Belloq: Doctor Jones. Again, we see there is nothing you can possess which I cannot take away. And you thought I'd given up. You chose the wrong friends, this time it will cost you.
Jones: [reluctantly hands the idol to Belloq] Too bad the Hovitos... don't know you the way I do, Belloq.
Belloq: Yes, too bad. You could warn them... if only you spoke Hovitos.


Belloq: Why, Doctor Jones, whatever are you doing in such a nasty place?
Jones: Why don't you come on down here, I'll show ya.
Belloq: Thank you my friend, but I think we are all very comfortable up here. [looks at the men around him] That's right, isn't it? Yes, we are all very comfortable up here. So once again, Jones, what was briefly yours is now mine. What a fitting end to your life's pursuits. You're about to become a permanent addition to this archaeological find. Who knows, in a thousand years even you may be worth something!
Jones: Ha ha ha! [under his breath] Son of a bitch.
Colonel Dietrich: I'm afraid we must be going now, Doctor Jones. Our prize is awaited in Berlin. But we do not wish to leave you in such an awful place all alone...

Brody: They want you to get ahold of the Ark before the Nazis do and they'll be willing to pay handsomely for it.
Jones: And the museum? The museum gets the Ark when we're finished?
Brody: [hesitates, knowing probably not] Hell, yes.

Gypsy: Come, look here.
Jones: What is it?
Gypsy: [reading the headpiece] This is a warning not to disturb the Ark of the Covenant.
Jones: What about the height of the staff? Did Belloq get it off of here?
Gypsy: Yes, it is here. This is the old way, it means six kadams high.
Sallah: About 72 inches--
Old man: Wait! [turns the headpiece over] And take back one kadam to honor the Hebrew God whose Ark this is.
Jones: [looks at Sallah] You said their headpiece only had markings on one side, are you absolutely sure? [Sallah nods] Belloq's staff is too long.
Jones and Sallah: They're digging in the wrong place!

Jones: [commenting on Marion's new dress from Belloq] Where'd you get that, from him?
Marion: I was trying to escape, no thanks to you!
Jones: How hard were you trying?

Jones: [from atop a canyon looking down upon the Nazis below] Hello!
Belloq: Jones? JONES!
Jones: [leveling a bazooka] I'm gonna blow up the Ark, Ren?.
Belloq: Your persistence surprises even me! You're gonna give mercenaries a bad name.
Colonel Dietrich: Doctor Jones. Surely you don't think you can escape from this island.
Jones: That depends on how reasonable we're all willing to be, all I want is the girl.
Colonel Dietrich: [looks at Belloq who shakes his head] If we refuse?
Jones: Then your Führer has no prize.
Belloq: Okay Jones, you win. Blow it up. [takes a machine gun from one of the many Nazi soldiers who attempt to guard the Ark and holds them back] Yes, blow it up! Blow it back to God. All your life has been spent in pursuit of archaeological relics; inside the Ark are treasures beyond your wildest aspirations... You want to see it opened as well as I. Indiana. We are simply passing through history. [pointing to the Ark] This... this is history. [pause] Do as you will.
[Jones lowers his bazooka and allows himself to be captured]

Jones: Belloq.
Belloq: Good evening, Jones.
Jones: I oughta kill you right now.
Belloq: Not a very private place for a murder.
Jones: Well these Arabs don't care what we get up to, they're not gonna interfere in our business.
Belloq: It was not I who brought the girl into all this. Please, sit down before you fall down, we can at least behave like civilized people. [Indy sits, letting the monkey run free] I see your taste in friends remains consistent. How odd that it should end this way for us, after so many... stimulating encounters. I almost regret it. Where shall I find a new adversary so close to my own level?
Jones: Try the local sewer.
Belloq: [chuckles] You and I are very much alike. Archeology is our religion, yet we have both fallen from the pure faith. Our methods have not differed as much as you pretend. I am a shadowy reflection of you. And it would take only a nudge to make you like me, to push you out of the line.
Jones: Now you're gettin' nasty.
Belloq: You know it's true. How nice. Look at this [holds up a silver pocket watch] it's worthless. Ten dollars from a vendor in the street. But I take it, I bury it in the sand for a thousand years, it becomes priceless! Like the Ark. Men will kill for it; men like you and me.
Jones: What about your boss, Der Führer? I thought he was waiting to take possession.
Belloq: All in good time. When I'm finished with it. Jones, do you realize what the Ark is? It's a transmitter, it's a radio for speaking to God, and it's within my reach.
Jones: You wanna to talk to God? Let's go see him together, I've got nothing better to do.
[Everyone in the pub draws their guns, but the fight is stopped by Sallah's children coming in for Indy]
Belloq: Next time, Doctor Jones, it will take more than children to save you.

Jones: Get us a transport to England. Boat, plane, anything. Meet me in Cairo. I'm going after that truck.
Sallah: How?
Jones: I don't know, I'm making this up as I go.

Jones: Give me the whip!
Satipo: Throw me the idol! No time to argue, you throw me the idol, I throw you the whip.
[Jones tosses the idol across the pit to Satipo]
Jones: Give me the whip!
Satipo: Adiós señor!

Jones: Hello Marion.
Marion: [laughs] Indiana Jones! Always knew someday you'd come walking back through my door. I never doubted that. Something made it inevitable. So what are you doing here in Nepal?
Jones: I need one of the pieces your father collected.
[Marion punches him in the jaw]
Marion: I learned to hate you in the last ten years!
Jones: I never meant to hurt you.
Marion: I was a child, I was in love! It was wrong and you knew it!
Jones: You knew what you were doing.
Marion: Now I do. This is my place. Get out!

Jones: I had it, Marcus. I had it in my hand.
Brody: What happened?
Jones: Guess.
Brody: [chuckles] Belloq?
Jones: Wanna hear about it?
Brody: Not at all.

Jones: I knew the Germans would hire you, Sallah. You're the best digger in Egypt.
Sallah: My services are entirely inconsequential to them. They hire only strong backs and they pay only pennies. They have hired or shanghaied every... in Egypt. It is as if the Pharaohs have returned.

Jones: I'm looking for a piece your father collected. Bronze medallion; center with a crystal. You know the one I mean?
Marion: Yah, I know it.
Jones: Where's Abner? [Marion ignores him] Where's Abner!
Marion: Abner's dead.
Jones: Marion, I'm sorry.
Marion: Do you know what you did to me? To my life.
Jones: I can only say I'm sorry so many times.
Marion: Well say it again anyway!
Jones: I'm sorry.
Marion: Yeah, everybody's sorry. Abner was sorry for dragging me all over this earth, looking for his little bits of junk. I'm sorry to still be stuck in this dive. Everybody's sorry for something.
Jones: It's a worthless bronze medallion, are gonna give it to me or not?
Marion: Maybe. I don't know where it is.
Jones: Well maybe you could find it.

Jones: There's a big snake in the plane, Jock!
Jock: That's just my pet snake Reggie!
Jones: I hate snakes, Jock! I HATE 'EM!
Jock: Come on! Show a little backbone, will ya!

Jones: This is it. This is where Forrestal cashed in.
Satipo: A friend of yours?
Indiana: A competitor. He was good... he was very, very good.
Satipo: Señor, nobody comes out of there alive. Please!
