[Kate looks near tears, as does Jack]
Kate Austen: This is not gonna change.
Jack Shephard: No, I'm sick of lying. We made a mistake.

Jack Shephard: We have to go back, Kate.
[Kate turns and walks away]

Jack: Maybe not, but it'll feel good.

Kate: [reading Sawyer's letter] Dear Mr. Sawyer, you don't know who I am, but I know who you are, and I know what you done. You had sex with my mother and then you stole my dad's money all away. So he got angry, and he killed my mother. And then he killed himself too.
Sawyer: Don't stop now! You're getting to the good part.
Kate: [continuing to read the letter] All I know is your name. But one of these days, I'm gonna find you and I'm gonna give you this letter, so you remember what you done to me. You killed my parents, Mr. Sawyer.

[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.

Kate: You try too hard, Sawyer. I ask you to help a woman who can't breathe, and you want me to kiss you? Nobody's that disgusting... I've seen you, ya know.
Sawyer: Seen me what?
Kate: With that piece of paper. The one you keep in your pocket. Seen the expression on your face when you read it. How carefully you fold it up. Means something to you. So you can play games all you want. But I know there's a human being in there somewhere. Give me the medication.

Jack: Didn't you guys shoot a polar bear last week?
Kate: Yeah.
Jack: Where'd *that* come from?

Charlie: [holds Kate's shirt that she removed while running from bees] Someone left this.

Jack Shephard: You should go with them, Kate.
Kate Austen: Are you serious?
Jack Shephard: Yeah.
Kate Austen: What, don't you trust Sayid?

Kate Austen: So what's preventing him from doing to me what he did to Naomi?
Jack Shephard: Sawyer won't let him.

Sayid Jarrah: Naomi, were you close to her?
Miles: Nope. Met her on the boat.
Sayid Jarrah: You don't seem particularly affected by her death.

Sawyer: No it's not. This one's black, different weave. It's all in the details, and they're wrong.
Kate: Well if it wasn't them, then who?

Kate: Jack, how well do you know Ana-Lucia?
[He looks at her and then looks away]
Kate: It's just... The Others... I was out there with you, heard that man say that if we stayed away they'd leave us alone. And we've left them alone, so why would they attack us a few days later?
Jack: If it wasn't them, then who was it?
Kate: Like I said, how well do you know Ana-Lucia?

"Lost: Outlaws (#1.16)" (2005)
Kate: [walking up behind Sawyer who is tracking a boar] It's a foot print. Based on the weight and the distance between strides, I'd say you've been following Boone for about an hour.
Sawyer: Look...
Kate: It could be Charlie, I suppose.
Sawyer: I'm tickled you're taking such an interest in my affairs. I really am. So don't take it personal when I tell you...
Kate: I want carte blanche.
Sawyer: What?
Kate: It's simple. You can't track that boar without my help. Over the last few hours you have managed to follow the tracks of humans, birds, a rock slide, yourself, basically everything except boar. You have no idea what you're doing.

Kate: A boar wouldn't just attack you for no reason.
Sawyer: Thank you, boar expert. This one did!

Kate: [about the boar that Sawyer thinks has a vendetta against him] Maybe it's got your scent, doesn't like your cologne.
Sawyer: I don't wear cologne.
Kate: Yes, you do.
Sawyer: Yeah, well...

Sawyer: [playing "I Never" with Kate] I never been to Disneyland.
[Kate doesn't drink]
Sawyer: Oh, that's just sad.
Kate: [Kate shrugs before thinking of a question] I never wore pink.
[Sawyer sighs and drinks]
Kate: I knew it!
Sawyer: [shrugging] The '80s.
[Sawyer thinks of a question]
Sawyer: I never voted Democrat.
Kate: I never voted.
Sawyer: [Sawyer drinks] I've never been in love.
Kate: You've never been in love?
Sawyer: I ain't drinking, am I?
Kate: [Kate drinks] I've never had a one-night stand.
[Sawyer drinks]
Kate: Bottoms up, sailor!
Sawyer: I gotta drink for each one?
Kate: Your turn.
Sawyer: I never been married.
Kate: [Kate has a small sip] It didn't last long.


"Lost: What Kate Did (#2.9)" (2005)
Kate: Why didn't you tell me that Wayne was my father?
Sgt. Sam Austen: I didn't tell you because I knew you'd kill him... and your mother loved him. You were five years old... I wanted to take you along with me, she wouldn't let me.
Kate: So why didn't you kill him?
Sgt. Sam Austen: Because I don't have murder in my heart.

Kate: [sees a large horse and thinks she's hallucinating] Do you see that?
Sawyer: If you mean the big ass horse in the middle of the jungle, then, yes, I see it.

Kate: Can you hear me? Sawyer? Wayne? I'm probably crazy and this doesn't matter, but maybe you're in there somehow. But you asked me a question. You asked me why... why I did it. It wasn't because you drove my father away, or the way you looked at me, or because you beat her. It's because I hated that you were a part of me... that I would never be good. That I would never have anything good. And every time that I look at Sawyer... every time I feel something for him... I see you, Wayne. And it makes me sick.
James "Sawyer" Ford: That's about the sweetest thing I've ever heard.
Kate: Sawyer?
James "Sawyer" Ford: Who the hell's Wayne? I'm in a bunk-bed?
Kate: Yeah, you're in a bunk-bed.
James "Sawyer" Ford: Are we saved?
Kate: No, Sawyer. Not yet.

Kate: [Noticing the bruise where Wayne hurt Diane's wrist her] How's that wrist?
Diane: What, this? No, that shelf in the kitchen sticks out sometimes. You'd think I'd remember it was there, but I banged it.
Kate: Don't.
Diane: I made my bed, Katherine.
Kate: Well, your bed's gone, Ma.

Kate Austen: [to Claire] One, two, three. Push, push.

Jack Shephard: Kate, if we're going to be safe, if we're going to protect the people that we left behind, tomorrow morning I'm going to have to convince everyone to lie. If it's just me they're never going to go for it. So I'm going to turn to you first. Are you with me?

Mechanic: I got a steady hand but I kinda feel like we got off on the wrong foot.

Aldo: You've been on this island for a while, right? Ever see a big pillar of black smoke, makes a ticka ticka sound, looks pissed off?


"Lost: A Tale of Two Cities (#3.1)" (2006)
Kate Austen: Where am I?
Tom Friendly: You really don't think I'm gonna answer that do you?

Sawyer: You okay, Freckles?
Kate Austen: Yeah.

Sawyer: Got a proposition for ya. You tell me what's inside and I'll give it to ya.
Kate: You serious?
Sawyer: Hell, no way to open the damn thing! At this point all I care about is satisfying my own curiosity.

Sawyer: You shouldn't be out here alone. Not after what happened...

"Lost: I Do (#3.6)" (2006)

Pickett: I want you to watch!
Sawyer: Close your eyes, Freckles.
Kate Austen: Stand up.
Sawyer: Close your eyes!

Sawyer: We ain't on our Island. We're on another one, like Alcatraz. A couple of miles off shore. So unless you're a mermaid, or you have a boat, there's no point. Because we've go nowhere to run.
Kate Austen: When were you planning on telling me this?
Sawyer: I wasn't.
Kate Austen: Why not?
Sawyer: Because I wanted you to believe that we still had a damned chance.


"Lost: Par Avion (#3.12)" (2007)

He wouldn't even know that you ever cared about him. I haven't asked you questions about my daughter, because I do not want to know the answers.

Kate: So how'd you get here? How'd you get onto this island?

Kate: Why would you want to come back?
Patchy: You would not understand.
