Pintel Quotes:

  • Jack Sparrow: Parleley, parlelellyleloooo, par le nee, partner, par... snip, parsley...

    Ragetti: Parley?

    Jack Sparrow: That's the one. Parley. Parley.

    Pintel: Parley? Damn to the depths whatever man what thought of "Parley".

    Jack Sparrow: That would be the French.

  • Pintel: You're supposed to be dead!

    Jack Sparrow: Am I not?

  • Elizabeth: Captain Barbossa , I am here to negotiate the cessation of hostilities against Port Royal .

    Barbossa: There are a lot of long words in there, Miss; we're naught but humble pirates. What is it that you want?

    Elizabeth: I want you to leave and never come back.

    Barbossa: I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request. Means "no".

    Elizabeth: Very well. I'll drop it.

    [dangles medallion over the sea]

    Barbossa: Me holds are burstin' with swag. That bit of shine matters to us? Why?

    Elizabeth: It's what you've been searching for. I recognized the ship. I saw it eight years ago on the crossing from England .

    Barbossa: Did ya, now?

    Elizabeth: Fine. Well, I suppose if it is worthless then there's no point in me keeping it.

    [it drops a bit, the pirates lunge forward]

    Barbossa: No! Ah.


    Barbossa: You have a name, Missy?

    Elizabeth: Elizabeth... Turner. I'm a maid in the Governor's household.

    Barbossa: Miss Turner...?

    [turns to face the pirates]

    Pintel: Bootstrap.

    Barbossa: And how does a maid come to own a trinket such as that? Family heirloom, perhaps?

    Elizabeth: I didn't steal it, if that's what you mean.

    Barbossa: Very well, you hand it over and we'll put your town to our rudder and ne'er return.

    Elizabeth: [she hands it over] Our bargain?

    [Barbossa walks away from her]

    Bo'sun: Still the guns and stow 'em, Signal the men, set the flags and make good to clear port.

    Elizabeth: Wait! You have to take me to shore. According to the Code of the Order of the Brethren...

    Barbossa: First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement so I must do nothing. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the pirate's code to apply and you're not. And thirdly, the code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Miss Turner .

  • [the other pirates come upon Jack Sparrow in the cave]

    Pintel: You? You're supposed to be dead.

    Jack Sparrow: [Looks himself up and down] Am I not?

  • Pintel: [Pintel and Ragetti burst into the room] We know you're here, Poppet.

    Ragetti: Poppet.

    Pintel: Come out... and we promise we won't hurt you.

    Ragetti: Eh?

    Pintel: [smiles at Ragetti] We will find you, Poppet. You've got something of ours, and it calls to us. The gold calls to us.

    Ragetti: Gold calls...

    Pintel: [opens door of the closet] 'Ello, Poppet.

    Elizabeth: Parlay!

    Ragetti: What?

    Elizabeth: Parlay. I invoke the right of parlay. According to the Code of the brethren, set down by the pirates Morgan and Bartholomew , you have to take me to your Captain.

    Pintel: I know the code.

    Elizabeth: If an adversary demands parlay you can do them no harm until the parlay is complete.

    Ragetti: To blazes with the code.

    Pintel: She wants to be taken to the Captain. And she'll go without a fuss. We must honor the Code.

  • Will Turner: You knew my father.

    Pintel: Old Bootstrap Bill? Aye, we knew 'im. Never sat well with ol' Bootstrap, what we did to Sparrow and all. That's why he sent a piece of the treasure off to you, as it were. He said that we deserved to be cursed... and remain cursed. A' course, that didnt sit too well with the captain.

    Ragetti: No, that didn't sit to well with the cap'n at all... Tell 'im what Barbossa did.

    Pintel: [angry] I'm telling the story. So, what Barbossa did is, he tied a cannon to Bootstrap's bootstraps.

    Ragetti: [snickering quietly] Bootstrap's bootstraps...

    Pintel: And the last we saw of ol' Bill Turner, he was sinkin' into the crushing black oblivion of Davy Jones' Locker. Course, it was only after that we learned we needed his blood to lift the curse.

    Ragetti: Now that's what you'd call ironic.

    Ragetti: [Ragetti and Pintel laugh]

  • [Pintel and Ragetti are causing a distraction by wearing women's clothing while the pirates plan an attack]

    Ragetti: Yoo-hoo.

    Pintel: Stop it. I already feel like a fool.

    Ragetti: Look nice, though.

    Pintel: [Chuckles, then stops and becomes angry] I "LOOK NICE"?

  • [Elizabeth in rowing boat heading toward shore]

    Elizabeth: Bloody pirates!

