Curator Terrence Bey: Oh look at this! Sons of the pharaohs! Give me frogs! Flies, locusts! Anything but you. Compared to you the other plagues were a joy!
Evie: I'm so very sorry, it was an accident.
Curator Terrence Bey: An accident? My dear girl, when Ramses destroyed Syria, that was an accident, you are a catastrophe! Look at my library! Why do I put up with you?
Evie: Well, you put up with me because I can read and write in ancient Egyptian, decipher hieroglyphics and hieratics... and well (getting angry) I am the only person within five thousand miles who can properly code and catalogue this library, that's why!
- Evie: Mister O'Connell, can you look me in the eye, and guarantee me that this isn't all some kind of a flimflam? Because I am warning you…
Rick O'Connell: You're 'warning me'? Listen, lady, let me put it to you this way. My whole damn garrison believed in the legend of Hamunaptra so much, that - without orders - they marched halfway across Libya and into Egypt just to 'find' that city. And when we got there... all we found was sand, and blood.
Evie: (Stunned into silence)
Rick: ... Lemme get your bags.
Jonathan: Yes, you're right. Filthy, rude, complete scoundrel, nothing to like there at all.
Evie: (Gives him an exasperated look)

Evie: Oh no! What are you doing here?
Warden: I'm here to protect my investment, thank you very much.
- Beni: It is better to be at the right hand of the devil than in his path. As long as I serve him, I am immune.
Rick: (smashing him against a wardrobe) Immune from what?
Beni: Piszkos állat...
Rick: What did you say?!
Beni: I don't wanna tell you- you'll just hurt me some more.
Rick: What are you looking for? And try not to lie to me! (Holds Beni up against a ceiling fan)
Beni: AHH! The book! The black book they found in Hamunaptra! He wants it back! He said to me it would be worth its weight in gold!
Johnathan: What does he want the book for?
Beni: Oh come on, I don't know... (Rick shoves him closer to the fan) AH! Something about bringing his dead girlfriend back to life! But that's all, I swear!
