David and Goliath Assembly Sample Text

Goliath:                                Well, let’s see if he can work the same magic (pauses) on the battlefield!

David:                                   Against you? I’m more than up for it!

King Saul:                             But that’s insane!

Servant:                               Yes, begging your pardon, but how can you possibly hope to win (pauses, pointing at Goliath) against that?

David:                                   (Shrugging his shoulders, casually) What’s to prove? He’s just (pauses)

Servant:                               (Interrupting) Big?

Philistine Soldier 1:          (Clapping) Bravo!

Philistine Soldier 2:          (Clapping) So you noticed?

David:                                   Huh! Size isn’t everything!

(Goliath strides over to David, towering above him)

Goliath:                                Oh really?

(David stands his ground, unflinching)

David:                                   Yes, really! You don’t frighten me, you great bully! There’s more to winning a battle than sheer brawn, you know.

Narrator:                             No, I rather fear he doesn’t know. I’m not even sure he understands what you’re saying!

Goliath:                                (Furiously) Understand what you’re saying? What’s to understand, that’s what I want to know!

Narrator:                             Quite! My point exactly!

(David starts to walk away)

Goliath:                                Huh! I knew he wouldn’t stick around! A coward, like the rest of you!

King Saul:                             Oh, don’t be so ridiculous! Look at you! All ready in your battle gear! Does my lad David look ready to you?

Goliath:                                Well, now you come to mention it

King Saul:                             So. If you don’t mind, we’ll just take a short time to get David into my armour and

David:                                   (Interrupting) Oh don’t worry! That won’t be necessary! I’m pretty much good to go!

King Saul:                             But what about some protection? A body shield at least?

David:                                   No, no. That won’t be necessary, either. I know what I need and I’ll be back in a minute.

(Exit David)

Goliath:                                Bah! Just an excuse to do a runner! You wait! There’s no way that wee boy is coming back to take on me!
