Main Characters in this Episode
Rev. Ephram Samuels: Merely appreciating the evening; but I can't say I support what you have done - offering away our lands?
King Silas Benjamin: You don't support peace? After all your words, you'd rather war?
Rev. Ephram Samuels: I'd rather an undivided nation, as planned - as *promised*.
King Silas Benjamin: Those plans, those promises, weren't vouchsafed by treaty, by action - *I* did that. You come to my house, drink my scotch, criticize me?
Queen Rose Benjamin: I thought we agreed to no politics.
King Silas Benjamin: This is beyond politics. The reverend has recently made this... personal.
Rev. Ephram Samuels: Ma'am - you have brought art to Shiloh and music to hearts. You have raised the level. *This* is why we end wars. And perhaps it's best I take my leave.
David Shepherd: So they... give you things.
Jack Benjamin: Whatever they have. The waters part, and dignity crumbles; I have a room in my apartment just for that.
