Man of Science, Man of Faith [2.1] edit

Christian Shephard: [to Jack] You might want to try handing out some hope every once in awhile. Even if there's a 99 percent probability that they're utterly, hopelessly screwed, folks are much more inclined to hear that 1 percent chance that things are going to be okay.

Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: What's that thing where doctors make you feel better just by talking to you?
Jack Shephard: Bedside manner?
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Yeah, that. Yours sucks, dude.

Jack Shephard: You don't know what you're talking about, man.
Desmond Hume: I don't? Why not?
Jack Shephard: Because with her situation that would be a miracle, brother.
Desmond Hume: Oh, and you don't believe in miracles?
[Jack laughs and shakes his head]
Desmond Hume: Right. Well then, I'm going to give you some advice anyway. You have to lift it up.
Jack Shephard: Lift it up?
Desmond Hume: Your ankle. You've got to keep it elevated. It's been nice chatting.
Jack Shephard: Jack.
Desmond Hume: Jack, I'm Desmond. Good luck, brother. See you in another life, yeah?

Adrift [2.2] edit

James "Sawyer" Ford: [after pulling a bullet out of his shoulder] You got a Band-Aid?

Claire Littleton: What do you suppose all that's about?
Charlie Pace: I reckon Jack's going to do something heroic.

James "Sawyer" Ford: [to Michael on the remains of the raft] What are you gonna do, splash me?
Michael Dawson: [to a toddler Walt] Hey little man, look, I guess I can't call you that -- I mean, because look how big you are. So, you and I -- well, we're not going to see each other for a while, Walt. But you are going to have a great life. I know your mommy, she's going to take real good care of you. And Brian is going to take good care of you, too. But, you know what? I just want you to know that no matter where you go that I -- that your daddy -- yeah, your daddy -- he loves you very, very much. And I always will. Always, okay.

Orientation [2.3] edit

John Locke: I just don't think 30 dollars are worth getting angry about.
Moderator: Well, Francine feels like 30 dollars...
John Locke: Francine feels a little too much if you ask me. You all do. I mean, seriously: "So-and-so never called me back", "my mother stole 30 dollars from me". I never even knew who my parents were. A couple of years ago, my birth mother found me, and... She told me, I was special! And through her, I met my real father. Great news, right? Well, he pretended to love me just long enough to steal my kidney because he needed a transplant! And then he dropped me back in the world like a piece of trash. Just like he did on the day that I was born! You want your damned 30 dollars back? I want my kidney back!!!

Helen Norwood: I like bald guys.
John Locke: I'm not bald.
Helen Norwood: I can wait.

Pierre Chang: [as Marvin Candle] Welcome, I'm Dr. Marvin Candle, and this is the orientation film for Station 3 of the DHARMA Initiative. In a moment you'll be given a simple set of instructions for how you and your partner will fulfill the responsibilities associated with the station. But first, a little history. The DHARMA Initiative was created in 1970, and it is the brainchild of Gerald and Karen DeGroot -- two doctoral candidates at the University of Michigan. Following in the footsteps of visionaries such as B.F. Skinner--
[the film skips]
Pierre Chang: --imagined a large scale communal research compound where scientists and free thinkers from around the globe could pursue research in meteorology, psychology, parapsychology, zoology, electromagnetism, and Utopian social--
[the film skips]
Pierre Chang: --Danish industrialist and munitions magnate Alvar Hanso whose financial backing made their dream of a multi-purpose social science research facility a reality. You and your partner are currently located in Station 3, or the Swan, and will be for the next 540 days. The Station 3 was originally constructed as a laboratory where scientists could work to understand the unique electromagnetic fluctuations emanating from this sector of the Island. Not long after the experiments began, however, there was an incident. And since that time the following protocol has been observed: every 108 minutes the button must be pushed. From the moment the alarm sounds you will have 4 minutes to enter the code into the microcomputer processor--
[the film skips]
Pierre Chang: --induction into the program. When the alarm sounds, either you or your partner must input the code. It is highly recommended that you and your partner take alternating shifts. In this manner you will stay as fresh and alert--
[the film skips]
Pierre Chang: --utmost importance that when the alarm sounds the code be entered correctly, and in a timely fashion. Do not attempt to use the computer--
[the film skips]
Pierre Chang: --for anything--
[the film skips]
Pierre Chang: --Congratulations, until your replacements arrive, the future of the project is in your hands. On behalf of the DeGroots, Alvar Hanso and all of us at the DHARMA Initiative, thank you. Namaste. And good luck.

