The Mosquito Coast (1986) Poster

Jadrien Steele: Jerry



  • Allie Fox : Look at this place, these are poor people. Look at what they own. Look at what they eat, they don't have meat, but they have asparagus that they cut.

    Jerry Fox : I don't think we should be here.

    Allie Fox : They welcome visitors, son. It's an old custom of theirs from the jungle. Be kind to strangers they say, you never know when you might be one yourself. That's the law of the jungle.

    Charlie : But this isn't the jungle dad.

    Allie Fox : No? No, because no jungle is as murderous as this is. They traded green trees for this room. It's pathetic. And it makes me mad, because they're going to end up being part of the problem.

    Allie Fox : It would take courage to go there.

    Charlie : Go where?

    Allie Fox : The jungle. Not ordinary gumption, but 4 o'clock in the morning courage.

    [glancing toward his boys] 

    Allie Fox : And who's got that?
