Season 1

BOONE: That's exactly what I was doing. I'm a lifeguard. I'm licensed.
JACK: Yeah, well, you need to seriously think about giving that license back.
-"Pilot, Part 1"

HURLEY: So, I was just looking inside the fuselage… It's pretty grim in there. You think we should do something about the, uh… [stopping and looking at Walt] b-o-d-y-s?
-"Pilot, Part 1"

VINCENT: Woof!
-"Pilot, Part 1"

SAYID: I fought in the Gulf War.
HURLEY: No way! I got a buddy who fought over there. He was in the 104th airborne. What were you - Air Force… Army?
SAYID: The Republican Guard.
-"Pilot, Part 2"

KATE: You decided to join us.
SAWYER: I'm a complex guy, sweetheart.
-"Pilot, Part 2"

HURLEY: Hey, guy, are you awake? Yo, there's a rescue plane! We're saved! Yaaay! [Mars doesn't react at all.] Yeah, he's out…
-"Pilot, Part 2"

LOCKE: Two players. Two sides. One is light…one is dark. Walt, do you want to know a secret?
-"Pilot, Part 2"

KATE: Where did that come from?
SAWYER: Probably Bear Village. How the hell do I know?
-"Pilot, Part 2"

SHANNON [translating]: I'm alone now. Uhm… On the island alone. Please, someone come. They others, they're… they're dead. I-it killed them. I-it killed them all.
-"Pilot, Part 2"

CHARLIE: Guys. Where are we?
-"Pilot, Part 2"

SAWYER: I'm not stopping. You all have a nice cookout.
SAYID: Excellent, walk through the jungle in the dark.
SAWYER: Oooo, afraid the trees are going to get us?
-"Tabula Rasa"

HURLEY: So how do you know it wasn't a dinosaur?
JACK: Because dinosaurs are extinct.
-"Tabula Rasa"

SAWYER: Yeah? How many you got? You're just not looking at the big picture, Doc.
You're still back in civilization.
JACK: Yeah? And where are you?
SAWYER: Me? I'm in the wild.
-"Tabula Rasa"

SHANNON: I wish he would just die already.
BOONE: Real humane, Shannon.
-"Tabula Rasa"

SAWYER: I was aiming for his heart.
JACK: You missed.
-"Tabula Rasa"

SAWYER: Better than the three of you wandering into the magic forest to bag a hunk of ham with nothing but a little bitty hunting knife? Hell no, it's the best idea I ever heard.
-"Walkabout"

LOCKE: Don't tell me what I can't do!
-"Walkabout"

LOCKE: But I've looked into the eye of this island, and what I saw... was beautiful.
-"White Rabbit"

HURLEY: Dogs can find pot and bombs, so I'm sure he can find water.
-"White Rabbit"

CHARLIE: I wouldn't worry about him. I mean, you tell me, who would you rather meet in a dark alley, whatever's out there, or that old geezer with his 400 knives? I mean, who packs 400 knives? Personally, I can only have space for 200, 300 at most.
-"White Rabbit"

SAYID: You go after him now, he'll give you nothing. But if you wait, a rat will always lead you to it's hole.
-"White Rabbit"

JACK:But if we can't live together - we're gonna die alone.
-"White Rabbit"

CHARLIE: If you guys are finished verbally copulating we should get a move on. There's a whole beach of people waiting for us to get some drinking water for them. And the great white hunter's getting restless.
-"House of the Rising Sun"

SAWYER: Well, that's the real trick, isn't it? We all pack up stakes for the caves and the next day a plane passes by, they're going to go on their merry way and be none the wiser. On the other hand, stay here, get eaten by boars, fall off a rock, not going to be anyone around to answer that 911 call.
-"House of the Rising Sun"

CHARLIE: Last night I had physical relations with a girl I didn't even know.
PRIEST: I see. Anything else?
CHARLIE: Yeah. Uh, right after that I had relations with another girl. Then straight after that I watched while they had relations with each other. You see, it's, it's my band, father, Drive Shaft. We've been playing the clubs in Manchester. And, uh, we've been getting some heat, a following, you know, and, uh, the girls. There's some real temptations that come with the territory, if you know what I mean.
-"The Moth"

LOCKE: You see this little hole? This moth's just about to emerge. It's in there right now, struggling. It's digging it's way through the thick hide of the cocoon. Now, I could help it, take my knife, gently widen the opening, and the moth would be free. But it would be too weak to survive. The struggle is nature's way of strengthening it.
-"The Moth"

KATE: Dear Mr. Sawyer, you don't know who I am but I know who you are and I know what you done. You had sex with my mother and then you stole my dad's money all away. So he got angry and he killed my mother and then he killed himself, too.
SAWYER: Don't stop now. You're just getting to the good part.
KATE: All I know is your name. But one of these days I'm going to find you and I'm going to give you this letter so you'll remember what you done to me. You killed my parents Mr. Sawyer
-"Confidence Man"

SAWYER: Baby, I am tied to a tree in a jungle of mystery. I just got tortured by a damn spinal surgeon and a gen-u-ine I-raqi. Of course, I'm serious. You're just not seeing the big picture here, Freckles. You really going to let that girl suffocate because you can't bring yourself to give me one little kiss? Hell, it's only first base. Lucky for you I ain't greedy.
-"Confidence Man"

SAWYER: You've been waiting for this, haven't you? Now you get to be the hero again, because that's what you do -- fix everything up all nice. Tell him to let go, Freckles. We already made out, what else I got to live for? Hey, Jack, there's something you should know -- if the tables were turned, I'd watch you die.
-"Confidence Man"

KATE: This letter wasn't written to you. You wrote this letter. Your name's not Sawyer, is it?
SAWYER: It was his name. He was a confidence man. Romanced my momma to get to the money, wiped them out clean, left a mess behind. So I wrote that letter. I wrote it knowing one day I'd find him. But that ain't the sad part. When I was 19, I needed 6 grand to pay these guys off I was in trouble with. So I found a pretty lady with a dumb husband who had some money. And I got them to give it to me. How's that for a tragedy? I became the man I was hunting. Became Sawyer. Don't you feel sorry for me.
-"Confidence Man"

