Belloq: How odd that it should end this way for us after so many stimulating
encounters. I almost regret it. Where shall I find a new adversary so close to
my own level?
Indiana: Try the local sewer.
Toht: You Americans, you're all the same. Always overdressing for the wrong
[Marion is being kidnapped]
Marion: You can't do this to me, I'm an AMERICAN!
[Indiana needs his bullwhip to swing across a chasm]
Indiana: Give me the whip!
Satipo: Throw me the idol. No time to argue. Throw me idol, I'll throw you the
Indiana: [throws the idol] Give me the whip!
Satipo: Adiós, señor!
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: [laughing] 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.
[throws his gun into his suitcase]
Satipo: Let us hurry. There is nothing to fear here.
Indiana: That's what scares me.
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?
Marion: Well, Jones, at least you haven't forgotten how to show a lady a good
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!
Marion: You're not the man I knew ten years ago.
Indiana: It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.
[Army Intelligence officer describing Indiana Jones]
Officer: Professor of archeology, expert on the occult, and how does one say it?
Obtainer of rare antiquities.
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.
Indiana: You want to talk to God? Let's go see him together, I've got nothing
better to do!
Belloq: You and I are very much alike. Archeology is our religion, yet we have
both fallen from the pure faith. Our methods have not differed as much as you
pretend. I am but a shadowy reflection of you. It would take only a nudge to
make you like me. To push you out of the light.
Indiana: Now you're getting nasty.
[Upon opening the Well of the Souls and peering down into it.]
Sallah: Indy, why does the floor move?
Indiana: Give me your torch.
[Sallah does, and Indy drops it in.]
Indiana: Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?
Sallah: Asps. Very dangerous. You go first.
Indiana: 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
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.
Indiana: I don't know, I'm making this up as I go.
Belloq: Dr. Jones. Again we see there is nothing you can possess which I cannot
Belloq: 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.
Belloq: All your life has been spent in pursuit of archeological relics. Inside
the Ark are treasures beyond your wildest aspirations. You want to see it opened
as well as I. Indiana, we are simply passing through history. This, this *is*
Belloq: Next time, Indiana Jones, it will take more than children to save you.
Indiana: I can only say I'm sorry so many times.
Marion: Well, say it again anyway!
Indiana: Hello, Marion.
Marion: Indiana Jones! I always knew some day you'd come walking back through my
door. I never doubted that. Something made it inevitable. So, what are you doing
here in Nepal?
Indiana: I need one of the pieces your father collected.
[Marion surprises him with a right cross to the jaw.]
Marion: I've learned to hate you in the last ten years.
Indiana: I never meant to hurt you.
Marion: I was a child. I was in love. It was wrong and you knew it!
Indiana: You knew what you were doing!
Marion: Now I do! This is my place. Get out!
[Indy meets Belloq in a crowded bar]
Belloq: Good afternoon, Doctor Jones.
Indiana: I oughta kill you right now.
Belloq: Not a very private place for a murder.
Sallah: [catches date and points to dead monkey] Bad dates.
Belloq: Please, sit down before you fall down.
Sallah: Oh, my friends! I'm so pleased you're not dead!
Indiana: I'm gonna blow up the Ark, Rene!
Belloq: Your persistence surprises even me. You're going to give mercenaries a
Marion: Bar's closed.
Toht: We are - hehe - not thirsty.
Belloq: It's a transmitter, a radio for speaking to God.
