Rex just isn't accustomed to so much resistance.
We try to keep our interactions really positive and we don't use the No word.
(SPEAKING CREOLE) should show respect.
Look, I know we do things differently but we love our son.
We don't want him to fear us or feel like he can't be his true self.

I listened to you my entire life and I was afraid.
And now you're scaring my son.
It's not about you or your beliefs.

If you're gonna be here, respect my rules.

It has water everywhere and very nice people, like Grandmere! But then, the earthquake came.
(REX GROWLING) Buildings fall and a lot of people died.
But the water's still there.
There was magic there.
It's called voodoo.
Dad thinks it's stories but I think it's real.
Some people say it protects the president in Haiti.
People call him Papa Doc Duvalier.
Some people say Papa Doc was evil like the anti-Christ.
So they tried to get rid of him.
But he stayed president for a long, long time.
He controlled the whole country with his powerful army, the Tonton Macoute.
He murdered all their voodoo priests.
He killed a lot of people, remember that, Grandmere? (RUSTLING) Remember your mother and Tonton Macoute, Grandmere? Mommy and Daddy only answer to me, like I'm Papa Doc and they're my Tonton Macoute.
Papa Doc was no priest, and you are not Papa Doc! But you have some kind of evil inside of you all your own! (BREATHING HEAVILY) Mommy, Daddy, leave! Grandmere, it's only you and me now.
