Tad Jones and the Secret of King Midas




We're gonna get dragged!

We've gotta get out of here!

Just five minutes more!




Over there!

I found it. I finally found it.

Okay, let's get out of here!



Told you she'd be here, sir.

I kept my part of the agreement.

Well, a deal is a deal.

Oh, wow! You are really generous,

Mister Rackham, sir. (CHUCKLES)

Enjoy it.

What... What are you...

Hey, what are you doing, fellows?

Let go of me!

No, no, no!


Back to business.

Herodotus was considered

the father of History. Cool.

Super cookie.

Wow, this guy was the bomb.

Hey, you're really

hitting those books hard.

Tell me about it. First year

of archaeology is super demanding.

I don't get what you find

so interesting about this old stuff.

Oh, now I get it.

- Now that is something worth studying.

- She's hot.

Hey, don't talk like that about Sara.

Don't start again.

Nobody buys that you know her.

Actually, we even kissed.

Okay, just once.

Oh, here we go.

Then we barely saw each other

after that.

You know, she's been going away

on long expeditions,

and I've been studying and working.

We kind of left things in the air.

Oh, sure. You kissed this girl?

But even long distance,

I feel her here, close to my heart.

- I can sense the trembling.


I can really sense the trembling.

(GASPS) It's Sara!

Yeah. And I just got a call

from Scarlett Johansson.

- Hey, watch it!

- TAD:

Tad, you should try

living in reality for a change.


Tad. I hope I'm not interrupting.

Not at all.


Hey, I saw you on the cover

of National Petrographic.

(CHUCKLES) I know, right?

Did you get the invitation

to the exhibition?

Yeah! I can't wait to be there!

Wonderful. I can't wait to see you.

Me, too.

The exhibition opens

at the Luxorious Hotel, in Las Vegas.

- Need directions?

- Let me find a pen.



- Where are you going?

- What? Nowhere, I'm still here.

No, no, I didn't mean you.


- Whoa, whoa, whoa!

- My bad!

- Tad, do you want me to hang up?

Stop right there!

Okay, so I won't hang up.

No, wait!

Are you okay?

Yeah. So, Luxorious Hotel?

Yes. First, take the I-290 west

for 30 miles...

I-290 west for 30 miles!

- And turn the second left.

- Right, keep left.

And then go straight.

You'll get to a pyramid shaped hotel.

You can't miss it.

Big pyramid-shaped hotel.

I got it.

No, I didn't.

What? Did you get it or not?

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!


- Bye, Sara!

- Whoa!


- Tad?



(SIGHS IN RELIEF) That was close.

Oops! Sorry.

Is everything okay in there, boss?



Oh, my lucky cologne.

Smell that.

My Indy hat,

my fancy tuxedo, and my bow tie.

Two shirts, suspenders,

new underwear...

I think that's all.

Do you think she'll like it, Jeff?



Ready, Jeff? Let's go see Sara.


Sir, are you all...

- Water!




Water! Water!


Need water!

It's you!

I haven't had a drink in 20 days.

No, no, no, stop! Oh! That's... Oh!



Oh, you can't imagine

the trip I had to find you.

Oh, it's so good to see you!

It's not possible!

What are you doing here?

Oh, it's a long story,

I'd better not tell you.

(LAUGHS) But I will. You see,

when you left my lost city,

I was judged for letting you go.

The Mummy Court exiled me!

They kicked you out?

Yeah, all because of you!
