Elizabeth Swann:[kneeling in the pigsty] James! Are you okay?
James Norrington:[facedown in filth] GONE! It's all gone! All of it's gone, bye-bye, hoo-hoo, see ya!
Elizabeth:[helping him sit up] ...What happened to you?
James:[slurring] One minute you're defendin' th' whole ocean, aND SUDDENLY you find yourself sucking down old grog with pirates and their little tarts!
Elizabeth:[helps him to his feet] I think you've had enough rum for today; let's get you out of here, Ja-
James:[wrenches out of her grasp, staggering] DON'T YOU GET IT?! D'y'see the hat? [She doesn't; he lost it back in the tavern.] I AM COMMODORE NORRINGTON, SCOURGE OF PIRACY! [mad laughter]
Elizabeth:Snap out of it, James! [resounding slap]
James:[more soberly] I-I-I-I'm sorry, you're right, I'm just a little depressed, that's all. I-I can get through this... [lurches, falls back in the mud] OH, I'M A SHAM! Look at me; I can't even walk to the docks!
Elizabeth:[remembers why she actually came to Tortuga]
James:[still rambling drunkenly] Did the hat look good? Tell me the hat looked good! The wig is a bit much, and the coat's not really my color, but-
Elizabeth:The docks? James, you're surprisingly helpful. [helps him walk again] Come on, this way.
You’re Elizabeth. He who stabs the heart of the captain must take over as captain. The Dutchman must always have a captain. And if he saves me, he loses you. He won’t pick me, I wouldn’t pick me! Tell him not to come. Tell him to stay away. Tell him it’s too late. I’m part of the ship…part of the ship, part of the crew…
