At the table, the four Chinese man in suits stare coldly at



Dr. Jones.


Lao She.


Nee chin lie how ma?

Lao's men laugh and assume that Indy doesn't understand his



Wah hung how, nee nah? Wah hwey hung

LAO SHE looks angry and his men's smiles fade.


You never told me you spoke my

language, Dr. Jones.


I don't like to show off.

Indiana takes a seat across the table from Shanghai's

notorious crime-lord. Lao is fifty, wealthy enough to now

display some fat, but still muscular from his fight to the

top of the garbage heap.


For this special occasion, I ordered

champagne and caviar.

Indiana looks at the pile of caviar on the plate in front of

him - and stubs his cigarette out in it. The cigarette sizzles

and Lao's smiles dies with it.

There's applause as Willie Scott finishes her song. At the

table, Lao stares at Indiana with a strange intensity.
