Dr. Joel Fleischman: Apparently this is a quote from Chief Seattle dated 1852... "The president in Washington sends word that he wishes to buy our land. But how can you buy or sell the sky, the land? The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life. He is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web he does to himself..."
Maggie O'Connell: "... Your destiny is a mystery to us. What will happen when the buffalo are all slaughtered?" Or will some materialistic money-grubbing short-sighted sub-human sell it to other materialistic money-grubbing short-sighted sub-humans so they can ravage the land and cover it with concrete just so they can pay a few dollars less in taxes.
Maggie O'Connell: All you care about is you, and New York, and your precious career!
Dr. Joel Fleischman: Look, Mother Theresa. I did not get off the plane and say that I am Marcus Welby, kindly physician, and all around swell guy! Okay! I was fully prepared to do my time in Anchorage, but I am contractually bound to this tundra under false pretenses and against my will. So if I resort to some unscrupulous practices to right a greater wrong, look, where's Amnesty International when it comes to Joel Fleischman?
Chris Stevens: Ferlin Husky's "Why Do I Put Up With You?" Man, you just gotta love country music. I mean, it's just so raw with honesty and passion.
Dr. Joel Fleischman: I don't like people committing suicide. All the ethical considerations aside, it's just plain bad for business.
