A transcript is a retrospective written record of dialogue, and like a script (a prospective record) may include other scene information such as props or actions. In the case of a transcript of a film or television episode, ideally it is a verbatim record. Because closed-captioning is usually written separately, its text may have errors and does not necessarily reflect the true Canonical transcript.
Transcripts for Lost episodes up to and including "Enter 77" are based on the transcriptions by Lost-TV member Spooky with aid of DVR, and at times, closed captions for clarification.

[Opening Lost Theme]
Kris White: Welcome to the official Lost podcast hosted by abc dot com. We hope you enjoyed our first video podcast of the year. Periodically though the rest of the season we'll be bringing you some more video podcasts that will take us behind the scenes at Lost. Coming up next month: our video podcast will give you a sneak peek at a scoring session with Michael Giacchino. This is of course a follow up on last year's audio only version. We just figured it would be nice to actually *see* an Angklung in action. Of course we'll also have our regular audio podcasts with the writers of Lost each episode. With some other surprises coming up later this season. Which brings us to today's podcast. Executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse will join us to discuss the first episode back. They'll also entertain some fan questions, and preview next week's episode, "Flashes before your eyes", which airs on Wednesday, February 14th from ten to eleven p.m. It's the perfect Valentine's Day viewing. First up though we have a special featurette with the cast member who's been shot, stabbed, and electrocuted. And yet, lived to tell the tale. Actor Josh Holloway.
[Sound clip from Lost of Sawyer calling Alex "Underdog" from Not In Portland]
Kris White: It's now become an integral part of the show. Sawyer's, trash talking, name-calling habits. So when we sat down with him, naturally, we asked him how much of a hand he plays in Sawyer's nasty little habit.
Josh Holloway: They're all the writer's. That - I would love to claim them [laughs], but fact is, those guys are brilliant, and I love their writing style because yes, they have a definite plan - they know what's up. But they're also very sensitive to the actors' personalities and write around it. And the nickname thing - I always give people nicknames, and Damon hung out for the first month in the pilot and he just would incorporate our personalities. So I think that kind of - Sawyer was already kind of that way, but then they're like ah! the nickname thing is funny. So they went with that, and it stuck. I remember I called Maggie "Sweetcheeks," on my own, on the pilot [laughs] and then it kind of roller balled, you know, from there. "Freckles" was in there, that day, when I took the gun from her, and then I just called Shannon "Sweetcheeks" and then it went [laughs] from there I don't - it's been in every script there's something in there.
[Sound clip from Lost of Sawyer calling Locke "Mr. Clean".]
Josh Holloway: What I would like to see, is a few nicknames that stick. Like "Freckles" stuck. You know, it's, it's the nature of, if you hang out with friends long enough, then one sticks, and that's the one you call them. You know like, "Mr. Clean" for, for Locke, I *love* that, I should just call him "Clean" all the time, you know. But, I don't know [laughs] - they're the geniuses, I just do it.
Kris White: With Sawyer headed back to the beach, it's only a matter of time before he has a chance to flex his name calling muscles again, which I'm sure the rest of the castaways have missed. To find out what we've been missing though, we now turn it over to executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse for a recap of last week's episode.
[Podcast Theme Music]
Carlton Cuse: Well hi, it's Carlton Cuse here.
Damon Lindelof: Is this a new way of introducing the - the podcast?
Carlton Cuse: Yes, I thought we'd change it up a little bit -
Damon Lindelof: Alright
Carlton Cuse: - now that we're back for season two - three b -
Damon Lindelof: I wasn't - I wasn't
Carlton Cuse: - Or three point one or whatever they're calling it.
Damon Lindelof: I wasn't prepared, so do it again.
Carlton Cuse: Hi, Damon!
Damon Lindelof: Hi Carl- that's the old way we did it.
Carlton Cuse: [laughing] Well here we are, and at least you know I'm Carlton, and sitting to my left -
Damon Lindelof: Is the other guy.
Carlton Cuse: Is Damon, the other guy. And we're back. Uh, we hope you guys enjoyed the episode last night as much as we enjoy the fact that we're *finally* back on the air. That is exciting, isn't it?
Damon Lindelof: It is, and now, you know, apparently there's going to be fifteen straight episodes without a single repeat.
Carlton Cuse: Well, sixteen counting last night's.
Damon Lindelof: Well yeah -
Carlton Cuse: Let's not give up -
Damon Lindelof: From from from there, from now on, fifteen more.
Carlton Cuse: Exactly.
