GOOD LUCK.

SIT DOWN, FIONA.

NO, NOT THERE.

SIT IN THE CHAIR.

I SAT IN THAT CHAIR, FIONA, THE

NIGHT BEFORE MY FATHER WENT TO WAR,

AND HE TOLD ME SOME THINGS

THAT I'M GOING TO TELL YOU.

YOU SEE...

YOU'RE NOT JUST A SMITH

OR A JONES OR A BROWN.

YOU'RE A GAYLORD, AND YOU

MUST ALWAYS BE A GAYLORD,

AND YOU MUST NEVER

SELL THE LAND.

YOU MEAN NEVER?

I MEAN NEVER.

THE LAND IS:

THE GAYLORD'S RELIGION.

WE BELIEVE IN IT ALMOS MORE THAN WE BELIEVE IN GOD.

FIONA, WHEN THE FIRS AMERICAN GAYLORD

WAS LYING ON:

HIS DEATHBED,

HE TOLD HIS FAMILY,

"NEVER SELL.

NEVER SELL THE LAND."

AND HE DIED.

THAT WAS NEARLY:

150 YEARS AGO.

WE STARTED BUYING LAND

AT THE BATTERY,

AND WE CONTINUED

TO BUY LAND.

WE PICKED UP A FEW PLOTS

ALONGSIDE OF TRINITY CHURCHYARD

AND ALONG THE COW PATH.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT COW

PATH IS CALLED NOW, FIONA?

NO, FATHER.

WALL STREET.

THEN THE GAYLORDS

WENT ON TO BUY STEEL

AND MINES AND RAILROADS

AND WHALING SHIPS.

THEY GREW RICHER

AND RICHER.

THEY WENT TO EUROPE AND TO

HARVARD... AND TO THE DOGS.

BUT THEY NEVER:

SOLD THE LAND.

AND NOW, FIONA,

YOU'RE THE GAYLORD WHO'S

GOING TO CARRY ON IN MY PLACE.

ALWAYS BE A GAYLORD,

AND NEVER SELL THE LAND.

NO, FATHER.

PROMISE?

I PROMISE.

THE CAR:

IS WAITING, SIR.

GOOD-BYE, BENSON.

COME BACK SOON, SIR.

IT'S TIME TO GO TO BED

NOW, MISS FIONA.

I'M MISS GAYLORD, NOW

THAT MY FATHER IS GONE,

AND I DON'T NEED ANYONE TO

TELL ME WHEN TO GO TO BED.

YES, MISS GAYLORD.

TELL THE HOUSEKEEPER I'LL

SEE HER IN THE MORNING.

YES, MISS GAYLORD.

THANK YOU, BENSON,

AND...

AND GOOD NIGHT.

THANK YOU,

MISS GAYLORD.

GOOD NIGHT.

GENTLEMEN, THIS WILL...

THIS WILL IS ABSOLUTELY

INCONSTESTABLE.

WHAT YOU:

TAKING OUT, JOE?

GAYLORD ESTATE-

JUDGE BARROWS' COURT.

THE WHOLE WORKS?

1919 TO 1941.
