It is funny cause I feel the opposite after last night. The whole idea of training an army soured me on Jack but he redeemed himself somewhat in my eyes by standing up to Locke.


Yeah but Jack potentially put everyone's lives in danger (not allowing Locke to type in the numbers) just so that he can get inside the vault. I don't see how you can respect him for pulling that off.
I'd have less respect for him if he did nothing a let the guy be tortured.


Hmmm but he let Sawyer get his fingernails pulled when he assumed that Sawyer was hiding something. And I don't seem to recall Jack apologizing to him. :-?

He did and I don't think he apologized. He did say (I don't remember who to) that he wouldn't let it happen again.

Whether you agree with it or not I think it's important to note that Jack doesn't believe anything will happen. So from his perspective he wasn't putting anyone in danger. Jack isn't my favorite character but he does seem to be the one most grounded in reality. Aside from being a doctor, if I was in that situation I see myself being most like Jack. I also think the Jack is probably starting to have a nervous breakdown.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

It says that the "translation" comes from a Middle Eastern dictionary, but the only word I recognize there is dies. What is it supposed to say?
