Ben gazes out over the water, and says, "I brought you here so you'd look out at the water and feel comforted -- comforted that your friends were looking out at the same ocean." Is he talking about Sawyer and Jack? 'Cause those guys aren't doing any kind of whale watching. But Ben's got more to say: "I gave you the dress so that you'd feel like a lady. And I wanted you to eat your food with a real live fork and feel civilized. I did all those things so that you'd have something nice to hold on to. Kate stares at him as he wipes his mouth. "Because, Kate, the next two weeks are going to be very unpleasant." He gets up and walks past Kate, who I don't imagine is going to be enjoying that bacon, which is just sitting there.
Flashjack is sitting in his office, dialing numbers from a pad of paper on his desk, and offering up some bullshit story about meeting a woman named Sarah on the train and she dropped her cell phone, and blah blah blah. Christian strolls in, despite Jack asking his father to give him a minute, but his dad puts two and two together pretty quickly and wants to know why Jack's dialing all the numbers on Sarah's cell phone. Actually, I guess he didn't put quite all the pieces together, because it's pretty obvious why Jack's doing it, but Jack spells it out anyway. "One of them is him," he says, and his dad tells him to stop it. "Not until I know his name. Where he works, where he lives, when they first kissed -- I want to know what it is about him," says Jack. Maybe he's not a psycho. At this point, that could be all that Sarah's looking for. While he's been talking, Jack's been dialing another number, and Christian's cell phone rings. Hee! Well, I'm sure Jack will react calmly and rationally.
Jack stares in shock, and Christian makes an, "Oh, shit" face. "Why is Sarah calling you, dad?" asks Jack. Christian says he thinks Jack should let it go. In a surprise move, Jack refuses to let it go. "Why is she calling you?" he yells, and Christian offers the entirely plausible answer that she was afraid for Jack. "She could see that you were slipping, you were losing your grip, which is exactly what's happening here." Jack vehemently disagrees, but Christian says he knows a little something about being obsessive. So Jack drops a bomb in Christian's backyard: "No, being a drunk is not obsessive." That may be so, Jack, but at least in the morning Christian's going to be sober.
