Elizabeth Swann, John Rolfe, and Pocahontas are socializing on the beach of Port Royal when Jack Sparrow comes along needing a crew for a trip to Tortuga for important business. Elizabeth decides to go. Rolfe, not wanting the lady to travel to a dangerous place alone, resolves to accompany her. Pocahontas refuses to be left behind. So the four of them board the Black Pearl and set out sailing to the pirates' paradise of Tortuga. Mid-journey, Rolfe spots another ship some distance away from them. Jack Sparrow identifies it as the ship of Captain Smith, whom Pocahontas and Rolfe haven't seen in well over a year. Elizabeth Swann gets the other ship's attention and it makes a turn and comes back toward them.
Pocahontas sees Smith.
Rolfe: I wonder how many places he's been to by now. I bet he's had a ton of adventures since we last saw him in London.
Smith brings his ship to sail right beside the Black Pearl.
Smith: Pocahontas, is that really you?
Pocahontas: Hi, John! Funny seeing you here.
Smith: Pocahontas, I thought you were dead!
Pocahontas: Almost, but not quite.
Smith's jaw drops.
Pocahontas: It's a long story.
Rolfe walks up behind Pocahontas.
Smith sees Rolfe.
I thought you were dead too!
Rolfe: We escaped.
Smith calls to Jack.
Smith: Ahoy! Might I board your ship to say hello to old friends?
Jack: Are you affiliated with the Navy?
Smith: No, we are independent explorers.
Jack: Then by all means come aboard.
Smith: Thank you, Captain!
Smith grabs hold of a rope and swings over to the other ship.
Pocahontas embraces Smith.
Pocahontas: How have you been doing?
Smith: To be honest, I've been terribly depressed since I heard the news.
Pocahontas: Really, haven't you been enjoying your travels?
Smith: A bit, but peace of mind would've made them much better.
Elizabeth tosses Smith his compass.
Elizabeth: Pocahontas said to give that to you.
Smith: Ah, my compass, I haven't seen this in years.
Thank you… Miss?
Elizabeth: Of course.
Smith: What is your name again, my lady?
Elizabeth: I'm Elizabeth. Remember? We ran into each other around Florida.
Smith: Yes. I recognize you.
Elizabeth: What have you been up to?
Smith: Well, I've been on a wild goose chase for well over a year now. I feel like a fool.
Elizabeth: Chasing what?
Smith: I've been living on the hope that Pocahontas had been taken prisoner rather than killed on the ship home, and I've been searching for her. But here she is, safe and sound. My prayers have been answered.
First Mate: *whispers to Smith* Captain? Does this mean we're not going to look for her in the islands now?
What do you think?
First Mate: I suppose not.
Jack: Yes, well, here she is safe and sound. Now will you be joining us on our little voyage or not? Should it be the latter, then please get off my ship.
Smith: Oh, where are you going, if I may ask?
Smith: Pocahontas is going to Tortuga?!
Smith: Then I must come!
Rolfe: We could
use your help in case anything goes wrong, Smith.
Elizabeth: Well. Let's go, then.
Smith swings on a rope back over to his own ship and gives directions to the navigator. Then he calls to Elizabeth.
Smith: Lead the way, my lady!
Jack: Hey, no nicey nice talk to Lizzy. Now, let's go.
Smith: Aye, aye!
The Black Pearl sails toward Tortuga, followed by Smith's ship and crew.
The ships dock at Tortuga.
Jack: Welcome to the greatest town in the world.
Pocahontas, Rolfe, and Smith look around, partly with horror and partly with fascination.
Rolfe: This is… the damnedest town I think I've ever seen in my life.
Smith nods silently.
Elizabeth: Wait for it…
Jack walks off the ship and is slapped across the face by two women.
Smith claps a hand over his mouth to stifle the laughter.
Rolfe looks at Smith like
Scarlet: Who's she?
Scarlet points at Elizabeth.
Jack pushes the floozies out of the way and keeps walking.
Elizabeth follows Jack.
Elizabeth: You coming?
Pocahontas, Rolfe, and Smith disembark from the ships.
Giselle sees Rolfe and Smith.
Giselle: Hello, sailors.
Rolfe is a bit surprised.
Rolfe: Oh, hello, my lady.
Smith takes Giselle's hand and kisses it with a small bow.
Elizabeth: You don't want to do that. Come on, boys.
Rolfe immediately obeys, but has to stop to pull Smith away from Giselle.
Rolfe and Smith walk on either side of Pocahontas.
Jack: Now, you lot have fun. I have some business to take care of. Lizzy, are you staying or coming with me?
Rolfe: Shall we stay here and guard the ships then?
Smith: Hold on just a minute, Captain, where are you off to?
Pocahontas: John, who cares?
Elizabeth: I'll stay with them so they won't get lost.
Jack: I have people to go, places to see. In other words, I have things to take care of.
Jack walks off.
Elizabeth: So, is this what you were expecting?
Pocahontas: Well, it's an odd place but nothing terrible has happened yet.
Elizabeth: Oh, just wait…
Smith turns to Pocahontas.
