In the years since the release of the first film, the
franchise rose to popularity and considered to be the greatest movies of all
time and one of the greatest action movies ever made! In addition to this, the
movies had a significant influence over popular culture, as the films’
successes inspired a variety of filmmakers and continued to influence modern

Harrison Ford has also been part of an array of beloved
characters on the big screen such as Han Solo in “Star Wars.”
No matter how big or small the character is, he always
invests equal effort for every other movie. While talking to a media

So, in honor of the return of classic Indiana Jones movie
with his iconic cast, let’s reflect back to the five most memorable quotes from
the Indiana Jones movies:
Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?”
Just like any great character has a certain fear, varying
from Chiroptophobic Bruce Waye to Captain America’s disdain from being called
“a laboratory experiment.”
Indiana Jones also has the greatest fear of snakes. In
Raiders of the Lost Ark, he went into the massive underground tomb to resurrect
the Ark of the Covenant and discovers that the floor is full of slithering,
poisonous snakes. And that’s when he uttered this iconic dialogue, “Snakes. Why
did it have to be a snake?”
call me, Junior!”
It was a work of genius when Indiana Jones father in the Last
Crusade was introduced to the fans! Sean Connery, the original James Bond,
played the father of the protagonist who was considered to be an American James
Bond… well, extra point to
Spielberg to played it smartly!
Connery and Ford’s incredible chemistry was such a delight
to see that they genuinely seemed to be real father and son in the movie.
Boat?! We’re Not Sinking, and We’re Crashing!”
Willie Scott may be one of those annoying characters who
scream when encountering danger and relies on men for the rescue. But she did
give an iconic dialogue to remember!
Willie, Indy and Short stuck in a crashing plane with no
pilot and parachutes. So Indy takes out a raft, and that’s when Willie says, “A
boat?! We’re not sinking; we’re crashing!” Luckily, they survived the crash on
the same boat!
“Jock! Start the Engine!”
Here come my favorite dialogue and a favorite Indiana Jones’
The opening scene of Raiders
of the Lost Ark might be the best opening scene in the history of cinema!
The scene opens with Indy going into an ancient temple located at the middle of
the jungle to recover an antique relic. He safely dodges all the booby traps on
the way, and grabs a relic before being chased by aggressive warriors of an indigenous
tribe. That’s when she shouts to his pilot, “Jock! Start the engine!”
call this archaeology?”
Dr. Jones was an archaeologist by profession, but all we see
him fighting off Nazis and being chased by the violent lads…
Indy and his father was stuck on a Nazi tank when they were
wandering through the desert in Indiana
Jones and the Last Crusade, that’s when Henry, Sr. ironically utters, “You
call this archeology?”
Did nostalgia hit you after reading this? Sure, it did!
