1 'Dead Men Tell No Tales' opened with a child climbing on board Will Turner's ship, the Flying Dutchman. Who were they?
Answer: Henry, Will Turner's son

Henry Turner was twelve when he visited his father, Will Turner. Will had been cursed since he became captain of the Flying Dutchman in 'At World's End'. His son had heard of a way to break the curse and rowed out to sea to tell Will the news. He tied rocks to his ankle so that he would sink and land on the deck of the sunken Dutchman.

3 "Now we're being followed by ______. Never heard of that before." What is the missing word?
Answer: rocks

This memorable quote of the loveable Captain was seen in "At World's End".

Jack Sparrow says this whilst he is trapped in Davey Jones' Locker, with very little hope of getting out. At this point, he appears to be going slightly mad. He is having hallucinations of multiple versions of himself, and does not appear to be in good shape. He jumps off of his ship, sees a rock, walks a little way, and then turns around to discover that the rock has seemingly followed him. The "rocks" were in fact odd looking little crabs, which actually ended up helping carry him and the Black Pearl back into the ocean.

These crabs were also what Tia Dalma/Calypso turned into when she was released from human form.

4 Which object did the child believe could free Will Turner from the curse he and his crew were under?

5 In "The Curse of the Black Pearl", why does Elizabeth fall off the cliff?
Answer: She faints.

Elizabeth's father had bought her a new dress to wear at James Norrington's promotion ceremony. After the ceremony, Elizabeth and James are talking by the edge of a cliff. Elizabeth cannot get any air into her lungs because her chest is being squeezed by the corset she has to wear with the dress. She faints and falls over the edge into the bay. She is saved by Captain Jack Sparrow, who somehow knows that taking off the corset would save her.

6 "You know, for having such a bleak outlook on pirates you are well on your way to becoming one." Jack says this to Will. What is NOT something that Jack mentions that Will has done which makes him "well on his way to becoming a pirate"?
Answer: Raided, plundered, pillaged and otherwise pilfered his weasley black guts out

Jack Sparrow says this to Will Turner as they are sailing into Isla de Muerta in the hopes of rescuing Elizabeth in "The Curse of the Black Pearl". Will had just made a negative comment about pirates, even though he himself has recently engaged in pirate activities, even though it was just to rescue Elizabeth. The full quote is:

Jack Sparrow: "You know, for having such a bleak outlook on pirates you are well on your way to becoming one; sprung a man from jail, commandeered a ship of the fleet, sailed with a buccaneer crew out of Tortuga. And you're completely obsessed with treasure."

It is after Will replies "I am not obsessed with treasure", that we hear the somewhat "inspirational", and very true quote by Sparrow, when he says, "Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate."

The "treasure" that it is believed Jack is talking about is in fact Elizabeth Swann, the girl Will has loved since her first met her.
    Your options: [ Sprung a man from jail ] [ Comandeered a ship of the fleet ] [ Sailed with a buccaneer crew out of Tortuga ] [ Raided, plundered, pillaged and otherwise pilfered his weasley black guts out ]

7 When Elizabeth has to walk the plank in "The Curse of the Black Pearl", Barbossa asks for the dress back before she jumps. What does Elizabeth do?
Answer: She throws the dress at Barbossa and says, "It goes with your black heart."

The Interceptor and the Black Pearl have just had a battle. The Pearl won and has taken the Interceptor's crew as prisoners. Will appears and makes a deal with Barbossa. Will tells Barbossa that Elizabeth has to go free and the crew cannot to be harmed. Barbossa says Will failed to specify when or where, so he decides to dump Elizabeth and Jack on the same island he left Jack on after the mutiny. Elizabeth does give Barbossa the dress, somewhat reluctantly. We see the pirate crew whistling and cheering when she takes it off.

