Hurley's followed the cable deep into the jungle, all the way to a dead boar hanging from a trap, complete with buzzing and feasting flies. Hurley finally starts to look like maybe he's thinking this wasn't the best idea he's ever had. But he continues on, at least until he puts his foot down and hears a slightly metallic clink. He looks down, and sees he's stepped on some sort of metal plate. Remarkably, though, he's about to carry on when Sayid yells, "Stop!" and the three stooges come out from the bushes on the side. Hurley's surprised to see them. I'm more surprised that they were following him, and probably should have come up from behind him on the cable, but instead they've come at from the side. Also, despite being in the bushes, Sayid managed to see and/or hear that Hurley's stepped on a pressure trigger, and if he steps off it -- Sayid points up -- he'll release that. Hurley looks up and sees some kind of spiky contraption. "Oh, man," says Hurley. So the stooges scramble around, with Charlie receiving orders to find something to replace Hurley's weight. "How'm I supposed to do that?" complains Charlie, and Hurley snaps at him. And...well, come on, Hurley. I dislike Charlie, but there are cracks about your weight and there are relevant observations. Maybe you'd prefer being impaled to getting your feelings hurt? But Hurley insists that he can get out of the way: "I'm spry, dude." And despite the stooges' protests, he ducks out of the way, and the spikes swing harmlessly by. Charlie asks what the bloody hell's wrong with him, and as far as I'm concerned, Charlie's the last one who gets to ask that question (see, Hurley? I'm back on your side again). Hurley says "nothing," and gets to his feet. Jack wants to know what he's doing out there. Hurley claims he just wants a battery, and Jack's all, seriously, dude, what's going on? "Nada," says Hurley, and asks if they're coming. They are. It's just like The Goonies!
Hurley flashes back, to a time when he was berating a nurse at some kind of hospital, because he's looking for a Lenny, and the nurse says she can't find this guy if Hurley doesn't know his last name. Hurley asks her how many Leonards can possibly be at this place, and he just wants to talk to him for five minutes. Meanwhile, in the background is this idiot maintenance worker who climbs up a ladder to change a light bulb, despite the ladder shaking like a groom waiting for the woman he loves to start walking down the aisle. "He knows me!" says Hurley to the nurse, who starts telling him about private records, but Hurley interrupts her to yell at the worker to get off the ladder and leave the bulb for another time, which the terrified worker does. And maybe I'm nuts, but this guy looks like the actor who played the head of that military school that Tony wanted to send A.J. to. But you'd think that guy would at least get a line.
