Charlie Wilson: No, I'm actually in danger of breaking the Logan Act.

Robert Langdon: There was every orb conceivable on that tomb except one. The orb which fell from the heavens and inspired Newton's life's work. Work that incurred the wrath of the Church... until his dying day. A-P-P-L-E. Apple.
