1X11: ALL THE BEST COWBOYS HAVE DADDY ISSUES
At the end of the last episode, 1x10 Raised by Another, Claire and Charlie were kidnapped by Ethan who Hurley found out was not on the plane with the rest of the survivors.
At the caves, everyone is trying to figure out what's going on. Sayid lies on the ground while Jack tries to wrap his leg wound.
Hurley: He wasn't on the plane!
Kate: Who wasn't on the plane?
Hurley: Ethan! The Canadian guy! He's not on the passenger manifest.
Jack: Well, where the hell is he?
Hurley: I don't know! I saw him yesterday, but now-
Jack [standing and calling out]: Has anyone seen Ethan?
Kate [trying to talk over Jack]: Sayid's leg-
Jack: Has anyone seen Ethan?
Michael: Yeah, yeah. He went to get some wood. He took off on the path to the beach. Is he okay? What happened?
Jack: Where's Charlie?
Jack: Where's Charlie?
Locke: He went after Claire.
Quick cut to Jack and Locke who are running through the jungle trying to find Charlie and Claire. Locke notices something in the brush.
Locke points out a large blue bag.
Jack: She was moving back to the beach. Claire, that's hers. What happened? Where?
Locke: I don't know. Footprints. [Locke gestures to the ground.] At least three distinct sets all over the place. It looks like there might have been a struggle. [Locke notices something else on the ground.]
Jack: What? What is it?
Locke: Track marks here, and here.
Jack: Charlie. They were together.
Locke: I think they've been taken.
Jack [yelling]: Claire! Charlie!
Locke: Jack! Jack! [Locke raises a finger to his lips.] Shhh.
Opening title and credits roll.
Back in the jungle Locke and Jack are following the tracks.
Locke: Tracks are still fresh.
Jack: This doesn't make any sense. How can 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?
Locke: Sayid said there were others.
Jack: Sayid said that we're not alone.
Jack: Sayid's injured. We don't even know where he went. He's delirious.
Locke: I'm just telling you what the ground is telling me.
Jack: So which way is the ground telling you that they went?
Locke: Jack, we don't know what's going on here.
Jack: We know enough.
Locke: We need to prepare. We could be back at the caves in ten minutes. Organize a search party, get a-
Jack: Which way did they go, Locke?
Locke says nothing but points in a direction and Jack takes off. Locke stares after him.
Jack races through the jungle and a flashback ensues.
Flashback to an operating room. Jack is in scrubs, working on a patient.
OR attendant #1: Stats are dropping.
Jack [to himself]: Come on, come on.
OR attendant #2: BP's falling, she's bleeding out.
Jack: No, I've got the artery almost there.
OR attendant #2 [as the monitor flatlines]: She's in arrest. Jack: One milligram epi. Let's get the crash cart over here. [To an attendant.] All right, artery's sealed. Close her up.
OR attendant #1: V fib.
Jack [grabs the crash cart paddles]: Charged?
OR attendant #1: Charged.
Jack: Clear. [He zaps the patient.] Charged?
OR attendant #1: We're charged.
Jack: Clear. [He zaps her again with the paddles.]
He checks the monitor and starts compressions on her chest.
Jack [to himself]: Come on. Come on now, come on. Come on now. Come on back. Come on!
Dr. Shepard [from the shadows of the operating room]: Call it.
Jack [continues compressions]: Come on, come back, come back. Come on, baby. You can do this, come on. Come on.
Dr. Shepard [pulling his mask down]: Call it, Jack. [Jack looks at the monitor, still poised to continue compressions.] It's over, call it.
Jack [pulling his own mask down]: You call it.
Back at the caves, Locke is getting ready to go back into the jungle to look for Charlie and Claire. Kate packs her own bag.
Kate: You let him go alone?
Locke: Don't worry. I'll catch up. What's the word from the beach?
Kate: Nothing. Nobody has seen him. I'm coming with you.
Locke: I thought you might.
Locke hands a knife to Kate as Boone and Shannon approach.
Shannon [to Boone]: What are you doing? We need to get our water and get back to the beach. This isn't-
Boone [cutting her off]: 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 going to 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, we could use another hand if you're up for it.
