    • Melissa: We saved the plane. It was pretty awesome. The way we all worked together. And I really think if everybody puts their personal stuff aside and thinks like a team, we'll be okay until we get rescued.

    • Nathan: My name's Nathan McHugh and I'm one of the eleven people from Los Angeles who...crashed on an island somewhere in the South Pacific. We're not sure how long we're gonna be here, but I thought it would be a smart idea to make a diary in case...well, in case whatever. Uh, we all go to the same school, but we're not a bunch. Melissa's great. You know, I think she's the one person we can all rely on. I hate to say I'm glad she's here, but...I'm glad she's here. Daley? She's totally competent, but...she's an ego case. If an idea isn't hers, it's not a good one. Eric's a funny guy, but he's strange. He's acting like this is a vacation. I wonder what he's gonna do when reality hits. Taylor's gonna need a clue. Or you know what? Maybe it's better that she doesn't have one, 'cause if she figures out how much trouble we're in, her brain might explode. I don't get Jackson. You know, he's only been at school a couple of months so nobody really knows him. I don't know if he's cool or super smart or brain-dead. To be honest, he gives me the creeps. And Daley's little stepbrother, Lex, is here, unfortunately. You know, this is gonna be tough enough without having a little kid getting all upset on us.

    • Nathan: We had no idea how long we'd be stuck. But one thing was clear: we needed a leader to keep us together and be a grown-up. Unfortunately, all we had was Captain Chaos.

    • Melissa: Where do you think we are? I mean, we can't be far off course, can we? Nathan: I don't know, Mel. You know, maybe we were lucky enough to land where somebody'll find us quick. Maybe we're lucky just to be anywhere.

    • Daley: Call the other plane with the rest of our group. Or call the airport at Palau or-or call the Navy. Captain Russell: Maybe I can just tune into the Yankees game while I'm at it. Daley: That's not funny. Captain Russell: You want funny? Listen. (turns on the radio and only static is heard) Daley: Which means? Captain Russell: Which means this radio is about as useless as this plane. How's that for funny?

    • Nathan: That was the moment. The last time everything was still cool. The trip had just started and nobody hated anybody else...much. Everything was exactly the way it was supposed to be. None of us had a clue that we were on the edge of a cliff and about to step off.

    • (Nathan and Daley are fighting over who should be leader and Captain Russell is leaving into the jungle) Daley: Hey! While you're gone sombody's gotta be in charge. You're the grown up. Appoint some one. Captain Russell: Okay, kiddies, who wants to be the big boss? (Nathan and Daley raise their hands while the others just stare into their direction) Captain Russell (sarcastically and pretending he just notices them): Oh! Big surprise! Why don't you two fight it out, huh? May the best dork or dorkette win. (He leaves, laughing)

    • (The pilot, Captain Russell, hands out food to the three who are going to look for something in the forest with him) Abby: Is this chicken? I'm a vegan. Captain Russell: A who? Abby: It means I don't eat meat. Captain Russell: I don't eat vegetables. What does that make me? Abby: A meathead.
