A transcript is a retrospective written record of dialogue, and like a script (a prospective record) may include other scene information such as props or actions.

Episode 24 - "Exodus, Part 2"
Directed by: Jack Bender
[Continued from Exodus, Part 1 transcript]
[Opening shot of the baby's eye. He's crying and a frustrated Claire is shushing him. Charlie runs over.]
CHARLIE: Claire, everybody's leaving.
CLAIRE: Okay, well, I can't go anywhere, alright? I've got the baby, and I'm so tired, I can't carry him -- now he's wet, there's sand everywhere, I don't have anymore nappies.
CHARLIE: [reaching for the baby] Why don't you let me help.
CLAIRE: [brushing his hands away and picking up the baby] No, nobody ever taught me how to do this, okay?
CHARLIE: Claire, it's going to be okay.
CLAIRE: Oh, why do people keep telling me that? Are they the ones with the baby?
[We see Sayid talking to a group of redshirts.]
SAYID: We've got to get there before sundown. Once you reach the caves, stay there. The rest of us will be right behind you.
[The group disperses and Charlie enters.]
CHARLIE: Sayid. I need a gun. Look, I know Jack gave them to you. I want one right now. I have to protect Claire.
SAYID: Rousseau said the Others wouldn't be here until nightfall.
CHARLIE: Rousseau is certifiable. What if they show up before then and-
SAYID: The last time you handled a sidearm-
CHARLIE: I killed a murderer. I did us all a favor.
SAYID: Charlie, you're emotionally involved. Let me handle the weapons.
CHARLIE: But you're not here all the time. You can't protect Claire. Look, I need a gun!
SAYID: If you really want to help Claire, get her packed, carry her child to the caves. That's what she needs.
[At the Black Rock.]
HURLEY: How exactly does something like this happen?
DANIELLE: Are you on the same Island as I am?
HURLEY: I guess that explains it.
[Jack, Locke, Kate and Hurley move toward the ship. Arzt stays where he is and Danielle starts walking off in the other direction.]
ARZT: Hold on, wait, hold on. Hold, wait. What are we a couple miles inland? [to Danielle] A tsunami probably swept it here, huh, right?
JACK: [seeing Danielle's departure] Hey, hey, where are you going?
DANIELLE: Explosives are in the hold of the ship.
JACK: Rousseau, wait.
DANIELLE: I did what you asked. You need dynamite, you don't need me. [She exits.]
LOCKE: Let her go, Jack.
JACK: Who's going to lead us back?
LOCKE: I'll lead us back.
JACK: Damn it. You heard her -- the explosives are in the hold. Let's go.
ARZT: Whoa, whoa, hold on, hold on. I came here to tell you how to handle dynamite, not explore some ghost ship, you think I'm go-
JACK: Alright, just stay out here.
HURLEY: Uh, I'm going to stay out here and hang with Arnzt.
[Jack, Locke and Kate enter the ship. Jack steps on a skeleton. We see skeletons chained up.]
LOCKE: Slaves. [He sees a giant drill bit.] This ship must have been in route to a mining colony -- probably set off from the eastern coast of Africa -- Mozambique.
[They look around the ship seeing more chains and manacles. Kate spots the explosives.]
KATE: Jack, John, over here.
[Arzt and Hurley outside.]
ARZT: And then my 3rd wife, she says, get this, she says, "I didn't sign up for this." Now you tell me, what the hell is that even supposed to mean? [Hurley doesn't respond.] What, am -- am I boring you?
ARZT: You know what? I'm -- I'm sorry, I'm so... I'm sorry that I'm not cool enough to be part of your merry little band of adventurers.
ARZT: I know a clique when I see it. I teach high school, pal-y. You know, you people think you're the only ones on this Island doing anything of value. I've got news for you. There were 40 other survivors of this plane crash. And we are all people, too.
[Kate finds a pick axe to open the box of dynamite.]
KATE: You know what? We could probably get it open if I just-
JACK: No, no, no, we should take it outside.
KATE: Why? We don't even know if it's...
JACK: You're not prying open a crate that says explosives on the side with a pick axe, Kate.
LOCKE: Yeah, I agree with Jack -- take it outside, open it there.
KATE: [reaching to grab an end of the crate] Okay.
JACK: I got it. You mind showing us the way?
[Arzt and Hurley outside.]
ARZT: And it's not just the teenagers, either. You know, the gym teachers -- you think they let me sit with them in the cafeteria? No. They do not.
HURLEY: Dude, this is all in your head.
ARZT: Really? Then you explain to me why Kate gets the best pieces of wreckage to build her shelter? And the Korean guy? Does he catch fish for everybody on the Island? No, he does not. He doesn't. And some of us have actually lost weight while we were here. Now, would mind telling me where you're hiding the carbs because I can't figure...
[Arzt stops talking upon seeing Jack and Locke exiting the ship with the crate of dynamite.]
ARZT: What the hell are you people doing?! Wait, wait, stop, stop, right where you are. Alright, I want you to put that down carefully. Put it down carefully. Put it gently, gently. Damn it, carefully, gently, gently. Alright, now get out of there. Come away from there. C'mon, get out. Move away from it.
JACK: What the hell are you doing?
