Back in Paris, Sami tries to beat a confession out of Sayid. Amira stops him and talks to Sayid alone. She holds a cat and explains that she rescued the cat from being tortured by the neighbor hood kids. The cat helped her overcome her own fears. But every once in a while the cat would bite her because he has forgotten that he is safe now. So she forgives the cat because she knows what it's like to never feel safe and that's because of Sayid. She asks Sayid for the respect of acknowledging what he did to her. Sayid breaks down and finally apologizes. Surprisingly, Amira forgives him. She lets him go but makes him promise never to return to Paris again.
At the beach camp, everyone votes for Hurley to play against Sawyer, and the match is on. But to Sawyer's shock, Hurley is a great ping pong player. Better than Sawyer. And Sawyer quickly finds himself hustled. As Sawyer is about to call him a nickname in protest, Hurley reminds him nuh uh, no nicknames for a week.
