In the prologue, young Indiana Jones (River Phoenix) discovers an artifact that "belongs in a museum." It gets stolen, then the adult Indy (Harrison Ford) embarks on a quest to rescue his cantankerous father Professor Henry Jones, Sr. (Sean Connery), who is the foremost authority on The Holy Grail. The Nazis are hot on the trail for the Grail, too - so Indy and his father get caught in a race against time to get to the Holy Grail first.

Henry: We named the dog Indiana.
Sallah: The dog? You are named after the dog.
Marcus: Can we go home please?
Indiana: I have a lot of fond memories of that dog.
