"I'm Dishonest"

In this scene of The Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, Jack rambles on to Barbossa in the Isle de Muerta.  "Me? I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest, honestly.  It's the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly stupid."

You kinda have to break down this quote to complete get what the heck Jack is saying.  Basically, he says that he's predictably unpredictable, so one knows never to trust him.  Honest people, however, make you think that their honest, and then deceive you once the have your trust.  Barbossa should have listened to Jack's "words of wisdom" carefully, because right after he is done speaking, Jack pulls out his sword and begins to fight Barbossa again.

Jack takes many twists and turns in only that one movie.  First, he goes out with will to "find" Elizabeth.  When he reaches the Black Pearl and the crew, he planned to trade off Will in exchange of the ship.  Once he was caught, left on the island with Elizabeth, and returns to "save" Will and "defeat the Black Pearl".  Once he's inside the caves talking to Barbossa and his crew, he tells them to go fight the Royal Navy with the curse so that they may not die.  He convinces them to then take the navy ship for Barbossa, and Jack asks to sail the Pearl under his name.  Barbosa agrees.  Will then speaks his words of wisdom and begins fighting Barbossa, before revealing to him that he has also become immortal by taking the gold.  In the end, he ends up on Will and Elizabeth's side.  For now, that is.  Who knows what is to come with such a dishonest man like Captain Jack Sparrow?
