SERPENT: I’m sssorry if I ssstartled you
Um, where’s Adam?
EVE: He’s tending to the olive trees
SERPENT: Oh, but all your pretty fruit is bruised now
Come. I will show you the sweetest delight in the garden
As a surprise for Adam
EVE: But this is the one tree in the garden we cannot touch
This is the forbidden fruit
SERPENT: Did God really say you must not eat from any tree in the garden?
EVE: We may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden
Except for the tree in the middle of the garden
God has forbidden us to either touch or eat the fruit of that tree
For if we do, we shall die
SERPENT: Ssss ssss sssss You believe that nonsense sss sss?
Of course you will not die ssssss
God knows that as soon as you eat it
Your eyes will be opened, and you and Adam
Will be like gods yourselves
You will know Good and Evil
EVE: [Gasps] The fruit here is truly beautiful
SERPENT: Oh yessssss, it is
