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 a respected 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. Edited by Ellen Keneshea. 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!ǃ
  • [To Rourke] I know, why don't you translate, and I'll wave the gun around?!
  • [To the guys who are preparing to leave with the Heart of Atlantis] 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, guess you and your dad will be able to open up that a 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.
  • We're gonna save Atlantis, or we're gonna die trying! Now let's do itǃ

Princess 'Kida' Kidagakash[edit]

  • [imitating Milo] I have some questions for you and you are not leaving this city until they are answered!
  • (To Milo) You are a scholar, are you not? Judging from your diminished physique and large forehead, you can be suited for nothing else!
  • Cookies are sweet, but yours is not. Sweet is kindly, but that is not his name. Audrey is sweet, but she is not your doctor. And the little digging animal called Mole, he is your pet?
  • 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?
  • (In Atlantean) All will be well, Milo Thatch. Be not Afraid.

Preston B. Whitmore[edit]

  • Your grandad had a saying: "Our lives are remembered by the gifts we leave our children." This journal is his gift to you, Milo. Atlantis is waiting. What did you say?
  • 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. 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 go!
  • [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!
  • [falling down] Rourke!
  • [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!
  • 7 hours ago, we started this expedition with 200 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] Look it this way, son. You were man who discovered Atlantis, and now you're part of the exhibit.
  • I love it when I win.
  • We're losing altitude. Lighten the load.
  • [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?! Hyah, 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 one, you don't wanna know. Audrey, don't tell him. You shouldn't 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, now what have I told you about playing nice with other kids? [Mole tries to protest, but Sweet pulls out a bar of soap and shoves it in Mole's face] Get back! I've got soap, and I'm not afraid to use it. [Mole hisses and fleas to the top bunk] Back, foul creature! Back to the pit from whence you came!
  • Me? I hate fishing, I hate fish, hate the taste, hate the smell, and 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 apart 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 the Leviathan] With something like that, I would have white wine, I think.
  • Hey, look, I made a bridge. And only took me like, what, ten seconds. Eleven, tops.
  • [About glowing fire fly hive] That thing is going to keep me up all night, I know it...
  • 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. These are all the microscopic fingerprints of the mapmaker. [licks it twice] And [menacingly] linguist.

Audrey Rocio Ramirez[edit]

  • [About Milo, who is being awkward and shy while trying to make a presentation about Atlantis] Jeez, 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...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...
  • [to her friend Margie] And he took his suitcase? Marge, honey, I don't think he's coming back!
  • [On the PA system] Attention. 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?! [picks up a batch of lettuce] What is this?
  • 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.
  • Danging 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.

The King of Atlantis[edit]

  • [first words] Close your eyes, Kida! Look away!
  • [To Rourke] You presume much to think you are welcome here.
  • Your heart has softened, Kida. A thousand years ago, you would have slain them on sight.
  • [About Kida] She has been chosen. Like her mother, before her.
  • [last words] Return the crystal. Save Atlantis. Save my daughter. [stop breathing and dies]

The Queen of Atlantis[edit]

  • [first words] Kida, come on!
  • [last words] Kida! Just leave it! There's no time! [before she dies]

Others[edit]

  • Squad Leader: Sergeant, Keep those people back!
  • Sergeant: You heard him, step back! [pushes Milo back when he is angry]
  • Mr. James: I swear that young Thatch gets crazy every year! [looks for Milo Thatch]

Dialogue[edit]

"...in a single day and night of misfortune, the island of Atlantis disappeared into the depths of the sea."-- Plato, 360 B.C [text displayed at the beginning of the movie]
[First lines; The movie begins with a large tidal wave]
Atlantean: You fool! You've destroyed us all!
Second Atlantean: The wave is gaining! We have to warn Atlantis!
Third Atlantean: Too late!
[The waves triggered by an explosion, which threatens to drown the island of Atlantis. In the midst of an evacuation from the capital city.]
Fourth Atlantean: [It alarms to people shouting and running] Everyone to the shelters! Everyone to the shelters!
Atlantean guard: [To Nedakh's family] This way your highness. Quickly!
Queen Kashem Nedakh: [first words] Kida, come on! [The Queen of Atlantis protect a young child Kida] [last words] Kida! Just leave it! There's no time! [before she dies]
[King Kashekim Nedakh looks to the Queen of Atlantis is caught by a hypnotic blue light and lifted up into the Heart of Atlantis, a powerful crystal protecting the city.]
Young Kida: Mahtim! MAHTIM!
[It shields to protect it, the time of the Great Flood called the Meh-behl-moak, that destroyed Atlantis]
Young Kida: [King saves a young child Kida] Mahtim!
King Kashekim Nedakh: [his first words] Close your eyes, Kida! Look away!
[The Queen in the Heart of Atlantis, The city of Atlantis destroyed by the Great flood like grease trap in the sink]

[Serveral thousand years later, in 1914, Milo Thatch believes that he has found The shepherd's Journal, an ancient manuscript allegedly containing directions to the lost island]
Milo Thatch: [Talking to 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.

So, by changing this letter and inserting the correct one, we find that the Sherpherd'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. [Telephone ring] Uh, would you gentlemen please excuse me for a moment? Cartography and Linguistics, Milo Thatch speaking. Yeah. Uh, just, just a second. [Took a wrench Fixing the boiler room, begins turning values, then hits it] Pardon me, Mr. Hickenbottom. How's that? Is that better? Yeah. You're welcome... Now, as you can see by th-- by, [By in his map in the shirt] this uhm... map, map that-that-- [clears throat] ...that I've drawn, I plotted the route that will take myself and a crew to the Southern coast of Iceland to retrieve to retrieve the Journal. [hear birdhouse clock sound] Ah, showtime. Well, this is it. I am finally getting out of the dungeon. [Took a Thaddeus photo to little Milo picture is sees, it put in hat to Milo it downs, Thaddeus laugh, He smiles, It opens to see a Thaddeus's hat, and down to it. It got mail to it] "Dear Mr. Thatch, this is to inform you that your meeting today has been moved up from 4:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. [checks clock] What? [another letter appears] Dear Mr. Thatch. Due to your absence, the board has voted to reject your proposal. Have a nice weekend, Mr. Harcourt's office." They can't do this to me!
Mr. James: I swear that young Thatch gets crazier every year!
Mr. Hickenbottom: If I ever hear the word "Atlantis" again, I'll step it from in the bus!
Mr. James: [chuckles] I'll push you! Hah! Hah!
Milo Thatch: [Off-screen] Mr. Harcourt?
Board Member: Good lord! There he is!
Mr. Harcourt: How did you find us?
Milo Thatch: Mr. Harcourt, wait!
[Scares off the professors to the doors by Milo]
Mr. Hickenbottom: Head for the hills!
Mr. Harcourt: Where is a guard when you need him?
Milo Thatch: Mr. Harcourt, you gotta listen to me, sir! [Mr. Harcourt hides behind a tree] Uh, sir? [Mr. Harcourt smiles at Milo, then opens umbrella pop to posters to him] Wait! Mr. Harcourt! Sir, l-I have new evidence that... [back of the car opens for Mr. Harcourt] Please, Mr. Harcourt! Stop! Sir, if you-- Could you hold--? Thank you very much. Look at--
Mr. Harcourt: This museum funds scientific expeditions based on facts, not legends and folklore. Besides, we need you here. We depend on you.
Milo Thatch: You do?
Mr. Harcourt: Yes. What with winter coming, that boiler's gonna need a lot of attention.
Milo Thatch: Boiler?
Mr. Harcourt: Onward, Heinz!
Milo Thatch: But, the-- there's a journal! It's in Iceland! I'm sure of it this time.
[Closes the carpet in car, Milo jump in the car]
Milo Thatch: Sir, I really hoped it wouldn't come to this, but this is... (Uh!) ...a letter of resignation. If you reject my proposal, I'll-- Whoa! I'll quit! I mean it, sir. If you refuse to fund my proposal...
Mr. Harcourt: You'll what? Flush your career down the toilet, just like your grandfather? You have a lot of potential, Milo. Don't throw it all away chasing fairy tales.
Milo Thatch: But I can prove Atlantis exists.
Mr. Harcourt: You want to go on an expedition? [tosses Milo a coin] Here. Take a trolley to the Potomac and jump in! Maybe the cold water will clear your head. Heinz!
[Drives off it slips Milo maps]

Milo Thatch: [Back home] I'm home. Fluffy? [Close door] Here, kitty. [tries to turn on the light, but it's broken]
[Thunder to Helga appears to Milo in the apartment]
Helga Sinclair: [First words] Milo James Thatch?
Milo Thatch: [To Helga] Who, who are you? H-How did you get in here?
Helga Sinclair: I came down the chimney. Ho, ho, ho. My name is Helga Sinclair. I'm acting on behalf of my employer who has a most intriguing proposition for you. Are you in interested?
Milo Thatch: You-you-your, your employer. Huh. Who is your Employer?
[It traveler employer to Preston B. Whitmore's house, it cuts]
Helga Sinclair: [Took off a Milo's Jacket] This way, please. And don't drip on into the carvaggio. Step lively. Mr. Whitmore does not like to be kept waiting. [Tuck your suit, bow-tie, pants and glasses to Milo in the elevator] You will address him as "Mr. Whitmore" or "Sir." You will stand unless asked to be seated, keep your sentences short and to the point. Are we clear? [Milo gulps] [About Mr. Whitmore] And relax. He doesn't bite... often.

