Heartwarming: Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • Sallah's children/nieces/nephews coming between Indy and Belloq, just as Belloq's goons are about to shoot Indy. Calling him "Uncle Indy" the entire time.
  • Indy and Marion on the ship, Marion playing doctor.
    Indy: Ow! That hurt!
    Marion: Well goddamnit, Indy, where doesn't it hurt?
    Indy: (points to his elbow) Here. (Marion kisses it. He then points to his cheek.) Here. (She kisses it, then he points to his forehead.) This isn't so bad. (She flips his hat off and kisses his forehead. He points to his lip...)
  • Near the end, when Marion gives Sallah a farewell kiss on the cheek in gratitude for all his help, just before she and Indy board the ship for home. Sallah's response is even more heartwarming as he obviously wasn't expecting this. Slowly he breaks into a big, radiant smile and starts singing "A British Tar," much to the amusement of several workers nearby, one of whom Sallah gives a random, manly kiss as he continues to sing...
  • The ending, with a sharp-dressed Indy and Marion in D.C.
    Indy: (referring to the government types that have just ignored everything he's said) Fools. Bureaucratic fools. They don't know what they've got there.
    Marion: Well I know what I've got here. C'mon, I'll buy you a drink. (They walk off arm-in-arm.)
