Front - bow, back - stern. Don`t get it get it right squirt 'n' I'll throw your ass out the little round window on the side. Come on Chief, this ain't no Boy Scout picnic... I see you got your rubbers !


I entered an arm wrestling tournament.... now, you see this arm, Mr. Hooper? I can't extend it anymore, because I made it to the semifinals and this big Chinaman took me riiiiiiiiiiight over....."

Hooper: [as Brody sends the air tanks flying] Dammit, Martin! This is compressed air!
Brody: Well, what the hell kind of a knot was that?
Hooper: You pulled the wrong one. You screw around with these tanks, and they're gonna blow up!
Quint: Yeah, that's real fine expensive gear you brought out here, Mr. Hooper. 'Course I don't know what that bastard shark's gonna do with it, might eat it I suppose. Seen one eat a rockin' chair one time. Hey chieffy, next time you just ask me which line to pull, right?

Look fellas, let's be reasonable, huh? This is not the time or the place to perform some kind of a half-assed autopsy on a fish. And I am not going to stand here and see that thing cut open and see that little Kintner boy spill out all over the dock.

Quint: I'll drink to your leg.
Hooper: I'll drink to your leg.
Quint: Okay, so we drink to our legs! [laughs]

Here lies the body of Mary Lee. Died at the age of a hundred and three. For fifteen years, she kept her virginity. Not a bad record for this vicinity.

Hooper: Sure. Gentlemen, gentlemen?! The officer asked me to tell you that you're overloading that boat.
Fishermen: Ah, get outta here! You ain't going there, what do you care? Hold on there.
Hooper: Well then, can you tell me if there's a good restaurant or hotel on the island?
Fisherman: Yeah ya walk straight ahead! Ha ha!
Hooper: Ha ha they're all gonna die.

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

I'm tellin' ya, the crime rate in New York will kill ya. There's so many problems, you never feel like you're accomplishing anything. Violence, rip-offs, muggings. The kids can't leave the house. You gotta walk 'em to school. But in Amity, one man can make a difference. In twenty-five years, there's never been a shooting or a murder in this town.

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.

[Brody is reading about sharks, when his wife startles him]
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.
Ellen: Why don't you put that away? Wanna get drunk and fool around?
Brody: Oh yeah.

What I am saying is that it may not be the shark. It's just a slight - it's a difference in semantics that I don't want to get beaten up for.

Here's to swimming with bow-legged women.

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.

You got city hands, Hooper... 'been countin' money all your life.
