Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
Elizabeth: Captain Barbossa , I am here to negotiate the cessation of hostilities against Port Royal .
Barbossa: There are a lot of long words in there, Miss; we're naught but humble pirates. What is it that you want?
Elizabeth: I want you to leave and never come back.
Barbossa: I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request. Means "no".
Elizabeth: Very well. I'll drop it.
[dangles medallion over the sea]
Barbossa: Me holds are burstin' with swag. That bit of shine matters to us? Why?
Elizabeth: It's what you've been searching for. I recognized the ship. I saw it eight years ago on the crossing from England .
Barbossa: Did ya, now?
Elizabeth: Fine. Well, I suppose if it is worthless then there's no point in me keeping it.
[it drops a bit, the pirates lunge forward]
Barbossa: No! Ah.
[chuckles]
Barbossa: You have a name, Missy?
Elizabeth: Elizabeth... Turner. I'm a maid in the Governor's household.
Barbossa: Miss Turner...?
[turns to face the pirates]
Pintel: Bootstrap.
Barbossa: And how does a maid come to own a trinket such as that? Family heirloom, perhaps?
Elizabeth: I didn't steal it, if that's what you mean.
Barbossa: Very well, you hand it over and we'll put your town to our rudder and ne'er return.
Elizabeth: [she hands it over] Our bargain?
[Barbossa walks away from her]
Bo'sun: Still the guns and stow 'em, Signal the men, set the flags and make good to clear port.
Elizabeth: Wait! You have to take me to shore. According to the Code of the Order of the Brethren...
Barbossa: First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement so I must do nothing. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the pirate's code to apply and you're not. And thirdly, the code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Miss Turner .

Pintel: [Pintel and Ragetti burst into the room] We know you're here, Poppet.
Ragetti: Poppet.
Pintel: Come out... and we promise we won't hurt you.
Ragetti: Eh?
Pintel: [smiles at Ragetti] We will find you, Poppet. You've got something of ours, and it calls to us. The gold calls to us.
Ragetti: Gold calls...
Pintel: [opens door of the closet] 'Ello, Poppet.
Elizabeth: Parlay!
Ragetti: What?
Elizabeth: Parlay. I invoke the right of parlay. According to the Code of the brethren, set down by the pirates Morgan and Bartholomew , you have to take me to your Captain.
Pintel: I know the code.
Elizabeth: If an adversary demands parlay you can do them no harm until the parlay is complete.
Ragetti: To blazes with the code.
Pintel: She wants to be taken to the Captain. And she'll go without a fuss. We must honor the Code.

Will Turner: Barbossa, you lying bastard! You swore she'd go free!
Barbossa: Don't dare impugn me honor, boy! I agreed she go free, but it was you who failed to specify when or where. Though it does seem a shame to lose somethin' so fine, don't it, lads?
The Crew: Aye.
Barbossa: So I'll be havin' that dress back before ye go.
Jack Sparrow: I always liked you.
Bo'sun: Grr...
Elizabeth: Goes with your black heart.
Barbossa: Ooh, it's still warm.
The Crew: Off you go! Come on! Get on with it!
Bo'sun: Too long!
Jack Sparrow: I really rather hoped we were past all this.
Barbossa: Jack... Jack! Did you not notice? That be the same island we made you the governor of on our last little trip.
Jack Sparrow: I did notice.
Barbossa: Perhaps you'll conjure up another miraculous escape, but I doubt it. Off you go.
Jack Sparrow: The last time you left me a pistol with one shot.
Barbossa: By the powers, you're right. Where be Jack's pistol? Bring it forward.
Jack Sparrow: Seeing as there's two of us, a gentleman would give us a pair of pistols.
Barbossa: It'll be one pistol as before, and you can be the gentleman and shoot the lady; and starve to death yourself.

Town Clerk: Jack Sparrow.
Jack Sparrow: Captain... Captain Jack Sparrow.
Town Clerk: ...for your willful commission of crime against the crown. Those crimes being numerous in quantity and sinister in nature...
Elizabeth: This is wrong...
Governor Swann: Commodore Norrington is bound by the law, as are we all.
Town Clerk: ...impersonating an officer of the Royal Navy; impersonating a clergy of the Church of England...
Jack Sparrow: Oh yeah, heh heh
Town Clerk: ...arson; kidnapping; perjury; piracy; pilfering; deprivation of a Federal Loyalist. For these crimes you will be hung by the neck until dead. May God have mercy on your soul.

Elizabeth: [after Barbossa has cut her hand slightly] That's it?
Barbossa: Waste not...

Norrington: I, uh, apologize if I seem forward, but I must speak my mind... Ah, this promotion throws into sharp relief that which I have... not yet achieved: a marriage to a fine woman. You have become a fine woman, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: [her corset is choking her] I can't breathe!
Norrington: Yes, I'm... I'm a bit nervous myself.
[Elizabeth faints and topples over the wall]

Elizabeth: [Elizabeth and Jack have just been rescued from the rumrunners' island] But we've got to save Will!
Governor Swann: No! You're safe now. We will return to Port Royal immediately, not go gallivating after pirates!
Elizabeth: Then we comdemn him to death!
Governor Swann: The boy's fate *is* regrettable... but then, so was his decision to engage in piracy.