Jack Shephard: It says "quarantine" on the inside of the hatch to keep you down here. To keep you scared. But you know what? We've been up there for over 40 days and no one's gotten sick. You think that this is the only part of it that's true?! Do you ever think that maybe they put you down here to push a button every 100 minutes just to see if you would? That all of this -- the computer, the button -- it's just a mind game?! An experiment?
Desmond Hume: Every -- single -- day. And for all our sakes, I hope it's not real. But the film says this is an electromagnetic station. And I don't know about you, brother, but every time I walk past that concrete wall out there, my fillings hurt.

John Locke: Why do you find it so hard to believe?!
Jack Shephard: Why do you find it so easy?!
John Locke: It's never been easy!

Everybody Hates Hugo [2.4] edit

Dream Jin: [to Hurley] Everything's going to change. Have a cluckity-cluck-cluck day, Hugo.

Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: I do exercise.
Carmen Reyes: Falling down is not exercise. The only time you move is to lift a drumstick from the bucket. Everyday it's the same thing, Hugo -- you work, TV, chicken. You have to change your life, Hugo. You think someone else will change it for you? Maybe if you pray everyday, Jesus Christ will come down from heaven, take 200 pounds and bring you a decent woman, and a new car. Yes, Jesus can bring you a new car.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Maybe I don't want to change. Maybe I like my life.
[The phone rings]
Carmen Reyes: Oh, that must be Jesus. [answers phone] Hola, momento. Yes, it is Jesus! He wants to know what color car you want!

Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Dude, look, I'd never lie.
Charlie Pace: Oh, and the time you told you were worth 150 million dollars?
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: It's 156 million.
Charlie Pace: I'm sorry, I must have confused it with the 900 trillion I am worth myself. And this baby's made of chocolate lollipops. So, if you'll excuse us, I'm going to flap my wings and fly off this Island!

Ana-Lucia Cortez: When I tell you to do something, you do it -- I say move, you move -- I say stop, you stop. I say jump, what do you say?
James "Sawyer" Ford: You first.

John Locke: Change is good, Hugo.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: You know, people say that, but it's not true, man. Trust me, I know. And guess who gets to be the bad guy who has to say: no you can't have peanut butter for the cute blonde and her poor Island baby. You know who? It's me. -- You know what? I'm not going to do it. Find someone else to deal with the chow, man.
John Locke: No, we all have our jobs, Hugo. My job is to convince people to push a button every 108 minutes without them knowing why -- or for what. Wanna trade?
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: I don't want to do this, man!
John Locke: Yeah, I've had a lot of jobs I didn't want to do. I still did them. I'm sorry, Hugo, you don't get to quit.

...And Found [2.5] edit

Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: So, Seoul. Is that in the good Korea or the bad Korea?
Sun Hwa-Kwon: The good one.

John Locke: I'm not lost anymore.
Sun Hwa-Kwon: How did you do that?
John Locke: Same way anything lost gets found -- I stopped looking.

Abandoned [2.6] edit

Libby Smith: How'd you get shot, anyway?
James "Sawyer" Ford: With a gun.

Claire Littleton: [to Locke] Charlie read me the riot act last night for waking him. And as mad as it made me -- turns out he was right. You know, it's like we're playing mum and dad to this baby. Yet, I don't remember marrying him.

Ana-Lucia Cortez: [to Eko] I liked you better when you weren't talking.
Michael Dawson: What happened to you people? You want us to take you back with us? Fine. But you want me to keep quiet then you need to tell me why I have to.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: They came the first night that we got here. They took three of us. Nothing happened for two weeks, then they came back. They took nine more. They're smart, and they're animals, and they could be anywhere at any time. Now we're moving through the jungle -- their jungle -- just so you can save your little hick friend over here. And if you think that one gun and one bullet is going to stop them -- think again. So shut your mouth and keep moving.
Michael Dawson: They took my son.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: They took a lot of things.

Charlie Pace: She's got a bit to learn about being a mum -- responsibility and all.
John Locke: Hmmm, now that's an interesting thing to say -- for a heroin addict.

Shannon Rutherford: I need you to believe in me.
Sayid Jarrah: I do believe in you.
Shannon Rutherford: You don't! No one does. They think that I'm some kind of joke. They think I'm worthless.
Sayid Jarrah: Shannon, you are not worthless.
Shannon Rutherford: You say that now, but you don't -- you're just going to leave me. I know as soon as we get out of here you're just going to leave me.

The Other 48 Days [2.7] edit

Ana-Lucia Cortez: What are you, a boy scout?
Goodwin Stanhope: Grown up version -- I'm in the Peace Corps.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: They still have that?
Goodwin Stanhope: I'm just happy somebody your age actually knows what it is.

