One of my favorites is: “do you have any cheese?” Which lives on in all sorts of subtle ways in movies and sci-if books. Blade Runner 2049 has Harrison Ford asking the question for example.
“Fifteen men on the dead man's chest-
Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!”
“shiver my timbers”
“dead men don't bite”
Amazing how these sayings have stayed in our language all these years later. Classic tale of swash buckling pirates in search of buried treasure. Fun and entertaining but not one I would want to read again.
