Isabella Paradine: [on board the Carpathia] The ocean is so big, isn't it? And it makes one feel so small, so... insignificant.
Fifth Officer Harold Lowe: Maybe it's just to remind us that someday we'll all die.
Isabella Paradine: Yes.
Isabella Paradine: A ship of widows.
Fifth Officer Harold Lowe: It's good, ma'am, that we don't know how things is gonna end in the beginning, or we'd never make the journeys that we were meant to take in this life. The journeys that make us who we are.
Captain Edward J. Smith: She has taken damage along three hundred feet of her starboard side.
J. Bruce Ismay: Oh my God!
Captain Edward J. Smith: You have broken one of the cardinal rules of safety, never turn your broadside to danger. Had we struck the berg head-on, only one compartment would have been flooded.
First Officer William Murdoch: I thought I could avoid hitting the berg altogether, sir.
Captain Edward J. Smith: And not only did you stop your engines, you reversed them! She would have turned much more quickly the greater her forward motion!
First Officer William Murdoch: Yes, but the watertight doors where closed immediately after impact. The c-compartments behind them where sealed.
Captain Edward J. Smith: These watertight bulkheads go up only to E deck. The weight of the water in the bow will pull her down by the head.
J. Bruce Ismay: This ship can't sink!
Captain Edward J. Smith: The ship has about two hours.
J. Bruce Ismay: The lifeboats, we have lifeboats, we must launch them at once, get everyone off the ship.
Second Officer Charles Lightoller: That won't be entirely possible.
J. Bruce Ismay: Of course it's possible! We must begin immediately.
Captain Edward J. Smith: You may recall that we have precisely the number of lifeboats required by the British Board Of Trade: seats for twelve hundred people.
J. Bruce Ismay: There's over two thousand people aboard this ship.
Captain Edward J. Smith: Two thousand, two hundred and thirty souls.
J. Bruce Ismay: I... cannot allow this.
Captain Edward J. Smith: Mr. Ismay, it was under your directive that we where traveling through an ice field at the arrogant speed of twenty-one knots! I am the master of this vessel and I have been too complacent!
First Officer Dean: How long can they last in that cold water?
Captain Arthur Henry Rostron: Not long. Few minutes perhaps.
First Officer Dean: An easy death.
Captain Arthur Henry Rostron: I don't know if there is such a thing.
Isabella Paradine: [Wynn is trying to persuade Isabella to board a lifeboat] Wynn, I can't leave you!
Wynn Park: You couldn't abandon your daughter, we both knew that deep down. We had a few days. That's all there was.
Isabella Paradine: Please don't say that!
Wynn Park: Now! You must go now!
[He forces her to get into the boat]
Wynn Park: Claire's waiting for you.
Isabella Paradine: Wynn, she's yours. Claire is our daughter. Please forgive me.
Wynn Park: I love you.
[They both watch each other as the boat is lowered]
