Sure 50 points for the transformers thingy and 25 for the new rule, or something. 25 points for Spling. I dunno, lets give the next person to tell me who wrote "The Sword in the Stone" 500 points? Kay?. <P>------------------

Oog... Sword in the Stone... I'm tempted to cite a different author, but I know I'm thinking of <cite>The Once and Future King</cite>... I <em>think</em> the author is T.H. White...

Bravo LostFactor, correct you ARE!<P>And you'd be thinking the Once and Future King because after writing the Sword in the Stone, TH White went back, redid i a bit, and added more on to make the Once and Future King!
500 Points for you!<P>------------------

Now I remember why I get the points tallied as quickly as possibly, if I leave it a night everything goes wacky:<P>MooseKing: Welcome to the game... whether you want to join or not! Mwahaha!
Since you pointed out the Joseph or Arimathia thingy in the Holy Grail (boy that Joe really gets around with his grail) I'm giving you 200 points (because I really forgot about it, and already awarded points to the other guys) plus another 25 points for saying Spling and 5 points for having Pauly reply to you... sorta - 230 points total<P>LostFactor: Yeah, actually that's a brilliant idea. It'll allow more fairness on the next round (which will be much longer, as I'm only stopping this round due to finals). Oh, 50 points for transformers reference, and 25 points for spling - 75 points <P>Pauly: You have eleventy billion Poinsts... but unfortunately you have zero POINTS, which are what we are tallying. You win the bonus round though <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>------------------

INDIANA JONES and the TEMPLE of DOOM<P> STORY BY:<P> GEORGE LUCAS<P>
SCREENPLAY BY:<P> WILLARD HUYCK
AND
GLORIA KATZ<P> TM* & (c) Lucasfilm Ltd., 1984<P>
--------------<P> FADE IN:<P>1. INT. "THE DRAGON" NIGHTCLUB - NIGHT 1.<P> A Chinese GONG SOUNDS and the glittering doors of an art Deco pa-
poda slide open to reveal a mammoth silver stairway down which
rows of beautiful women start descending (BEGIN MAIN TITLES)<P> The lovely ladies are a mix of races and they sing a strange,
haunting melody -- one might think them a heavenly choir, if it
weren't for their sexy, clinging lame gowns.<P>2. INT. CLUB ENTRANCE 2.<P> From the ethereal beauties, we cut to a street urchin's dirty
face: SHORT ROUND is a ten-year-old Chinese kis wearing a beat-
up American baseball cap.<P> Sneaking into the club, Short Round weaves past the fancy gowns
and silk suits, heading toward the music in the main ballroom.<P>3. INT. THE BALLROOM 3.<P> Short Round enters and stares across the smoky nightclub. On the
stage, he sees a giant paper-mache dragon laying curled around
the pagoda.<P> Now, the dragon's eyes light up, its nostrils exhale smoke and
its enormous jaws open. Out of the dragon's mouth walks the star
of the stage show:<P> WILLIE SCOTT, a dreamy beauty singing a sultry solo white the or-
chestra wails the accompaniment.<P> But Short Round's not here to ogle crooning dames. He surveys
the rich Chinese, American and European revelers. Jewels flash
and champagne flows. Short Round finally spots a table of
somber-looking Chinese men in suits.<P> Short Round chews gum and stares at the men. Then he turns to
go. WU HAN, a waiter with a scar across his cheek, watches Short
Round leave.<P>4. INT. CLUB ENTRANCE 4.<P> As Short Round hurries toward the exit, he bumps into a man in a
tuxedo entering the club. Short Round looks up at the man, but
we don't see his face.<P> Then Short Round is grabbed by the scruff of his neck and a door-
man hustles him out the door, Short Round yelling insults all the
way.<P> A maitre d' apologizes to the man in the tuxedo and two hat-check
girls smile at him familiarly as he continues into the ballroom.
