Captain Edward J. Smith (of The Titanic): "...How long will she last?" Andrews: "Just trying to work that out, now. As far as I can see, she made fourteen feet of water in the first ten minutes after the collision. That's not very fast. She should live... another... hour and a half. Yes. About that, I should think." Captain Edward J. Smith: "There must be no panic." Andrews: "No." Captain Edward J. Smith: "You'll be careful of what you say to the passengers." Andrews: "Of course... How many people are there on board?" Captain Edward J. Smith: "2200, or more. And room in the boats for...? How many?" Andrews: "1200." Captain Edward J. Smith: "I don't think the Board of Trade regulations ever visualized this situation. Do you?"
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller (comes onto Carpathia's bridge): "Sir?" Capt. Arthur Rostron: "We're at the place now. I thought you'd like to see for yourself." Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: "Oh yes. Thank you, sir." Capt. Arthur Rostron: "We've only found one body, I'm afraid. The rest must have been carried further on by the current. Of course, we'll go on searching for survivors until we turn back to New York." Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: "Yes sir. How many...?" Capt. Arthur Rostron: "The purser's checked the figures now. We have on board 705 survivors. Several of those in the boats were dead, I'm afraid." Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: "1500 lost." Capt. Arthur Rostron: "That's right, yes."
(On The Carpathia, after the Titanic sank) Wireless Operator Harold Thomas Cottam: "Excuse me, sir." Capt. Arthur Rostron: "Oh Cottam, yes, what is it?" Wireless Operator Harold Thomas Cottam: "A message from The Californian, sir -- she's nearby. Just heard about The Titanic. Wants to know if there's anything she can do." Capt. Arthur Rostron: "Tell them: "No, nothing. Everything that was humanly possible... has been done." " (cut to Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller of The Titanic, staring solemnly)
(Final Title Card) "But this is not the end of the story ~ for their sacrifice was not in vain. Today there are lifeboats for all. Unceasing radio vigil and, in the North Atlantic, The International Ice Patrol guards the sea lanes making them safe for the peoples of the world."
