Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) Poster

Alison Doody: Elsa



  • 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?

  • [Encountering a painting of the Ark of the Covenant] 

    Elsa : What's this?

    Indiana Jones : Ark of the Covenant.

    Elsa : Are you sure?

    Indiana Jones : Pretty sure.

  • [Vogel is holding Elsa hostage at gunpoint] 

    Colonel Vogel : Throw down the gun or the girl will die.

    Professor Henry Jones : But she's one of them.

    Elsa : Indy, please!

    Professor Henry Jones : She's a Nazi.

    Indiana Jones : What?

    Professor Henry Jones : Trust me.

    Elsa : Indy, help!

    Colonel Vogel : I will kill her!

    Professor Henry Jones : Oh yeah? Go ahead.

    Indiana Jones : No! Don't shoot!

    Professor Henry Jones : Don't worry. He won't.

    Elsa : Indy, please do what he says!

    Professor Henry Jones : And don't listen to her.

    Colonel Vogel : Enough! She dies!

    Indiana Jones : Wait! Wait.

    [Indy tosses over the gun. Vogel lets Elsa go and she runs right into Indy's arms] 

    Elsa : I'm sorry.

    Indiana Jones : Don't be.

    [Elsa takes the grail diary from Indy's pocket, smiles, then hands it to Vogel] 

    Elsa : But you should have listened to your father.

  • Elsa : [to Indy]  I'll never forget how vonderful it vas.

    Professor Henry Jones : Why thank you. It was rather wonderful.

    Elsa : [kisses Indy]  Zat's how Austrians say goodbye.

    Colonel Vogel : Und zis is how ve zay goodbye in Germany, Dr. Jones.

    [punches Indy with the head of his cane; Indy's head smacks into Henry's behind him] 

    Indiana Jones : I liked the Austrian way better.

    Professor Henry Jones : So did I.

  • Elsa : Don't look at me like that. We both wanted the Grail. I would have done anything to get it. You would have done the same.

    Indiana Jones : I'm sorry you think so.

  • Elsa : You came back for the book? Why?

    Indiana Jones : My father didn't want it incinerated.

    Elsa : [angrily]  Is that what you think of me? I believe in the Grail, not the Swastika!

    Indiana Jones : [angrily]  You stood up to be counted with the enemies of everything the Grail stands for! Who gives a *damn* what you believe?

    Elsa : [pleadingly]  You do!

  • Indiana Jones : [grabbing Elsa by the throat]  All I have to do is squeeze.

    Elsa : All I have to do is scream.

  • Indiana Jones : [steals a flower for Elsa]  Fraulein, will you permit me?

    Elsa : I usually don't.

    Indiana Jones : I usually don't either.

    Elsa : In that case I permit you.

    Indiana Jones : It would make me very happy.

    Elsa : But I am already sad, by tomorrow it will have faded.

    Indiana Jones : Tomorrow I'll steal you another one.

  • Elsa : Dr. Jones?

    Indiana Jones : Yes?

    Elsa : I knew it was you, you have your father's eyes.

    Indiana Jones : And my mother's ears but the rest belongs to you.

    Elsa : It looks like the best parts have already been spoken for.

  • Indiana Jones : Are you crazy? Don't go between them!

    Elsa : Go between them! Are you crazy?

  • Elsa : [after finding that her room has been ransacked]  My room.

    Indiana Jones : Mine too.

    Elsa : What were they looking for?

    Indiana Jones : This.

    Elsa : The Grail Diary?

    Indiana Jones : Uh huh.

    Elsa : You had it? You didn't trust me?

    Indiana Jones : I didn't know you. At least I let you tag along.

    Elsa : Oh yes, Give them a flower and they'll follow you anywhere.

    Indiana Jones : Knock it off, you're not mad.

    Elsa : No?

    Indiana Jones : No, you like the way I do things.

    Elsa : You're lucky I don't do things the same way. You'd still be standing at the Venice Pier.

    Indiana Jones : What do you think is going on here? Since I've met you I've nearly been incinerated, drowned, shot at and chopped into fish bait. We're caught in the middle of something sinister here. My guess is dad found out more than he was looking for and until I am sure I am going to continue to do things the way I think they should be done.

    [Indiana Kisses Elsa] 

    Elsa : How dare you kiss me.

    [Elsa Kisses Indiana] 

    Indiana Jones : Leave me alone, I don't like fast women.

    Elsa : [while nibbling on Indiana's ear]  And I hate arrogant men.

    Indiana Jones : [after they both fall into bed, kissing]  Ahh, Venice.

  • [Elsa slips into a crevice and nearly falls, but Indiana grabs her leather gloved hands just in time. She slowly turns her head to see the grail resting below her] 

    Indiana Jones : Elsa...

    [Elsa wrenches her left hand free to reach the grail] 

    Indiana Jones : Elsa. Don't Elsa. Elsa. Give me your other hand honey, I can't hold you!

    Elsa : I can reach it... I can reach it...

    [the glove on her hand starts slipping] 

    Indiana Jones : Elsa. Give me your hand, give me your other hand!

    [Elsa cries out as she nearly touches the grail. The glove suddenly slips off her hand and she plunges into the abyss] 

    Indiana Jones : Elsa!

  • Indiana Jones : Bingo!

    Elsa : You don't disappoint, Dr. Jones. You're a great deal like your father.

    Indiana Jones : Except he's lost and I'm not.

  • Elsa : [meeting Indy and Marcus in Venice]  The last time I saw your father we were in the library. He was very close to tracking down the Knight's tomb. I've never seen him so excited. He was as giddy as a schoolboy.

    Indiana Jones : Who, Atilla The Professor? He was never giddy, even when he was a schoolboy.

  • [Elsa picks up the Grail and attempts to leave the Temple with it] 

    Elsa : We have got it, come on!

    Indiana Jones : Elsa. Elsa don't move.

    Elsa : It's ours Indy, yours and mine.

    Indiana Jones : Elsa don't cross the seal. The knight warned us not to take the grail from here!

    [Elsa ignores Indiana and her bootheel steps across the Great Seal, triggering the temple's collapse] 

  • Elsa : I left your father working in the library. He sent me to the map section to fetch an ancient plan of the city. When I got back to his table, he'd gone, with all his papers, except for that scrap, which I found near his chair.

    Indiana Jones : [showing Marcus]  Roman numerals.

    Elsa : Here is the library.

    Indiana Jones : That doesn't look much like a library.

    Marcus Brody : Looks like a converted church.

    Elsa : [cut to them inside]  In this case, it's the literal truth. We are on holy ground. These columns over here were brought back as spoils of war after the sacking of Byzantium during the Crusades.

  • Indiana Jones : [passing between two ships during a speedboat chase]  I said go around!

    Elsa : You said go between them!

    Indiana Jones : I said "don't go between them"!

  • Indiana Jones : [searching for his father]  This one. I think he's in here.

    Elsa : How do you know?

    Indiana Jones : [indicating the contraption above the door]  Because it's wired.

  • 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.