ARZT: Shhh. Be quiet. Do any of you have any idea what happens to dynamite in 90+ degree heat, huh? [Arzt pries open the crate with a pocket knife.] So you know? Any of you? It sweats nitroglycerin. [Jack starts moving toward him.] Whoa, hey, what you doing? Did I ask you to come closer? [He removes a stick of dynamite from the crate.] Dynamite is nitroglycerin stabilized by clay. Nitroglycerin is the most dangerous and unstable explosive known to man. Hey, Kate give me your shirt. Now, princess, give me your shirt. I need to wrap the dynamite. Just throw it to me, right here. Be careful, c'mon, hurry up. [She gives him her shirt.] Okay, good, now back up, back up, back up. Just back up. Get out of my way. Any of you ever hear about the guy who invented nitroglycerin? Probably not -- because he blew his freaking face off. [Arzt wets Kate's shirt and wraps it around the dynamite.] His lab assistant came into the room, saw that his mentor detonated, and he said, "Huh, I guess this stuff does work." Alright, we're not going to take any more of this stuff than we need because nitroglycerin is extremely temperamental, so we-
[The dynamite explodes and bits and pieces of Arzt and leaves rain down on the other four, who've fallen to the ground.]
[Flashback - We see Sun and Jin at the Sydney airport.]
SUN: [opening a sandwich box] 반으로 자를까요? [Subtitle: Do you want it cut in half?] [She hands it to Jin.] 여기요. [Subtitle: Here you go.] [She spills coffee on him.] 어머 어떡해 미안해 미안, 뜨겁죠? [Subtitle: Oh, I'm so sorry! Are you alright?]
JIN: 괜찮아, 괜찮아. 됐어. 화장실이 어디 있어? [Subtitle: I'm alright, I'm fine. Where's the restroom?]
SUN: 저쪽... 저쪽에 있네요. [Subtitle: It's over there.]
[We see Sayid walking with airport security.]
AIRPORT COP: Sorry for the inconvenience.
SAYID: I'm sure you are.
AIRPORT COP: Sir, your bag was unattended.
SAYID: Am I free to go?
AIRPORT COP: Yes, sir.
SAYID: Good, I have a plane to catch.
[We see Jin in the restroom cleaning up. A man in a Hawaiian shirt is there washing his hands.]
HAWAIIAN SHIRT: Hey, could you hand me a paper towel there, bud? A paper towel -- this one's broken.
[Jin signals that he doesn't speak English.]
HAWAIIAN SHIRT: Oh, oh, you don't speak English. Sorry.
[Hawaiian Shirt goes to the next paper towel dispenser.]
HAWAIIAN SHIRT: 아, 페이퍼 타올이 여기 있네. [Subtitle: Here's a paper towel.]
JIN: 뭐라고요? [Subtitle: What?]
HAWAIIAN SHIRT: 자네의 장인이신 백 회장님 밑에서 일하고 있지. [Subtitle: I work for Mr. Paik. Your father-in-law, and employer.]
JIN: 여태까지 날 미행한거야? [Subtitle: You've been following me?]
HAWAIIAN SHIRT: 물론. 그리고 자네가 도망가려는 것도 알고 있지. 자네는 남은 시계를 캘리포니아에 있는 백 회장님 친구에게 전하라고. 만약 그렇게 못하면 자네는 그녀를 잃게 되겠지. 넌 자유의 몸의 아니야. 여태까지 그래왔고 앞으로도 계속. [Subtitle: Yes. I know you're planning to run away. But you're going to take that watch to Mr. Paik's friend in California. You do anything else -- anything -- you will lose her. You are not free. You never have been, and you never will be.]
[On-Island - We see Jin apparently enjoying being on the raft.]
WALT: Dad, look!
[Shot of part of the Island.]
MICHAEL: How does a place this big never get discovered?
SAWYER: Don't know, but you could build yourself one hell of a beach resort right over there.
MICHAEL: Yeah, you build your resort. I'm happy to say goodbye to this place forever.
WALT: What about everybody else? Think they'll be okay?
[We hear Sawyer singing Redemption Song in the background.]
MICHAEL: I hope so, buddy. At least until we can get them some help.
SAWYER: [singing] Redemption song is all I'll ever have...
MICHAEL: You singing Bob Marley?
SAWYER: No. Why, you like Bob Marley?
MICHAEL: Man, who doesn't like Bob Marley?
[We see Sun at the beach looking out to sea, and at her wedding ring. Shannon is struggling with her luggage and Vincent.]
SHANNON: Damn it!
SAYID: Do you really need all that?
SHANNON: Yeah, I do.
SAYID: Why do you have to bring so much?
SHANNON: Don't you have a hike to lead?
[She drops her suitcase and Sayid finds she has some of Boone's clothes. Shannon grabs them.]
SHANNON: I'm fine.
SAYID: These belong to your brother.
SHANNON: I need these things. I can't just leave them. What are we doing? Hiding? As if they won't find us. It's just -- it's too much. It's too much.
SAYID: [stroking her hair] It won't be too much if I carry it for you. Now come on, I have a hike to lead.
[We see Hurley sitting on a log by the Black Rock. Kate enters.]
KATE: You okay?
HURLEY: That was messed up.
HURLEY: He just...exploded in front of us. He was just trying to help. This is because I came.
HURLEY: I'm kind of bad luck.
KATE: Hey, it was an accident.
HURLEY: An accident, yeah.
[We see Jack wetting a shirt to wrap the dynamite in. Locke slowly reaches for a stick of dynamite.]
JACK: Locke, we should think about this.
JACK: Maybe this isn't the best way.
LOCKE: It's the only way, Jack.
[Locke reaches again for a stick of dynamite.]
JACK: How many do we need to blow the Hatch?
LOCKE: [pulling a roll of fuse out of the crate] Two should take care of the hinge, three to be safe.
LOCKE: I'm removing the driest pieces to minimize our risk transporting it. [He reaches for another stick.] You ever play "Operation"?
JACK: Sure. Don't touch the sides.
LOCKE: I -- I always got nailed on the funny bone. [He picks up a stick.] Bzzzt!
JACK: [flinching] You like to play games, John?
