Juliet is pounding her lean-to together while Jack makes himself blush by asking if she is a doctor or a carpenter. Ugh. Learn to flirt, you morons! Maybe the helicopter pilot is actually expert help come to save us all from these incompetent chuckleheads with their baffling attempted flirting. Juliet laughs and says, "What, your dad didn't teach you how to swing a hammer?" Jack continues his awkward streak by over-sharing that his dad taught him how to drink. Juliet sort of "ha ha"s at this admission of way too personal information and says that at least it's something. Sawyer puts this conversation out of its misery by asking, "You two arguing over who is your favorite Other?" Heh. Sawyer tells Jack that there have been some developments on the Island since he went AWOL. Then he challenges Jack to whip it out and measure it. On the ping-pong table! The boys banter while they backhand. Jack asks where the table came from, and Sawyer says it came from the Hatch and if they don't play every 108 minutes the whole Island will explode. Hee-lar-ious! Jack whiffs a ball, and Sawyer is happy that he has finally found something he can beat him at. Jack won't let that slide and says that, since he hasn't played since he was 12, Sawyer shouldn't be too proud. Sawyer suggests that it must be weird being back. Jack says Kate said the same thing in the kitchen last night. Sawyer looks thoughtful while he puts two and two together. He asks if Kate and Jack ate together. Dude, you're getting laid when no one else on this crappy Island is, can you just shut up and enjoy it? When Jack explains that he ate with Juliet, Sawyer feels good enough about things to keep playing games. With Jack. Well, probably with Kate, too, but I can't bring myself to think about it.
