In the 1975 movie "Jaws", a scene in which two kids pretend to be a shark, by snorkling beneath a "cardboard fin", ends with them being discovered and surrounded by men in boats with rifles.

At this point, one of the two children points to the other and says:

  • "He made me do it! He ..." (... WHAT DOES HE SAY HERE?)

I'm trying to find out what that kid says at this point.

    I think that he just repeats the line of "He made me do it" Mar 22, 2017 at 14:38
  • No help in the script; One youngster looks up and is greeted by: YOUNGSTER'S POINT OF VIEW Twenty rifles and shotguns pointed directly at him. Surrounding him on three sides. Some of the policemen start to lower their guns -- struck dumb. CLOSE - YOUNGSTER his only defense, he begins to cry -- and feebly raises his hands in unconditional surrender.

He says

"He made me do it. He talked me into it."

  • To me it sounds like, "He made me do it; he told me to do it."

    Can you believe I've seen that movie in the region of 300 times and still couldn't figure it out? That's it. My life is sorted now. I can sleep again.
