1,500 people went into the sea... when Titanic sank from under us... there were twenty boats floating nearby... and only one came back. Six were saved from the water... myself included. Six. Out of 1,500. Afterward, the 700 people in the boats had nothing to do but wait... wait to die... wait to live... wait for an absolution... that would never come.
Jack: Don't do it! Rose: Stay back! Don't come any closer! Jack: Come on, just give me your hand. I'll pull you back over. Rose: No, stay where you are! I mean it! I'll let go! Jack: No, you won't. Rose: 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! Jack: Well, you would've done it already. Rose: You're distracting me! Go away! Jack: I can't. I'm involved now. If you let go, I'm gonna have to jump in there after you. Rose: Don't be absurd. You'd be killed! The fall alone would kill you.
