-->'''Jack''': What say we run up a flag of truce, I scurry over to the ''Interceptor'', and I negotiate the return of your medallion, eh? What say you to that?\\

Added DiffLines:

* {{Jerkass}}: They're among the most vulgar and unscrupulous people in a setting of pirates and corrupt officials. They disliked their former Captain Jack's eccentricities and less violent ways so much that only [[TokenGoodTeammate Bootstrap Bill Turner]] had qualms about overthrowing him. They don't even have a shred of what little honor and manners Barbossa has.


* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Jack privately regards the two as the most expendable crewman, Pintel and Ragetti show more loyalty to Barbossa rather than Jack. They also have this relationship with Elizabeth and Will because when Pintel and Ragetti were trying to escape Isla Cruses with the dead mans chest. Elizabeth confronted them and they initially planned to kill her for confronting them but they ended up working together against the Dutchmans crew by throwing swords to whoever needed it the most, then Ragetti saved Elizabeth later in the film by cutting off one of the krakens tentacles. Bo'sun didn't like them either which was shown when he forced the pair to wear dresses to distract the Navy when Barbossa planned to steal The HMS Dauntless.
