Season One[edit]

Pilot, Part One [1.1][edit]

Jack: [about airplane turbulence] It's normal.
Rose: Oh, I know, I just never been a really good flyer. My husband keeps reminding me that planes wanna be in the air.
Jack: He sounds like a very smart man.
Rose: Be sure and tell him that when he gets back from the bathroom.
[The plane is really shaking now.]
Jack: Well, I'll keep you company until he does. Don't worry it's going to be over...

Kate: [as she is about to stitch up Jack's wound] Any color preference?
Jack: Nah, standard black.
Kate: I might throw up on you.
Jack: [shaking his head] You're doing fine.
Kate: You don't seem afraid at all. I don't understand that.
Jack: Well, fear's sort of an odd thing. When I was in residency, my first solo procedure was a spinal surgery on a 16 year old kid, a girl. And at the end, after 13 hours, I was closing her up and I, I accidentally ripped her dural sac. Shredded the base of the spine where all the nerves come together, membrane as thin as tissue. And so it ripped open. And the nerves just spilled out of her like angel hair pasta, spinal fluid flowing out of her and I … And the terror was just so … crazy. So real. And I knew I had to deal with it. So I just made a choice. I'd let the fear in, let it take over, let it do its thing, but only for five seconds, that's all I was going to give it. So I started to count: One, two, three, four, five. Then it was gone. I went back to work, sewed her up and she was fine.
Kate: If that had been me, I think I would have run for the door.
Jack: No, I don't think that's true. You're not running now.

Jack: [as Boone is trying to give CPR to Rose] Stop! Her head's not tilted back enough, you're blowing air into her stomach.
Boone: Are you sure? That was exactly what I was doing. I'm a lifeguard, I'm licensed.
Jack: Yeah, well you seriously need to think about giving that license back.
Boone: Maybe we should do one of those hole things? You know, stick the pen in the throat?
Jack: [sarcastically] Yeah, good idea, you go get me a pen!
Boone: Hey, does anyone have a pen?

Sayid: You'd think they would've come by now.
Charlie: What? Who?
Sayid: Anyone.

[Kate and Jack get inside the cockpit.]
Kate: So, what does a transceiver look like?
Jack: Complicated walkie-talkie.
[Kate climbs over the pilot looking for the transceiver when suddenly the pilot takes a breath. Jack and Kate are shocked.]
Jack: Hey! Can you hear me? [to Kate] I need that water. [He gives the pilot some water] Here. Here you go. Hey.
Pilot: How many survived?
Jack: At least 48. Does anything feel broken?
Pilot: No, no. Just my head's a little dizzy, that's all.
Jack: Yeah. It's probably a concussion.
Pilot: How long has it been?
Jack: Sixteen hours.
Pilot: Sixteen? Has anybody come?
Jack: Not yet.
Pilot: Six hours in, our radio went out. No-one could see us. We turned back to land in Fiji. By the time we hit turbulence, we … we were a thousand miles off course. They're looking for us in the wrong place.

Pilot, Part Two [1.2][edit]

Charlie: That’s French! The French are coming! I’ve never been so happy to hear the French!

Boone: Someone else was stranded here?
Charlie: Guys... where are we?

Locke: [talking about Backgammon, a game he is playing with Walt] Two players, two sides. One is light, one is dark.

Hurley: How do you know how to do all that?
Sayid: I was a military communications officer.
Hurley: Oh yeah? You ever see battle?
Sayid: I fought in the Gulf War.
Hurley: No way! I got a buddy who fought over there. He was in the Hundred and Fifth Airborne. What were you, Air Force? Army?
Sayid: The Republican Guard.

[Sawyer has just shot a charging polar bear.]
Kate: Where did that come from?
Sawyer: Probably Bear Village. How the hell do I know?
Kate: Not the bear--the gun.
Sawyer: I got it off one of the bodies.
Sayid: One of the bodies.
Sawyer: Yeah, one of the bodies.
Shannon: People don't carry guns on planes.
Sawyer: They do if they're a U.S. Marshal, sweet cheeks. There was one on the plane.
Kate: How do you know that?
Sawyer: I saw a guy lying there with an ankle holster, so I took the gun. Thought it might come in handy. Guess what. I just shot a bear!
Kate: So why do you think he's a Marshal?
Sawyer: Because he had a clip-on badge. I took that, too. Thought it was cool.

Tabula Rasa [1.3][edit]

Sayid: If we tell them what we know, we take away their hope... and hope is a very dangerous thing to lose.
Kate: So we lie.

Jack: Three days ago we all died. We should all be able to start over.

Sawyer: You're just not looking at the big picture, Doc. You're still back in civilization.
Jack: Yeah? And where are you?
Sawyer: Me? I'm in the wild.

Hurley: Was it a dinosaur?
Jack: It wasn't a dinosaur.
Hurley: If you didn't see it, how do you know it wasn't a dinosaur?
Jack: Cause dinosaurs are extinct.
Hurley: Oh, yeah, good point.

Charlie: So, your, uh... your husband, was he on the flight?
Claire: Oh, no, I'm not married.
Charlie: Oh.
Claire: I know. How modern of me.
Charlie: Well, who needs men, right? Bloody useless.

Walkabout [1.4][edit]

Jack: Everyone who was in the rear of the plane is dead.
Rose: They're probably thinking the same thing about us.

Sayid: We can find food. There are plenty of things on this island we can use for sustenance.
Sawyer: And exactly how are we gonna find this sustenance?
[A knife is thrown into the seat next to Sawyer's head, everyone looks at Locke]
Locke: We hunt.
Kate: How did you get that on the plane?
Locke: Checked it.
Jack: You either have very good aim, or very bad aim, Mr...
Michael: Locke. His name is Locke.
Jack: Okay Mr. Locke, what is it that we're hunting?
Locke: We know there are wild boar on the island. w:Razorbacks by the look of em. The ones that came into the camp last night were piglets, 100, 150 pounds each. Which means that there's a mother nearby. A 250 pound rat, with scimitar like tusks, a surly disposition, who'd love nothing more than to eviscerate anything that comes near it. Boar's usual mode of attack is to circle around and charge from behind so I figure it'll take at least three of us to distract her long enough for me to flank one of the piglets, pin it and slit its throat.
Sawyer: And you gave him his knife back?

Jack: [To Sawyer about Locke's hunting] Well if you've gotta better idea?
Sawyer: Better than the three of us wandering into the magic forest to bag a hunk of ham with nothing but little bitty hunting knife? Hell no it's the best idea I ever heard. [Locke reveals his suitcase full of hunting knives.]
Hurley: Who is this guy?

Jack: We don't have time to sort out everybody's God.
Charlie: Really? Last I heard we were positively made of time.

Shannon: The ocean's full of fish.
Boone: Hate to break it to you...the ocean's not gonna take your gold card.

Locke: Hey, hey! Don't you walk away from me! You don't know who you're dealing with! Don't ever tell me what I can't do, ever! This is destiny. This is destiny. This is my destiny. This is -- I'm supposed to do this dammit! Don't tell me what I can't do. DON'T TELL ME WHAT I CAN'T...

White Rabbit [1.5][edit]

Locke: But I've looked into the eye of this island, and what I saw... was beautiful.
Locke: I'm not a big believer in... magic. But this place is different. It's special. The others don't wanna talk about it because it scares them, but we all know it, we all feel it.

Jack: I can't.
Locke: Why can't you?
Jack: Because I'm not a leader.
Locke: Yet they all treat you like one.
Jack: I don't know how to help them. I'll fail. I don't have what it takes.
Locke: A Leader can't lead unless He knows where He's going.

Sayid: [to Kate, about Sawyer] You go after him now and he'll give you nothing. But if you wait, a rat will always lead you to its hole.

Jack: It's been six days, and we're all still waiting. Waiting for someone to come. But what if they don't? We have to stop waiting. We need to start figuring things out. A woman died this morning just going for a swim. He tried to save her and now you're about to crucify him. We can't do this. Every man for himself is not going to work. It's time to start organizing. We need to figure out how we're going to survive here. Now I found water. Freshwater, up in the valley. I'll take a group up there at first daylight. If you don't want to come then find another way to contribute! Last week most of us were strangers. But we're all here now. And God knows how long we're going to be here. But if we can't live together—we're gonna die alone.

Locke: Crazy people don't know they're going crazy. They think they're getting saner.

House of the Rising Sun [1.6][edit]

Kate: Hey, Charlie, ask Jack about his tattoo.
Charlie: Oh, you guys have an inside joke. How absolutely wonderful for you both.

Sayid: Is there a reason you didn't consult us when you decided to form your own civilization?

Kate: It's just that you... and the tattoos... don't add up. Were you one of those hardcore spinal surgeons or something?
Jack: That's me. Hardcore.
Charlie: If you two are done verbally copulating, we should get a move on.

Locke: Pull yourself together, son.
Charlie: It wouldn't be an irrational fear of bees if I could just pull myself together, would it?

Kate: [About her T-shirt] It was, uh, it was full of bees.
Charlie: I'd have thought C's, actually.

The Moth [1.7][edit]

Locke: Nice work, Charlie. You make excellent bait!

Charlie: Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. It's been a week since my last confession.
Priest: Go ahead, my son.
Charlie: Last night, I had... relations with a girl I didn't even know.
Priest: I see. Anything else?
Charlie: Yeah. Right after that I had... relations with another girl. Then straight after that, I watched... while they had... relations with... each other.

Walt: We should get Mister Locke.
Hurley: Locke's out in the jungle killing stuff.

Locke: [Talking to Charlie about a moth cocoon] You see this little hole? This moth's just about to emerge. It's in there right now, struggling. It's digging it's way through the thick hide of the cocoon. Now, I could help it - take my knife, gently widen the opening, and the moth would be free - but it would be too weak to survive. Struggle is nature's way of strengthening it.

Kate: [to Sawyer] I don't feel sorry for you, I pity you.

Confidence Man [1.8][edit]

Jack: [Trying to get Shannon's inhalers] You attacked a kid for trying to help his sick sister.
Sawyer: No, I whooped a thief 'cause he was going through my stuff--
Jack: Yours? What makes it yours?
Sawyer: --which I had to move because everybody wants to help themselves.
Jack: You can just take something out of a suitcase, and that makes it yours?
Sawyer: Look, I don't know what kind of commie share-fest you're running over in cave town, but down here possession's nine-tenths and a man's got a right to protect his property.
Jack: Get up!
Sawyer: Why, you wanna see who's taller?
Jack: I said get up!

Sawyer: [to Jack] You've been waiting for this, haven't you? Now you get to be a hero again, 'cause that's what you do. You fix everything up all nice. [to Kate] Time to let go Freckles. We already made out. What else I got to live for? Hey, Jack, there's something you should know. If the tables were turned...I'd watch you die.

Boone: [about Shannon's asthma] She's been embarrassed about it since she was a kid. I guess breathing isn't cool.

Kate: Are you serious?
Sawyer: Baby, I am tied to a tree in the jungle of mystery. I just got tortured by a damn spinal surgeon and a genuine Iraqi. Of course I'm serious.

Sawyer: [to Kate about the letter] I became the man I was hunting. I became Sawyer. Don't you feel sorry for me.

Solitary [1.9][edit]

[Hurley has laid out a golf course.]
Hurley: Welcome to the first and... hopefully last Island Open! It's two holes, for now, three par, and no waiting!
Jack: Hurley, you built... a golf course?
Hurley: Rich idiots fly to tropical islands all the time to whack balls around!
Michael: [incredulous] All the stuff we gotta deal with, man... this is what you've been wasting your time on?"
Hurley: Dudes... listen. Our lives suck! Everyone's nerves are stretched to the max! We're lost on an island, running from boars and monsters... freakin' polar bears!
Michael: Polar bears?
Charlie: You didn't hear about the polar bear?

Sayid: I'm a survivor of a plane crash. I found the wire on the beach. I followed it. I thought it might have something to do with. . . a transmission we picked up on a receiver. . . a recording — a mayday with a French woman repeating on a loop for sixteen years.
Rousseau: Sixteen years. Has it really been that long?

Sawyer: A doctor playing golf. Whoo, boy howdy! Now I've heard everything. What's next? A cop eating a doughnut?

Sayid: You'll find me in the next life, if not in this one.
Rousseau: What?
Sayid: The writing on the back of Nadia's photograph.

Jack: This is bad.
Michael: Yeah. I mean, I know what I would do, but... this has gotta be your call.
Jack: All right... give me the 7 iron.

Raised By Another [1.10][edit]

Hurley: So, I had an idea. I'm out here looking for some psycho with Scott and Steve, right. And I'm realizing... who the hell are Scott and Steve?

Hurley: We just had a little incident in the valley last night.
Shannon: An incident?
Hurley: Yeah. Claire, the pregnant girl, you know her. She, uh, kinda got attacked.
Shannon: What?
Boone: She's okay?
Hurley: Yeah. She's a little shook up.
Shannon: I am so not moving to the rape caves!

Charlie: I had this dream once. I'm driving a bus, and my teeth start falling out. My mum is in the back, eating biscuits. Everything smells of bacon. It's weird.

Charlie: [imitating Claire's diary] "Dear Diary, still on the bloody island. Today I swallowed a bug. Love, Claire."

Hurley: We got a problem. The manifest. Jack, the census. The names of everyone who survived, all 46 of us. I interviewed everyone, here, at the beach. Got their names. One of them, one of them isn't — Jack! One of them isn't in the manifest. He wasn't on the plane.

All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues [1.11][edit]

Walt: [After winning backgammon] You owe me twenty thousand dollars!
Hurley: Don't worry, you'll get it.

Sawyer: Well, well, well. I don't know if you Islams got a concept of karma, but I get the sense this island just served you up a heaping platter of cosmic payback.
Sayid: What do you want?
Sawyer: Dr. Do-Right doesn't trust me with his antibiotics so I gotta hump it up here every day to get my meds. You know, a less magnanimous man than I might just be thinking he could beat the ever-living snot out of you right now without fear of reprisal.
Sayid: You want a shot, take it. But know that I left this camp out of shame for what I did to you. It was never my intention to return.
Sawyer: Sorry, fresh out of sweet forgiveness. If it wasn't your intention to return, then why did you?

Sawyer: So, a tribe of evil natives planted a ringer in the camp to kidnap a pregnant girl and a reject from w: VH1 has-beens. Yeah, fiendishly clever. And why am I getting the evening news from a six-year-old?
Walt: I'm ten.
Sawyer: Okay, then it must be true.

Locke: [to Jack] You be the doctor, let me be the hunter.

Boone: Red shirt. You ever watch Star Trek?
Locke: No, not really.
Boone: The crew guys that would go down to the planet with the main guys, the captain and the guy with the pointy ears, they always wore red shirts and they always got killed.
Locke: Yeah?
Boone: Yeah.
Locke: Sounds like a piss poor captain.

Whatever the Case May Be [1.12][edit]

[Shannon's limited command of French is not up to translating Rousseau's notes.]
Sayid: This was a mistake.
Shannon: Yeah. Haven't you heard? I'm completely useless.

Sawyer: [handing over suitcase] Hope you got yourselves some jaws of life back in cave town. That's what it's gonna take to pop this bitch.

Sawyer: I was protecting you!
Kate: From what? Southern perverts?

Michael: You're wasting your time, man. If you pick the lock on a [w:Zero Halliburton|Halliburton]], I'll put you on my back and fly us to L.A.
Sawyer: You better find yourself a runway, Daddy. 'Cause there ain't a lock I can't pick.

Sawyer: [mocking Kate, in a caveman grunt] Me Kate. Me throw rock.

Sawyer: [trying to open the case] Impact velocity? Physics, my ass.

Hearts and Minds [1.13][edit]

Jack: How're you doing?
Charlie: How am I doing? With week two of heroin withdrawal? Or how am I doing with Claire being abducted by the freak who tried to kill me?
Jack: I gave you aspirin for the heroin withdrawal.

Locke: Hi.
Sayid: I didn't hear you.
Locke: Sorry. I'm sneakier than I give myself credit for.

Hurley: [to Jin] Are you sure you don't speak English? There's a rumor that you do... Your wife's hot!
[Jin looks bewildered]

Jack: What do you think his story is?
Charlie: Who, Locke? Guy's a freak of nature. Highly disturbed. Chances are he probably killed all his mates at the post office the day his mum forgot to put a cookie in this lunch tin. That was my first impression anyway. Then he saved my life.
Jack: Then you trust him?
Charlie: Trust him? No offense, mate, but if there was one person on this island that I would put my absolute faith in to save us all, it would be John Locke.

Special [1.14][edit]

Jack: What is that?
Charlie: Claire's diary.
Sayid: You read her diary?
Charlie: Yeah, I know. I'm bloody scum.

Hurley: We're having another tournament for the last of the deodorant sticks.

Walt: [after throwing knife at tree] Man! I suck!

Sawyer: Good literature is kinda scarce around here.

Charlie: [to Sawyer] You hit like a ponce.

Homecoming [1.15][edit]

Sawyer: Looks like ol' Steve drew the short straw.
Hurley: Dude, that was Scott.

Claire: I remember peanut butter. Why do I remember peanut butter?
Charlie: It was imaginary peanut butter, actually.

Charlie: You boys talk about Claire all you want. I'm actually going to go spend some time with her. I get the impression she might still be a tad upset.

Jack: Do you know how to use a gun?
Sawyer: Well, there's one polar bear that seems to think so.

Sawyer: Winner by a knockout. Nice one, Doc. Now maybe somebody can tell me who or what this son of a bitch is. Unh-unh-unh, Jungle Boy. Not even for one second.

Outlaws [1.16][edit]

Charlie: Hurley, look, I appreciate the help. You don't have to. I killed Ethan, I can bury him.
Hurley: Yeah, 'til he raises from the dead. Dude, I know how this works. This is going to end with you and me running through the jungle... screaming, crying... he catches me first because I'm heavy and I get cramps.

[Kate and Sawyer play "I never"]
Sawyer: I've never been in love!
Kate: You've never been in love?
Sawyer: I ain't drinking, am I?
[Kate drinks]
Kate: I never had a one-night stand!
[Sawyer drinks]
Kate: Bottom's up, Sailor!
Sawyer: I gotta drink for each one?!!
Sawyer: I've never been to Disneyland
[Kate doesn't drink]
Swayer: Oh come on. Thats just sad.

Christian Shephard: Do you know why they call Australia "Down Under"? Because it's as close as you can get to Hell without being burned.

Christian Shephard: This... This business that you have... Will it ease your suffering?
Sawyer: Yeah.
Christian Shephard: Then what are you doing here?
Sawyer: It aint that simple.
Christian Shephard: Of course it is! Unless you want to end up like me, of course it is!

...In Translation [1.17][edit]

Locke: Sure, you can yell at Boone 'til you're blue in the face, but all you're doing is giving him what he wants.
Shannon: Yeah? What's that?
Locke: Your attention.

Sawyer: You're pretty scared, huh? Scared, you understand scared, don't you? Huh? [Sawyer pushes Jin down.] If you ain't, you're going to be, Bruce. Folks down on the beach might have been doctors and accountants a month ago, but it's Lord of the Flies time, now.

Sun: My husband is many things. But he is not a liar.
Sawyer: You gonna lecture us about lying, Betty? From the look on his face even your old man here didn't know you speak English!

Jin: [about Sun] In a good world... she would hate her father, not me.
Jin's father: It is a good world.

Locke: They've attacked us, sabotaged us, abducted us, murdered us... We're not the only people on this island and we all know it!

Numbers [1.18][edit]

Carmen (Hurley's mother): Where are you taking me? You know very well I don't like suprises.
Hurley: Oh, you're going to like this one, Ma. I mean, after everything you've been through...like Grandpa...
Carmen: [Crosses self, says prayer in Spanish]
Hurley: Then at the funeral, Father Aguilar getting struck by lightning. Man, that was a freak storm. And Diego moving back home after Lisa left him for that...waitress.
Carmen: Don't mention that whore to me!

[A gunshot is heard, and a branch is struck right beside Hurley and Charlie. They both pause, confused]
Hurley:...Is someone shooting at us--[Another gunshot rins out and Hurley and Charlie run]

Hurley: You don't know?! Okay... that thing in the woods? Maybe it's a monster. Maybe it's a... pissed off giraffe, I don't know. The fact that no one is even looking for us? Yeah, that's weird. But I just go along with it, 'cause I'm along for the ride. Good old fun-time Hurley. Well, guess what? Now — I want some friggin' answers!

Charlie: You're not the only one with baggage, you know. Do you want to know what I was doing when the plane went down? Snorting heroin, in the toilet. I was such a junkie I couldn't even take a plane trip without having a fix.

Hurley: Back home I'm worth a hundred and fifty-six million dollars.
Charlie: I bare my soul, and all I get is bloody jokes!

Deus Ex Machina [1.19][edit]

Jack: [on helping Sawyer] ...all I'm gonna get is a snappy one-liner, and, if I'm lucky, a brand-new nickname.

Jack: [diagnosing Sawyer] Have you ever had sex with a prostitute?
Sawyer: What's that got to do with my headaches?
Jack: Maybe a lot.
Sawyer: ...yes.
Jack: Have you ever contracted an STD? [Sawyer is silent] I'll take that as a yes. When was your last outbreak?
Sawyer: Go to hell, Doc.
Kate: I know he deserved it, but...
Jack: He needs glasses.

Jack: You've got hyperopia.
Sawyer: Hyperopia? That's..... What is that?
Jack: You're farsighted.

Hurley: [on Sawyer's new glasses] Dude, looks like someone steamrolled Harry Potter.

Kate: Thank you for helping him [Sawyer] I know it was probably the last thing you wanted to do.
Jack: I didn't do it for him.

Do No Harm [1.20][edit]

Shannon: Oh, okay. Are you lost?
Sayid: No, absolutely not. Those trees look really familiar. It's this way...I think.
Shannon: Did you just say 'I think'?

Jack: [on Charlie's scant collection of responses to the "blood type" question] You only asked four people?!
Charlie: I asked the whole sodding camp! Nobody knows their blood type! Most don't know their blood type! I don't know my own bloody blood type!

Boone: [between raspy breaths] I know you made a promise. I'm letting you off the hook. Let me go, Jack.
Jack: I'm sorry.
Boone: Don't be.

Boone: Tell Shannon... Tell Shannon... Tell... [dies]

Jack: He (Boone) didn't die, he was murdered.
Kate: Where are you going?
Jack: To find John Locke.

The Greater Good [1.21][edit]

Sayid: I didn't know Boone very well, and for that I am sorry. On our sixth day here a woman named Joanna died. She drowned. And Boone was the first one into the water. I didn't know him, but I remember his courage. And I know he will be missed.

Kate: I crushed up some sleeping pills and put them in your juice.
Jack: You drugged me?
Kate: Yeah.

Kate: Hey, brought you something to eat.
Jack: What's in it, chloroform?

Sayid: Take me to the hatch.
Locke: What? I already showed you....
Sayid: John! No more lies.

Sayid: [noticing the scar where Locke's kidney was removed] What's that?
Locke: War wound.
Sayid: Looks more like a surgical scar.
Locke: Like I said, war wound.

Born to Run [1.22][edit]

Locke: Why would Kate poison Michael?
Hurley: Well, you know, the whole fugitive thing. [Jack gawks at Hurley] He doesn't know? [Jack shakes his head]. Well how am I supposed to keep straight who knows what around here? I mean, Steve didn't even know about the polar bear.

Tom: No self-respecting man in Iowa goes anywhere without beer.

Charlie: Okay, check this out...this is track two, it's called — [Claire tries to stop him from moving] sorry, it's called 'Monster Eats the Pilot.'

Exodus, Part One [1.23][edit]

Rousseau: You have three choices: run, hide... or die.

Arzt: You know what? I'm going back.
Jack: Hey. I thought you wanted to help.
Arzt: Yeah, I wanted to help, but that was before Montand lost his frickin' arm.

Hurley: So, Arnzt.
Arzt: No. Not Arnzt. Arzt. A-R-Z-T.
Hurley: Sorry, man. Your name's hard to pronounce.
Arzt: Well, I know a bunch of ninth graders who pronounce it just fine.
Hurley: How 'bout I just call you by your first name?
Arzt: How 'bout you don't?
Hurley: Why not? I remember it from the plane's manifest. I think Leslie's a bitchin' name.
Arzt: Arnzt is fine.

Sawyer: By the time you get back we'll be in the water. Guess this is pretty much goodbye, then.
Jack: Yeah, I guess it is. Good luck, Sawyer.
Sawyer: [pause] Jack! About a week before we all got on the plane I got to talking to this man in a bar in Sydney. He was American, too. A doctor. I've been on some benders in my time, but this guy he was going for an all time record. It turns out this guy has a son his son's a doctor, too. They had some kind of big time falling out. The guy knew it was his fault even though his son was back in the States thinking the same damn thing.
Jack: [starts to recognize who Sawyer's talking about]
Sawyer: See, kids are like dogs, you knock them around enough they'll think they did something to deserve it. Anyway, there's a pay phone in this bar. And this guy, Christian... tells me he wishes he had the stones to pick up the phone, call his kid, tell him he's sorry, that he's a better doctor than he'll ever be he's proud and he loves him. I had to take off, but something tells me he never got around to making that call. Small world, huh?
Jack: [unable to hold back tears] Yeah...
Sawyer: Good luck, Jack.

Exodus, Part Two [1.24][edit]

Michael: You singing Bob Marley?
Sawyer: No. [little pause] Why? You like Bob Marley?
Michael: Man, who doesn't like Bob Marley?

Arzt: Did you hear about the guy who invented nitroglycerin? Probably not because he blew his freakin' face off! Nitroglycerin is the most unstable substance known to man. It is extremely temperamental so you have to be..
[Arzt unexpectedly explodes]
Hurley: Dude...

[Arzt is blown up]
Hurley: That was messed up.

Hurley: You have some...Arzt...on you.

Hurley: How exactly does something like this happen?
Danielle: Are you on the same island as I am?

Exodus, Part Three [1.25][edit]

Michael: Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalt! No! Waaaaaaaaaalt!

Jack: What the hell was all that about back there, John?
Locke: What was what about?
Jack: You asked me to let you go.
Locke: That's right.
Jack: That thing was taking you down the hole and you asked me to let you go.
Locke: It wasn't going to hurt me.
Jack: No, John, it was going to kill you.
Locke: I seriously doubt that.
Jack: Look, I need for you -- I need for you to explain to me what the hell's going on inside your head, John. I need to know why you believe that that thing wasn't going to...
Locke: I believe that I was being tested.
Jack: Tested?
Locke: Yeah, tested.
Jack: I think...
Locke: That's why you and I don't see eye-to-eye sometimes, Jack -- because you're a man of science.
Jack: Yeah, and what does that make you?
Locke: Me, well, I'm a man of faith. Do you really think all this is an accident -- that we, a group of strangers survived, many of us with just superficial injuries? Do you think we crashed on this place by coincidence -- especially, this place? We were brought here for a purpose, for a reason, all of us. Each one of us was brought here for a reason.
Jack: Brought here? And who brought us here, John?
Locke: The island. The island brought us here. This is no ordinary place, you've seen that, I know you have. But the island chose you, too, Jack. It's destiny.
Jack: Did you talk with Boone about destiny, John?
Locke: Boone was a sacrifice that the island demanded. What happened to him at that plane was a part of a chain of events that led us here -- that led us down a path -- that led you and me to this day, to right now.
Jack: And where does that path end, John?
Locke: The path ends at the hatch. The hatch, Jack -- all of it -- all of it happened so that we could open the hatch.
Jack: No, no, we're opening the hatch so that we can survive.
Locke: Survival is all relative, Jack.
Jack: I don't believe in destiny.
Locke: Yes, you do. You just don't know it yet.

Jack: If we survive this, if we survive tonight, we're gonna have a Locke problem. And I need to know that you got my back.
Kate: I got your back.

[Upon seeing "the numbers" written on the hatch]
Hurley: Oh dude, no way...

Season Two[edit]

Man of Science, Man of Faith [2.1][edit]

Hurley: (frightened, whispering to himself) 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42.. 4, 8 we're dead 15 doomed and dead 16 23..
Kate: Hurley, are you okay?
Hurley: Oh, yeah, awesome. I just have to pee. (Kate moves to the hatch) Great idea, dude, go over to the burning death hole.

Hurley: What's that thing where doctors make you feel better just by talking to you?
Jack: Bedside manner?
Hurley: Yeah, that. Yours sucks, dude.

Charlie: Jack, where's Doctor Arzt?
Jack: He.. uh.. he didn't make it.

Desmond: Lower your gun, or I'll blow his damn head off, brother!
Jack: You.

Adrift [2.2][edit]

Sawyer: [returning to the island] We're home.

Desmond: [showing Locke an Apple II computer] Can you use this?
Locke: I haven't seen one of these in twenty years!

Sawyer: [after pulling a bullet out of his shoulder] You got a Band-Aid?

Sawyer: [to Michael on the remains of the raft] What are you gonna do, splash me?

Jin: (first speaks Korean) Others! Others!

Michael: Well I guess I know why the shark is hanging around. Your shoulder.
Sawyer: Oh, well I'll just stop bleeding then.

Desmond: What did one snowman say to the other snowman?
Locke: I don't know what you're talking about...
Desmond: Get rid of the knife. You're not HIM!

Orientation [2.3][edit]

Locke: [after viewing Dharma Initiative orientation film] We're gonna need to watch that again.

Locke: I just don't think 30 dollars are worth getting angry about.
Moderator: Well, Francine feels like 30 dollars...
Locke: Francine feels a little too much if you ask me. You all do. I mean, seriously: "So-and-so never called me back", "my mother stole 30 dollars from me". I never even knew who my parents were. A couple of years ago, my birth mother found me, and... She told me, I was special! And through her, I met my real father. Great news, right? Well, he pretended to love me just long enough to steal my kidney because he needed a transplant! And then he dropped me back in the world like a piece of trash. Just like he did on the day that I was born! You want your damned 30 dollars back? I want my kidney back!!!

