Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) Poster

Julian Glover: Walter Donovan



  • Elsa : It's perfectly obvious where the pages are. He's given them to Marcus Brody.

    Professor Henry Jones : Marcus? You didn't drag poor Marcus along did you? He's not up to the challenge.

    Walter Donovan : He sticks out like a sore thumb. We'll find him.

    Indiana Jones : The hell you will. He's got a two day head start on you, which is more than he needs. Brody's got friends in every town and village from here to the Sudan, he speaks a dozen languages, knows every local custom, he'll blend in, disappear, you'll never see him again. With any luck, he's got the grail already.

    [Cut to middle of fair in the Middle East, Marcus Brody wearing bright suit and white hat, sticking out like sore thumb] 

    Marcus Brody : Uhhh, does anyone here speak English?

  • Walter Donovan : However, your highness, we would not think of crossing your soil without your permission, nor of removing the Grail from your borders without suitable compensation.

    Sultan : What have you brought?

    Colonel Vogel : Bring den Schatz!

    [two German soldiers place a chest containing golden treasures in front of the Sultan] 

    Walter Donovan : Precious valuables, your highness. Donated by some of the finest families in all of Germany.

    [the Sultan turns and walks away before Donovan finishes speaking. He walks up to their staff car, a Rolls-Royce] 

    Sultan : Rolls-Royce Phantom II. 4.3 litre, 30 horsepower, six cylinder engine, with Stromberg downdraft carburettor, can go from zero to 100 kilometres an hour in 12.5 seconds. And I even like the color.

    Walter Donovan : The keys are in the ignition, your highness.

    Sultan : You shall have camels, horses, an armed escort, provisions, desert vehicles and tanks.

  • [Donovan wants Indy to get the Grail] 

    Walter Donovan : You could go down in history.

    Indiana Jones : As what? A Nazi stooge like you?

    Walter Donovan : The Nazis? Is that the limit of your vision? The Nazis want to write themselves into the Grail legend, take on the world. Well, they're welcome to it. But I want the Grail itself, the cup that gives everlasting life. Hitler can have the world, but he can't take it with him. I'm going to be drinking my own health after he's gone the way of the dodo.

  • Walter Donovan : As you can now see, Dr. Jones, we are on the verge of completing a quest that began almost two thousand years ago. We're just one step away.

    Indiana Jones : That's usually when the ground falls out from underneath your feet.

  • Walter Donovan : Find the man and you'll find the Grail.

    Indiana Jones : You've got the wrong Jones, Mr. Donovan. Why don't you try my father?

    Walter Donovan : We already have. Your father is the man who has disappeared.

  • Walter Donovan : [points a gun at Indy]  The Grail is mine. And you're going to get it for me.

    Indiana Jones : Shooting me won't get you anywhere.

    Walter Donovan : You know something, Dr. Jones? You're absolutely right.

    [He shoots Henry in the stomach] 

  • [Vogel has captured Henry] 

    Walter Donovan : Colonel. Jones is getting away.

    Colonel Vogel : I think not, Herr Donovan.

    Walter Donovan : Not THAT Jones, the OTHER Jones.

  • Walter Donovan : [Elsa selects the gaudiest cup in the Grail Chamber, for Donovan]  This is indeed the cup of the King of Kings.

    [He drinks from the "Grail", and proceeds to age rapidly] 

    Walter Donovan : What's happening to me?

    [Panicked, he grabs Elsa while transforming into a hideous aberration. Elsa screams in horror as Donovan becomes a skeletal monstrosity, which Indy wrenches away from her. Donovan is thrown backward and reduced to a cloud of dust, which drafts carry from the chamber] 

    Grail Knight : He chose... poorly.

  • Walter Donovan : Germany has declared war on the Jones boys.

  • Walter Donovan : Well, Marcus, we're on the verge of the greatest discovery in the history of mankind.

    Marcus Brody : And you're meddling with powers you can't possibly comprehend.

  • Professor Henry Jones : [to Indy]  Well, I didn't trust her. Why did you?

    Walter Donovan : Because he didn't take my advice. Didn't I tell you not to trust anyone, Dr. Jones?

  • Walter Donovan : Care to wet your whistle Marcus?

    Marcus Brody : I'd rather spit in your face. But as I haven't got any spit...

    [takes the flasks, but it is grabbed by Vogel before he can take a sip] 

  • Walter Donovan : I trust your trip down was comfortable, Dr Jones. My men didn't alarm you, I hope.

  • Walter Donovan : Enjoy this Mr. Brody. You're about to witness the best discoveries in the history of mankind.

    Marcus Brody : You're meddling with powers you can't possibly comprehend.

  • Colonel Vogel : Dr. Schneider, message from Berlin. You must return immediately. A rally at the Institute of Aryan Culture.

    Elsa : So?

    Colonel Vogel : Your presence on the platform is requested at the highest level.

    Elsa : Thank you, Herr Oberst. I will meet you at Inskenderun.

    Walter Donovan : Take this diary to the Reichsmuseum in Berlin. It will show them our progress, ahead of schedule. Without the map, I'm afraid it's no better than a souvenir.

  • Walter Donovan : [to Indy, after shooting Henry]  You can't save him when you're dead. The healing power of the Grail is the only thing that can save your father now. It's time ask yourself what you believe.
