Jack Sparrow : You know, for all that pirates are clever-called, we are an unimaginative lot when it comes to naming things.

Gibbs : [nods] Aye.

Jack Sparrow : I once sailed with a geezer lost both his arms and part of his eye.

Gibbs : What did you call him?

Jack Sparrow : [pause] Larry.

“It’s not the problem that’s the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?”

Jack Sparrow : Cuttlefish. Eh? Let us not, dear friends, forget our dear friends the cuttlefish… flipping glorious little sausages. Pen them up together, and they will devour each other without a second thought… Human nature, in’it? Ooor… fish nature… So yes… we could hold up here, well-provisioned and well-armed, and half of us would be dead within the month! Which seems grim to me any way you slice it! Or… ahh… as my learned colleague so naively suggests, we can release Calypso, and we can pray that she will be merciful… I rather doubt it. Can we, in fact, pretend that she is anything other than a woman scorned, like which fury Hell hath no? We cannot. Res ipsa loquitur, tabula in naufragio, we are left with but one option. I agree with, and I cannot believe the words are coming out of me mouth… Captain Swann. We must fight.
