When they get there Kevin said they were going to make the trains drive into each other and steal all the money. Heatblast says that they can't do that because innocent people would die.

Say hello to Gwen for me. Love you. Max Out."

|Ben: It's hero time!|
|Ben: You have to see the good in people, and not just be a selfish jerk.|
|Ben: Every alien in this watch has a purpose. I'm suppose to be an example of that.|
|Ben: I don’t think you understand. I’m Ben Tennyson wielder of the most powerful weapon in the universe. I stopped the Highbreed Invasion, I defeated Vilgax in hand-to-hand combat, and I've beaten the Forever Knights more times than I can count. Here’s what’s going to happen. You’re going to release these prisoners, you’re going to crawl back to wherever you came from, and you’re going to stop hunting down aliens. Because if you don’t I promise you will regret it for the rest of your very short lives.
Enoch: Knights... fall back.
|Ben: Hello. Azmuth? I found your Omnitrix a few months ago and now it's stuck in self destruct mode and-
Azmuth: (in mech suit) I know. I invented it!
Ben: Oh yeah... so anyway if you could just turn it off.
(Two more vault doors shut)
Tetrax: Maybe Ben didn't make it clear why we're here.
Azmuth: I understand completely. You misused my creation and now the whole universe will be destroyed.
Ben: (enraged) You're telling me you're not gonna disable it! This thing on my wrist got my cousin killed, trapped my best friend in the Null Void, and now it's going to destroy the universe and you don't care!
Azmuth: None of that is my concern.
(Ben selects Cannonbolt)
Ben: It is now!
(Ben turns into Cannonbolt)
Cannonbolt: I've come to far! I've lost to much to be stopped now!
|Azmuth: I have stored within the Omnitrix DNA samples of every intelligent life form in the Milky Way and some of the Andromeda Galaxy.
Ben: 10,000 of them, I know.
Azmuth: As I'm continually forced to point out, you know very little. There are over one million samples encoded in the Omnitrix.
Ben: (surprised) A million?
Azmuth: And with the Omnitrix, you have the power to return to life any species that the Highbreed exterminates, including the Human Race.
Ben: I will NOT let the Highbreed-
Azmuth: If you are destroyed with the Omnitrix, there is no hope! Not for humanity, nor for any race the Highbreed extinguish afterwards. The Omnitrix is Noah's Ark - and YOU are Noah. I cannot allow you to participate in the final battle.
Ben: Sorry, Azmuth, but I don't buy your argument. The Earth needs to be saved, and I'm going to do it.
Azmuth: I won't allow it.
Ben: How could you stop me?
Azmuth: I'll take the Omnitrix from you!
Ben: (poised to activate the Omnitrix) You'll try.
Azmuth: Very well. If you insist on this foolishness perhaps it is best if you have the full power of the Omnitrix. Access master control.
Omnitrix: Master control unlocked.
Ben: Everything's unlocked! How may aliens can I turn into?
Omnitrix: 1,000,905 genetic samples available.
|Ben: It’s never too late. New plan… working on it.|
|Ben: Maybe I can do more good as a public superhero than I did in secret. Sure, most people think I'm a menace now.
Julie: Only 26% of adult viewers think you're a menace.
Ben: See? That's not bad.
Julie: 74% think you're a threat.
Ben: Well, my point is, once people get to know me, I can win them over.
Julie: That hasn't been my experience.
|Ben: How could you do this?! You used to be a hero! I had your poster on my wall! Did you forget? This isn’t about fame! It’s about helping people!|
|Azmuth: You're just a child to naive to comprehend the severity of this mission.
Ben: You think I don’t know. When it’s hero time if I mess up somebody could die. If we mess up this time everybody could die. Maybe that's too much to have in your head when you have to win. Maybe if I pretend that everything’s a big joke when the time comes i’ll be able to do what I have to do.
|Ben: Okay nothing fancy. We go in. We destroy the Hyperspace Jumpgate. We capture any Highbreed we can find. That’s it. One more thing: whatever we were before, today we’re a team. We look out for each other. We win or lose -TOGETHER.|
|Sentinel: (dying) What have you done? It was the Map you were suppose to save, not me. My whole purpose was to protect that Map. I thought I'd seduced. But I see I have failed. All is lost.
Ben: I-I didn't.
Gwen: You did what you thought was right. You'd never leave anyone behind that's not who you are.
|Gwen: (holds up jacket)
Ben: I don't deserve that. It belongs to hero.
|Cannonbolt: I got this!
(turns back to Ben)
Ben: You know for a watch you have a pretty lousy sense of timing.
|Max: Easy Ben, he wants you angry.
Ben: Then today's his lucky day.
|Gwen: What's the plan Ben?|
|Ben: Azmuth, help me! Please! Just so I can help them.
Azmuth: (appears) You are a fool!
Ben: You don't hear me arguing.
|Azmuth: The Omnitrix wasn't intended for you. It was intended for your grandfather, the greatest Plumber in the Milky Way Galaxy.
Ben: But, I found it.
Azmuth: An accident. Unfortunately, your DNA signature was close enough to Max's that it allowed you to put it on
Ben: Why didn't you take it from me?
Azmuth: I intended to, but your grandfather convinced me you were a better choice. He said you had the seeds of greatness.
|Max: You sure don't need me anymore.
Ben: I'll always need you, Grandpa.