Nathan: I don't remember seeing you on the plane, Ana Lucia.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: That's because you weren't on it.

Goodwin Stanhope: We should let him go. We're not savages.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: If I were a savage I would have cut off his finger already. That's tomorrow.

Ana-Lucia Cortez: You ran out of the jungle 10 minutes after the crash, you weren't wet. You were never even in the ocean. Where are they -- your friends? Nathan -- what did you-
Goodwin Stanhope: If you had cut off his finger and he still told you he was on the plane, I think maybe you would have started to believe you had the wrong guy.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: Did you kill him?
Goodwin Stanhope: Nathan was not a good person. That's why he wasn't on the list.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: What about the kids? Did you kill them, too?
Goodwin Stanhope: Children are fine. They're better off now.

Ana-Lucia Cortez: You've been waiting 40 days to talk?
Mr. Eko: You waited 40 days to cry.

Collision [2.8] edit

Sayid Jarrah: [about Ana] She has no plan. She only has her guilt and a gun.

Libby Smith: Ana, what are you doing? You can't live out here alone.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: I'm already alone.

Mr. Eko: What do you want?
Jack Shephard: Excuse me?
Mr. Eko: Peace? Revenge? Justice? And you are going out with all these guns?

Ana-Lucia Cortez: I'm a cop... I was a cop. One night my partner and I responded to a burglary call. We were the first ones there. I covered the front and he went around the back. I was there a minute and then this kid comes right through the front door -- I tell him to put his hands up -- and he's says I'm making a mistake -- that he's a student and he wants to show me his I.D. I believed him. I just -- I let him reach. All I remember was a pop. By the time I hit the ground I thought I was dead. I feel dead.

What Kate Did [2.9] edit

Mr. Eko: Hello. I have something I think you should see. If you don't mind, I will begin at the beginning. Long before Christ, the king of Judah was a man named Josiah.
John Locke: Boy, when you say beginning, you mean beginning.
Mr. Eko: At that time the temple where the people worshiped was in ruin. And so the people worshiped idols, false gods. And so the kingdom was in disarray. Josiah, since he was a good king, sent his secretary to the treasury and said: "We must rebuild the temple. Give all of the gold to the workers so that this will be done." But when the secretary returned, he had no gold. And when Josiah asked why this was, the secretary replied, "We found a book." Do you know this story?
John Locke: No, I'm afraid I don't.
Mr. Eko: What the secretary had found was an ancient book -- the Book of Law. You may know it as the Old Testament. And it was with that ancient book, not with the gold, that Josiah rebuilt the temple. On the other side of the island we found a place much like this, and in this place we found a book. [Eko unwraps the book and pushes it toward Locke] I believe what's inside there will be of great value to you.

Mr. Eko: Don't mistake coincidence for fate.

The 23rd Psalm [2.10] edit

Tough Moroccan: It is true what they say about you.
Mr. Eko: And what is that?
Tough Moroccan: You have no soul.

Mr. Eko: [to Yemi] Have you forgotten how you got that cross, brother -- the day they took me? Is what I did that day a sin? Or is it forgiven because it was you that was saved?

Mr. Eko: [to Yemi] Yemi, I understand that you live in a world where righteousness and evil seem very far apart, but that is not the real world.

Mr. Eko: I guess we are both sinners now.
Yemi: Perhaps we are but God will forgive me, Eko.

Charlie Pace: [to Eko] You going to beat me with your Jesus stick? I find it a little odd that your scripture stick has dried blood on it.

The Hunting Party [2.11] edit

Jack Shephard: [to Sawyer] Hey, what are you doing?
James "Sawyer" Ford: What's it look like? (arming self) I'm coming with ya.
Jack Shephard: You're still on antibiotics.
James "Sawyer" Ford: It's a good thing I'm traveling with my doctor then.

James "Sawyer" Ford: [to Locke] Oh, I don't know, Mr. Clean, I probably would have gone around Mt. Vesuvius.
John Locke: Why'd you choose that name?
James "Sawyer" Ford: Ain't it obvious? All you need is an ear-ring and a mop.

