I’ve been on some benders in my time, but this guy he was going for an all time record. It turns out this guy has a son his son’s a doctor, too. They had some kind of big time falling out. The guy knew it was his fault even though his son was back in the States thinking the same damn thing.
Jack: [starts to recognize who Sawyer’s talking about]
Sawyer: See, kids are like dogs, you knock them around enough they’ll think they did something to deserve it. Anyway, there’s a pay phone in this bar. And this guy, Christian… tells me he wishes he had the stones to pick up the phone, call his kid, tell him he’s sorry, that he’s a better doctor than he’ll ever be he’s proud and he loves him.

Charlie: Yeah, there is that.
Hurley: I think I have a chance with her. I mean, it’s a classic desert island scenario.

23. “Henry Gale”: Course if I was one of them – these people that you seem to think are your enemies – what would I do? Well, there’d be no balloon. So I’d draw a map to a real secluded place, like a cave or some underbrush, good place for a trap. An ambush. And when your friends got there, a bunch of my people would be waiting for ’em. Then they’d use them to trade for me. [jokingly] I guess it’s a good thing I’m not one of them huh?
[Jack and Locke stare at Henry]
“Henry Gale”: You guys got any milk?

I’ve tried, brother. I’ve tried twice to save you, but the universe has a way of course correcting and — and I can’t stop it forever. I’m sorry.

  1. Divina, you definitely should catch up. Season 3 was Lost’s lowest point. Four and Five were amazing.

  2. I got to season three and that was it. Maybe I will get all the other seasons and catch up.

  3. I haven’t missed an episode. There have been ups and downs, and at times I only stayed with it because I knew there were only a couple of seasons left and I wanted the questions from the first couple of seasons answered. Lost is overall one of the best shows of the decade. So, I would suggest catching up with the DVDs. Great post BTW!

  4. We have to go back, Kate!

  5. Sawyer: This don’t look like LAX.

  6. You forgot one of my favorites…it’s from the show where Hugo’s parents throw him a surprise party and when he comes in holding that statue his mom says, “Jesus Christ is not a weapon Hugo”…that’s the best 🙂

  7. Lloyd
    Is Jacob the Archangel Michael holding the keys to hell while the devil is imprisoned in hell for a season?

  8. Locke: Two players, two sides. One is light, one is dark.

  9. Michael: Why would you learn English and not tell your husband?
    Sun: He has a bad temper.

  10. AWEsomenesst PERsOn :

    I think you guys need to rewatch the show if you missed so many of the sawyer quotes… that’s like the only quotes anybody wants to read.

  11. Sawyer : Every Man is for himself. What are you doc?
