Season 3 Episode 18


Aired Sunday 9:00 PM Apr 25, 2007 on ABC



  • Trivia

    • Numbers: A buoy in Jin's father's boat can be seen in the sequence where Sun walks toward him. The numbers 4 and 16 are visible.

    • Goof: At the beginning of the flashback, likely set in 2000 or 2001, Sun is wearing a blue and green halter dress from Catherine Malandrino's 2007 Spring/Summer collection.

    • When Sun enters Mr. Paik's office, she overhears him arguing with an employee. This is the only Korean conversation not translated in the entire episode. The translation is:
      Employee: We haven't received the forged conveyance permit yet, Mr. Chairman.
      Mr. Paik: I heard the Hanso Foundation is filled with anger at the fact that our side didn't offer the equipment!

    • Goof: When Juliet is performing an ultrasound scan on Sun, a heartbeat can be heard while performing a "B-mode Scan". Heartbeats can only be heard on an ultrasound machine when performing a "Doppler Scan", which detects blood flow. There is no indication that the system is operating in Doppler mode. This is a frequent goof that appears in many shows where ultrasound systems are used.

    • Juliet recorded the information about Sun at 6:00 AM.
      Also, 6 can be multiplied into 42. 15, 16, 23 and 42 are some of "The Numbers". Those are 4. 4 is also one of "The Numbers".

    • Juliet said that Jin & Sun's baby was concieved 53 days ago (5+3=8; 5x3=15), and before she said 8 weeks. 8 and 15 are two of "The Numbers".

    • The survivors have been on the island for 88 days now. 8 is one of the Numbers. Plus, 8+8=16. 16 is another Number.

    • There appear to actually be two prop phones used - an Iridium 9500 in the longer shots, and one for the close-up of the screen.

    • When Sun visits her father's office, the logo over the stairs says "Paik" with Korean writing underneath. When translated, the writing reads, "Paik Heavy Industries." This alternate reality company was also featured in The LOST Experience ARG over the summer. This episode, however, marks the first time it has been seen on the show.

    • The money Mr. Paik gives his daughter, Sun, is in U.S. dollars instead of Korean won.

    • This episode takes place on December 17-18, 2004, The survivors 87th and 88th day on the island.

    • Though Hurley correctly identified Naomi's satellite phone as such when he saw it in the final moments of the previous episode, he's merely able to refer to it as a "fancy radio phone thingy" in this episode.

    • After Mikhail is done treating Naomi's wound, she says in Portuguese "Eu não estou só" which means "I am not alone", not "Thank you" as Mikhail translates.

  • Quotes

    • Sun: If what you said was true, that means I'm already dead. Why should I go anywhere with you?
      Juliet: Because there may be a hope for you yet.

    • Charlie: You can't trust 'em, you know.
      Desmond: What's that?
      Charlie: The Others. The one you let go. He'll be back tomorrow with five of his mates. You should've killed him.
      Desmond: You know, Brother, by my count, you've killed more of them then they've killed of you.
      Charlie: They started it! You know, just cause one comes traipsing back with Jack and Kate doesn't mean we can trust 'em now.

    • Sun: So, how long do I have?
      Juliet: Most of the women made it to the middle of their second trimester. Nobody made it to their third.
      Sun: That gives me two months. I am... very happy the baby's Jin's. You gave me good news, Juliet.
      Juliet: It was my pleasure, Sun. I'm gonna go back inside and make sure I didn't miss anything. I don't want to take the the chance that we didn't cover our tracks.

    • Sun: Why didn't you tell me you were Jin's mother?
      Woman: I gave birth to him, but that does not make me his mother.
      Sun: You know how powerful my family is. My husband believes that you are dead. Do not force me to make that a reality.

    • Juliet: (looking at the ultrasound machine) There's your baby. You see?
      Sun:(smiling) I can see it. Is it a boy or a girl?
      Juliet: Oh, it's a little early. But, um, do you see that little flutter? That's the heart beating. It's very strong, it's very healthy. Okay, you crashed here 90 days ago. The baby was conceived about 8 weeks ago so, um, 53 days. You got pregnant on the island. (Sun begins to cry) I am so sorry. I'm so sorry, Sun. I will do everything that I can.
      Sun: (crying) It's Jin's!

    • Jin: What's this money?
      Sun: It's ... from my father.
      Jin: Why?
      Sun: I wanted to get us furniture and I wanted us to have a nice honeymoon.
      Jin: I can provide for you. The honeymoon ... the furniture. I know it will take longer, but it will happen. And I will pay for it. I will always take care of you, Sun.
      Sun: I know.
      Jin: Then give it back. I don't want to be in your father's debt any more than we already are. Please.
      Sun: Jin, I love you.
      Jin: Madly?
      Sun: Madly.

