Just a little game I thought of. Insert dialogue from other films into JC's "Titanic". Here are mine:

(In the car, after Rose slams her hand onto the window):
Rose: "I said goddamn what a rush!"

(Rose and Jack burst through a door onto the main deck afterwards, just before iceberg appears)
Rose: "When the ship dock, I'm getting off with you"
Jack (turns to face the camera): "This is Jack Dawson here on the greatest ship ever built. Right now, I'm so happy I could DIE!!!"

(Rose runs into Jack after jumping back on to the Titanic)
Jack: "Rose, you're out of your mind...
Rose: "Yeah! Ain't it cool?"

I guess, at some point, dear lovely Cal may say to Rose, "frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." Because he sure as hell didn't! There are several scenes in the movie where this line may fit quite well...

"Hello, everyone. This... is... Mrs.... Jack Dawson." (Judy Garland, "A Star Is Born)

"Are we sinking or is it just the hash?" (Lily Tomlin)

During Renault scene, overdubs of Rose saying over and over, "You LIKE me, you REALLY LIKE me!" (Sally Field)

It's 800 miles to NYC, we have a full tank of coal, half a packet of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses... HIT IT!

I can also imagine: Rose to Jack, or vise versa:
"Take me to bed, or lose me forever"!! (Meg Ryan's line from "TOP GUN").

Another possibility: Perhaps Jack to Cal:
"I know they had to scrape the bottom of the barrel. Where did they scrap you up?" (Henry Fonda to James Cagney, in "MISTER ROBERTS").

What fun-we were so overdue for a new game. How about that fabulous line from JAWS (Brody to Quint) uttered by just about anyone in a Titanic lifeboat- "I think we're gonna need a bigger boat".

Katherine Hepburn transported from the tiller of The African Queen to that of lifeboat 8 as the Countess of Rothes:

"I steered rather well for a beginner, didn't I?"
"Not so bad, Miss, considerin'. But that wasn't such bad water - nothin' compared to what's farther on."
"I can hardly wait! Now that I've had a taste of it, I don't wonder you love boating!"

From the Poseidon Adventure's Reverend Scott:
"You pompous ass!" - Jack to Ruth in reply to her 'rootless existence' sneer.

From The Sixth Sense:
"I see dead people...all the time" - Lowe in the returning lifeboat.

From Truly, Madly, Deeply - Alan Rickman's ghost talking to his love Juliet Stevenson:
"Thank you for missing me" - Jack to Rose in Titanic 'Heaven' at the top of the Grand Staircase.

From The Sound of Music:
"So long! Farewell! Auf wiedersehen! Goodbye!"
Rose to snivelling Ruth when she refuses to get in the boat!.

From Mary Poppins:
"Chim-chimenee-chim-chimenee-chim-chim-cheroo!" - Fabrizio in the water about to be re-shaped by the falling funnel.

From The Empire Strikes Back:

"Jack, I am you father. Come with me and we shall rule world as 'Mr. Evil' and 'runtboy.'"

Cal to Jack, on the boat as LB #2 is lowering, when Cal tells Jack that he always wins.

You've all come up with some great lines you guys. Here are a couple more I came up with:

(Ship hits the iceberg)
Murdoch: "D'oh!"

(After the collision)
Smith: "Is there anything that will stop this ship going down?"
Andrews: "Yeah, the bottom of the ocean".

Capt. Smith, to the world at large, just after the collision.
"Beam me up, Scottie"
or "There's life, Jim, but not as we know it".

You guys are too funny. I'm still laughing. Some of you should get together and do a mini-version of the film or a portion of it and implement your lines.

I'm sure we can think of a way to merge Pirates of the Caribbean and the Titanic in a funny way....but no lines are coming to mind for me.

Hi Mark.

Actually, another perfect The Three Stooges dialogue can also be included, albeit a pre-iceberg scene; the dialogue is borrowed from one of the medieval storylines:
OFFICER DON LUNCH: The Captain requires your presence on the Bridge!!
CREWMEMBER JORGE BEEBEE (In Reply): We don't have any presents. The stores were all closed.
(followed by a head-slap and "Quiet!")

BTW, we could also intersperse show tunes in for various scenes.
One possibility: Leo and Kate are chatting, then we hear Gordon McRae and Shirley Jones:
LEO: "Chicks and ducks and geese are gonna scurry, when I take you out in my surry...."

or Kate is dubbed by Marni Nixon (we saw her in one film musical - she played a nun - and she dubbed for Audrey, Deborah, and I believe Mitzi Gaynor). Anyway
KATE (referring to Billy's CAL): "I'm gonna wash that man right out of my hair....".

Other possibilities: Leo invites Kate to join him at the 3rd Class Party:
LEO (sounding amazingly like Yul Brynner): "Shall we dance!!....".

Finally, we could see a despondent Frances Fisher apparently talking to a group of nuns:
Nuns: "How do you solve a problem like...
Frances: "My daughter?...
Nuns: "How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
"How do you find a name which means...
Frances: "My daughter?..."

Yes, I know we will all now have the various Rogers and Hammerstein tunes going through our heads.

In the Real Party:
Rose stands on her tip toes and falls down.
Rose: Owww!!!
Jack: Are you alright? Maybe you should sit down in the corner over there.
Rose: Nobody puts baby in the corner!