Milo Thatch: [Mr. Whitmore and Thaddeus picture frame] Grandpa?
Preston B. Whitmore: Finest Explorer I ever met. Preston Whitmore. [Milo shake his Whitmore's foot] Pleasure to meet you, Milo. [Cracking a foot] Join me in a little yoga?
Milo Thatch: Uh, no, no. Thank you. Did you really know my grandfather?
Preston B. Whitmore: Oh, yeah. Met old Thaddeus back in Georgetown.[Wriggle is foot] Class of '66. We take close friends til end of his days. [Took hand to feet cracking] He dragged me along on some of his danged fool expeditions. Thatch was crazy as a fruit bat, he was. He spoke of you often.
Milo Thatch: Funny. He, he never mentioned you.
Preston B. Whitmore: Oh, he wouldn't. He knew how much I liked my privacy. [Pants down to cracking a legs] I keep a low profile.
Milo Thatch: Mr. Whitmore, should I be wondering why I'm here?
Preston B. Whitmore: Look on that table. Ah! It's for you. [Milo gives a brought to Thaddeus's present a Journal]
Milo Thatch: It's-- It's from, from my grandfather.
Preston B. Whitmore: He brought that package to me years ago. He said if anything were to happen to him, I should give it to you when you were ready, whatever that means.
[He wraps it, and see it is the Shepherd's Journal]
Milo Thatch: It-- It can be. It's the Shepherd's Journal. Mr. Whitmore, this journal is the key to finding the lost continent of Atlantis.
Preston B. Whitmore: Atlantis! Ha, ha, ha! I wasn't born yesterday, son.
Milo Thatch: No, no, no. Look-look at this. Coordinates. Clues. It's all right here.
Preston B. Whitmore: Yeah, looks like gibberish to me.
Milo Thatch: That's because it's been written in a dialect that no longer exists.
Preston B. Whitmore: So, it's useless.
Milo Thatch: No, no, just difficult. I've spent my whole life studying dead languages. It's not gibberish to me.
Preston B. Whitmore: [Wears a suit and tie and uses Thaddeus's stick] Ah, it's probably a fake.
Milo Thatch: Mr. Whitmore, my grandfather would have known if this were a fake. I would know. I will stake everything I own, everything that I believe in, that this is the genuine Shepherd's Journal.
Preston B. Whitmore: All right, all right. So what do you want to do with it?
Milo Thatch: Well, I'll-I'll-I'll get funding. I mean, I'll-- The museum.
Preston B. Whitmore: They'll never believe of you.
Milo Thatch: I'll show them! I will make them believe.
Preston B. Whitmore: Like you did today?
Milo Thatch: Yes! Well, no. H-How did you--? Forget about them. Okay? Never mind! I will find Atlantis on my own. I mean, if I have to rent a rowboat!
Preston B. Whitmore: Congratulations, Milo. This is exactly what I wanted to hear, but forget the rowboat, son. [Push his bottom] We'll travel in style. [Collections of vehicles a styles, Milo looking a style] It's all been arranged, the whole ball of wax.
Milo Thatch: Why?
Preston B. Whitmore: For years, your granddad bent my ear with stories about that old book. I didn't buy it for a minute. So finally, I got fed up and I 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. Now, I know your grandfather's gone, Milo. God rest his soul, but Preston Whitmore is a man who keeps his word. [Pointed to Him and Thaddeus photo with the stick and swinging it] You hear that, Thatch? I'm going to the afterlife with a clear conscience, by thunder! [chuckles and sighs] Your Grandpa was a great man. You probably don't realize how great. Those buffoons at the museum dragged him down, made a laughing stock him. He died a broken man. If I could bring back just one shred of proof, that'd be enough for me. Ah, Thatch. [Turns to Milo] What are standing around for? We got work to do.
Milo Thatch: But, Mr. Whitmore, You know in order to do what you're proposing, you're gonna need a crew.
Preston B. Whitmore: Taken care of.
Milo Thatch: You'll need engineers and-and geologists.
Preston B. Whitmore: [Spreads Photos with friends] Got' em all. The best of the best. Gaetan Moliere, Geology and excavation. The man has a nose for dirt. Vincenzo Santorini, demolitions. Busted him out of a Turkish prison. Audrey Ramirez. Don't let her age fool you. She's forgotten more about engines than you or I will ever know. They're the same crew that brought the journal back.
Milo Thatch: Where was it?
Preston B. Whitmore: [Photo to everyone in the Iceland with the Journal] Iceland.
Milo Thatch: [happily] I knew it! I knew it!
Preston B. Whitmore: All we need now is an expert in gibberish. So it's decision time. [Milo look a real photo to Iceland to everyone with Thaddeus] You can build on the foundation your grandfather left you, or you can go back to your boiler room.
Milo Thatch: [Looks version in photo] This is for real.
Preston B. Whitmore: Now you're catching on.
Milo Thatch: All right. Okay. I-I-I'll have to quit my job.
Preston B. Whitmore: It's done. You resigned this afternoon.
Milo Thatch: I did?
Preston B. Whitmore: Yep. Don't like to leave loose ends.
Milo Thatch: Uh, my apartment, I have to give notice.
Preston B. Whitmore: Taken care of.
Milo Thatch: My clothes?
Preston B. Whitmore: Packed.
Milo Thatch: My books?
Preston B. Whitmore: In storage.
Milo Thatch: My cat? [Fluffy appears on his shoulder and meows] My gosh.
Preston B. Whitmore: Your granddad had a saying: "Our lives are remembered by the gifts we leave our children." This journal is his gift to you, Milo. Atlantis is waiting. What do you say?
Milo Thatch: [Grabbing his coat fiercely] I'm your man, Mr. Whitmore! [He puts his coat on the wrong side] You will not regret this! Boy, I am so excited, I-I-I-I can't even hold it in.

Milo Thatch: [After being seasick] Carrots? Why is there always carrots? I didn't even eat carrots.
Packard: [Over the P.A system] Attention. All hands to the launch bay. To whoever took the "L" from the "Motor Pool" sign, [sarcastically] ha-ha, we are all very amused.
Milo Thatch: [To Helga in ladder] Excuse me, I need to, uh, report in?
Helga Sinclair: Yes, Mr. Thatch?
Milo Thatch: [He shocked to Helga in bag] Aah! Uh, it's you!
Cookie: Blondie, I've got a bone to pick with you.
Helga Sinclair: [To Milo] Hold that thought. [To Cookie] What is it this time, Cookie?
Cookie: You done stuffed my wagon full to bustin' with non-essentials! Look at all this! Cinnamon, oregano, cilantro. What in the cock-a-doodle is cilantro?! [picks up a batch of lettuce.] What is this?
Helga Sinclair: That would be lettuce.
Cookie: Lettuce?! Lettuce?!
Helga Sinclair: It's a vegetable, Cookie. The men need the four basic food groups.
Cookie: I got your four basic food groups! [holds up three fingers] Beans, bacon, whisky and lard!
[alarm sounds]
Helga Sinclair: [gives lettuce to Cookie] All right cowboy, pack it up, and move it out!
Packard: [over the P.A system] Attention. All hands to the launch bay. Find loading in progress.
[Milo and the army men took down, submarine]

