Ben: We all answer to someone, John.
Locke: And, who might that be?
Ben: His name is Jacob.
Locke: Okay, then. Take me to Jacob.
Ben: I cant do that. (Locke stands up to leave) Where are you going?
Locke: Hell, Ben, if you don't want to take me, maybe someone else will. I'll just go and ask Richard.
Ben: Why would Richard take you?! He doesn't know where Jacob is, he doesn't talk to Jacob.
Locke: Well, who talks to him?
Ben: I do!
Locke: Oh, you're the only one who talks to him?
Ben: That's right!
Locke: And, no-one else knows where he is?
Ben: I was born here on this island. I'm one of the last that was. Most of these people you see, I brought them here so Jacob talks to me, John. He tells me what to do, trusts me,
Locke: And, no-one else has ever seen him?
Ben: That's right.
Locke: How convenient. You know what I think, Ben? I think there is no Jacob. I think your people are idiots if they believe you take orders from someone else. You are the man behind the curtain. The Wizard of Oz. And, you're a liar.
Ben: And, what might you base that theory on, John?
Locke: Because if you were telling the truth... your hand wouldn't be shaking.
