Back at the caves, Jin has finally arrived, like, how far away from the beach are the caves anyway? He asks Hurley where Jack is, and Hurley points to the O.R. tent. Jin bursts in, sees Sun, and he's momentarily thrown. The tastefully named Daniel Dae Kim conveys all his hurt and anguish and anger all mixed up with just a look; he's amazing. And I've recently been watching 24 Season 2 again, and although I saw him on that show before and Miss Match recently, he's so good that I was actually surprised on 24 when he was speaking English. He's also a little rattled by Bloody Boone, but he finally collects himself and starts babbling. Even Charlie can recognize when Jin says "Claire," and starts freaking out. Sun translates that Kate's with Claire, who's going into labour. The contractions are about two minutes apart, she's not nauseous or anything, but she can't move. So Charlie offers to saddle up and ride to her rescue with Jin, and he's asking how he deals with all the dilation and all that, and Jack firmly gives him instructions to give to Kate, who he says is going to have to deliver the baby. And I have to agree that it's best not to hand that responsibility to the hyperventilating ex-junkie who has a thing for Claire, or to the guy who speaks no English. Jack's telling him about the pushing and the crowning and the whatnot, and Charlie's all, "Yeah, but you'll be there by then, right?" and Jack says he's got to stay with Boone. "You tell Kate: she's got to deliver this baby!" he says, which is a cheesy act break line if I ever heard one. Commercials.
Is Grey's Anatomy any good? I can't say it looks too appealing to me. They're trying to make a point about people who don't think women can be doctors, by having a pretty woman strip down to her underwear and yelling about her breasts? Talk about mixed messages. That's the Boston Public approach, isn't it? "This school's cheerleading squad's routine is much too sexy for high school girls, as you'll see during an extended sequence of sexy girls in skimpy clothes dancing suggestively!"
Apparently, Claire's contractions have stopped. While she's excited about that, Kate cautions her that she thinks that sometimes happens. Claire basically puts her hands over her ears and goes "la la la la la la la la can't hear you." Then her water breaks (and Kate's the one who realizes it) and Claire starts to freak about how she can't have the baby now. Kate tells her that Jack's coming.
