20090625

MICAHEL JACKSON DIED!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

20090531

so i know i don't post that often usually. but i'm trying to change that, so this post is going to be entirely what comes to my mind in the next twenty minutes. one sentance for every minute

12:20

god im so bored. i have no new emails

12:21

yay and email!

... and four spam

12:22

im bored again. i need to leave in an hour. why do i make such weird posts?

12:23

are minutes supposed to go by this fast? seriously i dont have enough time to think and then write at the same time

now im waiting for 12:24

12:24

well that took long enough. ooh, that was a gruesome part in the book. kid gets essentially squashed by a boulder.

12:25

well i just decided im not doing this for fifteen more minutes so im going to do this for two more minutes and ill be done. now im being annoyed by my brother.

12:26

why god did i start this? this is the most boring thing ive done in a long time.

12:27

yay another email. im going to answer it and leave this god forsaken post

bye now

20090529

Finals are over. Finally. lol. i didnt even get that until i wrote it down.

Cruz's blatent disregard for blogger policy to give a two week notice prior to shutting down a blog has encouraged me to continue my blog. I'm trying to have it contain more random humor. I'll also get Cruz to say things on here once in a while. K? on to the random humor part got it?

20090502

well i know that last post made no sense.

anyway.

reason for halo background: none

reason im pissed: the pic doesnt show the arbiter well at all

as for children:

we have sam and melissa

they piss me off.

if they ever figure out this thing exists, i might need to delete this post

reason: they bite.

hard.

why?

i have no idea

im not in their heads

all i know

is that they bother me

i have nothing against complete sentances

but then the post looks too short

so if i press enter

its longer

and i feel less guilty

sorry about the "tommorrow" thing. if you think about it "tomorrow" never will be. its always today.

anywho

yup its four o clock

and i have a party to go to at five

so im leaving

when i play halo three, im always the arbiter. everyone makes fun of me. the marines, the brutes, and even the person i was playing with. eventually i got so pissed off that i blew off each of the marine's heads with a spartan laser.

moral of story:

take anger management

20090419

children... small children...

yup, now there are small children (we guessed around 6 years old) running around.
umm... ill complain more tommorrow
im pretty tired...
night

20090412

video

GIRL MADE ME DO IT!!! not really, but i still only did it to show her how much better she is...

yay got my permanent new hand

and by the way

when people say "it wont hurt a bit"

their f**king liars

20090406

school

ok i typed this on my phone under the table so its not very detailed

also, my edited commentary is in (parenthises)

i spellchecked also

names have been changed to reflect the peoples personality


My Day:

(mr. geyfeg) good morning class, open your books to page 374 (a few people open books, meaning one person, then i get singled out) Richard, why do you not have your book today

(me) i forgot it at home because my car wouldnt start (total crap, and not even half believable at that)

(mr. geyfeg) well if you keep forgetting your book like this you're going to get behind (in case you havn't figgered it out he hates me) ok then, you all need to do this (excessivly redundent) worksheet. you have 20 minutes

(everyone finishes in about 10 minutes and is talking while mr. geyfeg is on the phone to his wife/girlfriend. another 20 minutes elapses)

(mr geyfeg) %#^#$%^ you know what, that assignment took the other classes about five minutese to do, why are you guys always so slow (this is AP bio we're talking about here)
let me get your homework here (he takes about five minutes just to find the work on his cluttered desk)

(me) (yes i was being intentionally obnoxious because i was planning this post) could i get a drink? (diversions work well on him)


(mr geyfeg) why do you need a drink

(me) you see, when your body goes through the process of cellular respiration, water is discarded as CO2 gas (i know i'm not making sense thats the point)

(mr geyfeg) actually ... (the point of the ... is that the bell rang a few minutes into rudely correcting me, and i once again saved the class from bio homework. yay me lol)




so thats one of my classes.


no his name is not mr geyfeg

(thats implying gay fag)

bye

comment

20090401

20090322

PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST


Written by

Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio


Transcript by

Nikki M, Dorothy/silentpawz, Jerome S, Tobias K & Courtney VP.



[view looking straight down at rolling swells, sound of wind
and thunder, then a low heartbeat]




PORT ROYAL

[teacups on a table in the rain]

[sheet music on music stands in the rain]

[bouquet of white orchids, Elizabeth sitting in the rain holding
the bouquet]

[men rowing, men on horseback, to the sound of thunder]

[EITC logo on flag blowing in the wind]

[many rowboats are entering the harbor]

[Elizabeth sitting alone, at a distance]

[marines running, kick a door in]

[a mule is seen on the left in the barn where the marines enter]


[Liz looking over her shoulder]

[Elizabeth drops her bouquet]

[Will is in manacles, being escorted by red coats]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Will...!

[Elizabeth runs to Will]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Why is this happening?

WILL TURNER
I don't know. You look beautiful.

ELIZABETH SWANN
I think it's bad luck for the groom
to see the bride before the wedding.


[marines cross their long axes to bar Governor from entering]


[Beckett, in white hair and curls, is standing with Mercer]


LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Governor Weatherby Swann, it's been
too long.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
His Lord now... actually.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
In fact, I *do*. Mister Mercer! The
warrant for the arrest of one William
Turner.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Oh, is it? That's annoying. My mistake.
Arrest her.

ELIZABETH SWANN
On what charges?

WILL TURNER
No!

[Beckett takes another document from Mercer, who is standing
with Beckett, craggy face and pony tail]

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Ah-ha! Here's the one for William Turner.
And I have another one for a Mister
James Norrington. Is he present?

ELIZABETH SWANN
*What are the charges?*

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
I don't believe that's the answer to
the question I asked.

WILL TURNER
Lord Beckett! In the category of questions
*not* answered...

ELIZABETH SWANN
We are under the jurisdiction of the
King's governor of Port Royal, and you
will tell us what we are charged with.


LORD CUTLER BECKETT
For which the punishment, regrettably,
is *also* death. Perhaps you remember
a certain pirate named Jack Sparrow.


ELIZABETH SWANN
*Captain* Jack Sparrow.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Captain Jack Sparrow. Yes, I thought
you might.


BLACK PEARL

[views of rigging ropes and blocks aboard a ship at night]


[Gibbs walks the deck alone at night, singing and drinking from
a bottle]

GIBBS
Fifteen men on a dead man's chest.
Yo ho ho, and a *bottle* of rum. Drink
and the devil had done for the rest.
Yo ho ho, and a *bottle* of rum. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!


[a bell tolls, Gibbs is interrupted from his drinking by the
sound]

[Gibbs looks up to see a flock of crows flying in the foggy night
sky]


TURKISH PRISON

[tolling of bells, camera pans to show the crows flying toward
a coastal island]

[pinnacle-like island off the coast at night, connected to the
mainland by thin, lighted bridge]

[cages with men inside line the bridge]

[prisoners are being marched across the bridge]

[a male prisoner with bloody legs is muttering, and is dragged
across the bridge by guards]

[a crow is seen reflected in the eye of one male prisoner in
a cage, the crow attacks and pecks his eye out, he screams]


[the prisoner who was being dragged is taken down a hatch-like
door in the ground, he also screams]

[rocky shoreline, lit with torches]

[men toss caskets into the sea]

[numerous caskets are floating out to sea, vertical streaks in
the distant clouds are seen]

[a crow lands on one casket, begins pecking at the top]

[sudden gunblast from inside the casket blows the crow away,
along with much wood]

[hand holding flintlock pistol emerges, pans about, points it
at audience for a moment]

[Jack breaks out of the top of the casket, puts his captain's
hat on]

JACK SPARROW
Sorry, mate.

[Jack breaks the skeleton's leg off]

JACK SPARROW
Mind if we make a little side trip?
I didn't think so.

[Jack uses the skeleton leg as an oar, rows toward the full moon
and a waiting ship in the distance to the right of the moon]


BLACK PEARL

[Jack arrives at the Black Pearl in his coffin rowboat]

[Gibbs holds out his hand to help Jack aboard, Jack puts the
skeleton leg in Gibbs' hand]

[Cotton drapes a coat onto Jack's back]

GIBBS
Not *quite* according to plan.

JACK SPARROW
Complications arose, ensued, were overcome.


GIBBS
You got what you went in for, then?


JACK SPARROW
Mm-hmm!

GIBBS
Captain, I think the crew, meaning me
as well, were expecting something a
bit more... *shiny*. What with the Isla
de Muerta going all pear shaped, reclaimed
by the sea, and the treasure with it.


LEECH
And the Royal Navy chasing us all around
the Atlantic.

MARTY
And the hurricane!

Aye.

CREW
Aye.

Aye.

GIBBS
All in all, it's seems some time since
we did a speck of honest pirating.


JACK SPARROW
Shiny?

GIBBS
Aye, shiny.

JACK SPARROW
Is that how you're all feeling, then?
Perhaps dear old Jack is not serving
your best interests as captain?

COTTON'S PARROT
Awk! Walk the plank!

[Jack grabs his pistol and points it at the bird]

JACK SPARROW
What did the bird say?

LEECH
Do not blame the bird. Show us what
is on that piece of cloth there.


[the monkey snarls, seizes the cloth, scampers off with it]


JACK SPARROW
Ohhh!

[Jack attempts to shoot the monkey with his pistol, his pistol
misfires]

[Jack grabs a pistol from another crewman and blasts the monkey
while it's on the deck]

[the monkey drops the cloth, but is unharmed, and scurries into
the rigging]

GIBBS
Know that don't do no good.

JACK SPARROW
It does me.

[Marty picks up the cloth that the monkey dropped]

MARTY
It's a key!

JACK SPARROW
No! Much more better. It is a *drawing*
of a key.

[Jack holds up the cloth, the crew crowd forward]

[Among the crew:
Chinese man, black man with a black
beard, white bearded man with large
black hat]

JACK SPARROW
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 it is 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.
Any more questions?

MARTY
So... Do we have a heading?

JACK SPARROW
Hah! A heading. Set sail in a... mmm...
a general... in *that* way - direction.


GIBBS
Cap'n?

JACK SPARROW
Come on, snap to and make sail, you
know how this works. Come on, ?oy/?quick,
?oy/?quick, hey!

[Marty and Gibbs gather alone by the railing]

MARTY
Have you noticed lately... The captain
seems to be actin' a bit strange...
-er.

GIBBS
Settin' sail without knowing his own
headin'? Somethin's got Jack vexed.
Mark my words, what bodes ill for Jack
Sparrow bodes ill for us all.

[the Black Pearl is shown at night in a thunderstorm]



PORT ROYAL: EITC HEADQUARTERS

[a painter is painting a detail on a mural of a world map]

[a guard brings Will in manacles into Beckett's office]

GUARD
Lord Beckett. The prisoner as ordered,
Sir.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Those won't be necessary.

[Will's manacles are removed]

[Beckett pours some liquor]

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
The East India Trading Company has need
of your services. We wish for you to
act as our agent in a business transaction
with our mutual friend: Captain Sparrow.


WILL TURNER
More acquaintance than friend. How do
you know him?

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
We've had dealings in the past. And
we've each left our mark... on the other.


WILL TURNER
What mark did he leave on you?

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
By your efforts Jack Sparrow was set
free. I would like you to go to him,
and recover a certain property in his
possession.

WILL TURNER
Recover. At the point of a sword?

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
*Bargain*!

[Beckett goes over to a wooden box on a table and opens it]


LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Letters of Marque. You will offer what
amounts to a full pardon. Jack will
be free, a privateer in the employ of
England.

WILL TURNER
Somehow I doubt Jack will consider employment
the same as being free.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Freedom. Jack Sparrow is a dying breed.
The world is shrinking, the blank pages
of the map filled in. Jack must find
his place in the new world or perish.
Not unlike you, Mister Turner. You and
your fiancée face the hangman's noose.


WILL TURNER
So you get both Jack *and* the Black
Pearl.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
The Black Pearl?

WILL TURNER
The property you want that he possesses.


LORD CUTLER BECKETT
A ship? Hardly. The item in question's
considerably smaller and far more valuable.
Something Sparrow keeps on his person
at all times. A compass. Ah, you know
it. Bring back that Compass, or there's
no deal.



BLACK PEARL

[Jack is using calipers on a map, using his left hand, a "P"
brand mark is seen on his right arm]

[an hourglass is in the background, Jack taps the Compass]

[Jack looks in his bottle, turns the bottle upside-down, only
a few drops spill out]

JACK SPARROW
Why is the rum always gone?

