MAN: He's in the other room.
Are you Thomas Gates?
We got something that we'd like you to take a look at.
I hear you're quite good with puzzles and riddles.
It's a coded message.
It's a playfair cipher.
A playfair cipher?
Can you decode it?
A cipher's impossible to decode without the key.
What do you mean by a key?
A keyword or phrase.
I believe what you need is right there.
It'll take some time.
Go on. I'll take your diary.
I'll meet up with you later.
MAN: Calculate the distance and you're sure to hit the mark
in just about most things as well as shootin'.
Ready to pour out all over you like apple sass over roast pork.
WOMAN: ..Till I am quite sure of the American.
WOMAN: Ah, that's my own girl.
Augusta, dear, to your room.
MAN: To turn you inside out, old gal,
you sockdologising old man-trap!
GUNSHOT AND SCREAMING
Sic semper tyrannis!
This is a treasure map.
KGC? You're Knights of the Golden Circle.
You're a traitor.
You're all traitors.
MAN: President Lincoln's been shot!
Everybody out! All of you!
The killer's on the loose!
I'd much appreciate it
if you'd finish deciphering that code now.
GLASS SHATTERS, SHOUTING
-The war is over.
You're wrong about that.
The war has only just begun!
(GASPING) Charles. The debt that all men...men pay.
The debt that all men p...(STAMMERS)
Dad! No, please!
(SOBBING) Come back. It's not fair.
Help! Somebody help, please!
the Knights of the Golden Circle
was a southern extremist group
operating in the north to subvert union forces.
Had Thomas not burned the legendary missing pages
from the Booth diary,
the killers may have found a vast treasure of gold,
and the union may well have lost the civil war.
I'd like to thank Ben and Patrick Gates...
Thank you. Thank you very much.
..and say what a wonderful addition Thomas Gates is
-To our civilian heroes exhibit.
Thank you, Dr Nichols.
I only wish my grandfather had been here to see this wonderful day.
Excuse me. I have a question I'd like to ask.
What do you think ever happened to that Booth diary page
-that was pulled out of the fire?
-We may never know.
You see, I have one of those great-great-granddaddies, just like you,
way up in my family tree.
Name of Silas Wilkinson.
He used to tell a story about the night Lincoln was shot.
As Silas tells it,
Booth didn't seek out Thomas Gates
regarding the treasure map that night.
It was Thomas who called the meeting.
A meeting to plan the assassination of Lincoln.
-That's a lie!
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you...
one of the missing pages
from the infamous diary of John Wilkes Booth,
with the name Thomas Gates written on a list
along with all the other killers.
Booth was a student of Latin.
He shouted, "sic semper tyrannis" after he shot Lincoln.
-"Thus always to..."
-"Thus always to tyrants." We know.
Mary Surratt was convicted and hanged
for supplying Booth with a rifle and field glasses.
"Thomas Gates, artifex."
"Designer", or "mastermind."
I know what it means.
He must have, uh, planned the assassination.
Could mean mastermind of anything.
You see that? Burned out right there.
I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you.
-May I, Mr...
I'll see if this new page matches the Booth diary.
This is an outrage. You're calling my grandfather a liar.
Well, with all due respect, sir,
-now you're calling my great-great-granddaddy a liar.
-Yes, sir, I am.
This isn't some garbage from a history book. My grandfather told me this story himself.
I saw the truth of it in his eyes.
I'm sorry, sir. I truly am.
We'll test this thoroughly, Patrick, to authenticate it.
It can't be.
Maps to presidents' houses.
Keys to locks that don't exist.
What's the point? What am I looking for?
Proof, proof, proof.
Oh, wow. Is this a book about the Templar treasure?
Yes, it is about the Templar treasure,
but it's also about other things.
Conspiracy theories, urban legends,
and other myths that are true.
So the author's here signing copies?
I'm the author.
Yeah. See, uh...
There's a picture of me right there.
I think it's a pretty good picture.
I thought that guy Benjamin Gates
was the one that found the treasure.
Well, yes, Ben did, but I am the co-finder.
Oh. I've never heard of you.
Oh, my gosh. Are you Ben Gates?
Yes. Yes, I am.
Do you own a red Ferrari?
Yes, I do.
Well, it's being towed.
Wait! Wait! That's my car!
Where's the Ferrari?
IRS impounded it.
My accountant set up a corporation
on an island that didn't exist
and assured me that that's how rich people do it.
Then I got audited,
and slapped with a huge fine, plus interest!
You want to know what taxes are on 5 million?
But enough about me.
What's new with you?
Well, my girlfriend kicked me out,
I'm living with my dad,
-and my family killed President Lincoln.
I need your help.
I can't believe you have to break into your own house.
I need to get Abigail's ID badge.
She has access to the Booth diary page.
Why don't you just ask Abigail for her help?
She changed the alarm code, Riley. She's not going to talk to me.
We have 30 seconds after the alert starts
to disable the alarm.
I know I'll probably regret asking this,
but what happened with you and Abigail?
I don't know, you know, I don't know.
-She started using the word "so" a lot.
Yeah, like, "So, I guess my opinion doesn't matter."
"So, you seem to always know what's best."
"So, I guess I'm invisible."
And now I've moved out, and we're dividing the furniture...
Can't live with them -
especially if they change the alarm codes.
You did that in 25 seconds.
That's why I tell people to get a dog.
All right, let's go.
That's not Abigail's car.
She's on a date.
Isn't that that guy? The White House guy.
So the White House Easter egg roll is next Monday.
-Maybe if you're not...
Abigail: What happens if kids don't find all the eggs?
Wow. You work in a museum and you live in one.
Wow, what clever repartee(!) She must really like him.
All right, let me give you a tour of the house.
OK. That's actually kind of...
What are you doing here?
I just needed to get some things.
Connor, good to see you again.
How did you get in, Ben?
Riley! Come out here!
Hey! What are you doing here?
I mean, it's your house, but...
I sent you a copy of my book. Did you get a chance...
No, I haven't read it yet.
I know you. You're the White House curator.
I'm Riley. We met, uh, back in...
Oh, right. You're, uh, Ben's assistant.
Um, maybe I should go.
Yeah, I'm really...
Dinner tomorrow night?
I...I actually already have plans for tomorrow.
Oh, you do?
Of course you do.
But I'm free on Friday.
I cannot believe you broke in.
What did you take?
It's just my things.
Hand it over, Ben.
-I need to see the Booth diary page.
You saw the page yourself.
There is no treasure map on it.
No, it's a cipher leading to a treasure map.
Did anyone spectral-image the page?
No need to. The ink writing on the page is clearly visible.
It could have been erased or faded.
You're the director of document conservation. You know all this.
It's not up to me. It's not my department.
