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.
Jack Sparrow: [holds up jar of dirt] Oi! Fishface! Lose something? Eh? Scungilli!
[falls down stairs, holds up jar again]
Jack Sparrow: Got it! Come to negotiate, eh? Have you, you slimy git? Look what I got.
Jack Sparrow: [sing-song] I got a jar of dirt, I got a jar of dirt, and guess what's inside it!
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!
Jack Sparrow: Hide the rum.
Tia Dalma: Land is where you are safe, Jack Sparrow, and so you will carry land with you.
Jack Sparrow: Dirt. This is a jar of dirt.
Tia Dalma: Yes.
Jack Sparrow: ...Is the jar of dirt going to help?
Tia Dalma: If you don't want it, give it back.
Jack Sparrow: [greedily] No!
Tia Dalma: Then it helps.
Jack Sparrow: [empties bottle of rum] Why is the rum always gone?
Jack Sparrow: [stands up and staggers drunkenly] Oh... that's why.
Will Turner: You want me to find this?
Jack Sparrow: No. You want you to find this, because the finding of this finds you incapacitorially finding and or locating in your discovering the detecting of a way to save your dolly belle, ol' what's-her-face. Savvy?
Will Turner: This is going to save Elizabeth?
Jack Sparrow: How much do you know about Davy Jones?
Will Turner: Not much.
Jack Sparrow: Yeah, it's going to save Elizabeth.
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!
Elizabeth Swann: Oh! Oh, the heat!
[pretends to faint, then opens one eye to see that none of them have noticed]
Jack Sparrow: My tremendous intuitive sense of the female creature informs me that you are troubled.
Jack Sparrow: [to cannibals] *Alas*, my children! This is the day you shall always remember as the day that you almost...
[gets splashed by a wave]
Jack Sparrow: ...Captain Jack Sparrow.
Jack Sparrow: How did you get here?
Will Turner: Sea turtles, mate. A pair of them strapped to my feet.
Jack Sparrow: Not so easy, is it?
Will Turner: What about Jack? I won't leave without him!
[Jack runs in followed by hundreds of angry cannibals]
Will Turner: Never mind! Let's go!
Gibbs: So, we're setting out to find whatever this key unlocks?
Jack Sparrow: No. If we don't have the key, we can't open whatever we don't have that it unlocks. So what purpose would be served in finding whatever need be unlocked, which we don't have, without first having found the key what unlocks it?
Gibbs: So, we're setting out to find this key?
Jack Sparrow: Now you're not making any sense at all.
Jack Sparrow: You look bloody awful, what are you doing here?
Norrington: You hired me. I can't help it if your standards are lax.
Jack Sparrow: [immaturely] You smell funny.
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.
Davey Jones: Do you fear... death? Do you fear that dark abyss? All your deeds laid bare, all your sins punished?
Jack Sparrow: Is this a dream?
Jack Sparrow: I thought not. If it were, there'd be rum.
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: [hands him a bottle of rum]
Gibbs: Let's put some distance between us and this island and head out to open sea!
Jack Sparrow: Yes to the first, yes to the second, but only insofar as we keep to the shallows as much as possible.
Gibbs: That seems a bit contradictory, Captain.
Jack Sparrow: I have every faith in your reconciliatory navigational skills, Mr. Gibbs, now where is that monkey, I want to shoot something!
Davey Jones: You are neither dead nor dying. What is your purpose here?
Will Turner: [quickly] Jack Sparrow sent me to settle his debt.
Davey Jones: What is your purpose here?
Will Turner: Jack Sparrow? Sent me to settle his debt?
Davey Jones: [laughs] Did he, now? I'm sorely tempted to accept that offer.
Jack Sparrow: So what's your plan, then?
Will Turner: I row over, search the ship until I find your bloody key.
Jack Sparrow: And if there are crewmen?
Will Turner: I cut down anyone in my path.
Jack Sparrow: [turns to Gibbs] I like it. Simple, easy to remember.
