    • Hurley: (At Libby's funeral) Libby was - she was, she - Libby was a psychologist, or psychiatrist, one of those. Either way, she probably helped a lot of people. She helped me.

    • Jack: You were supposed to come right back. You were out in the jungle all night. What happened? Eko: We were unable to find Henry's trail. Jack: Yeah, I got that.

    • Michael: Hey, you're not coming. Sayid: Welcome back, Michael. Michael: Look, I know Sawyer told you, all right. But, it's not going to work. You're not coming. Sayid: And why is it that I'm not coming? Michael: Because you're going after the guy that escaped. And I'm going after my son. Sayid: Are you implying I'd let a desire for revenge compromise Walt's safety? Michael: I'm implying that I decide who stays and who goes; and you stay!

    • Michael: Ow, damn it! Pickett: Relax, just taking some blood. Michael: Taking some blood for what? Who are you people? Where's my son? Pickett: That's it; all done. See you in the funny pages.

    • Another mock commercial for Hanso Foundation appeared within the real commercials. This time it shows the website "www.letyourcompassguideyou.com". This website has a interactive compass on it and the page title is "Permissum Vestri Complector Rector Vos" which means something like "let your compass guide you", the same words as the web address, in Latin.

    • The piece of paper that Mrs. Klugh gives to Michael with the four names, is seen twice in this episode. The first time is just before it is burned. If that image is reversed and compared to the scene later in the episode, it is clear that the handwriting is different.

    • Goof: When Charlie is throwing the statues filled with heroin into the ocean, he is shown throwing seven statues; however, there were only seven stored altogether in the armory (as shown in a previous episode), and one was broken to give Libby some relief from her pain.

    • Numbers: -The list given to Michael has 4 names in it. -The case that Charlie brings to Claire has 8 vials of the vaccine in it. -When Jack comes in the hatch to find Mr Eko, the number on the timer is 35 minutes. 35=23+8+4.
