Thank the maker someone else feels this way. That character is ridiculous. Indy's life is threatened on a regular basis, and he kills people wherever he goes, so, yeah, he'll bring a little kid along for the fun. Again, nothing against the actor, but Shortround is an unbelievably bad idea. "You call him Dr Jones, doll." Oy! The Jar-Jar of the Indy flms.I agree, let's not forget how annoying Shortround is in the entire movie too.
