    • Shannon: (Translating the message from the radio) She's saying, Please help me. Please come get me... I'm alone now. On the island alone. Please someone come. The others, they're... they're dead. It killed them, it killed them all.

    • Hurley: (to Sawyer) We're all in this together man, let's treat each other with a little respect. Sawyer: Shut up, lardo!

    • Sayid: Polar bears don't live near this far south. Boone: This one does. Sawyer: Did. It did.

    • Sawyer: I know your type. Kate: I'm not so sure. Sawyer: Yeah, I've been with girls like you. Kate: Not girls exactly like me.

    • Marshal: You look worried. I'd be worried, too, if I was you. But you've got to stay positive, kiddo. You know, there's always that off chance that they'll believe your story. I know I sure did. Kate: I don't care what you believe.

    • The scene where Sawyer shoots a polar bear became very problematic, as discussed on the Season 1 DVD special, "Welcome to Oahu". The original test screening preview of the episode showed a stuffed bear that looked unrealistic when frozen in screen capture; this was later replaced with a much more realistic CGI animation.

    • The French transmission was dubbed in German for the French version.

    • Aired in Sweden on February 9th, 2005.

    Trivia (10)

    • Goof: When Sayid says that he fought in the Gulf War, Hurley says he had a buddy who also fought there, stating "He was in the 104th Airborne." There was no unit designated "104th Airborne" that fought in the Gulf War. There was, however, a 104th Airborne that fought in Chechnya for the Russian Federation in 2004.

    • When Sayid and Sawyer are fighting, Sayid says "Ibn al-kalb" to him. This translates to "Son of a bitch".

    • When Kate, Sayid, Boone, Shannon and Charlie are leaving the camp to test the tranceiver, Sawyer is reading a letter and we can see that he is not shaved. A couple of seconds later, when he joins them he is shaved, which wouldn't be possible in this time frame.

    • Numbers: 8 The ring charlie has in his right hand has 8 point-lane.

    • Boone had no way of knowing that the pilot was killed on Charlie, Kate and Jack's trip to the front of the plane? When asked if there were any survivors, Jack replied no while Charlie and Kate looked away.