[Jack rises to his feet, staggers]

[Jack picks up his hat off the top of a globe]

JACK SPARROW
Oh! *That's* why.

[Jack walks past the crew sleeping on hammocks, Jack is carrying
a lantern]

[some of the crew are snoring, and Cotton is among those sleeping]


JACK SPARROW
As you were, gents.

[Jack goes downstairs to the hold, an animal bleats, Jack unlocks
the door, goes in]

[Jack sees eerie filter feeder creatures festooning a beam of
wood]

[Jack spots a rack of bottles, with the bottles stored sideways
like in a wine rack]

JACK SPARROW
Ah!

[Jack pulls a sideways bottle from the rack]

[Jack pours sand out of the bottle]

[Jack drops bottle of rum in fright, the bottle breaks on the
floor]

[Jack walks over to see who spoke]

JACK SPARROW
Bootstrap. Bill Turner.

[Bootstrap looks up from where he's sitting on a barrel, crabs
scuttle across his face]

JACK SPARROW
Is this a dream?

JACK SPARROW
I thought not. If it were, there'd be
rum.

[Bootstrap immediately hands Jack a bottle of rum]

[Jack pries the bottle from Bootstrap's hand with a crackling
sound]

JACK SPARROW
I had some help retrieving the Pearl,
by the way.

[Jack tinks the lip of the bottle with his fingers, then blows
across the top of the bottle]

JACK SPARROW
Your son.

[Jack takes a drink from the bottle]

JACK SPARROW
And to what do I owe the pleasure of
your carbuncle?

JACK SPARROW
Who?

JACK SPARROW
Ah. So it's you, then. He shanghaied
you into service, eh?

[a small hermit crab scuttles by Bootstrap, on top of the barrel
where Bootstrap sits]

[Bootstrap grabs the hermit crab, pops it into his mouth, and
crunches on it]

[Jack moves his mouth, jaw, and tongue around in revulsion while
watching]

[Jack hands the bottle back to Bootstrap]

JACK SPARROW
It's funny what a man will do to forestall
his final judgment -

[Jack starts to walk off, but Bootstrap stands up at the same
time and intercepts Jack, blocking him]

JACK SPARROW
Technic -

JACK SPARROW
Yes, but the Flying Dutchman already
*has* a captain, so there's re -

JACK SPARROW
Any idea when Jones might release said
terrible beastie?

[Jack looks at the palm of his left hand, where a black spot
boils into view]

[Jack looks up, but Bootstrap has disappeared]



BLACK PEARL: ON DECK

[Jack runs across a wooden deck that has a shallow covering of
water]

JACK SPARROW
On deck all hands! Make fast the bunt
gasket! On deck! Scurry! ?Scurry-on/?Marty,
I want movement!

JACK SPARROW
*I want movement!*

GIBBS
Lift the skin up!

JACK SPARROW
All on deck! Run! And keep running!
Run as if the devil himself and itself
is upon us!

GIBBS
Do we have a heading?

JACK SPARROW
Ah! Ooh! Run! Land.

[Jack rises from where he was ducked behind the base of the mast,
sees Gibbs again]

JACK SPARROW
Oh! Euh!

GIBBS
Which port?

JACK SPARROW
Didn't say port. I said land. Any land.


[the monkey in skeleton form swings down, grabs Jack's hat]


JACK SPARROW
Agh!

[the monkey snarls at Jack, Jack snarls back at the monkey, in
imitation]

[the monkey throws Jack's hat overboard

GIBBS
Jack's hat! Bring 'er about!

JACK SPARROW
No no! Leave it! Run!

GIBBS
Back to your stations! The lot o' ya!


[Jack stands stiffly in the shadows under some steps, between
two lighted windows]

[Gibbs walks up to Jack]

GIBBS
Jack?

JACK SPARROW
Shhh!

GIBBS
For the love of mother and child, Jack,
what's coming after us?

JACK SPARROW
Nothing.

small fishing vessel

[Jack's hat floats toward a small fishing vessel around sunrise]


[a Turkish crewmember pulls Jack's hat out of the water with
a hook]

[the first sailor tries the hat on, jokingly pretending to be
a captain]

TURKISH FISHERMAN
Heh-heh-heh.?tupayHey! ?Fo
?pes ?sa ?kapazun kapitan ?de ?la ?mezande,

GREEK FISHERMAN
?Etora.

?Fetsoran ?ipitos. ?Ferinte.

[the Greek sailor takes the hat, tries it on next]

GREEK FISHERMAN
Ah! ?Vangas ?da ?eroro ###

[a large object is seeing moving underwater toward their vessel,
creating a disturbance on the ocean surface as it moves]

kapitan ###

###

[a loud thumping sound occurs, the two sailors freeze in fright]


[a third sailor sleeps on deck]

[one sailor presses the hat against the other's chest, indicating
he doesn't want it anymore]



Port Royal prison

[Will and the governor rapidly descend stone steps into the prison]


[the guard at the bottom of the steps holds a long gun with a
bayonette on the end]

CARRUTHERS
Here now. He can't be here.

CARRUTHERS
Mister Swann, -

ELIZABETH SWANN
Jack's Compass. What does Beckett want
with that?

WILL TURNER
Does it matter? I'm to find Jack and
convince him to return to Port Royal.
In exchange the charges against us will
be dropped.

WILL TURNER
Is that lack of faith in Jack, or in
me?

ELIZABETH SWANN
I have faith in you. Both of you. Where
will you find him?

WILL TURNER
Tortuga. I'll start there, and I won't
stop searching 'til I find him. And
then I intend to return here, to marry
you.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Properly?

WILL TURNER
Eagerly, if you'll still have me.

ELIZABETH SWANN
If it weren't for these bars I'd have
you already.

[the governor accidentally knocks a candleholder off the wall]


[the governor tosses the candleholder aside, onto the floor]


ELIZABETH SWANN
I'll wait for you.

WILL TURNER
Keep a weather eye on the horizon.


[Will walks back up the prison steps]

Tortuga

WEATHERED SAILOR
*Captain* Jack Sparrow? Owes me four
dubloons. Heard he was dead.

HALF-BLIND FISHERMAN
Singapore. That's what I heard. Drunk
with a smile on his face. Sure as the
tide, Jack Sparrow... will turn up in
Singapore.

[Scarlett is a redhead, Giselle is a blonde, both are standing
together, answering Will's questions]

GISELLE
Jack Sparrow!

SCARLETT
I haven't seen 'im in a month.

GISELLE
When you find him, will you give him
a message?

[Giselle slaps Will in the face]

[a black man who is a shrimper is sitting on a dock, mending
his nets]

[in the background is a bunch of bananas on the dock, and a goat
being loaded aboard a ship]

SHRIMPER
Cannot say about Jack Sparrow. But dere's
a island, just south of de straits,
where I trade spice for... mmm... delicious
long pork. Cannot say about Jack. But
you find a ship dere. A ship wit' black
sails.

CANNIBAL ISLAND
beach

[Black Pearl seen stranded on a beach, through a spyglass]

SHRIMPER
My brother will take you ashore.

[the shrimper's brother is rowing Will toward the shore]

[the rower stops rowing]

WILL TURNER
What's wrong? The beach is right there.


SHRIMPER'S BROTHER
?: Ne bougeais pas, c'est trop dangereux.


WILL TURNER
What?

SHRIMPER'S BROTHER
?: Je ne peux, c'est trop dangereux,
j'avais le dit. Bon voyage, monsieur.


[Will jumps off the rowboat, swims ashore, wearing his sword]


[aerial view, flying over jungle toward beach, showing Will wading
ashore]

[Will walks alongside the Black Pearl, which is tied with ropes
to stakes in the sand]

WILL TURNER
Jack! Jack Sparrow!

WILL TURNER
Marty! Cotton! Anybody?

[Will wanders into the palm jungle bordering the beach]

[Cotton's parrot flutters up and lands atop a palm stump]

COTTON'S PARROT
Awk!

WILL TURNER
Ah! A familiar face!

COTTON'S PARROT
Rawk! Don't eat me!

WILL TURNER
I'm not gonna eat you.

COTTON'S PARROT
Don't eat me! No! Don't eat me! Akkk!


[Will finds Gibbs' husk canteen hanging on a plant, trailing
a long string]

WILL TURNER
Gibbs.

[Will follows the string attached to the canteen, over toward
a large tree]

[human eyes open in the background, from a man camouflaged against
a nearby tree]

[the camouflaged cannibal shouts and jumps out from the tree
at Will]

[Will is yanked back by a snare, and dangles upside-down from
a rope]

[cannibals charge out of the bushes from all directions, Will
keeps them at bay with his sword]

WILL TURNER
Euh! Unh! Ya! Come on! Let's go! Euh!
Ya! Come on! Who wants it? Unh! I could

[one cannibal is wearing an English white wig and using a Western
style fan]

?
Hurry-hurry tan daga!

[Will is brought before Jack, who sits on a throne]

[the music stops, Jack pops his eyes open, revealing that his
closed eyelids were painted to look like open eyes]

WILL TURNER
Jack? Jack Sparrow! I can honestly say
I'm glad to see you!

[Jack says nothing, arises from his throne, walks over to Will]


[Jack pushes one finger into Will's shoulder, as if testing how
much meat Will has on him]

WILL TURNER
Jack! It's me! Will Turner!

JACK SPARROW
?: Wa-say kohn.

?
Een dah-lah. Eeseepi.

CANNIBAL CROWD
Eeseepi.

WILL TURNER
Tell 'em to let me down.

JACK SPARROW
Kay-lay lam. Lam piki-piki. Lam eensy
weensy. Lam say-say... eunuchy. Snip-snip.


CANNIBAL CROWD
Ahhh... eunuchy!

[Jack begins to walk away, as if disinterested, his Compass hangs
from his waist]

WILL TURNER
Jack! The Compass! That's all I need,
Elizabeth is in danger. We were arrested
for trying to help *you*. She faces
the gallows!

[Jack halts, pauses, turns around and casually walks back]

JACK SPARROW
Say-say lam shoop-shoop sha smalay-lama
shoo-koo. Savvy? Ball licky-licky.


Ball licky-licky!

JACK SPARROW
Save me!

WILL TURNER
Jack, what did you tell them? No! What
about Elizabeth? *Jack...!*

[Will is carried across a rope bridge, still hanging underneath
the bamboo pole]

Port Royal

[Elizabeth sits alone in her prison cell, male prisoners in the
next cell whistle and beckon her]

PRISONERS
...we don't bite...Come on...


] Prisoners: Where you goin'...?)

ELIZABETH SWANN
Why don't you tell me what's happening?


ELIZABETH SWANN
No! Will has gone to find Jack!

ELIZABETH SWANN
He's a better man than you give him
credit for.

[a horse and carriage are waiting, the governor opens the door
to the carriage for Elizabeth]

ELIZABETH SWANN
A fair trial for Will ends in a hanging.


[the horse and carriage quickly ride off]

[the horse and carriage arrive at a dock]

[Captain Hawkins stands silently on the dock facing out to sea]


[the captain's body soon falls, revealing Mercer, who was standing
behind the body, long knife in hand]

MERCER
Evening, Governor. Shame, huh? He was
carryin' this. It's a letter to the
King. It's from *you*.

[horses and soldiers arrive to cut off the governor from fleeing
from the dock]

[the carriage door is opened, but the carriage is empty, Elizabeth
is gone]

MERCER
Where is she?

[Mercer grabs the governor by the lapels, pushes him up against
the side of the carriage]

PORT ROYAL
EITC headquarters

[darkened room]

[Beckett walks in from the balcony, carrying a lantern]

[Beckett walks to a table, opens a wooden box, finds the Letters
of Marque missing]

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
No doubt you've discovered that loyalty
is no longer the currency of the realm,
as your father believes.

[Elizabeth slips into the dark room from an interior door, hands
held behind her]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Then what is?

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
I'm afraid that *currency* is the currency
of the realm.

ELIZABETH SWANN
I expect then that we can come to some
sort of understanding. I'm here to negotiate.


LORD CUTLER BECKETT
I'm listening.

[Elizabeth pulls a pistol, points it at Beckett's head]

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
I'm listening *intently*.

ELIZABETH SWANN
These Letters of Marque, they are signed
by the King?

