: This one's for Northy (a little something other than clothes discussions): During Last Crusade, when Indy is in class teaching, he tells his students, "Archaelogy is the search for facts. If it's truth you're after, Dr. Tyree's philosophy class is down the hall..."

In real life, Dr. Tyree was Harrison Ford's academic advisor at Ripon College in Wisconsin. This was when HF was majoring in philosophy and before he joined the Red Barn theatrical group. At the time, Dr. Tyree was also his friend although they had "a bit of a falling out" when HF bagged his studies and was flunked out of Ripon. Perhaps this was HF's way of burying the hatchet with his old friend. -CP
