Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007) Poster

Geoffrey Rush: Captain Hector Barbossa



  • [Barbossa is giving orders and Jack repeats the order] 

    Barbossa : What are you doin'?

    Jack Sparrow : What are *you* doin'?

    Barbossa : No, what *are* you doin'?

    Jack Sparrow : What are *you* doin'?

    Barbossa : *No!* What *are* you doin'?

    Jack Sparrow : What are *you* doin'? Captain gives orders on the ship.

    Barbossa : The captain of the ship *is* givin' orders.

    Jack Sparrow : My ship, makes me captain.

    Barbossa : They be my charts!

    Jack Sparrow : Well, that makes you


    Jack Sparrow : chartman.

    Pintel : Stow it! Both of you! That's an order! Understand?

    [Jack and Barbossa stare at him] 

    Pintel : Sorry. I just thought with the Captain issue in doubt, I'd throw my name in for consideration, sorry.

    Ragetti : [to Pintel]  I'd vote for you.

  • Barbossa : [Jack and Barbossa see the dead Kraken]  Still thinkin' of running, Jack? Think you can outrun the world? You know the problem with being the last of anything, by and by there be none left at all.

    Jack Sparrow : Sometimes things come back mate. We're livin' proof, you and me.

    Barbossa : Aye, but that's a gamble of long odds, ain't it? There's never a guarantee of comin' back. But passin' on, that's dead certain.

    Jack Sparrow : Summoning the brethren court then, is it?

    Barbossa : It's our only hope, lad.

    Jack Sparrow : That's a sad commentary in and of itself.

    Barbossa : The world used to be a bigger place.

    Jack Sparrow : World's still the same. There's just less in it.

  • Barbossa : Dying is the day worth living for.

  • 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!

  • Barbossa : There's not been a gatherin' like this in our lifetime.

    Jack Sparrow : And I owe them all money...

  • 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 : Why should I sail with any of you? Four of you have tried to kill me in the past... one of you succeeded.

    [looks at Elizabeth; Will looks at her; she looks around, guiltily] 

    Jack Sparrow : Oh, she's not told you. You'll have loads to talk about while you're here.

    Jack Sparrow : [to Tia Dalma]  As for you...

    Tia Dalma : Now, don't tell me you didn't enjoy it at the time.

    Jack Sparrow : Fair enough. You're in.

    [begins going down the line of pirates on the beach] 

    Jack Sparrow : [to Ragetti]  Don't need you, you scare me. Gibbs, you can come. Marty, Cotton... Cotton's parrot, I'm a little iffy... At least I'll have someone to talk to.

    [to Tai Huang] 

    Jack Sparrow : Who are you?

    Tai Huang : Tai Huang. These are my men.

    Jack Sparrow : Where does your allegiance lie?

    Tai Huang : With the highest bidder.

    Jack Sparrow : I have a ship.

    Tai Huang : That makes you the highest bidder.

    Jack Sparrow : Good man. Weigh anchor, all hands! Prepare to make sail!

    [takes out compass] 

    Cotton's Parrot : Weigh anchor!

    Barbossa : [pats the charts in his hands]  Jack... Which way ya goin', Jack?

  • Captain Jocard : Who is this traitor?

    Barbossa : Not likely one among us.

    Elizabeth Swann : Where's Will?

    Jack Sparrow : Not among us.

  • 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.

  • 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 : Dearly Beloved, we be gathered here today...

    [is set upon by a fish-person, who he kicks in the face] 

    Barbossa : ... to nail yer gizzard to the mast, yer poxy cur!

  • Barbossa : You've always run away from a fight!

    Jack Sparrow : I have not!

    Barbossa : You have so!

    Jack Sparrow : Have not!

    Barbossa : Have so!

    Jack Sparrow : Have not!

    Barbossa : Have so!

    Jack Sparrow : Have not!

    Barbossa : You have so and you know it!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Barbossa : [while going down the Maelstrom]  It be too late to alter course now, mateys!

  • Barbossa : [during parlay on sandbar, to Will]  You be the cur that led these wolves to our door?

    Lord Cutler Beckett : Don't blame Turner, he was merely the tool of your betrayal. If you wish to see its grand architect, look to your left.

