Titanic
Movie Quote Quiz

Cal Hockley: You're going to him? To be a whore to a gutter rat?!
Rose: I'd rather be his whore than your wife.

Lewis Bodine: We never found anything on Jack. There's no record of him at all.
Rose Calvert: 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.

Jack: That's one of the good things about Paris: lots of girls willing to take their clothes off.

Tommy Ryan: Music to drown by. Now I know I'm in first class.

Rose: The last thing I need is another picture of me looking like a porcelain doll.

Jack: I'm the king of the world!

Caledon Hockley: Dawson? This is amazing! You could almost pass for a gentleman.
Jack Dawson: Almost.

Rose: You have a gift, Jack. You do. You see people.
Jack: I see YOU.
Rose: And...?
Jack: You wouldn't have jumped.

Jack: Where to, Miss?
Rose: To the stars.

Rose: I love you Jack.
Jack: Don't you do that, don't say any good-byes.
Rose: I'm so cold.
Jack: I don't know about you, but I intend on writing a strongly worded letter to the White Star Line about all of this. You're gonna go on, and make lots of babies, and watch them grow. You're gonna die an old lady, warm in your bed. Not here, not this night. Do you understand me? 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, Rose. Promise me 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. I'll never let go, Jack.

Rose: Mr. Andrews. I saw the iceberg, and I see it in your eyes. Now tell me the truth.
Mr. Andrews: The ship will sink.
Rose: You're certain?
Mr. Andrews: Yes, in an hour, or so, all of this will be at the bottom of the Atlantic.

Bruce Ismay: But this ship can't sink!
Thomas Andrews: She's made of iron, I assure you, she can. And she will. It is a mathematical certainty.

Ruth: So this is the ship they say is unsinkable.
Cal Hockley: It is unsinkable. God himself could not sink this ship.

Thomas Andrews: Mr. Lightoller! Why are the boats being launched half full? There, look! 20 or so, in a boat built for 65? And I saw one boat with only twelve. Twelve!
Officer Lightoller: Well, we weren't sure of the weight, Mr. Andrews, these boats may buckle.
Thomas Andrews: Rubbish! These boats were tested in Belfast with the weight of 70 men! Now fill these boats, for God's sake man!

Man: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death...
Jack: You wanna walk a little faster to get over that valley, pal?

Brock Lovett: Look, Rose, I don't know what to say to a woman who tries to jump off the Titanic when it's not sinking and jumps back on when it is.

Rose: Half the people on this ship are going to die.
Cal Hockley: Not the better half.

Thomas Andrews: From this moment on, no matter what to do, Titanic will founder.

Rose: It's so unfair.
Ruth: Of course it's unfair. We're women. Our choices are never easy.

Factual error: Rose mentions Austrian psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud's ideas on the male preoccupation with size to Bruce. However this is 1912, and Freud did not publish the work relating to this until 1920 in "Beyond The Pleasure Principle." Also, up until 1919, Freud relied solely on data from women. (00:33:40)

Question: Why were the women and children ordered to the lifeboats first and then the men? Why not just let anybody who could make it to the lifeboats get on?

Answer: Though not a requirement of maritime law, it was a matter of historical codes of chivalry that, in life threatening situations where limited numbers of life-saving resources were available, the lives of women and children were to be saved first. That was captain Smith's order the night the RMS Titanic sank. Some of the crew interpreted this to mean "women and children only." Thus, several of the lifeboats were launched only partially full, as men were prevented from occupying empty seats even when all nearby women and children had been boarded. The rescue efforts on the Titanic were further hampered by the fact that, initially, many of the passengers thought that the launching of lifeboats was unnecessary precaution, as the Titanic was thought unsinkable. The night air was cold. The lifeboats seemed uncomfortable. Thus, many preferred to stay on board the ship until reality of the magnitude of the situation became more evident and panic began to set in. Many of the men who survived in lifeboats, like White Star Line chairman Bruce Ismay, were branded cowards upon return to shore, even though many of them occupied seats that would have otherwise gone unused.

Answer: Furthermore, the "Code of Conduct" would put many boats in the water without anybody being able to row them.
