"Lost: Outlaws (#1.16)" (2005)
Sawyer: [talking with Jack's father in a bar in Australia] What'd you handle back in the States?
Dr. Christian Shephard: I was a Chief of Surgery.
Sawyer: Was?
Dr. Christian Shephard: Yeah, was.
Sawyer: But we're in hell, huh?
Dr. Christian Shephard: Don't let the air conditioning fool you, son. You are here, too. You are suffering. But, don't beat yourself up about it. It's fate. Some people are just supposed to suffer. That's why the Red Sox will never win the damn series. I have a son who's about your age. He's not like me. He does what's in his heart. He's a good man maybe a great one. Right now, he thinks that I hate him. He thinks I feel betrayed by him. But what I really feel is gratitude and pride because of what he did to me. What he did for me. It took more courage than I have. There's a pay phone over here. I could pick it up and I could call my son. I could tell him about all this. I could tell him that I love him. One simple phone call and I could fix everything.
Sawyer: Why don't you?
Dr. Christian Shephard: Because I am weak.

Dr. Christian Shephard: That's why the Sox will never win the series.

Dr. Christian Shephard: You know why they call Australia the place down under? Because it's the closest you can get to hell without getting burned.

Christian Shephard: I believe in you, John. You can do this.

Christian Shephard: Say hello to my son.
John Locke: Who is your son?

"Lost: White Rabbit (#1.5)" (2004)
Dr. Christian Shephard: [to a young Jack] I had a boy on my table today. I don't know, maybe a year younger than you. He had a bad heart. It got real hairy, real fast. And everybody's looking to your old man to make decisions. And I was able to make those decisions because at the end of the day, after the boy died, I was able to wash my hands and come home to dinner. You know, watch a little Carol Burnett, laugh till my sides hurt. And how can I do that, hmm? I mean even when I fail, how do I do that, Jack? Because I have what it takes. Don't choose, Jack, don't decide. You don't want to be a hero. You don't want to try and save everyone because when you fail... you just don't have what it takes.

Christian Shephard: Everyone dies sometime, kiddo. Some of them before you, some... long after you.
Jack Shephard: But why are they all here now?
Christian Shephard: Well, there is no "now", here.
Jack Shephard: Where are we, Dad?
Christian Shephard: This is a place that you... that you all made together so that you could find one another. The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people on that island. That's why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them, and they needed you.
Jack Shephard: For what?
Christian Shephard: To remember. And to... let go.
Jack Shephard: Kate... She said we were leaving.
Christian Shephard: Not leaving. No. Moving on.
Jack Shephard: Where are we going?
Christian Shephard: Let's go find out.
