Titanic (1997)
Rose: I am not a foreman in one of your mills that you can command. I am your fiancée.
Cal Hockley: My fian... my fiancée! Yes, you are, and my wife. My wife in practice if not yet by law, so you will honor me. You will honor me the way a wife is required to honor a husband. Because I will not be made a fool, Rose. Is this in any way unclear?
Rose: No.

Rose: [looking at the Titanic for the first time] I don't see what all of the fuss is about. It doesn't look any bigger than the Mauritania.
Cal Hockley: You can be blasé about some things, Rose, but not about Titanic. It's over a hundred feet longer than the Mauritania and far more luxurious!

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

Molly Brown: [to the group who are dining at the same table] Hey, uh, who thought of the name Titanic? Was it you, Bruce?
Ismay: Yes, actually. I wanted to convey sheer size, and size means stability, luxury, and above all, strength.
Rose: Do you know of Dr. Freud, Mr. Ismay? His ideas about the male preoccupation with size might be of particular interest to you.
Ruth: [whispering] What's gotten into you?
Rose: Excuse me.
[She rises and leaves]
Ruth: I do apologize.
Molly Brown: She's a pistol, Cal! Hope you can handle her.
Cal Hockley: Well, I may have to start minding what she reads from now on, won't I, Mrs. Brown?
Ismay: Freud? Who is he? Is he a passenger?

Ruth: [with other passengers in line behind her] Will the lifeboats be seated according to class? I hope they're not too crowded.
Rose: Oh mother, shut up! Don't you understand? The water is freezing and there aren't enough boats. Not enough by half. Half the people on this ship are going to die.
Cal Hockley: Not the better half.
Molly Brown: Come on Ruth, get in the boat. First-class seats are right up here.
Cal Hockley: You know, it's a pity I didn't keep that drawing. It'll be worth a lot more by morning.
Rose: You unimaginable bastard!

Cal Hockley: [after telling Rose there's another lifeboat on the other side of the ship and he and Jack can get on the lifeboat and away from the ship safely] You're a good liar.
Jack: Almost as good as you. There's uh- there's no arrangement is there?

Cal Hockley: [takes money out from his safe and puts it into the inner pockets of his suit jacket, takes the diamond necklace from the safe and puts it into the pocket of his trench coat] I make my own luck.
Lovejoy: [shows his gun opening the right jacket coat] So do I.

Rose: Mr. Andrews... I saw the iceberg and I see it in your eyes... please, tell me the truth.
Thomas Andrews: The ship will sink.
Rose: You're certain?
Thomas Andrews: Yes. In an hour or so, all of this will be at the bottom of the Atlantic.
Cal Hockley: What?
Thomas Andrews: Please, tell only who you must. I don't want to be responsible for a panic. And get to a boat quickly, don't wait. You remember what I told you about the boats?
Rose: Yes... I understand.

Lovejoy: What could possibly be funny?
Cal Hockley: I put the diamond in the coat. And I put the coat on her!

Jack: There's, uh, there's no arrangement is there?
Cal Hockley: No, there is. Not that you'll benefit much from it. I always win Jack, one way or another.

Cal Hockley: Any room for a gentleman, gentlemen?

Cal Hockley: Rose is displeased... what to do?

[scoffs as Rose's paintings are being unpacked]
Cal Hockley: God, not those finger paintings again. They certainly were a waste of money.
Rose: The difference between Cal's taste in art and mine is that I have some. They're fascinating. It's like being inside a dream or something. There's truth but no logic.
Trudy Bolt: What's the artist's name?
Rose: Something Picasso.
Cal Hockley: [scoffs] Something Picasso? He won't amount to a thing.
[pause]
Cal Hockley: He won't, trust me. At least they were cheap.

Cal Hockley: I hope you enjoy your time together!

1st Officer William Murdoch: Stop pushing! Stay back!
Tommy Ryan: Will you give us a chance to live, you limey bastard?
1st Officer William Murdoch: I'll shoot any man that tries to get past me! Get back!
Tommy Ryan: Bastard!
1st Officer William Murdoch: Get Back!
Cal Hockley: We had a deal, damn you!
1st Officer William Murdoch: [throws a pack of money Cal had used to bribe him earlier] You're money can't save you any more than it can save me. Get Back!

Cal Hockley: [to Jack, after he mistakenly believes he molested Rose] Completely unacceptable! What made you think you could put your hands on my fiancée? Look at me, you filth!

Cal Hockley: We'll both have the lamb, medium-rare with very little mint sauce.
[to Rose]
Cal Hockley: You like lamb, don't you sweet-pea?
[Rose smiles sarcastically]
Molly Brown: You gonna cut her meat for her, too, Cal?
