Quote "I'm going home to Missouri, where they never ever feed you snake before ripping your heart out and lowering you into hot pits. This is not my idea of a swell time!"

Wilhelmina "Willie" Scott (Kate Capshaw) is an American singer from Missouri at Club Obi-Wan in Shanghai, China who is caught up in Indiana Jones' adventures and becomes his love interest in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, serving as the deuteragonist of the film. Unlike Indiana's previous love interest Marion Ravenwood, she is more of a damsel in distress. The novelization of the film details that Willie was born in Missouri, and moved to Shanghai as she was unable to enter Hollywood fame during the Great Depression. She also claims to know famous gangsters Al Capone (who Indy met in 1920) and Frank Nitti. She returns to the United States following her adventure.


  • Willie Scott was named after director Steven Spielberg's dog, also named Willie.
  • Her first name "Wilhelmina" is a reference to the Wilhelm scream stock sound effect.
