1X12: WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE
==========================


[Shot of Kate climbing down a tree. She hears a noise and stops. Continues walking, hears the sound again and picks up rock and throws it.]

Sawyer [off camera in the jungle, then stumbling into the clearing]

Ow. Son of a bitch. What the hell are you doing?

Kate

What the hell are you doing?

Sawyer

It's my knee. You practically busted my damn knee.

Kate

You stalking me, now?

Sawyer

Stalking you? I was protecting you.

Kate

From what? Southern perverts?

Sawyer

Yeah, whatever. I can't believe you.

Kate

It's not that bad.

Sawyer

It's my knee. I'll tell you how bad it is. What the hell you doing out here anyway?

Kate

Everyone's been eating a lot. This is the only place the trees aren't picked clean.

Sawyer

Yeah, well, you shouldn't be out here alone. Not after what happened. . .

Kate

I'm fine. I can take care of myself.

Sawyer

Oh, of course. (Mocking Kate): I don't need protection. I can take care of myself. Me Kate. Me throw rock.

Kate (hearing something)

Shhhh.

Sawyer

What? You smell blood on the wind?

Kate

You don't hear that?

[They move toward the sound. The sound of water gets louder as Kate and Sawyer emerge from some bushes to reveal a large spring with a waterfall. Sawyer starts running toward it taking off his shirt.]

Kate

What are you doing?

Sawyer

I need to soak my sore knee. C'mon, Freckles, after all we've been through on this damn island, don't we deserve something good? What? You going to say no? You some sort of no fun, navel-gazing, mopey type?

[Sawyer climbs in. Kate takes off her pants and gets in.]

Sawyer

Well, [happy she's taking her pants off]. . . it's chilly. C'mon girl, woohoo. It's nice, huh? C'mon, what you got? C'mon, let's go up the rocks.

[Sawyer and Kate frolicking in the spring. They climb up some rocks and dive in. More frolicking until they see two dead bodies from the plane still strapped in their seats.]

COMMERCIAL BREAK

Tivo return time 0:06

[They surface from the spring, sputtering.]

Sawyer

Are you okay?

Kate

Yeah. Yeah, you?

Sawyer

Yeah, I'm going to go check them out.

Kate

Check them out for what?

Sawyer

See what they got on them?

Kate (disgusted-like)

Sawyer.

[They dive down and Sawyer gets a wallet off the dead guy. Kate sees the silver case. They surface.]

Sawyer

Hey, I got myself a wallet.

Kate

You're disgusting.

Sawyer

He ain't gonna miss it.

Kate

Help me get that case.

Sawyer

Oh, I'm disgusting, but you're not?

Kate

It's mine.

[They dive under and struggle a bit to get the case which Sawyer pulls free.]

Sawyer [handing Kate the case]

Wouldn't happen to have your key on you would you?

[Kate looking the case over]

Sawyer

That case ain't yours, is it?

Kate

No.

Sawyer

Well, you wouldn't mind if I just take it.

Kate

I don't care.

Sawyer

Not what it looks like. [Sawyer watches as Kate puts her pants back on]. Something you want to tell me about this little suitcase, Freckles?

Kate

Take it.

[Kate walks away.

Then a shot of the ocean. Big waves are pounding. People trying to rescue luggage that's being washed off the beach.]

Sayid

Everything is getting washed out to sea. This can't be normal. The tide shifting so suddenly, rising in so short a time.

Jack

There's a lot not normal around here. At the rate this beach is eroding this fuselage is going to be underwater in a matter of days. We need to get all this stuff off the beach before nightfall.

Sayid

I just hope that moving up the coast will make a difference.

Jack

It would make a difference if everyone moved inland.

Sayid

I think you'll find people slightly wary of entering the jungle after what happened to the pregnant girl. Not to mention whatever that thing is.

Jack

Sayid, I need you to take me back to the French woman, Rousseau. Claire's still out there. Now, Rousseau mentioned that there are others on this island.

Sayid

Her mind is gone.

Jack

You heard them yourself.

Sayid

I don't know what I heard.

Jack

You said that. . .

Sayid

The wind, Jack. It was the wind playing tricks.

Jack

Okay, then, what about the papers that you took from her. . . the documents, the maps. I mean, isn't there anything here that. . .