Desmond: So I started pushing the button too. And we saved the world together for a while, and that was lovely. Then Kelvin died, and now here I am all alone. The end.

Locke: Why do you find it so hard to believe?
Jack: Why do you find it so easy?
Locke: It's never been easy!!

Jack: Why are you running, you DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU'RE RUNNING FROM!

Desmond: See ya in another life brotha.

Everybody Hates Hugo [2.4][edit]

Jin: [in English] Hi there, Hurley.
Hurley: Jin, you're here.
Jin: That's right.
Hurley: Dude, you speak English!
Jin: No, you're speaking Korean.
Hurley: [in Korean] I am? [A man in a chicken costume appears next to Jin.] What's he doing here?
Jin: Everything's going to change.
Hurley: What?
Jin: Everything's going to change. Have a cluckity cluck-cluck day, Hugo.
Giant Chicken: [female voice] Hurley!

Carmen Reyes [Hurley's mom]: The only time you move is to lift a drumstick out of the bucket. Every day is the same thing, Hugo: work, TV, chicken. You have to change your life, Hugo. You think someone else will do it for you? Maybe if you pray every day, Jesus Christ will come down from heaven, take two hundred pounds, and bring you a decent woman and a new car. Yes — Jesus can bring you a new car!
Hurley: Maybe I don't wanna change. Maybe I like my life.
[the telephone rings in the next room, offscreen]
Carmen: Oh! That must be Jesus! [she leaves the room and answers the phone] Hola? Momento. [shouting to Hurley] It is Jesus! He wants to know what color car you want!

Charlie: [to Hurley] I'm sorry, I must have confused it with the 900 trillion I am worth myself. And this baby's made of chocolate lollipops. So if you'll excuse us, I'm going to flap my wings and fly off this island.

Michael: Everything is cool. We had a talk and they believe we were on the plane too.
Sawyer: Swell. I guess we can all sue Oceanic together.

Ana-Lucia: You do what I tell you. When I say, "move" you move. When I say "stop" you stop. When I say "jump", what do you say?
Sawyer: You first.

Bernard: Back where you guys came from. Is there a woman named Rose.
Sawyer: Black chick, In the 50's.

Locke: Change is good, Hugo.
Hurley: You know? People say that, but it's not true man. Trust me, I know. And guess who gets to be the bad guy? Who has to say 'No you can't have peanut butter for the cute blonde and her...poor...island baby? You know who? It's me!

Locke: I'm sorry Hugo. You don't get to quit.

...And Found [2.5][edit]

Hurley: Dude, dogs will eat anything. When I was a kid, my dog, Buster... I had this drawer where I'd throw in all my change, right... and I guess there were some Smarties in there... so, like, the next day, Buster craps out a buck thirty-five in nickels.

Sun: Did you see me?
Locke: Saw you ripping apart your own garden? No.
Sun: (Smiles)
Locke: Sometimes I wish I had a garden to rip apart.
Locke: I heard you have lost your wedding ring.
Sun: Yes. I have been looking for it everywhere.
Locke: You know, I have once lost something valuable to me. Luckily, I found it later.
Sun: How?
Locke: By finding it the way everything gets found.
Sun: (Staring at Locke)
Locke: I stopped looking.

Sawyer: So what's your name anyway?
Mr. Eko: Mistereko.
Sawyer: Mr. Eko
Mr. Eko: (Smiling) Yes.
Sawyer: Whats that like Mister Ed?

Abandoned [2.6][edit]

Ana-Lucia: [Upon hearing the Whispers after Cindy is abducted by The Others] RUN!!!!.

Boone: [To Shannon, at her father's funeral] Death sucks, doesn't it?
Shannon: [To Sayid] I need you to believe in me. No one does; they think I'm some kind of joke. They think I'm worthless.

The Other 48 Days [2.7][edit]

Goodwin: We're not savages
Ana-Lucia: If I were a savage I would've cut his finger off already... That's tomorrow.

Ana Lucia: You've been waiting 40 days to talk?
Mr. Eko: You waited 40 days to cry.

Collision [2.8][edit]

Jack: [after Kate persuades a semiconscious Sawyer to swallow medicine] That was good. I, uh, never learned the whole whisper-in-his-ear thing in medical school.

Sayid: [to Ana-Lucia] Almost 40 days ago on this very island I tied a man to a tree and tortured him. I tortured him as I've tortured many men... men whose voices I still hear in the night. Should you kill me? Maybe you should. Maybe you were meant to.

Sayid: What would be the use in killing you if we're already dead?

Sayid: She has no plan! She only has her guilt, and her gun!

What Kate Did [2.9][edit]

Hurley: So... Rose's husband is white. Didn't see that one comin'.

[Kate fears that she's hallucinating.]
Kate: Do you see that?
Sawyer: If you mean the big-ass horse standing in the jungle... then, uh, yeah.

[Sawyer thinks they've finally been rescued, Kate helps him outside into the jungle]
Sawyer: Son of a bitch!

Eko: Don't mistake coincidence for fate.

Diane: I made my bed Katherine.
Kate: Your bed's gone ma.

[They chat in the computer system]
Walt:Who is this?
Michael:This is Michael. Who is this?

Kate: I'm sorry.
Jack: Are you?
Kate: Yeah I'm sorry! I'm sorry that I'm not as perfect as you, I'm sorry that I'm not as good!
Jack: What's going on with you?
Kate: Just forget it
Jack: No, don't walk away from me.
Kate: Let go of me!
[Kate struggles in Jack's arms and begins to cry]
Kate: Don't! I can't!
Jack: It's okay! It's okay! Hey...
Kate: I can't. This place, this place is crazy! I can't - it's driving me nuts!
Jack: I know, it's okay, it's all right, okay?
Kate kisses him

Ana Lucia: Are you going to try to convince me that everyone here doesn't hate me?
Jack: Only if you try to convince me that every woman in the world isn't crazy.

The 23rd Psalm [2.10][edit]

Charlie: What are you gonna do, beat me with your Jesus stick? I find it kind of ironic that your scripture stick has dried blood on it. What kind of priest are you?

Charlie: Most people, when they see a monster made of black smoke, they run!

Eko: How many of the statues do you have? The Virgin Mary statues?
Yemi: I have 300.
Eko: I will take all of them. I guess we are both sinners now.
Yemi: Perhaps we are. But God will forgive me Eko.

The Hunting Party [2.11][edit]

Jack: [to Sawyer] Hey, what are you doing?
Sawyer: What's it look like? (arming self) I'm coming with ya.
Jack: You're still on antibiotics.
Sawyer: It's a good thing I'm traveling with my doctor then.

Sawyer: [to Jack] What'd she do to you?
Jack: What?
Sawyer: Kate. What'd she do?
Jack: She didn't do anything.
Sawyer: Right. Yellin' at her because she wanted to help get Mike back makes a lot of sense.
Jack: Why don't you go back and see if I hurt her feelings?
Sawyer: I'm just sayin'...
Jack: Yeah. I know. You love her.

Sawyer: [to Locke] Oh, I don't know, Mr. Clean, I probably would have gone around Mt. Vesuvius.
Locke: Why'd you choose that name?
Sawyer: Ain't it obvious? All you need is an ear-ring and a mop.

Hurley: So what do you think is the story with that Libby chick?
Charlie: Story?
Hurley: She's kind of cute, right? You know, in an I've-been-terrorized-by-the-Others-for-forty-days kind of way?
Charlie: Yeah, there is that.
Hurley: I think I have a chance with her. I mean, it's a classic desert island scenario.

Sawyer: [to Locke] Well, yeah, there's my favorite leaf. How could I forget this place?

Locke: [to Jack] Who are we to tell anyone what they can or cannot do?

[The hunting party is talking to Mr. Friendly.]
Mr. Friendly: [to Jack] Let me ask you something. How long have you been here on the island?
Jack: 50 days.
Mr. Friendly: Fuuh! 50 days. That's about two whole months. Tell me, when you go over to man's house for the first time, do you take off your shoes? Do you put your feet up on his coffee table? Do you walk to the kitchen and eat food that doesn't belong to you? Open doors to rooms you got no business opening?
[Jack, Sawyer and Locke stare silently]
Mr. Friendly: You know, somebody a whole lot smarter than anybody here once said, since the dawn of our species, man has been blessed with curiosity. [to Jack] You know the other one 'bout curiosity, don't you Jack?
[Jack stares silently]
Mr. Friendly: This is not your island. This is our island and the only reason that you're livin' on it, is because we let you live on it.
Jack:[Laughs] I don't believe you.
Mr. Friendly: You don't believe what?
Jack: I think that you have two other guys out there with guns. I think there's more of us than there are of you. I think if you had any real power you wouldn't have had to send a spy. Ethan?
Mr. Friendly: That's an interesting theory...LIGHT EM UP![A dozen torches ignite in the trees, revealing they are surrounded]
Mr. Friendly: Now we seem to have a misunderstanding. But we're drawing a line right here and if you cross we are gonna go from misunderstanding to...something else. Now lay down your guns, turn around, and go home.
Jack: No.

Jack: [to Ana Lucia] How long would it take to train an army?

Sawyer: [to Mr. Friendly] You and me ain't done Zeke.

Fire + Water [2.12][edit]

Locke: Are you using again?
Charlie: Kate sees a horse. Pretty much everyone has seen Walt wandering around in the jungle, but when it's Charlie, it must be the bloody drugs!
Locke: It's funny you didn't answer the question.

Eko: Do you know what baptism is?
Claire: It's what gets you into heaven.
Eko: It is said that when John the Baptist baptized Jesus the skies opened up and a dove flew down from the sky. This told John something -- that he had cleansed this man of all his sins. That he had freed him. Heaven came much later.

Charlie: Who the Hell are you, John? You're not Aaron's responsibility! Where were you when he was born, where were you when he was taken? You're not his father, you're not his family!
Locke: Neither are you, Charlie.

Locke: You've given up the right to be believed!

The Long Con [2.13][edit]

Jack: What are you doing?
Sawyer: Shh I'm like this close to getting the high score on Donkey Kong.

Sawyer: Hate to interrupt whatever the Hell it is you're doing. What are you doing?
Locke: I'm alphabetizing.
Sawyer: Oh, sure. Sun gets attacked in the jungle and you figure it's a good time to start the damn Dewey decimal system. Good thinking!

Sawyer: You even made Locke take a swing at you. Hell, that's like getting Gandhi to beat his kids.

[Sawyer reveals to the survivors that he now has possesion of the guns.]
Sawyer: So how about you listen up...'cause I'm only gonna say this once. You took my stuff. While I was trying to get us help...get us rescued...you found my stash and you took it. Divied it all up. My shaving cream...my batteries...even my beer! And then something else happens, y'all have decided that these two boys here [to Jack and Locke] are going to tell you what to do and when to do it. Well I'm done taking orders. And I don't want my stuff back. Shaving cream don't matter. Batteries don't matter. Only thing that matters now... are guns. And if you want one, you gonna have to come to me to get it. Oh! you wanna torture me don't ya?? [to Sayid]. Show everybody else how civilized you are? Go ahead...but I'll die before I give them back. And then you'll really be screwed, won't ya?

Kate: [finding an article]: Alright, 10 Ways To Tell If He's A Sensitive Man.
Sawyer: This ought to be good.
Locke: [passes by] Morning.
Kate: Morning, John.
Sawyer: Now there's a sensitive man.

Kate: Not everyone is like you, Sawyer.
Sawyer: I guess that's why old Jacko and Ana-loo-loo didn't ask me to join their revolution. What, you didn't hear about their little army?

Sawyer: There is a new sheriff in town boys! Y'all best get used to it.

Sawyer: [to Charlie] I'm not good person, Charlie. Never did a good thing in my life.
Sawyer: No it's not. This one's black. Different weave. It's all in the details. And they're wrong.

Sawyer: [to Kate] You couldn't get away. You versus Sun -- hot oil death match -- my money's on you, Sheena.
Kate: Thanks for your vote of confidence.
Kate:Jack, how well do you know Ana-Lucia? It's just... the Others. I was out there with you. I heard that man say that if we stayed away they would leave us alone. And we've left them alone. So why would they attack us a few days later?
Jack: Well if it wasn't them, who was it?
Kate:Like I said. How well do you know Ana-Lucia?
Jack:Where were you today?
Ana-Lucia: A lot of places.
Jack: During the rainstorm?
Ana-Lucia: You think I had something to do with Sun getting grabbed? Now where would you get an idea like that?
Cassidy: A little bit.
Sawyer: Well here's the good news baby. Everyone's scared. And the thing they're scared of most, is missing an opportunity.
Sawyer: [To Cassidy]Remember when you said I was all you ever wanted? Well now you know better.

One of Them [2.14][edit]

Rousseau: Sayid, for a long time he will lie.

Rousseau: He is one of them.

Sayid: [to Henry] I was 23 years old when the Americans came to my country. I was a good man. I was a soldier. And when they left, I was something different. For the next six years, I did things I wish I could erase from my memory, things which I never thought myself to be capable of. But I did come to learn this. There is a part of me that I'm always capable of. You want to know who I am? [pause] My name is Sayid Jarrah...and I am a torturer.

Sayid: [Shouting at Henry] YOU WOULD REMEMBER HOW DEEP! YOU WOULD REMEMBER EVERY SHOVELFUL, EVERY MOMENT! You would remember what it felt like to place her body inside. You would remember if you buried the woman you loved... YOU WOULD REMEMBER, [quiets and sobs] if it were true!

[four minute warning alarm is sounding]
Jack: [to Locke] Open the door.
Locke: Let go of me Jack.
Jack: Or what? You wanna push the button? Open the door.
[one minute warning alarm blares]
Jack: It's under a minute now John, you better think fast.
Locke: You wouldn't.
Jack: What? I "wouldn't" what?
Locke: If we don't... you would risk everyone's lives?
Jack: You talked me into pushing that button once John, but it's yours now. You're the one who won't risk it. You. Me? I don't think anything's going to happen when we get down to zero.
Locke: [struggling] Jack-
Jack: You wanna see what's gonna happen? Let's just SEE what's gonna happen!

Sawyer: Why don't you shut up, Hammo. Or your ranch disorder's going to be the new lead item on the coconut internet.

"Henry Gale": What do you want?!
Sayid: [punches "Henry"] I WANT YOU TO TELL ME THE TRUTH!

Sayid: But there's no way that I could explain this to Locke and Jack for they have already forgotten.
Charlie: Forgotten what?
Sayid: That you were strung up by your neck and left for dead. That they kidnapped Claire and she was gone for weeks during which God only knows what happened to her. That these people, these Others are merciless and will stop at nothing to get what they want. So, tell me Charlie, have you forgotten?

Maternity Leave [2.15][edit]

Locke: [to Eko] If the alarm goes off, don't tell [Henry Gale] what it's for.
Eko: ...What is it for?

Jack [to Locke]: Well, John, let me ask you this: we don't have a long term plan for the button, but we keep pushing it, don't we? Look, until we know who he is - whether or not he's telling the truth - we have to keep doing what we're doing. If you've got a better idea, let's hear it.
Gale [faintly, from his cell]: Why don't you let me go?

The Whole Truth [2.16][edit]

[Ana-Lucia is questioning Henry, though the cell is silent.]
Jack: How do we know he hasn't snapped her neck?
Locke: How do we know she hasn't snapped his?

Ana-Lucia: Sayid, can I talk to you?
Sayid: Of course.
Ana-Lucia: Alone?
Sayid: Whatever you need to say, you can say it here.
Ana-Lucia: It's about the hatch.
Charlie: Oh, you mean the guy locked in the closet there?

Sayid: Do Jack and Locke know about this?
Ana-Lucia: Jack and Locke are a little too busy worrying about Locke and Jack.

Charlie: You looking at my bum?
Ana-Lucia: No, I'm looking at your gun.
Charlie: My what?
Ana-Lucia: Maybe you should give the gun to somebody who knows how to use it.
Charlie: Maybe I will. As I recall, the last time you had a gun you murdered someone.

Anna Lucia: [to Sayid] People don't like me. [Pauses] I tried to get them to, most of my life.[Pauses] I guess I just, gave up a while back. I mean, I am what I am. But you, you've got a good reason to hate me. [Pauses] I'm sorry. I'm sorry for what I did.

"Henry Gale"Men reject their prophets and slay them, but they love their martyrs and honor those whom they have slain. [to Jack] So what's the difference between a martyr and a prophet?"
Jack: "Either way, it sounds like you end up dead."

Kate: [to Sun] You're preganant.

Sawyer: [to Jin] Hey, daddy-o.

[Henry is eating cereal]
"Henry Gale": Course if I was one of them - these people that you seem to think are your enemies - what would I do? Well, there'd be no balloon. So I'd draw a map to a real secluded place, like a cave or some underbrush, good place for a trap. An ambush. And when your friends got there, a bunch of my people would be waiting for 'em. Then they'd use them to trade for me. [jokingly] I guess it's a good thing I'm not one of them huh?
[Jack and Locke stare at Henry]
"Henry Gale": You guys got any milk?

[In Korean]
Sun: Oh yes, I was trying to trap the son of a fisherman.

Lockdown [2.17][edit]

Sawyer [to Jack]: How about you put your mangos where your mouth is?

Sawyer: Wanna play real stakes? Name 'em!
Jack: It's a pile of fruit, man.
Sawyer: And I want it back.
Kate: Should I go get a ruler?

Jack: So, what's done is done.

Sawyer: When I asked you what you wanted for stakes, why didn't you ask for the guns?
Jack: When I need the guns, I'll get the guns.

Locke: Who are you?
Gale: My name is Henry Gale. I'm from Minnesota and I crashed on this island just like you.

Anthony Cooper: I killed myself off because there are two men out there who were going to beat me to it.
Locke: Oh, what did you do, steal their livers?

Ana-Lucia [sitting below the balloon]: Why isn't it raining here?

Charlie [looking at parachute]: What the bloody hell is that?

Locke: [to Helen] Will you marry me?

Locke: Thank you Henry. Thank you for not leaving me.

Sayid [to 'Henry Gale']: We did find your ballon, Henry Gale. Exactly as you described it. We also found the grave you described. Your wifes grave. The grave you said you dug with you own bare hands. It was all there. Your whole story. Your alibi. It was all true. But still I did not believe it to be true. So I dug up that grave... And found not a woman inside but there was a man, a man named Henry Gale.

Dave [2.18][edit]

[Hurley is in a mental institution, about to take his medication]
Dave: Dude, if you wanna get out of here with me, don't take the horse tranquilizer.

Dave: You know what tastes even better than freedom? Cheeseburgers.

Charlie: Any of you guys see a plane last night?
Sawyer: Yeah I saw it Tattoo. I just decided not to tell anyone.

Sawyer: You're like locusts! How about a little order here?
Charlie: Shouldn't we make someone trustworthy take care of this?
Sawyer: Oh, like you Baby Napper?

Libby: OK, hey, guys, guys: How about no-one's in charge, OK? I'm sure everyone can manage to just take what they need
Sawyer: Great plan, Moonbeam. After That we can sing "Kumbaya" and do trust falls.

Sawyer: I've got enough food now to open a chain of mini marts. Hey, you think Sayid needs a job?

Kate: So he just attacked you, huh?
Sawyer: Try to contain yourself, Freckles
Kate: What? I'm worried. You look like you got your ass kicked.
Sawyer: Don't you got an adventure to get to? I think Timmy fell down a well over that way.

Libby: That's a lot of peanut butter.
Hurley: Well, I'm going to need a lot of protein where I'm going.
Libby: And where are you going?
Hurley: Back to the caves. No one lives there now. So I won't bother anybody. I'm going to live alone and be one of those guys. You know the crazy guys, with no clothes, and the big beard... who's naked and throws doodie at people.

Hurley: Look, you cant help me, ok? Nobody can.

Hurley: I like that I have a good relationship with my mom. I like making my Grandpa Tito laugh. I like... chicken
Dr. Brooks: Well, that last one wasn't about you, Hugo.
Hurley: I like that I like chicken?

Dr. Brooks: Dave isn't your friend, Hugo. Because Dave doesn't exist.

Dave: When you do wake up, come find me. I'm sure I miss you.

Henry: God doesn't know how long we've been here, John. He can't see this island any better than the rest of the world.

Henry: I never entered the numbers, I never pushed the button.
Locke: You're lying.
Henry: No. I'm done lying.

[Charlie sees Eko sawing wood]
Charlie: What are you makin'?
Mr. Eko: Hold that end.
Charlie: Is it a Starbucks?

Hurley: Did either of you see a guy run through here...in a bathrobe...with a coconut?
Charlie: No... I saw a polar bear on rollerblades with a mango.

S.O.S. [2.19][edit]

Bernard: Have you all forgotten that we crashed on this island? It's like none of you want to go home again!

Bernard: [To Eko] I liked you better when you just hit people with your stick!
Charlie: (Looking at Eko after Bernard left) I like you just the way you are.

Kate: I'm sorry I kissed you.
Jack: [pause] I'm not.

Sawyer: [About Jack] Oh happy day, here comes Dr. Giggles.

Two For the Road [2.20][edit]

Locke: Why would your own people want to kill you?
Henry: Because the man in charge... He's a great man, John, a brilliant man... but he is not a forgiving man.

Henry: I was coming for you, John. You're one of the good ones.

Locke: [trying to get Sawyer to give them the guns] Where are they, James?
Sawyer: You too, Brutus?

Sawyer: [After he and Ana-Lucia have sex] I guess that takes cuddlin' off the table.

Michael [staring at the gun]: I'm sorry.
Ana-Lucia: For what?
(Michael shoots Ana-Lucia. Libby appears)
Libby: Michael?!
(Startled, Michael shoots Libby. He then opens the gun vault, aims the gun at Henry, then shoots himself in the left shoulder)

? [2.21][edit]

[Eko is chopping wood]
Ana-Lucia: What are you building?
Eko: Well, hello Ana.
Ana-Lucia: Hello yourself. So are you going to tell me? What is it?
Eko: I'm building a church.
Ana-Lucia: (folds arms) Now why in the hell would you wanna do that?
Eko: Because I was told to.
Ana-Lucia: Told to by who?
Eko: I was just told. I think it was in a dream.
Ana-Lucia: A dream like this one? (Ana-Lucia is shown bloody from when Michael shot her)
[Eko looks scared/upset]
Ana-Lucia: You need to help John.

Yemi: [to Eko] You must help John, he has lost his way. You must make him take you to the question mark.

Eko: The question mark, John; where is it?
Locke: You know what? You keep chasing after your own shadow.
Eko: I know you don't want to show me, but you must.
Locke: No, I don't have to show you anything.
Eko: Then I'm sorry.
[Eko knocks Locke out.]

Locke: You're lost already?
Eko: Your map is inexact.
Locke: No kidding.

Eko: Your map is inexact. These landmarks... is this a river?
Locke: No, it's a wavy line. I didn't draw it, I just transcribed it. I told you, I don't even know if it is a map.
Eko: Let's assume it is.
Locke: What's the axe for?
Eko: I don't know yet.

Kate: I'm curious about something.
Sawyer: Yeah, what's that?
Kate: How did Ana-Lucia get your gun?
Sawyer: I don't know, she must have lifted it off me.
Kate: She pick-pocketed your gun? How'd she do that?
Sawyer: Well, if I knew how she did it, she wouldn't be able to do it, now would she?

Locke: Boone. Boone made it fall. Then he died. A sacrifice that the island demanded.

[after viewing the orientation film for The Pearl]
Eko: Do you want to watch that again?
Locke: No... No, I've seen enough.

Locke: What are you doing?
Eko: I'm taking this back with us.
Locke: Why?
Eko: Because they may be important.
Locke: Important? I'm sorry, weren't you watching the same thing I was?
Eko: Yes, and I believe the work you have been doing is more important now than ever.
Locke: Work?
Eko: Pushing the button.
Locke: That's not work! That's a joke. Rats, in a maze, with no cheese.
Eko: We are being tested.
Locke: Tested?
Eko: The reason to do it, pushing the button, is not because we are told so in the film.
Locke: Well, then what is the reason, Mr. Eko?
Eko: We do it because we believe we are meant to. Isn't that the reason you pushed it, John?
Locke: I was never... meant to do anything! Every single second of my pathetic little life is as useless as that button! You think it's important? You think it's necessary? It's nothing, it's meaningless; and who are you to tell me that it's not?

Hurley: [to an unconscious Libby] I'm sorry I forgot the blanket.

Locke: [wakes up after being knocked down by Eko] You hit me... Why would you...?
Eko: Because you were being difficult.
Locke: Are you insane?

Three Minutes [2.22][edit]

Sawyer: So what happened out there in the jungle?
Jack: Exactly what he said happened. He found a camp-
Sawyer: I ain't talking about Mike. You and Freckles. Before you found him, you all were gone all night.
Jack: We were caught in a net.
Sawyer: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Jack: It means we got caught in a net.
Sawyer: Is that what they're calling it these days?

Michael: I hear you're a priest.
Mr. Eko: Yes.
Michael: I guess you believe in hell, then?
Mr. Eko: For a brief time, I served in a small parish in England. Every Sunday after mass, I would see a young boy waiting at the back of the church. Then one day, the boy confessed to me that he had beaten his dog to death with a shovel. He said the dog had bitten his baby sister on the cheek and he needed to protect her. And he wanted to know whether he would go to hell for this. I told him that God would understand, and that he would be forgiven, as long as he was sorry. But the boy did not care about forgiveness. He was only afraid that if he did go to hell that the dog would be there, waiting for him.

Sawyer: Who's gonna talk?
Jack: What?
Sawyer: The funeral. Who's gonna talk?
Jack: I'm sure Hurley'll wanna say something about Libby.
Sawyer: I never even knew her last name. Ana-Lucia.
Jack: It's Cortez.
Sawyer: Cortez. Well there you go. [silent pause] I screwed her.
Jack: What?
Sawyer: That's how she got my gun. Ana, she jumped me. We "got caught in a net."
Jack: Why're you telling me this, Sawyer?
Sawyer: Cause you're about the closest thing I've got to a friend, Doc. And cause she's gone- Well at least now we get to kill somebody.

Mr. Friendly: [after Michael spits in his eye] I expected that. Don't do that again.

Ms. Klugh: [coldly, after Michael demands to see Walt] You have three minutes.

Live Together, Die Alone [2.23][edit]

Jack: So, before you ran off, I guess you just forgot to mention that you still have a sailboat. Why'd you come back?
Desmond: [laughing] Do you think I did it on purpose? I was sailing for two and half weeks, bearing due West and making 9 knots. I should have been in Fiji in less than a week. But the first piece of land I saw wasn't Fiji, was it? No. No it was here... this, this island. And you know why? Because this, is it. This is all there is left. This ocean and this place here. We are stuck in a bloody snowglobe! There's no outside world! There's no escape! So, just go away, huh. Let me drink.
[Jack gets up to leave]
Desmond: Are you still pushing it?
Jack: Yeah, we're still pushing it.

Master Sergeant: Set of keys; one pocket watch, gold plated; one photograph; one book, Our Mutual Friend. Why didn't you bring that inside?
Desmond: To avoid temptation, brother. I've read everything Mr. Charles Dickens has ever written - every wonderful word. Every book except this one. I'm saving it so it will be the last thing I ever read before I die.
Master Sergeant: Nice idea, as long as you know when you're going to die. [He stamps "discharged" on some papers] Lance Corporal Desmond David Hume your sentence is hereby complete and you are now and forever dishonorably discharged from the Royal Scotts Regiment of Her Majesty's Armed Forces. Long live the queen. Enjoy your sodding book.

Sayid: I need your boat.
Desmond: I wouldn't waste your time. There's nothing out there pal.
Sayid: I'm not going out there. I need to get to the north shore of the island, and quickly.
Desmond: Off to see the hostiles are ya?
Sayid: The what?
Desmond: You know what? Ignorance is bliss.

Sayid: I'm sorry if what I said was unclear. But I asked Jin to come.
Sun: You need someone to translate. And you also need at least two people who know how to sail.
Sayid: Desmond managed on his own.
Sun: And look where he ended up.

Locke: What did one snowman say to the other snowman?
Desmond: "Smells like carrots."
Locke: Hello, Desmond.
Desmond: "Hello" yourself, box man.
Locke: [reaching for the bottle] Do you mind?
Desmond: Oh, I insist. So you managed to fix the computer, then, did you?
Locke: World's still here, ain't it?
Desmond: I'm not so sure about that, brother.
Locke: Refresh my memory, Desmond. How long did you say that you were down there in the Hatch?
Desmond: 3 years.
Locke: Desmond, what if I told you that for all that—all those years that you and all the men before you were down there pushing that button—what if I told you that it was all for nothing?
Desmond: I'd ask you how the hell did you know something like that?
Locke: I found another hatch—another station on the Island. They called it the Pearl, and I saw a film there—an orientation film. And it said that everything that was happening in our hatch wasn't real—that it was a test—a psychological experiment.
Desmond: You're lying.
[Locke reaches in his pack and pulls out the Pearl video.]
Locke: You want to take a walk? I'll make the popcorn.
Desmond: You're so sure it's not real, then just stop pushing the button!
Locke: Well, I have. Except, unfortunately, someone else decided to start. So you're going to sober up. We're going to get a good night's sleep. Tomorrow we're going to find out what happens if that button doesn't get pushed.

Inman: Are you him?
Desmond: What?
Inman: What did one snowman say to the other?
Desmond: What are you talking about? Who are you?
Inman: I'm Inman. Kelvin Inman.
Desmond: What, what happened to my boat?
Inman: I found you washed up on the beach. There was no boat.
[We hear the alarm start to sound. Inman enters the Numbers.]
Desmond: What was all that about, then?
Inman: Just saving the world.

Hurley: Did that bird just say my name?
Sawyer: Yeah it did, right before it crapped gold.

Sawyer: When the Doc told me you all got caught in a net, I thought he meant, er- something else.
Kate: Since when did you and Jack start talking about me?

