Kate asks Carl, who sits up and stares at the sky, if Alcatraz is where his people live, and Carl says it's just where they work. On what, Sawyer wants to know. "Projects," is all Carl says about that. "Like the steal-a-kid-off-the-raft project? That was a humdinger," says Sawyer. Hopefully Carl won't try to pull the same "glass houses" nonsense that Tom did on Jack. Kate asks if they live on this island, and Carl says, "Yes, ma'am." Kate and Sawyer exchange glances, and she presses further, asking what they did with the people they took, the kids, and Carl says, "We give them a better life." "Better than what?" asks Kate. "Better than yours," says Carl, looking creepily straight at her. Kate and Sawyer look at each other again, and neither of them says anything like, "Yeah, but... kidnapping? Not cool."
Carl goes back to looking at the sky and says there's not going to be a moon tonight. Then Carl tells a story about him and Alex lying in the backyard and making up names for the constellations; they can't see it yet, but over there is where "Ursa Theodorus" ("the Teddy Bear") will be. Sawyer's dumbfounded that they have backyards, like Carl might as well have mentioned the Others' space program. "Well, ain't that quaint."
Over in the bear cage, Jack pushes the food pellet button a couple of times, getting the warning signal. Oh please, oh please, oh please... damn. He actually listens to the warning, and doesn't press it a third time. He paces the length of the cage, and then he notices Juliet walking towards him. She's still being escorted by armed guards, but she's not cuffed this time. Jack goes right up to the bars so their noses practically touch. This must be nice for Juliet, given that it's been a while since his mouth has seen a bottle of Scope. She explains that she was let out to examine Ben; his vitals are low and he's got a fever. She hands Jack a Polaroid of Ben's stitches, and Jack confirms her suspicion that they're infected.
She asks Jack to examine Ben; Jack says no, even though Juliet says she's asking as a personal favour to her. "You want me to help Ben again," he says, and she says yes, and Jack starts laughing, as he always seems to, and asks if she's sure about that: "Is this because he said he'd let you go home?" She says it's not that; it's that she's in trouble. She tells him she killed someone, but when Jack asks who it was, she says "it's complicated" for some reason. That's okay, because Dr. Jack is going to make things real simple: "I'm not going to help him. And I'm not going to help you." Disappointed, Juliet leaves with the guards, and the camera lingers on Jack for about five hours before we finally go to commercial.
