Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
[Marion is being kidnapped]
Marion: You can't do this to me, I'm an AMERICAN.

Indiana: Here, take this,
[hands Marion a torch]
Indiana: Wave it at anything that slithers.
Marion: The whole place is slitherin'!
[turns and mistakes Indy's whip on his side for a snake]
Marion: Indy!
[tries to burn it with the torch]
Indiana: [screams]

Marion: Well, Jones, at least you haven't forgotten how to show a lady a good time.
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.

Indiana: I can only say I'm sorry so many times.
Marion: Well, say it again anyway!
Indiana: Sorry.

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!

Toht: Good evening, Fraulein.
Marion: The bar's closed.
Toht: We are... hehe... not thirsty.

Marion: What do you want?
Toht: Ah, the same thing your friend Dr. Jones wanted. Surely he mentioned there would be other interested parties?
Marion: Must have slipped his mind.
Toht: The man is nefarious. I hope for your sake that he has not yet acquired it.
Marion: Why, are you willing to offer more?
Toht: Oh, almost certainly. Do you still have it?
Marion: [blows smoke in his face] No.

[talking about Marion's late father]
Marion: He said you were a bum.
Indiana: Aw, he's being generous.
Marion: The most gifted bum he ever trained. You know, he loved you like a son... took a hell of a lot for you to alienate him.
Indiana: Not much... just you.

[Toht prepares to torture Marion with a hot poker]
Marion: Wait, wait! I can be reasonable!
Toht: That time has passed.
Marion: You don't need that. I'll tell you everything!
Toht: Yes, I know you will.

Toht: Your fire is dying... here, why don't you tell me where the piece is right now?
Marion: Listen, Herr Mac, I don't know what kind of people you're used to dealing with, but nobody tells me what to do in my place.
Toht: Fräulein Ravenwood, let me show you what I am used to...

[Marion and Belloq are both very drunk]
Marion: [laughs] What is this stuff, Rene?
Belloq: [laughing as well] I grew up on this. It's my family label.
[Marion falls to the ground laughing, then calmly pulls out the knife she was concealing and points it at Belloq, who bursts out laughing in response]
Marion: [laughs] We-he-he-ell, I have to be going now, Rene.
Belloq: [flicking his hand and laughing] Ta-ta.
Marion: [walking off] I like you, Rene, very much. Perhaps we'll meet again under better circumstances.

[last lines]
Marion: Hey, what happened? You don't look very happy.
Indiana: Fools. Bureaucratic fools!
Marion: What'd they say?
Indiana: They don't know what they've got there.
Marion: Well, I know what I've got here. Come on. I'll buy you a drink. You know, a drink?

[Marion removes heavy robe to reveal satin negligèe]
Indiana: Where'd you get that?
Marion: From him.
Indiana: Who 'him'?
Marion: Katanga. I got a feeling I'm not the first woman to travel with these pirates.

[Indiana falls asleep while kissing her]
Marion: We never seem to get a break, do we?

Indiana: Do we need the monkey?
Marion: I'm surprised at you. Talking that way about our baby. He's got your looks, too.
Indiana: And your brains.
Marion: Yes she does! She's very smart.

Marion Ravenwood: Indy, he...
Indiana Jones: He's a good kid, Marion. You should get off his back about school.
Marion Ravenwood: Mutt, I mean...
Indiana Jones: Not everybody is cut out for it.
Marion Ravenwood: His name is Henry!
Indiana Jones: Henry. Good name.
Marion Ravenwood: He's your son.
Indiana Jones: My son?
Marion Ravenwood: Henry Jones the III.
Indiana Jones: [beat] Why the hell didn't you make him finish school?

Mutt Williams: What's he gonna do now?
Marion Ravenwood: 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 you, Son?

[Indy fires 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]

Professor 'Ox' Oxley: A portal! A pathway to another dimension!
Indiana Jones: I don't think we want to go that way.

Mutt Williams: [as Indy sinks in a quicksand-esque substance, he is passed a long snake] Grab on. It's a rat snake!
Indiana Jones: Rat snakes aren't that big.
Mutt Williams: Well, this one is, all right? It's not even poisonous. Now grab on!
Indiana Jones: Go get something else.
Mutt Williams: Like what?
Indiana Jones: Like a rope or something.
Mutt Williams: There's no Sears and Roebuck here! Grab the snake!
Indiana Jones: Maybe I can touch the bottom.
Marion Ravenwood: There's no bottom. Now grab it.
Indiana Jones: I think I can feel it with my feet
Mutt Williams: Grab the snake!
Indiana Jones: Stop calling it that!
Mutt Williams: It's a snake! What do you want me to call it?
Indiana Jones: Say "rope."
Mutt Williams: What?
Indiana Jones: Say "Grab the rope"!
Mutt Williams, Marion Ravenwood: Grab the rope!

Marion Ravenwood: You still living a trail of human wreckage, or have you retired?
Indiana Jones: Why? You looking for a date?
Marion Ravenwood: With anyone but you.

Marion Ravenwood: No, sweetheart! Collin was your step father. We started dating 3 months after you were born! He was a good man!
Indiana Jones: Wait... wait... wait a minute! Collin? As in Collin Williams? Ha! You, you married him? I introduced you!
Marion Ravenwood: I think you gave up your vote on who I married, when you decided to break it off a week before the wedding!
Indiana Jones: You and I both knew Marion, that it wasn't gonna work out!
Marion Ravenwood: Then why didn't you ever talk to me about it?
Indiana Jones: Because, we never had an argument I won!
Dovchenko: Oh, for the love of God! Shut the hell up!

Marion Ravenwood: [Dovchenko gags Marions mouth] You vanished, after that!
Indiana Jones: I wrote!
Marion Ravenwood: A year later! By then, Mutt was born, and I was married!

Indiana Jones: I have to return it!
Marion Ravenwood: Why you?
Indiana Jones: Because it told me to!

Marion Ravenwood: [Indy cuts Marion loose, and removes gag] I'm sure I wasn't the only person to go on with my life. There must have been plenty of women for you over the years.

Marion Ravenwood: [Indy is still ignored] Young man, I specifically told you...
Indiana Jones: ...your mother?
Marion Ravenwood: [still ignores Indy] ... not to come down here.
Indiana Jones: Marion Ravenwood is your mother?
Marion Ravenwood: [ignores him once more] I should've known Jones would drag you into this.
Indiana Jones: Marion Ravenwood is your mother?
Marion Ravenwood: [stops ignoring him] For cryin' out loud, Jones, is it so hard to figure out?

Marion Ravenwood: Get your hands off me, you rotten Russky son of a bitch!
