Jack Dawson

  • I'm the king of the world!
  • I'm gonna have to get you to write that one down.
  • [attempting to open the gate] Goddamn it! Son of a bitch!
  • Compliments of the Chippewa Falls Dawsons!
  • Swim, Rose! I need you to swim!
  • The boats are come back for us, Rose. Hold on just a little longer. They had to row away for the suction but now they'll be coming back.
  • It's gonna take a couple of minutes to get the boats organized. I don't know about you, but I intend to go write a strongly worded letter to the White Star Line about all this.
  • [last words] Never let go.

Old Rose

  • [looks at a salvaged mirror] This was mine. How extraordinary! And it looks the same as it did the last time I saw it. The reflection has changed a bit.
  • [about the Titanic] It was the ship of dreams to everyone else. To me, it was a slave ship taking me back to America in chains. Outwardly, I was everything a well brought up girl should be. Inside, I was screaming.
  • I saw my whole life as if I already lived it. An endless parade of parties and cotillions, yachts and polo matches. Always the same narrow people, the same mindless chatter. I felt like I was standing at a great precipice, with no one to pull me back, no one who cared or even noticed.
  • Fifteen hundred people went into the sea when Titanic sank from under us. There were twenty boats floating nearby and only one came back. One. Six were saved from the water, myself included. Six... out of fifteen hundred. Afterward, the seven hundred people in the boats had nothing to do but wait. Wait to die, wait to live, wait for an absolution that would never come.
  • [about Caledon] That's the last time I ever saw him. He married, of course, and inherited his millions. But the crash of '29 hit his interests hard, and he put a pistol in his mouth that year.Or so I read.

Others

  • Tommy Ryan: [addressing stewards] You can't keep us locked in here like animals. The ship's bloody sinking!
  • Tommy Ryan: Music to drown by, now I know I'm in first class.
  • Charles Herbert Lightoller: Get back I say, or I'll shoot you all like dogs! Keep order here! Keep order I say. Mr. Lowe, man this boat.
  • Benjamin Guggenheim: [being offered a lifebelt] No, thank you. We are dressed in our best, and are prepared to go down as gentlemen. But we would like a brandy.
  • Wallace Hartley: [his last words] Gentlemen, it has been a privilege playing with you tonight.

Dialogue

(Jack and Rose break a door while the ship is sinking)
Employee: Here! What do you think you're doing?! You'll have to pay for that, you know! That's White Star Line property!
Jack and Rose: SHUT UP!!!

Lewis Bodine: (shows Rose a 3-D reenactment video of the Titanic sinking) Okay. Here we go. She hits the 'berg on the starboard side, right? She kinds bumps along, punchin' holes like Morse code-- (imitates Morse code) along the side, below the water line. Then the forward compartments start to flood. Now, as the water level rises, it spills over the water-tight bulk heads, which unfortunately don't go any higher than E deck. So now, as the bow goes down, the stern rises up, slow at first, then faster and faster, until finally, she's stickin' up in the air. We're talkin' 20- 30,000 tons! Okay? Now, the hull's not designed to deal with that pressure, so, what happens? (imitates crack) She splits! Right down to the keel. And the stern falls back level. Then as the bow sinks, it pulls the stern vertical, and then finally detaches. Now, the stern section just kind of bobs there like a cork for a couple of minutes, floods, and finally goes under about 2:20am, 2 hours and 40 minutes after the collision. The bow section planes away, landing about a half a mile away, goin' 20, 30 knots when it hits the ocean floor. (imitates a crashing sound when the bow of the 3-D Titanic hits the ocean floor) Pretty cool, huh?
Old Rose: Thank you for that fine forensic analysis, Mr. Bodine. Of course, the experience of it was... somewhat different.

