They bring Will Turner on this little journey also, because it's not a party unless Orlando Bloom is there! But Will has no idea all this is happening to Jack. So he gets right down to business with Tia Dalma. Will: "We're looking for this and what it goes to." He shows her the drawing of the key. Tia Dalma looks rather confused for a moment, and then calls to Jack: "The compass you bartered from me, it cannot lead you to this?" Jack looks very uncomfortable at this question: "Maybe. Why?" This makes Tia Dalma giggle. Tia Dalma: "Jack Sparrow does not know what he wants. Or do you know but loathe to claim it as your own?" Jack decides it best to not answer this question. The compass points to whatever the holder wants the most in this whole world, except you have to have it clearly in your mind. But Jack doesn't know what he wants the most, so the compass cannot show him his way to it. But then Elizabeth Swann joins the party and saves him his worries, for now, because she on the other hand knows clearly what she wants: William Turner. Elizabeth: "All I want is to find Will." Jack: "Are you certain? Is that what you really want most?" Elizabeth: "Of course." Jack: "Because I would think, you'd want to find a way to save Will the most."
Jack's onto something, as usual. Because if all she wanted to do was find Will, she could just kill herself at see, and wait for Davy Jones to come and recruit her! Then she and Will could be together for a whole eternity working their butt's off on the Flying Dutchman. Although I'm not so sure if they take female recruits. Elizabeth: "And you'd have a way of doing that?" Jack: "Well, there is a chest." Norrington is adding his rude commentary in the background since Jack has just hired him for his crew. Norrington: "Oh dear." Jack just shoots him a rather cold look and continues: "A chest of unknown size and origin." Then our favorite pirates Pintel and Ragetti wander by. Pintel: "With the still-beating heart of Davy Jones." Ragetti pretends his hand is a beating heart. Jack: "And whoever posses that chest posses the leverage to command Jones to do whatever it is he or she wants. Including, saving brave William from his grim fate." How easily Jack turns what he wants into what Elizabeth wants. Norrington knows better: "You don't actually believe him, do you?"
The compass shakes a bit but finally comes to a stop, which she is surprised to find is not north. Jack reappears, happier than usual. Jack: "Mr. Gibbs!" Gibbs: "Cap'n." Jack: "We have our heading!" Gibbs: "Finally!" After many weeks of not knowing where to go because of the misguiding compass and very vague headings, the crew can finally set sail for their destination, thanks to Elizabeth for playing the perfect tool! I guess Elizabeth can be useful for something because the compass does indeed lead them to the chest.
