It was Gardner's boat all chewed up.
I helped tow it. Y ou should've seen it.

Where is that tooth?
Did you see it, Brody?

I didn't see it.
- He dropped it on the way in.
- I had an accident.

And what did you say
the name of this shark is?

It's a carcharodon carcharias.
It's a great white.

Y ou don't have the tooth?
We depend on the summer people
for our lives...

y ou are not gonna have a summer
unless you deal with this problem.

We have to close the beaches,
and hire somebody to kill the shark!

We have to tell the Coast Guard.
Y ou'll have to contact
the Shark Research Panel.

Y ou'll have to ring this entire harbor.
I don't think either one of you
are familiar with our problems.

I know that you are going to ignore...
...this problem until it swims up
and bites you on the ass!

Wait a second.
There are two ways to deal with this.

Y ou're either gonna kill this animal,
or cut off it's food supply.

We have to close the beaches.
Sick vandalism.
That is a deliberate mutilation
of a public service message.

I want those little paint-happy
bastards caught...

...and hung up by their Buster-Browns.
- That's it. Goodbye.

I won't waste my time arguing with a man
who's lining up to be a hot lunch.

Don't do this.
What we are dealing with here,
is a perfect engine, an eating machine.

It's really a miracle of evolution.
All this machine does is swim...

...and eat, and make little sharks.
And that's all.

Now, why don't you take a long,
close look at this sign.

- Those proportions are correct.
- Y ou'd love to prove that.

Get your name
into the National Geographic.

Larry, if we make an effort today,
we might be able to save August.

August? For Christ sake,
tomorrow's the Fourth of July.
