JACK: Should I talk to Benjamin?

JULIET: Sorry?

JACK: Should I talk to Benjamin? Because I'm starting to think that you're just the person who brings me my food.

JULIET: You can talk to him all you want. But he won't tell you anything.

JACK: You work for him?

JULIET: No, I don't work for him.

JACK: He's in charge.

JULIET: Well, it doesn't work that way over here, Jack. We make decisions together.

JACK: Really? Because when I was holding that broken plate at your neck he seemed happy to just let you die. I mean, it felt like he made that decision on his own.

SAWYER: Been on this rock long enough to realize they ain't in the business of shooting each other. We did it. Our team.

KATE: You smiling?

SAWYER: Damn right I'm smiling. Because we just got our ticket out of here.

SAWYER: There's juice pumping into this box from somewhere. Next time someone comes to pull me out, I'm going to wait until they step in my little swimming hole, and I grab them. Zap! They fall back from the shock -- I snag the keys. Bet the bears never thought of that.

KATE: You're both going to get electrocuted.

SAWYER: Yeah, I felt the jolt. I can take it. The other guy -- he ain't going to be ready for it. What, you think I'm crazy?

KATE: No, I'm actually impressed.

SAWYER: Well, wipe the stars out of eyes, sweetheart -- because we're going to do this.

KATE: So, what about Jack?

SAWYER: What about him? We don't even know if he's here. Hell, we don't even know if he's alive. We've got to take care of us. It's every man for himself, Freckles.

DESMOND: Don't mind me, brother. I'm just going to take one of your clubs. Hurley said it would be alright.

PAULO: Hurley, huh? Does this mean you're off to save the day?

DESMOND: So, uh, I can take one of these?

PAULO: Take the five iron; I never use it. That way when you die in the jungle, doing whatever you're doing, I don't have to go looking for it.

SAWYER: Did you just kill that bunny?

BEN: You know what a pacemaker is?


BEN: They stick them in the tickers of people who've had by-pass work who's heart's need just a little jump -- a kickstart. The rabbit had a small pacemaker set to deliver its kickstart should it get too excited, or anxious, or frightened -- or should it try to escape. Assuming you were telling the truth about your age and weight your resting heart rate should be about 70 beats per minute. Your active heart rate, however, that would be about 140 -- which is the point at which your pacemaker will cause your heart to explode. Which is how I know that you're going to start behaving now. The watch monitors your pulse. If you get within 15 beats of your danger zone it'll start to beep. If and when it beeps, you're going to want to relax yourself. Do some deep breathing, some yoga.

SAWYER: If you want me dead, why don't you just shoot me and get it over with?

BEN: Because we're not killers, James. Oh, and one other thing -- Kate...

SAWYER: You touch her, I swear...

BEN: You tell her what we did, what we put in you -- that we're watching you -- you tell her any of these things -- we'll put one in her, too.

KATE: What's that?

SAWYER: It's just my watch. It's busted.

KATE: When did you get a watch?

KATE: Are you okay?

SAWYER: Dandy. Guy hits like a girl. No offense.

KATE: Why did he do that?

SAWYER: Hell if I know. These people ever make any sense to you?

JULIET: I'm, I'm sorry they -- they, uh, had to put handcuffs on you. Um, I'm a fertility doctor. I'm not used to death.

JACK: What was her name?

JULIET: Cole; it was short for Colleen. I shouldn't have, uh -- I should have come to get you sooner.

JACK: It wouldn't have mattered. There wasn't any more that you could have done. She was -- she was dead before you put her on the table.

JULIET: Are you just saying that to make me feel better?

JACK: I don't care about making you feel better.

JACK: Who's x-rays are those? Outside? Those are spinal x-rays. They belong to a man about 40 years old. And whoever he is, he has a very large tumor on his L-4 vertebrae. And I just happen to be a spinal surgeon. So, you tell me, Juliet, who am I here to save?

BEN: Not much further, James -- just at the top of the next rise.

SAWYER: What's up there?

BEN: Something I want you to see.

SAWYER: That little place you always wanted, George?

BEN: Sorry?

SAWYER: What, don't you read? It's from Of Mice and Men. You'd like it -- puppy's get killed.

SAWYER: Bring me up here to kill me? Make that thing you put inside of me blow up my damn heart?

BEN: Your heart's not going to blow up, James. The only thing we put inside you was doubt. Oh, the watch is a heart rate monitor, but nothing more. Look. We gave him a sedative, not a pacemaker.

SAWYER: How do I know that's the same bunny? That you didn't just paint an 8 on another one?

BEN: You don't.

SAWYER: You son-of-a-bitch.

BEN: The rabbit wasn't the thing I wanted to show you.

SAWYER: What the--?

BEN: You ever been to Alcatraz -- take the tour? Right now you're standing on a small island roughly twice the size of Alcatraz. And that over there -- that's your island -- the one you've come to know and love. I just wanted you to know there's nowhere to run.

SAWYER: You did all this just to -- just to keep me in a damn cage?

BEN: We did all this because the only way to gain a con man's respect is to con him. And you're pretty good, Sawyer. We're a lot better. Funny thing is, us telling you about the pacemaker wasn't what kept you in line. It was when I threatened her. You work so hard to make her think you don't care -- that you don't need her, but, "A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody. It don't make no difference who the guy is, long as he's with you. I tell you, I tell you a guy gets too lonely and he gets sick."

SAWYER: What the hell are you talking about?

BEN: It's from Of Mice and Men. Don't you read? Come on, let's get you back to your cage.
