LA X Part I [6.01] edit

Sayid Jarrah: [dying] I've tortured more people than I can remember. I murdered. Wherever I'm going...it can't be very pleasant.

Boone Carlyle: You're not pulling my leg, are ya?
John Locke: Why would I pull your leg?
Boone Carlyle: [laughing] This thing goes down, I'm sticking with you.

The Man in Black: [To Ben, after transforming back from the Smoke Monster] I'm sorry you had to see me like that.

LA X Part II [6.02] edit

Kate Austen: I need to go to the bathroom.
Edward Mars: Hold it.
Kate Austen: I can't hold it.
Edward Mars: Sure you can, kiddo. I believe in you.

Ben Linus: What are you?
The Man in Black: Wh.. I'm not a what Ben, I'm a who.
Ben Linus: You're the monster.
The Man in Black: Let's not resort to name calling.
Ben Linus: You used me... you couldn't kill him yourself, so you made me do it.
The Man in Black: I didn't make you do anything. You should know, he was very confused when you killed him.
Ben Linus: I seriously doubt that Jacob was ever confused.
The Man in Black: I'm not talking about Jacob. I'm talking about John Locke. Do you wanna know what he was thinking while you, choked the life outta him Benjamin? What the last thought that ran through his head was? [imitating Locke] "I don't understand". [smiles] Isn't that just the saddest thing you ever heard? But it's fitting in a way, because when John first came to the Island, he was a very sad man. A victim, shouting at the world for being told what he couldn't do, even though they were right. He was weak, and pathetic, and irreparably broken. But, despite all that, there was something admirable about him. He was the only one of them that didn't wanna leave. The only one, who realized how pitiful the life he'd left behind actually was.
Ben Linus: What do you want?
The Man in Black: Well that's the great irony here Ben because, I want the one thing that John Locke didn't. I want to go home.

What Kate Does [6.03] edit

James "Sawyer" Ford: [about Sayid's revival] Of course he's fine.
Kate Austen: What's that mean?
James "Sawyer" Ford: He's an Iraqi torturer who shoots kids. He definitely deserves another go around.

Miles Straume: Uh, as you can see, Hugo here has assumed the leadership position so that's...pretty great.

Miles Straume: So nothing? there wasn't anything? No white light? Angels singing? No dead relatives?
Sayid Jarrah: I remember being shot.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: You're not a zombie, right?
Sayid Jarrah: No. I'm not a zombie.

Kate Austen: Couple days ago, you asked me why I came back to the island... I need to find Claire. I thought, maybe if I could catch up to you, you could help me - and then, maybe if we could find her and bring her back to Aaron then maybe all of this wouldn't have been for nothing.

James "Sawyer" Ford: It's not your fault she's dead... It's mine. She was sittin' right there, right where you are now, tryin' to leave this place - and I convinced her to stay. I made her stay on this island because I didn't want to be alone. You understand that right? ... But, uh... But I think some of us are meant to be alone. [Sawyer glances down at ring he's holding] I was gonna ask her to marry me.

The Subsitute [6.04] edit

James "Sawyer" Ford: What are you?
The Man in Black: What I am is trapped. And I've been trapped for so long that I don't even remember what it feels like to be free. Maybe you can understand that. But before I was trapped, I was a man, James. Just like you.
James "Sawyer" Ford: I'm havin' a hard time believin' that...
The Man in Black: You can believe whatever you want, that's the truth. I know what it's like to feel joy... to feel pain, anger, fear... to experience betrayal. I know what it's like to lose someone you love. So if you wanna shoot me, shoot me. But you're so close, James. It would be such a shame to turn back now.

[at Locke's funeral]
Ben Linus: John Locke was a...a believer, he was a man of faith, he was... a much better man than I will ever be. And I'm very sorry I murdered him.
Frank Lapidus: [under his breath] Weirdest damn funeral I've ever been to.

James "Sawyer" Ford: Why would he write my name on this wall? I never even met the guy.
The Man in Black: Oh no, I'm sure you did meet Jacob. At some point in your life, James, probably when you were young and miserable and vulnerable. He came to you, he manipulated you, pulled your strings like you were a puppet. And as a result, choices you thought were made, were never really choices at all. He was pushing you, James. Pushing you... to the Island.