Smith: So Pocahontas, you must tell me everything that happened with those pira—
Pocahontas claps a hand over Smith's mouth.
Rolfe leans over to Smith.
Rolfe: Ix-nay on the Irates-pay Ing-thay, Smith.
A drunk man bumps into Elizabeth.
She shoves him off and kicks him as he turns around, making him fall on his face.
Elizabeth: Well, then.
Rolfe: I approve.
Elizabeth: Approve of what, Rolfe?
Rolfe: Your treatment of that drunken fool, of course.
Elizabeth: Oh. Well, thank you. Would you all like to go in the tavern or stay by the ships?
Rolfe: I wouldn't mind getting something to eat.
Smith: Same here.
She leads them to the tavern.
Elizabeth sits at the bar and orders food and drinks.
The three join her.
Elizabeth: So, I'm guessing this is all very new to you.
Pocahontas: It certainly is.
Elizabeth: You get used to it.
Smith: Nah, I've been around.
Elizabeth: Have you, Smith?
Smith: Oh yes, I've been all around. To so many countries, I've lost count by now.
A drunk man stumbles and falls on Pocahontas, spilling his drink all over her.
Pocahontas squeals in surprise.
Smith and Rolfe simultaneously grab him and throw him over the bar as one.
Elizabeth: You shouldn't have done that.
Rolfe: Relax, dear.
Smith: Don't worry, Pocahontas. I can handle any of the fools in here.
Pocahontas: But I'm all wet. .-.
A large bearded man with one eye walks over to Rolfe.
Man: What do you think you're doing?
He takes a swing directly at Rolfe's face.
Rolfe yelps and ducks, while Smith throws a mug full of beer in the man's face, shattering it to pieces and KO'ing the idiot.
A huge fight breaks out.
Smith unsheathes his sword and Rolfe whips out a pistol as a precaution.
Elizabeth: Oh, how lovely.
Elizabeth punches a man in the face.
Elizabeth: Get Pocahontas out of here!
Pocahontas kicks a man in the groin.
Rolfe: A little busy, madam!
Smith jumps on a man's back and chokes him from behind.
Elizabeth sees a bald man about to hit Smith in the back of the head with a bottle.
Elizabeth: Smith, watch out!
Pocahontas trips a man running at Rolfe's back with a dagger.
Elizabeth shoots the bottle out of the bald man's hand.
Pocahontas snatches the dagger and cuts another fool's belt, causing his pants to fall down. He trips over his pants and face-butts another man's stomach.
Elizabeth raises her pistol and fires three shots into the air. Everyone freezes.
Elizabeth: Now then, if we're done here.
Rolfe and Smith:
Elizabeth: Come along.
She walks out of the tavern. Pocahontas, Rolfe, and Smith follow rapidly.
Smith: That was great!
Rolfe is tempted to slap Smith.
Elizabeth: I'm going to find Jack. You can go back to the ships if you want.
Elizabeth starts to leave.
Rolfe: Wait, you can't go alone!
Smith: We should accompany her. Come on.
Elizabeth: I'll be alright. Rolfe, you stay with Pocahontas.
Smith: Fine, but I'm coming with you.
Elizabeth: You don't need to.
She starts to walk.
Rolfe stands by Pocahontas as Smith follows Elizabeth.
You've got a lot of pride, I see.
Smith: I like it.
Elizabeth: Not pride, I just know how to take care of myself.
Elizabeth: Excuse me?
Smith: What? All I'm saying is I respect you.
Elizabeth: Oh. Good. Now where could Jack be?
Smith looks around, then points.
Smith: Isn't that the guy?
Smith: Found 'im.
Jack turns around and sees them.
Jack: Lizzy! And… whatever your name is...
Smith ignores Jack.
Elizabeth: Are you done yet?
Jack: Ah, yes, shall we?
Smith pretends to file his fingernails.
Elizabeth: John, are you alright?
Smith: Quite well.
Elizabeth leans in.
Elizabeth: You don't seem too fond of Jack.
Smith: Au contraire, I think I like his style.
Elizabeth pauses, then locks eyes with Smith.
Smith: No, what?
Elizabeth: No to the hairstyle.
Smith: Wai… bu… I… he… that's not what I…
Elizabeth: Not what you what?
Smith: Nothing. .-.
Elizabeth: Don't feel bad. He doesn't call most people by their names.
Smith: Right… what's next on the agenda?
Elizabeth: I don't know.
Elizabeth looks to Jack.
Jack: Ah yes. Well, it seems the whelp is in a bit of trouble, but you can leave that to me.
Smith: Who's in trouble?
Elizabeth: The whelp. You mean Will?
Jack: Yes, Will. And I said I would handle it. Now you two go back to the ship. And you *points to Smith* make sure that she *points to Elizabeth* stays there.
Elizabeth starts to follow Jack.
Elizabeth: Who are you to tell me where I can and cannot go?
Smith: Come on, Miss, we can drink rum and sing. It'll be fun!
Elizabeth looks at Smith.
Elizabeth: Rum is a vile drink.
