    Trivia (31)

    • In the shot when the four on the raft are looking at the island, Walt is wearing a yellow personal flotation device which he is not wearing in the other shots.

    • When Sawyer gets on the plane his hair is long, although in the first episodes his hair is different. It couldn't have grown in just a few hours.

    • Goof: When Locke and Sayid are walking to the hatch through the woods, the shirt Locke is wearing has sweat around the collar. Then the camera switches to Sayid, and back to Locke, and the sweat is gone, then one more camera switch happens, and Locke's shirt is sweaty again.

    • When Hurley is rushing to the gate to board the plane in his flashback, there is a sign on a door reading "Authorized Personnel Only". Since this is an Australian airport, the sign would read "Authorised Personnel Only" - with an "s" instead of a "z".

    • When Sayid is cauterizing Charlie's head wound, there is a shot of Charlie pulling the towel away from his face, which is covered in blood. The camera cuts to Sayid for a moment, then when it goes back to Charlie, his face is relatively clean, except for the blood around the wound itself.

    Allusions (7)

    • Claire names her baby Aaron. That's also the name of Moses's brother, which ties in with the episode being named "Exodus" and the idea that they've been on island for 40 days.

    • Michael mentions Bob Marley, who had a song named just like the episode's title.

    • An allusion to the Game Operation. Locke asks Jack if he remembers the electronic game Operation as he's removing the dynamite. The game was to remove plastic body parts with metal tweezers without touching the sides of the body or it would set off the buzzer.

    • Comic Book Character: The Flash
      When we see Hurley on the plane in the end, we see he's reading a comic book about The Flash. The Flash is a comic book hero who can run at lightning speed. And if you look hard, one of the panels apparently has a polar bear in it. Since Hurley is Spanish and that was the comic book that Walt was reading in the middle of the season, then it is safe to assume that the comic book belonged to Hurley and Walt found it in the crash.

    • Locke: Hope. I think hope's inside.
      When asked what he thinks is in the hatch, Locke replies that he thinks that hope is inside. In the legend of Pandora's Box, after Pandora opens the box and releases various forms of evil and sorrow into the world, she discovers that the spirit of hope - whose mission was to heal the victims of the evil contained in the box - was also inside.
