Well the Indy Jones forum is dead, so I figured I'd take my thread here instead... everybody loves to post their favourite quotes from something every now and then, and today it's from Indiana Jones! Either the games or the movies, post em here (Or your favourite scenes).

Raiders
When he shoots the arab swordsman :D

Or when he's all beat up that time and Marion spins the mirror around and gets him on the chin.

And my favourite quote has to be "Hell, I don't know, I'm just making it up as I go."

Temple of Doom
When there are two arab swordsman, identical to the ones in Raiders, and Indy reaches for his gun but it ain't there :D

And my favourite quote ... Short Round - "I'm very little, and you cheat big, Dr Jones!"

Or that entire conversation between Willie and Indy about studying nocturnal activity XD

Last Crusade
Every scene with Indy and his dad, especially when the nazis find them both and demand that Indy hands over the diary, and his dad says, "Ha, you think my son would be stupid enough to bring it right into the lions den with him?!" or something like that, and Indy looks guiltily at his dad :D


See, I only saw the movies recently, so I'm completely new to the series :D

"No Ticket"

After he threw that Nazi out of the blimp.

Also the "We've come to view the tapestries" thing.

And I love the opening scenes to all of them: The temple full of traps, the fight in Club Obi Wan, and the Young Indy stuff (By the way if you can find copies of the Young Indy videos they released, most of them are well worth it.)

Yeah I got one on video there the other day... Phantom Train of Doom... lame name..

I was really apprehensive, didn't think I was gonna like it at all, and didn't think Sean Patrick Flanery was the right guy for Indy at all. But man, was I wrong. The idea of Young Indy and the way he is played by Sean Flanery is endearing, and the actor actually puts a lovely new spin on the character. You saw a much younger Indy who was often afraid and only just stops himself from panicking in certain situations, and is a lot more gullible and niave. You also see how certain characters from his past shaped his present self. My favourite parts from the episode I saw are....


Something is about to blow up, and Indy and team can't get out because the door is locked, and this guy comes along and says, "What are you waiting here for?! Shouldn't you be escaping!?" And Indy says, "That's what I said!"

And an amusing part was when the british guy says to Indy, "Are you making this up as you go?" And Indy says, "Uh... yeah... I am!" which was obviously a reference to Raiders :)

And when he's walking along with Belloq as his prisoner, and he's walking in front while Dutch Guy is walking behind him, and Belloq tells him never to let the prisoner walk behind you because you should always be able to see him... it's just nice to see a niave and almost stupid Indy :D

When he shoots the messenger girl off the horse, and goes to give her a hand up and she kicks him right over (not so much has changed, eh?)

And finally, when at the end, he's bartering to try and escape Belloqs troops, and he's got a gun pointed at Belloq while the troops are nearing fast, and the conversation goes something like this; (P.S. they are in the middle of a vast african desert )



Belloq: Examine each course of action you could take, and weigh up the consequences.

Indy: (Breathing heavily on the verge of panick) Right. A soldiers first duty is to carry out his orders... (referring to something Belloq said earlier) and his second duty is to survive...

Indy: But I was never given any orders, so I guess that means my first duty is to survive...

Indy: Now I could get in that 'plane and try to escape. Consequences? Your troops would shoot me down.

Indy: I might try holding you hostage. But I'm outnumbered and surrounded on both sides. Eventually they'd get me, and if I shot you they'd get me anyway. Consequences? Certain death.

Belloq: So what now, Indy? You don't have much time...

Indy: Or, I could let you go, and you could fly off in that 'plane now and order your troops to turn around...

Indy: Letting me escape.

Belloq: And how do you know you can trust me to do that, eh, Indy?

Indy: I guess I'm going to have to find out.

Belloq: Good luck, Indy. *throws him a compass*

Indy: Thanks. And consider yourself lucky we're letting you away this time.


I don't know why, but I love that damn conversation. You gotta see it :)

EDIT: It wasn't Belloq at all, but I think it was the same actor.

Ha ha, whoops, just remembered another one!

BAD GUY: Indy, Indy, Indy! Didn't the Sultan of Madagascar even threaten to have your head cut off if you returned to his country?

INDY: Ha ha ha... not my head.

BAD GUY: Well, your hands.

INDY: No, not my hands either. My, er...

my misunderstanding.