Lighthouse [6.05] edit

Jack Shephard: I'm not going anywhere, Hurley.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Yeah, I told him you'd say that. That's why he told me to tell you...You have what it takes, Jack.
Jack Shephard: [Jack stands, shocked] What did you say?
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: I said "you have what it takes." He said you'd know what it means.
Jack Shephard: And Jacob he's at this Lighthouse?
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Yeah, I think?
Jack Shephard: Ok. Well, let's go see Jacob.

Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: This is cool, dude. Very old school.
Jack Shephard: What?
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: You know, you and me trekking through the jungle, on our way to do something that we don't quite understand. Good times.

Jacob: Jack is here because he has to do something. He can't be told what that is, he's got to find it himself. Sometimes you can just hop in the back of someone's cab and tell them what they are supposed to do. Other times you have to let them look at the ocean for a while.

The Man In Black: [to Jin and Claire] I hope I'm not interrupting anything?
Jin Soo-Kwon: John?
Claire Littleton: That's not John, silly. That's my friend.
[The Man in Black smiles]

Sundown [6.06] edit

The Man in Black: Dogen...the man who sent you out here, knew that you had no chance of killing me, and he believed that I would kill you if you tried. And this wasn't the first time that he tried to get someone else to do it for him was it?
Sayid Jarrah: No.
The Man in Black: Then shame on you, for being talked into it so easily.

Martin Keamy: Martin Keamy.
Sayid Jarrah: Sayid Jarrah. But you already know that.
Martin Keamy: Ah, that I do. Yeah. Alright...so, Sayid... how's your brother doin'? [to one of his henchmen] His brother got mugged right out front of his own store. It's just...terrible. But at least this way, you know, he's still around to take care of his family. You do want to take care of his family, don't you? Yes? You know, I can see that you're a very direct guy Sayid, so I'm just gonna get to the point. Your brother, he borrowed money from me. And just like anybody who borrows money or has a loan to pay, he has to make payments.
Sayid Jarrah: My brother told me he's paid you everything he owes. And that you still want more.
Martin Keamy: Sayid, that's a lie. Your brother does owe me, and somebody is gonna pay me that money.
Sayid Jarrah: Did you put my brother in the hospital?
Martin Keamy: What, you think it was me? I didn't do that. You know, it's a dangerous world, Sayid. And you know that because you're from Iraq. You never know when somebody's just gonna sneak up--
[Sayid suddenly attacks Keamy's henchmen]

Dogen: I was a business man once. In Osaka. I worked at a bank. I was good at my job. Very successful. And one Friday, I was promoted. My associates took me out to celebrate. I had too much to drink. Every Friday I picked my son up from baseball. He was twelve. The accident was very bad. I survived. But my son...And then, in the hospital, a man came to me. A man I had never met. And he told me that he could save my son's life, but I would have to come here... to this island... where I would have a new job. And I could never see my boy again.
Sayid Jarrah: Who was this man?
Dogen: His name was Jacob.
Sayid Jarrah: Jacob drives a hard bargain.

Ben Linus: Sayid? Come on. I know a way out of here. There's still time.
Sayid Jarrah: [smiling] Not for me.

Dr. Linus [6.07] edit

Ilana Verdansky: This is what's left of Jacob's body. So tell me, Miles, how did he die?
Miles Straume: Linus killed him.
Ilana Verdansky: What?
Ben Linus: That's not true.
Ilana Verdansky: Are you sure?
Miles Straume: Well, he was standing over Jacob's dead body with a bloody dagger, so yeah, I'm pretty sure.

Roger Linus: This isn't the life I wanted for you, Ben. I wanted so much more.
Ben Linus: I know.
Roger Linus: That's why I signed up for that damn Dharma Initiative, and took you to the island, and they were decent people. Smarter than I'll ever be. Imagine how different our lives would've been If we'd stayed.
Ben Linus: Yes, we'd have both lived happily ever after.
Roger Linus: No, I'm serious, Ben. Who knows what you would've become.

