Dialogue

Mac: This ain’t going to be easy.
Indiana Jones: Not as easy as it used to be.
Mac: Well, we've been through worse.
Indiana Jones: Yah, when?
Mac: Flensburgh. There was twice as many.
Indiana Jones: We were younger.
Mac: I still am young!
Indiana Jones: We had guns. Put your hands down, will you; you're embarrassing us.
Colonel Dovchenko: You recognize building, yes?
[Indy looks over to the Russians draging away the dead American soilders they killed]
Indiana Jones: Drop dead. [Dovchenko punches him] I'm sorry, I meant drop dead comrade.

Indiana Jones: You're not from around here, are you?
Irina Spalko: And where is it you would imagine I am from... Doctor Jones?
Indiana Jones: Well the way you're sinkin your teeth into those v-ouble-u's, I should think Eastern Ukraine.

Irina Spalko: You're a hard man to read, Dr. Jones.
Indiana Jones: Ouch.
Irina Spalko: So, we will do this, what is expression? Old-fashion way. You will tell us. You will tell us.

Irina Spalko: This warehouse, where you and your government have hidden all of your secrets. Yes?
Indiana Jones: This is a military warehouse. I've never been here before in my life.

Indiana Jones: Compass? Anyone got a compass? You know, North, South, East -
Mac: West.

Irina Spalko: No defiant last words, Dr. Jones?
Indiana Jones: [sarcastically] I like Ike.
Colonel Dovchenko: Put down gun.
Indiana Jones: You got it, pal.
[Indy drops the gun and it shoots Dovchenko in the foot]

Indiana Jones: How did Deidra take the news?
Dean Charles Stanforth: How does any wife take such things... a look on her face is a combination of pride and panic.
Indiana Jones: I never should have doubted you, my friend.
Dean Charles Stanforth: No, you have reason to question your friends these days. You know, I barely recognize this country anymore; the government has us seeing communists in our soup.
Indiana Jones: Brutal couple of years, huh, Charlie? First Dad, then Marcus.
Dean Charles Stanforth: We seem to have reached the age where life stops giving us things and starts taking them away.

Mutt Williams: The name's Mutt. Mutt Williams.
Indiana Jones: Mutt? What kind of name is that?
Mutt Williams: It's the one I picked, you got a problem with that?
Indiana Jones: [calmly] Take it easy.

Indiana Jones: Who is your mother, again?
Mutt Williams: Mary, Mary Williams. You don't remember her?
Indiana Jones: There've been a lot of Marys, kid.
Mutt Williams: [punches the table] Shut up! That's my mother you're talking about, okay! That's my mother.
Indiana Jones: You don't have to get all sore all the time just to prove how tough you are. Sit down. Sit down, please.

Mutt Williams: [after Indiana has shot a native grave guard with his own poison dart and scared off a second] You're a teacher?
Indiana Jones: [shrugging] Part-time.

Mutt Williams: [combs his hair] Hm--
Indiana Jones: What are you doing? Put that thing down!

Indiana Jones: Dance on your own dime, will ya?
Mutt Williams: A scorpion just stung me, am I gonna die?
Indiana Jones: How big?
Mutt Williams: Huge!
Indiana Jones: Good.
Mutt Williams: Good?
Indiana Jones: The thing with scorpions, the bigger the better. Small one bites you, don't keep it to yourself.

[looking at the odd shaped human skulls]
Mutt Williams: Why'd they do that.
Indiana Jones: To honor the gods.
Mutt Williams: No, God's head isn't shaped like that!
Indiana Jones: Depends on who your god is.

Indiana Jones: Crystal isn't magnetic.
Mutt Williams: Neither is gold.

Indiana Jones: Careful, you may get exactly what you wish for.
Irina Spalko: I usually do.

Indiana Jones: I told you.

Indiana Jones: [to Mutt] Marion Ravenwood is your mother!
Marion Ravenwood-Williams: Oh, for God's sake, Indy! It't not that hard.
Indiana Jones: Well, I know. I just thought -
Marion Ravenwood-Williams: That I would never have a life after you left.
Indiana Jones: Well that's fine.
Marion Ravenwood-Williams: A really, really damn good life!
Indiana Jones: Well so have I!
Marion Ravenwood: Really? You still living in a trail of human wreckage or have you retired?
Indiana Jones: Why, you're looking for a date?
Marion Ravenwood: Anyone but you!
Irina Spalko: [Irina has Marion and Indiana hostage] So Dr. Jones, you will help us?
[Dovchenko cocks a pistol and points it at Marion's back]
Irina Spalko: A simple 'Yes' will do.
Indiana Jones: Oh Marion, you had to go and get yourself kidnapped.
Marion Ravenwood-Williams: Not like you did any better.
Indiana Jones: Same old, same old.

