Jesus: The end is just a little harder when brought about by friends. For all you care, this wine could be my blood. For all you care, this bread could be my body. The end. This is my blood you drink, this is my body you eat. If you could, remember me when you eat and drink.
Jesus: Why waste your breath moaning at the crowd? Nothing can be done to stop the shouting! If every tongue were stilled, the noise would still continue! The rocks and stones themselves would start to sing.
Jesus: Can you show me now that I will not be killed in vain? Show me just a little of your omnipresent brain! Show me there's a reason for your wanting me to die! You're far too keen on where and how, but not so hot on why.
Caiaphas: We need a more permanent solution to our problem.
Judas: You sad pathetic man! See where you've brought us to? Our ideals die around us, and all because of you.
Jesus: Spare me your speeches, I don't want to know. Go, now, go.
Pontius Pilate: I see no reason! I find no evil! This man is harmless, so why does he upset you? He's just misguided! Thinks he's important! But to keep you vultures happy, I shall f-log him.
Jesus: Then, I was inspired. Now, I'm sad and tired. After all, I've tried for three years, seems like thirty.
Jesus: Surely you're not saying we have the resources to save the poor from their lot? There will be poor always, pathetically struggling, look at the good things you've got! Think while you still have me, move while you still need me. You'll be lost and you'll be sorry when I'm gone.
Pontius Pilate: 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.
Jesus: Will no-one stay awake for me? Peter? John? James? Will none of you wait for me? Peter? John? James?
Crowd Soloists: Tell me, Christ, how you feel tonight! Do you plan to put up a fight? Do you feel that you've had the breaks? What would you say were your big mistakes? Do you think that you may retire? Did you think you would get much higher? How do you view your coming trial? Have your men proved at all worthwhile?
Caiaphas: One thing I'll say for him, Jesus is cool.
King Herod: I only ask things I'd ask any superstar. What is it that you have got that puts you where you are?
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! We need him crucified, it's all you have to do.
Jesus: You liar, you Judas.
Jesus: Why should I die? Would I be more noticed than I ever was before? Would the things I've said and done matter anymore?
Judas: All your followers are blind, too much heaven on their minds.
Caiaphas: Fools! You have no perception! The stakes we are gambling are frighteningly high. We must crush him completely! So like John before him, this Jesus must die.
Pontius Pilate: Talk to me, Jesus Christ! You have been brought here, manacled, beaten by your own people! Do you have the first idea why you deserve it? Listen, King of the Jews, where is your kingdom? Look at me! Am I a Jew?
Jesus: I have no kingdom. In this world, I'm through.
Crowd: Talk to me, Jesus Christ.
Jesus: There may be a kingdom for me somewhere, if you only knew.
