Hurley's back at the cabin. He calls out and approaches the building, instead of wisely fleeing into the jungle. And then he looks through the broken window. What does he see, you ask? A table, a lamp, an empty chair, a painting of a dog playing poker (or maybe just being a dog), and a guy sitting in a rocking chair. Now, the EEFPs swear that the guy is Jack's dad, based at least in part on his white shoes. But based on the same evidence, I'm holding out for Peewee Herman -- mostly because I'd love to see Miss Yvonne or Jambi on the island. And then a scary brown eye looks out at Hurley from the other side of the window. I scream, you scream, we all scream from sheer terror, because that was scary. Hurley is just as scared, and he runs off into the woods. After a bit he stops and looks back to see if the scary brown eye or its owner are chasing him. They aren't, but when he turns back around, he finds that the cabin is now in front of him. As the cabin door slowly creaks open, Hurley closes his eyes and tells himself that there's nothing there. And when he opens his eyes, the cabin is gone. He falls over backwards in the grass, and screams again when he opens his eyes and sees Locke standing over him. (Locke's eyes are blue, by the way, so he was not the owner of the scary brown eye. And once again, my hat is off to the EEFPs.) Commercials.
Hurley and Locke are having a little powwow in the woods. The exact words aren't so important; all you need to know is that Hurley told Locke about Charlie's dying message, and they both agreed that Jack should never have called the people on the boat. And they decide to try to convince everyone else that the boat people are not actually there to rescue them.
