On a rather large TV, some guy plays a videogame that involves lots of shooting other people. We're at Assam's place, which he shares with a couple of other guys. The guy playing the videogame complains that he's run out of ammo -- his friend suggests that he use the crowbar, but the game player points out, "That only works on the zombies." I hope that Sayid has filed that information away for the inevitable moment when Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Corpses becomes Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Zombies. One of Assam's pals suspiciously asks what Sayid does, and he explains that he is at liberty for the moment. Assam starts talking about the hot Australian chicks to be seen at the beach, while Sayid notices the smoke detector on the wall. Despite the fact that Assam's two buddies are smoking up a storm, not a sound is coming from the detector. Sayid keeps talking about beaches, but he walks towards the detector, grabs the cigarette out of the mouth of one of Assam's roomies, waves the cigarette around under the detector, opens the detector, and removes the bug that is contained therein. Once he's dropped the bug into a glass of tea, he asks them to tell him what they are really doing in Sydney. Assam's pal asks Sayid who he is, and he and Assam explain that Sayid was a communications officer in the Republican Guard. Assam's pal says, "Perhaps it's not happenstance that you and Assam met at the mosque. [Tense pause.] Perhaps it is fate."
Back on Craphole island, Claire tells a worried Charlie and Sun that she's fine, despite the fact that she hasn't slept once since giving birth a few hours ago. She doesn't seem to want to let the baby go. Um, is she planning on staying awake until he's eighteen? Charlie offers to "take care of Turniphead for a while." Claire is not amused, but Charlie explains that he's just calling the baby that because his enormous six-month-old head looks like a turnip. Claire's scared that someone will take the baby away, and Charlie reassures her that he would never let that happen. Again. Claire eventually relents and gives the baby to Charlie.
