Jaws Movie Quotes

Matt Hooper ( Richard Dreyfuss ):
"I'm not going to waste my time arguing with a man who's lining up to be a hot lunch."

Chief Martin Brody ( Roy Scheider ):
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."

"I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, Chief. I'll find him for three but I'll catch and kill him for ten."

Mayor Larry Vaughn ( Murray Hamilton ):
"Martin, it's all psychological. You yell baracuda and everybody says 'Huh, what?' You yell shark and we've got a panic on our hands on the Fourth of July."

Quint ( Robert Shaw ):
"I'm not talking about treasure boating or game sailing. I'm talking about sharking."

Mayor Larry Vaughn ( Murray Hamilton ):
