Concealed in those pages is the key to something much, much bigger. A conspiracy that crosses the globe, and a discovery that the world isn't ready to believe."

  • (Nicolas Cage) "You do? Do you know the origin of the expression?"
  • (Justin Bartha) "Does anyone but you?"
  • (Nicolas Cage) "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' name be mud."

  • (Justin Bartha) "Now I know I'll probably regret asking this, but what happened with you and Abigail?"

  • (Nicolas Cage) "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."
  • (Justin Bartha) "Women. Can't live with 'em, especially if they change the alarm codes."
  • (Control Room Guard) "The fire alarm's gone off."
  • (Justin Bartha) "Uh-oh. God save the Queen."
  • (Justin Bartha) "Mitch, we gotta be on the other side of that door."

  • (Jon Voight) "Why would I overreact to that?"
  • (Jon Voight) "The Statue of Liberty. But which one?"
  • (Justin Bartha) "Exactly. Wait is there more than one?"

  • (Nicolas Cage) "No, you used the word "so.""
  • (Diane Kruger) "So?"
  • (Nicolas Cage) "So when you say "so" it means you're angry."
  • (Diane Kruger) "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."
  • (Diane Kruger) "Just because you may know what my answer is going to be, doesn't mean you don't have to ask me."
  • (Diane Kruger) "Okay, I've been doing the math here, and --"
  • (Nicolas Cage) "I know. One of us is going to have to stay behind."
  • (Justin Bartha) "I've been doing the math too -- just promise you'll come back for me."