We notice something incongruous: the man in the tuxedo is wear-
ing work boots caked with mud.<P>5. INT. THE BALLROOM 5.<P> The man in the tuxedo stops to watch Willie Scott singing sexily
on the stage. Then he looks around and sees the table of somber
Chinese men that Short Round spotted earlier.<P> As the man in the tuxedo walks toward the table, he removes a
cigarette from a silver case. He arrives at the table just as
the chorus and orchestra reach a crescendo --<P> And on the stage, a glistening, muscular slave swings a huge ham-
mer toward an enormous brass gong --<P> The man in the tuxedo leans to receive a light from a cigarette-
girl and, as the GONG BOOMS, the match flares to reveal his face
for the first time:<P> It's INDIANA JONES. Elegant in a tuxedo -- dressed to kill. The
TITLES END and over this a legend appears on the screen:<P> SHANGHAI - 1935<P> At the table, the four Chinese man in suits stare coldly at Indi-
ana.<P> LAO
Dr. Jones.<P> INDIANA
Lao She.<P> LAO
Nee chin lie how ma?<P> Lao's men laugh and assume that Indy doesn't understand his joke.<P> INDIANA
Wah hung how, nee nah? Wah hwey
hung jing chee jah loo nee kao
soo wah shu shu.<P> LAO SHE looks angry and his men's smiles fade.<P> LAO
You never told me you spoke my
language, Dr. Jones.<P> INDIANA
I don't like to show off.<P> 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.<P> LAO
For this special occasion, I
ordered champagne and caviar.<P> 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.<P> There's applause as Wille Scott finishes her song. At the
table, Lao stares at Indiana with a strange intensity.<P> LAO
So, it is true, Dr. Jones? you
found Nurhachi?<P> INDIANA
Sure, I found him. Then last
night I had a little trouble.
Somebody tried to slit my throat.<P> Indiana looks across the table at Lao's son, CHEN, who resembles
a bulldog and snarls like one now.<P> INDIANA (Cont'd)
It was dark, but I think one of
your sons tried to get Nurhachi
without paying for him.<P> 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.<P> LAO
You have insulted my son.<P> INDIANA
Next time I'll cut off more than
his finger.<P> LAO
Dr. Jones -- I want Nurhachi.<P> Lao pulls a wad of cash out of his pocket and puts it on the
table. Indiana glances at it.<P> INDIANA
As I recall the deal was consid-
erably more.<P> 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 flirtaciously at Indi-
ana.<P> WILLIE
(to Lao)
Aren't you going to introduce
us?<P> LAO
This is Willie Scott.
(watching Indy)
And this is Indiana Jones, the
famous archaeologist.<P> Willie sits down between Lao and Indy. She takes out a small
mirror to check her make-up.<P> LAO (Cont'd)
Dr. Jones found Nurhachi for me
and is about to deliver him --
now.<P> Lao nods across the table and Indy sees KAO KAN, Lao's second
son, open his coat and remove a silver-plated pistol. Indiana
looks worried. Willie doesn't notice as she fixes her make-up
and coyly teases Indiana.<P> WILLIE
Well -- I thought archaeologists
were always funny little men
searching for their mummies --
(yelping)
Aaahhh!<P> She looks down terrified at the knife Indy is poking against her
ribs.<P> WILLE (Cont'd)
I was only kidding, can't you
take a joke -- ?
(to Lao)
Lao, he's got a knife!<P> INDIANA
Put the gun away, sonny.<P> Kao Kan glances at his father. Lao finally nods to his son and
he slips the pistol back into his pocket.<P> INDIANA
Now I suggest you pay me what you
promised -- or your girlfriend
here is going to be squealing a
new tune.<P> The ritzy patrons at the tables nearby are unaware of the tawdry
drama quietly unfolding at this table.<P> Willie eyes the blade and whimpers. She looks imploringly at Lao
and he slowly reaches into his pocket. He puts ten gold coins
next to the cash on the table.<P> Indy leans forward to look at the gold coins -- so intently that
he fails to notice Kao Kan spilling some powder into Indy's cham-
pagne glass!<P> INDIANA
Try again Lao -- the deal was
more.<P> The knife pokes Willie and she whimpers again. Lao reaches into
another pocket and brings out a folded piece of rice paper -- he
opens it and a large diamond and ruby spill out onto the table.<P> INDIANA (Cont'd)
Bingo...you see, Lao, with a
but of persuasion, even you can
be an honest fellow.<P> Indy smiles and jabs the knife into the middle of the table.
