About Rose
"Outwardly, I was everything a well brought up girl should be. Inside, I was screming".

This quote tell us a lot about Rose: apparently the typical Edwardian Lady, she is instead a rebel and passionate girl, trapped inside a insincere and overwhelming society. At the age of 17 she is forced to engage Caledon Hocley to pull herself and her mother out of debts, and boards on Titanic with them to be taken to America for the marriage. But that voyage will change her life forever...

Young Rose is played by Kate Winslet, while old Rose is played by Gloria Stuart.

(Looking at her salvaged hand mirror)
Old Rose: This was mine. How extraordinary! And it looks the same as it did last time I saw it... The reflection's changed a bit.

(Drinking black beer)
Rose: What? Do you think a first class girl can't drink?

(Rose shows Jack the diamond)
Rose: Jack, I want you to draw me like one of your French girls. Wearing this...
Jack: All right.
Rose: Wearing *only* this.

(about Jack drawing her naked)
Old Rose: I couldn't stop shaking. It was the most erotic moment of my life. Up until then, at least.
Lewis Bodine: So what happened next?
Old Rose: You mean, did we "do it"? Sorry to disappoint you Mr. Bodine, but Jack was a complete gentleman.

Rose: Put your hands on me, Jack.

Rose: When the ship docks, I'm getting off with you.
Jack: This is crazy...
Rose: I know... it doesn't make any sense. That's why I trust it.

(to Cal, referring to Jack)
Rose: I'd rather be his whore than your wife.

Old Rose: 1,500 people went into the sea... when Titanic sank from under us... there were twenty boats floating nearby... and only one came back. Six were saved from the water... myself included. *Six*. Out of 1,500. Afterward, the 700 people in the boats had nothing to do but wait... wait to die... wait to live... wait for an absolution... that would never come.

Lewis Bodine: We never found anything on Jack... there's no record of him at all.
Old Rose: No, there wouldn't be, would there? And I've never spoken of him until now... Not to anyone... Not even your grandfather... A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson and that he saved me... in every way that a person can be saved. I don't even have a picture of him. He exists now... only in my memory.

(as the Carpathia is arriving in New York)
Carpathia Steward: Can I take your name, please love?
Rose: Dawson, Rose Dawson.
