Desmond pries Patch from the headlock to pin him against a tree and point the flare gun at him. He demands to know who he is, but Patch is shy and won't say. Charlie says he's the guy who shot Sayid. Hurley says he thought that Locke killed that guy by shoving him through the perimeter fence. Whoever he is they agree he is definitely an Other. Desmond shoves the gun into Patch's chest and tells him to talk. Patch scoffs because it's just a flare gun, but Desmond points out that a flare gun might hurt too. Patch points out that he was dead not too long ago. I point out that I might be kind of pissed if I was brought back from the dead and still had only one eye, lousy teeth, and the same ugly ass dirty khaki jumpsuit. Jesus at least got nice white robes. The injured pilot interrupts their dÃ©tente by mumbling some more. Patch looks like he understands, and Desmond asks what she's saying. She's saying that she is dying, in Italian. Is knowing how to say, "I am dying" in a multitude of languages something you can put on your resume? Patch examines the pilot and explains that the branch punctured her lung, which is now filling up with blood. If the lung isn't drained soon, she will die. Oh, the pilot is dying? You don't say. Except when you do. In four languages. Patch offers up his services as a field medic, but only if they agree to "let me walk away as if I never came upon you." Those Others sure talk funny. Desmond agrees to the trade.
Sun sits on the beach, staring at the water and looking bereft. She turns to watch Claire with Aaron and looks even more glum. Back in the past, the newlywed and newly blackmailed Sun has tracked down Jin's father. When she approaches him on the dock, she is surprised to find that he knows all about her and seems genuinely excited to meet her. He takes her to his house for tea and asks about the wedding. She says it was the happiest day of her life, and he opines that it was for his son, too. She asks him why he wasn't at the wedding. He asks what Jin told her, and she says he told her his parents were dead. His father looks chagrined but says it was to avoid the shame. His dad then confirms that Jin's mother was a prostitute. That she was with many men and left the baby with him. He doesn't even know if he is the father but he raised Jin anyway. He smiles, wipes off his hands, and touches Sun's face. He tells her that she's beautiful and he is glad he met her. Then he asks her to never tell Jin that she met him or that his mother is still alive. He should not have to suffer the shame. Jin's dad is a really good, understated actor. Damn it, I hate it when there is nothing to make fun of in a scene. Oh right, Jin's momma's such a ho, the only thing she won't do is the dishes!
