O'Connell (Rick)
O'Connell: I've been to Hamunaptra.
Evelyn: You swear?
O'Connell: Every damn day.
O'Connell: I only gamble with my life, never my money.
Evelyn: By the way, why did you kiss me?
O'Connell: I don't know. I was about to be hanged. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
Evelyn: Ooh! [Gets up and walks away in a huff]
O'Connell: [Calling after her] What? What'd I say?
O'Connell: So what's the scam, Beni? You take them out into the middle of the desert and then you leave 'em to rot?
Beni: Unfortunately, no. These Americans are smart. They pay me only half now, half when I get them back to Cairo, so this time I must go all the way.
O'Connell: Them's the breaks, huh?
O'Connell: Can you swim?
Evelyn: Well, of course I can swim if the occasion calls for it.
O'Connell: [throwing her overboard] Trust me, it calls for it.
Warden Gad Hassan: What are we going to do? What are we going to do?
O'Connell: [Jumping overboard] Wait here. I'll get help.

[Jonathon pays the man for the camels, O'Connell takes two, Jonathon takes two]
Jonathon: Yes, happy. Very good.

O'Connell: [O'Connell sees Evelyn in a beautiful black dress] Awfully.

O'Connell: What about my buddy Beni?
Mr. Daniels: Nah, he scrammed out of there before we even opened the damn thing.

[Hamunaptra is about to be destroyed]
O'Connell: Time to go.
Evelyn: [after destroying the museum library] Oops.
[In a darkened room]
Evelyn: Abdul? [No answer] Mohammed? [No answer]... Bob?

Evelyn: Well I wish you'd join them sooner rather than later before you ruin my career the way you ruined yours.
Evelyn: [about O'Connell] Personally, I think he's filthy, rude, a complete scoundrel. I don't like him one bit.

O'Connell: Sorry. Didn't mean to scare ya.
Evelyn: The only thing that scares me, Mr. O'Connell, are your manners.
Evelyn: Oh, get over it! It wasn't that good of a kiss.
Evelyn: The map! The map! We forgot the map!
O'Connell: Relax. I'm the map. It's all up here. [Points to his head]
Evelyn: Oh, that's comforting.

Evelyn: Oh God, I hate it when these things do that.
O'Connell: Is he supposed to look like that?
Evelyn: No, I've never seen a mummy like that, he's still... still...
O'Connell, Jonathan: ...juicy.
Evelyn: Look, I... I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O'Connell, but I am proud of what I am.
O'Connell: And what is that?
Evelyn: I... am a librarian.
[Evelyn is drunk]
Evelyn: I bet you're thinking, what's a place like me doing in a girl like this?
O'Connell: Something like that, yeah
O'Connell: That's called "stealing," you know.
Evelyn: According to you and my brother it's called "borrowing."

Evelyn: “For all eternity,” you idiot.
Evelyn: Have you got any bright ideas?
O'Connell: I'm thinking, I'm thinking...
Evelyn: You better think of something fast, because, if he turns me into a mummy you're the first one I'm coming after.
Evelyn: You know, nasty little fellows such as yourself always get their comeuppance.
Beni: They do?
Evelyn and Im-Ho-Tep: “Death is only the beginning.”

Jonathan: That just makes you more gullible.
Jonathan: [Sees Americans enjoying shooting people] Americans. [Man with hook comes after him and one of the Americans save him] I say, bloody good show, chaps! And did I panic? I think not! [There's an explosion and Jonathon screams and falls off the boat]
Jonathan: I never did like camels. They're filthy buggers, they smell, they bite, they spit.
[The warden spits]
Jonathan: Disgusting.
[Entering the Sah-Netjer]
Jonathan: Whew! What is that god-awful stench? [Sees the warden right behind him]
Jonathan: Oh.
Beni: Yes, wells, there's only four of you… and fifteen of me. Your odds are not so great, O'Connell.
O'Connell: I've had worse.
Jonathon: Yeah, me too.
O'Connell: So let me get this straight, they ripped out your guts and they stuffed them in jars?
Evelyn: And they took out your heart as well. Oh, and do you know how they took out your brain?
Jonathan: Evy, I don't think that we need to know this
Evelyn: They took a sharp, red hot poker, stick it up your nose, scramble things about a bit, and then rip it all out through your nostrils.
O'Connell: Ooh, that's gotta hurt.
Evelyn: It's called mummification, you'll be dead when they do this.
O'Connell: For the record, if I don't make it out of here, don't put me down for mummification.

