't really come here of my own accord. Just don't say I'm damned for all time!
Annas: Cut the protesting, forget the excuses. We want information, get up off the floor!
Caiaphas: We have the papers we need to arrest him. You know his movements, we know the law.
Annas: Your help in this matter will not go unrewarded.
Caiaphas: We'll pay you in silver, cash on the nail. We just need to know where the soldiers can find him...
Annas: With no crowd around him.
Caiaphas: Then we can't fail.
Judas: I don't need your blood money!
Caiaphas: Oh, that doesn't matter, our expenses our good.
Judas: I don't want your blood money!
Annas: But you might as well take it. We think that you should.
Caiaphas: Think of the things you could do with that money. Choose any charity - give to the poor. We've noted your motives, we've noted your feelings. This isn't blood money, it's a fee, nothing... fee, nothing... fee, nothing more.

Pontious Pilate: Who is this broken man cluttering up my hallway? Who is this unfortunate?
Annas: Someone Christ, King of the Jews.
Pontious Pilate: Oh, so this is Jesus Christ; I am really quite surprised, you look so small! Not a king at all! We all know that you're a news, but are you King? King of the Jews?
Jesus: That's what you say.

Pontious Pilate: And so this king is once again my guest. And why is this? Was Herod unimpressed?
Caiaphas: We turn to Rome to sentence Nazareth. We have no law to put a man to death. We need him crucified. It's all you have to do.
Caiaphas, Annas: We need him crucified. It's all you have to do.


Jesus Christ Superstar (1973)
Annas: He's just another scripture thumping hack from Galilee.
Caiaphas: The difference is they call him king, the difference frightens me.

Judas: You beat him so hard that he was bent and lame; and I know who everybody's gonna blame! I don't believe he knows I acted for our good! I'd save him all this suffering if I could! Don't believe... our good... and I'd save him if I could!
Annas: Cut the confessions! Cut out the dramatics! I don't understand why you're filled with remorse! All that you've said has come true with avengeance! The mob turned against him, you backed the right horse!
Caiaphas: What you have done will mean the saving of Israel, you'll be remembered forever for this! Not only that, you've been paid for your efforts. Pretty good wages for one little kiss!


The Passion of the Christ (2004)
Annas: Yes, we'll listen to those that have heard your blashpemies. Good! Let's hear them!
Accuser: He cures the sick by magic! With the help of devils! I've seen it. He casts out devils, with the help of devils.
Accuser: He calls himself the King of the Jews!
Accuser: No, he calls himself the Son of God! He said he would destroy the Temple and rebuild it in three days!
Accuser: Worse! He claims he's the Bread of Life! And if we don't eat his flesh or drink his blood we won't inherit eternal life.
Caiphas: Silence! You're all under this man's spell. Either offer proof of his wrongdoing or be quiet!
Nicodemus: This entire proceeding is an outrage. All I've heard from these "witnesses" is mindless contradiction!
