It was my whole world and all the people in it, and the inertia of my life. Plunging ahead and me powerless to stop it
Titanic deleted scene: extended Carpathia sequence
"1500 people went into the sea when Titanic sank from under it. There were 20 lifeboats floating nearby, and only one came back. One. Six were saved from the icy water; myself included. Six out of 1500. Afterwards, the 700 people in the boats had nothing to do but to wait. Wait to die. Wait to live. Wait for an absolution, that would never come."
The sort of mutual respect that we had for each other before we started working together really did lend itself to the beginning of a great friendship because it was built on very strong foundations. It was nothing to do with fancying the other one, or any sort of flirting, or anything like that, that just never happened. And I think that’s part of the reason why the friendship has always been so sincere. We’ve just been very very lucky to have always had that and been able to hang on to it.
