Watching a fireworks show: hosting a backyard barbecue; wearing red, white, and blue; displaying the American flag… these are just a few ways people celebrate Independence Day in the U.S.

But if you’d like to add a little extra sizzle to your July 4th holiday this year,  join us for a look at the beloved adventure movie “National Treasure” in which Nic Cage utters one of the most iconic (and most memed) lines of all time: “I’m gonna steal the Declaration of Independence.”

From behind-the-scenes stories to fast facts about the historical clues used in the film, this fun episode will not only bring back nostalgic memories of the movie and a swaggering Nic Cage, but also of your 8th-grade field trip. 

They say history repeats itself. In this case, nearly 20 years after the film’s release, you have the chance to revisit the quest of Benjamin Franklin Gates, his sidekick Riley Poole, and archivist Abigail Chase to save one of America’s most important documents. It’ll be an episode to treasure!
