The End Quotable Quotes
Look for these quotes in The End Full Recap to see where and when they happened.

  • Hurley about Jacob not saying much: "That's kind of true, dude, he's worse than Yoda,"
  • Sawyer: "You all head to the heart of the island and I'll go get the magic leprechaun out of that well."
  • Hurley about Kate and Jack: "This would be so sweet if we weren't all about to die."
  • Man in Locke to Ben: "Once we get Desmond to do what we need him to do, I'm going to sail away from this Godforsaken place and watch it sink."
  • Miles explaining to Richard what happened: "You thought it'd be a good idea to talk to the black smoke. He responded by throwing you into the damn jungle."
  • Jack to Locke before Locke's surgery: "Well, there's always the chance that I could kill you, but I'm trying to make you feel better."
  • Frank: "In case you haven't noticed, I'm a pilot."
  • Man in Locke to Jack: "Jacob being who he is, I expected to be a little more surprised. You're sort of the obvious choice, don't you think?"
  • Jack to Man in Locke: "You're not John Locke. You disrespect his memory by wearing his face, but you're nothing like him. Turns out he was right about most everything. I just wish I would have told him that when he was still alive."

  • Man in Locke to Jack: "He wasn't right about anything, Jack, and when this island drops into the ocean and you drop with it, you're finally going to realize that."

  • Man in Locke to Jack: "It looks like you were wrong."

  • Jack to Man in Locke: "Looks like you were wrong, too."

  • Man in Locke to Jack: "I want you to know, Jack, you died for nothing!"

  • Kate to Man in Locke after shooting him: "I saved you a bullet!"

  • Locke: "Jack, I hope that somebody does for you what you just did for me."

  • Ben: "If the island is going down, I'm going down with it."

  • Miles: "I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape."

  • Juliet to Sawyer when he's got his hand up the vending machine: "Maybe you should read the machine it's rights."
