Producers' commentary[]

From the 11/28/05 podcast:

Carlton Cuse: Exactly. Is there any connection between the loss of Montand's arm, and the fact that Dr. Marvin Candle has a fake hand?

Damon Lindelof: Eh, I dunno, is there? We also found a glass eye in the Arrow Station. People just lose body parts I think easily on the Island.

Carlton Cuse: Exactly.

Damon Lindelof: It isn't a widely known fact that actually Marvin Candle has a fake hand. You actually have to watch the film a fair amount of times, so I think that's a good nugget of podcast exclusivity that you just downloaded there.

Carlton Cuse: Wow, that's cool. And would it be possible that in a future episode we would discover why Marvin Candle has a fake hand?

Damon Lindelof: I suppose anything's possible, I guess. But, unlikely. [Carlton laughs]