Sayid

I'm (good?) at mathematics and decryption, but these equations are beyond anything I've ever seen. There are these notes in French accompanying some of the maps and diagrams. If I could translate them I might be able to make sense of it, but. . .

Jack

What?

Sayid

Perhaps some things are best left untranslated.

Jack [pointing at Charlie]

Yeah? Maybe you should tell him that.

[Shot of Charlie looking sad.

Shot of people still getting luggage out of the surf.

Shot of Shannon reading a magazine. Boone comes up.]

Boone

Glad to see you're doing something productive with your time.

Shannon

Where have you been?

Boone

What do you mean where have I been?

Shannon

You and Locke have been leaving before sunrise and coming back after dark for the last 4 days. What are you doing out there? Is he your new boyfriend?

Boone

We're looking for Claire.

Shannon

I thought there was no trail anymore, that no one even knew where to look.

Boone

Yeah, well, at least I'm doing something. Don't you see the way they look at us around here. They don't take us seriously. We're a joke. I'm trying to contribute something. You're just. . . you're useless.

[Reaction shot of Shannon looking chagrined.

Shot of ocean sunset.

Shot of Kate sitting by a fire. She sees Sawyer with her case.]

Flashback: to bank.

Mark Hutton [bank employee]

Okay, Ms. Ryan, if you'll just give me some ID, we'll get started on your loan ap.

Kate [handing ID to Hutton]

Okay, here you go.

Hutton

So what brings you to New Mexico?

Kate

My work.

Hutton

And what line of work is that?

Kate

I'm a photographer.

Hutton

What do you photograph?

Kate

I've been commissioned for a coffee-table book. Uh, pictures of old theaters in small towns.

Hutton

Oh, there's a fantastic one down in Rio Dulce(?) you can't miss it. It's right off the main road.

Kate

Well, if I end up using it, I'll have to make sure I give you acknowledgement, Mr.. . .. Hutton.

Hutton

Mark

[Sound of door slamming.]

Robbers

Everyone down on the ground. Down on the ground, now.

[Shot of masked men shooting out the security cameras.

Hutton reaches for the alarm button.]

Robbers

Don't. Don't even think about it. Let's go. Shut up and move over there. Let's go. Move. Who's back there, I see you. All right, big boy, get your ass down there. Get out. (To Kate) Alright, girlie, get up and get over there. Let's go, move. Stay there, right there. Get that off. . . (to Hutton) Are you the manager? I said, are you the manager?

Hutton

Yes.

Jason (Robber/Kate's "boyfriend" guy)

Good. Let's open the money cage, now before people start getting killed.

Robber #2

Don't look at me, look at the floor.

[Shot of Kate.]

[Back to the beach. Shot of Kate going into Sawyer's tent. She sees him sleeping with the case between his knees. She sneaks up and tries to take it, but he grabs her and traps her with his legs around her waist.]

Sawyer

Gotcha.

Kate

Get off of me.

Sawyer

Golly, I hate to bicker about positions, sweetheart. But I think you're the one on top. Maybe you're not here for the case at all.

[Kate head-butts him and tries to grab the case, but Sawyer is stronger.]

Sawyer

Ow, woman. If you wanted to play rough, all you had to do was say so. You want to try for it again?

Kate

Give it to me.

Sawyer

No.

[Kate walks away.]

COMMERCIAL BREAK

Tivo return time 0:18

[Shot of Shannon sunning herself. Sayid limps up.]

Sayid

We're quite close to the equator. The sun might be stronger than what you're used to.

Shannon

I have a pretty good base.

Sayid

There was a matter I was going to ask you about.

[Shannon sits up with no top on, covering her front with a pink shawl.]

Shannon

What?

Sayid

I need a favor. I need your help translating some papers I took from Rousseau.

Shannon

Who's Rousseau?

Sayid

The French woman. . . the distress call we intercepted.

Shannon

Did my brother put you up to this?

Sayid

Your brother? No. The papers contain equations accompanied by notations in French. If I could understand the notations then. . .

Shannon

Sorry, can't do it.

Sayid

You're the only person on this island who speaks French.

Shannon

I barely speak French.

Sayid

Please, Shannon, can you at least try?

[Reaction shot of Shannon.

Shot of Sawyer trying to pick the lock on the case.]

