- Jack sarcastically asks Locke “So, what’s done is done?”. The phrase, again, fits with the “moving on” theme of the show. What happened, happened, and there’s no way to change the past. The same line gets repeated several times by characters such as Yemi (?) and Sawyer (The Little Prince, The Incident).
Uncle Doug (to Sawyer): “Listen to me, Jimmy. I know you’re angry at the man that did this to your momma and daddy. And hell, you got every right to be. But you gotta move on, boy. They’re gone, and there ain’t nothing you can do to change that. What’s done is done.” (The Incident)
- Jack mentions his visit to Thailand for the first time. Sawyer notes that he probably got his tattoos there. Doesn’t that sound like a fascinating story? Jack seems to be (understandably) ashamed to tell it to Sawyer, but we will get to see it in Stranger In A Strange Land.
- Hurley jokes that “Jack and Sawyer are finally gonna beat each other up”. That won’t happen until The Incident, coincidentally, after a slight disagreement about the whole “what’s done is done” thing.
- Jack tells Sawyer “When I need the guns, I’ll get the guns”. He’ll live up to his word in Two For The Road and force Sawyer to give up the guns using Ana-Lucia’s own weapon.
- I mentioned Jack’s decision to lie to Kate in my post for The Whole Truth. Jack has proven himself to be a great liar now. In this episode, Jack still doesn’t seem to trust Kate with the Henry Gale secret – all still a result of their confusing kiss in What Kate Did. Instead, he tells her a story about busted plumbings to keep her away from the Swan station… And yet, it seems that Jack is starting to warm up to Kate again when he offers to walk her back to the beach.
- Kate voices her frustrations about not being “in the loop” to Jack in S.O.S.. To be fair, she never told Jack about the Staff station either.
