There's one scene in LC that I don't get. When Henry Jones enters the tank and meets Marcus Brody, the two of them exchange hand motions and say some inaudible things that I can't hear well. Can anyone tell me what they're saying?

"The genius of the restoration aid our own resuscitation". No doubt it is a school club chant/toast and "handshake"
from their days at Oxford University. One, nice tip-of-the-hat in the TV series was that Henry Sr. greets an old,
Oxford colleague in the exact same way! (British East Africa - Sep. 1909)

Screenplay:

They exchange an old University Club toast, swinging their arms at one another
and missing. Then HENRY flaps his arms and tugs his ears.

HENRY
"Genius of the Restoration-"

Now BRODY tugs his ears, flaps his arms and touches his head.

BRODY
"-aid our own resuscitation!"

They exchange a handshake.

Yup, that was great. Owen does a great Henry Jones, Sr.

Thanks for clearing that up. Here's another thing that I don't get. In Raiders when Indy is about to eat the poisoned dates... Sallah is singing something: "I am the monarch of the sea! I am the ruler of the qu....." Is that a real song? Anyone know all the words to it?

Yes, that was in fact written for a late 19th century comic opera HMS Pinafore (http://www.culturevulture.net/Opera/HMSPinafore.htm).

The thing Sallah sings after getting kissed by Marion at the Bantu Wind is also from the opera mentioned above.

Impressive. Most impressive. Too bad Sallah apparently won't be doing any musical numbers in Indy IV.