Miles Straume: Why would I need your money when there are a couple of jabonies under there named Nikki and Paulo who got buried alive with $8 million in diamonds on top of them?
Ben Linus: I can't believe you're just gonna stand by and watch this happen. Ilana's gonna murder me for killing Jacob; A man who didn't even care about being killed!
Miles Straume: No, he cared.
Ben Linus: Excuse me?
Miles Straume: Right up until the second the knife went through his heart, he was hoping he was wrong about you. I guess he wasn't.

Richard Alpert: [to Jack] I devoted my life - longer than you can possibly imagine - in service of a man who told me that everything was happening for a reason, that he had a plan - a plan that I was a part of - and when the time was right that he'd share it with me. And now that man's gone. So why do I want to die? Because I just found out my entire life had no purpose.

Ilana Verdansky: What are you waiting for?
Ben Linus: I want to explain.
Ilana Verdansky: Explain what?
Ben Linus: I want to explain that I know what you're feeling.
Ilana Verdansky: You have no idea what I'm feeling.
Ben Linus: I watched my daughter, Alex, die in front of me. And it was my fault. I had a chance to save her, but I chose the island. Over her! All in the name of Jacob. I sacrificed everything for him. And he didn't even care. Yeah, I stabbed him. I was so angry. Confused. I-I was terrified that I was about to lose the only thing that had ever mattered to me: my power! But the thing that really mattered...was already gone. I'm sorry that I killed Jacob. I am. And I do not expect you to forgive me, because...I can never forgive myself.
Ilana Verdansky: Then what do you want?
Ben Linus: Just let me leave!
Ilana Verdansky: Where will you go?
Ben Linus: To Locke.
Ilana Verdansky: Why?
Ben Linus: [tearfully] Because he's the only one that'll have me!
Ilana Verdansky: I'll have you.

Recon [6.08] edit

The Man in Black: I have to take responsibility for Claire's behaviour. I was the one who told her the Others had her baby.
Kate Austen: Why would you tell her that?
The Man in Black: Have you ever had an enemy? Someone that you needed to hate? Very powerful, isn't it? Claire was devastated without Aaron. She needed something to... something to keep her going. So, I gave her something to hate. And then... when you told her the truth... all those feelings, all that anger that she'd been holding on to for so long... it had to go somewhere.
Kate Austen: Very insighful... coming from a dead man.
The Man in Black: Well, nobody's perfect. I'm sorry that this happened. And I'm sure if you give her time, everything will be alright. I promised before that I would keep everyone safe. And that means you too, Kate.

The Man in Black: You referred to me as a dead man. I am not a dead man. I know what you're feeling, Kate. I know what you're going through.
Kate Austen: And how do you know that?
The Man in Black: Because... my mother was crazy. Long time ago, before I... looked like this... I had a mother, just like everyone. She was a very disturbed woman. And, as a result of that, I had some growing pains. Problems that I'm still trying to work my way through. Problems that could have been avoided had things been different.
Kate Austen: Why are you telling me this?
The Man in Black: Because now Aaron has a crazy mother too.

Charles Widmore: We didn't murder those people. But I don't expect you to believe that.
James "Sawyer" Ford: Good, I don't.

Ab Aeterno [6.09] edit

The Man in Black: Got to get you on your feet. Gonna need your strength if we're going to escape.
Richard Alpert: Escape?
The Man in Black: That's right. I'm afraid there's only one way to escape from Hell. You're going to have to kill the Devil.

Richard Alpert: I am in Hell. I know that I am in Hell.
Jacob: You really think you're dead?
Richard Alpert: Where else would I be?

Jacob: Think of this wine as what you keep calling hell. There's many other names for it too: malevolence, evil, darkness. And here it is, swirling around in the bottle, unable to get out because if it did, it would spread. The cork [he corks the bottle] is this island...and it's the only thing keeping the darkness where it belongs. That man who sent you to kill me believes that everyone is corruptible because it's in their very nature to sin. I bring people here to prove him wrong. And when they get here, their past doesn't matter.
Richard Alpert: Before you brought my ship, there were others?
Jacob: Yes, many.
Richard Alpert: What happened to them?
Jacob: They're all dead.
Richard Alpert: But if you brought them here, why didn't you help them?
Jacob: Because I wanted them to help themselves. To know the difference between right and wrong without me having to tell them. It's all meaningless if I have to force them to do anything. Why should I have to step in?
Richard Alpert: If you don't, he will.