[The hunting party is talking to Tom Friendly.]
Tom Friendly: Just sit down, Jack. Nobody's going to hurt you. I come in peace.
John Locke: How do you know our names?
[Tom smiles]
Jack Shephard: You took Walt.
Tom Friendly: Walt's fine. He's a very special boy.
Jack Shephard: Look, you said you wanted to talk. Talk.
Tom Friendly: Let me ask you something. How long you been here on the island?
Jack Shephard: 50 days.
Tom Friendly: Oooo, 50 days. That's what, almost 2 whole months, huh? Tell me, you go over a man's house for the first time, do you take off your shoes? Do you put your feet up on his coffee table? Do you walk in the kitchen, eat food that doesn't belong to you? [to Locke] Open the door to rooms you got no business opening? [to all] You know, somebody a whole lot smarter than anybody here once said: "Since the dawn of our species man's been blessed with curiosity." You know the other one about curiosity, don't you, Jack? This is not your island. This is our island. And the only reason you're living on it...is 'cause we let you live on it.
Jack Shephard: [smiling] I don't believe you.
Tom Friendly: You don't believe what?
Jack Shephard: I think you've got one guy up there with a gun. I think there's more of us than there are of you. I think if you had any real strength, you wouldn't have had to send a spy -- Ethan.
Tom Friendly: That's an interesting theory. [raising his arms and yelling] Light 'em up!
[torches all around the survivors are lit]
Tom Friendly: We've got a misunderstanding, Jack -- your people, my people. So listen carefully. Right here, there's a line. You cross that line, we go from misunderstanding to something else. Now, give me your weapons, turn around, go home.
Jack Shephard: No.
John Locke: Jack, maybe...
Jack Shephard: No!
Tom Friendly: I hoped it wouldn't come to this. [yelling] Bring her out, Alex!
[A figure with a bag over their head is pushed out]
Tom Friendly: She was following you. Like I said -- curiosity.
[Tom pulls the bag off the figure's head, revealing Kate. He puts a gun to her neck. Sawyer moves toward them]
Tom Friendly: [to Sawyer] Don't. [to Jack] Jack, the decision you gotta make right now is this -- can you live with the fact that I shot this woman right in front of you when you could have saved her life by giving up and going home? Or are you going to give me your guns, turn around and walk away. It's your call, Jack.

Fire + Water [2.12] edit

John Locke: Are you using again?
Charlie Pace: Kate sees a horse -- nothing. Pretty much everybody's seen Walt wandering around the jungle. But when it's Charlie it must be the bloody drugs, right?

Ana-Lucia Cortez: [about Kate] You hittin' that?
Jack Shephard: What?
Ana-Lucia Cortez: Plane crash -- you both survive -- nice beach -- she's hot, you're hot. It's what people do.
Jack Shephard: I'm not hittin' that.

Claire Littleton: Charlie came by my tent before and told me Aaron had to be baptized -- he was in danger.
John Locke: My understanding is that baptism is about making sure that children get into heaven -- should anything happen. Call it spiritual insurance. There isn't any danger, Claire. Charlie is just...[Locke looks in pack and sees the Virgin Mary statues]...Charlie just feels like he has to save the baby because he can't save himself.

Charlie Pace: Who the hell are you, John?! Aaron's not your responsibility! Where were you when he was born?! Where were you when he was taken?! You're not his father! You're not his family!
John Locke: Neither are you, Charlie.

Mr Eko: Do you know what baptism is?
Claire Littleton: It's what gets you into heaven.
Mr Eko: It is said that when John the Baptist baptized Jesus the skies opened up and a dove flew down from the sky. This told John something -- that he had cleansed this man of all his sins. That he had freed him. Heaven came much later.

The Long Con [2.13] edit

James "Sawyer" Ford: [to Charlie] Man, I thought these people hated me, but I've got to hand it to you -- stealing a baby, trying to drown it -- now, that's a new low. You even made Locke take a swing at you. Hell, that's like getting Gandhi to beat his kids.

Cassidy Phillips: I want you to show me what you do. Show me what you do -- what you really do.
James "Sawyer" Ford: And what do I do?
Cassidy Phillips: Show me how to con people, Sawyer.

James "Sawyer" Ford: You versus Sun -- hot oil death match -- my money's on you, Sheena.
Kate Austen: Thanks for your vote of confidence.

Gordy: [to Sawyer] You know, a tiger doesn't change his stripes, James. You're a con man, just like me.

James "Sawyer" Ford: How about you listen up because I'm only going to say this once. You took my stuff. While I was off trying to get us help -- get us rescued -- you found my stash and you took it, divvied it up -- my shaving cream, my batteries, even my beer. And then something else happened, you decided these two boys here were going to tell you what to do and when to do it. Well, I'm done taking orders. And I don't want my stuff back. The shaving cream don't matter. Batteries don't matter. The only thing that matters now are guns. And if you want one you're going to have to come to me to get it! [to Sayid] Oh, you want to torture me, don't you? Show everybody how civilized you are. Go ahead, but I'll die before I give them back. And then you'll really be screwed, won't you? New sheriff in town, boys! You all best get used to it.

