Storyline

Jack, Kate and Charlie return to the group, but the transceiver is broken. Sayid Jarrah fixes the apparatus and organizes an expedition with Kate, Charlie, Shannon Rutherford and her brother Boone Carlyle and the dangerous James "Sawyer" Ford to hike and climb a mountain to transmit a SOS. The group receives a sixteen years old distress call from a French woman in the island instead and kills a polar bear. They return to the survivor's base and decide to hide the information to preserve the hope of the group. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Dominic Monaghan, 'Matthew Fox', and Evangeline Lilly were not allowed to see the cockpit set before shooting. They were blindfolded until cameras rolled. They were walked down the path, cameras now on, and their reaction to seeing the cockpit leaning against the trees was real. This one-take is what was used in the pilot episode. See more »

Goofs

After Sayid and Sawyer finish fighting, Micheal hands Jack a pair of handcuffs. After that, while Sawyer is shouting, you can clearly spot that in one scene his sleeves reach his wrists, then its folded, then it's back till his wrists. They used 2-3 shots to make one scene. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Charlie: [as Jack fiddles with the transceiver] Anything?
Jack: You keep asking if there's anything.
Charlie: Pardon me for appearing desperate, but before the pilot was *ripped* from the cockpit, he did say that no one's going to find us unless we get that transceiver working. So... is there anything?
Jack: No.
Charlie: Okay.

The second half of the pilot reveals that the transceiver is damaged. Once it is repaired, several survivors decide to get it to higher ground. The rest of this episode plays out somewhat like the first episode. The group tromps through the woods and not surprisingly runs afoul of an island monster. When they are finally able to use the transceiver, they are in for a very large shock. As the episode ends, we know a bit more about some of the characters and realize not everyone is who he or she appears to be. The episode holds onto its edge, although it is pretty clear the show is headed into Twilight Zone territory in future. Wait until you see what the monster turns out to be, for instance.
