Sayid walks down the snowy street and dials his cell phone. He tells the man who answers that he's made contact, and then throws the phone in a trash can. There are big piles of slush in the street. I guess the snow plow hasn't been invented in Germany yet. Sayid crumbles some snow in his hand and walks away.
Back on the island, Sayid shows Jack and Juliet the picture that Naomi had of Desmond and Penny. He thinks that Desmond might know something about the Boaties. Jack, looking in Kate's general direction, asks how long it would take to get to the beach and bring Desmond back. Before Kate can answer, Juliet says it would be a couple of hours, and Jack asks her to go get him. Sayid and Jack walk away, and Jack asks him how they are going to get Charlotte back. Sayid tells Jack that he and his Locke-shooting self are going to have to stay behind because he wants to get Charlotte back with a minimum of violence. Does Sayid think he's on a different show? Miles aggressively interrupts and asks Sayid, "You think you're going after Charlotte without me? Sayid: "Of course not."
Locke's crew walks through the jungle. I kind of love the fact that in the time Jack's team was able to find three different Boaties at locations scattered around the island, Locke and his crew still haven't made it to the cabin. Sawyer prods Ben (calling him "Gizmo") and asks for the name of his spy on the boat. Locke points out that Ben's not going to give up that info, since it's the only bargaining chip he has keeping him alive. You know, if the island is going to heal Ben, it had better start pretty soon -- he's looking mighty beat up after all the, um, beatings. Sawyer proposes sending Ben's big toe off to market, and then moving on to roast beef if he still won't talk. What about the piggy who stayed home? He just gets a pass? Does Sawyer have a soft spot for piggies with social anxiety disorder? Locke doesn't want to shoot off Ben's toes, because they'd just end up having to carry him. And then Locke looks around with some concern. He finds a line of grey dust on the trail ahead of him, and when Claire asks how much further it is to the cabin, he points out that the cabin should be right where they're standing. Again, Hurley knows from his recent experience that the cabin is currently somewhere else on the island, but Locke just gets panicked when Hurley gives a subtle hint that he might have been mistaken about the cabin's location. Sawyer asks why they're looking for the cabin, and Ben tells him, "John's looking for someone to tell him what to do next." I must point out that the Lostaway standing behind Ben appears to have turned a pant leg into a hat. Either that, or there was a 16th-century Flemish peasant on the plane. Locke realizes that everyone is looking at him like the crazypants he is, and he regains his composure and tells them that the cabin doesn't matter and that they should keep moving on to the Barracks. Rousseau wisely notes that Charlotte's pals must have learned from Jack that they are going to the Barracks. Sawyer jumps on the "let's all criticize Locke" bandwagon, and then Hurley suggests letting Charlotte go so her posse won't come after them. Locke and Charlotte tell him that Charlotte is their hostage, and Hurley balks at the idea of being a kidnapper. Locke essentially tells him to shut up: "Right now, Hugo, I'm making the decisions. Is that going to be a problem for you?"
