Sayid Jarrah: You're not the best candidate for this kind of mission.
Jack Shephard: What kind of mission is that?
Sayid Jarrah: I'm going to make Locke give me Charlotte. And I'm going to do it without any bloodshed.
Jack Shephard: As opposed to the way I'd do it.
Sayid Jarrah: Last time you encountered him, you put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. That's not good diplomacy.

[last lines]

Frank Lapidus: Traded him?

"Lost: Sundown (#6.6)" (2010)
Omar: You bring flowers for my wife?
Sayid Jarrah: I'll give them to you if you want.

Sayid Jarrah: Why is Claire here? And what was she talking about?
Dogen: She's a confused girl, under the influence of an angry man.
Sayid Jarrah: What man?
Dogen: For years, he has been trapped, but now Jacob is gone, he's free. This man will not stop until he has destroyed every living thing on this island. He is evil incarnate.

John Locke: What if I told you that you could have anything you wanted. What if I said you can have anything in the entire world?
Sayid Jarrah: I would tell you that the only thing I ever wanted, died in my arms, and I'll never see it again.
John Locke: What if you could?

Sayid Jarrah: There is a man in the jungle... about a mile south of us by the outer wall. He sent me back here to give you a message. He wants you to know that Jacob is dead. And because he's gone, none of you have to stay here anymore. You're free. The man that I met is leaving the island forever. And those of you who want to go with him, should leave the temple and join him. You have until sundown to decide.
Cindy Chandler: What happens at sundown if we stay?
Sayid Jarrah: You die.

Dogen: I was a business man once. In Osaka. I worked at a bank. I was good at my job. Very successful. And one Friday, I was promoted. My associates took me out to celebrate. I had too much to drink. Every Friday I picked my son up from baseball. He was twelve. The accident was very bad. I survived. But my son... And then, in the hospital, a man came to me. A man I had never met. And he told me that he could save my son's life, but I would have to come here... to this island... where I would have a new job. And I could never see my boy again.
Sayid Jarrah: Who was this man?
Dogen: His name was Jacob.
Sayid Jarrah: Jacob drives a hard bargain.
Dogen: The man outside... I take it he offered you a similar bargain?
Sayid Jarrah: Yes.


"Lost: The Greater Good (#1.21)" (2005)
Sayid: I did it because I sensed you might be our best hope in surviving here, but I don't forgive what you did, and I certainly don't trust you, and now you're going to take me to the hatch.
Locke: Hatch? But I already showed you...
Sayid: John, no more lies.

Shannon Rutherford: You asked if you could do anything for me.

Sayid: Please do.
Locke: The first week after the crash, there was a cave-in. Jack was trapped. Do you remember that?

[Sayid has Locke at gun point]
Sayid: This is one time you better *not* be telling the truth!


"Lost: Tabula Rasa (#1.3)" (2004)
Sayid: Basic photography - point and shoot. Satellites can shoot but they must be told where to point.
Charlie: Oh... bollocks.

Sayid: To relay what we heard, without fully understanding it will cause a panic. If we tell them what we know, we take away the hope, and hope is a very dangerous thing to lose.

Charlie: They'll find us. They have satellites in space that can take pictures of your license plate.
Sayid: If only we were all wearing license plates.

Sayid: [Boone slips the gun and clip from Sawyer and Sayid while they sleep, to stand watch] Give it back to me.
Sawyer: Oh, yeah. Give it to "Al Jazeera". He'll protect us.


"Lost: Abandoned (#2.6)" (2005)
Shannon: So, does all this - the tent, flowers - mean that we're serious now?
Sayid: Quite definitely not. I do this for all the girls I meet on deserted islands.

[talking about the gun]
Shannon: You need to carry that all the time?
Sayid: I only carry it because I have someone to protect.

[Shannon falls]
Sayid: Shannon! Are you okay?
Shannon: Do not help me up!
Sayid: Let's go back.
Shannon: Why don't you believe me? I need you to believe in me.
Sayid: I do believe in you.
Shannon: You don't! No-one does. They think that I'm some kind of joke. They think I'm worthless.
Sayid: Shannon you are not worthless.
Shannon: You say that now, but you don't... You're just gonna leave me. I know as soon as we get out of here you're just going to leave me.
Sayid: I will never leave you. I love you. And I believe you.
Shannon: You do?
Sayid: I do.


