Atlantis: The Lost Empire is a 2001 film that follows the adventure Milo Thatch, an "expert in gibberish", experiences while trying to prove his grandfather's theory that Atlantis exists. He feels his dream is hopeless until a wealthy benefactor gives him the means to go on an expedition, along with an unusual team of explorers who may have their own interests in mind. Together, they will travel beneath the ocean's depths to discover a lost civilization... and maybe something more.

Directed by Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise. Written by Tab Murphy

Milo Thatch[edit]

  • [Talking to a group of masks in his boiler room, pretending the masks are real people] Good afternoon, gentlemen. First off, I'd like to thank this board for taking the time to hear my proposal. Now, we've all heard of the legend of Atlantis, a continent somewhere in the mid-Atlantic that was home to an advanced civilization, possessing technology far beyond our own, that, according to our friend, Plato, here, was suddenly struck by some cataclysmic event that sank it beneath the sea. Now, some of you may ask, why Atlantis? It's just a myth, isn't it? Pure fantasy? Well, that is where you'd be wrong. 10,000 years before the Egyptians built the pyramids, Atlantis had electricity, advanced medicine, even the power of flight. Impossible, you say? Well, no, no, not for them. Numerous ancient cultures all over the globe agree that Atlantis possessed a power source of some kind, more powerful than steam, than, than coal. More powerful than our modern internal combustion engines. Gentlemen, I propose that we find Atlantis, find that power source, and bring it back to the surface. Now, this is a page from an illuminated text that describes a book called the Shepherd's Journal, said to have been a first-hand account of Atlantis and its exact whereabouts. Now, based on a centuries-old translation of a Norse text, historians have believed the Journal resides in Ireland. But after comparing the text to the runes on this Viking shield, I found that one of the letters have been mistranslated. So, by changing this letter and inserting the correct one, we find that the Shepherd's Journal, the key to Atlantis, lies not in Ireland, gentlemen, but in Iceland. [Pause] Pause for effect. Gentlemen, I'll take your questions now.
  • [They are getting chased by the Leviathan; increasingly panicked] It's only a grease trap, it's just like a sink! It's only a grease trap, it's just like a sink!!!
  • [To Rourke] Well, I don't know, why don't you translate, and I'll wave the gun around?!
  • [To the guys who are preparing to leave with the heart] So...I guess this is how it ends, huh? Fine, you win. You're wiping out an entire civilization, but hey... [Coldly] You'll be rich. [To Audrey] Congratulations, Audrey, looks like you and your dad can probably start that second garage after all. [To Vinny] And Vinny, you can to start a whole chain of flower shops. I'm sure your family's gonna be very proud. [To everyone else] But that's what it's all about, right? [Angrily] Money.
  • [After seeing the Leviathan's eye] Jiminy Christmas! IT'S A MACHINE!!!
  • [plays with a glowing fly] Heh heh! These guys are kinda cute when they're not, you know, formed into a fiery column of death.
  • [after being seasick] Carrots? Why is it always carrots? I didn't even eat carrots!
  • [after Kida asks him if he swims] Oh, I swim pretty girl- Pretty good! Good, swim good, pretty good. I swim pretty good.

Princess 'Kida' Kidagakash[edit]

  • (To Milo) You are a scholar, are you not? Judging from your diminished physique and large forehead, you can be suited for nothing else!
  • We are not thriving. True, our people live, but our culture is dying. We are like a stone the ocean beats against. With each year a little more of us is worn away.
  • (Taking off her skirt to reveal a bikini bottom) You do swim, do you not?

Preston B. Whitmore[edit]

  • Your grandad had a saying: "Our lives are measured by the gifts we leave our children." This journal is his gift to you. Atlantis is waiting.
  • Your grandfather was always bending my ear with stories about that book. I didn't buy it for a minute! So finally I got fed up and made a bet with the old coot. I said, "Thatch, if you ever actually find that so-called journal, not only will I finance the expedition, but I'll kiss you full on the mouth!" [Shows Milo a photo with him and Milo's grandfather spitting after they've kissed each other] Imagine my embarrassment when he found the darn thing.
  • Your grandfather was a great man, Milo. You probably don't realize how great. Those buffoons at the museum...dragged him down, made a laughing stock of him. He died a broken man. If I could bring back just one shred of proof...that'd be enough for me.

