    • "Catch-22" is a reference to the novel Catch-22 written by Joseph Heller and published in 1961. It is a satirical fiction that tells the story of the US army in World War II, and centers around the experiences of a soldier, Yossarian.

      The phrase 'Catch-22' is used to denote a situation that's outcome depends on a contradictory thing happening, thus making the first thing impossible to happen. In this episode, Desmond's vision suggests he cannot find the parachutist without Charlie but, if Charlie comes along, he will be killed by one of Rousseau's traps and they won't find the parachutist.
