  • Jack: What happened? Kate: Sorry? Jack: At Locke's, why did you stay? Kate: I stayed because I had to find something out. Jack: You gonna tell me or are we gonna keep walking through the jungle like it doesn't matter? (she stops walking and Jack walks up to her and faces her) Kate: I stayed to find out if the people on the freighter know who I am. If they knew that I'm a fugitive, that I'm wanted for murder.

I mean, you killed one, Ben shot one, and now we're holding one prisoner. You know, it's not hard to understand why they might think we're hostile. I might be just a little less intimidating. Locke: It's not gonna happen, Claire.
