After we get back, Charlie and Hurley are preparing to bury Ethan. Hurley speculates that Ethan will rise from the grave and kill them all, finishing with, "Dude, I know how works. This is gonna end with you and me running through the jungle, screaming and crying. He catches me first because I'm heavy...and I get cramps." Oh, Hurley, that would be so sad, if only because we'd miss your perfect comedic delivery. Charlie's overcome just thinking about it. Or maybe he's all torn up inside and stuff because he's planting the guy he plugged. Hurley notices and asks if Charlie's all right. Unspoken answer: no.
So Hurley wanders on over to Sayid's corner of the beach, which is looking suspiciously like something out of Pier One Imports. He asks if he may ask Sayid a question. "Of course," Sayid says courteously. Hurley asks, "Did you ever get that Gulf War Syndrome?" Sayid looks like he regrets his earlier offer as he points out, "That was the other side." After an awkward pause, Hurley presses on: "What's the one where they're all, like, shell-shocked?" Sayid tells him it's PTSD, and from there, it's but a hop, skip, and a jump to the point where Hurley's telling him he thinks Charlie's got it, and it might be nice if Sayid went and talked to him. Ah, Hurley. He's like the power behind the throne, telling all the island's ostensible leaders what to do. Cardinal Richelieu, only way more mellow, you know?
Back to Sawyer's Porcine Quest. He's wandering around, feigning competence in reading trails. Kate pops out of nowhere and smarts off, "It's a footprint. Based on weight and distance in strides, I'd say you've been following Boone for about an hour." Sawyer is not thrilled to see Kate, something she blithely ignores, but instead of telling her that the boar story was an elaborate ruse to throw her off the trail of his hot love for Boone, he snots back, "I'm tickled you've taken such an interest in my affairs, I really am, so don't take it personal when I tell you to --" Tell her to what? We never find out, because stupid Kate interrupts to tell him she wants carte blanche to rummage among his inventory after she helps him find the boar. After Boone ponders for a moment how he can later use this situation to his advantage, he takes Kate up on her offer.
Cut to the two of them sitting around a fire at night. All this needs is a voice-over telling us that K-Tel presents "Songs to Kick Off A Totally Dysfunctional Relationship." Sawyer whips out a little airline bottle of booze and Kate asks him where he got it. Kate? You're on an island that has, despite astronomical odds, managed to avoid being infested by Starbucks, McDonald's and Wal-Mart. You really think that the liquor store people are going to make it out here? He got it off the plane, you simpleton. Sawyer says as much, and Kate says huffily, "Jack was looking for [the liquor cart]." Sawyer grins, "Good thing I found it instead then, huh?" Kate is charmed by his absolutely unapologetic demeanor. And then she asks for a drink. Sawyer tells her this is a BYOB campout. Then he relents, but tells her that if she wants to drink, she has to play "I Never." I'm guessing the first statement he'll make is "I never developed my social skills past age 15."