Elizabeth: This is the fastest ship in the Caribbean.
Anamaria: You can tell them that after they've caught us.

[Elizabeth is being laced into a corset]
Governor Swann: Elizabeth, how's it coming?
Elizabeth: It's difficult to say.
Governor Swann: I'm told it's the latest fashion in London.
Elizabeth: Well, women in London must have learned not to breathe.

Jacoby: I'm gonna teach you the meaning of pain.
Elizabeth: You like pain?
[hits pirate in the head with a pole]
Elizabeth: Try wearing a corset.

Elizabeth: You're despicable.
Jack Sparrow: Sticks and stones, love. I saved your life, you saved mine. We're square.

[to Elizabeth]
Jack Sparrow: Where's the medallion?
Elizabeth: Wretch.
[attempts to slap him]
Jack Sparrow: [grabs her wrist] Ah, where is dear William?
Elizabeth: Will.
Will Turner: Elizabeth.
Jack Sparrow: Monkey!

Elizabeth: Will, how many times must I ask you to call me Elizabeth?
Will Turner: At least once more, Miss Swann, as always.

Elizabeth: I hardly believe in ghost stories anymore, Captain Barbossa.

Norrington: You forget your place, Turner.
Will Turner: It's right here. Between you and Jack.
Elizabeth: As is mine.
Governor Swann: Elizabeth. Lower your weapons. For goodness sake, put them down.
Norrington: So, this is where your heart truly lies, then?
Elizabeth: It is.

[Elizabeth in rowing boat heading toward shore]
Elizabeth: Bloody pirates!
[back aboard the Dauntless, Ragetti sees the Pearl sailing away]
Ragetti: Is it supposed to be doing that?
Pintel: They're stealing our ship.
Ragetti: Bloody pirates!

Elizabeth: Whose side is Jack on?
Will Turner: At the moment?

Jack Sparrow: [Wakes up and sees Elizabeth burning the rum] No! Not good! Stop! Not good! What are you doing? You burned all the food, the shade... the rum.
Elizabeth: Yes, the rum is gone.
Jack Sparrow: Why is the rum gone?
Elizabeth: One: because it is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels. Two: that signal is over a thousand feet high. The entire Royal Navy is out looking for me. Do you really think there is even the slightest chance they won't see it?
Jack Sparrow: But why is the rum gone?
Elizabeth: Just wait captain Sparrow. You give it one hour, maybe two; keep a weather eye out and you will see white sails on that horizon.
[Jack momentarily considers shooting her with his single bullet he has been saving for ten years before stomping off]
Jack Sparrow: "Must have been terrible for you to be trapped here Jack. Must have been terrible for you." Well it bloody is now!
[Seeing Norrington's ship off shore, vindicating her plan]
Jack Sparrow: There'll be no living with her after this.

Elizabeth: I had a dream about you last night.
Will Turner: About me?
Governor Swann: Elizabeth, is that entirely proper for you to c...
Elizabeth: About the day we met. Do you remember?

Jack Sparrow: I love this song. Really bad eggs. Ooh.
[falls]
Jack Sparrow: When I get the Pearl back, I'm gonna teach it to the whole crew, and we'll sing it all the time.
Elizabeth: And you'll be positively the most fearsome pirates in the Spanish Main.
Jack Sparrow: Not just the Spanish Main, love. The entire ocean. The entire wo'ld. Wherever we want to go, we'll go. That's what a ship is, you know. It's not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails, that's what a ship needs but what a ship is... what the Black Pearl really is... is freedom.

[of the British ambushing the pirates]
Elizabeth: No... Wait... Stop! The pirates are undead! They'll all be killed! This is Jack Sparrow's doing!
Lt. Gillette: Don't worry, Miss, he's already been informed of that, a little mermaid flopped up on deck and told him the whole story!
[He laughs as she glares at him]

Jack Sparrow: That's the second time I've had to watch that man sail away with my ship.
Elizabeth: But you were marooned on this island before, weren't you? So we can escape in the same way you did then.
Jack Sparrow: To what point and purpose, young missy? The Black Pearl is gone and unless you have a rudder and a lot of sails hidden in that bodice - unlikely - young Mr. Turner will be dead long before you can reach him.
Elizabeth: But you're Captain Jack Sparrow. You vanished from under the eyes of seven agents of the East India Company. You sacked Nassau Port without even firing a shot. Are you the pirate I've read about or not? How did you escape last time?

