Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl


1. CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow 2. A compass.... 3. The worst pirate

Norrington: [sees tattoo of a sparrow] "Well, well...Jack Sparrow, isn't it?"
Jack: "Captain Jack Sparrow, if you please, sir."
Norrington: "I don't see your ship...Captain."
Jack: "I'm in the market as it were."

Norrington: "No additional shots nor powder. A compass that doesn't point north." [unsheathes sword] "And I half expected it to be made of wood. You are, without doubt, the worst pirate I've ever heard of."
Jack: "But you have heard of me."

Norrington: "One good deed is not enough to redeem a man of a lifetime of wickedness."
Jack: "Though it seems enough to condemn him."
Norrington: "Indeed."

Jack: "Gentlemen, m'lady, you will always remember this as the day that you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow!"
Norrington: "Well, I trust you'll always remember this as the day that Captain Jack Sparrow almost escaped. Take him away."

Governor Swann: "Now will you shoot him!" Because Norrington only gapes at Jack escaping not doing anything to prevent it. Well! He is smitten. Who can blame him?

Norrington: "He is without doubt the worst pirate I have ever seen."
Groves: "That's got to be the best pirate I've ever seen."
Norrington: "So it would seem."

Jack: "Think about it, the Black Pearl, the last real pirate threat in the Caribbean, mate. How can you pass that up?"
Norrington: "By remembering that I serve others, Mr. Sparrow, not only myself."

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

Jack: "I go in to convince Barbossa to send his men out in their little boats. You and your mates return to the Dauntless and blast the beejesus outta them with your little cannons, aye? What do you have to lose?"
Norrington: "Nothing I'd lament being rid of."

Murtogg: "I know why we're here. I mean why aren't we doing for once what Mr. Sparrow said we should do. With the cannons "
Norrington: "Because it was Mr. Sparrow who said it."

Norrington: "You forget your place, Turner."
Will: "It's right here, between you and Jack."

Jack: "I want you to know that I was rooting for you, mate. Know that."

Gillette: "Commodore! What about Sparrow?"
Norrington: "Well, I think we can afford to give him one day's head start."

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Norrington: "So, am I *worthy* to serve under Captain Jack Sparrow? Or should I just kill you now?"
Jack: "You're hired."
Norrington: "Sorry. Old habits and all that."

Jack: "You look bloody awful. What are you doing here?"
Norrington: "You *hired* me. I can't help it if your standards are lax."
Jack: "You *smell* funny."

Jack: "My Compass... is unique."
Norrington: Unique here having the meaning of broken."
Jack: "True enough. This Compass does not point north."

Norrington: "You actually *were* telling the truth."
Jack: "I do that quite a lot. Yet people are always surprised."

Norrington draws his sword, points it at Will.
Norrington: "I can't let you do that, either. So sorry."
Jack: "I knew you'd warm up to me eventually."
Norrington points his sword at Jack.
Norrington: "Lord Beckett desires the contents of that chest. I deliver it, and get my life back."
Jack: "Ah. The dark side of ambition."
Norrington: "Oh, I prefer to see it as the promise of redemption."

Norrington: "Do excuse me while I kill the man who ruined my life."
Will: "Be my guest."
Jack: "Let us examine that claim for a moment, former Commodore, shall we? Who was it, who at the very moment you had a notorious pirate safely behind bars, saw fit to *free* said pirate, and take your dearly beloved all to hisself, hey? So who's fault is it, *really*, that you've ended up a rum-pot deckhand what takes orders from pirates?"
Norrington: "Enough!" - "Unfortunately, Mister Turner... He's *right*!"
Jack: "Still rooting for you, mate!"