DANIELLE: Where is Alex?
-"Solitary"

SAYID: What others? What is the Black Rock? Have you seen other people on this island?
DANIELLE: No, but I hear them. Out there, in the jungle. They whisper. You think I'm insane.
-"Solitary"

NADIA: You'll find me in the next life if not in this one.
-"Solitary"

SAWYER: Doctor playing golf. Woo, boy howdy, now I've heard everything. What's next, cop eating a donut?
-"Solitary"

CHARLIE: Dear diary, still on the bloody island. Today I swallowed a bug, love Claire.
-"Raised by Another"

CHARLIE: I have this dream. . . I'm driving a bus and my teeth start falling out. My mom's in the back eating biscuits. Everything smells of bacon. It's weird.
-"Raised by Another"

HURLEY: Uh-uh, nada. Everyone was asleep. So, I had an idea. I'm out here looking for some psycho with Scott and Steve, right? And I'm realizing who the hell are Scott and Steve?
-"Raised by Another"

MALKIN: This child parented by anyone else, anyone other than you -- danger surrounds this baby...
-"Raised by Another"

HURLEY: We've got a problem. The manifest, Jack, the census, the names of everyone who survived, all 46 of us. I interviewed everyone. Here, at the beach, got their names. One them, one of them isn't -- Jack! One of them isn't in the manifest. He wasn't on the plane.
-"Raised by Another"

WALT: He knows a lot more than how to catch a boar. Mr. Locke is a warrior. He can hunt, he can track stuff, and he's the only who brought knives. So, if it were me, I would listen to him.
-"All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues"

BOONE: Ever watch Star Trek?
LOCKE: Nah, not really.
BOONE: The crew guys that would go down to the planet with the main guys, the captain and the guy with the pointy ears, they always wore red shirts. And they always got killed.
-"All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues"

CHARLIE: No offense, mate, but if there's one person on this island I would put my absolute faith in to save us all it would be John Locke.
-"Hearts and Minds"

ETHAN: You bring her here. If you don't, I'm going to kill one of them. And then if you don't bring her back before sundown tomorrow I'll kill another, and another, another. One everyday. And Charlie, I'll kill you last.
-"Homecoming"

SAWYER: Guess old Steve drew the short straw.
HURLEY: Dude, that was Scott.
-"Homecoming"

LAURENCE: Secondly, you know, I've been doing this for awhile and a man who buys a compact 357 with hollow point loads -- he's not looking to scare or steal. He's looking to kill. But when it comes down to it if he finds he doesn't have what it takes to do the job...
SAWYER: Your sales pitch needs some work.
LAURENCE: What I'm saying is, you look a man in eye and you point a gun at him, you find who you really are, mate. And should you find you're not a killer, there's no refund.
-"Outlaws"

CHRISTIAN: Do you know why they call Australia "Down Under"? Because it's as close as you can get to Hell without being burned.
-"Outlaws"

CHRISTIAN: Don't let the air conditioning fool you, son. You are here, too. You are suffering. But, don't beat yourself up about it. It's fate. Some people are just supposed to suffer. That's why the Red Sox will never win the damn series. I have a son who's about your age. He's not like me, he does what's in his heart. He's a good man, maybe a great one. Right now, he thinks that I hate him. He thinks I feel betrayed by him. But what I really feel is gratitude, and pride because of what he did to me. What he did for me. It took more courage than I have. There's a pay phone over there. I could pick it up and I could call my son. I could tell him about all this. I could tell him that I love him. One simple phone call and I could fix everything.
-"Outlaws"

DUCKETT: It'll come back around.
-"Outlaws"

BOONE: Let me tell you about my sister. She likes older men, guys who can take care of her. My guess is, in this place, you fit the bill. She'll make you feel like the greatest guy ever while you get her food, or whatever it is that she needs. And when she gets whatever it is that she wants, she'll move on. When she does, don't take it personally, man.
-"...In Translation"

LOCKE: Everyone gets a new life on this island, Shannon. Maybe it's time you start yours.
-"...In Translation"

SAWYER: Folks down on the beach might have been doctors and accountants a month ago, but it's Lord of the Flies time, now.
-"...In Translation"

LOCKE: They've attacked us, sabotaged us, abducted us, murdered us. Maybe it's time we stop blaming us and start worrying about them. We're not the only people on this island and we all know it!
-"...In Translation"

LENNY: 4 8 15 16 23 42...
-"Numbers"

MARTHA: You make your own luck, Mr. Reyes. Don't blame it on the damn numbers.
-"Numbers"

HURLEY: Okay, that thing in the woods, maybe it's a monster, maybe it's a pissed off giraffe, I don't know. The fact that no one is even looking for us, yeah, that's weird, but I just go along with it because I'm along for the ride, good old fun time Hurley. Well guess what? Now, I want some friggin' answers.
-"Numbers"

BOONE: Theresa falls up the stairs, Theresa falls down the stairs.
-"Deus Ex Machina"

JACK: Boone, listen to me. Listen! You are not going to die. I'm going to fix this, okay? I am going to save you.
-"Do No Harm"

SARAH: Thank you. Wow, can I get another microphone? I think this one's been drinking. A little over two years ago, I blew a tire out -- flipped over the center divider into oncoming traffic, and was hit head-on by an SUV. My back was broken. They all said it was irreparable. And then there was Jack. And he promised he would fix me, because that's the kind of guy he is. Because you are the most committed man I have ever known -- because you fixed me, I will dance at our wedding. To Jack, my hero, Jack.
-"Do No Harm"

JACK: I didn't write any vows. I've been trying to for a month, but I couldn't. So I started to wonder why that was. And as time went on it only got worse -- because I'm, because I'm not good at letting go. Or maybe I'm afraid of what'll happen if I fail. But I know one thing. I would've never been able to write anything as beautiful as what you just said. And last night, Sarah, when you were talking about the accident -- you got it all wrong. I didn't fix you. You fixed me. I love you, Sarah, and I always will.
-"Do No Harm"