Sawyer [frustrated that he can't open the case]

Son of a bitch.

Michael [hauling some luggage in a make-shift dolly (with Walt helping)]

You're wasting your time, man. If you pick the lock on a Halliburton, I'll put you on my back and fly us to LA.

Sawyer

You better find yourself a runway, daddy, cuz there ain't a lock I can't pick.

Hurley [coming up along-side]

What's he trying to do?

Michael

Pick the lock on a Halliburton.

Hurley [laughing, walking away]

Good luck.

Michael

The only way you're going to open that case is with pure force, man. Impact velocity.

Sawyer

What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Michael

You've got to hit it with something hard, like a sledgehammer. Or the axe.

[Shot of Boone making his way through dense jungle with the axe. He comes upon Locke sitting.]

Locke

You got it.

Boone [giving/throwing the axe to Locke]

Yeah. Isn't there any easier way to get there?

Locke

The easiest way isn't always the best. Did anybody see you take it?

Boone

No. I don't think so.

Locke

Well, which is it?

Boone

Sorry?

Locke

No? Or, I don't think so?

Boone

No.

Locke

Good. Let's get to work.

[Shot of Rose dragging a piece of wreckage across the beach. She passes by Charlie.]

Rose

Hello, Charlie. [He doesn't respond.] Oh, that's right, you're not talking much these days. It doesn't mean you get to be rude.

Charlie

Excuse me?

Rose

Everybody else is helping us move the camp up the beach except for you.

Charlie

Are you serious?

Rose

Do you think you're the only one on this island that's got something to be sad about? Baby, I've got sob stories for you, so why don't you grab the other end of this thing and help me. Well?

[Charlie reluctantly gets up to help.

Shot of Sawyer trying to open the case by smashing it on a rock. which doesn't open the case.]

Sawyer [up at the top of the cliff above]

Impact velocity. Physics, my ass. Alright. . . [He drops the case but it doesn't open.] Son of a bitch, unbelievable. [Kate runs up and grabs the case.] Hey, hey, don't even think about it. Hey, damn it.

[Shot of Sawyer chasing Kate through the jungle. He catches her.]

Sawyer

Hell, Freckles, I knew you wanted it. I just didn't know how bad. [Kate tries to head-butt him again.] Whoa-hoa, you're going to have to come up with a new move. [She head-butts him again.] Ow, god, okay, okay. [Sawyer grabs the case.] Okay, this is silly. I've got a proposition for you. You tell me what's inside and I'll give it to you.

Kate

Are you serious?

Sawyer

Hell, there's no way to open the damn thing. At this point all I care about is satisfying my own curiosity. [Kate lunges for the case.] Whoa, easy sweetheart, I don't really care what it is. What's burning me up is why it means so much to you. . .. Last chance. Alright.

[Sawyer walks away with the case.]

Flashback: Jason off-camera

Give me the key, now. I'm tired of asking nice. Give me the money cage key, now.

Hutton

You're just going to kill me, anyway, why would I give you. . .

Jason [hitting Hutton so he falls]

You think we're in a conversation, here. Huh?

Robber #2

Everybody be cool. You want to go home? Don't look at me, look at the floor. Be calm, stay down.

Jason (to Hutton)

Listen to me, I am not going to ask you again. I want that key.

Baseball Hat (whispering to Kate)

I can take him.

Kate

What?

Baseball Hat

The tall guy, he's not watching himself. It's now or never, I'm heading out.

[Baseball Hat grabs Six Foot Five and the gun falls and slides toward Kate.]

Baseball Hat

Pick it up, pick it up. Shoot him. What's wrong with you, shoot the gun. Turn off the safety.

[Kate picks up the gun and stands up. Points the gun. Tries firing. Jason comes over.]

Jason

Give me that gun.

Baseball Hat

Other side, turn it off.

Kate

I don't know how to use a gun.

[Baseball Hat gets knocked out by the other robbers. Jason grabs the gun from Kate.]

Robber #2 or 3

What to get shot fat boy, huh?

Jason [grabbing Kate by the neck]

Okay, little hero. . .

Kate

No, please don't.

Jason

Shut up. Let's you and me go talk, huh?

[He drags her into a room. Hutton looks on, worried. Jason slams the door, rips off his mask.]