Damon Lindelof: So you can be, you can begin complaining now, that that's not enough, [laughing] I think, well actually start complaining around twelve more -
Carlton Cuse: Okay.
Damon Lindelof: - it seems like, give us the benefit of the doubt
Carlton Cuse: - That's good.
Damon Lindelof: - For a couple more weeks, because theoretically it could be argued that 24 is - eight better than we are because they do twenty four straight.
Carlton Cuse: They *are* eight better than we are.
Damon Lindelof: They are?
Carlton Cuse: There's no question about it. Alright but they don't have a class at Tufts University that is using this podcast as required reading.
Damon Lindelof: That's -
Carlton Cuse: Actually this is a -
Damon Lindelof: Is that true?
Carlton Cuse: Here is - That is true. And um -
Damon Lindelof: Required? But it's -
Carlton Cuse: You know what? You know what?
Damon Lindelof: - not even reading?
Carlton Cuse: It's like - have you ever taken like - have you ever gotten a traffic ticket and done one of those online um traffic school things where they have like - they have like certain words in there to make sure that you actually study them all? So the word is "buzzbee." If you actually have not listened to this podcast, your teachers are going to say "what was the magical word", and then you won't know it. The word is "buzzbee".
Damon Lindelof: My life is complete if a - if a teacher, or a professor, at Tufts University comes in and says "what is the magic word" and ninety hands go up and they all say "buzzbee". That is, I can literally die a happy man if that happens.
Carlton Cuse: Okay.
Damon Lindelof: What's become of Tuft's University [Carlton laughing], seriously - what do you have to do to get in? I thought that was a great University. Now that - that this podcast is required -
Carlton Cuse: It is a very good University.
Damon Lindelof: Well -
Carlton Cuse: You know -
Damon Lindelof: Alright, "buzzbee".
Carlton Cuse: Okay, let's talk about "Not in Portland." What did you like about last night's episode, Damon?
Damon Lindelof: Well, Carlton, uh, I liked *so* many things, most importantly I think Elizabeth Mitchell is just awesome on the show. Um, you know, it's so hard to bring a new character in, and you know, as we experienced last season with bringing in the Tailies, it you know uh the fans are so proprietary about the original survivors of flight 815, it - it's always really a challenge to you know get them to sort of bond uh up with someone new and - and I really feel Elizabeth has been such an amazing addition to the cast and, it's very complicated for her to play an Other that we *like* um and - and especially in the wake of Michael Emerson, who's just astonishing. I just think she's really come into her own and you know, I- I- I'm just really, really stoked about Juliet.
Carlton Cuse: Excellent, well I, I, ditto all of your sentiments and I just uh - I don't think I can really add anything to that. However I do see here that Kris, our producer, has asked us to talk about Juliet's back story, and how her specialty in fertilization potentially plays into the Other's mission. Um, does that mean they were cleaning that, clearing that big um swath for crops if she's an expert in fertilization?
Damon Lindelof: I think so, and I - you know, and I think that, you know there's some sort of -
Carlton Cuse: What kind of fertilization were you hoping that she was -
Damon Lindelof: Yeah Kris?
Carlton Cuse: specializing, in Kris?
Damon Lindelof: What are you talking about?
Carlton Cuse: Have you watched the show, Kris?
Damon Lindelof: Some sort of manure expert? [laughter] All right.
Carlton Cuse: All right.
Damon Lindelof: Kris actually laughs at our jokes and makes us feel good about ourselves and when we're - when you sit at home talking about how corny we are.
Carlton Cuse: So Kate and uh - Kate and Sawyer escape from the island. Thank God! Are we *done* with that frickin island? Are we *done* with the Hydra station? Are we *done* with Alcatraz? Are we getting *back* to our main island? I mean, are - please, what about the people on the beach, Damon?
Damon Lindelof: I would basically say that -
Carlton Cuse: Enough!
Damon Lindelof: I would say that in the - in the - in the *prehash* of next week's episode we will not be anywhere *near* Alcatraz Island. Um -
Carlton Cuse: Thank God.
Damon Lindelof: The entire story does not take place anywhere near there. But there is one more episode, *yes*. That basically, cuz, we - Jack got left behind, so, you know, you gotta sorta -
Carlton Cuse: Deal with him.
Damon Lindelof: We sort of have to wrap up what are the ram- what are the after effects of Juliet shooting um you know uh our our our friend Mr. Bowen.
Carlton Cuse: But that's not next week, that's gonna be the week after next.
Damon Lindelof: Yes.