Then he lifts his champagne glass in a toast to Lao -- who
watches expectantly as Indiana moves the glass toward his lips --<P> Suddenly Willie stands angrily, jostling Indy's arm so that he
doesn't drink his champagne.<P> WILLIE
Look at this! He put a hole
in my dress from Paris!<P> Lao sees Indy put his champagne glass down and he snarls at Wil-
lie --<P> LAO
Sit down!<P> Willie quickly obeys. Lao forces a smile at Indy and lifts his
glass to seal the deal --<P> LAO (Cont'd)
To your health, Dr. Jones.<P> Lao sips hs champagne and watches hopefully as Indy picks up his
glass and this time Indy does drink the champagne. Then he
reaches for the cash --<P> But Chen grins and puts a silver snuff bottle next to the cash,
gold and jewels -- he tips the little bottle over and some white
powder spills out of it --<P> INDIANA
What's that?<P> LAO
A bonus, Dr. Jones. That is
poison. You just drank the
rest of it.<P> Indiana examines his champagne glass and sees a residue at the
bottom of it. He swallows and feels sick, wondering it it's fear
or the poison already taking effect.<P> LAO (Cont'd)
There is an antidote for this
poison. You give me Nurhachi --
I give you the antidote.<P> Indiana is sweating. Willie looks at him and sees Indy's hand
shaking.<P> LAO (Cont'd)
The poison works fast, Dr. Jones.
Where is Nurhachi?<P> Indiana finally reaches into his pocket. Next to the cash, gold,
jewels and poison, Indiana sets down a beautiful small box. Lao
and his men stare hypnotically at the exquisite gold and enamel
box.<P> WILLIE
(nervously)
This Nurhachi's a very small guy.<P> Nobody pays any attention to her as Lao reaches for the box.<P> INDIANA
Inside are the remains of Nur-
hachi -- the first Emperor of the
Manchu Dynasty.<P> Lao opens the box carefully and stares reverently at the grey
powder inside.<P> INDIANA (Cont'd)
Now what about the antidote,
Lao.<P> LAO
(holding the box)
At last I have the ashes of my
sacred ancestor!<P> WILLIE
So, what's the big deal? Let
me see it --<P> Qillie grabs Lao's arm and some of the precious ashes spill out
of the gold box. Stunned by this desecration of his ancestor,
Lao grabs Willie by the wrist and twists her arm --<P> LAO
You fool!<P> WILLIE
Ow, you're hurting me, you miser-
able little hood!<P> INDIANA
Let go of her, Lao. And give me
the antidote.<P> Lao just laughs evilly -- until a waiter moves up behind Lao and
the crimelord suddenly stiffens. He lets go of Willie's wrist
and raises his hands off the table. Chen stops collecting the
money and jewels.<P> Kao Kan tenses and Indy smiles at Wu Han, the Chinese waiter with
the scar, who is standing behind Lao. Wu Han has a towel over
his hand -- under it, he has a pistol pressed against Lao's
spine.<P> INDIANA (Cont'd)
(smiling at Wu Han)
I like the service here.<P> WILLIE
(puzzled)
Hey, he's not a waiter...<P> INDIANA
No, Wu Han's an old friend I
brought along.
(to Lao)
So, the game's not over. Put
the antidote on the table, Lao.<P> Lao carefully reaches into his pocket and puts a small glass vial
of liquid next to the cash, gold, jewels, poison and sacred box.
Indy looks relieved as he reaches for the vial of antidote --
then he hears a muffled report! And another!<P> Wu Han groans and sways. Indy starts to stand but Chen immedi-
ately turns the smoking pistol with the silencer that he used to
kill Wu Han -- Indy sees it pointed at him now and he remains in
his seat.<P> Kao Kan stands and grabs Wu Han, easing the phoney waiter into
the chair he just vacated. The muffled shooting hasn't attracted
any attention. The nightclub activity continues an Indy speaks
emotionally to his dying friend.<P> INDIANA
Wu Han -- listen to me -- I'm
going to get you out of here.<P> In pain, Wu Han looks at Indy and struggles to speak --<P> WU HAN
Not this time, my friend...
(smiling bravely)
I followed you on many adventures --
but into the great Unknown Mystery,
I go first, Indy...<P> Wu Han dies and slumps forward. Indiana is shattered by the
death of his old friend.<P> LAO
Don't be sad, Dr. Jones -- you
will soon join him.<P> Indy's gaze shifts from his dead friend to Lao's sneering face.