Jason

I don't know how to use a gun? That's classic.

[Kate and Jason kiss.]

COMMERCIAL BREAK

Tivo return time 0:30

[Shot of Sayid and Shannon at a make-shift table with maps and papers laid out.]

Shannon

You never said anything about math.

Sayid

You worry about the French, I'll take care of the math.

Shannon

I can't do this.

Sayid

If you really put your mind to it, I know you can Shannon. . .. Where did you learn to speak French?

Shannon

I knew this guy.

Sayid

This guy?

Shannon

In France, in Saint Tropez. I kind of lived there for awhile.

Sayid

Well, they say that is the best way to learn a foreign language.

Shannon [going back to working on the papers]

Alright. Let me see.

[Shot of Sun with some plants in the caves. Jack comes up.]

Jack [pointing to one of her plants]

So, what is this? What is this for?

Sun

Says something in Korean. [Then puts her hands to her temples and makes like she's in pain.]

Jack

A headache? [Sun nods] Oh, cool, alright.

[Kate comes up.]

Jack? We have a problem.

Jack

We have a problem? Or, you have a problem?

Kate [looking toward Sun like she doesn't want Sun to hear]

Jack, you're the only one who knows about me. [They move off a little ways.] Before I left the city, the Marshall who was escorting me, he had this silver case. The airline wouldn't let him bring the case on the plane. It was hard enough trying to convince them to let him wear a gun on his ankle. But the case, they made him check it.

Jack

What was in the case?

Kate

Some traveling money, some of his personal stuff. And 4 nine millimeters with a few boxes of ammo.

Jack

Guns?

Kate

Guns.

[Shot of Sun overhearing.]

Jack

So, where's the case now?

Kate

Sawyer has it. He hasn't been able to open it.

Jack

Lucky for us.

Kate

He will. Sooner or later.

Jack

So, what do you need me to do?

Kate

I know where the key is. The Marshall, he kept it in his wallet. In his back pocket.

Jack

I buried him, Kate.

Kate

I know. Where?

Jack

So, what else is in the case?

Kate

What?

Jack

What else is in the case, Kate?

Kate

Nothing?

Jack

That's the truth?

Kate

Just the guns.

Jack

If you want my help, we're going to open the case together.

Kate

Okay.

Jack

Okay.

[Shot of Charlie and Rose moving stuff on the beach.]

Charlie

Why are you smiling?

Rose

Am I?

Charlie

You look happy.

Rose

Well, I guess I must be then.

Charlie

There's no reason to be happy, things are awful.

Rose

They're not that awful.

Charlie

We're stranded on an island. No one's coming for us.

Rose

You don't know that.

Charlie

Well, what I do know, is there's something in that jungle that eats people, just because we haven't heard from it in a couple of weeks doesn't mean it won't get hungry again. And I know there's a person, or people, that are trying to hurt us. . .

Rose

Charlie. Nobody blames you.

Charlie

What?

Rose

For what happened to Claire. It's not your fault. You did everything that you could do. And you came very close to dying yourself.

Charlie

Maybe I should have died.

Rose

You know what I think, Charlie? You need to ask for help.

Charlie

Who's going to help me?

[Shot of jungle floor.]

Kate [off camera, at first]

So, why didn't you put him with the others, when you burned the fuselage?

Jack

Because I needed to bury him.

[Jack and Kate grab some make-shift shovels.]

Kate

So you ready to do this?

Flashback: to bank.

Jason

Hell yeah, by now their imaginations are running wild.

Kate

Don't hold back. He won't talk if the details are off.

Jason

You and your details, Maggie. [He hits her.]

[Jason brings "Maggie" out from the back room with red marks on her face, and shoves her through the door.]

Jason

Okay, hero. . . Shut up.

Kate

Don't, please don't.

Robber #2 or 3

Everybody just relax. I said quiet.

Jason

Okay, Mr. Manager, you want to be a hard-ass? Protect a vault that doesn't even belong to you? [Kate is shaking her head no at the manager.] Okay? There's going to be consequences.

Kate

He's going to kill me anyway.

Jason

Something?? Shut up. You've got 3 seconds to give me that damn key. 1, 2, [cocks his gun], 3.

Hutton

Alright, I'll give it to you.

Jason

Okay, good. Let's go, right around here. Let's go.