Carlton Cuse: Next week, we will actually be originating on the beach.
Damon Lindelof: So I just did like a pre-pre-hash.
Carlton Cuse: That was a pre-pre-hash. That was an episode nine pre-hash.
Damon Lindelof: The word, again, is "buzzbee" [laughing] "Buzzbee."
Carlton Cuse: In case you jumped in late.
Damon Lindelof: Okay now here's the thing guys. If you were just listening to the beginning of the podcast, and you think that you are gonna get by on the magic word being "buzzbee" we are changing the magic word - to "Frodo". The new magic word is "Frodo".
Carlton Cuse: Yeah so, people who listened to the beginning and shut it off, [Damon laughs] and went to hang out at like the Tuffs - Tufts Pub.
Damon Lindelof: The *Quad*? [laughter] Is that where you hang out at college, the *Tufts Quad*?
Carlton Cuse: [laughs]
Damon Lindelof: Now, now the, the new magic word is "Frodo".
Carlton Cuse: "Frodo."
Damon Lindelof: But, Anyway, yeah so, we are leaving Alcatraz Island, um and and and where might the Others bring Jack, um Carlton?
Carlton Cuse: Uh -
Damon Lindelof: Have we seen them living anywhere else?
Carlton Cuse: They have a Holiday Inn across the ridge [laughter] towards the tail section crash site.
Damon Lindelof: That's fantastic, with clean towels.
Carlton Cuse: That's fantastic. Um -
Damon Lindelof: Um -
Carlton Cuse: What about Alex and Karl?
Damon Lindelof: Um-
Carlton Cuse: And what was with those crazy glasses?
Damon Lindelof: Those glasses - you can own a pair of those glasses for nine thousand -
Carlton Cuse: Why are you -
Damon Lindelof: - dollars.
Carlton Cuse: Why are you wearing them right now? [laughing]
Damon Lindelof: I like to put them on, I think they're flashy, and uh -
Carlton Cuse: Are you gonna sing an Elton John song?
Damon Lindelof: I am. I am gonna sing an Elton John song. I'm gonna dress up like a big duck. When I do -
Carlton Cuse: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road?
Damon Lindelof: That's what he does.
Carlton Cuse: That's fantastic.
Damon Lindelof: I think those glasses uh - I credit to Stephen Williams, who is the director of this episode -
Carlton Cuse: Yeah -
Damon Lindelof: Basically, every once in a while as producers we will get back dailies, or or see a show, and we'll see something like that in it, and have no idea that it was coming, and that - that is a, you know, pun intended, part of Stephen's unique vision. Uh I don't know what those glasses are all about, but I guess when you're watching that screen through them, it's even trippier than uh - than normal. What was goin on in that screen? It feels like there are a lot of little Easter eggs buried there -
Carlton Cuse: There is, there is, there is, there's a pretty good Easter egg, you know, there's an anagram in episode seven that is an important clue about something that will -
Damon Lindelof: I'm sure everybody's figured it out by now, it's the Mittelos -
Carlton Cuse: Mittelos.
Damon Lindelof: You know.
Carlton Cuse: Lost time.
Damon Lindelof: Lost time.
Carlton Cuse: Lost time. I would think that would -
Damon Lindelof: As in -
Carlton Cuse: - be important -
Damon Lindelof: As in, you lost time between the hours of ten and eleven p.m. watching the show last week.
Carlton Cuse: [laughter] I thought you were losing time *now*.
Damon Lindelof: Oh!
Carlton Cuse: Listening to this podcast.
Damon Lindelof: That is also another well -
Carlton Cuse: But if you're driving in traffic somewhere and listening to it, then it's probably okay.
Damon Lindelof: The fact that someone is getting college credit, for listening to this - is it?
Carlton Cuse: It's the greatest thing ever.
Damon Lindelof: Is it not the end of days? Are the four horsemen not pounding down on us right now? [Carlton laughing] How can this possibly be occurring?
Carlton Cuse: I think these guys deserve full tenure at any University in America.
Damon Lindelof: Hey! It's time for questions!
Carlton Cuse: Time for your fan questions, cue the music, Kris!
[Fan question Theme music]
Damon Lindelof: Dun dun dun dun
Carlton Cuse: OK Damon, I'm starting right in, this is from -
Damon Lindelof: Alright.
Carlton Cuse: - justblaze05. Lot of posts, 315 posts
Damon Lindelof: Wow.
