Come to negotiate, eh, have you, you slimy git? Look what I got. *sings* I got a jar of dirt, I got a jar of dirt, and guess what's inside it?
Jack Sparrow to Davy Jones[src]

Tia Dalma gives Captain Jack Sparrow a jar of dirt so that he will always be near land and safe from Davy Jones. She explained that, as Davy Jones was unable to set foot on land but once every decade, Jack would carry land with him at all times. It appeared in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and has appeared in the Disney Gallery at Disneyland.

Dead Man's Chest

During his search for the Dead Man's Chest, Jack Sparrow visits the mystic Tia Dalma. To protect him from Davy Jones, she gives Jack a jar of dirt, so that he'll alway be near land—and safety. She explained that, as Davy Jones was unable to set foot on land but once every decade, Jack would carry land with him at all times. Though he didn't want the jar of dirt at first, he became attached to it during his travels, so far as to insist to Pintel and Ragetti, "don't touch my dirt".

After Jack unlocked the chest, he took the Davy Jones' heart and hid it within his jar of dirt. James Norrington, however, discovered this, and took the heart from the jar, leaving nothing but dirt inside. Thus, when Jack confronted Davy Jones and the Flying Dutchman, he erroneously believed he had the advantage over Jones, calling him fishface and a slimy git. However, the jar slipped from Jack's grasp, and shattered on the deck of the Black Pearl, revealing that the jar was only filled with dirt. With his protection gone, Jack suffered death by the Kraken.

Video games

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (video game)

The jar of dirt's appearance in the game is slightly different from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. In the PlayStation 3 version of the game, Jack Sparrow received the jar from Tia Dalma at Port Royal, while in the PlayStation 2 version the jar first appears sitting beside Jack after the fight for the key.

In the PlayStation 2 version, the Flying Dutchman appeared from the depths before Jack accidentally breaks his jar of dirt in his attempt to show off that he has Jones' heart, realizing that James Norrington has the heart. In the PlayStation 3 version, Jack realized the heart was stolen before the Dutchman appeared.

Disney Parks

Disneyland

The Jar of Dirt was put on display at the Disney Gallery in Disneyland.
