On New Year's Eve, the luxury ocean liner Poseidon capsizes after being swamped by a rogue wave. The survivors are left to fight for their lives as they attempt to escape the sinking ship.

Robert Ramsey: [to Dylan] You know, there's nothing fair about who lives and dies. You gave Elena a chance. You gave everybody a chance.
Dylan Johns: Does your husband...
Maggie James: oh, does that work much?
Dylan Johns: What?
Maggie James: The tentative mention of a husband I'm supposed to correct, even though you clocked my wedding finger twice already.
Dylan Johns: [to Richard, who has Valentine clinging to his leg as they dangle at the entrance to an elevator shaft, with an elevator above them about to fall] Shake him off!
Richard Nelson: What?
Dylan Johns: If you don't, then we both die!
Richard Nelson: [to Valentine] I'm so sorry.
[shakes him off, Valentine falls to the bottom of the elevator shaft and is impaled]
Conor James: [walks up to Dylan] What's ya doing?
Dylan Johns: Thinking...
[camera shows the back side of Dylan and Conor with the same pose]
Dylan Johns: And you?
Conor James: Thinking, what are YOU thinking about exactly?
Dylan Johns: Well, I figure this door is the way out. Thinking what's behind it
[Conor reaches for the door handle and Dylan stops him]
Dylan Johns: Hey, easy there fire ball. Watch
[splashes the door handle with water and hot steam burst]
Maggie James: Conor! How did you get in there?
Conor James: I don't know but the water's really high!
[the Captain is trying to keep the passengers calm in the dining room after the ship is knocked over]
Captain Michael Bradford: Now we're not sure exactly what happened here, but our best guess is that we were struck by what is known as a rogue wave. They are rare, they are unpredictable, and they are lethal, Now the good news. The instant this ship was struck, emergency GPS locater beacons were launched, so we are at most, several hours from rescue.
[People start panicking, a few people ask if the ship is sinking]
Captain Michael Bradford: Please, do yourselves a favor. Follow the directions of my officers, and stay calm. This room is a giant air bubble holding up the ship. Once these bulkhead doors are sealed, we will be safe from gas leaks, fire, and flooding. We will be saved.
Robert Ramsey: It's a pressure valve. It won't open unless there's tremendous pressure.
Elena: I feel like I know your dad.
Jennifer Ramsey: He was mayor of New York for a while, back when I was a kid.
Elena: Cool.
Jennifer Ramsey: It wasn't.
Jennifer Ramsey: [walks to poker table with Christian] We're going downstairs now.
Robert Ramsey: Ok, have fun... Hey Jen...
Jennifer Ramsey: [looks down at her cleavage] The twins? Dad...
Robert Ramsey: Just one more button.
Jennifer Ramsey: [closes a button of her shirt] Pair of 5's, huh dad?
[Jennifer walks away with Christian]
Dylan Johns: [about his poker game] All in.
Robert Ramsey: [condescendingly] I fold.
Robert Ramsey: Now I know we're on this ship, but technically you two are still under my roof and it makes me uncomfortable... you two... alone.
Jennifer Ramsey: Dad, do you have any idea how big this ship is? Don't you think if we really wanted to we could find somewhere away from you to do that *thing* you're so afraid of us doing?
Richard Nelson: [when Elena passes on her crucifix in flooding shaft] Oy vey, that would be ironic.
Dylan Johns: Happiest time of my life is when I was broke.
Chief Officer Reynolds: Oh my God... NO!
Robert Ramsey: You know, I think there's more money in that pot than my old man made in a year.
Dylan Johns: [after the ship is capsized, to Robert when he asks to go to the ballroom] You suddenly have the urge to go dancing?
Lucky Larry: Hey, who's shooting at us?
Richard Nelson: Thank you, gorgeous!
Marco Valentin: My name is Valentin.
Richard Nelson: I love that name.
[last lines]
Conor James: We're over here!
[first lines]
Christian: When?
Jennifer Ramsey: Mmm. Today.
Christian: Yeah. When today?
Lucky Larry: What the hell did you do to all these people?
Richard Nelson: Hi, I'm Nelson.
Lucky Larry: You just don't get the nickname "Lucky Larry." You gotta be lucky.
Marco Valentin: We've got a problem
Dylan Johns: [looking at a elevator door] Hey, Hey, Map, what's through here?
Marco Valentin: Yeah, that's the uh, the service elevator
Dylan Johns: Do you miss being mayor?
Robert Ramsey: Do you ever win?
Lucky Larry: You know, I forgot. Big hero. Rescued all those women and children from the fires. Got elected. Man of the people. But you're not the boss anymore. Hm? You quit. Couldn't hack it. If I recall correctly, you couldn't even hang onto your wife. Come on. Come on.
[Robert begins to stand up]
Jennifer Ramsey: Dad. Calm down. Let it go. Okay. Please?
Lucky Larry: [mocking] "Daddy, please." Come on.
Robert Ramsey: Hey, man. Hey, you got it. Knock yourself out.
Dylan Johns: It's okay. Go ahead.
Lucky Larry: [pointing to Robert and Dylan] Assholes, both of you.