Helga Katrina Sinclair[edit]

  • [asked how she got in a locked apartment] I came down the chimney, ho ho ho.
  • [about Milo] Cartographer, linguist, plumber...hard to believe he's still single.
  • Move it, people, move! Sometime today would be nice!
  • There weren't supposed to be people down here. This changes everything.
  • That was an order, not a suggestion. Let's move!
  • [To Rourke, who betrayed her to get the balloon to rise; Enraged] You said we were in this TOGETHER!! [Kicks Rourke twice] YOU PROMISED ME A PERCENTAGE!!
  • [last words, quoting Rourke] Nothing personal. [Shoots flare gun at balloon]

Commander Lyle Tiberius Rourke[edit]

  • [The Leviathan attacks the submarine] Tell Cookie to melt the butter and break out the bibs. I want this lobster served up on a silver platter!
  • Seven hours ago, we started this expedition with two hundred of the finest men and women I've ever known. We're all that's left. I won't sugar-coat it, gentlemen - we've got a crisis on our hands. But we've been up this particular creek before and we've always come through, paddle or no paddle. I see no reason to change that policy now. From here on in, everyone pulls double-duty. Everyone drives, everyone works. Looks like all our chances rest with you, Mister Thatch. You and that little book.
  • Academics...you never want to get your hands dirty. Think about it: if you gave back every stolen artifact from a museum, you'd be left with an empty building. We're just providing a necessary service to the archaeological community.
  • You're an idealist, just like your grandfather. Do yourself a favor, Milo; don't be like him. For once, do the smart thing.
  • [to Milo, about to leave him in a dying Atlantis, just after punching Milo] Think of it this way, son. You were the one who discovered Atlantis, and now you're part of the exhibit!
  • I love it when I win.
  • [After throwing Helga overboard] Nothing personal!
  • [to Milo] Well, I have to hand it to you. You're a bigger pain in the neck than I would have ever thought possible! I consider myself an even-tempered man; it takes a lot to get under my skin. But congratulations - you just won the solid gold kewpie doll!
  • [last words] Tired, Mr. Thatch?! Ah, that's a darn shame...'cause I'm just getting warmed up!

Dr. Joshua Strongbear Sweet[edit]

  • [after Milo asks about Mole] Trust me on this, you don't wanna know. Audrey, don't tell him. You shouldn'a told me, but you did, and now I'm tellin' you, you don't wanna know.
  • I got a sheepskin from Howard U and a bearskin from Old Iron Cloud.
  • [To Milo] Uh oh. Sat in the dirt, didn't you? [To Mole] Moliere, what have I told you about playing nice with other kids?! Get back! I've got soap, and I'm not afraid to use it. Back, foul creature! Back to the pit from whence you came!
  • I hate fishing. I hate fish. Hate the taste, hate the smell, hate all them little bones.
  • [They eventually see Atlantis and are awestruck by it] Milo, I got to hand it to you, you really came through. [they are suddenly ambushed by Kida's hunting party] Uh, I take that back!
  • [To Rourke, who just punched King Kashekim senseless] Rourke, this was NOT a part of the plan!

Vincenzo Santorini[edit]

  • Hey, junior. If you're looking for the pony rides, they're back there.
  • [Upon being asked what he was bringing aboard] Oh, eh...Gunpowder, nitroglycerin, notepads, fuses, wicks, glue, and paperclips. Big ones. You know, just, uh, office supplies.
  • [About glowing fire fly hive] That thing is going to keep me up all night, I know it...
  • [About the Leviathan] With something like that, I would white wine, I think.
  • Hey, look, I made a bridge. And only took me like, what, ten seconds. Eleven, tops.
  • Well, as far as me goes...I just like to blow things up.
  • My family owned a flower shop. We would sell roses, carnations, baby's breath, you name it. One day, I'm making about three dozen corsages for this prom, you know, the one they put on the wrist, and everybody, they come. "Where is it?", "When is it?", "Does it match my dress?" It's a nightmare. Anyway, I guess there was this leak next door of gas or what, BOOM! No more Chinese laundry. Blew me right through the front window. [Lights match] It was like a sign from God. I found myself in that boom.
  • We done a lot of things we're not proud of. [counting off on his fingers] Robbing graves, eh, plundering tombs, double parking. But, nobody got hurt. Well, maybe somebody got hurt, but nobody we knew.