Vinny: Hey, junior. If you're looking for the pony rides, they're back there.
Milo Thatch: Um, excuse me, excuse me. You dropped your dy-dy-dy-dyna-dyna-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.
Preston B. Whitmore: Milo! Where you been? I want you to meet Commander Rourke. He led the Iceland team that brought the Journal back.
Commander Rourke: [First words] Milo Thatch. Pleasure to meet the grandson of old Thaddeus. I see you got that journal. Nice pictures, but, I prefer a good western myself.
Preston B. Whitmore: Pretty impressive, eh?
Milo Thatch: Boy, when you settle a bet, y-you settle a bet.
Preston B. Whitmore: Well, your granddad always believed you couldn't put a price on the pursuit of knowledge.
Milo Thatch: Well, uh, believe me, this'll be a small change compared to the value of what we're gonna learn on this trip.
Commander Rourke: Yes, this should be enriching for all of us.
Packard: [Over the P.A system] Attention, all personal. Launch will commence to 15 minutes.
Commander Rourke: Mr. Whitmore.
Preston B. Whitmore: Rourke!
Commander Rourke: It's time.
Milo Thatch: [Tripping to Launching the submarine] Bye, Mr. Whitmore!
Preston B. Whitmore: Make us proud, boy!
Diving Officer: Rig ship for dive!
Chief of the Watch: Aye, sir! Rig ship for dive.
Commander Rourke: Lieutenant, Take her down.
Helga Sinclair: Diving officer, submerge the ship.
Diving Officer: Aye!
Helga Sinclair: Make the depth 1-5-0 feet.
Diving Officer: Make the depth 1-5-0 feet.
Intercom: Dive, dive! Five degrees down bubble.
Diving Officer: Take us down.

Packard: [over the P.A system] Attention. Tonight's supper will be baked beans. Musical program to follow. Who wrote this?
[Milo goes in his cabin and lays on the bed, a pair of telescopic eyes looks at him]
Milo Thatch: Aah!
Mole: You have disturbed the dirt.
Milo Thatch: Uh, pardon me?
Mole: You have 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 Thatch: What's it doing in my bed?
Mole: You ask too many questions. Who are you? Who sent you? Speak up.
Milo Thatch: Me, I'm, uh--
Mole: Bah. I will know soon enough. [grabs Milo's hand]
Milo Thatch: Hey-hey-hey! Let go!
Mole: Do not be such a crybaby! Hold still! [takes a tiny dirt sample from Milo's fingernail with tweezers] Aha! There you are! Now tell me your story, my little friend. [looks at dirt with his magnifying goggles] 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 Thatch: 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? Moliere, 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 and runs to his bed. Sweet whips his towel at him] Back, foul creature! Back to the pit from which you came! [to Milo] The name's Sweet, Joshua Sweet. Medical officer.
Milo Thatch: Yeah. Milo Thatch.
Sweet: Milo Thatch. You're my 3 o'clock. [reaches into his back and pulls out a saw] Well, no time like the present.
Milo Thatch: [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 depressor] Now, stick out your tongue and say "Ah"!
Milo Thatch: Oh, no really, I-- [Sweet puts tongue depresser in his mouth] Ahhgabla!
Sweet: So, where you from? [Milo grunts something] Really? I have family up that way. Beautiful country up there. You do any fishing? [Milo mumbles] Me? I hate fishing. I hate fish. Hate the taste, hate the smell and hate all them little bones. [as he speaks he does several things from putting the depressor away to taking Milo's pulse, then finally pulls up two bottles] Here, I'm gonna need you to fill these up.
Milo Thatch: [spits out thermometer] With what?!
Packard: [on PA] Would Milo Thatch please report to the bridge?
Milo Thatch: [under his breath] Thank you. [to Sweet] I mean, uh, nice meeting you. [runs off]
Sweet: [watching Milo run off] Uh-huh, nice meeting you too.

Packard: [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 got another call. Sir, we're approaching coordinates. Hello, Margie? Yeah, so anyways, he says...
Commander Rourke: Alright, Let's have look around.
Helga Sinclair: Aye, sir. Set course to 2-4-0. 50 degrees down angle on the bow planes. Come right 2-4-0.
Commander Rourke: Welcome to the bridge, Mr. Thatch. Okay, everybody. I want you to give Mr. Thatch your undivided attention.
Milo Thatch: [Talking to a group of people in his submarine] Good afternoon. Can everyone hear me okay? [Audrey chews on gum and blows a bubble] Heh. Okay, uh... H-How 'bout some slides? The-the first slide is a depiction of a creature. A creature so frightening that sailors were said to be driven mad by the mere sight of it.
[Slide shows Milo at the beach; all laugh]
Packard: Hubba, hubba.
Milo Thatch: I'm sorry, that's... wrong.
Audrey: [Spanish accent; about Milo] Jeez, I used to take lunch money from guys like this.
Milo Thatch: [Slide shows the Leviathan] Anyway, this, uh, okay. This is an illustration of the Leviathan, the creature guarding the entrance to Atlantis.
Vinny: [About the Leviathan] With something like that, I would have white wine, I think.
Milo Thatch: It's a mythical sea serpent. He's described in the Book of job. The-The Bible says... "Out of his mouth go burning lights, sparks of fire shoot out." But more likely it's a carving or, a sculpture to frighten the supersititious.
Commander Rourke: So we find this masterpiece. Then what?
Mole: When we do dig?
Milo Thatch: Actually, We don't have to dig. You see, according to the journal, the path to Atlantis will take us down a tunnel at the bottom of the ocean, and we'll come up a curve into an air pocket right here, where we'll find the remnants of an ancient highway that will lead us to Atlantis. Kind of like the grease trap in your sink.
Helga Sinclair: [About Milo] Cartographer, linguist, plumber. Hard to believe he's still single.
Mole: [Grabs Helga's hand] You said there would be digging.
Helga Sinclair: [Back off to Mole] Go away, Mole.
Helmsman: [To Rourke] Captain, you better come look at this, sir.
Commander Rourke: Okay, Class dismissed. Give me the exterior your lights.
[Submarine turn the lights on to look a destroyed a ships]
Helga Sinclair: [To Milo and Rourke] Look at that.
Milo Thatch: There are ships here from every era.
[The sink in the ships, Leviathan sighting a submarine in the deep ocean. Packard put a smoke igniting match, turns the P.A system, it hearing the Leviathan and call the hydrophone to Rourke]
Packard: Commander, I think you should hear this.
Milo Thatch: [To Rourke and Helga, He looking the shepherd's journal, but Packard is on the P.A system phone] "Predeshtem..."
Packard: Commander?
Milo Thatch: "...logtu nug..."
Packard: Commander?
Milo Thatch: "...nah geb. Enter the lair of the Leviathan."
Packard: Commander?
Milo Thatch: "There you will find the path to the gateway."
Packard: Commander?
Commander Rourke: Yes, Mrs. Packard. What is it?
Packard: I'm picking up something on the hydrophone I think you should hear.
Commander Rourke: Put it on speakers. [Packard put it on speakers, about the sound of the Leviathan] What is it? A pod of whales?
Packard: Uh-uh. Bigger.
Helga Sinclair: It sounds metallic. Could be an echo off one of the rocks.
Packard: Do you want to do my job? Be my guest.
Milo Thatch: Is it just me, or is that getting louder?
[silence]
Helga Sinclair: Well, whatever it was, it's gone now.
Commander Rourke: Helmsman! Bring us about. Tighten our search pattern and slow us to--
[Leviathan appears and attacks the submarine in the deep ocean]
Audrey: Out of the way!
[Leviathan attacks use a claw to submarine]

Commander Rourke: [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.
Helga Sinclair: Load the torpedo bays! Subpod crews, battle stations!
Ensign: Battle stations!
Commander Rourke: [The soldiers in the Ulysses and he's on the radio] Steady, boys. Don't panic.
[The Leviathan bite the Submarine]
Milo Thatch: [After seeing the Leviathan's eye] Jiminy Christmas! It's a machine!

