Hitchens Quotes in A Night to Remember (1958)
Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: [looks around Lifeboat 6 as it's being lowered] Hey, we've only got one sailor with us. That's not enough to manage this boat.
[Calls up to the Boat Deck as other women look around and confirm her observation]
Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: Hold it there.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: [to seamen at falls] Stop lowering.
[Calls down to the boat]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: What's the matter?
Mrs. Margaret 'Molly' Brown: Hey son. We only got one sailor in this boat!
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: [Looks around Boat Deck for any available seamen] Are there any spare hands here?
Maj. Arthur Peuchen: [Looks around, notices there are no seamen around, and steps forward] I'll go, if you like.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Are you a sailor?
Maj. Arthur Peuchen: I'm a yachtsman.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: [Indicates lowering ropes for the boat] If you're seaman enough to slip down that lifeline, you can go.
[Yells down to boat]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Below.
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Let's have that line.
[the lifeline is swung towards the side of the ship. Lightoller grabs it after a couple of tries and holds it for Peuchen]
Second Officer Charles Herbert Lightoller: Right. Good luck.
[Peuchen grabs the line and swings out over the edge. Lightoller watches as he lowers himself down the rope and safely into the boat. Once he's in safely, Lightoller addresses the seamen at the falls]
