Episode Quotes
Sawyer: Why you going east? Thought you said the barracks were due south?
Locke: Because, James, we have to make a little detour first.
Sawyer: Detour to what?
Locke: There's a cabin I have to go to.
Hurley: I thought the cabin was back that way.
Locke: What'd you say, Hugo?
Hurley: Umm... I, uhh, thought you were talking about the airplane cabin.
Sawyer: Why are we wasting our time going to some shack, anyway?
Locke: Because we're supposed to.
Sawyer: Right... like you were supposed to throw a knife into that Naomi chick's back?
Locke: Uh huh.
Sawyer: You mind telling us who you're getting your orders from, Colonel Kurtz?
Locke: I got 'em from Walt.

Jack: Hey, Daniel. Why did you bring the gun?
Daniel: Uhhh... as a precaution.
Jack: Precaution against what?
Daniel: Uhh, okay, see, umm... rescuing you and your people... can't really say it's our primary objective.
Jack: Then, what is?

Sawyer: What the hell do you mean you saw Walt?! In a dream?!
Locke: No dream, it was Walt. Only... taller.
Sawyer: Taller?! What?! Like a giant?! O-kay, what exactly did Walt tell you?
Locke: He said I had work to do, that I had to stop this woman, Naomi, from bringing the rest of her people here.
Sawyer: What, you didn't ask any follow-up questions?!
Locke: Ben had shot me and left me for dead, Walt saved my life so I pretty much took him at his word.
Sawyer: He shot you... yet here you are, fit as a fiddle, tromping through the jungle?!
Locke: (as he shows Sawyer his bullet wounds) The bullet went in one side and came out the other. I'd probably be dead if I still had a kidney there. Anything else?

Daniel: Miles! Miles! Hey! Hey! What are you doin'? What are you doin'? These are good people!
Miles: Then, why'd Naomi use the damned code? Yeah, you remember when she said, 'Tell my sister I love her'? Well, she doesn't have a sister! That's what we're supposed to say if we get captured, have a gun to our heads!

Kate: Listen, Naomi was killed but not by us. It was... it was a man by the name of John Locke. He's not with us anymore.
Miles: Kate, seriously, if I have to ask you again...
Kate: Even if I took you to her body, you wouldn't know what happened!
Miles: I'll know! Now, take me to her body!

Ben: (to Alex) There's something I need to tell you.
Karl: Keep your mouth shut, Mr. Linus.
Ben: Karl. Now, if you're gonna sleep with my daughter, I insist you call me Ben.

Ben: Mind if I ask you a question, James?
Sawyer: Yeah, I do.
Ben: Why'd you leave Kate behind?
Sawyer: Wastin' your time, Yoda.
Ben: I know it's not pleasant but let's face it, you really don't stand a chance now.
Sawyer: Chance of what?
Ben: James, look at yourself. Yes, on this island, you're brave, daring, handsome, you're someone but if you left with them... back in the real world, a low-life scam artist like you could never compete with a first class surgeon. I think Kate was really upset when you made your choice to come with us. Thank God she has Jack there to comfort...
(Sawyer starts beating Ben)
Locke: James! Don't!
Sawyer: Don't what?! Anyone wanna tell me why we're keeping this guy alive?!
Locke: We're keeping him alive because he's been on this island a lot longer than any of us. Because he has information we need. And, because, apart from his mouth, he's completely harmless.
Sawyer: His mouth put that hole in your gut?
Locke: Okay, James, let's-let's execute him right here, right now! In front of his daughter!
Sawyer: It's only a matter of time before he gets us, Johnny. And, I bet he's already figured out how he's gonna do it.

Miles: I said let's go.
Jack: You need to put the guns down.
Miles: What?!
Jack: Put the guns down.
Miles: Now, why would I do that?
Jack: 'Cause our friends are out in the jungle right now holding a gun at your head and his head. So, I'm gonna forget about the misunderstanding, just put the guns down.
Miles: Come on, how stupid do you think I...
(shots are fired)
Jack: I dunno, Miles. How stupid are ya?

Translator: Dinosaur?
Charlotte: Not by a few million years. It's an Ursus maritimus.
Translator: Wait, Ursus? As in bear?
Charlotte: As in polar bear.

Sayid: And, what do you do, Miles?
Miles: I collect soil samples!
Sayid: Oh, that's nice. Well, maybe you can help me. You say you're not here on a rescue mission and the world at large believes us to be dead. But, here we are, alive and well, and you don't seem remotely surprised to see us.
Miles: Oh my God, you guys were on Oceanic flight 815 - wow! That better?

Locke: Get up, you're coming with us.
Charlotte: What, what?! We need to stay where we are so that they can find us!
Locke: See, there's your problem. We don't wanna be found.

Supervisor: Who am I speaking with?
Frank Lapidus: Doesn't matter who I am, you're showing footage of Seth Norris and that's not him. Listen, this guy married his high school sweetheart at 19, he always wore his wedding ring and I'm telling you there's no ring on that body.
Supervisor: Sir, it's likely the ring fell off.
Frank Lapidus: I'm telling ya, that is not him.
Supervisor: How exactly is it that you know all about Captain Norris?
Frank Lapidus: Because I was supposed to be flying Oceanic 815 on that day.