BOONE: Tell Shannon -- tell Shannon -- tell...
-"Do No Harm"

SAYID: I didn't know Boone very well, and for that I am sorry. On our 6th day here a woman named Joanna died. She drowned. And Boone was the first one into the water. I didn't know him, but I remember his courage. And I know he will be missed.
-"The Greater Good"

WALT: Don't open it.
LOCKE: What'd you say?
WALT: Don't open it, Mr. Locke. Don't open that thing.
-"Born to Run"

DANIELLE: The Others are coming.
-"Exodus, Part 1"

ROUSSEAU: You have three choices: run, hide... or die.
-"Exodus, Part 1"

SAWYER: Jack. About a week before we all got on the plane I got to talking to this man in a bar in Sydney. He was American, too. A doctor. I've been on some benders in my time, but this guy -- he was going for an all time record. It turns out this guy has a son -- his son's a doctor, too. They had some kind of big time falling out. The guy knew it was his fault even though his son was back in the States thinking the same damn thing. See, kids are like dogs, you knock them around enough they'll think they did something to deserve it. Anyway, there's a pay phone in this bar. And this guy, Christian, tells me he wishes he had the stones to pick up the phone, call his kid, tell him he's sorry, that he's a better doctor than he'll ever be -- he's proud, and he loves him. I had to take off, but something tells me he never got around to making that call. Small world, huh?
-"Exodus, Part 1"

HURLEY: How about I just call you by your first name?
ARZT: How about you don't.
HURLEY: Why not? I remember it from the plane's manifest. I think Leslie's a bitchin' name.
-"Exodus, Part 1"

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.
-"Exodus, Part 2"

HAWAIIAN SHIRT [subtitled]: 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.
-"Exodus, Part 2"

HURLEY: You have some...Arzt...on you.
-"Exodus, Part 2"

MICHAEL: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALT!
-"Exodus, Part 2"

LOCKE: 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.
-"Exodus, Part 2"

LOCKE: 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.
-"Exodus, Part 2"

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.
-"Exodus, Part 2"

HURLEY: The Numbers are bad. The Numbers are bad.
-"Exodus, Part 2"

LOCKE: 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.
-"Exodus, Part 2"

Season 2

HURLEY: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. 4, 8, we're dead, 15, doomed and dead, 16, 23, 42...
-"Man of Science, Man of Faith"

LOCKE: I doubt it. In fact, you're right. The safest thing is to stay here -- wait for morning -- wait for these Others, to see if they show up -- wait for the brave folks on the raft to bring help -- but me, I'm tired of waiting.
-"Man of Science, Man of Faith"

DESMOND: Jack, I'm Desmond. Good luck, brother. See you in another life, yeah?
-"Man of Science, Man of Faith"

DESMOND: Are you...are you him?
LOCKE: Yes. Yes I am.
DESMOND: I can't believe it, you are finally here.
LOCKE: Well, here I am.
-"Adrift"

MICHAEL: 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.
-"Adrift"

SAWYER: They found us because they were looking for us, for Walt.
MICHAEL: Don't you ever say his name again, ever.
SAWYER: Oh, what are you gonna do, splash me?
-"Adrift"

JIN: Others! Others! Others!
-"Adrift"

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 uh, 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 had to have 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!
-"Orientation"

DESMOND: Kelvin -- he comes running out of the jungle -- hurry, hurry, come with me. He brings me down here. The first thing he does -- because there's beeping already -- he types in the code, he pushes the button, and it stops. What was all that about, I say. Just saving the world, he says.
JACK: Saving the world?
DESMOND: His words, not mine. So I started pushing the button, too. And we saved the world together for awhile, and that was lovely. Then Kelvin died, and now here I am all alone. The end.
-"Orientation"

LOCKE: Why do you find it so hard to believe?
JACK: Why do you find it so easy?
LOCKE: It's never been easy!
-"Orientation"

LOCKE: We're going to need to watch that again.
-"Orientation"

JACK: 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: 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.
-"Orientation"

LOCKE: I can't do this alone, Jack. I don't want to. It's a leap of faith, Jack.
-"Orientation"

JIN: Everything's going to change. Have a cluckity-cluck-cluck day, Hugo.
-"Everybody Hates Hugo"

CARMEN: Oh, that must be Jesus. Hola, momento. Yes, it is Jesus, he wants to know what color car you want.
-"Everybody Hates Hugo"

CHARLIE: Quite simply, John, there are a lot of secrets around here, and I'm tired of being at the bloody kid's table. I got Claire's baby back. I didn't go swanning off to the Black Rock on the bloody A-Team mission, but I would have if someone had asked me. I think I'm entitled to some sodding answers around here.
-"Everybody Hates Hugo"

MICHAEL: Everything's cool. We had a talk and they believe we were on the plane, too.
SAWYER: Swell, I guess we can all sue Oceanic together.
-"Everybody Hates Hugo"

ANA-LUCIA: Shut up. 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?
SAWYER: I say you first.
-"Everybody Hates Hugo"

HURLEY: Dude, dogs will eat anything. When I was a kid, my dog, Buster -- I had this drawer where I'd throw in all my change, right -- and I guess there were some Smarties in there -- so, like, the next day, Buster craps out a $1.35 in nickels.
-"...And Found"

ANA LUCIA: They came the first night that we got here. They took 3 of us. Nothing happened for 2 weeks, then they came back. They took 9 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 1 gun and 1 bullet is going to stop them -- think again. So shut your mouth and keep moving.
-"Abandoned"

GOODWIN: We should let him go. We're not savages.
ANA: If I were a savage I would have cut off his finger already. That's tomorrow.
-"The Other 48 Days"

ANA: What, you're talking now?
EKO: It's been 40 days.
ANA: You've been waiting 40 days to talk?
EKO: You waited 40 days to cry.
-"The Other 48 Days"

SAYID: What good it would be to kill you if we're both already dead?
-"Collision"

