Okay, y'all, I'm stuck on Titanic and I need help. If I were to transcribe the noise that a dolphin makes, as if it were saying something, what would that look like? I've seen people do it before, and I just can't remember what it looked like. I want it to be onomatopoeic enough that people will read it and go, "Yeah, that's totally what a dolphin sounds like." Any suggestions?




ETA: Let me give y'all some context as to why it has to be specific sounds:

JACK: Ma’am, seriously, I’m begging you. Don’t jump, because I’m gonna have to jump in after you.

ROSE: But—that would kill you.

JACK: See, you’d think so, wouldn’t you? Actually, you’d probably just snap your spine in the fall, and then be left floating in the subfreezing water while vengeful dolphins gnaw your toes.

VENGEFUL DOLPHINS [shaking bloody flippers]: EEEE! EEEEEHEEEH! CLICK CLICK CLICK!



[Vengeful dolphins are from earlier in the parody, it'll make sense when you get there.]
