: My friend and I are having a debate.
: Is Indy a drinker like Marion? Or can Indy not even compare to Marion?

I'd have to agree with you. We do see Indy with half a bottle of
some sort of alcoholic beverage (Raiders, after Marion "dies", scene with Belloq in Cairo. It looks like he's drank 3/4 a bottle and is
still stable. But Marion owns a bar, and is the bar tender. She
probably his quite a bit of "experience" because of this profession.
Indy, on the other hand, is a professor of archeology, and is too busy
writing lesson plans and chasing after gold idols to take up drinking.
Just my opinion. Sorry if this letter is a bit disjointed, I hate finals.