Richard Alpert: I want my wife back.
Jacob: Can't do that.
Richard Alpert: Can you absolve me of my sins so I don't go to Hell?
Jacob: I can't do that either.
Richard Alpert: I never want to die. I want to live forever.
Jacob: Now that...[touches Richard's shoulder]...I can do.

Jacob: I see you got my present.
The Man in Black: Don't gloat, Jacob. It doesn't become you.
Jacob: So you tried to kill me?
The Man in Black: You expect an apology?
Jacob: No. I guess I'm just wondering why you did it.
The Man in Black: Because I want to leave. Just let me leave, Jacob.
Jacob: As long as I'm alive, you're not going anywhere.
The Man in Black: Well then, now you know why I want to kill you. And I will kill you, Jacob.
Jacob: Even if you do so, somebody else will take my place.
The Man in Black: Then I'll kill them too.

The Package [6.10] edit

Sayid Jarrah: I don't feel anything.
The Man in Black: Excuse me?
Sayid Jarrah: Anger. Happiness. Pain. I don't feel it anymore.
The Man in Black: Maybe that's best, Sayid. It'll help you get through what's coming.

James "Sawyer" Ford: What do you need a boat for? Can't you just turn into smoke and fly your ass over the water?
The Man in Black: Do you think if I could do that I would still be on this island?
James "Sawyer" Ford: No, 'cause that would be ridiculous...

Martin Keamy: [watching Sun and Jin converse in Korean] Stop it. I feel like I'm in a damn Godzilla movie.

Charles Widmore: Do you know who I am?
The Man in Black: Charles Widmore. Do you know who I am?
Charles Widmore: Obviously you're not John Locke. Everything else I know is a combination of myth, ghost stories, and jungle noises in the night.
The Man in Black: I think you know more than that judging by these pylons.
Charles Widmore: Why did you come here?
The Man in Black: You took one of my people, Jin Kwon.
Charles Widmore: I have no idea what you're talking about.
The Man in Black: [beat] A wise man once said that war was coming to this Island, I think it just got here.

Martin Keamy: I got this. You go get the Arab guy.
Omar: Hey...I'm an Arab.
Martin Keamy: Just go pick him up
[Omar leaves and Keamy starts to tend to Jin's wound while tying him up]
Martin Keamy: Sorry about that. Omar is loyal but he lacks attention to detail. You don't really understand a word I'm saying to you right now, do you? Nothing? Right. Just hold still okay. I'm gonna strap you in here just in case you figure out what's about to happen to you, I can't have you freaking out. I don't think you realise how unhappy Mr. Paik was when he found out that you were doing his little girl. That other twenty five that you were supposed to deliver, that was my fee for popping you. From what I hear, now anyone who works for Paik knows the cardinal rule - hands off the boss's daughter. But you, you couldn't resist her, could you? The heart wants what the heart wants.
Jin Soo-Kwon: Thank you.
Martin Keamy: I'm sorry. Some people just aren't meant to be together.

Happily Ever After [6.11] edit

Desmond Hume: Sacrifice? What the bloody Hell do you know about sacrifice?
Charles Widmore: My son died here for the sake of this island. Your wife - my own daughter - hates me. And I've never even met my grandson. But if you won't help me, Desmond, all of it will be for nothing. Penny, your son, and everyone else, will be gone forever.

Charles Widmore: You heard of a band called Drive Shaft?
Desmond Hume: No, can't say I have.
Charles Widmore: Their bass guitarist overdosed and uh, got himself arrested. And now, if I don't get this junkie to my wife's event she will, simply put, destroy me.

Everybody Loves Hugo [6.12] edit

Libby Smith: It's okay, it's okay. I'm crazy.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Yeah, probably, but we all got something, right? I mean it takes a lot of guts to go up to a total stranger and tell them that you know them from some bizarro alternate universe ... I'm scared just, saying hi to a girl.
Libby Smith: You're doin' fine.

