    Brody: Is it true that most people get attacked by sharks in three feet of water about ten feet from the beach?
    Hooper: Yeah.
    Brody: And that... and that before people started to swim for recreation - I mean before sharks knew what they were missing - that a lot of these attacks weren't reported?
    Hooper: That's right.
    Brody: Now this shark that... that... that swims alone...
    Hooper: Rogue.
    Brody: What's it called?
    Hooper, Brody: [together] Rogue.
    Brody: Rogue, yeah. Now this guy, he... he keeps swimmin' around in a place where the feeding is good until the food supply is gone, right?
    Hooper: It's called "territoriality". It's just a theory that I happen to... agree with.
    Brody: Then why don't we have one more drink and go down and cut that shark open?
    Ellen Brody: Martin? Can you do that?
    Brody: I can do anything; I'm the chief of police.

    Jaws was honestly my FAVORITE movie as a kid! I'd watch it over and over again. There is a lady in the movie who looks just like my mom.

    Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, Chief. We was comin' back from the island of Tinian to Leyte... just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in 12 minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. 13-footer. You know how you know that when you're in the water, Chief? You tell by looking from the dorsal to the tail. What we didn't know, was our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin', so we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know, it was kinda like old squares in the battle like you see in the calendar named "The Battle of Waterloo" and the idea was: shark comes to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces. You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand. I know how many men, they averaged six an hour. On Thursday morning, Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player. Boatswain's mate. I thought he was asleep. I reached over to wake him up. Bobbed up, down in the water just like a kinda top. Upended. Well, he'd been bitten in half below the waist. Noon, the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us. He swung in low and he saw us... he was a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper. Anyway, he saw us and he come in low and three hours later a big fat PBY comes down and starts to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened... waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went in the water; 316 men come out and the sharks took the rest, June the 29th, 1945. Anyway, we delivered the bomb.

    Greatest movie EVER. This can't be disputed.

    I'll never forget seeing it with the family as a youngster (like 9) in a theater while on vacation on Cape Cod. A hot summer day, we went to the movies to get some AC. I remember the sensation in the dark theater while the music would play during those early underwater scenes filmed from the shark's perspective...felt like something was swimming under the seats, I lifted my feet up on my chair.
    Then when the movie ended, we returned to our rented cottage and went down to the beach. I got ankle deep in the water and could go no further.
    Masterful film, too bad Spielberg became so full of himself later on.
    This weekend we rock Portland

    I love Jaws . This movie was the reason I became so fascinated with sharks, especially White Sharks. Finally acted on this fascination is 2006 when I went into a cage to look at White Sharks off The Great Barrier Reef . One more great reason to go to OZ when PJ tours there.

    probably my favorite movie of all time

    Quint is definitely my favorite character of all time

    Quint: What are you? Some kind of half-assed astronaut? :lol:
    Quint: Jesus H Christ, when I was a boy, every little squirt wanted to be a harpooner or a sword fisherman. What d'ya have there - a portable shower or a monkey cage? :lol:
    Hooper: Anti-Shark cage.
    Quint: Anti-shark cage. You go inside the cage?
    Quint: Cage goes in the water, you go in the water. Shark's in the water. Our shark.
    Quint: Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu, you ladies of Spain. For we've received orders for to sail back to Boston. And so nevermore shall we see you again

    Ellen Brody: Martin hates boats. Martin hates water. Martin... Martin sits in his car when we go on the ferry to the mainland. I guess it's a childhood thing. It's a... there's a clinical name for it isn't there?

    Brody: Drowning.


    :lol: one of my all time favorite movies EVER !

    the banter back and forth between Brody , Hooper and Quint shaped me a lot in my writing when it comes to dialogue.

    Going to have to watch this tonight !!

    Every time one of my friends visits from out of town, it never fails this movie winds up been played.
    We quote the whole movie.
    The other people with us actually clapped for us when it was over. lol ah drunken nights watching jaws are the best. :lol:
