No additional shot nor powder, a compass that doesn’t point north,
– Norrington
And I half expected it to be made of wood. You are without doubt the worst pirate I’ve ever heard of.
– Norrington
But you have heard of me.
– Jack Sparrow

Savvy?
– Jack Sparrow

Where’s Elizabeth?
– Will Turner
She’s safe, just like I promised. She’s all set to marry Norrington, just like she promised. And you get to die for her, just like you promised. So we’re all men of our word really… except for, of course, Elizabeth, who is in fact, a woman.
– Jack Sparrow

This is either madness… or brilliance.
– Will Turner
It’s remarkable how often those two traits coincide.
– Jack Sparrow

This is the day you will always remember as the day you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow!
– Jack Sparrow

For too long I’ve been parched of thirst and unable to quench it. Too long I’ve been starving 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.
– Barbossa
You best start believing in ghost stories, Miss Turner… you’re in one!
– Barbossa

A wedding? I love weddings. Drinks all around!
– Jack Sparrow

What’s your purpose in Port Royal, Mr. Smith?
– Mullroy
Yeah, and no lies.
– Murtogg
Well, then, I confess, it is my intention to commandeer one of these ships, pick up a crew in Tortuga, raid, pillage, plunder and otherwise pilfer my weasely black guts out.
– Jack Sparrow
I said no lies.
– Murtogg
I think he’s telling the truth.
– Mullroy
If he were telling the truth, he wouldn’t have told us.
– Murtogg
Unless, of course, he knew you wouldn’t believe the truth even if he told it to you.
– Jack Sparrow

That’s not true. I am not obsessed with treasure.
– Will Turner
Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate.
– Jack Sparrow

How the blazes did you get off that island?
– Barbossa
When you marooned me on that god forsaken spit of land, you forgot one very important thing, mate: I’m Captain Jack Sparrow.
– Jack Sparrow

You’re supposed to be dead!
– Pintel
Am I not?
– Jack Sparrow

Who are you?
– Barbossa
No one. He’s no one. Distant cousin of my aunt’s nephew twice removed. Lovely singing voice. Eunuch.
– Jack Sparrow

Stop blowing holes in my ship!
– Jack Sparrow

Will, how many times must I ask you to call me Elizabeth?
– Elizabeth
At least once more, Miss Swann, as always.
– Will Turner

You cheated.
– Will Turner
Pirate.
– Jack Sparrow

Now… bring me that horizon.
– Jack Sparrow
“And really bad eggs.” Drink up me ‘earties. Yo ho.
– 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.
– Jack Sparrow

So what now, Jack Sparrow? Are we to be two immortals locked in an epic battle until Judgment Day and trumpets sound?
– Barbossa
Or you could surrender.
– Jack Sparrow

The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can’t do. For instance, you can accept that your father was a pirate and a good man or you can’t. But pirate is in your blood, boy, so you’ll have to square with that some day. And me, for example, I can let you drown, but I can’t bring this ship into Tortuga all by me onesies, savvy? So, can you sail under the command of a pirate, or can you not?
– Jack Sparrow

If you were waiting for the opportune moment, that was it.
– Jack Sparrow

Any man who falls behind, is left behind.
– Jack Sparrow

Parleley, parlelellyleloooo, par le nee, partner, par… snip, parsley…
– Jack Sparrow
Parley?
– Ragetti
That’s the one. Parley. Parley.
– Jack Sparrow
Parley? Damn to the depths whatever man what thought of “Parley”.
– Pintel
That would be the French.
– Jack Sparrow

Whose side is Jack on?
– Elizabeth
At the moment?
– Will Turner

One question about your business, boy, or there’s no use going: This girl… how far are you willing to go to save her?
– Jack Sparrow
I’d die for her.
– Will Turner
Oh good. No worries then.
– Jack Sparrow

Ten years you carry that pistol and now you waste your shot.
– Barbossa
He didn’t waste it.
– Will Turner

You’re off the edge of the map, mate. Here there be monsters.
– Barbossa

Who makes all these?
– Jack Sparrow
I do. And I practice with them three hours a day.
– Will Turner
You need to find yourself a girl, mate. Or perhaps the reason you practice three hours a day is that you already found one, and are otherwise incapable of wooing said strumpet. You’re not a eunuch are you?
– Jack Sparrow
I practice three hours a day, so when I meet a pirate, I can kill it.
– Will Turner

That’s got to be the best pirate I’ve ever seen.
– Officer
So it would seem.
– Norrington