Boone: I'm up for it.
Locke: Then let's get moving.
Shannon watches as Locke, Kate and Boone leave the caves.
Walt, Vincent and Michael meet up with Locke, Kate and Boone as they emerge from the caves.
Walt: I could take Vincent, and he could sniff something that belongs to Charlie. And I could help.
Michael: I said no, man. Hey, Locke. Hey look, you know a lot of us don't just want to sit here waiting for news.
Locke: Thanks but we're set. Anyone else is just going to slow us down.
Michael: Okay. Maybe I'll just put together another party.
Locke [dismissively]: Good idea. We're going north. I suggest you go south.
Michael and Walt watch as Locke, Kate and Boone walk into the jungle.
Michael [turning to go back to the caves]: Come on.
Jack is still running through the jungle, trying to find some sign of Charlie and Kate. He stops and looks around for a moment, and a flashback ensues.
Back in the operating room, the patient’s body is covered by an attendant and Jack and his father are left alone together.
Dr. Shepard: I never thought I'd see the day, Jack. You barge into my OR and work on my patient.
Jack: You didn't have to do this procedure.
Dr. Shepard: I don't have to do anything.
Jack: Yeah, of course you don't.
Dr. Shepard: I chose to do this procedure - this emergency procedure - because when this girl crashed in the ER they called me.
Jack: I was right upstairs.
Dr. Shepard: And you should have stayed upstairs. And how did you find out?
Jack: One of the nurses came to get me.
Dr. Shepard: Who? [No response from Jack.] Thank god I have you and some anonymous nurse to rescue me.
Jack: She told me that your hands were shaking.
Dr. Shepard: My hands were not-
Jack: You cut her hepatic artery-
Dr. Shepard: She was in a car crash, Jack. Her insides were a mess.
Jack: You made a mistake.
Dr. Shepard: They called me-
Jack: I don't care whether or not they called you. You made a mistake.
Dr. Shepard: Are you lecturing me? You tell me, if you were upstairs and I was in a restaurant having lunch then why did they call me? [He turns to leave.]
Jack: How many drinks did you have at lunch dad? [His father stops and turns back to look at him.
Back in the jungle, Jack is pulled from his thoughts by the arrival of Locke, Kate and Boone.
Locke: Jack! Jack! It's a good thing you were going in a circle. Not much of a search grid but we never would have found you otherwise.
Kate: Did you find anything?
Locke: You should go back to the caves. Sayid's leg.
Jack: I dressed Sayid's leg. And 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.
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.
Jack [not even considering Locke's advice]: Can we go now?
Locke: Follow me.
At the caves, Hurley and Michael are filling water bottles.
Michael: I'm trying to help and all the guy can tell me is 'go south'? Like what? I'm going to get in his way or something?
Hurley: We're all tweaked man, Locke's just feeling it like the rest of us.
Michael: So what? I've got five other guys who could go out there with me. Putting our necks on the line to find Charlie and Claire. All I'm saying is I'm getting sick of being treated like a second-class citizen around here ‘cause Mount Baldy can bag a boar.
Walt [catching Hurley and Michael off guard]: He knows a lot more than how to catch a boar. Mr. Locke's a warrior. He can hunt, he can track stuff and he's the only one who brought knives so if it were me, I'd listen to him.
Michael: Well I don't want you to. Understand? You stay with Hurley. I might not be a warrior but I am going south.
Walt and Hurley watch Michael walk away.
Hurley: Back home, I'm known as something of a warrior myself.
Back in the jungle, Locke is marking their progress by tying strips of a red tee-shirt around trees.
Locke: We mark our progress by line of sight. Tie these off so we don't get lost.
Boone: You can lead us back to camp, right?
Locke: If nothing happens to me.
Boone [holds out his hand for the tee-shirt]: Maybe I'd better take marker detail.
Kate and Jack catch up to Locke and Boone.
Locke: Not yet.
Jack: If you can't find the trail-
Locke: I'll pick it up again. We need to rest for a minute, to get our clarity back.
