The Princess & the Marine (2001 TV Movie)
Meriam's Mother: You kissed him. In the desert.
Meriam: No, no I didn't!
Meriam's Mother: At the Tree of Life, you kissed him. The secret police saw your lips on his.
Meriam: The secret police? You had me followed!
Meriam's Mother: I don't need to have you followed, Meriam. Everyone knows who you ARE! Everyone but me. I trusted you! I should never have let you go to that mall, to those American movies...kissing in public! What do you do when no-one else can see?
Meriam: Have you ever been to Bahrain?
Jim: No. I hear it's very beautful. If you like a lot of sand.
Meriam: They have a tree there, called the Tree of Life. And that is beautiful. Do you what to know why? Because it has no right to be there. It's in the desert, with no water, nothing green around it anywhere. You all say I have no right to be here. But I'm staying. I'm staying.
Jim: Meriam, you okay? Give it up. I know this isn't what you're used to.
Meriam: This is exactly how I lived.
Jim: You the boyfriend?
Jason Johnson: Yes, sir.
Jim: You better be worth it.
Jason Johnson: I hope so, sir.