Jack Sparrow: Last time... I was here a grand total of three days, all right? Last time, the rum runners used this island as a cache, they came past and I was able to barter passage off. By the look of things, they've long been out of business. Probably have your bloody friend Norrington to thank for that.
Elizabeth: So that's it, then? That's the secret, grand adventure of the infamous Jack Sparrow. You spent three days lying on a beach drinking rum.
Jack Sparrow: Welcome to the Caribbean, love.

[protesting Jack's arrest]
Elizabeth: Commodore, I really must protest. Pirate or not, this man saved my life.
Norrington: One good deed is not enough to redeem a man of a lifetime of wickedness.
Jack Sparrow: Though it seems enough to condemn him.
Norrington: Indeed.

Elizabeth: You're pirates. Hang the code, and hang the rules. They're more like guidelines anyway.

Elizabeth: I'm not entirely sure that I've had enough rum to allow that kind of talk.

[the Black Pearl is gone]
Elizabeth: I'm sorry, Jack.
Jack Sparrow: [wistfully proud] They done what's right by them. Can't expect more than that.

Barbossa: You don't know what this is, do ye?
Elizabeth: It's a pirate medallion...
Barbossa: This is Aztec gold. One of 882 identical pieces they delivered in a stone chest to Cortez himself. Blood money paid to stem the slaughter he wreaked upon them with his armies. But the greed of Cortez was insatiable. So the heathen gods placed upon the gold a terrible curse. Any mortal that removes but a piece from that stone chest shall be punished for eternity.

Elizabeth: [sighs] "... Drink up me hearties, yo ho".
Jack Sparrow: What was that, Elizabeth?
Elizabeth: It's Miss Swann.
Jack Sparrow: Miss Swann.
Elizabeth: Nothing, it's just a song I learned as a child when I thought it would be fun to meet a real pirate.
Jack Sparrow: Let's hear it, then.
Elizabeth: No.
Jack Sparrow: Come on. We've got the time. Let's be having it.
Elizabeth: No. I'd need a lot more to drink.
Jack Sparrow: How much more?

Governor Swann: So, this is the path you've chosen? After all, he is a blacksmith.
Elizabeth: No.
[pause]
Elizabeth: He's a pirate.

Pintel: You'll be dining with the captain. And he requests you wear this.
Elizabeth: Well you may tell the captain that I am disinclined to acquiesce to his request.
Pintel: He said you'd say that. He also said that if that be the case, then you'll be dining with the crew. And you'll be naked.
[looks at him in disgust and hastily grabs dress]
Pintel: Fine.

Jack Sparrow: Is there a problem between us, Miss Swann?
Elizabeth: You were going to tell Barbossa about Will in exchange for a ship.
Jack Sparrow: We could use a ship. But the truth is, I wasn't going to tell Barbossa about Will, as long as I had something to bargain with, which now nobody has, thanks to bloody stupid Will.
Elizabeth: Oh.
Jack Sparrow: [mockingly] Oh.

Elizabeth: You didn't tell them about the curse.
Jack Sparrow: I noticed neither did you. For the same reason, I expect.
Elizabeth: He wouldn't have risked it.
Jack Sparrow: Could have gotten him drunk. Oh, don't get me wrong, love. I admire a person who's willing to do whatever's necessary.
Elizabeth: You're a smart man, Jack. But I don't entirely trust you.
Jack Sparrow: Peas in a pod, darling.

Elizabeth: Lower the anchor on the right side.
Anamaria: [looks stunned]
Elizabeth: On the starboard side!
Will Turner: It has the element of surprise.
Anamaria: You're daft lady. You both are!
Mr. Gibbs: Daft like Jack.
[turns to the crew]
Mr. Gibbs: Lower the starboard anchor!
[crew looks reluctant]
Mr. Gibbs: Do it you gobs! Or it's you we'll load into the cannons.

Elizabeth: [when Pintel and Ragetti finds her hiding in the closet] Parley!
Pintel: [pauses] What?
Elizabeth: Parley. I invoke the right of parley. According to the Code set down by the pirates Morgan and Bartholomew says you have to take me to your captain.
Pintel: I know the Code.
Elizabeth: Then it would state that if one demands parley you can do them no harm until the parley is complete.
Ragetti: Blazes to the Code!
Pintel: She wants to be taken to the captain! And she'll go without a fuss. We must honour the Code.

Elizabeth: I hardly believe in ghost stories, Captain Barbossa.
Barbossa: Aye. That's exactly what I thought when first told of the tale. Buried in the island of the dead that which cannot be found except by those who already knows where it is. Find it, we did. And there be the chest... and inside, be the gold. We took them all! Spent 'em, traded 'em and fritted 'em away, for drink and food and pleasurable company. But the more we gave them away, the more we came to realize. The drink would not satisfy, food turned to ash in our mouths, nor the company in the world would harm or slake our lust. We are cursed men, Miss Turner. Compelled by greed, we were. But now, we are consumed by it.

