Judas: Nazareth, your famous son should have stayed a great unknown. Like his father carving wood, he'd have made good. Tables, chairs and oaken chests would have suited Jesus best. He'd have cause nobody harm.

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.

Crowd: Talk to me, Jesus!

Pontious Pilate: Then you're a King?

Jesus: It's you who say I am! I know the truth, and find that I get damned!

Pontious Pilate: But what IS truth? Not easy to define! We both have truths! Are yours the same as mine?

Crowd: We have no king but Caesar!

Pontious Pilate: He's done no wrong! No, not the slightest thing!

Crowd: We have no king but Caesar! Curcify him!

Pontious Pilate: What is this new respect for Caesar? 'Til now this has been noticably LACKING! Who is this Jesus? Why is he different? You Jews produce messiahs by the sackful!

Crowd: We need him crucified! It's all you have to do! We need him crucified! It's all you have to do!

Pontious Pilate: Talk to me, Jesus Christ.

Pontious Pilate: Look at your Jesus Christ! I'll agree, he's mad! Ought to be locked up! But this is not a reason to destroy him! He's a sad little man! Not a king or a god! Not a thief! I need a crime!

Crowd: Kill him! He says he's God! He's a blasphemer! He'll conquer you and us, and even Caesar!

Jesus: That's what you say.

Pontious Pilate: Where are you from, Jesus? What do you want, Jesus? Tell me. You've got to be careful. You could be dead soon, could well be. Why do you not speak when I hold your life in my hands? How can you stay quiet? I don't believe you'd understand.

Jesus: You have nothing in your hands. Any power you have... comes to you from far beyond. Everything is fixed and you can't change it.

Pontious Pilate: You're a fool, Jesus Christ! How can I help you?

[crowd repeats "Remember Caesar! You have a duty, etc." two more times]

Pontious Pilate: [shouts] Don't let me *stop* your great self-destruction! Die if you want to, you misguided martyr! I wash my hands of your demolition! Die if you want to, you innocent... puppet!
