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. Charlie: [to Eko, who is touching a rotting corpse] What do you think you're doing? [Eko doesn't reply] Charlie: You know this guy? Mr. Eko: This man... saved my life. Sawyer: [to Jin] It's Lord of the Flies time. Hurley: I *do* exercise. Carmen Reyes: Falling down is not exercise. Hurley: [Jack is concerned about Hurley showing Rose the bunker] She's cool, she won't tell anyone. Rose: Honey, I don't even know what I would say. Locke:
Yeah, Jack, I've been running through the jungle toward the sound of gunfire because I don't care about Michael.
Locke: [to Sawyer, using his birth name] See ya, James. Sayid: This music is quite depressing. Sawyer: You and me ain't done, Zeke. Hurley: [about Arzt's first name] Dude, Leslie's a bitchin' name. Hurley: Dude, you've got some Artz on you. Jack: Sorry, man, I know this hurts. Michael told me you pulled the bullet out with your bare hands. You'll have to show me how to do that sometime. Sawyer: [whispering] Where is she? Jack: What? I didn't... Sawyer: [whispering] Where is she? Jack: You mean Kate. She's been watching over you for the past 24 hours straight. The only way I could get rid of her was to send her out to get some food for you. Sawyer: [whispering] I love her. I love her. Sawyer: What'd she do to you? Jack: What? Sawyer: Kate, what'd she do? Jack: She didn't do anything. Sawyer: Right, you're yelling at her because she wanted to help get Mike back makes a lot of sense. Jack: Why don't you go back and see if I hurt her feelings? Sawyer: I'm just saying. Jack: Yeah, I know, you love her. Sawyer: What'd you say? Shannon: So, does all this - the tent, flowers - mean that we're serious? Sayid: Quite definitely not. I do this for all the girls I meet on deserted islands. Claire: You know, I think everybody knows more about my baby than me. Locke: Everybody? Claire: Charlie read me the riot act last night for waking him. And as mad as it made me - turns out he was right. You know, it's like we're playing mum and dad to this baby. Yet, I don't remember marrying him. [Locke laughs] Claire: No, seriously. I mean, we're practically strangers, him and me. For all I know, Charlie could be some religious freak. Locke: Yeah, I seriously doubt that. Claire: Then why is he carrying around a Virgin Mary statue? Locke: What? Claire: You know, one of the little statues? He says he found it in the jungle. Locke: Hmm, how about that? Ana-Lucia Cortez: How about you shut your mouth and get your buddy over here moving? Michael:
What happened to you people? You want us to take you back with us? Fine. But you want me to keep quiet then you need to tell me why I have to.
