THE O'ROYALLY FACTOR

Join Persia's pompousest pundit, Bill O'Royally, as he sucks up to the King, sticks it to Mordechai, and welcomes Haman to the "No-Semite Zone."

O'ROYALLY

I want to welcome you folks back to The Factor. Joining me tonight in the Zone is the executive director for the Persian Jewish Congress. Please give a warm O’Royally welcome to Mordechai!

MORDECHAI

Thanks, Bill. And by the way, it’s actually the Persian Jewish Committee.

ESTHER

Well you see, Nice Jewish Dr. Phil, I’m supposed to meet King Achashverosh...

DR. PHIL

DR. PHIL LAUGHS LOUDLY TO HIMSELF. ESTHER STARES, PUZZLED.

THE AMAZING SHLEP

Three teams engage in "Amazing Race"-style competition to be the first to save the Jews of Persia from the king's decree.

ANNOUNCER

Meet the teams. Team #1.

In PAIRS come out ESTHER & MORDECHAI, AHASHVERUS & VASHTI, CHARLIE BROWN & LITTLE REDHAIRED GIRL.
