National Treasure Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the National Treasure script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the movie starring Nicolas Cage, Diane Kruger, John Voight, Harvey Keitel, yadda yadda.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of National Treasure. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

National Treasure Script






You're not supposed to be up here,

looking at that.



I just wanted to know.



Well, you're old enough, I suppose.



You should know the story.



OK, here we go.



It was  1832  .



On a night much like this.



Charles Carroll was the last surviving

signer of the Declaration of Independence.



He was also a member

of a secret society known as the Masons.



And he knew he was dying.



He woke up his stable boy

in the middle of the night



and ordered him to take him to

the White House to see Andrew Jackson,



because it was urgent

that he speak to the president.



Did he talk to him?



No. He never got the chance.



The president wasn't there that night.



But Charles Carroll had a secret.



So he took into his confidence

the one person he could,



my grandfather's grandfather,



Thomas Gates.



What was the secret?



A treasure.



A treasure beyond all imagining.



A treasure that had been

fought over for centuries



by tyrants, pharaohs,

emperors, warlords.



And every time it changed hands

it grew larger.



And then suddenly...



it vanished.



It didn't reappear

for more than a thousand years,



when knights from the First Crusade



discovered secret vaults

beneath the Temple of Solomon.



You see, the knights who found the vaults



believed that the treasure

was too great for any one man -



not even a king.



They brought the treasure back to Europe

and took the name "the Knights Templar".



Over the next century

they smuggled it out of Europe



and they formed a new brotherhood

called the Freemasons,



in honour of

the builders of the great temple.



War followed.



By the time of the American Revolution

the treasure had been hidden again.



By then the Masons included



George Washington,

Benjamin Franklin, Paul Revere.



They knew they had to make sure



the treasure would never fall

into the hands of the British.



So they devised a series of clues

and maps to its location.



Over time the clues were lost or forgotten,



until only one remained -



and that was the secret that Charles Carroll

entrusted to young Thomas Gates.






"The secret lies with Charlotte."



Who's Charlotte?



Oh, not even Mr Carroll knew that.



Now look here, Ben.



The Freemasons

among our Founding Fathers left us clues.



Like these.



The unfinished pyramid.

The all-seeing eye.



Symbols of the Knights Templar,

guardians of the treasure.



- They're speaking to us through these.

- You mean laughing at us.



You know what that dollar represents?



The entire Gates family fortune.



Six generations of fools...

chasing after fool's gold.



It's not about the money, Patrick.

It's never been about the money.



Come on, son. Time to go.



You can... say your goodbyes.






Are we knights?



Do you want to be?



All right. Um... kneel.



Benjamin Franklin Gates,



you take upon yourself the duty

of the Templars, the Freemasons



and the family Gates.



Do you so swear?



I so swear.



I was thinking about

Henson and Peary,



crossing this kind of terrain with nothing

more than dog sleds and on foot.



- Can you imagine?

- It's extraordinary.



We getting closer?



Assuming Ben's theory's correct

and my tracking model's accurate,



we should be getting very close.



But don't go by me -

I broke a shoelace this morning.



- It's... it's a bad omen.

- Shall we turn around and go home?



Or we could pull over

and just throw him out here.






Riley, you're not missing that little

windowless cubicle we found you in?



No, no. Absolutely not.



Why are we stopping?

I thought we were looking for a ship.



- I don't see any ship.

- She's out there.



Look... this is a waste of time.



How could a ship wind up way out here?



Well, I'm no expert, but...



it could be that the hydrothermic properties

of this region



produce hurricane-force ice storms



that cause the ocean to freeze

and then melt and then refreeze,



resulting in a semisolid

migrating land mass



that would land a ship right around here.



Hello, beautiful.



Have Viktor

check the fuel in the generators.



Two years ago, if you hadn't shown up,

hadn't believed the treasure was real,



I don't know

if I ever would have found Charlotte.



You would have found it, I have no doubt.



That's why I didn't think it was

as crazy an investment as everyone said.



I'm just relieved that I'm not as crazy

as everyone says. Or said my dad was.



Or my granddad. Or my great-granddad.






Let's go!



- Let's go find some treasure.

- Yeah, bring us back something.



Oh, God!



You handled that well.



This is it.



It's the cargo hold.



Do you think it's in the barrels?









Why would the captain

be guarding this barrel?



I found something!



What is it?



Do you guys know what this is?



Is it a billion-dollar pipe?



It's a meerschaum pipe.

Ah, that is beautiful.



Look at the intricacy of the scrollwork

on the stem.



- Is it a million-dollar pipe?

- No, it's a clue.



Let me see that.



No, don't break it!



We are one step closer to the treasure,




Ben, I thought you said that

the treasure would be on the Charlotte.



No, "The secret lies with Charlotte."



I said it could be here.



It's Templar symbols.



"The legend writ."



"The stain effected."



"The key in Silence undetected."



"Fifty-five in iron pen."



"Mr Matlack can't offend."



It's a riddle.



I need to think.



"The legend writ."



"The stain effected."



What legend?



There's the legend of the Templar treasure,

and the stain effects the legend.






"The key in Silence undetected."






The legend and the key...

Now there's something.



A map.



Maps have legends, maps have keys.



It's a map, an invisible map.

So now...



Wait a minute. What do you mean,

"invisible" - "an invisible map"?



"The stain effected"

could refer to a dye or a reagent



used to bring about a certain result.



Combined with

"The key in Silence undetected",



the implication is that the effect is to make

what was undetectable detectable.




"The key in Silence" could be...









See, I can do it too.




That's where the map is.

Like he said, "Fifty-five in iron pen."



"Iron pen" is a prison.



Or it could be, since the primary writing

medium of the time was iron gall ink,



the "pen" is... just a pen.



But then why not say a pen?

Why... why say "iron pen"?



Cos it's a prison.



Wait a minute. "Iron pen" - the "iron"

does not describe the ink in the pen,



it describes what was penned.



It was "iron" -

it was firm, it was mineral...



No, no, no, that's stupid.



It was... It was firm,

it was adamant, it was resolved.



It was resolved.



"Mr Matlack can't offend."



Timothy Matlack was the official scribe

of the Continental Congress.



Calligrapher, not writer. And to make sure

he could not offend the map,



it was put on the back of a resolution

that he transcribed,



a resolution that    men signed.



The Declaration of Independence.



Come on, there's no invisible map on the

back of the Declaration of Independence.



That's clever, really.

A document of that importance



would ensure the map's survival.



And you said there were several Masons

signed it, yeah?