8 What is Jack's last line in "Dead Man's Chest"?
Answer: "Hello, beastie."

Incidentally, the last line in "Dead Man's Chest" is the only one where the closing quote is said by someone other than Captain Jack. Barbossa speaks the very last line in "Dead Man's Chest", after the rest of the crew see him come back from the dead in Tia Dalma's shack. Barbossa says this line as he comes down into the central bit of Tia Dalma's shack, eating his apple that he never got to eat in the first movie, and says, "So tell me. What's become of my ship?"

Jack's last line is "Hello, beastie." He says this as the Kraken is attacking the Black Pearl after Elizabeth handcuffed him to the ship, and he had to go down with the ship. In both the other movies, "The Curse of the Black Pearl" and "At World's End", Jack has spoken the last line of the movie, being "Drink up me hearties. Yo ho!"

9 Why was Carina Smyth in a prison at the beginning of the film?
Answer: She had been imprisoned for witchcraft.

Carina was accused of witchcraft because she showed an interest in science, particularly in astronomy. She grew up in an orphanage, treasuring a diary that her father left to her. With the help of a blood moon, the diary led Carina and Henry to the Trident of Poseidon.
  From Quiz: Dead Men Tell No Tales: Salazar's Revenge
10 In the beginning of "Dead Man's Chest", we see Elizabeth crying in the rain. Then she sees Will being arrested and runs over. What does she first say?
Answer: "Will!"

Elizabeth is angry that her wedding has been crashed and she has no clue what is happening. Governor Swann asks to see proof that Beckett can arrest Will. Beckett accidentally gives him papers saying Elizabeth has to be arrested! Elizabeth is arrested too. Commodore Norrington is supposed to be arrested as well, but no one knows where he is (he has retired and is in Tortuga!). Will is later set free and sent to find Jack Sparrow. Elizabeth's father gets her out of jail and she goes looking for Will. They eventually find each other, in a very unexpected way.

11 "You seem somewhat familiar. Have I _______ you before?" Jack Sparrow says this to Will Turner at their first meeting. What is the missing word?
Answer: threatened

This quote is in "The Curse of the Black Pearl". Jack says this to Will when he is in the blacksmith's workshop, trying desperately to get his handcuffs off so he can escape from Port Royal. Will comes back to the blacksmith's workshop to find a curious looking hat and sword there (being Jack's), and he grabs a sword and holds it up, ready to fight with Jack. The full dialogue is:

Jack Sparrow: "You seem somewhat familiar. Have I threatened you before?"
Will Turner: "I make point of avoiding familiarity with pirates."
Jack Sparrow: "Ah. Well, then it would be a shame for me to put a black mark on your record."

The reason that Jack recognises Will becomes clear later on, when we learn that Jack used to know Will's father, William "Bootstrap Bill" Turner.
  From Quiz: Memorable Jack Sparrow Quotes
12 What was Jack Sparrow doing at the beginning of the film?
Answer: Robbing a bank

Sparrow, Gibbs, and a small band of pirates attempted to rob a bank on the island of Saint Martin. They tied ropes around a safe and tried to pull it through the wall using horses. It didn't quite go to plan, however. The safe didn't break through the wall, but instead dislodged the whole bank from the row of buildings it was a part of. The horses dragged the bank though the streets and through - literally right through - the town gates.

13 At Tortuga in "Dead Man's Chest", what does Elizabeth say to James Norrington after he is thrown into the pigpen?
Answer: "James Norrington, what has the world done to you?"

After she escapes the jail, Elizabeth sneaks onto a ship, disguised as a man. She uses the crew's superstitious beliefs to her advantage and they set sail for Tortuga. Elizabeth sees Norrington there and ends up sword-fighting people to defend him. Then she hits him over the head with a rum bottle and he is thrown into a pigsty. Elizabeth feels sorry for him. He had retired from his position as Commodore after his crew and ship were destroyed in a hurricane while chasing Jack Sparrow. He then moved to Tortuga and became a 'rum-pot deckhand what takes orders from pirates', according to Jack.
  From Quiz: The Charming Elizabeth Swann
14 "My tremendous intuitive sense of the female creature informs me that you are troubled." Jack Sparrow says this to Elizabeth. In which movie does he say this?
Answer: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Jack Sparrow says this to her while they're onboard the Black Pearl, looking for the chest that holds Davey Jones' heart, so that they can rescue Will from Davey Jones' crew (at this point, Elizabeth is unaware of Jack's ulterior motive).