Sayid: (about the "foot") I do not know what is more disquieting---the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

Penelope: What are you running from, Desmond?
Desmond: I have to get my honor back. And that's what I'm running to.

Charlie: John! Eko is very upset, John!

Charlie: John, look, seriously, you are about to be detonated!

[Eko is about to detonate the dynamite inside the hatch to blow open the blast door]
Charlie: Eko, wait. Just wait a second. I-I don't think it's a good idea, Eko. We're in a very confined area. [Eko lights the fuse, and ducks behind the wall] Oh, bollocks!

Locke: [to Desmond] The Pearl is a psychological station, full of TV monitors. And uh, two men sat in viewing chairs and filled notebooks, with observations on what happens in here. And then they put the notebooks in pneumatic tubes, sent 'em back to their headquarters, so they could evaluate us, as an experiment.
[Desmond sighs and walks around the room]
Locke: What?
Desmond: What if you've got it backwards?
Locke: "Backwards"?
Desmond: What if the experiment wasn't on the two men here but on the two men in there?

Desmond: Kelvin! Hey, Kelvin.
[Desmond runs to the computer and enters the Numbers. Desmond hears Kelvin singing and sees a bottle of booze on the floor. He opens a grate on the floor and finds Kelvin drunk under the Hatch holding a key dangling from a chain.]
Inman: I couldn't do it. I couldn't do it.
[Desmond makes his way over to Kelvin who is lying next to a small alcove. We see a lid has been opened to reveal a place to insert the key and a sign that says Caution: System Termination.]
Desmond: What is this?
Inman: This is the only other way out, partner.
Desmond: What are you talking about?
Inman: Failsafe. Turn this key and this all goes away.
Desmond: What's behind that wall, Kelvin? Huh? What was the incident?
Inman: Electromagnetism, geologically unique. The incident—there was a leak. So now the charge builds up and every time we push the button it discharges it before it gets too big.
Desmond: Why make us do it—push the button? If we, if we can just...
Inman: [laughing and closing the lid] Here's the real question, Desmundo—do you have the courage to take your finger out of the dam and blow the whole thing up, instead?

[Desmond is studying the print-out taken from The Pearl]
Locke: What are you doing?
Desmond: ... When did you come here?
Locke: What?
Desmond: The island. When did you come here? How long ago?
Locke: Sixty, sixty-five days-
Desmond: What was the date, what was the date?
Locke: September 22nd. It was September 22nd.
Desmond: I think I crashed your plane.

Desmond: We need to push the button.
Locke: No, we don't!
Desmond: Do you not hear me, brother? I crashed your bloody plane?
Locke: How did you manage to do that?
Desmond: On that day, those numbers turned to hieroglyphics. And when the last one came down this whole started to shake! And that screen? That screen filled up with "system failure," [pointing to the printout] System Failure! And I know what they are. 92204—September the 22nd, 2004, the day your planed crashed! It's real! It's all bloody real!! Now, push the damn button!!
Locke: I know what I saw! It's a lie; it's not real! None of it is real!
Desmond: You don't want to push the button? Then I will.
Locke: No!
[Locke grabs the computer and smashes it on the floor. Desmond looks horrified. There's about 3 minutes on the timer.]
Desmond: You killed us. You killed us all.
Locke: No. I just saved us all.

Penelope: [written in a letter to Desmond] Dearest Des, I am writing this letter to you as you leave for prison. And I've hidden in the one place you would turn to in a moment of great desperation. I know you go away with the weight of what happened on your shoulders. And I know the only person who can ever take it off is you. Please don't give up, Des. Because all we really need to survive is one person who truly loves us. And you have her. I will wait for you. Always. I love you, Pen.

Locke: [to Eko] I was wrong.

Ms. Klugh: Hugo, you can go back to your camp.
Hurley: What?
Ms. Klugh: Go back. Your job is to tell the rest of your people they can never come here.
Hurley: But what about my friends?
"Henry Gale": Your friends are coming home with us.

"Henry Gale": I'm not happy about the arrangement that was made with you Michael, but we got more than we bargained for when Walt joined us, so I suppose this is what's best. And you let me go, set me free—you lived up to your word. We live up to our word, too. Do you know how to drive a boat?
Michael: Yeah, I can drive a boat.
"Henry Gale": Good, then you're going to take this boat and follow a compass bearing of 325, and if you do that exactly, you and your son will find rescue.
Michael: That's it? I follow the bearing and me and my son get rescued?
"Henry Gale": Yes.
Michael: How do you know I won't tell people about where I was?
"Henry Gale": Maybe you will, maybe you won't. But it won't matter. Once you leave, you'll never be able to get back here. And my hunch is you won't say a word to anybody because if you do, people will find out what you did to get your son back.
Michael: My friends—I was promised you wouldn't hurt them.
"Henry Gale": A deal's a deal.
Michael: Who are you people?
"Henry Gale": We're the good guys, Michael.

Portugese man 1: [Translated from Portugese. The man sees the computer alerting to an electromagnetic anomaly] What?
Portugese man 2: How long has it been doing that?
[First man goes over to the equipment and hurriedly looks through a book]
Portugese man 2: That's it, isn't it? We missed it again...
Portugese man 1: We didn't miss it!
[An alarm starts beeping and the first man goes to a computer screen.]
Portugese man 2: So it's not a false alarm this time?!
Portugese man 1: Just shut up and call!!
[On the other end, a woman answers the phone]
Woman: Hello?
Portugese man 2: Ms. Widmore? It's us. I think we found it.
'[Penelope Widmore looks shocked as the episode cuts to black]

Season Three[edit]

A Tale of Two Cities [3.1][edit]

Adam: [On Stephen King's Carrie] It's not even literature, it's popcorn
Amelia: And why isn't it literature, Adam, I'm dying to know?
Adam: There's no metaphor. It's by-the-number religious hokem-pokem.
Amelia: No metaphor?
Adam: It's science fiction. Now I know why Ben isn't here.
Juliet: Excuse me?
Adam: I know the host picks the book but seriously, Julie, he wouldn't read this in the damn bathroom.
Juliet: Well, Adam, I am the host and I do pick the book, and this is my favorite book. So I am absolutely thrilled that you can't stand it.
[Amelia grins]
Juliet: Silly me for sinking so low as to select something that Ben wouldn't like. Here I am thinking that free will still actually exists on this...
[The room begins to shake violently]

Ben: [Sees that Juliet holding the book, Carrie] So I guess I'm out of the book club.

Tom: Hey, you got yourself a fish biscuit! How'd you do that?
Sawyer: Figured out your complicated gizmos, thats how.
Tom: It only took the bears two hours.
[Sawyer contemplates briefly]
Sawyer: How many of 'em were there?

Ben: [referring to the handcuffs on the table] Sorry, I'm going to have to ask you to put those on, Kate.
Kate: And if I don't?
Ben: Then you don't get any coffee.

Juliet: What do you do, Jack? What's your profession?
Jack: I'm a repo man. You know, when people don't pay their bills I go into the bank and collect their possessions. I'm a people person so I really love it.
Juliet: Are you married?
Jack: No. I never saw the point. What about you? What's your job, besides making sandwiches?
Juliet: Oh, I didn't make it. I just put the toothpicks in.

Jack: [screaming at the top of his lungs] TELL ME WHERE MY FRIENDS ARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Glass Ballerina [3.2][edit]

Ben: Your flight crashed on September 22 2004. Today is November 29. That means you've been on our island for 69 days, and, yes, we do have contact with the outside world, Jack. That's how we know that, during those 69 days, your fellow Americans re-elected George W. Bush, Christopher Reeve has passed away. Boston Red Sox won the World Series.
[Jack starts to laugh]
Ben: What?
Jack: [still laughing] If you wanted me to believe this, you probably should've picked somebody else, besides the Red Sox.
Ben: No, they were down, three games to none, against the Yankees in the league championship, and then they won eight straight.
Jack: Sure, sure, of course they did.
[Ben turns on a video of Game 4 of the World Series, in the bottom of the ninth.]
Joe Buck: ...back to Foulke...Red Sox fans have longed to hear it! The Boston Red Sox are world champions! [Jack gets up, moves towards the glass screen, stops laughing and appears lost for words] The Red Sox celebrate in the middle of the diamond...
Ben: [turns off video] That's home, Jack, right there, on the other side of that glass, and if you listen to me, you trust me, if you do what I tell you, when the time comes, I'll take you there. I will take you home.

Pickett: Alright, here's the jig - see these rocks, here? That's where you two come in. [points to Kate] You're going to chop them loose. [points to Sawyer] And you're going to haul them out of here.
Kate: You expect me to work in this dress?
Pickett: Well, it's up to you? You can take it off if you want.
Sawyer: [to Pickett, unconvincingly] How dare you?
Pickett: If you need anything, you raise your hand. You get 10 minutes for lunch.
Sawyer: I got a question, boss.
Pickett: No questions.

Sawyer: Are you having fun yet, Freckles?
Kate: Quit staring at my ass.
Sawyer: Give me something else to stare at.

Kate: Why did she call you James?
Sawyer: [sighs] 'Cus that's my name. Noticed somethin' else, too.
[pauses, grins]
Sawyer: You taste like strawberries.
Kate: You taste like fish biscuits.

Sun: Why are you lying to me, Sayid?
Sayid: And what would you know about lying, Sun?
Sun: You're putting our lives in danger.
Sayid: I'm fairly certain our friends have been captured. There are tracks all over the dock. They're fresh -- as recent as yesterday.
Sun: You said this dock was abandoned.
Sayid: That would be part of the lying you mentioned.

Sun: If they get past you, that means my husband is dead. And I won't care anymore.

Sun: Stop! Or I'll shoot!
Colleen: No you won't, Sun. I know you, Sun-Hwa Kwon. And I know you're not a killer. But despite what you may think, I'm not the enemy. We are not the enemy. But if you shoot me, that's exactly what we'll become. [takes a step closer to Sun]
Sun: Stop! I will- I'll shoot you. [Sun shoots Colleen in the stomach]

Further Instructions [3.3][edit]

Charlie: So, where are Eko and Desmond? Are they off being mute and building structures as well?

Charlie: What the sodding hell is a sweat lodge?

Charlie: You're not taking drugs are you, John? I only ask because of the strict zero tolerance policy you've enacted, and I wouldn't want you to have to start punching yourself in the face.

Charlie: You are aware John, that I detest you, aren't you? You do remember repeatedly punching me in the face and accusing me of using heroin when I was not.

Charlie: Hairspray? Now, I hate to be the one to point this out to you...
Locke: [smiling] It's not for me.

Hurley: Bear? Is that you? Who's there?
Desmond: You alone, brother?
Hurley: Uh, yeah.
Hurley: [seeing that Desmond's naked] Whoa! Dude! I'm not alone.
Desmond: Beach camp's right over there. Can you get me some clothes?
Hurley: What happened to yours?
Desmond: I woke up in the jungle like this.
Hurley: So, like, the hatch blew off your underwear?
Desmond: Fine, you want to discuss this in great detail right now? Let's do it.
Hurley: No, no, that's okay. I've got something in here. How do you feel about tie-dye?

Boone: [as Locke tries to call out to Jack, Kate and Sawyer] There's nothing you can do for them yet. First you have to clean up your own mess.

Boone: [to Locke, after he sees Eko's Jesus stick drenched in blood] They've got him, John. You don't have much time.

Every Man For Himself [3.4][edit]

Pickett: Do you love this guy?!

Paulo: You play golf?
Desmond: I'm Scottish. Cheers.

Juliet: I'm a fertility doctor. I'm not used to death.

Jack (after failing to save Colleen): Time of death... (realizes that there is no clock) She's gone.

Sawyer: Did you just kill that bunny?

Desmond: You've got a problem with your roof.
Claire: What?
Desmond: Look, maybe you should move down the beach for the night so we can fix it.

Charlie: Whatcha doing brotha?
Desmond: I was just offering to fix this roof here.
Charlie: Roof? It's fine. If there's a problem, I'll fix it. I'm quite handy. I was building a church before Eko . . . exploded.

Charlie: (about Desmond) I don't know, we're going to have to get that guy another button to push.

Juliet: It doesn't work that way over here Jack, we make decisions together.
Jack: Really? Because when I was holding that broken plate to your neck, he seemed happy to just let you die. It seemed like he made that decision alone.

Ben: God, I hate needles.

Ben: (to the bunny) Hippity-hop, let's move it.

Ben: (about the heartrate monitor) If and when it beeps, you're gonna wanna relax yourself. Do some deep breathing. Some yoga.

Ben: Good morning. Let's go for a walk.

Sawyer: What, don't you read? It's from Of Mice and Men. You'd like it. Puppies get killed.

Ben: A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody. It don't make no difference who the guy is, as long as he's with ya. I tell ya, I tell ya a guy gets too lonely and he gets sick.
Sawyer: What the hell are you talking about?
Ben: It's from Of Mice and Men. Don't you read?

The Cost of Living [3.5][edit]

Nikki (from trailer): What is that?

Eko: Yes, I am ready. I ask for no forgiveness, Father, for I have not sinned. I have only done what I needed to do to survive. A small boy once asked me if I was a bad man. If I could answer him now, I would tell him that when I was a young boy, I killed a man to save my brother's life. I am not sorry for this. I am proud of this. I did not ask for the life I was given, but it was given nonetheless, and with it, I did my best.
Yemi: You speak to me as if I was your brother.

Ben: Do you believe in God?
Jack: Do you?
Ben: Two days after I found out that I had a fatal tumor on my spine, a spinal surgeon fell out of the sky. If that's not proof of God I don't know what is.

Locke: Eko, what is it?
[Eko dies]
Sayid: What did he just say, John?
Locke: He said--'We're next.'

I Do [3.6][edit]

Kevin: Police, open the door.
Kate: [as 'Monica'] Uh. Everything's alright in here.
Kevin: Ma'am, we have reason to believe someone could be dangerous could be in the motel. We've been conducting room-to-room service.
Kate: [as 'Monica] I'm alone, officer.
Kevin: Someone could be holding you at gunpoint, forcing you to say that. Please open the door.
Kate: [as 'Monica] I don't think I should.
Kevin: Ma'am, you have three seconds before I break this door down. 1.. 2..
[Kate opens door.]
Kevin: Wanna get it on?

Jack: [After explaining what the surgery for Ben's cancer will entail] You need to be in surgery yesterday.
Ben: Alright then, whatever you need, it's yours. I'm ready.
Jack: No, I think you misunderstood me. I didn't say I was gonna do it. I just wanted you to understand how you're gonna die.[Ben and Juliet are astonished] You think I believe you people? You think I trust you? You think I'm just going to do the surgery and then I'm just gonna hope that you let me go?!
Juliet: Jack!
Jack: NO, DON'T!
Ben: Well Jack, I'm very disappointed in your decision.
Jack: Well Ben, at least you won't have to be disappointed for very long.

[Something goes wrong during surgery]
Other: His blood pressure's dropping. He shouldn't be bleeding like that.
Jack: No, he shouldn't. [Punches out the Other]

Kate: I can't leave without you!
Jack: Yes, you can! Go!
Kate: Jack, I can't!
Jack: Go! Now!
Kate: Jack, I can't!
Jack: Kate, Dammit, RUN!
[Episode ends]

Not in Portland [3.7][edit]

Edmund Burke: [on mobile phone] Because you're insufferable. And you're mean. Well, you asked me for the truth, Mom.

Jack: Tell me
Kate: Tell you?
Jack: The first day on the beach, the day of the crash, the story that I told you. If you're safe, tell me.
Tom: Do you think this is the best time?
Jack: Shut up!
Kate: You were doing surgery on a girl, and you messed up. You made a mistake. You tore something on her back, and all the nerves came loose. And you said the fear was so... real. And you didn't know what to do. So you counted to five.. [Kate starts to cry] And then you weren't afraid anymore. And then it was just gone. And you fixed her, you saved her.
Jack: (after a pause) I need you to make me a promise, Kate.
Kate: Jack-
Jack: Promise me that you'll never come back here for me. Don't come back, Kate.

[Ben wakes up mid-surgery]
Tom: Ben's awake...
Juliet: How?
Tom: Shephard said he's a spinal surgeon, not an anesthesiologist.

Jack: What are you DOING HERE!!!!!!

Flashes Before Your Eyes [3.8][edit]

[Charlie and Hurley are ransacking Sawyer's stash]
Hurley: Dude, I don't know about this.
Charlie: See, you're looking at this all wrong. He would want us to do this.
Hurley: He'd want us to ransack his tent and take his stash? Yeah, that sounds exactly like Sawyer.
Charlie: Well, he stole all this in the first place. I mean, people need food, they need medical supplies, they need... [Finds adult magazines] ...shocking amounts of pornography.

[Desmond has just saved Claire from drowning]
Charlie: How did you know? How did you know she was drowning?
Hurley: I'll tell you how he knew. That guy...sees the future, dude.

Ms. Hawking: This is wrong. You don't buy the ring. You have second thoughts; you walk right out that door. So, come on, let's have it.
Desmond: I don't know what you're on about.
Ms. Hawking: You don't buy the ring, Desmond.
Desmond: How do you know my name?
Ms. Hawking: Well, I know your name as well as I know that you that don't ask Penny to marry you. In fact, you break her heart. Well, breaking her heart is, of course, what drives you in a few short years from now to enter that sailing race, to prove her father wrong, which brings you to the island where you spend the next 3 years of your life entering numbers into the computer until you are forced to turn that failsafe key. And if you don't do those things, Desmond David Hume, every single one of us is dead. So give me that sodding ring!

Stranger in a Strange Land [3.9][edit]

Isabelle: [about Jack's tattoo] He walks amongst us, but he is not one of us. That's what they say.
Jack: That's what they say. It's not what they mean.

Juliet: I hear you only liked them grilled.
Jack [Smiles]: I missed the toothpicks too.
[Juliet gives him the sandwich]
Jack: Let me see.
Juliet: Jack...
Jack: They marked you? Let me see.
[Juliet shows him her mark]
Jack: If you would break off that aloe plant there...
Juliet: It's ok, Jack.
Jack: Please, please do it.
[Juliet breaks off a piece, and Jack puts it on her back, their hands almost touching]
Juliet: Why did you help me?
Jack: He told you that you could leave the island. He told me the same thing. We're going to make sure he keeps his promise.
Juliet: We're? How are we going to do that?
Jack: Together.

Tricia Tanaka Is Dead [3.10][edit]

Charlie: So, when's it going to happen?
Desmond: When's what going to happen?
Charlie: Don't play stupid with me, brother.
Desmond: I was drunk. If I said anything...
Charlie: I have a right to know when I'm gonna die.
Desmond: It doesn't work like that.

Sawyer: Hey, Oliver Twist! Where the hell is my stuff?
Charlie: What stuff?
Sawyer: You know good and damn well what stuff. I had books, food, porno, bottle of scotch...
Desmond: Apologies for the scotch, mate.

Hurley: Dude, that beer's been sitting there since before Rocky 3. Maybe even 2. It's probably poisoned by now.
Sawyer: [Indicates Roger's corpse] Skeletor seems to like it.

[Sawyer is helping Jin practice speaking English]
Sawyer: I'm sorry.
Jin: I'm sorry.
Sawyer: Okay, nice. Keep it coming.
Jin: Uh, you were right.
Sawyer: Okay. That's two. Hit me.
Jin: Those pants don't make you look fat.
Sawyer: Now you got it. Only three things a woman needs to hear.

Sayid: Kate, if you were looking for help to find Jack, why didn't you ask us?
Kate: Two reasons: you don't know where to look and you're not motivated. And I don't blame you. Why would you want to go on another trek across the island, risk more lives just to get Jack back?
Locke: You're wrong.
Kate: Oh, really? They why didn't you come after-
Locke: Not about the motivation, just about knowing where to look. We got a compass bearing, and I'm pretty sure if we follow it, it'll lead us right to 'em.
Kate: How?
Sayid: Because of the way the sunlight hit Mr. Eko's stick when John was burying him.

Sawyer: What's your problem, Jumbotron?
Hurley: Shut up... Red... Neck... Man!
Sawyer: [amused] Touché.

Enter 77 [3.11][edit]

[Kate and Sayid are inside the Flame station with Mikhail, who claims to be a member of the DHARMA Initiative; Mikhail is sewing Sayid's bullet injury and the cat is scratching the carpet]
Mikhail: Будьте вежливы, они - мои гости, Надия.
Sayid: What did you just say?
Mikhail: I told Nadia to be polite, because you are my guests.
Sayid: Nadia?
Mikhail: After Nadia Comaneci. The greatest athlete the world has even known. We have the same birth date. [...mumbling] Now, excellent work if I say so myself.
Sayid: Thank you, Mikhail.
Mikhail: Perhaps, you can give me your forgiveness if I offer you some ice tea. I will also check on your friend.
Sayid: What's wrong?
Kate: Doesn't make any sense. Why would they let him stay here, with all this stuff, all this equipment?
Sayid: Actually, it makes perfect sense.
Kate: What are you talking about?
Sayid: The reason they let him stay here is because he is not DHARMA. He is one of them.
Kate: He shot you and you just let him-why are we still sitting here?
Sayid: We are sitting here, Kate, because I am certain he is not alone.

Par Avion [3.12][edit]

[Kate, Sayid, and Locke are holding Mikhail prisoner]
Locke: Remind me why we're keeping him alive.
Sayid: What do you suggest? That we shoot him like a dog?
Locke: No. I like dogs.

The Man from Tallahassee [3.13][edit]

Locke: The Man from Tallahassee? What is that some kind of code?
Ben: No John, unfortunately we don't have a code for "there is a man in my closet holding a gun to my daughter's head". Although we obviously should.

Ben: Would you mind helping me get into my chair. No tricks, I promise. I just want some dignity. You of all people should understand what means to want some dignity. Thank you. So tell me John, how do you plan on piloting our submarine. Its a complicated piece of machinery. You just don't press submerge.
Locke: I'll figure something out. For all you know I was a commander in the Navy. Put your arm around my neck and I'll lift under your knees.
Ben: What's in the pack, John? If you met Mikail that means you were at the communications station, which means you found the explosives. So you're not planning on piloting the submarine anywhere, you're planning to destroy it. I know you, John Locke.
Locke: You don't know me at all.
Ben: I know you were born in California. I know that you were raised in foster care. I know that you wasted a big part of your life in Tustin, pushing papers at a place that manufactures industrial boxes. I know that you spent the four years prior to arriving on this island in a wheelchair, and I know how you ended up in it.

Jack: [To Kate] I will come back here for you.

Locke: Where do you get electricity?
Ben: We have two big hamsters running around in this giant wheel in our secret underground lair.
Locke: Yeah, that's funny.

Ben: I know you think you need to do this John, but if you blow up my submarine, I'll have a big problem with my people.
Locke: Is that supposed to be an incentive not to blow it up?
Ben: I was born on this island; not many of my people can say that. Most of them were recruited and brought here, and as much as they love this place, as much as they would do anything to defend it, they need to know that they can leave if they want to. The sub maintains that illusion.
Locke: So you're lying to them?
Ben: No... they're here because they want to be here. Some of them are just not ready to make a full commitment yet. But you John, you've already made that commitment. And now you have a choice, because if you stop and think, I can show you things. things I know that you want to see very badly. Let me put it so you'll understand: picture a box. You know something about boxes, don't you John? What if I told you that somewhere on this island there is a very large box and whatever you imagined, whatever you wanted to be in it, when you open that box, there it would be. What would you say about that John?
Locke: I'd say that I hope that box is big enough for you to imagine up a new submarine.
Ben: Why are you so angry John?
Locke: Because you're cheating. You communicate with the outside world whenever you want to, you come and go as you please, you use electricity and running water and guns. You're a hypocrite. You don't deserve to be on this island. If you had any idea what this place was you wouldn't be putting chicken in your refrigerator.
Ben: You have been on this island for 80 days, John. I have been here my entire life. So what makes you think you know this island better than I do?
Locke: Because you're in the wheelchair, and I'm not.

Anthony Cooper: I'm a con man, not a murderer.

Exposé [3.14][edit]

[Nikki's character Corvette in the TV show Exposé has been shot]
Howard Zukerman: Brilliant, Nikki. As always. You know you don't need to die, we can bring you back next season.
Nikki: How?
Zukerman: She didn't necessarily die. We could say she was wearing a bullet-proof vest.
[Nikki briefly opens her gown, revealing her character's skimpy costume]
Zukerman: Or bullet-proof breast...
Nikki: I'm just a guest star, and we all know what happens to guest stars.

Nikki: Razzle Dazzle!

Charlie: Sun? It was me.
Sun: What?
Charlie: It was me who took you. Not the Others. I wasn't myself, after Locke hit me. After he humiliated me. Sawyer told me I could get even by helping him steal the guns. We just made it look like the Others. I didn't mean to hurt you.
[Sun walks away]
Charlie: I'm sorry....

[Sawyer is digging Nikki and Paulo's grave when Sun is walking towards him]
Sun: Charlie told me it was your idea to kidnap me.
Sawyer: You're gonna tell Jin?
Sun: No.
Sawyer: Why not?
Sun: Because then we have to dig another grave.
[Sun puts the diamonds in Sawyer's hands]
Sawyer: Why are you giving me these?
Sun: Because they are worthless here.
Sawyer: See. And I thought I was gonna get out of this....
[He stops when Sun punches him in the face and walks away]

Left Behind [3.15][edit]

Sawyer: All right, let's do it.
Hurley: Do what?
Sawyer: I'm ready to do it. Make amends, change the vote. I don't want to be banished, okay?
Hurley: Dude, you stink. What is that, fish? Did you try to gut one yourself? How did you not learn that by now? I mean, we've been here like, three months.
Sawyer: Could we just do this?
Hurley: Do what?
Sawyer: Make nice.
Hurley: Apologize for calling me all those names.
Sawyer: I'm really sorry I called you rotund.
Hurley: Really?
Sawyer: You're worse than a girl!

[Sawyer has just realized that Hurley has tricked him into being nice by telling him the survivors were voting to banish him]
Sawyer: You son of a bitch. There wasn't ever going to be no vote.
Hurley: Wasn't it nice, being nice?
Sawyer: You tricked me into being decent? That's gotta be the lamest con in the history of cons!
Hurley: Wasn't a con, dude. If you're going to be our temporary leader you need to do some damage control.
Sawyer: Leader? What the hell are you smoking?
Hurley: Jack's gone, Locke's gone, Kate and Sayid...you're all we got. Paulo and Nikki died. We all look to you. Then again, you tried to steal their diamonds, but we wanted to look to you. Look around. You made everyone happy. Just for today, they can eat boar, laugh, and forget that they're totally screwed. And you did that for 'em, dude. You.
Sawyer: What if I don't want to be the leader?
Hurley: Yeah, well, I don't think Jack wanted it either. Sucks for you, dude.

[Kate has just dislocated Juliet's shoulder during a fight, and both are now hiding from the smoke monster]
Juliet: Do you think it's gone? Are we safe?
Kate: Are you serious? You've never seen that?
Juliet: What, you don't believe me? You can always pull my other shoulder out of its socket.
Kate: I wasn't trying-
Juliet: Don't flatter yourself. This is the fourth time it's been dislocated... Give me your hand.
Kate: Why?
Juliet: 'Cause I want you to pop it back in.
Kate: No, I'm not gonna-
Juliet: You're gonna. Right now, it feels like there's broken glass under my skin. And if it weren't for you, I would be on my way home right now.
Kate: Jack told me not to come back to protect me! Because he didn't want me to get hurt!
Juliet: Is that what you think?
Kate: Yeah, that's what I think!
Juliet: We have cameras on the cages, Kate. All of them. He saw you. You and Sawyer. The reason Jack told you not to come back wasn't because he didn't want you to get hurt. It was because you broke his heart. So. Grab my wrist. Push up. And twist!

One of Us [3.16][edit]

Catch-22 [3.17][edit]

D.O.C. [3.18][edit]

The Brig [3.19][edit]

[Sawyer sees Hurley and Jin outside of a tent]
Sawyer: What the hell are y'all doing?
Hurley: What the hell are you doing?
Sawyer: Goin' to take a leak.
Hurley:...Yeah well, so were we.
Sawyer:...Well, alrighty then.

[Ben leads Locke to where Anthony Cooper, his father, is tied up. The Others looks on]
Ben:[Hands Locke a knife] I know it won't be easy. But the quicker the better.
Cooper:[After Ben ungags him] You're kidding me, right? You expect him to kill me?
Ben: John, the hesitation you're feeling is just the part of you that still feels that he has a perfectly good explanation for stealing your kidney. Throwing you out of an eight-story window. Don't you wanna be free from him?
Cooper: The hesitation he's feeling is because he is a spineless--
Locke:[Growing anxious] Shut up! I, I've gotta think...
Ben: Don't think, John.
Cooper: You're wasting your time, bug-eye. Me and him have been through all of this. All he wants is his daddy.
Locke: Shut up! I SAID SHUT UP!
Ben: Let go of him, John.
Locke: Why are you doing this to me?
Ben: You're doing this to yourself. As long as he's still breathing, you will still be that same sad, pathetic little man who was kicked off of his walkabout tour because you couldn't walk!
[Flaring with anger, Locke presses his knife to Cooper's throat. Just as he is about to kill him, he turns away, humiliated]
Cooper:[Mocking] I'll be here the rest of the week, John, if you change your mind.
[Ben spins and hits Cooper across the face with his cane, knocking him out. He then takes Locke's knife away and addresses The Others]
Ben: I'm sorry. He's not who we thought he was.

