VeggieTales: Esther: The Girl Who Became Queen  Season #2 Episode #14

Synopsis: Esther... The Girl Who Became Queen is the VeggieTales special presentation, marked as the show's fourteenth episode. It is based on the story of Esther from the Old Testament, with elements from Paramount Pictures' The Godfather and Warner Bros' Casablanca.
Genre: Animation

(Episode opens at a palace in Persia at night.)

A wiseman once said not to be afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some of greatness thrust upon him.

(Scene switches to the outside windows of the palace, where Haman, in silhouette, knocks on the door of the Queen's bedroom.)

Queen Vashti:
Who is it?

Mr. Lunt/Haman:
Um... Your highness. Uh... The king was wondering... if you could make him a sandwich.

(Queen Vashti answers the door, in silhouette.)

Queen Vashti:
It's 3:00 in the morning.

Uh... Yeah. But uh... he says that he's the king and whatever he says go.

Queen Vashti:
Well I'm the queen, and the king can make his own sandwich.


(Haman throws Queen Vashti out of the palace.)

Queen Vashti:
You can't do this to me! I'm the queen!

Oh, ho, you wanna bet? (throws a suitcase at Queen Vashti) The king can do whatever he wants! He's the king. (Queen Vashti leaves, as King Xerxes comes up to the door) And don't come back!

Mr. Nezzer/King Xerxes: Don't you think that might have been a little harsh?

Oh, no way. If she got away with that, no one would listen to you.

King Xerxes:
Well, What am I gonna do now?

It looks like we're gonna have to find you a new queen.

King Xerxes:
Hmm. Make me a sandwich.

This is the story of a great person. It's hard to say whether our hero was born that way, or was just placed in the right place at the right time and decided to to the right thing. I suppose you could be the judge of that. Oh, and one more thing, our hero isn't a king. Just an ordinary girl.

(The camera zooms to the palace as night turns to day. As this happens, subtitles say "Big Idea Productions Presents", and then the episode's title is revealed.)

Pa Grape/Mordecai: Now wait a minute, wait a minute, Essie.


Let me see if I got this. You saw your friend steal an apple.

Yeah, that's right.

Now, it wasn't hers, but she stole it.


And now you don't know what to do.

Yeah what should I do?

What do you think you should do?

Well, uh. I suppose I tell her it was wrong and that she should pay for it.

Sounds like a good answer!

Yeah but I'm...I'm too scared.


Yeah, Cousin Mordecai?

How long have I been your cousin?

Well, uh... pretty much forever.

Eh, give or take. Have I ever steered you wrong?

Well, no I guess.

You never need to be afraid to do what's right. Do you remember that song your grandmother used to sing?

Um... You mean the one about God being on our side and not having to be afraid? Yeah, I remember that one.


But what if she doesn't want to be my friend anymore?

Oh, Essie. You can do the right thing, and they are problems out there, a lot bigger than stolen apples.

(Haman comes with his car.)

(gasps) Like that one! It's Haman! That guy hates me! I gotta get scarce! (Hides behind the bulletin board.)

Ahem! Make way for Haman, the king's right hand man!

(Jumps on the trunk, which opens, and Haman lands on the roof of the wagon and smiles.) Hello people of Persia! His royal highness, King Xerxes, finds himself for reasons that do not concern you, in need of a new queen! (Crowd gasps) So, I would like to ask all eligible young ladies to please come with me! (Opens the wagon door and four of the ladies in the square get inside. Esther tries to get away, but Haman notices her) Um, young lady? That means you.
