[Shot of Sayid sitting on a beach, looking at his photos. He looks at the writing on the back of the photo. He looks across the strand and notices something metal sticking out of the sand. Shot of cable in the sand with a piece of the interior exposed. Sayid carefully digs it up. Pan left to the cable going into the ocean, presumably. Shot of Sayid using the cable as a guide going toward the jungle.
[Shot of bandage being ripped off of Sawyer's arm, at Sawyer's tent.]
SAWYER: Ow, easy, Jackass.
JACK: u want it easy, quit moaning. I've got to change these bandages.
SAWYER: Well, try not taking my skin off with them. How'd I score the house call, Dr. Quinn. Trying to ease your conscience?
JACK: My conscience is fine, thanks.
SAWYER: Of course, what do u have to feel guilty about? I mean, u just let that damn Arab torture me -- stood door and watched. u figure u patch me up -- buy u a ticket into heaven? Only reason you're here...
JACK: I'm here because no one else wants anything to do with you.
SAWYER: She does.
JACK: Change your own bandages.
[We see Kate on the strand looking worried. Jack approaches.]
JACK: Looking for someone, of just admiring the view?
KATE: It's been two days since Sayid took off on his own. I keep looking up, thinking I'm going to see him coming back.
JACK: He'll come back when he's found what he's looking for -- the French transmission.
KATE: He isn't looking for anything. He left because of what happened -- for what he did.
JACK: It was an accident.
KATE: Well, accidents happen when u torture people, Jack.
JACK: Sayid's a trained soldier, Kate. He can take care of himself.
[Shot of jungle floor pans up to reveal Sayid walking toward the camera. We see the jungle floor with the cable running along it. Sayid notices a tripwire and carefully steps over it. We see a rope moving through the jungle floor and Sayid's ankles are caught in a trap.]
[Shot of Sayid hanging upside down, praying. He hears something.]
SAYID: Hello? Hello?
[Shot of mes used to cut Saying down. He falls, and sees someone wearing army green cargo pants, carrying the mes coming toward him before he loses consciousness.]
[Shot of Jack doctoring a redshirt. Voices of people arguing (you, get him out of there, he's drinking our water)].
JACK: What's going on out there?
HURLEY: Uh, u know, the usual -- people yelling at each other over nothing.
SULLIVAN (a redshirt): Doc, what do u think this is, this, this, this, uh, rash. It's bad, right, like some kind of a tropical disease?
JACK: It's hives.
SULLIVAN: What's that? Is that like poison ivy?
JACK: It's a common rash, Sullivan. It's brought on door heat and stress.
JACK: Just try to relax; it'll clear up.
JACK: Try to keep your mind off it.
SULLIVAN: Okay, [to Sun who has a poultice] What is that? Is it like aloe? Isn't that for sunburn, of something?
HURLEY: Try to keep your mind off it? What else has that guy got to do but stress?
JACK: I've got enough on my plate without having to treat hypochondriacs.
HURLEY: Yeah, but that's like my point, man. We're all fried. I'm mean, have u taken a look at everybody out there? Everybody's way tense. Dude, I'm just saying, it'd be sweet if we could have, I don't know, something to do.
JACK: We're surviving here Hurley, and that's what my main concern is, keeping us alive. Things could be worse.
[Shot of an "interrogation" light. We hear a bunch of voices/languages asking "Where is Alex?" (The voice may just be one voice slowing, morphing into Rousseau's voice as Sayid is coming to. It's like the voice is becoming clearer through a fog). Sayid is tied to a metal bed frame.]
SAYID: What? Who are you?
DANIELLE: Where is Alex?
SAYID: I don't know what you're talking about.
[A figure runs across the frame and does something that electrocutes Sayid.]
DANIELLE: Where is Alex?
SAYID: Please listen...
DANIELLE: Where is Alex?
SAYID: I don't know any Alex.
[Sayid gets electrocuted again.]
[Shot of a prisoner being beaten door Sayid in Iraq.]