Yeah. Nine, for sure.



We'll have to arrange a way to examine it.



This is one of the most important

documents in history.



They're not just gonna let us waltz in there

and run chemical tests on it.



- Then what do you propose we do?

- I don't know!



We could borrow it.



Steal it?



- I don't think so.

- Ben...



the treasure of the Knights Templar

is the treasure of all treasures.



Oh, I didn't know that.




Look, Ben... I understand your bitterness.

I really do.



You've spent your entire life

searching for this treasure,



only to have

the respected historical community



treat you and your family

with mockery and contempt.



You should be able to rub this treasure

in their arrogant faces,



and I want you to have

the chance to do that.






We all have our areas of expertise.



You don't think mine are limited

to writing cheques, do you?



In another life...



I arranged a number of operations of...

questionable legality.



I'd take his word for it, if I were you.



So don't worry.

I'll make all the arrangements.






I'd really need your help here.



lan... I'm not gonna let you steal

the Declaration of Independence.






From this point on

all you're going to be is a hindrance.






What are you gonna do?

Are you gonna shoot me, Shaw?



Well, you can't shoot me.

There's more to the riddle.



Information you don't have. I do.



I'm the only one who can figure it out,

and you know that.



He's bluffing.



We played poker together, lan.

You know I can't bluff.



Tell me what I need to know, Ben,



or I'll shoot your friend.






Quiet, Riley!

Your job's finished here.



Look where you're standing.

All that gunpowder.



You shoot me,

I drop this, we all go up.






What happens when the flare burns down?



Tell me what I need to know, Ben.



You need to know...



if Shaw can catch.



Nice try, though.



Get out, Shaw!






Riley, get over here!



- What is this?

- Smuggler's hold. Get in!



Move! Get out of here!



- What?

- Move! Get out!



Follow me.



Let's go, let's go!

She's gonna blow!



Get down.



OK, let's go.

Before someone sees the smoke.



There's an Inuit village

about nine miles east of here.



- It's popular with bush pilots.

- All right.



- Then what are we gonna do?

- Start making our way back home.



No, I meant about lan. He's gonna steal

the Declaration of Independence, Ben.



We stop him.



Is it really so hard to believe



that someone's gonna try to steal

the Declaration of Independence?



The FBI gets       tips a week.



They're not gonna worry about

something they're sure is safe.



But anyone that can do anything

is gonna think we're crazy.



Anyone crazy enough to believe us

isn't gonna want to help.



We don't need someone crazy. But one

step short of crazy, what do you get?









Excuse me.



- Dr Chase can see you now, Mr Brown.

- Thank you.



Mr Brown?



The family name doesn't get a lot

of respect in the academic community.



Huh. Being kept down by the man.



A very cute man.



Thank you.



- Good afternoon, gentlemen.

- Hi.



- Abigail Chase.

- Paul Brown.



- Nice to meet you.

- Bill.



Nice to meet you, Bill.



- How may I help you?

- Your accent. Pennsylvania Dutch?



Saxony German.



- You're not American?

- Oh, I am an American.



I just wasn't born here.

Please don't touch that!



Sorry. A neat collection.

George Washington's campaign buttons.



You're missing the      inaugural, though.



- I found one once.

- That's very fortunate for you.



Now, you told my assistant

that this was an urgent matter.



Yes, ma'am.



Well, I'm gonna get straight to the point.



Someone's gonna steal

the Declaration of Independence.



It's true.



I think I'd better put you gentlemen

in touch with the FBI.



- We've been to the FBI.

- And?



They assured us that the Declaration

cannot possibly be stolen.



- They're right.

- My friend and I are less certain.



However, if we were given the privilege

of examining the document...



we would be able to tell you for certain

if it were actually in any danger.



What do you think you're gonna find?



We believe that there's an...

encryption on the back.



- An encryption, like a code?

- Yes, ma'am.



Of what?



A... cartograph.



- A map.

- Yes, ma'am.



A map of what?



The location of...



...of hidden items

of historic and intrinsic value.



- A treasure map?

- That's where we lost the FBI.



You're treasure-hunters, aren't you?



We're more like treasure-protectors.



Mr Brown, I have personally seen the back

of the Declaration of Independence,



and I promise you, the only thing there

is a notation that reads,



"Original Declaration of Independence,




"Four of July,     ." Yes, ma'am.



But no map.



It's invisible.



Oh! Right.



And that's where we lost

the Department of Homeland Security.



What led you to assume

there's this invisible map?



We found an engraving

on the stem of a    -year-old pipe.



Owned by Freemasons.



- May I see the pipe?

- We don't have it.



- Did Big Foot take it?

- It was nice meeting you.



Nice to meet you, too.



And, you know,

that really is a nice collection.



Must have taken you a long time

to hunt down all that history.



If it's any consolation,

you had me convinced.



It's not.



I was thinking, what if we go public,

plaster the story all over the Internet?



It's not like

we have our reputations to worry about.



Although I don't think

that's exactly gonna scare lan away.



    years of searching,

and I'm three feet away.



Of all the words

written here about freedom,



there's a line here

that's at the heart of all the others.



"But when a long train of abuses

and usurpations,



pursuing invariably the same object,



evinces a design to reduce them

under absolute despotism,



it is their right, it is their duty

to throw off such government



and provide new guards

for their future security."



People don't talk that way any more.



Beautiful, huh?



- No idea what you said.

- It means, if there's something wrong,



those who have the ability to take action

have the responsibility to take action.



I'm gonna steal it.






I'm gonna steal

the Declaration of Independence.






This is... huge.



It's prison huge.



You are gonna go to prison,

you know that?



Yeah, probably.



So that would bother most people.



lan's gonna try and steal it. And if he

succeeds, he'll destroy the Declaration.



The fact is, the only way to protect

the Declaration is to steal it.



It's upside down.



I don't think there's a choice.



Ben, for God's sakes,



it's like stealing a national monument. OK?



It's like stealing him.



It can't be done. Not shouldn't be done.

It can't be done.



Let me prove it to you.



OK, Ben, pay attention.



I've brought you to the Library of Congress.



Why? Because it's the biggest library

in the world.



Over    million books.



And they're all saying

the same exact thing:



listen to Riley.



What we have here, my friend,

is an entire layout of the archives.



Short of builders' blueprints.



You've got construction orders,

phone lines,



water and sewage -

it's all here.



Now, when the Declaration

is on display, OK,



it is surrounded by guards

and video monitors



and a little family from lowa and little kids

on their eighth-grade field trip.



