  • (Charles Belchier) "Yes."
  • (Jill Dixon) "Then it would make a differance then wouldn't it?"

  • (Chief Engineer Joseph Bell) "Whatever happens, we've got to keep the lights going. I'll give the word when it's time to go and then it's every man for himself. But it woun't be too long. I heard that the Carpathia is on her way to us. She should reach us any time now."

  • (Kenneth More) "No seaman ever thinks he is. I've been at sea since I was a boy. I've been in sail. I've even been shipwrecked before. I know what the sea can do. But, this is different-."
  • (James Dyrenforth) "Because we hit an iceberg?"
  • (Kenneth More) "No- Because we were so sure. Because even though it's happened, it's still unbelieveable. I don't think I'll ever feel sure again, about anything."
  • (Ismay) "Women and children first."
  • (Mr. Isador Straus) "Please, Rachel, get in the boat."
