The Monkey Man poisons a bowl of dates.

"Bad dates."
Sallah Mohammed Faisel el-Kahir[src]

The date is a type of fruit.


In 1935, Indiana Jones's doctor, Frodente, encouraged the archaeologist to eat dates to improve his diet.

A year later, in Cairo, Egypt, a one-eyed man sneaked into the residence of astronomer Imam. His intentions were to poison a bowl of dates, to kill Indiana Jones with, under orders from Nazi forces lead by Colonel Dietrich and Major Toht. Imam's apprentice Abu unwittingly served the bowl to Indy, unaware the fruits were contaminated with deadly poison. When the archaeologist attempted to eat one, his friend Sallah quickly caught the date before it could enter his mouth, noticing the corpse of a hungry Capuchin monkey on the floor, who had died from eating them.