    [back aboard the Dauntless, Ragetti sees the Pearl sailing away]

    Ragetti: Is it supposed to be doing that?

    Pintel: They're stealing our ship.

    Ragetti: Bloody pirates!

  • Pintel: If anyone so much as mentions the word 'parley', I'll have their guts for garters

  • Pintel: You'll be dining with the captain. And he requests you wear this.

    Elizabeth: Well you may tell the captain that I am disinclined to acquiesce to his request.

    Pintel: He said you'd say that. He also said that if that be the case, then you'll be dining with the crew. And you'll be naked.

    [looks at him in disgust and hastily grabs dress]

    Pintel: Fine.

  • Elizabeth: [when Pintel and Ragetti finds her hiding in the closet] Parley!

    Pintel: [pauses] What?

    Elizabeth: Parley. I invoke the right of parley. According to the Code set down by the pirates Morgan and Bartholomew says you have to take me to your captain.

    Pintel: I know the Code.

    Elizabeth: Then it would state that if one demands parley you can do them no harm until the parley is complete.

    Ragetti: Blazes to the Code!

    Pintel: She wants to be taken to the captain! And she'll go without a fuss. We must honour the Code.

  • Pintel: No reason to fret, just a prick of the finger, a few drops of blood...

    Twigg: No mistakes this time. He's only half Turner, we spill it all.

    Pintel: I guess there is reason to fret.

  • [Barbossa is giving orders and Jack repeats the order]

    Barbossa: What are you doin'?

    Jack Sparrow: What are *you* doin'?

    Barbossa: No, what *are* you doin'?

    Jack Sparrow: What are *you* doin'?

    Barbossa: *No!* What *are* you doin'?

    Jack Sparrow: What are *you* doin'? Captain gives orders on the ship.

    Barbossa: The captain of the ship *is* givin' orders.

    Jack Sparrow: My ship, makes me captain.

    Barbossa: They be my charts!

    Jack Sparrow: Well, that makes you


    Jack Sparrow: chartman.

    Pintel: Stow it! Both of you! That's an order! Understand?

    [Jack and Barbossa stare at him]

    Pintel: Sorry. I just thought with the Captain issue in doubt, I'd throw my name in for consideration, sorry.

    Ragetti: [to Pintel] I'd vote for you.

  • [Everybody on the Black Pearl tries to shoot each other... and fails]

    Gibbs: Wet powder!

    [Everyone gets down to sailing the ship, crisis over... ]

    Pintel: Wait! We can still use them as clubs!

    [Ragetti tries this idea out by whacking Pintel]

    Pintel: OW!

    Ragetti: Sorry. Effective, though.

  • [Teague beckons forth the dog with the keys, last left on the cannibal island]

    Ragetti: Is that... can't be.

    Pintel: How?

    Captain Teague: Sea turtles, mate.

  • Pintel: Those aren't pieces of eight. They're just pieces of junk!

    Gibbs: Aye, the original plan was to use nine Pieces of Eight to bind Calypso, but when the first court met the Brethren were, to a one, skint broke.

    Pintel: So change the name!

    Gibbs: What, to "Nine Pieces of Whatever We Happen To Have in Our Pockets At The Time"? Oh yes, that sounds very piratey!

  • Pintel: [there is nothing to drink] No water. Why is all but the rum gone?

    Gibbs: Rum's gone too.

  • Barbossa: [of releasing Calypso] It must be said as if speaking to a lover.

    [Pirates grin and nudge each other]

    Barbossa: [loud and commanding] Calypso! I release you from your human bonds!

    Pintel: [nothing happens] Is that it?

    Ragetti: You didn't say it right!

    [all the pirates stare at him]

    Ragetti: You have to say it right...

    [Ragetti leans into Calypso's ear]

    Ragetti: [whispers tenderly] Calypso... I release you from your human bonds.

    [Calypso is freed]

  • [Poking around the carcass of the Kraken lying on the shore]

    Pintel: Stupid fish!

    Ragetti: Actually, it's a cephalopod.

  • Captain Barbossa: [playing with his monkey] Oh, yes, you sho shweet! You rooby-rooby-roo! Oh, yes, you shooo...

    Pintel: Um, Captain... me, and the crew... were thinking it wasn't right to leave Captain Jack behind...

    Ragetti: Again.

    Pintel: ...again.

    Captain Barbossa: Relax, me mateys! Look at this!

    [flourishes Sao Feng's map]

    Captain Barbossa: There's more'n one way to live forever. Soon, we shall be drinking of the Fountain of Youth...

    [discovers a hole in the map, rendering it worthless]

    Captain Barbossa: Sparrow!

