  • Hurley's use of the phrase "Bloop!" to discribe the disapearance of the island may be a reference to the underwater phenomenon recorded in 1997 and referred to as The Bloop.

Acknowledging the Numbers

  • When Ben gets his ticket at Jill's shop and it reads, 342, the look on his face and the fact that he just stares at the number for a good 5/6 seconds gives me the impression that he's thinking "oh, of course. i see what's going on."
