Locke's in the computer room doing his taxes? Paying bills? Scribbling on pieces of paper likely he's still sketching the black-light map. Jack comes in, and somewhat sheepishly says Locke was right. Locke looks up. "Right about what?" About Henry, says Jack. "What you and Sayid did to him when you first found him, you were you were right. I don't like how you did it, but I shouldn't have gotten in your way." Locke goes back to his work and says that Jack did what he thought was right at the time he thought it. "I just hope that next time you decide to do something, you include me. And something tells me, that's gonna be soon." Jack's all, you heard Michael! We can take them! Locke reminds Jack that they weren't warned by Beardo not to cross the line. "These people are liars, John! Why the hell should we take their word on anything?" Locke says he couldn't agree more. So now what? Well, I'd like to see a montage, set to a song by Foreigner or Journey or REO Speedwagon, maybe Survivor, with Jack and Locke working out, and high-fiving. You know? Jack's rehabbing Locke's legs with him. They could set up those parallel-bar things and have Locke struggle to make his way across, Jack yelling at him, and have him get a little bit farther each time they show him doing that, and finally he's able to make it across on his own?
But no musical montage, at least this episode. But now that they're the dynamic duo again, Jack and Locke stomp out all purposefully into the kitchen, where the womenfolk want to know what's going on. Locke says they're going to get the guns back from Sawyer, and Jack tells Kate they need her help to convince him. Kate wants to know who's going to look after Michael, even though Michael is totally fine, and Ana-Lucia volunteers. "Give Sawyer my best," she says, and then glares a hole in the armoury door, so good job of appearing not to have an ulterior motive or anything.
Libby and Hurley are walking through the jungle, with Hurley saying they're "almost there." Libby asks Hurley if he's ever watched The Flintstones. "Sure, I used to watch it all the time when I was in the hospital," he says, and then catches himself, adding, "when I broke my hip." Doesn't he know that it's clear to her by now that Hurley's got a couple of toys in the attic? Guess not. Anyway, she's asking because Fred Flintstone would always go running past the same thing over and over again, because of the old animation trick of reusing the same background, and she's reminded of this because this is the third time they've passed this particular tree. "That's a different tree," says Hurley lamely. She sighs and says it's okay if he's lost, which he denies he is, saying they're about to walk onto "the most excellent, secret beach on the island." And sure enough, as he yells, "Surprise!" they come through the trees onto the beach.