[Shot of the baby. We see Claire preparing to leave. Charlie enters with something over his shoulder.]
CHARLIE: Okay, I know we're in a rush to escape to the caves, so I solved the turniphead transport issue. This is just a blanket from the plane. And then there's a piece of wood here that goes through this bamboo. [He demonstrates how it works.] Here you go. It's a Bjorn.
CLAIRE: A bjorn?
CHARLIE: Bjorn -- it's Dutch for baby carrier.
CLAIRE: Yeah, thanks.
CHARLIE: That's okay.
CLAIRE: [kissing his cheek] Thank you.
CHARLIE: Oh, that's okay.
CLAIRE: Thanks. I'll just put him in there.
CHARLIE: It's really...
DANIELLE: [entering] Sayid! Where is he?
CHARLIE: Rousseau! What?
DANIELLE: Sayid? Where is he?
CHARLIE: He already left.
DANIELLE: I need him now.
CHARLIE: Jack and Kate...
DANIELLE: There's no time. Where is Sayid?
CHARLIE: Alright, just calm down, okay. I'll get him for you. [to Claire] Stay here, alright.
CHARLIE: [exiting] Sayid! Sayid!
CLAIRE: What happened out there?
DANIELLE: [mesmerized by the baby] What is his name? The child. What is his name?
CLAIRE: [uncomfortable] Oh, I haven't named him yet.
DANIELLE: May I hold him?
CLAIRE: Why do you need Sayid?
DANIELLE: You don't want me to hold him.
CLAIRE: No, I just fed him. I don't think it's a good idea, okay?
[Claire notices the scratches on Danielle's arm. We see a brief FLASHBACK of Claire struggling with Danielle, scratching her.]
CLAIRE: Why did I do that? Why did I scratch you?
[Flashback - We see Charlie in a hotel room searching for his heroin. A girl is lying in the bed.]
LILY: What's going on?
CHARLIE: My flight, my flight to LA leaves in a couple of hours -- so I've got to get moving, you know. [He finds the heroin in the bathroom.]
LILY: You want to do one more bump for the road?
CHARLIE: [coming out of the bathroom] It's all gone. We did it all last night. I have some champagne.
LILY: [slight panicked] You've got to have some left.
CHARLIE: Mm-mm. No. It's done. I'll look you up next time I'm in Sydney, okay? I'll send you an autographed copy of my CD and then you can listen to it whenever you want.
LILY: I don't want your piece of crap CD from your piece of crap band.
CHARLIE: Last night in the bar you said you were a fan.
LILY: Fine. I'm a huge fan. Drivethru is the best damned band ever. Now just give me a bump because I know you've got some.
CHARLIE: Shaft. Drive Shaft. [Charlie pulls the heroin out of his pocket when Lily goes into the bathroom.]
LILY: [coming out of the bathroom] What's that in your hand?
LILY: Holding out on me?
CHARLIE: Holding out on you? No, I'm not holding out...
LILY: [cornering him] Give it to me.
CHARLIE: Give you what? I'm not holding anything.
LILY: Give it to me.
CHARLIE: I've got nothing in my hand!
LILY: Give it to me!
[Lily knees him in the groin. They struggle.]
LILY: Get up.
CHARLIE: Get off.
LILY: Get up. Let it go. Let it go.
CHARLIE: What are you, crazy?
LILY: Let it go.
CHARLIE: Get off!
LILY: Let it go!
[She starts hitting him and he throws her off.]
CHARLIE: Get off me.
LILY: [smacking him some more] You're pathetic. You're pathetic.
[She grabs the champagne and leaves Charlie lying on the floor clutching the heroin.]
[On-Island - We see Charlie running through the jungle looking for Sayid.]
CHARLIE: [catching up] Sayid! Sayid, Rousseau's on the beach. She needs you.
SAYID: Rousseau? What for?
CHARLIE: I don't know.
[They hear a scream and start running. When the enter the beach area Sun is kneeling next to Claire's body, yelling. Sayid, Shannon, Charlie, and a redshirt run to the scene.]
SUN: Help! Someone! Help!
CHARLIE: My god!
SAYID: What happened?
SUN: [showing them a bloody rag] Her head.
CLAIRE: Where -- where is my baby?
[Charlie looks for the baby who is missing.]
CHARLIE: Oh, my god.
CLAIRE: Is he alright?
SAYID: Rousseau, was she alone?
CLAIRE: Did she take my baby? Did she take my baby?!
SAYID: Claire, which way did she go?
CLAIRE: I don't know! She took my baby!
CHARLIE: This is your fault! [punching Sayid] You brought her into the camp! If you had just given me a gun!
[Charlie makes to take another jab at Sayid. Sayid grabs Charlie's throat.]
SAYID: Do not hit me again. You want to waste time assigning blame? There's plenty to go around. She has a head start. If we leave now we can catch her.
CHARLIE: How are we going to do that?!
SAYID: Because I know where she's going.
CLAIRE: [hysterical] I want my baby!
[At the Black Rock.]
JACK: We can carry all the sticks in my pack. The more insulation we stuff in the better.
LOCKE: I think we should split them up.
LOCKE: It's not smart to keep it all together. So, we split them up. If we need 3 sticks to blow the hinge then we should bring 6 -- 3 and 3 -- failsafe, in case one of us...
JACK: You and me, then.
KATE: No, I'm -- I'm taking one.
JACK: It's not going to happen, no.
KATE: This is why I came.
JACK: Then, you wasted a trip.
KATE: I need to do this.
JACK: Kate, no one owes anyone anything.
KATE: I'm carrying one.
JACK: We're done here.
KATE: This is not your decision.
JACK: Kate, yes it is.
LOCKE: We'll draw straws. They're coming. We don't have time to argue about who gets to risk their life, so -- we'll let fate decide.