And beneath an inch of bulletproof glass

is an army of sensors and heat monitors



that will go off if someone gets too close

with a high fever.



Now, when it's not on display,



it is lowered into a four-foot-thick

concrete, steel-plated vault...



that happens to be equipped

with an electronic combination lock



and biometric access-denial systems.



You know, Thomas Edison tried and failed

nearly      times



to develop the carbonised cotton-thread

filament for the incandescent light bulb.






When asked about it,

he said, "I didn't fail,



I found out      ways

how not to make a light bulb."



But he only needed to find one way

to make it work.



The Preservation Room.

Enjoy. Go ahead.



Do you know

what the Preservation Room is for?



Delicious jams and jellies?



No. That's where they clean,

repair and maintain



all the documents

and the storage housings



when they're not on display or in the vault.



Now, when the case needs work they take

it out of the vault, directly across the hall



and into the Preservation Room.



The best time for us, or lan, to steal it

would be during the gala this weekend



when the guards are distracted

by the VIPs upstairs.



But we'll make our way to the Preservation

Room, where there's much less security.



Well, if lan...






The gala, huh?



This might be possible.



It might.



And we are in.



There you are. Hello.



The hallway.



That's what I want.



Game on.



I'll buy that.






This just came for you.



I hope it's not from Stan.



"For the woman who has everything else...

Thanks for listening. Paul Brown."



Abigail Chase.



Hey, Mike.



- Let's do this by the book.

- Hallway is secure.



- Keep the document level.

- No problem.



What have you got?



The heat sensor went off

in the Declaration frame.



Run full diagnostics,

then I want them all changed out.



Our evil plan is working.



Ben, are you sure that we should...?






- Can you hear me?

- Unfortunately, yeah.



We're all set in here.



You want to go around to the front

and present your invitation.



You're gonna have to show ID.

Go ahead, man.






I need your invitation

and your ID, please.



How do you look?



- Not bad.

- Mazel tov.



This is it.



For you.



- Oh, Mr Brown.

- Dr Chase.



- What are you doing here?

- Is that that hot girl?



- How does she look?

- I made a last-minute donation. A big one.



Well, on that subject,

thank you for your wonderful gift.



- Oh, you did get it? Good.

- Yes, thank you.



You know, I really couldn't accept

something like that normally, but...



I really want it.



- Well, you needed it.

- Come on, Romeo, get outta there.



I have been wondering, though,

what the engraving indicated



on the pipe that Big Foot took.






- Here you go.

- Oh, Dr Herbert, this is Mr Brown.



- Hi.

- Hi there.



- Who's the stiff?

- Here, why don't you let me take that?



- So you can take that off his hands.

- Thank you.



A toast, yeah?



To high treason.



That's what these men were committing

when they signed the Declaration.



Had we lost the war, they would have been

hanged, beheaded, drawn and quartered,



and - Oh! Oh, my personal favourite -

and had their entrails cut out and burned!



So, here's to the men

who did what was considered wrong



in order to do what they knew was right.



What they knew was right.



Well, good night.



- Good night.

- Good night.






OK, go! Go!



This better work.






- On.

- Door one.    seconds.



How does it look?



It's working.

It's working...






Second door.    seconds.



Well done, boys. Let's go.



- We're in the elevator.

- OK.



I'm gonna turn off

the surveillance cameras. Ready?



In five, four,



three... Now.



Ben Gates,



you are now the Invisible Man.



- I'm here.

- Give me the letters for her password.



What do you got for me?



Hit me with it.









Anagrams being listed.






Top results: "A glove fry."



"A very golf."



"Fargo levy."



"Gravy floe. Valey frog."



Also "Ago fly rev."



"Grove fly a."



"Are fly gov."



"Era fly gov."



- "Elf gov ray."

- It's "Valley Forge".



"Valley For..."

I don't have that on my computer.



It's "Valley Forge" -

she pressed the E and L twice.



Valley Forge was a turning point

in the American Revolution.



Can I marry your brain?



We're in.






Ben, you're doing great.



Ben, pick it up.



You got about one...



We own video.



- I lost my feed.

- What?



I lost my feed, Ben.



I don't know where anyone is.

I have nothing.



Ben, I have no...

Ben, I have nothing.



Get out of there.

Get out of there now.



I'm taking the whole thing.

I'll get it out in the elevator.



What are you talking about?

Is it heavy?



Shaw. Door three, one minute.






What was that?



Who's shooting?



- Damn.

- He's got the bloody map!



Are you still there? Ben?



I'm in the elevator.



- lan's here. There was, uh, shooting.

- I hate that guy.



Hey, Rebecca.

Do you have a Paul Brown on that list?



Paul Brown?



No. Not here.



Have a good night.



Are you trying to steal that?



It's $  .



- For this?

- Yeah.



- That's a lot.

- Hey, I don't make the prices.






I have $  ...






We take Visa.



This is Mike. Sublevel three.

I have an alert.



Where are you, Ben?



- Where are you?

- Stop talking.



Start the van.



Ben, the...

the mean Declaration lady's behind you.






Oh, it's you. Hello.



Mr Brown, what's going on?

What's that?



- It's a souvenir.

- Really?



Stop chatting and get in the van.



Code red. Code red.

We have a break-in.



Lock it down. Nobody leaves the building.

Get the FBI on the phone.



- Did you enjoy the party?

- Yeah.



- Oh, my God.

- Oh, my God! You did not...?



- No...

- Security! Over here!



- Give me that!

- It's yours. Take it.






- Over here! Security!

- Got you.






Viktor! Move!



- We can't just let her go!

- We can. Go!



- Security, over here!

- Wait. No, hold it.



Hold it!



- Wha...?

- Oh, bad.



- What do you want?

- Give me the document.



Bad, bad, bad!



- Let me go!

- Just bring her!



No! No!



- That's...

- Go! Go!



And just who might you be?



- Once we catch them what do we do?

- I'm working on it.



Right turn, right turn.



Why don't you just pass me that

document? Then we can all go home.



Oh, no.



Skidding, skidding, skidding.



- Oh, no!

- Holy Lord!



- Help!

- No! If she falls, the document falls.



Get me next to her.



- Thank you.

- No!



Got it. Go on.






Come on. Jump.



- We lost them.

- That's all right. This... is what we need.



Well done, Gates. Well done.



- Are you all right?

- No! Those lunatics...



- You're not hurt, are you?

- You are all lunatics!



- Are you hungry?

- What?



Are you all right?



Still a little on edge from being shot at,

but I'll be OK. Thanks for asking.