SAYID: Shannon and I were strangers. We never would have met if -- We wouldn't even have spoken if -- But we did meet and we did speak. At least -- I loved her.
-"What Kate Did"

LOCKE: Somebody made this film. Someone else cut this piece out. We crash -- two halves of the same plane fall in different parts of the island -- you're over there, I'm over here. And now, here's the missing piece right back where it belongs. What are the odds?
EKO: Don't mistake coincidence for fate.
-"What Kate Did"

KATE: Can you hear me? Sawyer? Wayne? [Sawyer stirs] I'm probably crazy and this doesn't matter, but maybe you're in there somehow. But you asked me a question. You asked me why I -- why I did it. It wasn't because you drove my father away, or the way you looked at me, or because you beat her. It's because I hated that you were a part of me -- that I would never be good. That I would never have anything good. And every time that I look at Sawyer -- every time I feel something for him -- I see you, Wayne. It makes me sick.
-"What Kate Did"

EKO: Go. Go. And tell your friends that I let you live -- that Mr. Eko let you live.
-"The 23rd Psalm"

LOCKE: Does any of this look familiar from when you were coming back?
SAWYER: Well, yeah, there's my favorite leaf. How could I forget this place?
-"The Hunting Party"

MR. 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? Open the door to rooms you got no business opening? 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 because we let you live on it.
-"The Hunting Party"

JACK: How long do you think it would take to train an army?
-"The Hunting Party"

SAWYER: You even made Locke take a swing at you. Hell, that's like getting Gandhi to beat his kids.
-"The Long Con"

SAWYER:New sheriff in town, boys! You all best get used to it.
-"The Long Con"

"HENRY GALE": Please, just cut me down. My name is Henry Gale, I'm from Minnesota!
-"One of Them"

SAYID: 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.
-"One of Them"

SAYID: 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!
-"One of Them"

SAYID: Do Jack and Locke know about this?
ANA-LUCIA: Jack and Locke are a little too busy worrying about Locke and Jack.
-"The Whole Truth"

BEN: 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?
-"The Whole Truth"

SAYID: We did find your balloon, Henry Gale, exactly how you described it. We also found the grave you described -- your wife's grave. The grave you said you dug with your own bare hands. It was all there. Your whole story -- your alibi -- it was true. But still I did not believe it to be true. So I dug up that grave and found that there was not a woman inside. There was a man. A man named Henry Gale.
-"Lockdown"

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

LIBBY: Where are you going?
HURLEY: 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.
-"Dave"

KATE: I'm sorry I kissed you.
JACK: I'm not.
-"S.O.S."

LOCKE: I was trapped under that blast door, helpless. You could've crushed my skull, but you didn't do a thing. Why didn't you?
GALE: Because you're one of the good ones, John.
-"Two for the Road"

LOCKE: Why would your own people want to kill you?
GALE: Because the man in charge -- he's a great man, John, a brilliant man -- but he's not a forgiving man. He'll kill me because I failed, John. I failed my mission.
-"Two for the Road"

MICHAEL: They keep it guarded 24/7. Two guards, two guns. And two guns is all I saw. They're barely armed. Most of them are old and half of them are women. I wanted -- I couldn't save him. So I came back to tell you -- tell you that we can take them. As soon as I get my strength back, I will take us back there. And we are going to get my boy back.
-"Two for the Road"

EKO: Would you like to watch that again?
LOCKE: No. No, I've seen enough.
-"?"

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.
-"?"

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.
-"Three Minutes"

MS. KLUGH: I'm writing 4 names down -- 4 of your friends. We need you to bring them here. You have to bring only these 4 people, Michael. Just them. If you don't bring all the people on the list, you'll never see Walt again.
-"Three Minutes"

JACK: Ana Lucia Cortez was -- before we crashed she was a police officer. I don't think it was easy for her being here. But I think she did the best she could. She was a woman of few words, and I'm going to follow her example. Rest in peace, Ana.
-"Three Minutes"

HURLEY: Libby was -- she was -- she -- Libby was a psychologist, or psychiatrist -- one of those. Either way, she probably helped a lot of people. She helped me. She was my friend. It's not fair that this happened to her. It's not. [to Michael] I'm going with you. Goodbye, Libby.
-"Three Minutes"

JACK: Why would he lie to us?
SAYID: Because I believe a father would do anything for his son. Because I believe Michael may have freed Henry. And because I believe he is leading you into a trap.
JACK: You believe a lot, Sayid.
SAYID: I also believed that Henry was one of them.
-"Three Minutes"

DESMOND: 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 snow globe. There's no outside world. There's no escape.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

DESMOND: You're so sure it's not real, then just stop pushing the button!
LOCKE: Well, I have. Except, unfortunately, someone else decided to start. So you're going to sober up. We're going to get a good night's sleep. Tomorrow we're going to find out what happens if that button doesn't get pushed.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

SAWYER: When the Doc told me you all got caught in a net I thought he meant, uh—something else.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

HURLEY: Did that bird just say my name?
SAWYER: Yeah, it did. Right before it crapped gold.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

DESMOND: How did you find me?
PENELOPE: I have a lot of money, Desmond. With enough money and determination you can find anyone.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

LOCKE: So what did one snowman say to other snowman?
DESMOND: Smells like carrots.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

EKO: Charlie, John has locked me out of the Hatch. And I believe he is doing this because he is going to stop pushing that button. And, Charlie, I am absolutely certain that if he is successful, in 90 minutes everyone on this island will die.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

INMAN: See that brown stain, there? That's Radzinsky. He put a shotgun in his mouth when I was asleep. The bitch of it was, I only had a 108 minutes to bury the poor bastard.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

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.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

DESMOND: I think I crashed your plane.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

PENELOPE: Dearest Des, I am writing this letter to you as you leave for prison. And I've hidden in the one place you would turn to in a moment of great desperation. I know you go away with the weight of what happened on your shoulders. And I know the only person who can ever take it off is you. Please don't give up, Des. Because all we really need to survive is one person who truly loves us. And you have her. I will wait for you. Always. I love you, Pen.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

DESMOND: 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.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

