He can, with help from his friends.For more family and animated movie quotes, check out these lists for the best lines from 'The Lorax,' 'The Secret World of Arrietty,' 'Journey 2: The Mysterious Island' 'Big Miracle,' 'Puss in Boots,' 'Hugo,' 'Happy Feet Two,' 'The Muppets,' 'Arthur Christmas,' 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II,' 'The Smurfs' movie, 'Toy Story 3,' 'Cars 2,' the original 'Cars' movie and other great Pixar movies!
Poor Pirate Captain! Every attempt he makes at plundering other ships seems to end in disaster. He's just not picking the best boats to rob -- including this one -- a leper boat. Oops!
Pirate Captain: "Alas! I am a pirate captain, and I am here for your gold!"
Crew member: "Gold? I'm afraid we don't have any gold here, old man. This is a leper boat." (Man's arm falls off)
Pirate Captain: "Ah!"
Crew member: "See?"
Oh, Pirate Captain: "Things that go bang?" Really? At least the crew knows what you mean....
Pirate Captain: "Fire those long things that go bang!"
Cutlass Liz Wants the Trophy
Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) pulls no punches: She wants the Pirate of the Year Award, and she's determined to do anything, and cross anyone, to get it. Between Black Bellamy and Cutlass Liz, the Pirate Captain has his work cut out for him.
Cutlass Liz: "That trophy's got my name on it!"
Sea Monster Decoration
Yeah, sea monsters are just put on maps for "decoration." Good theory, but it's wishful thinking -- as the Pirate Captain and his crew will soon find out!
Crew member: "Can we get there?"
Pirate Captain: "Well, yes, but unfortunately there's this dirty great sea monster in the way."
Crew member: "I think they just add those onto maps for decoration."
Pirate Captain: "Is that a fact?"
