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?
The Rider: A thousand years of waiting and what was there to show? Nothing! Nothing but a boy who could not do what was asked of him. Generations of hope and promise, all a waste. You know, I have something here you might recognize. Once before I made you an offer, Will. Now here it is again. Give me the signs and the boy will live.
Will Stanton: I'm not afraid to die. I'm not afraid to die!
The Rider: Who says it's you?
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.
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.
John Stanton: Will, you're a kid. Just enjoy it. Just be happy to you don't have to deal with it. I have work to do.
Will Stanton: You know, Dad, when I was little, you never told me not to be afraid of the dark.
The Rider: [to Will] Don't look so worried. It's not the end of the world - not quite yet.
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: [after his mom leaves, the Rider takes off his glasses; through his teeth and low] Leave me alone!
The Rider: These old fools would have you do work that they can't, but they haven't told you that you'll fail. Now, give me the Signs, Will.
Will Stanton: I never forget those who stand with me. Nor those who stand against.
The Rider: I don't have what you want.
Paul Stanton: Hey man, let's get out of here.
Robin Stanton: School is out.
James Stanton: What's up, little brother? I gotta catch up with the twins.
Gwen Stanton: Hi Will.
Will Stanton: Come on, Gwen. Let's go.
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.
Robin Stanton: Hey man. Lame about Max. Come on in.
Paul Stanton: Glad to have you here.
Robin Stanton: Hey, this will be your designated area.
[points to body outline]
Dawson: So, this is Will Stanton, eh? A pleasure to meet you.
Will Stanton: And you, Sir.
Dawson: Hey, George, look here. It's Will.
Old George: So it be. And with a birthday today as well.
Saleswoman: Can I help you? Hello? Are you going to buy that?
Will Stanton: Um, sorry, it's for my sister.
The Rider: [to Maggie] The boy is more capable than I thought. Return to him, bring me the signs, and you will never age.
Security Guard #2: We've been watching you from the moment you came in.
Security Guard #1: He looks like trouble.
Security Guard #2: Looks like a thief.
Security Guard #1: Wondering hands have deep pockets.
Security Guard #2: Children are always the worst.
Security Guard #1: You won't mind if we search you then? Mm?
Will Stanton: What?
Security Guard #2: Or perhaps you'd rather we call your parents? Let them know you're being investigated for shop lifting which is a criminal offense in this country.
Security Guard #1: That's right.
Security Guard #2: Don't waste our time, Will.
[in distorted voice]
Security Guard #2: Just give us the Sign.
Will Stanton: How do you know my name?
Security Guard #1: Give us the Sign, Will.
Will Stanton: Something is going on with me. It's mixed up.
John Stanton: Will, you're fourteen. These changes are normal. Uh, you talk to your brothers about it.
Robin Stanton: Is your body starting to feel all funny and different?
James Stanton: [to Will] Out of your league, buddy. Watch and learn.
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.
Miss Greythorne: You are special, Will. The seventh son of the seventh son.
Will Stanton: You got it wrong. Sixth, actually. I only have five brothers. I guess you made a mistake. I'm sorry. I'm not the one.
Robin Stanton: Hey, Will. You're back late. Where you been?
Will Stanton: I went for a walk.
Robin Stanton: Why are you all dirty? Hey, man.
Paul Stanton: Hey, where were you man?
Robin Stanton: Tell us where you were.
Will Stanton: Leave me alone!
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.
Gwen Stanton: Will?
Will Stanton: Gwen, what are you doing here?
Gwen Stanton: Are you okay?
Will Stanton: Yeah, I'm fine.
Gwen Stanton: What are you doing?
Will Stanton: Nothing.
Gwen Stanton: What?
Will Stanton: Stay close.
Gwen Stanton: What happened?
Will Stanton: We stepped through time.
Gwen Stanton: What?
Will Stanton: Gwen, go! Gwen! Gwen, get down. Get down. There it is. Shh. Shh. You're okay. It's gonna be okay. I need to get that shield, Gwen. It's the only way we're gonna get home. Trust me. Be quiet. It's okay. Stay here. It's okay.
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.
The Rider: Do you want to ever go home with them again? Give me the Signs and they will live. Give me the Signs, Will.
Will Stanton: No.
Maggie Barnes: Will, come with me. You're not safe here. You need to give me the Signs.
Will Stanton: No, they're my responsibility. I can handle it.
Maggie Barnes: Let me protect them for you.
Will Stanton: I don't think I can do that.
Maggie Barnes: It's me, Will. Maggie. Do you believe what you said? That we're connected?
Will Stanton: Yeah.
Maggie Barnes: I felt it too. You need to give me the Signs before it's too late. You need to trust me. Do you trust me?
Will Stanton: Yeah, I trust you.
Security Guard #1: [to Will] Excuse me, Sir. I wonder if you wouldn't mind coming back with us?
Security Guard #2: Only we think you may have left the store without paying for an item.
Will Stanton: I am Will Stanton, Seventh son of a seventh son, I have read the book, I have walked through time, I have gathered five signs, the sixth could not be found because it was not hidden from me. I am the Sixth sign, and I have restored the power of the light.
Merriman Lyon: Fate brought you here. We only took care of the... details.
Mary Stanton: Can I get you gentlemen something? Coffee or tea?
Dawson: No, we were stopping. Too much to do before the storm sets in.
Mary Stanton: The storm?
Dawson: Yes. Odd weather along the way. Tomorrow would be a bad night. A night's after beyond imagining.
Mary Stanton: Really?
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.
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.
