[Thinks]
Molly Brown: Well... guess I did let a couple go.
[Reads from paper]
Molly Brown: "'One thing's for blank sure,' said Mrs. Brown. 'This time we ain't puttin' up with no blank blank Rocky Mountain rudeness!'" Ohhh! And the worst of all! It isn't even on the Society page! It's on the *Sports* page!

Titanic (1997)
Molly Brown: You shine up like a new penny.

Molly Brown: [on seeing the upended Titanic] God Almighty.

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: 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!

[about his silverware during dinner]
Jack: Are these all for me?
Molly Brown: Just start from the outside and work your way in.

Molly Brown: Why do they insist on announcing dinner like a damned cavalry charge?

Molly Brown: Do you have the slightest comprehension of what you're getting into?
Jack: Not really.
Molly Brown: Well, you're about to fall into the snake pit... what are you planning to wear?
[nods at the clothes Jack has on. He looks down and shrugs]
Molly Brown: I thought so. Come on.

Molly Brown: Ain't nothing to it, is there, Jack? Remember, they love money so pretend like you own a gold mine and you're in the club.

Molly Brown: You gonna cut her meat for her too there, Cal?

Robert Hitchins: You don't understand. If we go back, they'll swamp the boat, they'll pull us right down, I'm tellin' you!
Molly Brown: Knock it off. You're scaring me. C'mon girls! Grab an oar, let's go!
Robert Hitchins: Are you out of your mind? We're in the middle of the North Atlantic! Now do you people want to live, or do you want to die?
Molly Brown: I don't understand a one of you. What's the matter with ya? It's your men out there! There's plenty o' room for more!
Robert Hitchins: And there'll be one less on this boat, if you don't shut that hole in your face!

Robert Hitchins: [deleted scene] C'mon, pull! Pull!
Smith: [Over brass megaphone] Come back! Come back to the ship! Boat 6, come back to the ship!
Molly Brown: [to other rowers] Stop! We have to go back!
Robert Hitchins: No. The suction will pull us down if we don't keep going.
Molly Brown: We've lots more room! I say we go back.
Robert Hitchins: No! It's our lives now, not theirs. And I'm in charge of this boat, madam! Now *row*!
Smith: This is the captain! This is the captain! Come back!
[pause]
Smith: The fools.

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?


A Night to Remember (1958)
Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: [looks around Lifeboat 6 as it's being lowered] Hey, we've only got one sailor with us. That's not enough to manage this boat.
[Calls up to the Boat Deck as other women look around and confirm her observation]
Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: Hold it there.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: [to seamen at falls] Stop lowering.
[Calls down to the boat]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: What's the matter?
Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: Hey son. We only got one sailor in this boat!
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: [Looks around Boat Deck for any available seamen] Are there any spare hands here?
Maj. Arthur Peuchen: [Looks around, notices there are no seamen around, and steps forward] I'll go, if you like.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Are you a sailor?
Maj. Arthur Peuchen: I'm a yachtsman.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: [Indicates lowering ropes for the boat] If you're seaman enough to slip down that lifeline, you can go.
[Yells down to boat]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Below.
Hitchens: Sir.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Let's have that line.
[the lifeline is swung towards the side of the ship. Lightoller grabs it after a couple of tries and holds it for Peuchen]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Right. Good luck.
[Peuchen grabs the line and swings out over the edge. Lightoller watches as he lowers himself down the rope and safely into the boat. Once he's in safely, Lightoller addresses the seamen at the falls]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Lower away together.

Hitchens: We got no water, no compass, no charts.
Margaret Brown: Oh, shut up.

Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: Leadville Johnny, they call him. And he was the best golderned gold miner in Colorado! Fifteen I was when I married him.
First Class Passenger: Really?
[in deep upper-class British accent]
Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: Uh-hmm. And he didn't have a cent. Well, three months later later he struck it rich and we was millionaires. Do you know what he did?
First Class Passenger: No?
Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: He built me a house and he had silver dollars cemented all over the floors of every room!
First Class Passenger: I say, how very tiresome for you!


Voyager from the Unknown (1982)
Jeffrey: You're Molly Brown!
Molly Brown: For better or worse.
Jeffrey: Molly Brown! The unsinkable Molly Brown!
Molly Brown: Unsinkable? Well if that's the case, I should hope so.

Jeffrey: You better be there Bogg... you better be there.
[Titanic ready to sink into the water]
Jeffrey: [Jeffrey floats in the air, Molly Brown looks for him]
Molly Brown: Jeffrey? Jeffrey.


"Titanic" (1996)
Molly Brown: [after observing that Jamie is shocked seeing her smoking a cigar] What's the matter? Never seen a woman smoke a cigar before?
Jamie Perse: Well, no. I mean, not a lady, anyway. Not like you.
Molly Brown: Well, get used to it. Woman's emancipation. We can smoke cigars. We can tell you men how to run the world. Hell, we'll probably have a woman president in the next hundred years.