KATE: Works for me.
JACK: [to Hurley] What about you? You want to carry some dynamite, too? [Hurley stares.] What?
HURLEY: [pointing to a piece of flesh on Jack's back] You got some... Arnzt on you.
LOCKE: [holding sticks to draw] Short sticks carry the packs. [Kate and Locke draw the short sticks.] Looks like it's me and you, Kate.
[At the raft. Walt, Michael and Jin are at the radar screen.]
WALT: So, what's this stuff even do?
MICHAEL: Well, the transmitter sends out an SOS in case someone's listening. And if there's anything out there, we'll see it on this radar screen here.
[Jin goes to the radar emitter.]
MICHAEL: Here we go. C'mon, someone find us.
[Walt sees Sawyer reading the messages from the bottle.]
WALT: Those are the messages everybody wrote.
SAWYER: Sure are.
WALT: They're private.
SAWYER: Yep. I, for one, never knew how much Tracy missed her hubby and 2 kids back in Fresno. Yet she's sleeping next to good old Scott to keep her warm at night.
WALT: That's Steve. Scott's dead.
SAWYER: Whatever. It's alright, Kazoo, we've got to keep ourselves entertained. Who the hell is Hugo and how's he got a 160 million dollars to leave to his mom.
WALT: How would you like it if I read yours?
SAWYER: You can't read mine because I didn't write one.
WALT: Why not?
SAWYER: Because the only one I ever wrote is to the man I'm going to kill.
WALT: Why you going to kill him?
SAWYER: Because I need to.
[Shot of the black smoke. We see Sayid and Charlie running toward it.]
CHARLIE: Are you bloody joking?! Why would she go for the black smoke?! Isn't that where the Others are supposed to be?!
SAYID: The Others are precisely why she would go there. Rousseau told us she saw black smoke the day her own child was taken 16 years ago. [Sayid stops at the gun case.] They took something from her, and now she believes she has something that they want.
CHARLIE: She's making a trade?
SAYID: I believe she is, yes.
CHARLIE: That's insane. She's insane.
SAYID: Don't try to apply reason to her actions. She's a mother who lost her child, just like Claire. [Sayid hands Charlie a gun.] This isn't about revenge. Don't make it personal.
[Claire and Sun enter.]
CLAIRE: I'm coming with you.
SAYID: That's not a good idea, Claire.
CLAIRE: This is my baby, okay?! I let her take him!
CHARLIE: Hey, hey.
CLAIRE: [hitting Charlie] Don't tell me what to do, okay!
CHARLIE: Calm down!
CLAIRE: I am going to come with you! This is my fault and I'm coming and you can't stop me!
CHARLIE: It's alright, Claire.
CLAIRE: [spent] Get him back, Charlie. Get Aaron back.
CLAIRE: Please, get him back.
CHARLIE: Claire, I will get him back. Promise.
[Shot of the black smoke.]
[Flashback - We see Walt and Michael at Sydney airport. Walt playing GBA.]
MICHAEL: Hey, you want something to eat? [Walt doesn't respond.] I guess that's a no, then. If you're worried about Vincent, he going to be okay, man. Dogs fly in the luggage compartment all the time. -- Alright, I've got to call work, right over there. Don't go anywhere, okay?
[We see Michael at a pay phone.]
MICHAEL: No, I live in a studio apartment. I've got to be out the door in the morning for work by 5am. Who's going to watch him? How's he going to get to school? What's he going to do after school? I can't do this, ma. -- You know, I was -- listen, I was thinking -- I was thinking maybe you could take him. -- Look, ma, if it's a question of money, I... [Locke goes by in his wheelchair] What am I supposed to do with him?! He's not supposed to be mine! He was never part of the plan. Yeah, I -- thanks a lot. [He hangs up and turns around to discover Walt standing there.] Hey, man, I was, uh...
WALT: I need new batteries.
[On-Island - We see Michael and Walt at the raft.]
MICHAEL: [steering] Hey, want to try?
MICHAEL: C'mon, come here. You drive for a while.
MICHAEL: Absolutely. Okay now, look, the most important part of this boat is the rudder. It's how you steer. You turn it gradually -- nothing sharp, okay. Push it this way.
WALT: Where are we going?
MICHAEL: Look, [holding a compass] so, we're going approximately North by Northeast. So, hopefully that puts us into a shipping lane, or we hit some land.
WALT: What do I aim for?
MICHAEL: See that cloud on the horizon, right there?
MICHAEL: You aim for that.
WALT: Got it. -- How come you and my mom didn't stay together?
MICHAEL: We tried. It just didn't work out, so -- our lives, our interests -- we just went in different directions.
WALT: How come I never saw you?
MICHAEL: Because your Mom didn't want me to. She did what she thought was best for you.
WALT: She was wrong.
[Michael smiles. The boat hits something and the rudder comes loose.]
MICHAEL: Hey, we hit a log! We lost the rudder.
JIN: Rudder! Rudder!
MICHAEL: We're losing it! It's sinking!
[Sawyer takes off his shoes and shirt.]
MICHAEL: Stop the boat. Stop the boat. Just pull the sail down. Right.
[Sawyer jumps in and swims for the rudder.]
MICHAEL: Sawyer! Sawyer! [to Jin] Give me the rope.
JIN: [throwing the rope to Michael] Rope!
SAWYER: [at the rudder] It's sinking!
[Michael throws the rope.]
SAWYER: I can't reach it!
[Michael throws the rope again.]
JIN: 다시 던져봐.
MICHAEL: Got it?
JIN: 먼저 묶고!
MICHAEL: Tie it around the rudder, we'll pull you in!
[They pull Sawyer and the rudder in.]