Commander Rourke: Launch subpods!
Ensign: Subpods away!
[The subpods takes off the Submarine to start fire the torpedos to the Leviathan]
Commander Rourke: [On the radio, to Vinny and Mole] Fire! [Shoots the torpedos to the Leviathan to escape a submarine] We're free. All ahead full.
[The Leviathan gets away the submarine and attacks a subpods to explosives]
Commander Rourke: Fire torpedoes!
Ensign: Fire torpedoes!
[The Leviathan gets hit by torpedoes, the creature shoots strength the Electric bolt blasters tries to strike a submarine]

Audrey: Get me the bridge!
Packard: Sir, it's engineering on four.
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.
Commander Rourke: How much time do we have?
Audrey: 20 minutes, if the bulkhead holds. [hears a distant explosion] You better make that 5.
Commander Rourke: You heard the lady. Let's move!
Milo Thatch: Move? Where? Move where?
Helga Sinclair: Packard, sound the alarm!
Packard: [on the phone] And he took his suitcase? Marge, honey, I don't think he's coming back.
Helga Sinclair: Packard!
Packard: I have to call you back. No, no, I'll call you.

Packard: [Over the P.A System into the aqua] All hands, abandon ship.
Helga Sinclair: [Milo, Sweet and Audrey in the Aqua] Move it, people! Sometime today would be nice! Come on! [Grab a seat and Buckle in] Everybody grab a seat and buckle in.
Commander Rourke: Lieutenant, get us out of here! [Submarine going down deep in ocean, The Leviathan roars like a Gallimimus from Jurassic Park] Lieutenant!
Helga Sinclair: I'm working on it! [The Leviathan is roaring swims down in the deep ocean, it shoots a electric bolt blasters beams to strike a submarine again. Take a brake] Hang on.
[Everyone offs the Submarine getting explosive, The Leviathan chases in the deep ocean]
Commander Rourke: Where to, Mr. Thatch?
Milo Thatch: We're looking for a big crevice of some kind.
Commander Rourke: [Pointed to quake cracking] There! Up ahead.
Helga Sinclair: All craft, make your mark 20 degrees down angle.
Diving Officer: Roger! 20 degrees down angle.
Mole: Right behind you! [The Leviathan been swims through, it roars attacks by claw destroy a subpod] Sacre bleu!
Man: We're getting killed out here!
[The Leviathan bumps dirt it pain roars chases subpods and aquas deeps into quake cracking, the Leviathan it gets away from the others is shoots electric bolt blastlers attach to it]
Sailor: Look out!
[The aqua gets explosive, It a aqua and subpod still here]
Milo Thatch: [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!!
[The Leviathan's electric bolt blasters faster you can, Until the subpod and aqua goes up and his break his glass, it durable hulls, everybody out the subpod and aqua, Helga turn flashlight, when seen where we going as well]

Commander Rourke: 7 hours ago, we started this expedition with 200 of the finest men and women I've ever known. We're all that's left. I won't sugar-coat it, gentlemen. We have 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 for survival rest with you, Mr. Thatch. You and that little book.
Packard: We're all gonna die.
Commander Rourke: [Everyone moving to trucks to journey] Okay, people, saddle up. Lieutenant, I want this convoy moving 5 minutes ago.
Helga Sinclair: Moliere, you're on the point. No, Vinny. Audrey's taking the oiler. You know the rules, I want you 50 yards behind that truck of all times. And Packard, put out the cigarette.
[Rourke turns to Milo and beeps his horn on the truck, He anger to took off a horn to him]
Commander Rourke: Are you sure you're checked out on this class of vehicle?
Milo Thatch: Uh--
Commander Rourke: Can you drive a truck?
Milo Thatch: Pfft! Of course I can drive a truck. I mean, sure, you got your steering, and your gas, and your brake, and, of course, this metal, uh, looking... thing. [Slight pause] Okay, so it was a bumper car at Coney Island but it's the same basic principle!
[Rourke sighs]
[Milo drives a truck going to stops beeps and again and again to keep moving]
Soilder: What's the hold-up?
Driver: Come on, move it!
Soilder: What's the hold-up?
Milo Thatch: Sorry abou-- Sorry about that.
Second Driver: [Mole beeps helps Milo in the truck, he got digger and everyone follows him] Come on, civilian!

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

Milo Thatch: Good night! Will you look at the size of this? It's gotta be half a mile high, at least. It-It must have taken hundred-- No, pfft, thousands of years to carve this thing.
[Vinny blows it up, and it falls down over a chasm]
Vinny: Hey, look, I made a bridge. It only took me like, what? Ten seconds? Eleven, tops.

Commander Rourke: Looks like we have a little road block. [looks to Vinny] Vinny, what do you think?
Vinny: I could un-road block that if I had about 200 of these. [points to a stick of TNT in his hand] Problem is I only got about [counts on fingers] 10. Plus, you know, [pulls up a small bag] 5 of my own. And a couple of cherry bombs. [pulls out a road flare] A road flare. Hey, too bad we don't have some nitroglycerin, eh, Milo?
[Milo gives Vinny an angry look while Mole guffaws.]
Commander Rourke: Looks like we're gonna have to dig.
Mole: [gasps in glee] It will be my pleasure. [flashes a thumbs up]

[Mole's digger breaks down.]
Mole: [coughs] Oh! Stupid! [bangs 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.]
Milo Thatch: Umm--
Audrey: [from inside digger] It looks like the rotor's shot! I'm gonna have to pull a spare from one of the trucks.
Milo Thatch: Uh, can I--
Audrey: ¡No toques nada! [Do not touch anything!] 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 Thatch: Well, ya know, the boiler in this baby is a Humac model P54/813. Now, we got the 814 back at the museum. The heating cores on the whole Humac line have always been a little, ya know, temperamental, so sometimes you gotta, boom, persuade 'em a little.
Audrey: Yeah, yeah, thank you very much. Shut up. [spins around to face Milo, her hand clenched in a fist. Milo flinches.] Two for flinching. [punches Milo twice. Mole laughs at him.]

Milo Thatch: [Campers in the cave for glowing fire fly hive] This is it, It's gotta be.
Commander Rourke: Alright, will make camp here.
Audrey: Why is it glowing?
Mole: Huh. It is a natural phosphorescence.
Vinny: [About glowing fire fly hive] That thing is going to keep me up all night, I know it.
Cookie: [bells time, serves everyone the same, nondescript slop] Come and get it! For the appetizer, Caesar salad, escargot, and your Oriental spring rolls.
Audrey: [disgusted] Yuck!
Mole: I wanted the escargot.
Audrey: Knock yourself out.
Cookie: [Gives Milo food] Here you're go, Milo. Put some meat on them bones.
Milo Thatch: Thanks, Cookie. That looks... greasier than usual.
Cookie: You like it? Well, have some more. [Gives Milo more food] You're so skinny, if you turned sideways and stuck out your tongue, you'd look like a zipper.
Sweet: You know, we've been pretty tough on the kid. What do you say we cut him slack?
Audrey: Yeah, you're right. [to Milo] Hey, Milo. Why won't you come sit with us?
Milo Thatch: Really? You are don't mind?
Audrey: Nah! Park it here.
Milo Thatch: [Sit next to Sweet and Audrey] Gee, this is great! I mean, you know, it's an honor to be included in your-
[Mole puts a hot water bag underneath him, and it makes a fart noise, and Mole falls to the floor and guffaws]
Vinny, Sweet and Audrey: [angrily] Mole!
Mole: Ah, forgive me. I could not resist.
Audrey: [To Milo] Hey, Milo, don't you ever close that book?
Sweet: Yeah, you must've read it a dozen times by now.
Milo Thatch: I know, but this... this doesn't make any sense. See, in this passage here, the shepherd seems to be leading up to something. He calls it the Heart of Atlantis. It could be the power source the legends refer to. But then it just... it cuts off. It's almost like there's missing page.
Vinny: Kid, relax. We don't get paid overtime.
Milo Thatch: I know, I know. Sometimes I get a little carried away. But, hey, you know, that's what this is all about right? I mean, discovery, teamwork, adventure. Unless, maybe, you're just in it for the money.
Audrey: Money.
Packard: Money.
Sweet: Money.
Mole: Money.
Vinny: I'm gonna say... money.
Milo Thatch: [rubs neck] Well, I guess, I set myself up for that one.
Sweet: What, something wrong with your neck?
Milo Thatch: Oh, yeah. I must've hurt it when-- [Dr. Sweet adjust's Milo's neck] Aah! Ow!
Sweet: Better?
Milo Thatch: Yeah! Hey, how did you learn to do that?
Sweet: An Arapaho medicine man.
Milo Thatch: Get outta here.
Sweet: Born and raised with 'em. My father was an army medic. He settled down in the Kansas Territory after he met my mother.
Milo Thatch: No kidding.
Sweet: Nope. I got a sheepskin from Howard U., and a bearskin from old Iron Cloud. Halfway through medical school, I was drafted. One day, I'm studying gross anatomy in the classroom, the next, I'm sewing up rough riders on San Juan Hill.
Cookie: Main course!
Vinny: I couldn't eat another bite.
Audrey: Thanks anyway. Beside, I'm watching my weight.
Sweet: No, no, no. Don't make me don't ask.
Cookie: Ha, ha, ha! Don't you worry. It'll keep, and keep, and keep.
Packard: Thank God I lost my sense of taste years ago.
[Put in the trade slide over the food in the fire-pit it goes off. They rap it up a rope in the tent and everyone sleeps in]
Vinny: Aren't you going to pitch after tent?
Milo Thatch: Uh, I did. [Vinny gives sleeping bag to him] I guess I'm still a little rusty at this. I haven't gone camping since... well, the last time my grandpa took me.
Audrey: [About Thaddeus] I never got to meet your grandfather. What was he like?
Milo Thatch: [rolling a sleeping bag over in the tent with the light] Where do you start? He was like a father to me, really. My parents died when I was a little kid, and he took me in. [Chuckles impressed]
Audrey: What?
Milo Thatch: [To Audrey] Well, I was just thinkin'. One time, when I was eight, we were hiking along this stream, and I saw something shining in the water. It was a genuine arrowhead. Well, you'd think I'd found a lost civilization, the way Grandpa carried on about it. It wasn't until I was older that I realized that the arrowhead was just some compressed shale mixed with zinc pyrite that had fractured into an isosceletic triangulate.
Mole: [Took a animal mole toy] That is so cute!
Milo Thatch: Say, Audrey. Uh, no-- No offense, but how does a teenager become the chief mechanic of a multi-million-dollar expedition?
Audrey: Well, 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 middleweight boxing champion. But he got my sister and me instead.
Milo Thatch: So, what... what happened to your sister?
Audrey: [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.
Milo Thatch: Forget your jammies, Mrs. Packard?
Packard: I sleep in the nude.
Sweet: [throws a sleep mask to Milo] You're gonna want a pair of these. She sleepwalks.
Vinny: Well, as far as me goes, I just like to blow things up.
Sweet: [pulls sleep mask to Vinny; about Milo] Come on, Vinny. Tell the kid the truth.
Vinny: 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 that boom.
[Mole digs down into the hole, turns light off and he chuckles]
Milo Thatch: What's Mole's story?
Sweet: [after Milo asks about Mole] Trust me on this one, you don't wanna know. Audrey, don't tell him. You shouldn't have told me, but you did, and now I'm tellin' you, you don't wanna know. [Blows the light gets night]

