"I'm willing to bet you that if Jacob went to that trouble, that he brought me to this island for a reason, and that is not to blow up sitting next to you right now."
"What lies in the shadow of the statue?"
"In case you didn't notice? I'm a pilot."
"I don't have to prove anything to you, Richard. You can either come with me or you can keep trying to blow stuff up. Your call, dude."
"Time to talk."
"Boys! We got some late arrivals!"
"I have something you need to see. Open it up."
"I would have treated you with respect. Come with me and I promise, I'll tell you everything."
"People rarely get a second chance."
"Hello, Richard. Nice to see you out of those chains."
"For some reason, he wanted me to know that he had been watching me ever since I was a kid."
"She said you have to stop the Man in Black. You have to stop him from leaving the island. Because if you don't? We all go to hell."
"You want to destroy the plane? How are we supposed to get off the island?!?"