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Yes, and they're not valid until they
bear my signature and my seal.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Or else I would not still be here. You
sent Will to get you the Compass owned
by Jack Sparrow. It will do you no good.


LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Do explain.

ELIZABETH SWANN
I have been to Isla de Muerta, I have
seen the treasure myself. There is something
you need to know.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Ah, I see. *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. So perhaps
you may wish to enhance your offer.


[Elizabeth cocks her pistol]

[Beckett signs the document]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Consider into your calculations that
you robbed me of my wedding night.


LORD CUTLER BECKETT
So I did. A marriage interrupted. Or
fate intervenes. You make great efforts
to ensure Jack Sparrow's freedom.


ELIZABETH SWANN
These aren't going to Jack.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Oh really. To ensure Mister Turner's
freedom, then? I'll still want that
Compass. Consider that in your calculations.


Longboat

[Ragetti appears to be reading a Bible in the back of the longboat,
but the Bible is upside-down]

RAGETTI
Well I say it was divine providence
what escaped us from jail.

PINTEL
And I say... it was me bein' *clever*.
Ain't that right, poochie?

[the dog goes to the bow, looking forward, keys in its mouth]


RAGETTI
?: Well how'dya know it ?weren't/?wasn't
divine providence what inspired you
to *be* clever? Anyways, I ain't stealin'
no ship.

PINTEL
It ain't stealin'. It's *salvagin'*!
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
Pretendin' to read the Bible's a *lie*!
*That's* a mark against ya! Look! There
it is!

[the dog jumps overboard and swims toward shore]

RAGETTI
What's got into *'im*?

PINTEL
Must've seen a catfish. Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh.


[both laugh, the dog reaches shore and looks back at them]

RAGETTI
Stupid mongrel!

[the dog on shore shakes off water, looks back at them, still
holding keys in its mouth]

[their boat capsizes in a wave, they wade ashore]

CANNIBAL ISLAND
beach

...

PINTEL
Come on! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha. Ha-ha-ha-ha...
###

PINTEL
It's ours for the taking!

RAGETTI
Tide's comin', that should help. Well,
salvagin' is saving, in a manner of
speaking.

PINTEL
There's the truth of *it*! ###

[cannibal drums sound]

RAGETTI
Suppose we be'er... save it as soon
as we can. What with our souls in such
a vulnerable state, and all.

PINTEL
Amen to that.

[the dog barks]

CANNIBAL ISLAND
throne

[cannibal drums are pounding]

[Jack is on the throne, a cannibal hands Jack a necklace of human
toes]

JACK SPARROW
Thank you.

[Jack looks at the toe, bites off part of the nail to trim it]


[Jack spits out the piece of nail, reexamines the toe]

CANNIBAL ISLAND
cages

[two spherical cages of six Black Pearl crewmen apiece hang from
ropes over a deep chasm]



[Will is in the same cage with Gibbs, Cotton, Marty, and two
others]

WILL TURNER
Why would he do this to us? If Jack
is their chief.

GIBBS
Aye, the Pelegostos made Jack their
chief. But he only remains chief as
long as he *acts* like a chief.

WILL TURNER
So he had no choice. He's a captive
then as much as the rest of us.

GIBBS
Worse... as it turns out. See, the Pelegostos
believe that Jack is a *god* in human
form, and they intend to do him the
honor of releasing him from his fleshy
prison.

[Cotton bites Gibbs' fingers to illustrate]

GIBBS
?Argh! They'll roast him and eat him.


WILL TURNER
Where's the rest of the crew?

GIBBS
These cages we're in... weren't built
'til *after* we got here.

[Will was gripping the bars made of human bones, but quickly
pulls his hand away]

GIBBS
The feast is about to begin. Jack's
life will end... when the drums stop.


WILL TURNER
Well, we can't just sit here and wait
then, can we?

CANNIBAL ISLAND
throne

[cannibal drums are pounding]

JACK SPARROW
?No/?Oup! No no! ?Oy!/?Wait! No no!
More wood! Big fire! *Big* fire! I am
chief! Want big fire! Come on!

JACK SPARROW
?Oy!/?Boy! Maboogie snickel-snickel.
Tout de suite! Come on! More wood!


[the cannibal standing next to Jack leaves to put more wood on
the fire]

[the cannibals put large pieces of wood on the fire]

[the cannibals turn around to find that Jack is gone]

CANNIBAL ISLAND
Jack

[Jack is running across a foot bridge]

[Jack runs up to a cliff edge, totters at the edge, looking down]


[Jack examines a length of bamboo pole he finds lying there]


[Jack goes into a hut, sees various supplies, the sound of buzzing
flies is heard]

[Jack picks up a rope, starts to exit, halts, looks back inside]


[Jack goes back in, picks up a can of paprika with the EITC logo
on the bottom]

[Jack walks outside the hut, the entire tribe is waiting silently
outside, staring at him]

JACK SPARROW
Oh bugger.

[Jack drops his coil of rope, sprinkles paprika on his armpits]


JACK SPARROW
Little seasoning. Eh?

[Jack is now tied up to a bamboo pole and hanging face down over
a pile of wood]

[cannibals are dancing wildly]

JACK SPARROW
Well done.

CANNIBAL ISLAND
cages

[the men begin swinging the cages with increasingly wide arcs]


[both cages finally come within reach of the cliff, they grab
vines and hang on to the cliff]

GIBBS
Put your legs through, start to climb!
Agh!

WILL TURNER
Come on men! It'll take all ?of-us/?the-rest
to crew the Black Pearl!

LEECH
Actually, you won't need everyone. 'Bout
six would do! Ohhh... dear.

[Gibbs nods]

WILL TURNER
Hurry!

[each cage group begins racing against each other up the cliff]


Come on! Go! Go! Go!

Come on! Give it all you got!

[a cannibal crosses the rope bridge]

Hey! Hey ###

WILL TURNER
Stop!

Stop! Stop!

Shhh! Shhh!

[the cannibal crosses rope bridge]

LEECH
Shhh!

[one cage group decides to take the risk of climbing, despite
the nearby cannibal]

What's he doing?

Stop!

...

[one of the men in the climbing cage grabs a coral snake from
the cliff instead of a vine] [p. 50]

[when the man holding the snake lets go, their cage falls, the
rope breaks, and their cage falls to the bottom]

?WILL TURNER
?Move!

CANNIBAL ISLAND
throne

[drums pounding, a cannibal crosses a bridge to the bonfire area]


Ahhh! Fye-fye!

CANNIBAL CROWD
Ahhh! Fye-fye!

[the cannibal from the bridge arrives to tell the tribe of the
men in cages escaping]

?Da ?latazo! ?Da ?litozo! Hay la paka say-say.

[the crowd stands silently, not knowing whether to stay or to
chase the escapees]

JACK SPARROW
Well, go on! Go get them! Hay ala!


CANNIBAL CROWD
Hay ala!

Ala, ala!

[cannibals run off to chase after men who escaped from cages]


[in their haste one cannibal drops a lighted torch need the pile
of wood under Jack]

JACK SPARROW
No! No no! Oy! No no!

[the edges of the wood begin to catch fire]

JACK SPARROW
Not good.

[Jack blows futilely at the igniting wood]

CANNIBAL ISLAND
cage

[the remaining cage reaches the top of the cliff]

WILL TURNER
Cut it loose! Find a rock!

[Will manages to sever the cage's cable by hammering it with
a rock]

[the men in Will's cage are unable to the cage open in time before
the cannibals will reach them]

WILL TURNER
Roll the cage!

[the cage rolls down the hill]

[the cage falls over the edge of a tiny cliff]

[the cage rolls down the hill, rolls up a coconut palm trunk,
crashes to the ground, unbroken]

WILL TURNER
Lift the cage! Hurry!

GIBBS
Come on, men! Lift it like a lady's
skirt!

[the men begin running with their legs protruding from the cage,
holding up the cage]

[Marty's short legs make a running motion but are unable to reach
the ground]

Come on!

CANNIBAL ISLAND
hut



[Jack is running off with the bamboo pole tied to his back]


[Jack encounters the cannibal boy, standing silently with a fork
and a knife, one in each hand]

[Jack grabs the knife from the boy, and begins cutting his rope
off]

[two cannibal women appear]

[Jack charges, but the bamboo pole on his back spears a coconut
in a pile near the cliff edge]

[Jack turns suddenly, which flings the coconut off the end of
the pole into a cannibal's face]

[the cannibal slowly lifts the dripping coconut off his face,
scowling at Jack]

CANNIBAL ISLAND
cage

[the cage rolls over a ledge into a small chasm holding a river]


[cannibals throw spears and shoot arrows at the men in the water,
the men swim underwater]

...

GIBBS
This way, lads!

...

CANNIBAL ISLAND
Jack

[the two cannibal women throw numerous fruits at Jack while the
pole is still on his back]

[several of the fruits become impaled along the pole, making
Jack look like he's part of a shish-ka-bob]

?CANNIBAL BOY
Da litozo! Da litozo!

...

...

[Jack pole vaults across the chasm, barely lands on the other
edge safely]

[but the fruit slides down to the end of his pole, putting weight
on the end over the chasm]

[Jack falls into the chasm, screaming]

[Jack's pole catches between the two walls of a chasm]

[two native women watch Jack fall into the chasm, with disinterest]


CANNIBAL WOMAN
?A-geev-nee. Uh-boogie?

[the two cannibal women walk off, disinterested]

JACK SPARROW
Bugger.

[Jack's pole slips loose, he falls into the chasm, screaming]


[As Jack falls through the first rope bridge, the rope comes
undone but is still attached to the bamboo pole and to Jack]


[Jack is hung upside-down in the chasm when the bamboo pole catches]


[Jack falls through a total of six rope bridges]

[Jack lands on his back on grass]

[bamboo pole comes down at him, spears the ground near his head]


[fruits tumble down afterwards]

CANNIBAL ISLAND
beach

[only Ragetti and Cotton's parrot are aboard the Black Pearl,
Pintel is on the beach below]

PINTEL
?Pull-loose/?Unloose the mooring lines!
The mooring lines!

[the monkey chatters, grabs Ragetti's wooden eye]

RAGETTI
?Thief/?Thing! Little hairy ?thief/?thing!
Give it back! Don't bite it!

PINTEL
?Unloose the mooring lines!

RAGETTI
He's got me eye! He won't give it back!


PINTEL
Well, how'd you get it back last time?


GIBBS
Excellent work! Work's half done!

PINTEL
We done it for you! Knowin' you'd be
comin' back for us.

GIBBS
?Make/?Making ?ready ?to?sail/?cast-off
###, boy.

WILL TURNER
What about Jack? I won't leave without
him.

JACK SPARROW
Hey!

[Jack appears at a distance, running down the beach toward the
crew and ship]

[a crowd of cannibals suddenly run down on the beach behind Jack,
pursuing him]

WILL TURNER
Time to go.

GIBBS
*Cast off those lines!*

[Jack screams while running down the beach]

Make ready to cast off! ###!

[the dog is down the beach with Jack, barking at him]

JACK SPARROW
Good doggie! ?Doggie.

[Jack grabs ahold of rigging on the side of the departing ship]


JACK SPARROW
*Alas*, my children! This is the day
you shall always remember as the day
that you almost -

[big wave splashes Jack from behind]

JACK SPARROW
...Captain Jack... Sparrow.

[the crowd of cannibals falls silent as the ship leaves]

[the dog barks excitedly at the departing ship]

[all heads in the crowd of cannibals turn toward the dog]

[the dog falls silent, whimpers, then flees back down the beach]


[the cannibals chase the dog, shouting]

Black Pearl

GIBBS
Let's put some distance between us and
this island, and head out to open sea.


JACK SPARROW
Yes to the first, yes to the second,
but only insofar as we keep to the shallows
as much as possible.

GIBBS
Uh, that seems a bit contradictory,
Captain.

JACK SPARROW
I have every faith in your reconciliatory
navigational skills, Master Gibbs, now
where is that monkey? I want to shoot
*something*.

[the monkey screams, drops Ragetti's eye, Ragetti grabs his eye,
spits on it, rubs the spit around on it]

[the monkey chatters and climbs into the rigging]

[Jack is ready to shoot the monkey with his pistol]

WILL TURNER
Jack.

JACK SPARROW
Ah.

WILL TURNER
Elizabeth is in danger.

