Desolation Island, Chapter 1:

'Alas, Jack. What I have is all bespoke, locked up in Spain. Indeed, I am so short in England that it is my intention to beg you to lend me, let us see - 'consulting a paper, 'seven hundred and eighty pounds.'

'Thank you,' he said, when Jack came back with a draft on his banker. 'I am obliged to you, Jack.'

'I beg you will not speak nor think of obligation,' said Jack. 'Between you and me, it would be precious strange to speak of obligation.

No matter how the tides of their respective fortunes shift, obligation is never in it. Share and share alike. ♥

Oh, that is a quote I am always looking out for because it shows that money is of no consequence between them.

How perfect it illustrates the reverse of the scene in TSM, Chapter 1 when Jack needs cash :)
