“I told you guys, ‘Be good. I’m just going up the mountain to talk to Jehovah.’ I come back and you’ve gone feral!”

“Lighten up, Moses, it’s just a golden calf and some wine… I mean, really, what’s the big deal?”

“That’s it! I’ve had it with you guys. I give up my shot at Pharoah, lead you idiots out of Egypt (you remember the whole parting the waters thing, right?), get J to give you food, water, even these cool pillar things to follow so you don’t get lost – and this is the thanks I get? Honestly, I don’t know why I bother.”

“Oh yeah, well, ummm, we forgot? We’ll be good, I promise. No more calves or nothin’. We’ll get rid of it… “

“You mean it this time? Now, I seem to have dropped those tablets I was carrying… dammit. I’ll be back in a bit. You guys behave – this time I mean it!”