Will Turner: [the crew members are hanging off in two cages near the cliffs and are climbing back up] Come on men! It'll take all of us to crew the Black Pearl!
Leech: [Leech shouts across at him] Actually, you wouldn't need everyone! About six would do!
Leech: Oh, dear.
Davey Jones: Life is cruel. Why should the afterlife be any different?
Jack Sparrow: [to Pintel and Ragetti] Guard the boat, mind the tide... don't touch my dirt.
Davey Jones: I wonder, Sparrow, can you live with this? Can you condemn an innocent man, a friend, to a lifetime of servitude in your name while you roam free?
Jack Sparrow: [thinks for a second] Yep. I'm good with it.
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?
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?
Scarlett: Jack Sparrow?
Giselle: Haven't seen him in a month.
Scarlett: When you find him, will you give him a message?
[Slaps Will in the face]
Jack Sparrow: Darling, I am truly unhappy to have to tell you this, but through an unfortunate and entirely unforeseeable series of circumstances that had nothing whatsoever to do with me, poor Will has been press-ganged into Davy Jones's crew.
Davey Jones: You have a debt to pay. You've been captain of the Black Pearl for thirteen years. That was our agreement.
Jack Sparrow: Technically, I was only captain for two years, then I was viciously mutinied upon.
Davey Jones: Then you were a poor captain, but a captain nonetheless! Have you not introduced yourself all these years as "Captain Jack Sparrow"?
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: Wondering how it's played?
Will Turner: I understand. It's a game of deception. But your bet includes all the dice, not just your own. What are they wagering?
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: Oh, the only thing we have. Years of service.
Will Turner: So any crew member can be challenged?
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: Aye. Anyone.
Will Turner: I challenge Davy Jones.
Davy Jones: [Davy Jones is stepping down the stairs and as he does, barnacles and mussels hanging on the steps retract] I accept, mate
Gibbs: [in Tortuga signing sailors up] And what makes you think you're worthy to crew the Black Pearl?
Very Old Man: Truth be told, I've never sailed a day in me life. I think I should get out and see the world while I'm still young.
Gibbs: You'll do, make your mark. Next!
Skinny Man: My wife ran off with my dog and I'm drunk for a month and I don't give a ass rat's if I live or die.
Gibbs: Perfect, next!
Elizabeth Swann: We're not getting out of this.
Norrington: Not with the chest. Into the boat.
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.
Gibbs: Where's the Commodore?
Jack Sparrow: He fell behind.
Gibbs: [solemnly] My prayers be with him.
Gibbs: Best not wallow in our grief!
Norrington: Do excuse me while I kill the man who ruined my life.
Will Turner: Be my guest.
Jack Sparrow: Let us examine that claim for a moment, former Commodore, shall we? Who was it that, at the very moment you had a notorious pirate safely behind bars, saw fit to free said pirate and take your dearly beloved all to hisself, eh? So whose fault is it *really* that you've ended up a rum-pot deckhand what takes orders from pirates?
[Jack somersaults off roof, Norrington turns to Will]
Norrington: Unfortunately Mr. Turner, he's right!
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.
Tia Dalma: You know I demand payment.
Jack Sparrow: I brought payment. Look.
[brings out the monkey in a cage, shoots him]
Jack Sparrow: An undead monkey! Top that!
Tia Dalma: [releases the monkey from the cage]
Gibbs: [muttered] No...
Gibbs: You've no idea how long it took us to catch that.
Tia Dalma: The payment is fair...
Gibbs: [as Jack steps onto the ship] Not quite according to plan...
Jack Sparrow: Complications arose, ensued, were overcome.
Gibbs: [while the Pearl's crew and Will are in the bone cages on the cannibal's island] The Pelagostos made Jack their chief. But he only stays chief so long as he *acts* like a chief
Will Turner: So, Jack had no choice. He's as captive as the rest of us.