Barbossa: There is one way we can end our curse. All the scattered pieces of the Aztec gold must be restored and the blood repaid. Thanks to ye, we have the final piece.
Elizabeth: And the blood to be repaid?
Barbossa: That's why there is no sense to be killing you... yet. Apple?
[Elizabeth angrily knocks the apple out of Barbossa's hand and then takes a knife and stabs him in the chest, only for him to be unaffected; he pulls out the knife]
Barbossa: I'm curious: after you kill me, what is it you plan on doing next?

Elizabeth: I hardly believe in ghost stories, Captain Barbossa.
Barbossa: Aye. That's exactly what I thought when we were first told of the tale. Buried in the island of the dead that which cannot be found except by those who already knows where it is. Find it, we did. And there be the chest... and inside, be the gold. We took them all! Spent 'em, traded 'em and fritted 'em away, for drink and food and pleasurable company. But the more we gave them away, the more we came to realize. The drink would not satisfy, food turned to ash in our mouths, nor the company in the world would harm or slake our lust. We are cursed men, Miss Turner. Compelled by greed, we were. But now, we are consumed by it.

Barbossa: Do you not know what this is then?
Elizabeth: It's a Pirate Medallion.
Barbossa: It's a piece of treasure of Isla de Muerta.
Barbossa: Ah, so you don't know as much as you pretend. Back when Cortes was cutting a great bloody swath through the New World, a high priest gave him all the gold they had, with one condition: that he spare the people's lives. Of course Cortes being Cortes, he didn't. He've made a great pirate, that one.
Barbossa: So the priest, with his dying breath, called on the power of the blood of his people, and put on the gold a curse. If anyone took so much as a single piece, as he was compelled by greed, by greed he would be consumed.
Barbossa: Within a day of leaving port for Spain, the treasure ship carrying the gold... something went wrong. The ship run aground, every man aboard dead, save one. He survived long enough to hide the gold ashore. Over time, the dark magic of the curse seeped into the place, making it a cursed island. An island of death. Isla de Muerta.
Elizabeth: That's all very interesting, but I hardly believe in ghost stories any more.
Barbossa: You idiot girl! It's no make believe! My crew and I, we found the gold, and we did more than take one piece, we took it all. Rich men we were and we spent it and traded it and gave it away in exchange for drink and food and pleasant company. But we found out: the drink could not state us, and the food turned to ashes in our mouths, and no amount of pleasant company could ease our torment. We are cursed men, Miss Turner, condemned, to be forever consumed by our own greed. Gold calls to UB, always, and we are driven, always to find more, and add it to the treasure.
Barbossa: There is but one way to remove the curse. All of the scattered pieces of the treasure must be restored in full, and the blood repaid. We've recovered every piece, save for this. And as for the blood... that's what we have you for. And that's why there's no sense in killing you. Yet. Apple?
Barbossa: I'm curious... after killing me, what is it you were planning to do next? Look! Look! The moonlight shows us for what we really are! We are not among the living and so we cannot die...
Barbossa: but neither are we dead! We have all the desires of the living, but cannot satisfy them! Ten years I have been parched of thirst, and unable to quench it! Ten years, I have been starving to death... and haven't died!
Barbossa: And I have not felt anything for ten years... Not the wind on my face, nor the spray of the sea... nor the flesh of a woman...
Barbossa: You'd best start believing in ghost stories, Miss Turner. Because now you're in one.

Young Elizabeth: I think it'd be rather exciting to meet a pirate.
Norrington: Think again, Miss Swann. Vile and dissolute creatures, the lot of them. I intend to see that any man who sails under a pirate flag or wears a pirate brand gets what he deserves: a short drop and a sudden stop.
Mr. Gibbs: [Mr. Gibbs poses as if he's been hanged]
Governor Swann: Lt. Norrington, I appreciate your fervor, but I'm concerned about the effect this subject will have upon my daughter.
Norrington: My apologies, Gov. Swann.
Young Elizabeth: Actually, I find it all fascinating.
Governor Swann: Yes. That's what concerns me.

[first lines]
Young Elizabeth: [singing] Yo, ho, yo, ho/ a pirate's life for me/ Yo, ho, yo, ho/ it's a pirate's life for me/drink up me hearties, yo, ho...
Mr. Gibbs: [surprises her by coming up from behind her] Quiet, missy! Cursed pirates sail these waters. You want to call them down on us?
Norrington: [sharply] Mr. Gibbs, that will do!
Mr. Gibbs: She was singing about pirates. Bad luck to sing about pirates, with us mired in this unnatural fog... mark my words!
Norrington: Consider them marked.
Mr. Gibbs: 'Aye, Lieutenant.
[as he moves off]
Mr. Gibbs: Bad luck to have a woman on board, too. Even a miniature one.

Young Elizabeth: [Will awakes, grabbing her wrist] It's ok. My name's Elizabeth Swann.
Young Will: W-W-Will Turner.
Young Elizabeth: I'm watching over you, Will.

