One day, while studying in the reading room of the Marshall College Library, he was disrupted as a motorcycle driven by a greaser skidded to a stop against his chair. Noticing that the motorcycle's passenger was his archaeology professor, the student asked Jones about Hargrove's normative model of culture. Jones replied to skip Hargrove and read Vere Gordon Childe instead. Hopping back onto the motorcycle, Jones gave the student a final piece of advice: if he wanted to be a good archaeologist, he needed to get out of the library.
Behind the scenes
The Student in Library was played by Chet Hanks in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Chet is one of the sons of Tom Hanks, one of the most frequent collaborators of Indy director Steven Spielberg, who had cast him in many of his films.
As an interest fact, during the early development of the then untitled fourth Indiana Jones film, it was rumored that Chet's brother, Colin Hanks, was Spielberg's choice to portray Indy's son in the film, but the rumor ended up false, as Shia LaBeouf who played Indiana's son in the final film.
