A meeting point for you and me

Movie scenes that ‘will go on and on…’ in my memory

This is one of those movie scenes that will be etched(fixed) on my memory forever: it is the famous “I’m flying!” scene from Titanic, the drama-romance directed by James Cameron and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Which is/are yours?

Here you can read the script lines for this scene:

Rose: Hello Jack. I changed my mind. They said you might be out here.
Jack: Shhh. Gimme your hand. Now close your eyes, go on. Now step up. Now hold on to the railing. Keep your eyes closed, don’t peek.
Rose: I’m not.
Jack: Step up on the railing. Hold on, hold on. Keep your eyes closed. Do you trust me?
Rose: I trust you.
[Jack opens Rose’s arms]
Jack: All right. Open your eyes.
Rose: [gasp] I’m flying, Jack!
[Jack starts singing]
Jack: Come, Josephine, in my flying machine, going up, she goes up, up she goes.
[they kiss]
