Indiana Jones: Archaeology is the search for fact... not truth.

Professor Henry Jones: You call *this* archaeology?!

Soldier: You have the diary in your pocket.
Professor Henry Jones: You dolt! You think my son would be that stupid; he would bring my diary all the way back here? (pause) You didn't, did you? (another pause) You didn't bring it, did you?
Indiana Jones: Well, uh...
Professor Henry Jones: You did!
Indiana Jones: Look, can we discuss this later?
Professor Henry Jones: I should have mailed it to the Marx Brothers.
Indiana Jones: Will you take it easy?
Professor Henry Jones: Take it easy? Why do you think I sent it home in the first place? So it wouldn't fall into their hands!
Indiana Jones: I came here to save you!
Professor Henry Jones: Oh yeah? And who's gonna come to save you, Junior?
Indiana Jones: I TOLD YOU...
[grabs a gun and shoots all soldiers dead]
Indiana Jones: ... Don't call me Junior!
Professor Henry Jones: Look what you did!! I can't BELIEVE what you did!!

Professor Henry Jones: Junior?
Indiana Jones: Yes Sir!
Professor Henry Jones: It IS you Junior!
Indiana Jones: Don't call me that PLEASE!!

[Encountering a painting of the Ark of the Covenant.]
Elsa: What's this?
Indiana Jones: Ark of the Covenant.
Elsa: Are you sure?
Indiana Jones: Pretty sure.

Indiana Jones: Sallah, I said NO camels! That's FIVE camels; can't you count?

Walter Donovan: Germany has declared war on the Jones boys.

Panama Hat: Small world, Dr. Jones!
Indiana Jones: Too small for two of us!
Panama Hat: This is the second time I've had to reclaim my property from you!
Indiana Jones: That belongs in a museum!
Panama Hat: So do you!

Professor Henry Jones: The quest for the grail is not archeology, it's a race against evil. If it is captured by the Nazis the armies of darkness will march all over the face of the earth. Do you understand me?
Indiana Jones: This is an obsession, Dad. I've never understood it. Never. Neither did Mom.
Professor Henry Jones: Oh yes she did. Only too well. Unfortunately, she kept her illness from me. All I could do was mourn her.

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

Elsa: [to Indy] I'll never forget how vonderful it vas.
Professor Henry Jones: Why thank you. It was rather wonderful.
Elsa: [Kisses Indy.] Zat's how Austrians say goodbye.
Colonel Vogel: Und zis is how ve zay goodbye in Germany, Dr. Jones.
[Punches Indy.]
Indiana Jones: I liked the Austrian way better.
Professor Henry Jones: So did I.

Professor Henry Jones: They're trying to kill us!
Indiana Jones: I know, Dad!
Professor Henry Jones: This is a new experience for me.
Indiana Jones: It happens to me all the time.

Indiana Jones: Listen. Since I've met you I've nearly been incinerated, drowned, shot at, and chopped into fish bait. We're caught in the middle of something sinister here, my guess is dad found out more than he was looking for and until I'm sure, I'm going to continue to do things the way I think they should be done.

[Escaping in a biplane]
Professor Henry Jones: I didn't know you could fly a plane.
Indiana Jones: Fly, yes. Land, no.

[Nazi colonel Vogel is torturing Henry to get answers]
Colonel Vogel: 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?
[He slaps Henry in the face with his glove]
Colonel Vogel: Why?
[He slaps him again]
Colonel Vogel: What are you hiding?
[He slaps him again]
Colonel Vogel: What does the diary tell you that it doesn't tell us?
[He tries to slap him again until Henry grabs ahold of his hand]
Professor Henry Jones: It tells me that goose-stepping morons like yourself should try reading books instead of burning them.

Indiana Jones: I'm like a bad penny, I always turn up.

[Indiana Jones is asking Henry how he could've slept with Elsa]
Professor Henry Jones: I'm as human as the next man.
Indiana Jones: Dad, I was the next man!

Professor Henry Jones: Sorry about the head but I thought that you were one of them.
Indiana Jones: Dad, they come in through the doors!
Professor Henry Jones: Ha, good point.

Indiana Jones: Nazis. I hate these guys.

Professor Henry Jones: Elsa never really believed in the grail. She thought she'd found a prize.
Indiana Jones: And what did you find, Dad?
Professor Henry Jones: Me? Illumination.

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

[To Indiana, while watching a Nazi parade and book burning]
Professor Henry Jones: My son, we're pilgrims in an unholy land.

Marcus Brody: Indy, Henry, Follow me! I know the way!!
Professor Henry Jones: He got lost in his own museum, eh?

[Lecturing in class]
Indiana Jones: "X" never, ever marks the spot.

[Finding a hidden passage in a Venetian library]
Indiana Jones: "X" marks the spot!

Marcus Brody: The search for the Grail is the search for the divine in all of us. But if you want facts, Indy, I've none to give you. At my age, I'm prepared to take a few things on faith.

Professor Henry Jones: [Examining the broken vase] Late 14th Ming Dynasty. Oh it breaks the heart!
Indiana Jones: And the head. You hit me dad.
Professor Henry Jones: I'll never forgive myself.
Indiana Jones: Don't worry I'm alright.
Professor Henry Jones: Thank God... it's fake! See you can tell with the cross sections!

Elsa: It's perfectly obvious where the pages are. He's given them to Marcus Brody.
Professor Henry Jones: Marcus? You didn't drag poor Marcus along did you? He's not up to the challenge.
Walter Donovan: He sticks out like a sore thumb. We'll find him.
Indiana Jones: 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.
[Cut to middle of fair in the Middle East, Marcus Brody wearing bright suit and white hat, sticking out like sore thumb]
Marcus Brody: Uhhh, does anyone here speak English?!

Professor Henry Jones: Junior, I have to tell you something...
Indiana Jones: Not now, Dad!
Professor Henry Jones: The carpet's burning... and the chair!

Indiana Jones: It was just the two of us, dad. It was a lonely way to grow up. For you, too. If you had been an ordinary, average father like the other guys' dads, you'd have understood that.
Professor Henry Jones: Actually, I was a wonderful father.
Indiana Jones: When?
Professor Henry Jones: Did I ever tell you to eat up? Go to bed? Wash your ears? Do your homework? No. I respected your privacy and I taught you self- reliance.
Indiana Jones: What you taught me was that I was less important to you than people who had been dead for five hundred years in another country. And I learned it so well that we've hardly spoken for twenty years.
Professor Henry Jones: You left just when you were becoming interesting.

Sultan: Rolls-Royce Phantom two. 4.3 litre, 30 horsepower, six cylinder engine, with Stromberg downdraft carburetor, can go from zero to 100 kilometres an hour in 12.5 seconds. And I even like the color.

Street Vendor: Water?
Marcus Brody: No thank you, fish make love in it.

Indiana Jones: No ticket.

Professor Henry Jones: The floor's on fire, see?...and the chair...

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

[Repeated line.]
Indiana Jones: Ahh, Venice.

Professor Henry Jones: Marcus!
Marcus Brody: Aah!
Professor Henry Jones: Genius of the res-to-ration!
[Brody finishes the handshake.]
Marcus Brody: Aid our own re-sus-ci-tation! Henry, what are you doing here?
Professor Henry Jones: It's a rescue! Come on!
[The Nazis catch both Marcus and Henry.]