JACK SPARROW
Have you considered keeping a more watchful
eye on 'er? Maybe just lock her up somewhere.


WILL TURNER
She *is* locked up, in a prison, bound
to hang for helping *you*!

JACK SPARROW
There comes a time when one must take
responsibility for one's mistakes.


[Will pulls a sword from the waistband of a pirate who is turned
around, points it at Jack]

WILL TURNER
I need that Compass of yours, Jack.
I must trade it for her freedom.

[Jack pushes Will's sword aside]

JACK SPARROW
Mister Gibbs!

GIBBS
Cap'n.

JACK SPARROW
We have a need to travel upriver.

GIBBS
By need, d'you mean a... trifling need,
?uh/?a... fleeting, as in say in a passing
fancy?

JACK SPARROW
No, a... resolute and unyielding need.


WILL TURNER
What we need to do is make sail for
Port Royal with all haste.

JACK SPARROW
William... I shall trade you the Compass,
if you will help me... to find *this*.


WILL TURNER
You want me to find this?

JACK SPARROW
No. *You* want you to find this. Because
the finding this finds you incapacitorially
finding and/or locating and your discovering
the detecting of a way to save your
?dolly/?dotty belle ol'... what's-her-face.
Savvy?

WILL TURNER
This... is going to save Elizabeth?


JACK SPARROW
How much do you know about Davy Jones?


WILL TURNER
Not much.

JACK SPARROW
Yeah, it's gonna save Elizabeth.

Edinburgh Trader

[a crewman swabbing the deck happens to notice a white dress
tucked in a corner, pulls it out]

[the crewmen are arguing loudly about the newfound dress]

BELLAMY
What's all this? If you both fancy the
dress, you'll just have to share, and
wear it one after the other.

BURSAR
It's not like that, Sir. This ship is
haunted.

BELLAMY
Is it now? 'N' you?

QUARTERMASTER
The... female presence... amongst us,
yes... all the men... they can feel
it.

The ghost of a lady, widowed before her marriage, I figure it.
Searching for her husband, lost at sea.

A virgin, too, likely as not.

And that bodes ill by all accounts.

BURSAR
I say... that we throw the dress overboard,
and we hope the spirit finds it.


QUARTERMASTER
No! That - that will just anger the
spirit, Sir. What we need to do is find
out what the spirit needs, and then
just get it back!

BELLAMY
Enough! Enough! You're a pair of superstitious
goats and it's got the best of you.
Now this appears to be no more as we
have a stowaway aboard. A young woman,
by the look of it. I want you to search
the ship and find 'er. Oh, and uh...
she's probably naked.

[the crew enthusiastically rushes off in search of the stowaway]


Pantano River

[aerial view of the mouth of the Pantano River, two longboats
are beginning their way up the river]

[the longboats are in a swampy area with twisted roots]

WILL TURNER
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 creature with giant tentacles
that suction your face clean off. And
drag an entire ship past the crushing
darkness. The Kraken!

[Marty turns around at mention of the word, Pintel and Ragetti
look at each other]

GIBBS
They say the stench of its breath is
like - ooh! 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 TURNER
And the key will spare him that?

GIBBS
Now that's the very question Jack wants
answered. Bad enough even to go visit...
*Her*.

WILL TURNER
Her?

GIBBS
Aye.

BAYOU
Tia's shack

[bayou with fireflies, and an iguana on a tree trunk on the left]


[the iguana eats a firefly with a quick slurping sound]

[people are occasionally seen standing quietly in the darkness
among the trees]

JACK SPARROW
No worries, mates. Tia Dalma and I go
way back. Thick as thieves. Nigh inseparable
we are. Were. Have been. Before.


GIBBS
I'll watch your back.

JACK SPARROW
It's me front I'm worried about. Mind
the boat.

GIBBS
Mind the boat.

?WILL TURNER
Mind the boat.

PINTEL
Mind the boat.

MARTY
Mind the boat.

COTTON'S PARROT
Awk! Mind the boat!

[Cotton is left alone in the longboat]

[Jack cautiously enter's Tia's shack, pushing the door open slowly]


[near the inside of the shack door hangs a live snake, moving
slowly]

[Tia is sitting at a table, looks up from her crab claws, sees
Jack in the doorway]

TIA DALMA
Jack Sparrow!

JACK SPARROW
Tia Dalma!

TIA DALMA
I always know de wind was goin' blow
you back to me one day.

[Tia sees Will standing in the doorway, goes up to him]

TIA DALMA
You. You have a touch of... destiny
about *you*, William Turner.

WILL TURNER
You know me?

TIA DALMA
You want to know *me*.

JACK SPARROW
There'll be no knowing here. We've come
for help and we're not leaving without
it.

JACK SPARROW
I thought *I* knew you.

TIA DALMA
Not so well as I had hoped. Come.

JACK SPARROW
Come.

TIA DALMA
What... service... may I do you? Hmmm?
You know I demand payment.

JACK SPARROW
I brought payment.

[Jack whistles once, a crewmember brings in the monkey in a cage]


JACK SPARROW
Look!

[Jack cocks his pistol, shoots the monkey, the bullet has no
effect, but the monkey chatters in fright]

JACK SPARROW
An undead monkey! Top that!

[Tia lifts the cage door, the monkey scampers off]

GIBBS
No! You've no idea how long it took
us to catch that.

TIA DALMA
The payment is fair.

JACK SPARROW
We're looking for this. And what it
goes to.

TIA DALMA
The Compass you bartered from me. It
cannot lead you to dis?

JACK SPARROW
Maybe. Why?

TIA DALMA
Ayeee... Jack Sparrow does not know
what he wants! Or... do know, but are
loathe to claim it as your own. 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.

[a jar of eyeballs is hanging next to Ragetti's face as he speaks]


TIA DALMA
You know of... Davy Jones, yes? A man
of de sea. A great sailor, until he
ran afoul of dat which vex all men.


WILL TURNER
What vexes all men?

TIA DALMA
What, indeed.

GIBBS
The sea?

PINTEL
Sums!

RAGETTI
Dichotomy of good and evil.

JACK SPARROW
A *woman*.

TIA DALMA
A wo-*man*. He fell in love.

GIBBS
No-no-no-no, I heard it was the *sea*
he fell in love with.

TIA DALMA
Same story, different versions, and
all are true. See, it was a *woman*,
as changing, and harsh, and untamable
as the sea. Him never stopped loving
her. But the pain it cause 'im was too
much to live wid. But not enough to
cause him to die.

WILL TURNER
What... exactly did he put into the
chest?

TIA DALMA
Him heart.

RAGETTI
Literally, or figuratively?

PINTEL
He couldn't li'erally put his heart
in a chest! Could he?

TIA DALMA
It was not wort' feeling what... small
fleeting joy life brings, and so...
he carved out him heart, lock it away
in a chest, and hide de chest from de
world. De keys, he keep wid him at all
times.

WILL TURNER
You knew this.

JACK SPARROW
I did not. I didn't know where the key
was. But now we do. So all that's left
is to climb aboard the Flying Dutchman,
grab the key, you go back to Port Royal
and save your bonnie lass, hey!

TIA DALMA
Let me see your hand.

[Jack shows his right hand is untouched, but Tia unwraps the
bandage on his left hand]

[the black spot on Jack's left hand is revealed]

GIBBS
Uhhh! The black spot!

[Gibbs quickly wipes his hands on his chest, spins around once
to the left, and spits]

Black spot!

Black spot!

[Pintel and Ragetti copy Gibbs' ritual, in synchrony]

JACK SPARROW
My eyesight's as good as ever, just
so you know.

[pushing aside cloth door beads, Tia goes into a back room, and
searches for something]

TIA DALMA
I am justMy little ###, where
are you? ###

[Jack steals a ring off of one of Tia's tables, beside the ring
is a silver locket]

[Tia comes back with an object from the back room]

TIA DALMA
Davy Jones cannot make port. Cannot
step on land but once every ten years.
Land is where you are safe, Jack Sparrow.
And so you will carry land wid you...


[Tia hands Jack a jar of dirt]

JACK SPARROW
Dirt. This is a jar of dirt.

TIA DALMA
Yes?

JACK SPARROW
Is the... jar of dirt going to help?


TIA DALMA
If you don' want it, give it back.


JACK SPARROW
No.

TIA DALMA
Den it helps.

WILL TURNER
It seems... we have a need to find the
Flying Dutchman.

[Tia is sitting, she holds several crab shells between her cupped
hands and closes her eyes]

TIA DALMA
A touch... of destiny!

[Tia throws the crab claws down on the table to see how they
fall]

[fade to aerial view of rocky islands whose positions match the
positions of the crab claws]

Black Pearl

[pan beyond the rocks to the Black Pearl just offshore, in stormy
weather]

[the Black Pearl crew look at the scuttled ship on the rocks]


WILL TURNER
That's the Flying Dutchman? She doesn't
look like much.

JACK SPARROW
Neither do you. Do *not* underestimate
her.

[Jack gives Gibbs a meaningful glance, elbows Gibbs]

GIBBS
Must've run afoul of the reef.

JACK SPARROW
So what's your plan, then?

WILL TURNER
I row over, search the ship until I
find your bloody key.

JACK SPARROW
And if there are crewmen?

WILL TURNER
I cut down anyone in my path.

JACK SPARROW
I like it. Simple, easy to remember.


RAGETTI
Your chariot awaits you, sire! Ha, ha-ha-ha,
ha-ha!

JACK SPARROW
Hey! If you *do* happen to get captured,
just say Jack Sparrow sent you to settle
his debt! Might save your life!

RAGETTI
Bon voyage! Ha-ha-ha!

JACK SPARROW
Douse the lamps.

[Marty douses a lamp, then Cotton douses a lamp, then Pintel
douses a lamp]

[Will sets off in a rowboat, alone, toward the scuttled ship]


SCUTTLED SHIP
before attack

[Will goes aboard the ship, lantern in hand]

[Will passes one dead crewman at deck level, proped up behind
net-like rigging]

[Will comes across a wounded sailor, who seems to be in shock]


[the wounded sailor is pulling on a pulley desperately, muttering
to himself]

WOUNDED SAILOR
...up the...

WILL TURNER
Sailor!

WOUNDED SAILOR
...the stench...capsized...

WILL TURNER
Sailor!

WOUNDED SAILOR
...bring a...

WILL TURNER
There's no use. You've run aground.


WOUNDED SAILOR
No! Beneath us! Foul breath!

[behind Will, a crewmember's body falls from a height, splashing
into the water]

[Will goes to investigate]

WILL TURNER
Hey! Hey!

[Will turns the man's body over to see his face]

[the man's face is gone, his face is just a puckered piece of
skin, which bulges outward]

[the real Flying Dutchman suddenly rises from the sea, nearby
the scuttled ship]

[the sea creature-like crew emerge from the surfaces of the Flying
Dutchman]

[crewmembers from the Flying Dutchman attack the remaining crew
of the scuttled ship]

GREENBEARD
Down on your marrowbones, and pray.


[Will engages in a swordfight against several invaders]

[Will dips his sword in oil, causing it to flame, and waves it
at the men surrounding him]

WILL TURNER
Get back! Back!

[Will slices open the stomach of one of the invaders, fish spill
out of it onto the deck]

[Will battles the invading crewmembers, but one of them knocks
Will unconscious]

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.

SCUTTLED SHIP
after attack

[the prisoners of the scuttled ship cower in fear, lined up,
sitting in a row on deck along the railing]

[Jack is at the end of the row of five survivors total, on the
right-side when facing the survivors]

[Davy Jones stomps aboard with his peg leg, underwater view of
his departing feet]

[Maccus is on deck, turned so that his back is shown, showing
lobster legs on his back]

MACCUS
Five men still alive. The rest have
moved on.

[Jones pauses to clench his left hand, which is a large lobster
claw]

[Jones casually lights a pipe in front of one of the cowering
crewmen]

DAVY JONES
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-uh.

CHAPLAIN
Don't listen to him!

[Jones walks over to the chaplain, takes the chaplain's head
in his claw]

DAVY JONES
Do you not fear death?

CHAPLAIN
I'll take my chances, Sir.

DAVY JONES
To the depths.

[the chaplain's throat is slit, two crewmembers throw his body
overboard]

Ah, ha-ha-ha...!

[unidentified crewman] Cold blooded - !

