** It's even more hilarious once you realize that line was completely ad-libbed.

** It's even more hilarious once you realize that line was completely ad-libbed. Both the book author and the credited screenwriter expressed jealousy at Roy Scheider just making that up on the spot.

* In one scene, Brody is on Hooper's boat, drunkenly ranting about why he moved from New York to Amity. Hooper's barely listening:
-->'''Hooper:''' (mouth full) "Fascinating. Want a pretzel?"

* After Hooper has determined they caught the wrong shark, he immediately decides to go out looking for the real one. Brody isn't pleased at the prospect:
-->'''Brody:''' "On the water?!"
-->'''Hooper:''' [[DeadpanSnarker "Well, if we're looking for a shark we're not gonna find it on the land."]]
-->'''Brody:''' "Yeah, but I'm not drunk enough to go out on a boat!"
-->'''Hooper:''' "Yes, you are!"

** And it's the red wine, even though they're having fish.

** And it's the red wine, even though they're having fish. And, considering Hooper's wealth and pained reaction, it was probably a pretty good vintage.

'''Hooper:''' All right, all right. Hey, I don't need this... I don't need this working-class-hero crap.

* Might just be a case of the casting not matching the script, but I always found it amusing how everyone treats Hooper like he's a fresh out of college kid. Dude has gray in his beard.
** Dreyfuss was 27 when the film was released, which isn't beyond college age depending on what degree is being pursued, especially in the sciences. Most Ph.D students don't finish their degrees until their late-20s, and even that can be prolonged depending on the research. Also, compared to Shaw and Scheider, he was relatively young. It is true, however, that this was a case of casting not matching the script as the script was adjusted for Dreyfuss.
*** And people can start to go grey in even their late teens.

* When the shark makes it's first appearance while the trio are out on the ''Orca'', Brody's reaction is to freak out, and Quint's is to prepare to harpoon it. ''Hooper's'' reaction is to excitedly grab his camera and start snapping photos, while demanding that Brody get closer to the shark in order to give it a reference point for size. [[Understatement Brody... is not pleased with this plan.]]
--> '''Brody:''' [[ScrewThisI'mOutOfHere Size my ass!]]
