Simeon: [referring to Joseph's dream] Yes, who did the wolf get this time?
Joseph: You can laugh, but this time it was about all of you.
Judah: Oh, please. You must tell us our future, great Joseph.
Simeon: [sarcastic] Should I be scared?

Potiphar: Very well. Give them...
Joseph: Nothing! 10 foreigners asking for grain, no ties to Egypt. Are you thieves, hoping to see where we store our grain? Spies? I don't know what you are, but I don't believe your story.

Joseph: The three vines signify three days. In three days, Pharaoh will bring you back to the palace, a free man.
Butler: If only it were true.
Joseph: It is true. And when you're free, tell Pharaoh about my gift. Please, promise me.

Pharaoh: I'm told you only need to hear a dream and you can explain it.
Joseph: Not me, Your Excellency. The explanation comes from God.

Joseph: Will you forgive me, for thinking I was some miracle from God?
Judah: But you are a miracle. God sent you to save our family and all of Egypt. And you did.

Issachar: [when Joseph wants to help with the sheep] Wait, you have to be very careful. You might cut your hands on the soft fur.
Joseph: [playfully] Get away!
[the rest of Joseph's brothers laugh]

Jacob: This is how you take charge? I trusted you to watch after Joseph. But you abandoned my son, my *son!*
Judah: Aren't we your sons too?
Joseph: The Ram! [sheep bleating]
Simeon: It's Joseph's dream!

Potiphar: You there! Have you cleaned this entire courtyard by yourself?
Joseph: Yes.
Potiphar's Wife: He's a hard worker. [whispering to Potiphar] Maybe we could put him to better use at the banquet hall.
Potiphar: My wife thinks you should work for her. What do you say?
Joseph: I cannot say. A slave is not his own master.
Potiphar: Well said.

Joseph: [to Asenath] They're my brothers.
Asenath: [shocked] What?
Joseph: They sold me. They sold me into slavery. They took me away from my home. I never got to say goodbye to my mother. I never got to see my father grow old. [almost in tears]
Asenath: Joseph, I didn't know. You're here now. You have a home. A wife who loves you. Everything you could want.
Joseph: No. Not everything.

Judah: Take any of us, Your Grace, but please, let the boy go.
Joseph: You would sacrifice yourselves for a half-brother who's spoiled by your father?
Judah: Yes.
Joseph: Why? Why should you care if I take him, beat him, make him a slave?
Judah: Because I will not make my father suffer... again.
Joseph: [shocked] Again? What do you mean, "again"?
Judah: Our brother was not killed by wolves. We were blinded by jealousy and sold him into slavery. For 20 years, we have lived with that guilt. We can't go back without the boy. My father could not bear it a second time, and neither could we. If anyone is to be punished, it should be us. [Judah kneels. Joseph looks away, his emotions overwhelming him, then removes his crown]
Joseph: I will not harm any of you, or our father. I am your brother, Joseph.
Judah: [sees his face] Joseph!
