Sophie Neveu:
A cryptex. They are used to keep secrets. It's da Vinci's design. You write the information on a papyrus scroll which is then rolled around a thin glass vial of vinegar. If you force it open, the vial breaks, vinegar dissolves papyrus, and your secret is lost forever. The only way to access the information is to spell out the password with these five dials, each with 26 letters. That's 12 million possibilities.
Robert Langdon:
I've never met a girl who knew *that* much about a cryptex.
Sophie Neveu:
Saunière made one for me once.
Robert Langdon:
My grandfather... gave me a wagon.

Transcript:
A cryptex.
They are used to keep secrets.
It's da Vinci's design.
You write the information
on a papyrus scroll,
which is then rolled around
a thin glass vial of vinegar.
If you force it open,
the vial breaks,
vinegar dissolves papyrus...
and your secret is lost forever.
The only way
to access the information
is to spell out the password
with these five dials,
each with 26 letters.
That's 12 million possibilities.
I've never met a girl who knew
that much about a cryptex.
Saunière made one for me once.
My grandfather gave me a wagon.
This clearly is not
the Holy Grail.
Come on.
Please, you're not all right.
May I try something?
I don't know why it works.
My mother used to do it
when I was scared, I think.
You think?
Yes.
