We flash back to Sayid translating the interrogation of his commanding officer, so we get some of that classic mis-translation humour, the kind where Tariq says, "Tell him his mother is a goat," and Sayid translates it as, "He says he does not know." Kate's dad isn't buying it, and tells Sayid to tell Tariq that if he gives them the location of the helicopter pilot, Tariq can go free. Sayid relays this, but Tariq just says, "You are a disgrace." Sayid seems kind of shocked that his commanding officer is displeased with him. Tariq orders Sayid to take the sergeant's gun and kill him, and he can take down a few soldiers before he himself is killed. The sergeant wants to know what Tariq is saying, and Sayid says, "He says he does not know," which, given that Tariq was yammering away for about ten minutes, doesn't take a cunning linguist to know that Sayid's not being straight up. The sergeant says that if Sayid won't help him, someone else will take over. "And that someone won't play nice at all," he says. Can I just ask why, then, they're wasting time with Sayid in the first place? Sayid apologizes, and repeats that Tariq does now know, and the sergeant gets up and stomps off, saying Sayid had his chance.
We're on Craphole Beach, and we're going to start one of the more pointless (not to mention recycled) B-plots we've had in a while. It's looks like it's the morning, and Sawyer's tossing and turning trying to get some sleep in his tent, but he can't because of a tree frog's insistent ribbiting in the background. He gets up, and angrily stomps out of his tent, and he asks Jin, like the one guy around who doesn't even actually speak English, if he hears the noise. Jin doesn't say anything, not even anything in Korean, and walks away. "What, we ain't friends anymore?" says Sawyer, genuinely surprised that maybe Jin isn't impressed that Sawyer prevented him from going after whoever tried to kidnap his wife. You'd think Sawyer might want to stay away from Jin anyway, due to the possibility of Jin finding out that Sawyer orchestrated the whole thing. NOT THAT THIS IS EVEN MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE, WHICH IS THE ONE RIGHT AFTER WHERE THIS ALL WENT DOWN.
So Sawyer goes stomping through the jungle himself. He is looking for a particular tree frog in the vast jungle of Craphole Island. Good luck with that. He comes across Hurley, who he calls "Rerun." Makes sense to me. Because when you think of reruns, you think of Lost. Hurley is dipping into some Dharma ranch dressing, which Sawyer sees despite Hurley's attempts to hide it. Sawyer notes that ranch dressing needs to be refrigerated once it's been opened. Hurley says that on the back of the jar it says that it'll keep at room temperature for up to seven years. Not that it's any danger of lasting that long. Sawyer uncovers more of Hurley's secret stash (including some peanut butter) and, presumably ironically, acts shocked that Hurley stole food from the group. Hurley doesn't want Sawyer to tell, as though anyone would be really upset if Sawyer complained about someone else's thievery.
