Vaughn: Any special questions?
Denherder: Uh, is that $3000 bounty on the shark in cash or check?
[the townspeople laugh]
Mrs. Taft: I don't think that's funny. I don't think that's funny at all, I'm sorry.


Vaughn: We're really a little anxious that you're, ah, you're rushing into something serious here. It's your first summer, you know.
Brody: What does that mean?
Vaughn: I'm only trying to say that Amity is a summer town. We need summer dollars. If people can't swim here, they'll be glad to swim in the beaches of Cape Cod, the Hamptons, Long Island.
Brody: That doesn't mean we have to serve them up a smorgasbord.
Mayor's Assistant: We've never had that kind of trouble in these waters.

Ellen: Oh, you scared me.
Brody: People don't even know how old sharks are, I mean, if they live two - three thousand years...They don't know.

[as he spots Hooper sitting on the deck playing solitaire] Stop playin' with yourself, Hooper.

[Examining the body of the first victim] The torso has been severed in mid-thorax. There are no major organs remaining...The right arm has been severed above the elbow with massive tissue loss in the upper musculature...Partially denuded bone remaining. This was no boat accident. [To Brody] Did you notify the Coast Guard about this?...The left arm, head to shoulders, sternum and portions of the rib cage are intact...[He holds up the bluish, severed left arm/hand, with rings still on fingers, of the shark attack victim.] This is what happens. It indicates the non-frenzied feeding of a large squalis... Now, the enormous amount of tissue loss prevents any detailed analysis. However, the attacking squalis must be considerably larger than any normal squalis found in these waters....Well, this is not a boat accident, and it wasn't any propeller, it wasn't any coral reef, and it wasn't Jack the Ripper. It was a shark.

[On radio during an attack by the shark] Your husband's fine, Mrs. Brody. He's fishing. He's just caught a couple of stripers. We'll bring 'em in for dinner. We won't be long, we haven't seen anything yet. Over and out.

[points to a scar on chest] Mary Ellen Moffat. She broke my heart.

[Poking fun at Brody] Ah, the missus, Chief. If they don't like you going out, they'll love you comin' in.

[singing] Show me the way to go home... I'm tired and I want to go to bed... I had a little drink about an hour ago, and it went right to my head.

[to Brody] You know those eight guys in the fantail launch out there? Well, none of 'em are gonna get out of the harbor alive.

[to his son] Come here. Give us a kiss...'Cause I need it.

[While being interviewed on TV] I'm pleased and happy to repeat the news that we have in fact caught and killed a large predator that supposedly injured some bathers. But as you can see, it's a beautiful day, the beaches are opened, and people are having a wonderful time. Amity, as you know, means friendship.

All right fellas, let's cut this ugly son-of-a-bitch down before it stinks up the whole island. Harv, you and Carl take it out tomorrow and dump it in the drink.

Back home we got taxidermy man...he gonna have a heart attack when he see what I brung him - ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaa!.

Break it up, will ya, Chief. Daylight's wasting...Come on, Chief. This isn't no Boy Scout picnic. See you got your rubbers! Ha, ha, ha.