That department reports to your department.
Come on. Abigail, one look under infrared.
You can have the Boston tea tables.
Both of them?
We've been looking at this page for hours.
There's nothing there.
Ben, I really don't think we're going to find anything on this page.
Look at it this way,
in 100 years, no one's going to remember
anyone involved in the Lincoln assassination besides Booth.
That's not true.
Do you know the expression, "his name is mud"?
-Yes, of course.
-Do you know the origin of the expression?
-Does anyone but you?
Dr Samuel Mudd was convicted of being a co-conspirator
in the Lincoln assassination.
The evidence was circumstantial,
he was later pardoned, but it didn't matter.
Mudd's name still lives in infamy.
And I will not let Thomas Gates's name be mud.
Look at this.
That's quite something, isn't it?
Yeah. It says "smudge."
Residual ink from the facing page. Flip it.
The letters are backwards.
-It's a cipher.
-Yes, it is.
It's a cipher. See how the letters are coupled?
Playfair ciphers encode letters in pairs.
This could prove his story.
Unless you decode the cipher, this does not prove a theory.
-That's OK. That's OK. All we need is a 5-letter keyword.
-What's the keyword?
-I don't know yet.
Uh, can I get a printout of this?
There's a billion words in the English language.
Got to be a logical... Let's start from the beginning.
"A" - aardvark.
I don't want to rain on your parade here, Ben,
But I don't think this is going to stop
Dr Nichols from announcing the discovery of the page tomorrow.
No, now, wait.
Can't you ask him to wait until I prove Thomas is innocent?
What if he isn't innocent?
Sir? Looks like our old friend Ben Gates is in the news again.
What did he find now, Atlantis?
A guy came forward with a missing Booth diary page.
That's not even the best part. Listen to this.
"On the page are the names of the conspirators in the Lincoln assassination,
"as well as a previously unknown conspirator, Thomas Gates.
"Thomas Gates is said to be the great-great-grandfather
"of renowned treasure hunter Benjamin Franklin-Gates."
And I thought my relatives were bad.
-What do we know about this Wilkinson?
Guy claims he had this page for 140 years,
then just suddenly comes forward with it? Why?
We'll find out.
How's he doing?
NICHOLS: 'We're extremely grateful to the Wilkinson family
'for coming forth with the page.
'On the page is a name
'of a previously unknown conspirator, Thomas Gates.'
Nichols has bought into it. You see this?
Dad, would you stop watching that?
It's on the internet.
No stopping it now.
'Gates may have been the architect...'
-They have no understanding.
-You know the truth.
That's all that matters.
-You heard the story from Grandpa Charles.
This guy's got evidence. He's got everything.
We have a story. We have nothing.
For one brief moment, the Gates family could hold its head up.
Now we're a bunch of crazies.
But we're not liars.
Look, Wilkinson is saying that Thomas Gates
was a mastermind to one of the darkest hours
in US history,
and he burned the diary page to cover that up?
You and I both know he burned the page
to keep Booth's men from finding the treasure,
and that's what we're going to prove.
-There's only one way to prove it.
-You have to find the treasure.
And you're going to help me find it. So come on,
let's hear the story again from Grandpa Charles.
Grandpa heard his father say, "treasure map."
Then there was a commotion.
OK, I've got all that. Was there anything after that?
Anything he said, something he did, anything at all?
Wait a minute.
He took his son's hand.
He looked him in the eye, and he said,
with his dying breath,
"the debt that all men pay."
"The debt that all men pay"?
The debt that Thomas paid.
Well, that's five letters.
-It's the keycode.
The debt that all men pay is death.
-Laboulaye! What is that?
It's a who. Edouard Laboulaye. Where's the phone?
I can't find anything in this mess.
It's temporary till I find a new place.
Find the old one. I like her.
Oh, Abigail, please.
-Nice to meet you.
Have a seat.
Thanks for agreeing to meet with me.
Of course. I was actually going to call you about the diary page.
We actually found some latent letter fragments on it.
Take a look.
Random letters. A cipher.
-Gates seen this?
He's actually the one that discovered it.
-Not a problem.
I need one minute.
Please, take your time.
We cracked the cipher. It's "Laboulaye."
'The cipher spells "Laboulaye."'
So, Laboulaye was well-known in France. It could be nothing.
Or maybe there was a treasure map like Thomas Gates said there was,
And Laboulaye had it.
We only got a partial on the next word.
-Thank you, Abigail!
Laboulaye lady. Do you know what Laboulaye was planning
right around the time Lincoln was assassinated?
OK, Ben, I've got to go.
There's a map or a clue to a map on the statue...
-She hung up.
-She took your call. That was good.
Sounds like he cracked the cipher. Well, I couldn't help but overhear.
Laboulaye? As in Edouard Laboulaye?
Well, he seems to believe so, yes.
He was the man who had the idea for the Statue of Liberty.
Are you saying that there's a treasure map in the Statue of Liberty?
Laboulaye was a Mason. They built clues into everything.
Did you learn that from my book?
-You have an interest in history?
-I'm fascinated by it.
Civil war, especially. My family's descended from Confederate general, Albert Pike.
He was a remarkable man.
But then again, what is history but a marker
for the deeds of great men?
A man only has one lifetime,
but history can remember you forever.
So the only question is, which Statue of Liberty?
Is there more than one?
There are three, actually, Riley.
One is in New York,
one in the Luxembourg garden.
But he only referred to one as his "lady."
This is, like, impossible, what you're doing.
I'm glad you're enjoying it.
Laboulaye had to leave a clue somewhere on here.
Move in on the torch.
Let me get there.
It's not as easy as it looks.
No. Believe me, I understand.
Excuse me, officer. May I help you?
Ah, American, eh?
Of course, you see no problem
in disturbing everyone's pleasant morning
with your buzzing there.
Do you know how much our constitution
was influenced by your man Montesquieu?
-You know Montesquieu?
Oui, Montesquieu, yeah.
"A government should be set up so that...
BOTH: "..No man need be afraid of another."
-That's very good.
I got it, I got it.
I hope you read French.
He's a cop.
Um, "Across the sea these twins stand determined..."
"To preserve what we are looking for.
It's a clue.
"These twins stand resolute."
Let's see. Resolute twins.
-And then twins.
Siamese twins? Siam?
Trade routes between France and Thailand?
A British ship that got lost in the Arctic in the 1800s.
It was salvaged by American whalers,
And then congress sent it back to England.
When the ship was finally retired,
Queen Victoria had two desks made from its timbers.
Voila. Resolute twins.
And where are those desks now?
The closest one is in London.
Riley, how fast can we get to Buckingham Palace?
I don't know. Why don't you ask your new best friend?
HE SPEAKS FRENCH
He's going to call you a cab.
Nice helicopter. Is that yours?
-Yes, actually. It is.
-OK, so you get the ticket.
Mitch Wilkinson studied history at Virginia Military Institute.
Graduated 1978. He ran a private security company
which had contracts in Iraq during the invasion
and also in the Congo in the late nineties.
These guys are trained mercenaries, as well as being black-market antiquities dealers.
So why does a black market antiquities dealer
give up a rare civil war artefact,
something he could sell to a private collector
for a good deal of money?
So the Queen's office is here.
The elevator shaft gets you close,
but the only direct access is through security.
Well, that should be exciting.
Yeah, we got to get you in that room.
MOBILE PHONE RINGS Let's see.
It's Patrick Gates's phone. He's calling Ben.
Give me that.
The house was broken into last night. I was attacked.
Call the police. I'm coming home.
-What good would that do?
'They didn't take anything. And besides, I'm fine.'
OK. We're in London. We're going to Buckingham Palace.
'We have an appointment with the curator tomorrow afternoon.'
-'OK, son, just be careful. Good-bye.'
Someone else is after the treasure.
Of course someone else is after the treasure.
It's the axiom of treasure hunting.
We have to hurry and see that desk.
We don't want to miss that appointment.
Hi. Ben Gates.
See security. They'll let you in.
OK, it's teatime, chaps.
I'm looking for the curator's office. Which way was it again?
You just follow the stairs round, then turn first left.
Oh, thank you so much.
-Abigail? 'What's she doing here?'
-What are you doing here?
-Your dad called me.
Said your next clue was here.
'She's really there?' Look, Ben...
-'Drop her. Lose her.'
-I want to help.
That's very nice, but it's kind of a bad time right now.
"A bad time right now"?
-It's a bad time.
OK, I just flew all the way to London to offer my help...
-'Ben, remember the plan.'
-Now you don't need it?
You're the one who's making a scene right now.
-I'm not making a scene right now!
-We want to make a scene.
Well then, fine!
If that's what you want, let's have it out right now!
-'Ah, so subtle.'
-Oh, let me guess! It's the wrong time!
It's the wrong place! I'm wrong again!
Wrong about us, wrong about Thomas Gates,
wrong that you'd like the Queen Anne chair!
You're wrong to assume I'd like the chair.
You see? You see, everybody? Listen to this.
This is more interesting than that.
She thinks that even when I'm right, I'm wrong!
Isn't that right? Abigail,
just because I answer a question quickly,
doesn't make it wrong.
Not if the right answer is something
we need to figure out together as a couple.
-That's what couples do, Ben!
-You and your missus, take it outside.
Oh, now look what you've done.
You've brought the little bobbies down on us.
You take the missus outside. I'm staying right here.
-Good afternoon, sir. (ENGLISH ACCENT)
-Been drinking, have we?
Just popped down to the pub for a pint. Bit of all right.
Going to arrest a man for that?
Going to detain a Blighter for enjoying his whiskey?
-That's enough, sir.
-Bangers and mash.
-Bubbles and squeak. Smoked eel pie.
That's it! Dismount the banister!
# I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts
# Here they are, standing in a row
# Small ones, big ones, some as big as your head... #
That was brilliant.
What's wrong with being right?
Nothing. You should try it sometime, Ben.
Oh, you're saying that I'm never right?
-I did not say that.
-Hoo! So I'm wrong again.
Ha, ha. Now, see, there you are correct.
Oh, capital. Topper.
You know what? Your mother told me about you.
She always said never...
(both talking at once)
In here, please.
Step inside, madame.
Why don't you just make a list
Of what's OK for me to say or not right for...
-..what is right or wrong.
You two lovebirds stay put, right?
No! No, no. Don't leave me in here!
(Feedback) That's great. Wow.
What is going on?
I'm sorry for getting you roped into this,
but you were excellent back there.
Thank you. So were you.
When did you figure out it was a fake argument?
When did you figure out I was really arguing
during the fake argument?
Right in the middle there.
The part where, "I always assume that I'm right."
Riley, get us out of here.
Which I don't get. Because if I turn out to be right
After I assume that I'm right, then I'm correct, yes?
When you get to a conclusion without asking
and you happen to be right, you got lucky.
I get lucky a lot.
So where does that leave me, Ben?
You guys are so great together.
-So you want to know why I'm here?
I think there may be a clue
on the resolute desk in the queen's study.
Does that help?
I just don't understand why it's so difficult for you
to include others in your decisions.
Just because you may know what my answer is going to be
doesn't mean you don't have to ask me.
'Door number one, opening.'
OK, let me try this out.
Abigail, would you like to come with me, please?
Yes, thank you.
Ridiculous. You're staying here. It's too dangerous.
I am so coming.
-Door number 2.
-Door 2 coming up.
-You're not coming.
'You should be near a service elevator.'
What are you doing? Are those for the queen?
Queen's not here. There's no flag flying.
Queen's at Windsor.
What are you doing, Ben?
I'm going to go see the desk, without you.
No, no, no. Don't let her go.
All right, get in. Get in. Get in!
Will you give me the flowers back, please?
You're wearing the perfume I bought you.
So I think it smells kind of pretty.
It's the flowers, Ben.
No, it's not.
'OK, now turn left.'
'I mean right. Go right.'
The flowers... petals...stamens.
The resolute desk.
We're looking for... writing,
patterns in the carvings.
Could be anything.
Hey, look at this.
"Malcolm Gilvary, 1880."
Hold on one second.
Here we go. Malcolm Gilvary.
Well, he didn't make furniture.
He made Chinese puzzle boxes.
I think these drawers work like tumblers in a safe.
OK, 4 drawers. 4-digit combination?
What about a year?
Uh, well, let me see. Queen Victoria, born 1819.
So you got one...
OK, 1876 was on the inscription
on the statue in Paris. Let's try that.
These markings, like Incan or Aztec.
I have never seen any symbols like this.
I mean, this looks centuries older
than Civil War.
What do you think it means?
I doubt it has anything to do with the plot to assassinate Lincoln.
'Mayday. Mayday. Ben, get out of there.'
Oi! Where are my detainees?
OK, let's make some noise.
The fire alarm's gone off.
Uh-oh. God save the queen.
All units, go to action zebra.
-What's going on now?
-Haven't the foggiest.
Someone or something is causing this.
All officers check your primary stations.
This doesn't make any sense.
Find the source terminal
and check public areas 4 and 8.
This way, ladies and gentlemen.
Thank you very much. Keep moving, please.
Keep walking until you're on the other side of the fountain.
Excuse me, excuse me. Coming through.
Got 'em. I got them.
They're at the main gate.
Oi! Sparkle, come on.
Oh, oh, oh.
All right, I'm a little bit allergic.
