Prisoner: [after a cannon blasts only his cell open, leaving Jack trapped] My sympathies, friend. You've no manner of luck at all.


Barbossa: I must admit, Jack, I thought I had you figured. But it turns out you're a hard man to predict.
Jack Sparrow: Me, I'm dishonest. And a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It's the honest ones you want to watch out for. Because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly...stupid.

Elizabeth: Captain Barbossa, I am here to negotiate the cessation of hostilities against Port Royal.
Barbossa: There be a lot of long words in there, miss. We're naught but humble pirates. What is it that you want?
Elizabeth: I want you to leave and never come back.
Barbossa: I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request.
[Elizabeth gives him a blank look
Barbossa: Means "no."

Lt. Gillette: [after Elizabeth asks him to tell Norrington that Barbossa's crew can't be killed] Oh, he already knows. A little mermaid flopped up on deck and told him the whole story.

[Jack throws a bucket of water on the sleeping Gibbs.]
Mr. Gibbs: Curse ya for breathin', ya slack-jawed idiot! [coughs, regains consciousness, and recognizes Jack] Mother's love. Jack! You should know better than to wake a man when he's sleepin'. It's bad luck!
Jack Sparrow: Fortunately, I know how to counter it: The man who did the waking buys the man who was sleeping a drink; the man who was sleeping drinks it while listening to a proposition from the man who did the waking.
Mr. Gibbs: [pauses, looks confused] Aye, that'll about do it.
[Will throws more water on Mr. Gibbs.]
Mr. Gibbs: Blast, I'm already awake!
Will Turner: That was for the smell.

Pintel: [discovering Elizabeth] 'Ello, poppet.

You need to find yourself a girl, mate. Or, perhaps the reason you practice three hours a day is that you've already found one, and are otherwise incapable of wooing said strumpet. You're not a eunuch, are you?

Jack Sparrow: I know those guns! [looks out the window] ...It's the Pearl.
Prisoner: The Black Pearl? I've 'eard stories. She's been preyin' on ships and settlements for near ten years. Never leaves any survivors.
Jack Sparrow: No survivors? [chuckles] Then where do the stories come from, I wonder?

Elizabeth: So that's that story of the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow? [through her teeth] You spent three days here...lying on a beach...drinking rum?
Jack Sparrow: [pauses, then offers her rum] Welcome to the Caribbean, love.

If all I have achieved here is that the hangman will earn two pairs of boots instead of one, so be it. At least my conscience will be clear.

Mr. Sparrow, you will accompany these fine men to the helm and provide us with a bearing to Isla de Muerta. You will then spend the rest of the voyage contemplating all possible meanings of the phrase "Silent as the grave." Do I make myself clear?

[Will points sword at Jack.]
Jack: Put it away, son. It's not worth you getting beat again...
Will: You didn't beat me. You ignored the rules of engagement! In a fair fight, I'd kill you!
Jack: Well, then that's not much incentive for me to fight fair then, is it?

For too long I've been parched of thirst and unable to quench it! Too long I've been starvin' to death and haven't died! I feel nothing! Not the wind on my face, nor the spray of the sea... nor the warmth of a woman's flesh...

Will: How can we sail to an island that can't be found, with a compass that doesn't work?!
Mr. Gibbs: Aye, the compass doesn't point north- but we're not trying to find north, are we?

Jack: I'm havin' a thought here, Barbossa. What say we run up a flag of truce, I scurry over to the Interceptor, and I negotiate the return of your medallion, eh? What say you to that?
Barbossa: Now, y'see, Jack, that's exactly the attitude that lost you the Pearl. People are easier to search when they're dead. Lock him in the brig.
[Barbossa's men take Jack away, Barbossa takes his apple from him, and looks at it wistfully before angrily throwing it away]
