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.

Mobisode 4 - "The Deal"

Writer - Elizabeth Sarnoff

Director - Jack Bender

[Michael is tied up, sitting in a yurt in the decoy village. Juliet walks in.]

JULIET: Hello Michael. I'm Juliet.

MICHAEL: What do you want?

JULIET: The boat you asked for - [sitting down to talk to him] they wanted me to tell you it's yours.


JULIET: Beatrice told me you saw your son. I spent some time with him; with Walt. He's a very interesting kid; he's uh... he's very smart. He's very special.

MICHAEL: What do you mean 'special'?

JULIET: Well, he's not an ordinary boy, which is why I'm worried about him. So I'm very glad that you agreed to do this for us; I'm glad that you're going to get him away from here.

MICHAEL: You expect me to believe that you give a damn about my son?

JULIET: Believe it or not, Michael, I am not your enemy.

MICHAEL: Oh you're not, huh?

JULIET: No I'm not. Our man in your camp, the one you're going to free, his name is Ben. He's very important.

MICHAEL: Is he the one that can get me off this island?


MICHAEL: Will he?

JULIET: Yes, he will.

MICHAEL: I guess I'm just supposed to take your word for that, huh?

JULIET: I guess you are.

[Michael looks bewildered and distraught]

JULIET: I made a deal with him, too.

MICHAEL: Then why are you still here?

JULIET: Because he saved my sister's life.

MICHAEL: And where is she?

JULIET: Miami.

MICHAEL: But you had to stay. What's the point in saving her life if you can't be with her?

JULIET: Wouldn't you do anything to save Walt? You have your list. [she gets up to leave] Good luck.

[Juliet walks out the door. Still tied up, Michael looks around, distraught, and slams his feet to the ground.]