Hehe.
I just love the way in Temple of Doom when Willie is saying 'wake up Mr wake up!' and then Shorty pops up and says 'You call him Dr Jones!'.
Another favourite is Shorty's 'Hold on lady, we goin for a ride!'
I liked the Young Indy series. There was a really good one with a vampire. And my favourite is probably the one where he has to get a phone into his flat by the end of the day so that he can recieve a phone call telling him his orders for his next mission, which turns out to be 'Get a phone connected to a flat in Venice' or something.
In Crusade, Henry Jones 'Look what you did, i cant believe what you did'.
and 'She talks in her sleep'.
The part about Marcus:
Indy - 'He can speak fifty languages, knows people in every town in Africa, with any luck he's got the grail already'
Cut to Africa Marcus- 'Hello, does anybody speak English?'

I loved the entire exchange between Indy and his father when they met for the first time in the movie :D

I don't remember the 'no ticket' and 'ahhh, venice!' ones, because I missed a lot of that movie. I only saw it for the first time over christmas. Anybody care to explain those two for me?

Indy: [German Accent]I am an inspector. I am here to see the tapestries.[/German Accent]

Guard: Tapestries? Which tapestries?

Indy: [German Accent] Look, it's a big castle, a big castle with tapestries. I am here to see them.[/German Accent]

Guard: I don't believe you.

Indy (to Inga): [German Accent]How DARE he?[/German Accent] *punches guard*

no ticket!

the joneses went into this zeppelin, indy knocks this steward out and takes his clothes wile his father takes a seat in the lounge and reads a newspaper. then indy enters the lounge and sees how this nazi-guy looks for them and starts to check the passengers for the tickets. and then as the nazi stands before his father, he steps behind the nazi and says "ticket, please." the guy answers something like "crap." and indy asks again "can i see your ticket please." the nazi turns around, recognizes indy, indy punches him out of the window, all the passengers turn to indy, complete upset and stare at him, he looks "indyish" and then points out of the window (with his thumb) and says "NO TICKET!" and everybody is like "here! here! here! my ticket!!!!".

aah.. venice.

indy and dr schneider went into those catacombs beneath the library in venice. (when they found the entrance to the catacombs the "x" marked the spot and indy says "the x marks the spot" and in his lesson he said before "x never marks the spot." :) ) .. anyways they finally find the dead knight and had to dive to escape the fire and then somehow are able to leave the catacombs and all and come out through a gully located in th middle of a street cafe.. ladies are crying, the guys jump up, everybody is upset.. both, indy and dr schneider are completely wet from head to toe, everybody stares at them, indy looks around, smiling as if he enjoys the view, and finally says "aah.. venice."

Ha ha ha!!!

I found this:

HENRY
I ought to tell you something.

INDY
Don't get sentimental now Dad
save it 'til we get out of here.

HENRY
The floor's on fire! See?!

INDY
(turns and sees)
What???

HENRY
And the chair.



Henry Sr, after they rotated through the wall, escaping the fire and landing straight into a room full of nazis: Our situation has not improved




HENRY
You know, sharing your adventures
is an interesting experience.

INDY
(meaning ELSA)
That's not all we shared. It's
disgraceful. You're old enough to
be her fa---er, her grandfather!

HENRY
Well, I'm as human as the next
man.

INDY
I was the next man.




INDY
(turning; pointing)
Eleven o'clock!

HENRY pulls out his watch.

INDY
Dad eleven o'clock!!

HENRY
What happens at eleven o'clock?

INDY uses his arm to demonstrate that he's referring to a direction and not a
time.

INDY
(frustrated)
Twelve eleven ten. Eleven
o'clock. Fire!



Henry
swings the gun around, inadvertently CUTTING HIS OWN REAR STABILIZER IN HALF.

INDY
Dad, are we hit?!

HENRY
More or less.

HENRY
Son, I'm sorry. They got us.

INDY looks back at the missing tail section, then at his father.




HENRY
Oh, God. I've lost him. And I never told him anything. I just wasn't ready, Marcus. Five minutes would have been enough.




The Fedora blows over the cliff after the tank plummets to the bottom. At the end of that scene, when Indy rejoins his father at the top of the cliff, the wind blows the hat back to his feet :)





I'm going through the scripts, the movies really are funny...

I got all the Young Indy's they released on video, and despite it's name, that's one of the best. Also Masks of Evil and Tales of Innocence come to my mind instantly. Oh and the plane one, not sure what its called.

The guy who plays Young Indy is like 30 in the series. I thought he was 18-19, he comes across as being so young! Even his voice is really high!