Gibbs: Worse, it turns out. See, the Pelagostos believe Jack is a god in human form, and they intend of doing him the honor of releasing him from his fleshy prison.
[Cotton takes Gibbs fingers and bites them to show a point]
Gibbs: Aaah! They will roast him and eat him.
Will Turner: Where's the rest of the crew?
Gibbs: [ominously] These cages we're in... were not built until *after* we got here.
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!
Gibbs: [Tia Dalma just uncovered Jack's Black Spot] The Black Spot!
[he does a strange superstitous dance]
Ragetti: The Black Spot!
Pintel: Black Spot!
[Pintel and Ragetti do the same dance]
Jack Sparrow: My eyesight's as good as ever, just so you know.
Crewmember: Me have one arm and a bum leg.
Gibbs: It's the crow's nest for you.
Jack Sparrow: [to Elizabeth] One word love: curiosity. You long for freedom. You long to do what you want to do because you want it. To act on selfish impulse. You want to see what it's like. One day you won't be able to resist.
Jack Sparrow: Mr. Gibbs.
Jack Sparrow: We have a need to travel upriver.
Gibbs: By "need," do you mean a trifling need? Fleeting? As in, say, a passing fancy?
Jack Sparrow: No, a resolute and unyielding need.
Hadras: [chuckles evilly] Your bravery is wasted. I shall pry the chest away from your cold... dead... hands.
Norrington: [looks around, then tosses the empty chest into Hadras' hands] Here you go!
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?
Elizabeth Swann: I'm not sorry.
Jack Sparrow: [almost understandingly] Pirate.
Pintel: ...I always heard it said "kray-kin"
Ragetti: What? With a long A?
Ragetti: Na-na-na-na-no-no no "Krah-ken"'s how it's pronounced in the original Scandinavian, and "Krakken"'s closer to that.
Pintel: Well we ain't original Scandinavians, are we? Kray-kin.
Ragetti: It's a mythological creature, I can calls it what I wants!
Pintel: [watching Norrington, Will and Jack fight whilst Elizabeth is screaming and throwing rocks] How'd this go all screwy?
Ragetti: Well, each wants the chest for hisself, don't 'e? Mr. Norrington, I think, is trying to regain a bit of honor. Old Jack's looking to trade it, save his own skin. And Turner there, I think 'e's trying to settle some unresolved business twixt him and his twice-cursed pirate father.
Davey Jones: Let no joyful voice be heard! Let no man look up at the sky with hope! And let this day be cursed by we who ready to wake... the Kraken!
Will Turner: [comes ashore and sees the bird] Ah. A familiar face.
Cotton's Parrot: [squawks] Don't eat me!
Will Turner: [confused] I'm not going to eat you.
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.
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.
Mr. Mercer: The last of our ships is returned.
Lord Cutler Beckett: Is there any news on the chest?
Mr. Mercer: None. But one of the ships did pick up a man adrift at sea.
[drops the Letters of Marque on the desk]
Mr. Mercer: He had these.
[Beckett opens the letter to look at it before looking up at Norrington]
Norrington: I took the liberty of filling in my name.
Lord Cutler Beckett: If you intend to claim these, then you must have something to trade. Do you have the Compass?
Norrington: [shakes his head] Better.
[tosses a bag onto Beckett's desk]
Norrington: The heart of Davey Jones.
Norrington: [drunk and angry] So am I worthy to serve under Captain Jack Sparrow...
[he draws his pistol and points it at Jack, who is hiding behind a pole]
Norrington: ... or should I just kill you now?
Jack Sparrow: [tries and fails to hide behind his pole] You're hired!
Norrington: Sorry. Old habits and all that.
[smiles and prepares to pull the trigger]
Gibbs: [while recruiting in Tortuga] And what's *your* story?
Norrington: My story? It's exactly the same as your story, just one chapter behind. I chased a man across the seven seas. The pursuit cost me my crew... my commission... and my life.
