Titanic (1997) Poster


Kathy Bates: Molly Brown



  • Jack : [to Ruth and other guests dining at their table]  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.

    Molly Brown : Well said, Jack.

  • 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!

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Molly Brown : [looking in the mirror with Jack after she dressed him up in her son's tuxedo]  You shine up like a new penny.

  • Molly Brown : [siting on a life boat while other survivors remain silent, seeing the Titanic floating on a 90 degrees stand]  God Almighty.

  • Molly Brown : [walking around with Jack in the dining room as dinner is being served]  Ain't nothing to it, is there, Jack? Remember, they love money so pretend like you own a gold mine and then you're in the club.

  • [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?

  • 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!


    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?