The full dialogue between Jack and Elizabeth is as follows:

Jack Sparrow: "My tremendous intuitive sense of the female creature informs me that you are troubled."
Elizabeth Swann: "I just thought I'd be married by now."
Jack Sparrow: "You know Lizzie, I am captain of a ship. And being captain of a ship, I could in fact, perform a marriage, right here. Right on this deck. Right now."
    Your options: [ Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl ] [ What are you talking about? He never says this! ] [ Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End ] [ Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest ]
  From Quiz: Memorable Jack Sparrow Quotes
15 Jack Sparrow was sentenced to be executed. Which 'new invention' was his method of choice?
Answer: Guillotine

Jack had never heard of the guillotine before, so when his head was placed on the block he said, 'I'm not one to complain normally, but this basket's full of heads'. The origins of the guillotine date back to the thirteenth century, with a number of contraptions utilizing a moving blade as a method of execution. The first guillotine execution occurred in France in 1792. Although the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films are far from historically accurate, 'On Stranger Tides' was set in 1750, which presumably places 'Salazar's Revenge' at least 40 years later. Barbossa, however, states that Blackbeard shrunk the Black Pearl 'five winters ago'.
    Your options: [ Guillotine ] [ Electric chair ] [ Walking the plank ] [ Lethal injection ]
  From Quiz: Dead Men Tell No Tales: Salazar's Revenge
16 Elizabeth traps Jack on the Black Pearl so the Kraken will eat him and stop following them. How does she do this?
Answer: She handcuffs him to the ship.

The Kraken had attacked the Black Pearl and the crew had defeated it. Then everyone hurried onto the escape boat, knowing the Kraken would return and wanting to get away while they could. When Elizabeth and Jack are the last ones on the Black Pearl, she kisses him and quickly locks the handcuff around his wrist while he is distracted. Will sees this and thinks she loves Jack. This issue is sort of resolved in "At World's End".
  From Quiz: The Charming Elizabeth Swann
17 "Why should I sail with any of you? __________ of you have tried to kill me in the past. One of you succeeded!" According to Jack, how many people that he was talking to have tried to kill him in the past?
Answer: Four

This quote is said in "At World's End", when most of the crew from the Black Pearl have come to Davey Jones' Locker to try and rescue Jack.

At first when Jack sees them all, he believes that he's hallucinating again (after all, it wouldn't be the first time). It's only when Elizabeth appears that Jack finally believes that he's not hallucinating. He then tries to pretend that he's reluctant to sail with them, as it was actually Elizabeth who was the "one" who succeeded in killing him by handcuffing him to the Black Pearl while the krakken was attacking it.

However, in the end, Jack ends up sailing with the crew back out of Davey Jones' Locker. Don't you love it?

18 Jack, Henry, and Carina washed up on a beach after abandoning their rowing boat. Why couldn't Salazar follow them?
Answer: He couldn't step on to land.

The three ended up on a rowing boat after Jack's crew mutinied. With the help of Barbossa, Salazar went after Jack, so Carina dived out of the boat and swam to a nearby island. An undead shark attacked Jack and Henry, so all three ended washed up on the beach. Salazar and his crew couldn't step out of the water onto dry land. One sailor who did vanished into thin air.

19 At Tia Dalma's house, after Jack has been eaten by the Kraken, everyone gives a toast to Jack. What does Elizabeth say?
Answer: "He was a good man."