Young Elizabeth: Boy! There's a boy in the water!
[Everyone leans over and sees an unconscious Will]
Norrington: MAN OVERBOARD! Haul him in.
[They pull Will aboard]
Norrington: [sighs] He's still breathing.
Mr. Gibbs: Mary, mother of God!
[Everyone looks in the distance, where a destroyed British ship is in flames]


Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007)
Will Turner: You left Jack to the kraken.
Elizabeth Swann: He's rescued now, it's done with.
[pause]
Elizabeth Swann: Will, I had no choice.
Will Turner: You chose not to tell me.
Elizabeth Swann: I couldn't. It wasn't your burden to bear.
Will Turner: But I did bear it, didn't I? I just didn't know what it was. I thought...
Elizabeth Swann: You thought I loved him.
[Elizabeth tries to push past Will]
Will Turner: [Will blocks her exit and pushes her back against the pillar of the cabin] If you make your choices alone... how can I trust you?
Elizabeth Swann: [pause] You can't.

Will Turner: Barbossa, a heading!
Barbossa: Aye... we're good and lost now.
Elizabeth Swann: Lost?
Barbossa: For sure, you have to be lost to find a place that can't be found, elseways everyone would know where it was.
Ragetti: We're gaining speed.
Barbossa: Aye!
Will Turner: To starboard stations! All hands to stations!
Barbossa: Nay, belay that. Let her run straight and true!
Ragetti: [staring] Blimey.
[the rest of the crew follow his gaze, and see that they are headed towards a massive waterfall]
Elizabeth Swann: [to Barbossa] You've doomed us all!
Barbossa: Now don't be so unkind. You may not survive to pass this way again, and these be the last friendly words you'll hear.

Elizabeth Swann: It's too late to earn my forgiveness.

Captain Chevalle: There has not been a king since the first brethren court, and that is not likely to change!
Captain Teague: Not likely.
Elizabeth Swann: Why not?
Gibbs: Because the pirate king is elected by popular vote...
Barbossa: ...and each pirate only votes for himself
Jack Sparrow: I call for a vote.
[Barbossa rolls his eyes as Captain Teague starts playing the guitar]
Captain Ammand: I vote for Ammand, the Corsair!
Captain Chevalle: Captain Chevalle, the penniless Frenchman!
Mistress Ching: Mistress Ching!
Captain Jocard: Gentleman Jocard.
Elizabeth Swann: Elizabeth Swann.
Barbossa: Barbossa.
Captain Vallenueva: Villanueva!
[Captain Teague stops playing his guitar]
Jack Sparrow: Elizabeth Swann.
[the court begins to yell]
Elizabeth Swann: What?
Jack Sparrow: I know. Curious, isn't it?

Barbossa: I trust you to know your place in front of Captain Sao Feng.
Elizabeth Swann: Is he that terrifying?
Barbossa: He's a lot like meself, but absent me merciful nature and sense of fair play.

Barbossa: I find meself in need of a ship; and a crew.
Captain Sao Feng: [pretending to think] Ah... you know, it is a strange coincidence...
Elizabeth Swann: Because you happen to have a ship and a crew you don't need?

Captain Jocard: Who is this traitor?
Barbossa: Not likely one among us.
Elizabeth Swann: Where's Will?
Jack Sparrow: Not among us.

Gibbs: Jack! The world needs you back something fierce!
Will Turner: Cutler Beckett has the heart of Davy Jones, he controls the Flying Dutchman.
Elizabeth Swann: He's taking over the sea!
Tia Dalma: The song has already been sung! The brethren court is called!
Jack Sparrow: I leave you people alone for just a minute and look what happens, everything's gone to pot!

Elizabeth Swann: [of the Pirate Lords and their crews fighting each other] This is madness.
Jack Sparrow: This is politics.

Elizabeth Swann: [after she sees her father in a boat sailing by the Black Pearl in Davy Jones's Locker] That's my father, we've made it back! Father! Father! Look here!
Jack Sparrow: [solemnly] Elizabeth, we're not back.
[Elizabeth's smile starts to fade]

Elizabeth Swann: [Norrington is helping Elizabeth to escape] What are you doing?
Norrington: Choosing a side.

Will Turner: [during the final battle] Will you marry me?
Elizabeth Swann: I don't think now's the best time!
Will Turner: Now may be the only time! I love you. I've made my choice. What's yours?
Elizabeth Swann: Barbossa! Marry us!
Barbossa: [swordfighting] I'm a little busy at the moment!

Captain Sao Feng: All men are drawn to the sea, perilous though it may be.
Elizabeth Swann: And some men offer desire as justification for their crimes.
Captain Sao Feng: I offer simply my desire.
Elizabeth Swann: And in return?
Captain Sao Feng: I would have your gifts. Should you choose to give them.
Elizabeth Swann: Oh... and if I should choose not?
Captain Sao Feng: Then I will take your fury.

Elizabeth Swann: Pretty speech from a captor, but words whispered through prison bars lose their charm.

