Just then, the monsignor strolls up, interrupting Eko's curious way of honouring his dead brother, and says hello to "Father" "Tunde," who introduces the dirtbag as an associate who's helping arrange Father Eko-Tunde's trip to the United States. But the monsignor is all, "See, the thing about this is, there's been this miracle " which is thank God not a reason that's ever been used to deny me time off. So whatcha got, Monsignor? Mary's face in a burrito? St. John the Baptist under a bridge overpass? The Edmonton Oilers scoring four goals in the third period to eliminate the Detroit Red Wings?
Inside the church, a woman tells Eko that her daughter drowned. He expresses condolences, but she says her daughter came back to life. Eko exchanges a glance with the skeptical monsignor, whose expression reads, "Resurrection? Does she really expect us to believe someone died and came back to life?" The woman says her daughter slipped and fell into the river, and she's not much of a swimmer. The next day, she woke up. Isn't there a middle missing from that story? The woman starts going on about how the confirmation of faith needs to be shared with everybody, and Eko interrupts her rapidly loudening speech to ask where her daughter is now. "At home, with my husband," she says. Eko asks what her husband thinks about it. "The world needs to know about this! We need to tell the Vatican!" is her answer, which is quite telling. The monsignor interrupts her to tell her that before anyone can be told, the church needs to conduct its own investigation, and "Father Tunde" will start the process, if she'll allow him. She agrees. But Eko wants to speak to the monsignor privately.
Eko tells him he can't do what the monsignor is asking. "I do not believe what this woman says. Plus, about my trip to L.A.? I got tickets to see the Beastie Boys at the Hollywood Bowl, and I was on the phone for eight hours to get them, so you know?" "Why do you think I chose you?" says the monsignor. About Eko not believing, not about the Beastie Boys thing.
Back on Craphole Island, Eko's leading Locke through the jungle, and Locke stops him, and wants to know if Eko's seeing something that he's not, because he hasn't seen any kind of sign since they left the hatch. "Where is the question mark?" asks Eko. Locke says, "What?" Eko repeats his question. "You know what? You keep chasing after your own shadow. I'm going back," says Locke, who turns to do just that, but Eko stops him. "I know you do not want to show me. But you must," he says. Locke says he doesn't have to show Eko anything. "Then I'm sorry," says Eko, who screws up his face and then awesomely head-butts Locke, who topples like a beavered tree.
