  • Quotes

    • Olmec: The most iron-willed woman of Ancient Egypt was Hatshepsut, the first Egyptian Queen who crowned herself when her husband died. Because no woman had ever been allowed to reign before, she dressed like a man with a black wig and a false beard made of metal. She started the first zoo and built many great libraries and temples, all decorated with statues of herself. Legend has it that she and Thutmose were sitting around the Pyramids one night, when Hatshepsut started nagging her son.
      Hatshepsut: Thutmose, finish your peacock soup. How are you going to grow up to be a big, strong Pharaoh?
      Thutmose: I'd already be Pharaoh, but you won't let me!
      Hatshepsut: I don't think you're old enough.
      Thutmose: Mom, I'm 33. Most of the kids from school are reigning already. Bulem, the Hashemite has been King since he was three. And Alzarbar, the Hittite, he's been ruling since, gosh, the fourth grade.
      Hatshepsut: And look at the mess those countries are in.
      Olmec: Thutmose didn't become Pharaoh for years. But when he did, he became a powerful ruler, but never forgave his mother. He ordered every statue of her be destroyed, and they say the only thing left was her false metal beard. Your task is to find The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen and bring it back here.
      Kirk: Thank you, Olmec. So tell us, where is this, uh... Metal Beard?
      Olmec: The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen can be found in The Shrine of the Silver Monkey.
