From Pirates of the Caribbean: The Black Pearl (2003)

Elizabeth: Captain Barbossa, I am here [aboard the Black Pearl} 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.  [Laughter]
Barbossa:  I’m disinclined to acquiesce to your request.  Means "no."
     [After much talk, she finally convinces them to leave.]
Elizabeth:  Our bargain?
Bo’sun:  Still the guns and stow ‘em!  Signal the men, set the flags and make good to clear port!
Elizabeth:  Wait!  You have to take me to shore. According to the code of the order of the brethren—
Barbossa:   First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement so I "must" do nothing.  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.