DAVY JONES
Life is cruel. Why should the afterlife
be any *different*? I offer you a choice.
Join my crew, and postpone the judgment.
One hundred years before the mast. Will
ye serve?

HELMSMAN
I - I will, serve.

DAVY JONES
?Grand.

[Jones looks pleased, then sees Will at the end of the line of
people]

[Jones stomps over to Will]

DAVY JONES
*You* are neither dead nor dying. What
is your purpose here?

WILL TURNER
Jack Sparrow sent me to settle his
debt.

DAVY JONES
What is your purpose here?

WILL TURNER
Jack Sparrow. He sent me to settle his
debt.

DAVY JONES
Huh! Did he, now? I'm sorely tempted
to accept that offer.

[through a spyglass, Jack sees Jones turn to look directly at
him]

Black Pearl

[suddenly Jones is standing aboard the Black Pearl, directly
in front of Jack and his spyglass]

[Cotton and Gibbs have knives to their throats from other Flying
Dutchman crewmembers who teleported over]

JACK SPARROW
Oh.

DAVY JONES
You have a debt to pay. You've been
captain of the Black Pearl for thirteen
years. *That* was our agreement.

JACK SPARROW
Technically, I was only captain for
two years, then I was viciously mutinied
upon.

DAVY JONES
Then you were a poor captain, but a
*captain* nonetheless! Have you not
introduced yourself all these years
as *Captain* Jack Sparrow?

JACK SPARROW
You have my payment. One soul to serve
on your ship is already over there.


DAVY JONES
One soul is not equal to another.

JACK SPARROW
Aha! So we've established my proposal
is sound in principle, now we're just
haggling over price.

DAVY JONES
Price? Pttt!

JACK SPARROW
Just how many souls do you think my
soul is worth?

DAVY JONES
One hundred souls, three days-uh.

JACK SPARROW
You're a diamond, mate. Send me back
the boy, I'll get started right off.


[Maccus blocks Jack from exiting]

DAVY JONES
I keep the boy. A good-faith payment.
That leaves you only ninety-nine more
to go. Ha ha! Ha ha! Ha ha!

JACK SPARROW
Have you not met Will Turner? He's noble,
heroic, *terrific* soprano. Worth at
least four... maybe three and a half.
And did I happen to mention... he's
in love. With a girl. Due to be married.
Betrothed. Dividing him from her and
her from him... would only be half as
cruel as actually allowing them be joined
in holy matrimony. Aye?

DAVY JONES
I keep the boy. Ninety-nine souls-uh.
But I wonder, Sparrow, can you live
with this? Can you condemn an innocent
man - a friend-uh - to a lifetime of
servitude, in your name while you roam
free?

JACK SPARROW
Yep! I'm good with it. Should we seal
it in blood? I mean... mm-mm - ink?


[Jones grabs Jack's hand, resulting in a squishy sound]

JACK SPARROW
Uh!

DAVY JONES
Three days. Three days.

[Pintel whimpers, with a knife held to his neck from a crewmember
of Jones' ship]

[Jack looks at his hand, it's covered with slime, but the black
spot disappears under the effect of the slime]

JACK SPARROW
Oh, Mr. Gibbs.

GIBBS
Aye.

JACK SPARROW
Uh, I feel sullied and unusual.

GIBBS
And how do you intend to harvest these
ninety-nine souls in three days?

JACK SPARROW
Fortunately, he was mum as the condition
in which these souls need be.

GIBBS
Ah... Tortuga!

JACK SPARROW
Tortuga.

Edinburgh Trader

[inside a cabin aboard the Edinburgh Trader, Captain Bellamy
is throwing documents down on the table]

BELLAMY
It's an outrage. Port tariffs, berthing
fees, *wharf* handling, and heaven help
us, pilotage. Are we all to work for
the East India Trading Company, then?


QUARTERMASTER
I'm afraid, Sir... Tortuga is the only
free port left in these waters.

BELLAMY
A *pirate* port is what you mean. Well,
I'm sorry. An honest sailor is what
I am. I make my living fair, and I sleep
well each night, thank you.

[a white dress floats by the cabin window, outside]

BURSAR
S-S-Sir!

[they all rush to the window of the cabin and look out]

[they all see the dress float by the cabin window, on its second
pass]

[one crewman gasps]

[the men go outside to see the dress that was floating by the
window]

[the dress floats like a ghost, its left arm raised as if pointing]


BURSAR
She wants you to... do something.


BELLAMY
She's tryna give a sign.

[the dress sweeps over a lantern, knocking it over and part of
the deck ignites]

BELLAMY
Over there! Look for a sign!

[the crew rush to the railing and look out at the sea]

[Elizabeth, up on the mast overhead, sighs in exasperation]


QUARTERMASTER
Look there! There it is. There's the
sign.

?BURSAR
That's seaweed.

QUARTERMASTER
S-Seaweed can be a sign.

?BURSAR
Looks like entrails.

?That ?would be a bad sign.

ELIZABETH SWANN
What's that over there?

[Elizabeth is now sitting on a platform on the deck behind the
men, pointing at the deck where the lantern fell]

[the men at the railing turn around and look where Elizabeth
is pointing]

[the fire burning on the desk spells out "Tortuga" in fiery letters]


Tortuga

[men are tied up with ropes alongside a well, camera pans past
the well]

[a man is tied up and being dunked in the well, and is spouting
water from his mouth]

[crowded tavern, glass bottles are being shot off of people's
heads for entertainment]

[a duo of musicians is playing a guitar and accordion]

GIBBS
And what makes you think you're worthy
to crew the Black Pearl?

ELDERLY MAN
Truth be told, I never sailed a day
in me life. I figure I should get out
and see the world while I'm still young.


GIBBS
You'll do. Make your mark. Next!

JILTED MAN
My wife ran off with my dog. And I'm
drunk for a month. And I don't give
a ass rat's if I live or die.

GIBBS
Perfect! Next!

ONE-ARMED MAN
Me have one arm, 'n' a bum leg.

GIBBS
It's the crow's nest for you.

[Jack is sitting alongside a wall, within earshot of Gibbs' table,
trying to make his Compass work]

JACK SPARROW
I know what I want.

GIBBS
Next!

ROMANTIC MAN
Ever since I was a little lad, I've
always wanted to sail the seas. Forever.


GIBBS
Sooner than you think. Sign the roster.


ROMANTIC MAN
Thanks very much.

JACK SPARROW
How we going?

GIBBS
Including those four? That gives us
- four!

[to the next candidate in line]

GIBBS
And what's *your* story?

NORRINGTON
My story... it's exactly the same as
your story, just one chapter behind.
I chased a man across the Seven Seas.
The pursuit cost me my crew, my commission,
and my life.

GIBBS
Commodore?

NORRINGTON
No, not anymore, weren't you *listening*?
I nearly had you all, off Tripoli. I
would have, if not for the... hurricane.


GIBBS
Lord. You didn't try to sail through
it?

NORRINGTON
So do I make your crew, or not? You
haven't said where you're going. Somewhere
*nice*!

[unidentified woman] Oh!

[the music stops, everyone stares at the altercation]

[Jack grabs a branch from a vase, carries it in front of his
face, attempts to walk out unseen]

NORRINGTON
So am I *worthy* to serve under Captain
Jack Sparrow?

[Norrington spots Jack sneaking off behind him, points a pistol
at Jack]

NORRINGTON
Or should I just kill you now?

[Jack ducks back and forth behind both sides of a large post,
as Norrington points his pistol at Jack]

JACK SPARROW
You're hired.

NORRINGTON
Sorry. Old habits and all that.

[unidentifed man, to Norrington] Easy, sonny!

[someone deflects Norrington's pistol upwards as it fires]

[the ball richochets off the chandelier, breaking a man's bottle
as he's drinking from it]

[the man whose bottle broke slugs a man next to him]

[the music starts back up as a brawl ensues]

[one man swings from chandelier, women fight, bottles are thrown
against the wall, etc.]

JACK SPARROW
Time to go?

GIBBS
Aye!

[a swordfight is going on]

[someone throws a bottle against the wall above the stairs, Jack
ducks as it smashes above his head]

[Jack makes his way upstairs, trading hats a few times along
the way]

JACK SPARROW
Thanks, mate.

[Jack slaps him on the shoulder, the man falls backwards off
the balcony]

[Jack halts to let two men carrying another man proceed towards
the edge of the balcony]

JACK SPARROW
Carry on.

Heave!

[the two men throw the carried man off the balcony, then Jack
continues on his way]

[the music stops, Norrington threateningly holds a bottle in
his left hand]

NORRINGTON
Come on, men! Who wants some? Form an
orderly line, I'll have you all one
by one. Come on, who's first?

[from behind, Elizabeth grabs the bottle from Norrington, smashes
it over his head, knocking him out]

ELIZABETH SWANN
I just wanted the pleasure of doing
that myself!

[the crowd cheers, and everyone holds up their mugs in a toast]


[men throw Norrington into the mud with some pigs, the crowd
leaves except for Elizabeth]

[Elizabeth turns Norrington over, onto his back]

ELIZABETH SWANN
James Norrington. What has the world
done to you?

[Mercer observes Elizabeth and Norrington from the doorway of
the tavern]

Flying Dutchman

[Jones plays his pipe organ with his tentacles, steam coming
from pipes]

[the crew are on desk, slaving away, pulling rhythmically on
a rope]

Heave! Heave! Heave! Heave! Heave! Heave!

...

BO'SUN
Secure the mast tackle, Mister Turner!


BO'SUN
Step ?to-it/?tight!

[Will goes to grab a rope]

WILL TURNER
Step aside!

BO'SUN
?Regain-?yourselves!/?Mind-?yourself!


###

[Bootstrap sees that the other man at the rope is his son, Bootstrap
is stunned]

[Bootstrap lets go of the rope, Will attempts to grab the sliding
rope]

[the cannon's rope drags Will across the deck]

[the hoisted cannon crashes to the deck, and the organ music
stops]

BO'SUN
Haul that weevil to his feet!

[the crew haul Will to his feet]

BO'SUN
Five lashes to remind you... to stay
on 'em!

BO'SUN
Impeding me in my duties. You'll share
the punishment.

DAVY JONES
Will you now? And what would prompt
such an act of charity?

DAVY JONES
Ha ha ha ha! Ha ha! What fortuitous
circumstance be this! Five lashes be
owed. I believe it is.

[Jones hands the whip to Bootstrap, Jones' tentacle curls around
the shaft of it]

DAVY JONES
The cat's out of the bag, Mister Turner.
Your issue will feel its sting be it
the Bo'sun's hand, by your own.


DAVY JONES
Bo'sun!

[Bootstrap reluctantly takes the whip]

[two crewmen tear Will's shirt off, exposing his bare back]


[Bootstrap whips Will's back five times]

[Will is tossed into a lower part of the deck, partially filled
with water]

[Will stands up, wearing an intact white shirt]

BO'SUN
You had it easy, boy! Ha ha ha!

WILL TURNER
I don't need your help!

WILL TURNER
So I'm to understand what *you* did
was an act of compassion?

FLYING DUTCHMAN
below deck

[Bootstrap and Will enter the interior of the ship together]


[crewmember Wyvern is seen to their right, encrusted into the
interior side of the hull, standing up]

WILL TURNER
I've sworn no oath.

WILL TURNER
Not until I find this. The key.

[Wyvern's eyes open in the coral-encrusted wall at the mention
of the key]

[Wyvern, who is part of the wall, breaks his head away from the
wall, leaving his brains behind]

WYVERN
The deadman's chest.

WILL TURNER
What do you know of this?

WYVERN
Open the chest with the key, and stab
the heart. No-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 TURNER
So the captain has the key.

[Wyvern retracts his head back into the wall, having said too
much]

WILL TURNER
Where *is* the key?

WYVERN
Hidden.

WILL TURNER
Where is the chest?

WYVERN
Hidden.

[Wyvern closes his eyes, and falls silent]

Black Pearl

[the Black Pearl is at a dock, loading fruits and livestock]


[Jack and Gibbs are walking together, Elizabeth approaches from
behind, still dressed as a man]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Captain Sparrow!

JACK SPARROW
Come to join me crew, lad? Welcome aboard.


ELIZABETH SWANN
I'm here to find the man I love.

JACK SPARROW
I'm deeply flattered, son, but my first
and only love is the sea.

[Norrington vomits over the side]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Meaning William Turner, Captain Sparrow.


