As the PHP code is executed by most web servers, it is not possible to 'steal' a script. You can use the .phps extension to make a file not recognised by the web server if you want to make one downloadable yourself.

Best way to download is not to use a web server, but FTP for example. Fetching a script from a site that is not supplying them, so downloading the source of a script that is running, is not possible.

Would that be nice if we could just download Facebook's or someone else's source code? $$$

Fortunately nobody can just up and download a PHP script from a website. However, if you're looking for a script that does something specific I would recommend one of the many open source script providers online. Sourceforge is a good place to start.
