Wu Han: (to Indy) Be careful.
Lao: You never told me you spoke my language, Doctor Jones.
Indy: Only on special occasions.
Lao: So it's true? You've found Nurhachi?
Indy: You know I did. Last night one of your boys tried to get Nurhachi without paying for him.
Indy stares pointedly at Chen, who lifts a recently bandaged hand from his lap.
Lao: You have insulted my son.
Indy: No, you have insulted me. I spared his life.
Willie: (to Lao) Aren't you gonna introduce us?
Lao: This is Willie Scott; this is Indiana Jones, a famous archaeologist.
Willie: Well I always thought that archaeologists were always funny looking men going around looking for their mommies.
Indy: Mummies.
Willie: (to Lao) This Nurhachi is a real small guy.
Indy: Are you trying to develop a sense of humor, or am I going deaf?
Chen: (laughing) Too much to drink, Dr. Jones?
Short Round: Wow! Holy Smoke! Crash landing!
Indy: Short Round, step on it!
Short Round: Okey dokey, Dr. Jones. Hold on to your potatoes!
Willie: For cryin' out loud, there's a kid driving the car!
Short Round: Hey, Dr. Jones, no time for love. We've got company.
Weber: Ah, Dr. Jones. I'm, ah,l Weber. I spoke with your assistant. Ah, we've managed to secure three seats. But there might be a slight inconvenience as you will be riding on a cargo plane full of live poultry.
Willie: So what are you supposed to be, a lion tamer?
Indy: I'm allowing you to tag along, so why don't you give your mouth a rest? Okay, doll?
Willie: (indignantly) What do you mean, "tag along"? Ever since you got into my club, you haven't been able to take your eyes off of me.
Indy: Oh yeah?
Indy leans back and tips his hat down over his eyes to go to sleep.
Willie: You know how to fly, don't ya?
Indy: No. (hopefully) Do you?
Willie: I hate the water! And I hate being wet! (to Indy) And I hate you!

Shaman: The evil start in Pankot. Then like monsoon, it moves darkness over all country.
He passes his hand across his eyes.

Indy: (politely firm) We weren't brought here. Our plane crashed.
Willie: (helpfully) It crashed.
Shaman: (interrupting) No. No. We prayed to Siva to help us find the stone. It was Siva who made you fall from sky, so you will go to Pankot Palace to find Sivalinga and bring back to us. Bring back to us.
Short Round: What is Sankara?
Indy: Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.
Willie: Pankot?! I can't go to Pankot. I'm a singer!
Willie: Ooh, what big birds.
Indy: Those aren't big birds, sweetheart. They're giant vampire bats!
Reaching down for more clothes. Willie comes up instead holding a giant bat by the wings. She screams hysterically. The bat screeches and hisses, flapping its wings in an attempt to get free.
(to Short Round) The biggest trouble with her is the noise.
Short Round: I very little, you cheat very big.
Indy: Willie, Willie. What is that? Is that short for something?
Willie: Willie is my professional name... Indiana.
Short Round: Hey, lady. You call him Dr. Jones.
Indy: My professional name.
Chattar Lal: I should say you look rather lost. But then I can't imagine where in the world the three of you would look at home.
Chattar Lal: Dr. Jones? the eminent archaeologist?
Willie: (sarcastically) Hard to believe, isn't it?
Willie: (to Short Round) That's the maharajah? A kid!
Short Round: Maybe he like older women.
Willie: (to Short Round) Give me your hat.
Short Round: Why?
Willie: Because I'm gonna to puke in it!
Short Round quickly pulls his hat away from her.

Chattar Lal: Dr. Jones, in our country, it's not usual for a guest to insult his host.