JACK SPARROW
Elizabeth. Hide the rum.

[Gibbs takes the bottle that Jack hands to him, and walks up
the boarding plank in the background]

JACK SPARROW
You know, these clothes do not flatter
you at all. It should be a dress or
nothing. I happen to have no dress in
my cabin.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Jack. I know Will came to find you.
Where is he?

JACK SPARROW
Darling, I am truly unhappy to have
to tell you this but... through an unfortunate
and *entirely* unforeseeable series
of circumstances that have nothing whatsoever
to do with me, poor William has been
press-ganged into Davy Jones' crew.


ELIZABETH SWANN
Davy Jones?

[Norrington vomits over the side, then spits]

NORRINGTON
Oh, please. The captain of the Flying
Dutchman.

JACK SPARROW
You look bloody awful. What are you
doing here?

NORRINGTON
You *hired* me. I can't help it if your
standards are lax.

JACK SPARROW
You *smell* funny.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Jack. All I want is to find Will.

JACK SPARROW
Are you certain? Is that what you really
want most?

ELIZABETH SWANN
'Course.

JACK SPARROW
Because I would think, you'd want to
find a way to *save* Will the most.


ELIZABETH SWANN
And you have a way of doing that?

JACK SPARROW
Well, there is a chest...

NORRINGTON
Oh, dear.

JACK SPARROW
A chest of unknown size and origin.


[Pintel & Ragetti walk by, together carrying a crate of bottles,
and overhearing the conversation]

PINTEL
What contains the still-beating heart
o' Davy Jones.

RAGETTI
Unh-unh... unh-unh... unh-unh...

JACK SPARROW
And whoever possesses that chest possesses
the leverage to command Jones to do
whatever it is he or she wants, including...
saving brave William from his grim fate.


NORRINGTON
You don't actually believe him, do you?


ELIZABETH SWANN
How do we find it?

JACK SPARROW
With this. My Compass... is unique.


NORRINGTON
"Unique" here having the meaning of
broken.

JACK SPARROW
True enough. This Compass does not point
north.

[Norrington vomits over the side]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Where does it point?

JACK SPARROW
It points to the thing you want most
in this world.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Oh Jack! Are you telling the truth?


JACK SPARROW
Every word, love. And what you want
most in this world is to find the chest
of Davy Jones, is it not?

ELIZABETH SWANN
To save Will?

JACK SPARROW
By finding the chest of Davy Jones.


[Jack hands the compass to Elizabeth, then draws away quickly
so as not to influence the compass]

[Elizabeth consults the compass, for her the dial clearly points
in a specific direction]

[Jack slowly rises up to peer at the face of the compass]

JACK SPARROW
Mister Gibbs!

GIBBS
Cap'n.

JACK SPARROW
We have our heading.

GIBBS
Finally! Cast off those lines, weigh
anchor, and prow that canvas!

JACK SPARROW
Miss Swann.

GIBBS

PORT ROYAL
EITC headquarters

[Beckett and Mercer are in a room with the governor, whose hands
are in shackles]

[Mercer is looking through a mounted telescope to outside the
window]

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
There's something to knowing the exact
shape of the world and one's place in
it, don't you agree?

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
I had you brought here because I thought
you'd be interested in the whereabouts
of your daughter.

MERCER
Most recently seen on the island of
Tortuga, then left, in the company of
a known pirate, Jack Sparrow. *And*
other fugitives from justice.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Including the previous owner of this
sword... I believe. Our ships are in
pursuit. and justice will be dispensed
by cannonade and cutlass, and all manner
of remorseless pieces of metal. I personally
find it distasteful to even contemplate
the horror facing all those on board.


LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Your authority as governor, your influence
in London, and your loyalty to the East
India Trading Company.

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
Shall I remove these shackles?

LORD CUTLER BECKETT
So you see, Mercer, every man has a
price he will willingly accept. Even
for what he hopes never to sell.

[slow motion scene of falling dice]

[three crewman are playing Liar's Dice]

[organ music is heard in the background]

MACCUS
I wager... ten years.

?KOLENIKO
I'll match ten years.

GREENBEARD
Agreed.

WILL TURNER
I understand.


Liar!)

WILL TURNER
It's a game of deception. Your bet includes
all the dice, not just your own.

WILL TURNER
What are they wagering?

WILL TURNER
So any crewman can be challenged?

WILL TURNER
I challenge Davy Jones.

[immediately the organ music ceases, immediately Jones' peg leg
is heard thumping in approach]

[with each thump of his footstep, gooseneck barnacles retract]


[someone laughs]

DAVY JONES
I accept ?that-uh.

[Jones sits down at the gambling table]

DAVY JONES
The stakes?

WILL TURNER
My soul. An eternity of servitude.


DAVY JONES
Against?

WILL TURNER
I want this.

[Jack shows Jones the picture of the key]

DAVY JONES
How do you know of the key?

WILL TURNER
That's not part of the game, is it?
You can still walk away.

[One of Jones' tentacles pulls out the key from his vest to display
it]

[the tentacle puts the key back]

[Bootstrap sits down at the table]

DAVY JONES
What's this?

WILL TURNER
No! Don't do this.

DAVY JONES
Four fours.

WILL TURNER
Four fives.

DAVY JONES
Seven fives-uh.

WILL TURNER
Eight fives.

DAVY JONES
Huh huh huh. Welcome to the crew, liar.


DAVY JONES
And be called a liar myself for my trouble?
Bootstrap Bill, you're a liar and you
will spend an eternity on this ship!
Master Turner, feel free to go ashore...
the very next time we make port!


WILL TURNER
Fool. Why did you do that?

WILL TURNER
It was never about winning, or losing.

[Will emerges from a hatch on deck]

[Will sneaks past one one the crew on deck, who is sleeping with
a bottle in his hand]

[Jones is asleep at his organ, snoring]

[Will sneaks into his room, behind him]

[Will grabs a nearby quill pen, uses it to lift one of Jones'
tentacles]

[one tentacle accidentally falls on an organ key, almost waking
up Jones]

[the falling tentacle also sets off a locket on top of the organ,
that plays a song]

[Will holds one of the staves in his mouth while lifting the
tentacles]

[Will finally removes the key, replaces it with his drawing of
the key]

WILL TURNER
It's not a fate you had to choose for
yourself, either.

WILL TURNER
They'll know you helped me.

WILL TURNER
I take this with a promise. I'll find
a way to sever Jones' hold on you. And
not rest until this blade pierces his
heart. I will not abandon you. I promise.


[Will sets out alone on a longboat]

Black Pearl

[crewmen are scrubbing the deck of the Black Pearl]

GIBBS
Beckett!

ELIZABETH SWANN
Yes, they're signed, Lord Cutler Beckett
of the East India Trading Company.


JACK SPARROW
Agh.

GIBBS
Will was working for Beckett, and never
said a word.

JACK SPARROW
Agh.

GIBBS
Beckett wants the Compass. Only one
reason for that.

JACK SPARROW
Of course. He wants the chest.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Yes, he did say something about a chest.


GIBBS
If the company controls the chest, they
controls the sea.

JACK SPARROW
A truly discomforting notion, love.


GIBBS
And bad. Bad for every mother's son
what calls himself a pirate. I think
there's a bit more speed to be coaxed
from these sails. Brace the foreyard!


JACK SPARROW
Might I inquire how as to how you came
by these?

ELIZABETH SWANN
Persuasion.

JACK SPARROW
Friendly?

ELIZABETH SWANN
Decidedly not.

JACK SPARROW
Will strikes a deal for these and upholds
it with honor. Yet you're the one standing
here with the prize. Full pardon, commission
as a privateer on behalf of England
and the East India Trading Company.
As if I could be bought for such a low
price.

[Jack tucks the Letters into his coat and begins to walk away]


ELIZABETH SWANN
Jack, the Letters, give them back.


JACK SPARROW
No. Persuade me.

ELIZABETH SWANN
You do know Will taught me how handle
a sword.

JACK SPARROW
As I said... Persuade me.

[Elizabeth walks away frustrated, leans on the ship's railing]


[Jack makes an odd grunting noise]

[Norrington walks up to Elizabeth at the railing]

NORRINGTON
It's a curious thing. There was a time
when I would've given anything for you
to look like that while thinking about
me.

ELIZABETH SWANN
I don't know what you mean.

NORRINGTON
Oh, I think you do.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Oh, don't be absurd. I trust him, that's
all.

NORRINGTON
So you never wondered how your *latest*
fiancé ended up on the Flying Dutchman
in the first place?

Edinburgh Trader

BELLAMY
Strange thing to come upon a longboat
so far out in open waters.

WILL TURNER
Just put as many leagues behind us as
you can. As fast as you can.

BELLAMY
And what are we running from?

[Will sees Elizabeth's white wedding dress on a chair in the
cabin]

WILL TURNER
That dress. Where did you get it?

BELLAMY
It was found aboard the ship. The crew
it thought it was a spirit bringing
some omen of ill fate.

WILL TURNER
That's foolish.

QUARTERMASTER
Oh, yes. ?Proceededly foolish.

BURSAR
It brought good fortune! The spirit
told us... Put in at Tortuga. And we
made a nice bit of profit there.

?BELLAMY
Off the books, of course.

WILL TURNER
I imagine... some of your crew may have
jumped ship there.

BELLAMY
Why do you ask?

MESSENGER SAILOR
Captain, a ship's been spotted.

BELLAMY
Colors?

MESSENGER SAILOR
She isn't flyin' any.

BELLAMY
Pirates!

Or worse.

You will watch this.

the Kraken summoning device]

DAVY JONES
Let no joyful voice be heard! Let no

[the Kraken calling device thumps heavily against the sea]

Edinburgh Trader

[crewmen on board the Edinburgh Trader rush to the railing, chattering,
to see the Flying Dutchman]

[Will is on top of the mast]

WILL TURNER
I've doomed us all. It's the Flying
Dutchman!

BURSAR
Oh, Mother Cary's chickens. What happened?


?QUARTERMASTER
Must've hit a reef.

[the crew look overboard, see bubbles rising up alongside the
ship]

?BELLAMY
Free the rudder! Hard to port, then
hard to starboard!

Clear the rudder!

Hard to port!

[a Kraken tentacle silently seizes one crewman while other crewmembers
have their backs turned]

[the Kraken tentacle surfaces in the distance, holding the crewman
who was just seized, he screams]

*Kraken!*

men off the deck]

DAVY JONES
You need time alone with your thoughts.


What of the survivors?

DAVY JONES
There are no survivors.

[the remaining crewmen are simultanenously axed from behind]


[Will witnesses the axing, ducks behind a beam]

[Jones turns around, sensing Will, but sees nothing]

DAVY JONES
The chest is no longer safe. Chart a
course to Isla Cruces. Get me there
first, or there'll be the devil to pay.


KOLENIKO
First?

DAVY JONES
Who sent that thieving charlatan onto
my ship? Who told them of the key? Jack
Sparrow.

Dutchman, between the jaw formations]

[Elizabeth's wedding dress is shown underwater, sinking into
the depths of the sea]

Black Pearl

[Elizabeth is sitting on some steps on deck of the Black Pearl]


[Jack walks over to her, holding a bottle of rum]

JACK SPARROW
My tremendous intuitive sense of the
female creature informs me that you
are troubled.

ELIZABETH SWANN
I just thought I'd be married by now.
I'm so ready to be married.

[Jack offers Elizabeth a drink from his bottle]

JACK SPARROW
You know... Lizzy... I *am*... captain
of a ship. And *being* captain of a
ship, I could in fact perform a... marriage.
Right here. Right on this deck. Right...
*now*!

[Elizabeth recoils at Jack's breath on the word "now"]

ELIZABETH SWANN
No, thank you.

JACK SPARROW
Why not? We *are* very much alike, you
and I. I and you. Us.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Oh. Except for a sense of honor, and
decency and-and a moral center. And
personal hygiene.

[Jack smells his armpits]

JACK SPARROW
Trifles. You *will* come over to my
side, I know it.

ELIZABETH SWANN
You seem very certain.

JACK SPARROW
One word love: curiosity. You long for
freedom. You long to do what you want
to do because you want it. To act on
selfish impulse. You want to see what
it's like. One day, you won't be able
to resist.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Why doesn't your Compass work?

