One of the things that helped me the most with Captain Jack was a book by Bernard Moitessier, and it’s where I found the last line for the first Pirates movie. The writers were stumped and they’d say, “Well, what about this?” And nothing seemed to click. I was reading this Moitessier book on sailing the Earth, and he had written about how the ultimate for a sailor was the horizon, which you never get to, which is why it keeps pushing you forward. I thought, That’s it! That’s it! So I went to them and said, “I’ve got a line for you: ‘Bring me that horizon.’” And they looked at it and went, “Nah, that’s not it.” But about 45 minutes later, they came to me and went, “That’s the line.”