Gaëtan "Mole" Molière[edit]

  • [First line] You...have disturbed...the dirt.
  • You have disturbed the dirt! Dirt from around the globe, spanning the centuries! Ack! What have you done?! England must never merge with France!
  • [on various occasions] I'm so excited.
  • You said there would be digging!
  • [Upon examining dirt from under Milo's fingernails] Ah! There you are! Now tell me your story my little friend...Parchment fiber from the Nile Delta circa 500 BC, lead pencil no. 2, paint flecks of a type used in government buildings, you have a cat, short hair Persian, two years old, third in a litter of seven.

Audrey Rocio Ramirez[edit]

  • [About Milo, who is being awkward and shy while trying to make a presentation about Atlantis] Geeze, I used to take lunch money from guys like this.
  • I took this job when my dad retired...but the funny thing was he always wanted sons, right? One to run his machine shop, and the other to be middle-weight boxing champion! But, he got my sister and me instead. [Milo asks about her sister] She's 24 and 0 with a shot at the title next month...anyway, I'm saving up so my papí and I can open another shop.
  • Two for flinching!

Wilhemina Bertha Packard[edit]

  • [but over the PA system] Attention. Tonight's supper will be baked beans. Musical program to follow. [pause] Who wrote this?
  • [to her friend Margie] So I says to him, "What's wrong with my meatloaf?" and he says to me...oh, hold on a second Margie, I've got another call. Sir, we're approaching coordinates. Hello, Margie? Yes, so anyways, he says to me...
  • [On the PA system] All hands to the launch bay. To whoever took the "L" from the "Motor Pool" sign, ha-ha, we are all very amused.
  • [repeated line] We're all gonna die.
  • Commander, I think you should hear this...Commander...Commander...Commander...Commander...
  • You wanna do my job? Be my guest.

Jebidiah Allardyce "Cookie" Farnsworth[edit]

  • You done stuffed my wagon full t'bustin' with non-essentials! Look at all this! Cinnamon! Oregano! Cilantro?! What in cockadoodle is cilantro?!
  • I got your four basic food groups! [holds up 3 fingers] Beans, bacon, whisky and lard!
  • [serves everyone the same, nondescript slop] For the appetizer, Caesar salad, escargot, and yer Oriental spring rolls.
  • Dang lightning-bugs done bit me on my sit-upon. Somebody's gonna have to suck out this poison. Don't everybody jump up at once.
  • [on seeing Atlantis from afar] Sweet mother of Jefferson Davis!
  • [about the Atlanteans behind their masks] I seen this back in the Dakota. They can smell fear just by lookin' at ya. So keep quiet.
  • [Gives Milo more food] Yer so skinny, if you turned sideways an' stuck out yer tongue, yu'd look like a zipper!
  • Saddle up, partners! Bring jerky and ammo!
  • I ain't so good at speechifyin'...but I want you to have this. It's the bacon grease from the whole trip.

Dialogue[edit]

Milo: I'll have to quit my job.
Preston B. Whitmore: It's done. You resigned this afternoon.
Milo: I did?
Preston B. Whitmore: Yep. Don't like to leave loose ends.
Milo: Oh, my apartment, I'm gonna have to give notice.
Preston B. Whitmore: Taken care of.
Milo: My clothes?
Preston B. Whitmore: Packed.
Milo: My books?
Preston B. Whitmore: In storage.
Milo: My cat?
[Milo's cat appears on his shoulder and meows]
Milo: My gosh.

Milo: Excuse me, you dropped your dy...dy...dynamite! [Nervous laugh] What else have you, uh, got in there?
Vinny: Oh, er...gunpowder, nitroglycerin, notepads, fuses, wicks, glue, and...paper clips - big ones. You know, just, uh, office supplies.

[Milo goes in his cabin and lays on the bed, a pair of telescopic eyes looks at him]
Mole: You...have disturbed...the dirt!
Milo: Uh, pardon me?
Mole: You disturbed the dirt!! [Pulls off blanket, exposing clumps of dirt with little European flags] Dirt from around the globe, spanning the centuries! Ack! What have you done?! England must never merge with France!
Milo: What's it doing in my bed?!
Mole: You ask too many questions! Who are you?! Who sent you?! Speak up!
Milo: Me, I'm, uh--
Mole: Bah! I will know soon enough!
[Grabs Milo's hand]
Milo: Hey, hey, hey! Let go!
Mole: Do not be such a crybaby! Hold still!
[Mole take a tiny dirt sample from Milo's fingernail with tweezers]
Mole: Aha! there you are! Now tell me your story, my little friend...
[Looks at dirt with his magnifying goggles]
Mole: Parchment fibre from the Nile Delta circa 500 B.C., lead pencil No. 2, paint flecks of a type used in government buildings, you have a cat, short hair Persian, two years old, third in a litter of seven. These are all the microscopic fingerprints of the mapmaker... [licks dirt] and linguist!
Milo: Hey, how'd you...
Mole: [throws Milo's bags and jacket at him] This is an outrage! You must leave at once! Out-out-out-out-OUT! [tries to push Milo out of cabin until he runs into Sweet]
Sweet: Uh-oh. Sat in the dirt, didn't you? Molière, now what have I told ya about playing nice with the other kids?! [holds up a bar of soap] Get back! I got soap, and I'm not afraid to use it! [Mole hisses at the soap bar] Back, foul creature! Back into the pit from whence you came!