[Meanwhile, Everyone sleeping on the tents, Kida appears and hunters with the masks while hunting trip. She look for Milo's bag search for picture to Thaddeus and Milo and he's up out of the tent. Kida and the hunters runs off the tent. Milo turns a flashlight on with the shovel toilet paper]
Cookie: [Snores in the tent] The redhead's got a gun.
[Milo zip down the pants, the flashlight sees a Firefly hive, glowing flies, he getting buzz off the fireflies then drops a flashlight and squish by shovel toliet paper turns to fire]
Milo Thatch: Holy-- Whoa! [Fireflies burns a tents and there many glowing flies out of hive] Fire. [Fireflies chases and he alarm calling to everyone out of tent] Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!
Commander Rourke: [Glances at a clock reading 2:00 A.M] I'm gonna kill him. [Out the tent] Thatch, go back to bed.
Helga Sinclair: Get some water on that fire!
Commander Rourke: No time! Get us into those caves! Move it! Move it! Move it!
Cookie: Yah-ha! Gertie, pull!
[Cross the bridge]
Audrey: [chased by Truck] Milo, Jump! Right now!
[It destroys by watertank truck, crash his trucks it burns by fireflies, The Hive breaks down to the bridge]
Mole: [Mole's digger backs up to steering wheel] No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!
[The Bridge crash down by glowing fireflies in the cave, as everyone drive trucks going back down into Big Hole, and hitting bumps ahead get shocked by an accidents]
Sweet: Whoa! Whoa!
Audrey: Aah!
Commander Rourke: Aah!
[the screen cuts to black, and a crash is heard]

Commander Rourke: [after igniting match] Alright, who's not dead? Sound off.
[everybody groans; Rourke accidentally puts out match.]
Cookie: Danged lightnin' bugs done bit me on my sit-upon. Somebody's gonna have to suck out that poison. Now don't everybody jump up at once.
Commander Rourke: Audrey, give me a damage report.
Audrey: Not as bad as it could have been. We totaled rigs two and seven, but the digger looks like it'll still run. Lucky for us we landed in something soft.
Mole: Pumice ash. We are standing at the base of a dormant volcano.
[Helga pushes the telescope eye back to Mole with the flare gun, and shoots up the volcano]
Helga Sinclair: It just keeps going.
Vinny: Maybe that's our ticket out of here.
Helga Sinclair: [flare explodes] Maybe not.
Mole: The magma has solidified in the bowels of the volcano, effectively blocking the exit.
Packard: I got the same problem with sauerkraut.
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?
Commander Rourke: If we can blow the top off of that thing, We'd have a straight shot to the surface. Mr. Thatch, What do you think? [doesn't see Milo] Mr. Thatch? Thatch?

[Milo is injured with a cut on his chest.]
Atlanteans: Supak. Supak. Tegg. Yob. Yob top.
Princess Kida: Weh-shek, Beh-ket.
[Milo afraid by shocked to the groups of warriors]
Atlanteans: [the groups] Beh-ket, Beh-ket-yoakh.
Princess Kida: Kwahm.
[Milo pain his chest it bleed on each hand. Kida took a Mask off, she has face thin of blue eyes in sight to him. Milo meets Kida. Kida hold under shirt to Milo's chest to uses a magic crystal pendant to heal Milo and touch him with the magic light. The bleeding is gone and he served it. She put back in the Kida's Mask, but suddenly the groups scare away from everyone]
Milo Thatch: Hey, Wait! [Mole's digger being to chases Kida's hunters to find the Atlantis] Who-who are you?! Where you going?! Come back! [He climbs to cliff to find the Atlantis] Hey, wait a minute! WHO ARE YOU?! [echoes]
[Mole's Digger digging out of the cave to everyone, Upon seeing Atlantis]
Cookie: Sweet mother of Jefferson Davis!
Audrey: [to Vinny] It's beautiful!
Sweet: Milo, I gotta hand it to you. You really came through. [they are suddenly ambushed by Kida's hunting party] Uh, I take that back.
Commander Rourke: Holy cats! Who are these guys?
Milo Thatch: They gotta be Atlanteans.
Helga Sinclair: What? That's impossible.
Cookie: [About the Atlanteans behind their mask] I seen this back in the Dakota. They can smell fear just by looking at ya. [whispers] So keep quiet.
Princess Kida: [She with the Mask as speaks in Atlantean to everyone] Kashekim Nedakh! Who are you strangers and where did you come from?
Mole: [Grabs Milo's arm] I think it's talking to you.
Princess Kida: [In Atlantean] Who are you strangers and where did you come from?
Milo Thatch: [Milo speaks to them in Atlantean, in halting Atlantean with Kida] Who... are you strangers and... where did you come from?
Princess Kida: [Kida tries to communicate with Milo, going through various languages] Your manner of speech is strange to me.
Milo Thatch: [after Kida speaks to them in Atlantean, replying in halting Atlantean] I... travel... friend.
Princess Kida: [In Atlantean] You... travel-- So, you are a friendly traveler?
Milo Thatch: Ita, sum amice viator. [So, my friend, I am a traveler.]
Princess Kida: Dices linguam Romae. [You speak the language of the Romans.]
Milo Thatch: Parlez-vous francais? [Do you speak french?]
Princess Kida: Oui, monsieur! [Yes, sir!]
Mole: They speak my language! Pardon, mademoiselle? [motions to Kida with his finger, and she bends down to Mole, smiling sweetly] Ah, voulez-vous... [whispers something to Kida. She gives a disgusted look and punches him like a superhero knocking out a villain.]
Sweet: [Clapping] Ooh, I like her!
Audrey: Hmm! 'Bout time someone hit him. I'm just sorry it wasn't me.
Atlanteans: Buenos dias. Ciao. Guten tag. Konnichiwa. Namaste. Ni hao.
Audrey: How do they know all these languages?
Milo Thatch: Their language must be based on a root dialect. It's just like the Tower of Babel.
Commander Rourke: Well, maybe English is in there somewhere. We are explorers from the surface world. We come in peace.
Princess Kida: Welcome to the City of Atlantis. [To Milo] Come. You must speak with my father now.
Commander Rourke: Squad B, Head back to the shaft and salvage what you can. [everyone drives a trucks with Atlanteans and cross the bridge in Atlantis]
Squad B: Yes, sir!
Commander Rourke: We'll rendezvous in 24 hours.
Sergeant: Let's move it, you heard him.
Mole: [to Vinny, driving a truck; Mole chuckles] I'm so excited!