[Indy and Marion are trapped in drysand pit]
Indiana Jones: Oxley, go get help!
Harold Oxley: Help?
Indiana Jones: Help!
Harold Oxley: Help!
[Oxley leaves]
[Indiana and Marion are trapped in the sand pit]
Marion Ravenwood-Williams: [to Jones] Mutt can be a little impetuous.
Indiana Jones: Believe me, it's not the worst quality in the world. Keep your arms above your head. When the kid comes back, be ready to grab something.
Marion Ravenwood-Williams: Indy, he's...
Indiana Jones: He's a good kid, Marion. You should get off his back about school. Not everyone is cut out for it
Marion Ravenwood-Williams: Mutt, I mean, his name's Henry.
Indiana Jones: [absent-mindedly] Henry. Good name.
Marion Ravenwood-Williams: He's your son.
Indiana Jones: My son?
Marion Ravenwood: Henry Jones...III.
[Pause]
Indiana Jones: Why the hell didn't you make him finish school?!

[Mutt throws a long snake into the sand pit to save Jones]
Mutt Williams: Grab the snake!
Indiana Jones: Stop calling it that! Call it something else!
Mutt Williams: It's a snake! What do you want me to call it?!
Indiana Jones: [afraid to touch the snake] A rope!
Mutt Williams: What?
Indiana Jones: Say "grab the rope!"
Mutt Williams and Marion Ravenwood-Williams: Grab the rope!

Indiana Jones: [surrounded by Russian soldiers after getting pulled out of the sandpit by Mutt] Thanks Ox...
Harold Oxley: [points at the Russians] Help.

Marion Ravenwood-Williams: I'm sure I wasn't the only one to get with my life. There must have been plenty of women for you over the years.
Indiana Jones: There were a few, but they all had the same problem
Marion Ravenwood: Yeah? What's that?
Indiana Jones: They weren't you, honey.

Indiana Jones: [to Mutt and Marion as he climbs onto the roof of their newly captured truck] Keep driving.
Mutt Williams: Well, what's he gonna do now?
Marion Ravenwood-Williams: I don't think he plans that far ahead.
Mutt Williams: Yeah...
Indiana Jones: [pops out from the inside of the truck with a bazooka] Scooch over will ya, Son?
Mutt Williams: Don't call me 'Son'. Don't.
Indiana Jones: I think I'd cover my ears if I were you!
[Indy shoots a rocket at a giant tree cutter but it sends the large circular blade bouncing straight for them, cutting through other trucks as it goes]
Indiana Jones: Duck!

Mac: Jonesy! [Indy knocks off two Russians] Jonesy?
Indiana Jones: Hi, Mac! [punches him]

Indiana Jones: Marion, take the wheel!
Mutt Williams: That's not fair; she drove the truck!
Indiana Jones: Don't be a child - find something to fight with!

Mutt Williams: [after swinging on tree vines and landing back in the truck]: Whoa!
Indiana Jones: Whoa. [looks ahead to see a cliff] WHOA!

Indiana Jones: [to Mac, after it is revealed that he is actually working for the Russians] So, what are you, like a triple agent?
George McHale: No, I just lied about being a double agent.

Mutt Williams: What are they, like spacemen?
Harold Oxley: Interdimensional beings, in point of fact.
Indiana Jones: Welcome back, Ox.

Indiana Jones: Where did they go? Into space?
Harold Oxley: Not into space. Into the space between spaces.

Mutt Williams: I don't understand. Why the legend about the city of gold?
Indiana Jones:: Well, the Ugha word for 'gold' translates as 'treasure.' But their treasure wasn't gold, it was knowledge. Knowledge was their treasure.

Indiana Jones: Why don't you stick around, Junior?
Mutt Williams: I don't know. Why didn't you, "Dad?"
Harold Oxley: [scoffs] Dad... [gives Indy a questioning look] Dad?
Indiana Jones: [chuckles] Somewhere, your grandfather is laughing right now.