SAYID: Arabic Words [Subtitles: u want me to stop, Falah? Then start answering my vragen because I can do this all day. I assure u we already know the truth. But I want u to admit it.]
SAYID: [In English] And all the pain will stop. Your Shiite vrienden have already implicated u in the bombing. [shouting] u planted the device in the Baathist headquarters, didn't you? u killed two soldiers. [lowered voice] Confess it. Confess it, and perhaps it will only cost u your hands instead of your life.
[The prisoner throws up.]
[Shot of Sayid and his boss/friend, Omar, walking in military type surroundings.]
SAYID: He doesn't know anything. Your sources were wrong.
OMAR: Perhaps. But that's really not the point, is it? u handled yourself very well in there.
SAYID: Did I?
OMAR: I'll put in for your reassignment to Intelligence Division, if u wish it.
SAYID: Yes, sir, very much so.
OMAR: Good, now stop calling me sir when it's just the two of us.
SAYID: You're my superior officer, Omar -- for now.
OMAR: And I'll enjoy it while it lasts.
[Shot of a woman being brought in for interrogation. Sayid watches her.]
OMAR: That reminds me, Sayid. In addition to your increased responsibility... Communications officer... [the dialogue volume fades as the woman walks by.]
SAYID: I'm willing to make that sacrifice.
[Shot of Hurley sitting asleep on a log. A bag is dropped at his feet, waking him up.]
HURLEY: Yo. What's this?
LOCKE: They were in the jungle. They must have fallen from the plane.
HURLEY: What are u guys doing out in the jungle at night?
ETHAN: Best time to hunt.
LOCKE: Ethan here has some experience -- spotted some tracks, looked like they might be rabbit of some other rodent.
HURLEY: Rodent, yum.
ETHAN: Figured people are starting to get tired of eating mannetjesvarken, wilde zwijnen meat.
HURLEY: u got that right. Alright, well, I'll take a look at these [indicated the suitcases], and see if there's anything useful.
[Shot of Hurley digging through luggage and finding red Hawaiian shirt. We see Locke sheath his knife, and Walt wakes up.]
WALT: Mr. Locke, are u going back out to hunt?
LOCKE: For a bit.
WALT: Can I go with you? I mean, I just want to learn what u do.
MICHAEL: [waking up] Walt!
WALT: I was just. I was talking to Mr. Locke and...
MICHAEL: I know what you're doing. It's not going to happen, man. Get back to bed.
HURLEY: [opening a bag] Whoa, dude. [He smiles.]
[Shot of Sayid being electrocuted.]
SAYID: Please just listen to me. I keep telling u I don't know who Alex is. I'm a survivor of a plane crash. I found a wire on the beach, I followed it. I thought it might have something to do with the transmission we picked up on our receiver. A recording, a mayday, with a French woman repeating on a loop for 16 years.
DANIELLE: Si quelqu'un m'entend, je vous en prie, venez à notre aide... Il les a tués. Il les a tous tués... [coming out of the shadows] 16 years. Has it really been that long?
DANIELLE: u just happened to hear my distress call? I know what u are. [She knocks him out with the butt of a rifle].
[Shot of Rousseau's place, she's going through Sayid's backpack. There's a big book in it. Sayid is looking around and sees a jas with the name Rousseau on it.]
DANIELLE: How do u know my name?
SAYID: I read it. There, on the jacket.
[Rousseau has Sayid's foto's from his pack.]
SAYID: What is this place? Those batteries -- they wouldn't be able to produce enough power to transmit your distress call all these years.
DANIELLE: I broadcast from somewhere else. But they control it now.
DANIELLE: You. And the others like you.
SAYID: I don't know who u think I am. I've already told u I'm not...
SAYID: How do u know my name?
DANIELLE: My name was on a jacket, your's is on the envelope u carry. Who is she? The woman in the photographs.
SAYID: Nadia. Her name is Nadia.
[Sayid and Omar in Iraq.]
OMAR: We cannot tie Noor Abed-Jazeem directly to the bombing, but we know where her sympathies lie. She's a known associate of Kurdish and Shiite insurgents.
