Scene: Maddie is flipping through the Bible on the kitchen counter, watching Mom make lunch.  She asks at each picture, “who is this?”  Jonathan walks into the room and begins listening.

Maddie (pointing): Is this Jesus?
Mom (craning neck): No…that’s Ezra.
Maddie:  Ooooohhh.  EZRA.
Mom:  Do you know who wrote the Bible, Maddie?
Maddie: Jesus?
Mom:  Yes!
Jonathan:  NOOOO, God did.
Mom is quiet.
Jonathan:  Well, Jesus wrote the second part.
Maddie:  Yeah, Jonny, Jesus wrote the second part.
Jonathan:  But I know who REALLY wrote the Bible, Maddie.
Maddie:  Who?
Jonathan:  Monks!
Maddie:  JONNY!  I don’t care about monks!
Jonathan:  You don’t care about people who wrote the Bible?
Maddie:  I DON’T CARE ABOUT MONKS!