I like Young Indy :)

hehehe i was going to quote that one.. you took me words out of me mouth.. put them back!! .. :D:D

anyways..

another good one is when the nazies recognized that there are pages missing in the diary, and indy tells them marcus has the pages and how he would know 12 languages and every local rite and will just disappear so that they will never find him <cut> marcus in iskenderun, complete lost, asking randomly around if someone speaks his language .. :D

01-30-2004, 08:27 PM
INDY
She ransacked her own room and I
fell for it. How did you know
she was a Nazi?

HENRY
Umh?

INDY
How did you she was a Nazi?

HENRY
She talks in her sleep.

INDY nods, and then the statement catches up with him. He looks at HENRY with surprise.




INDY
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.

EXT. TRAIN STATION - CITY OF ISKENDERUN - DAY

BRODY
Does anyone here speak English?
Or even ancient Greek?


BRODY
No water, no thank you. No, fish
make love in it.



BELLOQ
Why, Dr. Jones, whatever are you
doing in such a nasty place?
Belloq and the Germans laugh.

INDY
Why don't you fellows come down
here? I'll show you.





INDY
Why snakes? Why did it have to be
snakes?




MARION
The snakes...are they here?

INDY
I guess not. I think I'd be dead.

MARION
Do you know where you're going?

INDY
Absolutely.

MARION
Thank god. Where?

INDY
Out.




SHORT ROUND
Come here, lady, hold this and
shut up please!






I don't think this scene was in the movie, as I don't remember seeing it, but this is from the original script of Temple of Doom and it's funny as hell! Willie is bathing in a river, nude:


INDIANA
Hey, Willie -- I think you better
get out now.

WILLIE
Stark naked? You wish... If you're
trying to seduce me, Dr. Jones,
this is a very primitive approach.

INDIANA
Me seduce you? Honey, you're the
one who took your clothes off.
(shrugging)
I just came over to remind you
that you never know what else
might be in the water.

WILLIE
Somehow I feel safer in here.

As Indy turns and starts off, Willie reaches up to the tree
branch above her head and grabs her underwear. At this moment we notice something awful:

A BOA CONSTRICTOR is moving out along the branch, the enormous snake slithering over Willie's clothes.
Willie watches Indiana walk away as she reaches up for her dress
-- her hands feel something strange -- not the dress and not the
tree limb --
Willie looks up and sees that she's pulling on a snake! She
SCREAMS as the boa constrictor falls off the t-ee on top of her!
Indy hears the scream and hears Willie calling to him. He runs
back toward the river.

Stopping on the riverbank, he sees Willie
backing away in the water -- Indiana's already starting to pull
his boots off --

WILLIE
Indy! Help me!

INDIANA
Don't worry, I'm coming in! What
is it?

WILLIE
A snake!

Suddenly Indiana freezes and a strange look corsses his face --

INDIANA
A what...?

WILLIE
A SNAKE!!

He finally sees the boa constrictor thrashing in the water close
to Willie. He leaves his boots on.

WILLIE (Cont'd)
Hurry, help me out of here!
What're you waiting for?!

INDIANA
Uh, listen -- Willie -- I got a
better idea.

WILLIE
What?!

INDIANA
First of all -- don't panic!

Willie suddenly screams as the boa constrictor wraps around her arm --

WILLIE
It's got me ! Indy, help me!

Indy runs along the riverbank, trying to get closer to her, but
not about to jump into the river (due to his aversion to snakes
-- see Episode One: "Raiders of the Lost Ark").

INDIANA
Don't let it pull you deeper!

WILLIE
It's pulling me deeper!

INDIANA
Don't let it curl around you!

WILLIE
It's curling around me! Damn it,
stop talking and do something!

The snake is wrapping around her body and neck -- her head is
barely above water --
On the riverbank, Indy reaches down and grabs a piece of wood.
But as he watches the repulsive reptile, he starts to sweat and
his fear and loathing overpower him --

WILLIE (Cont'd)
What's wrong?! Indy please help
me!

Indy groans and bolsters his courage -- he takes two steps into the water -- but the complex is to strong and he can't go any
further. He drops the piece of wood...

INDIANA
Listen, Willie. Do exactly what
I tell you now.

WILLIE
What?!

INDIANA
Can you move your arm?

WILLIE
Just one arm!

INDIANA
Okay, I want you to lift your hand --
and pet the snake.

WILLIE
PET IT??!!

INDIANA
Yes, stroke it right along the
maxillary and precaudal verte-
brae.

WILLIE
THE WHAT?!

INDIANA
Pet it on the head! Go on, pet
it!