Milo Thatch: Now, what's really amazing is that if you deconstructed Latin, you overlaid it with a little Sumerian [Tap a pencil in journal with Rourke and Helga in the truck] throw in a dash of Thessalonian you'd be getting close to their basic grammatical structure, or at least you'd be in the same ballpark.
Helga Sinclair: Someone's having a good time.
Commander Rourke: Like a kid at Christmas.
Helga Sinclair: Commander, there were not supposed to be people down here. This changes everything.
Commander Rourke: This changes nothing.
Milo Thatch: Take that, Mr. Harcourt!
[We look here the city empire been of flames Atlantean to see a King's Chamber, the guards open a door to King's Chamber a throne room to King Kashekim Nedakh]

Princess Kida: [Atlantean speaking to Nedakh] Greeting your Highness. I have brought the visitors.
King Kashekim Nedakh: [Atlantean speaking to Kida] You know the law, Kida. No outsiders may see the city and live.
Princess Kida: [Atlantean speaking] Father, these people maybe able to help us.
King Kashekim Nedakh: [Atlantean speaking] We do not need their help.
Princess Kida: [Atlantean speaking] But, Father--
King Kashekim Nedakh: [Atlantean speaking] That is enough. We will discuss this later.
[Kida gently to the King]
Commander Rourke: [To Nedakh] Your Majesty? On behalf of my crew. May I say it is an honor to be welcome to your city.
Milo Thatch: [Clears throat and gruntly] Uh, Excuse me, Commander?
King Kashekim Nedakh: You presume much to think you are welcome here.
Commander Rourke: Sir? We have come along way looking for...
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: Oh, Your Majesty, be reasonable.
Milo Thatch: Sir?
Commander Rourke: Not now, son.
Milo Thatch: Trust me on this, 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.
Commander Rourke: Well, Thank you, Your Majesty.
[Kida sighs deeply]

King Kashekim Nedakh: Mmm. Your heart has softened, Kida. 1,000 years ago, you would have slain them on sight.
Princess Kida: 1,000 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.
Princess 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--
Princess Kida: If these outsiders can unlock the secrets of our past, perhaps we can save our future.
King Kashekim Nedakh: What they have to teach us, we have already learned.
Princess 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.

Sweet: So, How'd it go?
Milo Thatch: [Referring to Kashekim Nedakh and Kida] Well, the King and his daughter don't exactly see eye to eye. She seems to like us okay, but the King I don't know, I think he's hiding somethin'.
Commander Rourke: [Referring to Kashekim Nedakh] Well, if he's hiding something, I want to know what it is.
Helga Sinclair: [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!
Commander Rourke: [to Milo, who has not been pay attention and listening and he has a pencil in his mouth, while Helga evilly smirks] Good man, Thatch. Thanks for volunteering.
[Mole looks shocked, then bawls]
Audrey: [nudging Milo] Go get 'em, tiger.

Milo Thatch: [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]
Princess Kida: [imitating Milo] I have some questions for you and you are not leaving this city until they are answered.
Milo Thatch: Yeah, well, I-- Okay.
Princess Kida: [She grabs him again while cover your mouth] Shh! Come with me.

Princess Kida: [To Milo] Oh, There is so much to ask about your world. You are a scholar, are you not? Judging from your diminished physique and large forehead, you are suited for nothing else! [She takes off Milo's glasses and she wearing see it.] What is your country of origin? When did the flood waters recede? How do you--
Milo Thatch: Wait a minute. I got a few questions for you too. [He takes back Milo's glasses to Kida and wipes with his shirt.] So let's do this, okay? You ask one, then I'll ask one then you, then me, then-- Well, you get it.
Princess Kida: Very well. What is your first question?
Milo Thatch: Well, okay. Uh, how did you get here? Well, I mean, not you personally, but your-your culture. I mean, how did all of this... end up down here?
Princess Kida: It is said that the gods became jealous of Atlantis. They sent a great cataclysm and banished us here. All I can remember is the sky going dark and people shouting and running. Then, a bright light, like a star floating above the city. My father said it called my mother to it. I never saw her again.
Milo Thatch: I'm sorry. If it-- if it's any consolation. I-I know how you feel, because I lost my-- Wait a minute. Wait a minute! Whoa, back up! Wh... what-what are you telling me, that you remember because you were there? No, that-that's impossible because, I mean, that would make you... you know eighty-five, eighty-eight... hundred years old.
Princess Kida: Yes.
Milo Thatch: Oh, well, hey, uh, pfft! Lookin' good. Just, uh-- [clears throat] You got another question for me?
Princess Kida: Yes. How is it you found your way to this place?
Milo Thatch: Well, I'll tell you, it wasn't easy. If it weren't for this book, we never would have made it. Okay, second question, Legend has of your people possessed a power source of some kind that enabled them...
Princess Kida: [Stunned] You mean, you can understand this?
Milo Thatch: Yes, I'm a linguist. That's what I do in that's my job. Now, uh, getting back to my quest--
Princess Kida: This, right here. You can read this?
Milo Thatch: Yes, yes, I can read Atlantean, just like you. [slight pause] You can't, can you?
Princess Kida: No one can. Such knowledge has been lost to us since the time of the Meh-behl-moak.
Milo Thatch: Oh, The Great Flood.
Princess Kida: [Take it the Shepherd's Journal back at Milo and she's happy anytime] Show me.
Milo Thatch: Okay uh, [He begins speaking Atlantean]
Princess Kida: [Help Milo in this page] Follow the narrow passage for another league. There you will find the fifth marker.
Milo Thatch: Yeah. Yeah, that's it. [After speaking Atlantean] How was my accent?
Princess Kida: Boorish, Provincial, [about Milo] and you speak it through your nose.
Milo Thatch: Yeah, gotta work on that.
Princess Kida: Here, let me show you something.
[Kida show to Milo a first look Atlantean flying fish vehicle and she grabs off a sheet was looks like]
Milo Thatch: What? It looks like some... sort of vehicle.
Princess Kida: Yes. But no matter what I try it will not respond. Perhaps if...
Milo Thatch: Way ahead of you. Okay, let's see what we got here. [He seen the crystal over a pad while gently] Okay. Place crystal into slot.
Princess Kida: Yes, yes, I have done that!
Milo Thatch: Gently place your hand on the inscription pad.
Princess Kida: Yes!
Milo Thatch: Okay, did you turn the crystal one-quarter turn back...
Princess Kida: Yes, yes.
Milo Thatch: ...while your hand was on the inscription pad?
Princess Kida: Ye-- No.
Milo Thatch: [Chuckles] Ah, well, see, there's your problem right there, that's an easy thing to miss. You know, you deserve credit for even-even getting this far. [Kida waiting for him] Okay, I'll give a try.
[Kida put in a crystal over Half turn right, one-quarter back with each hand on the pad. The powers on flying fish vehicle until power source, she back up to Milo away of vehicle]
Princess Kida: [Gasps in shock] Yahd-lu-goh-nikh. [In Atlantean] [Good heavens.]
Milo Thatch: Yeah, you've got that right. Wh-- I s-- This is great! Well, with this thing, I can see the whole city in no time at all. Wonder how fast it goes? [Touch the pad toward too fast load battery. Milo and Kida ducking under a stone flying fish gets crash, but they little accident definitely] So, who's hungry?