Jack: You're going to take a break? It's got to be almost four o'clock, when the sun sets there's-
Locke [holding up a watch]: It's four twenty-five. And yes, I'm taking a break.
Locke sits down and opens his bag while Jack watches impatiently.
Kate [to Jack]: Can I talk to you for a sec? [She leads Jack into the brush a little to give them some privacy.] Would it kill you to give the guy a little space?
Jack: It might.
Kate: Stop that.
Jack just rolls his eyes and turns to go back to where Boone and Locke are resting.
Kate: What's going on?
Jack: I didn't believe her. Claire. I gave her a sedative.
Kate: Jack, you can't-
Jack: She told me someone was after her, that she was being attacked and I... She just seemed so out of it. I thought that her pregnancy was amping up her stress and... I didn't believe her.
Kate just looks at Jack, waiting for him to continue. Before either of them can say anything more Locke yells out for them.
Where they were resting, Locke and Boone have found one of the finger tapes Charlie had around his fingers. This one reads "L".
Kate: What is it?
Locke: Look familiar?
Jack: It's Charlie's.
Boone: You think it just... came off?
Jack [shaking his head]: No, he's leaving us a trail. [Locke nods in agreement.]
The group continues through the jungle, encouraged by Charlie's hint.
Jack [finding another finger tape]: They went this way.
Locke: I'm not so sure. There's another trail here.
Jack: What do you mean 'another'?
Locke [gesturing to the ground]: These are footprints. People moved off this way.
Jack [holding up the finger tape]: Charlie's leaving these for us to follow. They went that way.
Kate: Unless Charlie isn't the one leaving them. If Ethan knows that we're behind him he could be setting up a dummy trail. Take off in one direction, double back in his own footprints.
Boone: Wait, now you're a tracker?
Locke: You're just full of surprises.
Jack: So we've got two trails. Let's split up, I'll take that one. [Jack gestures to the trail he wants to follow.]
Locke: No, we should stay together, Jack.
Jack: Why? We've got two trails and apparently two trackers.
Locke [considers]: Be careful.
Jack and Kate go in one direction while Locke and Boone go in the other.
Back at the caves, Walt is filling Sawyer in on all the latest news regarding Charlie and Claire.
Sawyer: Who got taken by what?
Walt: Charlie and Claire. They think Ethan took them.
Sawyer [bends down to tie his shoe]: Ethan took them, huh?
Sawyer: Took them why? And who the hell is Ethan?
Walt: I don't know. He wasn't on the list thing. The manifest.
Sawyer: You ever think he might have lied about his name?
Walt: It's stupid to lie about your name.
Sawyer [smirks to himself]: 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 [turns and starts to walk away]: Okay, then it must be true.
Walt:If you don't believe me, ask Sayid. He said we're not alone.
Sawyer [stops and turns back to look at Walt]: Sayid's back?
Walt nods and walks back to the caves as Sawyer stares after him with a hard look on his face.
In the jungle, Boone is tying another strip of the red tee shirt around a tree.
Boone: Red shirt.
Boone: Red shirt. You ever watch Star Trek?
Locke [shaking his head]: Not really.
Boone: The crew guys that would go down to the planet with the main guys - the captain and the guy with the pointy ears? They always wore red shirts and they always got killed.
Locke: Sounds like a piss-poor captain. [Boone smiles.]
Boone: What do you do in the real world, Mr. Locke?
Locke: It's John.
Locke: Why don't you guess?
Boone: Well, you're either a taxidermist or a hit man.
Locke [laughing]: I was a regional collections supervisor for a box company.
Boone: A box company?
Locke: They made boxes.
Boone [to himself]: Yeah, right.
In a different part of the jungle, Jack is hurrying through the jungle while Kate trails behind, trying to get him to slow down.
Kate: Would you please slow down! Jack!
Jack: You said they went this way.
Kate: I think they went this way. I'm not as good at this as Locke is.
Jack: So where did 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.
My dad was in the army. Ranger battalion, we were 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 his religion. [Kate checks the brush beside her for clues, then stands up and brushes past Jack.] That was real. Anything you want to share, Jack?
Flashback to Dr. Shepard's office.
