It's only once in a lifetime you get to recreate "Titanic." The day I left "Titanic" Jim said to me, "It's been a hell of a trip." Believe me, it was. Jim, Jon, Rae, and my wife, thank you for your support during the whole production. Finally, I am only as good as the crew around me. Ladies and gentlemen, you were the best. Thank you.
I would just like to thank two of my chief prop supports, Richard and Barry. Without them I think I would have fallen or drowned, I don't know which. Thank you. And thank you, Jim.
