2: Ordinary World Indy is a professor of ancient archeology. Indy is regarded highly by the other professors at the university teaching archeology. This fits the Ordinary World because Indy usually doesn't search for Ancient Magical Religious Artifacts.
3: Call to Adventure Indy is asked about the ark of the Covenent by United States Government Officials. Indy doesn't know much about it but tells them what he knows. Once he gets home His friend comes over and tells Indy that The United States Government officials want him to get the ark before the Nazis.
4: Refusal Of the Call Indy says things about not wanting to go, and stops packing for a couple of seconds. This fits the Refusal because Indy is questioning himself and if he can do it.
5: Meeting With the mentor After getting into Egypt Indy meets with Sallah who helps Indy with all of his problems, jobs, little quests and ideas that go along with them in the movie. I think that this fits the meeting with the mentor because Sallah is a man who gives Indy help with his troubles and he gets Indy moving again after his death experience.
6: Crossing the first Threshold Indy finishes packing his clothes and his gun for precaution, Indy gets on the plane to Nepal to confront Marian, and try to get the head piece of the staff of Ra from her.This fits the crossing of the first threshold because he finely sets out on the journey to find the Ark of the Covenent.
7: Tests, Allies, Enemies TestsTests range from finding and getting the Ark of the Covenant, rescuing Marian, to fighting an Egyptian sword fighter. Allies Indy's Allies range from an ex flame Marian, an Egyptian digger Sallah, and a Pirate who tries to help him get back to America. Enemies Indy's enemies range from Nazis, a gang of Egyptian swordsmen, to Ballaq another Archaeologist.
8: Approach of the inmost cave After Indy has shot the Egyptian swordsman standing between him and the basket Marian is stuck in. The men carrying Marian put her and the basket she's in on a truck with explosives, Indy shoots the driver and accidentally causes the truck to crash and explode. Indy goes to see Ballaq and tries to get himself killed, because he thinks he killed Marion. This fits the Inmost cave because Indy gives up on his journey and life for a brief moment only to get back on track when Sallah tells him it'll be ok.
9: The Ordeal After Indy , Sallah, and a group of diggers unearth the well of souls, Sallah asks "why is the floor slithering." Indy being curious asks for the torch and throws it into the chamber. Then Indy answers, "It's covered in snakes," "Why did it have to be snakes?" Snakes are his one fear. Indy then throws down more torches to make an area big enough for him to stand and walk around in down in the Well of Souls. This fits the Ordeal because snakes are Indy's biggest fear, and he has to face it to get the Ark of the Covenant.
10: The Reward After getting past the snakes Indy and Sallah travel through the Well of Souls. At the end of the well is the Ark of the Covenant lifting it up with two wooden poles. Indy and Sallah have reached the Ark completing Indy's original journey goal. Sallah climbs the rope out of the Well of souls letting Indy tie the Ark to another rope.This fits the Reward because Indy finaly gets to the ark and gets it before the Nazis.
11: The Road Back After the Ark is pulled out of the Well of Souls Nazis look down into the Well. Marion who wasn't actually in the basket that had been in the car that exploded is tossed into the Well of Souls with Indy to die with the snakes. Indy and Marion are sealed into the Well and must find a way out, to get the ark back from the Nazis. This fits the road back because Indy must get back on his original journey and get the Ark once more.
12: ResurrectionAfter The Nazis steal the Ark from Indy the second time, Indy and Marion are captured and are brought up to the top of the mountian where the Nazis are going to open the Ark. Indy and Marion must keep their eyes closed if they want to not be killed by the spirits inside the Ark.This fits the Resurrection because Indy keeps his eyes closed and talks Marion into avoiding temptation and keeping her eyes closed, and it takes all of his strength to do so.
13: Return With The Elixir After Indy and Marion get the Ark back to the United States, and he talks to the government officials who first gave him the quest, Indy and Marion are seen walking away from a building hand in hand. This fits the Elixir because Indy finally finished his goal, but he also got Marion as an Extra reward.