Sweet: The name's Sweet, Joshua Sweet. Medical officer.
Milo: Yeah. Milo Thatch.
Sweet: Milo Thatch, you're my three o'clock! [reaches into his back and pulls out a saw] Well, no time like the present.
Milo: [stares at the saw] Oh boy!
Sweet: Nice, isn't it? The catalogue says that this little beauty can saw through a femur in 28 seconds. I'm betting I can cut that time in half! [puts the saw away and comes out with a tongue depresser] Now, stick out your tongue and say "Ah"!
Milo: Oh, no really, I-- [Sweet puts toungue depresser in his mouth] Ahhg!
Sweet: So where're you from? [Milo grunts something] Really? I have family up that way! Beautiful country up there! You do any fishing?
Milo: Oh...a little...
Sweet: Me? I hate fishing. I hate fish. Hate the taste, hate the smell, hate all those little bones. [as he speaks he does several things from putting the depresser away to taking Milo's pulse, then finally pulls up two bottles] Here, I'm gonna need you to fill these up.
Milo: [spits out thermometer] With what?!
Packard: [on PA] Would Milo Thatch please report to the bridge?
Milo: Thank you...I mean, nice meeting you. [runs off]
Sweet: [watching Milo run off] Uh-huh, nice meeting you too.

Audrey: Rourke! We took a big hit down here and we're taking on water fast! I don't wanna be around when it hits the boilers!
Rourke: How much time do we have?
Audrey: 20 minutes, if the bulkhead holds.
[Distant explosion]
Audrey: You better make that 5.
Rourke: You heard the lady. Let's move!
Milo: Move? Where? Move where?
Helga: Packard, sound the alarm!
Packard: [on the phone] And he took his suitcase? Marge, honey, I don't think he's coming back!
Helga: PACKARD!
Packard: Gonna have to call you back. [slight pause] No, no, I'll call you.

Vinny: You didn't just drink that, did you?!
Milo: Mm-hmm.
Vinny: That's not good! That's nitroglycerin!
[Milo holds his breath]
Vinny: Don't move, don't breathe, don't do anything. Except pray, maybe...
Mole: [jumps up behind Milo, scaring him] BOOM!
[Vinny and Mole laugh.]

Rourke: Looks like we have a roadblock. [looks to Vinny] Vinny, what do you think?
Vinny: I could unroadblock that if I had about two hundred of these [points to a stick of TNT in his hand]...Problem is I only got about [counts on fingers] ten, plus, you know, [pulls up a small bag] five of my own and a couple of cherry bombs... [pulls out a road flare]...Road flare...Hey, too bad we don't have some nitroglycerin, eh, Milo?
[Milo gives Vinny an angry look while Mole laughs hysterically.]

[Mole's digger breaks down.]
Mole: [coughs] Oh...this stupid! [banging his head against the steering wheel] You! Are! Stupid!
Audrey: I don't understand it. I just tuned this thing up this morning...
[Audrey climbs into vehicle and throws random bolts and pipes out.]
Audrey: [from inside digger] It looks like the boiler's shot. I'm gonna have to pull a spare from one of the trucks.
Milo: Uh, could I just...
Audrey: ¡No toques nada! I'll be right back. [walks away]
[Milo grabs Audrey's wrench and begins turning valves, then hits it. The vehicle starts again.]
Mole: SHE LIVES!
Audrey: Hey, what'd you do?
[Milo starts raving on about how the boiler is like the Smithsonian's.]
Audrey: Yeah, yeah, thank you very much. Shut up.
[Audrey spins around to face Milo, her hand clenched in a fist. Milo flinches.]
Audrey: Two for flinching.
[Audrey punches Milo twice. Mole laughs at him.]

