Kate: [after Arzt died] You ok?
Hurley: That was messed up. He just... exploded, in front of us.

Mr. Artz: And then my third wife, she says - get this - she says, "I didn't sign up for this". Now you tell me, what the hell is that even supposed to mean?
[Hurley doesn't reply]
Mr. Artz: What, am I boring you?
Hurley: Huh?
Mr. Artz: You know what? I'm sorry. I'm sorry I'm not cool enough to be part of your merry little band of adventurers.
Hurley: What?
Mr. Artz: I know a clique when I see it. I teach high school, pally! You know, you people think you're the only ones on this island doing anything of value. Well, I've got news for you. There were forty other survivors of this plane crash and we are all people, too.
Hurley: Okaaaaay...

Michael: [after finding the gun tucked in Sawyers shirt] Here's your shirt. You should put that on before you burn.

Leslie: Did you hear about the guy who invented nitroglycerin? he blew his freakin' face off! His lab assistant came in the next morning, found his boss' body, and said, "Huh.

- Damn it.

- You think...
- Just... stay out here.
- I'm gonna stay out here and hang with arnzt.

Hurley: Dude.

Walter: How come you and my mom didn't stay together?
Michael: We tried, but it just didn't work out. Our lives, out interests just went in different directions.
Walter: How come I never saw you?
Michael: Cause your mom didn't want me to. She did what she thought was best for you.
Walter: She was wrong.

Claire: [looking at the scratch on Danielle's arm, remembering fighting her in her sleep] When did I do that? Why did I scratch you?

Michael: Oh hey, this is yours.
[gives Jin his watch back]
Jin: [hands watch back to Michael, and points to Michael] You.
Michael: No, man.
Jin: You.
[puts it in his hand and closes it]
Michael: Thank you.

Locke: [Explaining why he wanted to let the island monster drag him off] I believe that I was being tested.
Jack: Tested?
Locke: Yeah, tested. I think... that's why you and I don't see eye-to-eye sometimes, Jack. Because you're a man of science.
Jack: Yeah. And what does that make you?
Locke: Me, well, I'm a man of faith. Do you really think all this... is an accident? That we, a group of strangers, survived, many of us with just superficial injuries? Do you think we crashed on this place by coincidence, especially this place? We were brought here for a purpose, for a reason, all of us. Each one of us was brought here for a reason.
Jack: Brought here? And who brought us here, John?
Locke: The island. The island brought us here. This is no ordinary place, you've seen that, I know you have. But the island chose you, too, Jack. It's destiny.
Jack: Did you talk with Boone about destiny, John?
Locke: Boone was a sacrifice that the island demanded. What happened to him at that plane was a part of a chain of events that led us here -- that led us down a path -- that led you and me to this day, to right now.
Jack: And where does that path end, John?
Locke: The path ends at the hatch. The hatch, Jack -- all of it -- all of it happened so that we could open the hatch.
Jack: No, no, we're opening the hatch so that we can survive.
Locke: Survival is all relative, Jack.
Jack: I don't believe in destiny.
Locke: [pause] Yes, you do. You just don't know it yet.

Hurley: Dude, you got some... Arnzt on you.

[on the raft; Walt is asleep]
Sawyer: Know what I like about you, Mike? You got the patience of a saint.
Michael: Yeah? Why you say that?
Sawyer: I've seen the way he talks to you. The way he runs around, does whatever the hell he wants. I'd have shown him the back of my hand a long time ago.
Michael: You would, huh?
Sawyer: Hell of a lot cheaper than a shrink.
Michael: Is that what your father did to you? Show you the back of his hand?
Sawyer: My daddy never got a chance to beat me. He shot himself when I was eight.
Michael: [after a pause] That why you want to die, man?
Sawyer: What?
Michael: Since the day you told me you wanted on this raft, I couldn't figure it out. Why does a guy who only cares about himself want to risk his life to save everyone else? Yeah... way I see it, there's only two choices. You're either a hero, or you want to die.
Sawyer: [gruffly] Well... I ain't no hero, Mike.

- When did I do that?
- Why did I scratch you?

- They're coming. We don't have time to argue about who risks their life, so...
- We let fate decide. works for me.
- What about you?
- You wanna carry some dynamite?
- What?
- You got some arnzt on you.
- Short sticks carry the packs.

Hurley: Whoever named this place Dark Territory? Genius.

- saw that his mentor had detonated, and he said: "I guess this stuff does work."
- We're not gonna take more of this stuff than we need, because nitroglycerine is extremely temperamental.
- So we just...

Jack: Everybody wants me to be a leader until I make a decision that they don't like.

- All right.
- Maybe this isn't the best way.
- It's the only way, Jack.

- Oh, I haven't named him yet.
- May I hold him?
- Why do you need Sayid?
- You don't want me to hold him?
- No, I just fed him.
- I don't think it's a good idea. Ok?
- Please!

- I'm removing the driest pieces to minimize our risk transporting it.
- You ever play operation?
- Sure. "Don't touch the sides."
- I always...
- Got nailed...
- On the funny bone.

Tom: [about Walt] We're gonna have to take the boy.

- Yeah. Go in the jungle, and get dynamite and blow open a hatch, and then hide everyone inside.
- God knows how long that dynamite has been out there.
- So unless you want to blow up,
- I'm coming with you.
- Good luck. same to you.
- See you soon. yes, you will.