[he swigs some rum]
Gibbs: [a pause, as it dawns on him] ... Commodore?
Norrington: [suddenly angry] No, not anymore, weren't you *listening*?
Gibbs: [Jack's hat is tossed overboard by the monkey while the Black Pearl is fleeing the Kraken] Jack's hat!
[the crew gathers at the rail]
Gibbs: Clear about!
Jack Sparrow: No, no! Leave it!
[the whole crew stares at him incredulously]
Jack Sparrow: Run!
[he runs away]
Gibbs: [he looks at the crew] Back to yer stations, the lot o' ye!
[he finds Jack hiding underneath the stairs]
Jack Sparrow: Shhh.
Gibbs: For the love of Mother and Child, Jack, what's coming after us?
Jack Sparrow: [short pause] Nothing.
Jack Sparrow: [after being covered in mucus after the Kraken roars at him] Not so bad...
[wipes the slime from his face]
Jack Sparrow: [he looks down and sees his old hat] Oh!
[reaches for his hat and puts it on]
Jack Sparrow: 'Ello, beastie.
[smiles and draws his sword]
Jack Sparrow: No, no! More wood! Big fire! I am chief! Want big fire!
Ragetti: [studies his upside-down Bible intently, then looks up] Well, I say it was Divine Providence what escaped us from jail.
Pintel: And *I* say it was me bein' clever.
[turns to the dog with the keys]
Pintel: Ain't that right, Poochie?
Ragetti: Well, how'd you know it weren't Divine Providence what inspired you to *be* clever?
Davey Jones: [after watching the Kraken devour Jack] Jack Sparrow... Our debt is settled.
Maccus: Turns out not even Jack Sparrow can best the devil!
Jack Sparrow: You mistrust me? Listen, you can mistrust him, trust me.
Gibbs: There's only half a dozen kegs of powder!
Will Turner: Then load the rum!
[long silence; crew stops working]
Gibbs: Aye! The rum too!
Tia Dalma: You have a touch of destiny about you, William Turner.
Will Turner: You know me?
Tia Dalma: You want to know me.
Jack Sparrow: There'll be no knowing here! We've come for help and were not leaving without it.
Jack Sparrow: I thought I knew you...
Jack Sparrow: No worries! Tia Dalma and I go way back... thick as thieves, nigh inseparable we are... were... have been... before...
Gibbs: I'll watch yer back.
Jack Sparrow: It's me front I'm worried about.
Gibbs: [to Will] Mind the boat.
Will Turner: [to Ragetti] Mind the boat.
Ragetti: [to Pintel] Mind the boat.
Pintel: [to Marty] Mind the boat.
Marty: [to Cotton's parrot] Mind the boat.
Cotton's Parrot: [to Cotton] Mind the boat.
[It flies off, leaving Cotton to pout and sit back down in the boat]
Lord Cutler Beckett: Perhaps you remember a certain pirate named Jack Sparrow.
Elizabeth Swann: *Captain* Jack Sparrow.
Jack Sparrow: My compass is unique.
Norrington: *Unique* here having the meaning of *broken*?
Jack Sparrow: True enough.
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: It was always in my blood to die at sea, but it was not a fate I ever wanted for you.
Will Turner: It was not a fate you had to choose for yourself, either.
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: I could say I did what I had to when I left you to go pirating, but it would taste a lie to say it wasn't what I wanted. You owe me nothing.
Will Turner: They'll know you helped me.
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: [laughs cynically] What more can they do to me?
Will Turner: This is a promise. I'll find a way to sever Jones' hold on you, and not rest until my blade pierces his heat. I will not abandon you. I promise.
Jack Sparrow: Ah! A heading. Set sail in a... uh... a general... that way! direction.
Governor Weatherby Swann: You have no reason and no authority to arrest this man!
Lord Cutler Beckett: In fact I do. Here is the warrant for the arrest of one William Turner.
Governor Weatherby Swann: ...This warrant is for Elizabeth Swann!