Cooper: Guess I didn't raise no dummies.
Sawyer: The hell's that mean?
Cooper: It means that bald headed bastard outside the door is my son.
Sawyer: Come again?
Cooper: My son. As in I'm his father. You do speak English?
Sawyer: How did you get here, to the Island?
Cooper: Island? OK. I'm driving down I10 through Tallahassee when bam, somebody slams into the back of my car. I go right into the divider at seventy miles an hour, the next thing I know, the paramedics are strapping me to a gurney, stuffing me into the back of an ambulance and one of them actually smiles at me as he pops the IV in my arm. And then, nothing. Just, black. And the next thing I know I wake up in a dark room tied up, gag in my mouth, and when the door opens, I'm looking up at the same man I threw out a window, John Locke. My dead son.
Sawyer: And he's dead cause you threw him out a window?
Cooper: No he survived that. But it paralysed him, permanently. He's dead because the plane he was flying on crashed in the Pacific.
Sawyer: Well I got bad news for ya pops, cause I was on that plane with your son. He sure as hell wasn't crippled. And we didn't crash in the Pacific, we crashed here on this Island.
Cooper: You sure its an Island?
Sawyer: Well what else is it?
Cooper: Little hot for heaven isn't it?
Sawyer: [Sarcastically] Oh OK, so we're dead?
Cooper: They found your plane on the bottom of the ocean. One minute I'm in a car wreck and the next minute I'm in a pirate ship in the middle of the jungle. If this isn't hell friend, then where are we?
Sawyer: Why did you throw Locke out a window?
Cooper: He was becoming a nuisance. I conned him into giving me one of his kidneys. He never got over it.
Sawyer: [Pauses] Conned?
Cooper: Yes sir, conned.
Sawyer: What's your name?
Cooper: Hmm?
Sawyer: Your name.
Cooper: A conman goes by many names friend. I've been Alan Seward, Anthony Cooper, Ted MacLaren, Tom Sawyer, Louis Jackson, and Paul...
Sawyer: Tom Sawyer.
Cooper: I was young and Huck Finn was taken. And the ladies loved that one. Made me charming.
Sawyer: Well how about that.
Cooper: How about what?
Sawyer: Sawyer's my name too
Cooper: What's the matter with you?
Sawyer: You ever been to Jasper, Alabama?
Cooper: Why?
Sawyer: Have you or haven't you?
Cooper: Yeah I been to Jasper. Don't tell me I'm your daddy?
Sawyer: No. You killed my daddy.
[Sawyer gets his letter out of his pocket – the one to Mr. Sawyer]
Sawyer: Read it.
Cooper: “Dear Mr Sawyer”. What is this?
Sawyer: Just read it.
Cooper: “You don't know who I am, but I know who you are. And I know what you done. You had sex with my mother, and then you stole my dad's money all away, so he got angry and he killed my mother, and then he killed himself” blah blah blah blah. So what? Is this supposed to be you, you wrote this letter? Hey wait a second. Did you take my name because you were on some kind of revenge kick?
Sawyer: Keep reading.
Cooper: Easy, easy, don't get all worked up. Look, I ran that con two dozen times. If your mother was one of the...
Sawyer: Mary. Her name was Mary.
Cooper: Mary from Jasper, Alabama. Yeah, I remember her. She practically begged me to take her thirty-eight thousand dollars and to rescue her from her sorry little life.
Sawyer: You finish the letter.
Cooper: Look, I only took her money. It ain't my fault your dad overreacted. If he pulled the old murder suicide then I'm sure he's down here somewhere. Er, maybe you could take this up with him...
Sawyer: FINISH IT!!!
Cooper: OK. OK.
[He rips up the letter into pieces, and Sawyer attacks him, choking him with the chains hanging from the ceiling]
Sawyer: You wanna go to hell? You wanna go to hell!!
[Cooper chokes and Sawyer keeps pulling until he stops moving and kills him. He then releases him and his body falls to the ground.]

The Man Behind the Curtain [3.20][edit]

Ben: We're here. You'll want to turn off your flashlight, John.
Locke: Why?
Ben: Jacob feels the same way about technology as you do. Once I open this door, there's no turning back. Are you sure this is what you want? So be it. Jacob, I'm here with John Locke. We're coming in now. Jacob, this is John. Don't you going to say hello, John?
Locke: What?
Ben: I told you he wouldn't.
Locke: Who? What are you talking about?
Ben: You can't see him?
Locke: See who?
Ben: Jacob. He's sitting right here in this chair. Yes, I know, but he insisted.
Locke: What is this?
Ben: You wanted the secrets of the island, well here they are. This is the man who can answer every single... I am not! He made me bring him here! Did you think that that was my... Sir, may I finish?!
Locke: You're crazy.
Ben: Excuse me?
Locke: You don't know anything about the island, do you? You just made it all up.
Ben: Jacob, please, I can't hear him if you're going to talk...
Locke: Stop... Stop... Shut up! You're putting on a show for me! Or, do you... Do you really think there is someone there?
Ben: I know there is someone there.
Locke: You don't know anything.
Ben: I'm sorry you feel that way, John. And I'm sorry that you're too limited to see.
Locke: You're pathetic.
Jacob: Help me.
Locke: What did you just say?
Ben: I didn't say anything.
Locke: Oh yes you did. I heard you. You said...
Ben: That's enough, you've had your fun!
Locke: What was that?
Ben: That was Jacob.

Ben: What did you hear in there, John? What did Jacob say to you?
Locke: He didn't say anything to me. You did.
Ben: What are you talking about?
Locke: There is no Jacob, Ben. I'm not going to be taken in by the little show you put on last night. You're a fraud. And it's time your people were told the truth. And this is not the way we came!
Ben: I'm taking us back another way. I wanted to show you something first.
Locke: I've seen enough.
Ben: You know, John, you're not wrong. Some of the things I've told you, some of the things I've told everyone, are not true.
Locke: Like what?
Ben: Well, for starters, I wasn't born on this island.
Locke: Then where did you come from?
Ben: That's what I want to show you.

Ben: This is where I came from, John. These are my people. The DHARMA Initiative. They came here seeking harmony, but they couldn't even coexist with the Island's original inhabitants. And when it became clear that one side had to go, one side had to be purged, I did what I had to do. I was one of the people that was smart enough to make sure that I didn't end up in that ditch, which makes me considerably smarter than you, John.
[Ben shoots Locke and he falls in the mass grave]
Ben: What did Jacob say to you?
Locke: Why did you do this?
Ben: Because you heard him. Now I need to know what he said.
Locke: "Help me."
Ben: John, I'm not going to ask you again! What did he say to you?
Locke: He said... "help me."
[Ben looks troubled, and flinches for a moment]
Ben: Well I certainly hope he helps you, John.

Greatest Hits [3.21][edit]

Charlie: Anyone want to venture a guess as to what Jack is going to be showing us out in the middle of nowhere?
Hurley: I don't know… stuff—probably secret stuff.
Charlie: Why does everything have to be such a secret? How about some openness for a change?
Hurley: We kept the parachute lady secret.
Charlie: Ah, that's different.
Claire: Different, how?
Charlie: Well, because we weren't out there playing football with them.

Jack: When Juliet told me they were coming, the first thing I thought was: where the hell are we going to hide this time? But hiding's pointless; they're just going to keep coming back, so I went out and I found some help. And for the past few days, she's been bringing dynamite back from the Black Rock. For the very first time, we know exactly what they want, when they're coming to get it and they have no idea. We're going to be waiting for them. So Juliet's going to mark the tents with the white rocks just like she was told to, but there's not going to be any pregnant women inside; there's going to be plenty of what we just used on that tree. So tomorrow night, we stop hiding, we stop running, we stop living in fear of them, because when they show up, we're going to blow them all to hell.

Sawyer: What the hell are you doing here, Karl?
Karl: They're… coming… my people…
Sawyer: Sorry you came all this way for nothing, but we already know.
Karl: Then why are you still here?
Sawyer: 'Cause when your people show up here tomorrow night, we're going to be ready for 'em.
Karl: Tomorrow? No. No, they're coming tonight. They're coming right now!

Desmond: I'm sorry, brother, but this time - this time you have to die

Jack: Better get going. Rousseau said it's about a day's walk up to the radio tower.
Sayid: I'm not taking them up to the tower—you are.
Jack: Excuse me?
Sayid: You're not staying behind.
Jack: This was my idea.
Sayid: And I'm perfectly capable of executing it.
Jack: I owe them!
Sayid: What are you more concerned about: killing the Others or getting our people off this island? This afternoon you said you were our leader. It's time for you to act like one. Lead them to the radio tower, Jack and then take us all home.

Sayid: Hey.
Jack: Hey.
Kate: So here we go again, huh?
Jack: [Laughs.] Here we go again.

[Charlie's "greatest hits" written on a sheet of paper]:
5. The first time I heard myself on the radio.
4. Dad teaching me to swim at Butlins.
3. The Christmas Liam gave me the ring.
2. Woman outside Covent Garden calls me a hero.
1. The night I met you [Claire].

Desmond: We're here.
Charlie: I want you to give this to Claire for me.
Desmond: What is it?
Charlie: It's the five best moments of my sorry excuse for a life, my greatest hits. You know, memories are all I've got.

Charlie: What about your girl? Penny?
Desmond: What about your girl?

Through the Looking Glass [3.22][edit]

Bonnie: [on radio, to Ben] One of them is here.
Ben: Which one?
Bonnie: I don't know. he won't say.
Charlie: It's Charlie! Tell him I said hi!

Charlie: (written on his hand) NOT PENNY´S BOAT

Charlie: So much for fate.

Hurley: Attention Others. Come in Others. If you're listening to this, I want you to know that we got you bastards. And unless the rest of you wanna be blown up you best stay away from our beach...

[Bernard is preparing to ambush the Others]
Rose: If I told you that I'd help you with your SOS sign, would you change your mind?
Bernard: No ma'am.
Rose: Then I want you to say it again.
Bernard: Rose...
Rose: Say it, Bernard.
Bernard: I am a dentist, I am not Rambo.

Rose: If you say "live together, die alone" to me, Jack, I'll punch you in the face.

Walt: John, you have work to do.

Jack: Sawyer, it's a suicide mission without guns.
Juliet: I know where there are some guns. Ethan left a stash near the beach.
Jack: Juliet, you don't have to do that.
Juliet: Yeah, Jack, I kinda do.
Sawyer: Let's do this.
Jack: Don't do anything stupid.
Juliet: I won't if you won't.
[They kiss]

Jack: Why don't you get my father down here? If I'm drunker than he is, then you can fire me!

Ben: Not so long ago, Jack, I made a decision that took the lives of over forty people in a single day. I'm telling you this because history is about to repeat itself, right here, right now.
Jack: Let me guess you've got us surrounded and if I don't do what you say you're gonna, you're gonna kill all of my people?
Ben: No, Jack, you are.
Jack:[Laughs] And how am I going do that, Ben?
Ben: The woman you've been traveling with. The one who parachuted onto the island from that helicopter. She's not who she says she is.
Jack: She's not, huh?
Ben: No she's not.
Jack: Then who is she?
Ben: She's a representative of some people who've been trying to find this island, Jack. She's one of the bad guys.
Jack: Oh, I almost forgot, you're the, you're the good guys.
Ben: Jack listen to me. If you phone her boat, every single living person on this island will be killed. So here's what has to happen. Get that device, that phone she carries with her, and give it to me. I will turn around, we'll walk back to my people, you will turn around and walk back to your people.
Jack: I'm not going anywhere.
[Jack and Ben both stand up at the same time, staring each other down]
Ben: May I have my walkie talkie back?
Jack: What?
Ben: There's something you need to hear. Please?
[Jack gives it to him]
Ben: Tom are you there?
Tom: Yes I'm here.
Ben:[To Jack] Your plan killed seven of my people, but the ones you failed to kill are now holding your friends: Jin, Sayid, Bernard, at gunpoint.
Sayid: Jack, don't give him anything.
[Ryan hits Sayid]
Bernard: Leave him alone!
Ryan: I said shut up!
Jack: And what's to stop me from snapping your neck?
Ben: Tom unless you hear my voice in one minute, shoot all three of them.
Tom: Got it.
Ryan: I said don't move.
Ben: Bring me the phone, Jack.
Sayid: Don't negotiate with him-
Ben: Forty Five seconds.
Jack: No. I'm getting them all of the island. All of them!
Ben: Let me ask you something, Jack. Why do you wanna leave the Island? What is it that you so desperately want to get back to? You have no one. Your father's dead, your wife left you, moved on with another man. Can you just not wait to get back to the hospital? Get back to fixing things? It's twenty seconds now. Just get me the phone, Jack.
Jack: No.
Ben: Ten seconds. Bring me the phone.
Jack: No.
Ben: I'm not bluffing!
Jack: I WON'T DO IT!
Ben: Five. Four. Three.
Jack: No.
[Three shots are heard over the walkie talkie, Jack cringes with anguish]
Ben: I'm so sorry, Jack.
[Furious, Jack tackles Ben to the ground and beats him half to death. He then takes the walkie talkie]
Jack: Tom are you there?
Tom: Yeah, Jack, I hear ya.
Jack: I'm going to lead my people up to the radio tower. And I'm going to make a call and get them all rescued. Every one of them. And then I'm gonna come find you. And I'm gonna kill ya.

Kate: What happened? What'd he say?
Jack: It's not important right now. Just, get everything together...
Kate: Jack, your knuckles. Here
[Kate begins cleaning his bruised knuckles]
Kate: What happened?
Jack: He killed them. Bernard, Jin, Sayid, all three of them. He radioed the beach. And I let it happen. We can't tell Rose. Or Sun, not yet. We gotta keep moving, I promised Sayid that we would keep moving.
Kate: So why did you bring him back? Why didn't you just kill him?
Jack: Because I want him to see it. I want him to experience the moment that we get off this island, and I want him to know he failed. Then I'll kill him.

Ben: Alex... this is your mother.

Kate: Why are you sticking up for Saywer? He'd never do it for you.
Jack: Because I love you.

Ben: Jack, I know you think you're saving your people, but you need to stop this.. It's a mistake.
Jack: Listening to you was the mistake.
Ben: This will be your last chance Jack. I'm telling you, making that call is the beginning of the end.

[Locke has just killed Naomi]
Jack: JOHN!
Locke:[Aims his gun at Jack] Step back, Jack.
Jack: What did you do?
Locke: What I had to. Now step back.
[The phone rings, Jack and Locke look at it]
Locke: Stay away from the phone.
[Jack runs and grabs the phone as Locke tries to shoot it]
Jack: What are you doing, John?
Locke: I don't wanna shoot you.
Ben: Do it, John! Shoot him! Do what you need to do-
[Ben is silenced as Rousseau knocks him out]
Locke: Please. Put the phone down.
Jack: No. You're done keeping me on this island.
Locke:[Thumbs back the hammer] I will kill you if I have to.
Jack: Then do it.
Kate: Jack!
[Locke hesitates then lowers the gun]
Locke:[Sadly] Jack, you're not supposed to do this.
[Locke leaves as Jack answers the phone]

Kate: Hey.
Jack: Hey.
Kate: [after a pause] Saw you on the news. Still pulling people out of burning wreckage, huh.
Jack: Old habits.
Kate: You look terrible.
Jack: [laughs] Thanks.
Kate: Why'd you call me, Jack?
Jack: [displaying the as-yet unknown obituary] I was hoping that you heard... that you would go to the funeral.
Kate: ...Why would I go to the funeral?
Jack: [after a long pause] Been flying a lot.
Kate: What?
Jack: That golden pass they gave us? Been using it. Every Friday night I fly from L.A. to Tokyo... or Singapore... or Sydney. I get off... have a drink... fly home.
Kate: ...why?
Jack: Because I want it to crash, Kate. I don't care about anyone else on board. Every little bump we hit, turbulence... I actually close my eyes, and I pray... I pray that I can go back.
Kate: This is not going to change...
Jack: No, I'm sick of lying. We made a mistake.
Kate: I have to go. He's going to be wondering where I am.
Jack: We were not supposed to leave.
Kate: Yes, we were. [she begins to leave and get in the car]
Jack: We have to go back, Kate. [the car pulls away] We have to go back!
[A plane takes off behind Jack as the episode ends]

Season Four[edit]

The Beginning of the End [4.01][edit]

Hurley: I'm one of the Oceanic Six! I'm one of the Oceanic Six!

Charlie: (written on his hand) THEY NEED YOU

Abbadon: Mr Reyes. Hello. My name is Matthew Abaddon. I'm an attorney for Oceanic Airlines. Can we talk for a few minutes?
Hurley: Ok.
Abbadon: I'm here, Mr Reyes, because we heard about your recent (pauses) episode. Your arrest. Your incarceration here. Frankly we feel terrible about it. So, on behalf of Oceanic, I'd like to extend you an invitation for a little upgrade.
Hurley: What kind of upgrade?
Abbadon: To a facility where the paint isn't peeling off the walls. Where you'd have your own bathroom. You could see the ocean from there...
Hurley: I don't wanna see the ocean.
Abbadon: No problem.
Hurley: Actually thanks, I'm, I'm fine right here.
Abbadon: Are you fine Mr Reyes?
Hurley: What do you mean?
Abbadon: You're in a mental institution.
Hurley: Who'd you say you were again? I'd like to see a business card.
Abbadon: (Abaddon reaches into his pocket, and presents nothing)I must have left them at home.
Hurley: Then we're done, dude. (Hurley gets up)
Abbadon: Are they still alive?
Hurley: (Pauses) What?
Abbadon: You heard me.
Hurley: Nurse. Nurse! Get out of here! You better get out of here! Help me. Help me, he's after me. No no no. That guy's after me. Help me. (Hurley looks over at Abbadon and he leaves)

[Upon seeing Locke, Jack immediately attacks him, beating him to the ground. Locke goes for his gun, but Jack grabs it away and aims it him. The group looks on, shocked.]
Locke: You won't shoot me, Jack. Anymore than I was gonna-[Is cut off when Jack pulls the trigger. But nothing happens.]
Locke:[Amazed] It's not loaded...
[Jack begins to continue beating Locke before he is pulled off by Sawyer and Sayid]
Jack: Let go of me![To Sayid] Do you know what he did?!
Sayid: Yes, I know what he did!
Locke: All I did, all I have ever done, has been in the best interests of all of us.
Jack: Are you insane!?
Locke: I know I have a lot of explaining to do. But I never did anything to hurt any of you. I even risked my life to tell you there was a traitor in your midst.[Points at Juliet]
Jack: She helped us, John. All you ever did was blow up every chance we've had of getting off of this Island! You killed Naomi.
Ben: Well, technically, he didn't kill her. Yet.
Kate:[Just arriving] Yes he did. She just died. She didn't give you up, John. She covered for us, and she fixed this.[Hands Jack the phone] They're on their way.
Locke: She didn't cover for anyone. She wants her people to come here. And trust me, when they do we had all better be far away from here. I'm going to the Barracks. The Others abandoned them. It's the only place on the Island with any form of security, so it'll have to do until I can think of something else. Until then, if you wanna live, you need to come with me.
Jack: No one's going anywhere with you, John. Because they're not crazy.
Hurley:[teary eyed] He's not crazy! What about Charlie? Charlie went down to that place so we could all be rescued. And whatever he did down there, it worked. But then something must have happened. He must have heard something before he...[Becomes overwhelemed with emotion] I don't know why, but he changed his mind. Because the last thing he did was warn us that the people on that boat are not who they said they were. So I'm not listening to you! I'm listening to my friend. I'm listening to Charlie.

Kate: What are you doing?
Sawyer: Same thing I've always done Kate: surviving.

Jack: Do you ever miss?
Hurley: Jack.
Jack: Yeah, I was on my way back from a consult. Thought I'd drop by and pay you a visit. Horse?
Hurley: You're on. So consult huh? Does that mean you're back doing surgical stuff? (Jack starts playing basketball with Hurley)
Jack: Yeah. (Hurley shoots and scores. Jack shoots and misses) H
Hurley: Reporters leaving you alone? (Hurley shoots and scores)
Jack: Yeah. Still have to sign some autographs when I go out for coffee. Thinking about growing a beard. (He shoots and misses again)
Hurley: You'd look weird with a beard, dude. That's H O. So, what are you really doing here, Jack?
Jack: I was just checking on ya, seeing if everything was ok.
Hurley: Checking to see if I was nuts, if I was gonna tell.
Jack: Are you?
Hurley: You're up.
Jack: Nah, you win. I, er, I gotta run. It was great seeing you Hurley. (Jack starts to leave)
Hurley: I'm sorry. I'm sorry I went with Locke. I should have stayed with you.
Jack: Its water under the bridge, man.
Hurley: I don't think we did the right thing, Jack. I think it wants us to come back.
Jack: Hurley.
Hurley: And its going to do everything it can...
Jack: (Shouts) We're never going back!(Jack heads for the door)
Hurley: Never say never, dude.

Daniel Faraday: Are you Jack?

Confirmed Dead [4.02][edit]

Locke: Let's go.
Sawyer: Why are you going East? Thought you said the Barracks were due South.
Locke: Because, James, we have to make a little detour first.
Sawyer: Detour to what?
Locke: There's a cabin I have to go to.
Hurley: I think the cabin was back that way.
Locke: What did you say Hugo?
Hurley: I never, thought you were talking about the airplane cabin.
(Locke stares at Hurley. So does Ben)
Sawyer: Why are we wasting our time going to some shack anyway?
Locke: Because we're supposed to.
Sawyer: Right. Like you were supposed to throw a knife into that Naomi chick's back.
Locke: Ahuh.
Sawyer: You mind telling us who you're getting your orders from, Colonel Kurtz?
Locke: I got em from Walt.

Sawyer: What the hell do you mean you saw Walt? In a dream?
Locke: No dream, it was Walt. Only, taller.
Sawyer: Taller? What like a giant? OK, what exactly did Walt tell you?
Locke: He said I had work to do. That I had to stop this woman, Naomi, from bringing the rest of her people here.
Sawyer: What you didn't ask any follow-up questions?
Locke: Ben had shot me and left me for dead, Walt saved my life, so I pretty much took him at his word.
Sawyer: He shot you? Yet here you are fit as a fiddle tromping through the jungle.
(Locke shows Sawyer his wound)
Locke: The bullet went in one side, came out the other. I'd probably be dead if I still had a kidney there. Anything else?

Jack: You need to put the guns down.
Miles: What?
Jack: Put the guns down.
Miles: Now why would I do that?
Jack: Because our friends are out in the jungle right holding a gun at your head and his head, so I'm gonna forget about the misunderstanding, just put the guns down!
Miles: Come on, how stupid do you think I-
[Several shots ring out, and Juliet and Sayid come out the bushes with guns aimed at Miles and Daniel. Kate grabs Daniel's gun and aims it at him, but Miles continues to hold his]
Jack: I don't know, Miles. How stupid are you?

[Locke is about to execute Ben]
Ben: John, listen. I have information that you need. I have answers.
Locke: What is the monster?
Ben: What?
Locke: The black smoke, the monster! What is it?
Ben: I don't know.
[Locke loads his gun]
Locke: Goodbye, Benjamin.
Ben: Her name is Charlotte Lewis! [Charlotte looks shocked] Charlotte Staples Lewis. Born July 2, 1979, Essex, England. Parents David and Jeanette. Eldest of three, all girls. She was raised in Bromsgrove. Did her undergraduate studies at Kent. Took her PhD in cultural anthropology at Oxford. She's here with two other team members and a pilot. Their names are Daniel Faraday, Miles Straume, Frank Lapidus. [Charlotte continues to look shocked] Your instinct was right, John. These people are a threat.

The Economist [4.03][edit]

Sawyer: (to Ben): You ready to give us the name, Gizmo?
Locke: He's not going to tell you who his spy is on their boat, James.
Sawyer: Yeah, why not?
Locke: Because that's the only thing keeping him alive.
Sawyer: Well here's an idea: why don't we take a gun, point it to his big toe and send that little piggy to the market.[Ben looks slightly amused.]
Sawyer: (continues) And if he still doesn't want to tell us, move on to the roast beef. Why don't we do that?
Locke: Because then we'd have to carry him.

Kate: Kinda sucks, huh?
Jack: What's that?
Kate: Being told not to come along. (Jack chuckles) Now you know what it feels like to be me.
Jack: Does that mean I should wait twenty minutes and go anyway? (Both laugh.)
Kate: (smiling) Touché.

Sayid: Naomi, were you close to her?
Miles: Nope. Met her on the boat.
Sayid: You don't seem particularly affected by her death.
Miles: Sure I'm affected. She was hot and I dug her accent.
Kate: Nice.
Sayid: And this woman, Charlotte. You don't really care about her, do you?
Miles: Define care.
Sayid: So much for camaraderie.
Miles: Yeah, gee, who's the one going after one of their crash buddies with guns? Actually, I do care about Locke. Maybe you can tell me how he managed to split your happy little family in half.
Sayid: (glances at Kate) There was a fundamental debate as to whether your people were coming to rescue us... or kill us.
Miles: And which side did you land on?
Sayid: I let you know when I decide.

Eggtown [4.04][edit]

The Constant [4.05][edit]

Daniel Faraday: I think Eloise's brain short-circuited. The jumps between the present and the future eventually, she eventually, she couldn't tell which was which. She had no anchor.
Desmond: What do you mean, "anchor"?
Daniel Faraday: Something familiar in both times. All this, see all this is all variables. It's random; it's chaotic. Every equation needs stability, something known. It's called a "constant." Desmond, you have no constant. When you go to the future nothing there is familiar. So if you want to stop this, then you need to find something there, something that you really, really care about, something that also exists back here in 1996.
Desmond: This constant, can it be a person?
Daniel Faraday: Yeah, maybe. But you have to make contact. Didn't you say you were out on a boat in the middle of nowhere? [Desmond picks up a phone and begins dialing] Uh, who are you calling?
Desmond: Calling my bloody constant.

[on the phone]
Desmond: I love you, Penny. I've always loved you. I'm so sorry. I love you.
Penelope: I love you too.
Desmond: I don't know where I am but,
Penelope: I'll find you, Des,
Desmond: I promise,
Penelope: no matter what-
Desmond: I'll come back to you.
Penelope: I won't give up.
Desmond: I promise.
Penelope: I promise.
Desmond, Penelope: I love you.

The Other Woman [4.06][edit]

Jack: You people had therapists?
Juliet: It's very stressful being an Other, Jack.

Juliet: You knew this would happen. You sent him out here because you knew this would happen. You wanted this! You wanted him to die! Why?
Ben: Why? You're asking me why? After everything I did to get you here, after everything I've done to keep you here - how can you possibly not understand...that you're mine!

Jack: Hey. Are you all right? [He touches Juliets face]
Juliet: He wanted me to kill them. Ben. He sent Harper to tell me to kill them.
Jack: How could he possibly tell you that?
Juliet: I don't know! But he knew how to get to me. Don't you see? These people came here to wage war against Ben. And Ben's going to win. And when he does you don't want to be anywere near me.
Jack: [Quietly]: Why not?
Juliet: [Pause]: Because he thinks that I'm his. And he knows how I feel about you.
[Jack walks up to Juliet, and kisses her]
Jack: He knows where to find me.

Ben: See you at dinner.

Ji Yeon [4.07][edit]

Meet Kevin Johnson [4.08][edit]

The Shape of Things to Come [4.09][edit]

Hurley: We're all gonna die.
Sawyer: Calm down, Chicken Little. Sky ain't falling just yet.
Hurley: This is exactly what he wants. To fight amongst ourselves. You're making a big mistake, dude.
Locke: It's his to make, Hugo. Let's get on with it.
Sawyer: Right. [pauses] I'm attacking Siberia. [The camera zooms out revealing that they are playing Risk. Sawyer and Hurley roll the dice, and Sawyer wins.] Sorry.
Hurley: Can't believe you're just giving him Australia. Australia's the key to the whole game.
Sawyer: Says you.

Martin Keamy: Mr. Linus, these are my terms. You're gonna step out the front door, put your hands above your head, and you're gonna walk straight to me. Once I have you in my custody, I promise that no one else in that house will be harmed.
Ben: You and I both know that once you have me there's nothing to stop you from killing everybody else on this island.
Martin Keamy: What kind of guy do you think I am?
Ben: Martin Christopher Keamy, former First Sergeant, United States Marine Corps. Served with distinction from 1996 to 2001, but since then you've worked with a number of mercenary organizations, specifically in Uganda. So I know exactly what kind of man you are, Mr. Keamy, and we can dispense with the formalities.

[Ben tries to dissuade Keamy from killing Alex]
Ben: She's not my daughter. I stole her as a baby from an insane woman. She's a pawn, nothing more. She means nothing to me. (pauses) I'm not coming out of his house. So if you want to kill her, go ahead and...
[Keamy shoots Alex]

[Just after Alex was killed while Ben watched]
Ben: He changed the rules.

[The survivors watch as the monster, which is much bigger than ever before and with lightning going though it, attacks the mercenaries at the tree line]
Locke: [to Ben] What did you do?!
Hurley: You just called that thing?!

Jack: Are you ever gonna take us off this island?
Daniel Faraday: No.

[Ben has just broken into Charles Widmore's penthouse]
Charles Widmore: Why are you here?
Ben: I'm here, Charles, because you murdered my daughter.
Charles Widmore: Don't stand there looking at me with those horrible eyes of yours, and lay the blame for the death of that poor girl on me, when we both know very well I didn't murder her at all, Benjamin. You did.
Ben: No, that's not true.
Charles Widmore: Yes, Benjamin, it is. You creep into my bedroom in the dead of night, like a rat, and have the audacity to pretend that you're the victim? I know who you are, boy, what you are. I know that everything you have you took from me. [pauses] So. Once again I ask you, why are you here?
Ben: I'm here, Charles, to tell you that I'm going to kill your daughter. Penelope, is it? And once she's gone, once she's dead, then you'll understand how I feel, and you'll wish you hadn't changed the rules.
Charles Widmore: You'll never find her. [Ben turns around and begins to walk away] That island's mine, Benjamin. It always was. It will be again.
Ben: [Turns around] But you'll never find it.
Charles Widmore: Then I suppose the hunt is on for both of us.
Ben: I suppose it is. Sleep tight, Charles.

