Turkish adjutant: Beersheba has no need of extra troops, General. She has the greatest ally of all: the desert.
Indiana Jones: [about the rugby match] Too bad I got pounded by British artillery. Now I know how the Turks feel.
T.E. Lawrence: There's a well at Beersheba called the well of Abraham.
Indiana Jones: Do you think Abraham used it?
T.E. Lawrence: Bible says that he brought his flocks out of the desert and watered them there, which in a way is what you have to do.
Indiana Jones: Only I'm no Abraham, and those soldiers aren't sheep.
T.E. Lawrence: Well some of the generals think they are.
Indiana Jones: What's it like, the desert?
T.E. Lawrence: It's like nowhere else on this Earth. It's the most terrible place there is. And the most wonderful.
Indiana Jones: This is a pretty good rabbit.
Jack Anders: Oh, it's nothing compared to what we got in Australia. In Australia we've got rabbita as big as kangaroos.
Indiana Jones: Really?
Jack Anders: And kangaroos as big as horses.
Indiana Jones: As big as horses, is that right?
Jack Anders: My old man saw one once, big as an elephant...
Indiana Jones: An elephant? You don't say.
Jack Anders: Well, If you'd ever been to Australia, you'd know what I was talking about.
Indiana Jones: Well actually, I have been to Australia and the kangaroos they looked pretty normal sized to me.
Greasy man: We are merciful men. You may go.
Indiana Jones: [posing as a traveling salesman] Oh, praise be from Allah, lord.
Greasy man: But you must pay for the water.
Indiana Jones: Yes lord, anything
Greasy man: We will take one camel.
Indiana Jones: One camel, lord, I am honored.
Greasy man: And the woman.
Indiana Jones: And the woman?
Greasy man: Now go!
Indiana Jones: [stuttering] Lord, lord, no, I, I she is lazy. She is the worst of our kind. She is good for nothing. Lord, she brings my life nothing but misery.
Greasy man: [laughs] Then you will be happy to be rid of her.
Maya: [Indy has turned around to ride towards Maya] You're going the wrong way.
Indiana Jones: What happened? How did you get away from those Arabs?
Maya: Don't ask.
Schiller: This heat is unbearable.
Col. Ismet Bey: Imagine how much more unbearable it must be for those out in the desert...
Maya: You know this is a very famous well.
Indiana Jones: I know. The well of Abraham. He was the father of the Jewish people.
Indiana Jones: Abraham was also the father of the Arab people.
