** I got the impression that it wasn't intentional, but that the tugboat was buffeted by the waves caused by the speedboats racing past it, and in turn nudged one of the ships into the other ship.

* So, the 'J' tile crumbles under Indy's foot when he steps on it, as that's not how Jehovah is spelled in Latin. But when he grabs the 'Y' and 'L' tiles to save himself, they don't crumble, even though both letters are also absent from Jehovah.

*** The Grail probably confers the ability to understand and be understood in any language. That's what happened with Jesus' disciples on Pentacost.

** He doesn't have proof that the Ark of the Covenant is directly connected to the Old or New Testament God. He has proof that if you take the lid off the Ark of the Covenant, some unfathomable and inexplicable power is going to melt you. Precisely what causes the melting remains unknown (and unknowable) to him; he can certainly ''hypothesise'' that it's the Literal Wrath of God, but beyond that he has no proof at all.

*** To be fair, he's about as well-adjusted as you'd expect of a man who's lived in self-imposed exile in a cave for any number of centuries to be. He's not exactly normal by mid-twentieth century standards, true, but he's coherent, fairly aware of his surroundings and those in them, and capable of rational thought and conversation.

*** I always assumed it was [[TheGreatestStoryNeverTold yet another case of the Cross having some supernatural properties which Panama was plotting to misuse]], and the government sent Indy out to thwart him by snatching the cross back.

* The boat chase. Why exactly were those boats being pushed together by that tug that squashed that boat chasing Indy and Elsa? That seems like a good way to damage all three boats (the two ships and the tug).

** I think the implication is that the adventure in this film to retrieve the Grail is the metaphorical "Last Crusade," not any of the historical crusades.

** Target fixation? He may have been so focused on getting Indy in his gunsights that he stopped paying attention to flying the airplane. It wouldn't be the first time a pilot got killed by that.