MICHAEL: [pulling Sawyer up] C'mon, buddy. You just saved our asses, buddy.
[Michael picks up Sawyer's gun and wraps his shirt around it.]
MICHAEL: [a bit angry] Here's your shirt. You should put that back on before you burn.
[We see Jack carefully helping Kate put on her backpack.]
JACK: Yeah, well, luck of the draw.
LOCKE: The sun sets in 90 minutes, give or take. If we want to get back to the Hatch we're going to have to hustle.
JACK: Okay, this is how we do this. I'll lead -- Kate, you're right behind me, then Hurley. John, you bring up the rear. If you start to see me heading the wrong way-
LOCKE: We should stagger our formation -- keep a safe distance from each other.
JACK: Alright, we stagger. If anyone hears anything or sees anything...
HURLEY: Like the security system that eats people?
JACK: Yeah, like that. You two, you take your packs off, you put them down and you run. You got it?
KATE: Got it.
LOCKE: Yes, sir.
JACK: Okay, let's do this.
[We see Sun, Claire, Shannon and redshirts arrive at the caves.]
SUN: [to Shannon] He died bravely.
SUN: Your brother.
SHANNON: Yeah. Thanks.
SUN: Do you think all this -- all we've been through -- do you think we're being punished?
SHANNON: Punished for what?
SUN: Things we did before -- the secrets we kept, the lies we told.
SHANNON: Who do you think is punishing us?
CLAIRE: No one's punishing us. There's no such thing as fate.
[We see Sayid and Charlie running/climbing along rocky shore.]
SAYID: Are you okay?
CHARLIE: I'm fine, keep going.
SAYID: We're losing the light. Try to keep up.
CHARLIE: I'm coming. [Sayid gets too far ahead.] Sayid! Sayid! -- Sayid!
SAYID: [shouting from a distance] Over here.
SAYID: [approaching] You can barely breathe. We're going to rest.
CHARLIE: Rest? She's out there right now...
SAYID: In another mile you're going to collapse. We're going to take a break.
[They stop at the Nigerian plane site.]
CHARLIE: Is this where Boone fell?
SAYID: The plane was up there.
CHARLIE: Where did it come from?
SAYID: Based on the maps inside -- Nigeria.
CHARLIE: Anyone on board?
SAYID: Two men dressed as priests.
SAYID: Drug runners in disguise. [He picks up a Mary statue.] The plane was loaded with heroin. [He picks up his pack to go.] Alright, now we go.
[Charlie stares down at the broken statue with a look of temptation.]
[We see Jack, Kate, Locke and Hurley walking through the jungle.]
HURLEY: So, dude? What do you think is inside of that hatch thing?
LOCKE: What do you think is inside it?
HURLEY: Stacks of TV dinners from the 50's, or something. And TVs with cable, some cell phones, clean socks, soap, Twinkies -- you know, for dessert, after the TV dinners. Twinkies keep for, like, 8000 years, man.
LOCKE: [laughing] I like Twinkies, too.
HURLEY: C'mon, really, what do you think is inside?
LOCKE: Hope. I think hope's inside.
[They continue walking. A large bird calls and flies away, scaring everyone.]
HURLEY: Whoever named this place Dark Territory? Genius.
[We hear a chittering sound. Jack and Kate see a black "shadow" slide by a short distance to their right. Jack looks at Kate.]
KATE: Yeah, I saw it. We've got to get out of here.
[Jack, Kate, and Hurley move off quickly. Locke stays to stare. We hear some animal cries, then the "footsteps," and sounds of the Monster. Jack takes his pack off and runs with Kate and Hurley. Locke takes his pack off and tries to get a closer look. Jack sees Locke going toward the Monster.]
JACK: Locke! What are you doing?
[Jack runs after Locke. Locke continues toward the Monster.]
[The sounds of the Monster die down, and Locke stands still. There is a sudden "footstep" right next to Locke and he falls. Locke's expression changes from wonder to terror as he "sees" the Monster loom above him.]
[Locke scrambles to get away from the Monster. Jack runs after him.]
[We see Kate and Hurley running. Kate turns around.]
KATE: Jack! Jack!
[Kate runs after Jack. We hear a ratcheting sound, and Locke is captured by a tedril of the Monster by the ankle and dragged. Jack runs and grabs hold of Locke barely keeping him from being dragged into a hole in the ground. Kate enters.]
KATE: Oh, my god.
JACK: I need the dynamite. [Kate takes her pack off.] No, no, it's in my pack. Just go get it! Hurry, go! John, John.
LOCKE: Let me go. Just let me go. I'll be alright. [Locke tries to let go.]
LOCKE: Let me go. I'll be alright.
KATE: [entering] Hang on. I've got it.
JACK: Careful unwrapping it.
JACK: Now throw it in.
KATE: It'll blow us up.
JACK: Just hurry, I can't hold him!
LOCKE: Don't do this, Kate!
JACK: Throw it in -- now, Kate!
[She throws the dynamite in. We hear the explosion and see a cloud of black come up behind Locke, gather together, and "exit." Jack and Kate pull Locke up.]
[Shot of Jin's watch on a pad of paper at the raft. Michael picks up the paper.]
MICHAEL: [to Jin] Hey, your wife -- wife made this for you?
MICHAEL: She sounded it out, huh -- so you could learn English?
MICHAEL: Yeah, I wish she had made one for me. So what words are in here? English words -- what can you say?
JIN: Ah, starboard, aft, port, sail, eat.
MICHAEL: [laughing] Yeah, right. She did you well. I hope you know how lucky you are, man. [Jin indicates that the rudder is fixed.] Back in business? Alrighty. [Michael grabs the watch to give it back to Jin.] Oh, hey, it's yours.
