SAYID: Your distress signal? The message I heard, you said, “It killed them all.”
DANIELLE: We were coming back from the Black Rock. It was them. They were the carriers.
SAYID: Who were the carriers?
DANIELLE: The others.
SAYID: What others? What is the Black Rock? Have you seen other people on this Island?
DANIELLE: No, but I hear them. Out there, in the jungle. They whisper.
El momento finalista de la semana es uno mucho más divertido: el campo de golf de Hurley.
HURLEY: Dudes, listen. Our lives suck. Everyone’s nerves are stretched to the max. I mean, 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?
HURLEY: Look, all I’m saying is, if we’re stuck here, then just surviving’s not going to cut it. We need some kind of relief, you know. We need some way that we can, you know, have fun. That’s right, fun. Or else we’re just going to go crazy waiting for the next bad thing to happen.
KATE: This letter wasn’t written to you. You wrote this letter. Your name’s not Sawyer, is it?
SAWYER: It was his name. He was a confidence man. Romanced my momma to get to the money, wiped them out clean, left a mess behind. So I wrote that letter. I wrote it knowing one day I’d find him. But that ain’t the sad part. When I was 19, I needed 6 grand to pay these guys off I was in trouble with. So I found a pretty lady with a dumb husband who had some money. And I got them to give it to me. How’s that for a tragedy? I became the man I was hunting. Became Sawyer. Don’t you feel sorry for me. [He grabs the letter from her]. Get the hell out. Get out!
Además de ser un experto en poner motes a casi todos los personajes con los que se cruza, Sawyer tiene también algunas de las mejores frases de la serie. Como ésta, que es la finalista de la semana:
SAWYER: Baby, I am tied to a tree in a jungle of mystery. I just got tortured by a damn spinal surgeon and a gen-u-ine I-raqi.
CHARLIE: Bloody Hell! Are these the people who were here before us?
LOCKE: What are you talking about?
CHARLIE: Uh, just, you know, the, the, there could have been people here before us, right?
LOCKE: Clearly. But, who were these men?
JACK: Actually, one of them is female.
LOCKE: Our very own Adam and Eve.
La secuencia de arriba plantea un enigma (uno muy importante) que no se resolvería hasta 111 episodios después, pero la sorpresa del episodio es que Sun hable inglés, el momento finalista de esta semana.
SUN: I need to talk to you.
MICHAEL: You speak English?
MICHAEL: What? You speak English? Why didn’t you say anything?!
SUN: My husband doesn’t know.
JACK: [off camera, at first] Leave him alone! 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 and he tried to save her, and now you’re about to crucify him? We can’t do this. Everyman 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. Fresh water, up in the valley. I’ll take a group in at first light. If you don’t want to go 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 going to die alone.
Esta semana hay propina, porque el live together, die alone tiene que estar sí o sí en cualquier recopilatorio de Lost que se precie, pero esta otra charla también merece una mención.
LOCKE: I’m an ordinary man, Jack, meat and potatoes, I live in the real world. I’m not a big believer in magic. But this place is different. It’s special. The others don’t want to talk about it because it scares them. But we all know it. We all feel it. Is your white rabbit a hallucination? Probably. But what if everything that happened here, happened for a reason? What if this person that you’re chasing is really here?
JACK: That’s impossible.
LOCKE: Even if it is, let’s say it’s not.
JACK: Then what happens when I catch him?
LOCKE: I don’t know. But I’ve looked into the eye of this Island. And what I saw was beautiful.
