Removed theory that this ' May have been the man Shannon lived with in France'. This isn't correct. Philippe had a daughter; the man she lived with had a son:

"Whatever the case may be":

SAYID:  If you really put your mind to it, I know you can, Shannon.  (Without 
looking at him, she rolls her eyes.)  Where did you learn to speak French?

SHANNON:  I knew this guy.

(He looks at her.)

SAYID:  This guy?

SHANNON:  In France, in St. Tropez.  I kind of lived there for a while.

SAYID:  Well, they say that is the best way to learn a foreign language.


SHANNON:  The guy from St. Tropez, he had this kid -- a real snot -- who hated 
me.  His name was Laurent.  He watched this movie over and over and over again 
every day, all day, like kids do, nine hundred times.  It was the cartoon about 
fish.  You know, one of the computer ones.

SAYID:  Why are you telling me this?

SHANNON:  Because the movie was dubbed in French, and at the end, there was this 
song.  Those notations -- they're song lyrics.  And your French woman, she's 
just like Laurent, 'cause she wrote them over and over and over again.

  • As Philippe appears in a S2 DVD deleted scene, I've added a stub. After a summary of this scene and a screenshot has been posted, the stub may be removed. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk 04:19, 10 October 2006 (PDT)
