Indiana Jones: Captain Blumburtt was just telling me something of the interesting history of the palace; the importance it played in the mutiny.

Chattar Lal: It seems the British never forget the mutiny of 1857.

[Captain Blumburtt laughs]

Indiana Jones: Yes, well you know I think there were other events before the mutiny going back a century - back to the time of Clive that are more interesting.

Chattar Lal: And what events are those Dr Jones?

Indiana Jones: Well, if memory serves me correctly this area, this province was the centre eventuity of the Thuggee.

Chattar Lal: Dr Jones, you know perfectly well that the Thuggee cult has been dead for nearly a century.

Captain Blumburtt: Yes, of course. The Thuggee was an obscenity that worshipped Kali with human sacrifices. The British Army Knights did away with them.

Indiana Jones: Well, I suppose stories of the Thuggee die hard.

Chattar Lal: There are no stories anymore.

Indiana Jones: I'm not so sure. We came from a small village; peasants there told us Pankot Palace was growing powerful again because of some ancient evil.

Chattar Lal: Village stories, Dr Jones. They're just fear and folklore; you're beginning to worry Captain Blumburtt.

Captain Blumburtt: Not worried, Mr Prime Minister, just erm... just erm... interested.

Indiana Jones: You know, the villagers also told us Pankot Palace had taken something.

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

Indiana Jones: I'm sorry. I thought we were talking about folklore.

Captain Blumburtt: What exactly was it they say was stolen?

Indiana Jones: A sacred rock.

Chattar Lal: [he laughs dismissively] Hah! You see, Captain? A rock.

Indiana Jones: Something connected - the villager's rock and the old legend of the Sankara stones.

Chattar Lal: Dr Jones, we're all vulnerable to vicious rumour. I seem to remember that in Honduras you were accused of being a grave robber rather than an archaeologist.

Indiana Jones: Well, the newspapers greatly exaggerated the incident.

Chattar Lal: And wasn't it the Sultana Madagascar who threatened to cut your head off if you ever returned to his country?

Indiana Jones: No, it wasn't my head.

Chattar Lal: Then your hands, perhaps?

Indiana Jones: No, it wasn't my hands... it was my

[looks downward]

Indiana Jones: ... misunderstanding.
