How many college professors can get paid to go on treasure hunts, turn a lion tamers whip into a weapon and maybe get mistaken for Han Solo? Indiana Jones is his name and he is the world of academia's most famous action hero. While balancing final exams with life-or-death tests in foreign countries, Indiana Jones has entertained massive movie audiences with quotes that convey the quick wit that lives under his leather Stetson fedora. 

"You want to talk to God? Let's go see him together, I've got nothing better to do." In the 1981 blockbuster "Raiders of the Lost Ark", Indiana Jones communicates this quote with the same reckless spunk that he has subscribed to for the entire film series. Even if he might be bluffing a little, Indy still seems to be willing to live and die by his quest for ancient artifacts. Considering that this particular relic is the Holy Ark of the Covenant, Indiana Jones clearly would hate to see that thing sitting on Hitler's living room mantle.

"I don't know, I'm making this up as I go!" This quote would be perfect for the official Indiana Jones mantra and mission statement. Jones' Moroccan pal Sallah is justifiably concerned for Indy's safety in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" when the whip-cracking adventurer decides to chase a caravan of Nazis. But it just wouldn't be an Indiana Jones movie if he didn't make crazy decisions that leave him drowning in danger.

"Yes, the actual Ten Commandments, the original stone tablets that Moses brought down from Mt. Horeb and smashed, if you believe in that sort of thing...didn't any of you guys ever go to Sunday school?" Even when Indiana Jones is talking to employers willing to finance his journeys, he still does not miss an opportunity to give them a blunt piece of his mind. Jones is so well read about world history that he assumes that the rest of the world is also. Indiana Jones turns these experts into students with this quote during an early scene in "Raiders of the Lost Ark." This event sets Indiana off on his first film journey to find a powerful biblical antiquity know as the Ark of the Covenant.

Willie: "You're gonna get killed chasing after your damn fortune and glory! "Indiana Jones: "Maybe. But not today." If Indiana Jones has any inkling of fear in his heart, he will never let a living soul know it. This quote from "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" shows that Dr. Jones' new love interest is not too happy about his treacherous hobby. But in true Indiana Jones fashion, he shrugs his shoulders and keeps moving forward.

"Nazis. I hate these guys." After facing off with a dastardly fleet of Adolf Hitler's henchmen in the original "Raiders of the Lost Ark" film, this quote from "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" brings Indy's anti-Nazi campaign full circle. This third Indiana Jones installment sends Jones off to find his father who has disappeared while searching for the Holy Grail. Ironically, a man who made another action hero named James Bond famous–Sean Connery, plays Indiana Jones' father.   

"DON'T call me Junior!" During an awkward father and son family reunion, the bickering Jones' find themselves tied up together with death awaiting them. Indiana Jones hates being considered secondary - even by his own father. Fueled by the brewing contempt for his swastika-wearing enemies and his daddy getting on his last nerve, Indiana shoots their capturers in the midst of this outburst from "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade."
