Pesachim 54 is is chock full of agaddah on the first amud and returns to the perek's Ein Bein theme on the second. I would like to devote this post to two points raised in the agaddah portion and more specifically, two Rashis that are worth their weight in gold.
On amud alef, the gemara twice mentions items which were created by Hashem on Friday afternoon of creation. The first braisa lists various creations, including the "be'er" which Rashi explains is the well of Miriam. Rashi clarifies that this was also the rock which Moshe caused to bring forth water. This supports a vort which I read (although I can't remember in whose name) that Moshe hit the rock out of frustration because he could not figure out which of the rocks which was in front of him was the be'er of Miriam which he needed to talk to.