Dr. Shepard: Thanks for coming in, Jack, have a seat.
Jack remains standing as his father puts a form in front of him with a pen to sign it.
Jack: What's it say?
Dr. Shepard: The truth. That a patient was brought to the ER following a car accident. Rushed into surgery with massive internal bleeding. You joined me and, in spite of our most heroic efforts, the patient succumbed to her injuries.
Jack: Looks like you fixed everything but the patient. You had no business being in OR.
Dr. Shepard: You really think I would have walked in there if I couldn't handle it?
Jack: You've done it before.
Dr. Shepard: That's right, I have, because I am perfectly capable of making-
Jack: How can you say that after what happened yesterday?
Dr. Shepard: The problem is not-
Jack: You were impaired!
Dr. Shepard: I know my limits.
Jack [walks to the office door]: I won't sign this.
Dr. Shepard: You're a part of a 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 going to matter. They'll strip me of my license.
Jack [nods]: Yes, they will.
Dr. Shepard [realizing how serious Jack is]: 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. And 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. [Dr. Shepard puts his hands on Jack's
chest and claps him on the shoulder. Jack is visibly moved by the gesture.] I know it's a long, long time coming. What happened yesterday I promise you will never happen again. And after what I've given... [He holds up the pen for Jack to sign the form.] This is not just about my career Jack, it's my life. [Jack takes the pen and signs the form.] Thank you, son. Thank you.
In one of the caves, Sawyer walks up on a resting Sayid. Sayid sits up quickly, wary of Sawyer who sits down in front of him on a suitcase.
Sawyer: Well, well, well. I don't know if you Islams got a concept of karma but I get the sense it just served you up a heaping platter of cosmic payback.
Sayid: What do you want?
Sawyer: Doctor Do-Right doesn't trust me with his antibiotics so I got to hump it up here everyday to get my meds. [Sawyer notices a set of mini-pliers sitting on the makeshift table beside them and picks them up.] You know, a less magnanimous man than I might just be thinking that 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 French woman.
Sawyer: The one who's been sending out a distress signal for sixteen years? She's alive?
Sayid: She was on a science expedition. She said they shipwrecked.
Sawyer: She alone?
Sayid: She said that there are others on this island.
Sawyer: Her people?
Sayid: No, she believed they had all gotten sick. She murdered her entire team.
Sawyer [shocked]: Right. And these others, who the hell are they?
Sayid: I don't know. She's never seen them.
Sawyer: Oh, she's never seen them but she knows they're there.
Sayid: If you believe her.
Sawyer: Do you?
Sayid: Maybe. Maybe not. But on my way back... I heard something in the jungle, surrounding me.
Sawyer: Something like what?
Sayid: Have you got something to say to me, Sawyer? Or are you going to continue asking me questions you know I don't have the answers to?
Sawyer [stands and picks up his bag]: Tide's coming up the beach. Plane hull's almost in the water. Kept your signal fire burning.
Sawyer leaves the cave.
On the beach, Hurley and Walt are playing backgammon.
Walt: Your blacks can't get in.
Hurley: Yeah, I know my blacks can't get in.
Walt: My roll.
Walt: I need a four and three.
Walt makes a show of rolling his dice, blowing on them and shaking them for a while.
Hurley: Dude, would you please roll?
Walt [rolls the dice and comes up with a four and a three]: Yes!
Walt: Your turn. [Hurley rolls the dice and still can't move his pieces. He hands the dice back to Walt.] It's okay. I wasn't very good when I first started playing either.
Hurley: I didn't just start playing. I took seventeenth in a tournament once.
Walt: Seventeenth's not very good.
Hurley: No, seventeenth is very good.
Walt [making a show of rolling his dice again]: Come on double sixes, double sixes. [He rolls two sixes.]
Hurley: Oh, you have got to be kidding me.
Walt: I'm lucky.
Hurley: No one is that lucky.
Walt: My dad said I was the luckiest person he ever knew.
Walt: Not Michael. Brian, my other dad. [Hurley just looks at him.] Yeah. Um... [Walt rolls again.] Yes! Yes! [Hurley gets up to leave.] Come on, one more game. Double or nothing.
