    • Ellie: (Upon seeing Daniel Faraday) You just couldn't stay away, could you?

    • Richard: How do I know you weren't sent here on some suicide mission? That I'll take you out to the bomb, and you'll just detonate it? Faraday: Because... I'm in love with the woman sitting next to me. And I would never... I would never do anything to hurt her.

    • Sawyer: Are you crazy?! What were you thinking? Why didn't you shoot him?! Locke: Because... he's one of my people.

    • Daniel: Charlotte! You okay? Charlotte: Yeah. Fine. Miles: Yeah, me too. I'm great too.

    • Richard: How did you escape? Widmore: I ran. Richard: And it never occurred to you that they might follow you? Widmore: Follow me? Their leader is some sodding old man (referring to Locke). What, you think he can track me? Do you think he knows this island better than I do?

    Trivia (15)

    • While Penny and Desmond are discussing Desmond's search for Daniel's mother, there is a blue coffee cup on the nightstand next to Penny. When the scene cuts back to Penny, the cup is missing, and Penny's stack of paperbacks is rearranged.

    • Numbers: Miles senses the graves of 4 dead U.S. soldiers: 3 were shot and 1 died because of radiation poisoning.

    • Desmond and Penny's child is named Charlie, sharing a name with the man who kept them apart (Charles Widmore) and the man whose actions helped them reunite (Charlie Pace).

    • Daniel Faraday realizes he can't dismantle the Jughead bomb because it was leaking. In the season two finale (Live Together, Die Alone), Desmond mentions that "the incident" at the Swan station was the result of something leaking and needing to be covered in concrete. That is why there was a closed off (cemented in) portion of the hatch and the numbers that needed to be entered into the computer every 108 minutes to release the built-up electromagnetic energy.

    • In this episode, Daniel Faraday tells Ellie that they can render the bomb ineffective by covering it with concrete and burying it. In the season two episode, Everybody Hates Hugo, Sayid makes this statement about the closed off part of the Swan hatch: The last time I heard of concrete being poured over everything in this way was Chernobyl.