Richard Alpert: A while back, Jacob told me what the Island was, and if he's really standing here right next to me, then just ask him.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: I don't have to prove anything to you, Richard. You either come with me or you can keep trying to blow stuff up. Your call, dude.
Richard Alpert: He's lying. Jacob isn't telling us what to do. Because Jacob never tells us what to do. I'm going to make this simple. If that thing leaves the island, that's it. I-it's over.
Miles Straume: What's over?
Richard Alpert: Everything.

The Man in Black: Remind me, Desmond, how long were you pressing the button down in that hatch?
Desmond Hume: Three years.
The Man in Black: And here you are, back for more. If I didn't know better, I'd say the Island has it in for you.
Desmond Hume: Oh there's nothing special about me, brother.
The Man in Black: I'm sorry.
Desmond Hume: You're here too. If I didn't know better, I'd say the Island has it in for all of us.
The Man in Black: I couldn't agree more.
[The Man in Black is unsettled when he sees the ghostly boy he saw before staring at them]
Desmond Hume: Who is that?
The Man in Black: ...Just ignore him.
Desmond Hume: Do you know that boy?
The Man in Black: I said ignore him!
[Desmond sees the boy smile and run away]

The Man in Black: Why aren't you afraid?
Desmond Hume: Excuse me?
The Man in Black: You're out here in the jungle, alone, with me. No one else on earth knows you're here. So I wanna know, why aren't you afraid?
Desmond Hume: What's the point in being afraid?
[MIB looks slightly intimidated, before smiling and then throwing Desmond down the well they were standing beside]

The Last Recruit [6.13] edit

[Jack and The Man in Black are meeting for the first time]
Jack Shephard: You look just like him.
The Man in Black: Does it bother you?
Jack Shephard: No, what bothers me is I have no idea what the hell you are.
The Man in Black: Sure you do.
Jack Shephard: Why John Locke?
The Man in Black: Because he was stupid enough to believe he had been brought here for a reason. Because he pursued that belief until it got him killed. And because you were kind enough to bring his body back here in a nice little wooden box.
Jack Shephard: And he had to be dead before you could look like him?
The Man in Black: That's right.
Jack Shephard: And who else have you looked like?
The Man in Black: Jack, what do you really want to ask me?
Jack Shephard: Our third day here, I chased my father through the jungle, my dead father. Was that you?
The Man in Black: Yes, that was me.
Jack Shephard: Why?
The Man in Black: You needed to find water. Jack, I know this must be hard for you to understand, but all I've ever tried to do is help you.
Jack Shephard: To "help me?" To do what?
The Man in Black: Leave! But because Jacob chose you, you were trapped on this Island, before you even got here. Now Jacob's dead, we don't need to be trapped here. We can get on a plane and fly away anytime we want.
Jack Shephard: If we could just get on a plane and fly away, why would you even still be here?
The Man in Black: Because it has to be all of us.
[Jack still looks uncertain]
The Man in Black: What?
Jack Shephard: John Locke was the only one of us who ever believed in this place. He did everything he could to keep us from leaving this Island.
The Man in Black: John Locke was not a believer, Jack. He was a sucker.

The Man in Black: Were you following us, Claire?
Claire Littleton: Yeah,
The Man in Black: Why?
Claire Littleton: [Looking at Jack] Because he's my brother.
The Man in Black: Looks like you two have a lot of catching up to do. I'll leave you to it.
Jack Shephard: Claire, I'm-- I'm sorry we--
Claire Littleton: Did he tell you? That he was the one pretending to be our father?
Jack Shephard: Yeah, he did.
Claire Littleton: You know I pretty much gave up hoping that any of you would come back. And now that you're here...it's good to see you, Jack.
Jack Shephard: Yeah, it's good to see you too.
Claire Littleton: Well, I've never had much in the way of family so it really means a lot that you're coming with us.
Jack Shephard: Actually, I haven't decided if I'm coming with you.
Claire Littleton: Yeah you have.
Jack Shephard: What do you mean?
Claire Littleton: You decided the moment you let him talk to you, just like the rest of us. So, whether you like it or not, you're with him now.