Milo Thatch: [Later, they were exploring to Atlantis] By the way, we were never properly introduced. My name's Milo.
Princess Kida: My name is Kidagakash.
Milo Thatch: Ki-ki-kidamaschnaga... Uh, hey, you got a nickname?
Princess Kida: [Chuckles smiles] Kida.
Milo Thatch: Okay, Kida. I can remember that. [Nice a beautiful wind for Atlantis] Wow.
[Milo and Kida Standing on the statue empire king in Ancient city of the Atlantis]
[Milo sighs]
Princess Kida: What is wrong?
Milo Thatch: [on the verge of tears; he wipes his eyes and puts his glasses back on] Oh, it's nothing. I just-- got something in my eye. You know, my grandpa used to tell me stories, about this place as far back as I can remember. I just wish he could be standing here with me.

[Milo and Kida travel explore. Atlanteans caught a lobsters net, throws to him, snap he scared it, She handed and bite the lobster]
Princess Kida: [Put lobster in Milo's handbag] Tell me more about your companions. Your physician, he is called Cookie?
Milo Thatch: No, that's Sweet.
Princess Kida: What is?
Milo Thatch: [About Sweet] The doctor, he's Sweet.
Princess Kida: Oh, he's kindly.
Milo Thatch: No, no, no, that's... that's his name.
Princess Kida: His name is Kindly?
Milo Thatch: No, Sweet. Well, I mean, he's kindly, too.
Princess Kida: So, all of your doctors are sweet and kindly?
Milo Thatch: [as Cookie and Audrey] No. Well, I-I'm sure some are. Ours is, but that's not a requirement. You're missing the point.
Princess Kida: You are confusing me.
Audrey: [about an Atlantean] Wow. Look at all those tattoos.
Cookie: Shoot. That ain't nothin'. Look here what I got. [lifts up shirt, grossing Audrey out] All 38 United States. Watch me make Rhode Island dance. [wiggles his belly] Go on, baby, dance. Dance. There you go.
[Milo and Kida want to kids and this Atlantean family]
Princess Kida: Cookies are sweet, but yours is not. Sweet is kindly, but that is not his name. Audrey is sweet, but she is not your doctor. And the little digging animal called Mole... he is your pet?
Milo Thatch: Close enough.
Sweet: [to Vinny, as Mole eat his food rapidly] Oh, don't forget to eat the head. [Eats eyes the head] That's where all the nutrients are.
[Mole chewing a head while gulps down and big burps to Sweet and Vinny exhausted. Rourke's men take a couple of guns out the truck. Squad leader cocks pistol, sergeant and the others]

[Milo catches firefly and Kida use glowing jar stick to surface glowing flies]
Milo Thatch: You know, Kida, the most we ever hoped to find was some crumbling buildings, maybe some broken pottery. [catches a firefly] Instead, we find a living, thriving society. [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.
Princess Kida: We are not thriving. True, our people live, but our culture is dying. We are like a stone the ocean beats against. Which each passing year, a little more of us is worn away.
Milo Thatch: I wish there was something I could do.
Princess Kida: I have brought you to this place to ask you for your help. There is a mural here with writing all around the pictures.
Milo Thatch: Yeah, well, you came to the right guy. Okay, let me see. Let's start with this column right here. Uh, well this, uh, uhh... Kida? Uh, heh. What are you doing?
Princess Kida: [Take off her skirt to reveal a bikini bottom] You do swim, do you not?
Milo Thatch: Oh, I swim pretty girl. Pr-pretty good! Pretty good. Sw... Good, swim good. Pretty good. I swim pretty good.
Princess Kida: Good. It is a fair distance to where we are going.
Milo Thatch: Hey, you are talkin' to the belly-flop champ Camp Runamuck. [Filled the underwear and Kida looks funny to him and push down while funny to her] Come on, we're... we're wasting time. [Jumps into the water, Kida look down and he's rises to the surface back in the water] Why don't you lead the way because... I have no idea where we're going.
[Kida hold a breath jumps into the water and Milo hold a breath head down, swims in underwater to find a Heart of Atlantis, she rises to the surface and he rises hitting his head]
Princess Kida: Are you all right?
Milo Thatch: Well, I didn't drown so--
Princess Kida: Good, follow me!
[Milo swims down in the underwater mural it reads the Atlantean text writing script it and rises to the surface with Kida]
Milo Thatch: [excitedly] This is amazing; A complete history of Atlantis! It-It, It's just like Plato described; Well, I mean, he was off on a few details, but--
Princess Kida: The light I saw. The star in the middle of the city. What does the writing say about that?
Milo Thatch: I don't know yet, But we're gonna find out. Come on.
[Milo reads the Atlantean text in the underwater mural and rises to the surface with Kida]
Milo Thatch: [Softly] It's the Heart of Atlantis.
Princess Kida: What?
Milo Thatch: [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!
Princess Kida: It cannot be.
Milo Thatch: It's what keeping all these things, you, all of Atlantis alive!
Princess Kida: Then, where is it now?
Milo Thatch: 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: You have a nice swim?
Milo Thatch: 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 just another treasure hunt for you. You're after the crystal!
Commander Rourke: [Reveals the missing page] Oh, you mean this?
Milo Thatch: [Stunned] The Heart of Atlantis.
Commander Rourke: Yeah, about that, I would've told you sooner, but it was strictly on a need-to-know basis, and, well, now you know. I had to be sure you were one of us. [Raises his hand to Milo] Welcome to the club, son.
Milo Thatch: [backs away in disgust] I'm no mercenary.
[A mercenaries struggle takes place, which ends with Kida restrained.]
Commander Rourke: Mercenary? I prefer the term "Adventure capitalist." Besides, you're the one who got us here. You led us right to the treasure chest.
Milo Thatch: [Gets out of the water] 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 Thatch: 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 Thatch: [To Vinny step away the gun.] Rourke, don't...do this!
Commander Rourke: 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.
Milo Thatch: Not interested.
Commander Rourke: I gotta admit, I'm disappointed. You're an idealist, just like your grandfather. Do yourself a favor, Milo. Don't be like him. For once, do the smart thing. [Milo silently stares at Rourke with anger] I really hate it when negotiations go sour. [Snap his fingers allowing his men to point the gun at Kida and cocks it] Let's try this again. [shows Milo the missing page on the Heart of Atlantis again]

[Rourke and the others destroy the door to the throne room with a bomb]
Vinny: Knock, knock.
Cookie: [Raises and aims shotgun] Room service!
[Nedakh's guards raise their spears]
Helga Sinclair: [Holds Kida as hostage] Tell them to drop their weapons, now!
[Nedakh, in Atlantean, tells his guards to drop their spears and they do so]
Helga Sinclair: [Rourke's men search the room for the Heart of Atlantis] Spread out! Search everywhere!
Commander Rourke: You're not applying yourself, son. There's got to be something else.
Milo Thatch: Well, there isn't. It just says, "The Heart of Atlantis lies in the eyes of her king."
Commander Rourke: Well, then maybe Old King Cole here can help us fill in the blanks. How about it, chief? Where's the crystal chamber?
King Kashekim Nedakh: You will destroy yourselves.
Commander Rourke: Maybe I'm not being clear.
[Rourke punches Nedakh hard in the stomach causing Kida to be shocked. Nedakh falls on the ground, wounded; Kida angrily speaks in Atlantean]
Sweet: Rourke, this was not a part of the plan!
Commander Rourke: Plans change, Doc. I'd suggest you put a bandage on that bleeding heart of yours. It doesn't suit a mercenary. [Sits on Nedakh's throne, knocking over a bowl of fruit and spilling its contents everywhere] Well, as usual, diplomacy has failed us. [To Nedakh] Now I'm going to count to 10 and you're going to tell me where the crystal is. One. [cocks pistol] Two. [Aims at Nedakh, shocking everyone] Nine. T-- [breaks off as he looks at the water than back at the book. The presence of Heart of Atlantis has been revealed in the water] "The Heart of Atlantis lies in the eyes of her king." This is it, we're in! [throws the Shepherd's Journal back at Milo and heads to the entrance to Heart of Atlantis]
Milo Thatch: Rourke, for the last time, you've gotta listen to me. You don't have the slightest idea what this power is capable of!
Helga Sinclair: True, but I can think of a few countries who'd pay anything to find out.
Commander Rourke: Hurry. Get on. [Milo, Kida, Rourke and Helga get on the platform leading to find the Heart of Atlantis] Jackpot!