JIN: [offering the watch to Michael] You.
JIN: [putting the watch in Michael's hand] You.
MICHAEL: Um, thank -- you. Thanks.
[We see Sun approach Claire at the caves.]
SUN: I made you some tea.
CLAIRE: [not accepting it] I'm fine. [Then she takes the tea.] Thanks.
SUN: Aaron is a beautiful name. What does it mean?
CLAIRE: I don't know what Aaron means.
SUN: They will bring him back.
CLAIRE: Don't say that.
SUN: They will.
CLAIRE: How do you know that?
SUN: Because he said he would. Charlie will bring your baby back.
[We see Charlie and Sayid running through the jungle. They come across a blanket on the ground.]
SAYID: Charlie, wait.
[Charlie picks up what he thinks is the baby, but it's a booby-trap. A net full of rocks rains down on Charlie.]
SAYID: Charlie! See, let me see. [Charlie has a gash above his eye.]
CHARLIE: It's bleeding.
SAYID: We need to put pressure on it.
CHARLIE: Okay. Ow.
SAYID: [handing Charlie a towel] There.
CHARLIE: Ow. Animal, what is she...
SAYID: Keep the pressure on, like this.
CHARLIE: Ow! Ow! Ow!
SAYID: She's been here for 16 years. She's learned how to set traps quickly. Okay, let's have a look. It's too deep. It's bleeding too much. You're going to have to go back.
CHARLIE: No, I'm not going back! You're going to have to fix it.
SAYID: I'm not a doctor.
CHARLIE: You're a soldier! What do people do when you get wounded?! I'm not going back without that baby, Sayid.
SAYID: Don't move. [Sayid gets a bullet and opens it.]
SAYID: Remove the towel and tilt your head back. Remove the towel.
CHARLIE: This is because I hit you, isn't it?
[Sayid pours the gunpowder onto the wound. Charlie moans.]
SAYID: [getting a match] This is not going to be pleasant. You ready?
[He puts the match to the gunpowder. Charlie screams.]
[Flashback - Hurley wakes up in a hotel room and sees that his clock and lamp don't work. He pulls open the curtain. He sees that an electrical outlet has burned.]
HURLEY: Oh, man.
[He's frantically packing.]
HURLEY: [on the phone] I need my car. 20 minutes? Look, I can't miss my flight. My mom's birthday is tomorrow.
[Hurley runs to the elevator which is full. He runs for the stairs. We see Charlie in the elevator.]
CHARLIE: Some of us have a bloody flight to make!
HURLEY: [running through the hotel lobby] Excuse me, coming through. Excuse me.
[Driving to the airport his car breaks down.]
HURLEY: No, no, no!
[He pulls off the road and starts running to the airport.]
HURLEY: [running through the airport] Excuse me, coming through, excuse me, excuse me. Look out, excuse me.
[He arrives at the check-in desk. The ticket agent starts checking him in.]
HURLEY: Any way we can hurry that up? My mom's birthday is tomorrow. Or, today -- I don't know. I don't really get the whole time change thing, but I've got to make that flight.
TICKET AGENT: I am going as fast as the system will allow me, dear. You're confirmed for seat 20G. However, the airline has a policy that a man of your size must purchase two tickets.
HURLEY: What? I didn't have to do that on the flight out here.
TICKET AGENT: Am I going to have to weigh you, dear?
HURLEY: Fine, whatever. I'll buy the one next to it.
TICKET AGENT: Alrighty. Here are two together.
HURLEY: Book it.
TICKET AGENT: Uh-oh.
HURLEY: Uh-oh, what uh-oh?
TICKET AGENT: It appears that your flight is already boarding in the Oceanic international terminal. Well, this is the domestic terminal. I don't think you're meant to make this flight, dear.
[Hurley runs through the airport, excusing himself along the way. He runs to the front of the security checkpoint line.]
HURLEY: Excuse me, sorry. Sorry, this is an emergency. I've got to cut through. Excuse me, dude. Dude?
SECURITY AGENT: Back of the line.
HURLEY: You've got to let me in. No, you don't understand...
SECURITY AGENT: Back of the line.
HURLEY: This is...
SECURITY AGENT: Back of the line.
[Hurley gives up and leaves. We see Arzt in line.]
SECURITY AGENT: Next.
ARZT: [to the man in front of him] Now? You're taking the computer out now?
[Hurley sees a guy on a motorized scooter.]
HURLEY: Hey, old guy! I'll give you 500 bucks to borrow your scooter.
OLD SCOOTER MAN: I just had a hip replacement. I need this thing.
HURLEY: Okay, 1600 bucks.
[We see Hurley on the scooter, excusing his way through the airport. He gets to the gate where the door is closing.]
HURLEY: Hey, hold it! Hold the door! Hold the door! Hold the door! I've got to get on this flight!
GATE AGENT: Sir, the jetway's closed.
HURLEY: Please, for the love of all that is good and holy in the world, let me on this plane.
GATE AGENT: Alright, one second. [She picks up the phone] Hunter, this is Jenna, we've got one more... ta. [to Hurley] This is your lucky day.
[Hurley gives gate agent a big hug.]
[We see Hurley walking in the jungle, at night.]
HURLEY: [whispering] 15, 16, 23, 4-2, 4; 15, 16, 23, 4-2, 4; 15, 16, 23, 4-2, 4; 15, 16... [He takes a big breath where 8 would be.]
KATE: You say something?
KATE: I thought I heard 23.
HURLEY: Does that mean something to you?
HURLEY: That number? 23?
KATE: The guy who called the Feds on me, back in Australia, did it for a 23,000 dollar reward. Mean something to you?
