1. The Gemara discusses the discussion which Esther had with the Sages of her generation.
2. Megilas Esther was written with Ru'ach ha'Kodesh.
3. The Gemara discusses the Mitzvos of Mishlo'ach Manos and Matanos l'Evyonim.
4. A person always has room for sweet desserts.
5. A person should drink on Purim until he does not know the difference between "cursed is Haman" and "blessed is Mordechai."


1. She had two such discussions. One was to make Purim a Yom Tov and to have the Megilah read on that day, and another was whether Megilas Esther would be considered as one of the books of Kesuvim.
2. The Gemara quotes many proofs to this end, with the common denominator being that the one who wrote the Megilah could not have known the information without Ru'ach ha'Kodesh.

3. Mishlo'ach Manos is the Mitzvah to send two items of food to one person on Purim. Matanos l'Evyonim is the Mitzvah to send a food item (or their monetary equivalent) to two different poor people.
4. Abaye explained that even after he was full, he was able to eat a lot of dessert.
5. The Gemara mentions that when Rabah and Rebbi Zeira became inebriated on Purim, Rabah "killed" Rebbi Zeira. Even though he immediately brought him back to life, Rebbi Zeira refused Rabah's invitation to join Rabah for the Purim meal again next year, as "a miracle might not happen every year."