Bobby Buell: Brock! Brock! There's a satellite call for you.
Brock Lovett: Bobby, we're launching now. You see these submersibles going into the water? [motions to the subs]
Bobby Buell: Trust me, buddy, you wanna take this call.
Brock Lovett: This better be good.
Bobby Buell: And you gotta speak up, she's kinda old
Brock Lovett: Great. [on the phone] This is Brock Lovett. How can help you, Mrs... ? [turns to Bobby]
Bobby Buell: Calvert. Rose Calvert.
Brock Lovett: Mrs. Calvert?
Old Rose: I was just wondering if you had found the "Heart of the Ocean" yet, Mr. Lovett.
[Brock turns to Buell, completely shocked]
Bobby Buell: Told you you wanted to take this call.
Brock Lovett: Alright. You have my attention, Rose. Can you tell us who the woman in the picture is?
Old Rose: Oh yes. The woman in the picture is me.

Brock Lovett: Louis XVI wore a fabulous stone that was called the Blue Diamond of the Crown, which disappeared in 1792, about the same time old Louis lost everything from the neck up. The theory goes that the crown diamond was chopped too... recut into a heart-like shape that became known as the Heart of the Ocean. Today it would be worth more than the Hope Diamond.
Old Rose: It was a dreadful, heavy thing. I only wore it this once.
Lizzy Calvert: [looking at Rose's drawing] You actually believe this is you, nana?
Old Rose: It is me, dear. Wasn't I a dish?

Old Rose: It's been 84 years...
Brock Lovett: [calmly] It's okay. Just try to remember anything. Anything at all.
Old Rose: Do you want to hear this or not, Mr. Lovett? It's been 84 years, and I can still smell the fresh paint. The china had never been used. The sheets had never been slept in. Titanic was called the Ship of Dreams, and it was. It really was.

Rose DeWitt Bukater: I don't see what all the fuss is about. It doesn't look any bigger than the Mauretania.
Caledon Hockley: You can be blasé about some things, Rose, but not about Titanic. It's over a hundred feet longer than the Mauritania and far more luxurious. Your daughter is far too difficult to impress, Ruth.
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: So this is the ship they say is unsinkable.
Caledon Hockley: It is unsinkable. God himself could not sink this ship.

[Jack and Fabrizio are set to play poker against Swedish poker players Olaf and Sven]
Fabrizio: Jack, you are pazzo! You bet everything we have.
Jack: When you got nothin', you got nothin' to lose.
Olaf: (says to Sven in Swedish "You moron. I can't believe you bet our tickets!")

[Jack and Fabrizio play poker]
Jack: All right, the moment of truth. Somebody's life is about to change. Fabrizio?
(Fabrizio reveals his hand)
Jack: Niente.
Fabrizio: Niente.
Jack: Olaf?
(Olaf reveals his hand)
Jack: Nothin'. Sven?
(Sven reveals his hand)
Jack: Uh-oh. 2 pair. I'm sorry, Fabrizio.
Fabrizio: Che sorry? Va fanculo! You bet all our money! [keep talking in Italian]
Jack: I'm sorry! You're not gonna see your mom again for a long time. 'Cause we're goin' to America! FULL HOUSE, BOYS!! (whoops wildly)

[Jack and Fabrizio are very excited after beating Olaf and Sven in poker for their cruise tickets to America]
Fabrizio: I go to America! (laughs)
Bartender: No, mate. Titanic go to America, in 5 minutes!

Jack Dawson: Wait! We're passengers! We're passengers! [hands the tickets to Officer Moody]
James Moody: Have you been through the inspection queue?
Jack Dawson: [lying] Of course! Anyway, we don't have any lice, we're Americans. Both of us.
James Moody: [nods] Right. Come aboard.
[Jack and Fabrizio board the ship]
Jack Dawson: We're the luckiest sons of bitches in the world, you know that?

Jack Dawson: [waving to people] Good-bye!
Fabrizio De Rossi: You know somebody?
Jack Dawson: Of course not! That's the point! Good-bye, I'll miss you!
Fabrizio De Rossi: Good-bye!
Jack Dawson: Good-bye!
Fabrizio De Rossi: I will never forget you!