Lord Cutler Beckett: Oh, is it? That's annoying. My mistake, arrest her too.
Lord Cutler Beckett: The East India Trading Company has need of your services. We wish for you to act as our agent in a business transaction with our mutual friend Captain Sparrow.
Will Turner: More acquaintance than friend. How do you know him?
Lord Cutler Beckett: We've had dealings in the past. And we've each left out mark on each other.
Will Turner: What mark did he leave on you?
Lord Cutler Beckett: By your efforts, Jack Sparrow was set free. I would like you to go to him and recover a certain property in his position.
Will Turner: Recover? At the point of a sword?
Lord Cutler Beckett: Bargain! You will offer what amounts to a full pardon. Jack will be free. A privateer in the employ of England.
Will Turner: Somehow I doubt Jack will consider employment the same as being free.
Lord Cutler Beckett: Freedom! Jack Sparrow is a dying breed. The world is shrinking. The blank edges of the map filled in. Jack must find his place in the new world or perish.
Governor Weatherby Swann: We must find out own avenue to secure your freedom.
Will Turner: Is that a lack of faith in Jack, or in me?
Governor Weatherby Swann: That you would risk your life to save Sparrow's does not mean that he would do the same for anyone else.
Crewmember: Five lashes will remind you to stay on 'em!
Crewmember: Impeding me in my duties? You'll share the punishment!
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: I'll take it all!
Davy Jones: Will you, now? And what would prompt such an act of charity?
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: My son. He's my son.
Jack Sparrow: [pulls out sword and threatens Will] Can't let you do that, William. 'Cause if Jones is dead, who's to call his terrible beastie off the hunt, eh? Now, if you please. The key.
Will Turner: [Pulls his sword on Jack] I keep the promises I make, Jack. I intend to free my father. I hope you're here to see it.
Norrington: [Norrington draws his sword, points it at Will] I can't let you do that, either. So sorry.
Jack Sparrow: [to Norrington] I knew you'd warm up to me eventually.
Norrington: [Norrington points his sword at Jack] Lord Beckett desires the contents of that chest. I deliver it, I get my life back.
Jack Sparrow: Ah. The dark side of ambition.
Norrington: Oh, I prefer to see it as the promise of redemption.
Jack Sparrow: Have you not met Will Turner? He's noble, heroic - terrific soprano. Worth at least four... maybe three and a half. And did I happen to mention... he's in love? With a girl. Due to be married. Betrothed. Dividing him from her and her from him would only be half as cruel as actually allowing them to be joined in holy matrimony, eh?
Governor Weatherby Swann: Captain...
[the Captain falls dead revealing Mr. Mercer]
Mr. Mercer: Evening, Governer. Shame that. He was carryin' this.
[Holds up letters]
Mr. Mercer: It's a letter to the King. It's from you.
Governor Weatherby Swann: No...
[Turns back toward the carriage]
Governor Weatherby Swann: [a group of soldiers arrive to check the carriage]
Governor Weatherby Swann: Elizabeth.
Mr. Mercer: [Grabs Governer Swann] Where is she?
Governor Weatherby Swann: Who?
Jack Sparrow: It's funny what a man will do to forestall his final judgment.
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: You made a deal with him too, Jack. He raised the Pearl from the depths for you. Thirteen years you've been her captain.
Jack Sparrow: Technically...
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: You won't be able to talk yourself out of this. The terms that apply to me apply to you as well. One soul, bound to crew a hundred years upon his ship.
Jack Sparrow: Yes, but the Flying Dutchmen already has a captain, so there's really...
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: Then it's the locker for you! Jones' terrible leviathan will find you, and drag the Pearl back to the depths and you along with it.
Jack Sparrow: Any idea when Jones might release said terrible beastie?
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: I've already told you, Jack. Your time is up. He comes now.
Davey Jones: They're here. And I cannot set foot on land for near of a decade.
Maccus: You'll trust us to act in your stead.
