Ilana: What lies in the shadow of the statue?
Richard Alpert: "Ille qui nos omnes servabit." He, who is going to save us all.
Jacob: You like it? I did it myself. It takes a very long time when you're making the thread, but, uh... I suppose that's the point, isn't it?
John Locke: Hello, Jacob.
Jacob: Well, you found your loophole.
John Locke: Indeed I did. And you have no idea what I've gone through to be here.
Ben Linus: Have you met before?
John Locke: In a manner of speaking.
John Locke: Do what I asked you to, Ben.
Jacob: Benjamin... whatever he's told you, I want you to understand one thing. You have a choice.
Ben Linus: What "choice"?
Jacob: You can do what he asked, or you can go, leave us to discuss our... issues.
Ben Linus: Oh... so now, after all this time, you've decided to stop ignoring me. 35 years I lived on this island, and all I ever heard was your name over and over. Richard would bring me your instructions - all those slips of paper, all those lists - and I never questioned anything. I did as I was told. But when I dared to ask to see you myself, I was told, "You have to wait. You have to be patient." But when HE asked to see you? He gets marched straight up here as if was Moses. So... why him? Hmm? What was it that was so wrong with me? What about me?
Jacob: [pause] What ABOUT you?
Sun Kwon: Who's Jacob?
Ben Linus: He's in charge of this island.
Sun Kwon: You said John was in charge.
Ben Linus: No, I said he was the leader. A title that I have discovered is incredibly temporary. But everyone answers to someone and the leader answers to Jacob.
James 'Sawyer' Ford: Why you doing this, Juliet?
Juliet Burke: [voice breaking] I... If I never meet you, then I never have to lose you.
Ben Linus: Why do you want me to kill Jacob, John?
John Locke: Because despite your loyal service to this island, you got cancer. You had to watch your own daughter gunned down right in front of you. And your reward for those sacrifices? You were banished. And you did all this in the name of a man you've never even met. So the question is, Ben, why the hell WOULDN'T you want to kill Jacob?
Juliet Burke: Come on! Come on! No! Come on! Come on! Come on, you son of a bitch!
Bram: How long have you been listening to us?
Frank Lapidus: Long enough to wonder what the hell I'm a candidate for.
Richard Alpert: Over 20 years ago, a man named John Locke, he walked right into our camp and he told me that he was going to be our leader. I've gone off the island three times since then to visit him, but he never seemed particularly special to me.
Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: [to Sayid] Don't worry, dude. Everything will be fine when Jack changes the future. Or the past. One of those.
Man in Black: Do you have any idea how badly I want to kill you?
Man in Black: One of these days, sooner or later, I'm going to find a loophole, my friend.
Jacob: Well, when you do, I'll be right here.
Man in Black: Always nice talking to you, Jacob.
Jacob: Nice talking to you, too.
