** A more PlayedForLaughs example in the bar--Indiana is about to be gunned down when Sallah's children show up to retrieve "[[HonoraryUncle Uncle Indy]]". Belloq finds it amusing enough to hold his fire.
---> "Next time, Dr. Jones, it will take more than children to save you!"

* ReasoningWithGod: Belloq tells Indy that the Ark is a 'transmitter' and a 'radio for speaking to God'; presumably his intense desire to open it before it reaches Hitler is so he can have his own personal tete-a-tete with the Almighty. He never considered the fact that God might not be so interested in hearing what's on his mind...

* RewatchBonus: Happens near the finale where Indy threatens to destroy the Ark with a rocket launcher. When the video centers on Belloq, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvQWnVAPl1U a fly can be seen crawling across his face]]. Credit to Paul Freeman for not breaking character.
