Lester gets Vashti to go to the Party

LESTER


um, Queen Vashti?


VASHTI


(bored)

what is it already?


LESTER


uhhh...King Achashvairosh demands your presence at his party now.


VASHTI


(turning slowly toward Lester zooming closer and closer into her evil face)You tell that pathetic nouveau-riche excuse for a monarch that if he wants me to come to his party he should hoist himself from that ridiculously oversized throne and carry his ever-widening girth to my chambers Himself!


LESTER


[sighs] I knew you would say that.

VASHTI


What did you say?!


LESTER


I said, I knew you would say that - I mean... I know exactly what is gonna happen!


VASHTI


(looks at Zeresh)


well zeresh dahrling, it seems we have ourselves a regular fortune teller! Okay, fortune boy - tell me my fate - what’s going to happen to me?


LESTER


(sighs again)
well, after he finds out you're not coming, Achashverosh is gonna get preeety upset. Then one of his advisers is gonna suggest that he executes you to teach all the ladies a lesson that they gotta listen to their husbands. Since Achashvairosh is so drunk - he's actually going to go through with it, and kill you.


[Vashti stares glaringly at Lester, then slowly to Zeresh, (who slowly shrugs), then back to Lester]


VASHTI


His party eh? Well you know, he is using my entire trousseau - the leech - including the fine gilded tableware and even the vessels of the Jews’ holy temple...i wouldn’t mind soaking up some of that silver spoon treatment myself...
Zeresh, darling, are you with me?


ZERESH


whateveh!


[Both Vashti & Zeresh get up and walk off]


LESTER


Hmm. That wasn't supposed to happen....Oh well. I guess no harm done. Right? So Vashti won't get killed... [Camera begins to close in on Lester - tense music picks up] But if Vashti isn't killed...Esther will never need to be picked as a new queen. If Esther isn't in the palace...[camera's tight on Lester's face] Who's gonna stop Haman?! Who is going to save all the Jews from getting killed??! [Dramatic musical sound]. Oh no !I gotta do something. Think. Think! Ooooh, I can't BELIEVE I made such a mess of the Purim story! Ah! I got it! I'll go to Mordechai Hatzaddik and warm him! If anybody can help, it'll be him!!
