Quotes (17)

  • Hurley: Together. Like they live together. Like not as roommates.

  • Ben: Because, Sayid, to put it simply, you're capable of things that most other men aren't. Every choice you've made in your life, whether it was to murder or to torture, it hasn't really been a choice at all, has it? It's in your nature. It's what you are. You're a killer, Sayid.

  • Sayid: A twelve-year-old Ben Linus brought me a chicken salad sandwich. How do you think I'm doing?

  • Sayid: You're going to be killed. Horace: How exactly would you know this, Sayid? Sayid: Because I am from the future. Oldham: Maybe I should've used half a dropper (truth drug). Oops...

  • Sayid: Are you working for Benjamin Linus? Ilana: What? Sayid: Are you working for him? Ilana: Who's Benjamin Linus? Sayid: He's a liar, a manipulator, a man who allowed his own daughter to be murdered to save himself, a monster responsible for nothing short of genocide. Ilana: Why would I work for somebody like that? Sayid: I did.

  • Sayid: Do me a favor. Can we get the next plane? Ilana: Why? Sayid: I'm very superstitious when it comes to flying. Ilana: I'm going to buy you a rabbit's foot at the gift shop.

  • Jack: What the hell happened? Sawyer: Three years, no burning buses. You all back for one day ...

  • Sawyer: Hit me in the face. Sayid: What? Sawyer: Go on, you owe me one anyway. So make it a good one. I want you to take these keys out of my pocket and let yourself out. Guard outside is Phil. He's a dimwit. So I reckon you can get his gun before he even realizes you're out. Just promise me you won't shoot him.

Trivia (16)

  • Russian man told to Sayid before he killed him (translated from russian): "Wait, wait, wait! Don't shoot. 300 or 400 thousand euro. This is all yours. Please, Please!"

  • Numbers: -When Sayid leaves the Moscow building, the reverse writing above the door reads "Oldham 32 Pharmaceuticals", not russian but an english words, just written in cyrillic letters. 32 reversed is 23. -The license plate of the car in front of which Ben waits for Sayid is "E 608 PC 158". -Young Ben told Sayid that he first met Richard 4 years ago. -Sawyer reports on the walkie-talkie that Building 15 is on fire after the flaming DHARMA van plows into it.

  • Before Sawyer goes into Sayid's cell the first time, an Apple Lisa can be seen behind Phil. This computer would not be on the market for another 6 years.

  • During the DHARMA meeting about Sayid, they mentioned Ann Arbor. That city is home to the University of Michigan, the same college that DHARMA founders Karen and Gerald DeGroot work at. Also, Pierre Chang was the professor of theoretical astrophysics from Ann Arbor, Michigan.

  • Next when Jack approached Hurley, Sayid saw Kate sitting in a chair before standing up and go, however, in "316", Kate passed through to the terminal gate long before that.

  • When Sayid looks at Hurley at the airport, the female ticketing agent that Hurley debated with is obviously not Nalini who was seen in "316".

  • The small CCTV camera we saw in the cell holding Sayid was a modern CCD camera. The only CCD cameras available in the 70s looked more like... 70s video cameras: large and metallic.

  • A prayer flag can be seen at Oldham's camp. On such a flag, each color represents a different element (sky, air, fire, water, earth), and those colors are arranged in very specific patterns. Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space. Therefore, prayer flags are thought to bring benefit to all.

  • The Silence of the Lambs: Sayid waits, hands crossed at the cell wall looking straight ahead as young Benjamin Linus enters the holding room. This scene is quite similar to the character introduction scene in the 1991 film Silence of the Lambs. Hannibal Lecter is shown restrained behind thick glass panels and windowless stone walls waiting for Clarice Starling.

  • Yet another allusion to Geronimo Jackson, this time we can see a poster on the wall in the cafeteria.
