Davy Jones: You've been captain of the Black Pearl for thirteen years. That was our agreement.
Jack: Technically, I was only captain for two years before I was viciously mutinied upon...
Davy Jones: Then you were a poor captain, but a captain nonetheless! Have you not introduced yourself, all these years, as Captain Jack Sparrow? [Jones' crew laugh mockingly.]
Jack: You have my payment. One soul to serve on your ship is already over there.
Davy Jones: One soul is not equal to another.
Jack: Aha! So we've established my proposal is sound in principle, now we're just haggling over price.
Davy Jones: [intrigued.] Price? [makes popping noise.]
Jack: Just how many souls do you think my soul is worth?
Davy Jones: One hundred souls. Three days.
Jack: You're a diamond, mate! Send me back the boy [Will Turner], we'll get started right off.
Davy Jones: I keep the boy. A good faith payment. That leaves you only 99 more to go. [laughs along with his crew]
Jack: 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 holy matrimony, eh? Eh?
Davy Jones: [brief period of misty-eyed weakness, quickly recovers.] I keep the boy, 99 souls. But 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: [beat.] Yep! 'm good with it. So, shall we seal it in blood, I mean, er... ink?
