** Along the same lines as that bar fight, Indy and the driver of the truck joining forces to avoid crashing (much) into a construction project and then sharing a moment before Indy punches him out of the truck.

Added DiffLines:

* While the climax is pretty [[NightmareFuel horrifying]], there is just something hilarious about how Toht ScreamsLikeALittleGirl the moment things go bad.


** Better: that look on Indy's face is actual pain from Harrison Ford's dysentery that forced the "just shoot the sucker" moment in the first place.

* The DVD special features have some utterly hilarious footage of Spielberg chastising one of the snakes from the Well of Souls scene after discovering that, being cold blooded, snakes actually like to be close to fire. "You like fire. In the script, you're supposed to hate fire. Why do you like fire?! You're ruining my movie!"

** And it's based on a deleted scene from ''Film/NineteenFortyOne'' (done for that film by Creator/ChristopherLee!), which Spielberg swore he'd try to put in all of his movies until it stayed in.

Added DiffLines:

* With Marionís wine barrels shot up and leaking, she sneaks one last drink from them before getting back in the fight.


* Sallah giving Indy a good-bye ManHug would fall under HeartwarmingMoments if it didn't aggravate Indy's myriad injuries.

** Dietrich grabs a melon and [[KickTheDog throws it at a barking dog]].



* Marion waving the torch at Indy's whip mistaking it for a snake and causing Indy to [[AmusingInjuries jump in pain.]]

* This exchange:
-->'''Major Eaton:''' We have top men working on it right now.
-->'''Indiana Jones:''' Who?
-->'''Major Eaton:''' Top. Men.



-->'''Belloq:''' Next time it will take more than children to save you Dr. Jones

* The scene of Indy facing down a swordsman in the Cairo market. The Mook spends several seconds twirling the blade menacingly, after which Indy makes a "I don't have time for this" face, [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim pulls out his gun and shoots him]].

[[WhatCouldHaveBeen We lost an awesome whip vs. sword fight scene]], but got one of the funniest moments in movie history in exchange.

Added DiffLines:

** Even better, Marion tried to use her high drinking tolerance to get one over on Belloq and escape. [[NoSell Turns out the grappa is from his family label and he's been drinking it his whole life]].

Added DiffLines:

* When Indy makes the famous "swap the bag of sand for the idol" maneuver, he weighs the bag of sand in his hand and ''takes some out'' as if it'll somehow be heavier than a huge lump of solid gold.


Added DiffLines:

* At the end of the chase, Indy drives the stolen truck with the Ark into a garage, and the locals immediately move to hide it, with a couple of them running up to Dietrich to offer them melons to really sell it.


Added DiffLines:

* Captain Katanga meets Indy for the first time when he's filty, bruised, and battered from the truck chase:
-->'''Katanga''': Mr. Jones! I've heard a lot about you, sir. Your appearance is exactly the way I imagined.


Added DiffLines:

** The first mook he knocks out appears to be the shortest Nazi in the film, being a good head shorter than the other three guys who passed by Indy's hiding place.


Added DiffLines:

* Belloq and Dietrich being deeply frustrated over not finding the Ten Commandments inside the Ark, but what appears to be very fine sand is one thing. Toht breaking down into hysterical laughter afterwards just puts the cherry on it.


* In the bar fight, Indy and a Mook are grappling over a gun and another mook is told "Shoot them. Shoot them both." They promptly, of one mind, ''both turn and shoot the other mook''.

Added DiffLines:

* Toht sweltering in the heat as they transport the ark to where it'll be opened, as he's wearing a black leather trenchcoat in [[RealityEnsues the middle of the Mediterranean sun]]. Gestapo uniform codes must be ''strict''.

Added DiffLines:

* Indy's ''clearly'' in no hurry to get his ass whipped, which makes his casual "Okay, okay dude, I'm coming" reaction when the big German beckons him down to fight all the funnier.
** He then tries for a sneaky GroinAttack after distracting the German, who {{No Sell}}s it and knocks Indy flat on his rear with a single light jab, with Indy's knees visibly wobbling just before they give out from under him.