Captain Edward J. Smith: Take her to sea, Mr. Murdoch. Let's stretch her legs.
William McMaster Murdoch: Yes, sir! Ahead full, Mr. Moody.
James Moody: Very Good, sir.

Fabrizio De Rossi: I can see the Statue of Liberty already! Very small of course.
Jack Dawson: [famous line] I'm the king of the world!

Trudy Bolt: This one?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: No. It had a lot of faces on it... [pulls out painting] This is the one.
Caledon Hockley: God, not those finger paintings again. They certainly were a waste of money.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: The difference between Cal's taste in art and mine is that I have some. They're fascinating... like being inside a dream or something. There's truth but no logic.
Trudy Bolt: What's the artist's name?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Something Picasso...
Caledon Hockley: "Something Picasso". He won't amount to a thing. He won't, trust me. [Trudy accompanies Rose into another room with Rose holding a painting] At least they were cheap. [plunges bottle into cooling bucket]
Spicer Lovejoy: [to porter] Ah, put it in the wardrobe.
[Rose and Trudy enter bedroom with the painting, Rose places painting on a dresser]
Trudy Bolt: [about bedsheets] They smell so brand new. Like they built it all just for us. [undoes Rose's cuff] I mean, just think that tonight, when I crawl between the sheets, I'll be the first!
Caledon Hockley: [enters] And tonight, when I crawl between the sheets, I'll still be the first. [nods Trudy out]
Trudy Bolt: [caught in surprise by the innuendo] S'cuse me, Miss. [exits, leaving Cal and Rose in the room]
Caledon Hockley: [closes the door, approaches Rose whose back is turned on him] The first and only... forever. [embraces Rose, nuzzling against her] [Rose kisses Cal on his cheek impatiently]

Molly Brown: Hey, uh, who thought of the name Titanic? Was it you, Bruce?
J. Bruce Ismay: Yes, actually. I want to convey sheer size, and size means stability, luxury, and above all, strength.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Do you know of Dr. Freud, Mr Ismay? His ideas about the male preoccupation with size might be of particular interest to you.
[Molly Brown and Thomas Andrews chuckle in amusement]
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: [whispering] What's gotten into you?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Excuse me. [rises and leaves]
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: I do apologize.
Molly Brown: She's a pistol, Cal. Hope you can handle her.
Caledon Hockley: Well, I may have to start minding what she reads from now on, won't I, Mrs. Brown?
J. Bruce Ismay: Freud? Who is he? Is he a passenger?

Tommy Ryan: Well, that's typical. First class dogs come down here to take a shite.
Jack Dawson: That let's us know where we rank in the scheme of things.
Tommy Ryan: Like we couldn't forget. I'm Tommy Ryan.
Jack Dawson: Jack Dawson.
Fabrizio De Rossi: Fabrizio.
Tommy Ryan: Do you make any money with your drawings.
[Jack sees Rose for the first time]
Tommy Ryan: Ah forget it, boyo. You're as like to have angels fly out of you're arse as get next to the likes of her.