Something Nice Back Home [4.10][edit]

Jack: [Reading to Aaron] "Alice took up the fan, and as the hall was very hot she kept fanning herself all the time she went on talking, dear, dear. How queer everything is today. And yesterday,things went on just as usual. I wonder if I've been changed in the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? But if I'm not the same, the next question is, 'who in the world am I?' Aha, that's the great puzzle."

Kate: You're a natural.
Jack: Yeah?
Kate: Yeah.
Jack: My old man used to read me that story.
Kate: Really?
Jack: What?
Kate: It's just... it's just sweet hearing you say nice things about your dad.
Jack: I don't say nice things about my dad? Well, he was a good storyteller. I'll give him that.
[He comes closer]
Jack: You okay?
Kate: Just,I...I love seeing you with him. I'm so glad you changed your mind. I'm so glad that you're here.
Jack: Me too.
[They kiss and Jack carries Kate to the bedroom]

Jack: Hey, Hurley.
Hurley: Hey, Jack.
Jack: Why aren't you taking your meds?
Hurley: 'Cause we're dead... all of us. All the oceanic six. We're all dead. We never got off that island.
Jack: Hurley... that is not true.
Hurley: What'd you do today?
Jack: What did I do today? I,uh... [Sighs] I woke up, took a shower. Uh, Kate and I fed the baby.
Hurley: I thought you didn't want anything to do with Aaron.
Jack: I changed my mind after the trial.
Hurley: Living with Kate... taking care of Aaron... it all seems so perfect... just like heaven.
Jack: Just because I'm happy doesn't mean that this isn't real, Hurley.
Hurley: I was happy, too, Jack... for a while, anyway. Then I saw Charlie. He likes to sit with me on the bench out on the front lawn. It's pretty cool, actually.
Jack: Okay. [Sighs] so what do the two of you talk about?
Hurley: Well, yesterday, he told me you were gonna be coming by. He wanted me to give you a message.
Jack: A message?
Hurley: [Opens the drawer] He made me write it down so I wouldn't mess it up. "You're not supposed to raise him, Jack" Does that make any sense?
Jack: No, that...doesn't make any sense.
Hurley: Do you think he means Aaron?
Jack: Take your meds, Hurley. Just take them.
Hurley: Hey, Jack? Charlie said someone's gonna be visiting you, too. Soon.

Jack: Kate? Kate? Wake up, Kate.
Kate: What time is it?
Jack: It's late. I just got home.
Kate: Were you working?
Jack: No. I... I just...had to stop and get something. It just took a while.
Kate: What's going on? What's wrong?
Jack: The other night, when I was reading to Aaron, you said... that I was a natural. [Sighs] Do you really... do you really think that I'm good at this?
Kate: Yeah! You're good at this.
Jack: [pauses] Will you marry me?
Kate: [crying] Yes.
[Jack pulls out a small box and shows the ring]
Kate: Of course I will, Yes!
[She wears it on her finger and they tearfully embrace]

Jin: Charlotte.
Charlotte: Yeah?
Jin: I know you understand me.
Charlotte: Pardon?
Jin: I know you speak Korean. You smiled when Sun and I talked about you and you were listening to us at the station.
Charlotte: I'm sorry. Perhaps I can get your wife to translate...
Jin: You know, if you continue to lie, I'm going to hurt your friend Daniel, I'm going to break his fingers one at a time, do you understand that?
Charlotte: [In Korean] What do you want?
Jin: When you helicopter comes for you, you're going to take my wife off this island.
Charlotte: What about you and the rest of your friends?
Jin: Just get her on the helicopter.

Kate: [On the phone]: Yeah, I'll just have the nanny stay for an extra couple hours. Jack's never home before 8:00. I could stay for at least an hour.
[Kate sees Jack watching her]
Kate: I-I gotta go. Jack's home. Yeah, okay. I'll call you later. Bye.
[Kate hangs up]
Kate: You scared me.
Jack: [Smiles] Sorry. I thought you'd be in bed [Brief pause] Who was that?
Kate: That was Noreen.
Jack: Noreen..
Kate: She's one of the moms from the park [Smiles] What?
Jack: [Smiles] Nothing. I just...never heard you mention her before.
Kate: Well, now you have [She kisses him] I'll see you upstairs.

Bernard: It went well. She did good. She said you could go back inside if you want to.
Kate: Thank you
Bernard: Okay.
[Kate enters the tent]
Juliet: He didn't lose that much blood. I got the appendix out and put everything back where it belongs, I think.
Kate: Yeah. So, he's gonna be okay?
Juliet: He should be fine. We just have to talk him into resting.
Kate: Good luck with that!
Juliet: I'm sorry I yelled at you.
Kate: Don't worry about it. You had enough going on.
Juliet: You know, he kissed me.
Kate: What?
Juliet: The other day, when you came back from the other side of the island, Jack kissed me.
Kate: Oh...
Juliet: It was nice. But it wasn't for me. But it was for him. I'm pretty sure he was trying to prove something.
Kate: Prove what?
Juliet: That he doesn't love some else.
Kate: Thank you, Juliet. Thank you for saving his life.
[Kate goes out of the tent]
Juliet: I know you're awake.
[Jack opens his eyes]

[Kate arrives at home]
Kate: Hey you're home early. Where's Veronica?
Jack: I sent her home. The baby's sleep.
Kate: Good.
[Ice cubes rattle]
Jack: Why was she here?
Kate: Sorry?
Jack: The nanny. She only works till 4:00. I came home 6:00.
Kate: I had to run some errands so... [Sets keys down] I asked her to stay a couple extra hours [Pauses] What's going on, Jack? Why are you home so early?
Jack: I went to see Hurley.
Kate: Today?
Jack: Last Friday.
Kate: Why didn't you tell me? I would've gone with you.
[Jack laughs]
Jack: Because he's crazy, Kate and I didn't wanna upset you. [Pauses] Where were you today?
[Kate kneels in front of him]
Kate: I'm gonna ask you... to trust me. Trust me and just leave it be.
Jack: Where were you?
Kate: Jack, don't.
Jack: No, I heard you on the phone last night. Who were you talking to?
Kate: Just let it go.
Jack: No, no, I wanna know!
Kate: No, Jack.
Jack: I wanna know where you were. I wanna know who you were with.
Kate: It doesn't matter, Jack. Please.
Jack: No, TELL ME!
[Kate starts to cry]
Kate: I was doing something for him.
Jack: For who?
Kate: For Sawyer. I made him a promise...
Jack: What?
Kate: It doesn't matter. It has nothing to do with us!
Jack: Then why won't you tell me?
Kate: Because, because he wouldn't want me to.
Jack: But he's not here, is he? No, no, he made his choice. He chose to stay.
Jack: I'm the one who came back. I'm the one who's here. I'm the one who saved you.
Kate: Jack--You can't, you can't do this. If you have problems, you need to figure them out. All right? 'Cause I can't have you like this around my son.
Jack: Your son? You're not even related to him!
[Aaron is seen walking down the hall nearby]
Kate: [Gasps] Hey, sweet pea.

Cabin Fever [4.11][edit]

Locke: You ever wonder what happened to the Dharma Initiative, Hugo? There must have been at least a hundred of 'em living on this island. Manning the stations, building those homes, making all that ranch dressing that you like. And then, one day, they're all gone, they just disappear. You wanna know where we're going? [Walks over to the pit that contains the bodies of the Dharma Initiative] We're going to see them.
Hurley: What happened to them?
Locke: [Jerks his head at Ben] He did.

[Locke, Ben, and Hurley are looking for Jacob's cabin]
Locke: It should be about two hundred yards this way.
Ben: You sure it's gonna be there, John?
Locke: I'm sorry?
Ben: The cabin. What if its moved, again?
Locke: It hasn't moved, because I was told this is where it would be.
Ben: I was told a lot of things too. That I was chosen, that I was special. I end up with a tumor on my spine and my daughter's blood all over my hands.
Locke: I'm sorry those things happened to you, Ben.
Ben: Those things had to happen to me. That was my destiny. But you'll understand soon enough that there are consequences to being chosen. Because destiny, John, is a fickle bitch.

There's No Place Like Home, Part 1 [4.12][edit]

[Jack, Kate, Sun, Hurley, Sayid, and Aaron are about to arrive in Honolulu and be questioned by the press]
Jack: If we get any questions we don't wanna answer, or that we can't answer, let's just keep our mouths shut. [Everyone stares at him without saying anything] It's okay, they'll think that we're in shock.
Sun: We are in shock, Jack.
Jack: Well, then this should be easy.

[Sayid has just arrived back at the beach in the Zodiac]
Juliet: Sayid, where's Desmond?
Sayid: He's fine, he's on the freighter. Listen, I'm going to start taking people back, six at a time. We have to go right now, before the helicopter gets back to the boat.
Juliet: Why do we have to go to the boat before the chopper gets back?
Sayid: Because the men on that helicopter have every intention of killing us all. [Juliet looks scared] What?
Juliet: Jack and Kate just went running after it.

[Locke, Ben and Hurley are looking at the armed men in the Orchid Station]
Locke: I'm sorry Ben, but maybe I've missed the part where you explain what I'm supposed to do with the armed men inside.
Ben: I'm gonna take care of 'em.
Locke: And how the hell are you gonna do that?
Ben: How many time I have to tell you, John? I always have a plan.

[Hurley opens the box Ben hands to him and finds saltine crackers inside. He eats one.]
Ben: You know those are 15 years old?

There's No Place Like Home, Part 2 [4.13] and [4.14][edit]

Jack: We have to go back! WE HAVE TO GO BACK!
Kate: "We have to go back"? "We have to go back"?
Jack: Now hold on--
Kate: Who do you think you are?! You call me over and over again for two days straight, stoned on your pills! And then you show up here with an obituary for Jeremy Bentham. [Sighs] When he came to me and I heard what he had to say, I knew he was crazy. But you... you believed him.
Jack: Yes.
Kate: Him, of all people.
Jack: Yes, Kate, I did, because he said that that was the only way that I could keep you safe--you and Aaron. [Kate slaps Jack]
Kate: Don't you say his name. I still have to explain to him why you are not there to read to him, so don't you say his name!
Jack: I'm sorry.
Kate: I've spent the last three years trying to forget all the horrible things that happened on the day that we left. How dare you ask me to go back?

Jack: What did you want to talk to me about, John?
Locke: I want you to reconsider leaving the island, Jack. I would like you to stay.
Jack: You’d like me to stay.
Locke: Yeah. That’s right.
Jack: You threw a knife into the back of an unarmed woman, you led half of our people across the island and got most of them killed.
Locke: Well Jack, you put a gun to my head and pulled the trigger. I was hoping we could let bygones be bygones.

Locke: Jack, you're not supposed to go home.
Jack: And what am I supposed to do?! Oh, I think I remember- what was it that you said on the way out to the hatch? That crashing here was our destiny.
Locke: You know, Jack, you know that you’re here for a reason! You know it. And if you leave this place, that knowledge is gonna eat you alive from the inside out… until you decide to come back.
Jack: Goodbye John.
Locke: You’re gonna have to lie.
Jack: Excuse me?
Locke: If you have to go, then you have to lie about everything, everything that happened since we got to the island. It’s the only way to protect it.
Jack: It’s an island, John. No one needs to protect it.
Locke: It’s not an island. It’s a place where miracles happen. And- and if you don’t believe that Jack, if you can’t believe that, just wait 'til you see what I’m about to do.
Jack: There’s no such thing as miracles.
Locke: Well... we’ll just have to see which one of us is right.

Locke: Jacob told me what we had to do. You don't get to make all the decisions--
Ben: He told you what to do, but he didn't tell you how because he wants me to suffer the consequences.
Locke: What consequences?
Ben: Whoever moves the island can never come back. So I'd like you to get on the elevator, John, and go back up. Richard and my people will be waiting 2 miles east of the Orchid.
Locke: Waiting for me?
Ben: Ready, willing and able to share what they know. And then they will follow your every word. Good-bye, John. I'm sorry I made your life so miserable. [Ben shakes Locke's hand for the last time and leaves]
Locke: What do I tell 'em to do?
Ben: You'll find your way, John. You always do.

Ben: Hello, Jack. [Ben startles Jack from behind him in the funeral home, while looking a "Jeremy Bentham's" body] Sorry. Didn't mean to scare you. Did he tell you that I was off the island?
Jack: Yes, he did.
Ben: When did you speak to him?
Jack: About a month ago.
Ben: And Kate?
Jack: Yeah. Yeah, he came to see her, too.
Ben: And what did he say to you?
Jack: He told me... that after I left the island, some very bad things happened. And he told me that it was my fault for leaving. And he said that I had to come back.
Ben: Yes, I heard that you've been flying on passenger planes... hoping that you'd crash. That's dark, Jack, very dark.
Jack: Why are you here?
Ben: I'm here to tell you that the island won't let you come alone. All of you have to go back.
Jack: Are you... Sayid--I don't even know where Sayid is. Hurley... is insane. Sun blames me for... and then Kate... she won't even talk to me anymore.
Ben: Perhaps I can help you with that. This is the way it has to be, Jack. It's the only way. You have to do it together, all of you.
Jack: How?
Ben: I have a few ideas. [Jack turns to leave] Jack... I said, all of you. We're gonna have to bring him, too.
[Both Jack and Ben look back down at the body, who is revealed to be John Locke]

Season Five[edit]

Because You Left [5.01][edit]

Dharma Worker: There's an open chamber about twenty meters in behind the rock. There's something in there. And the only way to get it is to lay charges here and here, blast through it-
Pierre Chang (From Orientation videos): Under no circumstances. This station is being built here because it's proximity to what we believe to be an almost limitless energy and that energy, once we can harness it correctly, it's going to allow us to manipulate time.
Worker: Right... Okay, so what? We're gonna go back and kill Hitler?
Pierre Chang: Don't be absurd. There are rules. Rules that can't be broken.
Worker: So what do you want me to do?
Pierre Chang: You're gonna do nothing. If you drill even one centimeter further, you risk releasing that energy. If that would've happened... God help us all.

(Jack stares at Locke's body, Ben comes up with a stretcher)
Ben: Why don't you close that up now Jack? Come on, let's get him in the van, it's out back.
Jack: Where are we taking him?
Ben: We'll worry about that once we pick up Hugo.
Jack: Hurley - is locked away in a mental institution.
Ben: Which should make recruiting him considerably easier than the rest of your friends.
Jack: They're not my friends anymore.
Ben: Well that's the spirit...
Jack: How did we get here...? How did all of this happened?
Ben: It happened because you left, Jack... Now let's get started shall we?
(Ben closes Jeremy Bentham's coffin)

Sawyer: First things first. Give me your shirt.
Daniel: My shirt?
Sawyer: Yeah.
Daniel: I really think we have far more pressing matters then me giving you a shirt. How about we just keep moving, okay?
Sawyer: How about we call a time out so you can tell us what the hell's going on?
Daniel: How about you trust me?
Sawyer: Trust you? I don't even know you!
Daniel: We really do not have time for me to try to explain. You have no idea how difficult that would be for me to try to explain this-this phenomenon to a quantum physicist. That would be difficult. So for me to try to explain whatevers happened-
[Sawyer slaps Daniel]
Charlotte: Oy! What the bloody hell do you think you're doing?
Sawyer: Shut it, ginger, or you're getting one too. Now talk.
Daniel: This island... Think of the island like a record spinning on a turntable. Only now, that record is skipping. Whatever Ben Linus did down at the Orchard station... I think it may have... dislodged us.
Miles: Dislodged us from what?
Daniel: ... Time.

Hurley: So when'd you become so paranoid?
Sayid: If you'd spent the last two years doing the things I was doing, you'd be paranoid, too.
Hurley: Oh, yeah? Paranoid like what? What kind of things?
Sayid: I was working for Benjamin Linus.
Hurley: Wait. He's on our side now?
Sayid: Listen to me, Hurley. If you ever have the misfortune of running into him, whatever he tells you, just do the opposite.

[At drive through]
Hurley: Wanna fry?
Sayid: No, thank you.
Hurley: You know maybe if you ate more comfort food, you wouldn't have to go around shooting people.

Hurley: So that dude you pocked outside Santa Rosa, who was he?
Sayid: I don't care. He was armed and he was watching you. That made him an enemy.
Hurley: You think he was going to kill me?
Sayid: I'm not taking risks after Bentham died.
Hurley: You mean Locke?
Sayid: Yeah, I mean Locke.
Hurley: I need a cool code name.

Charlotte: Hey, you think he's looking for us?
Miles: Who?
Charlotte: Widmore
Miles: It took him, like, 20 years to find this place the first time. I'll start holding my breath now.

Dan (staring at the hatch crater): Is this the hatch?
Sawyer: It was. Blown up, just like we left it.
Dan: Okay. So when we are now... It's now after you and your people crashed on the island.
Sawyer: You sayin' our camp is back on the beach again?
Dan: It's possible, yeah.
Sawyer: Good. I'm going back.
Dan: Hey. No, no. (stoping him) It's pointless.
Sawyer: More pointless than staring at a hole in the ground?
Dan: We don't know when the next flash is coming. By the time you get back to the beach, the camp could be gone again.
Sawyer: Yeah. But what if it ain't? Hell, what if the helicopter hasn't even taken off yet?
Juliet: We could warn them. Stop them from ever flying to that boat.
Dan: That is not the way it works.
Sawyer: Who says?
Dan: You cannot change anything. You can't. Even if you tried to, it wouldn't work.
Sawyer: Why not?
Dan: Time it's like a street, all right? We can move forward on that street, we can move in reverse, but we cannot ever create a new street. If we try to do anything different, we will fail every time. Whatever happened, happened.

Richard: Next time we see each other, I'm not gonna recognize you, all right? You give me this.
(He gives Locke a compass)
Locke: What is this?
Richard: It's a compass.
Locke: What does it do?
Richard: It points north, John. Look, I wish I had time to be more sensitive about this because it's a lot to swallow, but you need to know it in order to do what you gotta do. So I'm just gonna say it, okay? The only way to save the island, John, is to get your people back here. The ones who left.
Locke: Jack, Kate? But the chopper was headed for the boat. The boat...
Richard: No, they're fine, John, and they're already home, so you have to convince them to come back.
Locke: How... How am I supposed to do that?
Richard: You're gonna have to die, John.
(The sky flashes again and Richard disappears)

Dan (knocking at the hatch back door): Please, please, please. Let this work.
(The door opens, Desmond comes out and aims at Dan with a rifle)
Dan: Don't shoot.
Desmond: Then you'd best explain why you've been bangin' on my door for the last 20 minutes, brother.
Dan: Desmond.
Desmond (slowly lowering the rifle): Are you him?
Dan: "Him"? Who?
Desmond: My replacment.
Dan: No, I'm not. (Desmond points the rifle at him again) I'm not. I'm not. I'm...
Desmond: Do I know you?
Dan: Yeah... in a way. But listen, that's not important. What is important, Desmond, is what I'm about to say to you. I need you to listen. You're the only person who can help us because, Desmond... The rules... The rules don't apply to you. You're special. You're uniquely and miraculously special.
Desmond: What are you talking about?
(The sky begins to hum)
Dan: Okay, listen to me. Listen! If the helicopter somehow made it off the island, if you got home...
Desmond: What helicopter? What are you talking about?!
Dan: Listen, I need you to listen, or people are gonna die. My name is Daniel Faraday, and right now me and everyone else you left behind. We're in serious danger. You're the only person who can help us. I need you to go back to Oxford University. Go back to where we met. I need you to go there and find my mother. Her name is...
(The sky flashes and Desmond wakes up in his bed)

[As sky lights up for third time shift]
Sawyer: Son of a-
[Time shifts, shows it's daylight]
Sawyer: Bitch...

The Lie [5.02][edit]

Hurley: Dude they'll find out.
Jack: Not if we stick to the story.
Sayid: I don't know, Jack. It could be a risk.
Jack: It's the only way. We have to do this.
Lapidus: You're still at it, huh?
Jack: Look, we're running out of time. We've got to make a decision now. So are we all okay with this?
Sayid: This is a decision that will affect the rest of our lives. I'm not taking it lightly.
Jack: Kate?
Kate: Yeah.
Jack: Sun?
[Sun nods]
Jack: Frank?
Lapidus: What?
Jack: Sorry you got dragged into this, but we need to know that you're with us.
Lapidus: Whatever you guys decide, I'll just roll with.
Jack: Hurley, what about you?
Hurley: I don't think we should lie dude.
Jack: We need to protect the people that we left behind, Hurley.
Hurley: How does lying protect them?
Jack: It protects them from Charles Widmore. The guy hired a boatload of people to kill all of us. He faked the plane crash, and you think telling him the truth he's just gonna.. he's gonna leave them alone?
Hurley: [To Penny] Look he's your dad right? Can't you just like.. call him off?
Penny: There's no calling my father off.
Hurley: But, he'll never find 'em. I mean the Island disappeared, we all saw it, it's gone... BLUP!
Jack: You thing anyone's gonna believe that? Believe any of it? They're gonna think you're crazy.
Hurley: Unless someone backs me up.
[He looks at Sayid]
Hurley: Sayid, come on. They'll think I'm nuts if I tell the truth but what if we all do? I mean if we can stick together, we can make 'em believe us. I don't wanna spend the rest of my life lying, do you?!
Sayid: No, but I don't believe we have a better choice... I'm sorry Hurley but we have to lie.
Hurley: You know what dude? I'm gonna remember this. And some day you're gonna need my help and I'm telling you right now... You're not getting it.

[After being pulled over]
Hurley: Okay, okay, okay. Just stay calm.
[Cop knocks on window, Hurley rolls it down]
Cop: What the hell where you thinking?
Hurley:... Ana Lucia?
Ana Lucia: You were driving like a maniac. And why'd you pull over?
Hurley: I just... I thought...
Ana Lucia: You didn't think. What if I were real? What if a real cop stopped you? They already have pictures of you covered in blood with a gun in your hand.
Hurley: Actually, it's ketchup. We, uh, went to a drive-through and uh...
Ana Lucia: Bro, you need to pull it together. You've got a lot of work to do.
Hurley: I do?
Ana Lucia: Let's start with the basics. First off, you need new clothes. Then, you need to go to a safe place and take Sayid to somebody you trust. You getting all this?
Hurley: Yeah.
Ana Lucia: Then get to it. And stay away from the cops. Do not get arrested.
Hurley: Thanks, Ana Lucia.
Ana Lucia: Oh, yeah... Libby says hi.

Hurley: Okay. See, we did crash, but it was on this crazy island. And we waited for rescue, and there wasn't any rescue. And there was a smoke monster, and then there were other people on the island. We called them the Others, and they started attacking us. And we found some hatches, and there was a button you had to push every 108 minutes or... well, I was never really clear on that. But... the Others didn't have anything to do with the hatches. That was the DHARMA Initiative. The Others killed them, and now they're trying to kill us. And then we teamed up with the Others because some worse people were coming on a freighter. Desmond's girlfriend's father sent them to kill us. So we stole their helicopter and we flew it to their freighter, but it blew up. And we couldn't go back to the island because it disappeared, so then we crashed into the ocean, and we floated there for a while until a boat came and picked us up. And by then, there were six of us. That part was true. But the rest of the people... who were on the plane? They're still on that island.

Ben: Hello, Hugo.
Hurley: Ahh! [Throws Hot Pocket at him, misses and it hits wall] Get away from me. Get away!
Ben: Hugo, I know you're in trouble. And I can assure you, I've taken care of everything. I have a car waiting for us out back. The police didn't see me come in. I can get you out of here.
Hurley: No way, dude. Sayid warned me about you.
Ben: I'm taking you to Sayid. He's with Jack. That's why I'm here, Hugo. Jack called me. How else would I know that they're together?
Hurley: No. You're playing one of your mind games. They'd never trust you.
Ben: In their defense, I'm not an easy person to trust. But they came around when they realized that we all want the same thing.
Hurley: And what's that?
Ben: To go back to the island. Come with us, Hugo. And this'll be over. You can stop hiding. You can stop worrying about the stories and the deceptions. If you come with me, you won't ever have to lie again. Please... Let me help you.
Hurley: Never, dude.
[Hurley turns and runs]

Young Widmore: I want you to tell me everything or I'll cut off her other hand.
Juliet: What?!
Sawyer: Other?
Young Widmore: The first one isn't negotiable. It's just to illustrate how serious I am.

Carmen Reyes: Why is there a dead Pakistani on my couch?

Jughead [5.03][edit]

Richard: How do I know you weren’t sent here on some suicide mission? I’ll take you out to the bomb, and you’ll just detonate it.
Dan: [pause] Because I'm in love with the woman sitting next to me. [Charlotte looks up in shock] And I would never...I would never do anything to hurt her.

Sawyer: How'd you learn to speak Latin?
Juliet: Others 101. It's the language of the enlightened.
Sawyer: Enlightened, my ass.

[Dan and Charlotte are sitting at a table]
Charlotte: You didn't have to say that.
Dan: Say what?
Charlotte: [smiles] That you loved me. And I'm pretty sure that there are other ways you could have convinced him you weren't going to blow up the entire island.
Dan: I said what I said because I meant it, Charlotte.

Sawyer: Hate to break this up, but Heidi's taking the geek on a death march in the jungle.

The Little Prince [5.04][edit]

[Locke, Charlotte, Dan, Miles, Juliet, and Sawyer are in a longboat headed to the Orchid Station, being attacked by an unknown assailant. The sky lights up for a time shift]
Sawyer: Thank you, Lord!
[Time shift puts them in the middle of a thunderstorm]
Sawyer: I take that back!

Sawyer: I saw Kate.
Juliet: What?
Sawyer: Last night, in the jungle. Before the last flash. She was delivering Claire's baby.
Juliet: But that was two months ago.
Sawyer: Time travel's a bitch.

This Place Is Death [5.05][edit]

[Locke, Sawyer, Juliet, Miles and Jin finally reached "The Orchid"]
Locke: We're here.
Juliet: Thank God. What are the odds that we would end up in the same time as this thing?
[Time shifts and "The Orchid" disappears]
Sawyer: You just had to say somethin'.

[Locke, Sawyer, Juliet, Miles and Jin finally find the well Charlotte talked about]
Sawyer: You're going down there?
Locke: Aha...
Sawyer: What exactly are you hoping to find?
Locke: A way off the Island.
Sawyer: Expecting a subway!?
Locke: [Smiling] Goodbye, James.

Jin: Please, translate!
Sawyer: You heard the man, translate!
Miles: Dude, he's Korean. I'm from Encino.

Charlotte: I've been here before.
Dan: You've been...you've been here before?
Charlotte: I grew up here. On the island. There was this thing, this DHARMA Initiative, and then I moved away with my mum. Just my mum, and I never saw my dad again. Then when I got back to England, I would ask my mum about this place, but she would say that it wasn't real, and that I'd made it up. That's why I became an anthropologist. To find this island again. It's what I've been searching for my whole life.
Dan: Charlotte, why are you telling me this?
Charlotte: Because I remember something now. When I was little, living here, there was this man, this crazy man. He really scared me. And he told me that I had to leave the island and never ever come back. He told me that if I came back to the island, I would die.
Dan: Charlotte, I don't understand.
Charlotte: Daniel! I think that man was you.

316 [5.06][edit]

[Jack looks into coach and sees other passengers]
Jack: And the other people on this plane--what's gonna happen to them?
Ben: Who cares?

[Jack and Ben, in the 316 Ajira flight]
Jack: [Nervous] How can you read?
Ben: [Keeps reading] My mother taught me. [Pretty funny smile] I can read, Jack, because it beats what you are doing.
Jack: What's that?
Ben: Waiting for something to happen.
Jack: And what is gonna happen?
Ben: You tell me, Jack, you're the one that got to stay after school with Ms. Hawking.
Jack: Did you know that Locke killed himself?
Ben: No. No, I didn't.
Jack: [Takes out the suicide note Locke left for him] They found this stuffed in his pocket... and I've been trying to get rid of it but it's like it's... following me. I know it sounds crazy but... it feels like John needs me to read it.
Ben: Why don't you then? Is it because you're afraid?
Jack: Afraid of what?
Ben: Afraid that he blames you, that it's your fault he killed himself.
Jack: Was it my fault?
Ben: No, Jack, it wasn't your fault. Let me give you some privacy.
[Ben changes his seat, and Jack reads the note: "Jack, I wish you had believed me. JL"]
[Turbulences and a flash like those from the Island start]

[Jack and Frank, who is the pilot of Ajira Flight 316]
Frank: Well. Hello, Doc. Small world. What are you doing going to Guam?
Jack: What are you doing here, Frank?
Frank: Well, I picked this gig up about eight months ago. I fly this route all the time. Sometimes I take the big birds into New [looks up and sees Sayid]...Delhi. Is that Sayid? [sees Hurley] And Hurley. [sees Kate, then Sun] Wait a second...We're not going to Guam, are we?

Jack: It's pretty crazy, huh?
Kate: Which part?
Jack: Hurley, Sayid and Ben on the same plane. How did they end up here?
Kate: They bought a ticket.
Jack: You don't think that it means something? That somehow we're all back together?
Kate: We're on the same plane, Jack. Doesn't make us together.

The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham [5.07][edit]

Charles Widmore: There is a war coming, John. And if you're not on the Island by the time it starts, the wrong side is going to win.

Locke: What makes you think that I'm so special?
Charles Widmore: Because you are.

Ilana: Nobody remembers you being on the plane
Locke: Well, I don't remember being on it either.
Ilana: What do you remember?
Locke: I remember a lot.
Ilana: Like why you're dressed up so nice?
Locke: No, but I can guess.
Ilana: Please. Guess.
Locke: I think this suit is what they were gonna bury me in.
Ilana: Sorry?
Locke: You asked what I remembered. I remember dying.