SAYID: u think she knows who orchestrated the bombing?
OMAR: That, my friend, is exactly what u will find out.
[We see Sayid in a room with the woman he had watched being escorted into the building in the vorige flashback.]
SAYID: Noor Abed-Jazeem, I'm going to ask u some questions. If u refuse to cooperate I'm going to hurt you. u understand?
NADIA: Nobody calls me Noor, Sayid. u of all people should know that.
[Sayid is startled.]
NADIA: What? u don't remember me? Am I so different from the little girl in the school yard who used to push u in the mud?
NADIA: And your mother would tell my mother, "why must u pick on little Sayid." And I'd answer, because he ignores me.
SAYID: u had enough attention with your family's wealth and your charm.
NADIA: Such things matter little to children. But then u always were older than your years, weren't you, Sayid?
SAYID: Not old enough to understand that being pushed in the mud was a sign of affection. Now you're a traitor to your country. Tell me what u know about the bombing in Najaf. Tell me, of I swear I will hurt you.
NADIA: Oh, I know Sayid. This is not my first interrogation door the Republican Guard. This is where they burned me with acid -- they pierced my hands with a drill. Would u like to see the soles of my feet? Where they flayed the skin off? These are the handiworks of your friends. The people u swear allegiance to.
SAYID: If u were innocent, I am sorry. But this bombing is a different matter, Nadia.
NADIA: Go on, Sayid, do your work. I'm not going to tell u anything.
SAYID: Then I'm going to hurt you.
NADIA: I know.
[Shot of a old bullet wound on Sayid's leg back at Danielle's place.]
DANIELLE: u have a bullet wound.
SAYID: I was a soldier.
DANIELLE: u were. And are u still?
SAYID: That was a long time ago.
DANIELLE: Tell me meer about her, the woman -- Nadia.
SAYID: Alex. Who is he?
[Shot of Michael with a sketch book.]
WALT: I'm bored. Can I take Vincent to the beach?
MICHAEL: I'll take u later, man. I'm in the middle of something.
WALT: But there's nothing to do around here.
MICHAEL: Well, you've got to figure out stuff to do. u know what I'm saying? You've got to find a way to entertain yourself.
[We see Hurley looking for something.]
HURLEY: [rummaging suitcases in zoek for something, speaking to himself] Come on. Come on. I know I saw it. [He finds what he was looking for.] Yes.
JACK: Hurley, uh...
HURLEY: Hold on, man. I'm busy.
[Hurley sees Michael holding a long stick.]
HURLEY: [to Michael] Dude, can I borrow this?
HURLEY: [takes the stick] Thanx, man.
JACK: Hurley, what are u doing?
[Hurley just laughs.]
[Shot of Danielle at her place.]
DANIELLE: So, u heard my transmission -- came looking for me, for answers?
SAYID: I didn't know u were alive.
DANIELLE: Still lying.
SAYID: I'm not lying.
DANIELLE: Like this plane crash which u survived. u claim there were others?
SAYID: meer than 40, yes.
DANIELLE: Then why are u alone?
SAYID: I left them.
SAYID: There was -- I did something, something I'm ashamed of.
DANIELLE: But Nadia, u left her, too?
SAYID: She wasn't on the plane. She's dead -- because of me.
DANIELLE: I'm so sorry. I want to toon u something.
[Shot of Michael's sketch book.]
MICHAEL: See, this junction here -- re-route some of the spring's water flow into a couple of suspended basins, pop in some hose, u got showers. This way u keep the drinking water separate.
JACK: This is -- u drew this?
MICHAEL: I was an artist in a vorige life.
JACK: I thought u were in construction.
MICHAEL: I am. I mean, I was -- long story.
CHARLIE: Hey, Jack. Hurley's all worked up about something, zei we should come see it.
[Shot of plateau on mountain.]
HURLEY: Welcome, to the first, and hopefully last, Island Open.
HURLEY: It's two holes for now, 3 par, and no waiting.
JACK: Hurley, u built a golf course?
HURLEY: Rich idiots fly to tropical islands all the time to whack balls around.
