Episode Quotes
Jack: He didn't mean it, you know.
Kate: What?
Jack: Sawyer. When he said he didn't want you to go with him, he didn't mean it.
Kate: He didn't mean it, why'd he say it?
Jack: He's trying to protect you. That's why I asked you not to come back for me.
Kate: Hey! Why you sticking up for Sawyer? He'd never do it for you.
Jack: Because I love you.

Jack: Is the funeral over?
Funeral Director: There was no funeral, sir, only a viewing. Nobody showed up.
Jack: Nobody? You sure?
Funeral Director: Just you. My deepest condolences. Friend or family?
Jack: Neither.

Ben: I'm telling you this because history is about to repeat itself, right here, right now.
Jack: Let me guess, you've... you've got us surrounded and if I don't do what you say, you're gonna... you're gonna kill all my people.
Ben: No, Jack. You are.
Jack: And, how am I gonna do that, Ben?
Ben: The woman you're travelling with. The one who parachuted onto the island from a 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 have 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.

Jack: No, I'm getting them all off the island, all of 'em!
Ben: Let me ask you something, Jack. Why do you want to 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?

Jack: Tom, are ya there?
Tom: Yeah, Jack, I hear ya.
Jack: I'm gonna lead my people up to the radio tower and I'm gonna make a call and I'm gonna get 'em all rescued, every one of 'em. And, then, I'm gonna come find you... and I'm gonna kill ya.

Charlie: Bonnie, let's just get this over with, okay? What's the code?
Desmond: She's not gonna tell you, brother.
Charlie: Yeah, she's gonna tell me!
Desmond: What makes you say that?
Charlie: 'Cause you said it's my destiny to turn off that jammer. Okay, Bonnie, we're gonna die down here, alright? And, let's be perfectly honest, one-eyed maniac just killed your friend, he shot you in the back. It would appear that your glorious leader, Ben, put him up to it. Are you a sodding idiot? You have the opportunity to make Ben very, very angry. Why would you not take that?

Alex: (as Danielle looks at her) What?
Ben: Alex... this is your mother.

Kate: (on Ben) 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... that he failed. And, then, I'll kill him.

Sawyer: All they got left is three guys and four guns.
Juliet: And, all we've got, James, are two people and no guns.
Sawyer: So, we'll wait till night.
Juliet: Night's not going to change the fact that we're unarmed. If you want to kill yourself, that's fine but before you go...
Sawyer: Shh! Do you hear that?

Tom: Okay. I give up.
Sawyer: (shoots Tom) That's for taking the kid off the raft.
Hurley: Dude, it was over. He surrendered.
Sawyer: I didn't believe him.

Dr. Hamill: How much have you had to drink today, Jack?
Jack: Okay, I'll tell you what, you do this. You get my father down here. Get him down here right now. And, if I'm drunker than he is, you can fire me!

Jack: Hey. Stay where you are, we're almost up to the tower. You'll be safer there.
Hurley: Yeah, I got ya, we'll stay put until you like, you know, phone home.

Ben: Jack, I know you think you're saving your people but you need to stop this. It's a mistake.
Jack: The mistake was listening to you.
Ben: This'll be your last chance, Jack. I'm telling you, making that call is the beginning of the end.
Naomi: I've got it, I've got a signal!
Ben: Jack, please, you don't know what you're doing!
Jack: I know exactly what I'm doing.

Locke: Please, put the phone down.
Jack: No. You're done keeping me on this island.
Locke: I will kill you if I have to.
Jack: Then, do it, John.

Jack: Been flying a lot.
Kate: What?
Jack: The golden pass that they gave us, I've been using it. Every Friday night, I... fly from LA to Tokyo or Singapore... Sydney. And, then, I-I get off and I have a drink and then I fly home.
Kate: Why?
Jack: Because I want it to crash, Kate. I don't care about anybody else on board. Every little bump we hit or turbulence, I mean I... I actually close my eyes and I pray that I can get back.
Kate: This is not gonna change...
Jack: No, I'm sick of lying! We made a mistake.
Kate: I have to go. He's gonna be wondering where I am.
Jack: We were not supposed to leave.
Kate: Yes, we were. Goodbye, Jack.
Jack: We have to go back, Kate. We have to go back!
