  • Quotes (24)

    • Miles: We got your name when you called the freighter. Of coure we know about you and everybody else on the 815 manifest. Kate: Then prove it. Miles: Your name is Katherine Anne Austen. You're wanted for murder, fraud, arson, whole bunch of other stuff I can't remember. You're a fugitive. You got caught in Australia and the feds were bringing you back. So yeah, we know. If I were you, I'd stay right here on the island. Who knows? Maybe you didn't survive the crash.

    • Sawyer: Oh, you got a secret agenda, huh? Well, if you're spying for Jack... Kate: I'm not spying for anyone. Sawyer: So why don't you tell me why... Kate: Because I don't trust you.

    • Sawyer: Kinda weird, ain't it? Sittin' on porches, drinking coffee out of mugs? By the way, I found some clothes about your size, in the closet. So after I kick out Hugo...
      Kate: I'm not moving in with you, James.
      Sawyer: Well. Then why did you stay?
      Kate: That's none of your business.

    • Sawyer: Beach? What, you're leaving? Because of this? That's that? You crawl up in my bed one second and the next you just... Kate: Goodbye, James. Sawyer: (angry) Don't make this about me, Kate. You didn't want a baby anymore than I did. You're just looking for some excuse to split, and now you've got one. (pause) But that's all right, Freckles, I ain't gonna hold it against you. I'm just gonna sit right here in my comfortable bed, because in about a week, you'll find some reason to get pissed at Jack, and bounce right back to me. (Kate slaps him in the face and runs away)

    • Kate: I'm not pregnant Sawyer: Are you sure? Kate: Yeah, I'm sure. Sawyer: (laughing) I mean, woohoo. Kate: Would it have been the worst thing in the world? Sawyer: Yes. Yes, it would have been the worst thing in the world.I mean, what we would have done with a baby? Kate: I'm going back to the beach.

    Trivia (18)

    • The docket number of Kate's trial was 42231815. 42, 23, 8 and 15 are all part of The Numbers.

    • Sawyer sets up the game of backgammon with Locke incorrectly. The point with three checkers should be two points away from the bar, not three.

    • Under California Ethics Rules, Kate's lawyer may not call a witness (i.e., Jack) against her wishes. Her objection, in open court, to calling Jack would be prima facie evidence of an ethical violation and would lead to sanctions by the California State Bar Association.

    • Despite Kate's murder of Wayne Janssen having occurred in Iowa (in "What Kate Did"), her case is put before a state court in California. In addition, the same court also tries her for her bank robbery (from the episode "Whatever the Case May Be"), which should actually be handled by a federal court.

    • Jack testifies in this episode that the plane wreck was found in the South Pacific Ocean. In Confirmed Dead, the ROV found the plane in the Sunda Trench off of Indonesia, which is part of the Indian Ocean and ties into the Oceanic 6 cover story. Also, he states that flight 815 crashed on an island, which is the truth, when the cover story is that the plane crashed in open water and the survivors floated to an island.