Carlton Cuse: - in the the last ninety days, which is - considering we haven't been on in the last ninety days, that's a lot of posts. Hi Damon, Hi Carlton, is there a chance that we can write an application for an extra in 'you' series? I think the biggest moment in life of a Lost fan is: to run 'tru' the screen during transmission. Wouldn't that be nice?
Damon Lindelof: Well, [laughing] um, [laughing] [talking like robot] I know how answer... question.
Carlton Cuse: [Robot voice] You can run -
Damon Lindelof: Yeah.
Carlton Cuse: - through this transmission, uh, right now, if you like.
Damon Lindelof: Yes it would be great to be an extra on Lost or, or to be someone running around in the background, but as our friends Nikki and Paulo have already proven to us -
Carlton Cuse: Prepare -
Damon Lindelof: Prepare yourself -
Carlton Cuse: Prepare yourself for a lot of criticism.
Damon Lindelof: - to be completely hated by everybody and their mother.
Damon Lindelof: D&C where's the podcast? This is from ilikelocke who has 247 posts in the last ninety days.
Carlton Cuse: Well, justblaze05 had 315... [laughs]
Damon Lindelof: Um. So -
Carlton Cuse: Don't post that many times or we'll think you're crazy.
Damon Lindelof: They're basically huge podcast fans and to paraphrase the first part of their email, they, they basically are saying that they, they love the podcast, they missed it over the three month hiatus and, I feel like a plane lost over the Pacific being torn apart. Um, I miss you guys.
Carlton Cuse: [Fake crying] Thank you so much.
Damon Lindelof: You make the show twice as much to - fun to watch. I su-suggest ilikelocke applies to Tufts immediately. P.S. Here we go: If you're too busy trying to decide, just write Paulo's death and make it a quick one. That way, you'll have plenty of time to get back into the office for a podcast. In fact, we don't even need to *see* how he dies. Just let us know if he *did* die. Here's an example of dialogue, feel free to use it word for word. [laughter] So you might want to take out a pen.
Carlton Cuse: Okay I'm getting my pen, hold on, I'll write it down.
Damon Lindelof: Locke - Locke says, "is everyone who is going with us to get Jack, Kate, and Sawyer ready?" Hurley, Charlie, Desmond, Sayid and Nikki all nods their heads. Then Hurley says, "Hey Nikki, where's your boyfriend?" Nikki goes, "Who?" and Charlie says "Paco, or Pablo, or whatever his name is." Nikki says "Oh, he died yesterday, let's go."
Carlton Cuse: Awesome!
Damon Lindelof: There! I already wrote it for you, now get podcasting!
Carlton Cuse: Awesome. That is fantastic. There's no question there, but it was still fantastic.
Damon Lindelof: No, I - it was just a suggestion, and I felt since you se - segued so nicely that -
Carlton Cuse: I love - I love Paulo though.
Damon Lindelof: I think you're -
Carlton Cuse: I'll be really sorry to see him die off screen.
Damon Lindelof: I think you're gonna be feeling really, really sorry about what you said about Paulo
Carlton Cuse: You'll be sad, you'll be sad. And uh, but no, Nikki and Paulo are, they're, they get a lot, they get a lot of play in an upcoming episode, so -
Damon Lindelof: Thank God.
Carlton Cuse: Yes, I know. It's been, it's - and you'll be, you'll be, you will, you'll change your mind.
Damon Lindelof: Carlton is guaranteeing right now, that you will change your mind -
Carlton Cuse: I guarantee you.
Damon Lindelof: - about Nikki and Paulo
Carlton Cuse: Right now, I will change your mind. No money involved.
Damon Lindelof: Or your money back.
Carlton Cuse: But there is no money involved. Okay Damon.
Damon Lindelof: Yes.
Carlton Cuse: This is from musiclostlife.
Damon Lindelof: 'What?
Carlton Cuse: The heading is "zoology".
Damon Lindelof: Okay.
Carlton Cuse: The animals on Lost seem to be very important. The polar bears, which... appeared to be created by Walt, the bird in the second - in the season finale of season two that said Hurley's name.
Damon Lindelof: Mmm hmm.
Carlton Cuse: The shark that has been stamped with the Dharma Initiative.
Damon Lindelof: Mmm hmm.
Carlton Cuse: And then in your podcast you said something about the Hydra station. Will the animals have an important role in the third season?
Damon Lindelof: Uh, well, you - I guess? We've already seen the polar bear again in season three and, you know, the Hydra station is basically a zoological station where it - where it would appear they've done all sorts of experiments on animals, we know that the - where Jack was staying was an, an aquarium where they worked on dolphins, and -
Carlton Cuse: And Sawyer was in a polar bear cage.
