    'This was no boating accident!'

    Been wanting to quote from Quint's epic speech about the USS Indianapolis(?), but I'm damned if I can remember any of it verbatim. So I'll just say:

    'A shark has dead eyes, like a doll's eyes...'

    (Shaw wrote the speech himself, and apparently when Spielberg heard it he figured he had an actual film on his hands, not just an exploitation thriller, and considered the speech the heart of the movie)

    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 fin. 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 will 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. He 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.

    I know every bit of this film by heart so I could rattle off countless lines but here are a few of the more obscure ones:

    "This stuff ain't gonna help me in August! The son-of-a-ginks come down here in June! You ain't got one thing on here I ordered. Not a beach umbrella, not a sun lounger, no beach balls! If I can't get service then.." (Brody spills the paint brushes at this point)

    "Now we got a bunch of calls about that Karate school, it seems the nine-year-olds have been 'karate-ing' the picket fences. Chief Brody's office."

    And from the deleted scenes: "I quit, Mr. Quint, I quit, I ain't goin'. I ain't goin' on that slab after that crazy ol' shahk. I ain't crazy."

    And finally one REALLY obscure one: "Twenty-four hours is like three weeks!"

    :lol

    "...daylight's wastin'."

    I say this all the time.

    Don't know if there's another thread on this since I just logged in after being in Florida for a week, but the Jaws ride at Universal Orlando is closing January 2. The whole area is being razed and replaced with another Harry Potter section. :thumbsdown

    Got mediocre pics of the props, which I truly fear for. Will post later. If I lived down there, I would hang around the garbage every day waiting for Quint's harpoon gun and rod and Brody's jacket to be tossed out with the old cotton
    candy. :cry

    Farewell and adieu....

    "Y'all know me. Know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down the pond chasin' bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow you whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', an' down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back your tourists, put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's just too many captains on this island. $10,000 for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole * thing."

    Haha. Cool thread...reminds me of an underground hardcore track that came out on Dub plate/test press in 1992(ish) here in the UK. It's full of classic Jaws quotes...genius...

    DJ Excel - Just When You Thought It Was Safe - YouTube

    Give it a chance...it takes a couple of minutes to get into it...but it's loaded with Jaws goodness!
