National Treasure (2004)
Abigail Chase: What led you to assume there's this invisible map?
Ben Gates: We found an engraving on the stem of a 200-year-old pipe.
Riley Poole: Owned by the Free Masons.
Abigail Chase: May I see the pipe?
Ben Gates: We don't actually have it.
Abigail Chase: Did Bigfoot take it?

Ben Gates: I'm in a little trouble.
Patrick Gates: Is she pregnant?
Ben Gates: If she is would you leave the mother of your grandchild standing out in the cold?
Patrick Gates: Come in.
Abigail Chase: [to Riley] I look pregnant?
[He shakes his head]

Abigail Chase: You're treasure hunters, aren't you?
Ben Gates: We're more like treasure protectors.

Ben Gates: Do you trust me?
Abigail Chase: Yes.

Ben Gates: [upset] I just... really thought I was gonna find the treasure.
Patrick Gates: Okay. Then we just keep looking for it.
Abigail Chase: I'm in.

Ben Gates: You all right?
Abigail Chase: No, those - those lunatics...
Ben Gates: You're not hurt, are you?
Abigail Chase: You're *all* lunatics!
Ben Gates: You hungry?
Abigail Chase: What?
Ben Gates: Are you all right?
Riley Poole: Still a little on-edge from being shot at but I'll be fine, thanks for asking.
Abigail Chase: Yeah, well *I'm* not all right! Those men have the Declaration of Independence!
Riley Poole: She *lost* it?
Ben Gates: *They* don't have it.
[He pulls the Declaration out to show her]
Ben Gates: See? Okay? Now could you *please* stop shouting?
Abigail Chase: [She reaches for it but he pulls it away] Give me that!
Ben Gates: You're *still* shouting, and it's really starting to annoy. You would do well, Dr. Chase, to be a little more *civilized* in this instance.
Abigail Chase: If that's the *real* one, what did *they* get?
Ben Gates: A souvenir. I thought it'd be a good idea to have a duplicate, turns out I was right. I actually had to pay for the souvenir *and* the real one, so you owe me $35, plus tax.
Riley Poole: Genius.
Abigail Chase: Who *were* those men?
Ben Gates: Just the guys we *warned* you were going to try to steal the Declaration.
Riley Poole: And *you* didn't believe us!
Ben Gates: We did the only thing we could do to keep it safe.
Abigail Chase: Verdammt! Give me that!
Ben Gates: You know something? You're shouting again.
Riley Poole: Pretty sure she was swearing too.
Ben Gates: Well, we probably deserved *that.*

Riley Poole: Do you actually know who the first person to suggest daylight savings was?
Abigail Chase, Ben Gates: Benjamin Franklin.
[Riley stomps down his foot in disappointment]

Abigail Chase: [Ben Gates is trying to figure out how to get the Silence Dogood letters without letting his dad know he stole the Declaration of Independence] You have the original Silence Dogood letters? Steal those too?
Ben Gates: They're scans of the orginals, quiet please.
Abigail Chase: How did you get scans?
Ben Gates: I know the person who has the originals, now shush.
Abigail Chase: Why do you need them?
Ben Gates: She really can't shut her mouth, can she?
[Offering her the Declaration]
Ben Gates: Look, I will let you hold this if you promise to *shut up*, please!

Abigail Chase: What do you see?
Ben Gates: 2:22.
Abigail Chase: What time is it now?
Clothing Store Clerk: Almost 3.
Abigail Chase: [sighs] We missed it.
Riley Poole: No, we didn't. We didn't miss it because... you don't know this? I know something about history that you don't know.
Ben Gates: I'd be very excited to learn about it, Riley.
Riley Poole: Hold on one second, let me just take in this moment. This is cool. Is this how you feel all the time? Well, except now.
Abigail Chase: Riley!
Riley Poole: All right! What I know is that daylight savings wasn't established until World War I. If it's 3 p.m. now that means that in 1776 it would be 2 p.m.
Ben Gates: Riley, you're a genius.

Abigail Chase: Riley, are you crying?
Riley Poole: Look... Stairs.

Abigail Chase: You can't *seriously* intend to run chemical tests on the Declaration of Independence... in the back of a moving van!
Riley Poole: We have a clean room environment all set up: EDS suits, a particulate air filtration system, the whole shebang.
Abigail Chase: Really?

Ben Gates: I leveled with you one hundred percent.
Abigail Chase: Give me the Declaration, Mr. Brown.
Ben Gates: OK, my name's not Brown. It's Gates. I leveled with you ninety-eight percent.

Butcher Lady: If you're not a steak, you don't belong here.
Abigail Chase: I'm just trying to hide from my ex-husband.
Butcher Lady: [sees Shaw] Who, Baldie?
Abigail Chase: Yes.
Butcher Lady: Honey, stay as long as you like.
Abigail Chase: Huh, thank you.
Butcher Lady: [to Shaw] You want something?
[leaning on the counter panting, while looking around for Abigail]
Butcher Lady: Do you want something?
Shaw: [unnerved] Shut up.
[leaves]
Butcher Lady: [to Abigail] I see why you left him.

Patrick Gates: [to Abigail] And he dragged you two into this nonsense?
Abigail Chase: Literally.
Riley Poole: I volunteered.

Benjamin Franklin Gates: I'm so sorry I dropped you - I had to save the Declaration!
Abigail Chase: No, don't be. I would have done exactly the same to you.
Benjamin Franklin Gates: Really?
Abigail Chase: Yeah.
Riley Poole: I would've dropped you both! Freaks.

