Back on the beach, Sawyer is sitting peacefully in his first-class chair staring out at the ocean, with his glasses and book resting on his leg. Hurley walks up and kicks him. When I get really old, I am going to be a random kicker and just walk up to people and kick them in the shins if I think they are asses. Like people who are rude to bodega owners and shopkeepers. Or people who throw litter. And definitely people who read Ayn Rand. Anyway, Hurley kicks Sawyer, who is understandably cranky about this. And thus starts the ridiculous subplot du jour. Hurley tells him not to look at him, not to talk to him, and that he is not supposed to be there. Sawyer is fine with that and tells him to scram. Hurley says that there are some things Sawyer needs to know. There has been chatter. After Paolo and Nikki (who?) and everything, people are talking, and tomorrow there is going to be a vote about whether or not to banish him. Sawyer sputters, "Banish me? Banish me where?" Hurley says that there was debate about that, but the consensus was half a mile down the beach. Hurley says that the reason he is there is because there may be a chance to make amends. Sawyer says he doesn't do amends. Hurley says that Sawyer may want to think about the perks of living in camp. Sawyer can't even feed himself. He uses the latrine. He drinks the water that Steve brings everyday to the trough. Sawyer stops him by asking, "You know how for three days ten hours and fifteen minutes I ain't allowed to use nicknames?" It's only been three days since the ping-pong contest? That makes my head hurt. Sawyer continues, "Well you sir, Hugo, are rotund, annoying, and blocking my view." Hugo calls him "dude" and tells him he is making a big mistake.
