Charlie is busking on a street corner playing an Oasis cover when a sudden downpour sends him packing up his guitar and scurrying down a side street. As he hurries down the street he hears a woman's cries for help. He spies a woman being mugged in an alley and he runs in to break it up. He smashes the mugger in the face with his guitar and sends the guy running. As he leans against the wall, panting and explaining that he hadn't been in a fight since he was eight years old the oddly accented woman calls him a hero. Charlie scoffs at that and says he just did what anyone would do. The woman says that three other people walked by the alley, saw her, and did nothing. He's a hero. Charlie adds: "Woman Outside Covent Garden Called me a Hero" to his list. He is sitting on the beach leaning against the boat while Desmond prepares for their trip. He is fussing with something and Charlie asks what it is. Desmond explains that he is making Charlie a weight belt. It should help him descend faster than swimming. He figured since every second counts it can't hurt. Even though the so-called weight belt appears to have only three pounds of sand in it, I suppose it can't hurt. Charlie goes over the plan: He will dive down, release the weight belt, enter the docking station, find the switch, flip it, and save the day. Desmond asks how long he can really hold his breath? Charlie looks at him oddly and asks, "Does it matter?" I can't think of anything glib to say. Harrumph.
Bernard is blowing up cans to impress the boys. After he shoots his third can in a row, he asks Sayid if he should shoot another. Sayid thinks he made his point. Rose warns Bernard that this is not pheasant hunting in Montgomery County. Bernard claims that he knows what he is doing, but Rose strikes him down, "No you don't, pheasants don't shoot back!" Bernard calmly states that he just has to shoot a tent and then he will be right behind her. She announces that she's staying too. Jack interrupts their moment to say, "No you're not, Rose." Dude totally thinks he's the boss of her! He says that everyone is gathering at the south end to hike up to the radio tower and no one is staying behind but the shooters. Rose looks the uppity upstart over, gives him the stank-eye, and says, "Says who? If you can guarantee that nothing will happen to my husband then I will go with you." Jack rebuts, "The only thing I can guarantee is that if we don't kill everyone who lands on the beach in an hour, it won't matter where Bernard is." Rose snorts, "I like you better since you've gotten back, Jack -- you're almost an optimist." Rose takes Bernard by the hand and says, "If you're going to be hiding in the bushes, let's put you in something dark." I think that's a euphemism, but the thought of what that is a euphemism for totally gives me the willies. As Rose and Bernard leave, Jack tells Sayid that they had better head off. Rousseau said it was about a day's walk up there and they should start. Sayid tells Jack that he is not going. Jack should go. Jack argues that it was his plan, which isn't exactly true, but Sayid being Sayid is gracious enough to offer to execute for him. Jack yells that he owes them! Sayid calmly asks, "What are you more concerned with? Killing the Others or getting our people off this Island? This afternoon you said you were our leader. It is time for you to act like one. Lead them to the radio tower, Jack, and then take us all home." Jack seems to accept his fate as Sayid walks off. Oh Sayid! You could talk a nun out of her habit.
