Donovan shoots Indy's dad in order to force Indy to co-operate. Indy gets past the traps, and finds a knight guarding a room full of Holy Grails. Donovan asks which is the correct one, but the knight simply says that Donovan must choose himself. Donovan asks Else to choose it, and she deliberately gives him the wrong one, so that when he drinks from it he ages to death and disintegrates. Indy chooses the plainest cup there, which turns out to be the true Grail. He then uses the Grail to heal his father. Elsa then carries the Grail over a seal on the floor (which the knight had told them not to do), and the place starts breaking up. Elsa falls down a bottomless pit trying to reach the Grail, and Indy nearly does the same, only stopping when his father asks him not to. They then get out before the place explodes. It's then revealed that Indy took his nickname from the dog he owned as a kid.
Plot hole: When Indy is stepping on the letters at the end, trying to spell out God's name, he steps on J, incorrectly, causing it to collapse. When he falls through, however, he grabs onto another letter so as not to fall down. The letters he grabs onto and pulls himself up are an L and a Y, which are not in the word Iehova, so should have collapsed too. (01:46:20)
Question: Are Indiana Jones and his father immortal at the end of the movie or does the grail's power become null and void when it crosses the seal? The knight said something like "The grail cannot cross the seal, that is the price of immortality." That makes it sound like they are not immortal at the end but I still want to check.Blibbetyblip