[Zoe, Widmore's associate, enters The Man in Black's camp]
The Man in Black: What can I do for you?
Zoe: You took something from us. We want him back.
The Man in Black: I don't know what you're talking about.
[Zoe goes for her walkie, MIB's people take aim on her]
The Man in Black: No, no, it's okay.
Zoe:[On her walkie] Show them what we're capable of.
[A few seconds later, a mortar round lands behind The Man in Black, causing an explosion. He doesn't even twitch, unimtimidated. Zoe gives him a walkie]
Zoe: You can call us on that when you're ready to return what you took.
[Zoe leaves. The Man in Black drops the walkie and crushes it with his stick]
The Man in Black: Well, here we go.

[after Widmore attacks with mortars, The Man in Black carries a wounded Jack into the jungle]
The Man in Black: Don't worry, Jack. Everything's going to be okay. You're with me, now.

The Candidate [6.14] edit

The Man in Black: I need for you to trust me.
Jack Shephard: Why should I trust you?
The Man in Black: Because I could kill you, Jack. Right here, right now. And I could kill every single one of your friends, and there is not a thing you could do to stop me. But instead of killing you, I saved your life, and now I want to save them too.

The Man in Black: Are you sure you won't reconsider, Jack?
Jack Shephard: Yeah, I'm sure.
The Man in Black: Well whoever told you that you need to stay had no idea what they were talking about.
Jack Shephard: John Locke told me that I needed to stay. [pushes the Man in Black in the water]

Jack Shephard: Wait. [stops Sayid from pulling the wires out of the C4]
James "Sawyer" Ford: What the hell are you doing Doc?
Jack Shephard: Nothing is going to happen.
James "Sawyer" Ford: What?
Jack Shephard: Don't pull those wires out. We're going to be OK. Nothing is going to happen.
James "Sawyer" Ford: If I don't pull these wires, Locke is going to blow us to kingdom come.
Jack Shephard: No he's not! Locke can't kill us.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Uhh, what?
Jack Shephard: This is what he wanted. This has been what he has been waiting for. Everything that he has done has been to get us here. He wanted to get us all at the same place at the same time in a nice enclosed space where we had no hopes of getting out.
Jin Kwon: I don't understand.
Jack Shephard: Locke said that he couldn't leave the Island without us. I think that he can't leave the Island unless we're all dead. He told me that he could kill any one of us whenever he wanted, so what if he hasn't because he's not allowed to? What if he's trying to get us to kill each other?
James "Sawyer" Ford: Stay out of my way Doc.
Jack Shephard: If he wanted that thing to blow up, why did he put a timer on it? Why not just throw it inside?
James "Sawyer" Ford: I don't care.
Jack Shephard: Nothing is going to happen.
James "Sawyer" Ford: It's not your decision to make.
Jack Shephard: He can't kill us!
James "Sawyer" Ford: I'm not going to stand here and do nothing!
Jack Shephard: James... We are going to be OK. You just have to trust me.
James "Sawyer" Ford: Sorry Doc, I don't.
[Sawyer pulls the wires from the C4 and the clock then speeds up]

Sayid Jarrah: Listen carefully. There's a well on the main Island a half mile south from where we were just left. Desmond is inside it. Locke wants him dead, which means you are going to need him. Do you understand me?
Jack Shephard: Now why are you telling me this?
Sayid Jarrah: Because it is going to be you Jack. [Takes the bomb and runs]
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Sayid!
[Sayid gets to the front of the sub, away from the others, and the bomb goes off, killing him.]

The Man in Black: [Looking out at sea] It sunk...
Claire Littleton: You mean the sub? But everyone was on board. What, they're all dead?
The Man in Black: Not all of them.
[MIB grabs a rifle and his pack and starts off into the night]
Claire Littleton: Wait, where are you going?
The Man in Black: To finish what I started.

Across The Sea [6.15] edit

Mother: Every question I answer will simply lead to another question.

Mother: Jacob doesn't know how to lie. He's not like you.
Boy in Black: Why, what am I like?
Mother: You're...special.

