Pirates of the Carribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
written by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio, screen story by Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, Stuart Beattie, and Jay Wolpert
Jack Sparrow: The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can't do. For instance, you can accept the fact that your father was a pirate and a good man or you can't. But pirate is in your blood, boy, so you'll have to square with that someday. And me, for example, I can let you drown, but I can't bring this ship into Tortuga all by me onesies, savvy? So, can you sail under the command of a pirate, or can you not?
