  • Quotes (34)

    • Hurley: But I got better. I changed. Dave: Changed? What, are you kidding me? Take a look at yourself. You've been on a deserted island for over two months and you haven't dropped ten pounds. How is that even possible, man?

    • Hurley: So this is all just in my brain? Dave: Every rock, every tree. Every tree frog. Even me. The real me, the one they told you was imaginary? He went out the window, man. Right now he's probably bouncing from hot chick to hot chick, unlike me, who's really you, who's got more important things to do.

    • Hurley: You don't know me. Libby: I was starting to. Hurley: Yeah, well did you know I'm so fat that I killed two people? And that I have an imaginary friend?

    • Hurley: This isn't real life. Libby: Why would you say that? Hurley: Because in real life, no girl like you would ever like me. Remember when I said I knew you from somewhere? Well, maybe it's because I made you up?

    • Dave: (To Hurley) Oh, oh, oh, can you taste that? That is freedom, baby. You know what tastes even better than freedom? Cheeseburgers.