    Jack Sparrow : [Barbossa, Elizabeth, and Jack look left. Jack looks at Elizabeth]  My hands are clean in this, figuratively.

    Will Turner : My actions were my own and to my own purpose. Jack had nothing to do with it.

    Jack Sparrow : Well spoke, listen to the tool!

  • Barbossa : [of releasing Calypso]  It must be said as if speaking to a lover.

    [Pirates grin and nudge each other] 

    Barbossa : [loud and commanding]  Calypso! I release you from your human bonds!

    Pintel : [nothing happens]  Is that it?

    Ragetti : You didn't say it right!

    [all the pirates stare at him] 

    Ragetti : You have to say it right...

    [Ragetti leans into Calypso's ear] 

    Ragetti : [whispers tenderly]  Calypso... I release you from your human bonds.

    [Calypso is freed] 

  • Barbossa : Better were the days when mastery of seas came not from bargains struck with eldritch creatures... but from the sweat of a man's brow and the strength of his back alone. You all know this to be true!

  • 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.

  • [Sao Feng holds a knife near a frightened Asian man] 

    Captain Sao Feng : Drop your weapons, or I kill the man!

    Barbossa : Kill him, he's not our man.

    Will Turner : Wait... if he's not with you... and he's not with us... then who is he with?

  • 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!

  • Gibbs : [Jack and Elizabeth climb back onto the Black Pearl]  Thank goodness, Jack! The armada's still out there, the Endeavour is coming hard on starboard, and I think its time we embrace that oldest and noblest of pirate traditions.

    Jack Sparrow : [looks out towards the Endeavour]  Never actually been one for tradition... Close haul her! Luff the sails and lay her in irons!

    Barbossa : Belay that, or we'll be a sittin' duck!

    Jack Sparrow : Belay that belay that!

    Jack Sparrow : [crew starts arguing with him]  Belay! Belay! No! Stow! Shut it!

  • Captain Barbossa : [after reaching Shipwreck Island]  I do not renege on a bargain once struck, but we agreed on ends only, the means

    [caresses her hair] 

    Captain Barbossa : are mine to decide.

    Tia Dalma : [angrily]  Caution, Barbossa: do not forget that it was by *my* power that you were brought back from the dead-or what it'd mean if you fail me.

    Captain Barbossa : [changes Barbossa's hand into a skeletal form for a brief moment; this enrages Barbossa, who grabs her by the shoulder]  Don't you forget why you had to bring me back, why I could not leave Jack to his well-deserved fate! It took nine Pirate Lords to bind you, Calypso, and it'll take no less than nine to set you free!

  • Ragetti : I kept it safe for you, sir, just like you said...

    Captain Barbossa : I know, and I be appreciating that, but now I'll be wanting it back!

    [thwacks Pintel on the head and catches his wooden eye] 

  • Captain Barbossa : [playing with his monkey]  Oh, yes, you sho shweet! You rooby-rooby-roo! Oh, yes, you shooo...

    Pintel : Um, Captain... me, and the crew... were thinking it wasn't right to leave Captain Jack behind...

    Ragetti : Again.

    Pintel : ...again.

    Captain Barbossa : Relax, me mateys! Look at this!

    [flourishes Sao Feng's map] 

    Captain Barbossa : There's more'n one way to live forever. Soon, we shall be drinking of the Fountain of Youth...

    [discovers a hole in the map, rendering it worthless] 

    Captain Barbossa : Sparrow!

  • 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?

  • Barbossa : Strike up the colors.

  • Barbossa : Sao Feng, I assure you, I had no idea...

    Captain Sao Feng : THAT HE WOULD GET CAUGHT!

  • 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] 

  • Captain Sao Feng : It is just good business, being on the winning side...

    Captain Barbossa : The WINNING side?

    Captain Sao Feng : They have the Dutchman, and NOW the Pearl! What do the Brethren Court have?

    Captain Barbossa : We have... Calypso.

    [Feng goes into shock, then recovers] 

    Captain Sao Feng : Calypso... an old legend.

    Captain Barbossa : No. the goddess herself, imprisoned in human form by the first Pirate Lords long ago. Only the Brethren Court can release her.

    [fondles Sao Feng's piece of eight] 

    Captain Barbossa : ALL the Court.
