“Beth is not first on my list to fight.”

“I really overturned the applecart when it comes to this family. I’m sure John Dutton had some little blonde daughter of a landowner all picked out.

But she has defended me over and over, because she knows I love her brother, and I’m not threat to this place.”

“Every summer there’s fires and every winter there’s blizzards. One cleanses the forest and one protects it, then feeds its rivers in the spring, which feeds the valleys.

These mountains have been around for 80 million years, and they’ll be for millions more. Name a city that’ll stand that long.”

“When I say we give everything to this land, I do mean everything.”
– Monica to Summer
