Mr. Gibbs Quotes in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
Mr. Gibbs Quotes:
[Jack throws a bucket of water on sleeping Gibbs]
Mr. Gibbs: Curse you for breathin' ya slack-jawed idiot. Mother's love. Jack. You should know better than to wake a man when he's sleepin'. Its bad luck.
Jack Sparrow: Fortunately, I know how to counter it; the man who did the waking buys the man who was sleeping a drink; the man who was sleeping drinks it while listening to a proposition from the man who did the waking.
Mr. Gibbs: Aye, that'll about do it.
[Will throws more water on Mr. Gibbs]
Mr. Gibbs: Blast! I'm already awake!
Will Turner: That was for the smell.
Jack Sparrow: Anamaria.
[Anamaria slaps Jack]
Will Turner: I suppose, you didn't deserve that one either?
Jack Sparrow: No, that one I deserved.
Anamaria: You stole my boat!
Jack Sparrow: Actually...
Anamaria: [Anamaria slaps Jack again]
Jack Sparrow: Borrowed... borrowed without permission, but with every intention of bringing it back.
Anamaria: But you didn't!
Jack Sparrow: You'll get another one.
Anamaria: I will.
Will Turner: A better one.
Jack Sparrow: A better one.
Will Turner: That one.
Jack Sparrow: What one?
Will Turner: [Will looks at the Interceptor]
Jack Sparrow: That one? Aye, that one. What say you to that?
The Crew: Aye!
Mr. Gibbs: No, it's frightful bad luck to have a woman aboard.
Jack Sparrow: It would be far worse not to have her.
[shouting during severe storm]
Will Turner: How can we sail to an island that nobody can find with a compass that doesn't work?
Mr. Gibbs: Aye, the compass doesn't point North. But we're not trying to find North, are we?
[toasting to their new partnership]
Jack Sparrow: Take what ye can!
Mr. Gibbs: Give nothin' back!
Jack Sparrow: I thought you were supposed to keep to the code.
Mr. Gibbs: We figured they were more actual guidelines.
Young Elizabeth: [singing] Yo, ho, yo, ho/ a pirate's life for me/ Yo, ho, yo, ho/ it's a pirate's life for me/drink up me hearties, yo, ho...
Mr. Gibbs: [surprises her by coming up from behind her] Quiet, missy! Cursed pirates sail these waters. You want to call them down on us?
Norrington: [sharply] Mr. Gibbs, that will do!
Mr. Gibbs: She was singing about pirates. Bad luck to sing about pirates, with us mired in this unnatural fog... mark my words!
Norrington: Consider them marked.
Mr. Gibbs: 'Aye, Lieutenant.
[as he moves off]
Mr. Gibbs: Bad luck to have a woman on board, too. Even a miniature one.
Young Elizabeth: I think it'd be rather exciting to meet a pirate.
Norrington: Think again, Miss Swann. Vile and dissolute creatures, the lot of them. I intend to see that any man who sails under a pirate flag or wears a pirate brand gets what he deserves: a short drop and a sudden stop.
Mr. Gibbs: [Mr. Gibbs poses as if he's been hanged]
Governor Swann: Lt. Norrington, I appreciate your fervor, but I'm concerned about the effect this subject will have upon my daughter.
Norrington: My apologies, Gov. Swann.
Young Elizabeth: Actually, I find it all fascinating.
Governor Swann: Yes. That's what concerns me.
Mr. Gibbs: Then, on the fourth day, he roped himself a couple of sea turtles, lashed 'em together and made a raft.
Will Turner: He roped a couple of sea turtles.
Mr. Gibbs: Aye. Sea turtles.
Will Turner: What did he use for rope?
Jack Sparrow: [from beside them] Human hair.
Jack Sparrow: From my back.
Elizabeth: Lower the anchor on the right side.
Anamaria: [looks stunned]
Elizabeth: On the starboard side!
Will Turner: It has the element of surprise.
Anamaria: You're daft lady. You both are!
Mr. Gibbs: Daft like Jack.
[turns to the crew]
Mr. Gibbs: Lower the starboard anchor!
[crew looks reluctant]
Mr. Gibbs: Do it you gobs! Or it's you we'll load into the cannons.
Jack Sparrow: You, sailor.
Mr. Gibbs: Cotton, sir.
Jack Sparrow: Mr. Cotton. Do you have the courage and fortitude to follow orders and stay true in the face of danger and almost certain death?
Jack Sparrow: Mr. Cotton. Answer, man.
Mr. Gibbs: He's a mute, sir. Poor devil had his tongue cut out, so he trained the parrot to talk for him. No one's yet figured how.
Jack Sparrow: Mr. Cotton's... parrot. Same question.
Parrot: [squawk] Wind in the sails. Wind in the sails.
Mr. Gibbs: Mostly, we figure, that means 'yes.'
Anamaria: You're daft, lady! You both are!
Mr. Gibbs: Daft like Jack.
Mr. Gibbs: The kid's a bit of a stick, isn't he?
Jack Sparrow: You have no idea.
Mr. Gibbs: We should drop canvas, sir.
Jack Sparrow: She can hold a bit longer.
Mr. Gibbs: What's in your head, Captain, that puts you in such a fine mood?
Jack Sparrow: We're catching up.
Young Elizabeth: Boy! There's a boy in the water!
[Everyone leans over and sees an unconscious Will]
Norrington: MAN OVERBOARD! Haul him in.
[They pull Will aboard]
Norrington: [sighs] He's still breathing.
Mr. Gibbs: Mary, mother of God!
[Everyone looks in the distance, where a destroyed British ship is in flames]
Mr. Gibbs: Leverage, says you. I think I feel a change in the wind, says I.
Parrot: Shiver me timbers.
Mr. Gibbs: Cotton 'ere says you missed a bit.
Mr. Gibbs: Curse ya for breathin', ya slack-jawed idiot!
Elaine Harper: Now, wait a minute! Listen! You can't marry me one minute and throw me out of the house the next.
Mortimer Brewster: I am not throwing you out of the house, I am not throwing you out of the house! Will you get out of here?
[pushes her out and slams the door; Mr. Gibbs is standing on the porch holding a newspaper]
Elaine Harper: Mortimer!
Mortimer Brewster: [picks up the phone] I'm sorry, Judge. But a thing happened. Look, Judge... About Teddy... you see, he's...
Elaine Harper: Mortimer!
Mortimer Brewster: [into the phone] You see, Judge, it's his bugle blowing. Yes, the neighbors have been complaining, and the police are all set to throw him into a state institution.
Elaine Harper: How do you like that...
Mr. Gibbs: I read an ad here about a room to rent...
Elaine Harper: Oh, shut up!
