Midsection Beach. In the darkness, perfectly manicured hands set several water bottles down, then pour some water into Claire's mouth. It's Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity, who has stolen the water, he tries to explain to an angry mob, for safekeeping since Jack just left. Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity is rescued just in time by Jack, who arrives outta the jungle in a flourish of pounding drums. Jack has been rehearsing a speech since he beat up that casket, and let's be kind and just say it ain't exactly St. Crispin's Day. "It's been six days," he says, "and we're all still waiting. Waiting for someone to come. But what if they don't? We have to stop waiting. We need to start figuring things out. A woman died this morning just going for a swim. And [Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity] tried to save her, and now you're about to crucify him? We can't do this. Every man for himself is not gonna work. It's time to start organizing. We need to figure out how we're gonna survive here. Now, I found water. Fresh water, up in the valley. I'll take a group in at first light. Now if you don't want to come, find another way to contribute. Last week, most of us were strangers. But we're all here now. And God knows how long we're gonna be here. But if we can't live together, we're gonna die alone." There's a silence, and then someone asks, "How many
monkey butlers will there be?" "One at first," replies Jack, "but he'll train others."
Later that night. Charlie fills cups with water and distributes them around the camp. "Thank you for getting me water today," Sun says to Jin, who tells her, "That's what husbands do." Mercutio brings water to a sleeping Walt, and then lets a panting Vincent get a drink. The music has turned into a gentle piano line
suspiciously reminiscent of the song "One on One" by Hall & Oates. Seriously, suspicious enough that either Hall or Oates ought to think seriously about filing a suit. Boone, God's Friggin' Gift to Humanity is over at Broody Beach, getting taunted by Sawyer for taking his place "at the top of everyone's most-hated list." Kate brings Jack a cup of water and asks him where he spent his day. "Just had to take care of a few things," he replies. Pressed, he tells Kate that his father died in Sydney. "I'm sorry," Kate says. "I'm sorry too," says Jack. Great. Now everyone looks sad and pensive.
Next week on Lost: Jin hates Mercutio! Mercutio hates Jin! That desiccated corpse hates everyone!
