On the other side of the island, Locke has finished telling the story of crazy ol' Desmond and the pushing of the button every 108 minutes, a story that Charlie seems to have a hard time believing. "Didn't he sleep?" Locke says they didn't get a chance to ask him about that. "And after all that time he just up and left?" asks Charlie. Well, wouldn't you? Locke says he tried to track him, but Desmond didn't leave much of a trail. The way I remember it, Desmond was like a bull elephant charging through the jungle, but whatever, Locke. Charlie offers up the opinion that it all sounds a bit nutty. "It is what it is, Charlie," says Locke. Charlie wonders what happens if the button doesn't get pushed, but Locke says, "We're not going to find out." His job it turns out is working out a system to make sure the button gets pushed. He figures it'll be two-person shifts of about six hours apiece. That was Locke's job? Hurley totally got hosed. Charlie appears to find the business rather amusing. "Oh, and there's a record player," is Locke's final comment, and he gets up to go. Charlie asks him what Hurley's been doing there. "He's in charge of the food," says Locke. "Food?" asks Charlie. Locke told him about the presence of a record player before he mentioned the food?
