LOST Caption: Cindy's Scarf

For this special bonus edition of the LOST Photo Caption, we go back to Season Three's climactic chapter, "The Brig". The Others have left Bennsylvania in order to trek their way to a place called the Temple - with John Locke tagging along as part of his perpetual quest to find some purpose in his life. However, there's one thing Locke must be able to do in order to gain the acceptance of his new family - accessorize.

He could certainly take a few pointers from Cindy. She's the Oceanic 815 flight attendant who survived the crash among the tailies - only to be kidnapped and recruited by the Others. In this scene, Cindy makes a fall fashion statement with her bold choice of seasonal colors - complimented by this elegant yet practical scarf, and a matching pair of child kidnap victims.

Post your captions, or any other LOST ramblings in the comments area below. And as always, Cindy's Scarf comments are certainly welcome. Namaste!

cindys scarf

Cindy was driving home one night in her convertible when a state trooper pulled alongside her car on the highway.

As the officer glanced at Cindy's car, he was stunned to see that the driver behind the wheel was knitting!

Cindy was oblivious to sirens and flashing lights, so the trooper lowered his window, and yelled into his bullhorn, "PULL OVER!"

"NO!" Cindy shouted back to the officer, "IT'S A SCARF!"

Cindy (thought bubble): God, Ben's whole "I have a crush on you so I'm going to give you a hard time" thing is soooo middle school. Why doesn't he just tell Locke how he feels? Hrm... I wonder if Jacob is cool with same-sex marriages...

Next time, on LOST:

CINDY'S SCARF: Your trial period is over. You are not worthy of this island. I will now squeeze the Otherness out of you.

CINDY: No wait, please, it was just one time! One time!! I was in the jungle...I had to were all I had!

CINDY'S SCARF: That's no excuse! You could've found a big leaf or even some tree bark. But you chose to use me! (SQUEEZING...TIGHTER...TIGHTER)


(Ordered from the J. Peterman catalog...classic Mr. Slocum, classic.)

(Oops, sorry vacc...was it you I should've credited for the J. Peterman comment?)

Bad news..potential spoiler...

I just read on CNN that the Scarf was just jailed for DUI in Hawaii. Looks as if it could get the boot soon.

Zach/Emma: (thought bubble)
"Oh no... you didn't just call her a 'Stewardess'?"

Cindy: (thought bubble)
"Oh no you didn't just call me a 'Stewardess'!" (SNAP)

Scarfy: (thought bubble)
"FINALLY... someone got it right! A flight attendant wouldn't wear me on a bet. Only a stewardess gets my fashion sense."

"And now we're on the way to Temple? Who knew the Others were Jewish?"

CINDY: I'm glad you guys finally decided to join us out here.

EMMA: We had to come out. It was "two in tents" in there.

The new film from Bad Robot Productions featuring

Zach, as the mysterious young preacher-boy, ISAAC

Emma, as his right-hand enforcer, MALACHAI

With special appearance by The Monster as

All the children: Praise Jacob, praise the island!

Isaac: Behold, a dream did come to me in the night and the island did show all this to me. In the dream, the island did come to me. He was a shape, it was He Who Smokes Behind the Jungle, and I did fall on my knees in terror, and hide my eyes that the fearfulness of his face strike me dead, and he told me all that has since happened. He said Ben has taken his things and fled this happy place because the worship of me is no longer upon him, so take you his life and spill his blood. I brought you upon this earth, but let not the flesh pollute the Scarf, cast him instead upon the Smoke!

Malachai: And so it was done, Ben was cast out!

Isaac: And He Who Smokes Behind the Jungle did say, I will send outlanders among you, a whole plane-load, and these be unbelievers and profaners of the holy, and a child they will bear and they shall call him Aaron, and he has great power, even greater than that of the Taller Walt!

All the children: The Taller Walt! Yes, the Taller Ghost Walt!

Isaac: And one named Locke will appear, and he will claim a connection to the island, but he is weak and his followers shall fail. And they shall steal the Aaron from us, and destruction shall come to the unbelievers!

Isaac: What Hath the island commandeth?

Malachai: Make sacrifice unto Jacob! Bring him the blood of the outlanders!

All the children:
Praise Jacob, praise the island!
Praise Jacob, praise the island!
Praise Jacob, praise the island!

