350 Indiana Jones Trivia Questions, Answers, and Fun Facts

How much do you know about Indiana Jones? This category is for trivia questions and answers related to Indiana Jones (Movies). Each one is filled with fun facts and interesting information.
1 As "Raiders of the Lost Ark" opens, Indiana Jones is searching for an idol. When he locates it, he is hesitant to approach it. Indy's assistant says "Let us hurry. There is nothing to fear here." What is Indiana's timorous reply?
Answer: "That's what scares me."

The movie opens as Indiana tries to recover a Hovito idol with two assistants (though only one enters the temple with him). Indy locates the right place, but must navigate through skeletons and deadly traps all along the way. When Indiana and his assistant reach the room with the idol in it, the room is empty and innocuous-looking. However, Indiana ignores the impatience of his assistant, and avoids a gruesome death by booby trap. Despite Indiana's clever switch of the idol with a sandbag, the temple begins to crash down around their ears. Even worse, Indiana's enemy Belloq is waiting at the temple entrance to relieve Indiana of his prize.

Answer: mileage

Marion and Indiana renew their relationship during their quest for the Ark of the Covenant, but it is clear that much has changed since they first met. It is not simply a question of ten years having elapsed. Marion implies that Indiana broke her heart when he left her, and that she is now a woman who knows who she is and what she is doing. Similarly, Indiana has matured greatly, though his growing up was achieved through adventure and danger rather than betrayal and abandonment. This quote really sums up the changes that both characters have gone through.

Answer: "Only on special occasions."

This banter between Indiana and Lao Che, together with Willie's performance, sets the stage for the sour business deal that is about to occur. The exchange reveals that deceit and secrecy are parts of their business relationship. However, while Indiana seems quite prepared for Lao Che to try to cheat him out of his reward and then take the diamond back by force, he clearly does not anticipate a poisoned drink (a mistake he probably never repeats again). Fortunately, Indiana manages to escape with the help of his juvenile sidekick despite the loss of one of his friends.

Answer: Kali

Indiana mentions Kali as someone Mola Ram will meet in the afterlife because she is the goddess whom Mola Ram and the Thuggee cult worship. Kali is often portrayed as an evil goddess, particularly in film, but she can also be viewed as the protector of mothers. It is not the worship of Kali that makes Mola Ram's cult evil in the movie but the human sacrifices they make to her. Shiva, the god worshiped by the local townspeople in "Indiana Jones", is actually Kali's consort.

35 When Indiana and his father get into a plane to escape capture and soar away, Professor Henry Jones remarks, "I didn't know you could fly a plane." What is Indiana's bipartite reply?
Answer: "Fly, yes. Land, no."

This is not Indiana's first experience with flying a plane. In the "Temple of Doom" he must fly a plane that the pilots have deserted. In that situation, he does not even attempt to land, but jumps out using an inflatable raft as a parachute. Here, Indiana and his father stay in the plane, and experience a bumpy but safe landing. After these experiences, I bet Indiana gave some serious thought to getting a pilot's license.
