Old Rose

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 ****ing 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.

[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.

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.

[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.

Wallace Hartley: [his last words] Gentlemen, it has been a privilege playing with you tonight.

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.

[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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

[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.

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?

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]
