Ben offers to put it in terms that John can understand. He tells him to picture a box, because Locke knows all about boxes. What if I told you that somewhere on this Island was a Very Large Box and whatever you imagined, whatever you wanted to be in that Very Large Box, when you opened that Very Large Box, there it would be. What would you say to that? Locke smirks and says, "I hope that box is large enough to imagine up a new submarine." Oh writers! You're making my sides split! Ben is not amused. He wants to know why Locke is so angry? Um, Ben, maybe Locke is so angry because he was in a plane crash on an island populated by a random group of assholes who decided to kidnap, torture, and terrorize the survivors instead of helping? Maybe that's why he's so angry, Ben? Maybe? Locke tells Ben that he is angry because Ben is cheating. So, I'm wrong. Whatcha gonna do about it? Locke thinks Ben and the Others are cheating because they communicate with the outside world, they come and go as they please, they have electricity, running water, guns. Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eaters! He's a "heretic," a "Pharisee"! (Ooh someone's getting biblical!) If Ben had any idea what the Island was all about he certainly wouldn't be eating chicken! Um, John, you should really wipe the drumstick residue off your face before you start pointing greasy chicken fingers at people. Ben looks annoyed and points out that Locke has only been on the Island for 80 days (really? 80 days?) while Ben has been there his whole life. What makes him think he knows this Island better than him? Locke smiles and says, "Because you are in a wheelchair. And I'm not." Oh, he's got you there, Benny Boy.
