Set during Raiders of the Lost Ark, after The Raven burns down-Indy and Marion on their way out of Nepal.
"Since you seem to be confused, Professor, let me remind you that 'partner' is not spelled 'c-o-n-c-u-b-i-n-e'
Marion took down her improvised barricade and tugged at her borrowed shirt as she started for the bed. “I left one jug of the water,” she offered. “We can heat it up in the morning if you want a shave.”
Indy looked her up and down, and let out a low whistle. Willie Scott, hung with pearls and diamonds, couldn’t hold a candle to Marion Ravenwood in an old shirt and a smile.
“Wouldn’t you rather I shaved tonight?” he asked softly. “Since we seem to be sharing the bed…”
That man. Marion put her hands on her hips and glared at him. “Since you seem to be confused, Professor, let me remind you that ‘partner’ is not spelled ‘c-o-n-c-u-b-i-n-e’. We may have to share the blankets-but you can keep your sorry ass over on your own side, thank you just the same.”
Indy scowled. “What? Look, honey, it’s not like we’ve never….”
“So? Doesn’t mean I owe you. Besides, we’ve got something more important than making whoopee to think about. This is the first time it’s really been safe to talk. “
“We could talk about how beautiful you are...”
Marion rolled her eyes. “Or we could talk about how full of shit you are.”
She paused, then resumed in a more conciliatory tone. “But seriously, Jones, what’s the plan? I’m assuming you’ve got one…”
Indy rolled out of bed and took a step toward her. She flinched ever so slightly, and he felt a hot prickle of shame.
“Take it easy, I’m not gonna hurt you” he said roughly. “Get in bed for God’s sake. I’m the better shot so I should be between you and the door.”
When he slid in beside her she leaned over and pecked his cheek.
