Quotes

Short Round: Wow! Holy Smoke! Crash landing!

Indiana Jones: Short Round, step on it.

Short Round: Okey dokey, Dr. Jones.

[turns his cap around]

Short Round: Hold on to your potatoes!

Willie: For crying out loud, there's a *kid* driving the car!

Indiana Jones: Willie, Willie, Willie. What kind of a name is that? Is it short for something?

Willie: Willie is my professional name, Indiana.

Short Round: Hey, lady! You call him Dr. Jones!

Indiana Jones: *My* professional name.

Indiana Jones: [groping desperately down Willie's dress] Where's the antidote?

Willie: Oh, listen, I just met you! Oh, I'm not that kind of girl...

Short Round: Hey, Dr. Jones, no time for love. We've got company.

Indiana Jones: Mola Ram! Prepare to meet Kali... in Hell!

Indiana Jones: Kali Ma protects us! We are her children! We pledge our devotion to her with an offering of flesh... and blood!

Sacrifice Victim: Om Namha Shivaye, Om Namha Shivaye, Om Namha Shivaye...

[Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God... ]

Indiana Jones: [trapped on a rope bridge] Shorty!

[Indy shouts to Shorty in Chinese. Short Round, wide-eyed, nods and wraps a rope around his arm]

Short Round: Hang on lady, we going for a ride!

[Indy raises his sword, and Willie realizes]

Willie: Oh... my... God! Oh my God... Oh my God...

[wraps a rope around her arm]

Willie: Is he nuts?

Short Round: He no nuts, he's crazy!

Indiana Jones: Wear your jewels to bed Princess?

Willie: Yeah... and nothing else. Shock you?

Indiana Jones: Nothing shocks me. I'm a scientist.

Willie: You're gonna get killed chasing after your damn fortune and glory!

Indiana Jones: Maybe. But not today.

[Indy signals his intention to cut the rope bridge]

Willie: Oh my God. Oh my God, is he nuts?

Short Round: He no nuts, he's crazy!

[Indy threatens to drop the Sankara stones into the gorge]

Indiana Jones: You want the stones, let 'em go!

[the Thuggees stop, uncertain. Willie smirks at Mola Ram]

Indiana Jones: Let 'em go!

Mola Ram: [laughs] Drop them, Dr. Jones! They will be found! You won't!

Willie: THAT'S the maharaja? A *kid*?

Short Round: Maybe he likes *older* women.

Eel Eater: Ah, dessert! Chilled monkey brains.

Chattar Lal: Dr. Jones, in our country, it's not usual for a guest to insult his host.

Shaman of Maypore: Now you see the power of the rock you bring back.

Indiana Jones: Yes. I understand its power now.

[Willie accidentally sets off the same trap she just sprang]

Short Round: It wasn't me! It's her!

Willie: [being lowered over a sacrificial pit] I'm not going to have anything nice to say about this place when I get back!

Willie: There are two dead people in here!

Indiana Jones: There's gonna be two dead people in here! Hurry!

Indiana Jones: Willie, we-are-going-to-DIE!

Willie: I hate the water... and I hate being wet... and I hate you!

Indiana Jones: [after listening to Mola Ram's plans] What a vivid imagination.

Indiana Jones: [trapped in the middle of the rope bridge] Oh, shit.

Indiana Jones: We weren't brought here. Our plane crashed.

Willie: [nodding and smiling] It crashed.

Shaman of Maypore: [laughing] No, no, no. We prayed to Shiva to help us find the stone. It was Shiva who made you fall from sky. So you will go to Pankot Palace... and find Shivalinga... and bring back to us. Bring back to us. Bring back to us.

Mola Ram: The British in India will be slaughtered. Then we will overrun the Moslems and force their "Allah" to bow to Kali. And then the Hebrew God will fall and finally the Christian God will be cast down and forgotten.

Mola Ram: Bali Mangthi Kali Ma.

[Sacrifice is what Mother Kali desires]

Mola Ram: Shakthi Degi Kali Ma.

[Power is what Mother Kali will grant]

Mola Ram: Kali ma... Kali ma... Kali ma, shakthi deh!

[Mother Kali... Mother Kali... Mother Kali, give me power!]

Mola Ram: [before Indy is whipped] Maro maro suar ko! Chamdi neecho peelo koon!

[strike and strike that pig again! Tear his skin and drink his blood!]

Mola Ram: [after tearing out victim's heart] Ab, uski jan meri mutti me hai! AB, USKI JAN MERI MUTTI ME HAI!

[Now, his life is in my fist! NOW, HIS LIFE IS IN MY FIST!]

Indiana Jones: Are you trying to develop a sense of humor or am I going deaf?

Willie: So what are you supposed to be, a lion tamer?

Indiana Jones: I'm allowing you to tag along. So why don't you give your mouth a rest. Okay doll?

Indiana Jones: Oh, yeah?

Willie: No, thanks. No more adventures with you, Dr. Jones.

Indiana Jones: Sweetheart, after all the fun we've had together?

Willie: If you think I'm going to Delhi with you, or anyplace else after all the trouble you've gotten me into, think again, buster! I'm going home to Missouri where they never feed you snakes before ripping your heart out and lowering you into hot pits! This is NOT my idea of a swell time!

[to native]

Willie: Excuse me, sir. I need a guide to Delhi. If you could...

[Indy snaps his whip around Willie's waist and pulls her back]
