"There's No One to Have the Key"

After Will Turner is finally reunited and whipped by his father, William Turner Sr., they run into more people on the Flying Dutchman in The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.  Father Turner tells little Turner that he needs to get off the cursed ship.  Will: "Not until I find this.  The key."  He pulls out the super handy dandy drawing of a key, and of course the creepy music is played.  This magical word even awakens this old member of the crew, Wyvern, who has now become part of the ship wall.  Part of the ship, part of the crew!  Wyvern: "The key."  He pulls himself out of the wall, his brain just barely making int out.  How much more weird can Will take in one day?  I guess we'll find out.  Wyvern: "The dead man's chest."  Gee, that sounds familiar.  Will: "What do you know of this?"  Wyvern: "Open the chest with the key, and stab the heart. . . No, don't stab the heart.  The Dutchman needs a living heart or there'll be no captain, and if there's on captain, there's no one to have the key."  Well, if there were no captain and no heart, there wouldn't be a need to have the key.  But if it weren't so confusing, then it wouldn't be so awesome!  
Will: "So the captain has the key?"  Sudden Wyvern gets all freaked out and scared.  He starts to re merge with the wall.  Will: "Where is the key?"  Wyvern: "Hidden."  Will: "Where is the chest?"  As Jack already explained, if they don't have the key, then there's not point in even trying to find the chest.  Jack: "We don't have the key.  WE can't open whatever it is that we don't have that it unlocks.  SO what purpose would we be serving finding whatever need be unlock, which we don't have.  Without first having found the key what unlocks it?"  But I guess Will wasn't present at tha hillarious scene so he doesn't really understand it all.  Wyvern: "Hidden."  And with that, Wyvern completely sinks back into the wall and freezes up again.  Oh, so I guess even if Jack had the key, they still haven't got a clue where the chest is.  That is, of course, where Elizabeth comes into play and leads them to the Isla de Cruces, where the chest is.  But will takes care of acquiring the key.  
So to accomplish this, he first challenges Davy Jones to a game of dice.  Now, in a deleted scene, which you should really try to watch, Will bets his own sole for a chance of winning freedom for his father.  So if Will were to win, he and his father could go free.  But if he looses, he and his father would have to do all their bonding on the Flying Dutchman.  Not exactly that appealing.  But luckily for Will, he winds and his father can go free!  This really should be more a celebratory scene, but Will's not done yet.  That's everything that happens in the deleted scene.  Now, back to what survived the editor's cut.  Will challenges the captain again, waging his own sole again, this time for the key.  Davy Jones pulls out the keys, showing Will what he wants: the location of the key.  But Father Turner is so worried for his son, that he bets his newly received freedom.  And to prevent his son from joining the cursed crew, William Turner Sr. purposefully looses.  
So now everyone is right back to where they started before Will challenged anyone.  Papa Turner is stil stuck on board, and Will is free but has no way of leaving.  But Will does have one very valuable peice of information: the location of the key.  We're all pirates here.  If you can't receive something fairly, you steel it, right?  Will's chance comes when Davy Jones falls asleep playing the organ.  I guess he liked played himself a lullaby on the organ until he just fell asleep?  Well, Jones is quite the heavy sleeper because he doesn't even wake up when Will sticks his hands and sticks through the tentacles to reach the key beneath.  Will even drops something on the key, making on this noice, and Jones doesn't open an eye.  Just a bit oblivious.  But lucky for Will, because now he is free to leave the ship with the actual key and a promise to his father to save him some day.
