"Oh, Stephen," said Cherry, "Hula, hula."


Mythical Monkey said...

"He just said, "Hula hula" and died. He said it that other time, too."

"Sentimental fella, aren't you."

"Eh, yes and no."

Mythical Monkey said...

"If you could've found out what Hula hula meant, I bet that would've explained everything."

"No, I don't think so; no. Mr. Kane was a man who got everything he wanted and then lost it. Maybe Hula hula was something he couldn't get, or something he lost. Anyway, it wouldn't have explained anything... I don't think any word can explain a man's life. No, I guess Hula hula is just a... piece in a jigsaw puzzle... a missing piece."

I mean, really, it would have been a better movie this way. Try it. "Hula hula."