[Rose is attempting to commit suicide]
Jack Dawson: Don't do it!
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Stay back! Don't come any closer!
Jack Dawson: Come on, just give me your hand. I'll pull you back over.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: No, stay where you are! I mean it! I'll let go!
Jack Dawson: [throws his cigarette into the ocean] No, you won't.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: What do you mean, "No I won't"? Don't presume to tell me what I will and will not do, you don't know me!
Jack Dawson: Well, you would've done it already.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: You're distracting me! Go away!
Jack Dawson: I can't. I'm involved now. If you let go, I'm gonna have to jump in there after you.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Don't be absurd. You'd be killed!
Jack Dawson: I'm a good swimmer.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: The fall alone would kill you.
Jack Dawson: It would hurt. I'm not saying it wouldn't. To tell you the truth I'm a lot more concerned about that water being so cold. [slowly removing his boots]
Rose DeWitt Bukater: [look down at the water] How cold?
Jack Dawson: Freezing. Maybe a couple degrees over. You ever been to Wisconsin?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: What?
Jack Dawson: Well, they have some of the coldest winters around. I grew up there, near Chippewa Falls. I remember when I was a kid, me and my father, we went ice fishing on Lake Wissota. Ice fishing is you know where you...
Rose DeWitt Bukater: [angrily] I know what ice fishing is!
Jack Dawson: Sorry. You just seemed like, you know, kind of an indoor girl. Anyway, I fell through some thin ice and I'm telling ya, water that cold, like right down there, it hits you like a thousand knives stabbing you all over your body. You can't breathe. You can't think. At least not about anything but the pain. Which is why I'm not looking' forward to jumping in there after you. But like I said, I don't have a choice. I guess I'm hoping you'll come back over the railing and get me off the hook here.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: You're crazy!
Jack Dawson: That's what everybody says. But with all due respect, miss, I'm not the one hanging off the back of a ship here. Come on, give me your hand. You don't want to do this. [Rose turns around and takes Jack's hand] Whew! I'm Jack Dawson.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Rose DeWitt Bukater.
Jack Dawson: I'm gonna have to get you to write that one down. Come on.

Colonel Archibald Gracie: [after Jack saves Rose] Well, the boy's a hero then! Good for you, son. Well done. So it's all's well and back to our brandy, eh?

Spicer Lovejoy: You'll want to tie those. [points at Jack's boots] It's interesting. The young lady slipped so suddenly and you still have time to remove your jacket and your shoes.

Rose DeWitt Bukater: Mr. Dawson, I--
Jack Dawson: Just call me Jack.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Jack, I want to thank you for what you did. Not just for pulling me back, but your discretion.
Jack Dawson: You're welcome.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Look, I know what you must be thinking. "Poor little rich girl, what does she know about misery?"
Jack Dawson: NO! No, that's not what I was thinking. What I was thinking was, what could've happened to this girl to make her think she had no way out.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: It was everything. It was my whole world and all the people in it, and the intertia of my life. Plunging ahead and me powerless to stop it. [shows Jack her engagement ring]
Jack Dawson: God, look at that thing! You would've gone straight to the bottom.

Jack Dawson: [referring to Cal] Do you love him?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Pardon me?
Jack Dawson: Do you love him?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Well, you're being very rude. You shouldn't be asking me this.
Jack Dawson: Well, it's a simple question. Do you love the guy or not?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: This is not a suitable conversation.
Jack Dawson: Why can't you just answer the question?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: This is absurd. I don't know you and you don't know me and we are not having this conversation at all. You are rude and uncouth, and presumptuous, and I am leaving now. [starts shaking Jack's hand] Jack... Mister Dawson, it's been a pleasure. I've sought you out to thank you, and now I have thanked you.
Jack Dawson: And you've insulted me.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Well, you deserved it.
Jack Dawson: Right.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Right. [still shakes Jack's hand]
Jack Dawson: I thought you were leaving.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: [turns to leave] I am. You are so annoying.
Jack Dawson: Ha, ha.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: [turns back to Jack] Wait, I don't have to leave, this is my part of the ship. You leave.
Jack Dawson: Oh ho, ho, well well well, now who's being rude?

Rose DeWitt Bukater: You have a gift, Jack, you do. You see people.
Jack Dawson: I see you.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: And?
Jack Dawson: You wouldn't have jumped.

J. Bruce Ismay: So you've not yet lit the last four boilers?
Captain Edward J. Smith: No, I don't see the need. We are making excellent time.
J. Bruce Ismay: The press knows the size of Titanic, now I want them to marvel at her speed, too. We must give them something new to print. This maiden voyage of Titanic must make headlines!

Rose DeWitt Bukater: Teach me to ride like a man.
Jack Dawson: [Southern accent] And chew tobacco like a man.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: [Southern accent] And spit like a man!
Jack Dawson: What, they didn't teach you that while finishing school?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: [chuckling] No!

