Default Trivia question.

Though not exactly cruise related, it is about life at sea. At the time of it's publication, "Jaws" was compared to "Moby Dick" by many reviewers.

Question: In the movie version, what was quoted almost exactly from "Moby Dick?"
Hint: It was quoted several times.

Very good answers so far. None of them correct, yet, though.

My favorite quote from the move though is "This was no boating accident!"

An additional hint though: The same character said it on every occasion, Quint.

I can recall several things said by the Great White (like, "Yummy!" & "Pass the ketchup!") but I can't seem to remember anything Quint said. Oh well, I guess I don't win! <S>

I'm not aware of any character named Ishmael in the movie. Though other biblical names are used, Mat, Ben, etc. And some of the dialogue sounds suspiciously like blank verse.

"Are you going to eat that?" (Is anyone eating that?) was in the movie; but is not the answer.

"Pass the ketchup!" (Anyone got any ketchup?) was "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes," not "Jaws." Though the Jaws theme was used in one sickly funny scene.

The answer may be so obscure that it requires another hint: Song.

By the way, the special edition DVD set is well worth having. Some of the deleted scenes
showed Quint in a light missing from the theatrical release. "I recomend it to your attention" as the old Wiedemann's commercial said.

How about "Here's to swimmin' with bow-legged women"? I always liked that one. No, I don't think that's it. Let me think....

Okay, Stevo me bucko, here we go:

"Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies, farewell and adieu to you ladies of Spain. For we received orders for to sail back to Boston, and soon never more will we see you again."

Sung by good ol' Captain Quint!

If that's not it, I've got another beauty!

Seahunks, you asked for it! The quote is:

"I have not yet begun to fight!!!"

Oops, wrong movie. Here's my all-time favorite bit of Quint poetry:

"Here lies the body of Mary Lee,
died at the age of a hundred and three.
For fifteen years she kept her virginity,
not a bad record for this vicinity."

Let's see you top that one!

Capt. Jack

Chapter XL: Midnight, Forecastle. You got it, KJ. "Farewell and Adieu"

But the words were changed slightly for the movie and I can find no other reference to such a seasong, except in MB and Jaws. That probably means I haven't worked too hard at finding it.

One of the things I liked about the movie was the interplay of music and the plot. It was almost operatic. My very favorite example of this is the scene wherein Quint realizes the Orca is lost and it's now an endgame.

He walks into the cabin, glances up at the lifejackets--after declaring he'll never wear one again--as a flute reproses the tune and juxtaposes it with the shark theme on basses and cellos. It's as if the music mocks him. A brilliant production device on the part of Spielberg and Williams!

Quint is certainly "colorful."
"Front, Bow! Back, Stern! And if you don't get it right, squirt, I'l throw your @** out that little round window in the side. Hahahaha!"

"Back home, we got a taxidermy man. He gonna have a heart attack when he see what I brung in! Hahahaha!"
