Final Scene of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

I was looking for movies to watch on cable when I happened to catch the ending of this movie. I couldn’t find the clip on YouTube (I found the full movie) so I looked for the next best thing–the script. When Soul says, “Put it out there!” then it’s a case of “if there’s a will, there’s a way.”

Sheik (sees salmon jumping from the water): Dr. Alfred, look! They’re alive!

Jones (looking at river with awe, talking to himself): I’m going to stay…I want to start again…I’ll do it on my own if I have to…I’ll start small, though, this time…A different approach…Just a few fish to begin with…Involve the local community more…Make it their project, not ours…That’s the way to protect it.

Harriet: Do you need an assistant, Dr. Jones?

Jones: Well, I suppose I will…I’m sure the sheikh has somebody that…An assistant?

Harriet: A partner.

Jones: A partner. Yes, Ms. Chetwode-Talbot. More than anything.
