Sawyer and Kate are playing in a tide pool or something on the beach, so I guess she likes him again. She's, I don't know, digging mussels out? Who cares? He's just watching her, and making fun of how that's "four in the last half-hour" and he should call "the Guinness Book," so she finally asks him if he's going to help, because if not she's got "better things to do," as if. I think he should call the Guinness people, because how hilarious would it be when they get the new edition and look for Kate in there and instead find a new entry for "world's biggest asshole"?
Sawyer glances off to his right, and sees Jack doing his robo-stride over. "Oh happy day. Here comes Dr. Giggles," says Sawyer. Jack says "hey," looking at Kate, and Sawyer says, "Hey, yourself," even though Jack wasn't talking to him. In fact, Jack barely glances at Sawyer at all, and tells Kate that he's heading out to the jungle to find "our friend with the beard" and see about making a trade. Sawyer stands up, and smugly surmises that Jack's inviting him along because he needs a gun. Jack allows himself to enjoy, just slightly, telling Sawyer that he's inviting Kate, and he's already got a gun. "How in the hell'd you get a gun?" Jack asks Sawyer if it matters. Apparently not to Jack; did he even ask where Ana-Lucia got hers? Well, I guess he might know she disarmed Sayid. Did he ask Sayid where he got it? And did Sayid tell him he got it from Charlie? And did Jack ask Charlie where he got it? And did Charlie's part in Sawyer's scheme come to light? Never mind.
Anyway, Kate's quite happy that Jack's finally asking her along on one his expeditions that usually result in people getting kidnapped or killed, so she says she'll get her things. And the two of them walk off together, with Sawyer looking much chagrined. Score one for Jack.
Bernard's rallying the Lostaways, reminding them that they've been on the island for two months. "And already we have a water trough, and we've got a food pantry, and people are taking showers in your hatch." They are? When are they doing that? He asks if they've forgotten that they crashed on the island. "It's like none of you want to go home again." In circles around him are numerous Lostaways, with the main cast -- Charlie, Hurley, Sun, Jin, Libby, and Claire (holding Turniphead) -- literally in the inner circle. All the extras in the outer ring are making the most of their chances, though, and are nodding enthusiastically as Bernard speaks, because it's not like they're going to get any lines. Claire gets all indignant at the idea that they don't want to go home, but it's not like they can offer up any evidence to the contrary, apart from Hurley's feeble "We built a raft and it got blown up."
