So Sawyer risks a shark attack by actually swimming over to another little raftlet. That's how hurt his feelings are. And then he yells back at Michael, "I was trying to save your damn kid!"
Michael flashes back to the custody hearing, which oddly enough seems to be happening in the same room in which Claire almost gave her baby away, and I wonder if this room is Lost's standard child-surrendering set or something. Susan's officious lawyer is saying, "Let's talk about Walt, shall we, Mr. Dawson?" and Michael says, "Sure, okay," probably confused since talking about Walt is the sole PURPOSE of this hearing. Can we go back to the shark now, please? There's a reason Discovery Channel doesn't hold "Boring Custody Battles You Already Know The Outcome Of Week," you know. So the questions are of the "when was the last time you actually saw your son" variety. He says, "About a year," and she says, "It was fourteen months, actually," which sounds an awful lot like "about a year" to me. Saul says, "Is that a question, Lizzie?" and Lizzie the Lawyer asks "why so long" and Michael explains that Susan took Walt to Amsterdam. Lizzie the Lawyer calls it "inconsistent" that Michael didn't seem to have a problem with Susan taking Walt then, but he's filing an injunction now, and despite Saul warning Michael that she's baiting him, Michael gets quite agitated.
"You said there was nothing I could do!" he says to Susan, who doesn't say anything, and Lizzie the Lawyer says, "And you didn't do anything, did you?" and Saul says, "He's not going to answer that question," and Lizzie says, "That's because there is no answer," like now she's Lizzie the Philosophical Lawyer (her last name is probably "Sartre"). So she moves on to Michael's accident, with its several surgeries and lengthy hospital stay, and extensive rehabilitation, and she asks who paid for it. Michael throws up his hands and tells Susan that he didn't ask her for anything, and once again Susan says nothing. She's been better coached by Lizzie the Lawyer, who leans over to the stenographer and asks that the record reflect that Susan paid Michael's bills. We get a close-up on the stenographer for some reason.
Michael starts pleading with Susan, who still won't say anything, and Lizzie the Lawyer tells Michael not to address Susan directly, and then starts in with the "Do you know what Walt's first words were?" and "Do you know what Walt's favourite food is?" and Michael takes a beating while you're thinking, "Any time you want to step in, Saul," which he finally does and says this is unnecessary.
