The Nativity Story (2006)
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]
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: 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.
Mary: A husband has been chosen for me, how is he to believe this?
King Herod: I will end this threat to my rule.
[Herod then sends all his guards to kill any child under 2 years old - or any woman carrying a child]
Townswoman: No, not my child.
[a man tries to steal their money]
Joseph: What comes with us, stays with us.
Melchior: How many days have you come with us on this journey?
Gaspar: One hundred and four.
Melchior: And how many days have you complained about it?
Gaspar: One hundred and five.
[Melchior looks at him confused]
Gaspar: ... I am counting tomorrow.
King Herod: I once had a wife who betrayed me. Two sons did the same... before your time.
King Herod: Where are they now?
Antipas: No more.
Mary: [places hand over stomach for a moment and then runs over to Elizabeth] He's moving!
Elizabeth: [smiles] Mine too.
Joseph: [Villagers are glaring and glancing sullenly at them as they leave] They're going to miss us.
