"This is barbaric! This is no way for grown men to settle—oh, fine! Let's just haul out our swords and start banging away at each other, that will solve everything! I've had it! I've had it with wobbly-legged, rum-soaked pirates!"
"Captain Sparrow?" "Come to join me crew, lad? Welcome aboard." I'm here to find the man I love." "I'm deeply flattered son, but my first and only love is the sea." "Meaning William Turner, Captain Sparrow." "Elizabeth?"
"You are Sao Feng, the Pirate Lord of Singapore. You command in an age of piracy where bold captains sail free waters. Where waves aren't measured in feet, but as increments of fear, and those who pass the test become legend. Would you have that era come to an end on your watch? The most notorious pirates from around the world are uniting against our enemy, and yet you sit here cowering in your bathwater!"
"Then what shall we die for? Now You will listen to me. Listen! The Brethren will still be looking here, to us, to the Black Pearl to lead. And what will they see? Frightened bilge rats aboard a derelict ship? No. No, they will see free men! And freedom! And what the enemy will see is the flash of our cannons. They will hear the ring of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brows, and the strength of our backs…and the courage of our hearts! Gentlemen! Hoist the colors."
"Very well. You hand that over, we'll put your town to our rudder and ne'er return." "Can I trust you?" "It's you who invoked the parlay! Believe me, Miss, you'd best hand it over, now ... or these be the last friendly words you'll hear!"
"Elizabeth, are you well? Everything shipshape and Bristol fashion? My tremendous intuitive sense of the female creature informs me you are troubled." "I just thought I'd be married by now." "I like marriage! It's like a wager on who will fall out of love first. You know, I am captain of a ship. I could perform a marriage right here on this deck, right now." "No, thank you."
"You know this place?" "Stories. The Church came to the island, and brought salvation, and disease and death. They say the priest had to bury everybody, one after the other. It drove him mad, and he hung himself." "Better mad with the rest of the world than sane alone."
"You can fight. You are Sao Feng, the Pirate Lord of Singapore. You command in the Age of Piracy, where bold captains sail free waters, where waves are not measured in feet but as increments of fear, and those who pass the test become legend. Would you have that era come to an end on your watch? But here you are. Your ships crowd in the harbor, rotting on their lines, while you cower in your bathwater!"
