  • This episode can be boring, mainly because it focus on Kate and even the Island scenes was pure filler with little future hints. Overall, this episode is transitional.

    Trivia (13)

    • Jorge Garcia confirmed on his blog that it was him reading out the numbers in the transmission the French team picked up. However Gregg Nations explained that this was an easter egg rather than a plot point.

    • On the beach, the French castaways could hear "4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42" on their walkies, that was the original transmission that the island had before Rousseau changed it for her own transmission.

    • The first scene that shows Locke and the others paddling on the boat, a wave splash can be seen on the bottom from the boat with the camera crew.

    • The handwriting on the paper with Kate's address is different when Jack gives it to her and when Sayid finds it in Tony's wallet.

    • Sawyer is watching Kate help Claire deliver the baby. As the baby arrives, Kate holds it in her hands and you can clearly see the baby's belly button rather than a still intact umbilical cord.

    • The Godfather Part III: Sun receives a box of candy that conceals a gun just like Al Neri does while on a train to assassinate the archbishop.

    • Yoknapatawpha County: Sun's surveillance report contains a reference to a Yoknapatawpha County Library. The fictional Yoknapatawpha County of Mississippi is the setting of many of William Faulkner's novels.

    • Le Petit Prince: The episode's title refers to the novel of the same name by Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry, a French writer and aviator. Though outwardly a children's book, it has varied themes on life, perception and human nature. Exupery was French, like Rousseau's science expedition, and met with disaster while travelling and disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Additionally, "Besixdouze" ("B612"),though it should be written "Bsixdouze" to make sense in French, the apparent name of the expedition's lost boat (as per the wreckage on the beach), is a reference to the asteroid on which The Little Prince lives in the book.
