Only, as killjoy Libby points out, this isn't exactly a "secret beach." In fact, she says, this is so unsecret a beach that it's actually their beach. In fact, there's Jin right over there. In a funny reveal, we see Jin in the background, kneeling on the beach, cleaning fish. Very Simpsons, this moment. Hurley's crestfallen, so Libby suggests they just have the picnic right there, and asks Hurley for the blanket. Hurley's all, blanket? Libby tries again, asking him if he brought drinks. Nope, no drinks. But I bet Hurley's got some Dharma Ranch Composite in that pack of his. Nice picnic, Hurley. She tells him she'll take care of the blanket, if he'll chase down Rose and Bernard, who she saw snagging some Dharma wine from the food pallet. Hurley lights up at the thought of sharing some wine with Libby, and he jokes that if he gets drunk enough, maybe he'll remember where he knows her from. Libby's face kind of crinkles at this, like she's not sure that would be such a good thing, but Hurley takes no notice. He glances over at Jin, who by now is watching the proceedings and grinning. He nods, and gives Hurley a thumbs-up that made me snicker despite myself. Hurley giggles too.
In one of the more innovative and yet obtrusive and annoying product placements I've ever seen, Sawyer is reading a script by the fire when Jack's posse strolls up, and Jack wants him to put the "book" down, and Sawyer tells him it's a manuscript, and he's about to be the first person to find out whodunnit, and I guess you can buy this as a book with the premise being that it was written by one of the doomed passengers on the plane, and it's so aggravating that I'm not even going to mention the name of the book in order to make my stupid joke about checking out the first word on pages four, eight, and so on. Jack finally just takes the manuscript and throws it on the fire, so Sawyer spazzes and tries to save it, but can't, so he'll never know, but you can! Jack says it's time to give the guns back, but Sawyer is still going on about how Jack burned his book and now he wants help. And Locke (Sawyer says, "You too, Brutus?" to him in keeping with the cribbing of famous quotes, as well as demonstrating that Sawyer is a redneck who gots hisself some book smarts) and Kate chime in to tell Sawyer to give up the guns, and Sawyer's unimpressed that Kate's helping out, asking if Jack brought her along for the sympathy vote, whatever that's supposed to mean. "She ain't in my head, Doc," he lies.