Damon Lindelof: That's right.
Carlton Cuse: We know that.
Damon Lindelof: That's absolutely true.
Carlton Cuse: So, maybe, when the Dharma Initiative blew out of there, then maybe that polar bear got away.
Damon Lindelof: What other kind of animals do you think were there?
Carlton Cuse: Uhh.
Damon Lindelof: That we haven't even seen yet?
Carlton Cuse: Um. Maybe a?
Damon Lindelof: Mapinguari?
Carlton Cuse: Mapinguari, yeah.
Damon Lindelof: Wow.
Carlton Cuse: You think they would have a mapinguari? That's a, that's - that would be an unusual discovery -
Damon Lindelof: I bet you most people don't even know what a mapinguari is.
Carlton Cuse: But they will go look that up.
Damon Lindelof: How do y... I don't even think...
Carlton Cuse: People wanna know what a mapinguari-
Damon Lindelof: How do you spell a "mapinguari"?
Carlton Cuse: I don't know how to spell a "mapinguari". But it's a, an -
Damon Lindelof: I think it's m-a-p-a-n-g-u-a-r-i. [the wrong spelling]
Carlton Cuse: So maybe you do -
Damon Lindelof: Mapinguari.
Carlton Cuse: - know how to spell.
Damon Lindelof: That's how I would spell it.
Carlton Cuse: Right.
Damon Lindelof: If I were doing a google search.
Carlton Cuse: Alright. Also finches.
Damon Lindelof: Those are birds -
Carlton Cuse: Dharma finches.
Damon Lindelof: - though right?
Carlton Cuse: Yes, there were, there were Dharma finches.
Damon Lindelof: Wow. [sarcastically] I can't wait to see them. Uhhhh...
Carlton Cuse: Hey Tufts guy! The new word: "Dharma Finch".
Damon Lindelof: "Dharma finch". [laughter] Heh. Or a, a Tufts gal too. Well.
Carlton Cuse: Tufts gals. Well I meant guys in the guy/gal vernacular -
Damon Lindelof: If Alex is Ben's biological daughter then, from juliemanny, 579 post in the last ninety days.
Carlton Cuse: Oh geez. [laughing]
Damon Lindelof: That's new record. Um, so, if Alex is Ben's biological daughter then, not all the Others are sterile. That would *debunk* the theory that the survivors chosen were taken by the Others because they can't have their own. It would also lead one to question why they need a fertility doctor like Juliet. So -
Carlton Cuse: So what was the question?
Damon Lindelof: The question, I guess is, is Alex Ben's biological daughter?
Carlton Cuse: Uhh - Well I think that, it's clear that Alex is Ben's daughter, but I don't know that it's been made clear that she is his biological daughter, it would be very odd -
Damon Lindelof: I fact -
Carlton Cuse: - wouldn't it?
Damon Lindelof: It would be odd because, or it would be very coincidental because I think there's *somebody* around, running around on the island who says that *their* daughter was named Alex.
Carlton Cuse: Uh, the crazy woman who says she's French but is actually has a middle European accent?
Damon Lindelof: That might be the right person, so I would sort of -
Carlton Cuse: Why did everybody think that she was the French woman? I mean why don't they say, why, why don't they call her the Serbian woman?
Damon Lindelof: Cause she's speaking French on that uh, on the, on the broadcast on the original pilot. So -
Carlton Cuse: So when you speak French, uh over breakfast, should I call you "the French man"?
Damon Lindelof: Nah, just call me Damon.
Carlton Cuse: Okay. Alright. Damon?
Damon Lindelof: Yes sir.
Carlton Cuse: Damon and Carlton. [laughter] This is posted by sookydays. 79 posts.
Damon Lindelof: Okay.
Carlton Cuse: In the last ninety days.
Damon Lindelof: Mmm hmm.
Carlton Cuse: Damon and Carlton. Sexier than Jack or Sawyer.
Damon Lindelof: Woah!
Carlton Cuse: That's not my question, just my statement. You two know how we women have those dreams about Jack and Sawyer? Well, I've been having them about you two, since the first videocast, go figure. [phone ringing] Ummm. My question - was that Desmond in the foreground of the shot when Michael was brought into the faux Others encampment? Please keep up the good work. I've adored Lost from the very beginning, and will continue to watch through the seasons of the zombies.
Damon Lindelof: Well, sir!
