Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom script
Synopsis: The second of the Lucas/Spielberg Indiana Jones epics is set a year or so before the events in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Indy needs to retrieve a precious gem and several kidnapped young boys on behalf of a remote East Indian village. This time he teams up with a night club singer and a 12-year old boy.

Sure, I found him. Then last night I

had a little trouble. Somebody tried

to slit my throat.

Indiana looks across the table at Lao's son, CHEN, who

resembles a bulldog and snarls like one now.


It was dark, but I think one of your

sons tried to get Nurhachi without

paying for him.

Indy stares pointedly at Chen's recently bandaged hand. Chen

mutters and stands angrily -- Lao barks a command in Chinese

and Chen sits down again.

Next time I'll cut off more than his



Dr. Jones -- I want Nurhachi.

Lao pulls a wad of cash out of his pocket and puts it on the

table. Indiana glances at it.

Now a pretty hand slips onto Lao's shoulder and he looks up

to see Willie Scott. Lao kisses her hand. Willie is unaware

of the explosive mood at the table and she smiles

flirtatiously at Indiana.
