No matter what, remember, I will always love you.
1977; Sawyer and Juliet's Love Shack: With Juliet and Jin present, Sawyer tells Kate, Jack and Hurley that the party is over. "I know y'all just showed up. The rest of us have been here for the past three years. This is our home." He and Juliet share a look, although her look seems to be saying Guess how many Valium I just downed? Sawyer continues: "The last thing I wanna do is leave, but we ain't got no choice." There's not much time before someone realizes Phil's missing. Their two choices are to commandeer the sub, or to head back in the jungle. Am I the only one who keeps forgetting Jin now has an awesome command of the English language? It delights me when he says, "I'm not getting on that sub if there's a chance that my wife is still on this island." Hurley agrees, not because Sun's his wife, obvo, but because if they decide to hightail it off Craphole, well then there wasn't much sense coming in the first place. As Sawyer tries to get the rest of the gang's input, there's a knock at the door. He grabs his gun. It's all very tense-like, but not actually tense, because we know darn well it's only going to be Daniel and Miles at the door. This time.
When Sawyer sees Daniel, he sighs as if he'd rather it had been the Dharma Goon Squad, which is just weird. I'd like to see him exasperated less often, so that it affects me when he's exasperated for a reason. Sawyer shows his newest guests some of that good old island hospitality. "Welcome to the meeting, Twitchy. Good to see you again. Pound cake's in the kitchen. Help yourself to the punch." I don't think there's any cake. Or punch. Mean. After Daniel walks past him, he asks Miles if Dan is still crazy. Miles says, "It's on a whole new level, man." Heh. Poor Daniel. This might be the most forthright and lucid he's been since got off the freighter in 2004, and everyone thinks he's nuts. Dan apologizes to Jack for having been rude before but then jumps right to his point. He wants to know if anyone knows where he can find the hostiles. Kate's the Kate-Who-Swallowed-The-Canary, so Juliet asks Dan why he needs to know. Dan says, "Because one of them is my mother, and she is the only person on this island who can get us back to where we belong." Commericial.
