EXT. SYRIAN HIGHLAND PLATEAU - DAY

So Jacob serves Laban for 7 years while waiting to marry Rachel.
But the 7 years seem to Jacob [to fly by like] a few days, for Jacob's love for his kissin' cousin Rachel burns in him like fire:

-- YEAR 1: Rachel and Jacob plant an orchard;

-- YEAR 2: a city of yurts springs up around longer-bearded Jacob and Rachel;

-- YEAR 3: Rachel applauds longer-bearded Jacob as his orchard begins to fruit;

-- YEAR 4: longer-bearded Jacob presents Rachel with a trunk filled with gold;

-- YEAR 5: longer-bearded Jacob and Rachel harvest the orchard;

-- YEAR 6: smiling Rachel looks on as a horde of happy workers grows around longer-bearded Jacob;

-- YEAR 7: A flock of animals grows into a horde around longer-bearded Jacob and the smiling Rachel.

Jacob leans in to kiss Rachel.

Laban's arm hooks Rachel away from Jacob.

Jacob grabs Rachel back.

JACOB
(to Laban)
Give me my wife!

LABAN
(grabs Rachel)
Soon, my son...

JACOB
(grabs Rachel)
My 7 years of slavery are finished!

LABAN
(Grabs Rachel)
Babylonian law requires a marriage license...

JACOB
(yells in Laban's face)
I want to sleep with Rachel TONIGHT!

LABAN
AllRIGHT!
