A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.

I love you, Jack.
– Rose
Don’t you do that, don’t say your good-byes. Not yet, do you understand me?
– Jack
I’m so cold.
– Rose
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 lady warm in her bed, not here, not this night. Not like this, do you understand me?
– Jack
I can’t feel my body.
– Rose
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. 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.
– Jack
I promise.
– Rose
Never let go.
– Jack
I’ll never let go, Jack. I’ll never let go. I promise.
– Rose

I’ll never let go, Jack. I promise.
– Rose

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

Jack, I want you to draw me like one of your French girls. Wearing this…
– Rose
All right.
– Jack
Wearing *only* this.
– Rose

Well, yes, ma’am, I do… I mean, 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.
– Jack
Well said, Jack.
– Molly Brown

This was mine. How extraordinary! And it looks the same as it did last time I saw it. The reflection’s changed a bit…
– Old Rose

Can I take your name, please love?
– Carpathia Steward
Dawson, Rose Dawson.
– Rose

We never found anything on Jack… there’s no record of him at all.
– Lewis Bodine
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.
– Old Rose

Jack! This is where we first met.
– Rose

Goodbye!
– Jack
You know somebody?
– Fabrizio
Of course not! That’s not the point! Goodbye, I’ll miss you!
– Jack
Goodbye! I’m gonna never forget you!
– Fabrizio

God! Look at that thing! You would’ve gone straight to the bottom.
– Jack

I can see the Statue of Liberty already; very small, of course!
– Fabrizio

I believe you are blushing, Mr. Big Artiste. I can’t imagine Monsieur Monet blushing.
– Rose
He does landscapes.
– Jack

I saw that in a nickelodeon once and I always wanted to do it.
– Jack

Music to drown by. Now I know I’m in first class.
– Tommy Ryan

I know what you must be thinking. “Poor little rich girl, what does she know about misery?”
– Rose
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?
– Jack

I’m sorry that I didn’t build you a stronger ship, young Rose.
– Thomas Andrews

I’m the king of the world!
– Jack

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…
– Old Rose

I don’t know about you, but I intend to write a strongly worded letter to the White Star Line about all of this.
– Jack

26 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.
– Brock Lovett

What’s the use? Nobody’s listening to us anyway.
– Musician
Well, they don’t listen to us at dinner either.
– Wallace Hartley

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

Wait a second. You were going to kill youself by jumping off of the Titanic?
– Lewis Bodine
All you had to do was wait two days!
– Lewis Bodine

When the ship docks, I’m getting off with you.
– Rose
This is crazy.
– Jack
I know. It doesn’t make any sense. That’s why I trust it.
– Rose

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