The three go into more detail about the pivotal scene in the temple. In which the Cairo temple from Raiders of The Lost Ark could have easily been lumped in with the Indian temple from The Temple of Doom at this early stage. Many elements are talked about to give the scene excitement for those summer movie goers.
Briefly, they return to one idea involving this ancient town that was once filled with water, but is now dried up by sand. The idea is revisited for talk about water leaks and sands traps within the temple. One they also debate over whether they should have snakes or their smaller cousins, asps.
More bantering about Sabu enters here, about how much involvement he should have in this scene and what the outcome should be. One suggestion involves getting him and his father Sallah back to London, for their own safety. At another point, they discuss whether or not to have Indy abandon him and Marion Ravenwood to go after an armored truck.
Of course, the character of Sabu was dropped at some point during this film’s development, and this allowed Sallah to become a more prominent character in Raiders. The actor who played Sallah, John Rhys-Davies, also reprised the role in The Last Crusade.
