Elizabeth: Are you frightened?

Mary: Yes. A husband has been chosen for me. The law says I must remain pure for a year. How is he to believe this?

Elizabeth: Stay with us, then. We will pray for guidance.

Mary: Elizabeth, why is it me God has asked? I am nothing.

Elizabeth: Oh, child.

Anna: An angel told you this? That you will bear the son of God? Mary...

Mary: Elizabeth had a baby, even in her old age.

Joaquim: Elizabeth has a husband!

Anna: Women have been put to death for this. They could stone you in the streets.

Mary: Father, I have broken no vow.

Joaquim: You have broken every vow, Mary! Was it one of those soldiers? Was it?

Mary: I have told the truth. Whether you believe it is your choice, not mine.

Joseph: If I claim this child as mine, it will be lying. I would have broken a law laid down by God.

Mary: I would never ask you to lie.

Joseph: If I say this child is not mine, they will ask what I'm going to do. If I accuse you...

Mary: There is a will for this child greater than my fear of what they may do.

Joseph: "And you shall call his name Jesus, for it is he who will save his people from their sins." I know. Mary, God showed me. An angel came to me in my dream.

Mary: You believe me?

Joseph: I believe you. The child will need a father. I will declare him as my own.

Mary: People will not look at you the same. They will not look at us the same.

Joseph: You are my wife. I am your husband. That is all anyone need know.

Mary: You've never really told me of your dream.

Joseph: My dream?

[pause, he is teasing her and also contemplating his response]

Joseph: No.

Mary: Please, tell me.

Joseph: An angel came to me. He told me the child within you had been conceived by the Holy Spirit and that I should not be afraid.

Mary: Are you afraid?

Joseph: Yes.

[laughing]

Joseph: Are you?

Mary: Yes. Do you ever wonder when we'll know?

Joseph: Know what?

Mary: When he is more than just a child. Will it be something he says? A look in his eyes?

Joseph: I wonder if I will even be able to teach him anything.
