Locke's in the jungle, scraping out a coconut to make some sort of paste that he's slathering on his leg wound, and Walt strolls up and asks him what he's doing, and Locke explains, and it all sounds very small-talky, and Locke just outright asks if there's something Walt wants to tell him. "I didn't do it," says Walt. "Didn't do what?" says Locke. Walt says he heard that Jack thinks someone made his dad sick, but he didn't do it. Locke contrivedly asks if Walt thought that because Locke knows Walt set fire to the first raft, that he thinks Walt's the one who poisoned his dad. Have to admit, the thought crossed my mind. Locke, squatting in front of Walt, explains that they're friends, and Locke didn't tell on Walt before and he's not going to tell on him now. Taking Walt's wrist, Locke says he knows Walt wouldn't do anything to hurt his dad. Walt seems visibly frightened by Locke's touch, but not really in a "Bad touch! Tell an adult!" kind of way. He shakes his arm free and Locke asks what the matter is. "Don't open it! Don't open it, Mr. Locke! Don't open that thing!" says Walt. "What thing?" asks Locke. "Just don't open it!" says Walt, who runs away. Locke glares after him, like, damn, how many people did Sayid tell anyway?
On the beach, Mercutio's still taking it easy, and that notoriously lazy bastard Jin is relaxing too. Sawyer tosses Mercutio a bottle of Pepto Bismol, since they can't have their "pilot out of commission." Mercutio looks at Sawyer like he can't believe the nerve, and asks him if he's feeling guilty. Sawyer's confused. "You're off the raft," says Mercutio, tossing the bottle away, and I'd just like to interject that Pepto Bismol deserves some kind of criminal charges for their mind-blowingly annoying diarrhea Macarena commercial. "We had a deal!" snarls Sawyer, and Mercutio says the deal was voided when Sawyer tried to poison him, a scurrilous charge that Sawyer denies. "You said you needed four!" says Sawyer, and Mercutio says he has four. "You've been stealing stuff off of dead bodies, keeping it for yourself, using it to buy favours...you're a liar and a criminal, and I'm not letting you near my boy!" Would it be mean-spirited of me to point out to Mercutio that all of this was true even before he got poisoned? Nice try, pal. Meanwhile, Jin's looking at Sawyer like, is this true? Either that, or he's desperately wishing he was speaking to his wife so she could translate what the crazy round eyes are yelling at each other. "I'm a criminal, huh? I poisoned you because I'm a criminal?" He moves towards Mercutio, but Jin pushes him back, so Sawyer calls him "boy," so I guess Sawyer is one Southern redneck who gets his racial epithets mixed up.
