LOCKE: The tracks are still fresh.

JACK: This doesn't make any sense. How could one man drag off two people, one of them pregnant?

LOCKE: You're asking the wrong question. Not how, why?

JACK: You think it was Ethan?

LOCKE: Certainly feels like it was Ethan, doesn't it?

JACK: By himself? How?

LOCKE: We can't account for all of our people. And more importantly, who's to say they're even our people?

JACK: What?

LOCKE: Sayid said there were others.

JACK: Sayid said that we're not alone.

LOCKE: Semantics.

SHANNON: What are you doing? We need to get our water and get back to the beach.

BOONE: I heard you're forming a search party. Can I help?

SHANNON: This is a deserted island. There's no choppers, no Amber alerts. How exactly are you gonna find them?

LOCKE: By following Ethan's trail. No one can walk through the wilderness without leaving signs -- bending blades of grass, breaking twigs -- especially with captives in tow. And yes, I could use another hand if you're up for it.

BOONE: I'm up for it.

LOCKE: Then let's get moving.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: Never thought I'd see the day, Jack. You barge into my O.R. You work on my patient.

JACK: You didn't have to do this procedure.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: I don't have to do anything.

JACK: Yeah, of course you don't.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: I chose to do this procedure -- this emergency procedure -- because when this girl crashed in t E.R., they called me.

JACK: I was right upstairs.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: You should have stay upstairs. And how did you find out?

JACK: One of the nurses came to get me.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: Who? Oh, thank god I have you and some anonymous nurse to rescue me.

JACK: She told me that your hands were shaking.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: My hands were not -

JACK: You cut her hepatic artery.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: She was in a car crash, Jack. Her insides were a mess.

JACK: You made a mistake.


JACK: I don't care whether or not they called you, you made a mistake.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: Are you lecturing me?

JACK: Oh, yeah.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: You tell me, if you were upstairs, and I was in a restaurant having lunch, then why did they call me?

JACK: How many drinks did you have at lunch, Dad?

KATE: Did you find anything?


LOCKE: You should go back to the caves -- Sayid's leg.

JACK: I dressed Sayid's leg. You found me. We can find Charlie and Claire. Now, do we have a trail to follow or not?

LOCKE: Jack, this was my fault.

JACK: What?

LOCKE: I hunted with Ethan, I spent time with him. I never sensed anything ... off. But for everything that I know about hunting and tracking, whoever he is, he knows more. If we catch up with him, I don't want anything to happen to the only trained physician on the island. So go back, be the doctor. Let me be the hunter.

SAWYER: Who got taken by what?

WALT: Charlie and Claire. They think Ethan took 'em.

SAWYER: "Ethan took 'em"?

WALT: Yeah.

SAWYER: Took 'em why? And who the hell's Ethan?

WALT: I don't know. He wasn't on the list thing, the manifest.

SAWYER: Ever think he might have lied about his name?

WALT: It's stupid to lie about your name.

SAWYER: All righty, Tattoo, where do you think Ethan came from?

WALT: Maybe he was already on the island before we were.

SAWYER: Got yourself one hell of an imagination, kid.

WALT: There could be lots of other people on the island.

SAWYER: So a tribe of evil natives planted a ringer in the camp to kidnap a pregnant girl and a reject from VH1 has-beens. Yeah, fiendishly clever. And why am I getting the evening news from a six-year-old?

WALT: I'm ten.

SAWYER: Okay, then it must be true.

WALT: If you don't believe me, ask Sayid. He said we're not alone.

SAWYER: Sayid's back?

BOONE: What do you doing the real world, Mr. Locke?

LOCKE: It's John.

BOONE: John.

LOCKE: Why don't you guess?

BOONE: Well, you're either a taxidermist or a hit man.

LOCKE: I was a ... Regional Collections Supervisor for a box company.

BOONE: A box company?

LOCKE: They made boxes.

BOONE: Yeah, right.