One of Them [2.14] edit

Buccelli: [to Sayid] Your English is good, Abdul, but you're lying. And that ain't so good. [knocks Sayid out]

Danielle Rousseau: [to Sayid about Henry/Ben] You talk to him, Sayid. As I recall that is what you do. But know this -- he will lie -- a long time. He will lie.

Sayid Jarrah: I was 23 years old when the Americans came to my country. I was a good man. I was a soldier. And when they left, I was something different. For the next 6 years I did things I wish I could erase from my memory -- things which I never thought myself to be capable of. But I did come to learn this -- there was a part of me which was always capable. You want to know who I am? My name is Sayid Jarrah, and I am a torturer.

Sayid Jarrah: You would remember! You would remember how deep! You would remember every shovelful, every moment! You would remember what it felt like to place her body inside. You would remember if you buried the woman you loved! You would remember -- if it were true!
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: Did you -- did you lose someone? Did you lose someone here on the Island? Did you lose someone, too? What happened to her?
Sayid Jarrah: It was an accident. It was an accident. The woman responsible thought she was someone else -- someone coming to hurt her -- someone like you!

Sayid Jarrah: There is a man down in the Hatch. A stranger captured by Rousseau. I beat him. I beat him badly.
Charlie Pace: Why are you telling me this, Sayid?
Sayid Jarrah: Jack asked me how I knew -- knew for sure that this man was lying. How I knew for sure that he was one of them -- one of the Others. I know because I feel no guilt for what I did to him. -- But there is no way I can ever explain that to Jack, or even Locke, because both of them have forgotten.
Charlie Pace: Forgotten? What?
Sayid Jarrah: That you were strung up by your neck and left for dead. That Claire was taken and kept for days during which god only know what happened to her. That these people -- these Others -- are merciless, and can take any one of us whenever they choose. So tell me, Charlie, have you forgotten?

Maternity Leave [2.15] edit

Jack Shephard: [to Locke] Well, John, let me ask you this: we don't have a long term plan for the button, but we keep pushing it, don't we? Look, until we know who he is - whether or not he's telling the truth - we have to keep doing what we're doing. If you've got a better idea, let's hear it.
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: [faintly, from his cell] Why don't you let me go?

Ethan Rom: Claire, can I tell you a secret?
Claire Littleton: Yeah.
Ethan Rom: I'm going to miss you. I wish -- I wish you didn't have to go.
Claire Littleton: Maybe I don't have to go?
Ethan Rom: We've been through this, Claire. There's not enough vaccine for you and the baby.
Claire Littleton: Well, I'm not, I'm not sick.
Ethan Rom: Thank God. And once you've delivered you can go back to your friends and hopefully you'll stay that way.
Claire Littleton: What if I want to see the baby?
Ethan Rom: Hey, nobody's going to take him from you unless that's what you want. You have a choice. We're good people, Claire. We're a good family. But if you're going to trust us with your child I want you to be sure.

Jack Shephard: [to Eko] Just be careful what you say to him. He's smart and curious. Just give us a shout when you're done.
John Locke: If the alarm goes off, don't tell him what it's for.
Mr. Eko: [beat] What is it for?

Mr. Eko: You are a prisoner because they are being careful. They are being careful because they believe you are lying.
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: Why would I lie? They think I'm one of these others -- other what?
Mr. Eko: Please, stop talking, Henry. The first night I spent on this island I was dragged into the jungle by 2 men. They never spoke a word to me, nor I to them. I killed these men -- smashed in their head with a stone, felt their blood on my arms. I need you to know how sorry I am for this. I need you to know that I am back on the righteous path now. And that I regret my actions. I ask you for your forgiveness.
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: Why are you telling me this?
Mr. Eko: Because I needed to tell someone.

Ben Linus/Henry Gale: Is that true -- what you said about Hemingway?
John Locke: You have good ears.
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: You have thin doors.
John Locke: You read Hemingway?
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: Sure, guy ran with the bulls, fought in the Spanish Civil War, stuff I can wrap my brain around. This is I can't get through 5 pages of [indicating the Dostoevsky novel].
John Locke: Well, Dostoevsky had his virtues, too. He was a genius, for one. Bullfighting isn't everything.
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: So, which one are you?
John Locke: I'm sorry?
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: Are you the genius, or are you the guy who always feels like he's living in the shadow of a genius?

