      • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
        Near the beginning of the episode, Peter asks if the chalice has powers 'like Indiana Jones stuff'. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was a 1989 action/adventure movie starring Harrison Ford as an adventurous archeologist seeking to recover a chalice supposedly used by Jesus.
