    • Hurley: You don't wait with warnings. You warn!

    • Jack: Put the guns down. Miles: Now why would I do that? Jack: Because our friends are out in the jungle right holding a gun at your head and his head, so I'm gonna forget about the misunderstanding, just put the guns down! Miles: Come on, how stupid do you think I- (Several shots ring out, and Juliet and Sayid come out the bushes with guns aimed at Miles and Daniel. Kate grabs Daniel's gun and aims it at him, but Miles continues to hold him) Jack: I don't know, Miles. How stupid are you?

    • Juliet: We were worried when you didn't get back, so we went to the cockpit and tracked you down. Jack: Thanks for that, for what it's worth. Kate: Somebody could've told me the cavalary were here. Jack: I gave you that..wink. (Jack and Juliet look amused.)

    • Ben: I know it's not pleasant but, let's face it, you really don't stand a chance now... Sawyer: Chance of what? Ben: James. Look at yourself. Yes, on this Island you're brave, daring, handsome, you're someone, but if you left with them, back in the real world a low-life scam artist like you could never compete with a first class surgeon. I think Kate was really upset when you made your choice to come with us. Thank God she has Jack there to comfort... (Sawyer attacks Ben)

    • Ben: Mind if I ask you a question, James? Sawyer: Yeah I do. Ben: Why'd you leave Kate behind? Sawyer: Wasting your time, Yoda.

    • Zoe Bell is credited as a guest star despite not seeing her on screen. Her appearance merely consists of being a voice on a phone.

    • This marks the first episode without Dominic Monaghan listed as a regular.

    • This is the first episode to feature flashbacks of new characters on the same episode in which they first appear (except of course for the pilot episode).

    Trivia (13)

    • Goof: Charlotte, hanging from a tree, releases her parachute and plunges into a muddy pond. The next shot shows her under the water in a crystal clear pond. In the following shot she surfaces again in the muddy pond.

    • Number 15: The number 15 can be seen on a poster in the room Miles visits in his flashback.

    • When Miles heads up the stairs to have his discussion with the ghost, the pictures on the wall can be seen in wooden frames. When Miles comes back down the stairs, the frames of the pictures have changed to (synthetic) brass. Additionally, the picture the camera centers on is bigger in the second scene. It also appears that the photos surrounding the focal point photo have also changed. Most notably the photo to the left of the focal point photo, the one that shows a young man entering a car, appears to be something completely different.

    • The Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 Hotline Number 1-888-548-0034 is seen on Frank's television. Calling this number results in an automated message, not a human operator as seen on the show.

    • When Jack and friends are helping Frank Lapidus after he passed out, a big piece of grass is stuck to the cut on his head. The camera cuts to the other side of Frank's face, and when it pans back the grass is gone, yet it has been a fraction of a second.

    • Monster: When the group first see Miles lying motionless near his parachute the shot resembles the classic 1963 movie adaptation of Lord of the Flies by William Golding when the shipwrecked children first spot their island's monster.

    • Essex The town where Daniel lives is named Essex and Charlotte lives in a county named Essex. Essex is also a reference to a famous whaling ship that was launched off the coast of Nantucket in 1819. The mission of the ship was to hunt sperm whales in the South Pacific. The ship sank and the crew ended up on an uninhabited island in the Pitcairn chain, where they fed on birds, fruits and vegetation, as well as water from a local freshwater spring, before resorting to cannibalism. The surviving members of the crew were rescued on Day 93. The story is the inspiration for Herman Melville's "Moby Dick".

    • Star Wars Daniel tells Kate and Jack, "I'm here to rescue you", exactly like what Luke says to Leia in the 1977 film "Star Wars".

    • Miles. Miles is a character in Henry James's The Turn of the Screw who communicates with a dead person who appears throughout the story. In this episode, Miles is shown to communicate with the dead.

    • Locke says Ben has no power except his voice. Gandalf made the same comment about Saruman after removing him from power in Lord of the Rings.
