Jack Dawson
Old Rose

View Quote God Himself could not sink this ship. You must promise me that you'll survive, that you won't give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. 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. 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: [looking at Rose's drawing] You actually believe this is you, Nana?
Old Rose: It is me, dear. Wasn't I a dish?
Lovett: I tracked it down through insurance records. An old claim that was settled under terms of absolute secrecy. Can you tell me who the claimant was, Rose?
Old Rose: I should imagine someone named Hockley.
Lovett: Nathan Hockley, that's right. Pittsburgh steel tycoon. The claim was for a diamond necklace his son, Caledon, bought his fiancée. You. A week before he sailed on Titanic. It was filed right after the sinking, so the diamond had to have gone down with the ship. See the date?
Lizzy: "April 14, 1912".
Bodine: Which means, if your grandmother is who she says she is, she was wearing the diamond the day the Titanic sank.
Lovett: [to old Rose] And that makes you my new best friend.
View Quote 1,500 people went into the sea when Titanic sank from under us. There were 20 boats floating nearby and only one came back. One. 6 were saved from the water, myself included. 6... out of 1,500. Afterward, the 700 people in the boats had nothing to do but wait. Wait to die, wait to live, wait for an absolution that would never come.
View Quote Andrews: I'm sorry I couldn't build you a better ship, young Rose.
View Quote Benjamin Guggenheim: [after 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.
View Quote Hartley: Gentlemen, it has been a privilege playing with you tonight.
View Quote I'm the king of the world!
View Quote Bruce: So you've not yet lit the last four boilers?
Captain Smith: No, I don't see the need. We are making excellent time.
Bruce: 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!
View Quote Hockley: [to Rose] Where are you going?! Back to him?! To be a whore married to a gutter rat?!
Rose: I'd rather be his whore than your wife.
View Quote Jack: Is it a sapphire?
Rose: A diamond. A very rare diamond. Jack, I want you to draw me like one of your French girls. Wearing this.
Jack: All right.
Rose: Wearing only this.
View Quote Jack: Rose...'re no picnic. All right? You're a spoiled little brat even. But under that, you're the most amazingly, astounding wonderful girl -- woman, that I've ever known.
Rose: Jack, I--
Jack: No, let me try and get this out. You're ama... I'm not an idiot. I know how the world works. I've got ten bucks in my pocket. I have nothing to offer you and I know that. I understand. But I'm too involved now. You jump, I jump, remember? I can't turn away without knowing you'll be all right. That's all that I want.
Rose: Well, I'm fine. I'll be fine. Really.
Jack: Really? I don't think so. They've got you trapped, Rose. And you're gonna die if you don't break free. Maybe not right away because you're strong, but sooner or later that fire that I love about you, Rose, that fire is gonna burn out.
Rose: It's not up to you to save me, Jack.
Jack: You're right. Only you can do that.
Rose: I'm going back. Leave me alone.
View Quote Molly: Hey, uh, who thought of the name "Titanic?" Was it you, Bruce?
Bruce: Yes, actually. I want to convey sheer size; and size means stability, luxury, and, above all, strength.
Rose: Do you know of Dr. Freud, Mr. Ismay? His ideas about the male preoccupation with size might be of particular interest to you.
[Molly and Thomas Andrews chuckle]
Ruth: [whispering] What's gotten into you?
Rose: Excuse me. [rises and leaves]
Ruth: I do apologize.
Molly: She's a pistol, Cal. Hope you can handle her.
Hockley: Well, I may have to start minding what she reads from now on. Won't I, Mrs. Brown?
Bruce: Freud? Who is he? Is he a passenger?
View Quote Old Rose: It's been 84 years...
Lovett: 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.
View Quote Rose: Hello, Jack. I changed my mind.
Jack: Give me your hand. Now close your eyes. [...] Now, step up onto the rail. [...] Do you trust me?
Rose: I trust you.
Jack: Open your eyes.
Rose: I'm flying, Jack.
View Quote Rose: I don't see what all the fuss is about. It doesn't look any bigger than the Mauretania.
Hockley: You can be blasé about some things, Rose, but not about Titanic. It's over a hundred feet longer than the Mauretania and far more luxurious. Your daughter is far too difficult to impress, Ruth.
Ruth: So this is the ship they say is unsinkable.
Hockley: It is unsinkable. God himself could not sink this ship!
View Quote Rose: Look, I know what you must be thinking, "Poor little rich girl, what does she know about misery?"
Jack: 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: It was everything. It was my whole world and all the people in it. And the inertia of my life: plunging ahead and me powerless to stop it. [shows Jack her engagement ring]
Jack: God, look at that thing! You would've gone straight to the bottom.