The Whole Truth [2.16] edit

[Ana-Lucia is questioning Henry, though the cell is silent.]
Jack Shephard: How do we know he hasn't snapped her neck?
John Locke: How do we know she hasn't snapped his?

Sayid Jarrah: Do Jack and Locke know about this?
Ana-Lucia Cortez: Jack and Locke are a little too busy worrying about Locke and Jack.

Ana-Lucia Cortez: People don't like me. I tried to get them to most of my life. I guess I just gave up a while back. I mean, I am what I am. But you -- you've got a good reason to hate me. I'm sorry. I'm sorry for what I did.

Ben Linus/Henry Gale: [reading] "Men reject their prophets and slay them, but they love their martyrs and honor those whom they have slain". So what's the difference between a martyr and a prophet?
Jack Shephard: Either way, it sounds like you end up dead.
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: That's the spirit.

Ben Linus/Henry Gale: Wow, you guys have some real trust issues, don't you? Guess it makes sense she didn't tell you. I mean, with the two of you fighting all the time. Of course, if I was one of them -- these people that you seem to think are your enemies -- what would I do? Well, there'd be no balloon, so I'd draw a map to a real secluded place like a cave or some underbrush -- good place for a trap -- an ambush. And when your friends got there a bunch of my people would be waiting for them. Then they'd use them to trade for me. I guess it's a good thing I'm not one of them, huh? You guys got any milk?

Lockdown [2.17] edit

Helen Norwood: [to Locke at his father's funeral] Hey, maybe he left you his kidney?

Anthony Cooper: I killed myself off because there are two men out there who were going to beat me to it.
John Locke: What'd you do, steal their livers?

Ben Linus/Henry Gale: [to Locke] My name is Henry Gale. I'm from Minnesota. And I crashed on this island just like you.

James "Sawyer" Ford: Wanna play real stakes? Name 'em!
Jack Shephard: It's a pile of fruit, man.
James "Sawyer" Ford: And I want it back.
Kate Austen: Should I go get a ruler?

Sayid Jarrah [to 'Henry Gale']: We did find your ballon, Henry Gale. Exactly as you described it. We also found the grave you described. Your wife's grave. The grave you said you dug with you own bare hands. It was all there. Your whole story. Your alibi. It was all true. But still I did not believe it to be true. So I dug up that grave... And found not a woman inside but there was a man, a man named Henry Gale.

Dave [2.18] edit

Libby Smith: Okay, hey, hey, guys, guys, how about no one's in charge, okay? I'm sure everyone can manage to just take what they need.
James "Sawyer" Ford: Great plan, Moonbeam. And after that we can sing "Kumbaya" and do trust falls.

Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Did either of you see a guy run through here -- in a bathrobe, with a coconut?
Charlie Pace: No. Saw a polar bear on roller blades with a mango.

Libby Smith: Where are you going?
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Back to the caves. No one lives there anymore, so I won't bother anybody. I'm just going to live alone and be one of those guys -- you know, the crazy guys -- with a big beard and no clothes who's naked and throws doodie at people.

John Locke: You and your people have been here for God knows how long, and you got caught in a net--
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: God doesn't know.
John Locke: Excuse me?
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: God doesn't know how long we've been here, John. He can't see this island any better than the rest of the world can. May I ask you a question? What possible reason could I have for putting myself through all this?
John Locke: Maybe your people were looking for this place.
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: This place? This place is a joke, John.
John Locke: What are you talking about?
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: I crawled through your vents and I stood at your computer as the alarm beeped. And you know what happened? The timer went all the way down to zero, and then some funny red pictures flipped up in its place. They looked like hieroglyphics, but I'm no expert. And then things got real interesting. There was a loud clunking and a hum like a magnet -- a big magnet. It was really very frightening. And you know what happened next? Nothing happened, John. Nothing happened at all. Your timer just flipped back to 108. I never entered the numbers. I never pressed the button.
John Locke: You're lying.
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: No, I'm done lying.

Libby Smith: I buried a lot of people, Hurley. So don't tell me that that wasn't real. And don't tell me you made me up. It's insulting.

S.O.S. [2.19] edit

Bernard Nadler: Aren't you remotely curious as to where all this came from? You're acting like we just got back from the supermarket.
Rose Henderson Nadler: Well, I guess I was raised never to question my blessings.
Bernard Nadler: I was raised to question piles of food with weird labels that just fall out of the sky, Rose.

James "Sawyer" Ford: [seeing Jack approach] Oh happy day, here comes Dr. Giggles.