-Thank you. OK. See you later.
Thanks for waiting for me.
Can I see the thing?
Daniel, hold it.
What is that?
I went to Buckingham Palace and all I got was this old piece of wood?
Look at the symbols. I've never seen anything like this.
It's an incredible discovery.
Stop them. Go, go, go!
He's the one who's after the treasure.
OK, I'll drive.
We're in England.
It's a gun! Get down!
Hang on! Keep your heads down.
Hey, who are you?
Ben, they're... they're getting closer.
What is their problem?
Go left! Go left!
Turn, turn, turn!
Is everybody OK?
Come on, come on.
Danny, I want them stopped.
Go. Go, go, go, go!
Did you see where he went?
(Cell phone rings)
-What is that?
You have his number in your speed dial?
Mitch, this has gotta end before someone gets hurt.
Give me what you got at Buckingham Palace, it won't be necessary.
Tell that to my father.
(Cell phone beeps)
Why are they standing in the middle of the street? (Honking)
Where are all these people going?
Why's everyone running?
He's right there! Go, go!
-Get out of the way!
Did I just run over a man's foot?
Watch the people!
Go! Go! Faster!
Right over there.
All right, all right, I got them.
-They're still behind us.
-This phone have a camera in it?
No. No, it's broken.
All right. Give me the plank.
Hang on, we're going to run a red light.
Hack into the London police database
and get a copy of the picture from that traffic cam.
-You can't do it?
-No, I can do it.
I just don't like that you assume that I can do it.
-Why, thank you, Riley.
He's got it.
What is it?
I don't know, but it's ours. Let's go.
Nice to see you two together again.
Yeah, well, we're not.
Oh, I was hoping to get some of these boxes out of the house.
I can't read the whole thing,
but I can tell you that
these are definitely pre-colonial native American markings.
It's easily 500 years old.
I can identify one symbol.
Look at this. Do you know what that is?
Sacred calendrical? I don't know.
That symbol is Cibola.
The City of Gold.
The City of Gold.
"In 1527, a Spanish ship wrecked on the Florida coast.
"There were only 4 survivors.
"One was a slave named Esteban
"who saved the local tribe's dying chief.
"As a reward, he was taken to their sacred city,
"a city built from solid gold."
"Later, when Esteban tried to find the city again,
"he never could,
"but the legend grew,
"and every explorer came to the new world in search of it.
"When General Custer's search for gold ended
"with his last stand at Little Bighorn,
"it became clear none would ever find it."
Ben, can you imagine
if the Confederates got their hands
on the City of Gold?
I'm going to go talk to her.
-You're coming with me.
Hey. No-one else can translate it.
There are others. There are several others.
For ancient Native American?
There's no-one better.
Look, Ben, I can't go with you.
It's been, what? 25 years.
There's a reason why we haven't spoken
in 32 years.
We have nothing in common.
-Oh, yes, of course.
And I'm sure she's just as proud of you as I am.
Will you relax. It's gonna be fine.
Sure. I should look at the bright side.
It's been a long time,
maybe she lost her memory and she won't recognise me.
I hate her!
We're in the right place.
I'm gonna go ahead and take myself
out of the line of fire for this one, guys.
Abigail! What a surprise!
You see? One syllable, a knife in the heart.
-Oh, no. No, no.
-She can do that.
Yes, and I can also track
the whereabouts of my toothbrush.
I was not the one that left the toothbrushes in Marrakech.
I stowed them both in the travel case, as instructed.
Yes, and you also... you also insisted on loading the luggage into the taxi.
I didn't insist. I loaded the luggage.
Yes, but not the travel case.
The travel case is not luggage.
The travel case goes into the luggage.
Who was in charge of packing the luggage?
I could not get the travel case into the luggage
because it was full with that stupid rug you bought.
You thought it had some kind of secret stitching.
It did have secret stitching.
-6 phony green leather suitcases...
-(Both talking at once)
I need you to take a look at this.
What is that a picture of?
It's very interesting. We think it might be Olmec.
Yes, yes, definitely proto-zoquean.
We were hoping that you could translate it.
Yes, of course you were.
Oh, this doesn't involve another treasure hunt, does it?
Mom, this is actually very important.
All right. What have we got here?
This...this glyph here, that means "bird." And that means...
Uh, "noble bird."
"Find the noble bird, let him take you by the hand
"and give you passage to the sacred temple."
Oh, you think this is a treasure map for Cibola, don't you?
Well, that is exactly what it is.
No, Patrick. This glyph doesn't mean Cibola.
It means, "the centre of the world."
You know, you used to like it.
She fell in love with me on a treasure hunt.
That was not love. That was excitement,
-adrenaline, and tequila.
And I was trying to get course credit.
Well, the treasure hunting paid off,
in case you haven't read the papers lately.
It had nothing to do with you. That was Ben.
Ben found the treasure. You did nothing.
Patrick, Emily, please.
Can we just figure out what's on the page?
Well, that's it, I'm afraid.
These glyphs are only partials.
So you only have half a treasure map.
Not that I'm surprised.
At least we know where the rest of the map is.
You know where it is? Why didn't you tell me?
Because obviously you have a tendency to overreact!
So am I.
So where is it?
The inscription on the statue in Paris said,
"These twins stand resolute."
We think the map's divided
between the two resolute desks.
The resolute desk. The resolute desk?
The president? What president?
But that means...
Wait, so we have to...
(Sighs) The White House?
The oval office...
to be exact.
Why would I overreact to that?
That's not what I signed on for.
Could we please focus on the issue at hand?
It's early. Pre-Columbian.
Can you translate it?
Are you kidding?
This is an extinct, exceedingly rare language.
There's only a handful of people who study these languages anymore.
And where are we to find them?
Universities, I suppose.
-But you don't even have the whole thing.
-What do you mean?
These glyphs here... they're cut off.
There's more to the map?
Well, how are we going to find that?
Well, we won't have to.
Gates will get it somehow.
The resolute desk is near the south wall
in the oval office. Look at this. Look.
Small door on the front of the desk.
FDR had that put in so that guests couldn't see his wheelchair, but...
Guys, take a look at this.
This could work.
Why, Abigail, I do believe it's time
for you to make a date with your new boyfriend.
I think you're right.
'We hope you're enjoying the White House Easter egg roll.
'Face painting continues at 2:00 near the south fountain.'
Is that Connor in the bunny suit?
Aw, thank you.
You know, I've never been to an Easter egg roll before.
-Yeah, I love it.
Hey, I know you.
killed president Lincoln.
No, that would be John Wilkes Booth.
Eisenschiml says that Booth was a tool
in a greater conspiracy that involved men in Lincoln's own cabinet.
Absurd. Eisenschiml's book is filled
with spotty research and false assumptions.
