Hurley leads Rose through the jungle, saying, "It's around here, somewhere," before finally finding the hatch front door, overgrown with vines. Rose looks like she really doesn't know what to make of all this. Hurley opens the door and goes inside. She follows him down the stairs, and takes everything in. "Someone actually lived down here?" she says, and Hurley says uh-huh, and she asks what it's all for, and Hurley says, "It's kind of a long story." Yeah, but fortunately there's a film. Only Jack pops up and gets all pissed that Hurley brought Rose down there. "Who else did you tell?" he asks, and Hurley says he didn't tell anyone, but well, everyone already knows about the hatch. Hurley says it's a big job, and he needs help. Besides, Rose is cool and won't tell anyone. "Honey, I don't even know what I would say," she says. Of course, despite what Hurley says about everyone asking him, I can't say it looks like the rest of the gang is too curious.
Claire's strolling along the beach. As my wife dryly pointed out, she appears to have lost all the baby fat rather easily, not to mention quickly. I hadn't noticed, but that would be due to my mass-media-induced unrealistic expectation of feminine beauty. Well, actually I don't have that, except, thanks to this show, when it comes to plane-crash-surviving women. I have to imagine that should I ever crash-land on an island, I'm going to be awfully disappointed, unless there's a bunch of passengers en route to Babefest 2005.
Anyway, Claire notices something in the water, rolling in with the tide. She frowns, looks closer, sees it's a bottle. She scoops it up, and looks disappointed (and then concerned) when she sees it's the message-filled bottle last seen in the hands of the rafters heading out looking for rescue.
Jack leads Rose and Hurley into the pantry. Rose is amazed at all the food. Jack says it's only a matter of time before they're going to have to tell everyone what they found down there. "You know what to do?" he asks Hurley, and Hurley says, unenthusiastically, that he's to inventory all of it, and figure out how to make it last. Jack reminds him that until it's been accounted for, no one gets anything, no exceptions; that's Hurley's responsibility. The beeping starts again, in the distance, and Rose asks about it. "You don't want to know," says Hurley.
"Dharma Initiative salad dressing, ranch composite," Hurley reads from the label. "Sounds tasty." The Drifters are playing on the turntable. Hurley finds the Apollo chocolate bars that Kate snagged before, and asks if Rose has ever heard of that kind. "No, but candy is candy," she says. "That's what Bernard always says. Talk about a sweet tooth." Hurley asks her if Bernard was her husband, and she gently corrects his use of the past tense, but Hurley, confused, asks if Bernard wasn't in the tail section of the plane. Yes, says Rose, but Bernard's fine. She can feel it. And they get back to the inventory. "Everyone's going to hate me, Rose," he says. Rose disagrees, saying that Hurley's just about the only one on the island that everyone loves. "That'll change," says Hurley, sadly. Kate strolls in, asking if they found any shampoo. They did, and, despite Hurley's protests, Kate grabs some, brightly says thank-you, and strolls off. "It's just one bottle," says Rose. "This is where it starts," says Hurley.