JACK: So where'd you pick up the tracking skills, Kate? Was that before or after you were on the run?

KATE: I'm trying to help, Jack.

JACK: You know what might help? A little honesty. Just give me something real --anything.

KATE: My dad was in the army -- Ranger Battalion. He was stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington State. We'd go hiking together. One day we spent eight hours tracking deer. Being in the woods, it was like -- it was like his religion. That was real. Anything you wanna share, Jack?

JACK: I won't sign this.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: You were part of team, Jack. I'm not the only one on the hook for this. You called me off. You were the surgeon of record when she died. Look, accidents happen in surgeries all the time, Jack. That's the truth, and you know it. But if you contradict this report, if you mention alcohol, well, that's the only fact that's gonna matter. They'll strip me of my license.

JACK: Yes ... they will.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: I know I have been hard on you, but that is how you make a soft metal into steel. That is why you are the most gifted young surgeon in this city. I mean, this --this is a career that is all about the greater good. I've had to sacrifice certain aspects of my relationship with you so that hundreds and thousands of patients will live because of your extraordinary skills. I know it's a long ... long time coming. What happened yesterday, I promise you, will never happen again. I mean, after what I've given ... This isn't -- this is not just about my career, Jack, it's my life.

SAWYER: Well, well, well. I don't know if you Islams got a concept of karma, but I get the sense this island just served you up a heaping platter of cosmic payback.

SAYID: What do you want?

SAWYER: Dr. Do-Right doesn't trust me with his antibiotics so I gotta hump it up here every day to get my meds. You know, a less magnanimous man than I might just be thinking he could beat the ever-living snot out of you right now without fear of reprisal.

SAYID: You want a shot, take it. But know that I left this camp out of shame for what I did to you. It was never my intention to return.

SAWYER: Sorry, fresh out of sweet forgiveness. If it wasn't your intention to return, then why did you?

SAYID: I was taken prisoner by the Frenchwoman.

WALT: I need a four-three.

HURLEY: Dude, would you please roll?

WALT: Yes!


WALT: Your turn. It's okay. I wasn't very good when I first started playing, either.

HURLEY: I didn't just start playing. I took 17th in a tournament once.

WALT: Seventeenth is not very good.

HURLEY: No, seventeenth is very good.

WALT: Come on, double sixes, double sixes. Yes!

HURLEY: Oh, you gotta be kidding me.

WALT: Come on, one more game. Double or nothing.

HURLEY: I can't. I got a meeting.

WALT: A meeting?

HURLEY: Yeah, a meeting.

WALT: You owe me twenty thousand dollars.

HURLEY: You'll get it.

LOCKE: It's gonna start raining in one minute.

BOONE: One minute?

LOCKE: Give or take a few seconds.


BOONE: They teach you how to predict the weather at a box company?

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: She had massive internal hemorrhaging. We realized that her blood pressure was continuing to drop precipitously. At which point, the patient went into cardiac arrest. Of course, every effort was made to resuscitate her, but the severity of her injuries -- the amount of internal bleeding -- made that impossible. Now, in my professional opinion, ladies and gentlemen -- and that's all I have -- by the time I was called in, the damage was irreversible.

HEAD DOCTOR: Okay. Thanks, Christian. Sorry about this formality.


HEAD DOCTOR: Just one final detail. You were aware of the patient's pregnancy when you went into the procedure?

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: Absolutely. The patient's husband had informed the attending in the E.R. It was, however, extremely early in the pregnancy so our primary focus had to be on the mother.

HEAD DOCTOR: Okay, then, I think we're done here. Our final report will be filed.


JACK: I need to --ahem -- revise my statement. I didn't come into the O.R. until well into the procedure.


JACK: I was warned by one of the nurses that my father was operating ... under the influence.

CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD: Jack, this is not --

JACK: By the time I got there, it was clear that my father was not only incapacitated, but that he had also ... severed the patient's hepatic artery, which, in my professional opinion, caused the crisis which led to her death.