How do you explain why Lincoln's bodyguard
left his post that night?
Because president Lincoln
was never accompanied by guards when attending the theatre.
Are you listening? Especially on Good Friday.
How do you explain why all the bridges out of Washington
were closed except one,
the one Booth needed to escape?
Ok, run along now, you impossible child. Run along.
What is going on with the education in America?
-I'm so glad you decided to come.
-We just ran into each other.
Well, aren't you going to ask him?
-Ask me what?
No, really, what?
I really wouldn't want to impose.
-Well, what she means is she doesn't think you can.
-Doesn't think I can what?
-She wants to see the Oval Office.
No. I know that is way too much to ask.
No, it's, uh...
-I can do that.
That is so cool, Connor.
I have always wanted to see the Oval Office.
Well...here we are.
and crenellated moulding. Love it.
Amazing feeling, isn't it, standing in here?
Yes. Amazing, huh?
Oh, that's, uh... the resolute desk.
You might recognise it from the famous photo of young JFK Jr
playing underneath while his father was working.
But...many people don't know
that this desk has a twin that sits in Buckingham Palace.
Isn't that something?
Every president since Rutherford B Hayes
has used that desk, except, uh, Johnson and Nixon.
Oh, and Ford, of course.
Abigail! Did you lose an earring?
Oh! I...I did, yes.
Connor, these were given to me by my grandmother.
Well, I suppose we should look for it.
You wouldn't want anyone finding an earring
that doesn't belong to the first lady in the Oval Office.
considering we're not supposed to be in here.
Why don't we, um, go over here
and check it out?
I'll check over here.
Do you think it fell down here?
You did sit on the sofa.
Oh, the bunnies.
You found it.
Thank you so much!
You're just the best. Mm.
Oh... Thank you.
It was empty.
Someone must have taken it.
The brightest men in our country
sat at that desk for over 100 years.
Take a look at this.
Of course one of them found the map.
There's a symbol stamped into the wood.
The presidential seal.
It's not the presidential seal.
See, the eagle's holding a scroll instead of olive branches.
I'm not sure what this is.
So what do we do now?
Did none of you read my book?
The eagle clutching the scroll.
-Do you know what it means?
But it's not something that I could tell you.
It's something I have to show you.
In my book.
You didn't even open it?
I was moving.
"The President's Secret Book"?
"The President's Secret Book."
It happens to be a collection of documents
for presidents by presidents,
and for presidents' eyes only.
And I'm not just talking about JFK here, guys.
The 18 and a half missing minutes of the Watergate tapes.
Did the "Apollo" really land on the moon?
Did it? Did it?
And the coup de grace...
Oh, come on, Riley.
That's... that's urban legend.
Is it, Abigail? Is it?
It's just totally...
Hmm. 'Cos last time I checked,
we pretty much make our living on crazy.
He's got a point.
I guess so.
It was released in '66
under the freedom of information act.
The eagle and the scroll,
the secret symbol in the President's Book.
So you're saying that whatever was on that plank
is now in the president's secret book.
If it was you trying to convince me,
you'd have less evidence,
and I would already believe you by now.
The eagle with the scroll.
Conspiracy theorists like to believe
that it's the symbol for the president's secret book.
You bought Riley's book.
(Laughs) Your friend writes a book about government conspiracies,
and you don't think we know about it?
But is it true?
Does the president have a secret book?
Do you like ducks?
There is a book.
Why are you telling me out here?
Because inside, I'm a federal agent.
Out here, I'm talking to you as a friend, Ben.
Where's the president's book kept?
Only the current president knows.
The book is passed from president to president,
and each one chooses his own hiding place.
You're the FBI. Can't you get it for me?
The only way you'll ever see that book is if you get elected president.
Well, you never know.
All I need is a few minutes with him.
A few minutes? Really?
Ben, even if you were married to the president,
you wouldn't be able to get a few minutes with him.
Not when he's surrounded by his handlers,
but if I can get him alone.
How do you expect to get the president alone?
Before the Civil War, the states were all separate.
People used to say, "The United States are."
It wasn't until the war ended
people started saying, "The United States is."
we became one nation.
And Lincoln paid for it with his life.
So did Thomas Gates.
With his life.
So, how am I going to get him alone?
I'm going to kidnap him.
I'm gonna kidnap the President of the United States.
(LAUGHS) That's not funny.
I'm your father.
How do you expect me to respond to this?
I can't let you ruin your life.
Are you out of your mind?
All you have to do is read my book...
And you'd know you can't get to that book.
Exactly how do you plan on doing this?
I was thinking Mount Vernon.
MAN: Sir, we're gonna have to move
the president's birthday party.
Some historian is claiming the Spencer Landmark Hotel
was used for regular Klan meetings in the late 1800s.
Does anyone know if this is true?
Sir, I've got the Washington Gazette.
They want a quote on,
"Is the president being insensitive to minority issues?"
-Doesn't matter if it's true.
-Get me a list of the approved alternates.
Patty, what do you have?
Yeah, I know it's short notice.
The pipe burst in the hotel that we previously booked.
I...there is water everywhere.
A retirement party for 200 people.
Monticello is booked.
So is Gunston Hall and Tudor Place.
Looks like The Denbe Hotel is available, and so is Mount Vernon.
Oh, wow. You are a lifesaver.
-The Denbe is great.
-Denbe will work.
Strike that. The Denbe Hotel was just booked.
Mount Vernon's all we got.
Book it, before someone else does.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
And let me say what an honour it is to be here
and add my happy birthday to you, Mr President.
# I'm getting out of this high-rise penthouse suite
# Where we pretend life's rosy and sweet... #
Good evening, sir.
Are you aware that you are in a restricted area?
Yeah, but this is where the fish are, son.
That may be, but I'm gonna need to have you move upriver.
Are you aware that according to article one, section 25
of the Maryland Constitution,
I'm allowed to fish in public water?
Are you aware, sir, that I have the right to detain you
for the next 48 hours without cause?
I am going to go back where I came from
just as fast as possible.
Maybe one day I'll wear this thing to a party
I was actually invited to.
# Is it still over? Are we still through?
# Since my phone still ain't ringing
# I assume it still ain't you... #
20:00 time check. Station 11.
MAN: All clear. Perimeter's secured.
You didn't happen to see kind of a cute brunette
wandering around here?
Went to get her a drink and she disappeared.
I've got no game tonight!
Good evening, Your Excellency.
Prime Minister, it's a delight to have you back in the States.
Spread the word that campaign contribution limits
are not enforced on the president's birth...
Happy birthday, Mr President.
-Oh, thank you.
The Templar treasure?
Oh, right, Ben Gates, yeah.
We won't keep you, Mr President.
