Was just chatting with someone about Pirates of the Caribbean and remembered how I’ve always liked this scene in Curse of the Black Pearl – because it’s flat-out hilarious. And nowadays I think I have a renewed appreciation for the scene and for Elizabeth’s sentiments in it.
(Whee, look at the fancy colour editing~~ lol. )
Jack Sparrow: [Wakes up and sees Elizabeth burning the rum] No! Not good! Stop! Not good! What are you doing? You burned all the food, the shade… the rum!
Elizabeth: Yes, the rum is gone.
Jack Sparrow: Why is the rum gone?
Elizabeth: One: because it is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels. Two: that signal is over a thousand feet high. The entire royal navy is out looking for me, do you think there is even the slightest chance they wont see it?
Jack Sparrow: But why is the rum gone?
“…because it is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels.” From what I can recall of various parties, I think I stand in accord with Miss Swann. hahaha
