The clip Howard refuses to sell TWA from The Aviator (2004)

Okay, Howard, I'm sitting.
I've brought along our accountings. Now...
...Pan Am is trading at 13 and five-eighths.
TWA at four and a quarter.
Now, if you take...
Come on.
Come on, come on, come on. We both know I'm not gonna sell TWA.
Besides, you couldn't afford her.
Our domestic routes alone are worth more than twice Pan Am.
Well, considering our stock is trading at three times yours...
...I find that a dubious claim, Howard.
What I...
What I mean is, you have no domestic routes. All right?
I mean, you get TWA, you span the globe.
I'm not gonna sell, and you know I'm not gonna sell.
Here's the point.
Owen Brewster works for you.
Howard, I didn't elect Senator Brewster. We can thank the voters of Maine for that.
Now, if I appear at his hearings, Juan, it could get nasty.
Real nasty for all of us.
Well, I think, considerably more so for you.
While the good people of America were losing sons at Anzio...
...you produced a dirty movie and built airplanes that don't fly.
Well, that's just not fair, is it?
I mean, the XF-11 flew quite well for an hour and 45 minutes.
I wish you were up there with me, Juan. It was exhilarating.
Be that as it may, you still have to answer for the Spruce Goose.
It's called The Hercules!
And it will fly, goddamn it!
I hope so. The American people deserve something for their $13 million.
I won't sell TWA!
I won't!
