Kate comes over and counts down to pulling the dart out of Sawyer's foot, except that she totally pulls it out on the count of one! Not fair! Sawyer glares at her and she says, "You know all you have to do is say sorry. Clean slate, start over." Sawyer giggles and says, "Clean slate, huh, like on Little House?" Kate snorts, "You call it Little House?" Sawyer explains that he had mono when he was a kid and the only channel they got in their trailer showed Little House. Kate snorts again, and Sawyer refuses to apologize because he has nothing to apologize for. Which is very possibly true. What is he apologizing for? Letting Carl go? Or is it that every gentleman owes a lady an apology after ravishing her? Whatever. Kate looks wounded and says, "So this is how it's going to be? Welcome home, Sawyer." He sighs and says, "Welcome home, Kate." They walk in silence the rest of the way to the beach, where they reconnect with their Lostaway buddies Of course they share some meaningful eye contact. Because, you know, they did it.
Hurley walks into his luxuriously appointed home. He is covered in... what is that? Meteor ash? Asteroid dust? Whatever it is, he could undoubtedly scrape it off his body and sell it on eBay. His mother walks over and asks what happened. He explains that Tricia Tanaka is dead, that Mr. Cluck's got destroyed by an asteroid, and that it's all his fault due to the cursed lottery numbers. His mom slaps him. It was an accident! It is not your fault! He prattles on about how the numbers are cursed and that he has to go to Australia because that's where the numbers are from. His mother claims she has a surefire method to prove that he is not cursed. She leads him into the living room, where his long-lost Cheech is already making cracks about Hurley's weight. Apparently his mother thinks that the return of the money-grubbing deadbeat dad who ran off 17 years ago will prove to Hurley that he is a lucky lucky guy. I don't get the logic, but I am admittedly not a middle-aged Latina housewife. For the record, Hurley also looks unconvinced.