  • [as the ship is rocking]

    Pintel: He's rocking the ship!

    Ragetti: We'll tie each other to the mast upside down so when the boat flips we'll be the right way up!

  • Pintel: No one said anything about cold.

    Ragetti: I'm sure there must be a good reason for our suffering.

    Pintel: Why don't that Obeah woman bring Jack back the same way she brought back Barbossa?

    Tia Dalma: Because Barbossa was only dead. Jack Sparrow is taken body and soul to a place not of death, but of punishment, the worst fate a person can bring upon himself stretching on forever. That's what awaits at Davy Jones' locker.

    Ragetti: Well, I knew there was a good reason.

  • [in Davy Jones' Locker, hundreds of souls pass by]

    Pintel: Eerie... That's downright "macabrey".

  • Pintel: You know you can't read.

    Ragetti: It's the bible, you get credit for tryin'.

  • Tia Dalma: The Pearl's gone, along with its captain.

    Gibbs: And already the world seems a little 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...

    Tia Dalma: Would you do it? What would any of you do? Would you sail to the ends of the earth and back to fetch back witty Jack, and him precious Pearl?

    GibbsRagettiPintel: Aye!

    Elizabeth Swann: Yes.

    Tia Dalma: All right. But if you will brave the weird and haunted shores at world's end, then you will need a captain who knows those waters.

    Barbossa: [enters] So tell me, what's become of my ship?

  • Gibbs: [Tia Dalma just uncovered Jack's Black Spot] The Black Spot!

    [he does a strange superstitous dance]

    Ragetti: The Black Spot!

    Pintel: Black Spot!

    [Pintel and Ragetti do the same dance]

    Jack Sparrow: My eyesight's as good as ever, just so you know.

  • Pintel: ...I always heard it said "kray-kin"

    Ragetti: What? With a long A?

    Pintel: Uh-huh.

    Ragetti: Na-na-na-na-no-no no "Krah-ken"'s how it's pronounced in the original Scandinavian, and "Krakken"'s closer to that.

    Pintel: Well we ain't original Scandinavians, are we? Kray-kin.

    Ragetti: It's a mythological creature, I can calls it what I wants!

  • Pintel: [watching Norrington, Will and Jack fight whilst Elizabeth is screaming and throwing rocks] How'd this go all screwy?

    Ragetti: Well, each wants the chest for hisself, don't 'e? Mr. Norrington, I think, is trying to regain a bit of honor. Old Jack's looking to trade it, save his own skin. And Turner there, I think 'e's trying to settle some unresolved business twixt him and his twice-cursed pirate father.

    Pintel: Sad.

  • Ragetti: [studies his upside-down Bible intently, then looks up] Well, I say it was Divine Providence what escaped us from jail.

    Pintel: And *I* say it was me bein' clever.

    [turns to the dog with the keys]

    Pintel: Ain't that right, Poochie?

    Ragetti: Well, how'd you know it weren't Divine Providence what inspired you to *be* clever?

  • Jack Sparrow: No worries! Tia Dalma and I go way back... thick as thieves, nigh inseparable we are... were... have been... before...

    Gibbs: I'll watch yer back.

    Jack Sparrow: It's me front I'm worried about.

    Gibbs: [to Will] Mind the boat.

    Will Turner: [to Ragetti] Mind the boat.

    Ragetti: [to Pintel] Mind the boat.

    Pintel: [to Marty] Mind the boat.

    Marty: [to Cotton's parrot] Mind the boat.

    Cotton's Parrot: [to Cotton] Mind the boat.

    [It flies off, leaving Cotton to pout and sit back down in the boat]

  • Pintel: Haul loose the mooring line!

    Ragetti: He's got me eye! He won't give it back.

    Pintel: Well how'd you get it back last time?

  • Tia Dalma: You know of Davy Jones? A man of the sea, a great sailor. Until he run afoul of that which vexes all men.

    Will Turner: What vexes all men?

    Tia Dalma: What indeed.

    Gibbs: The sea?

    Pintel: Sums?

    Ragetti: The dichotomy of good and evil?

    Jack Sparrow: A woman.

    Tia Dalma: A woman. He fell in love.

    Gibbs: No, no, I heard it was the sea he fell in love with.

    Tia Dalma: [annoyed] 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 caused was to much to live with, 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 literally put his heart in a chest. Could he?

    Tia Dalma: It was not worth feeling what small, fleeting joy life brings.

  • Ragetti: Salvaging is saving, in a manner of speaking.

    Pintel: There's the truth of it!

  • [repeated line]

    Pintel: You're pulling too hard.

    Ragetti: You're not pulling hard enough.
