Marion: You're not the man I knew ten years ago.
Indiana: It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.

Professor of archeology, expert on the occult, and how does one say it? Obtainer of rare antiquities.

Major Eaton

Sallah: Indy, there is something that troubles me.
Indiana: What is it?
Sallah: The Ark. If it is there, at Tanis, then it is something that man was not meant to disturb. Death has always surrounded it. It is not of this earth.

Dietrich: Dr. Jones, surely you don't think you can escape from this island?
Indiana: That depends on how reasonable we're all willing to be. All I want is the girl.
Dietrich: And if we refuse?
Indiana: Then your Führer has no prize.

Indy, why does the floor move?


Indiana: Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?
Sallah: Asps. Very dangerous. You go first.

[to Indy] Asps... very dangerous. You go first.


This site also demonstrates one of the great dangers of archeology. Not to life and limb, although that does sometimes take place. I'm talking about folklore.


Sallah: Indy, you have no time. If you still want the ark, it is being loaded onto a truck for Cairo.
Indiana: Truck? What truck?

Indiana: Meet me at Omar's. Be ready for me. I'm going after that truck.
Sallah: How?
Indiana: I don't know, I'm making this up as I go.

So once again, Jones, what was briefly yours is now mine.


Belloq: What a fitting end to your life's pursuits. You're about to become a permanent addition to this archaeological find. Who knows? In a thousand years, even you may be worth something!
Indiana: Ha ha ha... Son of a bitch.