Yeah, well, I'm not all right. Those men

have the Declaration of Independence!



- She lost it?

- They don't have it.



See? OK?

Now could you please stop shouting?



- Give me that!

- You're still shouting. It's starting to annoy.



You'd do well, Dr Chase,

to be a bit more civilised in this instance.



If this is the real one, what did they get?



A souvenir.



I thought it'd be a good idea to have

a duplicate. It turned out I was right.



I actually had to pay for the souvenir and

the real one, so you owe me $   plus tax.



- Genius.

- Who were those men?



Just the guys we warned you

were gonna steal the Declaration.



And you didn't believe us.



We did the only thing we could do

to keep it safe.



Verdammt! Give me that!



You know something?

You're shouting again.



I'm pretty sure she was swearing, too.



Well, we probably deserve that.



Ladies and gentlemen...



Ladies and gentlemen, my name is

Peter Sadusky. I'm the agent in charge.



I wanna reassure you,

you are not in danger in any way.



If we all cooperate, we'll get through this

with as little frustration as possible.



Thank you.



Get positive IDs. Search everyone,

including the security staff.



If they refuse,

detain them and get warrants.



Yes, Agent Hendricks?

You have something?






- This isn't a day for "Um..."

- We got a tip several days ago



that someone was going to steal

the Declaration of Independence.



Do we have a name on the tipster?



There was no file opened.

We didn't find the information credible.



How about now?



There is not a treasure map on the back

of the Declaration of Independence.



And there's no chance

anyone can steal this either.



I levelled with you     per cent.

Everything I told you was the truth.



I want that document, Mr Brown.



OK, my name's not Brown.

It's Gates.



I levelled with you    per cent.



Wait a minute, did you just say "Gates"?






You're that family with the conspiracy

theory about the Founding Fathers?



- It's not a conspiracy theory.

- Per se.



You know what? I take it back.

You're not liars. You're insane.



There's a copy of the Declaration

on display now?



- Yes, we decided to...

- Leave it there.



The guests know something happened,

but they don't know what.



They got him with a Taser at the service

entrance. He doesn't remember a thing.



Also, we found bullet casings.



Did we get a description

from the other guards?



- Which guards?

- The guards that were fired upon.



There weren't any other guards

on patrol down here.






who was shooting,

who were they shooting at,



and why weren't they getting along?



You can't seriously intend

to run chemical tests



on the Declaration of Independence

in the back of a moving van.



We have a clean-room environment

all set up.



EDS suits, a particulate air filtration

system, the whole shebang.



- Really?

- We can't go back there.



What? Why not?



This is the guy. Dr Herbert said

Dr Chase introduced him as Mr Brown.



Not on the guestlist.



Now, the gift-store clerk - she said

he seemed... Well, she said "flustered".



He tried to walk out with a copy

of the Declaration of Independence



without paying.



He paid with a Visa.



"Charge to Benjamin Gates."



A credit-card slip?



Dude, we're on the grid.



They'll have your records from forever.

They'll have my records from forever.



I know. I know. It's only a matter of minutes

before the FBI shows up at my front door.



What do we do?



- We need those letters.

- What letters?



You know, get off the road,

take a right.



What letters?



You have the original Silence Dogood

letters? Did you steal those, too?



We have scans of the originals.



- Quiet, please.

- How'd you get scans?



Oh, I know the person

who has the originals. Now shush.



- Why do you need them?

- She really can't shut her mouth, can she?



I'll tell you what, look.

I will let you hold onto this



if you'll promise to shut up, please.



Thank you.



- Ben, you know what you have to do.

- I know what to do.



I'm just trying to think

of anything else we could do.



Well, not to be a... nudge,



but you do realise how many people

we have after us.



We probably have

our own satellite by now.



It took you all of two seconds to decide

to steal the Declaration of Independence.



Yeah, but I didn't think I was gonna

personally have to tell my dad about it.



Hey, not cool! Not cool!



Let me go!



OK. You're let go. Go, shoo.



I'm not going. Not without the Declaration.



You're not going with the Declaration.



Yes, I am. I'm not letting it

out of my sight, so I'm going.



Wait. You're not going with us

with the Declaration.



- Yes, I am.

- No, you're not.



Look, if you wanted to leave me behind,



you shouldn't have told me

where you were going.






What the...



Now we're getting somewhere.



They're digital scans of letters

to the editor of The New England Courant.



Written     .



They're all from the same person.

"Your humble servant, Silence Dogood."






why is this word capitalised?



Because it's important?



Because it's a name.



OK, I got it.

When Ben Franklin was only    years old



he secretly wrote    letters

to his brother's newspaper



pretending to be a middle-aged widow

named Silence Dogood.



These letters were written

by Benjamin Franklin.



Looks OK.



- Park a couple of blocks away.

- Well, how long do you think we got?



I'm gonna give them a couple of hours

at least. I hope.



What do we do about her?

I've got some duct tape in the back.



No, that won't be necessary.

She won't be any trouble.



- Promise you won't be any trouble.

- I promise.



See? She's curious.



Here's what I got on Gates. A degree

in American History from Georgetown,



a degree in Mechanical Engineering

at MIT,



Navy ROTC and Naval Diving

and Salvage Training Centre.



What in the world did this guy

want to be when he grew up?



We keep our focus on Gates.



Run him to ground.



Compile a family-and-friends list.

Closest relative first.



I want to find out who this guy is.






Where's the party?



Well... I'm in a little trouble.



- Is she pregnant?

- Well, if she is,



are you gonna leave the woman carrying

your grandchild standing out in the cold?



I look pregnant?



This better not be about

that dumb treasure.



Well, have a seat.

Make yourselves comfortable.



There's some pizza.

It's still warm, I think.






I need the Silence Dogood letters.

Yeah, it's about the treasure.



And he dragged you two

into this nonsense?



- Literally.

- I volunteered.



Well, unvolunteer,

before you waste your life.



- Knock it off, Dad.

- Sure, sure, I know, I'm the family kook.



I have a job, a house, health insurance.



At least I had your mother, for however

brief a time. At least I had you.



What do you have? Him?



Look, if you just give us the letters,

we're gone.



You disappoint me, Ben.



Well, maybe that's the real Gates-family

legacy. Sons who disappoint their fathers.



Get out. Take your troubles with you.



I found the Charlotte.



The Charlotte?



- You mean she was a ship?

- Yeah, she was beautiful.



It was amazing, Dad.



And the treasure?



No, no. But we found another clue

that led us here.