Thanks so much. Always a pleasure.
I can't tell you what a thrill it is
for me to be invited here tonight, sir.
Yeah, you must have the Secret Service hopping about now.
Considering your newly-discovered lineage.
Oh, yeah. Oh, that.
I beg your pardon, sir,
but I know what a huge admirer you are of George Washington.
I thought you might want to take a look at this.
Have a look at that.
This is a map of Mount Vernon
drawn by George Washington himself.
Mr. President, that is exactly what it is.
I was an architectural history major at Yale.
-I did not know that.
It belonged to my great-uncle.
He got it from the granddaughter of a slave named Charlotte...
Happy birthday, Mr President.
Oh, Frank, always a pleasure to see you.
Thank you so much.
..Charlotte, who lived here and worked here at Mount Vernon.
And we're standing right here, sir.
This line is an underground tunnel,
an escape route that was never found.
I wonder...I wonder if it's still there.
Only one way to find out, sir.
Well, maybe we should take a look.
Are we allowed to do that?
No, I mean, I know you're allowed to do that.
You're the president. Can I come with you?
-You guys are just everywhere!
Give my friend your flashlight, would you, please?
Well, according to this map, it should be...
It's one...two. In here.
Yeah, should be in here.
You know, Craig, I appreciate you're doing your job,
but I have no enemies down here,
in the cellar.
In this tiny little room.
I'll just wait here, then.
That's the mark of George Washington.
Only it's slightly different.
These axes, the angle's off.
For it to correspond with the ones on the map,
it should form a perfect V.
OK, what else?
We're all right. Don't worry.
We have a breach in zone 9! There's...
Inform Fairfax, Sectac channel one!
Perimeter detail, lock down all exits!
Gates, what are you doing?
I'm sorry, Mr President.
I need to ask you a question,
which I know you can't answer unless we're alone.
Two coming in!
I want a sledgehammer, I want a crowbar, I want a jackhammer, now!
Tom, alert the vice-president.
Mr. President, sometime between 1880,
when the resolute desk was placed in the Oval Office,
and now, one of our presidents
found a secret compartment in the desk.
Hidden inside was a plank
with Native American writing on it.
A treasure map to Cibola, the legendary City of Gold, sir.
You did all this just to ask me about a treasure map?
That map is a possible key to proving Thomas Gates' innocence.
Now, I know for a fact
that the plank is no longer in the resolute desk...
You've been in my desk, too?!
..but I believe the whereabouts of that plank is now hidden
in the President's Book, sir.
The book known only to our presidents.
It contains all of our nation's secrets.
That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.
I saw the seal in the desk, sir.
I know the map exists.
And you're not going to tell me how to get out of here
unless you get what you want.
The way out is that direction, and I'll show you.
You don't negotiate very well, do you?
Where are my sledgehammers?!
I don't get you, Gates.
You do all this, you're willing to go to prison,
just to clear your ancestor's name.
The way out is just down those stairs.
Everything I am is because of my ancestors, sir.
Thomas Gates gave his last full measure of devotion
to his country to stop the KGC.
When someone dies for their country,
I believe they should be honoured.
"Last full measure of devotion".
Lincoln is my favourite president, sir.
He's my favourite, too.
Sir, I know the book exists, and my question is,
will you agree to let me see it?
Even if something like that really did exist,
why do you think I would actually just give it to you?
Because it will probably lead us to the discovery
of the greatest Native American treasure of all time.
A huge piece of culture lost.
You can give that history back to its descendants.
And because you're the President of the United States, sir,
whether by innate character
or the oath you took to defend the constitution
or the weight of history that falls upon you,
I believe you to be an honourable man, sir.
Gates, people don't believe that stuff anymore.
They want to believe it.
Nearest highway is that direction.
You'll understand if we part ways here.
The following conversation never happened.
The book exists.
Where is it?
Well, where else do you keep a book?
In the Library of Congress.
Thank you, sir.
You'll also need to know 3-7-9-4.
200 people know you held me against my will.
I can't tell them why.
Unless you find what you're looking for,
you'll be charged with kidnapping the president.
You know what that means.
Yes, sir. Very much so, sir.
Gates, I want you to do something for me.
It would be a privilege, sir.
Just have a look at that.
MOBILE PHONE DIALLING TONE
Riley, meet me at the Library of Congress in 20 minutes.
The president's been what?!
Where do we start?
XY is the book classification code.
Stands for special collections,
which means very, very special books.
Where are they?
This way. We'll have to sneak in.
This will be good.
Here we go. XA...XM...
Look. Do you have a code?
What did the president say the number was?
It's not there.
Maybe someone checked it out.
Why would he send us here if there's no book?
He probably wanted us to get caught.
What is that?
It's a 6-dial combination lock.
The location is the combination.
The location is the combination.
I was right.
Well done, Mr Poole.
Eagle and the scroll!
Area 51. There...
It's the Kennedy assassination.
Shh! We don't have time.
Yeah, it's true. (CLEARS THROAT)
"April 1865. Queen Victoria sends Pike two coded missives.
"The first is received. Contains information regarding
"New World treasure.
"The City of Gold."
Wait, the Queen wanted to help the Confederacy?
A divided America would have been weaker.
And they needed cotton from the South.
"The second missive was thought to contain a playfair cipher
"suggesting contact with Laboulaye,
"who will hide clues before his death."
That's the cipher that was written into the Booth diary page
that Thomas tried to burn.
-The one we have.
"1880. Resolute desk arrives in Washington,
"sent by Queen to President Hayes."
Look at that.
The missing plank from the White House.
Here's the final entry by President Coolidge.
"1924. I found a plank in secret desk compartment.
"Plank photographed and then destroyed.
"Borglum commissioned to destroy landmarks
"in sacred Black Hills mountains."
He carved Mount Rushmore
to erase the map's landmarks
in order to protect the City of Gold.
Mount Rushmore was a cover-up.
What is it?
Oh, there's my tax dollars at work,
coming to arrest me.
They're not coming for you, Riley, they're coming for me.
-Go to the car.
Go! I'll meet up with you.
HELICOPTER BLADES WHIR
So Gates abducts the president, lets him go,
And then heads to the Library of Congress?
Maybe he wants to check out a book.
You two on the left. Let's go!
SHOUTING AND CHATTER
POLICE RADIO CHATTER
MAN ON RADIO: All agents, all agents...
MOBILE PHONE DIALLING TONE
Ben, you got to get out of there.
I had to move the car.
There's FBI, Secret Service all over the place.
Calm down. I sent a picture of the plank to your cellphone.
You can do that?
Yes, I can do that. Did you get it?
I got it.
Take it to mom for translation.
Did he say his mom could translate the plank?
Find out who she is.