HURLEY: Nah, it's just a number. We better catch up -- can barely see them.
[We see Jack and Locke walking along.]
LOCKE: We shouldn't be this close to each other, Jack.
JACK: If we blow up, we blow up. What the hell was all that about back there, John?
LOCKE: What was what about?
JACK: You asked me to let you go.
LOCKE: That's right.
JACK: That thing was taking you down the hole and you asked me to let you go.
LOCKE: It wasn't going to hurt me.
JACK: No, John, it was going to kill you.
LOCKE: I seriously doubt that.
JACK: Look, I need for you -- I need for you to explain to me what the hell's going on inside your head, John. I need to know why you believe that that thing wasn't gonna-
LOCKE: I believe that I was being tested.
LOCKE: Yeah, tested. I think that's why you and I don't see eye-to-eye sometimes, Jack -- because you're a man of science.
JACK: Yeah, and what does that make you?
LOCKE: Me, well, I'm a man of faith. Do you really think all this is an accident -- that we, a group of strangers survived, many of us with just superficial injuries? Do you think we crashed on this place by coincidence -- especially, this place? We were brought here for a purpose, for a reason, all of us. Each one of us was brought here for a reason.
JACK: Brought here? And who brought us here, John?
LOCKE: The Island. The Island brought us here. This is no ordinary place, you've seen that, I know you have. But the Island chose you, too, Jack. It's destiny.
JACK: Did you talk with Boone about destiny, John?
LOCKE: Boone was a sacrifice that the Island demanded. What happened to him at that plane was a part of a chain of events that led us here -- that led us down a path -- that led you and me to this day, to right now.
JACK: And where does that path end, John?
LOCKE: The path ends at the Hatch. The Hatch, Jack -- all of it -- all of it happened so that we could open the Hatch.
JACK: No, no, we're opening the Hatch so that we can survive.
LOCKE: Survival is all relative, Jack.
JACK: I don't believe in destiny.
LOCKE: Yes, you do. You just don't know it yet.
[At the raft, Walt is sleeping, Sawyer is at the radar equipment.]
MICHAEL: I turned it on a little while ago.
SAWYER: Sayid said every hour.
MICHAEL: Look, we're 15 miles out. We could be here for weeks. If that battery runs out...
SAWYER: The man said every hour.
[They switch the equipment on.]
MICHAEL: 5 minutes, no more.
SAWYER: Aye, aye. You know what I like about you, Mike? You've got the patience of a saint.
MICHAEL: Yeah? Why do you say that?
SAWYER: I've seen the way he talks to you -- the way he runs around, does whatever the hell he wants. I'd have showed him the back of my hand a long time ago.
MICHAEL: You would, huh?
SAWYER: A hell of a lot cheaper than a shrink.
MICHAEL: Is that what your father did to you? Show you the back of his hand?
SAWYER: My daddy never got a chance to beat me. He shot himself when I was 8.
MICHAEL: Is that why you want to die, man?
MICHAEL: Since the day you told me you wanted on this raft, I couldn't figure it out. Why does a guy who only cares about himself want to risk his life to save everyone else? The way I see it, there's only two choices -- you're either a hero or you want to die.
SAWYER: Well, I ain't no hero, Mike.
[We hear a blip on the radar screen.]
SAWYER: Is that what I think it is?
MICHAEL: Something's out there.
[Flashback - Locke in his wheelchair at the gate.]
GATE AGENT: I'm sorry, sir, but the special wheelchair that we use for loading the disabled passengers -- well, no one seems to know where it is right now. And unless we find it, I'm not sure we can get you on.
LOCKE: There's not another flight until tomorrow.
GATE AGENT: Yes, I'm aware of that, sir, but there's nothing I can...
JD: Look, I can get Michelle, we can carry him on. Would you mind if we carry you on?
LOCKE: No, that'll be fine.
[JD and Michelle carry Locke to his seat.]
MICHELLE: Here we go. Here's your seat.
JD: I'll get your bag, sir.
MICHELLE: If you need anything just press the call button.
LOCKE: Okay. Thank you.
[Locke pulls out what looks like the flight safety card from the seat back, and drops it. It's too far away for him to reach.]
[On-Island - We see Locke, Jack, Kate, and Hurley arrive at the Hatch.]
LOCKE: Hugo, take these extra sticks back a couple hundred yards.
HURLEY: Me? Oh, okay. Got it.
JACK: [handing him his pack] Be careful.
HURLEY: Can I have the flashlight? Because, uh, the torch with the dynamite thing, not making a whole lot of sense to me.
[Jack hands him the flashlight and takes the torch. Hurley exits.]
LOCKE: Kate, you run the fuse, Jack and I will rig the charges.
[In the distance we see the black smoke is coming from a fire on the beach. Sayid and Charlie approach the fire.]
CHARLIE: What the hell is that?
SAYID: There's no footprints, no tracks.
CHARLIE: This is it? This is the black smoke? Where are they?
SAYID: I don't know.
CHARLIE: [hearing the baby cry] She's here.
CHARLIE: You come out, right now!
SAYID: Calm down.
[Sounds of Danielle sobbing.]
SAYID: Danielle! I can hear you, come out. Please, he needs his mother.
[Danielle emerges from the bushes.]
DANIELLE: They were not here.
SAYID: Danielle, you have to give us the baby.
DANIELLE: I just wanted my Alex back. I thought if I gave them the baby...
SAYID: It's okay. I know. It's okay.
[Sayid takes the baby and gives it to Charlie.]
CHARLIE: I've got him. There never were any Others. You started the fires yourself!
DANIELLE: No, I heard them whispering.
CHARLIE: You're a nut job. You heard nothing!
DANIELLE: I heard them say they were coming for the child. The Others said they were coming for the boy.
