In Jack We Trust! is a comic short story published in the March 2004 Disney Adventures, set in the Pirates of the Caribbean world and published under the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl title.
Commodore James Norrington has gone undercover in Tortuga, and has managed to corner Captain Jack Sparrow. Just then, Anamaria pushes her way through the assembled marines, yelling at Jack because he left her alone for a month after saying he was leaving for five minutes. When Norrington tries to arrest Jack, she pushes him away, saying that they could have their turn when she's done.
Taking advantage of the momentary distraction, Jack flees and both Anamaria and Norrington give chase. Jack happens upon the governor of Tortuga's carriage, and disguises himself in the governor's hat and cloak. When Norrington catches up, Jack, as the governor, yells at Norrington for bringing armed soldiers into Tortuga, especially out of uniform, and threatens to arrest them as spies.
Just then, the real governor shows up. Jack escapes in the carriage as the governor threatens to arrest Norrington and his men as spies. Later, both Anamaria and Norrington catch up with the carriage. Jack jumps up to Anamaria and they quickly escape to a longboat in which they escape, leaving Norrington to once more concede defeat to Jack Sparrow.
