Jonas Morehouse: You know God put me here on this earth for a reason. To extrapolate that oil.
Young Cynthia Morehouse: I'm not so sure you're using the word extrapolate properly.
Jonas Morehouse: You see these hands! This nation was built by hands like these. Honest hands. Mostly African and Chinese, laboring under the belief that hard word is a religion unto itself.
