"Schnell... schnell!"―Second German Agent[src]
The Second German Agent was a Nazi working in Cairo, Egypt working with a partner. He used the one-eyed Monkey Man and his Capuchin monkey as an informant, but let his partner lead a group of local toughs on the streets.
In 1936, the agent and his partner monitored the movements of archaeologist Indiana Jones, through the Monkey Man. When Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood were in a Cairo marketplace, their monkey took off and reported to his master. The Monkey Man then ran into a shadowy hallway to meet with the two agents. After exchanging Nazi salutes with the one-eyed assassin, the two agents went off to summon the band of henchmen to attack the Americans.
Watching the marketplace from an upstairs balcony, the agent entered a room and inspected the assembled hooded ruffians before his partner entered and indicated that it was time to go intercept Jones and Ravenwood.
Not present at the alley where the first batch of attackers failed to apprehend the couple, the agent followed his partner in the search for the fleeing Ravenwood. While on her trail, the two Germans led a group down a passageway, and passed by a pile of baskets. When the monkey caught their attention with its screeching, the agent turned while his partner called out and all of the them doubled back to capture Ravenwood hiding in a basket.
The agents then went to the truck, loaded with explosives, to wait for the men carrying Ravenwood in a basket. When Jones arrived at the truck, the agent climbed aboard the back of the truck with the cargo, as his partner and some of the goons opened fire on Jones. With Jones driven back behind cover, the agent yelled to the driver to hurry out of the alley, and the truck started up. Jones shot the Arab gunman, and then shot the driver, which cause the truck to lose control. Trapped in the back, the agent was unable to escape, and presumably died when the truck tipped over and exploded.
Behind the scenesEdit
The role of the second German Agent was not credited in Raiders of the Lost Ark, despite having spoken lines. The Second German Agent wears the same costume throughout the Cairo scenes: light tan suit, a patterned tie, and a hat.
In the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! at Disney World, this German Agent and the first German Agent are both absent from the scene with Indy and Marion fighting the Arabs. In their place is a single black suited German Agent, who also drives the truck, as opposed to the second German Agent being the passenger of one of the Cairo thugs.
