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.
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.