"Lost: Confidence Man (#1.8)" (2004)
Sayid: [Sayid plans to get asthma medicine from Sawyer] Part of my training entailed getting the enemy to communicate. Just give me ten minutes with him. He'll give us the medicine.

[last lines]
Sayid: [leaving camp] I've worse things to fear than what's in the jungle. What I did today - what I almost did - I swore to do never again. If I can't keep that promise, I have no right to be here.
Kate: There's nowhere to go.
Sayid: Someone has to walk the shore and map the island. And see what else there is. I can't think of a better person to do it than the only one I trust. I hope we meet again.

Sawyer: You know what I think, Ali? I think you've never actually tortured anybody in your life.
Sayid: Unfortunately for us both, you're wrong.

James 'Sawyer' Ford: He's our you.


"Lost: One of Them (#2.14)" (2006)
Jack: [walks in on Locke and Sayid examining Henry Gale, who Rousseau shot in the arm with an arrow] What the hell is going on here?
Sayid: Rousseau trapped him in the jungle. She believes he's an... Other.
Henry Gale: An other *what*?
Jack: So you shot him with an arrow?
Sayid: Do I have the bow?

Sayid: My name is Sayid Jarrah, and I am a torturer.


"Lost: The Whole Truth (#2.16)" (2006)
Sayid: Do Jack and Locke know about this?
Ana-Lucia Cortez: Jack and Locke are a little too busy worrying about Locke and Jack.

Locke: You shot him with an arrow?
Sayid: Do I have a bow?


"Lost: What Kate Does (#6.3)" (2010)
Sayid Jarrah: Who are these people? What do they want?
Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: It's the Others, dude. They caught us... again. I dunno, I think they are trying to protect us.
Miles Straume: Uh, as you can see, Hugo here has assumed the leadership position so that's pretty great.

Jack Shephard: And you know, before when you... when you thanked me for saving your life, I, I didn't have anything to do with it Sayid. I didn't fix you. They did.
Sayid Jarrah: I don't care who fixed me. I only care about who I trust.


"Lost: The Long Con (#2.13)" (2006)

Hurley: Hey man. You gonna put the lime in the coconut and drink 'em both up?
[Sayid doesn't get it]
Hurley: Lime in the coconut? The song?
Sayid: What do you want Hurley?

Hurley: [listening to a radio transmission] You hear how clear that is? That's gotta be close, right?

Miles: Oh my God, you guys were on Oceanic flight 815.
[with huge sarcasm]
Miles: WOW! Is that better?

Sayid Jarrah: Juliet, you lived amongst the Others, why would Ben say the people coming here intend to do us harm?
Juliet Burke: Because he's a liar. And he's trying to scare us, that's what Ben does. Or, because the people coming here intend to do us harm.


"Lost: There's No Place Like Home: Part 2 (#4.13)" (2008)
Jack Shephard: We're gonna have to lie.
Sayid Jarrah: Lie about what?
Jack Shephard: Everything. All of it. Every moment since we crashed on the island.
Frank Lapidus: Jack, now I know I'm new to this group and everything but isn't this the place where everybody starts jumping up and down and hugging each other?

Sayid: This argument is irrelevant.

Jack: Sayid, don't.
Sayid: Jack.
Jack: Don't. It's not real. Look, you want to push the button, you do it yourself.
Locke: If it's not real, then what are you doing here, Jack? Why did you come back? Why do you find it so hard to believe?
Jack: Why do you find it so easy?
Locke: It's never been easy!
Kate: Maybe you should just do it.
Jack: No...

Jack Shephard: When Juliet told me they were coming, the first thing I thought was, "Where the hell are we gonna hide this time?" But hiding is pointless. They're just gonna keep coming back. And so I went out and found some help. And, for the past few days, she's been bringing dynamite back from The Black Rock. For the very first time, we know exactly what they want, when they are coming to get it, and they have no idea that we are going to be waiting for them. So, Juliet is going to mark the tents with the white rocks, just like she was told to. But there's not going to be any pregnant women inside; there's gonna be plenty of what we just used on that tree.
