The Losties continue their incredibly long hike to the radio tower. Ben is bound and being led up the hill. Jack is still gripping the walkie-talkie when Hurley's voice comes through: "Attention Others! Come in Others! If you are listening to this, I want you to know that we got you bastards! And unless the rest of you want to get blown up, I suggest you stay away from our beach!" Jack stares at the handset and then asks, "Hurley?" Hurley is excited to tell Jack that he came back to the beach to save Juliet and Sawyer and he saved them all! Sawyer is leaning up against the van drinking a beer, but Jack can't see that through his walkie, so Hurley spells it out for him, "I saved them all! Sawyer, Juliet, Jin, Bernard, and Sayid. I saved them!" The Losties all start cheering and Jack looks really relieved and a little teary-eyed. Damn quiche eater. He tells Hurley to stay put on the beach because they are almost at the radio tower and it is safer for them there. Hurley says he will stay there until Jack "phones home." Heh. I heart Hurley! And I am so glad that freaking ridiculous van episode wasn't created for the sole purpose of torturing me. Or even if it was that they at least found a good use for it. Claire grabs the handset out of Jack's hand to ask, "What about Charlie? Did he make it back yet?" Hurley says no, but that he is sure they are paddling home right now.
The floor of the Looking Glass is covered in the blood of Mikhail and the Ladies Auxiliary. Charlie is covering the bodies when he tells Desmond that there is diving equipment over there. He tells him to take care of that while he goes to type in "Good Vibrations." He stops Desmond to ask, "Hey, Des, any flashes?" Desmond shakes his head, "No." Charlie smiles, "Good. Then I'll meet you back here then." He walks into the signal room and stares at the key pad for a minute, hums the tune to "Good Vibrations" and types it in without practicing, without testing which tone goes with which number, and without screwing up a single note. Damn! He is a good musician! Or phone dialer. The light goes off and Charlie shrugs, "So much for fate." As he turns to leave he hears a beeping sound and looks to see a light indicating that there is an incoming transmission. Instead of ignoring it and, you know, not tempting fate, Charlie decides to answer the call. Chucklehead. He pushes the button and a fuzzy picture emerges and a voice shouts across the wire, "Hello? Can you hear me?" Charlie replies excitedly, "Yes! I can hear you!" The picture becomes clearer and we see that it is Penny. She asks who he is, and Charlie explains that he is a survivor of Oceanic Flight 815 and that they're on an Island, but he can't tell her where the Island is. He asks who she is and she replies, "I'm Penelope." Charlie, displaying more brainpower than I previously thought him capable of, puts two and two together and shouts for Desmond. Penny hears and gets all excited. Charlie says that Desmond is there and he's fine and everything. Then he asks if Penny is on her boat. She asks, "What boat?" Charlie replies, "You know your boat? Eighty miles off shore? With Naomi?" Penny is confused, "Who's Naomi?"