CHARLIE: You're pathetic.
[We see Locke and Jack setting the charges.]
LOCKE: Wire. Hold that end. Now the fuse.
JACK: I'll do it.
[Jack pushes the fuse into the dynamite. They move away from the Hatch toward Kate.]
KATE: This is as far as it goes.
LOCKE: It's far enough. I'll light it. You take cover, there'll be enough burn time for me to get clear.
HURLEY: [off camera] Wait just a sec.
KATE: So, what was that about back there?
JACK: What was what about?
KATE: Putting the dynamite in your pack.
JACK: I made a judgment call.
KATE: We drew straws.
JACK: Sorry, I'm not going to let drawing straws make decisions like that for us, Kate.
KATE: You had no right to make that choice...
JACK: Everybody wants me to be a leader until I make a decision that they don't like. You want to keep second guessing me, Kate? That's your call. There's something that you need to know -- if we survive this, if we survive tonight -- we're going to have a Locke problem. And I have to know that you've got my back.
KATE: I've got your back.
LOCKE: Are we ready?
HURLEY: Wait a sec, wait a sec.
[Hurley drops his flashlight on the Hatch and notices the Numbers.]
HURLEY: [running] No. No, no, no. Stop! Stop, we can't do this! Stop! Wait! Stop we can't do this! Stop! Stop it! We can't! Stop! Don't light it! We can't do this! We can't do this! Stop! Wait! You've got to stop it!
[Locke lights the fuse.]
HURLEY: The Numbers are bad! Stop! What are you doing?! Why did you do that?!
[Hurley tries to stamp out the fuse.]
HURLEY: The Numbers are bad! The Numbers are bad!
JACK: Hurley! Hurley stop!
HURLEY: The Numbers are bad!
JACK: Hurley! Hurley, you've got to get back!
[Jack tackles Hurley right before the dynamite detonates.]
[We see the blip on the radar screen. Walt wakes up.]
SAWYER: It's closer. It's closer. Give me the damn flare gun.
MICHAEL: Hold on a sec.
SAWYER: I'm telling you, it's closer. I'm telling you, look.
MICHAEL: I know, okay. I've got one flare.
JIN: 아무 것도 안 보여.
MICHAEL: [to Jin] Okay, I know. You don't see anything. Okay.
SAWYER: What the hell are you expecting to see?! In case you haven't noticed, it's dark!
WALT: What is it? Is it a ship?
MICHAEL: We don't know, little man. We don't know.
JIN: Starboard? Port?
MICHAEL: Uh, Port. Port.
JIN: 반대로 가는데?
MICHAEL: Okay, what the hell am I supposed to do about it?
SAWYER: Hey, Han, you and Chewie want to slow down a second and talk to me here?! We have to fire the flare.
MICHAEL: We don't know what it is. It could be anything -- a piece of floating junk. We don't even know if Sayid's radar works!!
SAWYER: Have you ever known that guy to fix something up that don't work?
WALT: It's moving away.
SAWYER: Floating junk that knows how to steer, huh?
MICHAEL: We're moving! It doesn't make-
SAWYER: Look, are you going to give me the damn gun, or am I going to have to take it?!
MICHAEL: What are you going to do? Shoot me?
WALT: It's almost gone. -- C'mon.
MICHAEL: Please, god.
[Michael fires the flare. Jin lowers the sail.]
WALT: It's coming back! It's coming back!
[They all laugh and whoop. Jin shushes them. We hear a boat motor sound approaching. A floodlight turns on. The raft folks are excited. The boat kills it's motor.]
MICHAEL: Are we glad to see you!
BEARDED MAN: What's going on?! What are you folks doing this far out here?!
MICHAEL: We were, we were -- the plane crashed! We were on the Island for a month, man!
BEARDED MAN: Plane crash, huh? Well, how about that?
MICHAEL: We were on an Island -- oh, flight 815 -- hey, where are we?!
BEARDED MAN: Well, it's a good thing we found you.
MICHAEL: Yeah, yeah, we survived and there's a whole group of people on the...
BEARDED MAN: Well, ain't that something?
BEARDED MAN: Only, the thing is, we're going to have to take the boy.
MICHAEL: What? What'd you say?
BEARDED MAN: The boy, we're going to have to take him.
MICHAEL: Hey, what the hell's going on here? Who are you people?
BEARDED MAN: Just give us the boy.
[Two other men on the boat stand up.]
MICHAEL: I'm not giving you anybody.
BEARDED MAN: Well, alright then.
[The floodlight is turned off. Sawyer draws his gun, but is shot first by one of the two men, and falls into the water. Jin dives in after him. The two men jump onto the raft. One grabs Walt and the other fights with Michael.]
WALT: Dad! Dad!
[Michael gets pushed into the water. Walt is taken onto the boat screaming. A woman throws a Molotov cocktail from the steering compartment and the boat takes off. Michael dives under the water before the raft goes up in flames.]
WALT: Help me!
WALT: Help me! Dad! Please!
MICHAEL: Waaaaaaaaaaalt! Waaaahahahaaalt! No! Walt!
[Flashback - We see Claire at the caves. Charlie and Sayid enter with Aaron. Claire runs over. Sayid goes to the spring, Shannon runs to him. Charlie has a Mary statue in his pack.]
[Shot of people boarding, or on, the plane: Claire, Kate, Sawyer, Locke, Jack, Charlie, Sayid, Sun/Jin (with the watch), Michael/Walt, Shannon/Boone, Hurley (who gives Walt a thumbs-up, and then reads the comic book), Arzt helps Claire with her luggage.]
[On-Island - Back at the Hatch. They uncover it to reveal a long narrow passageway with a broken ladder going down.]
