It's campfire time back on the Beach. After they roast weenies, toast marshmallows, and sing a few rounds of "Boom Chicka Boom" (with Jack leading, of course), they settle into a serious discussion. Sun doesn't understand why they should trust Juliet; she is one of Them. Jack says that she was left behind, so she isn't one of Them anymore. Hurley wants to know where the Others went. Jack says Juliet doesn't know. Sawyer has a wacky plan: "Why don't we let the resident Iraqi take a stab at her. Literally!" Sayid explains that he doesn't do that anymore, which Sawyer finds convenient. Sawyer says that he doesn't trust her, but Jack pleads for time. Sayid wants to know how much time? Jack pulls out his Very Serious Face and says, "The fact that I trust her should be enough." Everyone around the fire starts snorting and giggling and rolling their eyes. Then a round of coughing starts: *cough* douchebag *cough*, *cough* Michael *cough*, and *cough* chucklehead *cough*. Desmond asks where Locke went. Jack says that he went with Them right after he blew up the sub that was going to take him off the Island. No one can believe he was going to be let go. Sawyer wants to know who said he could leave? Jack says it was Ben. Sawyer explains for the Just-Tuned-In crowd, "Oh, the guy whose life you saved? You should have let that bug-eyed bastard die!" Kate calls him James, and that totally shuts Sawyer up for second, but then he demands to know why Jack is taking the side of one of the Others. Just as it looks as if we might get an answer, Claire totally ruins the mood by barfing up blood. Geez, Claire, couldn't you have held it in a minute? Things were just getting good!
