TIANA: Back off, or I'm going to break this thing into a million pieces!
FACILIER: Now, isn't this a whole lot better than hopping around the bayou for the rest of your life?
TIANA: Shadow Man.
FACILIER: Got to hand it to you, Tiana. When you dream, you dream big. Just look at this place. Going to be the crown jewel of the Crescent City! And all you got to do to make this a reality is hand over that little old talisman of mine.
TIANA: No. This is not right.
FACILIER: Come on now, darling. Think of everything you've sacrificed. "Girl, all you ever do is work." "I told y'all she wouldn't come." Think of all those naysayers who doubted you. "You ain't never going to get enough for the down payment." "...little woman of your background, you're better off where you're at." And don't forget your poor daddy. Now that was one hard-working man. "See you in the morning, James." Double, sometime triple shifts. Never letting on how bone tired and beat down he really was."Daddy!" "Hey, babycakes!" Shame all that hard work didn't amount to much more than a busted-up old gumbo pot and a dream that never got off the back porch. But you? You can give your poor daddy everything he ever wanted. Come on, Tiana. You're almost there.
