- "Thanks, matey! I will help you reach the pirate lord, stand in the archway outside and you'll see. Good luck, Jack!"
- ―Sam to Jack Sparrow
Sam took to spending his time in the Fiddler's Green, a tavern within the confines of the Locker. He was, however, eventually banned from the establishment, and spent much of his time loitering outside.
He was approached one day by Jack Sparrow, searching for news of his fellow Pirate Lord, Gentleman Jocard. Sam informed Jack that Black Bart had kidnapped Jocard, and imprisoned him on his wrecked ship. In exchange for this information, Sparrow gave Sam several bottles of rum.