Merchant: Ah, dessert! Chilled monkey brains!
Indy: (smiling) Wear your jewels to bed, Princess?
Willie: Yeah -- and nothing else. (smiling) Shock you?
Indy: (shaking his head) Nothing shocks me. I'm a scientist.
Willie: I can be hard to handle.
Indy: I've had worse.
Willie: (seductive) But you'll never have better.
Indy: I don't know. As a scientist I don't want to predjudice my experiment. I'll let you know in the morning.
Indy closes the door to the bedroom. A moment later it flies open.
Willie: (indignant) Why, you conceited ape! I'm not that easy!
Indy: I'm not that easy either! The trouble with you is, Willie, you're too used to getting your own way.
Willie: And you're just too proud to admit that you're crazy about me Dr Jones.
Indy walks across the corridor and opens the door to his own room.
Indy: If you want me, Willie, you know where you can find me.
Indy stops by his door and sees Willie smiling as she holds up five fingers.
Willie: Five minutes. You get back over here in five minutes.
Indy: I'll be asleep in five minutes.
Willie: Five. You know it, and I know it.
Willie: Indiana Jones, this is one night you'll never forget. This is the night I slipped right through your fingers.
Across the hall, Indy fights for his life as Willie goes on with her tirade.
Willie: (continuing) Sleep tight and pleasant dreams. (suddenly melancholy) I could've been your greatest adventure.
In his search, Indy feels a slight breeze that moves a vase of dried flowers. He checks the source, running his hands over a carved stone figure of a woman. His hands rest on her breasts.
Willie: Hey, I'm right here.
Short Round: I step on something.
Their footsteps crunch on the tunnel floor.
Short Round: Feels like I step on fortune cookies.
Indy: It's not fortune cookies. Let me take a look.
Indy gets a match out of his pocket. He snaps it with his thumb and the match flares. They freeze as the light illuminates a grisly scene: The floor and walls of the narrow tunnel are an undulating mass of millions of enormous bugs. A scorpion crawls on Short Round's leg.
Short Round: That's no cookie!
Indy: Stop! Look, just stand against the wall, will ya?
Obediently, Short Round teans back against the wall, hands in his pockets. A block of stone behind him moves under the pressure, and with an ominous rumble, the ceiling begins to descend.
Short Round: (loudly) You say to stand against the wall! I listened to what you say! Not my fault! Not my fault.
Willie is staring horrified at the two corpses on the wall.
Willie: There're two dead people down here!
Indy: (off screen) There are gonna be two dead people in here! Hurry!
Indy: Willie!
Willie moves forward into the tunnel, and we see the bugs scuttling on the floor and walls.
Willie: What's the rush?
The spikes are moving inexorably closer to Indy and Short Round.
Indy: It's a long story, Willie. Hurry or you don't get to hear it!
Willie: You could get killed chasing after your damn fortune and glory!
Indy: (looking at her) Maybe... (smiling) But not today.
Short Round: I keep telling you, you listen to me more, you live longer!
Mola Ram: They dig for the gems to support our cause. They also search for the last two stones. Soon we will have all the five Sankara Stones, and the Thuggee will be all-powerful!
Indy: What a vivid imagination.
Once again the iron frame is lowered to the floor, and Willie is dragged toward the sacrificial deep fryer.
I'm not going to have anything nice to say about this place when I get back.
Indy's shoe is smoking! He jumps around stomping on the ground and moaning.
Water! Water! Water!
Willie: Oh, look!
Indy: Water! Water!
Willie: Oh, you're on fire!
Indy continues his frantic, foot-stomping jig. A rumbling behind them sounds increasingly ominous. Indy looks up and stops dead in his track -- paralyzed -- awestruck -- DOOMED!
Indy: Water!

The wind whips around Indy and he staggers unsteadily on the swaying bridge as he watches Mola Ram.
Indy: Let her go, Mola Ram.
Mola Ram: You are in a position unsuitable to give orders.


Indy pulls off the bag over his shoulder and holds it out dragging over the bridge.
Indy: You want the stones? Let 'em go! Let her go!
Mola Ram: (laughs) Drop them, Dr. Jones. They will be found. You won't.


Mola Ram shouts in Hindi and the guards both before and behind Indy on the bridge move closer and draw their swords.
Oh, shit!

Petrified, Willie also wraps the rope around her wrist. Indy raises the sword higher.
Willie: Oh my God. Is he nuts?
Short Round: He no nuts. He crazy.
Indy: Mola Ram, prepare to meet Kali... in Hell!
Willie: (to Indy) You could've kept it.
Indy: Ah, what for? They'd just put it in a museum. It'd be another rock collecting dust.
Willie: Yeah, but it would have given you your fortune and glory.
Indy: Anything can happen. It's a long way to Delhi.
Willie looks at him like he's crazy.
Willie: No, thanks. No more adventures with you, Dr. Jones.
Indy: Sweetheart, after all the fun we've had together.
Willie: If you think I'm going to Delhi with you, or anyplace else after all the trouble you've gotten me into! Think again, buster! I'm going home to Missouri, where they never feed you snakes before ripping your heart out and lowering you into hot pits! This is not my idea of a swell time.
She turns and walks toward the villagers.
Willie: (calling to a villager) Excuse me, sir? I need a guide to Delhi.
Suddenly the whip cracks and wraps around her waist. Startled, Willie looks angry as Indy reels her in, pulling her toward him and into his arms. They are about to kiss, and are suddenly drenched by a spray of water. They look up to see Short Round sitting on the baby elephant, and laughing at his joke.
Short Round: Very funny! Very funny!
Indy and Willie laugh and return to their kiss as the villagers run up and crowd around them. Short Round covers his eyes.
Short Round: Uh, oh!