Elizabeth Swann: You will listen to me! LISTEN! The other ships will still be looking to us, to the Black Pearl, to lead, and what will they see? Frightened bilgerats aboard a derelict ship? No, no they will see free men and freedom! And what the enemy will see, they will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

Elizabeth Swann: I propose an exchange. Will leaves with us. And you can take Jack.
Will Turner: Done.
Jack Sparrow: Undone.
Lord Cutler Beckett: Done.
Barbossa: [to Elizabeth] Jack's one of the nine pirate lords. You have no right!
Elizabeth Swann: [with defiance] King!

Tai Huang: A dangerous song to be singing for anyone ignorant of its meaning. Particularly a woman... particularly a woman alone...
Captain Barbossa: What makes you think she's alone?
[enter Barbossa down the stairs]
Tai Huang: You protect her?
Elizabeth Swann: [puts a knife to Tai Huang's throat] And what makes you think I need protecting?
Captain Barbossa: [to Tai Huang] Your master's expecting us, and an unexpected death'd cast a slight pall on our meeting.
[Elizabeth takes the hint and lets go of Tai Huang]

Elizabeth Swann: Sao Feng is dead. He fell to the Flying Dutchman.
Mistress Ching: The plagued ship?
Jack Sparrow: He made you captain? They're giving the bloody title away now.

Elizabeth Swann: [the Pearl is heading towards the maelstrom] Captain Barbossa! We need you at the helm!
Barbossa: [turns to her] Aye, that be true!

Elizabeth Swann: We've come to rescue you.
Jack Sparrow: Have you, now? It's very kind of you. But it would seem that as I possess a ship, and you don't... you're the ones in need of rescuing, and I'm not sure that I'm in the mood.

Lord Cutler Beckett: [during parlay] Advise your brethren. You can fight, and all of you will die... or you can not fight, in which case only most of you will die.
Elizabeth Swann: You murdered my father.
Lord Cutler Beckett: He chose his own fate.
Elizabeth Swann: And you have chosen yours. We will fight. And you will die.

[Elizabeth sees her father in a boat that headed towards the land of the dead and is trying to get off the ship to him]
Tia Dalma: She must not leave the ship!
[she and most of the crew members rush towards her to stop her]
Elizabeth Swann: Father!
Governor Swann: I'll give your love to your mother, shall I?
Elizabeth Swann: Father!
[Will grabs her and holds onto her while she cries]
Will Turner: [to Tia] Is there a way?
Tia Dalma: [shakes her head] Him at peace.

Governor Swann: Elizabeth! Are you dead?
Elizabeth Swann: [shakes her head, whispers] No, no.
Governor Swann: I think I am.

Davy Jones: [upon seeing Elizabeth on the ship] Harridan! You'll see no mercy from me!
Elizabeth Swann: That's why I brought this.
[drawing her sword to fight]
Davy Jones: [Will stabs Davy Jones with a sword from behind] Missed! Did you forget, I'm a heartless wretch!
Davy Jones: [seeing Will looking at Elizabeth] Ah, love; a dreadful bond, and yet, so easily severed. Tell me, William Turner: do you fear death?
Jack Sparrow: Do you?
Davy Jones: [Turns to see Jack holding the heart]
Jack Sparrow: Heady tonic, holding life and death in the palm of one's hand.
Davy Jones: [sneering] You've a cruel mind, Jack Sparrow.
Jack Sparrow: Cruel is a matter of perspective.

Will Turner: [during the final battle] Elizabeth Swann, do you take me to be your husband?
Elizabeth Swann: I do.
Will Turner: Great!
[more fighting]
Elizabeth Swann: Will Turner, do you take me to be your wife, in sickness and in health, with health being less likely?
Will Turner: I do.
[more fighting]
Barbossa: As Captain, I now pronounce you...
[interrupted by fighting]
Barbossa: You may kiss...
[more fighting]
Barbossa: ...You may kiss...
[more fighting]
Barbossa: ...JUST KISS!

Jack Sparrow: I'm taking my ship and going the other way...
Elizabeth Swann: The Brethren Court is a council of pirates, and you're a pirate.
Will Turner: Win or not, Jack, you're not running away!
[Swann and Turner point their guns at Sparrow]

Elizabeth Swann: Done.
Will Turner: What? NOT DONE!
Elizabeth Swann: You got us into this mess - if this is what it takes to get us out of it, then done!

Will Turner: I need the Pearl to free my father. That's the only reason I came on this voyage.
Elizabeth Swann: You never told me any of this!
Will Turner: [pointedly] It was my burden to bear...

Tai Huang: What did he say?
Elizabeth Swann: He made me Captain...
Tai Huang: [is disgusted, leaves]
Tai Huang: [later, they are captured by Mercer's men]
[to Elizabeth]
Tai Huang: You are NOT my Captain!
[Davy Jones boards the ship and surveys the crew; Tai Huang is visibly terrified]
Davy Jones: Who among you do you name as Captain?
Tai Huang: [pointing at Elizabeth] Captain, her!

