On his way back to his seat, Sawyer passes by Dr. Arzt, who is chatting up Hurley. He wants Hurley to do the Australian accent he does on the commercials for his fast-food empire: Mr. Cluck's Chicken. Arzt is so impressed that such a magnate is flying coach with the yutzes. Arzt asks Hurley how he got to own a major corporation (note that, please -- not just a franchise). Hurley says, "I won the lottery and I like chicken, so I bought it." Sawyer scowls at this, and once Arzt is gone, he cautions Hurley not to be advertising the fact that he won the lottery, because people will try to take advantage of him. Oh, and you think that's a change. Get a load of this: Hurley thanks Sawyer for the advice, but says that won't happen. "Nothing bad ever happens to me. I'm the luckiest guy alive." Is anyone else getting a bloody nose?Island Reality; Jungle: Hurley's sitting outside the VW Bus, next to an ever-so-slowly dying Sayid. When Jin climbs out of the bus, Hurley -- whose hearing must also be affected -- yells, "WHAT JUST HAPPENED?" Jin non-answers, "I found a flashlight," so he can't hear either, or this season is going to be way weirder than expected. And hey, did the bus flash forward in time with them, because Jin was in it and Hurley was leaning against it? Does that square with our past experience with time jumps? Oh man, I can't watch every fricking old episode before every fricking new one. Anyhow Hurley shouts to Jin, asking him what just happened and how the sky changed from day to night. Softly, Jin says that they must have moved through time. Hurley asks how he knows. Jin says, "White flash, headache, can't hear -- happened to me before." Hurley, still yelling, wonders what happened to everyone else. Jin says, "I don't know. They took one of the other vans and went up to the worksite. And then...I--" Hurley shushes him, because although he can't hear well enough to realize he's yelling when he talks, he can hear Sawyer yelling from a distance. So can Jin, who takes off and leaves Hurley with Sayid's head in his lap.
