Sawyer hustles over to the security station and sends Phil out on lunch, then confronts Sayid. When he asks how he's doing. Sayid's all A 12-year-old Ben Linus brought me a chicken salad sandwich and you know my issues with chicken, dude. "How do you think I am doing?" Sawyer smirks. "Sweet kid, ain't he?" Sayid doesn't understand how Sawyer can bear to live there with him. I'd say bedding down with Juliet probably helps. Sayid won't accept Sawyer's excuse that he doesn't have a choice. "Let's see how you feel after three years of living in the '70s. Lucky for you, I spent that time getting myself in a position to save your ass." He opens the cell, enters, and leaves the door ajar, then head-butts Sayid, without first explaining that he's just trying to make it look like he roughed Sayid up in order to extract a confession. Sheesh, and I thought last week's distinct lack of winking was bad. He wants Sayid to say he was trying to defect, and offer some information on the hostiles, in exchange for a chance to stay at Dharma. Sayid demurs. He'd rather be on his own, thanks. Right now, I can't say as I blame him, but what exactly does he think he's going to be able to do?
We find Hurley at his new place of employ -- the mess hall. He serves up some waffles and ham to Kate and Jack and advises them to trying the "dipping sauces" which doesn't ring true as a '70s expression, but I digress. Hurley wants to know what's up with Sayid, so Jack tells him that he tried to find out from Sawyer the night before, who only told him to leave him alone and let him do his job. Hurley says, "And you're going to?" Jack just nods and blithely continues eating his breakfast. Oh sure, he's probably waiting for Sawyer to fall spectacularly on his ass, because by not sharing information, he's clearly violating the whole live together; die alone principle, but Jack stopped preaching that sermon after Rose threatened his life. Oh dear, I still miss her and Bernard. I'm going to pretend they don't have anything to learn -- that they just ended up on Craphole so Rose's cancer could be cured, and that they're currently lounging around in some unidentified era, feeding each other mangoes and laughing about Frogurt's death.
