ENTER KING DAVID. He should be reminiscent of Fred MacMurray in “Double Indemnity.”
It’s not easy being the King of the Israelites,
but it has its compensations. For instance, that

ENTER BATHSHEBA. She should be reminiscent of Barbara Stanwyck in “Double Indemnity.”
You know there are laws against public indecency.
In that case, you better stop undressing me with your
eyes, before we both get in trouble.
I’m the King. No one gets me in trouble.
I hear your name is Bathsheba. An appropriate
name for a girl whose hobby is bathing.
I do like a good scrubbing.
I’ll bet you do, baby.
