Goofs

Charlie decides he will swim down to the Looking Glass Station in order to remove the jam which prevents radio signals from leaving the island. In Season 1, Charlie said he could not swim during an incident where someone was drowning. But Charlie knows his swimming ability is limited as evidenced by his flashbacks and his reluctance to tell Desmond how long he can hold his breath for. Thus, it is logical for Charlie to swim down to the station because he knows it to be a one-way trip. See more »

Quotes

Charlie Pace: We're gonna be okay, you know.
Claire Littleton: Are we?
Charlie Pace: We're alive on a beautiful island! We'll sleep under the stars and, before you know it, the helicopters will come and take us home.
Claire Littleton: You really think they'll find us?
Charlie Pace: Well, yeah, why wouldn't they?
Claire Littleton: Thanks.
Charlie Pace: I'm Charlie.
Claire Littleton: I'm Claire. Nice to meet you, Charlie.

One of the show's greatest hits
21 December 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

"Greatest Hits" is the greatest example of a 'set-up' episode I can think of. Rarely has any episode in any television series which was basically leading directly into and setting up the season/series finale been so absolutely riveting and involving. The on-island stuff, outside Charlie's 'greatest hits' list, is essentially a prelude to the action-packed "Through the Looking Glass", while the flashbacks, when coupled with Charlie's actions on the island, particularly late in the episode during and after his conversation with Desmond, are among the show's most unabashedly sentimental and yet beautiful scenes. Dominic Monaghan gives his best performance in the role, and the episode is the finest achievement for Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz as writers and for Stephen Williams as director. A thrilling and exciting episode, sure, but also one of the most emotional on the series, even for someone who is generally ambivalent about Charlie as a character.
