Clancy looks up at the ceiling and strolls over towards a dark spot on the concrete. "See that brown stain there? That's Radzinski." Radzinski ate a shotgun one night when Clancy was asleep. So I guess that shuts you up, Desmond. "The bitch of it was," continues Clancy, "I only had 108 minutes to bury the poor bastard." Hey, Clancy, ever hear of making more than one trip?
Desmond mulls this over, and then sensitively says, "Well, if you don't want me to go crazy, next time let me go out." Clancy's gone back to painting his stupid map and asks if Desmond wants to go out there with the quarantine and the hostiles. Desmond says he hasn't been outside in two years (two years? He's not crazy already?), and implies he'll be able to handle himself because he was in the army. Clancy slags off "Her Majesty's Army" and asks why he left "that nice old lady's army" before pretending to just now remember that Desmond was kicked out because he couldn’t follow orders. Desmond angrily asks why Clancy left his army. "Because men followed my orders," he growls, painting again. Then he sarcastically pretends to be thrilled to have joined the Dharma Initiative, and mockingly says, "Namasté, thank you, and good luck!" and starts laughing. Can't wait until Candle sees that impression. Desmond tries pleading to be let outside, just once. Clancy looks at him hard. "Sorry, Des. You stay here. You push the button. That's an order." And now we all know how well Desmond follows those, huh?
Back in present-day Swan station, Charlie's still banging on the door, warning Locke that he's "about to be detonated." It's really too bad that neither Charlie nor Eko seem to have any idea WHY THEY'RE CALLED BLAST DOORS.
Getting no response from the computer room, Charlie instead tries reasoning with Eko, who's still setting the fuse for the dynamite, and asks him what if Locke's right. "What if it's just some colossal joke? You know, it's just some old computer connected to nothing? Maybe it's just a bunch of wire?" Finally too irritated to let Charlie continue living, I hope, Eko stands up, shoves Charlie against the wall and pulls Charlie's belt off. He turns and throws it down the hallway, where it's pulled to the magnetic wall and sticks like a fridge magnet. "Is that a joke?" yells Eko. "I'll see myself out," says Charlie, like his feelings are hurt. He strolls off down the hall and retrieves his belt, while Eko yells that this is Locke's last chance to end this: "Open the door and I will forgive you." Inside, Locke, not unreasonably, wants to know what he's to be forgiven for. So Eko strolls back to the fuse, which he lights with a match from a Dharma matchbook, ignoring Charlie's protests that they're in a confined area.
