  15. "Jack. About a week before we all got on the plane I got to talking to this man in a bar in Sydney. He was American, too. A doctor. I've been on some benders in my time, but this guy--he was going for an all time record. It turns out this guy has a son--his son's a doctor, too. They had some kind of big time falling out. The guy knew it was his fault even though his son was back in the States thinking the same damn thing. See, kids are like dogs, you knock them around enough they'll think they did something to deserve it. Anyway, there's a pay phone in this bar. And this guy, Christian, tells me he wishes he had the stones to pick up the phone, call his kid, tell him he's sorry, that he's a better doctor than he'll ever be--he's proud, and he loves him. I had to take off, but something tells me he never got around to making that call. Small world, huh?" Sawyer
  16. The Marshal, Edward Mars, explains why he needs to bring 5 guns on the plane with him and why there is a toy plane in his Halliburton. From Lost Hatch
  17. "That's a good story, you want to tell it, huh Kate? This belonged to her childhood sweetheart who she got killed a couple of years ago when she was on the run. Poor guy--a wife, a 2 year old kid. What was his name? Hmm? Well, somewhere along the way during the 3 years I was chasing her, she's starts calling me, at my house, and whining on about her mitigating circumstances. But what she's really doing is taunting me. So, I tell her that I've got whats-his-name's little toy airplane in a safe deposit box in New Mexico. So, she somehow figures out which bank, which safe deposit box. She seduces some idiot to rob the damn bank, and then she puts a bullet in her new friend because she's done using him. But she leaves all the money. She just takes the plane because that's the one thing in the whole world that Kate does care about. She has no attachments, and I think she's telling herself she needs it to atone for killing her boyfriend, whats-his-name. God, Kate, c'mon what was his name?" Edward Mars
  18. Kate wants to join the trek to the Black Rock for old time's sake and because she's bad at goodbyes.

Questions:
  1. How did Rousseau deliver her own baby? Wasn't her science team still alive? Couldn't someone else do it?
  2. Has Rousseau really never seen the hatch before? Has she seen other hatches, or the other stations on the island?
  3. How did Kate get the other key to the safety deposit box?
  4. Why did Locke want Jack to let him go? What did he think was going to happen?
  5. How did the Black Rock get there?
Favorites:
  1. "Well that's three reasons to go right there." Hurley
  2. "Nice speech.. If you want to keep a secret don't tell the fat guy." Arzt
  3. "Unless you want to blow up, I'm coming with you." Arzt
  4. "I never asked you what you did back in the real world, so I'm taking a wild guess--lumberjack." Jack
  5. "You think we're going to run out of food or water? Am I supposed to put the kid out of his misery?" Sawyer
  6. "Hey, Locke, do you have a message? It's going on the raft. You know: Dear mom, Everything's fine. I'm on the island, unless, of course, the black smoke people turn up. Love, your name here. For when they get rescued, they can contact your family." Charlie "Message in a bottle. That's sweet." Locke
  7. "Don't look at it. Dude! Don't look at it!" Hurley

  11. "Well, alright. Now, are we going to get off this rock or stand around talking about it?" Sawyer
  12. "Dude, I thought you were dead." Hurley, to Arzt.
  13. Walt giving Shannon the dog.
  14. "Can you describe him please?" Airport Cop "Um, Arab?" Shannon
  15. Vincent following the raft.
Notes:
  1. Jack tells Ana Lucia that he dad is dead. Ana Lucia worked for Christian shortly before she met Jack in the airport bar in Sydney.
  2. When Jack tells Ana Lucia that he's not married anymore, it is the first time we learn that his marriage with Sarah was no longer.
  3. When we see Sawyer at the Police Station in Sydney, this was just after we saw him being brought in during Boone's flashback in Hearts & Minds.
  4. Sawyer telling Jack that he knew his dad is the first time two people on the island realize that they have a connection before the crash.

Just checking out some Lost blogs and came across yours. Very nicely done. Thought about the Black Rock: the island moved before and where the Black Rock was in the ocean, the island sort of just appeared out of nowhere under it. That explains how it is so far ashore in the jungle.

That is definitely possible. It appears to be the only logical explanation for a ship being in the middle of an island, other than a tsunami. It also seems to be the cause of the Nigerian drug plane. Hopefully we'll get some clear answers in the near future.
