Next discussed are two possible supporting characters, one from the U.S. Army and one of the Japanese samurai being featured in a more prominent role. Characterizations during these talks include having the Army guy being absolutely clueless about The Ark. While the Japanese samurai being more refined around art galleries and museums, despite being a savage elsewhere.
More discussions involve The Ark itself, should it be in a tomb or somewhere out in the open where others do not often pay attention? Also, whether they should film The Nazis and not even show the heroes. Yet another idea involved using a second unit crew with the actors only doing voice over work. Being the big finale that it was, they would have brain stormed the hell out of it.
The three of them then went back to the heroine, mentioning she and Indy should have a confrontation involving their past. Along with her either delivering a slap or a punch to his face. With this in mind, they spring boarded into a discussion about how she should be tough, instead of manic or frantic. Also, they felt at the time she should resemble Veronica Lake.
