Walter Donovan Quotes in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)


Walter Donovan Quotes:

  • Elsa: It's perfectly obvious where the pages are. He's given them to Marcus Brody.

    Professor Henry Jones: Marcus? You didn't drag poor Marcus along did you? He's not up to the challenge.

    Walter Donovan: He sticks out like a sore thumb. We'll find him.

    Indiana Jones: The hell you will. He's got a two day head start on you, which is more than he needs. Brody's got friends in every town and village from here to the Sudan, he speaks a dozen languages, knows every local custom, he'll blend in, disappear, you'll never see him again. With any luck, he's got the grail already.

    Walter Donovan: The Nazis? Is that the limit of your vision? The Nazis want to write themselves into the Grail legend, take on the world. Well, they're welcome to it. But I want the Grail itself, the cup that gives everlasting life. Hitler can have the world, but he can't take it with him. I'm going to be drinking my own health after he's gone the way of the dodo.

    [He shoots Henry in the stomach]

  • Walter Donovan: Find the man and you'll find the Grail.
