"The Adventures of Hurley and Frogurt" is the second Lost mobisode. It features a scene between Hurley and Neil "Frogurt" shortly before Hurley's planned picnic with Libby, and her untimely death.


As Hurley walks out of Rose's and Bernard's tent, Neil comes up and asks what he was doing. He looks at the bottle of DHARMA Cabernet that Hurley has dropped and then inquires whether Hurley is going to make a move on Libby. He asks because he has his eyes upon her himself and lets Hurley know he is going to take her away from him. Hurley informs him that he has a date with Libby just now. Neil compliments him, but says that "this isn't over" and walks away.
