    We all know that Temple of Doom took place 1 year before Raiders and I just want to know why neither Willie or Short Round made any appearrance in Raiders? How come Indy never mentions either of them? I can't believe that he would abandon a little child like Short Round and forget all about him not to mention that he would blow off Willie just so he could reconnect with Marion.

    Comments?

    They fell in love and got married. Indy put all thought of them out of his mind, out of sheer jealousy. Which partner he was jealous over remains a mystery to this day. :D

    Well, he may have found a good home for Short Round and as for Willie? Meh, who would want to be with her?

    Oh yes. I forgot that Willie Scott is not the "ideal" action hero's girl.

    Ha. I was going to say that Willie ran off with Spielberg.

    Look these characters were fun for Temple of Doom but they weren't critical to his life and surely didn't deserve any mention in Raiders or any other movie. Though it was funny that people were speculating on Short Round's possible involvement in Indy 4. Would have been funny to see that guy in the Wedding scene.

    If you click the Willie Scott link it does not mention what she does besides return to the U.S. with Indy and Short Round. I hav eonyl read one Indy comic and a choose your own adventure style novel so I am not familier with the Indy EU at all.

    First thing into my mind is not very family-friendly, so I'll refrain. Just extrapolate from how short round treats willy as a child. :p

    Even though nothing from Lucasfilm will ever top Palpatine telling Anakin Skywalker a Sith fairy-tale in an operahouse =P~, the following would surely stand as the second, crowning nerdgasmic-scenario...


    Indy, Henry, Brody and Shorty move in together post-Crusade. They play cards, scream at each other, and venture out in '45 to fight Imperial Japan. Best of all, we'd get to hear Sean Connery intone: "Short Round! Gather your chopsticks!"

    I nominate that as the best idea ever.
