Indiana Jones! This is one night you'll never forget! This is the night I slipped right through your fingers! Sleep tight, and pleasant dreams! I could've been your greatest adventure.
~ Willie Scott.

Wilhelmina "Willie" Scott is the deuteragonist from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

She is an American singer working at Club Obi-Wan in Shanghai who is caught up in Indiana's adventures and becomes his love interest in the film.

She was portrayed by Kate Capshaw.

Unlike Marion Ravenwood, Willie is more of a damsel in distress and easily loses patience with Indy. The novelization details Willie was born in Missouri, and moved to Shanghai as she was unable to break into Hollywood during the Great Depression. She also claims to know Al Capone (who Indy met in 1920) and Frank Nitti. She returns to the United States following her adventure.

Personality and Traits

Willie is a type of person who speaks with her mind where this trait remarked by Indiana being both a pro and a con according to his journal. She displayed fondness for diamonds which further reinforced her great comfort with luxuries to the point of barely, if not downright unable to stand living without them in addition of a fear of insect and great dislike of wild animals. In fact, her time in India showed how much she found herself outside her element and comfort zone, shrieking or fainting every time something frightened her, at times to the dismay of her companions who fared better.

Despite being the least capable companion Indiana Jones ever had as much as annoyance, Willie is not a complete "dead weight" she seemed to be. Although her adventure with the adventurer and Short Round changed her only a little, she did helped the latter freeing children enslaved by the Thuggee cult thus contributed in restoring Mayapore village they stumbled upon earlier. She even fights her fear of extreme height to save Shorty from falling at the rope bridge that connected two cliffs separated by a river full of alligators far below. Willie even has a feisty side to her personality where she makes sarcastic remarks to Indiana and on any dangerous situation she runs into. However, over the course of her adventure with Indiana Jones, Willie manages to overcome some of her fears and loses her snobby personality where she saved Short Round from falling off a rope bridge and laughs when an elephant squirts water at her and Indiana before they are about to share a kiss.

During the adventure, Willie even gained a strong-willed side to her personality where she fought members of the Thuggee and punched one member hard in the face; something that impressed Indiana. All in all, Willie does have a good, caring heart and a sense of selflessness.

Trivia

  • The Nostalgia Critic put Willie and Short Round in Number 9 in Top 11 Dumbasses In Distress but in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Review he put Willie and Short Round in Number 5.
  • Not surprisingly, Willie is arguably the least likeable companion of Indiana Jones throughout the franchise due to her constant complaining throughout her adventures with Indiana and Short Round. In addition of being the foil to the more competent Short Round, she contrasted to Indiana's similarly annoying yet more likeable allies Henry Jones Sr. (who rather aloof and distant yet caring towards his family in addition of exasperated by Indiana's lifestyle as archaeologist and adventurer that more violent than expected) and Marcus Brody (the clueless and incompetent at times but still kind hearted and well-meaning) that fared better whenever they thrusted into difficult situations.
    • Even Kate Capshaw couldn't help but very critical of her own character, saying that Willie was "not much more than a dumb screaming blonde".
