: I was wondering what line in all of the movies everyone considers to be THE defining
: line of Indiana Jones. What phrase, or moment or scene just sums up the character
: for you? For me, it simply boils down to one line from "Raiders of the Lost Ark"...
: "I don't know, I'm just making this up as I go..."
: That right there can tell people not very familiar with the character what he is like.
: Is there any scene or line that does it for you?
Wow I really can't believe no one's said this. Im a huge history buff and even though Indy takes a few liberties with the past in the movies the heart of it can all be summed up in a line Indy didn't say- but had to concede to because it was true.
"Go ahaed and blow it back to God!
All your life has been spent in pursiut of archealogilal relics. Inside the ark are treasures beyond your wildest aspirations. You want to see it opened as well as I. Idiana, we are simply passing through history. This, this *is* history."
Humbly Myself- slave to history.