[Jack teaches Rose how to spit]
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Mother! May I introduce Jack Dawson?
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: Charmed, I'm sure.
Old Rose: [voice in off] The others were gracious and curious about the man who had saved my life. But my mother looked at him like an insect. A dangerous insect which must be squashed quickly.
Molly Brown: Well, Jack, it sounds like you're a good man to have around in a sticky spot-- [a bugler sounds the meal call] Why do they always insist on announcing dinner like a damn cavalry charge?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Shall we go dress, mother. See you at dinner, Jack.

Molly Brown: [helps Jack put on a tuxedo] I was right. You and my son are just about the same size.
Jack Dawson: Pretty close.
Molly Brown: You shine up like a new penny.

Ruth DeWitt Bukater: Tell us about the accommodations in steerage, Mr. Dawson. I hear they are quite good on this ship.
Jack Dawson: The best I've seen, ma'am. Hardly any rats. [everyone gently laughs]

Jack Dawson: [about his silverware dinner] Are these all for me?
Molly Brown: Just start from the outside and work your way in.

Colonel Archibald Gracie: All life is a game of luck.
Caledon Hockley: A real man makes his own luck, Archie. Right, Dawson? [Jack nods]
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: And you find that sort of rootless existence appealing, do you?
Jack Dawson: Well, yes, ma'am, I do... I mean, I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what's gonna happen or, who I'm gonna meet, where I'm gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You don't know what hand you're gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you... to make each day count.
Molly Brown: Well said, Jack.
Colonel Archibald Gracie: Hear, hear!
Rose DeWitt Bukater: [holds up her champagne] To make it count.
Everyone: [holds up their champaigns to Jack] To make it count! [Jack smiles, holds up his champagne and everyone drinks]

Jack Dawson: [dancing with Cora] I'm gonna dance with her now, all right? [looking at Rose] Come on.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: What?
Jack Dawson: Come on! Come with me.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Jack! Jack, wait! I can't do this.
Jack Dawson: We're gonna have to get a little bit closer. Like this. [looks at Cora] You're still my best girl, Cora.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I don't know this dance!
Jack Dawson: Neither do I! Just go with it! And don't think!

Caledon Hockley: I hope you would come to me last night.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I was tired.
Caledon Hockley: Your exertions below decks were no doubt exhausting.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I see you had that undertaker of a manservant follow me. How typical.
Caledon Hockley: You will never behave like that again, Rose. Do you understand?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I'm not a foreman in one of your mills that you can command. I'm you fiancee.
Caledon Hockley: My fian... My fiancee! (Upending the breakfast table out of the way in rage, breaking everything breakable) Yes, of course you are, and my wife. My wife in practice if not yet by law, so you will honor me. (Pushes his menacing face close to Rose) You will honor me the way a wife is required to honor a husband. Because I will not be made out a fool, Rose. Is this in any way unclear?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: No.
Caledon Hockley: Good. Excuse me.

Ruth DeWitt Bukater: Tea, Trudy!
Trudy Bolt: Yes, ma'am.
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: You're not to see that boy again Do you understand me? Rose, I forbid it.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Oh stop it, mother. You'll give yourself a nosebleed.
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: This is not a game! Out situation is precarious. You know the money's gone!
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Of course I know it's gone. You remind me every day!
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: Your father left us nothing but a legacy of bad debts hidden by a good name. That name is the only card we have to play. I don't understand you. It is a fine match with Hockley, it will ensure our survival.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: How can you put this on my shouders?
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: Why are you being so selfish?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I'm being selfish?
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: You want to see me working as a seamstress? Is that what you want? To see your fine things sold at auction, our memories scattered to the wind?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: It's so unfair.
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: Of course, it's unfair. We're women. Our choices are never easy.

Rose DeWitt Bukater: Mr. Andrews, forgive me, I did the sum in my head, and with the number of lifeboats times the capacity you mentioned, forgive me, but it seems that there are not enough for everyone aboard.
Thomas Andrews: About half, actually, you miss nothing Rose, do you? In fact, I put in these new type davits, which could take an extra row of boats inside this one. But it was thought, by some, that the deck would look too clutered. So I was overruled.
Caledon Hockley: A waste of deck space as it is, on an unsinkable ship.
Thomas Andrews: Sleep soundly, young Rose. I have built you a good ship, strong and true. She's all the lifeboats you need.

