Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) specifically tells Short Round (Jonathan Ke Quan) not to touch anything and follow his every foot step. Whilst ignoring this advice, Short Round then triggers a false door to collapse and almost gets into trouble. After learning a valuable lesson, he agrees to touch nothing, and only step where Indy steps. Trivia: An open casting call was put out to all the elementary schools to find a young Asian actor to play Short Round. Jonathan Ke Quan arrived with his brother, not to audition, but merely to provide moral support. He caught the casting director's attention because he spent the entire time of his brother's audition telling him what to do and what not to do.