JACK SPARROW
Uh my Compass works fine.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Because you and I *are* alike, and there
will come a moment when you have a chance
to show it. To do the right thing.


JACK SPARROW
I *love* those moments. I like to wave
at them as they pass by.

ELIZABETH SWANN
You'll have the chance to do something...
something courageous. And when you do,
you'll discover something: that you're
a good man.

JACK SPARROW
All evidence to the contrary.

ELIZABETH SWANN
I have faith in you. Want to know why?


JACK SPARROW
Do tell, dearie.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Curiosity. You're going to want it.
A chance to be admired. And gain the
rewards that follow. You won't be able
to resist. You're going to want to know...
what it tastes like.

JACK SPARROW
I *do* want to know what it tastes like.


ELIZABETH SWANN
But - seeing as you're a good man I
know you will *never* put me in a position
that would compromise my honor.

[Jack stares in horror as the black spot boils back into view
on his hand, Elizabeth doesn't notice]

ELIZABETH SWANN
I'm proud of you, Jack.

?GIBBS
Land ho!

JACK SPARROW
I want my jar of dirt.

[Pintel and Ragetti are rowing a longboat with key members of
the crew inside]

[Jack in the bow, Elizabeth and Norrington are in the back]


PINTEL
You're pullin' too fast.

RAGETTI
You're pulling too slow. We don't want
the Kraken to catch us.

PINTEL
I'm savin' me strength for when it comes.
And I don't think it's Krack-en, anyways.
I always heard it said Kray-kin.


RAGETTI
What, with a long A?

PINTEL
Aye.

RAGETTI
No-no-no-no-no-no-no. Krock-en's how
it's pronounced in the original Scandinavian,
and Krack-en's closer to that.

PINTEL
Well we ain't original Scandinavians,
are we? Kray-ken!

RAGETTI
It's a mythological creature, I can
calls it what I wants.

ISLA CRUCES
beach

[their longboat arrives at the beach, Jack disembarks and begins
to walk off]

JACK SPARROW
Guard the boat, mind the tide... Don't
touch my dirt.

[Elizabeth is walking in some sand dunes near the beach, using
the compass]

ELIZABETH SWANN
This doesn't work. And it *certainly*
doesn't show you what you want most.


[Elizabeth sits down on the sand, and sets the compass down on
the sand, the needle points to her]

JACK SPARROW
Yes it *does*. You're sitting on it!


ELIZABETH SWANN
Beg your pardon?

JACK SPARROW
Move.

[they start digging under where Elizabeth was sitting]

[Pintel and Ragetti are by the boat, clowning around, Ragetti
is balancing a shovel on one hand]

PINTEL
"Mind the tide."

RAGETTI
I ?can/?may join the circus!

PINTEL
?Don't ?mind ?if I shine your shoes,
Sir?

FLYING DUTCHMAN
deck

[Jones is watching Pintel and Ragetti on the beach through a
spyglass]

DAVY JONES
They're here. And I cannot step foot
on land again for near of a decade.


MACCUS
Then trust us to act in your stead.


DAVY JONES
I'll trust you know what awaits should
you *fail*! Down, then!

[ugly, nondescript crewmember] Down!

MACCUS
Down!

[view from the deck of the Flying Dutchman as it submerges, some
underwater footage]

[Pintel and Ragetti are astounded to see the ship submerge in
the distance, Ragetti's balanced shovel falls]

[Pintel and Ragetti run off to warn the others]

###!

ISLA CRUCES
beach

[Norrington is digging in the sand, Jack sits in a lotus position
nearby on a sandy slope]

[while digging, Norrington's shovel hits something hard, they
brush off sand to reveal a chest]

[they remove the chest from the sand]

[the chest contains a pearl necklace, documents, and a smaller
chest, among other things]

[Elizabeth opens up a letter with a wax seal, and reads it to
herself]

[they all bend near to put their ears to the small chest, and
they hear a heartbeat]

ELIZABETH SWANN
It's real!

NORRINGTON
You actually *were* telling the truth.


JACK SPARROW
I do that quite a lot. Yet people are
always surprised.

WILL TURNER
With good reason!

[Will has unexpectedly appeared on the beach, walking up toward
them]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Will! You're alright! Thank God! I came
to find you!

[Will and Elizabeth kiss]

JACK SPARROW
How did you get here?

WILL TURNER
Sea turtles, mate. A pair of them, strapped
to my feet.

JACK SPARROW
Not so easy, is it?

WILL TURNER
But I do owe you thanks, Jack.

JACK SPARROW
You do?

WILL TURNER
After you tricked me onto that ship
to square your debt with Jones.

ELIZABETH SWANN
What?

JACK SPARROW
What?

WILL TURNER
I was reunited with my father.

JACK SPARROW
Oh! Well... you're welcome, then.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Everything you said to me... every
word, was a lie!

JACK SPARROW
Pretty much. Time and tide, love.


[Will stoops down with the key to open the chest]

JACK SPARROW
Oy! What're you doing?

WILL TURNER
I'm gonna kill Jones.

[Jack draws his sword, points it at Will]

JACK SPARROW
Can't let you do that, William. 'Cause
if Jones is dead, who's to call his
terrible beastie off the hunt, eh? Now.
If you please: The key.

[Will backs up slowly, then suddenly draws Elizabeth's sword,
points it at Jack]

WILL TURNER
I keep the promises I make, Jack. I
intend to free my father. I hope you're
here to see it.

[Norrington draws his sword, points it at Will]

NORRINGTON
I can't let you do that, either. So
sorry.

JACK SPARROW
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 SPARROW
Ah. The dark side of ambition.

NORRINGTON
Oh, I prefer to see it as the promise
of redemption.



ELIZABETH SWANN
Stop it!

Be careful!

[various dueling interjections]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Jack!

WILL TURNER
Guard the chest!

[duel halts for a second]

ELIZABETH SWANN
*No*!

[duel resumes]

ELIZABETH SWANN
This is bar-*baric*! This is *no* way
for grown men to settle - ! Oh! Fine!
Let's just - *pull* out our swords and
start *banging* away at each other!
*This will solve everything!* I've had
it! I've had enough! Wobbly-legged,
rum-soaked... *pirates*!

[Elizabeth throws a rock at the duelists, but the rock goes far
to the left of them]

PINTEL
How'd this go all screwy?


Enough!)

RAGETTI
Well, each wants the chest for hisself,
don't 'e? Mister Norrington, I think
he's tryna regain a bit of honor. Old
Jack's lookin' to trade it, save his
own skin. And Turner there - I figure
'e's tryna... settle some unresolved
business 'twixt him and his twice-cursed
pirate father.

PINTEL
Sad. That chest must be worth more 'n
a shiny penny.

RAGETTI
Oh! Tsk-tsk-tsk. Terrible temptation.


PINTEL
If we was any kind of *decent*, we'd
remove temptation from their path.


[Pintel and Ragetti giggle and run off to steal the small chest]


ELIZABETH SWANN
Will! *Enough!*

[Elizabeth is panting from exasperation and exhaustion]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Oh! Oh...! The heat!

[Elizabeth pretends to faint, which knocks off her hat]

[Elizabeth watches sideways as the duelists continue fighting,
oblivious to her]

[Elizabeth soon sits up, puts on her hat]

[Pintel & Ragetti run by in the distance behind her, with the
chest]

[Elizabeth sees Pintel & Ragetti, and goes to chase them]

[various duel scenes on the beach]

Bugger!

[Norrington kicks sand in Will's face]

NORRINGTON
By your leave, Mister Turner.

[Norrington runs off to chase Jack up the hill]

[the crew of Flying Dutchman emerge from the shallows]

[one crewmember holds chain shot as a weapon]

ISLA CRUCES
church

[Jack and Norrington run through bushes on the beach, then up
to a dilapidated stone church on the hill] [P2]

[Norrington chases Jack up steps inside the building, Jack kicks
Norrington back down with his foot]

[Jack and Norrington have a swordfight on the inside steps]


[Jack grabs hold of the bell rope, which carries him downward,
and carries Will upward, who just arrived]

WILL TURNER
By *your* leave, Mister Norrington.


[the Flying Dutchman crew on shore are at the large chest and
look up to the ringing bell in the building on the hill]

[while Norrington and Will are dueling on top of the roof, Jack
deftly grabs the dangling key away from Norrington's hand]


[noticing the key gone, Norrington then turns and duels with
Jack]

[soon Norrington knocks Jack's sword from Jack's hand, the sword
is flung onto the ground below]

NORRINGTON
Do excuse me while I kill the man who
ruined my life.

WILL TURNER
Be my guest.

JACK SPARROW
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!

[Jack somersaults off the roof to escape, Norrington turns to
Will]

NORRINGTON
Unfortunately, Mister Turner... He's
*right*!

[Norrington and Will resume their part of the rooftop duel]


JACK SPARROW
Still rooting for you, mate!

[Jack picks up his sword from the ground, and puts the key around
his neck]

[Jack walks through a graveyard, falls into an open grave]


JACK SPARROW
Wup!

[Jack stands up in the bottom of the hole]

JACK SPARROW
Oh.

[Norrington backs Will onto the top of the mill's waterwheel]


[the axle of the wheel breaks off with Norrington and Jack dueling
on top]

[Jack is facing the other direction, so is unaware of the freed
wheel rolling behind him]

[the wheel crashes through a small fence, turns, and rolls directly
towards Jack]

[the waterwheel rolls over Jack, and Jack is pulled into the
inside of the wheel]

JACK SPARROW
Woah!

[the key that Jack had around his neck falls off into the wheel]


[Jack struggles to grab the key, which is caught and dangling
inside the rolling wheel]

[Jack finally grabs the key, but hits his head on a metal bar
inside the wheel, and falls off the wheel]

[Pintel & Ragetti are running off with the small chest, each
holding one side, giggling]

[Elizabeth steps in front Pintel & Ragetti, confronting them,
halts, panting]

[Pintel & Ragetti drop the chest, pull their swords on Elizabeth]


[Elizabeth reaches for her sword, but it's gone]

PINTEL
'Ello, Poppet.

[Pintel & Ragetti slowly advance on Elizabeth, she slowly retreats
while facing them]

[they all pause for a moment to watch the wheel roll by with
the duel on top]

[Jack is running behind the wheel, trying to catch up and get
the key that is still inside]

[Pintel shrugs, Pintel and Ragetti resume advancing on Elizabeth]


[suddenly a thrown axe embeds itself in a coconut palm next to
Elizabeth]

[all three turn to see Jones' crew crashing through the bushes
toward them]

[swordfight ensues with the Flying Dutchmen crew and Pintel and
Ragetti]

[Norrington and Will continue fighting atop the rolling wheel]


[Jack grabs hold of a palm frond on a coconut palm while at the
top of the wheel]

[the wheel continues on, Jack hangs from the frond, then drops
to the ground]



Sword!

ELIZABETH SWANN
Sword!

[a sword is thrown to Elizabeth, just in time]

PINTEL
Sword!

[a sword is thrown to Pintel, just in time]

RAGETTI
Sword!

[a sword is thrown to Ragetti, just in time]

[Jack sees Hadrus running alone through the palms, carrying the
small chest]

[Jack picks up a coconut, whirls it a moment, then throws it
at Hadrus]

[Hadrus' (conch shell) head is knocked off by the coconut]

[Hadrus' head lies on the ground, attempting to give orders to
the rest of his body to find the head]

HADRUS
Aya! Uh ?seech! Aunido! Aunido! Follow
my voice! Follow my voice! To the left,
uh... No, to the right... Go to the
left...

[Hadrus' headless body walks into a coconut palm]

HADRUS
No... That's a tree.

JACK SPARROW
Oh, shut it.

[Jack unlocks the small chest with the key, square security bolts
suddenly protrude when opened]

[the heart is inside, beating]

[crewmen of the Flying Dutchman approach, Jack tucks the heart
into his vest]

[Elizabeth uses two swords together, one in each hand, to stab
backwards and kill two attacking crewmen]

ISLA CRUCES
beach

[Jack is the first to arrive back at the longboat on the beach]


JACK SPARROW
Jar of dirt!

[Jack opens his jar of dirt, dumps out some dirt, puts the heart
in the jar, scoops handfuls of dirt back into the jar]

[a Flying Dutchman crewmember arrives at the boat, Jack fights
him using an oar]

[the swordfight is carried to the beach as the Black Pearl crew
attempts to escape by longboat]

[Norrington arrives at the longboat, while others are fighting
he takes the heart from the jar, puts it under his vest]

[the rolling waterwheel reaches the beach, rolls out into the
shallows, falls on its side]

[Norrington and Will walk away from it, wobbling from dizziness]


WILL TURNER
Right!

