Storyline

In this - by out-of-character stepping Phil Hartman introduced - Titanic (1997) spoof, Dave is the captain of the ship who warns the crew for icebergs but gets jeered. Nevertheless, he tells sailor Matthew to be on the look-out for icebergs. Bill is a bourgeois passenger who doesn't want the riff-raff from third class to be on the same deck as the elite. Joe is the mechanic and Lisa is the beautiful young, stylish woman who's wooed by Walt. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Goofs

Even though Dave tells Mr. James the ship is going at 15 knots (a little over 17 MPH), when Dave goes into his office you can see the ocean out of his window and the ship isn't moving at all, betraying the fact photographs of the ocean were used on the set rather than video. See more »

Quotes

Lisa Miller: Like love?
Dave: No, coffee. Speaking of which, do you have any?
Lisa Miller: Love?
Dave: No, coffee.
Lisa Miller: No, I don't. Sorry.
Dave: Well, then what's the point?
