Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
Belloq: The girl was mine!
Dietrich: She's of no use to us. Only your mission for the Führer matters.

Katanga: Jones is dead. I killed him. He was of no use to us. This girl, however, has certain value where we're headed. She'll bring a very fine price. Herr Colonel - that cargo you've taken - if it's your goal, go in peace with it, but leave us the girl. It will reduce our loss on this trip.
Dietrich: Savage! You are not in a position to ask for anything. We will take what we wish, and then decide whether or not to blow your ship from the water.

[Belloq and the Nazis are walking and arguing]
Belloq: I told you not to be premature in your communique to Berlin. Archeology is not an exact science. It does not deal in time schedules!
Dietrich: The Fuhrer is not a patient man. He demands constant reports. You led me to believe...
Belloq: [interrupting him] Nothing! I made no promises! I merely said it looked very favorable. Besides, with the information in our possession, my calculations were correct.

[Belloq and the Nazis are walking and talking some more]
Belloq: Who knows. Perhaps the Ark is still waiting in some antechamber for us to discover. Perhaps there's some vital bit of evidence which eludes us. Perhaps...
Gobler: [interrupting him] Perhaps the girl can help us.
Dietrich: My feeling exactly. She was in possession of the original piece for years. She may know much if... properly motivated.
Belloq: I tell you the girl knows nothing.
Dietrich: I am surprised to find you squeamish. That is not your reputation. Anyway, it needn't concern you. I have the perfect man for this kind of work.
[Toht approaches]
Toht: Heil Hitler.

[Looking over the destruction of the airfield]
Dietrich: Get the Ark away from this place immediately! Have it put on the truck! We will fly it out of Cairo! And Gobler, I want plenty of protection!
Gobler: Jawohl, Herr Ob...
[Gobler is interrupted midsentence by an explosion]
Belloq: [to himself] Jones!

Dietrich: Doctor Jones, surely you don't think you can escape from this island?
Indiana: That depends on how reasonable we're all willing to be. All I want is the girl.
Dietrich: [looks at Belloq. Belloq shakes his head] And if we refuse?
Indiana: Then your Führer has no prize.
