[In Beckett's cabin on the Endeavour. Beckett is offering Jack a deal to have Jack give away information] Jack: Regarding the Brethren Court, no doubt? [Takes the glass of brandy offered by Beckett and steals the other] In exchange for fair compensation...[Drinks down one glass] square my debt with Jones...[Drinks down the other glass] guarantee my freedom?
Beckett: Of course. It's just good business.
Jack: [Holding up Beckett's metal Admiral figurine] And what would I, if I were in a divulgatory mood, might I divulge?
Beckett: Everything. Where are the Brethren Court meeting? Who are the Pirate Lords? [Whispering intently into Jack's ear] What is the purpose of the Nine Pieces of Eight?
[After a cut scene on the Pearl] Jack: [Waving Beckett's fan] You can keep Barbossa. The belligerent homoculous and his friend with the wooden eye, both, and Turner. Especially Turner. The rest go with me aboard the Pearl, and I will hand you Shipwreck Cove and you will not hand me to Jones.
Beckett: And what becomes of Miss Swann?
Jack: ...What importance is she to you?
Beckett: You know, Jack, I just remembered I have this wonderful compass that points to anything I want, so for what do I require you? [Holds up the magic compass]
Jack: It points to the thing you want the most, and that is not the Brethren Court, is it?
Beckett: Then what is, Jack?
Jack: Me...dead.
Beckett: Damn! [He tosses the compass back to Jack. Jack tosses the fan back to Beckett] Although, if I kill you, then I can use the compass to find, Shipwreck Cove, is it? On my own. [Points a pistol at Jack] Cut out the middle man, as it were.
Jack: With me dead, you'd arrive at Shipwreck Cove, and find it is a fortress nigh impregnable, able to withstand blockade for years, and then you'd be wishing, "Oh, if only there was someone that I had not killed inside to make sure that the pirates come outside."
Beckett: And you can do all this?
Jack: You may kill me, but you will never insult me. Who am I? [Beckett shrugs like he doesn't know. Jack gives him a look of stupefied confusion] I'm Captain Jack Sparrow! [The Endeavour suddenly shakes from cannon fire hitting it. Beckett reels against his desk. Jack quickly shakes his hand] Done!
