Quint is the bawdy, salty sea dog that the business people of Amity Island hire to rid them of the shark problem, which is having a detrimental effect on their businesses.
Out in the middle of the ocean, Quint, Hooper and Brody are having a hell of a time trying to catch this shark, which has bashed the boat so that it is slowly sinking and caused salt water to flood the engine.
The boat is half sunk when Quint sees the familiar dorsal fin heading straight for it. The shark emerges from the water and lands on the back of the boat (called the Orca) and flaps around biting. The sheer weight of this monster on the back of the Orca tilts the boat precariously and Quint slips on the wet boards and slides towards the waiting jaws.
The prosthetic shark tries to mate with the Orca
He manages to fight off the gaping maw for a moment, but all too quickly his legs end up in the shark's mouth, which bites down hard causing Quint to cough blood. One final bite ends his life and the shark drifts off into the sea, with Quint's corpse in its mouth.
This is the Quint-essential way to die in a shark film