[Locke is staring at injured and unconscious Ben]
Ceasar: You know him?
Locke: Yeah. He's the man who killed me.
[The episode ends]

LaFleur [5.08][edit]

[1974 - Sawyer and Juliet step out of some foliage to find Daniel Faraday kneeling alone and crying in the jungle.]
Daniel: [muttering] Not gonna tell... I'm not gonna tell...
Sawyer: [whispering to Juliet] Where's Red?
Juliet: I dont know.
[Juliet walks over to Faraday and stoops down to talk to him. Sawyer, Miles and Jin hang back.]
Daniel: [mutters indistinctly] No. I won't do it. I won't tell her. I won't do it. Won't...
Juliet: Daniel? Are you okay?
Daniel: I'm not gonna do it. I'm not gonna tell her.
Juliet: Daniel, where's Charlotte?
Daniel: [Voice breaking] She's not here. She... She's gone.
Juliet: Where?
Daniel: She's... dead. She's dead. There was another flash, and... and she was... she was just gone.
[Juliet nods sympathetically.]
Daniel: Her... body just... [crying] disappeared. She moved on, and we stayed.
Juliet: I'm so sorry.
Sawyer: Hold on. Wait a minute. We "stayed"? We're not traveling through time anymore? You saying it's over?
Daniel: Of course it's over. Wherever we are now... whenever we are now... we're here for good. :[To Juliet, or perhaps to himself] I won't do it.
Juliet: Okay. Okay.
Daniel: I won't. I'm not gonna--I'm--I'm...
Juliet: Okay.
Daniel: I'm not gonna--I w--I won't.
Juliet: Okay. [pats Dan on head] Okay.
[Juliet stands up and goes back towards Sawyer]
Daniel: ...Tell...
Sawyer: Okay. Swell. Until Dan checks back in, I say we head back to the beach. When Locke gets back with everybody, that's where they'll be looking for us.
Miles: The beach? What, you didn't get enough flaming arrows shot at you? And your camp is gone. Why bother?
Juliet: Sawyer's right, Miles. We should go back to the beach. We survived there before. We can do it again.
Miles: [To nobody in particular] Or maybe when we get there, you'll--you'll wanna go back to the Orchid again. And then when that gets boring, we can head back to the beach. It's the only two plans you people have.

Jin: Daniel... No more flash?
Daniel: No. No more flash. The record is spinning again. We're just not on the song we wanna be on.

Sawyer: I got good news and bad news. What you want first?
Horace: Good news.
Sawyer: You're a daddy. Bad news is you missed it.
Horace: Oh, gosh. Amy... She had the baby?
Sawyer: It's a boy.
Horace: A boy?
[Sawyer shakes his head "Yes"]
Sawyer: Now how about you tell me... why you're too busy drinking and blowing up trees to see him be born?
Horace: I was, uh... I was looking for a pair of socks, and all of mine were dirty, so I went to grab a pair of Amy's, and... I found this... In the back of her drawer.
[He shows Sawyer Paul's necklace]
Horace: It was Paul's.
Sawyer: You got in a fight over a necklace?
Horace: I know. But... It's only been three years, Jim. Just three years that he's been gone. Is that really long enough to get over someone?
Sawyer: I had a thing for a girl once. And I had a shot at her, but I didn't take it. For a little while, I'd lay in bed every night, wondering if it was a mistake. Wondering if... I'd ever stop thinking about her. And now I can barely remember what she looks like. I mean, her face... it's.. She's just gone, and she ain't never coming back. So... Is three years long enough to get over someone? Absolutely.

Namaste [5.09][edit]

[Commercial airliner Ajura Airlines Flight 316 is flying through a night sky through some thick dark coloured clouds. Inside the plane; Jack, Ben, Kate, Hurley, Sayid and Sun all sit in first class waiting to be returned to the island. In the cockpit pilot Frank Lapidus is enerved by the situation after seeing Jack and all the rest of the Oceanic Six on board the plane. Sitting next to him is a co-pilot who is monitoring the planes dials]
Co-Pilot: Do you want to hear something crazy?
FRANK: Yeah. What’s that?
Co-Pilot: Did you see the big guy; who got on in L.A.? Sitting in first class, curly hair, guitar case?
Frank: What about him?
Co-Pilot: He’s one of the Oceanic 6. The guy must have nerves of steel, man. He survives a full on commercial airliner crash now he’s flying over the same South Pacific.
Frank: Yeah, well. Maybe he doesn’t believe lightning will strike twice in the same place.
[The co-pilot smiles at Frank when suddenly a severe case of turbalance strikes the plane rocking it for several seconds. Frank appears nervous. A few seconds later the turbalance subsides. The co-pilot looks over at Frank]
Co-Pilot: You all right there Frank?
Frank: I’m just fine.

[Following the crash of Flight 316, Frank leaves the cockpit and enters the first class seating area which is in pieces with seats and plane parts all over the place. Frank looks around, Jack, Kate, Hurley and Sayid are all gone. Sun gets up and she and Frank notice each other]
Frank: Sun?!
Sun: Frank.
Frank: Sun. You alright?
[Sun scans the cabin noticing the mess and that the rest of the Oceanic Six have disappeared]
Sun: Oh my God! What happened?
Frank: I don’t know.
Frank: Where’s everyone else? Jack? Kate? Hurley? Sayid? Where’d they all go?
[Ben Linus suddenly appears behind Frank]
Ben: They’re gone!
Frank: Gone? Gone where?
Ben: How would I know?

[Having been reunited with Hurley, Kate and Jack at the end of Namaste, Sawyer speaks to the trio for the first time in three years]
Hurley: [To Sawyer] You’re alive! DUDE! I can’t believe it!
[Hurley embraces Sawyer, lifting him off the ground in the process]
Sawyer: Ha, ha. Easy on the ribs there Kong.
Hurley: Kong...I actually missed that.
Sawyer: I missed you too Hugo.
[Jack moves in to shake Sawyer's hand]
Jack: Sawyer.
Sawyer: Doc.
[Kate approaches Sawyer and hugs him]
Sawyer: Hi. Good to see you, Kate.
Kate: You too, James.
[Sawyer looks at the group]
Sawyer: I can't believe it! You’re really here. Son of a bitch actually did it. [John] Locke said he was gonna bring you back, but...[looks around] where is he?
Jack: [Bluntly] John’s dead.
Sawyer: Dead? How?
Jack: Doesn’t matter, he’s gone.
Hurley: So what’s up with you guys in the old Dharma jump suits?
[Sawyer turns to Jin]
Sawyer: You didn’t tell them?
[Jin now speaks perfect English]
Jin: No. I was waiting for you.
Kate: Tell us what?
Sawyer: We’re in the Dharma Initiative.
Jack: They came back to the Island?
Sawyer: No, we came back. And so did you. [Pause] It’s Nineteen Seventy-seven...

[While waiting in the North Valley for Sawyer to return to tell them what to do, Kate approaches Jack who is tapping his now broken wristwatch]
Kate: So this woman who told you how to come back, did she mention that it would be thirty years ago?
Jack: No! Nope, she left that part out.
Kate: So what are we supposed to do now?
Jack: I’m not sure yet.

[In the North Valley, Sawyer retruns with clothes and instructions for Jack, Kate and Hurley. He gets out of the van]
Sawyer: Alright listen. Y’all gonna be the second batch of recruits coming in off the sub. It should be pulling into port right about now so we ain’t got much time. [Looks at Jack] Nice suit, doc. Not exactly Island wear, try this.
[Sawyer throws Jack some 1977 style clothes including a shirt and a pair of trousers]
Jack: You want us to say we came in on the sub? How’s that going to work?
Sawyer: Everyone gets knocked out before the trip, so no one meets each other until we process ‘em.
Jack: Look. We need to find the rest of people from the plane.
Sawyer: If there was a plane then Jin will find it. So we’ve got about ten minutes to make intake or you’ll be camping in the jungle for a long time. There isn’t another batch of recruits due in for six months.
[Jack turns to Kate]
Jack: Whaddya think?
Kate: I think we should listen to Sawyer.
Hurley: I vote for not camping too.
Sawyer: Trust me doc. You'll do what I say then everything will be fine.
[Brief pause. Jack nods in agreement]
Sawyer: Ok then. Let’s move.
[Sawyer followed by the other three get into the Dharma Minivan]

[In his Dharma Minivan, Sawyer drives Hurley, Jack and Kate to the Barracks]
Hurley: Ok. So, it’s Nineteen Seventy-seven?
Sawyer: Yup.
Hurley: And you guys are all members of the Dharma Initiative?
Sawyer: Yup.
Hurley: Well, you do realise those dudes get wiped out right? I mean I saw the pit where all the bodies got dumped.
Sawyer: What about it?
Hurley: Well; aren’t you gonna warn ‘em? Aren’t you gonna stop it from happening?
Sawyer: I ain’t here to play Nostradamus to these people. Besides, Faraday’s got some interesting theories about what we can and can’t do here.
[Jack leans into the conversation from the backseat]
Jack: Did you say Faraday? He’s still here?
Sawyer: Not any more!

[After arriving back on the main island in 2007; Sun and Frank arrive at the Dharma Barracks. The place is derserted and falling apart. suddenly the wind picks up blowing the trees and errie whispers are heard. Sun and Frank turn to and look as the light in the Dharma processing building comes on. They exchange uneasy glances as the door creaks open to reveal Jack's father Christian Shepard]
Christian: Hello.
Frank: Who the hell are you?
Christian: My name is Christian.
Sun: I’m looking for my husband. His name is Jin Kwon. Do you know where he is?
Christian: Follow me...
[Christian re-enters the dilapidated Dharma Processing Centre and Sun follows. A nervous Frank follows after Sun. Inside; Christian shines a torch on several pictures looking for one to show Sun]
Sun: What is this place?
Christian: Seventy two, Seventy six, Seventy eight...
Sun: Where is my husband?
Christian: Ah! Here we go. Seventy seven. [Removes the picture from the wall] He’s um, he’s with your friends.
Sun: What are you talking about? What friends?
[Christian walks over to Sun and Frank as the wind begins to blow strongly outside causing the door to open. He hands Sun the picture and shines the torch on it so that both Sun and Frank can see it]
Christian: I’m sorry but you’ve got a bit of a journey ahead of you.
[Sun looks at the picture. There is a banner labeled “New Recruits” hanging over a group of people including Jack, Kate and Hurley. They are wearing Dharma jump suits. Sun and Frank look at each other shocked and confused]

[Having seen Sayid been arrested and locked up by Sawyer and Jin, Jack heads round to Sawyer's house to speak with him about the situation]
Sawyer: What can I do for you, Jack?
Jack: I don't even know where to start. Uh... How about with Sayid?
Sawyer: I had no choice. He was running around in the jungle, got caught by my people. And seein' as how he can't tell the truth about how he got here, I had to improvise.
Jack: Improvise?
Sawyer: Aha. And for now, Sayid is safe, which is all that matters.
Jack: So where do we go from here?
Sawyer: I'm working on it.
Jack: Really? Because it looked to me like you were reading a book.
[Sawyer smiles]
Sawyer: I heard once Winston Churchill read a book every night, even during the Blitz. He said it made him think better. It's how I like to run things. I think. I'm sure that doesn't mean that much to you, 'cause back when you were calling the shots, you pretty much just reacted. See, you didn't think, Jack, and as I recall, a lot of people ended up dead.
Jack: I got us off the island.
Sawyer: But here you are... Right back where you started. So I'm gonna go back to reading my book, and I'm gonna think 'cause that's how I saved your ass today. And that's how I'm gonna save Sayid's tomorrow. All you gotta do is go home, get a good night's rest. I do what I do
[He leads Jack to the door and opens it]
Sawyer: Now ain't that a relief?
Jack: Yeah.
[Jack leaves]

[In the Dharma security facility security guard Phil is on duty. A teenage boy enters the room and approachs Phil at his desk]
Young Ben: Hey Phil. I am just going to go in there and deliver him a sandwich.
Phil: Alright.
[The boy enters an adjacent room where Sayid is being held in a cell]
Young Ben: Hello. I brought you a sandwich.
[Sayid goes over to the cells railings and takes the paper bag containing the sandwich from young Ben]
Sayid: Thank you.
Young Ben: I didn't put any mustard on it, but if you want some, I can go and get some.
[Sayid looks in the paper bag and then back to the boy]
Sayid: This will be fine thank you.
Young Ben: Are you a Hostile?
Sayid: What do you think I am?
Young Ben: What's your name?
Sayid: My name is Sayid. What's yours?
Younger Ben: I'm Ben.
[Pause. It suddenly dawns on Sayid who the little boy infront of him is]
Sayid: It's nice to meet you Ben...

[There is a knock at Jack's house. Jack opens the door and Faraday bursts in with Miles]
Faraday: Hey Jack, how did you get back? How did you do it, how did you get back to the island?
Jack: Dan, wow....where have you been?
Dan: I've been at Dharma Headquarters in Ann Arbor, I was doing some research, but whats more important right now, how did you get back here, to 1977?
[Jack looks over at Miles]
Jack: What's going on?
Miles: Hey don't look at me, I just carried his luggage.
Faraday: Jack. How?
Jack: We were on a plane and then...
Faraday: And who told you to get on that plane?
Jack: As a matter of fact Daniel it was your mother.
[Dan nods]
Faraday: And how did she convince you Jack? Did she tell you it was your destiny?
Jack: Yeah thats exactly what she said.
Faraday: Well I got some bad news for you Jack, you don't belong here at all. She was wrong.

[Sawyer holds a meeting to discuss what the survivors should do next before their true identities are discovered by Dharma. Suddenly there's a knock at the front door]
Sawyer: Hold your horses, I'll be right there.
[Sawyer picks up and cocks a handgun, placing it behind his back as he opens the door which he opens to reveal Dan and Miles]
Faraday: Hey James.
Sawyer: Welcome to the meeting Twitchy. Good to see you again. Come in, pound cake's in the kitchen, help yourself to the punch.
[Dan enters the house. Miles starts to follow. Saywer pulls him to one side]
Sawyer: Is he still crazy?
Miles: It's on a whole new level man.
Sawyer: [Sarcastically] Great!

[In flashback to mid-late 2004, Faraday is being looked after by a carer in his flat while he is watching footage informing the public that the wreckage of Flight 815 has been found in the Sunda Trench]
On TV: These pictures come from a research vessel off the coast of Indonesia...
Faraday's Carer: How do want your eggs Dan?
[Dan is crying at the footage being shown on the TV]
Faraday's Carer: Dan whats the matter? Why are you so upset?
Faraday: I don't know...
[There is a knock at the door, Dan's carer goes to answer, Charles Widmore enters]
Faraday's Carer: Hello come in. Can I get you a cup of tea?
Charles Widmore: Thank you that would be nice.
Faraday's Carer: Dan you have a visitor.
[Faraday gets out of his chair and in a confused manner he shakes Widmore's hand]
Charles Widmore: Hello Daniel.
Faraday: [Almost in tears] Er...Hello. I'm sorry sir I don't remember...I have a condition that effects my memory and...
Charles Widmore: Don't be embarrased Daniel, weve never met. I'm Charles Widmore.
Faraday: Charles Widmore? Charles Widmore from my research grant?
Charles Widmore: Yes.
Faraday: Its nice to meet you at last, I kept meaning to come and see you but I got a bit...take a seat.
Charles Widmore: Thank you.
[They sit]
Faraday: I just want you to know that I tested it on myself first. I would never hurt Teresa.
Charles Widmore: It's alright Daniel I'm not here because of that. I want to offer you a new opportunity.
Faraday: Really?
Charles Widmore: Yes.
[Dan stares back at the footage of the wreckage of 815 on the TV and starts to cry]
Charles Widmore: Daniel. Whats making you so upset?
Faraday: It's this plane crash. All those poor people...and their families. They're dead!
Charles Widmore: What if I was to tell you Daniel that they're not dead. What if I told you that that plane they have found is an elaborate and expensive hoax.
Faraday: How would you know that?
Charles Widmore: I know Daniel because I'm the one that put it there.
Faraday: Why would you tell me that?
Charles Widmore: I told you Daniel because come tomorrow you're not likely to remember.
[The pair continue to discuss the crash and Widmore offers Dan the chance to go to the island on the frighter]

[Juliet and Sawyer are in their home packing in preparation to leave Dharma for the beach, Juliet packs and is slient. Sawyer stops her]
Sawyer: You called it the minute those yahoos got here. I should have listened to you. You can say I told you so!
Juliet: Maybe after we get to the beach.
Sawyer: Hey. You still got my back?
Juliet: You still got mine?

[Faraday enters The Others/The Hostiles camp alone while Jack and Kate watch from behind some trees]
Faraday: Nobody move. I only want to speak to Eloise. Where is Eloise? Come on! Where is she?
Richard Alpert: I'm sorry but Elo..
[Faraday points his handgun to Richards head]
Richard Alpert: She's not here right now. Do we know each other?
Faraday: It doesn't matter. I need you to take me to Eloise.
Richard Alpert: I already told you that she's not here, so why don't we just...
Faraday: Wheres the bomb Richard?
[Richard looks confused]
Faraday: The Hydrogen Bomb I told your people to bury. Where is it?
Richard Alpert: Listen to me, lower your gun and we'll talk ok? Nobody has to get hurt here. Just put the gun down.
Faraday: I'm going to give you three seconds...One...
Richard Alpert: Don't do this.
Faraday: Two...Thr...
[A gun goes off. Faraday looks down - He's been shot. Richard drops the mug he was holding and heads foward learning over a dying Faraday. As Dan falls it is revealed that he has been shot by his mother Eloise]
Richard Alpert: Why did you do that?
Eloise Hawking: He had a gun on you.
Richard Alpert: He wasn't going to shoot me, Eloise.
[A dying Faraday looks up at his young mother]
Faraday: You knew... that's why you sent me back here... You knew!
Eloise Hawking: Who are you?
Faraday: I'm your.. son. [Faraday dies.]

Follow The Leader [5.15][edit]

[Miles, Jin and Hurley follow Sawyers plan and start to head out towards the beach. Suddenly they hear something. Jin and Miles raise their weapons, but notice that it's Miles' dad - Dr. Chang who has come to meet them. They lower their weapons]
Miles: Dr. Chang? What are you doing here?
Dr. Chang: I could ask you the same question. [Pause] Please I must know is what your friend Faraday said true? Are you from the future?
[Hurley briefly glances over at Miles and Jin and then turns to Dr. Chang]
Hurley: Dude that's ridiculous.
Dr. Chang: Oh really. What year were you born?
Hurley: Erm....1931.
Dr. Chang: [Eyeing Hurley] You're 46?
Hurley: Yeah.....Yes I am.
Dr. Chang: That means you must have fought in the Korean War?
Hurley: [nervous] There's no such thing...
Dr. Chang: Who is the US President?
Hurley: Ok, we're from the future.
[Hurley turns to Miles and Jin]
Hurley: Sorry dudes.

[Richard Alpert sits in his tent fixing a model ship in what appears to be a large glass bottle. An Other enters his tent to inform him of John Locke's return]
Other: Richard. He's back!
Richard Alpert: Who?
[They exit Richard's tent, coming up the beach is John Locke carrying a boar over his shoulders]
John Locke: I brought dinner!
Richard Alpert: [Confused and shocked] John?
[Locke chucks the dead boar in the sand]
John Locke: Hello Richard. It's been a while.
Richard Alpert: It's...been three years. John what happened? Where were you?
John Locke: I'll explain that on the way.
Richard Alpert: On the way? On the way where?
John Locke: It's going to be night soon and you and I have an errand to run and we don't have a lot of time. [Pause] What's wrong?
Richard Alpert: There's something different about you.
John Locke: I have a purpose now...

[Ben and Sun watch on from afar as Locke talks to Richard in The Others camp]
Sun: Who's that man that John's talking to?
Ben: He's Richard Alpert. He's a kind of...advisor. And he has had that job for a very, very long time.
[Sun takes off her rucksack and unzips it talking out the picture of the 1977 Dharma recruits in which Jack, Kate and Hurley feature. She drops the bag and heads into the camp, towards Richard and Locke]
Ben: Sun? What are you...
[Ben follows her]
Sun: [To Richard] Where you here in 1977?
Richard Alpert: Excuse me?
[Sun shows Richard the photo]
Sun: These people. Jack Shepard, Kate Austen and Hugo Reyes, they were here with my husband Jin Kwon. Were you here? Do you remember them? Any of them?
Richard Alpert: Yes, I was here 30 years ago and yes I do remember these people. I remember meeting them very clearly because...I watched them all die.

[Having been caught by the 1977 version of The Others. Jack and Kate sit alone in a tent and discuss Faraday's plan]
Kate: Before we got captured you said that we had to put things back the way they were meant to be. What did you mean by that?
Jack: If we can do what Faraday said our plane never crashes. Flight 815 lands in Los Angeles and everyone we lost since we got here, they'd all be alive.
Kate: And what about us? We just go on living our lives because we never met.
Jack: All the misery that we have been through would just wipe clean, like it never happened.
Kate: It was NOT all misery!
Jack: Enough of it was!

Jack: Maybe I was wrong!
Kate: No, you were right!

The Incident [5.16] and [5.17][edit]

[Jacob sits in a darkened room. He weaves something on a wooden wheel. He then heads outside and into the ocean to a fishing net and places the contents (a red herring) on a rock where he guts it and cooks it. He places it on a leaf to eat and sits back to watch as a wooden ship (presumably The Black Rock) approaches the island. The Man in Black approaches Jacob and sits in the sand next to him]
The Man in Black: Morning.
Jacob: Morning.
The Man in Black: Mind if I join you?
Jacob: Please. You want some fish?
The Man in Black: No thank you, I just ate.
Jacob: I take it you're here because of the ship.
The Man in Black: I am. How did they find the island?
Jacob: You'll have to ask them when they get here.
The Man in Black: I don't have to ask: you brought them here. Still trying to prove me wrong, aren't you?
Jacob: You are wrong.
The Man in Black: Am I? They come. They fight. They destroy. They corrupt. It always ends the same.
Jacob: It only ends once. Everything that comes before is just progress.
The Man in Black: Do you have any idea how badly I want to kill you?
Jacob: Yes.
The Man in Black: One of these days, sooner or later, I'm going to find a loophole, my friend.
Jacob: Well when you do, I'll be right here.
The Man in Black: Always nice talking to you Jacob.
Jacob: Nice talking to you, too.
[The Man in Blackgets up ends heads off leaving Jacob alone on the beach. The camera pulls back to reveal that both men have been sat below the giant statue that is of a crocodile like figure]

[In 1977; Juliet and Sawyer are on the Dharma Sub, they are joined by Kate and the sub leaves the island heading to the mainland]
Kate: We have to get out of here.
Sawyer: Out of here? We're underwater. What the hell are you doing here? How'd you get caught?
Kate: I came back to get you.
Sawyer: Came back to get me for what?
Juliet: Where's Jack?
Kate: Jack is... on his way to blow up a hydrogen bomb.
Sawyer: Why the hell would he do that?
Kate: Does it matter? We have to stop him.
Sawyer: Sorry, I'm gonna pass.
Kate: Did you hear what I just said?
Sawyer: Yeah, I heard you. You just don't get it, Kate - we were happy in Dharmaville 'till you all showed up, and now that's all over...
[Juliet smiles at Sawyer]
Sawyer: So we're going to drink our OJ and take our chances in the real world. [Pause] And if Jack wants to blow up the island... good for Jack.

[After arriving back on the island via a life-raft, Sawyer, Juliet and Kate encounter Rose and Bernard who have not been seen since 'The Lie']
Sawyer: Did you not hear me shout "meet at the creek"?
Bernard: There were flaming arrows raining down around us, killing everyone we knew - well sure, we heard you!
Sawyer: Well we spent all sorts of time looking for you. I had Jin out searching the island grid-by-grid.
Rose: Yeah, we know.
Juliet: You know?
Rose: Yeah sure, you lot joined up with Dharma.
Sawyer: Well damn, I could have brought both of you in! Why didn't you find a way to tell us you were out here?
Rose: Because we're retired.

[Flashback to Hurley being released from prison following the events of 'The Lie.' He exits the prison and heads out to a taxi opening the door]
Hurley: Sorry, I didn't see it was taken, dude.
Jacob: Actually, I'm only going a few blocks, if you want to share...?
Hurley: Cool. You sure?
Jacob: Come on in.
[Hurley gets into the taxi and sits on the backseat next to Jacob. As the taxi starts to move off, Hurley opens a package of Fruit Roll-Ups and offers some of it to Jacob]
Hurley: You want some? It's cherry.
Jacob: No, thanks.
Hurley: So what were you in for?
Jacob: Excuse me?
Hurley: Jail? I was there because I shot three guys... well, I didn't really. I guess they figured it out. What about you?
Jacob: I wasn't in jail.
Hurley: Then what were you doing sitting outside the prison in a cab?
Jacob: I was waiting for you, Hugo.
[Jacob smiles at Hurley, who looks unnerved]
Hurley: Oh?! [Pause] Then you must be dead.
Jacob: I'm definitely not dead.
Hurley: Then what do you want from me?
Jacob: I want to know why you won't go back to the island.
[Another long pause]
Hurley: Because I am cursed.
Jacob: Is that so?
Hurley: Uh-huh. That's why the plane crashed, my friends died: Libby, Charlie. And now they visit me and I can't make it stop.
Jacob: What if you weren't cursed? What if you were blessed?
Hurley: How do you mean 'blessed'?
Jacob: Well you get to talk to the people you've lost, seems like a pretty wonderful thing to me.
Hurley: Sure it's wonderful apart from the part where I'm crazy.
Jacob: I got some news for you, Hugo, and you're just going to have to take my word on this. You are not crazy.
[Hurley looks nervous and confused]
Hurley: Who are you, dude?
Jacob [to taxi driver]: I'm just up here on the left.
[The taxi stops. Jacob once again turns to Hurley]
Jacob: Ajira Airways Flight 316 out of LAX leaves in 24 hours. All you have to do is be on that plane. It's your choice, Hugo. You don't have to do anything you don't want to.
[Jacob touches Hurley on the shoulder and exits the taxi leaving a guitar case next to Hurley]
Hurley: Wait! You forgot your guitar!
[Jacob peers back into the taxi answers Hurley and then leaves]
Jacob: It's not my guitar.

Ilana: Which one of you is Ricardus?
Richard: It's Richard, actually.
Ilana: What lies in the shadow of the statue?
Richard: Ille qui nos omnes servabit.
Ilana: Richard...I'm Ilana. I have something you need to see. [to her crew] Open it up.
[The Others cock their guns.]
Richard: It--it's okay. It's okay. Let them.
[Ilana's team turns over the crate. It contains John Locke's body.]
Richard: [stunned] Where did you find him?
Ilana: In the cargo hold of the plane we came here on...in a coffin.
Sun: I don't understand. If this is Locke... who's in there?

The Man in Black:[Disguised as Locke] Hello, Jacob.
Jacob:...Guess you found your loophole.
The Man in Black: Indeed, I did. And you have no idea what I've gone through to be here.
Ben: You two know each other?
The Man in Black: In a manner of speaking. Do what I asked you to, Benjamin.
Jacob: Benjamin, whatever he's told you, I want you to understand one thing: you have a choice.
Ben: What choice?
Jacob: You can do what he asks, or you can go, leave us to discuss our... issues.
Ben: Oh... so now, after all this time... you've decided to stop ignoring me. Thirty-five years I lived on this island, and all I ever heard was your name, over and over. Richard would bring me your instructions, all those slips of paper, all those lists... and I never questioned anything. I did as I was told. But when I dared to ask to see you myself, I was told, "You have to wait. You have to be patient." But when he asks to see you, he gets marched up here as if he was Moses. So why him? Hmm? What was it that was so wrong with me? What about me?
Jacob: [spitefully] What about you?
Ben: ...Ah. Well... [He stabs Jacob twice in the chest and watches as he falls to the ground]
Jacob:[Quietly] They're coming...
The Man in Black: What? I can't hear ya.
Jacob: They're coming!
[With this, The Man in Black looks alarmed. He then kicks Jacob into the fire and he and Ben watch him burn]

Sawyer: Wait, Juliet, we've got to talk about this!
Juliet: There's nothing to talk about, James. We have to let Jack do what he came here to do.
Sawyer: Well maybe you should have told me about your change of heart before I brought him out to the jungle to kick his ass!
Juliet: Would that have stopped you?
Sawyer: No -
Juliet: Well, then, I'm glad you got it out of your system.
Sawyer: Hey! Ju - [He makes to grab her]
Juliet: [She pulls away] No, James, don't you -
Sawyer: [He backs off, shocked] ...I need you to tell me where all of this is coming from. One minute you're leading the Great Sub Escape and now you're on board with blowing up the damn island?!
Juliet: I -
Sawyer: I got a right to know why you changed your mind.
Juliet: ...I changed my mind when I saw you look at her.
Sawyer: I don't care who I looked at. I'm with you.
Juliet: ...And you'd stay with me forever, if I let you, which is why... I will always love you. And we knew what we had was just for a little while, and - and just because we love each other doesn't mean that we're meant to be together, so if... if Jack can make it so that you guys never come here, then... he should.
Sawyer: [upset] ...Why are you doing this, Juliet?
Juliet: [sadly] I... if I never meet you... then I never have to lose you. [She leaves]

Season Six[edit]

LA X [6.01] and [6.02][edit]

Jack: What happened?
Kate: We're at the hatch.
Jack: Wait, they built it.
Kate: Yeah...They built it.
[Sawyer wakes up and kicks down into the crater of the destroyed hatch]
Sawyer: You were wrong!
Kate: Sawyer!
[Sawyer climbs down into the crater to continue to fight Jack]
Sawyer: That's the damn hatch, just like when we left it when we started jumping through time!