MICHAEL: Who are you people?
BEN: We're the good guys, Michael.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

MICHAEL: How do you know I won't tell people about where I was?
BEN: Maybe you will, maybe you won't. But it won't matter. Once you leave, you'll never be able to get back here. And my hunch is you won't say a word to anybody because if you do, people will find out what you did to get your son back.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

PENELOPE: Hello.
MAN #2: Ms. Widmore?
PENELOPE: Yes.
MAN #2: It's us. I think we found it.
-"Live Together, Die Alone, Part 1"

Season 3

BEN: You run and you can make that shore line in an hour. Ethan, get up there to that fuselage. There may actually be survivors; and you're one of them. A passenger -- in shock -- come up with an adequate story if they ask. Stay quiet if they don't. Listen, learn, don't get involved. I want lists in three days. Go.
-"A Tale of Two Cities"

BEN: So I guess I'm out of the book club.
-"A Tale of Two Cities"

BEN: I brought you here so you'd look out at the water and feel comforted -- comforted that your friends were looking out at the same ocean. I gave you the dress so that you'd feel like a lady. And I wanted you to eat your food with a real live fork and feel civilized. I did all those things so that you'd have something nice to hold on to. Because, Kate, the next two weeks are going to be very unpleasant.
-"A Tale of Two Cities"

COLLEEN: I know you, Sun-Hwa Kwon. And I know you're not a killer. But despite what you may think, I'm not the enemy. We are not the enemy. But if you shoot me, that's exactly what we'll become.
-"The Glass Ballerina"

BEN: Your flight crashed on September 22nd, 2004. Today is November 29th. That means you've been on our island for 69 days. Yes, we do have contact with the outside world, Jack. That's how we know that during those 69 days your fellow Americans re-elected George W. Bush; Christopher Reeve has passed away; the Boston Red Sox won the World Series.
-"The Glass Ballerina"

CHARLIE: What, you can't speak John? You're mute? I am sorry about that. So where are Eko and Desmond? Are they off being mute and building structures, as well? I know; you can't speak. You need to speak? To me? What do you want to--? Sand? You need to speak to the sand? Trees? Yeah, I've heard they're wonderful conversationalists. Hey! I don't understand! Who do you need to speak to? Church? Sky? Island? Island? You need to speak to the island?
-"Further Instructions"

BOONE: Hi, John. It's good to see you again. What's that, John? Oh, you're sorry. That's okay. I was the sacrifice the island demanded. Don't worry; you'll speak when you have something worth saying. I'm here to help you find your way again. So you can bring the family back together. Come on, I want to show you something.
-"Further Instructions"

LOCKE: Yeah. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for the food and the friends. And thanks for the rain today so that Adam will stop grumbling about the drought [people chuckle]. And for me, thank you for helping me stop being so angry. And for helping me find a real family -- because they're a hell of a lot better than the one I used to have. So, let's eat. Amen.
-"Further Instructions"

CHARLIE:Hairspray? Now, I hate to be the one to point this out to you...
LOCKE: It's not for me.
-"Further Instructions"

CHARLIE: You know, when I used to get high, I'd watch nature programs on the Beeb. Polar bears are meant to be quite clever. Very clever. They're like the Einsteins of the bear community.
-"Further Instructions"

SAWYER: Run. Hurry! What the hell are you doing? Kate?! Damn it, Freckles, go. Every man for himself.
KATE: Live together, die alone.
-"Every Man for Himself"

JACK: Who's x-rays are those? Outside? Those are spinal x-rays. They belong to a man about 40 years old. And whoever he is, he has a very large tumor on his L-4 vertebrae. And I just happen to be a spinal surgeon. So, you tell me, Juliet, who am I here to save?
-"Every Man for Himself"

SAWYER: That little place you always wanted, George?
BEN: Sorry?
SAWYER: What, don't you read? It's from Of Mice and Men. You'd like it -- puppies get killed.
-"Every Man for Himself"

BEN: Two days after I found out I had a fatal tumor on my spine, a spinal surgeon fell out of the sky. And if that's not proof of God, I don't know what is.
-"The Cost of Living"

EKO: I ask for no forgiveness, Father. For I have not sinned. I have only done what I needed to do to survive. A small boy once asked me if I was a bad man. If I could answer him now, I would tell him that when I was a young boy, I killed a man to save my brother's life. I am not sorry for this. I am proud of this! I did not ask for the life that I was given. But it was given, nonetheless. And with it...I did my best.
-"The Cost of Living"

YEMI: You speak to me as if I were your brother.
-"The Cost of Living"

JACK: No, I think you misunderstood me. I didn't say I was gonna do it. I just wanted you to understand how you're gonna die.
-"I Do"

BEN: Well, Jack. I'm very disappointed in your decision.
JACK: Well, Ben. At least you won't have to be disappointed for very long.
-"I Do"

KATE: Edward, please. I know you don't want to spend the rest of your life chasing me. Please, I love this guy. Just let me go.
EDWARD MARS: I'll tell you what. If you can really stay put? Really settle down? Then I'll stop chasing you. But you and I both know that's not gonna happen.
-"I Do"

KATE: It's not a joke. I almost had a baby, Kevin. Me, a baby! I can't do this! Taco night?! I don't do taco night!
-"I Do"

JACK: Kate, dammit, RUN!
-"I Do"

SAWYER: Don't get mad at me just because you were dumb enough to fall for the old Wookiee prisoner gag.
-"Not in Portland"

ROOM 23 VIDEO:God loves you as he loved Jacob
-"Not in Portland"

ALPERT: Well, actually we're not quite in Portland.
-"Not in Portland"

DESMOND: You don't want to know what happened to me when I turned that key!
-"Flashes Before Your Eyes"

WIDMORE: This is a 60 year MacCutcheon, named after Anderson MacCutcheon, esteemed Admiral from the Royal Navy. He retired with more medals than any man before or since -- moved to the highlands to see out his remaining years. Admiral MacCutcheon was a great man, Hume. This was his crowning achievement. This swallow is worth more than you could make in a month. To share it with you would be a waste, and a disgrace to the great man who made it -- because you, Hume, will never be a great man.
-"Flashes Before Your Eyes"

