Governor Swann: So this is your choice. You know he is a blacksmith.
Elizabeth: No he's a pirate.

Elizabeth: Parley. I invoke the right of parley. According to the Code of the brethren, set down by the pirates Morgan and Bartholomew , you have to take me to your Captain.
Pintel: I know the code.
Elizabeth: If an adversary demands parley you can do them no harm until the parley is complete.
Ragetti: To blazes with the code.
Pintel: She wants to be taken to the Captain. And she'll go without a fuss. We must honour the Code.

Elizabeth: Captain Barbossa , I am here to negotiate the cessation of hostilities against Port Royal .
Barbossa: There are a lot of long words in there, Miss; we're naught but humble pirates. What is it that you want?
Elizabeth: I want you to leave and never come back.
Barbossa: I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request. Means "no."

First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement, so I must do nothin'. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the Pirate's Code to apply, and you're not. And thirdly, the Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Miss Turner.
