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.

Indy, why does the floor move?

Sallah

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

Major Eaton

Brody: Marion's the least of your worries right now, believe me, Indy.
Indiana: What do you mean?
Brody: Well, I mean that for nearly three thousand years man has been searching for the lost ark. It's not something to be taken lightly. No one knows its secrets. It's like nothing you've ever gone after before.
Indiana: Oh, Marcus. What are you trying to do, scare me? You sound like my mother. We've known each other for a long time. I don't believe in magic, a lot of superstitious hocus pocus. I'm going after a find of incredible historical significance, you're talking about the boogie man. Besides, you know what a cautious fellow I am.

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?

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.

Indiana

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.

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

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

Belloq

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.

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

Sallah

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