Boy in Black: [as they play Senet] You can’t do that, Jacob.
Jacob: Why not?
Boy in Black: Because it’s against the rules.
Jacob: You made the rules.
Boy in Black: I found it. One day, you can make up your own game and everyone else will have to follow your rules.

Mother: May I join you?
Man In Black: [sheaths his dagger] Yes...how are you?
Mother: I’m worried.
Man In Black: Well, Mother, you should be. I spent 30 years searching for that place you brought me as a child--that...waterfall with that beautiful light. I’ve walked this island from end to end, not once coming close to finding it. But, then I began to think--what if the light underneath the island--what if I could get to it from someplace else? Figuring out how to reach it took a very long time.
Mother: The people with you, they saw this, too?
Man In Black: Yes, they have some very interesting ideas about what to do with it.
Mother: Do with it? You don’t have any idea wh--
Man In Black: I have no idea because you wouldn’t tell me, Mother!
[The Man In Black dislodges a stone, which allows light to filter in - Mother notices a large, wooden wheel leaning against the cavern wall]
Mother: What is that?
Man In Black: It’s a wheel...we're going to make an opening...one much bigger than this one; and, then I’m going to attach that wheel to a system we’re building. A system that channels the water and the light. And then I’m gonna turn it. And when I do...I’ll finally be able to leave this place.
Mother: How do you know all this? How do you know it will work?
Man In Black: I’m special...Mother.

[Mother has brought Jacob to the cave of light]
Mother: Do you recognize this place?
Jacob: Yes,
Mother: Do you remember what I showed you here?
Jacob: The light.
Mother: You're going to protect it now.
Jacob: What's down there?
Mother: Life. Death. Rebirth. It's the source. The Heart of the Island. Just promise me that no matter what you do, you won't ever go down there.
Jacob: Would I die?
Mother: It would be worse than dying, Jacob. Much worse. [She pulls out a jug of wine and pours some into a cup. She whispers a Latin incantation over it] Here, drink this.
Jacob: What happens if I do?
Mother: You will accept the responsibility that you will protect this place for as long as you can. And then you'll have to find your replacement.
Jacob: I don't want to protect this place.
Mother: Someone has to.
Jacob: I don't care.
Mother: My time is over.
Jacob: Why, why is your time over?
Mother: It has to be you, Jacob!
Jacob: No it doesn't, you wanted it to be him [The Man in Black]! But now I'm all you have.
Mother: It was always supposed to be you, Jacob. I see that now. And one day you'll see it too. But until then, you don't really have a choice. Now please, take the cup and drink.
[Jacob drinks from the cup]
Mother: Now you and I are the same.

What They Died For [6.16] edit

Richard Alpert: I'm not interested in hiding. He's gonna find me sooner or later anyway. I'd rather have it over with.
Miles Straume: These are both great plans, but I'm gonna go with surviving. If you need us, we'll be running through the jungle.

Ben Linus: [after killing Widmore] He doesn't get to save his daughter.

Jacob: You call him "the monster." But I'm responsible for what happened to him. I made him that way. And ever since then, he's been trying to kill me. It was only a matter of time before he figured out how, and when he did, someone would have to replace me. And that's why I brought you all here.
James "Sawyer" Ford: Tell me something, Jacob. Why do I gotta be punished for your mistake? What made you think you can mess with my life? I was doin' just fine 'til you dragged my ass to this damn rock.
Jacob: No, you weren't. None of you were. I didn't pluck any of you out of a happy existence. You were all flawed. I chose you because you were like me. You were all alone. You were all looking for something that you couldn't find out there. I chose you because you needed this place as much as it needed you.

The End [6.17] edit

Part 1 edit

Jack Shephard: Jacob didn't say anything to me about Desmond.
James "Sawyer" Ford: Doesn't sound like he said anything about anything.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: IThat's kind of true, dude. He's worse than Yoda.
James "Sawyer" Ford: All right, ya'll head to your heart of the island and I'll go back and get the magic leprechaun out of that well.
Jack Shephard: If we leave a trail can you catch up with us?
James "Sawyer" Ford: [nods] Hell, yeah, I can.
Jack Shephard: Then be safe.
James "Sawyer" Ford: [to Kate] I'd ask you along, but that'd take all of the fun out of me telling you you can't come.
Kate Austen: [smiles] I guess I'll just have to resist the urge to follow you anyway.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: I got a bad feeling about this.