Yeah, and that'll lead you

to another clue.



And that's all you'll ever find,

is another clue. Don't you get it, Ben?



I finally figured it out.



The legend says that the treasure

was buried to keep it from the British.



But what really happened

was the legend was invented,



to keep the British occupied

searching for buried treasure.



The treasure is a myth.



I refuse to believe that.



Well, you can believe what you want.

You're a grown person. What am I doing?



Do what you want, Ben.

Do what you want.



He's probably right. You don't even know

if there is another clue.



Well, I can think of a way where we could

find out. And we can find out right now.



Looks like animal skin.



- How old is it?

- At least     years.



- Really? You sure?

- Pretty darn.



Now if this thing's in invisible ink,

how do we look at it?



Throw it in the oven.



- No.

- Uh-uh.



Ferrous sulphate inks

can only be brought out with heat.



- Yes, but this...

- It's very old.



This is very old, and we can't

risk compromising the map.



You need a reagent.



Dad, it's really late.

Why don't you get some rest?



I'm fine.






- You can't do that.

- But it has to be done.



Then someone who is trained to handle

antique documents is gonna do it.









Now, if there is a secret message,



it'll probably be marked by a symbol

in the upper right-hand corner.



That's right.



I am so getting fired for this.



I told you. You need heat.






- We need more juice.

- We need more heat.



That's not a map.



- Is it?

- More clues. What a surprise.



Are those latitudes and longitudes?



That's why we need

the Silence Dogood letters.



- That's the key?

- Yeah. "The key in Silence undetected."



Dad, can we have the letters now?



Will somebody please explain to me

what these magic numbers are?



- It's an Ottendorf cipher.

- That's right.



Oh, OK.



- What's an Ottendorf cipher?

- They're just codes.



Each of these three numbers

corresponds to a word in a key.



Usually a random book

or a newspaper article.



In this case,

the Silence Dogood letters.



So it's like the page number

of the key text,



the line on the page,

and the letter in that line.



So, Dad, where are the letters?



You know, it's just by sheer happenstance

that his grandfather...



- Dad.

...even found them.



They were in an antique desk

from the press room...



- Dad.

...of The New England Courant.



- That's a newspaper.

- Dad, where are the letters?



I don't have them, son.



- What?

- I don't have them.



Where are they?



I donated them to the Franklin Institute

in Philadelphia.



Time to go.



I still can't believe it. All this time

no one knew what was on the back.



The back of what?






- Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

- I know.



Oh, my God. What have you done?

This is... this is the...



- I know!

- This is the Declaration of Independence.



Yes. And it's very delicate.



You stole it?



Dad, I can explain, but I don't have time.

It was necessary. And you saw the cipher.



And that will lead to another clue,

and that will lead to another clue!



There is no treasure.

I wasted    years of my life.



And now you've destroyed yours.



And you pulled me into all this.



Well, we can't have that.



Come in!



I'm in here.



FBI, right?



You gonna untie me?



And you have no idea where he's going?



- Well, wouldn't I have told you if I did?

- Would you?



He tied me to a chair.



The garage is empty, but there's a Cadillac

De Ville registered to Patrick Gates.



And he stole my car.



Don't worry, Mr Gates, we'll find your car.

And your son.



Your dad's got a sweet ride.



I think we should change clothes.



We look kind of conspicuous,

don't you think?



I'd love to go shopping, too,

but we have no money.



Here, I took this from his house.



He usually tucks a few hundred dollars

somewhere between those pages.



- Common Sense. How appropriate.

- When are we gonna get there?



I'm hungry. This car smells weird.



Excuse me.



Excuse me. Oops, sorry, sir. Excuse me.



That's OK.









You're sure this is right?









No, N.



- That is an N.

- It doesn't look like an N.



You know what? Here. Last one. OK?



- One more dollar.

- Thank you.



Go get the last four letters.



Go get 'em, chief. Come on.



OK. "The vision to see the treasured past



comes as the timely shadow crosses

in front of the house of pass and..."



"Pass and..." what?



"Pass and..."



What's going on?



- I'm not sure.

- What's up?



So you show up at your father's door

and say you're in trouble



and the first thing he assumes

is I'm pregnant.



Is there a question in there?



I think there's an interesting story

in there.



Well, my father thinks I've been

a little too cavalier in my personal life.



- I see.

- Let me ask you something.



Have you ever told someone -

not a relative - "I love you"?






More than one someone?






Oh. Well, then my father would say



you've been a little too cavalier

in your personal life, too.



So you get your sense of absolute certainty

from him, do you?



Well, I'm sure I don't know

what you mean.



Well, you're certain the treasure is real,

despite what anyone else thinks.



No, but I hope it's real.



I mean, I've dreamt it's real

since my grandfather told me about it.



But I want to hold it.

I feel like I'm so close, I can taste it.



But I just... I just want to know it's not just

something in my head or in my heart.



People don't really talk that way, you know.



I know. But they think that way.






- Did you get it? Riley?

- Oh, I got it.



"The vision to see

the treasured past comes



as the timely shadow crosses

in front of the house of Pass and Stow."



Now, "Pass and Stow", of course,

referring to...



- The Liberty Bell.

- Why do you have to do that?



Well, John Pass and John Stow

cast the bell.



OK. Well, then, what does

the rest of this mean?



Wait..."The vision to see the treasured

past" must refer to a way to read the map.



Well, I thought the cipher was the map.



No, the cipher was a way

to find the way to read the map.



And the way to read the map can be found



where the "timely shadow" crosses

in front of the Liberty Bell.



Crosses in front of the "house"

of the Liberty Bell. Independence Hall.



Right, so "timely shadow" -

it's a specific time.



- Right.

- What time?



What time? What time?



Wait a minute, wait.

You're gonna love this.



Excuse me, can I see one of those

hundred-dollar bills I paid you with?






Oh. Well, here,

I have this diver's watch.



It's called a Submariner. I dive with it.

It's actually quite valuable.



- You can use it as collateral.

- Whatever.



Thank you.



On the back of a hundred-dollar bill

is an etching of Independence Hall



- based on a painting done in...

- Hello.



Thank you. the     s, who...



The artist was actually a friend

of Benjamin Franklin's. It's wonderful.



- Fascinating.

- Hold this.






I'm not going anywhere.



Now, I think that if we look

at this clock tower...



...we may find the specific time.



- What do you see?

-  :  .



- What time is it now?

- Almost three.



- We missed it.

- No, we didn't.



We didn't miss it because...