[Shot of Kate and Jack digging up the grave of the Marshall. Coughing and gagging.]

Jack

You alright?

Kate

Compared to what?

Jack

You want me to. . .

Kate

No, I'll do it.

[Kate gets the wallet from the Marshall's back pocket, much gagging going on. Kate gets it and jumps out of the grave.]

Jack

Did you get it?

Kate

Yeah.

[Kate opens the wallet which has maggots in it and throws it on the ground. Jack picks it up and looks through it.]

Jack

Key isn't in here.

Kate

It isn't?

Jack

No, but that was real good sleight-of-hand distracting me with the wallet. [Jack grabs Kate's closed hand.] Open it. [Kate opens her hand to reveal the key which Jack takes.]

Kate

Jack, I. . .

Jack

Don't. Don't. [Jack walks away.]

COMMERCIAL BREAK

Tivo return time 0:42

[Shannon and Sayid working on the translation.]

Shannon

A des reflets d'argent. La mer des reflets changeants. The sea of sparkles? No, wait, um, the sea of silver sparkles that change. [Sort of laughing] It's the same as the last one.

Sayid

Are you sure? [Slightly annoyed.] But the equation is completely different; it doesn't relate. What you're saying doesn't make any sense.

Shannon

Okay?

Sayid

What about this one? It should say something about latitude or longitude, something about the stars. . .

Shannon

Okay, just give me some room, okay? Um, next to the pond, blue, um, blue eternity, blue eternity? No, wait, no, blue infinity.

Sayid

Blue infinity?

Shannon

Blue infinity. There's something about this that is so familiar.

Sayid

You've been telling me what sounds very much like nonsense for the past hour and now it seems to me. . .

Shannon

Okay, a) I told you that my French sucks, and b) this isn't my nonsense, okay? Did you ever think that after 16 years on mystery frickin' island your friend might not be quite adjusted?

Sayid [picking up the papers]

This was a mistake.

Shannon

Yeah, haven't you heard? I'm completely useless.

[Shannon walks off.

Shot of Sawyer at his tent, Jack walks up.]

Jack

Sawyer.

Sawyer

Doctor? What can I do you for? [Jack points to the case.] Figured she'd get you to do her dirty work for her. So what? Are we going to wrestle for it?

Jack

No, you're going to give it to me.

Sawyer

Am I?

Jack

Yeah.

Sawyer

I'm just going to give it to you?

Jack

Yeah.

Sawyer

Why would I want to do that?

Jack

Cephalexin.

Sawyer

Yeah, go on?

Jack

That's the antibiotic I've been giving you for the knife wound in your arm. You're right in the middle of the treatment cycle now, if I keep giving you the pills you're going to be right as rain. But I'm going to stop giving you the pills. And for 2 days you're going to think you're all good, then it's going to start to itch. The day after that the fever's going to come and you're going to start seeing red lines running up and down your arm. A day or two after that you'll beg me to take the case, just to cut off your arm.

Sawyer

That's a nice story, Jack. And, even if it were true I don't think you could do it.

Jack

You're wrong.

Sawyer

Did she tell you what's inside? [Jack shakes his head.] Yeah, me neither. [He gives the case to Jack.] Hope you got yourself some jaws-of-life back in cave-town, that's what it's going to take to pop this bitch.

Jack

I'll figure something out.

Sawyer

I know you think you're doing her a favor. But however she talked you into doing this, she lied brother.

[Shot of Kate sitting on the beach with her far-away look, Jack walks up with the case.]

Kate

Jack?

Jack

We're going to do this together.

Kate

Why?

Jack

Because that's what I said we'd do.

[Jack walks off and Kate follows.

Flashback to robbery.]

Jason

What the hell you waiting for? Open the damn thing. [Hutton opens the door.] Well, now we're talking. Don't move.

Kate

Please, don't.

Jason

Shut up.

Hutton

I let you in, now please, let the girl go.

Jason

Let the girl go? Man, you have no idea, do you? The Girl is the one who set you up. The Girl is the one who picked this bank, picked this vault. This whole thing is The Girl's idea. [He takes his mask off.]

Kate

What are you doing?

Jason [pointing gun at Hutton]

Easy, Maggie. Just cleaning up after myself.

[Kate grabs a gun from Robber #2 and points it at Jason.]

