# Grow, baby brother #

- # Come back someday #

- Mmm.

# Come and deliver us too #

Mommy!

Come, Rameses. We will show Pharaoh

your new baby brother-

Moses.

# Deliver us #

# Send a shepherd

to shepherd us #

# And deliver us #

# To the Promised Land #

# Deliver us #

# To the Promised #

# Land #

# Deliver us ##

- Ha, ha!

- Faster, you beasts!

You run like mules.

- Hey, Rameses, how'd you like your

face carved on a wall? - Someday, yes.

How about now?

You almost killed me!

Oh, come on.

Where's your sense of fun?

Oh, it's fun you want?

Whoa!

Whoa! Aah!

Ohh. Moses?

Whoa!

Whoa!

Whoa!

Come on, you.

Whoa!

Come on, Moses. Admit it.

You've always looked up to me.

Yes, but it's

not much of a view.

Hyah! Whoo!

Hey!

- Second born, second place.

- Not for long.

Whoa!

- Whoa!

- Aah! Aaah!

&ump!

Whoa!

Whoo!

You don't think we'll

get in trouble for this, do you?

No, not a chance.

Why do the gods

torment me...

with such reckless,

destructive,

- blasphemous sons?

- Father, hear what I-

Be still!

Pharaoh speaks.

I seek to build

an empire,

and your only thought

is to amuse yourselves...

by tearing it down.

Have I taught you nothing?

You mustn't be so hard on yourself, Your

Ma&esty. You're an excellent teacher.

It's not your fault

your sons learned nothing.

- They learned blasphemy.

- True.

Father,

the fault is mine.

I goaded Rameses on,

and so I am responsible.

Hmm.

Responsible.

Do you know the meaning

of that word, Rameses?

I understand, Father.

And do you understand the task for which

your birth has destined you?

The ancient traditions.

When I pass

into the next world,

then you will be

the morning and evening star.

One damaged temple does not

destroy centuries of tradition.

But one weak link

can break the chain...

of a mighty dynasty!

You have my leave to go.

Father.

Father?

You know it was

really my fault.

Must you be

so hard on him?

Moses, you will never

have to carry a burden...

like the crown

I will pass to Rameses.

He must not allow himself

to be led astray,

not even by you, my son.

All he cares about is-

is your approval.

I know he will live up

to your expectations.

He only needs

the opportunity.

Maybe. Maybe so.

Go now. I shall

see you both tonight.

- Well, that went well.

- &ust go away.

Could have been worse.

"The weak link in the chain. "

That's what he called me.

Well, you are

rather pathetic.

Irresponsible,

ignorant of the traditions.

He practically accused me

of bringing down the dynasty.

Yeah, I can see it now.

There go the pyramids!

You can laugh about it.

Statues cracking and toppling over.

The Nile drying up.

Single-handedly, you will manage to bring

the greatest kingdom on Earth to ruin.

Tell me this, Moses.

Why is it that every time

you start something,

I'm the one

who ends up in trouble?

Ah, man! Oh.

- Ah, it's Rameses. You're in trouble.

- Get down here!

- I think you owe us an apology.

- Oh, my new thing!

- I am so upset!

- You might as well.

- You'll pay for this.

- We're gonna tell the Pharaoh!

Hmm.

- Oh, look at me. I'm drenched again.

- Hey. I figured it out.

- You know what your problem is, Rameses?

- What?

- You care too much. - And your

problem is, you don't care at all.

Oh, in that case, I suppose

you care a lot more than I do...

that we're late for the banquet,

for example.

I'm done for.

- Father will kill me.

- Don't worry.

Nobody will even

notice us coming in.

"Nobody will

even notice. "

Ah, the young princes.

Rameses, you were &ust

named prince regent.

You are now responsible

for overseeing all the temples.

I suggest

you get over there...

and thank your father.

Apparently, Moses,

someone thought he...

&ust needed

the opportunity.

My lord Pharaoh.

I propose that the high priests

offer tribute...

to their new regent.

An excellent idea.

Hotep! Huy!

- Huy.

- Hmm?