Elizabeth Swann: Will, I've been aboard the Dutchman. I understand the burden you bear, but I fear that cause is lost.
Will Turner: No cause is lost if there is but one fool left to fight for it.

[in the Dutchman's brig, Elizabeth searches for Will's father]
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: [embedded in the wall of the Dutchman] You know my name...
Elizabeth Swann: Yes. I know your son...
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: My son... William!
[He tears himself out of the wall, to Elizabeth's fright]
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: [laughing with joy] He's alive! Will's alive! He survived the Kraken, me boy, and he's sent you to tell me he's coming to save me! God's wounds, he's on his way!
Elizabeth Swann: Yes, Will is alive. And he wants to help you.
[Bootstrap's smile fades]
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: He can't help me. He won't come.
[points a finger at Elizabeth]
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: I know you. He spoke of you. He won't save me, he can't come because of you!
Elizabeth Swann: Because of ME?
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: You're Elizabeth. He who stabs the heart of the Captain must take over as Captain. Dutchman must always have a captain. And if he saves me, he loses you. He won't pick me - I wouldn't pick me! Tell him not to come. Tell him to stay away. Tell him it's too late. I'm part of the ship... part of the ship, part of the crew...
[climbs back into the ship]
Elizabeth Swann: Bootstrap...
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: [his memory apparently wiped] You know my name... my son, he's coming to save me. You wait and see...

Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann, Barbossa, Gibbs: FIRE!

Gibbs: Your carriage waits, my lady! The oars are inside.
[Elizabeth bids her pirate friends farewell]
Ragetti: 'Bye, poppet.
Barbossa: MRS. Turner...
Elizabeth Swann: Jack... it would never have worked between us.
Jack Sparrow: Keep telling yourself that, darling.
[Elizabeth steps forward to kiss Jack]
Jack Sparrow: Once was quite enough!
Elizabeth Swann: Thank you.

Elizabeth Swann: Oh, will you ever forgive me?
Jack Sparrow: No.


Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006)
Elizabeth Swann: [as Will, Jack, and Norrington fight] Stop it! Will!
Will Turner: Guard the chest!
Elizabeth Swann: [indignantly] No! This is barbaric! This is no way for grown men to settle... oh, fine! Let's just haul out our swords and start banging away at each other! That will solve everything! I've had it! I've had it with wobbly-legged, rum-soaked pirates!
[starts throwing rocks at them]
Elizabeth Swann: Enough! This is madness!
[faking]
Elizabeth Swann: Oh! Oh, the heat!
[pretends to faint, then opens one eye to see that none of them have noticed]

Lord Cutler Beckett: No doubt you've discovered that loyalty is no longer the currency of the realm, as your father believes.
Elizabeth Swann: Then what is?
Lord Cutler Beckett: I'm afraid currency is the currency of the realm.
Elizabeth Swann: I expect, then, that we can come to some sort of understanding. I'm here to negotiate.
Lord Cutler Beckett: I'm listening.
[Elizabeth pulls out a gun]
Lord Cutler Beckett: I'm listening intently.

Jack Sparrow: [with his back to Elizabeth, thinking that she is a man] Come to join my crew, lad? Welcome aboard!
Elizabeth Swann: I'm here to find the man I love.
Jack Sparrow: [startled] I'm deeply flattered, son, but my first and only love is the sea.
Elizabeth Swann: Meaning William Turner, Captain Sparrow.
Jack Sparrow: [turning around] Elizabeth!
[to Gibbs]
Jack Sparrow: Hide the rum.

Jack Sparrow: We are very much alike, you and I, I and you... us.
Elizabeth Swann: Oh. Except for a sense of honor and decency and a moral center. And personal hygiene.
Jack Sparrow: [sniffs his armpit and looks back] Trifles.

Norrington: Come on, then! Who wants some? Form an orderly line, I'll have you all one by one. Come on, who's first?
Elizabeth Swann: [Grabs bottle from Norrington's hand and smashes it over his head] I just wanted the pleasure of doing that myself!

Elizabeth Swann: Jack, the letters, give them back.
Jack Sparrow: No. Persuade me.
Elizabeth Swann: You do know Will taught me how to handle a sword.
Jack Sparrow: As I said, persuade me.

Elizabeth Swann: We're not getting out of this.
Norrington: Not with the chest. Into the boat.
[takes chest]
Elizabeth Swann: You're mad.
Norrington: Don't wait for me.
[runs away from the longboat with the chest]
Jack Sparrow: Uh, I say we respect his final wish.

