In the hatch, Locke's pulling a book called Owl Creek Bridge from the bookcase and rifling through it when Sawyer strolls in. And even though I was kidding when I told you that the first word on Pages 4, 8, 15 etc. of The Third Policeman formed an interesting sentence, I'm totally serious this time. Get Owl Creek Bridge and check the first word on Pages 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42. I mean it. "Hate to interrupt whatever the hell it is you're doing," says Sawyer. Locke glances at him. "What are you doing?" Locke throws the book on a table with a bunch of others. "I'm alphabetizing," he says, clearly lying. Sawyer jokes that after Sun gets attacked in the jungle is a good time to start the "damn Dewey decimal system."
"How can I help you, James?" asks Locke, ruffling Sawyer a little bit by using his real name, and Sawyer says he's here to give John a heads-up about the posse heading his way for some firepower, after what happened to "Tokyo Rose," showing once again his winning cultural sensitivity. "And once those guns are out and about something tells me they ain't never going back in." Locke wants to know why Sawyer's telling him this. "'Cause it'll piss off Jack," is the answer. Well, that's finally some plausible motivation. Sawyer suggests Locke change the combination, but Locke perplexingly says that won't work, because if Jack wants to get in, he'll get in. By ripping the door from its hinges? Instead, Locke gets an idea, which is totally his own idea: he asks Sawyer to help him move the guns. "Move them where?" asks Sawyer, but Locke doesn't answer. "Fine. You don't want to trust me? Lots of luck." He starts to leave, and Locke says he can't leave the hatch unmanned. Saywer "reluctantly" says, "Sure, you move the guns and I'll stay here and push your damn button for you." Locke asks how long before the posse arrives. "Well, that ain't my problem, hoss. It's yours," says Sawyer.