Hurley: Dude, whoever you are you better come out now. I've got a gun and I know how to use it...
[Hurley attempts to cock the gun, while behind him the undergrowth russles. Hurley watches as Jacob appears infront of him]
Jacob: Hey Hugo. You got a minute?
[Jacob and Hurley walk back to the Dharma Van where a dying Sayid is still lying on the ground. Jacob bends down and examines Sayid while Hurley looks on]
Hurley: Where you going dude? Whats going on? Why are you here? I mean you show up in LA, in the back of a cab and tell me to get on that plane that just so happens to get me back to the island. How did you know that would happen?
[Jacob remains silent, still looking over Sayid]
Hurley: Dude you better start taling 'cause my friend Jin is going to be back any minute and He'll...
Jacob: Your friend Jin won't be able to see me.
Hurley: [Pause] Why not?
Jacob: Because I died an hour ago.
Hurley: Sorry dude. That sucks.
Jacob: Thanks.
[Jacob stands and looks at Hurley]
Hurley: You want me to do something crazy again don't you?
Jacob: No. All I want you to do is save Sayid Hugo.
Hurley: Well thats why I sent Jin to get Jack, so Jack can...
Jacob: Jack cannot save him. You have to take Sayid to the temple, the rest of them should be safe there too.
Hurley: The temple? Am I supposed to know where that is?
Jacob: Jin knows. Ask him to take you to the hole in the wall where he was with the French team. Through that opening you can gain access to the temple.
[Hurley looks around for Jin returning]
Jacob: Oh and Hugo, do you still have that Guitar Case I gave you?
Hurley: Yeah...
Jacob: Bring it!
[Hurley looks at Jacob, slightly confused by whats going on]
Hurley: Who are you man?
Jacob: I'm Jacob.

Sawyer: If she dies, I'll kill him.

Charlie: Am I alive?

Charlie: You should have let that happen man. I was supposed to die.

Ben: What are you?
The Man in Black:[disguised as John Locke] I'm not a "what", Ben, I'm a "who".
Ben: You're the monster.
The Man in Black: Let's not resort to name calling.
Ben: You used me. You couldn't kill him yourself, so you made me do it.
The Man in Black: I didn't make you do anything. You should know, he was very confused when you killed him.
Ben: I seriously doubt that Jacob was ever confused.
The Man in Black: I'm not talking about Jacob. I'm talking about John Locke. Do you want to know what he was thinking while you choked the life out of him, Benjamin? What the last thought that ran through his head was? "I don't understand." Isn't that just the saddest thing you've ever heard? But it's fitting in a way because when John first came to the island, he was a very sad man. A victim shouting at the world for being told what he couldn't do, even though they were right. He was weak and pathetic, and irreparably broken, but despite all of that, there was something admirable about him. He was the only one of them who didn't want to leave. The only one who realized how pitiful the life he left behind actually was.
Ben: What do you want?
The Man in Black: Well that's the great irony here, Ben, because I want the one thing that John Locke didn't. I want to go home.

Kate: I'm so sorry. [she and Sawyer look over at Jack] You know, what you said back at the hatch. He's just trying to help us.
Sawyer: I ain't gonna kill Jack. He deserves to suffer on this rock just like the rest of us.

Locke: What did you lose?
Jack: Excuse me?
Locke: They lost one of my bags. What about you?
Jack: You wouldn't believe me if I told you.
Locke: Try me.
Jack: They lost my father.
Locke: I'm sorry?
Jack: He died a couple of days ago in Australia, and I flew down to get him.
Locke: My condolences. [screaming to Oceanic employee handing him his lost luggage form] Yo!
Jack: The coffin was supposed to go on the plane in Sydney, but it didn't. Apparently he is somewhere in transit, which is their way of saying that they have no idea where the hell he is.
Locke: Well, how could they know?
Jack: They're the ones who checked him in. I mean, they have to have some kind of tracking system.
Locke: No, I'm not talking about the coffin. How could they know where he is? They didn't lose your father, they just lost his body. [Jack ponders this as Locke smiles at him] Either way, your story beats the hell out of mine. All that was in my suitcase was a bunch of knives.
Jack: Some kind of salesman?
Locke: Yeah, something like that. Well, it was nice talking to ya, but I hope you find that coffin.
Jack: I hope you find your knives.
Locke: Thanks.
Jack: You mind if I ask what happened to you? I'm only asking because I'm a spinal surgeon. I didn't mean --
Locke: No, don't worry about it. Surgery isn't going to do anything to help me. My condition is irreversible.
Jack: Nothing is irreversible. [hands him his card] If you ever want a consult, just give me a call. It's on the house.
Locke: Well thanks. [reads his card] Jack Shephard, I'm John, John Locke. [shakes Jack's hand]
Jack: It's nice to meet you, John.
Locke: It's nice to meet you, too.

The Man in Black: Hello, Richard. It's good to see you out of those chains.
Richard: [terrified] You?
The Man in Black: Me. [knocks Richard out and looks around at everyone else] I am very disappointed. In all of you!

What Kate Does [6.03][edit]

Miles: And as you can see, Hugo here has assumed the leadership position, so that's... pretty great.

Miles: So nothing? there wasn't anything? No white light? Angels singing? No dead relatives?
Sayid: I remember being shot
Hurley: You're not a zombie, right?
Sayid: No. I'm not a zombie.

Kate: Couple days ago, you asked me why I came back to the island... I need to find Claire. I thought, maybe if I could catch up to you, you could help me - and then, maybe if we could find her and bring her back to Aaron then maybe all of this wouldn't have been for nothing.

Sawyer: It's not your fault she's dead... It's mine. She was sittin' right there, right where you are now, tryin' to leave this place - and I convinced her to stay. I made her stay on this island because I didn't want to be alone. You understand that right? ... But, uh... But I think some of us are meant to be alone. [Sawyer glances down at ring he's holding] I was gonna ask her to marry me.

[Sun, Ilana, Ben, and Frank have put John Locke's body in a grave on the beach]
Ilana: Does anyone want to say something? Did anyone know him?[No one steps up]
Ben: Okay, I knew him. John Locke was...a believer. He was a great man. A much better man than I ever was...And I'm very sorry I murdered him.
'[Everyone is shocked to hear this. Ben and Frank start filling the grave]
Frank:[Under his breath] Weirdest damn funeral I've ever been to...

The Subsitute [6.04][edit]

The Man in Black: You seem to be taking this extremely well.
Sawyer: Taking what extremely well?
The Man in Black: The fact that I'm here.
Sawyer: I don't give a damn if you're dead. Or time travelin' or... ghost of Christmas past. All I care about is this whiskey. So bottoms up. Get the hell out of my house.

Locke: My walkabout. An adventure in the outback. Man against nature. But they wouldn't let me go. And I sat there yelling at them. Shouting at them that they couldn't tell me what I can't do. But they were right. I'm sick of imagining of what my life could be out of this chair, Helen. What it would be like to walk down the aisle with you because its not gonna happen. So if you need me to see more doctors, have more consults, if you need me to get out of this chair, I don't blame you. But I don't want you to spend your life waiting for a miracle because there is no such thing.

Richard: Where is he?
Sawyer: Where the hell did you come from?
Richard: Where is he?!
Sawyer: He ran off.
Richard: Okay, come on, we've gotta go!
Sawyer: Go where?
Richard: To the Temple, let's go, now!
Sawyer: Thanks but I've been to the Temple already. I'm sticking with Locke.
Richard: No, the man you are with is not John Locke.
Sawyer: I know.
Richard: Than why are you with him?
Sawyer: 'Cause he's got answers. He knows why I'm on the Island. Unless you wanna tell me why I'm here, Richard!
Richard: Don't be naive. He's not gonna tell you anything, he's gonna kill you.
Sawyer: If he wanted to kill me he could've done it a dozen times by now.
Richard: You don't understand. He doesn't just want you dead, he wants everyone dead. Everyone you care about, all of them. And he won't stop--[Flees as he hears The Man in Black return]

Sawyer: Do you read?
The Man in Black: Doesn't everybody?
Sawyer: You ever read Of Mice and Men. Steinbeck, it's my favorite.
The Man in Black: No, a little after my time.
Sawyer: It's about these two guys, George and Lenny. Lenny's kinda slow... causin' George problems... so George walks him into the woods and tells him to look out yonder and picture the pretty little house they're gonna live in some day. Then he shoots Lenny in the back of the head.
The Man in Black: That doesn't sound like a very happy ending.
Sawyer: [Sawyer puts a gun to the back of MIB's head] It ain't.
The Man in Black: Something on your mind, James?
Sawyer: I'm wondering what would happen if I was to put a bullet in your head?
The Man in Black: Let's find out?
Sawyer:[Sawyer hesitates and lowers the gun] What are you?
The Man in Black: What I am is trapped. And I've been trapped for so long that I don't even remember what it feels like to be free. Maybe you can understand that. But before I was trapped, I was a man, James. Just like you.
Sawyer: I'm havin' a hard time believin' that...
The Man in Black: You can believe whatever you want, that's the truth. I know what it's like to feel joy... to feel pain, anger, fear... to experience betrayal. I know what it's like to lose someone you love. So if you wanna shoot me, shoot me. But you're so close, James. It would be such a shame to turn back now.

The Man in Black: You're a candidate.
Sawyer: And what does that mean?
The Man in Black: It means you have three choices. You can do nothing and see how it all plays out. [Marks off John Locke's name on the wall] And maybe your name will get marked off. Or you can step up and replace Jacob and be the protector of the Island.
Sawyer: Protect it from what?
The Man in Black: From nothing, James. That's the real joke; there is nothing to protect it from. It's just a damn island! And it will be perfectly fine without you or me or anyone else whose lives Jacob wasted.
Sawyer: You said there were three choices.
The Man in Black: The third choice is we just go. We just get the hell off this Island. Never look back. So tell me, James. Are you ready to go home.
Sawyer:...Hell yes.

Lighthouse [6.05][edit]

Jack: I'm not going anywhere, Hurley.
Hurley: Yeah, I told him you'd say that. That's why he told me to tell you...You have what it takes, Jack.
Jack: [Jack stands, shocked] What did you say?
Hurley: I said "you have what it takes." He said you'd know what it means.
Jack: And Jacob he's at this Lighthouse?
Hurley: Yeah, I think?
Jack: Ok. Well, let's go see Jacob.

Jacob: Jack is here because he has to do something. He can't be told what that is, he's got to find it himself. Sometimes you can just hop in the back of someone's cab and tell them what they are supposed to do. Other times you have to let them look at the ocean for a while.

The Man In Black: [to Jin and Claire] I hope I'm not interrupting anything?
Jin: John?
Claire: That's not John silly. That's my friend.

Sundown [6.06][edit]

Miles: Oh, that Australian chick's back.
Kate: Wait, what?
Miles: You know that blonde, with the baby.
Kate: Claire?
Miles: Right, Claire. She just strolled in here couple hours ago, acting all weird... Still hot, though.

Claire: Why do I have to do it. You could've gotten Sawyer or Jin...Or you could do it yourself?
The Man In Black: If I could do it, I wouldn't be asking you.
Claire: I want what you promised. I want my son back.
The Man In Black: I always do what I say.
Claire: You're going to kill them aren't you?
The Man In Black: Only those that won't listen.

[Sayid treks out into the jungle hears, the trees shake and rustle. The Man in Black appears]
The Man in Black: Hello, Sayid.
[Sayid comes forward and stabs him the in heart]
The Man in Black:[Startled, he pulls the knife from his chest with a grunt. He is unharmed] Now why'd you go and do that?...You want it back. Take it, I won't bite.
Sayid:[He takes it] What are you?
The Man in Black: Well you seem to have some sort of idea about that, Sayid, considering you stabbed me in the chest without even saying hello.

Ben: Sayid! Come on, we have to go now. There's still time.
Sayid: Not for me...

Dr. Linus [6.07][edit]

[Ben rummages through Sawyer's old stash at the beach camp. He finds a book and a couple of pornographic magazines]
Ben: The stuff people bring on their travels...
[He continues to look and finds a bottle of water carrying the Oceanic Logo on its label. Frank Lapidus approaches]
Ben: Oceanic! You know I remember that plane breaking apart as if it were yesterday.
Frank: You're sounding a little nostalgic there.
Ben: Maybe I am.
Frank: You know I was supposed to be flying it? Oceanic 815?
[Ben looks at Frank shocked by the news]
Ben: And why didn't you?
Frank: I overslept. [Pause] You know I keep thinking about how different my life would have been if I was on the plane.
Ben: How different would it have been? The island still got you in the end, didn't it?

Ilana: Pick it up and start digging!
Ben: Digging what?
Ilana: A grave.
Ben: For who?
Ilana: You murdered Jacob. It's for you.

[Miles approaches Ben who is digging his own grave]
Miles: Hey I thought you might want something to eat. I'm afraid all we have is banana and these little green bean things.
Ben: You know I'm not really that hungry.
Miles: Suit yourself.
[Miles starts to walk away]
Ben: Miles! You know you once asked me for 3.2 Million Dollars?
Miles: Yeah.
Ben: You still want it?
Miles: Why would I want your money when there's two people buried right over there called Nikki and Paulo who are buried with 8 Million Dollars worth of diamonds.
Ben: Miles please? If you help free me, when we all leave this place I'll get it for you, all of it. I have contacts that will get it for me.
Miles: Yeah right. What you going to do? Write me a check on this banana leaf?

Ilana: What are you waiting for?
Benjamin Linus: I want to explain.
Ilana: Explain what?
Benjamin Linus: I want to explain that I know what you're feeling.
Ilana: You have no idea what I'm feeling.
Benjamin Linus: I watched my daughter Alex die in front of me. And it was my fault. I had a chance to save her, but I chose the island... Over her. All in the name of Jacob. I sacrificed everything for him... And he didn't even care. Yeah, I stabbed him. I was... so angry.. Confused. I... I was terrified that I was about to lose the only thing that had ever mattered to me... my power. But the thing that really mattered... Was already gone. I'm sorry that I killed Jacob. I am. And I do not expect you to forgive me because... I can never forgive myself.
Ilana: Then what do you want?
Benjamin Linus: Just... let me leave.
Ilana: Where will you go?
Benjamin Linus: To Locke.
Ilana: Why?
Benjamin Linus: Because he's the only one that'll have me.
Ilana: I'll have you.

[Hurley and Jack are lead by Richard to what they believe will be the Temple]
Jack: [To Richard] Where did you come from?
Richard: You wouldn't believe me if I told you. Temples this way.
Hurley: So dude whats the deal? Are you time traveling? 'Cause you look exactly the same as you did 30 years ago.
Richard: I'm not time traveling. This was a gift from Jacob. Only...It's not a gift at all. Its a curse.
Hurley: So what you're like a Terminator?
[Richard looks at Hurley]
Richard: No.

Recon [6.08][edit]

The Man in Black: Because... my mother was crazy. A long time ago, before I... looked like this... I had a mother, just like everyone. She was a very disturbed woman. And, as a result of that, I had some growing pains. Problems that I'm still trying to work my way through. Problems that could have been avoided had things been different.
Kate: Why are you telling me this?
The Man in Black: Because now Aaron has a crazy mother too.

[Claire enters her shelter, collects a knife, and checks on her fake baby. Kate enters the hut]
Kate: Is this where you lived?
Claire: Yeah.
[Kate looks at the fake baby in horror.]
Kate: What is that?
Claire: [Sadly] It's all I had...

[The Man In Black leads his group through the jungle.]
The Man In Black: About a quarter mile ahead there's a clearing. We'll make camp there. Everybody fill up on water. We might be there a couple of days.
Sawyer: A couple of days? I thought you said we were getting off this rock?
The Man In Black: We are.
Sawyer: When?
[Some people within the group notice this dispute. The Man In Black notices them watching him and Sawyer have their arguement]
The Man In Black: Maybe we should talk about this in private.
Sawyer: Great. Let's go.
[The Man In Black leads Sawyer into a jungle clearing away from the rest of the group]
The Man In Black: I wish you hadn't interrupted me.
Sawyer: [Sarcasticly] Oh I'm sorry... I forgot my manners.
The Man In Black: I forgive you.
Sawyer: Yeah right....So what happened back at the temple? How'd you know to rescue everybody from that smoke thing?
The Man In Black: I didn't rescue them. [Pause] I'm the smoke thing.
[Sawyer looks shocked and confused by the news]
Sawyer: You telling me you killed all of those people?
The Man In Black: I gave them the opportunity to leave peacefully and they didn't take it.
Sawyer: Why not?
The Man In Black: Because they're convinced that they're protecting the Island from me, when in fact all I want to do is leave. [Pause] So it's either kill or be killed. And I don't wanna be killed James.

[Having been captured Sawyer is lead onto Widmore's submarine and into a small room where Charles sits at a desk working on a document]
Charles Widmore: Hello, Mr. Ford. My name is Charles Widmore.
[Widmore offers his hand to Sawyer but Sawyer does not shake it]
Charles Widmore: I'm guessing you know who I am?
Sawyer: Of course I do. You're the fella that sent a freighter to the island loaded with guys to kill us all.
[There is a brief pause and a smirk appears on Widmore's face]
Charles Widmore: It's sad, really... how little you actually know.
Sawyer: Well...I know you murdered all them people out there and dropped 'em in a ditch.
Charles Widmore: We didn't murder those people. But I don't expect you to believe that.
Sawyer: Good, I don't.
Charles Widmore: So, why don't you tell me what brought you over to this island.
Sawyer: John Locke sent me.
Charles Widmore: John Locke's dead!
Sawyer: I think we both know the guy I'm talking about's not really Locke. So here's the deal, Chief... I'll go back over there and tell him the coast is clear, that I didn't find anybody. Then I'll bring the old man right to your doorstep... then you can kill him.
[Once again Widmore's face reveals a hint of a smile]
Charles Widmore: And what do you want in exchange, James?
Saywer: One: The people I come back with, people on my boat don't get touched. Not even a hair on their head. And two: You give us safe passage off the Island.
Charles Widmore: How do I know I can trust you?
Sawyer: Same way I know I can trust you. So do we have an agreement?
[Widmore nods his head and extends his arm once again for Sawyer to shake. They shake hands.]
Charles Widmore: Yes. I suppose we do.

[Sawyer returns to The Man In Black's camp and sits by Kate who is cooking something on a camp fire]
Sawyer: What's for dinner?
[Kate looks up at Sawyer]
Kate: Rabbit. [Pause] I think.
Sawyer: Good 'coz I'm starving.
Kate: What are you doing running errands for Locke?
Sawyer: I ain't running errands for nobody.
Kate: He said he sent you over to the other island. Did you find the plane?
Sawyer: Yeah I found it and that ain't the only thing over there. Guy named Widmore set up camp over on the beach. He's got a whole team with him, guys with guns, they're here for Locke.
Kate: So what are you gonna do?
Sawyer: I'm gonna let them fight it out. And while they got their hands full with each other [He pauses and quickly checks no one is listening] You and me are getting the hell off this Island.
Kate: Even if we could get on that plane, who's gonna fly it?
Saywer: We ain't taking the plane Freckles. We're taking the sub.

Ab Aeterno [6.09][edit]

[Jacob has just subdued Richard when he tried to kill him]
Jacob: Who are you?[Holds up the dagger] And who gave you this?
Richard: Where is my wife?
Jacob: I don't know your wife. Was she on the ship?
Richard: She's dead...
Jacob: Than why are you asking me where she is? [Richard can't answer] Did you meet a man in the jungle dressed in black?
Richard: Yes!
Jacob: What did he say to you?
Richard: He said that you were the devil![Jacob seems frustrated at this]
Jacob: What else did he say?
Richard: He said that you took my wife. Where is she?
Jacob: That wasn't your wife.
Richard: Yes it was, yes it was! She is here in hell, just like me!
Jacob: You think you're in hell?
Richard: Where else would I be?
[Jacob drags Richard to the water and starts to drown him]
Jacob: You still think you're dead?! You think you're dead?! Why should I stop?!
Richard: I want to live!
Jacob:[Jacob throws Richard to the ground] That's the first sensible thing you've said. Get up, we need to talk.

Jacob:[To Richard] Imagine that this wine is what you keep calling hell. There are other names for it. Malevolence. Evil. Darkness. And it's all down here swirling at the bottom. Unable to get out, because if it did it would spread. Now, the cork is this Island. [Puts a cork in the jug, trapping the wine] And it's the only thing keeping the darkness where it belongs.

Jacob: That man who told you to kill me believes it is in every person's nature to sin. I bring people here to prove him wrong.
Richard: So you were the one who brought my ship here?
Jacob: Yes,
Richard: And there were other people here before me?
Jacob: Yes, many.
Richard: What happened to them?
Jacob: They're all dead.
Richard: If you brought them here, why didn't you help them?
Jacob: Because I wanted them to help themselves. To know the difference between right and wrong without me having to tell them. It's all meaningless if I have to force them do anything. Why should I have to step in?
Richard: But if you don't he [The Man in Black] will.
Jacob:[Pauses, taken aback] Do you want a job?
Richard: A job? Doing what?
Jacob: Well if I don't want to step in, maybe you could do it for me. You could be my, my representative, an intermediary to me and the people I bring to the Island.
Richard: What would I get in return?
Jacob: You tell me...
Richard: I want my wife back.
Jacob: I can't do that.
Richard: Can you absolve me of my sins?
Jacob: I can't do that either.
Richard: Then I never want to die...I want to live forever.
Jacob:[Smiles, lays a hand on his shoulder] Now that, that I can do.

[the Man in Black sits on a log in the shade, he holds a white stone. Jacob shows up]
Jacob: Morning.
The Man in Black: Morning.
Jacob: I see you got my present.
The Man in Black: Don't gloat, Jacob. It doesn't become you.
Jacob: So you tried to kill me.
The Man in Black: You expect an apology?
Jacob: I'd just like to know why you did it.
The Man in Black: Because I want to leave. Just let me leave, Jacob.
Jacob: As long as I'm still alive, you're not going anywhere.
The Man in Black: Then now you know why I want to kill you. And I will kill you, Jacob.
Jacob: Even if you do, someone else will take my place.
The Man in Black: Well, then I'll kill them too.
Jacob: [Hands him a jug of wine] Well here's something to pass the time. See ya around. [Jacob leaves]
The Man in Black: Sooner than you think. [He smashes the jug against the log, releasing the wine]

[Hurley has just helped Richard make peace with his long deceased wife]
Hurley: She kinda said something else. Something you have to do.
Richard: What?
Hurley: She said you have to stop The Man in Black. You have to stop him from leaving the Island. And she said that if you don't... (speaking in Spanish) ...we'll all go to hell.

The Package [6.10][edit]

The Man In Black: I'm leavin' for a little while. I got an errand to run.
Sayid: When will you be back?
The Man In Black: In the morning. Keep an eye on the camp while I'm gone.
[The Man In Black turns to leave, Sayid interrupts him and he turns back]
Sayid: I don't feel anything.
The Man In Black: Excuse me?
Sayid: Anger. Happiness. Pain. I don't feel it anymore.
The Man In Black: Maybe that's best, Sayid. It'll help you get through what's coming.

The Man In Black: Is there something wrong, Claire?
Claire: Um... what you said to Jin... about the names on the wall? You told him you needed them all to get off the island?
The Man In Black: Yes I did.
Claire: So... was my name on the wall?
The Man In Black: Nope!
Claire: Then it doesn't matter if I get on that plane then. You don't really need me do you?
The Man In Black: That's not true, Claire. I need you. And there's plenty of room on that plane for all of us.
[Claire seems happy by what she has just been told, but at the same time slightly sad]
Claire: When we go home, Aaron's not going to know me. I'll be a stranger to my own son. He thinks Kate's his mother...Was her name on the wall?
The Man In Black: No it isn't. Not anymore. But I need Kate.
Claire: Why?
The Man In Black: Because Claire, I'm three people shy of getting off this island and Kate can help me get those people on the plane. But... once she does... then whatever happens, happens.

[The Man in Black and Sayid prepare to leave]
Sawyer: Where are you two going with the guns?
The Man in Black: Hydra Island, we're taking the outrigger.
Sawyer: Well, why do you gotta take a boat? can't you just do your smoke thing and fly your ass over the water?
The Man in Black: If I could do that, do you think I'd still be here?
Sawyer:[Sarcastic] No, 'cause that'd be ridiculous!

Charles Widmore: Do you know who I am?
The Man In Black: You're Charles Widmore. Do you know who I am?
Charles Widmore: Ha! Well obviously you're not John Locke. Everything else I know is a combination of myth, ghost stories, and jungle noises in the night.
[The Man In Black eyes the sonic pylons again]
The Man In Black: I think you know a lot more than that judging by these pylons.
Charles Widmore: Why did you come here?
The Man In Black: You took one of my people, Jin Kwon, I want him back.
Charles Widmore: I have no idea what you're talking about.
The Man In Black: You know, a wise man once said that war was coming to this island...I think it just got here.

[Inside the Hydra Station Jin is brought to see Charles Widmore]
Charles Widmore: Mr Kwon, my deepest apologies for everything that's been done to you. My name is...
Jin: I know who you are. Why did you bring me here?
Charles Widmore: We searched the Ajira plane, discovered your wife's luggage and found this inside. I thought you might want to have it. Go ahead, turn it on.
[Widmore hands Jin a digital camera, Jin switches it on and sees images of Ji Yeon, his daughter on the display.]
Charles Widmore: Her name is Ji Yeon, she's your daughter. I understand you've never seen her before. I have a daughter too. I know what it's like to be kept apart. I understand the one thing you want is to be reunited with your wife and daughter. But it would be short lived. If that thing masquerading as John Locke ever got off this island, your wife, your daughter, my daughter, everyone we know and love, would simply cease to be. I came here to make sure that doesn't happen.
Jin: How?
Charles Widmore: Come with me. I think it's time for you to see the package.
Jin: What package?
Charles Widmore: It's not a what. It's a who.

Happily Ever After [6.11][edit]

[Widmore is having Desmond locked into a room that harnesses electromagnetism]
Widmore: I'm sorry to do this to you, but you are going to have to make a sacrifice.
Desmond: Yeah, and what would you know about sacrifice?
Widmore: My son is dead. My daughter hates me. And I have never even met my grandson. I know quite a bit.

Charlie: This doesn't matter. None of this matters. All that matters is that we felt it.

Daniel: Do you believe in love at first sight; Mr. Hume?
Desmond: Excuse me?
Daniel: The first time I saw her, I was walking through this museum a few weeks ago. She... she works here. She was on the lunch break. She was eating a chocolate bar. She has these incredible blue, blue eyes, red hair. And as soon as I saw her, right... right in that moment, it was like... it was like I already loved her. And that's when things got weird.
[Daniel search out in his bag and takes a book off]
Daniel: That same night after I saw that woman... I woke up and I wrote this.
Desmond: So what is it?
Daniel: I'm a musician. I have no idea. So I took it to a friend of mine at Caltech. He's a math whiz. He said this is Quantum mechanics. He said these equations are so advanced that only someone who'd been studying physics their entire life could've come up with them.
Desmond: So... so what do they mean?
Daniel: Okay, imagine... imagine something terrible is about to happen, something catastrophic. And the only way to stop it from happening was by... releasing a huge amount of energy. Like setting off a nuclear bomb.
Desmond: You wanna set off a nuclear bomb?
Daniel: Just listen. What if this... all this... what if this wasn't supposed to be our life? What if we... we had some other life and for some reason, we changed things? I don't want to set off a nuclear bomb, Mr. Hume. I think I already did.
Desmond: Listen, mate, um... I don't know what any of this has to do with me. So...
Daniel: Why did you ask my mother about a woman named, Penny? It happened to you too, didn't it? You felt it.
Desmond: I don't know... I don't know what I felt.
Daniel: Yes, you do. You felt love.
Desmond: That's impossible because I don't know anything about this woman. I don't know... I don't know where she is. I don't even know if she exist. She's... She's an idea.
Daniel: No, Mr. Hume. She's my half-sister. And I can tell you exactly where and when you can find her.

Everybody Loves Hugo [6.12][edit]

Libby: It's okay, it's okay. I'm crazy.
Hurley: Yeah, probably, but we all got something, right? I mean it takes a lot of guts to go up to a total stranger and tell them that you know them from some bizarro alternate universe ... I'm scared just, saying hi to a girl.
Libby: You're doin' fine.

The Man in Black: Remind me, Desmond, how long were you pressing the button down in that hatch?
Desmond: Three years.
The Man in Black: And here you are, back for more. If I didn't know better, I'd say the Island has it in for you.
Desmond: Oh there's nothing special about me, brother.
The Man in Black: I'm sorry.
Desmond: You're here too. If I didn't know better, I'd say the Island has it in for all of us.
The Man in Black: I couldn't agree more.
[The Man in Black is unsettled when he sees the ghostly boy he saw before staring at them]
Desmond: Who is that?
The Man in Black: ...Just ignore him.
Desmond: Do you know that boy?
The Man in Black: I said ignore him!
[Desmond sees the boy smile and run away]

The Man in Black: Why aren't you afraid?
Desmond: Excuse me?
The Man in Black: You're out here in the jungle, alone, with me. No one else on earth knows you're here. So I wanna know, why aren't you afraid?
Desmond: What's the point in being afraid? [MIB looks slightly intimidated, before smiling and then throwing Desmond down the well they were standing beside]

The Last Recruit [6.13][edit]

[Jack and The Man in Black are meeting for the first time]
Jack: You look just like him.
The Man in Black: Does it bother you?
Jack: No, what bothers me is I have no idea what the hell you are.
The Man in Black: Sure you do.
Jack: Why John Locke?
The Man in Black: Because he was stupid enough to believe he had been brought here for a reason. Because he pursued that belief until it got him killed. And because you were kind enough to bring his body back here in a nice little wooden box.
Jack: And he had to be dead before you could look like him?
The Man in Black: That's right.
Jack: And who else have you looked like?
The Man in Black: Jack, what do you really want to ask me?
Jack: Our third day here, I chased my father through the jungle, my dead father. Was that you?
The Man in Black: Yes, that was me.
Jack: Why?
The Man in Black: You needed to find water. Jack, I know this must be hard for you to understand, but all I've ever tried to do is help you.
Jack: To "help me?" To do what?
The Man in Black: Leave! But because Jacob chose you you were trapped on this Island, before you even got here. Now Jacob's dead, we don't need to be trapped here. We can get on a plane and fly away anytime we want.
Jack: If we could just get on a plane and fly away, why would you even still be here?
The Man in Black: Because it has to be all of us.
[Jack still looks uncertain]
The Man in Black: What?
Jack: John Locke was the only one of us who ever believed in this place. He did everything he could to keep us from leaving this Island.
The Man in Black: John Locke was not a believer, Jack. He was a sucker.