Smith: .-. Wine, then?
Elizabeth: I really think I should go with Jack.
Smith: Well, what says the Captain about this proposition?
Elizabeth: He said to stay.
Smith: Um, excuse me, Captain? She's being difficult.
Smith isn't sure what to do.
Jack: Deal with it.
Jack walks away.
Smith jogs in front of Elizabeth.
Smith: Let's go play cards!
Elizabeth: No, thank you.
She walks around him.
Smith walks alongside her.
Smith: C'mon, what's so important about this that you think the funny-haired guy can't handle on his own?
Elizabeth: It's Will.
Are we talking about free will or an actual person named Will?
Elizabeth: A person, but I guess I should listen to him for once.
Smith: Who? Will or the Captain?
Elizabeth: Will is a person, and I should listen to Jack.
Smith: I agree wholeheartedly!
He offers her his hand.
Smith: Shall we?
He gestures in the direction of the ships.
She takes the hand.
Smith walks back to the ship.
Smith: You don't think he will take long helping this Will guy, will he? Woah, I think I said will too many times.
Elizabeth: You have and I'm not sure.
Smith: I'll tell you what, if he takes too long and you start to feel uneasy, we'll all go check it out together. Sound good?
Elizabeth: Sounds good.
They get back to the ship.
Rolfe looks over the railing.
Pocahontas walks to the railing beside Rolfe.
Pocahontas: You couldn't find Jack?
Elizabeth: We found him but he sent us away.
Pocahontas: Oh, he has not completed his business yet?
Elizabeth: New business, I'm afraid.
Rolfe is holding a glass of wine.
Rolfe: Beautiful weather we're having.
Elizabeth: Hmm? I suppose.
Elizabeth leans on the rail.
Smith: It has to do with some guy named Will.
Pocahontas perks up.
Pocahontas: Will? The man you love, Elizabeth?
Elizabeth: Yes, but Jack won't say anything about it.
Pocahontas: I see.
And you're not in the mood to spy, I presume?
Both Smith and Rolfe flash a glare at Pocahontas. She ignores them.
Elizabeth: No, for once. I am not.
Pocahontas: Hmm… you must trust this Jack guy…
Pocahontas twirls her hair around her finger innocently.
Elizabeth: Trust? No.
Pocahontas: Oh. .-.
Rolfe: Uh, Pocahontas dear—
Pocahontas hushes Rolfe with a wave of her hand.
Pocahontas: Well, I suppose it must not be that important…
Elizabeth: I just know it would be worse to get involved.
Rolfe: Yes, I agree.
He speaks loudly, shooting a stern look at his fiancée.
Rolfe: You are a wise woman, Miss Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: Please, it is just Elizabeth. Miss is far too formal.
Rolfe: If you wish.
Smith: So… I've never heard of this Will guy.
Elizabeth: I wouldn't expect you to have.
Smith leans in, hoping for more information.
Rolfe: Am I the only one who likes to mind my own business around here?
Rolfe: Except you, of course, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: That's also because I told you about him already.
Smith: So, when your Captain's business in Tortuga is over any idea where you plan to sail next?
Elizabeth: I guess wherever I need to be… It's really tiring sometimes.
Smith: Hah. Sailing is tiring?! I don't think so.
Elizabeth: My kind of sailing is… it's like running on water.
Smith: I could live my whole life on the oceans and be the happiest man alive.
Smith looks whimsically over the bow.
Elizabeth: Try running from Skeleton Pirates and an entire navy that's out to get you.
Smith: Sounds like a good time!
Rolfe rolls his eyes at Smith.
Rolfe: I understand Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: Well then, perhaps you should join us, Smith.
Smith: Do you travel to new lands? Hunt for treasures beyond your wildest dreams? Discover *gasp* mystical things?
Elizabeth: You make it sound so great. We travel places and fight. Discover things and fight.
Smith: To me, it is great!
Smith: Wait? Why wait?
Pocahontas: Elizabeth, he can't join you until he comes to my village again. Please.
Smith: I can't?
Pocahontas: No, John, my father needs to see you. I don't know the details, but I know it's very important.
Elizabeth: What's wrong?
Pocahontas: Please, John.
Alright, I suppose I can make a detour.
Pocahontas: Nothing's wrong, Elizabeth. But my father needs to see John.
Elizabeth: Oh, alright.
Smith: Hmm, Elizabeth? Do you need us for anything or can we start heading to Virginia right now? I'd rather get it out of the way, whatever it is.
Elizabeth: Huh? Go ahead.
Rolfe: Your Captain won't be short a crew?
Smith: He can find new crew members here, Rolfe.
Elizabeth: Smith is right. Go on.
Rolfe: Alright, then.
Smith: We wish you the best, Elizabeth. Hopefully we'll cross paths again, and soon.
Elizabeth: I hope so. Feel free to come to Port Royal whenever you like.
Smith: Farewell, my lady.
Elizabeth: Goodbye, John Smith.
Smith boards his own ship with Pocahontas and Rolfe and the rest of his crew, and they all set sail for Virginia.
