Captain Jack is Back

 Jack Sparrow: It is a drawing of a key.
Gentlemen, what do keys do?
Leech: Keys... unlock things?
Gibbs: And whatever this key unlocks, inside there's something valuable.
So we're setting out to find whatever this key unlocks.
Jack Sparrow: No.
If we don't have the key, we can't open whatever we don't have that it unlocks.
So what purpose would be served in finding whatever need be unlocked, which we don't have,
without first having found the key what unlocks it?
Gibbs: So, we're going after this key.
Jack Sparrow: You're not making any sense at all.

Bootstrap: I'm sorry for the part I played in the mutiny against you, Jack.
I stood up for you.
Everything went wrong after that.
They strapped me to a cannon.
I ended up on the bottom of the ocean, the weight of the water crushing down on me.
Unable to move, unable to die, Jack.
And I thought that even the tiniest hope of escaping this fate, I would take it.
I would trade anything for it.
Jack Sparrow: It's funny what a man will do to forestall his final judgement.
Bootstrap: You made a deal with him too, Jack.
He raised The Pearl from the depths for you.
13 years, you've been her captain.
You won't be able to talk yourself out of this.
The terms what applied to me apply to you as well.
One soul bound to crew 100 years upon his ship.
Jack Sparrow: The Flying Dutchman already has a captain...
Bootstrap: Then it's the locker for you!
Jones's terrible leviathan will find you and drag The Pearl back to the depths and you along with it.

 Elizabeth: You sent Will to get you the compass owned by Jack Sparrow.
It will do you no good.
Lord Beckett: Do explain.
Elizabeth: I have been to the Isal de Muerta.
I have seen the treasure myself.
There is something you need to know.
Lord Beckett: You think the compass leads only to the Isla de Muerta
and so you hope to save me from an evil fate.
But you mustn't worry.
I care not for cursed Aztec gold.
My desires are not so provincial.
There's more than one chest of value in these waters.

Ragetti: How'd you know it weren't Divine Providence what inspired you to be clever?
Anyways, I ain't stealing no ship.
Pintel: It ain't stealing, it's salvaging.
And since when did you care?
Ragetti: Since we're not immortal no more.
We gotta take care of our immortal souls.
Pintel: You know you can't read.
Ragetti: It's the Bible. You get credit for trying.
Pintel: Pretending to read the Bible's a lie.

Will: Why is Jack afraid of the open ocean?
Gibbs: Well, if you believe such things, there's a beast does the bidding of Davy Jones.
A fearsome creatures with giant tentacles that'll suction your face clean off
and drag an entire ship down to the crushing darkness.
The kraken.
Imagine, the last thing you know on God's green earth is the roar of the kraken
and the reeking odor of a thousand rotting corpses.
If you believe such things.
Will: And the key will spare him that?
Gibbs: That's the very question Jacks wants answered.
Bad enough even to go visit... her.

You have a touch of destiny about you, William Turner.
~Tia Dalma

Tia Dalma: Your key go to a chest.
And it is what lay inside the chest you seek, don't it?
Gibbs: What is inside?
Pintel: Gold? Jewels? Unclaimed properties of a valuable nature?
Ragetti: Nothing bad, I hope?
Tia Dalma: You know Davy Jones, yes?
A man of the sea.
A great sailor.
Until he run a foul of that which vex all men.
Will: What vexes all men?
Tia Dalma: What indeed?
Gibbs: The sea?
Pintel: Sums?
Ragetti: The dichotomy of good and evil?
Jack Sparrow: A woman.
Tia Dalma: A woman.
He fell in love.
Gibbs: No, no, no. I heard it was the sea he fell in love with.
Tia Dalma: Same story, different versions, and all are true.
It was a woman as changing and harsh and untamable as the sea.
Him never stopped loving her.
But the pain it cause him was too much to live with but not enough to cause him to die.
 Will: What exactly did he put into the chest?
Tia Dalma: Him heart.
Ragetti: Literally or figuratively?
Pintel: He couldn't literally put his heart in a chest. Could he?
Tia Dalma: It was not worth feeling what small, fleeting joy life brings.
And so, him carve out him heart, lock it away in a chest and hide the chest from the world.
The key, he keep with him at all times.

Davy Jones cannot make port.
Cannot step on land but once every 10 years.
Land is where you are safe, Jack Sparrow, and so you will carry land with you.
~Tia Dalma

Do you fear death?
Do you fear that dark abyss?
All your deeds laid bare.
All your sins punished.
I can offer you an escape.
~Davy Jones

Wyvern: The dead man's chest.
Will: What do you know of this?
Wyvern: Open the chest with the key, and stab the heart...
No, no, no, don't stab the heart.
The Dutchman needs a living heart or there'll be no captain.
And if there's no captain, there's no one to have the key.
Will: So the captain has the key?
Where is the key?
Wyvern: Hidden.
Will: Where is the chest?
Wyvern: Hidden.

Jack Sparrow: My compass, is unique.
Norrington: Unique here having the meaning of broken.
Jack Sparrow: True enough, this compass does not point north.
Elizabeth: Where does it point?
Jack Sparrow: It points to the thing you want most in this world. 

Bootstrap: Get yourself to land and stay there.
It was always in my blood to die at sea.
It was not a fate I ever wanted for you.
Will: It's not a fate you had to choose for yourself, either.
