One Night with the King quotes

  • Queen Esther: [daunted by Xerxes's anouncement, to Jesse] Nor there's not to be a Queen here any longer. Mordecai has given me his blessing. Let us leave tomorrow. Together.

  • Mordecai: [worried, about the search for a new Queen] There's no need for alarm. Nor likelihood they will not come for you. And not all who taken will be chosen. Not that the Queen has already been selected through bribery or chicanery.

    Queen Esther: [distressed] How do I keep our laws? How do I pray? What excuse do I offer God for not keeping his commandments?

    Queen Esther: If I am taken, I will do as you say.

    Queen Esther: I said if I am taken. If, if, if...

    Mordecai: Uh Hadassah?

    Queen Esther: [singing, before she leaves] Who?
