Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean

Having played the role of the infamous pirate Jack Sparrow three times, Depp has said such unforgettable lines as these:

  • " Ladies! Will you please shut it? Listen to me. Yes, I lied to you. No, I don't love you. Of course it makes you look fat. I've never been to Brussels. It is pronounced 'egregious'. By the way, no, I've never met Pizzaro but I love his pies. And all of this pales to utter insignificance in light of the fact that my ship is once again gone. Savvy?"
  • "Did no one come to save me just because they missed me?"
  • "My tremendous intuitive sense of the female creature informs me that you are troubled."


  • That's right. All in alphabetical order. Car wash...drugstore.... I used to lay in my crib and hear him scream in his sleep...'A,B,C,D,E,F,G...BOOM! BOOM!'"
  • "That Lenora ain't nothing to me! I swear on my daddy's grave! I'm burning inside to touch you, baby!"

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

  • "Well, beatniks for one, folk singers and motorbike riders. Y'know. All those hip, jazzy, super cool, neat, keen, and groovy cats. It's in the fridge, daddy-o! Are you hip to the jive? Can you dig what I'm layin' down? I knew that you could. Slide me some skin, soul brother!"
  • "Of course you can! Everything in this room is eatable, even I'm eatable! But that is called 'cannibalism', my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies."

Once Upon a Time in Mexico

  • "Bullfights. Bull hockey. Do you like this? The bull is stabbed, prodded, beaten. The bull is wounded. The bull is tired before the matador ever steps into the ring. Now, is that victory? Of course it is. Wanna know the secret to winning? Creative sportsmanship. In other words, one has to rig the game."
