Jack Dawson Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Ruth: You find that sort of rootless existence appealing, do you?

Jack: Oh yes, ma'am, I do. I've got everything I need right here with me. I have air in my lungs and a few blank sheets of paper. I love waking up, 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. I don't intend on wasting it. You never know what hand you'll get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you. To make each day count.

Rose: Everybody expects me to be this delicate little flower which I am not! I'm sturdy, I'm strong as a horse. I'm here to do something, not just sit around and be decorative. You see these hands? They were made for work.

Waiter: Care for something, miss? Would you like some tea or some bouillon?

Rose: No!

(Jack laughs)

Rose: There is something in me, Jack. Like a dynamo, I feel it. I don't know what it is whenever I should be an artist on a sculptor or I don't know. A-a dancer like Isadora Duncan or wild pagan spirit. Or a moving picture actress.

Rose: My dream has always been to just run away and become an artist. Living in the garrett, poor but free.

Jack: You wouldn't last two days. There is no hot water and hardly any caviar.

Rose: I happen to hate caviar. And I hate people telling me what dreams I should and shouldn't have.

(Rose is going through Jack's sketchbook...)

Rose: You liked this woman. You used her several times.

Jack: Well. She had beautiful hands, you see?

Rose: I think you must have had a love affair with her.

Jack: No, no, no. Just with her hands. She was a one-legged prostitute. See? She had a good sense of humor though.

Rose: Paris? You do get around for a p... Well, a... a person of limited means.

Jack: Go on. A poor guy. You can say it.

(Jack asks if Rose loves Cal...)

Rose: This is absurd. You don't know me and I don't know you and we are not having this conversation at all. You are rude and uncouth and presumptuous and I am leaving now, Jack. Mr. Dawson. It's been a pleasure. I sought you out to thank you and now I have thanked you.

Jack: And you've insulted me.

Rose: Well, you deserved it.

Jack: Right.

Rose: Right.

Jack: I thought you were leaving.

Rose: I am. You are so annoying. Wait. I don't have to leave. This is my part of the ship. You leave.

Jack: Well, well, well. Now who's being rude?

(Rose shows Jack her engagement ring...)

Jack: God, look at that thing. You would have gone straight to the bottom.

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 have happened to this girl to make her think she had no way out?

(Jack is trying to talk Rose out of jumping...)

Jack (to Rose): I'm telling you water that cold, like right down there it hits you like 1000 knives stabbing you all over your body. You can't breathe. You can't think. Least not about anything but the pain. Which is why I'm not looking forward to jumping in there after you.

(Rose is getting ready to jump off the ship...)

Rose: Don't presume to tell me what I will and will not do. You don't know me.

Jack: Well, you would have done it already.

Rose: You're distracting me. Go away.

Jack: I can't. I'm involved now. You let go, and I'm going to have to jump in there after you.

Tommy: That's typical. First-class dogs come down here to take a sh*te.

Jack: Lets us know where we rank in the scheme of things.

Tommy: Like we could forget?

Jack: I'm the king of the world!

(Jack is waving at the people on the pier seeing Titanic leave...)

Jack: Good-bye!

Fabrizio: You know somebody?

Jack: Of course not. That's not the point. Good-bye! I'll miss you!

Fabrizio (starts waving too): Good-bye! I will never forget you!