Everyone is silent and sad. Poor Elizabeth has tears running down her face. Tia Dalma passes around drinks and Mr. Gibbs gives a toast to Jack. Elizabeth does not want to tell the truth because everyone would probably hate her if they knew the truth.
  From Quiz: The Charming Elizabeth Swann
20 "Did no one come to save me just because they ________ me?" What is the missing word here?
Answer: missed

Aww. Shame, poor Jack. This quote is said in "At World's End", when Jack discovers that everyone (with the exception of some of the Black Pearl crew members) who came to save him really had their own agenda; Tia Dalma needed him because he is one of the nine Pirate Lords; Barbossa wanted the Black Pearl back; Elizabeth needed to ease her guilty conscience; and Will needed Jack back to rescue his father, Bootstrap Bill, from the possession of Davey Jones.

Sorry about the pathetic cryptic clue. It seemed funny at the time.

21 Who was revealed to be Carina Smyth's father?
Answer: Captain Barbossa

Barbossa recognised the diary that Carina used to find the Trident. He initially accused her of stealing, until he found out her name. Jack Sparrow recognised her name, too, and blackmailed Barbossa. In the end, Barbossa's tattoo of the stars revealed that he was Carina's father. He sacrificed himself to save her from Salazar.

22 In "Dead Man's Chest", Jack tells Elizabeth they are very much alike. Elizabeth agrees, except for four things: "honor, decency, a moral center, and ________." What is the last thing?
Answer: Personal hygiene

Jack, Elizabeth, and the crew are searching for the chest with Davy Jones' heart in it. Jack has pretty much asked Elizabeth to marry him. She says no thank you and he claims that they are very similar. Elizabeth looks disgusted, and does not entirely agree. Jack is a pirate. He does not live by any morals, and he certainly does not wash himself.
  From Quiz: The Charming Elizabeth Swann
23 Who was Will Turner reunited with at the end of the film?
Answer: Elizabeth

As captain of the Flying Dutchman, Will had to ferry the souls of people who had died at sea into the afterlife. He was an immortal who could only step on land once every ten years. By breaking the Trident of Poseidon, Henry removed all curses inflicted on people at sea. Will Turner was once again able to live on land.

Salazar's curse was also broken and he and his crew became mortal again. The problem was, they were trapped at the bottom of the ocean when it happened.
  From Quiz: Dead Men Tell No Tales: Salazar's Revenge
24 When we first see her in "At World's End", what is Elizabeth doing and where is she?
Answer: Singing in Singapore

Elizabeth is on her way to Sao Feng's bathhouse. She is singing a pirate song to help her find Sao Feng's servant, Tai Huang. Elizabeth finds him and he leads her and Captain Barbossa to Sao Feng. We soon see that Will has been captured while trying to steal navigational charts. The East India Trading Company attacks the bathhouse, but they escape and sail off toward Davy Jones' locker.

25 "I do that quite a lot. Yet people are always surprised." What, according to Jack, DOES he do "quite a lot".
Answer: Tell the truth

The following exchange took place in "Dead Man's Chest":

James Norrington: "My God. You were actually telling the truth."
Jack Sparrow: "I do that quite a lot. Yet people are always surprised."

This is just after Jack, Elizabeth and James Norrington have gone onto Isla Cruces, where Davey Jones has allegedly buried his heart in the "Dead Man's Chest", After they have dug up chest, and put their ears to it and hear Jones' heart beating, the above exchange happens.

James Norrington is very surprised to actually find the chest, along with the heart, as before, he was convinced that Jack was lying and leading them on a wild goose chase. When he expresses his feelings (ok, maybe he wasn't being very nice about it,) Jack, offended, defends himself by saying that, hard as it may be to believe, he actually DOES tell the truth fairly often.
    Your options: [ Drink rum ] [ Shoot things ] [ Do something honourable and good ] [ Tell the truth ]

26 After the credits, there was one final scene. Who appeared to have returned in Will and Elizabeth's bedroom?
Answer: Davy Jones

Davy Jones was the cursed captain of the Flying Dutchman in 'Dead Man's Chest' and 'At World's End'. During 'At World's End', his heart was stabbed and replaced with Will Turner's. His shadow and his crab claw appeared in the bedroom as Will and Elizabeth slept. Will thought it was a dream, but when he awoke, there was a small puddle and some barnacles on the floor.
  From Quiz: Dead Men Tell No Tales: Salazar's Revenge
27 After the big battle in "At World's End", Will and Elizabeth are standing on a beach, talking. What is Elizabeth wearing?
Answer: A dress

Will has stabbed Davy Jones' heart and is now captain of the Flying Dutchman. He is giving Elizabeth the chest that now has his heart in it, saying it has always belonged to her. Elizabeth is to live on this island so Will can come and see her every ten years.

