Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006) Poster

Johnny Depp: 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.

  • 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!

    [to Gibbs] 

    Jack Sparrow : Hide the rum.

  • Jack Sparrow : [empties bottle of rum]  Why is the rum always gone?

    Jack Sparrow : [stands up and staggers drunkenly]  Oh... that's why.

  • 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 : [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.

  • 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.

  • Jack Sparrow : My tremendous intuitive sense of the female creature informs me that you are troubled.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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 : Is this a dream?

    'Bootstrap' Bill Turner : No.

    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!

  • 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.

  • 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?

    Norrington : ENOUGH!

    [Jack somersaults off roof, Norrington turns to Will] 

    Norrington : Unfortunately Mr. Turner, he's right!

  • Jack Sparrow : [to Pintel and Ragetti]  Guard the boat, mind the tide... don't touch my dirt.

  • 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"?

  • Gibbs : Where's the Commodore?

    Jack Sparrow : He fell behind.

    Gibbs : [solemnly]  My prayers be with him.

    [suddenly brightens] 

    Gibbs : Best not wallow in our grief!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

    [Speaking clearly] 

    Gibbs : You've no idea how long it took us to catch that.

    Tia Dalma : The payment is fair...

  • 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.

  • 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 : [as Jack steps onto the ship]  Not quite according to plan...

    Jack Sparrow : Complications arose, ensued, were overcome.

  • [repeated line] 

    Jack Sparrow : Oh bugger.

  • 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 : Mr. Gibbs.

    Gibbs : Captain.

    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.

  • Jack Sparrow : You mistrust me? Listen, you can mistrust him, trust me.

  • 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?

    Pintel : Sums?

    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.

  • Gibbs : [after Jack shoots the monkey]  You know that don't do no good.

    Jack Sparrow : It does me.

  • 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.

  • 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] 

    Gibbs : Jack?

    Jack Sparrow : Shhh.

    Gibbs : For the love of Mother and Child, Jack, what's coming after us?

    Jack Sparrow : [short pause]  Nothing.

  • Jack Sparrow : No, no! More wood! Big fire! I am chief! Want big fire!

  • 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.

    [to Tia] 

    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] 

  • Jack Sparrow : How are we going?

    Gibbs : Including those four? That gives us... four.

  • Jack Sparrow : Er, Mr. Gibbs...

    Gibbs : Aye.

    Jack Sparrow : I feel sullied and unusual.

  • Jack Sparrow : My compass is unique.

    Norrington : *Unique* here having the meaning of *broken*?

    Jack Sparrow : True enough.

  • 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 : Ah! A heading. Set sail in a... uh... a general... that way! direction.

  • Jack Sparrow : I want my jar of dirt!

  • 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.

  • Jack Sparrow : [heavily]  She's only a ship, mate.

  • Jack Sparrow : To what do I owe the pleasure of your carbuncle?

    'Bootstrap' Bill Turner : He sent me. Davy Jones.

  • Jack Sparrow : Gentlemen, what do keys do?

    Leech : Keys... unlock... *things*?

  • 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 : Jack, Elizabeth is in danger!

    Jack Sparrow : Have you considered keeping more watchful eye on her? Maybe just lock her up somewhere.

  • Jack Sparrow : 'Ello beastie.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • '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] 

  • 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.

  • Elizabeth Swann : Why doesn't your compass work?

    Jack Sparrow : ...My compass works fine.

  • Marty : [Marty picks up the cloth]  It's a key!

    Jack Sparrow : No! Much more better. It is a *drawing* of a key.

  • Jack Sparrow : [to Norrington]  Still rooting for you, mate!

  • Jack Sparrow : [describing Will to the cannibal villagers]  Lum se se, eunuch-y. Snip snip.

  • Will Turner : That's the Flying Dutchman? It doesn't look like much.

    Jack Sparrow : Neither do you. Do not underestimate.

  • 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.

  • Jack Sparrow : [Jack looks at the sleeping crew]  As you were, gents.

  • 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.

  • Jack Sparrow : [to Elizabeth about Will who's knocked out]  Leave 'im lie... unless you're planning to use him to hit somethin' with.

  • 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.

  • Marty : Do we have a heading?

    Jack Sparrow : Ah! A heading! Set sail in a general...

    [points around vaguely] 

    Jack Sparrow : *That* way direction.

  • Will Turner : If we can outrun her, we can take her. We should turn and fight.

    Jack Sparrow : Why fight when you can negotiate?