[Pintel & Ragetti attempt to escape by longboat, but Will blocks
their progress]

[Pintel & Ragetti reach for their swords, to find their swords
gone]

[Pintel & Ragetti grab a fishnet and oar as weapons against Will]


PINTEL
Come on, Turner!

[Jack fights with Koleniko, using an oar, subdues him]

[Will sees the key in the chest, Jack notices Will looking at
the key and chest]

[Jack hits Will on the head with the our, which knocks him out]


JACK SPARROW
Leave him lie! Unless you plan on using
him to hit something with.

ELIZABETH SWANN
We're not getting out of this.

NORRINGTON
Not with the chest. Into the boat.


[Norrington takes the chest]

ELIZABETH SWANN
You're mad.

NORRINGTON
Don't wait for me.

JACK SPARROW
Uh, I say we respect his final wish.


PINTEL
Aye!

[the remaining Black Pearl crew escape by longboat]

[Hadrus is holding his conch shell head under one arm, the head
speaks to Norrington]

HADRUS
Your bravery is wasted. I shall pry
the chest away from your cold... dead...
hands.

[Norrington pauses, looks around]

NORRINGTON
Here you go!

HADRUS
Oo!

[Norrington flees, Hadrus drops his head onto the ground when
catching the chest]

[Hadrus' crewmates laugh and walk off with Hadrus' body, ignoring
Hadrus' head]

HADRUS
Uh! ?Ando! Aunido! Aunido! Pirates!


[the face inside Hadrus' head turns around, turns into a hermit
crab, extends its legs]

[the hermit crab head crawls after its departing body and crew]


HADRUS
?Vengo ?kowmpenay ?lachay. Hey! ?Hovaya!


Black Pearl

[Will, lying flat on the deck, head over a grate, returns to
consciousness aboard the Black Pearl]

WILL TURNER
What happened to the chest?

ELIZABETH SWANN
Norrington took it to draw them off.


PINTEL
You're pulling too hard!

RAGETTI
You're not pulling hard enough!

GIBBS
Where's the Commodore?

JACK SPARROW
He fell behind.

GIBBS
My prayers be with him. Best not wallow
in our grief. The bright side is: You're
back. And made it off free and clear.


[the Flying Dutchman suddenly surfaces alongside them]

GIBBS
Lord almighty.?us.

JACK SPARROW
I'll handle this, mate.

JACK SPARROW
Hey! Fishface! Lose something? Hey?
Oup!

[Jack falls down the stairs of the Pearl, crew says "Ooh!"]


JACK SPARROW
Got it!

[Jack stands up, struts across the deck, holding his jar of dirt]


JACK SPARROW
Come to negotiate, eh, have you, you
slimy git? Look what I got. I got a
jar of dirt! I got a jar of dirt! And
guess what's inside it?

DAVY JONES
Enough!

[the Flying Dutchman's cannon covers slide down, cannons emerge
from the holes]

JACK SPARROW
Hard to starboard.

ELIZABETH SWANN
*Hard to starboard!*

WILL TURNER
Brace up the foreyard!

GIBBS
Hard to starboard!

DAVY JONES
Send his beloved Pearl back to the depths!


?Fire!

[a heavy cannonade fires from the Flying Dutchman, blowing large
holes in the Black Pearl]

[Pintel and Ragetti look through the gaping hole in the stern,
see the Flying Dutchman following them]

?PINTEL
She's on us! She's on us!

DAVY JONES
Let them taste the triple guns.

[cage-faced crewmember] Aye, Captain.

[triple-barreled cannon fires, barrel rotates after each blast]


...

Come on, ###!

ELIZABETH SWANN
She's falling behind!

GIBBS
Aye, and we've got her!

WILL TURNER
We're the faster?

GIBBS
Against the wind the Dutchman beats
us. That's how she takes her prey. But
*with* the wind...

WILL TURNER
We rob her advantage.

GIBBS
Ah!

FLYING DUTCHMAN

DAVY JONES
They're out of range! ?Break ?out

?We giving up, Sir?

[crewmen of the Flying Dutchman are whipped to raise the Kraken
calling device]



BLACK PEARL

?MARTY
They're giving up! Yay!

[crew cheers]

WILL TURNER
My father is *on* that ship. If we
can outrun her, we can take her. We
should turn and fight.

JACK SPARROW
Why fight when you can negotiate? All
one needs... is the proper leverage.


[suddenly the Black Pearl is badly jarred]

[Jack's jar of dirt falls to the deck, breaks open, spills all
the dirt]

[Jack runs down to the spilled dirt, searches frantically for
the heart, which is gone]

JACK SPARROW
Where is it? Where is the thump-thump?


We must've hit the reef!

WILL TURNER
No. It's not a reef! Get away from the
rail!

ELIZABETH SWANN
What is it?

WILL TURNER
The Kraken. To arms!

?GIBBS
All guns, defend the masts!

WILL TURNER
?It'll ?attack the starboard. I've seen
it before. ?Break out the cannons and
hold for my signal.

[with a deep rumbling sound, the Kraken's tentacles slowly crawl
up the hull]

WILL TURNER
Easy, boys!

ELIZABETH SWANN
Will?

[the tentacles rise higher]

WILL TURNER
Steady! Steady.

ELIZABETH SWANN
Will?

[the tentacles start feeling around the ship]

WILL TURNER
Hold. Hold...

PINTEL
I think we've held fire long enough.


ELIZABETH SWANN
*Will?*

WILL TURNER
*Fire...*!

[the crew fire the cannons, hitting the tentacles and nearly
severing some]

[the Kraken sinks into the sea, some tentacles glowing from the
blast]

[the crew cheers]

WILL TURNER
It'll be back. We have to get off the
ship.

ELIZABETH SWANN
There's no boats.

[Will sees the wrecked boats, then sets his eyes on the barrels
of gunpowder]

WILL TURNER
Pull the grates! Get all the gunpowder
onto the net in the cargo hold.

[hands Elizabeth a long gun]

WILL TURNER
Whatever you do, don't miss.

ELIZABETH SWANN
As soon as you're clear.

[the crew is busy loading barrels of gunpowder from the hold]


We are short stocked on gunpowder. Six ?barrel/?below.

Bring it up!

GIBBS
There's only half a dozen kegs of powder!


WILL TURNER
Then load the rum!

[Gibbs seems shocked, then turns to see the entire crew halted,
staring at him in shocked silence]

GIBBS
Aye! The rum, too!

[the crew continues loading]

[aerial view approaching Black Pearl, zooming through the rigging
to the other side]

[Jack is in a rowboat alone, rowing away from the Black Pearl]


[Jack stops rowing, sees the Kraken with tentacles around Black
Pearl in the distance]

[Jack looks back into the direction he's headed, then consults
his Compass]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Step to!

[Elizabeth runs to the railing, sees Jack rowing away]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Oh you coward!

[another heavy thud hits the ship, crewmen shout]

MARTY
Not good.

[the Kraken attacks again]

WILL TURNER
?Pull ?away!

GIBBS
Heave! Heave like you're being paid
for it!

...

[Pintel & Ragetti stand to one side of a cannon port as a tentacle
pulls one crewmember through sideways]

...

[Will hangs onto the side of the net of gunpowder barrels, attempting
to attract the Kraken's attention]

WILL TURNER
Euh! Come on!I'm over here! Come
on!

[Will slashes at tentacles with his sword]

WILL TURNER
Shoot! Elizabeth, shoot!

[Elizabeth hesitates, waiting for Will to fall free]

[one of the Kraken's tentacles wrap around her leg and drag her
backwards, she screams]

[Ragetti chops off the end of the tentacle holding Elizabeth]


[Another crewmember picks up the rifle and attempts to shoot,
only to be grabbed by the Kraken and flung around]

[the rifle drops onto the deck above Elizabeth]

[Elizabeth tries to pick up the fallen rifle, but someone's foot
holds it down]

[she sees that it's Jack's foot, that he has returned to the
Pearl]

[Jack picks up the rifle and takes aim at the gunpowder]

[slow motion scene of Jack firing a ball into the gunpowder]


[ball whistles through the air, strikes the gunpowder, which
explodes]

[the Kraken releases its hold, burned tentacles withdraw into
the ocean, groaning sound]

MARTY
Did we kill it?

GIBBS
No. We just made it angry. We're not
out of this yet. Captain! Orders!


JACK SPARROW
Abandon ship. Into the longboat.

GIBBS
Jack! The Pearl!

JACK SPARROW
She's only a ship, mate.

ELIZABETH SWANN
He's right, we have to head for land.


PINTEL
'S a lot o' open wa'er.

RAGETTI
That's a lot o' wa'er.

WILL TURNER
We have to try. We can get away as it
takes down the Pearl.

GIBBS
Abandon ship. Abandon ship or abandon
hope.

[the crew get ready to leave the Pearl, loading supplies and
guns]

[Elizabeth approaches Jack]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Thank you, Jack.

JACK SPARROW
We're not free yet, love.

ELIZABETH SWANN
You came back. I always knew you were
a good man.

[Elizabeth passionately kisses Jack]

[Will sees the kiss from the longboat, falters]

GIBBS
Prepare to cast off! There's no time
to lose! Come on, Will, step to!

[the kiss is inturrupted by the sound of shackles, Elizabeth
has chained Jack to the main mast]

ELIZABETH SWANN
It's after you, not the ship. It's not
us. This is the only way, don't you
see? I'm not sorry.

[Elizabeth leans in as if to kiss him again.]

JACK SPARROW
Pirate.

[Elizabeth leaves Jack and climbs down into the long boat]

WILL TURNER
Where's Jack?

ELIZABETH SWANN
He elected to stay behind to give us
a chance.

[the crew look uncertain]

ELIZABETH SWANN
Go!

[the longboat casts off]

[Jack struggles with his manacles]

JACK SPARROW
Bugger, bugger, bugger, bugger, bugger,
bugger...!

[a coconut and cannonball roll by, on the tilted deck]

[Jack spots a fallen lantern, picks it up with the tip of his
sword]

[Jack breaks the lantern against the mast, pours oil over his
wrists]

[Jack struggles with slipping his hand out]

JACK SPARROW
Come on... Come on...

[Jack finally manages to slip his hands out]

[the Kraken rises up behind him]

[Jack halts, turns around, faces the Kraken]

[music and sound stop momentarily]

[the Kraken roars, spraying Jack with slime and flinging his
earlier-eaten hat to the deck]

JACK SPARROW
Not so bad.

[Jack spots his old hat lying next to his feet]

JACK SPARROW
Oh!

[Jack spots his hat, picks it up, puts it on, wipes slime from
his face]

JACK SPARROW
Hello, beastie.

[Mercer drops the Letters of Marque on Beckett's desk]

[Beckett opens the letter to look at it before looking up at
Norrington, who has been standing in the office]

NORRINGTON
I took the liberty of filling in my

[from his desk, Beckett beckons Norrington with two fingers]

BAYOU
Tia's shack

[the remaining crew paddles through the waters to Tia Dalma's
shack]

[many natives stand in the waters surrounding the shack, holding
candles, mourning Jack Sparrow]

[inside the shack, Will absent-mindedly keeps throwing his father's
knife into the table top]

[Tia carries a tray around to all of them, offers the mugs to
Elizabeth]

TIA DALMA
Against de cold... and de sorrow.

[Elizabeth takes a mug but doesn't drink]

TIA DALMA
It's a shame. I know you're t'inking

the devil and set free your fadder's
soul.

WILL TURNER
Doesn't matter now. The Pearl's gone.
Along with its captain.

[Gibbs is standing in the doorway on the side of the shack]


GIBBS
Aye. And already the world seems a bit
less bright. He fooled us all right
to the end. But I guess that honest
streak finally won out. To Jack Sparrow!


RAGETTI
Never another like Captain Jack.

PINTEL
He was a gentleman of fortune, he was.


ELIZABETH SWANN
He was a good man.

WILL TURNER
If there was anything could be done
to bring him back... Elizabeth...


TIA DALMA
Would you do it? Hmmm? What... would

Aye.

Aye.

Aye.
