    • Charlie: Please let me carry your bag. Claire: I’m fine. Charlie: I know you’re fine but I can still carry your bag. Claire: Why did you come after me? Charlie: Well, it’s probably because I like you. What? Claire: You don’t like me Charlie, okay, you just want to rescue me, because I’m – because of this (rubs belly). But I’m fine, okay. I don’t need rescuing.

    • Psychic: If you don’t do what I’m suggesting great danger will befall... Claire: Great danger will befall you if you don’t stop calling me in the middle of the night!

    • Psychic: I can tell you, this is important. Claire: Okay. Psychic: It is crucial that you, yourself, raise this child. Claire: You, you mean with Thomas, is he - Psychic: No the father of the child will play no part in it’s life, nor yours. Claire: So what exactly are you saying? Psychic: This child parented by anyone else, anyone other than you…danger surrounds this baby. Claire: Danger? Psychic: Your nature, your spirit, your goodness must be an influence in the development of this child Claire: Look, if, if Thomas and I don’t, you know, get back together I, I’m putting this baby up for adoption. I just, I just wanted to find out what would give the baby the happiest life. Psychic: There is no happy life. Not for this child - not without you. Claire: I don’t... Psychic: Look, there can’t be another. You mustn’t allow another to raise your baby.

    • Jack: Claire told Michael and I that this attacker tried to inject her with something, but there was no mark on her stomach. She wakes up two nights in a row, screaming. The first time, she was sleepwalking. Charlie: You think she's making this up? She was terrified, man! Jack: Look, she said that the guy was trying to hurt her baby. Why would someone do that now with all of us sleeping twenty feet away? Charlie: So, you think she's lying? Jack: No, pregnant women have extremely lucid - Charlie: Lucid? Jack: These are textbook anxiety nightmares. Charlie: You know everything that's going on with everyone? Kate: Hey. So, what do we do? Jack: Claire's due in a little more than a week, maybe two. But, if she stays stressed out like this or has another panic attack, it could trigger an early labor. And, out here, with no instruments, no monitors, no anesthetic, that would not be good. Charlie: It's not all in her head.

    • Hurley: Hey, Lance! Ethan: Sorry? Hurley: Your name's Lance, right? Ethan: Ethan. Hurley: Dude, that's right. Lance is the little, skinny guy with glasses and the red hair. Ethan: I can see how you'd confuse us. Hurley: Sorry, dude. Lots of names and faces. Pretty pathetic, huh? You'd think, after a couple of weeks on the island with the same people we'd all know each other. Ethan: Yeah, you're right, you would think so.
