Adam: [On Stephen King's Carrie] It's not even literature, it's popcorn
Amelia: And why isn't it literature, Adam, I'm dying to know?
Adam: There's no metaphor. It's by-the-number religious hokem-pokem.
Amelia: No metaphor?
Adam: It's science fiction. Now I know why Ben isn't here.
Juliet: Excuse me?
Adam: I know the host picks the book but seriously, Julie, he wouldn't read this in the damn bathroom.
Juliet: Well, Adam, I am the host and I do pick the book, and this is my favorite book. So I am absolutely thrilled that you can't stand it.
[Amelia grins]
Juliet: Silly me for sinking so low as to select something that Ben wouldn't like. Here I am thinking that free will still actually exists on this...
[The room begins to shake violently]

Anthony Cooper: I'm a con man, not a murderer.

Ben: (about the heartrate monitor) If and when it beeps, you're gonna wanna relax yourself. Do some deep breathing. Some yoga.

Ben: (to the bunny) Hippity-hop, let's move it.

Ben: Do you believe in God?
Jack: Do you?
Ben: Two days after I found out that I had a fatal tumor on my spine, a spinal surgeon fell out of the sky. If that's not proof of God I don't know what is.

Ben: God, I hate needles.

Ben: Good morning. Let's go for a walk.

Ben: [referring to the handcuffs on the table] Sorry, I'm going to have to ask you to put those on, Kate.
Kate: And if I don't?
Ben: Then you don't get any coffee.

Ben: [Sees that Juliet holding the book, Carrie] So I guess I'm out of the book club.

Ben: A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody. It don't make no difference who the guy is, as long as he's with ya. I tell ya, I tell ya a guy gets too lonely and he gets sick.
Sawyer: What the hell are you talking about?
Ben: It's from Of Mice and Men. Don't you read?

Ben: Alex... this is your mother.

Ben: I know you think you need to do this John, but if you blow up my submarine, I'll have a big problem with my people.
Locke: Is that supposed to be an incentive not to blow it up?
Ben: I was born on this island; not many of my people can say that. Most of them were recruited and brought here, and as much as they love this place, as much as they would do anything to defend it, they need to know that they can leave if they want to. The sub maintains that illusion.
Locke: So you're lying to them?
Ben: No... they're here because they want to be here. Some of them are just not ready to make a full commitment yet. But you John, you've already made that commitment. And now you have a choice, because if you stop and think, I can show you things. things I know that you want to see very badly. Let me put it so you'll understand: picture a box. You know something about boxes, don't you John? What if I told you that somewhere on this island there is a very large box and whatever you imagined, whatever you wanted to be in it, when you open that box, there it would be. What would you say about that John?
Locke: I'd say that I hope that box is big enough for you to imagine up a new submarine.
Ben: Why are you so angry John?
Locke: Because you're cheating. You communicate with the outside world whenever you want to, you come and go as you please, you use electricity and running water and guns. You're a hypocrite. You don't deserve to be on this island. If you had any idea what this place was you wouldn't be putting chicken in your refrigerator.
Ben: You have been on this island for 80 days, John. I have been here my entire life. So what makes you think you know this island better than I do?
Locke: Because you're in the wheelchair, and I'm not.

Ben: Jack, I know you think you're saving your people, but you need to stop this.. It's a mistake.
Jack: Listening to you was the mistake.
Ben: This will be your last chance Jack. I'm telling you, making that call is the beginning of the end.

Ben: Not so long ago, Jack, I made a decision that took the lives of over forty people in a single day. I'm telling you this because history is about to repeat itself, right here, right now.
Jack: Let me guess you've got us surrounded and if I don't do what you say you're gonna, you're gonna kill all of my people?
Ben: No, Jack, you are.
Jack:[Laughs] And how am I going do that, Ben?
Ben: The woman you've been traveling with. The one who parachuted onto the island from that helicopter. She's not who she says she is.
Jack: She's not, huh?
Ben: No she's not.
Jack: Then who is she?
Ben: She's a representative of some people who've been trying to find this island, Jack. She's one of the bad guys.
Jack: Oh, I almost forgot, you're the, you're the good guys.
Ben: Jack listen to me. If you phone her boat, every single living person on this island will be killed. So here's what has to happen. Get that device, that phone she carries with her, and give it to me. I will turn around, we'll walk back to my people, you will turn around and walk back to your people.
Jack: I'm not going anywhere.
[Jack and Ben both stand up at the same time, staring each other down]
Ben: May I have my walkie talkie back?
Jack: What?
Ben: There's something you need to hear. Please?
[Jack gives it to him]
Ben: Tom are you there?
Tom: Yes I'm here.
Ben:[To Jack] Your plan killed seven of my people, but the ones you failed to kill are now holding your friends: Jin, Sayid, Bernard, at gunpoint.
Sayid: Jack, don't give him anything.
[Ryan hits Sayid]
Bernard: Leave him alone!
Ryan: I said shut up!
Jack: And what's to stop me from snapping your neck?
Ben: Tom unless you hear my voice in one minute, shoot all three of them.
Tom: Got it.
Ryan: I said don't move.
Ben: Bring me the phone, Jack.
Sayid: Don't negotiate with him-
Ben: Forty Five seconds.
Jack: No. I'm getting them all of the island. All of them!
Ben: Let me ask you something, Jack. Why do you wanna leave the Island? What is it that you so desperately want to get back to? You have no one. Your father's dead, your wife left you, moved on with another man. Can you just not wait to get back to the hospital? Get back to fixing things? It's twenty seconds now. Just get me the phone, Jack.
Jack: No.
Ben: Ten seconds. Bring me the phone.
Jack: No.
Ben: I'm not bluffing!
Jack: I WON'T DO IT!
Ben: Five. Four. Three.
Jack: No.
[Three shots are heard over the walkie talkie, Jack cringes with anguish]
Ben: I'm so sorry, Jack.
[Furious, Jack tackles Ben to the ground and beats him half to death. He then takes the walkie talkie]
Jack: Tom are you there?
Tom: Yeah, Jack, I hear ya.
Jack: I'm going to lead my people up to the radio tower. And I'm going to make a call and get them all rescued. Every one of them. And then I'm gonna come find you. And I'm gonna kill ya.

Ben: This is where I came from, John. These are my people. The DHARMA Initiative. They came here seeking harmony, but they couldn't even coexist with the Island's original inhabitants. And when it became clear that one side had to go, one side had to be purged, I did what I had to do. I was one of the people that was smart enough to make sure that I didn't end up in that ditch, which makes me considerably smarter than you, John.
[Ben shoots Locke and he falls in the mass grave]
Ben: What did Jacob say to you?
Locke: Why did you do this?
Ben: Because you heard him. Now I need to know what he said.
Locke: "Help me."
Ben: John, I'm not going to ask you again! What did he say to you?
Locke: He said... "help me."
[Ben looks troubled, and flinches for a moment]
Ben: Well I certainly hope he helps you, John.