Davey Jones: I'll trust you to know what awaits you should you fail!
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: Jones's terrible leviathan will find you, and drag the Pearl back to the depths and you along with it!
Jack Sparrow: Any idea when Jones might release said terrible beastie?
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: I already told you, Jack. Your time is up.
[he grabs Jack's hand and folds it into a fist, as if handing him something]
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: It comes now, drawn with ravenous hunger to the man what bears the Black Spot.
[Jack unfolds his hand and sees the Black Spot appear on his palm]
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: Once you've sworn an oath to the Dutchman, there's no leaving it. Not until your debt is paid.
Will Turner: I've sworn no oath.
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: [grasps Will's shoulders] Then you must get away.
Guard: Mr. Swann...
Governor Weatherby Swann: *Governor* Swann, still. Do you think I wear this wig to keep my head warm?
Tia Dalma: The compass you bartered from me it cannot lead you to this?
Jack Sparrow: Maybe. Why?
Tia Dalma: Ah, Jack Sparrow does not know what he wants.
Pintel: Haul loose the mooring line!
Ragetti: He's got me eye! He won't give it back.
Pintel: Well how'd you get it back last time?
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.
Cotton's Parrot: [Squawk] Don't eat me! Don't eat me!
Will Turner: [looks bewildered] I'm not going to eat you!
Gibbs: And mark my words, what bodes ill for Jack Sparrow bodes ill for us all.
Captain Bellamy: [to his crew] I want you to search the ship and find her. Oh and, uh, she's probably naked.
[the crew hurries]
Jack Sparrow: To what do I owe the pleasure of your carbuncle?
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: He sent me. Davy Jones.
Jack Sparrow: [Jack looks at the sleeping crew] As you were, gents.
Tia Dalma: You know of Davy Jones? A man of the sea, a great sailor. Until he run afoul of that which vexes all men.
Will Turner: What vexes all men?
Tia Dalma: What indeed.
Gibbs: The sea?
Ragetti: The dichotomy of good and evil?
Jack Sparrow: A woman.
Tia Dalma: A woman. He fell in love.
Gibbs: No, no, I heard it was the sea he fell in love with.
Tia Dalma: [annoyed] Same story, different versions. And all are true. See, it was a woman as changing and harsh and untamable as the sea. Him never stopped loving her. But the pain it caused was to much to live with, but not enough to cause him to die.
Will Turner: What exactly did he put into the chest?
Tia Dalma: Him heart.
Ragetti: Literally or figuratively?
Pintel: He couldn't literally put his heart in a chest. Could he?
Tia Dalma: It was not worth feeling what small, fleeting joy life brings.
Cotton's Parrot: [squawk] Walk the plank!
Jack Sparrow: [pulls out gun and points it at the bird] What did the bird say?
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.
Gibbs: [questioning him as he is about to sign the roster] And what makes you think you're good enough to crew the Black Pearl?
Very Old Man: Truth be told, I never sailed a day in me life. I figure I should get out, see the world while I'm still young.
Jack Sparrow: [to Elizabeth] You know, these clothes do not flatter you at all. It should be a dress or nothing. I happen to have no dress in my cabin.
Jack Sparrow: [describing Will to the cannibal villagers] Lum se se, eunuch-y. Snip snip.
Hadras: [his head has come off and he is now shouting directions to the blind body] Anido. Anido! Follow my voice, follow my voice! To the left. No! Other left. Go
[the body rams against a tree]
Hadras: ... No, that's a tree.
Marty: The captain does seem to be acting a bit strange... er.
Wyvern: [telling Will what to do] Open the chest with the key, and stab the heart. No-no-no-no. Don't stab the heart. The Dutchman needs a living heart, or there'll be no captain. And if there's no captain, there's no one to have the key.
Gibbs: Captain, I think the crew, meaning me as well, were expecting something a bit more... shiny. What with the Isle de Muerta going all pear-shaped, reclaimed by the sea and the treasure with it.
