Gibbs: Now, what's the nature of this venture you are in?
Jack: I'm going after the Black Pearl. I know where it's going to be and I'm gonna take it.
Gibbs: Jack, it's a fool's errand. Well, you know better than me the tales of the Black Pearl?
Jack: That's why I know what Barbossa is up to. All I need is a crew.
Gibbs: From what I hear tell of Captain Barbossa, he's not a man to suffer fools norstrike a bargainwith one.
Jack: Well, then I'd say it's a very good thing I'm not a fool then, aye.
Gibbs: Prove me wrong. What make's ye think Brabossa will give up his ship to you?
Jack: Let's just say it's a matter of leverage, aye?
Gibbs: The kid?
Jack: That is the child of Bootstrap Bill Turner. His only child, savvy.
Gibbs: Is he now? "Leverage", says you. "I think I feel a change in the wind," says I. I'll find us a crew. There'sbound tobe some sailors on this rock crazy as you.
Jack: One can only hope. Take what you can.

Gibbs:Feast your eyes, Captain. All of them, faithful hands before the mast. Every manworth his salt. And crazy to boot.

Jack: Mr.Cotton's parrot! Same question.
Parrot: Wind in the sails! Wind in the sails!
Gibbs: Mostly, we figure that means "yes".
Jack: Of course it does. Satisfied?
Will: Well, you've proved they're mad.
