DAY 8- Month of Movie Quotes: Mulan (1998)

Fa Zhou: Mulan.

[Mulan quickly moves in front of her father and kneels causing him to sit back down]

Mulan: Father, I brought you the sword of Shan-Yu [hands the sword to Fa Zhou] and the crest of the Emperor [hands the crest to Fa Zhou]. [with head bowed] They’re gifts to honor the Fa Family.

[Fa Zhou takes the gifts and throws them down to the ground beside him to the surprise of Mulan. He bends down and holds her arms outstretched]

Fa Zhou: The greatest gift and honor, is having you for a daughter. [Fa Zhou wipes away Mulan’s tear then hugs Mulan] I’ve missed you so.

Mulan: I’ve missed you too Baba.

This scene always reminds me of my father. When I was a child I was incredibly shy, but I loved to sing. The second solo I ever did was “Reflection” from this movie. But because I was so shy, especially the older I became, my dad would have me sing this song to him. Sometimes I still do.

I love the relationship between Mulan and her father. It reminds me of my life and how grateful I am to have such a loving father as well. This quote always chokes me up for this reason. Honestly, this is one of my favorite scenes in all film.