[Inside the preparing crystal chamber]
Princess Kida: [She Gasps deeply to the crystal chamber kings it seen heaven, she tears up] The kings of our past.
[Milo, Rourke, and Helga looks at Kida, she kneeling head down and prays quietly in Atlantean]
Commander Rourke: Thatch, tell her the wrap it up. We got a schedule to meet.
[Milo silently turns to Helga with anger, as Kida continues to pray in Atlantean]
Milo Thatch: [He touch Kida on her back; quietly] Um... Kida... I'm sorry.
[Rourke sees the crystal chamber, he kick a little stone in the water it changing color to red bright the beacon of light.]
Helga Sinclair: Come on, let's get this over with. I don't like this place.
Commander Rourke: [To Milo] All right, Thatch. What's next?
Milo Thatch: Okay, there's a giant crystal hovering 150 feet above our heads over a bottomless pit of water. [Off-screen] Doesn't anything surprise you?
Commander Rourke: [Off-screen] The only thing surprises me--
Princess Kida: [Like her Mother, She has idea the face more thin but a pendant still move up to the Heart of Atlantis. She looks chosen to find her Mother.] Mahtim.
Commander Rourke: [Off-screen] That thing's not on the truck yet. Now move it!
Milo Thatch: I don't know how to move it. I don't even know what's holding well it up there.
[Kida walks, Rourke handed to Milo it's waiting for her]
Commander Rourke: Talk to me, Thatch. What's happening?
Milo Thatch: Look, all it says here is that crystal is... alive somehow. It-- I don't know how to explain it. It's their deity. It's their power source.
Commander Rourke: Speak English, professor.
Milo Thatch: [As Kida] They're part of it. It's part of them. [To Rourke] I'm doing the best I can here.
Commander Rourke: [Handed to Rourke's gun sidearm] Well, do better.
Milo Thatch: [Angry to Rourke] I know, why don't you translate, and I'll wave the gun around?!
Princess Kida: Soh-lesh Mah-toh-noat, Milo Thatch-toap. Kwahm Teh-red-seh-nen. [All will be well, Milo Thatch. Be not afraid.]
Commander Rourke: [About Kida] What did she say?
Milo Thatch: I... I don't know, I didn't catch it.
[Kida begins walk in the phosphorescence. Milo, Rourke and Helga is watch her. She looks chosen up the Heart of Atlantis to find her Mother, as she cover a pendant crystal it bonded, holding up with the feet, she's floating over sacrifice and she's transforms into a crystal. They starts jackpot to crystal chamber, everyone sees going faster as spinning. The jackpot to crystal chamber powers off gets dark, Kida bonded to the crystal use a power energy. As everyone sees Crystal Kida is glowing for losses crystal chamber power source off a bloodshed goes down in the water.]
Commander Rourke: [Holds Milo on the shoulder] Hold your horses, lover boy.
[To Crystal Kida]
Milo Thatch: Kida. [Crystal Kida open eyes] Kida. [Crystal Kida walk back to platform leading, as the crystal chamber drop in the water of the Heart of Atlantis accept losses power source. Rourke cannot touch the Crystal Kida with Helga] No, don't. Don't touch her.

[Everyone puts in Crystal Kida in the container, with the crew truck to these guys]
Commander Rourke: All right, step back.
Squad leader: Sergeant, Keep those people back!
Sergeant: You heard him, step back! [pushes Milo back when he is angry]
Milo Thatch: [To the guys who are preparing to leave with the Heart of Atlantis] 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; sarcastically] Congratulations, Audrey, guess you and your dad will be able to open up that a second garage after all. [To Vinny] And Vinny, you can a 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.
Commander Rourke: Get off your soapbox, Thatch. You've read Darwin. It's called natural selection. We're just helping it along.
Helga Sinclair: Commander, we're ready.
Commander Rourke: Yeah, give me a minute. I know I'm forgetting something. I got the cargo, the crystal, the crew-- Oh, yeah. [he punches Milo in the face to the ground causing him to lose his picture and causes the Atlanteans to gasp in shock as well] Look at it this way, son. You were the man who discovered Atlantis, and now you're part of the exhibit. [Catches Milo's glasses and breaks his picture of him and Thaddeus and then returns the glasses to Milo] Let's move, people.
Helga Sinclair: That was an order, not a suggestion. Let's go!
[Audrey, Vinny, Mole and Cookie decide to switch to Milo's side]
Packard: [Sighs] We're all gonna die. [Joins them]
Commander Rourke: [Outraged] Aw, you can't be serious.
Audrey: This is wrong, and you know it!
Commander Rourke: Where this close to our biggest payday ever and you pick now of all times and grow a conscience.
Vinny: We've done a lot of thing's we're not proud of: [counting off fingers] robbing graves, eh, plundering tombs, double parking, but nobody got hurt. Well...maybe somebody got hurt, but nobody we knew.
Commander Rourke: Well, if that's the way you want it, fine. [Turns to the truck] More for me. [Gets in the truck] P.T. Barnum was right.
[Rourke, Helga and their mercenaries drives away and departs Atlantis with Kida in it and causing the waterfall to be stop and the Atlanteans' crystals lose power]
Milo Thatch: We can't let them do this!
Vinny: Wait a second! [Holds Milo back]
[After crossing the bridge, Rourke presses a detonator and everybody dives for cover as the bridge is blown up]
Vinny: Okay, now you can go.
Sweet: [Off-screen] Milo, you better get up here!
[Milo back at the King's chamber, Sweet uses stethoscope help a Nedakh while bleeding, after punched by Rourke]
Milo Thatch: [About Nedakh] How's he doing?
Sweet: Not good ,I'm afraid. Internal bleeding. And there's nothing more I can do.
Milo Thatch: What a nightmare. And I brought it here.
Sweet: Ah, don't go beating yourself up. He's been after that crystal since Iceland.
Milo Thatch: The Crystal. [excitedly] Sweet, that's it. These-- These crystals they have some sort of healing energy. I've-- I've seen it work.
King Kashekim Nedakh: [Turns to Milo] No. [about Kida] Where is my daughter?
Milo Thatch: [about Kida] Well, she...she...Mmm.
King Kashekim Nedakh: [about Kida] She has been chosen. Like her mother before her.
Milo Thatch: 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 Thatch: W-wait a minute. "Choose"? So, 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 weakly] 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 Thatch: 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 Thatch: What do you mean? Wh-- What's gonna happen to Kida?
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 Thatch: Me?
King Kashekim Nedakh: [his last words; weakly] Return the crystal. Save Atlantis. Save my daughter. [stops breathing and dies]

[After King Kashekim Nedakh dies]
Sweet: So, what's it gonna be?
Milo Thatch: Excuse me?
Sweet: I followed you in, and I'll follow you out. It's your decision.
Milo Thatch: 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 Thatch: 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 Thatch: [scoffs] Who told you that?
Sweet: A fellow by the name of Thaddeus Thatch.

Audrey: Where are you going?
Milo Thatch: I'm going after Rourke.
Audrey: Milo, that's crazy.
Milo Thatch: I didn't say it was the smart thing. But it is the right thing.
Audrey: [Sighs] Come on, you better make sure he doesn't hurt it self. [Milo walks with everyone going after Rourke] Milo, What did you think your doing?
Milo Thatch: Just follow my lead. [Turn the crystal and gently inscription pad fish vehicle after Kida shows]
Packard: Wow. I'm impressed.
Milo Thatch: It's simple. All you got to do--
Audrey: [Move space to Milo] Yeah, yeah, yeah. Shut up. We get it, okay?
Milo Thatch: No, no, wait!
[Audrey pushes hard inscription pad with Milo, it goes up and back against the wall, The Atlantean Warriors look surrounded as well]
Milo Thatch: Gently. Just gently.
Vinny: Hey, Milo. You got something sporty? You know, like a tuna?
Atlantean: How is this done?
Milo Thatch: [Milo's team squad shows a crystal to gently inscription pad like Kida] All you got to do is use the crystals. Kida showed me. [He gets New vechicle aktirak] Half-turn right, quarter-run back. Keep your hand on the pad.
[The Atlanteans Warriors quarter-turn back on scription pad]
Cookie: [Swinging the gun] Saddle up, partners! Bring jerky and ammo!
[Milo gives notice a team squad to everyone which after the Rourke and war]
Mole: [on various occasions] I'm so excited!
Milo Thatch: Alright, this is it! We're gonna rescue the Princess, we're gonna save Atlantis, or we're gonna die trying! Now let's do it!
[The Atlanteans cheering to Thatch's team squad flying battle in war to find rescue at Kida]

[Rourke's men take a missile can blow up it's blast in the volcano, depart an iceland score them]