Carlton Cuse: [laughs]
Damon Lindelof: Thank you, thank you very much for your kind words about Carlton and I [Carlton continues to laugh], uh they were very flattering. That was *not* Desmond. Uh, it was an extra, who probably looked a great deal like Desmond. And, uh, that's really the only way I can answer it. Again, I'm blushing right now. Thank you sir, for, for for that, for those kind words. And I, I have one more question for you, Carlton.
Carlton Cuse: Okay.
Damon Lindelof: Um. Uh, eye candy red heads, not so serious, I think it's time, by curiousgeorge66nbz, just one post and this is it. So i feel that we should honor curiousgeorge -
Carlton Cuse: That's good, awesome.
Damon Lindelof: I think that this is one of the most important issues that ever will be. Why are there not more red heads on Lost? Red heads are great. [Carlton snickers] There are already tons of hot women on Lost, why not red heads? Another question, why is it that this show is in it's third season and we're only on our first sex scene? And I don't count that Sayid one *by far*. If I were on a deserted mysterious island with hot women that would be *all* I would try to do.
Carlton Cuse: The question is, would they be wanting to do that with him?
Damon Lindelof: I kind of want to know why Sayid doesn't count. Sayid -
Carlton Cuse: Sayid![laughing]
Damon Lindelof: Sayid had sex! Sayid and Shannon had sex, why does that not count?
Carlton Cuse: And, and Sun and Jin had sex, too.
Damon Lindelof: And Bernard and Rose.
Carlton Cuse: And Bernard and Rose had a lot of sex. We haven't shown that yet. [laughing]
Damon Lindelof: I think you can eliminate the word "yet" from that sentence and just sort of say it's -
Carlton Cuse: Figure, that's not happening!
Damon Lindelof: They're lovely people, but...
Carlton Cuse: You know, we, we have, there's been an evolution in season three of the show and that evolution is very significant, and that evolution is this: when characters have sex on Lost, they *don't* necessarily die. That is a big advancement in the story telling that we, we actually had a revelation over, over breakfast one morning. It was like, hey Damon, what if we actually had characters have sex on this show and they didn't die?
Damon Lindelof: Yet.
Carlton Cuse: Yet.
Damon Lindelof: Yet, I said, [Carlton laughs] that's a, that's definitely a step in the right direction. Uh...
Carlton Cuse: Oh, that's very good
Damon Lindelof: But uh okay, well. I guess this sort of -
Carlton Cuse: Yes, well we'll, we'll try to have some red head sex, um, maybe the zombie season would be a good time to have some red head sex.
Damon Lindelof: Yeah, I guess, that's a good time to bring red heads on to the show.
Carlton Cuse: Yes.
Damon Lindelof: Red head zombies.
Carlton Cuse: Redhead, Redheaded Zombies, that's, that could be my band name.
Damon Lindelof: So what's up next week, "Flashes Before Your Eyes"?
Carlton Cuse: "Flashes Before Your Eyes", that, that's the Desmond story isn't it?
Damon Lindelof: Uh, that's what I hear, that's the sort of rumor uh going around and, and I can only imagine based on the uh, the promo from uh, from the, the end of "Not In Portland" that some significant uh answers are gonna come out about as to what happened to Desmond after he turned that fail safe key.
Carlton Cuse: Yeah, that would be cool. I would like to know, you know, what happened.
Damon Lindelof: You would?
Carlton Cuse: Yeah, we would learn how he ended up, you know, naked in the jungle, like how the hatch blew his clothes off.
Damon Lindelof: Well, [Carlton laughs] I'd still like to know how *you* ended up naked in the jungle the last time we went down to Hawaii, but that is a story for another podcast.
Carlton Cuse: You know.
Damon Lindelof: And something sookyman would, or, or whatever his name is, would probably like to hear.
Carlton Cuse: That is a woman -
Damon Lindelof: By the way -
Carlton Cuse: I'm sorry.
Damon Lindelof: The final, the final magic word is "sooky". [Carlton laughs] "Ssssssooky". Is the final the - for those of you who have made it to the end of the podcast, that is Tufts Students, "Sooky" is the word.
Carlton Cuse: Okay, "soooky".
Damon Lindelof: "Sooky".
Carlton Cuse: Well on that note I think we should say [Damon laughs], aloha.
Damon Lindelof: Aloha, mahalo.
Carlton Cuse: And uh -
Damon Lindelof: And we'll, and. we'll talk to you next week, it's so nice to be back.
Carlton Cuse: Peace out
Damon Lindelof: Later Carlton.
Carlton Cuse: Bye Damon. [Damon laughs]