    • Sun: How does it work?
      Juliet: Well, I take a measurement of the fetus and that will tell us when your baby was conceived. You okay?
      Sun: I lose either way; if I'm going to live, that means the baby's not Jin's.
      Juliet: Do you still wanna do this?
      Sun: Yes.
      Juliet: Okay. Moment of truth.

    • Sun: The baby isn't Jin's. We tried to have a baby back in Korea and couldn't. And the doctor, he told me Jin was infertile.
      Juliet: And, then, you came here.
      Sun: What?
      Juliet: Did you know that the average male sperm count is between 60 and 80 million? But, on this island, it's 5 times that. We call that good odds.

    • (Jin pulls the satellite phone from Mikhail's hand)
      Jin: Phone!
      Charlie: You stole this?
      Mikhail: How could you respect me if I didn't try?
      Charlie: How 'bout I take your other eye? Would you respect that?
      Mikhail: Sorry, what? (Charlie tries to tackle him)
      Desmond: Charlie, don't! Charlie, let him go!
      Charlie: This is a mistake! We can't keep letting these people go!
      Desmond: We gave him our word! (to Mikhail) Go on, get out of here.

    • (About the parachutist)
      Mikhail: She's fine. Keep the wound as clean as you can. She should be better in a day.
      Charlie: A day? Her lung was punctured.
      Mikhail: On this island, the rules are a bit different. Maybe a day and a half.

    • Sun: Why is this room hidden?
      Juliet: Don't worry about it.
      Sun: What is this place? Tell me!
      Juliet: It's where we brought the women to die.

    • (About giving Sun, his daughter, $100,000)
      Paik: Why should I give you money without an explanation?
      Sun: Because, my whole life, I've pretended not to know what you do. I've allowed you to keep your control over me. I pretend that everything is alright. I will continue pretending as long as you give me the money I am asking for. No questions asked.
      Paik: We do not live in a world where there are no questions asked!
      Sun: I'm doing this to spare someone I love deep shame.
      Paik: Your new husband? (He puts the $100,000 from a safe in an envelope) If the money is for your husband, it is he who will bear this debt. He will no longer be a floor manager. He will be working for me.

    • Sun: Where are we going?
      Juliet: It's a medical station near here, they have an ultrasound machine.
      Sun: Claire and Kate told me about that place; it was abandoned. They found nothing there.
      Juliet: That's because they didn't know where to look.
      Sun: What are you going to do to me?
      Juliet: I'm gonna look at your baby and determine the D.O.C., um, date of conception. The ultrasound will tell me when you got pregnant, give or take a day. If you pregnant off the island, then you and your baby will probably be okay. But, if you got pregnant here... we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

    • Juliet: You want me to help you and your baby, I have answers to your questions. But you have to come with me, right now. Just you and me, nobody else.
      Sun: If what you said was true, that means I'm already dead. Why should I go anywhere with you?
      Juliet: Because, there may be hope for you yet.

    • (in Korean)
      Mr. Kwon: Please, tell me about your wedding.
      Sun: It was beautiful. The happiest day of my life.
      Mr. Kwon: And my son's, too, I imagine.
      Sun: Mr. Kwon, why weren't you at the wedding?
      Mr. Kwon: What did he tell you?
      Sun: He told me... you were dead. Why would he say that?
      Mr. Kwon: To avoid the shame of where he came from.
      Sun: And is that why you told him his mother died when he was a baby?
      Mr. Kwon: His mother, she was with many men. She left me with the baby. I raised him alone. I wasn't even sure I was the father. But who else would take care of him? (He wipes his hand on his shirt and lifts up Sun's chin) You are so beautiful. It pleases me much to meet you. You can never tell him that you met me or that his mother is still alive. Please, for me. Do not... do not make him suffer this shame.

    • Parachutist: Sto... sto morendo.
      Desmond: You understand her?
      Mikhail: She's speaking Italian. She said she's dying. She needs help. I was a Soviet Army field medic; I can offer you my services. (He is led by Desmond over to the parachutist)
      Charlie: Wait, what are you doing?
      Desmond: I'm saving her.
      Mikhail: This branch has punctured her lung. It's filling with blood. If it is not ventilated soon, she's going to die.
      Desmond: Well, do it. Help her!
      Mikhail: If I fix her, you must let me walk away as if I never came upon you.
      Desmond: (pause) What do you need?

    • Desmond: Who are you? (pause) I said, "Who are you?"
      Charlie: He's the guy who shot Sayid. Kate told us he lived down in that station Locke blew up. He's an Other.
      Hurley: I thought Locke killed that guy with the electro fence thingy.
      Desmond: You've got five seconds to talk or I fire this gun, Brother.
      Mikhail: That's a flare gun.
      Desmond: And how do you think it will feel taking a flare to the chest at this range?
      Mikhail: As your friend pointed out, I've already died once this week.