Leech: And the Royal Navy chasing us all around the Atlantic.
Marty: And the hurricane.
Marty: Do we have a heading?
Jack Sparrow: Ah! A heading! Set sail in a general...
[points around vaguely]
Jack Sparrow: *That* way direction.
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.
Will Turner: Jack, Elizabeth is in danger!
Jack Sparrow: Have you considered keeping more watchful eye on her? Maybe just lock her up somewhere.
Will Turner: That's the Flying Dutchman? It doesn't look like much.
Jack Sparrow: Neither do you. Do not underestimate.
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.
Jack Sparrow: You know, Lizzie, I happen to be captain of a ship. And, as captain, I could perform... a mar-i-age. Right here, on this deck, right now.
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: [after whipping Will] The bosun prides himself on cleaving flesh from bone with every swing!
Will Turner: So I am to believe that what you did was an act of compasion?
'Bootstrap' Bill Turner: Yes...
Jack Sparrow: [after searching the shattered jar of dirt for Davy Jones' heart] Where is it? Where is the thump-thump?
Jack Sparrow: [talking about Jack's debt to Jones] You already have my payment. One soul to serve on your ship is already over there.
Davey Jones: One soul is not equal to another.
Jack Sparrow: Ah-ha! So, we've established my proposal as sound in principle. Now, we're just haggling over price.
Marty: [after burning off a few of the Kraken's tentacles] Did we kill it?
Gibbs: No... we just made it angry.
Lord Cutler Beckett: A marriage interrupted... or fate intervenes?
Will Turner: This... is going to save Elizabeth?
Jack Sparrow: How much do you know about Davey Jones?
Will Turner: Not much.
Jack Sparrow: Yeah, it's gonna save Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Swann: Oh fine! Let's just haul out our swords and start banging away at each other! That will solve everything!
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.
Jack Sparrow: [to Elizabeth about Will who's knocked out] Leave 'im lie... unless you're planning to use him to hit somethin' with.
Will Turner: If we can outrun her, we can take her. We should turn and fight.
Jack Sparrow: Why fight when you can negotiate?
Elizabeth Swann: James Norrington, what has the world done to you?
Tia Dalma: If you go and brave da weird and haunted shores at world's end, then you will need a captain who knows dose waters.
Barbossa: [Boot steps approach] ... So, tell me, what's become of my ship?
Elizabeth Swann: I've had it! I've had it with wobbly-legged, rum-soaked PIRATES!
Will Turner: Jack...? Jack Sparrow? I can honestly say I'm glad to see you.
Lord Cutler Beckett: Every man has a price he will willingly accept, even for what he hoped never to sell.
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.
Marty: [Marty picks up the cloth] It's a key!
Jack Sparrow: No! Much more better. It is a *drawing* of a key.
Captain Bellamy: [he sees that the quartermaster and the bursar are arguing over a dress] If you both fancy the dress, you'll just have to share, and wear it one after the other.
Burser: It's not like that, sir. The ship is haunted.
Mr. Mercer: [he has just killed the captain of a ship and is addressing Governor Swann] 'Evening, Gov'nor. Shame, eh?
[holds up letters]
Mr. Mercer: He was carrying these. It's a letter to the king.
Mr. Mercer: It's from you.
Jack Sparrow: Gentlemen... what do keys do?
Leech: Keys unlock... things?
Gibbs: And whatever this key unlocks, inside there's something valuable. So we're setting out to find whatever this key unlocks!
Jack Sparrow: No. If we don't have the key, we can't open whatever it is we don't have that it unlocks. So what purpose would be served in finding whatever need be unlocked, which we don't have, without first having found the key what unlocks it?
Gibbs: So we're going after this key!
Jack Sparrow: You're not making any sense at all.
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!
Davy Jones: Life is cruel! Why should the afterlife be any different?
[seeing Jack rowing away from the Pearl]
Elizabeth Swann: Oh, you coward.
