Barbossa: So you don’t know why you are here, do you? Ok. Let me explain it to you. It is a long story, but I hope it will help you understand the reasons why you are here. You are here simply because we need you. You have something that we really need and we will do anything to get it. This is Aztec gold. Sorry, a piece of it. It is a part of the 882 identical pieces that that were delivered contained in a stone chest to Cortez himself. Know about him? I am not here to teach you about Cortez. Anyway, that was a part of the blood money that was paid to step the slaughter he orchestrated together with his armies. That was long ago before your father and I knew what was happening in the world. It sounds like history to you and me but it is the reality. Oh my God. Cortez had insatiable greed. The heathen gods were furious for the shed blood and they placed a curse on the gold. Anyone who tries to remove any single piece of the gold from the stone chest was condemned to eternity. Cortez was wise. He buried the stone chest in an island of dead. Nobody could find it except those who knew where it was.
