Matt King (George Clooney) explaining why he doesn’t want to sell the land in Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants.”

“I sign this document and something that we were supposed to protect is gone forever. We’re haole as shit. And we go to private schools and clubs and we can barely speak pidgin let alone Hawaiian. But we got Hawaiian blood, and we’re tied to this land. And our children are tied to this land. Now, it’s a miracle that for some bullshit reason 150 years ago we own this much of paradise, but we do.”