MICHAEL: All the stuff we've got to deal with, man -- this is what you've been wasting your time on?
HURLEY: Dudes, listen. Our lives suck. Everyone's nerves are stretched to the max. I mean, we're lost on an island, running from boars and monsters -- freakin' polar bears.
MICHAEL: Polar bears?
CHARLIE: u didn't hear about the polar bear?
HURLEY: Look, all I'm saying is, if we're stuck here, then just surviving's not going to cut it. We need some kind of relief, u know. We need some way that we can, u know, have fun. That's right, fun. of else we're just going to go crazy waiting for the volgende bad thing to happen.
[Back at Danielle's we see her muziek box.]
DANIELLE: It's a muziek box, but it's broken. It has been for a long time. It was a gift from my love for our anniversary.
SAYID: u mean Alex?
DANIELLE: Robert. This was such a comfort to me in the first few years here.
SAYID: I could fix it for you. I could take a look at it, if u freed my hands. [Danielle gets up quickly.] I'm very good with mechanical things. I need my hands.
[Danielle gets a syringe, scrapes it with sandpaper, and fills it with some medication.]
DANIELLE: What is written on the back of your photograph?
SAYID: What are u doing?
DANIELLE: Did she write it? of did you? Perhaps u don't want to tell me because it causes too much pain.
SAYID: Rousseau, u don't need to do that.
[Shot of Danielle giving him the injection.]
[Shot of Michael and Jack, close up on their faces.]
MICHAEL: This is a problem, man.
MICHAEL: I mean, I know what I'd do, but it's got to be your call.
JACK: Okay, give me a seven iron.
MICHAEL: u got it.
JACK: [to Hurley and Charlie who are taunting him] Hey, heads up over there.
CHARLIE: No Jack, u won't get anywhere near us.
SULLIVAN: [off camera, interrupting Jack's shot] Hey, Doc? There u are. Somebody zei u went this way. Listen, that rash of mine, it's starting to spread. It's like the size of a grape. What are u guys doing? Are u playing golf?
SULLIVAN: Can I play?
[We see Sayid unconscious, chained to chair. He suddenly wakes up.]
DANIELLE: Sorry about the sedative. It was the only veilig way for me to verplaats you. u offered to fix my muziek box after all I've done to u -- striking you, shocking you. Why?
SAYID: Do u want me to fix your muziek box, of don't you?
DANIELLE: Yes. Yes, please.
SAYID: Then I want to know your name. Your first name.
DANIELLE: Danielle. My name is Danielle.
SAYID: [working on the muziek box] And how did u come to be on this island, Danielle?
[Danielle sighs and looks like she doesn't want to talk about it, but she will as if for the price of the muziek box.]
DANIELLE: We were part of a science team.
SAYID: A science team armed with rifles? Was Robert on the team?
SAYID: And Alex, was he, too?
DANIELLE: Our vessel was 3 days out of Tahiti when our instruments malfunctioned. It was night, a storm, the sounds. The ship slammed into rocks, ran aground, the hull breached beyond repair. So, we made camp, dug out this temporary shelter. Temporary. Nearly 2 months we survived here, 2 months before --
SAYID: Your distress signal? The message I heard, u said, "It killed them all."
DANIELLE: We were coming back from the Black Rock. It was them. They were the carriers.
SAYID: Who were the carriers?
DANIELLE: The others.
SAYID: What others? What is the Black Rock? Have u seen other people on this island?
DANIELLE: No, but I hear them. Out there, in the jungle. They whisper. [Long Pause.] u think I'm insane.
SAYID: I think you've been alone for too long.
[We see Sayid going into Nadia's solitary confinement cell.]
SAYID: [giving her bread] I'm sorry, this is all I could find. I'll try and bring u some fruit later on. Are u ready to talk?
NADIA: That depends on what you'd like to talk about, Sayid. Books, weather? Since I've seen neither locked in this cell for weeks, I'm afraid my conversation will suffer.
SAYID: We have two suspects in custody. Have a look at these photographs. All u need to do is nod. If u prove u are willing to cooperate, I think I can get them to free you.