28 "That makes you... Chart-man!" If you were to enter into Jack's way of thinking, just who exactly might "Chart-man" be?
Answer: Captain Barbossa

This quote is taken from "At World's End", just after Jack has been rescued from Davey Jones' locker, and there is now something of an argument as to who is the captain of the Black Pearl.

The following exchange happens between Jack and Barbossa, as they are both trying to give orders to the crew onboard, with Pintel throwing in his unwanted two cents' worth as well:

Captain Barbossa: "What are you doing?"
Jack Sparrow: "What are you doing?"
Captain Barbossa: "No, what are you doing?"
Jack Sparrow: "What are you doing?"
Captain Barbossa: "No, what are you doing?"
Jack Sparrow: "What are you doing? Hmm. Captain gives orders on the ship."
Captain Barbossa: "Aye, The Captain of this ship is giving orders!"
Jack Sparrow: "My ship, makes me captain!"
Captain Barbossa: "They be my charts!"
Jack Sparrow: "That makes you... Chart-man!"
Pintel: "Stow it! The both of you! That's an order! Understand?"
[Pause as the two captains throw him a stony glare]
Pintel: "Sorry, I just thought that with the Captain issue in doubt I'd just throw in my name for consideration. Sorry."

Even at the end of the movie, both men are still convinced that they are rightfully the captain of the Black Pearl.

29 Captain Barbossa: "It's not possible!" Jack Sparrow: "Not___________." What is the missing word, forming part of Captain Jack's sarcastic answer?
Answer: probable

This is said in "The Curse of the Black Pearl", when it appears that, for the second time, he has escaped from the island on which the Black Pearl crew marooned him (and in a very short space of time, at that).

Jack interrupts the ritual, in which Barbossa is going to slit Will's throat in order to lift the curse off of him and his crew. Jack has been sent in by Commodore Norrington in order to try and persuade the pirates to come out (although he does a sort of double deception... thing...)

Barbossa is shocked by the fact that Jack managed to escape from the island for a second time, and believes that it is completely impossible that Jack could ever have gotten off the island alive, to which Jack replies that it is merely "not probable".

30 "I love those moments! I like to wave at them as they pass by." What type of moments is Jack talking about?
Answer: Moments when he'll have the chance to do the right thing

This quote is in "Dead Man's Chest", when Elizabeth is trying to prove to Jack that somewhere, deep inside him (very, verrry deep) there is a good man, who is waiting for the chance to do something good.

At the end of the movie, it seems as though Jack is about to prove Elizabeth wrong, as he rows away from the Black Pearl while the Kraken is attacking it. However, thankfully his conscience gets the better of him, and he comes back to help fight. Also, at the end, he nobly (although this perhaps wasn't entirely his decision,) goes down with the Black Pearl as the Kraken chomps it, giving the rest of the crew a chance to escape.
  From Quiz: Memorable Jack Sparrow Quotes
31 "You smell funny!" Who is this insult of Jack's directed at?
Answer: James Norrington

We hear this rather pathetic, yet still hysterically funny, attempt at an insult/comeback in "Dead Man's Chest", when all of Jack's crew, that he is going to try and trade with Jones for his soul, are boarding the ship and James Norrington is one of them.

Jack Sparrow: "You look bloody awful. What are you doing here?"
James Norrington: "You hired me. I can't help it if your standards are lax."
Jack Sparrow: "You smell funny!"

Shortly after, they board the Black Pearl, and go out on their mission to rescue Will and give Davey Jones the other 99 souls he wanted in exchange for Jack's.
