Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
Walter Donovan: Germany has declared war on the Jones boys.

Elsa: It's perfectly obvious where the pages are. He's given them to Marcus Brody.
Professor Henry Jones: Marcus? You didn't drag poor Marcus along did you? He's not up to the challenge.
Walter Donovan: He sticks out like a sore thumb. We'll find him.
Indiana Jones: 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.
[Cut to middle of fair in the Middle East, Marcus Brody wearing bright suit and white hat, sticking out like sore thumb]
Marcus Brody: Uhhh, does anyone here speak English?

Walter Donovan: Well, Marcus, we're on the verge of the greatest discovery in the history of mankind.
Marcus Brody: And you're meddling with powers you can't possibly comprehend.

Walter Donovan: Find the man and you'll find the Grail.
Indiana Jones: You've got the wrong Jones, Mr. Donovan. Why don't you try my father?
Walter Donovan: We already have. Your father is the man who has disappeared.

[Vogel has captured Henry]
Walter Donovan: Colonel. Jones is getting away.
Colonel Vogel: I think not, Herr Donovan.
Walter Donovan: Not THAT Jones, the OTHER Jones.

Professor Henry Jones: [to Indy] Well, I didn't trust her. Why did you?
Walter Donovan: Because he didn't take my advice. Didn't I tell you not to trust anyone, Dr. Jones?

Walter Donovan: As you can now see, Dr. Jones, we are on the verge of completing a quest that began almost two thousand years ago. We're just one step away.
Indiana Jones: That's usually when the ground falls out from underneath your feet.

[Donovan wants Indy to get the Grail]
Walter Donovan: You could go down in history.
Indiana Jones: As what? A Nazi stooge like you?
Walter Donovan: The Nazis? Is that the limit of your vision? The Nazis want to write themselves into the Grail legend, take on the world. Well, they're welcome to it. But I want the Grail itself, the cup that gives everlasting life. Hitler can have the world, but he can't take it with him. I'm going to be drinking my own health after he's gone the way of the dodo.

Walter Donovan: [points a gun at Indy] The Grail is mine. And you're going to get it for me.
Indiana Jones: Shooting me won't get you anywhere.
Walter Donovan: You know something, Dr. Jones? You're absolutely right.
[He shoots Henry in the stomach]

Walter Donovan: Care to wet your whistle Marcus?
Marcus Brody: I'd rather spit in your face. But as I haven't got any spit...
[takes the flasks, but it is grabbed by Vogel before he can take a sip]

Walter Donovan: I trust your trip down was comfortable, Dr Jones. My men didn't alarm you, I hope.

Walter Donovan: Enjoy this Mr. Brody. You're about to witness the best discoveries in the history of mankind.
Marcus Brody: You're meddling with powers you can't possibly comprehend.
