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. In the case of a transcript of a film or television episode, ideally it is a verbatim record. Because closed-captioning is usually written separately, its text may have errors and does not necessarily reflect the true Canonical transcript.

Transcripts for Lost episodes up to and including "Enter 77" are based on the transcriptions by Lost-TV member Spooky with aid of DVR, and at times, closed captions for clarification. She and Lost-TV have generously granted us permission to share/host these transcripts at Lostpedia. Later transcripts were created by the Lostpedia community, unless stated otherwise below.

NARRATOR: For Hugo Reyes, crashing on the island left its own special burden.

HURLEY: Hey. A lot of bad stuff use to happen when I was around.

[Title Card - Hurley]

MARY-JO: And that makes tonight's mega lotto jackpot drawing: 4, 8, 15,

NARRATOR: And when his chicken franchise was destroyed by a meteor, he became convinced that his winnings were a curse.

HURLEY: Welcome!

NARRATOR: After the crash, Hugo tried to find the brighter side of the island.

HURLEY: Dudes, listen. If we're stuck here, then just surviving is not gonna cut it. We need some kind of relief, You know, we need some way we can, you know have fun.

NARRATOR: The island had a hold on all of the survivors. But one man was determined to uncover its deepest mystery.

[Title Card - Locke]

COOPER: Well, this is awkward.

NARRATOR: John Locke met his biological father. Only to learn that he was being used.

LOCKE: You stole my kidney.

COOPER: You needed a father figure and I needed a kidney. Get over it.

NARRATOR: When Locke confronted his father it ended in tragedy.


NARRATOR: He was left shattered and paralyzed. But he eventually made his way to Australia with a dream of conquering the outback.

LOCKE: Just put me on the bus, right now, I can do this.

TOUR GUIDE: No, you can't.

LOCKE: You don't know who you're dealing with! Don't ever tell me what I can't do; ever!

NARRATOR: When Oceanic 815 crashed on the island, John Locke rose from the wreckage and discovered he can walk again. This gave him faith that they were on the island for a purpose.

LOCKE: You think we crashed on this place by coincidence? Each one of us was brought here for a reason.

JACK: And who brought us here, John?

LOCKE: The island.

NARRATOR: But the survivors were not the first people drawn to the island. Teams of scientists from the Dharma Initiative came to the island in the 1970s. They built research stations in an attempt to understand the Island's special properties.

PIERRE: Unique electromagnetic functions.

NARRATOR: One station was called "The Swan".


NARRATOR: Where a man named Desmond spent years entering a code into a computer to keep a massive amount of electromagnetic energy at bay. One day, Desmond neglected to enter the code and caused Oceanic Flight 815 to crash on the island. The Island's original inhabitants were not pleased to have visitors.

BEN: Goodwin. You run, you can make that shore in an hour. Ethan, get up there to that fuselage, there may actually be survivors. Go!

[Title Card - The Others]

TOM: This is not your island. This our island.

NARRATOR: The oceanic survivors would soon meet the island's original inhabitants. They would call these people The Others.

BEN: Hello, Jack.

NARRATOR: Their leader was a man named Benjamin Linus. And he would do anything in his power to protect the island.

BEN: If any of them are stupid enough to get in your way, kill 'em.

[Title Card - Benjamin Linus]

HORACE: Hey, welcome to the island, man.

NARRATOR: Ben Linus came to the island as a young boy when his father joined the Dharma Initiative. But it was not a pleasant experience.

ROGER: I'm stuck here on this island with you.

NARRATOR: Then one day, Ben met the Others.

BEN: Take me with you.

RICHARD: You're gonna have to be very patient.

NARRATOR: So Ben waited. And when he became a young man.

BEN: Goodbye, Dad.

NARRATOR: He did whatever it took to help The Others protect the island from any outsiders; like the Dharma Initiative.

RICHARD: You want us to go get his body?

BEN: No, leave him out there.

NARRATOR: Ben joined the Others and rose to power as their leader. He raised a daughter and was a devoted servant to the island. But when John Locke arrived, Ben felt threatened by Locke's special communion with the island.

BEN: You've been here 80 days, John, I've been here my entire life. So how is it you think you know this island better than I do?

NARRATOR: Though not all the Others regarded Locke as a threat.

RICHARD: When word got back here that there was a man with a broken spine on the plane who could suddenly walk again, people here began to get very excited.

NARRATOR: Locke joined the Others and would soon become their new leader. But one of them wanted desperately to leave.

JULIET: I want to go home.

BEN: That's not our agreement. You need to stay here until your work is finished.

[Title Card - Juliet]

ETHAN: We're here.

NARRATOR: Juliet was a fertility specialist. She was recruited by the Others to find out why women on the island could not have children.

JULIET: I think it happens at conception. There is nothing I can do about it, at least not here.

NARRATOR: The situation appeared hopeless. So Juliet joined the Oceanic Survivors to find a way home.

SUN: I want to know about your research. What happens to pregnant women?

JULIET: They all die.

[Title Card - Sun and Jin]

NARRATOR: Sun and Jin were from Korea. And despite their very different backgrounds, they fell in love.

SUN: With this ring, I make my promises.

NARRATOR: Their wedding was joyful, but their marriage soon darkened. And Sun planned an escape from Jin when the two were in Sydney. Life on the island brought them closer.

KATE: You're pregnant.

NARRATOR: And they fell in love once again. But Sun's pregnancy put her in danger.

JULIET: You're wife is very sick. If she doesn't get off this island, she will die.

NARRATOR: But there was new hope for rescue. After nearly 90 days on the island, a freighter arrived off the coast. So, Jack led his people to a radio tower to make a call for help.

JACK: I'm one of the survivors of flight 815. Can you get a fix on our location?

MINKOWSKI: Yeah, we can.

NARRATOR: They believed they finally found a way home. A group from the freighter arrived by helicopter.

JACK: Who are you?

DANIEL: I'm Daniel Faraday. I'm here to rescue you.

[Title Card - Daniel Faraday]
