In the movie JAWS, when Quint interrupts the meeting to make his bid on catching and killing the shark, he is eating something. I couldn't quite make out what it is. If anyone knows, please help.
Beyond being just a trivia question (and off-topic), what he's eating could give a little peak into his character's psychology, thus improving my enjoyment of the film. He obviously feels the need to eat it in front of people during a delicate and troubling time.
Granted, maybe it's nothing, and he just eats whatever is on hand whenever he's hungry, much like Bruce (the shark) did.
EDIT : Maybe it's an apple, like Napoleon suggests, but it seems cut into an even width piece as opposed to the crescent-shaped wedge (think orange or grapefruit pieces) apples are normally cut into. Also we only see him eating this one loud and crispy piece. No knife or apple core are to be seen, and Quint doesn't seem too much like a "cut up some fruit, put it in a baggy to take to the meeting" kind of guy.