Sweet: Hold on, back up! Are you saying this whole volcano can blow at any time?
Mole: No, no, no, no. That would take an explosive force of great magnitude...
[Everyone looks at Vinny, who is fiddling with a time bomb.]
Vinny: Maybe I should do this later, huh?

[Kida tries to communicate with Milo, going through various languages]
Milo: Parlez vous Francais?
Kida: Oui monseur!
Mole: They speak my language! Pardon mademouselle...
[Mole whispers something to Kida. She gives a disgusted look and punches him.]
Sweet: [Clapping] I like her!
Audrey: About time someone hit him. I'm just sorry it wasn't me.

Helga: (referring to Kida) Someone needs to talk to that girl.
Mole: I will go!
Vinny: Someone with good people skills.
Mole: I will do it!
Sweet: Someone who won't scare her away.
Mole: I volunteer!
Packard: Someone who can speak the language.
Mole: For the good of the mission, I will go!
Rourke: (to Milo, who has not been listening) Good man, Thatch. Thanks for volunteering.
(Mole looks shocked, then cries)
Audrey: (nudging Milo) Go get 'em, tiger.

King Kashekim Nedakh: I know what you seek, and you will not find it here. Your journey has been in vain.
Commander Rourke: But we are peaceful explorers. Men of science.
[The king looks at Rourke's sidearm]
King Kashekim Nedakh: [chuckles grimly] And yet you bring weapons.
Commander Rourke: Our weapons allow us to remove...obstacles we may encounter.
King Kashekim Nedakh: Some obstacles cannot be removed with a mere show of force. Return to your people. You must leave Atlantis, at once.
Commander Rourke: Your Majesty, be reasonable-
Milo Thatch: Sir?
Commander Rourke: Not now, son.
Milo Thatch: Uh, I'm sorry, but we'd better do as he says.
Commander Rourke: May I respectfully request that...we stay one night, sir? That would give us time to rest, resupply, be ready to travel by morning.
King Kashekim Nedakh: Very well. One night. That is all.

King Kashekim Nedakh: Your heart has softened, Kida. A thousand years ago, you would have slain them on sight.
Kida: A thousand years ago, the streets were lit, and our people did not have to scavenge for food at the edge of a crumbling city!
King Kashekim Nedakh: The people are content.
Kida: They do not know any better! We were once a great people, now we live in ruins! The kings of our past would weep if they could see how far we have fallen!
King Kashekim Nedakh: Kida...
Kida: If these outsiders can unlock the secrets of our past, we might be able to save our future.
King Kashekim Nedakh: What they have to teach us, we have already learned.
Kida: Our way of life is dying.
King Kashekim Nedakh: Our way of life is preserved! [more gently] Kida, when you take the throne, you will understand.

Milo: [To himself] Okay, Milo, don't take no for an answer. Look, I have some questions for you and I'm not leaving this city until they're answered. Yeah, that's it, that's good, that's good.
[Turns to talk to Kida, but she is no longer there. She appears behind him and grabs him]
Kida: I have some questions for you and you are not leaving this city until they are answered!
Milo: Yeah, well, I...okay.

[Milo reads the Atlantean text in the underwater mural and rises to the surface with Kida]
Milo: [Softly] It's the Heart of Atlantis.
Kida: What?
Milo: [Louder, excitedly] It's the Heart of Atlantis! That's what the shepherd was talking about! It wasn't a star, it was some kind of a crystal. [Holds up Kida's crystal] Like these! Don't you get it? The power source I've been looking for, the bright light you remember; they're the same thing!
Kida: It cannot be.
Milo: It's what keeping all these things-- You, and all of Atlantis alive!
Kida: Then, where is it now?
Milo: I don't know, I don't know. You'd think something this important would be in the journal, but it-- [Pauses as he realizes] Unless...the missing page.

