Episode Notes
This episode marks the death of Ilana.

Episode Quotes
Carmen Reyes: Everybody loves Hugo. You know who doesn't? Women.
Hugo: Ma!
Carmen Reyes: You need a woman in your life, especially one who has not nursed you.
Hugo: That's disgusting.

(after Ilana blows up)
Jack: Now what?
Richard: We get more dynamite or she died for nothing.
Jack: Maybe she died to show us to stay the hell away from dynamite.

Locke: Hello.
Desmond: Hello.
Locke: I'm sorry Sayid tied you up, but he was afraid you'd run before we had a chance to talk.
Desmond: I don't blame him. Although as I explained to him before he left, I have nowhere to run to, brother.
Locke: Well, if that's not the best argument against captivity that I've ever heard, I don't now what is.

Miles: A warning might have been nice there, Hugo.
Hugo: I did say "run."

Miles: That happen a lot? Dead people yelling at you.
Hugo: It happens enough.
Miles: And you just listen to whatever they say?
Hugo: Dead people are more reliable than alive people.

Locke: If I didn't now better, I'd say this island has it in for you.
Desmond: Do you know better?
Locke: Excuse me?
Desmond: Well, there's nothing special about me, brother. This island has it in for all of us.
Locke: Yes it does.

Hugo: So whatta think we should say to Locke when we get there? I mean, how do you break the ice with a smoke monster?