DONOVAN: There's no such thing as time travel, Des. From what I understand true love can be just as unlikely. So, if you love Penny, stop messing about and marry her.
-"Flashes Before Your Eyes"

MS. HAWKING: Well, I know your name as well as I know that you that don't ask Penny to marry you. In fact, you break her heart. Well, breaking her heart is, of course, what drives you in a few short years from now to enter that sailing race -- to prove her father wrong -- which brings you to the island where you spend the next 3 years of your life entering numbers into the computer until you are forced to turn that failsafe key. And if you don't do those things, Desmond David Hume, every single one of us is dead. So give me that sodding ring.
-"Flashes Before Your Eyes"

MS. HAWKING: You may not like your path, Desmond, but pushing that button is the only truly great thing that you will ever do.
-"Flashes Before Your Eyes"

DESMOND: When I saw the lightening hit the roof you were electrocuted. And when you heard Claire was in the water you -- you drowned trying to save her. I dove in myself so you never went in. I've tried, brother. I've tried twice to save you, but the universe has a way of course correcting and -- and I can't stop it forever. I'm sorry. I'm sorry because no matter what I try to do you're going to die, Charlie.
-"Flashes Before Your Eyes"

JACK: I'd be more impressed with you people if you had a good surgeon.
BEN: We had an excellent surgeon, Jack. His name was Ethan.
-"Stranger in a Strange Land"

JACK: You've got a very serious infection, Ben. That infected tissue needs to be reincised, debreeded; and you need be closely monitored from here on out. There might be nerve damage or any number of other complications. You might not walk again.
BEN: Your bedside manner leaves something to be desired.
-"Stranger in a Strange Land"

TRICIA: It's everyone's fantasy -- winning the lottery -- untold millions falling into your lap overnight. What would you do with all that money? Well, one such lucky winner recently bought a chicken shack. I'm Tricia Tanaka with Hugo Reyes, winner of a record 114 million dollars, outside Mr. Cluck's Chicken in Diamond Bar which will be having its grand re-opening tomorrow. So, Hugo, I think the question on everyone's mind is: why did you buy Mr. Cluck's? HURLEY: Uh, I like chicken.
-"Tricia Tanaka Is Dead"

HURLEY: I'll give you a thousand dollars right now if admit that my dad told you to say this stuff.
LYNN: The mystic arts are not subject to bribes. How dare you...
HURLEY: Ten thousand.
LYNN: Your dad put me up to it.
-"Tricia Tanaka Is Dead"

HURLEY: Dude, that beer's been sitting there since before Rocky III, maybe even II. It's probably poison by now.
SAWYER: Skeletor seems to like it. Bottoms up.
HURLEY: That's not cool, dude. That guy had a mom, a family, and friends. Oh, and a name. It's Roger Workman.
SAWYER: It's Work Man, you blockhead. That's his job. He was a DHARMA janitor.
HURLEY: Yeah, well you should still respect the dead.
-"Tricia Tanaka Is Dead"

SAWYER: We need to do a quick prid quo first. I know I’ve been gone a while and you thought the General Store was having a “going-out-of-business” sale. But now I’m back. And I want what’s mine.
-"Enter 77"

MIKHAIL: My name is Mikhail Bakunin and I am the last remaining member of the DHARMA Initiative.
-"Enter 77"

CHANG: Has there be an incursion on this station by the Hostiles? If so, enter 77.
-"Enter 77"

SAYID: What happened to the DHARMA Initiative?
MIKHAIL: They’re all dead, of course. They foolishly initiated a war against The Hostiles, the purge they called it.
-"Enter 77"

LOCKE: Pardon me for not knowing they had a... sonic weapon fence.
-"Par Avion"

SAYID: The more I learn about your people, the more I suspect you’re not as omniscient as you’d have us believe. Don’t speak to us as if you know us.
MIKHAIL: Of course I don’t know you, Sayid Jarrah. How could I? And you, Kate Austen, are a complete stranger to me. But you John Locke, you I might have a fleeting memory of, but I must be confused, because the John Locke I know was paral—
-"Par Avion"

CLAIRE'S MESSAGE: To whom it may concern, we are survivors of Oceanic Flight 815. We have survived on this island for 80 days. We were 6 hours into the flight when the pilot said we were off course and turned back towards Fiji. We hit turbulence and crashed. We’ve been waiting here, all this time, waiting for rescue that has not come. We do not know where we are, we only know you have not found us. We’ve done our best to live on this island. Some of us have come to accept that we may never leave it. Not all of us have survived since the crash, but there is new life too, and with it, there is hope. We are alive. Please don’t give up on us.
-"Par Avion"

LOCKE: The Man from Tallahassee? What is that some kind of code?
BEN: No John, unfortunately we don't have a code for "there is a man in my closet holding a gun to my daughter's head". Although we obviously should.
-"The Man from Tallahassee"

BEN: So tell me, John. How do you expect to pilot our submarine? I mean, it's a complicated piece of machinery. You don't just press "submerge".
-"The Man from Tallahassee"

BEN: And now you have a choice. Because if you stop and if you think, I can show you things. Things I know you want to see very badly. Let me put it so you'll understand. Picture a box. You know something about boxes, don't you, John? What if I told you that somewhere on this island, there's a very large box... and whatever you imagined, whatever you wanted to be in it, when you opened that box, there it would be. What would you say about that, John?
LOCKE: I'd say I hope that box is big enough to imagine yourself up a new submarine
-"The Man from Tallahassee"

HURLEY: Dude.... Nikki's dead.
SAWYER: ... Who the hell's Nikki?
-"Exposé"

NIKKI: Razzle-frickin'-dazzle.
-"Exposé"

NIKKI: Wow. So our carry-on bag fell from the sky, opened a manhole, crawled inside and closed the doors behind itself? You don't wanna climb up to a plane, but now you wanna climb down a ladder into a dark tunnel. I don't think so.
-"Exposé"

NIKKI: Para...lysed.
-"Exposé"

