Dia, What are you doing? Dia! Look at me, look at me. What are you doing? You are Dia Vendy, of the proud Mende tribe. You are a good boy who loves soccer and school. Your mother loves you so much. She waits by the fire making plantains, and red palm oil stew with your sister N'Yanda and the new baby. The cows wait for you. And Babu, the wild dog who minds no one but you. I know they made you do bad things, but you are not a bad boy. I am your father who loves you. And you will come home with me and be my son again.

Solomon Vandy: [trying to rescue his son] Dia, come on.
Dia Vandy: Leave me alone!
Solomon Vandy: Dia it is me, your father. Let's go.
Dia Vandy: I don't know you! Fisherman!
[to the other soldiers]
Dia Vandy: Get him, get him!

[out of breath] He is my son. I am his father. I must go find him. Go ahead, shoot me if you want, but I will go find him.

Danny Archer: That makes us partners.
Solomon Vandy: I am not your partner!

Danny Archer: So you're a fisherman, ha? What do you catch mostly?
Solomon Vandy: Fish.

I will find you... If it takes my life