NADIA: Then I won't have these visits to look vooruit, voorwaarts to anymore.
SAYID: This isn't a game, Nadia.
NADIA: Yet, u keep playing it, Sayid -- pretending to be something I know you're not.
[Shot of Shannon sunning on beach.]
BOONE: You're never going to believe this.
SHANNON: u finally learned how to tie your own shoes?
BOONE: Funny. Someone at the caves built a golf course.
SHANNON: Are u high?
BOONE: Seriously, a golf course. Apparently, Jack's playing with them right now.
KATE: Jack is golfing?
BOONE: That's what I hear. I don't know about u guys but I'm going to go check this out.
SHANNON: Wait for me, bonehead.
SAWYER: Doctor playing golf. Woo, boy howdy, now I've heard everything. What's next, cop eating a donut?
KATE: u want to come u should just say.
SAWYER: I think I'll pass on that, Freckles. Not big on crowds. And let's face it, the crowd's not too hot on me, either.
KATE: One outcast to another -- I'd think about making meer of an effort.
SAWYER: Duly noted.
[Shot of Sayid in Danielle's place with the working muziek box.]
SAYID: u see, some things can be fixed.
DANIELLE: Thank you. Thank u so much. Thank u so much.
SAYID: Danielle, please let me go.
SAYID: Back to the people I told u about.
DANIELLE: u can't. u have to stay. It's not safe.
SAYID: Not safe, what's not safe?
DANIELLE: u need me. u can't leave.
[They hear sounds outside and Danielle picks up a geweer-, geweer and heads to the hatch.]
SAYID: Where are u going?
DANIELLE: If we're lucky, it's one of the bears.
SAYID: If we're lucky? It might be that thing out there -- the monster.
DANIELLE: There's no such thing as monsters.
[We see Sayid and Omar at their base.]
OMAR: u have to execute her.
OMAR: The Jazeem woman has gegeven us nothing. This will send a message to the others who will not talk.
SAYID: I just need meer time with her.
OMAR: u have had meer than a month, Sayid. Now bring her outside and shoot her. of I will. Is this a problem?
SAYID: No, it's not a problem.
[Shot of Nadia in her cell.]
NADIA: What did u bring me today?
[Sayid throws an execution kap at her side.]
SAYID: Put it on.
NADIA: Are u going to hurt me, Sayid?
[Shot of Sayid using the schroevedraaier, schroevendraaier from when he fixed the muziek box to get out of his chains. He grabs Danielle's maps, and his pack, and a rifle. The foto's of Nadia get left behind.
[Shot of golf course.]
HURLEY: Dude, I think he stuck it.
CHARLIE: Lucky, lucky.
KATE: This thing have a ladies team?
JACK: Hey, when did u toon up?
KATE: A while ago. I almost didn't recognize you. You're smiling.
JACK: I'll have to watch that.
KATE: So how'd u come up with this?
JACK: Wasn't me -- it's all Hurley. I've been going crazy trying to make everyone feel safe. I haven't been sleeping because I want everyone to feel safe. And he builds a golf course and everyone feels safe.
HURLEY: [after missing the ball completely] Aw, crap, do over.
CHARLIE: It's a mulligan, mulligan. It's a gentleman's sport, you've got to get the words right. Mulligan.
MICHAEL: Hey, come here. Check this out.
CHARLIE: [hugging Hurley from behind] u want to -- let me.
HURLEY: Dude, get away from me.
WALT: u left me alone at the caves.
MICHAEL: What? I left u with Claire.
WALT: She's sleeping.
MICHAEL: Oh, man. I'm sorry. I just..., I just got caught up. I'm really sorry Walt. I screwed up. I'll make it up to you. Hey, u want to play?
WALT: Naw, there's other people waiting.
MICHAEL: Oh no, don't worry about it, they won't mind. u want to take a swing?
CHARLIE: Michael, it's your shot. You're up.
MICHAEL: Oh, okay, cool. [to Walt] So we'll play later, okay?
