"A Wedding? I Love Weddings! Drinks All Around!"

Like just about every pirate, Jack loves rum.

What is his initial reaction to Elizabeth accepting James Norrington's hand in marriage in The Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl?  "A wedding? I love weddings! Drinks all around!"  Well, what a better subject to discuss and lighten the mood than alcohol, am I right?  Lets not forget that as he rejoices of drinking, he's handcuffed (as he usually is in the movies.  How does he manage to be handcuffed half the time and a hero all the time?)

How about some more memorable moments?
Jack: "Why is the rum always gone?"
(Gets up and stumbles a bit)
Jack: "That's why."
-Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Jack: "Stop! Stop! Not Good!  What are you doing? You burned all the food... the shade... THE RUM!"
Elizabeth: "Yes, the rum is gone."
Jack: "Why is the rum gone?"
Elizabeth: "One, because it is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into beasts and scandals!  And two, that signal is over a thousand feet high.  The entire royal navy is out looking for me. Do you really think that there is even the slightest chance that they won't see it?"
Jack: "But why is the rum gone?"
-Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

Is there really a bigger picture anywhere besides rum for Jack?  Well, with a bottle or with out, we sure do love jack, am I right?
