[dressed as the ticket-taker] Tickets please.
Indiana Jones
[in German] What?
Colonel Vogel
[Indiana punches him, picks him up and throws him out a window into a pile of luggage; the other passengers look at him, bewildered]
[pointing out the window at Vogel] No ticket.
Indiana Jones
[the other passengers all pull out their tickets and wave them furiously at him]

You lost today, kid. But that doesn’t mean you have to like it.
Fedora

He chose… poorly.
– Grail Knight

Please, what does it always mean, this… this “Junior”?
Sallah
That’s his name.
Professor Henry Jones
[points to himself]
Henry Jones…
Professor Henry Jones
[points to Indy]
…Junior.
Professor Henry Jones
I like “Indiana.”
Indiana Jones
We named the *dog* Indiana.
Professor Henry Jones
May we go home now, please?
Marcus Brody
The dog?
Sallah
[starts laughing]
You are named after the dog? HA HA HA…!
Sallah
I’ve got a lot of fond memories of that dog.
Indiana Jones

Nazis. I hate these guys.
– Indiana Jones

Sallah, I said *no* camels. That’s *five* camels. Can’t you count?
– Indiana Jones

Tell me about this miserable little diary of yours. The book is useless and yet you come all the way back to Berlin to get it. Why?
Colonel Vogel
[he slaps Henry in the face with his glove]
Why?
Colonel Vogel
[he slaps him again]
What are you hiding?
Colonel Vogel
[he slaps him again]
What does the diary tell you that it doesn’t tell us?
Colonel Vogel
[he tries to slap him again; Henry grabs his wrist, stopping him]
[through his teeth] It tells me, that goose-stepping morons like yourself should try *reading* books instead of *burning* them!
Professor Henry Jones

Archeology is the search for fact, not truth. If it’s truth you’re interested in, Dr. Tyree’s Philosophy class is right down the hall. So forget any ideas you’ve got about lost cities, exotic travel, and digging up the world. We do not follow maps to buried treasure, and “X” never, ever marks the spot.
– Indiana Jones

What’s this?
Elsa
Ark of the Covenant.
Indiana Jones
Are you sure?
Elsa
Pretty sure.
Indiana Jones

[of Indy’s new lover] How did you know she was a Nazi?
Indiana Jones
She talks in her sleep.
Professor Henry Jones

It’s disgraceful, you’re old enough to be her… her grandfather.
Indiana Jones
Well, I’m as human as the next man.
Professor Henry Jones
Dad, I *was* the next man.
Indiana Jones
Oh… ships that pass in the night.
Professor Henry Jones

The Word of God.
Professor Henry Jones
No, Henry. Try not to talk.
Marcus Brody
The Name of God.
Professor Henry Jones
The Name of God… Jehovah.
Indiana Jones
But in the Latin alphabet, “Jehovah” begins with an “I”.
Professor Henry Jones
J-…
Indiana Jones
[he steps on the “J” and almost falls to his death; he scrambles back up]
Oh, *idiot*! In Latin Jehovah begins with an “I”!
Indiana Jones

It’s perfectly obvious where the pages are. He’s given them to Marcus Brody.
Elsa
Marcus? You didn’t drag poor Marcus along did you? He’s not up to the challenge.
Professor Henry Jones
He sticks out like a sore thumb. We’ll find him.
Walter Donovan
The hell you will. He’s got a two day head start on you, which is more than he needs. Brody’s got friends in every town and village from here to the Sudan, he speaks a dozen languages, knows every local custom, he’ll blend in, disappear, you’ll never see him again. With any luck, he’s got the grail already.
Indiana Jones
[Cut to middle of fair in the Middle East, Marcus Brody wearing bright suit and white hat, sticking out like sore thumb]
Uhhh, does anyone here speak English?
Marcus Brody

Come on, dad. Help me get us out of here. We have to get to Marcus before the Nazis do.
Indiana Jones
But you said he had a two day head start. That he would blend in, disappear.
Professor Henry Jones
Are you kidding? I made all that up. You know Marcus. He once got lost in his own museum.
Indiana Jones

Water?
Street Vendor
No thank you, sir, no. Fish make love in it.
Marcus Brody

 

I’m like a bad penny, I always turn up.
– Indiana Jones

I suddenly remembered my Charlemagne. Let my armies be the rocks and the trees and the birds in the sky…
– Professor Henry Jones

Those people are trying to kill us!
Professor Henry Jones
[shouts] I know, Dad!
Indiana Jones
This is a new experience for me.
Professor Henry Jones
It happens to me all the time.
Indiana Jones
