Turn On Closed-Captioning

The Sub
BEN: Juliet, I need you.
JULIET: Can it wait?
BEN: The sub is back. We have a situation, so come with me now.

The Others Are Having “Issues”
TOM: 2 days since the sky turned purple. We’ve been blind. Our comms are all down — I can’t get them back up again. And in case you forgot, Colleen’s in critical…

Ben Tells Juliet “This Is Not Why…”
BEN: Have you lost your mind? You bring him here?
JULIET: He’s a doctor. He can help.
BEN: Well, this is not why…
JULIET: Do you want her to die? [to Jack] Come on.

The Others Aren’t Used To This
JACK: The crash cart, now. Juliet, I need paddles.
JULIET: It’s broken. We’ve had… Jack, we haven’t had anything happen before. We didn’t — we have — I don’t…

Jack Doesn’t Care (Or Does He?) and Spinal Tumors
JULIET: I’m, I’m sorry they — they, uh, had to put handcuffs on you. Um, I’m a fertility doctor. I’m not used to death.
JACK: What was her name?
JULIET: Cole; it was short for Colleen. I shouldn’t have, uh — I should have come to get you sooner.
JACK: It wouldn’t have mattered. There wasn’t any more that you could have done. She was — she was dead before you put her on the table.
JULIET: Are you just saying that to make me feel better?
JACK: I don’t care about making you feel better.
JULIET: I’m going to take you back now. Um, I’m sorry for bringing you here.
JACK: Who’s x-rays are those? Outside? Those are spinal x-rays. They belong to a man about 40 years old. And whoever he is, he has a very large tumor on his L-4 vertebrae. And I just happen to be a spinal surgeon. So, you tell me, Juliet, who am I here to save?

Nowhere To Run and Of Mice and Men
SAWYER: What the–?
BEN: You ever been to Alcatraz — take the tour? Right now you’re standing on a small island roughly twice the size of Alcatraz. And that over there — that’s your island — the one you’ve come to know and love. I just wanted you to know there’s nowhere to run.
SAWYER: You did all this just to — just to keep me in a damn cage?
BEN: We did all this because the only way to gain a con man’s respect is to con him. And you’re pretty good, Sawyer. We’re a lot better. Funny thing is, us telling you about the pacemaker wasn’t what kept you in line. It was when I threatened her. You work so hard to make her think you don’t care — that you don’t need her, but, “A guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody. It don’t make no difference who the guy is, long as he’s with you. I tell you, I tell you a guy gets too lonely and he gets sick.”
SAWYER: What the hell are you talking about?
BEN: It’s from Of Mice and Men. Don’t you read? Come on, let’s get you back to your cage.

So, the moral is – turn on closed captioning if you want to “hear” the really good stuff.
