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.

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.

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

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

Marion: Well, Jones, at least you haven't forgotten how to show a lady a good time.
Indiana: Boy, you're something.
Marion: Yeah? I'll tell you what. Until I get back my five thousand dollars, you're gonna get more than you bargained for. I'm your goddamn partner.

Indiana: There's a big snake in the plane, Jock.
Jock: Oh, that's just my pet snake, Reggie.
Indiana: I hate snakes, Jock. I hate 'em.
Jock: C'mon, show a little backbone, will ya?

Satipo: Let us hurry. There is nothing to fear here.
Indiana: That's what scares me.

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.

Indiana: Give me the whip.
Satipo: Throw me the idol. No time to argue. Throw me idol, I throw you the whip.
Indiana: [throws the idol] Give me the whip.
Satipo: Adiós, señor.

You can't do this to me, I'm an American!


You Americans, you're all the same. Always overdressing for the wrong occasions.
