The Raven scene on 127 hours is not available on YouTube. Dialogue from the movie clip is written below.
“8:15 and there is no Raven; 8:20 / 8:30 and my Raven didn’t come (a pause as he plays back images of family and friends in his life from the previous scene). I’ve been thinking.

Ever since it was a bit of a meteorite- a million/billion years ago – up there in space it’s been waiting – to come here, right here. I’ve been looking towards it my whole life, ever since the day I was born. Every breath I’ve taken, every action has been leading me to this crack of the earth’s surface.”