POLICE RADIO CHATTER
How are we going to find Ben?
I don't know.
Hold it! Who are you?
-We work here.
Here. We were told to evacuate.
I don't know what's going on in there.
My car is parked...
One second I'm reading
-a special section for...
-..then we're rushed out...
-OK, thank you.
Be ready to show your IDs when you exit the premises.
Best of luck.
Have a good night.
Man: Hey, go to the northeast sectors.
Start the car.
Put it in gear.
What's the problem?
It's clear. Let's go!
We're going to jail.
I want to run a check...
Get in! Hang on!
It's a Mercedes SUV...
He's in! Go!
OK, we can do this.
Close the barricade! Close the barricade! Lock it down!
Lock it down!
-Drive, drive, drive!
I don't think so!
Whoa, whoa, whoa!
POLICEMAN: Go, go, go, go, go!
POLICEMAN: Let's go! Let's go!
That did not turn out the way it was supposed to.
How'd they find us so quick?
I'll tell you how.
The President is a tattletale.
Sadusky. He was there.
And he knows more about the book
than I originally thought.
How'd the president feel about being kidnapped?
He was OK.
No, this office is closed. I'm sorry.
Well, I do apologise for the lateness of the hour.
My name is Mitch Wilkinson.
I've got something I want you to take a look at.
Just take a minute.
You're a treasure hunter.
I'm just a man trying to make his mark on history.
Can you help me?
No, I don't know that language.
I'm sorry. I can't help you.
Oh, excuse me.
Your ex-husband's on his way up.
He wants the translation.
Tell him anything but the truth.
Get rid of him.
His life depends on it.
I know I'm the last person that you want to see,
and I'm not comfortable either,
but, uh, we need you to translate something.
Ben sent me. He needs your help.
Yes, of course.
If it's for Ben, of course.
What is it?
It's in the cellphone.
-I'm not sure how to...
-Oh, give it to me.
..bring it out.
We know it leads to Mount Rushmore.
"Islands of stone in a sea of grass."
That's what the Lakota used to call the Black Hills
in South Dakota.
"Find where the moon touches the Earth
"And release the hummingbird."
Did it ever occur to you...
I can't believe I'm saying this.
Did it ever occur to you that I did the things I did to impress you?
No, you didn't. You did it because you wanted to,
and I would have done the same thing,
except one of us had to grow up and stay home and look after Ben.
It certainly wasn't going to be you.
Did it ever occur to you that I made sacrifices for us that you never did?
No, of course not.
So just go away.
Don't feel bad. You did good.
Patrick believed every word you said. And besides,
your son would have never found the treasure anyway.
You don't know Benjamin.
Perhaps not. But then again,
I have this.
A letter from Queen Victoria
to the Confederate general Albert Pike?
Seems the dear old Queen was partial
to the Confederate cause.
This has been handed down by my family for 140 years.
It contains a vital piece of information.
The final clue, as it were.
Of course, this piece of information is worthless
without your translation of the planks.
It's ironic, isn't it?
This all began with the burning of pages,
And now it ends with the burning of this...
..the final clue.
Making me the only one
who can find Cibola.
Get your coat.
Her translation on the second half of the plank says
we need to find an island of stone.
Benjamin would have found it by now.
I don't think so.
IMITATES A BIRD CALL
How do I get to, um, this...
-Wait for me!
No way! You're too slow!
I knew you'd figure out the message I gave your father!
The hummingbird was good.
Let her go, Mitch.
We're the ones with the firepower,
and you're giving me orders?
I kidnapped the president.
The FBI is on their way here right now to arrest me,
and I'm sure they'll love to meet you, too.
They'll find us both and arrest us both.
And that path doesn't lead to the City of Gold, does it?
Ben, this man has information you need. He's got a letter.
Sent from Queen Victoria to General Albert Pike.
How do you know that?
I read about it, in a book.
I'm afraid he's burned it.
You've had me do all the work so far. Why stop now?
You tell me what you know,
I'll find the City of Gold,
prove Thomas Gates' innocence, you can have all the treasure.
-I'm going with you.
But if anyone's gonna be credited
for discovering the City of Gold, it's going to be me.
But your partners stay here,
and all the guns.
What makes you think I'd agree to that?
Because you need that treasure.
Believe me, I know.
All right, Gates, we'll do it your way.
But believe me,
I don't need the guns.
Which president? THE president?
I thought it best not to tell you.
ABIGAIL: I still don't see anything
that looks like a noble bird.
All right, Mitch. Let's have it.
What did the letter say?
What's the clue from Queen Victoria's letter?
"The entrance shall only be revealed
"under a cloudless rain."
Figure that one out.
So...we come back when it's raining?
could simply mean the sun.
You need a sunny day... and rain.
We need water.
Everybody, the water makes the rocks darker.
-Use the water.
What's this in my hand? Are you blind?
Good, good, good.
This is ridiculous.
Are we going to water the whole thing?
Oh! That's it. I found it!
Over here! Found it!
Look at this!
It's an eagle.
Look at that. There it is.
It's an eagle.
"The noble bird...
"..will give you passage."
Uh-huh. Now what?
I think we need to join hands,
and in a noble manner,
pass over the bird.
PATRICK: Maybe it indicates direction...
RILEY: Then, somehow, that bird
will rise from the rock...
PATRICK: You've seen every glyph from ancient rocks(!)
-EMILY: One doesn't need to...
You can stand around here guessing for a while,
or I can give you the next clue.
"Surrender your hand to the heart of the warrior."
And the eagle is a symbol of the warrior.
Ben, no. Wait, wait! No.
That's probably a horrible trap. Tell him!
It's a horrible trap.
It would be a pity to come this far
and not even try, now, wouldn't it?
I'll do it, Ben.
Surrender your hand...
I am sorry.
I-I couldn't resist.
feels like a latch.
(CRACKING AND RUMBLING)
Look at this.
All right, good.
Ben, look at this!
Oh, that's beautiful!
ABIGAIL: Ben, what is that?
It appears to be a counterweight to hold the door open.
RILEY: What is that sound?
SNAPPING Oh! Ohh! Oh!
Patrick, what have you done?
It's some kind of a bolt. I didn't do it.
Only one way out of here now.
(EMILY SIGHS) Oh!
Oh, I've never seen so many relics.
So beautifully preserved.
Looks like we're going to be moving some rocks, people.
There's a tunnel back in through here.
Guys, look at this.
It's a little golden man.
Look. It's got like a tiny little torso.
Look at that.
It looks like...
Move back! Move back! All of you! Other side!
Back up! Back up!
Riley, move forward! Move forward!
No, back up, back up.
What do you want me to do?!
We have to balance our weight
to even this thing out.
-We'll find 'em.
-What are we gonna do?
