The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (2007)
Will Stanton: I'm supposed to save the world? Okay, I can't even figure out how to talk to a girl!
Merriman Lyon: Don't let a girl distract you. You got work to do.

Merriman Lyon: You have powers, Will. You'll be able to command light or fire, move objects, summon great strength and, of course, step through time.
Will Stanton: Well, can I fly?
Merriman Lyon: What?
Will Stanton: You know - shwooom - fly.
Miss Greythorne: No. No I don't think you can.

Will Stanton: What if I can't do this?
Merriman Lyon: Trust that you can. Even the smallest light shines in the darkness.

Will Stanton: It's so... and ya know, and I'm like... this whole thing's just... ARRR, you know!
Merriman Lyon: Is that it?

Merriman Lyon: Good afternoon Stantons. Miss Greythorne wishes to extend an invitation to the whole family to attend a small Christmas Eve party at the manor. Mince pies, mulled wine. Can we count on you?
Gwen Stanton: Yes.
Merriman Lyon: What about you, Will?
Will Stanton: Oh, yes, Mr. Lyon. We'll be... I'll be there.
Merriman Lyon: It's Merriman, please. Look forward to your company.
Will Stanton: We'll be there.

The Rider: Why do you run, boy?
Will Stanton: Who are you? What do you want?
The Rider: The Sign.
Will Stanton: I don't know what you're talking about.
The Rider: Are you frightened of me? You should be, Will. I'm very angry. All this time it was you. Give me the Sign.
Will Stanton: What Sign?
The Rider: Give it me now!
Will Stanton: I don't know what you're talking about.
The Rider: You've escaped me once before. A mistake I won't repeat. Now, give me the Sign.
Dawson: Leave him be.
Merriman Lyon: Leave the boy alone, Rider. You can't fight us all. You're not strong enough.
The Rider: Not yet, but I will be. My power rises now. Five days are all I need, then you and all your kind will be destroyed. Merry Christmas, Will.
Merriman Lyon: Walk with us, Will.
Will Stanton: Where?
Merriman Lyon: Through time.

Will Stanton: Who are you?
Merriman Lyon: We're the old ones. Well to tell the truth, we're neither young nor old, being outside time. You're the last of us to be born. You are the Sign Seeker.
Will Stanton: Everybody keeps talking about these Signs. Sorry. Honestly, I don't know what that is.
Miss Greythorne: Will, you are part of something that has been waiting for you all your life. We, the old ones, we serve the Light. The Rider, he serves the Dark. The Dark is rising, Will. It is you who must restore the power of the Light.

Merriman Lyon: [to Will] You are the seventh son of a seventh son, Will Stanton. You step through time. One by one, the Signs will call to you. You will gather them and gain the power of the Light. You are the Seeker.

Merriman Lyon: Will, where's the sign?
Will Stanton: I'm not sure.
Merriman Lyon: Concentrate
Will Stanton: I'm trying.

Merriman Lyon: Will, use your powers.
Will Stanton: My powers? Right. My powers. Light! Awesome!

Merriman Lyon: Well, well, what do we have here, huh? You sense a Sign? Is that what we're doing here huh? Seeker?
Will Stanton: Max, you're getting weird. Dude, this isn't really you.
Merriman Lyon: Oh, really? It isn't? Is this real enough for you?

Will Stanton: Even if I find the fifth sign, I have no idea how to find the sixth.
Merriman Lyon: When I first saw you I thought, I thought, "No, a boy, not a warrior". I was wrong. You've come a long way, both as The Seeker and as Will Stanton. I believe in you, Will. You'll find what you need.

Merriman Lyon: Fate brought you here. We only took care of the... details.

Merriman Lyon: Will! I warned you!
Will Stanton: Gwen, go back home and don't tell anybody about this. Ok? Go. Just go home.
[Walks up to Merriman]
Merriman Lyon: You've exhausted your powers! You could've been killed!
Will Stanton: Well, I got the Sign, didn't I? On my own! I didn't see any of you helping out, Ok?
Merriman Lyon: You were selfish and irresponsible. Every day, the Dark is tightening its grip. Only you stand in its way.
Will Stanton: Yeah. You keep telling me that.
Merriman Lyon: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Stop, stop, stop. I'm sorry. I-If you want to express your feelings, I'll stand here and I'll listen.

Will Stanton: Tom?
The Rider: Yes. Poor little Tom. The lone twin. My prisoner these last fourteen years. Imagine how he misses his dear twin brother.
Merriman Lyon: Resist him, Will! You are Will Stanton! You are the Seeker!
The Rider: Give them to me.
Will Stanton: No!
The Rider: Then your time is at an end.

Will Stanton: It's over, right?
Merriman Lyon: Never over, but today is a good day.

Merriman Lyon: Will, tomorrow is the final day.
Will Stanton: I know, but even if I find the fifth sign, I have no idea how to find the sixth.

Merriman Lyon: When I first saw you, I thought, "No. Only a boy, not a warrior". I was wrong. You've come a long way both as the Seeker and as Will Stanton. I believe in you, Will. You'll find what you'll need. Now, where are we strongest?
Will Stanton: The Great Hall.
Merriman Lyon: When the Dark reaches it's peak, meet us there.
Will Stanton: I can't leave my family behind.
Merriman Lyon: The only way to help your family is to fight the Dark. It's our only hope.