You don't know this? I-I know something

about history that you don't know.



I'd be very excited to learn about it, Riley.



Well, hold on one second, let me just...

let me just take in this moment.



This is... this is cool.



Is this how you feel all the time? Because,

you know... Except for now, of course.



- Riley!

- All right.



What I know is that daylight savings

wasn't established until World War I.



If it's  pm now, OK, that means

in      it would be  pm.



- Let's go.

- Riley, you're a genius.






Do you actually know who the first person

to suggest daylight savings was?



- Benjamin Franklin.

- Benjamin Franklin.



Is this real?



Just tell me what you told my friend.



Just a bunch of letters.

I can't remember.



Can you remember which ones

you were gonna tell him next?



Yeah, here. S-T-O-W.



Top results: Liberty Bell

and Independence Hall.



Imagine its impact

back in the   th century.



It could have been seen for miles around,

which was exactly its purpose,



because it served as a beacon, as it were,

for people to collect and hear...



Good stuff.



It gained a place in history

on July       



when the Liberty Bell tolled

for the first public reading



of the Declaration of Independence.



Eventually, it was moved from its place



in Independence Hall steeple

and given its own...



- Idiot.

- Who?



- Me.

- What?



It's not here. It's there.



Come on.



- What bell is this?

- It's the Centennial Bell.



It replaced the Liberty Bell in     .



There it is.



All right. I'm gonna go down there,

and you meet me in the signing room.



- OK? All right.

- OK.



All right, let's go.



 :  . My idea.



Hey. What'd you score?



I found this.



Some kind of ocular device.



"The vision to see the treasured past."

Let me take this.



Aw, they're like early American

X-ray specs.



Benjamin Franklin invented

something like these.



I think he invented these.



So, what do we do with them?



We look through it.



Here, help me.



- Careful.

- You think?



- What?

- It's just that the last time this was here



it was being signed.



- Ben, there's another tour coming.

- Turn it over.



- Careful.

- Spectacles.



What do you see?



What is it? Is it a treasure map?



It says, "Heere at the wall",

spelled with two E's.



Take a look.






Why can't they just say, "Go to this place,

and here's the treasure, spend it wisely"?



Oh, no.



- Oh, no.

- Oh, no.



How'd they find us?



Well, lan has nearly unlimited resources.

And he's smart.



I don't think we can get out of here

without being spotted.



Well, we don't want them to have

the Declaration, or the glasses.



But we especially don't want them

to have them both together.



- So what do we do?

- We separate the lock from the key.



- We're splitting up.

- Good idea.






I'll take this.



And those. You keep that. Meet me at the

car and call me if you have any problems.



Like if we get caught and killed?



Yeah. That would be a big problem.

Take care of her.



- I will.

- I will.



We're on him.



There he is.



- Let's walk this way.

- Wait up.



- Shaw, look. There's the others.

- I got it.



Viktor, meet me at Fifth and Chestnut. Fifth

and Chestnut. They're heading your way.



- Look out! Look out!

- Riley!



- There they are! Move!

- Move!



- Time to run.

- Keep up, Viktor! Move. Come on.



In here.



- Come on.

- Follow me.



That way.



If you're not a steak,

you don't belong here.



I'm just trying to hide

from my ex-husband.



- Who, baldy?

- Yes.



Honey, stay as long as you like.



Oh, thank you. Thank you.



You want something?



- Do you want something?

- Shut up.



I see why you left him.



Go around. Go around.






Aw, come on!



- Where were you?

- Hiding.



Come on. Let's go, let's go.



lan. lan, I've got 'em.

They're heading toward City Hall.



- OK, I'm on my way.

- Out of the way!



They're headed for the breezeway

on the north side.



I'll be right there.



Hey, Gates!



Enough, man! Give me the document.



All right, Phil.



Watch out! Get out of my way!



Watch it!



Leave them! Let 'em go.



We've got it.



- FBI. Have you seen this guy?

- No.



Nope, I haven't seen him.



Ted. Philadelphia police

found Gates's car.



It's close.

We got surveillance there now.



Let's go. Tell the boss

we got the car.



- What?

- We lost it.



- What?

- We lost the Declaration. lan took it.



Yeah, OK. You all right?

You both all right?



Yeah, yeah, we're all right.



- Ben, I'm sorry.

- We'll be fine.



Meet me at the car.



Suspect has arrived.



Hello, Mr Gates.



Mr Gates, face your father's car and

put your hands behind your back, please.



- We got one in custody.

- Gates, you're a hard man to find.



Could you please be careful?



Riley, do you know

how to get in touch with lan?



Excuse me?



That's some story.



Well, it's the same story I tried to tell you

guys before the Declaration was stolen.



- By you.

- No, by lan. I stole it to stop him.



I did it alone.

Dr Chase was not involved.



And lan still ended up with

the Declaration of Independence.



Because of you.



So here's your options.



Door number one,

you go to prison for a very long time.



Door number two, we are going to get back

the Declaration of Independence,



you help us find it, and you still

go to prison for a very long time,



but you feel better inside.



Is there a door that doesn't lead to prison?



- Someone's got to go to prison, Ben.

- Yeah.



So what are these for?



It's a way to read the map.






Knights Templar.






Invisible treasure map.



- So what'd it say?

- "Heere at the wall."



Nothing else.



It's just another clue.



It looks like lan Howe

could be a false identity.



Follow up with ATF and INS.



There's more to it.



- Standard tap procedure.

- Let's check the signal, folks.



- Lock it in.

- Are we set?



- Checking source.

- Unknown number.






Hello, Ben. How are you?



- Um, chained to a desk.

- Sorry to hear that.



I want you to meet me on the flight deck

of the USS Intrepid.



- You know where that is?

- New York.



Meet me there at ten o'clock

tomorrow morning.



And bring those glasses

you found at Independence Hall.



Yeah, I know about the glasses.



We can take a look at the Declaration,

and then you can be on your way.



And I'm supposed to believe that.



I told you from the start,

I only wanted to borrow it.



You can have it. And the glasses.



I'll even throw in the pipe

from the Charlotte.



I'll be there.



And tell the FBI agents

listening in on this call



if they want the Declaration back,

and not just a box of confetti,



then you'll come alone.



- Take positions.

- Perimeter looks normal.



- Can I get a status report?

- Crow's nest in position. Port side is quiet.



Copy that.



- Gates is on the flight deck.

- Eyes on Gates.



- Do not lose sight of primary mark.

- Brian, you're clear with NYPD.



- I have a visual.

- Gates.



