"So, tell me, John. How do you expect to pilot our submarine? I mean, it's a complicated piece of machinery. You don't just press 'submerge.'"They need to know they can leave if they want to, and the submarine maintains that illusion. And if Locke stops and thinks, Ben can show him things he wants to see very badly. Then Ben offers to explain it in a way Locke will understand. He tells Locke to picture a box. Locke knows something about boxes, doesn't he? Somewhere on the island is a large box, and whatever you imagined, whatever you wanted, would be inside the box. Locke makes a joke about it, and calls Ben a hypocrite. If Ben knew what the island really was, he'd have more respect for it.
"We have two giant hamsters running in a massive wheel in our secret underground lair."
"I don't know how it happened... but you seem to have some communion with this island, John. And that makes you very, very important."On the island, Ben leads Locke down a hallway, telling him that for whatever reason Locke's in communion with the island. And that makes Locke very, very important. They stop at a door, and Ben opens it. Locke goes white with shock. Inside the room tied to a chair, gagged, and looking terrified is Locke's dad.
