Awesome: The Ten Commandments
  • The iconic scene where God delivers The Ten Commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai.
  • Charlton Heston shows us just how much of a Badass Moses probably was in his time.
    • Moses pwning Rameses with plain logic and reason as to why he gave the grain belonging to the temple and one day's rest to the slaves. As Moses confirms why he did what he did to Sethi, Rameses tips the scales against him by dropping small weights onto the scale, a proverbial 'scale of accusations,' in his favor. When the Pharoah wants to know why...
    Moses: A city is built of brick, Pharoah. The strong make many. The starving make few. (drops brick on his side of the scale, tipping it in his favor) The dead make none. So much for accusations.
  • The parting of the Red Sea.
  • Nefertiti gets a minor one on Ramses. With a kiss no less, she did it to show how much she loves Moses and hates Ramses in an impressive Take That.
    Nefertiti: Did you think that was a promise of what you will have? (laughs) No. That was to show you what you will never have...
  • "His god... is God."
