A Christmas story about an amazing friendship

Images from the movie Eight Below

Music by Enya

Good girl. Good job, Maya. Put the line over him. Good girl.

Doc, keep your left arm on the ice, like it is, but I want you to reach up with your right arm. You gotta (must) get your elbow and your arm up through the loop.

You can do it. There you go. Good job, doc. Yeah, just like that.

Alright. Maya, come on. Good girl, Maya. Good girl.

I got you, doc. I got you.

Keep it tight. Line them up, Maya!

Right now! Come on! Take it home!

Line up! Hike! (Pull!) Come on, Maya! Come on Old Jack! Come on, kids! Hike!

All right, doc, you hang in there, OK? We are gonna (going to) get you home, alright?

Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.
