Old Rose

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!

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]

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: I don't see what all the fuss is about. It doesn't look any bigger than the Mauretania.
Caledon Hockley: You can be blas? 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.

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.

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.

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: 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.

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!

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: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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]
