Favorite Scene From Secondhand Lions

This is my favorite scene from one of my favorite movies. 

"I'm Hub McCann. I've fought in two World Wars and countless smaller ones on three continents. I led thousands of men into battle with everything from horses and swords to artillery and TANKS! I've seen the headwaters of the Nile, and tribes of natives no white man had ever seen before. I've won and lost a dozen fortunes, KILLED MANY MEN! And loved only one woman, with a passion a FLEA like you could never begin to understand. That's who I am. NOW, GO HOME, BOY!"

Hub McCann had a hard time fitting in with the folks at home after his travels abroad. I get that. 

Secondhand Lions is a 2003 American adventure/comedy film about a young boy, Walter, (Haley Joel Osment) who is sent to live with his two eccentric but mysterious great-uncles (Hub and Garth McCann (Robert DuvallMichael Caine) on a farm in Texas. The movie was filmed in Lockhart, Texas.
