Interestingly enough, when Spielberg was looking for a dramatic counterpoint for the film, i.e. a way to make Quint a more sympathetic character, he telephoned (long time Oliver Stone collaborator) John Milius for advice. Milius more or less dictated the USS Indianapolis (CA-35) scene down the telephone line. Which probably explains why all the characters are drunk in that scene.Hugh Janblack wrote:...just got doen watchingthe best scene - Jaws - where Quin tells the story of the Indinapolis...

Started off with "Withnail & I" (Richard E Grant's finest hour, wine, sherry, lighter fluid) and then segued into "The Party" (Peter Sellers, 1968, Martinis, chicken, hairpieces).
Strangebrew, Barfly, Cocktail (Yes) all on schedule for forthcoming weeks.
V. cheap way of getting drunk - invite all your friends round under the thinly veiled pretense of having a civilised movie-watching session. It will, inevitably, degenerate into overflowing ashtrays, uneaten plates of chips and dips left to go soggy and flyblown, and various people disappearing for the rainbow yawn.