Stay with the program.



I hope your agents are all under four feet

tall and wearing little scarves.



Otherwise lan's gonna know they're here.



As soon as he shows you the Declaration,

we'll move in.



Don't try anything.

Just let us handle it.



You know, Agent Sadusky,

something I've noticed about fishing:



it never works out so well for the bait.



Sir, we've got some traffic incoming.

Looks like a sightseeing helicopter.



Unit two,

get an eyeball on that chopper.



Agent Michaels, get FAA flight plans

and authorization records on that craft.



If that's not Mr Howe,

I want to know who it is.



- I got him. He's coming from the north.

- Gates. Are you with me?



Well, I'm sure not against you,

if that's what you're asking.



We've got some interference

on Gates's mike, sir.



This I know.



Hello, Ben.



Thomas Edison needed only one way

to make a light bulb.



Sound familiar?



- Keep sightlines clear.

- What's the devil's going on?



There's a lot of commotion.

We can't see Gates.



Go to the starboard observation point

behind the F-   and here's what you do.



Gates? Gates?



Air Tour helicopter,

you are in controlled airspace.



Vacate immediately.



Who's got Gates?



- All agents, report in.

- I can't see anything.



- Did Gates speak to anybody?

- Target is moving.



- He's heading towards the stern.

- I've got him. He's coming this way.



Anyone got a view of our friend lan Howe?



lan Howe is not at the stern, sir.



Then why is he heading there?



He's at the observation deck.






I'm still not against you.



But I found door number three.

And I'm taking it.



- What's he talking about?

- Move in!



Move in! Move in on Gates!



Divers are a go.



- Snipers, go to action zebra.

- All teams, move in. Pursue at own risk.



- I repeat, pursue at own risk.

- You first.



Holy mackerel. He set us up.



Agent Dawes, do you have a visual?

Can you see Gates in the water?



Sir, it's the Hudson. Nothing is visible.



Smart fish.



Hello, Ben. Welcome to New Jersey.



- What'd you do with Abigail and Riley?

- Hope these fit.



We had to guess your sizes.



I said, what'd you do

with Abigail and Riley?



He's the only one who could've

told you that line about Edison.



Did you bring the glasses?



I don't know.

Tell me what's happening here.



Ask your girlfriend.



She's the one calling all the shots now.



She won't shut up.



Yeah, hello.



It's for you.



- Hello.

- Hi, sweetie. How's your day going?



Uh, interesting, dear.



So, what, you working with lan now?



It turns out helping someone escape

from FBI custody is a criminal act.



And he's the only criminal we knew.



- So we called him and made a deal.

- Well, you're...



You're... you're... you're all right, yeah?

I mean you're safe?



Yeah, we both are.



Riley's right here, doing

something clever with a computer.



I'm tracking him through the... Hey!



I'm tracking you through the GPS

in Shaw's phone.



They take a turn anywhere we don't want,

we'll know it. So don't worry.



If lan tries to double-cross us, we can call

the FBI and tell them right where you are.



- And where to find lan.

- And where is that?



Right across the street

from where we're hiding,



at the intersection

of Wall Street and Broadway.



Well, you figured out the clue.



Simple. "Heere at the wall."

Wall Street and Broadway.



Ben, there is a catch.



We made lan believe

he could have the treasure.



It was the only way

we could get this far.



He's here.



Here we go.






You all right? No broken bones?

A jump like that could kill a man.



Naw, it was cool.

You should try it sometime.



The Declaration of Independence.

And the meerschaum pipe.



All yours.



- That's it?

- That's it.



I knew you'd keep your promise.

Now, where is it? Where's my treasure?



It's right here.



The map said "Heere at the wall",

spelled with two E's.



Wall Street follows the path

of an actual wall



that the original Dutch settlers built

as a defence to keep the British out.



The main gate was located at a street

called De Heere, also two E's.



Later De Heere Street was renamed

Broadway after the British got in.



So, "Heere at the wall."



Broadway, Wall Street.






Just a moment, Ben.



lan, if you break our deal, the FBI

will be only a few minutes behind you.



You might get away, you might not.



Is that all the map said?



Every word.



Oh, Ben.



You know the key

to running a convincing bluff?



Every once in a while

you've got to be holding all the cards.






Is there anything else you want to tell me?



Trinity Church. We have to go

inside Trinity Church.



Good. Excellent.



Well, why don't you ask Dr Chase

and Riley to join us?



I'm sure they're around here somewhere.



Are you all right?



What do you think? I'm a hostage.



Sit. Sit down.



- Let him go, lan.

- When we find the treasure.



No, now. Or you can figure out

the clues for yourself.



Good luck.






I don't think you fully appreciate

the gravity of the situation.



Let's have a look at that map.






It's... it's really quite something. It's...



It really is remarkable. Take a look.



- "Parkington Lane."

- "Beneath Parkington Lane."



But why would the map lead us here,

then take us somewhere else?



- What's the purpose?

- Just another clue.



Dad. No, you're right. Parkington Lane

has to be here somewhere.



A street inside the church?



Not inside. Beneath.



Beneath the church.



- I'm so sorry, Ben.

- None of this is your fault.



- I co...

- Come on.






Cooperation only lasts as long

as the status quo is unchanged.



As soon as this guy gets to wherever this

thing ends, he won't need you any more.



Or... or any of us.



So we find a way to make sure

the status quo changes in our favour.



- How?

- I'm still working on it.



Well, I guess I better

work on it too, then.



Hey! Par... Hey, I found it!



- Him!

- Ben!



It's a name.



Parkington Lane.



He was a third-degree master mason

of the Blue Lo...



Hey! Stop!






Careful no one steps in him.



All right, put it down.



OK. Who wants to go down

the creepy tunnel inside the tomb first?



Right. McGregor, Viktor, you stay here.



And if anyone should come out without me,

well... use your imagination.



Shall we?



You got a light?






Watch your step.



Come here.



Why does that never happen to me?



What's this?



It's a chandelier.






- Wow.

- Look at the elevators.



A dumbwaiter system.



How do a bunch of guys with hand tools

build all this?



Same way they built the pyramids

and the Great Wall of China.



Yeah. The aliens helped them.



Right, let's go. What are we waiting for?



I'm not going out on that thing.

    years of termite damage and rot.



Dad, do what he says.



Watch your step.



We're right under the Trinity graveyard.



That's probably why

no one ever found this.



What is that?






Shaw! Oh, God, Shaw!



Oh, my God.



Hold on! Hold on!



OK, get on the elevator. Jump!



