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.
  • When describing how he prepared for playing the role of young Indiana Jones, River Phoenix explained that he didn`t really base his portrayal on the Indiana Jones character. Instead, he decided to do his rendition of actor Harrison Ford. So he observed Ford out of character before acting his part.
  • For the DVD release, over 970,000 frames were cleaned up by Lowry Digital Images, the same company that cleaned up Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), North by Northwest (1959) and Sunset Blvd. (1950) for DVD.
  • To help achieve the sound of thousands of rats, sound designer Ben Burtt actually used the higher registers of thousands of chickens.
  • Steven Spielberg is on record as saying he made the film for two reasons: 1) to fulfill a three-picture obligation he had with George Lucas, and, 2) to atone for the criticism that he received for the previous installment, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984).
  • Having Sean Connery play Jones` father was an inside joke to James Bond being the father of Indiana Jones. Spielberg had always wanted to do a Bond film but did Indiana Jones as a James Bond type character.
