What is the worst line of Titanic?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TitanicShack : One Thread

I love Titanic but I just hate it when Jack says...."I'm just a tumbleweed blowin' in the wind"

Its soooo corny....anyone else agree?

Jo, I hated that line too....but I thought the worst line was the "Good Gracious" when Rose saw the necklace. It just didn't seem to fit her character very well....

Play nice, or I'm going to have to play an online version of whack- a-mole! I'd hate to have to start deleting postings.

Now, getting back to the original question, I would say that the worst line of Titanic would have to be..."I'm the king of the world!". That would have to be the WORST!!

Courtney, I certainly can see how you would think the King of the world comment was the worst but I actually like that one. It seemed to fit the moment ya know? Everything in Jack's life was looking great for a change, he was going home, he was with his friends, and he felt like he was flying (literally and figuretively) so he had reason to feel to that way. I tend to think that when James Cameron said it at the oscars it was a bit corny:) I still think when Rose said "Good gracious." should be in the top five worst. Like I said before it really just didn't go with the character.

Jo, I can't remember, when does Jack say that line about being a tumbleweed?

By the way...Jack says that line when he's walking on deck with Rose...before she steals his folder and then looks at his drawings!!!
