Indiana Jones: It was just the two of us, dad. It was a lonely way to grow up. For you, too. If you had been an ordinary, average father like the other guys' dads, you'd have understood that.Indy: What you taught me was that I was less important to you than people who had been dead for five hundred years in another country.
