Plot hole: When Indy is stepping on the letters at the end, trying to spell out God's name, he steps on J, incorrectly, causing it to collapse. When he falls through, however, he grabs onto another letter so as not to fall down. The letters he grabs onto and pulls himself up are an L and a Y, which are not in the word Iehova, so should have collapsed too. (01:46:20)
Donovan shoots Indy's dad in order to force Indy to co-operate. Indy gets past the traps, and finds a knight guarding a room full of Holy Grails. Donovan asks which is the correct one, but the knight simply says that Donovan must choose himself. Donovan asks Else to choose it, and she deliberately gives him the wrong one, so that when he drinks from it he ages to death and disintegrates. Indy chooses the plainest cup there, which turns out to be the true Grail. He then uses the Grail to heal his father. Elsa then carries the Grail over a seal on the floor (which the knight had told them not to do), and the place starts breaking up. Elsa falls down a bottomless pit trying to reach the Grail, and Indy nearly does the same, only stopping when his father asks him not to. They then get out before the place explodes. It's then revealed that Indy took his nickname from the dog he owned as a kid.
Henry: Come on, Junior.
Indiana: Will you please stop calling me Junior?
Sallah: Please, what does this mean? Always with this Junior?
Henry: That's his name: Henry Jones, Junior.
Indiana: I like Indiana.
Henry: We named the dog Indiana.
Sallah: The dog? You are named after the dog.
Marcus: Can we go home please?
Indiana: I have a lot of fond memories of that dog.
Question: They didn't make it out of the cave with the grail because they dawdled... I wonder, would someone be able to make it out running at a dead sprint once they crossed the seal? And if so, does that mean that they're home free? Or would disaster follow them outside of the cave?