In the water, Willie is whimpering as she lifts her hand and
starts petting the snake coiling around her pale body.

WILLIE
Oh -- my -- god -- it's going to
crush me!

INDIANA
Keep stroking it!

Willie keeps rubbing her hand along the snakes head and back and it slowly stops thrashing in the water.

INDIANA (Cont'd)
What's happening?

WILLIE
It's starting to let go!

INDIANA
That's good -- you're doing fine.

Grimacing as she stares at the ugly serpent's head, Willie keeps stroking it.

WILLIE
It's letting fo. I think it's --
I think it's going to sleep!

Indiana looks relieved. He sees the snake starting to drift away
from Willie and she starts paddling back to shore, collecting her
floating clothes along the way.
Holding her dripping dress against herself, she walks out of the
water toward Indy who smiles at her weakly.

INDIANA
See -- I got you out...

She slows and hauls off and punches him in the mouth. Indy holds his jaw as she walks away infuriates.


Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha XD

(Sorry I don't have the script)

HENRY:Really?
INDY: Are you kidding? This guy once got lost in his own lost museam.


In the Last Crusade game, there was a joke about " Don't ask"
Its said like 20 times. Near the end, Indy says," Whats going on?AND DON'T SAY DON'T ASK!!!


But my favourite quote is one you already listed.

Henry: The floors on fire.

INDY: WHAT?

Henry: And the chair.
(they swing into the Nazi planning room)

Henry: Our situation has not improved.

Yufster
01-30-2004, 10:01 PM
I really don't think Sean Connery could have delivered that line any more perfectly! They'd gone straight from a burning inferno into a room full of armed Nazis, and the way he said it was just... awesome.

Our situation has not improved.

Ha ha ha!

Also in that scene I didn't see... the one with the snake strangling willie... I could picture the scene as I was reading it, and the way he was taking off his boots and he yells, "I'm coming in!" until she said, "Snake!" And then he just freezes... and his next line is, "Wait, I got a better idea. Don't panic!"

Ha ha ha ha ha!

I love these goddamn scripts.



And I have to applaud George Lucas for this bit of writing which is just pure genius:

a fissure appears beneath Indy's feet and a small line of crimson lava oozes out and smiles evilly across the floor...


That evilly smiling lava....


This was cut from the movie I think, but in Temple of Doom when Indy is freeing the children...


INDIANA (O.S.)
Ah, sir? Excuse me --

The guard turns and looks amazed to see Indy smiling at him from the mouth of the tunnel.

INDIANA (Cont'd)
Listen, I'm from the union and I'd
like to talk about the working
conditions here. Could you step
inside a minute?

'Im selling these fine leather jackets'
is from one of the games isnt it. Not a film. I like that though.

Colonels fist flies back into Marcus face knocking him off of the tank.

Henry: I didnt know you could fly planes.
Indy: Fly yes... Land no.

Disturbingly, I read an actual interview with Harrison Ford who said there was one scene where all his ex's showed up and I quote the actor himself when I say. "It's probably going to be the best scene in the movie."

Oh, what hope is there for the future now...?

Skinkie
02-03-2004, 01:59 AM
Hey I'm waiting for this movie and praying that it'll be awesome. I read that instead of using CG effects, they're gonna use as many of the old tricks from the original trilogy as possible. It gives me hope.

Yufster
02-05-2004, 06:29 PM
I was hoping that. I hoped they weren't just gonna fill it with 'awesome' CG effects and stop motion. I'd rather raw action, damn it! Let's smash some knees and staple some fedoras!

In other news... I like this part, where Young Indy can't find any of the other scouts and he shouts for them but they don't answer, and he says, "I can't believe it, everybody's lost but me!!!"

Alien426
02-05-2004, 06:50 PM
Well, all the good scenes and quotes were written about, so I'll mention the scene where Toht enters the tent with Belloq and Marion. He takes out some elaborate torture device that looks like a nunchaku and folds it into a deadly... coat-hanger. I also like the way he says "We are... not thirsty". What a creep.

I love when he's after killing/evading all those nazis, and Indy is laughing ecstatically and he looks proudly at his dad, seeking his congratulations, and instead his Dad looks at him, totally unimpressed, and Indy looks disappointed XD

I loved all the scenes between father and son

Skinkie
02-06-2004, 01:53 AM
I love the Raiders of the Lost Arc, and the Last Crusade scenes, you know... all of them, most of the Temple of Doom too. We've used up so many, that I'm being forced to broaden the range.