Tia Dalma: The Pearl's gone, along with its captain.
Gibbs: And already the world seems a little less bright. He fooled us all, right to the end. But I guess that honest streak finally won out. To Jack Sparrow.
Ragetti: Never another like Captain Jack.
Pintel: He was a gentleman of fortune, he was.
Elizabeth Swann: He was a good man.
Will Turner: If there was anything could be done to bring him back...
Tia Dalma: Would you do it? What would any of you do? Would you sail to the ends of the earth and back to fetch back witty Jack, and him precious Pearl?
Gibbs, Ragetti, Pintel: Aye!
Elizabeth Swann: Yes.
Tia Dalma: All right. But if you will brave the weird and haunted shores at world's end, then you will need a captain who knows those waters.
Barbossa: [enters] So tell me, what's become of my ship?

Lord Cutler Beckett: I care not for cursed Aztec gold. My desires are not so provincial. There's more than one chest of value in these waters. So perhaps you may wish to enhance your offer.
Elizabeth Swann: [cocks her gun] Consider in your calculations that you robbed me of my wedding night.

Elizabeth Swann: Why doesn't your compass work?
Jack Sparrow: ...My compass works fine.

Elizabeth Swann: Thank you, Jack.
Jack Sparrow: We're not free yet, love.
Elizabeth Swann: You came back. I always knew you were a good man.
[kisses him to distract him, then handcuffs him to the mast]
Elizabeth Swann: It's after you, not the ship. It's not us. This is the only way, don't you see?
[unconvincingly]
Elizabeth Swann: I'm not sorry.
Jack Sparrow: [almost understandingly] Pirate.

Elizabeth Swann: Oh fine! Let's just haul out our swords and start banging away at each other! That will solve everything!

[first lines]
Elizabeth Swann: Will! Why is this happening?
Will Turner: I don't know. You look beautiful.
Elizabeth Swann: I think it's bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the wedding.

Elizabeth Swann: James Norrington, what has the world done to you?

Elizabeth Swann: It's real!
Norrington: You actually were telling the truth.
Jack Sparrow: I do that quite a lot. Yet people are always surprised.
Will Turner: With good reason.

Elizabeth Swann: I've had it! I've had it with wobbly-legged, rum-soaked PIRATES!

Elizabeth Swann: You'll have the chance to do something... something courageous. And when you do, you'll discover something. That you're a good man.

Will Turner: And then I intend to return here, to marry you.
Elizabeth Swann: Properly?
Will Turner: Eagerly, if you'll still have me.
Elizabeth Swann: If it weren't for these bars, I'd have you already.
[Governor Swann trips up in the background, breaking a candlestick off the wall in the process]
Elizabeth Swann: I'll wait for you.
Will Turner: Keep a weather eye on the horizon.

Lord Cutler Beckett: Perhaps you remember a certain pirate named Jack Sparrow.
Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann: *Captain!*
Elizabeth Swann: *Captain* Jack Sparrow.

Elizabeth Swann: There will come a time when you have a chance to do the right thing.
Jack Sparrow: I love those moments. I like to wave at them as they pass by.

Will Turner: Lord Beckett, in the category of questions not answered...
Elizabeth Swann: We are under the jurisdiction of the King's Governor of Port Royal, and you *will* tell us what we are charged with!

Governor Weatherby Swann: I've arranged passage to England. The captain is a friend of mine.
Elizabeth Swann: No! Will's got to find Jack!
Governor Weatherby Swann: We cannot count on William Turner.
Elizabeth Swann: He's a better man then you give him credit for.
Governor Weatherby Swann: This is no time for innocence! Beckett has offered one pardon only and that is promised to Jack Sparrow. Even if Will succeeds. Do not ask me to endure the sight of my daughter walking to the gallows. Perhaps I can ensure a fair trail for Will if he returns.
Elizabeth Swann: A fair trial ends in a hanging.
Governor Weatherby Swann: Then there is nothing left for you here.

Norrington: There was a time when I would have given anything for you to look like that while thinking about me.
Elizabeth Swann: I don't know what you mean.
Norrington: I think you do.
Elizabeth Swann: Oh, don't be absurd, I trust him, that's all.

[seeing Jack rowing away from the Pearl]
Elizabeth Swann: Oh, you coward.


Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007) (VG)
Elizabeth Swann: Think you can defeat me? Think again!
Captain Sao Feng: For your last fight you challenge Sao Feng? So be it.

[repeated line]
Elizabeth Swann: I hope you like pain.

[repeated line, when doing sneak attack]
Elizabeth Swann: You were warned.


Kingdom Hearts II (2005) (VG)
Elizabeth Swann: Ahoy mateys!
Capt. Jack Sparrow: Ridiculous imitation, but I'm flattered.


Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow (2006) (VG)
Elizabeth Swann: [after Jack finds the treasure chest on Rum Island] Well, we're no less marooned on this island than before, Jack.
Jack Sparrow: Ah! But now we're marooned AND rich!
[He opens the chest, and it blows him and Elizabeth backwards, while the chest sinks into the sand. Sand Creatures then pop up out of the sand]
Jack Sparrow: Just once, I'd like to find a treasure chest that's not had a curse laid upon it! JUST ONCE!