Rose DeWitt Bukater: Jack, this is impossible! I can't see you.
Jack Dawson: But I need to talk to you.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: No, Jack. No! Jack, I'm engaged! I'm marrying Cal. I love Cal.
Jack Dawson: Rose, you're no picnic, all right? You're a spoiled little brat even, but under that you're the most amazingly astounding girl - woman, that I've ever known and--
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Jack, I--
Jack Dawson: No wait. Let me try to get this out. You're amazing... I'm not an idiot. I know how the world works. I've got ten bucks in my pocket and I have nothing to offer you, and I know that. But I'm too involved now. You jump, I jump, remember? I can't turn away without knowin' that you'll be alright. That's all I want.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Well, I'm fine. I'll be fine. Really.
Jack Dawson: Really? I don't think so. They've got you trapped, Rose! And you're goin' to die if you don't break free, but maybe not right away, 'cause you're strong, but sooner or later that fire that I love about you, Rose... That fire's gonna burn out.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: It's not up to you to save me, Jack.
Jack Dawson: You're right. Only you can do that.

[Jack stands outside on the bow of the Titanic, down in the dumps, until Rose arrives]
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Hello, Jack. I changed my mind. They said you might be out here -
Jack Dawson: Shhh. Give me your hand. Now close your eyes. Go on, now step up. Now hold on to the railing. Keep your eyes closed. Don't peek.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I'm not.
Jack Dawson: Step up. Hold on, hold on. Keep your eyes closed. Do you trust me? [opens Rose's arms]
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I trust you.
Jack Dawson: All right. Open you eyes!
Rose DeWitt Bukater: [gasps] I'm flying, Jack!
Jack Dawson: [starts singing] Come, Josephine, my flying machine, going up she goes, up she goes.
[They kiss passionately]

Old Rose: That was the last time Titanic ever saw daylight.
Brock Lovett: So we're up to dusk on the night of the sinking. Six hours to go.
Lewis Bodine: Incredible. There's Smith and he's standing there and he's got the iceberg warning in his fucking hand, excuse me, his hand, and he ordering more speed.
Brock Lovett: Twenty-six years of experience working against him. He figures anything big enough to sink the ship, they're gonna see in time to turn. The ship's too big with too small a rudder. It doesn't corner worth a damn. Everything he knows is wrong.

Rose DeWitt Bukater: Cal insists on carting this hideous thing everywhere.
Jack Dawson: Can we be expecting him anytime soon?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Not as long as the cigars and brandy hold out. [shows Jack the diamond]
Jack Dawson: That's nice. What is it, a sapphire?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: A diamond, a very rare diamond. Jack, I want you to draw me like one of your French girls. Wearing this...
Jack Dawson: All right.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Wearing only this.

Rose DeWitt Bukater: The last thing I need is another picture of me looking like a porcelain doll. [throws Jack a dime] As a paying customer, I expect to get what I want. [stands nude in front of Jack]
Jack Dawson: All right! Over on the bed - the couch. [Rose does so] Come, lie down.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Just tell me when it's right.
Jack Dawson: Put your arm back the way it was. [Rose does so] Now put the arm right over there. That hand, by your face there. [Rose does so] All right. Now, head down. [Rose lowers her head down] Eyes close on me. You try to stay still. [starts sketching]

Rose DeWitt Bukater: [as Jack sketches her in the nude] I believe you are blushing, Mr. Big Artiste. I can't imagine Monsieur Monet blushing.
Jack Dawson: He does landscapes. Just relax your face.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: That's right.
Jack Dawson: And no laughing!

Old Rose: [about Jack drawing her naked] My heart was pounding the whole time. It was the most erotic moment of my life. Up until then, at least.
Lewis Bodine: So what happened next.
Old Rose: You mean did we "do it"? Sorry to disappoint you, Mr. Bodine, Jack was very professional.

