(Sydney's been hypnotized for interrogation, in her hypnosis she meets Vaughn)
Vaughn: What do you think about orichiette?
Sydney: I don't think I've ever heard of it, wait a minute don't tell me you cook?
Vaughn: There's a lot of things about me you don't know.
Sydney: Do you clean too?
Vaughn: I've been known to, why? You thinking of hiring me?
Sydney: (to her interrogator) If you hurt my baby, I swear I will kill you.
(Jack and Renée scout an abandoned building looking for Sydney)
Jack: Unit 3 is located on the third floor.
Renée: The lease expired 16 years ago.
Jack: (handing Renée a gun) Nevertheless.
Sydney: But do you know what I want? I want the world to forget about us. I'm tired, Vaughn. I'm tired of having this weight on my shoulder. I – I don't want to be the one who has to save the world. I want you back. I want you all to myself. I want to go away, just you and me and our baby; somewhere no one can bother us, on a deserted island. I want out.
Sydney: I'm not a big fan of pain.
Jack: (About Destantis) He said he's prepared to die. See if he means it.
Jack: Tell me where they have my daughter.
Desantis: I'll tell you nothing.
Jack: You've been shot, you'll never survive the blood loss. Though I am prepared to draw this out to the last second, make it as painful as it needs to be until you tell me where she is.
Desantis: Where she is does not matter. Your concern should be where she's going.
(After Sydney's abduction Renee captures Dr. Desantis, and calls Jack to assist interrogating him)
Desantis: (to Renee) So this is how you do it? Bring in a man in a suit to scare me into talking.
Jack: You're right, the suit shouldn't scare you… what should scare you is that I'm a very concerned father (Jack draws out a knife a cuts Desantis's right ear off)
Jack: Sure you've no means left by which to contact Prophet 5?
Sloane: Jack, I told you that Gordon Dean was my only resource. With him dead I have nothing.
Jack: I have something for you
Sydney: What a gift?
Jack: Technically no, it's already yours. I'm just returning it.
(Sydney opens the gift and sees an old silver rattle)
Jack: Your mother and I bought it when you were born. You wouldn't let it out of your sight till you were three. Reminds me of a time when I could keep you safe.
Vaughn: You just threw your phone in the Pacific....twice.

Neither Michael Vartan (Vaughn) nor Lena Olin (Irina) were credited at the start of the episode, probably to keep their appearances a surprise (despite the fact that Vaughn was in the opening scene).
Sydney: I want to go away, just you and me and our baby; somewhere no one can bother us, on a deserted island.
This could be a possible allusion to JJ Abrams other show Lost about a group of plane-crash survivors on a deserted island.
