(MATT DAMON is looking out in to the lion cage…of his heart. Also, a literal lion cage. His DAUGHTER is beside him.)
MATT DAMON: This zoo is such an amazing responsibility. I feel like through my comical misadventures with wild animals, I’ve really dealt with your mother’s death. I’m ready to start having sex with that lady zookeeper now.
DAUGHTER: Daddy, I’m still sad that Mommy’s dead.
MATT DAMON: Well, stop it. We bought a zoo, honey. There’s nothing else I can do. Now, look at that lion ripping part of a gazelle carcass to shreds. That’s the beauty of nature.
DAUGHTER:I’m scared, Daddy.
MATT DAMON: I know honey. It’s scary having to run a zoo. But we’ll make it…together.
(Close up on MATT DAMON’s face as the sun sets behind him. He is proud of his zookeeping/fathering ability. Off-screen, his DAUGHTER is softly weeping. Soundtrack to the Lion King swells.)