Jack Dawson: Where to, miss.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: To the stars. [they are inside the car]
Jack Dawson: Are you nervous?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: No. Put your hands on me, Jack.

Reginald Lee: God it's bloody cold.
Frederick Fleet: You can smell ice, you know, when it's near.
Reginald Lee: Bollocks.
Frederick Fleet: Well I can all right.

Rose DeWitt Bukater: When the ship docks, I'm getting off with you.
Jack Dawson: This is crazy.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I know. It doesn't make any sense. That's why I trust it.

Frederick Fleet: [calls for the bridge after seeing the iceberg] PICK UP, YOU BASTARDS!! [Sixth Officer Moody takes the call] Is there anyone there?
James Moody: Yes. What do you see?
Frederick Fleet: ICEBERG, RIGHT AHEAD!
James Moody: Thank you. [to First Officer Murdoch] ICEBERG, RIGHT AHEAD!!
William McMaster Murdoch: [to Quartermaster Hitchens, who is on the helm] HARD-A-STARBOARD!!

Frederick Fleet: That was a close shave, wasn't it?
Reginald Lee: Smell ice, can you? Bleedin' Christ!

[After the collision]
John Hutchinson: Boiler room six is flooded eight feet above the plain and the mail hold is worse. She's already buckled in the foreaft.
Captain Edward J. Smith: Can you shore up?
John Hutchinson: Not unless the pumps are ahead.
Thomas Andrews: Did you see the damage in the mail hold.
John Hutchinson: No, she's already underwater.
Jack Dawson: This is bad.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: We should tell mother and Cal.

Thomas Andrews: The pumps will buy you time, but minutes only. From this moment, no matter what we do, Titanic will founder.
J. Bruce Ismay: But this ship can't sink!
Thomas Andrews: She is made of iron, sir. I assure you, she can. And she will. It is a mathematical certainty.
Captain Edward J. Smith: How much time?
Thomas Andrews: An hour, two at most.
Captain Edward J. Smith: And how many aboard, Mr. Murdoch?
William Murdoch: 2,200 souls on board, sir.
Captain Edward J. Smith: Well, I believe you may get your headlines, Mr. Ismay.

Rose DeWitt Bukater: Mr. Andrews! I saw the iceberg and I see it in your eyes. Please, tell me the truth!
Thomas Andrews: The ship will sink.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: You're certain?
Thomas Andrews: Yes, in an hour or so, all this will be at the bottom of the Atlantic.
Caledon Hockley: [shocked] What?
Thomas Andrews: Please tell only who you must. I don't want to be responsible for a panic. And get to a boat quicky, don't wait. You remember what I told you about the boats?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: [shocked] Yes... I understand.

Harold Bride: Sir! Carpathia says they're making 17 knots, full steam for them, sir.
Captain Edward J. Smith: And she's the only one who's responding?
Harold Bride: The only one close, sir. She says they can be here in four hours.
Captain Edward J. Smith: Four hours! [pauses] Thank you, Bride. [whispers] My God.

Spicer Lovejoy: [to Jack, who is handcuffed to a pipe] You know, I do believe this ship may sink. [gets up] I've been asked to give you this small token of our appreciation. [points his gun at Jack's head, but punches him in the stomach] Compliments of Mr. Caledon Hockley.

Molly Brown: Come on, sister, you heard the man, into the boat.
Caledon Hockley: Any room for a gentleman, gentlemen?
Henry T. Wilde: Only women at this time, sir.
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: Will the lifeboats be seated according to class. I hope they're not too crowded.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Oh, mother, shut up! Don't you understand? The water's freezing and there aren't enough boats. Not enough by half. Half the people on this ship are going to die.
Caledon Hockley: Not the better half.
Molly Brown: Come on, Ruth, get in the boat. First-class seats are right up here.
Caledon Hockley: You know, it's a pity I didn't keep that drawing, It'll be worth a lot more by morning.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: You unimaginable bastard!
Molly Brown: Come on, Rose, darlin', there's plenty of room for you. Come on, Rose. You're next, darlin'.
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: Come into the boat, Rose. Rose, get into the boat!
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Good bye, mother.
Ruth DeWitt Bukater: Rose, come back here, right now!
Caledon Hockley: Where are you going? To him? To be a whore to a gutter rat?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I'd rather be his whore than your wife.