Hurley: 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.
Boone and Locke continue their way through the jungle.
Boone: It's been about fifteen minutes since we've seen any sign. What are we following?
Locke: My gut.
Locke: So, Boone, what do you do in the real world?
Boone: I run a business.
Locke: What kind of business?
Boone: Er...uh... It's a wedding thing.
Boone: My mother has this empire. Martha Stewart of matrimony. I run one of the subsidiaries.
Locke: So who's running it now?
Boone: Guess it doesn't matter, does it?
Locke: I'm sure there are people who can handle it, temporarily. It's going to start raining in one minute.
Boone: One minute?
Locke: Give or take a few seconds. You should turn around, Boone, and head back.
Locke: Trail's been cold for a quarter-mile, dangerous terrain ahead. If you start now you'll make it back to camp before dark.
Boone: What about you?
Locke: I can take care of myself.
Boone: No, I'm not going to head back.
Locke: I admire your courage-
Boone: I'm not heading back.
Locke: All right.
Just then the rain starts in a huge downpour. Locke and Boone both stand in it for a moment, enjoying it.
Boone: They teach you how to predict the weather at a box company?
On the other trail, Kate and Jack come across another finger tape in a rocky area surrounded by steep embankments.
Jack [finding the finger tape]: I guess we were right. Where to now?
Jack hears a loud noise that sounds like an animal and interprets it as Claire screaming. He starts to run up a side of the embankment using a vine to help him climb. Kate has no other option but to follow.
Kate: Jack! Jack! Where are you going? Jack!
Jack: Didn't you hear her?
Kate: What? Hear who?
They continue climbing, but the rain has made the hill slippery and muddy. Jack loses his grip near the top of the embankment and slides down to the ground where he's winded. He rolls over and looks up to find Ethan standing over him. He puts a foot on Jack's chest and presses down.
Ethan: If you do not stop following me, I will kill one of them. Do you understand?
Jack grabs his foot and pushes him off him. They throw a few punches but Ethan is the better fighter and Jack ends up in a huge puddle, beaten and winded.
Ethan: No more warnings.
Ethan kicks him in the face, and Jack passes out.
Flashback to the hospital where Jack is walking down a corridor. He sees his father further down the hall and stops to watch. He's talking with another man. Jack flags down a nurse to find out who his father is talking to.
Andrea: Dr. Shepard.
Jack [acknowledging her as she passes]: Andrea. [Turns to get her attention.] Andrea! That man that my father's talking to- who is that?
Andrea: That's her husband. He's threatening to sue.
Andrea walks away and Jack watches his father talk to the woman's husband. The husband is clearly angry. Dr. Shepard reaches out and rests his hand on the husband's father the same way he did to Jack earlier.
At the bottom of the embankment, Kate is hovering over Jack, trying to get him to wake up.
Kate: Jack! Jack! Are you okay?
Jack [slowly coming around]: How long was I out?
Kate: I don't know, a few minutes. You slid down the rocks and everything.
Jack [stumbling to his feet]: Ethan was here.
Kate: You banged your head, Jack.
Jack: No, no - he was here.
Kate: You have to stop. The rain has washed away the trail. Even if he was here you've got- Jack!
Jack [starting to walk away unsteadily]: I'm not letting him do this.
Kate [following Jack]: Not letting him?!
Jack [running now]: Not again.
Another flashback. Jack and his father are in a boardroom, discussing with hospital officials what happened in the operating room with the patient.
Dr. Shepard: We realized that her blood pressure was beginning 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.
Hospital official: Okay. Thanks, Christian. Sorry about this formality.
Dr. Shepard: Of course.
Hospital official: Just one final detail. You were aware of the
patient's pregnancy when you went into the procedure?
Jack looks up at his father, shocked.
Dr. Shepard: Absolutely. The patient's husband had informed the attending in the ER. It was, however, extremely early in the pregnancy so our primary focus had to be on the mother.
Hospital official: Okay then. I think we're done here. Final report will be filed.
Dr. Shepard: Okay.