Then Indy sees the murderous Chen giggling perversely. Indy's
anger is compounded by the poison burning in his gut and his vis-
ion of Chen's ugly face blurs into a double image --<P> Indy stands up unsteadily. Chen assumes he's about to keel over
from the poison -- but Indy suddenly turns and grabs a real wai-
ter at another table. The waiter holds a long skewer of roasted
pigeons that he's just set afire --<P> Indy grabs the skewer of pigeons flambee and hurls is across the
table! Chen fires and misses -- and screams as the skewer stabs
into his chest and the burning pigeons flame in front of his hor-
rified face!<P> This the other tables definitely notice. There are screams and
all hell breaks loose. Indiana shoves past Willie and reaches
for the vial on the table --<P> INDIANA
The antidote -- !<P> But he's grabbed from behind by Kao Kan. Indy elbows the punk,
reaches back and grabs his head -- and somersaults Kao Kan onto
the table!<P> As nubmer two son crashes into the table, the impact sends the
Emperor Nurhachi's ashes billowing into Lao's stricken face!<P> Indiana yells as he sees the vial of antidote rolling across the
table -- and falling!<P> Indiana dives and catches the antidote just before it hits the
floor -- then Indy's hand is brutally stomped on by one of Lao's
henchmen and the vial rolls away.<P> Indiana angrily raises his head, smashing it up into the hench-
man's groin -- the man howls like a banshee and hobbles away.

Meanwhile, Willie watches Lao grabbing for cash from the table.
Willie lunges past the pigeon-skewered Chen to snatch the jewels,
but unfortunately Kao Kan knocks them off the table as he leaps
to attack Indy.<P> Indiana scrambles on his hands and knees after the rolling vial.
People keep kicking it -- he almost has it when Willie runs into
him, trips and lands on her back.<P> INDIANA
Look out, damn it, I need that
antidote!<P> WILLIE
Who cares? Where's that diamond!<P> Gunfire explodes and they both scramble in different directions.
Indy dives through the fleeing nightclub patrons and slides be-
hind a water-spewing fountain. Water kicks up as Indy is shot at
by Lao and his henchmen.<P> Indy sees the vial of antidote kicked again and it spins across
the marble floor -- feeling the poison, Indy shakes his head
groddily and splashes water on his face.<P> Meanwhile, Willie is chasing her diamond, shoving through the
panicked crowd. She spots the diamond! Another elegantly
dresses soman is bending to pick it up --<P> WILLIE
(acidly polite)
Excuse me, but I believe that's
my diamond!<P> Willie smiles and suddenly kicks the woman in the butt! Willie
reaches to get the diamond but not before the other woman tackles
her.<P> Behind the fountain, Indiana makes a break -- he runs and dives
on top of a serving cart. The wheeled cart hurtles toward an un-
suspecting gunman, crashes into him from behind and sends him
flying head first into a row of ice buckets.<P> Nearby, Willie slugs the other lady in the jaw and grabs for the
elusive diamond just as the ice buckets showers ice across the
floor -- which camouflages the diamond!<P> WILLIE
Aw nuts!<P> Searching desperately for the jewel, Willie sees the vial of
antidote spinning across the floor --as it slides by, she grabs
it.<P> INDIANA (O.S.)
Hey,doll! Don't move!<P> She sees Indy speeding by atop the serving cart. Lao and his
gunmen rush out to block the way. Indy rolls off the cart and
slides behind a potted palm as Lao's men open fire again.<P> INDIANA (Cont'd)
(shouting to Willie)
Hey, don't go away! I need that!<P> Willie smiles meanly as she slips the vial down the front of her
dress, thumbs her nose at Indiana and walks away.<P> INDIANA (Cont'd)
If I wasn't dying, I'd kill her...<P> Hiding behind the palm tree, Indiana looks around and spots a gi-
ant statue at the side of the stage. Indy makes a break for it.<P> As the gunmen open fire, Indy springs onto a chair -- jumps onto
a table -- and leaps onto the stage. He grabs the golden broad-
sword from the Chinese warrior statue!<P> As bullets smash into the statue, Indiana hides behind it. Then
he jumps out and swings the large sword toward the enormous brass
gong.<P> The crimson cord holding the gong is SLASHED! Indy slings the
sword at his assailants and gives the three-meter-high gong a
helpful shove --<P> The giant gong rolls and echoes as it crashes down the marble
steps. Indiana ducks behind it as it gains momentum and rolls
across the dance floor.<P> Using the gong as an enormous shield, Indy evades the gunfire ex-
ploding -- bullets ricochet off the rolling brass gong as Indy
runs behind it.<P> Ahead, Willie hurries toward an exit -- she hears something and
turns -- her eyes go wide as she sees the mammoth gong bearing
down on her!<P> Willie yells as Indiana grabs her arm and pulls her behind the
gong with him --<P> Lao watches amazed as he and his gunmen dodge tables trying to
get better firing positions -- and more henchmen come into the
club now and start firing machine guns!<P> As bullets clang against the gong, Indiana and Willie run behind
it. Willie hollers as they head directly for a towering, floor-
to-ceiling window!<P> Indiana grabs Willie around the waist and, after the huge gong
crashes through the stained-glass window, they both fly after it!<P>6. EXT. "THE DRAGON" NIGHTCLUB - NIGHT 6.<P> In a shower of sparkling glass, the enormous gong sails out and
crashes down a sloping green-tiled roof. Indiana Jones and Wil-
lie Scott hurtle into the night air after it!<P> The gong rolls down the roof and they hit the tiles behind it,
Indiana holding onto Willie as they roll one-over-the-other
toward the edge -- Willie screams as they fall into thin air!<P> Their entwined bodies plummet three stories: ripping through a
third-floor awning, crashing through an old man's mattress on a
second-floor balcony --<P> Finally they smash through the convertible top of a parked Duesen-
berg and fall into the back seat!<P>7. INT. THE DUESENBERG 7.<P> Willie sits up wide-eyed, speechless and amazed to be alive.