Ben! Grab my hand.



- Come on.

- lan!



Abigail! Get on!












Get down there.

Get down there!



The Declaration.



- Do you trust me?

- Yes.



Oh, no! Ben!



Hang on!






I'm sorry. I'm sorry I dropped you.

I had to save the Declaration.



No, don't be. I would have done

exactly the same thing to you.






I would have dropped you both.




Get on.






it's not worth it.



Do you imagine any one of your lives

is more valuable to me than Shaw's?



We go on.



The status quo.

Keep the status quo.



- Now what?

- This is...



This is where it all leads.



OK, let's go.



What is this?



So where's the treasure?






This is it?



We came all this way

for a dead end?






- There's gotta be something more.

- Riley, there's nothing more.



- Another clue, or...

- No, there are no more clues!



That's it, OK? It's over!



End of the road. The treasure's gone.

Moved. Taken somewhere else.



You're not playing games with me,

are you, Ben? Hm?



You know where it is.






OK, go.



Hey, wait a minute.



- Hey! lan, wait!

- Wait, wait, wait!



- lan...

- We'll be trapped.



- Don't do this.

- You can't just leave us here.



Yes, I can.

Unless Ben tells me the next clue.



There isn't another clue.



lan, why don't you come back down here

and we can talk through this together?



- Don't speak again.

- OK.



The clue. Where's the treasure?






- The lantern.

- Dad...



The status quo has changed, son.






It's part of freemason teachings.



In King Solomon's temple

there was a winding staircase.



It signified the journey that had to be made

to find the light of truth.



- The lantern is the clue.

- And what does it mean?



Boston. It's Boston.



The Old North Church in Boston,



where Thomas Newton

hung a lantern in the steeple,



to signal Paul Revere that the British

were coming. One if by land, two if by sea.



One lantern. Under the winding staircase

of the steeple, that's where we have to look.



- Thank you.

- Hey, you have to take us with you.



Why? So you can escape in Boston?



Besides, with you out of the picture

there's less baggage to carry.



What if we lied?



Did you?



What if there's another clue?



Then I'll know right where to find you.



See you, Ben.



- No!

- There's no other way out!



- Come back!

- You're gonna need us, lan!



We're all gonna die.



It's gonna be OK, Riley.

I'm sorry I yelled at you.



It's OK, kiddo.



OK, boys, what's going on? The British

came by sea. It was two lanterns, not one.



lan needed another clue,

so we gave it to him.



It was a fake.

It was a fake clue.



The all-seeing eye.



"Through the all-seeing eye."



That means... by the time lan

figures it out and comes back here,



we'll still be trapped,

and he'll shoot us then.



Either way, we're gonna die.



Nobody's gonna die.

There's another way out.






Through the treasure room.









Looks like someone got here first.



I'm sorry, Ben.



It's gone.



- Listen, Ben...

- It may have even been gone



before Charles Carroll

told the story to Thomas Gates.



It doesn't matter.



I know. Cos you were right.



No, I wasn't right.



This room is real, Ben.



And that means the treasure is real.



We're in the company of

some of the most brilliant minds in history,



because you found

what they left behind for us to find



and understood the meaning of it.



You did it, Ben. For all of us.



Your grandfather, and all of us.



And I've never been so happy

to be proven wrong.



I just...



really thought

I was gonna find the treasure.






Then we just keep looking for it.



I'm in.






Not to be Johnny Rain Cloud here,

but that's not gonna happen.



Because as far as I can see,

we're still trapped down here.






Now, Ben,

where is this other way out?



Well, that's it.

It doesn't make any sense,



because the first thing the builders

would have done after getting down here



was cut a secondary shaft back out for air...



- Right.

...and in case of cave-ins.



Could it really be that simple?



"The secret lies with Charlotte."



Scrolls from the library at Alexandria.



Could this be possible?



It's a big... bluish-green man,



with a strange-looking goatee.



I'm guessing that's significant.






Riley, are you crying?












Do you have a cell phone I could borrow?



- Just like that?

- Just like that.



You do know you just handed me

your biggest bargaining chip?



The Declaration of Independence

is not a bargaining chip.



Not to me.



Have a seat.



So what's your offer?



How about a bribe? Say...



ten billion dollars?



I take it you found the treasure?



It's about five stories

beneath your shoes.



You know, the Templars

and the Freemasons believed



that the treasure was too great

for any one man to have, not even a king.



That's why they went to such lengths

to keep it hidden.



That's right.



The Founding Fathers believed

the same thing about government.



I figure their solution

will work for the treasure too.



Give it to the people.



Divide it amongst the Smithsonian,

the Louvre, the Cairo museum...



There's thousands of years

of world history down there.



And it belongs to the world,

and everybody in it.



You really don't understand

the concept of a bargaining chip.



OK, here's what I want.

Dr Chase gets off completely clean,



not even a little Post-it

on her service record.






I want the credit for the find

to go to the entire Gates family,



with the assistance of Mr Riley Poole.



And what about you?



I'd really love not to go to prison.



I can't even begin to describe

how much I would love not to go to prison.



Someone's got to go to prison, Ben.



Well, if you've got a helicopter,

I think I can help with that.



Freeze! FBI!



- Freeze! Don't move!

- Show me your hands!



- Put your hands up.

- Move, move, move.



You're under arrest, Mr Howe.



We've got you on kidnapping,

attempted murder...



and trespassing on government property.



Yeah. You got it, chief.

Thank you. Bye.



They want us in Cairo next week

for the opening of the exhibit.



They're sending a private jet.



That's fun.



Yeah, big whoop. We could have had

a whole fleet of private jets.



Ten per cent, Ben. They offered you

ten per cent and you turned it down.



Riley, we've been over this.

It was too much. I couldn't accept it.



I still have this splinter that's been festering

for three months from an old piece of wood.



OK, I'll tell you what.



Next time we find a treasure

that redefines history for all mankind,



you make the call on the finder's fee.



That's not as funny.



What do you care?

You got the girl.



- It's true.

- It's true.



Rub it in.

Enjoy your spoils...



while I sit on one per cent.



One stinkin' per cent.

Half of one per cent, actually.



One per cent. Unbelievable.



I'm sorry for your suffering, Riley.



For the record, Ben,

I like the house.



You know, I chose this estate

because in      Charles Carroll met...



Yeah, someone that did something

in history and had fun. Great. Wonderful.



Could have had a bigger house.



- I made something for you.

- You did? What?



- A map.

- A map?



Where does it lead to?



You'll figure it out.
