** Hey, don't knock those traps. The fact that they're ''still'' killing fools hundreds of years later, all while adhering to Christian themes, showed that those Templars were [[ReligiousBruiser Religious]] [[GeniusBruiser Genius Bruisers]] of the highest caliber.

** This Troper views Indy's decision on the final trap - a ''literal leap of faith'' - to be a crowning moment when you see it for the first time, because you can't see how in the Hell Indiana can cross a vast chasm. The moment he lifts up that leg and prepares to leap off, you HAD to be on the edge of your seat thinking "How is he going to survive THIS one?"

** And speaking of Kazim--after he and Indy part on peaceful terms, he [[ChekhovsGunman comes back later in the movie]] with [[TheCavalry reinforcements]] to help Indy against ThoseWackyNazis. He dies fighting to protect the Grail, which is probably how he would've wanted to die.

* Hey Indy, I bet you can't joust on a motorbike with a flagpo- NO WAY!!! Well, I bet you can't jam a flagpole into one of the Nazi biker's tire's and flip it ove- WHAT THE %$@*#!!! THE [[Series/{{Mythbusters}} MYTHBUSTERS]] SAID THAT WAS IMPOSSIBLE!!!
** [[MemeticMutation Indy rejects the Mythbusters' reality and substitutes his own]]. How, you ask? ''By being INDIANA-FUCKING-JONES,'' that's how!

** Maybe bike-o flip-po isn't possible, but the fact that it still would've taken the Nazi out of the chase = still awesome.


** For years, Steven Spielberg was against making a fourth movie; that image was the perfect note to end the series on.

* The fight between Indy and Kazim (the man with the fez who tries to kill him in Venice) eventually devolves into the now-disabled boat they're on slowly being fed into a ship's propeller and Jones demands answers with the threat of death over their heads. Kazim is having none of it and ''dares'' him to let them die.
---> '''Jones:''' Why are you trying to kill us?!
---> '''Kazim:''' Because you're looking for the Holy Grail!
---> '''Jones:''' My father was looking for the Holy Grail, ''did you kill him too?!''
---> '''Kazim:''' No!
---> '''Jones:''' Where is he?! Talk or you're dead! Damn it, tell me!! ''Tell me!!!''
---> '''Kazim:''' If you don't let go, Doctor Jones, we'll both die!
---> '''Jones:''' Then we'll die!
---> '''Kazim:''' ''My'' soul is prepared! How's yours?!
---> '''Jones:''' This is your last chance!
---> '''Kazim:''' No, Doctor Jones--it's ''yours!''

** Made even more {{Badass}} awesome by the fact that just before he realizes, "this tank is going off a cliff and I need to get the $#**% off", his [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere trademark fedora gets blown off in the wind]] and we think "Oh no, is this the end?". Then when he gets back off the cliff, bruised, bleeding, and for crying out loud just plain exhausted, with a look on his face that says "Hey, you guys go on ahead and find the Holy Grail without me, I'm just gonna lie down and die", his fedora blows back onscreen, he gives it a look, and resolutely puts it on and goes to join the others. Maybe Hitler declaring war on him wasn't such of an overreaction after all.