JULIET: We have cameras on the cages, Kate. All of them. He saw you, you and Sawyer. The reason Jack told you not to come back, wasn't because he didn't want you to get hurt, it was because you broke his heart.
-"Left Behind"

SAWYER: Well if it ain't three men and a baby... I counted Hugo twice. Oh what, come on I used your name.
-"One of Us"

JULIET: You know its interesting, that you two are now the camp's moral police. I'm curious, Sayid, how long was it before you told everyone on that beach exactly how many people you've tortured in your life. Do they know about Basra? And I'm sure the first thing you did when you got here, James, was to gather everyone in a circle, and tell them about the man you shot in cold blood the night before you got on the plane. So why don't we just skip the part where you two pretend to be righteous. I'm taking that medication back to Claire. And you're gonna let me. Because if she doesn't get it, she's gonna die. And the last thing, that either of you need right now, is more blood on your hands.
-"One of Us"

SAWYER: You two arguing over who's your favorite Other?
-"Catch-22"

JACK: So where'd you get the table?
SAWYER: Don't you recognize it? Fell out of the purple haze. If we don't play every hundred and eight minutes, the Island's gonna explode!
-"Catch-22"

SUN: What if, what if the Others want my baby? He's been there alone for over a week. How do we know he isn't working with them?
-"D.O.C."

JULIET: [Pauses] Once upon a time, I told women that they were pregnant and their faces, it was the best news they ever got in their entire life. Then I came here. I've lost...nine...patients in the last three years. I'm helping you because I want to tell you that you and your husband got pregnant before you came here. I'm helping you because I wanna give good news again.
-"D.O.C."

JULIET: Ben, its six AM on Saturday morning. Kwon is pregnant, the fetus is healthy and was conceived on-Island with husband, he was sterile before they got here. I'm still working on getting samples from the other women, I should have Austen's soon. I'll report back when I know more...I hate you.
-"D.O.C."

PARACHUTIST: No. No, Flight 815 they, they found the plane. There were no survivors. They were all dead.
-"D.O.C."

LOCKE: Because a few hours ago I snuck into Ben's tent and kidnapped him. I tied him up, dragged him off into the jungle.
SAWYER: And you came all the way back here to tell me this because...?
LOCKE: Because this is the same man who tortured you, beat you, humiliated you. And I want you, to kill him.
-"The Brig"

BEN: The magic box is a metaphor, John. I can't show you anything until you can show me that you're ready and willing to be one of us. When people join us here on this Island, they need to make a gesture of free will, of commitment. That's why you're gonna have to kill your father.
-"The Brig"

RICHARD: It's beautiful isn't it. No matter how much time you spend on the Island you just never get tired of this view.
-"The Brig"

RICHARD: What you got there?
BEN: It's a birthday present. Mine just happens to be today. You do remember birthdays, don't you Richard?
-"The Man Behind the Curtain"

BEN: Something you should know, John, before we go. Whether or not you think he's the Wizard of Oz, I can assure you that Jacob is very, very real. And we're gonna go see him, and he's not gonna like it. In fact, I have a feeling he's going to be very...angry. And that's why my hand was shaking, because this is not a man you go and see. This is a man who summons you.
-"The Man Behind the Curtain"

ROGER: Wow...It's your birthday. Sorry I forgot. Kinda hard to celebrate on the day you killed your mom. She was just seven months pregnant. We went for a hike, but you had to come early. Now, she's gone. And I'm stuck here on this island...with you. Happy birthday, Ben.
-"The Man Behind the Curtain"

JACOB: Help me.
-"The Man Behind the Curtain"

BEN: This is where I came from, John. These are my people. The DHARMA Initiative. They came here seeking harmony, but they couldn't even coexist with the Island's original inhabitants. And when it became clear that one side had to go, one side had to be purged, I did what I had to do. I was one of the people that was smart enough to make sure that I didn't end up in that ditch. Which makes me considerably smarter than you, John.
-"The Man Behind the Curtain"

JACK: ...For the very first time we know exactly what they want, when they're coming to get it, and they have no idea that we're gonna be waiting for 'em. So Juliet's gonna mark the tents with the white rocks just like she was told to, but there's not going to be any pregnant women inside; there's gonna be plenty of what we just used on that tree. So tomorrow night we stop hiding, we stop running, we stop living in fear of them, because when they show up, we're gonna blow 'em all to hell.

She was raised in Bromsgrove. Did her undergraduate studies at Kent. Took her PhD in Cultural Anthropology at Oxford. She's here with two other team members and a pilot. Their names Daniel Faraday, Miles Straume, Frank Lapidus.

SAWYER: What the hell are you doing out?
BEN: See you guys at dinner.

GAULT: Some of my crew has been dealing with... what might best be described as a heightened case of cabin fever.
-"Ji Yeon"

GAULT: The wreckage was obviously staged. Now can you imagine what kind of resources and manpower go into pulling off a feat of that magnitude? Faking the recovery of a plane crash? Putting 324 families through a grieving process based on a lie? But what's even more disturbing... where exactly does one come across 324 dead bodies? And that, Mr. Jarrah, Mr. Hume, is just one of the many reasons we want Benjamin Linus.

JIN: (in Korean) Don't rush me. I've only been married two months.

SUN: (in Korean) Jin... You were right. It's a girl. The delivery was hard on me... The doctor said I was calling out for you... I wish you could've been there. Jin... She's beautiful. Ji Yeon. I named her just like you wanted. I miss you so much. I miss you so much.

MILES: Your name isn't Kevin. Don't worry. Eighty percent of the people on this boat are lying about something. Orange?-"Meet Kevin Johnson"

SAYID: Why are you on this boat?
MICHAEL: I'm here to die.
-"Meet Kevin Johnson"

MILES: Linus will find a way to get it.
SAWYER: And how will he do that?
MILES: He wants to survive. And considering a week ago you had a gun to his head, and tonight he's eating pound cake... I'd say he's a guy who gets what he wants.
-"Meet Kevin Johnson"

TOM: In a few days, a freighter is porting in Fiji. It's Widmore's boat. We have reason to believe he's finally found the coordinates of the Island, and he's heading right for it. So congratulations, Michael. Your shore leave is over. You just got a job on that boat. Meet Kevin Johnson.

