Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: [to his great-grandson Harry] You want to know something about cranberry sauce? When I was a little boy, I was in China.
Annie Jones: You were in China when you were a little boy?
Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: Sure. I was just a little bit older than you are now.
Annie Jones: That must have been a long time ago.
Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: [the family laughs politely] Yes, it was.
Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: Well, long, long ago, in a far away land known as the Middle Kingdom, my father, your great great grandfather, was going to work in the great city of Peking, with the famous Chinese scholar and translator Yen Fu. My mother and my tutor, Miss Seymour were determined to see the sights of China. They thought I should see them too. I didn't mind that.
Professor Henry Jones, Sr.: Anna, I'm still not happy about you going off on this joint by yourself. You know you're not fully recovered.
Anna Jones: Oh nonsense. I was over the fever a week ago. I would have you know that American ladies are renowned for the strength of their constitution.
Li: [about the Great Wall of China] They say that in some places, a man died for every yard of the wall.
Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: Wow. Must be the longest graveyard in the world.
Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: No... you know, Miss Seymour. I think it's more important to learn the language of a country than it is the history.
Miss Seymour: You mean you haven't learned them.
Li: A man does not act without thinking. Everything in nature depends upon balance. Action must be controlled by knowledge.
Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: Mr. Li, what's the Chinese word for mother?
Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: Hey, ma!
Anna Jones: Oh Henry, you know how much I dislike it when you call me that.
Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: It's Chinese.
Li: No, not quite. I'm afraid you called your gracious mother a horse.
Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: Mom, am I gonna die like Suzy?
Anna Jones: Why Henry, of course not, your sister was very ill. And she was never very strong.
Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: Now she's in heaven with grandpa.
Anna Jones: Hm-hm.
Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: Am I gonna die and go to heaven?
Anna Jones: One day. But not yet.
Li: [translating for Dr. When Ch-iu] Yin and Yang are the two opposites which control the universe and thus the human body.
Li: [Dr. When Ch-iu continues in Chinese] Yin is moist, weak, feminine, Yang is strong, dry, masculine.
Li: [Dr. When Ch-iu continues in Chinese] These two must be in harmony for how can their be spring without autumn or summer without winter?
Anna Jones: I am Mrs. Henry Jones. This is a fine gentleman. And his wife is a great lady.
[Mr. Li translates her words]
Anna Jones: I owe them a debt of many thousands of dollars. And never once have they reminded me of that debt. Huang Feng, do not let me leave your house without allowing me to give you just a small token of what I owe you.
Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: [narrating] My mother was quite a lady. After she send the landlord packing, she bought chickens for Huang Feng, and we had a grand dinner. I best believe that was the best Thanksgiving feast I ever attended.
Annie Jones: What's that got to do with cranberry sauce?
Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr.: Not a lot. Here, Harry, why don't you try some. You'll probably find, like me, that you hate it.