[Jonathan looks through the warden's pouch. Suddenly he cuts himself on something]

O'Connell: [To Evelyn] Take this. Stay here. [Gives her a gun and gets up and leaves]
Evelyn: No, wait, wait! Wait for me. Wait!
Jonathon: Evy! Excuse me, but didn't the man just say “stay here”? Evy!
Dr. Bey: [About Imhotep] And it appears he's already chosen his human sacrifice. [Looks at Evelyn]
Jonathon: Bad luck, old mum.
[After O'Connell has picked Evelyn up and put her in her bedroom to stop her from coming with him]
Evelyn: Jonathon! O'Connell! What do you think you are doing? Jonathon!
Jonathon: Sorry, he's a bit… tall.
O'Connell: [To Evelyn] Are you alright?
Jonathan: [Standing several feet behind O'Connell] I'm not sure...
[A scarab has just crawled under Jonathan's skin]

Ardeth Bay
Ardeth Bay: [narrating] Thebes, City of the Living. Crown jewel of Pharaoh Seti the First. Home of Imhotep, Pharaoh's high priest, keeper of the dead. Birthplace of Anck Su Namun, Pharaoh's mistress. No other man was allowed to touch her. But for their love, they were willing to risk life itself.

Beni: You always did have more balls than brains.
[Both laugh]
O'Connell: Goodbye, Beni. [Throws Beni overboard]
[After the shipwreck]
Beni: Hey, O'Connell! Looks to me like I've got all the horses.
O'Connell: Hey, Beni! Looks to me like you're on the wrong side of the river.
Beni: [To Mr. Burns] Prince Imhotep thanks you for your hospitality... and for your eyes... and for your tongue... but I'm afraid more is needed.
O'Connell: You came back from the desert with a new friend, didn't you Beni?
Beni: What friend? You are my only friend.
Beni: As long as I serve him, I am immune.
O'Connell: Immune from what?
Beni: Piszkas allat.
O'Connell: What did you say?
Beni: I don't want to tell you. You'll just hurt me some more.
Beni: It is better to be the right hand of the devil than in his path.
O'Connell: You're gonna get yours, Beni! You hear me? You're gonna get yours!
Beni: Oh, like I've never heard *that* before.

Evelyn: And what did he say?
Warden Gad Hassan: That he was just looking for a good time.
Evelyn: Where are they taking him?
Warden Gad Hassan: To be hanged. Apparently, he had a VERY good time.
Evelyn:I will give you 100 pounds to save this man's life.

Dr. Bey(the Curator)
Dr. Bey: [stutters in disbelief] 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!
Evelyn: I am so very sorry it was an accident.
Dr. Bey: My darling girl, when Ramses destroyed Syria, that was an accident. You are a catastrophe!
Evelyn: There is only one man I know who can possibly give us some answers.
[Sees Ardeth Bay]
Evelyn: You?
Dr. Bey: Miss Carnahan. Gentlemen.
Evelyn: [about Ardeth] What is he doing here?
Dr. Bey: Do you really want to know, or would you rather just shoot us?
O'Connell: After what I just saw, I'm willing to go on a little faith here.
Dr. Bey: We are part of an ancient secret society. For three thousand years we have guarded the City of the Dead. We are sworn at manhood to do any and all in our power to stop the High Priest Imhotep from ever being reborn into this world.

Evelyn: And you think that justifies the killing of innocent people?
Dr. Bey: To stop this creature? Let me think...
Dr. Bey, Ardeth Bay: YES!.

Mr. Daniels
Mr. Daniels: Stupid superstitious bastard.

Winston: So, what does your little problem have to do with his Majesty's Royal Air Corps?
O'Connell: Not a damn thing.
Winston: Is it dangerous?
O'Connell: Well, you probably won't live through it.
Winston: By Jove, do you really think so?
Jonathan: Well, everyone else we've bumped into has died. Why should you be any different?
[O'Connell is about to be hanged]
Hangman: Any last requests, pig?
O'Connell: Yeah. Loosen the knot and let me go.