Kate Austen: Who died?
Desmond Hume: A man named Christian Shephard.
Kate Austen: "Christian Shephard"? Seriously?

The Man in Black: I'm sorry, Jack. I think you're a little confused about what I came here to do.
Jack Shephard: No, I'm not. No, you're going to the far side of the bamboo forest to the place that I've sworn that I'll protect. And then you think you're gonna destroy the island.
The Man in Black: I "think"?
Jack Shephard: That's right, because that's not what's gonna happen.
The Man in Black: Then what's gonna happen, Jack?
Jack Shephard: I'm gonna kill you.
The Man in Black: How do you plan to do that?
Jack Shephard: It's a surprise.

The Man in Black: If there was a button down there to push, we could fight about whether or not to push it. It'd be just like old times.
Jack Shephard: You're not John Locke. You disrespect his memory by wearing his face, but you're nothing like him. Turns out he was right about most everything. I just wish I could've told him that while he was still alive.
The Man in Black: He wasn't right about anything, Jack. And when this island drops into the ocean, and you drop with it, you're finally gonna realize that.

The Man in Black: [holding a knife to Jack's throat] I want you to know, Jack, you died for nothing!
Kate Austen: [shoots MIB in the back] I saved you a bullet!
[Jack gets to his feet; MIB looks out at the Island as it slowly crumbles]
The Man in Black: You're too late...
[Jack kicks the Man in Black over the cliffs, killing him]

Part 2 edit

Ben Linus: [over the walkie-talkie to Frank] Frank, how's it going over there? What's your timetable?
Frank Lapidus: [shouting] Don't bother me!
[Frank tosses the walke-talkie away]
Ben Linus: Sounds like they're making progress.

Jack Shephard: Desmond, you've done enough. You want to do something, go home and be with your wife and son.
Desmond Hume: What about you, Jack?
Jack Shephard: I'll see you in another life, brother.

Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Jack's gone.
[Hurley begins to cry]
Ben Linus: He did his job, Hugo.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: But it's my job now! What the hell am I gonna do?
Ben Linus: I think you'll do what you do best: Take care of people. And you can start by helping Desmond go home.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: How? People can't leave the Island.
Ben Linus: That was how Jacob ran things. Maybe there's another way, a better way.
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Can you help me?
Ben Linus: I'm sorry?
Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: I could sorta use someone with, like, experience. For a little while. So...will you help me, Ben?
Ben Linus: [emotional] I would be honored.

[Jack has entered the back of the church in the sideways world. He finds his father's coffin inside. Upon touching it the memories of his life on the Island come rushing back. He then opens the coffin and finds it is empty; he closes it disappointed]
Christian Shephard: Hey, kiddo.
Jack Shephard: [Shocked] Dad?
Christian Shephard: Hello, Jack.
Jack Shephard: ...I don't understand. You died.
Christian Shephard: Yeah, I did.
Jack Shephard: Then how are you here right now?
Christian Shephard: How are you here?
Jack Shephard: [beat] I died too.
Christian Shephard: [They hug as Jack becomes wracked with emotion] It's ok, it's ok, son. It's ok.
Jack Shephard: I love you, dad.
Christian Shephard: I love you too.
Jack Shephard: Are you...are you real?
Christian Shephard: [Laughs] I sure hope so. I'm real, you're real, everything that happened to you is real. The people in that church, they're real.
Jack Shephard: And everyone else, they're all dead too?
Christian Shephard: Everyone dies sometime, kiddo. Some before you, some long after you.
Jack Shephard: Are they all here now?
Christian Shephard: Well, there is no 'now' here.
Jack Shephard: Where are we, dad?
Christian Shephard: This is the place that you all made together so that you could find one another. The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people. That's why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them and they needed you.
Jack Shephard: For what?
Christian Shephard: To remember and let go.
Jack Shephard: Kate. She said we were leaving.
Christian Shephard: Not leaving, no. Moving on.

[final lines]
John Locke: [to Jack] We've been waiting for you.
