Jack Dawson
Old Rose

View Quote Ruth: Tell us about the accommodations in steerage, Mr. Dawson. I hear they are quite good on this ship.
Jack: The best I've seen, ma'am. Hardly any rats.
View Quote [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: Dawson. Rose Dawson.
Steward: Thank you.
[The scene returns to the present day.]
Old Rose: Can you exchange one life for another? A caterpillar 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?
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. [to Lizzy] 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.
View Quote [Rose is on top of a door in the water and Jack is hanging off the side, shivering]
Rose: It's getting quiet.
Jack: It's gonna take a couple of minutes to get the boats organized. I don't know about you, but I intend to go write a strongly worded letter to the White Star Line about all this.
Rose: I love you, Jack.
Jack: Don't you do that. Don't you say your good-byes. Not yet, do you understand me?
Rose: I'm so cold.
Jack: Listen, Rose. You're gonna get out of here, you're gonna go on, and you're gonna make lots of babies, and you're gonna watch them grow. You're gonna die an old... an old woman warm in her bed, not here, not this night. Not like this, do you understand me?
Rose: I can't feel my body.
Jack: Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me... it brought me to you. And I'm thankful for that, Rose. I'm thankful. You must do me this honor. You must promise me that you'll survive, that you won't give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise.
Rose: I promise.
Jack: Never let go.
Rose: I'll never let go, Jack. I'll never let go.
View Quote [while the ship is sinking, Jack and Rose break out of a room, damaging the door]
Steward: What do you think you're doing?! You'll have to pay for that, you know. That's White Star Line property!
Jack and Rose: SHUT UP!!

View Quote [About Cal] That's the last time I ever saw him. He married, of course, and inherited his millions, but The Crash of '29 hit his interests hard, and he put a pistol in his mouth that year...or so I read.
View Quote [looks at back of salvaged mirror] This was mine. How extraordinary! And it looks the same as it did the last time I saw it. [turns mirror over] The reflection has changed a bit.
View Quote I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what's gonna happen or, who I'm gonna meet, where I'm gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You don't know what hand you're gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you... to make each day count.
View Quote I saw my whole life as if I already lived it. An endless parade of parties and cotillions, yachts and polo matches. Always the same narrow people, the same mindless chatter. I felt like I was standing at a great precipice, with no one to pull me back, no one who cared or even noticed.
View Quote 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.