This Film Now Shown Exclusively On Flight 815

Rex Reed says “Scarf-tastic and scary as hell! Cindy steals the show, as a walking clothes hanger!”

Cindy's Scarf (=D): Hey kid... stay here or else I'll get around your neck and snap it.

Cindy: Did you say something Emma?

Emma: No, it was your scarf.

Cindy: I know! Isn't it GORGEOUS. It says "I make you look pretty darn pretty" to me too!

Zach: (Laughs)

Cindy: What's so funny, punk?

Zach: Your scarf told me it was going to snap my neck... I don't believe it.

(Cindy's scarf snaps Cindy's neck)...
(Cindy's scarf gets around Zach)

Cindy's Scarf (to Zach): Now you believe me?

Zach: Yes master. You make me look GORGEOUS.

Cindy's Scarf = Gorgeously =D (Evil?)

(question from off-camera)

Richard Alpert: "Zach, Emma, Cindy... you too Scarfy - anyone see Mr_Naysayer this evening? Ben is looking for him... he needs help with the new island joke book he is trying to write."

(cricket chirps)

Richard Alpert: "I'll take that as a no!"

Zach: (mumbles under his breath) "Bat Manuel."

Scarfy: "Yeeeeesssssss.....that's right....all three of you...continue to do as your told....and look the other way."

Cindy, Zach & Emma (all at once): "Anything you say."

Cindy: "We just want to know about the island and you said this is where you'd take us to learn."

Scarfy: "Yeeeesssssss....Ben may have is 'leader' Jacob...and his stupid cabin....but I hold the secret to the island."

Cindy, Zach & Emma (all at once): "We believe you."

Scarfy: "Now....when I say so...turn around and you'll see the true home of the island secret....The Tent of Doooooooom!!"

Cindy: "Just say when."

Scarfy: "A quick story first....A long time ago, I originated from that fine piece of cloth....oh crap, it disappeared again."

The Jack/Kate/Sawyer knot has gotten so long it has turned into clothing items. See: Ana Lucia man jeans and Locke: Sweaty T-Shirts.

It's much more difficult to come up with something scarf-ish for a specific pic.

Off-screen announcer: "Up next on the runway is Stewardess Cindy, wearing a Craphole Island-inspired scarf from Jacob's Closet, your island's local outlet store. Coupled with the dark skirt, worn down shoes, and disheveled hair, it makes a divine accessory for any occasion, whether you're making a trek to the temple or just going kidnapping in the jungle! Wearing it noose-style around the neck is the latest rage this season, unlike the Bea Klugh doo rag look of last year. And with affordable fashions like these, Cindy shows us you don't have to be loaded like Widmore to look great!"

... scarf from Jacob's Closet...
Oh - Oh! You said closet. Do we have screen captures from Bens' closet? I bet that would be a huge easteregg if we found a scarf, an ascot, even a bandana in Bens' secret closet. Maybe one drawer below the cash & passport drawer?

#22. Posted by: DocH at March 12, 2008 8:07 PM

I just Googled "Cindy's scarf". All sorts of weird things came up. People actually still knit to me! I thought they just came out of Ben's magic box.

#23. Posted by: meg at March 12, 2008 8:43 PM

(I just posted this on the other thread but probably should have posted it here.)

** NOT a Spoiler **
In an upcoming episode, the Losties discover another hatch with a new Dharma logo:


It is the "Scientific Clothing Accessories Research Foundation" hatch.

The orientation film mentions something about a missing article of clothing that has escaped and could be considered dangerous.

#24. Posted by: bcre8ve at March 13, 2008 12:53 AM

Now THAT'S funny bcre8ve! That's taking Cindy's Scarf to a whole new level. Thank you Mr_Naysayer for opening this pandscarfas box!

Shhhhh - (whispering) I just saw Red... Neck... Man... in his FAX room trying on scarves. Stay away from the FAX room!

#26. Posted by: BunnyLover at March 18, 2008 4:14 PM


Truly brilliant!

But would Christian Siriano find it "fierce" enough? I'm quite sure he'd bitch about the pedestrian pattern and sloppy tassles ... yes, I watch Project Runway ... can never get enough of Heidi (Seal, you are a lucky man).