Then she sees an equally astonished Short Round looking at them
from the front seat.<P> SHORT ROUND
Wow! Holy smoke! Crash landing!<P> INDIANA
Step on it, Short Round!<P> SHORT ROUND
Okey doke, Indy! Hold onto your
potatoes!<P> The twelve-year-old Chinese kid turns his baseball cap bill-
backwards and steps on the gas! The tires squeal as the car
roars off --<P> WILLIE
For crying out loud, a kid's driv-
ing the car?!<P> INDIANA
Relax, I've been giving him lessons.<P>8. EXT. THE NIGHTCLUB - NIGHT 8.<P> The Duesenberg races past the entrace to the nightclub as Lao
and his man rush out and jump into two black sedans. The sedans
screech off in pursuit of the Duesenberg.<P>9. INT. THE DUESENBERG 9.<P> As Short Round eagerly swerves around a corner, Willie holds on
for dear life. Indiana suddenly puts his hand down the front of
Willie's dress --<P> WILLIE
Listen, we just met for crissake!
I'm not that kind of gril!<P> INDIANA
Don't get your hopes up -- where's
the antidote?<P> Indiana withdraws his hand, having finally found the vial. He
opens is quickly, tips the vial to his lips and grimaces as he
swallows the stuff.<P> WILLIE
You don't look very good.<P> INDIANA
Poison never agrees with me.
(shouting forward)
Pull a right, Short Round, and
head for the Wang Poo bridge!<P> SHORT ROUND
Check! Gotcha!<P> As the car accelerates, Indy peers out the back window at their
pursuers. Willie notices her reflection in the side window --<P> WILLIE
Look at what you've done to me!
I'm a mess! My lipstick's smeared,
I broke two nails, I've got an aw-
ful run in my stocking -- !<P> Gunfire suddenly explodes, bullets whizz through the canvas top
and the rear window shatters and sprays glass! Willie ducks and
cringes terrified in the corner --<P> INDIANA
Somehow I think you've got bigger
problems.<P> Indy grabs his shoulder bag and pulls a pistol out of it. He
pokes the gun through the broken window and starts firing back at
their pursuers -- then he turns and looks ahead.<P> INDIANA (Cont'd)
There, Shorty! Through the
tunnel!<P> Through the windows we see the car racing into a tunnel. Lights
from the pursuing cars flash through the rear window and gunfire
echoes in the tunnel.<P> WILLIE
What're we going to do?! Where're
we going?!<P> INDIANA
The airport...No, look out,
Short Round! Left, left!<P> Indy reaches over the front seat and helps Short Round navigate.<P>10. EXT. A SHANGHAI SQUARE - NIGHT 10.<P> The Duesenberg tears around the square, followed by Lao's two se-
dans. People on the street dive for cover -- coolies pulling
rickshaws go into hyper-jov --lanterns spanning the street crash
down and are dragged behind the Duesenberg. Bullets exlode and
amazed prostitutes watch the cars zoom past.<P>11. INT. THE DUESENBERG - NIGHT 11.<P> The chaotic chase continues -- bullets whine past and the shred-
ded convertible top whips in the wind.<P> INDIANA
(shouting)
You got the tickets, Short Round?<P> SHORT ROUND
Sure, Indy -- three tickets!
You, me and Wu Han --<P> Shorty throws an envelope back and Indy looks at the three
tickets.<P> INDIANA
(sadly)
Wu Han's not coming, Shorty.<P> Unaware of what happened at the club, Short Round thinks a mo-
ment.<P> SHORT ROUND
Don't worry, Indy. Short Round
number one bodyguard now!<P> Willie reaches for the extra ticket.