Ben Gates: It's invisible.
Abigail Chase: Oh! Right.
Riley Poole: And that's where we lost the Department of Homeland Security.

[last lines]
Abigail Chase: I made something for you.
Ben Gates: You did?
Abigail Chase: M-hm.
Ben Gates: What?
Abigail Chase: A map.
Ben Gates: A map... Where does it lead to?
Abigail Chase: You'll figure it out.

Riley Poole: [examining the back of the Declaration] So if it's in invisible ink, how do we see it?
Patrick Gates: Throw it in the oven.
Abigail Chase, Ben Gates: NO!

Riley Poole: What do you care? You got the girl.
Abigail Chase, Ben Gates: That's true.
[Ben and Abigail kiss]
Riley Poole: Yeah, rub it in.
[He turns and walks away]
Riley Poole: Enjoy your spoils.

Riley Poole: They're like Early American x-ray specs.
Abigail Chase: Benjamin Franklin invented something like these.
Ben Gates: Uh, I think he invented *these*.

Abigail Chase: You know, I really couldn't accept something like that normally, but um... I really want it.

Ben Gates: Meet me at the car. Call me if you have any problems.
Riley Poole: Like if we get caught and killed?
Ben Gates: Yeah - that would be a big problem. Take care of her.
Riley Poole, Abigail Chase: [together] I will.


National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007)
[from trailer]
Abigail Chase: Look!
Ben Gates: It's a cipher...
Riley Poole: Clever!

Ben Gates: All I need is a few minutes with the President.
Abigail Chase: The Secret Service is never gonna leave you alone with the President.
Ben Gates: Well, you never know.

Ben Gates: [in the service elevator, Ben is holding a bouquet of flowers] You're wearing the perfume I got you.
Abigail Chase: So?
Ben Gates: So I think it smells kind of pretty.
Abigail Chase: It's the flowers, Ben.
Ben Gates: [batting his eyelashes] No it's not.

Abigail Chase: Okay, I've been doing the math here, and...
Ben Gates: I know. One of us is going to have to stay behind.
Riley Poole: I've been doing the math too... just promise you'll come back for me.
[in a high pitched voice]
Riley Poole: Riley! No Riley! We won't leave you behind!
[back to his normal voice]
Riley Poole: No, I'm just kidding. Just go.

Ben Gates: [about to break into Buckingham Palace, unbeknownst to Abigail] I appreciate you trying to help, but it's kind of a bad time right now.
Abigail Chase: A bad time?
Ben Gates: It's a bad time.
Abigail Chase: I just flew all the way to England to help you, and...
Ben Gates: You're the one making a scene here.
Abigail Chase: I'm not making a scene!
Riley Poole: [over the mike] Wait, Ben, we *want* to make a scene...
Ben Gates: [screams at the top of his lungs] Well, fine! If that's how you want it, let's have it out right now!
Riley Poole: Ah, so subtle.

Ben Gates: [in security lock-up in Buckingham Palace] So when did you realize it was a fake argument?
Abigail Chase: When did you realize that I was actually arguing during the fake argument?
Ben Gates: Right in the middle there, at the part where I'm always wrong. Which I don't understand, because when I assume I'm right, and it turns out my assumption is correct, how is that wrong?
Abigail Chase: When you make a decision without asking me, and you *happen* to be right, you got lucky.
Ben Gates: [long pause] Well, I get lucky a lot.

US President: [Ben, Riley, Abigail and company have discovered the City of Gold] All of you will get credit for this discovery.
Ben Gates: Thank you.
Abigail Chase: Thank you.
Riley Poole: [nervously] Heh...

Abigail Chase: So, the tea tables?
Ben Gates: Yes, I was going to have the movers bring them to you next week.
Abigail Chase: Actually, I was going to say you could keep them. And maybe you could come and move back in with me?
Ben Gates: No, you used the word "so."
Abigail Chase: So?
Ben Gates: So when you say "so" it means you're angry.
Abigail Chase: 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. So.

Abigail Chase: Just because you may know what my answer is going to be, doesn't mean you don't have to ask me.

Patrick Gates: [after being told the clues] The resolute desk. *The* resolute desk? The President's desk?
Riley Poole: [nervously] The President? Which President? Our President?
Abigail Chase: [sighing] Unfortunately, yes.
Riley Poole: [still nervous] But that means, so we have to... the White House?
Ben Gates: The Oval Office, to be exact.
Patrick Gates: [beat] Why would I overreact to that?

Ben Gates: [reading President's Secret Book] 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."
Abigail Chase: Borglum... Mount Rushmore?
Ben Gates: He carved Mount Rushmore, to erase the map's landmarks, in order to protect the City of Gold.
Riley Poole: [muttering] Mount Rushmore was a cover-up.

Abigail Chase: It's him.
Riley Poole: You have his number on speed dial?
Abigail Chase: Oh, shut...

Abigail Chase: [scoffs] Ah, come on, Riley. That's, that's urban legends.
Riley Poole: Is it Abigail? Is it?
[raises eyebrows]
Abigail Chase: It's just totally...
Riley Poole: Crazy?
Abigail Chase: Yeah!
Riley Poole: Hmmm, 'Cause the last time I checked, we pretty much make our living on "crazy."
Ben Gates: [reading the book] He's got a point.