The Man in Black: Were you following us, Claire?
Claire: Yeah,
The Man in Black: Why?
Claire:[Looking at Jack] Because he's my brother.
The Man in Black: Looks like you two have a lot of catching up to do. I'll leave you to it.
Jack: Claire, I'm-- I'm sorry we--
Claire: Did he tell you? That he was the one pretending to be our father?
Jack: Yeah, he did.
Claire: You know I pretty much gave up hoping that any of you would come back. And now that you're here...it's good to see you, Jack.
Jack: Yeah, it's good to see you too.
Claire: Well, I've never had much in the way of family so it really means a lot that you're coming with us.
Jack: Actually, I haven't decided if I'm coming with you.
Claire: Yeah you have.
Jack: What do you mean?
Claire: You decided the moment you let him talk to you, just like the rest of us. So, whether you like it or not, you're with him now.

[Zoe, Widmore's associate, enters The Man in Black's camp]
The Man in Black: What can I do for you?
Zoe: You took something from us. We want him back.
The Man in Black: I don't know what you're talking about.
[Zoe goes for her walkie, MIB's people take aim on her]
The Man in Black: No, no, it's okay.
Zoe:[On her walkie] Show them what we're capable of.
[A few seconds later, a mortar round lands behind The Man in Black, causing an explosion. He doesn't even twitch, unimtimidated. Zoe gives him a walkie]
Zoe: You can call us on that when you're ready to return what you took.
[Zoe leaves. The Man in Black drops the walkie and crushes it with his stick]
The Man in Black: Well, here we go.

[The group are on the sailboat to Hydra Island]
Jack: This doesn't feel right.
Sawyer: What doesn't feel right?
Jack: Leaving The Island.
Sawyer: Wanna me why not?
Jack: Because I remember how I felt the last time I left. Like a part of me was missing.
Sawyer: They got pills for that, doc.
Jack: We were brought here because we were supposed to do something, James. And if Locke-- if that thing wants us to leave, maybe it's because he's afraid of what happens if we stay.
Sawyer: Get off my damn boat.
Jack: What?
Sawyer: You got a choice to make and you make it now. Either you're with you and you keep that damn crazy talk to yourself or you're going in the water.
Jack: James this is a mistake, and I know there's a part of you that feels that. The Island isn't done with us.
Sawyer: Yeah, well I'm done with this Island. So if you wanna take a leap of faith, take it. Get off my damn boat.
Jack:[Pause] I'm sorry I got Juliet killed. [Jack jumps off the boat]

[After Widmore attacks with mortars, The Man in Black carries a wounded Jack into the jungle]
The Man in Black: Don't worry, Jack. Everything's going to be okay. You're with me, now.

The Candidate [6.14][edit]

The Man in Black: I need for you to trust me.
Jack: Why should I trust you?
The Man in Black: Because I could kill you, Jack. Right here, right now. And I could kill every single one of your friends, and there is not a thing you could do to stop me. But instead of killing you, I saved your life, and now I want to save them too.

The Man in Black: Are you sure you won't reconsider, Jack?
Jack: Yeah, I'm sure.
The Man in Black: Well whoever told you that you need to stay had no idea what they were talking about.
Jack: John Locke told me that I needed to stay. [pushes the Man in Black in the water]

Jack: Wait. [stops Sayid from pulling the wires out of the C4]
Sawyer: What the hell are you doing Doc?
Jack: Nothing is going to happen.
Sawyer: What?
Jack: Don't pull those wires out. We're going to be OK. Nothing is going to happen.
Sawyer: If I don't pull these wires, Locke is going to blow us to kingdom come.
Jack: No he's not! Locke can't kill us.
Hurley: Uhh, what?
Jack: This is what he wanted. This has been what he has been waiting for. Everything that he has done has been to get us here. He wanted to get us all at the same place at the same time in a nice enclosed space where we had no hopes of getting out.
Jin: I don't understand.
Jack: Locke said that he couldn't leave the Island without us. I think that he can't leave the Island unless we're all dead. He told me that he could kill any one of us whenever he wanted, so what if he hasn't because he's not allowed to? What if he's trying to get us to kill each other?
Sawyer: Stay out of my way Doc.
Jack: If he wanted that thing to blow up, why did he put a timer on it? Why not just throw it inside?
Sawyer: I don't care.
Jack: Nothing is going to happen.
Sawyer: It's not your decision to make.
Jack: He can't kill us!
Sawyer: I'm not going to stand here and do nothing!
Jack: James... We are going to be OK. You just have to trust me.
Sawyer: Sorry Doc, I don't. [pulls the wires from the C4 and the clock then speeds up]

Sayid: Listen carefully. There's a well on the main Island a half mile south from where we were just left. Desmond is inside it. Locke wants him dead, which means you are going to need him. Do you understand me?
Jack: Now why are you telling me this?
Sayid: Because it is going to be you Jack. [Takes the bomb and runs]
Hurley: Sayid!
[Sayid gets to the front of the sub, away from the others, and the bomb goes off, killing him.]

The Man in Black: [Looking out at sea] It sunk...
Claire: You mean the sub? But everyone was on board. What, they're all dead?
The Man in Black: Not all of them.
[MIB grabs a rifle and his pack and starts off into the night]
Claire: Wait, where are you going?
The Man in Black: To finish what I started.

Across The Sea [6.15][edit]

Mother: Every question I answer will simply lead to another question.

Jacob: What is it?
Boy in Black: It's a game. You play it.
Jacob: How do you know how?
Boy in Black: I just know.

Mother: Jacob doesn't know how to lie. He's not like you.
Boy in Black: Why, what am I like?
Mother: You're... special.

Boy in Black: [as they play Senet] You can’t do that, Jacob.
Jacob: Why not?
Boy in Black: Because it’s against the rules
Jacob: You made the rules.
Boy in Black: I found it. One day, you can make up your own game and everyone else will have to follow your rules.

Mother: May I join you?
Man In Black: [sheaths his dagger] Yes…How are you?
Mother: I’m worried.
Man In Black: Well, Mother, you should be. I spent 30 years searching for that place you brought me as a child--that…waterfall with that beautiful light. I’ve walked this island from end to end, not once coming close to finding it. But, then I began to think--what if the light underneath the island--what if I could get to it from someplace else? Figuring out how to reach it took a very long time.
Mother: The people with you, they saw this, too?
Man In Black: Yes, they have some very interesting ideas about what to do with it.
Mother: Do with it? You don’t’ have any idea wh--
Man In Black: I have no idea because you wouldn’t tell me, Mother.
[Man In Black dislodges a stone, which allows light to filter in - Mother notices a large, wooden wheel leaning against the cavern wall]
Mother: What is that?
Man In Black: It’s a wheel…We’re going to make an opening…one much bigger than this one; and, then I’m going to attach that wheel to a system we’re building. A system that channels the water and the light. And then I’m gonna turn it. And when I do…I’ll finally be able to leave this place.
Mother: How do you know all this? How do you know it will work?
Man In Black: I’m special…Mother.

[Mother has brought Jacob to the cave of light]
Mother: Do you recognize this place?
Jacob: Yes,
Mother: Do you remember what I showed you here?
Jacob: The light.
Mother: You're going to protect it now.
Jacob: What's down there?
Mother: Life. Death. Rebirth. It's the source. The Heart of the Island. Just promise me that no matter what you do, you won't ever go down there.
Jacob: Would I die?
Mother: It would be worse than dying, Jacob. Much worse. [She pulls out a jug of wine and pours some into a cup. She whispers a Latin incantation over it] Here, drink this.
Jacob: What happens if I do?
Mother: You will accept the responsibility that you will protect this place for as long as you can. And then you'll have to find your replacement.
Jacob: I don't want to protect this place.
Mother: Someone has to.
Jacob: I don't care.
Mother: My time is over.
Jacob: Why, why is your time over?
Mother: It has to be you, Jacob!
Jacob: No it doesn't, you wanted it to be him [The Man in Black]! But now I'm all you have.
Mother: It was always supposed to be you, Jacob. I see that now. And one day you'll see it too. But until then, you don't really have a choice. Now please, take the cup and drink.
[Jacob drinks from the cup]
Mother: Now you and I are the same.

What They Died For [6.16][edit]

[Ben, Miles, and Richard are on their way to The Barracks]
Miles: You sure this is a shortcut?
Ben: I lived in these houses a long time, Miles. I think I can remember how to get there.
Miles: Yeah well, I lived in these houses thirty years before you did; otherwise known as last week. And I have no idea where the hell we are.
Ben: Guess it's a good thing you're following me.

[While helping to get C4 from Ben's secret room, Miles notices an ancient looking door]
Miles: What's in there? A secret-er room?
Ben: It was the room I used to summon The Monster. But that was before I realized it was summoning me.
[Miles looks confused; Ben opens his case of C4]
Ben: Well Richard, I don't know how much we need. Are we planning on disabling the plane or blow it to hell?
Richard: Blow it to hell.
Ben: Than we'd better take it all.

[Ben has given up Widmore and Zoe to the Man in Black]
Ben: Sorry, Charles.
The Man in Black: What a pleasant surprise. How nice to finally talk to you without those fences between us.[Looks to Zoe] And who might you be?
Zoe: Zoe, my name is Zoe--
Widmore: Don't talk to him. Don't say anything!
[The Man in Black interrupts by swiftly slitting Zoe's throat with his knife, she collapses in Widmore's arms dying]
Widmore: Why would you do that?
The Man in Black: You told her not to talk to me. That made her pointless. Now... Charles, it's clear you're not afraid to die. So there's only one way to motivate you to tell me what I want to know. Soon this will all be over. I'll get what I want. And I'll finally leave this Island. And when I do, the first thing I'm gonna do is kill your daughter. Penny.
Widmore: You'll kill her whether I talk to you or not.
The Man in Black: No, I won't. I give you my word.
Widmore: And I'm supposed to just take your word?
The Man in Black: You tell me why you came back here and I will not hurt your daughter.
Widmore: I brought Desmond Hume back here because of his unique resistance to electromagnetism. He was a measure of last resort.
The Man in Black: What do you mean "last resort?"
Widmore: [Looks at Ben] I'm not saying any more in front of him.
The Man in Black: Well than whisper to me.
[Widmore whispers in MIB's ear, before he is shot several times by Ben, killing him]
Ben: He doesn't get to save his daughter.
The Man in Black: Ben...You never cease to amaze me. Fortunately, he already told me what I needed to know. So, no harm done.
Ben: Good...Did you say there were some other people to kill?

Kate: So you're the one who wrote our names on the wall?
Jacob: I am.
Kate: Sun and Jin Kwon and Sayid Jarrah. You wrote their names on the wall?
Jacob: Yes,
Kate: Is that why they're dead?
Jacob: I'm very sorry.
Kate: You're sorry?
Hurley: Kate...
Kate: No, I wanna know why. I wanna know that Sun and Jin and Sayid didn't die for nothing.
Jacob:...Come and sit down and I will tell you what they died for. I'll tell you why I chose them. And why I chose you. And I'll tell you everything you need to know about protecting this Island, because by the time that fire burns out, one of you is gonna have to start doing it. [The group gathers around] I don't really know where to start.
Hurley: How about why you brought us to the Island.
Jacob: I brought all of you here because I made a mistake. A mistake I made a very long time ago, and now, because of that there's a very good chance every single one of you and everyone you've ever cared about is going to die.
Sawyer: What mistake?
Jacob: You call him "The Monster." But I'm responsible for what happened to him. I made him that way. And ever since then he's been trying to kill me. It was only a matter of time before he figured out how, and when he did, someone would have to replace me. And that's why I brought you all here.
Sawyer: Tell me something, Jacob. Why do I gotta be punished for your mistake? What made you think you could mess with my life? I was doing just fine until you dragged my ass to this rock.
Jacob: No you weren't. None of you were. I didn't pluck any of you out of some happy existence. You were all flawed. I chose you because you were all like me. You were all alone. You were all looking for something you couldn't find out there. I chose you because you needed this place as much as it needed you.
Kate: Why did you cross my name off of your wall?
Jacob: Because you became a mother. It's just a line of chalk in a cave. The job is yours if you want it, Kate.
Jack: What is the job?
Jacob: There's a light at the center of this Island. You have to make sure it never goes out. That's how you protect it.
Sawyer: Your monster friend said there's nothing to protect it from.
Jacob: You have to protect it from him. You must do what I couldn't. What I wasn't able to do.
Jack: You want us to kill him. Is that even possible?
Jacob: I hope so, because he is certainly going to try to kill you.
Hurley: So...how are you gonna pick?
Jacob: I'm not going to pick, Hugo. I'm going to give you the one thing I was never given. A choice.
Kate: And if none of us chooses?
Jacob: Then this ends very badly.
[There is a pause as everyone looks at one another]
Jack: I'll do it. This is why I'm here. This is...this is what I'm supposed to do.
Jacob: Is that a question, Jack?
Jacob: Good, then it's time.

[Sawyer, Kate, and Hurley watch as Jacob initiates Jack as the new Island guardian]
Sawyer: Just when I thought that guy had a god complex before...
Kate: James...
Sawyer: Yeah. I know,
Hurley: I'm just glad it's not me.

[The Man in Black and Ben find Desmond has escaped from the well he was trapped in]
Ben: What did Widmore say to you?
The Man in Black: He said Desmond was a fail-safe. Jacob's last resort in case, God forbid, I managed to kill all of his beloved candidates. One final way to make sure I never leave this Island.
Ben: Then...Why are you happy he's alive?
The Man in Black: Because I'm gonna find Desmond, and when I do he's gonna help me do the one thing that I could never do myself. I'm gonna destroy the Island.

The End [6.17] & [6.18][edit]

Jack: Jacob didn't say anything to me about Desmond.
Sawyer: Doesn't sound like he said anything about anything.
Hurley: That's kind of true, dude. He's worse than Yoda.
Sawyer: All right, ya'll head to your heart of the island and I'll go back and get the magic leprechaun out of that well.
Jack: If we leave a trail can you catch up with us?
Sawyer: [nods] Hell, yeah, I can.
Jack: Then be safe.
Sawyer: [to Kate] I'd ask you along, but that'd take all of the fun out of me telling you you can't come.
Kate: [smiles] I guess I'll just have to resist the urge to follow you anyway.

Kate: Why did you take the job, Jack?
Jack: Because I was supposed to.
Kate: Why? Because some stranger wrote our names on a wall?
Jack: I took it because the island's all I've got left. It's the only thing in my life I haven't managed to ruin.
Kate: You haven't ruined anything. Nothing is irreversible.
Hurley: This would be so sweet if we weren't all about to die.

[Jack's group confronts The Man in Black's group in a clearing]
The Man in Black: Well this oughta be interesting.
Kate:[Immediately grabs Sawyer's rifle and opens fire on MIB] YOU KILLED THEM!
[MIB is not phased at all, Sawyer restrains Kate]
The Man in Black: I'd save your bullets.[Confronts Jack] So it's you?
Jack: Yeah, it's me.
The Man in Black: Jacob being who he is, I was expected to be a little more surprised. You're sort of the obvious choice, don't you think?
Jack: He didn't choose me. I volunteered.
The Man in Black: I assume you're here to stop me?
Jack: I can't stop you. In fact I uh, I wanna go with you.
The Man in Black: I'm sorry Jack, I think you're a little confused about what I came here to do.
Jack: No I'm not. You're going to the far side of the bamboo forest, to the place I've sworn that I'll protect. And then you think you're going to destroy the Island.
The Man in Black: "I think?"
Jack: [Smiles]That's right, because that's not what's going to happen.
The Man in Black: And what's gonna happen, Jack?
Jack: I'm gonna kill you.
The Man in Black:[Visibly intimidated]... How are you planning to do that?
Jack: That's a surprise.
The Man in Black: Alright then, let's get on with it.

[Jack and The Man in Black are lowering Desmond into the heart of the Island]
The Man in Black: This remind you of anything, Jack?
Jack: What?
The Man in Black: You and me, Desmond going down into a hole in the ground. If there was a button down there we could argue whether or not to push it. It'd be just like old times.
Jack: You're not John Locke. You disrespect his memory by wearing his face, but you're nothing like him. Turns out he was right about most everything. Just wish I could have told him that while he was still alive.
The Man in Black: He wasn't right about anything, Jack. And as soon as this Island drops into the ocean and you drop with it, you're going to realize that.
Jack: Well I guess we'll just have to see which one of us is right.

The Man in Black: [holding a knife to Jack's throat] I want you to know, Jack, you died for nothing!
Kate: [shoots MIB in the back] I saved you a bullet!
[Jack gets to his feet; MIB looks out at the Island as it slowly crumbles]
The Man in Black: You're too late...
[Jack kicks The Man in Black over the cliffs, killing him]

[The ground begins to shake violently
Sawyer: We gotta go now.
Kate: I don't understand. Locke's dead, why is this still happening?
Jack: Because whatever Desmond turned off...I need to turn it back on again. But if it doesn't work, if I don't get it done you all need to leave now. You need to get on that plane.
Kate: You can come with us too, Jack. You don't have to do this.
Jack: No I do have to do this.
Kate No, you don't! Let the Island sink, Jack.
Jack: Kate...I can't. [to Sawyer] You think you can get that boat across the channel in time?
Sawyer: Yeah, I can manage.
[Jack gets up and shakes Sawyer's hand.]
Jack: Good luck to you, James.
Sawyer: Thanks, doc...for everything.
Ben: [Ben calls out] James!
[Ben throws him the walkie-talkie.]
Ben: If the Island's going down, I'm going down with it.
Jack: Hugo, you better get going.
Hurley: Uh-uh, no way. You think I'm going down that? I'm with you, dude.
Jack: Okay. Kate...you gotta go. Get Claire on that plane.
Kate: Tell me I'm gonna see you again.
[Jack shakes his head no. They passionately kiss each other one last time.]
Kate: I love you.
Jack: I love you.
[Jack, Hurley and Ben leave while Kate cries.]

[After Jack heals him of his paralysis, Locke remembers his past life]
Locke:[Brought to tears] Did you see that?
Jack: See what? [Locke looks at Jack, overjoyed to see him; Jack has a flash of when he and Locke opened the Hatch but ignores it, confused] Mr. Locke, you need to lie back and take it easy.
Locke: [Trying to get up, very emotional] No, what we need to do is go.
Jack: No, you can't get up.
Locke: [Smiles happily] Will you come with me?
Jack: We are not going anywhere. You've just had extensive spinal surgery. Now you need to lie back. I- I need to see my son.[Starts to leave]
Locke: You don't have a son.
Jack: What?
Locke: You don't have a son, Jack.
[Jack seems confused and starts to leave]
Locke: Jack! I hope someone can do for you what you just did for me.
Jack: Get some rest, Mr. Locke.

James: [is caught trying to get candy from a vending machine] It's okay. I'm a cop.
Juliet: Maybe you should read the machine its rights.
James: [laughs] That's funny.
Juliet: Can I tell you a secret?
James: Please.
Juliet: If you unplug it, and then you plug it back in again, the candy just drops right down.
James: Is that right?
Juliet: Yes, and its technically legal.
James: I'll give it a shot. [unplugs and cuts off power to the room] Oops.
Juliet: It worked. [hands the candy bar to him and remembers their life on the island]
James: Whoa. Did you feel that?
Juliet: We should get coffee sometime.
James: I'd love to, but that machine ate my dollar. I only got one left.
Juliet: [smiles] We could go dutch.

[In the sideways world, Locke arrives outside of the church. He finds Ben waiting]
Locke: Hello, Benjamin.
Ben: Hello, John.
Locke: Is everyone already inside?
Ben: I believe most of them are, yes.
[Locke starts to wheel his way toward the entrance]
Ben: I'm very sorry for what I did to you. John. I was selfish. Jealous. I wanted everything you had.
Locke: What did I have?
Ben: You were special John...and I wasn't.
Locke: Well if it helps, Ben, I forgive you.
Ben: Thank you, John. That does help. It matters...more then I can say.
Locke: What are you gonna to do now?
Ben: I have some things that I still need to work out. I'm gonna stay here awhile. [Locke nods and begins to leave] You know, I don't think you need to be in that chair anymore.
[Locke pauses, unsure; slowly, he rises, steps out of the chair and watches as it rolls away]
Locke: Bye, Ben.[Ben nods, as Locke goes inside the church]

Hurley: No, no way. I'm not going to let you die.
Jack: Hurley, I'm already dead.
Hurley: You said you would protect the Island.
Jack: And that's what I'm doing.
Hurley: You're committing suicide!
Jack: I'm not. This is the way its supposed to happen. This is what I'm supposed to do.
Hurley: You're not supposed to die! The island needs you!
Jack: Hurley, it needs you.
Hurley: What?
Jack: It needs to be you, Hugo.
Hurley:[Overcome with emotion]...I can't...It's supposed to be you.
Jack: No it was only supposed to be me so I could do this. But if someone has to take care of it, if someone has to protect it, then it should be you. Hurley, I believe in you.
Hurley: ...All right, I'll take it. But its only temporary, as soon as you get that light back on, I'm pulling you straight up and giving it rightt back to you, deal?
Jack: Deal.

Jack: Desmond, you've done enough. You want to do something, go home and be with your wife and son.
Desmond: What about you, Jack?
Jack: I'll see you in another life, brother.

Ben: I think Desmond's gonna be okay.
Hurley:...Jack's gone.[Breaks down in tears]
Ben: He did his job, Hugo.
Hurley: But it's my job now! What the hell am I gonna do?
Ben: I think you'll do what you do best: Take care of people. And you can start by helping Desmond go home.
Hurley: How? People can't leave the Island.
Ben: That was how Jacob ran things. Maybe there's another way, a better way.
Hurley: Can you help me?
Ben: I'm sorry?
Hurley: I could sorta use someone with, like, experience. For a little while. So...will you help me, Ben?
Ben:...I would be honored.
Hurley: Cool...

[Flash sideways - Ben is still sat outside the church. Hurley comes outside and sees him.]
Hurley: Oh, hey dude.
Ben: Hello, Hugo!
Hurley: We're all inside.
Ben: I don't think I'm coming in.
[Hurley turns to leave then looks back to Ben.]
Hurley: You know, you were a real good number two.
Ben: And you were a great number one, Hugo.
Hurley: Thanks, dude. I'll see ya.

[Jack has entered the back of the church in the sideways world. He finds his father's coffin inside. Upon touching it the memories of his life on the Island come rushing back. He then opens the coffin and finds it is empty; he closes it disappointed]
Christian: Hey, kiddo.
Jack:[Shocked] Dad?
Christian: Hello, Jack.
Jack: ...I don't understand. You died.
Christian: Yeah, I did.
Jack: Then how are you here right now?
Christian: How are you here?
Jack:[Pauses] I died too.
Christian: [They hug as Jack becomes wracked with emotion] It's ok, it's ok, son. It's ok.
Jack: I love you, dad.
Christian: I love you too.
Jack: Are you...are you real?
Christian:[Laughs] I sure hope so. I'm real, you're real, everything that happened to you is real. The people in that church, they're real.
Jack: And everyone else, they're all dead too?
Christian: Everyone dies sometime, kiddo. Some before you, some long after you.
Jack: Are they all here now?
Christian: Well, there is no NOW here.
Jack: Where are we, dad?
Christian: This is the place that you all made together so that you could find one another. The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people. That's why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them and they needed you.
Jack: For what?
Christian: To remember and let go.
Jack: Kate. She said we were leaving.
Christian: Not leaving, no. Moving on.
Jack: Where are we going?
Christian: Let's go find out.

Locke: We've been waiting for you. [Final line in the series]


The New Man in Charge[edit]

[Screen text: Dharma Logistics Warehouse. Orote Peninsula, Guam. The Present.]

Ben: My name is Benjamin Linus. I'm from the Home Office.
Hector: Nobody from the Home Office has ever come out here.
'Ben': There's a new man in charge, he sent me.
Glenn: Sent you to do what?
Ben: Tie up a few loose ends. Your services are no longer required, gentlemen. We're closing this place down. So, you're free to go.
Hector: But we've been loading the palettes under the drones for 20 years now.
Glenn: What are we supposed to do?

[Ben hands them some packages of money.]

Ben: This is your severance pay. I'd say you can do pretty much anything you want.
Glenn: So, you work with the DHARMA Initiative?

[Ben makes an expression upon hearing this question.]

Ben: The DHARMA Initiative hasn't existed in almost 20 years.
Hector: That's not true. We still get a teletype before every drop.
Ben: It's automated. Comes from the Lamp Post station in LA. There hasn't been a person posted there since you two started. That's why the man in charge has me going around, closing up shop.
Glenn: Lamp Post station?
Ben: [smiles] I've already said more than I should've. Before you leave, please lock the doors, turn out the lights.

[Ben starts to leave. Hector and Glenn follow.]

Hector: Wait. You can't just walk out of here. We deserve answers!

[Ben turns back around.]

Ben: All right. Before I go, I'll let you each ask a question. But just one. So, make it count.
Glenn: Where have we been sending these palettes? Where are they dropped?
Ben: An Island.
Glenn: How's that possible? The coordinates are different every time.
Ben: The Island moves.
Glenn: [scoffs] How does the Island--
Ben: Uh-uh! One question. [to Hector] Your turn.
Hector: We're on Guam. So this Island is somewhere in the tropics, right? [He fetches a box] So explain this. Polar bear biscuits. How is there a polar bear on a tropical Island?
Ben: Polar bears, actually. Plural.

[The Orientation intro plays, displaying the Hydra logo and the text "Orientation - Station 1 - The Hydra".]

Dr. Chang: Hello, I am Dr. Pierre Chang. This is the orientation video for station one of the DHARMA Initiative, the Hydra. For purposes of security, please do not divulge my name to any outside parties. [he smiles] I wouldn't want to have to resort to using an alias in the future. The chief purpose of this station is to conduct biological and behavioral research on various animal, bird and marine subjects. Here are some of the duties you may be asked to perform. [A caged bird shrieks behind him] Genetic alteration. These fascinating hybrids, or "hy-birds" as we call them, will be released and monitored to see how they adapt to the unique properties of the Island-- successful advanced studies in larger mammals. Ursus maritimus, or polar bears, possess a keen sense of memory and adaptability. These traits make them ideal candidates for electromagnetic studies that will be conducted at a secondary site where their comfort in cold temp-- It's important when dealing with the bears that you do not show affection or become attached in any way. Also, do not underestimate their intelligence and cunning. These rules must always be followed. I repeat, the bears are not your friends. Rewarding the bear with a fish biscuit, once it has successfully performed a complex puzzle. After the training is completed, you will tranquilize the bear. Affix this tracking device around the subject's neck. At which point it will be transported to the Orchid station for the next phase of research. Remember, be sure to confirm that the female bears have not been impregnated before transport, as the electromagnetic levels at the Orchid have an extremely harmful effect on early term gestation. As you've already learned, we do animal research here at Hydra. Unfortunately, one must consider the most dangerous animal of all, humans. And so, there is another more secluded test site, where we are conducting significantly more sensitive work. The Island's indigenous population, some of you may have heard them referred to as "Hostiles", are acquired on the main Island, sedated and brought here, to Room 23. Because the subjects are unwilling participants, security personnel should always be present during these sessions. Under no circumstances are you to engage subjects in conversation. The purpose of these interrogations is to better understand the Hostiles' way of life, their origins, and particularly their worship of an Island deity they refer to as "Jacob". After the research team has concluded their tests, inject this into the back of the subject's neck. Then place these goggles over his or her eyes. Hitting this switch will commence the visualization while the drugs take effect. [shouting over the film music] The dream-like quality of the film combined with the cutting edge pharmaceuticals will create an amnesia of sorts. Any memory of his or her interrogation will be effectively wiped clean. While these interrogative measures may seem extreme, rest assured, they are vital...our temporary truce with the Hostiles is not violated. This concludes your orientation of the Hydra station. Do not discuss the nature of these experiments with other members of the Initiative. Enjoy your time here on Hydra Island. Namaste and good l--

[In the rec room, a connect four game is being played alone. Ben approaches.]

Ben: Hello, Walt.

[He sits.]

Walt: What are you doing here?
Ben: Like my note said, a friend of yours sent me.
Walt: I don't have any friends.
Ben: We all have friends. Even me.
Walt: You here to kidnap me again?
Ben: I'm genuinely sorry about that. But what's done is done. I can't change the past. I can only take responsibility for it. Walt, I understand what you've had to go through. I know the difficulties you've had pretending to be someone you're not.

[Walt begins to dismantle the game.]

Ben: Walt, I'm here to help you.
Walt: Why?
Ben: Because you're special. And I bet nobody's told you that in a very long time.
Walt: What good does that do me?
Ben: We need you. You have work to do. Starting with helping your father.
Walt: My father's dead.
Ben: Doesn't mean you can't help him. Will you go with us, Walt?

[Ben shows him a Granola bar he took from the warehouse in Guam. Walt looks at it.] [Outside, Ben leads Walt to parked DHARMA van.]

Ben: Come on, it's OK. You ride shotgun.

[They both get into the van.]

Hurley: Dude.

[Hurley is revealed to be in the backseat.]

Walt: Hurley.
Hurley: It's great to see you, Walt.
Walt: I kept hoping one day somebody would come back for me. They said I was crazy.

[Hurley sits forward in his seat.]

Hurley: You're not crazy, dude. Not even close. You just need to get back to the Island, that's all. It's where you belong. It's where you've always belonged.
Walt: Why?
Hurley: I wanna talk to you about a job. All right, Ben, let's get out of here. It's time for us all to go home.

[Ben starts the engine and the van drives off into the distance.]
