The pirates of the Caribbean
A Spanish settlement along the Caribbean coast
Captain Jack sparrow walks through the rain and enters a tavern and walks towards the bartender. Men within the tavern wear a weird look at his English looks
Bar tender: no ofrecemos las bebidas para el inglés (we don't offer drinks for the English)
Jack: (In Spanish): soy español (I am Spanish)
Bartender: sus miradas y pantalones toscos lo dicen todo (Your boorish looks and trousers say it all)
(Jack looks at him calmly, takes out a piece of gold from his pocket and tosses it on to his table)
Bartender: Cómo puedo ayúdele sir (How may I help you sir)
Jack: (Leaning over the counter and assertively to the bartender) Primero usted va a ayudarme con una taza de ron fuerte y entonces usted me dirá la manera a la cabaña de los herreros (First you are going to help me with a cup of strong rum and then you will tell me the way to the blacksmith’s cottage)
Bar tender: sí sir (yes sir) -offers the drink-
(Jack takes the mug and walks towards the table at the corner. On the corner table, two men are sitting drinking rum; one of the men has got a wooden peg leg and the other an eye patch)
Jack: (To the men, looking at the peg leg): rey Del granizo (Hail King)
Correcting it immediately and in a low voice: reina del granizo (Hail Queen)
(Men realizing that the “queen” was apparent reference to Queen Elizabeth, hence their English identity)
Peg leg: ningún no somos ingleses (No we are not English)
Jack: Es compañero aceptable (it’s okay mate)
Jack: (tapping at the peg leg, in English) ill luck
Peg leg: ... was a part of the Gold rush
Jack (breaks in to laughter and slowly): Rum, peg leg, eye patche, I guess you have had a brush with the Royal navy or a heavily armed merchant ship on the Spanish Maine
Peg leg: (Resigning to the fact that jack is aware of their true identity): Yes
Jack: …and you could not match their guns.
Eye patch: (with a steady gaze studies jack’s face): Are you a privateer?
Jack: (With an air of self-professed grandeur) I am Captain Jack sparrow, commandeering Black Pearl, the most fearsome ship in the Caribbean.
Eye patch: And you are ashore?
Jack: My little boy Black Pearl ran into a lagoon and damaged his keel. I need a blacksmith and of course fresh provisions and crew, that’s why I came to you, perhaps we could sail together.
Peg leg: What about the plunder?
Jack: Equal among the crew and the captain
Eye patch: That sounds damn good like the Spanish rum
Peg leg: What about the code
Jack: Bartholomew’s… (Looking intensely at the men) Do we have an accord?
(Men come forward and shake hands with Jack and walks away)