[Bernard is proposing to Rose with violins playing]
Bernard Nadler: Rose, I've been a bachelor for 56 years, and then I met you. And we just fell into this rhythm like we had known each other forever. I always dreamed of finding somebody like you, but I'd given up hope that I ever would.
Rose Henderson Nadler: Bernard...
Bernard Nadler: I know, I know. It's crazy. We just met 5 months ago. But 5 months is long enough because I knew after 5 minutes. [he opens an ring box] Rose, I love you. Will you marry me?
Rose Henderson Nadler: Bernard, I'm dying. I'm sick, and I'm dying.
Bernard Nadler: [to the violinists] Would you excuse us for a minute, please?
[Bernard sits down]
Rose Henderson Nadler: I've been in remission for the last couple of years. But now it's back and this time it's not going away. My doctor says I have about a year -- maybe a little longer.
Bernard Nadler: [beat] You haven't answered my question.

Bernard Nadler: [to Eko] I think I liked you better when you just hit people with your stick.

Two For the Road [2.20] edit

Ben Linus/Henry Gale: [to Ana] You killed two of us -- good people who were leaving you alone. You're the killer, Ana Lucia.

Ben Linus/Henry Gale: [to Locke] If you've come to apologize, I forgive for hitting me with your crutch. I'm so glad my head didn't break it.

Christian Shephard: [to Ana] I'm here because I can't apologize to my son. He tried to help me, so I thanked him by cutting him off. I thanked him by hating him. You came here for the same reason I did, kiddo. You ran away.

Ben Linus/Henry Gale: He kept saying you were misunderstood.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: What are you talking about?
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: Goodwin. Yes, he told us all about you, Ana -- how he thought you were worthy, and that he could change you. But he was wrong. And it cost him his life.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: He was going to kill me.
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: Was he?
Ana-Lucia Cortez: Are you done?
Ben Linus/Henry Gale: Yes, Ana, I'm done.

Ana-Lucia Cortez: We caught one of them -- the Others. He's locked up in there.
Michael Dawson: How long has he...?
Ana-Lucia Cortez: Over a week.
Michael Dawson: And you're what -- taking care of him?
Ana-Lucia Cortez: He tried to kill me today, so I wanted him dead. I couldn't do it. I couldn't even kill him. I looked at him and he -- I can't do this anymore.
Michael Dawson: Then let me do it. They're animals. I've seen these people and they are animals. They took my son -- right out of my hands -- they took my son and -- I'll do it. Give me the gun. I'll kill him. Because that's what they do. [Ana gives him the gun] What's the combination?
Ana-Lucia Cortez: 18 right, 1 left, 31 right.
[Michael stares at the gun for a long time]
Michael Dawson: I'm sorry.
Ana-Lucia Cortez: For what?
[Michael turns and suddenly shoots Ana-Lucia in the stomach]

? [2.21] edit

Mr. Eko: You are the one that found this plane, yes?
John Locke: Yeah. [looking up] It was up there.
Mr. Eko: And what made it fall?
John Locke: Boone. Boone made it fall. Then he died. A sacrifice that the Island demanded.

Richard Malkin: I know why you're here, friend. But you can save yourself the trouble. What happened here was not a miracle.
Mr. Eko: The doctor that treated your daughter seems to feel differently.
Richard Malkin: Treated her? He tried to cut her open. He's just trying to cover up his own negligence. He tell you the whole story -- how she supposedly drowned? She fell into a mountain river, her body shut down; she went into hypothermia which made her appear dead.
Mr. Eko: And why is your wife so convinced otherwise?
Richard Malkin: Because she's a zealot. All of this -- everything she's doing -- is to spite me.
Mr. Eko: Why would she spite you?
Richard Malkin: Because she knows I'm a fraud. Because I make my living as a psychic. You see, that's what I do. I gather intelligence on people and I exploit it. Everyday I meet people looking for a miracle, desperate to find one. But there are none to be had. Not in this world, anyway.

Mr. Eko: We are being tested.
John Locke: Tested?
Mr. Eko: The reason to do it -- push the button -- is not because we are told to do so in a film.
John Locke: Oh -- well, then what is the reason, Mr. Eko?
Mr. Eko: We do it because we believe we are meant to. Isn't that the reason you pushed it, John?
John Locke: I was never meant to do anything! Every single second of my pathetic little life is as useless as that button! You think it's important? You think it's necessary? It's nothing. It's nothing. It's meaningless. And who are you to tell me that it's not?

