Trivia

Desmond's condition following the mishap during the helicopter flight to the boat is very similar to that of Billy Pilgrim, the main character of the novel 'Slaughterhouse-Five', who becomes "unstuck in time" and has multiple experiences in which his consciousness jumps backwards and forwards to different points within his own lifespan.

Goofs

When Desmond is speaking with Mr. Widmore in the restroom, Widmore washes his hands by grabbing a towel from a tray to the right of the sink. He leaves the water running and leaves the restroom. Desmond then flashes back to the boat. When Desmond flashes back to the restroom it looks like the tray is to the left of the sink that was left on by Mr. Widmore in the previous scene.

In fact the shot has simply widened showing towels next to each sink in the restroom. The towel used by Mr Widmore, as well as the tray he got it from, is still to the right of the sink as he left it. See more »

Desmond Hume: You did.
Daniel Faraday: Wait a second. This is ridiculous.
Desmond Hume: I know about Eloise.

When writers put on their thinking caps...
28 February 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This episode was probably one of the best moments in modern television. It had all the parts: suspense, intelligence, heart, all intricately woven into a fascinating original story with a beautifully uplifting ending. I literally sat stunned on my couch for minutes after the credits rolled into commercial. Kudo's to the cast, crew, writers, editor, and director Jack Bender for making this a very enjoyable hour on Earth.

99% of todays programming is complete garbage which is why the 18 to 50 year old male demographic has left television.

Episodes like this is a good start in bringing them back.
