Sayid: I'm sorry if what I said was confusing but I asked Jin to come.
Sun: You need someone to translate and you need at least two people who know how to sail.
Sayid: Desmond managed by himself.
Sun: And look where he ended up.
Desmond: Are you still pushing it?
Jack: Yeah, we're still pushing it.
Master Sergeant: 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'll 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.
Eko: Charlie, I need your help!
Charlie: Oh, now I'm back in your good graces, father?
Hurley: (after Sawyer offers him a Nutribar) No, thanks. Not hungry.
Sawyer: Are you serious?
Michael: Hey. Thanks for coming out here, risking your neck for my boy.
Jack: Live together, die alone, man.
Jack: So... when you ran off, I guess you just forgot to mention that you still have a sailboat. Why'd you come back?
Desmond: (laughs) Do you think I did it on purpose? I was sailing for two and a half weeks, bearing due west and makin' nine 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 do you know why? (Jack shakes his head) Because this is it. This is all there is left! This ocean and this place here... we're stuck in a bloody snowglobe! There's no outside world, there's no escape!
Charles Widmore: You wanna ride?
Desmond: Not with you.
Charles Widmore: Get in the car!
Charles Widmore: (opening a box of cash) This is for your new life... away from my daughter. The conditions are simple. No contact, no calls, no post. You just... run away, Desmond.
Desmond: And, what makes you think I would just run away?
Charles Widmore: Because you're a coward!
Eko: But I am going to push the button. Why wouldn't I?
Locke: Because you don't wanna be a slave.
Eko: I am a slave to nothing.
Locke: You're a slave to that. Just like I was. So, I'm gonna tell you again... don't push it.
Eko: Do not tell me what I can't do.
Locke: No, it's not real! We're only puppets! Puppets on strings! As long as we push it, we'll never be free!
Eko: Well, you're free now, John. Do not come back.
Hurley: (as Jack hands him a gun) No way, if I take that, I'm gonna kill someone.
Sawyer: Ain't that the point?
Hurley: I thought the point was to get Walt back.
Desmond: The boat's all yours, brother... for all the good it'll do you.
Sayid: I don't know how to sail.
Desmond: Then I suggest you find someone who does.
Jin: (in Korean) I won't leave you. Not now.
Sun: (in Korean) You won't leave me, Jin... because I'm coming with you.
Kate: It's a trap. A net. Rousseau's got them all over the island.
Sawyer: How the hell would you know that?
Kate: I tripped one with Jack. We ended up... never mind.
Sawyer: The doc told me you all got caught in a net, I thought he meant, uhh... something else.
Kate: Since when did you and Jack start talking about me?
Hurley: That bird just say my name?
Sawyer: Yeah, it did. Right before it crapped gold.
Desmond: Well, maybe he knew he'd be a lousy dad. Thought he was doing what was best for ya.
Claire: He was doing what was best for him.
Penny: Desmond, what are you running from?
Desmond: I have to get my honour back! And, that's what I'm running to.
Locke: So, what did one snowman say to the other snowman?
Desmond: Smells like carrots!
Locke: Hello, Desmond.
Desmond: Hello yourself, box man.
Desmond: 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: (to Desmond) Sober up. We're gonna get a good night's sleep and tomorrow... we're gonna find out what happens if that button doesn't get pushed.
Kelvin Inman: Are you him?
Kelvin Inman: What did one snowman say to the other?
Desmond: What are you talking about?
Desmond: What was all that about then?
Kelvin Inman: Just saving the world.
Desmond: Why do you wear that suit?
Kelvin Inman: So I don't get infected out there.
Desmond: Why does Mr. Eko carry around a stick covered in scripture?
Locke: Because he's a priest.
Eko: (breathless) Charlie, do you know how they got the hatch door open?
Charlie: No, but if you hum it I can probably play it...
Sawyer: My theory - they're aliens. That's why they use the fake beards. Their heads are made of posthetic.
Hurley: 'Prosthetic', dude.
Sawyer: You can't even spell and now you're correcting me?
Jack: It's too late to go back now, Hurley. We already caught them following us once, if they don't believe that we trust Michael, they'll kill us all! I'm sorry that I didn't say anything. But you have to know that I would never bring you out here if I didn't have a plan!
Sawyer: What plan...
Claire: What happened out there, Charlie?
Charlie: Do you want to hear the part about me nearly being killed by the flaming fireball or the flying fork?
Kelvin Inman: See that brown stain there? That's Radzinski. He put a shotgun in his mouth when I was asleep. The bitch of it was I only had a hundred and eight minutes to bury the poor bastard.
Desmond: Well, if you don't want me to go crazy, next time, let me go out.
Kelvin Inman: Tell me, Desmond... why'd you leave that nice, old lady's army? Oh, I remember now, you got kicked out because you couldn't follow orders.
Desmond: And, why did you leave you army, Kelvin, huh?
Kelvin Inman: Because men followed my orders.
Charlie: John! Look, seriously, you're about to be detonated!
Eko: (after throwing Charlie's belt onto the magnetic wall) Is that a joke?!
Charlie: I'll see myself out.
Eko: John, this is your last chance to end this. Open the door and I will forgive you.
Locke: Forgive me for what?
Charlie: Eko? Wait... just wait a second. You know, I don't think it's a good idea, Eko. We're in a very confined area... Oh, bollocks!
Desmond: What was the incident?
Kelvin 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: I think your friends just blew themselves up, brother.
Locke: They're not my friends.
Kelvin Inman: I was a spook for ten years, Des, I know when I'm being followed.
Desmond: What you doing with my boat?
Kelvin Inman: I'm fixin' it.
Desmond: You were leaving?
Kelvin Inman: Well, I mean not yet. She's still about a week away. You wrecked it pretty good, Des. Whaddya think? Wanna come with me?
Desmond: Come where?! What about the button?
Kelvin Inman: Screw the button, man. Who knows if it's even real.
Desmond: WHY DID YOU LIE TO ME?
Kelvin Inman: I lied to you because I needed a sucker to save the world after I left.
Ms. Klugh: She says she knows your beard's fake, Tom.
Mr. Friendly: Well, thanks for pointing that out, Kate. Can't tell you how much this thing itches. And thanks for telling her my name, Bea.
Henry Gale: Where's your beard?
Mr. Friendly: I think they... know.
Desmond: You've killed us. You'll kill us all.
Locke: No. I just saved us all.
Desmond: I'm sorry for whatever happened that made you stop believing but it's all real. And now I've got to go and make it all go away.
Locke: Wait... Desmond!
Desmond: I'll see ya in another life, brother.
Locke: (to Eko) I was wrong.
Desmond: (before turning the failsafe key) I love you, Penny.
Michael: Who are you people?
Henry Gale: We're the good guys, Michael.
Hurley: But... what about my friends?
Henry Gale: Your friends are coming home with us.
Man #1: Ms. Widmore?
Man #1: It's us. I think we found it.
