More slot-machine memories, and then we're back in the empty nursery, present-day Claire holding the bootie. "It's here, the medicine's here," says Claire. They go down the hall to the operating room, with its busted light and overturned medicine cabinet. Claire tries to lift the cabinet, but it's too heavy. She asks Rousseau to help, but Rousseau's all zonked out in one of her zones again, or so she would have us believe. If I were Rousseau, I could see myself milking the whole "she's crazy" thing as often as possible, like if someone wanted me to do some heavy lifting or listen to them tell me about the weird dream they had last night. So Claire starts yelling for Kate to come help, and Kate comes running. Well, trotting, anyway. Claire explains that the vaccine is in there, so the two of them tilt it back up. Claire opens it, and it's empty. Considering the whole damn place is empty, I can't say I'm surprised so much as "not surprised." And great, now Claire's yelling again about the vaccine being in there, and then she starts yelling at Danielle, asking where it is. She yells, "Tell me!" about eight million times. We get a few more slot-machine memories, all having to do with Claire struggling with Rousseau in the jungle, and present-day Claire looks down at Rousseau's forearm, still marked from Claire scratching her. They haven't healed yet? Maybe Sawyer's got some Vitamin E cream.
Now we get a real flashback. Claire's lying on the jungle floor, asleep. It's night, or dusk, anyway. She regains consciousness, and starts calling for Ethan. "I'm sure! I want you to take the baby!" Well, at least she's keeping focused. And then Danielle shows up, doing that skittish-deer thing stepping out of the jungle towards Claire. "Who are you?" asks Claire, but Rousseau doesn't answer, and then we hear Ethan in the distance yelling Claire's name. "Yeah, I'm here!" she yells. "I can hear you, where are you?" yells Ethan. Rousseau starts trying to shush Claire, who insists that she has to give her baby to them, so he'll be safe. Danielle tries putting her hand over Claire's mouth and dragging her away, but Claire manages to break free, at least until she gets a face full of rifle butt from Rousseau, presumably knocking her out.
Back in Dharma Feelgood, Claire quietly realizes that Rousseau wasn't trying to take her back to the hatch; she was trying to save her. Instead of "duh," Rousseau says, "I carried you on my back to your camp. I left you where they would find you." Wow, this is kind of like that old story where the guy asks Jesus why, judging from the single set of footprints, Jesus left him during his most troubled times, and Jesus is all, "Bitch, please; those are the times I carried you!" So Claire apologizes. Rousseau's expression doesn't change; she does, however, turn to leave. Claire asks where she's going. Rousseau turns back: "You're not the only one who didn't find what they were looking for." Not that you'd know it listening to her screech. Damn. And maybe it's churlish of me to point out that after Rousseau supposedly saved Claire, she then actually kidnapped Aaron.
