Fifteen hundred people went into the sea when Titanic sank from under us. There were twenty boats floating nearby and only one came back. One. Six were saved from the water, myself included. Six… out of fifteen hundred. Afterward, the seven hundred people in the boats had nothing to do but wait. Wait to die, wait to live, wait for an absolution that would never come.

April 13th, 1912 ➝ Jack and Rose meet, and he talks her down from the railing. 

Anyway, I, uh, I fell through some thin ice; and I’m telling you, water that cold, like right down there… it hits you like a thousand knives stabbing you all over your body. You can’t breathe. You can’t think. At least, not about anything but the pain. Which is why I’m not looking forward to jumping in there after you. Like I said, I don’t have a choice. I guess I’m kinda hoping you’ll come back over the railing, an’ get me off the hook here. You’re crazy. That’s what everybody says but, with all due respect, Miss, I’m not the one hanging off the back of a ship here. Come on. C’mon, give me your hand. You don’t want to do this.

Don’t do it. Stay back! Don’t come any closer! Come on, just give me your hand. I’ll pull you back over. No, stay where you are! I mean it! I’ll let go! No, you won’t. What do you mean, “No, I won’t”? Don’t presume to tell me what I will and will not do, you don’t know me! Well, you woulda done it already. You’re distracting me! Go away! I can’t. I’m involved now. You let go, and I’m, I’m gonna have to jump in there after you. Don’t be absurd. You’d be killed! I’m a good swimmer. The fall alone would kill you. It would hurt. I’m not saying it wouldn’t. Tell you the truth, I’m a lot more concerned about that water being so cold. How cold? Freezing. Maybe a couple degrees over. You ever, uh, you ever been to Wisconsin? What? Well, they have some of the coldest winters around. I grew up there, near Chippewa Falls. I remember when I was a kid, me and my father, we went ice fishing out on Lake Wissota. Ice fishing is, you know, where you… I know what ice fishing is! Sorry. You just seem like, y’know, kind of an indoor girl.

Like a force to be reckoned with, a mighty ocean or a gentle kiss, I will love you with every single thing I have. Like a tidal wave, we’ll make a mess; calm waters, if that serves you best. I will love you without any strings attached. It’s okay if you can’t catch your breath. You can take the oxygen straight out of my own chest.