Kate

You shoot, I shoot.

Jason

Please, what's. . .

Kate

I said, no one gets hurt.

Jason

I know you're cold, baby. But you're not that cold.

[He cocks his gun. Kate shoots him in the leg. Then shoots Robber #2 & #3.

Jason

You shot me, stupid bit. . .

Kate

Shut up, Jason.

Robber #2 or 3

I told you not to trust her.

Kate [to Hutton]

I need the key to safety deposit box 815, now.

Hutton

Who are you?

Kate

Key to the box, now.

Hutton

You need 2 keys. The bank's, and. . . [Kate holds up a key]. If you had the customer key, why would you need. . .

Kate

I'm not on the signatory card.

Jason

You put me up to this to get into a safe deposit box? I swear to god, you better kill me, Maggie. If you don't. . .

Kate

My name's not Maggie. [To Hutton] Now, go.

[Kate opens the box which reveals an envelope inside.

Shot of Jack with the case.]

Jack

Anything you want to tell me?... Alright then. . . [Jack opens the box and pulls out money, guns, ammo, and finally an envelope marked Personal Effects. Jack opens it and hands Kate a smaller envelope from the safe deposit box.]

Jack

Is this it? Is this what you wanted?

[Kate opens the envelope and pulls out a small "toy" airplane.]

Jack

What is it?

Kate

It's nothing.

Jack

What is it Kate?

Kate

You wouldn't understand.

Jack

I want the truth, just this once. What is it?

Kate

It belonged to the man I loved.

Jack

The truth.

Kate

It belonged to the man I loved.

Jack

Stop lying and tell me the truth.

Kate

I'm not. It belonged to the man I killed.

[Kate sits down and starts crying. Jack looks non-plussed, he closes up the case and walks away.]

COMMERCIAL BREAK

Tivo return time 0:54

[Shot of everyone moving up the beach. Walt with his dog. Weird sunset sky. Rose sitting by a tree, Charlie comes up.]

Charlie

You're husband was in the tail section of the plane.

Rose

Yes, he was. But he'll be back.

Charlie

You think he's still alive?

Rose

I know he is.

Charlie

How?

Rose

I just do. It's a fine line between denial and faith. It's much better on my side.

[Charlie starts crying.]

Charlie

Help me.

Rose

Baby, I'm not the one that can help you. . .. Heavenly Father, we thank you. We thank you for bringing us together tonight, and we ask that you heal. . .

[Shot of Shannon walking up to Sayid on the beach.]

Shannon

The guy from Saint Tropez, he had this kid, a real snot, who hated me. His name was Laurent. He watched this movie over and over and over again, everyday, all day, they way kids do, 900 times. It was the cartoon about fish, you know, one of the computer ones?

Sayid

Why are you telling me this?

Shannon

Because the movie was dubbed in French. And at the end there was this song. Those notations, they're song lyrics. And your French woman, she's just like Laurent, because she wrote them over and over and over again.

Sayid

What's the song?

[Shannon starts singing the song (La Mer) in French. Shot of Boone looking at them from behind a tree with a weird look on his face. Shot of Jack walking by Kate, looking at her. Shot of Kate with her little airplane.]

Song lyrics for La Mer by Charles Trenent

La mer
Qu'on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
A des reflets d'argent
La mer
Des reflets changeants
Sous la pluie
La mer
Au ciel d'. . .t. . . confond
Ses blancs moutons
Avec les anges si purs
La mer bergËre d'azur
Infinie
Voyez
PrËs des . . .tangs
Ces grands roseaux mouill. . .s
Voyez
Ces oiseaux blancs
Et ces maisons rouill. . .es
La mer
Les a berc. . .s
Le long des golfes clairs
Et d'une chanson d'amour
La mer
A berc. . . mon coeur pour la vie

English Translation:

The sea
which one sees dancing along the clear gulfs
to sparkles of silver.
The sea
Of changing sparkles
Under the rain.
The sea
Confuses the summer sky's fleece
With angels so pure.
The sea
Shepherdess of blue infinity.
Look!
Next to the ponds
Those tall wet reeds.
Look!
Those white birds
And those rusty houses
The Sea
Has cradled them
Along the clear gulfs.
And with a song of love
The Sea
Has cradled my heart for life.
