    • Ben: Any luck? Ms Hawking Yes, what about you? Ben: I'm having some difficulties. Ms. Hawking: Well, you better get busy, because you only have 70 hours. Ben: What, no no, that's not enough time. What I need at least... Ms. Hawking: What you need is irrelevent. 70 hours is what you've got. Ben: Look, I lost Reyes tonight. So what happens if I can't get them all to come back? Ms Hawking: Then God help us all.

    • Jack: (about Sayid) We have to get him to the hospital. David: No. No. Hugo said that whoever did this, will come back after him. Jack: All due respect, Mr. Reyes, but you brought him to me, so I'm gonna do what I think is best for Sayid. David: All right, fine, take him to the hospital. But with all due respect for you, Dr. Shephard, when all this is over, you're gonna do something for me. Jack: What? David: Stay away from Hugo. Whatever it is you talked him into, something tells me you don't have his best interest in heart. So stay away from my son!

    • Locke: James, Juliet. Nice to see you!

    • Hugo: Thanks, Ana Lucia. Ana Lucia: Oh, yeah. Libby says hi.

    • Hurley: I'm a murderer. I killed four people. Three people. However many I did. I killed them.
