Jack: My tremendous intuitive sense of the female creatures informs me that you are troubled.
Elizabeth: I just thought 'd be married by now. 'm so ready to be married.
[Jack looks at her chest then hands her a bottle of rum]
Jack: You know, [clears throat] Lizzie, I am captain of a ship, and being captain of a ship I could in fact perform a marry-agh. Right here. Right on this deck. Right now.
Elizabeth: [Looks disgusted] No thank you.
Jack: Why not? We are very much alike, you and I, I and you, us.
Elizabeth: Except for a sense of honor, and decency, and a moral center. And personal hygiene.
Jack: [Smells under arm] Trifles. You will come over to my side, I know it.
Elizabeth: You seem very certain.
Jack: 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.
Elizabeth: Why doesn't your compass work?
Jack:...My compass works fine.
Elizabeth: Because you and I are alike. And there will come a moment when you will show it. To do the right thing.
Jack: I love those moments. I like to wave at them as they pass by.
Elizabeth: You'll have the chance to do something, something courageous. And when you do you'll discover something. That you're a good man.
Jack: All evidence to the contrary.
Elizabeth: Oh, I have faith in you. You want to know why?
Jack: Do tell, dearie.
Elizabeth: Curiosity. You're going to want it. A chance to be admired, and gain the rewards that follow. You won't be able to resist. You're going to want to know what it tastes like. [Leans in close to him]
Jack: [Eyes widen] I do want to know what it tastes like.
Elizabeth: But, seeing as you're a good man I know that you'd never put me in a position that would compromise my honor.
Jack: [Leans in to kiss her; sees black spot reappear on his hand and pulls away]
Elizabeth: 'm proud of you, Jack.
