[Nefertiri puts the clock down, unimpressed.]
NEFERTIRI - In Egypt we always had sun. [She picks up an unlit lamp.] And what is this?
NEFERTIRI - Why? Surely you can afford slaves?
MacLEOD - They're . . . out of fashion these days.
[The phone rings. Nefertiri looks around for the source of the ringing. MacLeod gestures towards the phone.]
MacLEOD - Probably Maurice.
[MacLeod pushes the speaker button on the phone.]
MAURICE - [on phone] Hello? Anybody home? This is Maurice . . . Duncan? You there?
[Nefertiri moves behind a chair, wide-eyed, expecting someone to appear.]
MacLEOD - It's coming from the phone.
NEFERTIRI - [beat, staring] He's too fat to be in there.
MacLEOD - His voice travels into the machine. He's not really here. [beat] Yes, Maurice.
MAURICE - [on phone] Listen, I was just about to open a bottle of champagne.
[Nefertiri moves closer, looks at the machine in wonder. We hear a cork pop. Nefertiri jumps back, startled, and laughs.]
MacLEOD - No, Maurice.
[MacLeod and Nefertiri exchange a look.]
MAURICE - [on phone] You're sure?
MacLEOD - We're busy.
MAURICE - [on phone] I was afraid of that. You could always call me tomorrow.
MacLEOD - [firmly] Goodbye, Maurice.
[MacLeod toggles the phone off.]
MacLEOD - [with a smile] I think Maurice likes you.
[Nefertiri looks at MacLeod and smiles -- this world is starting to amuse her.]
NEFERTIRI - It's good to know men haven't changed.
MacLEOD - Are you tired?
[She looks directly at him, again the small knowing smile enters her expression.]
MacLEOD - [pointing] It's up there. [beat] I'll take the couch.
NEFERTIRI - The man who saved me from bandits doesn't have to sleep on the couch.
MacLEOD - Let's take this one step at a time. [beat] I think tomorrow you're going to need some clothes.
NEFERTIRI - That would be nice. [beat] And, if you don't mind -- [beat] A sword.
[MacLeod and Nefertiri share a look.]
NEFERTIRI - Then it's a silly custom . . .
[Nefertiri grabs the dress and heads for the curtains. MacLeod turns to the staring clerk.]
MacLEOD - New here.
INT. STORE – DAY
[Nefertiri, in a dress and high-heels, tries to walk. Though at first she's wobbly, she quickly masters the technique.]
[Heads turn as MacLeod and Nefertiri, a knockout in her new clothes, walk down the street. As they cross a small street toward MacLeod's car, they pass a traffic cop.]
MacLEOD - It's a very, very long story.
NEFERTIRI - [looking at the Obelisk] Maybe you could teach me . . .
MacLEOD - To love you, Nefertiri, I'd have to know you for more than two days.
Scene ends when MacLeod leaves.

NEFERTIRI - Oh, no . . . No, she's not! She can't be. Octavian said she would continue to rule.
[Constantine moves toward Nefertiri, but she brandishes her sword, keeping him at a distance.]
CONSTANTINE - She couldn't manipulate him like she could Mark Antony.
NEFERTIRI - Impossible. No man could refuse her.
CONSTANTINE - Octavian could.
CONSTANTINE - Nothing stays a secret forever. Especially Immortality.
MacLEOD - I didn't know you knew Darius.
CONSTANTINE - He was my greatest enemy. And later a good friend.
CONSTANTINE - It was all a misunderstanding.
MacLEOD - The worst arguments are often between the best of friends.
CONSTANTINE - [looks at Nefertiri] Not to mention the oldest.
ANGELA - [raises her glass and looks at Nefertiri] To old friends, then.
MacLEOD - [toward Angela] And new ones.
[Everybody drinks. Constantine places his hand on Angela's. She looks at him adoringly. Nefertiri takes it all in.]
ANGELA - [to Nefertiri] Marcus never told me how you two met.
CONSTANTINE - That's ancient history.
ANGELA - It can't be that long ago.
NEFERTIRI - You'd be surprised.
These lines were not in the original shooting script.