[Milo is confronted by Rourke and the others, who are holding guns]
Commander Rourke: Oh, you had a nice swim?
Milo: Uh, hey guys. What's going on? What's... What's with all the guns? [Notice that they are staring evilly at him] Guys? [Suddenly realizes; exhales] I'm such an idiot. This is another treasure hunt for you. You're after the crystal!
Commander Rourke: Oh... [Reveals the missing page] You mean this.
Milo: [Stunned] The Heart of Atlantis!
Commander Rourke: Yeah, about that, I would've told you this sooner, but it was strictly on a need-to-know basis, and...Well, now you know. I had to make sure you were one of us. [Raises his hand to Milo] Welcome to the club, son.
Milo: [Backs away in disgust] I'm no mercenary!
[A struggle takes place, which ends with Kida restrained.]
Commander Rourke: Mercenary? I prefer the term "adventure capitalist". Besides, you're the one who brought us here. You're the one who led us to the treasure chest.
Milo: You don't know what you're tampering with, Rourke!
Commander Rourke: What's to know? It's big, it's shiny, it's gonna make us all rich.
Milo: You think it's some kind of a diamond. I thought it was some kind of a battery, but we're both wrong. It's their life-force. That crystal is the only thing keeping these people alive! You take that away, and they'll die!
Commander Rourke: Well, that changes things. Helga, what do you think?
Helga Sinclair: Knowing that, I'd double the price.
Commander Rourke: I was thinking triple.
Milo: Rourke, don't...do this!

[Sweet, Audrey, Vinny, Mole, Cookie and Packard decide to switch to Milo's side]
Commander Rourke: [Outraged] Aw, you can't be serious!
Audrey: This is wrong, and you know it!
Commander Rourke: We are this close to our biggest payday ever, you pick NOW, of all times, to grow a conscience?!
Vinny: We've done a lot of thing's we're not proud of: robbing graves, plundering tombs, double parking, but, nobody got hurt. Well...maybe somebody got hurt, but nobody we knew.
Commander Rourke: Well, if this is the way you want it...fine! [Turns to the car] MORE for me!

King Kashekim Nedakh: [about Kida] She has been chosen. Like her mother before her.
Milo: What?
King Kashekim Nedakh: In times of danger, the crystal would choose a host - one of royal blood - to protect itself and its people. It will accept no other.
Milo: "Choose"? You mean, this thing is alive?
King Kashekim Nedakh: In a way. The crystal thrives on the collective emotions of all who came before us. In return, it provides power. Longevity. Protection. As it grew, it developed a consciousness of its own. [coughs] In my arrogance, I sought to use it as a weapon of war. But its power proved too great to control. It overwhelmed us...and led to our destruction.
Milo: So that's why you hid it beneath the city. To prevent history from repeating itself!
King Kashekim Nedakh: And to prevent Kida from suffering the same fate as my beloved wife.
Milo: What do you mean? What's going to happen to her?
King Kashekim Nedakh: If she remains bonded to the crystal...she could be lost to it forever. The love of my daughter is all I have left. My burden would have become hers when the time was right...but now, it falls to you. [gives Milo his pendant]
Milo: Me?
King Kashekim Nedakh: Return the crystal. Save Atlantis. Save my daughter. [dies]

[After King Kashekim Nedakh dies]
Sweet: So, what's it gonna be?
Milo: Excuse me?
Sweet: I followed you in, and I'll follow you out. It's your decision.
Milo: Oh, my decision? I think we've seen how effective my decisions have been. Let's recap: I lead a band of plundering vandals to the greatest archaeological find in recorded history, thus enabling the kidnap and/or murder of the royal family, not to mention personally delivering the most powerful force known to man into the hands of a mercenary nutcase who's probably gonna sell it to the KAISER! HAVE I LEFT ANYTHING OUT?!
Sweet: Well, you did set the camp on fire and drop us down that big hole.
Milo: Thank you! Thank you very much.
Sweet: Of course, it's been my experience, when you've hit the bottom, the only place left to go is up.
Milo: Huh, who told you that?
Sweet: A fellow by the name of Thaddeus Thatch.

[Said while flying into battle]
Milo: OK, here's the plan. We're gonna come in low and fast and take 'em by surprise.
Audrey: Well, I've got news for you, Milo: Rourke is never surprised, and he's got a lot of guns.
Milo: Great! Well, do you have any suggestions?
Vinny: Yeah! Don't get shot!

[Milo almost gets shot by an airplane]
Milo: Holy smokes! You told me he only had guns!
Audrey: What I said was he's never surprised!

[as Rourke is pushing the balloon with the crystal and Kida attached to it, he notices Thatch's rescue squad]
Milo: THERE THEY ARE!
Rourke: [to his men] We've got company! Light it up!

[Audrey and Sweet are trying to free Kida. Audrey is attempting to cut through a chain with Sweet's medical saw.]
Audrey: I thought you said this thing could cut through a femur in twenty-eight seconds!
Sweet: Less talk, more saw!