I'll figure something out.
I'll tell you what we're going to do...
No, no, no, I'll tell you what we're going to do.
No, you don't... I'll tell you!
No, I'll tell you!
Look, there's that passageway. Look,
You go down there, you pull those stones out,
because that's gotta lead somewhere.
That...is a good idea.
MITCH: There's nothing.
Just a big old black hole.
ABIGAIL: Ben, look at this!
There's a ladder.
I mean, what's left of a ladder.
Toss me the light.
Move slowly to that corner.
No! Wait. Just...
as I move to this corner.
One step at a time. Good.
If we can raise this corner,
I think I'll reach it.
-Stop! Red light!
-You're not helping!
I can get up there just as easy as you.
It's three against one here.
I ain't going last, and if I'm not going last,
I might as well go first.
What's it gonna be?
We'll do this your way.
CREAKING AND RUMBLING
The rest of us, on my count of three,
all move together,
one step at a time.
Mitch, what do you see?
Is there a way out?
RILEY: What's up there, Mitch?
Are you all right?
Just promise me he's gonna be OK.
I've been doing the math here, and...
We're gonna have to leave one person behind.
Just promise you'll come back for me.
I can do the math, too.
That makes you next.
I'll go last.
IMITATES BEN: "No, we'll figure something else out, Riley."
IMITATES ABIGAIL: "No, we need you up there. Please, Riley."
I'm just kidding. Go.
RUMBLING AND CREAKING
-What are you doing?
I can't get it!
Just go! Go now!
All right, ready?
Riley! Hang on!
Mitch, the idol. OK, Ben.
We found a gold idol here!
We can roll it over to offset your weight!
Then roll it!
Here it comes!
Come on, Ben!
Give me your hand!
Why couldn't a girl see me do that?
You all right?
You're OK. You're OK. You're OK.
What is this?
Oh! Oh! Oh!
Put your light over there.
What are you doing?
I can't see anything!
Is this it?
It's a dead end!
There's no way out!
We have to turn back!
Patrick, this is crazy.
Oh! I got it!
I got you! I got you! I got you!
There's no "forward"!
It's not forward, it's down!
All this water has to go out somewhere,
Otherwise it'd be filled up.
Help me turn this wheel!
The water's going down.
Here it is. Em.
We found it!
Thomas was right!
No, you were right!
I'm sorry I smeared your great-great-granddaddy's good name.
It seemed like the only way to get you in on the hunt.
But this was a chance for the Wilkinson family to make its mark on history.
To find the City of Gold,
to be remembered.
GURGLING AND BUBBLING
What happened to you? Your father was worried sick about you.
She was frantic.
She was FRANTIC.
Dad, coming through, did you happen to see...
OK, stop it. Coming through,
did you happen to see any branches
that could lead out of here?
No, it's all blocked. You can't even
get back to the big round stone door.
Where's your mother going?
Have a look at this. Look.
This is going to unlock the Olmec language.
It's gonna give us incredible insight into
pre-Columbian history! Oh! (LAUGHS)
Ben, Ben! Look at this! Look!
That's where they slit the throat, cut the heart out.
What was that?
Aah! Ohh! Ah!
I tried to find a way out.
All those portals are blocked off!
I'm telling you, all this water goes out somewhere!
We'll find it.
Ben, there's a current!
There's got to be a central drain!
It's under us, right here!
RILEY: Let's go! Get in there!
The water's rising too fast!
Let's get that door open so we don't all drown!
PATRICK: Ben, it slopes down! It's a drainage tunnel.
But it fills with water when you open the door!
We need to find something to stick under it to keep it open!
No, if it's open, this tunnel will stay flooded.
We've got to get to the other side and close the door!
RILEY: Patrick, Emily, go!
Mitch, we got to be on the other side of that door!
Nobody leaves unless I say so.
That door is not gonna stay open by itself.
We both know what has to happen here, Ben.
One of us keeps the door open and stays behind.
I vote Mitch.
This isn't a democracy.
Stop! I'll stay! I'm staying. Look.
Look! See? I'm here. I'm right here!
All right, I'll tell everybody
how this is going to go.
You and me are going to open that door.
Anybody tries to leave before me, I drop the door,
we start this all over again!
But you try any funny business,
I guarantee you people are going to get hurt!
I won't! You have MY word.
Just let her go.
Ben, no, we're not leaving without you!
You make my parents leave.
You make my parents leave.
-Let's go, please!
-I'm not leaving him!
Patrick, Emily, he's trying to save our lives.
Please, come on!
The current's too strong!
It's all yours!
Hold your breath!
We got to get Ben out of there!
If I'm stuck in the door, it stays open,
both rooms fill up and we all drown!
Open the door! I'll get you out!
The current's too strong!
I open the door, you'll be washed down!
I'll get you out!
I found the City of Gold!
I found it!
And no-one will ever know?
We can figure this out!
We can all get out!
It's not a puzzle!
No more puzzles, Ben!
We're all going to die, or it could just be me!
Tell them I found it!
We haven't officially met.
EMILY: Oh, hi.
It's for you.
I have my proof.
We were just talking about you.
Ready to turn yourself in?
We found the City of Gold.
It doesn't matter. You still committed a federal crime.
Craig, give us a minute.
Sir, for your information,
this is the man who kidnapped you.
Well, as I recall, we were exploring a hidden tunnel
and a door closed accidentally
and this man saved my life.
For the record, after centuries of exploration,
on this day,
you have brought honour
to your country and your family.
You've done this country a great service.
I thank you.
I thought you might want to take a look at tomorrow's headlines.
Thank you, sir.
All of you, along with Emily and Patrick Gates,
will get credit for this discovery.
And Mitch Wilkinson, sir.
Is that right?
It's true, sir.
Ben, I am curious about that favour I asked you.
Any report regarding what's on page 47?
I believe I can help with that, sir.
So it's good.
What's on page 47?
Are you talking about the book?
EMILY: Please, please, be very careful with that.
Is that distilled water you're using?
-Are you sure?
Have you catalogued all of this?
Excuse me. Excuse me, sir.
Are you cataloguing this?
You should've been there when we picked out our first couch.
Hey, you're that guy, the treasure hunter guy, right?
No, actually, the guy you're thinking of is somewhere over there.
No. You're him. Riley Poole.
I recognise you from your book.
Will you sign it?
So, um, the tea tables...
Yes, I'm going to have the movers bring them to you next week.
Actually, I was going to say you could keep them.
And maybe you could...
come and move back in with me.
No. You used the word "so".
So when you say "so", it means you're angry.
Sometimes. And then sometimes it doesn't.
It's sort of like a puzzle.
And you're so good at puzzles.
I'm sure you'll figure it out.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
ENGINE STARTS, REVS
