These two were supposedly based on a real couple, who said they wouldn’t board a life boat as long as there were younger people still aboard the ship. They both went below deck, presumably to their room, and that’s the last time they were seen.

;________________;

Isador & Ida Straus
The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the disaster. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him.
When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall.
A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, it’s inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.”

When filming Fred’s death, everyone was crying tears as their fake son, brother, friend died. But as Oliver (George) looked down at his own real brother and real best friend, he started choking on his sobs as he feared, ‘What if this was real?. After the director called cut, and James (Fred) sat up, Oliver threw his arms around him and cried into James’ shoulder. Everyone stepped away to give them a moment. Through the sobs, however, everyone was able to catch a simple “I love you, James!” James puts his arm around Oliver and squeezed him in a hug, “Good God, man. I’m not really dead! But I love you too.” Oliver sniffled, “I know…I just thought…what if you were?” James stayed quiet for a few moments, before tears fell from his eyes too, imagining what that must feel like. In that moment, the two brothers were never closer. ” I love you, Oliver,” James cried, hugging Oliver tightly to him. ” I love you too, James,” Oliver whimpered back, returning his tight embrace.

When the children first meet Count Olaf and Jim Carrey says, “Wait, give me the line again,” was not actually in the script, it was Carrey staying in character and wanting to try it again, but they kept the cameras rolling and felt it worked the way it happened.
