Jaws 2[edit | edit source]

Marge was at the beginning of the film, getting off of a boat with Gary Springer, and later participates in a water balloon fight, throwing a water balloon at Bob.

After seeing Sean Brody accidentally knock over a bucket, she sneaks up on him and invites him to join her in her boat.

She is very playful and loving towards Sean when they first meet, but when they and the rest of the kids are attacked by the Jaws Marge takes it upon herself to protect Sean, and she does so with great courage and responsibility.

Later, her boat is knocked overboard by the shark, and both Marge and Sean fall into the water. Once it had been capsized, Marge got onto the boat, lifting Sean onto it. The shark rammed it violently, probably marking that he would kill Marge next time he attacked.

Death[edit | edit source]

After destroying a helicopter sent to help them and then killing off the pilot, the shark rams the boat armada, sending Bob and Sean into the water. Marge looks for Sean, finally spotting him, bobbing up and down in the water. Marge jumps into the water, swimming after Sean.

After Marge grabs Sean and swims back to the boat with him when they reach an overturned sailboat and Sean climbs the ropes on the boat, reaching the top safely. Before Sean makes it on to the boat when he is using the rope to climb up Marge Sean to "Hury!". The shark decides to leave for a few seconds and Marge desperately tries to get back onto the boat. Panicking, she says to Sean, "Will you pull me? I can't get up!" She manages to partially, but slides back into the water. Sean grabs her gloved hand, trying in vain to pull her up.

The shark immediately approaches into view, and breaches, devouring Marge. This is viewed entirely from behind, and she is dragged to her death in a pool of blood. Sean gives a terrified scream as the shark disappears into the water with Marge, while Jackie Peters, another teenager, screams in horror nearby.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Marge is played by former Kodak model Martha Swatek.
  • In early storyboards, the helicopter pilot would escape from the shark and save Marge from being bitten by the shark. This would imply that both the pilot and Marge would stay alive. However, this was not done, possibly for production reasons.