Caledon Hockley: You're a good liar.
Jack Dawson: Almost as good as you. There's no, uh, there's no arrangement, is there?
Caledon Hockley: No, there is. Not that you'll benefit much from it. I always win, Jack, one way or another.

[Rose jumps from the saving boat and goes to where Jack is]
Jack Dawson: Rose! You're so stupid. Why did you do that, huh? You're so stupid, Rose. Why did you do that? Why?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: You jump, I jump, right?
Jack Dawson: Right.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Oh God! I couldn't go. I couldn't go, Jack.
Jack Dawson: It's all right. We'll think of something.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: At least I'm with you.
Jack Dawson: We'll think of something.

Spicer Lovejoy: What could possibly be funny?
Caledon Hockley: [chuckling] I put the diamond in the coat. [pauses] and I put the coat on her! [hands Lovejoy the gun] I give it to you... I give it to you. If you can get them! [runs off]
Spicer Lovejoy: [under his breath] Bastard.

Spicer Lovejoy: [while fighting Jack] You little shit! [he tries to punch Jack, but misses. Jack punches him, bangs his head against a pillar and pushes him into another pillar].
Jack Dawson: Compliments of the Chippewa Falls Dawsons! [punches Lovejoy in the stomach]

Rose DeWitt Bukater: Won't you even make a try for it?
Thomas Andrews: I'm sorry that I didn't build you a stronger ship, young Rose.

[Jack and Rose are climbing up the ship]
Male passenger: Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death...
Jack Dawson: You want to walk a little faster through that valley there?

[Rose is on top of a door in the water and Jack is hanging off the side, shivering in the water]
Rose DeWitt Bukater: It's getting quiet.
Jack Dawson: It's gonna take a couple of minutes to get the boats organized. I don't know about you, but I intend to go write a strongly worded letter to the White Star Line about all this.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I love you, Jack.
Jack Dawson: Don't you do that, don't you say your good-byes. Not yet, do you understand me?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I'm so cold.
Jack Dawson: Listen, Rose. You're gonna get out of here, you're gonna go on, and you're gonna make lots of babies, and you're gonna watch them grow. You're gonna die an old... an old lady warm in her bed, not here, not this night. Not like this, do you understand me?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I can't feel my body.
Jack Dawson: Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me... it brought me to you. And I'm thankful for that, Rose. I'm thankful. You must do me this honor. You must promise me that you'll survive. That you won't give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I promise.
Jack Dawson: Never let go.
Rose DeWitt Bukater: I'll never let go, Jack. I'll never let go.

Rose DeWitt Bukater: [starts to shake Jack, who is frozen in the water] Jack. Jack! Jack, there's a boat! [starts getting impatient] Jack, wake up! [realizes he is dead, and starts to cry]

[As the Carpathia arrives in New York, Rose stands in the rain, staring at the Statue of Liberty]
Carpathia Steward: Can I take your name, please love?
Rose DeWitt Bukater: Dawson. Rose Dawson.
Carpathia Steward: Thank you.
Old Rose: [back to the present] Can you exchange one life for another? A caterpiller turns into a butterfly. If a mindless insect can do it, why couldn't I? Was it any more unimaginable than the sinking of the Titanic?
Lewis Bodine: We never found anything on Jack. There's no record of him at all.
Old Rose: No, there wouldn't be would there? And I've never spoken of him until now. Not to anyone. Not even your grandfather. A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson, and that he saved me, in every way that a person can be saved. I don't even have a picture of him. He exists now only in my memory.
