Why is the rum always gone?
I’m taking a break from the alphabet this week in honor of the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End tonight (yes, I’m going, d’oh!)! Without further ado, here are
Thirteen Quotes I love from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies
13. Elizabeth: Captain Barbossa , I am here to negotiate the cessation of hostilities against Port Royal. Barbossa: There are 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. Means “no”.
12. Barbossa: First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement so I must do nothing. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the pirate’s code to apply and you’re not. And thirdly, the code is more what you’d call “guidelines” than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Miss Turner .
11. Pintel: [opens door of the closet] ‘Ello, Poppet.
10. Will Turner: You cheated. Jack Sparrow: Pirate.
9. Barbossa: 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. [steps into moonlight becoming a skeleton] You best start believing in ghost stories Miss Turner. You’re in one.
8. Barbossa: You’re off the edge of the map, mate. Here there be monsters.
7. Jack Sparrow: Now… bring me that horizon. [humming] “And really bad eggs.” Drink up me ‘earties. Yo ho. [snaps compass shut]
6. Jack Sparrow: We are very much alike, you and I, I and you… us. Elizabeth Swann: Oh. Except for a sense of honor and decency and a moral center. And personal hygiene. Jack Sparrow: [Sniffs his armpit and looks back] Trifles.
5. Tia Dalma: Would you do it? Hm? What would you… Hm? What would any of you be willing to do, hm? Would you sail to the ends of the Earth and beyond to fetch back witty Jack and him precious Pearl?
4. Elizabeth Swann: There will come a moment when you will have a chance to show it. To do the right thing. Jack Sparrow: I love those moments. I like to wave at them as they pass by.
3. Jack Sparrow: ‘Ello, beastie. [smiles and draws his sword]
2. Tia Dalma: The compass you bartered from me it cannot lead you to this? Jack Sparrow: Maybe. Why? Tia Dalma: Ah, Jack Sparrow does not know what he wants.
1. Will Turner: What vexes all men? Tia Dalma: What, indeed. Gibbs: Well, the sea! Pintel: Sums! Ragetti: The dichotomy of good and evil. Jack Sparrow: A woman.
