That night, Jack walks across the quad and asks Phil where James LaFleur lives. Phil indicates the house but says, "But I wouldn't call him James. He hates it." Jack chuckles, nods and continues on his way. Juliet answers his knock at the door, and they look at each other about the same way Kate and Sawyer looked at each other out at the north point. Oh, you crazy kids and your love rectangles! Who's closer to a fivehead -- Jack or Sawyer? Well, whatever, they hug and Jack says, "I saw you earlier today when you were helping Kate, and I wanted to say something to you then, but..." You know, Kate! Oh no, wait, that's not it. Juliet finishes for him: "We're not supposed to know each other." Jack says, "Yeah." Juliet says, "Yeah." I say, "Then shouldn't you take your huggy-faced reunion indoors, away from prying eyes, you big dorks?" Jack tells her he was looking for Sawyer. "I guess I came to the wrong house." Juliet, looking like the cat who swallowed the canary, says, "No. Come in."
The canary is sitting in his chair, reading a book and says, "Good evening, Doc." Jack nods, looks around and doesn't say anything. That silence was a little too awkward for me. I would have liked some awkward words. Juliet takes ten minutes to shut the door behind her, turns, blushes and says, "Well, I'm sure you two have a lot to talk about." My husband says, "I don't think she can pull off that whole 'I'll just get out of you menfolk's way' shtick." I'm with him. What do you think? Once she's left the room, Sawyer eases up a tick and invites Jack to take a load off. He asks him if he wants a beer, but Jack laughs and says, "No, I'm fine." He doesn't sit, either, which is probably some cock-of-the-walk posturing, and a mistake. They're both strutting around here, even though they're not actually strutting. Sawyer asks Jack what he can do for him. Jack says he doesn't even know where to start, then, "How about with Sayid?" Sawyer says he had no choice. "He was running around the jungle, got caught by my people. And seein' as how he can't tell the truth about how he got here, I had to improvise."