Jack [speaking up as everyone around the table is getting ready to leave]: I need to... revise my statement. [Everyone looks at him expectantly.] I didn't come into the OR until well into the procedure.
Dr. Shepard: Jack-
Jack [ignoring his father]: I was warned by one of the nurses that my father was operating... under the influence.
Dr. Shepard: 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 crises which led to her death.
Dr. Shepard stares at him in disbelief, while Jack struggles with his emotions.
Jack and Kate continue through the jungle. Kate pushes through some brush and stops short when she comes upon Charlie, blindfolded, and hanging from a tree with a noose around his neck. He's not moving. Jack pushes through the brush and sees Charlie as well and runs over to grab his legs in an attempt to hold him up and relieve the pressure on his neck.
Jack: No! You've got to cut him down!
As Jack holds Charlie up by the legs, Kate tries to climb the vines next to where he's hanging.
Jack: Come on, Charlie. Hold on there!
Kate tries to reach Charlie to cut him down with the knife that Locke gave her but can't.
Kate: I can't reach! Pull him over!
Jack shuffles Charlie over as best he can, while Kate hacks away at the vine. It gives way and Charlie and Jack fall to the ground. Jack quickly starts performing CPR.
Jack: He's not breathing. Come on! Breathe, Charlie! Breathe!
He continues breathing into Charlie's mouth and pumping his chest. Kate holds Charlie's hand.
Jack: Come on. Come on.
Kate: Jack. Jack...
Jack [starting to pound on Charlie's chest]: Come on, Charlie! Come on!
He continues to pound on Charlie's chest, but it's too much for Kate. She starts to cry and turns away.
Jack: Come on, Charlie! Come on!
Kate [trying to get Jack to stop]: Jack, Jack! Jack- stop! He's not coming!
Jack pulls back and stops pounding as Kate cries.
Kate [whispering]: It's okay. It's okay.
Jack refuses to give up and starts pounding again.
Jack: No. No. Come on! Come on!
He pounds harder and harder on Charlie's chest as Kate starts crying again. Suddenly, with one mighty whomp on Charlie's chest, his eyes open and he gasps, alive. Jack and Kate laugh and cry, holding Charlie, who is understandably confused and shocked.
Jack: Just breathe; breathe deep.
Back at the caves, Jack and Kate sit beside Charlie who is staring into the fire, not saying anything.
Walt [spotting his father arriving back to the caves and hugging him]: Dad! They brought Charlie back but he hasn't said anything since he came back.
Michael [watching Kate put a blanket around Charlie]: They find Claire?
Michael looks over at Hurley who just shakes his head.
Jack [inspecting the marks around Charlie's neck]: Does that hurt? How's your breathing? [No response from Charlie.] Charlie, you've got to talk to me. We're going to go back out and look for Claire the moment the sun comes up, and I could really use your help. Anything that you can tell me about what you remember, where you were going… Did you see or hear-?
Charlie: I didn't see anything. Hear anything. I don't remember. Anything. Claire...
Charlie: That's all they wanted.
Jack: They? I don't-
Charlie: All they wanted was Claire.
By the waterfall Shannon approaches Kate, worried.
Shannon: They aren't back yet.
Kate: I'm sure they just made camp for the night. If there's anyone on this island that your brother is safe with, it's Locke.
In the jungle, Boone and Locke are still hiking and searching.
Boone: Are we lost?
Locke: No, Boone, we're not lost.
Boone: Sorry, it's just I don't see how you can still be following this trail. I think we should go back, man.
Locke: Don't you feel it?
Boone: Feel what?
Boone: All right, John. I'm going to follow the strips back.
Locke: Suit yourself. [Boone turns to start heading back to camp.] Boone! You need this more than I do. [Gesturing to the flashlight.]
Locke throws the flashlight to Boone who misses it. It falls to the ground with a strange, metallic thud. They get down on the ground to see what the flashlight fell on.
Boone: What is that?
They pound on it more.
Boone: Would that be part of the plane? Part of the wreckage?
Locke continues to prod it with his knife, listening to the sounds.
Boone: What is that?
Locke: That's what we're going to find out.
Together they start to clear the dirt and mud off what they found.