KEAMY: What kind of guy do you think I am?
-"The Shape of Things to Come"

BEN: Martin Christopher Keamy--former first sergeant, United States Marine Corps, served with distinction from 1996 to 2001, but since then, you've worked with a number of mercenary organizations, specifically in Uganda. So I know exactly what kind of man you are, Mr. Keamy, and we can dispense with the formalities.

WIDMORE: I know who you are, boy. What you are. I know that everything you have you took from me. So... Once again I ask you: Why are you here?
BEN: I'm here, Charles, to tell you that I'm going to kill your daughter. Penelope, is it? And once she's gone... once she's dead... then you'll understand how I feel. And you'll wish you hadn't changed the rules.

WIDMORE: That Island's mine Benjamin. It always was. It will be again.-"The Shape of Things to Come"

ROSE: Not here. Here, they get better.

HURLEY: I was happy, too, Jack... for a while, anyway. Then I saw Charlie. He likes to sit with me on the bench out on the front lawn. It's pretty cool, actually.
-"Something Nice Back Home"

JACK: Why aren't you taking your meds?
HURLEY: 'Cause we're dead... all of us. All the Oceanic Six--we're all dead. We never got off that island.
-"Something Nice Back Home"

HORACE:I'm not making any sense, am I?
LOCKE: No.
HORACE: That's probably because I've been dead for 12 years.
-"Cabin Fever"

RICHARD: Are you sure the knife belongs to you, John?
-"Cabin Fever"

GELLERT: I'm gonna tell you something--something I wish someone had told me at your age. You might not want to be that guy in the labs surrounded by test tubes and beakers, but that's who you are, John. You can't be the prom king. You can't be the quarterback. You can't be a superhero.
JOHN: Don't tell me what I can't do.
-"Cabin Fever"

BEN: Destiny, John, is a fickle bitch.
-"Cabin Fever"

LOCKE: Wha--what's a walkabout?
ABADDON: It's a journey of self-discovery. You go out into the Australian Outback with nothing more than a knife and your wits.

LOCKE: He wants us to move the island.

MS. DECKER: Okay. Um, they're referring to you as the "Oceanic Six". That's not the best branding as far as we're concerned, but it's catchy.
-"There's No Place Like Home, Part 1"

CARMEN: Jesus Christ is not a weapon.

-"There's No Place Like Home, Part 2"

LOCKE: If you have to go, then you have to lie about everything... everything that happened since we got to the island it's the only way to protect it.
-"There's No Place Like Home, Part 2"

BEN: Couldn't find the anthuriums, could you?
LOCKE: I don't know what they look like!
-"There's No Place Like Home, Part 2"

LOCKE: Lie to them, Jack. If you do it half as well as you lie to yourself, they'll believe you.

ROSE: Uh, who told you you could eat those peanuts?
MILES: May--may I eat these peanuts?
-"There's No Place Like Home, Part 2"

LAPIDUS: Jack... now I know I'm new to this group and everything, but isn't this the place where everybody starts jumping up and down and hugging each other?
-"There's No Place Like Home, Part 2"

BEN: Jack...I said, all of you. We're gonna have to bring him, too.
-"There's No Place Like Home, Part 2"

DESMOND: There's enough C-4 here to blow up a bloody aircraft carrier. When I was in the army... I did six months' explosive ordnance disposal, which, as the saying goes, is just enough time to learn how to blow yourself up. -"There's No Place Like Home, Part 2"

DESMOND: This is a... this is a trip wire. Move it, and... boom. This is dummy wiring. If you cut the wrong one... boom. This is multiple firing systems. You disable one, and the next one... boom. Uh, this... battery's the power source. If you disconnect it...

(The Lost Experience)  (Sri Lanka video)

ALVAR: Thats why you came. The reason why you’ve investigated the Foundation. You wanted to learn more about the trust fund that paid for your upbringing. You wondered how a single mother, could pay for an education, and all the advantages you were given. But you, are a beautifully intelligent young woman, and you were able to trace the funds back to the Foundation. You searched, and even as you realized all the evil that was being done, even as you turned against everything that the Foundation now stands for, you kept on, because you knew the path would lead, to your father.

HANS VAN EEGHEN: In fact, over the last three days right here in San Diego, we have administered hundreds of ASR tests, aptitude suitability and readiness tests, to those recruits who we believe were of the highest caliber. And I am here to discuss the results of those tests. They were abysmal. In our wildest imagination, we could not have predicted this result, truly pathetic. You see, we believed that this was the ideal gathering to find top quality men and women to serve in this vital mission. But, instead, we found you. Boys and girls in a state of perpetual arrested development. You all sicken me.

DAMON LINDELOF: And considering I have now read Bad Twin, Gary Troup got exactly what he deserved.
-Official Lost Podcast

DAMON LINDELOF: I think that, you know, Joop has always been sort of our back-door cancellation episode which is if the show were ever to be cancelled we would just cut to him and he would turn around, you'd see sort of a leather chair with its back to you behind a desk with all these books stacked in a, and the chair would turn around and we would reveal Joop smoking a pipe and he'd go “Hahi! I suppose you're wondering who I am. My name is Joop”, and then he would proceed to explain all the mysteries of the island, this is Eddie Kitsis's idea.

CARLTON CUSE: And that's erm, that erm pretty much the last episode of the show you'll ever see!

DAMON LINDELOF: At that point its like why bother!

CARLTON CUSE: At that point we're pretty much running from the building.
-Official Lost Podcast

DAMON LINDELOF: We started with an idea that we kind of wanted it to be like Tomorrowland was, you know? In the 1960s, what the DHARMA Initiative’s vision of the future would be in 1980, as opposed to what the future actually was. And then, they came back with a sort of neat and clean idea, and we kind of said, we want to dirty it up a little more. It needs to be a little more industrial, a little more concrete.