Mr. Eko: This cross was worn by my brother, Yemi. Yemi was a great man, a priest, a man of God. And because I betrayed him he was shot and died. He was placed on a plane which took off from an airstrip in Nigeria half a world from here. Then, the plane that I was on crashed on this island. And somehow, here, I found my brother again. I found him in the same plane that took off from Nigeria. In the same plane that lies above us now -- that has concealed this place. And I took this cross from around Yemi's neck and put it back on mine, just as it was on the day I first took another man's life. So let me ask you -- how can you say this is meaningless? I believe the work being done in the Hatch is more important than anything. If you will not continue to push the button, John, I will.

Three Minutes [2.22] edit

Michael Dawson: I hear you're a priest.
Mr. Eko: Yes.
Michael Dawson: I guess you believe in hell, then.
Mr. Eko: For a brief time I served in a small parish in England. Every Sunday after Mass, I would see a young boy waiting in the back of the church. And then one day, the boy confessed to me that he had beaten his dog to death with a shovel. He said that the dog had bitten his baby sister on the cheek; and he needed to protect her. And he wanted to know whether he would go to hell for this. I told him that God would understand -- that he would be forgiven, as long as he was sorry. But the boy did not care about forgiveness. He was only afraid that if he did go to hell -- that dog would be there waiting for him.

Tom Friendly: [to Michael] Hey there, Michael. [Michael spits in his face] Not going to hold that against you. Fair's fair. I took your boy. But don't do that again, okay?

Charlie Pace: [to Eko] So, you wake up in the middle of the night; you grab your Jesus stick; you race off into the jungle. You don't call; you don't write?

Danny Pickett: [to Michael] See you in the funny pages.

Ms. Beatrice Klugh: [to Michael] For someone who wants his son back so badly, you don't seem to know much about him, Michael.

Live Together, Die Alone Part I [2.23] edit

Jack Shephard: So, before you ran off, I guess you just forgot to mention that you still have a sailboat. Why'd you come back?
Desmond Hume: [laughing] Do you think I did it on purpose? I was sailing for two and half weeks, bearing due West and making 9 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 you know why? Because this, is it. This is all there is left. This ocean and this place here. We are stuck in a bloody snowglobe! There's no outside world! There's no escape! So, just go away, huh. Let me drink.
[Jack gets up to leave]
Desmond Hume: Are you still pushing it?
Jack Shephard: Yeah, we're still pushing it.

Master Sergeant: Set of keys; one pocket watch, gold plated; one photograph; one book, Our Mutual Friend. Why didn't you bring that inside?
Desmond Hume: 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 will 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. [He stamps "discharged" on some papers] Lance Corporal Desmond David Hume your sentence is hereby complete and you are now and forever dishonorably discharged from the Royal Scotts Regiment of Her Majesty's Armed Forces. Long live the queen. Enjoy your sodding book.

Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Did that bird just say my name?
James "Sawyer" Ford: Yeah, it did. Right before it crapped gold.

Desmond Hume: [after seeing Kelvin enter the numbers] What was all that about, then?
Kelvin Inman: Just saving the world.

Mr. Eko: Charlie, do you know how they got the Hatch door open?
Charlie Pace: No, but if you hum it, I could probably play it.

Live Together, Die Alone Part II [2.24] edit

Desmond Hume: Well, if you don't want me to go crazy, next time let me go out.
Kelvin Inman: Well, you want to go out there with the quarantine and the hostiles?
Desmond Hume: I haven't been outside for 2 bloody years! Yes, I want to go! I was in the army for God's sake!
Kelvin Inman: Oh, right, Her Majesty's Army, correct? 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 Hume: Why did you leave your army, Kelvin, huh?
Kelvin Inman: [beat] Because men followed my orders. [sarcastically] Ah, but then thank God I joined the DHARMA Initiative. Namaste, thank you, and good luck.

Desmond Hume: Can I ask you a question, brother?
John Locke: Absolutely.
Desmond Hume: Is the reason you're letting that clock there run all the way down to the very last tick—is it because you need to look down the barrel of a gun to find out what you really believe, John?
John Locke: I looked down the barrel of the gun and I believed. I thought it was my destiny to get into this place. And someone died—a kid. Because he was stupid enough to believe that I knew what I was talking about. And the night that he died for nothing, I was sitting right up there, all alone, beating my hand bloody against that stupid door—screaming to the heavens asking what I should do. And then a light went on. I thought it was a sign. But it wasn't a sign. Probably just you going to the bathroom.

Desmond Hume: [to Locke] 3 days before you came down here, before we met, I heard a banging on the Hatch door, shouting. But it was you, John, wasn't it? You said there isn't any purpose—there's no such thing as fate. But you saved my life, brother, so that I could save yours.

Michael Dawson: Who are you people?
Ben Linus/Henry Gale:We're the good guys, Michael.
