EXT. KELDYSH DECK

A desultory wrap party for the expedition is in progress. There is music and some of the (co-ed) Russian crew are dancing. Bodine is getting drunk in the aggressive style of Baker Joughin.

Lovett stands at the rail, looking down into the black water. Lizzy comes to him, offering him a beer. She puts her hand on his arm.

LIZZY
I'm sorry.

BROCK
We were pissin' in the wind the whole time.

Lovett notices a figure move through the lights far down at the stern of the ship.

LOVETT
Oh shit.

EXT. KELDYSH STERN DECK

Rose walks through the shadows of the deck machinery. Her nightgown blows in the wind. Her feet are bare. Her hands are clutched at her chest, almost as if she is praying.

ON BROCK AND LIZZY running down the stairs from the top deck, hauling ass.

ROSE reaches the stern rail. Her gnarled fingers wrap over the rail. Her ancient foot steps up on the gunwale. She pushes herself up, leaning forward. Over her shoulder, we see the black water glinting far below.

BROCK AND LIZZY run up behind her.

LIZZY
Grandma, wait!! Don't --

ROSE TURNS her head, looking at them. She turns further, and we see she has something in her hand, something she was about to drop overboard.

It is the "Heart of the Ocean".

Lovett sees his holy grail in her hand and his eyes go wide. Rose keeps it over the railing where she can drop it anytime.

ROSE
Don't come any closer.

LOVETT
You had it the entire time!?

FLASH CUT TO: A SILENT IMAGE OF YOUNG ROSE walking away from Pier 54. The photographers' flashes go off like a battle behind her. She has her hands in her pockets. She stops, feeling something, and pulls out the necklace. She stares at it in amazement.

BACK ON THE KELDYSH, Rose smiles at Brock's incomprehension.

ROSE
The hardest part about being so poor, was being so rich. But every time I thought of selling it, I thought of Cal. And somehow I always got by without his help.

She holds it out over the water. Bodine and a couple of the other guys come up behind Brock, reacting to what is in Rose's hand.

BODINE
Holy shit.

LOVETT
Don't drop it, Rose.

BODINE
(a fierce whisper)
Rush her.

LOVETT
(to Bodine)
It's hers, you schmuck.
(to her)
Look, Rose, I ... I don't know what to say to a woman who tries to jump off the Titanic when it's not sinking, and jumps back onto it when it is... we're not dealing with logic here, I know that... but please... think about this a second.

ROSE
I have. I came all the way here so this could go back where it belongs.

The massive diamond glitters. Brock edges closer and holds out his hand...

BROCK
Just let me hold it in my hand, Rose. Please. Just once.

He comes closer to her. It is reminiscent of Jack slowly moving up to her at the stern of Titanic.

Surprisingly, she calmly places the massive stone in the palm of his hand, while still holding onto the necklace. Brock gazes at the object of his quest. An infinity of cold scalpels glint in its blue depths. It is mesmerizing. It fits in his hand just like he imagined.

BROCK
My God.

His grip tighten on the diamond.

He looks up, meeting her gaze. Her eyes are suddenly infinitely wise and deep.

ROSE
You look for treasure in the wrong place, Mr. Lovett. Only life is priceless, and making each day count.

His fingers relax. He opens them slowly. Gently she slips the diamond out of his hand. He feels it sliding away.

Then, with an impish grin, Rose tosses the necklace over the rail. Bodine gives a strangled cry and rushes to the rail in time to see it hit the water and disappear forever.

BODINE
Aww!! That really sucks, lady!

Brock Lovett goes through ten changes before he settles on a reaction... HE LAUGHS. He laughs until tears come to his eyes. Then he turns to Lizzy.

LOVETT
Would you like to dance?

Lizzy grins at him and nods. Rose smiles. She looks up a the stars.



This scene was rewritten to make Old Rose's moment a private one.
