Line(s) of the Day #Jaws

Jaws bigger boat close up

You’re gonna need a bigger boat.

Police Chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) in Jaws (1975), considered the first summer blockbuster. Despite a troubled shoot featuring technical problems and missed deadlines, it was a huge success and launched the career of director Steven Spielberg into Hollywood’s elite.

      • It’s really sort of amazing how many great moments in movies were adlibed. Probably the reason they’re remembered is because they’re not expected.

      • Harrison also ad libed the whole “Ah, everything’s fine up here,” line in “Star Wars”. Apparently he didn’t like the line as written, and Lucas told him to try something else. It’s one of the reasons why he’s stumbling through the scene, because he’s making up what so say as they’re filming.

      • Harrison also ad libed the famous “I know” line, after telling Lucas that Han Solo would not say, “I love you, too.” Harrison seemed to do a LOT of that with Lucas . . . 😉

      • It seems to only happen with George Lucas. He is famous for telling George on the first movie, “You can write this stuff, but you can’t say it.”

      • Oh, and one of the greatest ad libs: Bill Paxton’s rant after the drop ship crash in “Aliens”. He was only supposed to say, “That’s it, man,” and there would be the rest of the scene with Riply and Newt. All from, “Game over, Man–” was made up on the spot.

    • Really is a a classic. And that music! It’s the only theme that’s referenced as much as Psycho. It was even used as part of the music as one of the introductions for one of the fighters in a British boxing heavyweight title fight yesterday haha.
