Jack: My tremendous intuitive sense of the female creatures informs me that you are troubled.
Elizabeth: I just thought I'd be married by now. I'm so ready to be married.
Jack: You know, Lizzie, I am captain of a ship, and being captain of a ship I could in fact perform a marry-agh. Right here. Right on this deck. Right now.
Elizabeth: No thank you.
Jack: Why not? We are very much alike, you and I, I and you, us.
Elizabeth: Except for a sense of honor, and decency, and a moral center. And personal hygiene.
Jack: Trifles. You will come over to my side, I know it.
Elizabeth: You seem very certain.
Jack: One word love: curiosity. You long for freedom. You long to do what you want to do because you want it. To act on selfish impulse. You want to see what it's like. One day, you won’t be able to resist.
Elizabeth: Why doesn't your compass work?
Jack: ...My compass works fine.
Elizabeth: Because you and I are alike. And there will come a moment when you will show it. To do the right thing.
Jack: I love those moments. I like to wave at them as they pass by.
Elizabeth: You'll have the chance to do something, something courageous. And when you do you'll discover something. That you're agood man.
Jack: All evidence to the contrary.
Elizabeth: Oh, I have faith in you. You want to know why?
Jack: Do tell, dearie.
Elizabeth: Curiosity. You're going to want it. A chance to be admired, and gain the rewards that follow. You won't be able to resist. You're going to want to know what it tastes like.
Jack: I do want to know what it tastes like.
Elizabeth: But, seeing as you're a good man I know that you'd never put me in a position that would compromise my honor. [Jack leans in closer to her, but backs away when he sees the black spot on his hand] I'm proud of you, Jack.