    • Charlie: Maybe we should just pull it out.
      Desmond: No, you'll just make it worse.
      Charlie: Have your forgotten what's at stake here? It's just another one of your flashes. Who's getting an arrow in the neck this time?
      Desmond: Lest you forget, she said my bloody name! She had a photo of me and my girlfriend! Do I understand? I understand better than the lot of you!

    • Sun: (to Juliet) I want to know about your research.
      Kate: Sun...
      Sun: What happens to pregnant women?
      Juliet: You're pregnant? Are you sure? How do you know?
      Sun: I asked you a question. Everyone else might be alright with you washing your clothes and eating our food, but I want to know what's going on. I want answers! What are you people doing? Why are you taking children? What happens to pregnant women on this island!? (pause) What happens to -
      Juliet: They die. They all die.

    • (About the dying parachutist)
      Desmond: Oh my god.
      Charlie: It's a branch. She must've hit it on the way down.
      Desmond: Uh, get her pack; we haven't got much in this first aid kit. See if there's anything we can use in there.
      Hurley: What if this is a rescue? What if she came for us? Wha-- I mean, is she gonna be okay? We can't let her--
      Desmond: Look, just go! Start looking!
      Jin: Jack.
      Charlie: We have to get her to Jack as soon as possible. She could be our way off the island.
      Desmond: No, if we move her we'll make it worse!
      Charlie: So we just let her breathe to death?

    • Charlie: What's she saying?
      Hurley: It's Spanish, dude!
      Desmond: You understand her then?
      Hurley: She says she's dying.

    • Woman: Your father is Mr. Paik? Of Paik Automotive? Very powerful family.
      Sun: I don't really have much to do with the family business.
      Woman: What about your husband's parents?
      Sun: His parents are dead.
      Woman: Really... ?
      Sun: Who are you?
      Woman: It would bring much shame if it was known that Mr. Paik's daughter married the son of a fisherman.
      Sun: I know that and it doesn't matter!
      Woman: Really? Did you know he was also the son of a prostitute?
      Sun: How dare you!
      Woman: I will be back here in three days. At five p.m. You will bring me one hundred thousand dollars. If love your husband as "madly" as you say you do, you will spare him the shame of learning the truth.

    • Jack: I wanted to see how you were doing with your pregnancy.
      Sun: Oh, I'm doing fine. A little tired, but that's normal, right?
      Jack: Sure. Any morning sickness?
      Sun: Not anymore.
      Jack: Any bleeding?
      Sun: Why are you asking me all these questions, Jack?
      Jack: I'm just checking in. Now that I'm back, I just wanted to make sure that you were doing okay.
      Sun: Thank you. I'm okay.

    • Juliet: (speaking into tape recorder) Ben, it's 6 A.M. on Saturday morning. Kwon is pregnant. The fetus is healthy and was conceived on island with her husband. He was sterile before they got here. I'm still working on getting samples from the other women; I should have Austen's soon. I'll report back when I know more. (she turns off the recorder) I hate you.

    • Sun: What do you think happened to Jack while he was with the Others? Since he's been back, he seems different.
      Kate: He says that he was pretty much a prisoner and the only reason why he cooperated was 'cause he thought they'd let him off the island.
      Sun: Do you believe him?
      Kate: Why wouldn't I?
      Sun: He came to me, asking about my pregnancy.
      Kate: Well, what would that have anything to do with ...
      Sun: What if - what if the Others want my baby? He's been there alone for over a week. How do we know he isn't working with them?
      Kate: He's not working with them.

    • Parachutist: Where am I?
      Hurley: Take it easy, you just hit a giant branch.
      Parachutist: Where am I!?
      Hurley: I don't know. You're on an island. Are you here to rescue us? Are there more of you? Can you make your phone work?
      Parachutist: Who are you?
      Hurley: Hugo Reyes. I crashed here on Oceanic Flight 815--a bunch of us survived. Is that why you're here? Were you looking for us?
      Parachutist: 815. Flight 815? The one from Sydney?
      Hurley: Yeah!
      Parachustis: No, that's not possible.
      Hurley: Yeah, I know. It wasn't easy, but we found food, and a hatch, and more food --
      Parachutist: No. No, Flight 815. They found the plane. There were no survivors. They were all dead.
      Hurley: What?

    • Sun: Why are you doing this?
      Juliet: What?
      Sun: Helping me.
      Juliet: Once upon a time, I told women that they were pregnant, and their faces ... it was the best news they ever got in their entire life. Then I came here. I've lost nine patients in the last three years. I'm helping you because I want to tell you that you and your husband got pregnant before you came here. I'm helping you because I want to give good news again.

    • Desmond: We need to bring Jack here.
      Charlie: It's an eight hour walk! One way!
      Desmond: Then I'll run.
      Charlie: Are you out of your mind? It's not safe. It's gonna be dark soon. Who knows who's out in this jungle!? In case you have forgotten, there are people on this island trying to kill us!
      Desmond: Nobody knows we're here!
      Hurley: (fires off a flare. long pause) Oops.