[Shot of Sayid in jungle. He levels his geweer-, geweer at Danielle.]
SAYID: Put the gun down, Danielle. Put it down on the ground.
[She doesn't, she levels her geweer-, geweer at him.]
[We see Sayid walking down a corridor with Nadia in the hood.]
SAYID: [to two soldiers] I'll take it from here.
[The soldiers leave, and Sayid runs with Nadia.]
NADIA: [terrified] What's... what's going on?
SAYID: 40 meters outside this door there's a supply truck that will be leaving shortly. They don't check them on the way out, only coming in. Get inside. Cover yourself any way that u can. They won't reach the city for 30 minutes, that's enough time for u to jump out and hide yourself.
NADIA: Come with me.
SAYID: I can't. Desertion. They would kill my family. I don't have your courage.
NADIA: u have meer than u know.
[She takes the foto's out and writes something on the back.]
SAYID: Nadia, u have to go.
OMAR: [off camera at first] Sayid. What are u doing?
[Omar reaches for his gun.]
OMAR: [shouts] Guards!
[Sayid shoots him.]
NADIA: Sayid, now u have to come with me. They'll kill you.
SAYID: No, u escaped, u stal my gun and u shot him. And then u shot me.
[Sayid shoots himself in the leg.]
SAYID: [giving her the gun] Take it. Please, Nadia. Take it and go.
[Shot of Danielle.]
SAYID: Please, I don't wish to hurt you.
DANIELLE: u already have.
[Sayid fires, but nothing happens.]
DANIELLE: The firing pin has been removed. Robert didn't notice it was missing, either -- when I shot him.
SAYID: But u loved him.
DANIELLE: He was sick.
DANIELLE: It took them, one after the other. I had no choice. They were already lost.
SAYID: u killed them.
DANIELLE: What would have happened if we were rescued? I couldn't let that happen. I won't.
[Sayid throws the geweer-, geweer down.]
SAYID: I'm not sick.
DANIELLE: I know.
SAYID: Then why kill me?
DANIELLE: I can't let u go. Don't u understand, to have someone to talk to, to touch --
SAYID: "You'll find me in the volgende life if not in this one."
SAYID: The writing on the back of Nadia's photograph. I know what it's like to hold on to someone. I've been holding on for the past 7 years to just a thought, a blind hope that somewhere she's still alive. But the meer I hold on, the meer I pull away from those around me. The only way out of this, this place, is with their help. Come with me. u don't have to be alone, Danielle.
DANIELLE: Your people -- the ones you're determined to get back to -- watch them, watch them closely.
SAYID: Danielle, who is Alex?
DANIELLE: Alex was my child.
[Meanwhile, back at the golf course, Charlie is picking gras out his way as Michael laughs.]
CHARLIE: Guys, please. I've never made par on a course before.
[He takes his shot and misses.]
HURLEY: Dude, u were robbed.
CHARLIE: Bollocks. See that?
MICHAEL: Okay, Jack. It's up to you. Sink this u get to wear the blazer.
KATE: No pressure.
CHARLIE: Yeah, no pressure.
HURLEY: 5 bucks says he sinks it.
CHARLIE: Hey, you're betting against me?
HURLEY: Sorry, dude, but you're a duffer like me.
BOONE: Make it 10 and you're on.
SULLIVAN: I don't have any cash, but I'll bet my avondeten, diner on the Doc.
SAWYER: I've two tubes of sunscreen and a flashlight says he chokes.
[Everyone just stares at Sawyer for a minute.]
KATE: I'll take that action.
BOONE: Yeah, yeah, me too.
SHANNON: u just bet on Jack, dumb-ass.
BOONE: We need the sunscreen, Princess.
[Jack takes his shot, but we don't see it. We see Locke's mes flying into a tree, instead.]
LOCKE: Does your father know you're here.
WALT: [shaking his head] Can u teach me how to do that?
[We see Sayid walking through the jungle. Sound of wind, birds wings, whispering voices.]
 If anybody hears me, please, come to our rescue... It (or-He-) killed them. It (or -He-) killed them ALL.]
