Lost Caption: And Then There Were Six

In this monumental scene from "There's No Place Like Home - Part 1", the Oceanic Six are introduced to the entire world. This special edition of the LOST Photo Caption puts you right in the middle of this historic press conference.  Who's willing to step up and ask the right questions?  How will their cover story hold up?  Take your seat - on the podium - or among the press.  The world wants answers!


** Special Note **   While LOST has become an obsession for me and my family, there are still many things in my life that I care even more passionately about.  Here's one of them:  On Sunday June 1, I will be participating in a charity event - Walk Now For Autism.   I ask and encourage everyone to visit my Support a Walker page  - whether or not you are able to contribute or simply want to learn more.   As an added bonus, I will make an additional contribution of $20 in the name of the poster with the winning caption entry. I will be choosing the winning caption from among all entries submitted before the Season Finale airs on May 29. Thanks!(No purchase or contribution necessary to win. Enter as often as you wish. Neither vacc nor members of his immediate family are eligible to win. )


Let the press conference begin - post your captions, questions & answers, or other LOST ramblings in the comments area below this week's photo.  On behalf of the DeGroots, Alvar Hanso, and all of us here at the Lost Blog - thank you, Namasté, and good luck!

Kudos to Clementine...whew, that was a close one...maybe I should have another drink to celebrate...hehehe

#2. Posted by: meg at May 17, 2008 9:17 PM

@vacc: A cause near and dear to my own heart! Good luck on your fundraising!

Reporter: "Mr. Fox? What does it feel like to play the most irritating character on Lost?"

Matthew Fox: "I don't know what you're talking about. This show is my responsibility, and I promised these people I would make it a success. That's all there is to it."

Evangeline Lilly: "I think he's just trying to say, that sometimes you can be... you know, a little bit much."

Matthew Fox: "Who are you sleeping with? Is it Naveen? You're sleeping with Naveen, aren't you, Evie? Aren't you??!"

Jorge Garcia: "Dude, chill."

Matthew Fox: "I can't CHILL, Jorge! I have a press conference to get us through. I have responsibilities to these people. You wouldn't understand that, though, right? All you care about is Domino’s delivery schedule, RIGHT??"

Yunjin Kim: “Maybe we should wrap this up now.”

Matthew Fox: “Oh, I get it! It’s YOU that’s sleeping with Naveen! You’re doing him, aren’t you?? Right here on my own network television show, you’re cheating on me with some other actor!!”

Naveen Andrews (to the production aide): “Better call Damon and initiate the Secondary Protocol. Tell him, code name: Foxy”

Jorge Garcia (muttering to Yunjin): “I don’t get it. Why doesn’t he ever accuse me of sleeping with you? I could be sleeping with you, right?”

Yunjin Kim: “Uh... yeah... right.”

Matthew Fox (after being tasered, as studio security drags him out): “Speed Racer is golden, man! Don’t believe them, they’re all liars! The box office was HUGE! I’m the next Tom Cruise! I can sleep with any actress on the planet! I don’t need these *$@#$!”

Damon and Carlton arrive.

Cuse: “Tell security to shut down the hanger. We have to execute the protocol. Call Tim Kring and ask if we can borrow the Haitian again.”

Lindelof: “Dammit, I don’t care about the reporters, but we can’t keep erasing the cast's memories. They have lines to run tomorrow.”

Cuse: “Alright, you can ask him. But I warned you.”

Damon walks out the back door, across the studio lot, to the executive suite. He proceeds down a dark hallway, to the most remote office in the building. Outside the door sits an oil lamp and a book of matches. He lights the lamp and tentatively opens the door. Through the darkness, he can barely see an outline of a man in rocking chair.

Lindelof: “Sir, we have problem. Fox has gone off the reservation again. What should we do?”

The man in the chair leans forward, until just his face comes into the lamplight.

Lindelof: “You’re not Mr. Abrams! Who ARE you?”

Aaron Spelling: “I can speak for J.J., son. Now, what seems to be the problem?”

@mif/1 : Back where you belong!!!
@Clementine/3 : Thanks! That really means a lot!
@Clementine/4 : LMAO at that one! (still) Especially loved the shocking twist at the end!
(Good thing I disqualified myself because that will be hard to beat. But here goes... )
------------------

JACK: (backstage, one minute before the press conference) Alright everyone. There's absolutely nothing to worry about. We've rehearsed this over and over again. If you get stuck, just follow my lead. (The Oceanic Six are led to their seats)

REPORTERS: (All shouting at once)

MS. DECKER: Please! Everyone! If you'll just take your seats and hold your questions for a minute - the survivors would like to make a statement first.

CUE COVER STORY MUSIC

Jack:
"Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
Of the Oceanic Six"

Sayid:
"Our flight crashed in the ocean
And sank like a ton of bricks"

Sun:
"Though eight escaped from the sinking plane
Only Six survived"

Kate:
"Since Aaron wasn't born just yet,
That means three others died.. "

All: "Three others died.."

Hurley:
"The wreck was found in the Sunda Trench
Right off the Bali Coast"

Jack:
"If not for the courage of our hero Kate
We would all be LOST.. "

All: "We would all be LOST... "

Sayid:
"We washed up on the shore of some
Uncharted tropic Isle.."

All:
"Baby Aaron... Jack Shephard too...
A Millionaire... and Jin's wife...
The Fugitive... and a torturer from Iraq ...
We're the Oceanic Six!!"

"Mr. Shepard. Is there any truth to the rumor that Mr. Reyes ATE the other two survivor that made it off the plane?"

It's the Oceanic Six Carnival Game—if you hit all six of them, you'll win a giant stuffed panda!

Reporter: Jack, Barney Miller, KHNL Honolulu. You're not planning on drinking any tequila here before driving, are you?

#9. Posted by: Scooby-Dude at May 18, 2008 1:10 PM

Reporter: Mr. Shephard, now that you're back home, are you planning on changing the way you breathe?

(All) Reporters: Nodd heads, agreeing

Jack: Excuse me?

Reporter: You heard me, are you going to change the way you breathe?

Jack: Why would I change the way I breathe?

Reporter: Because it's the most annoying thing in the world!

Jack: Uh... are you asking me to kill myself?

Reporter: I suppose that would work. Hey, you said it, not me.

Ms. Decker: As interesting as this is, I think we should move on... Next question plese...

#10. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 18, 2008 2:44 PM

Oceanic Spokesperson to Reporter: "Yes, we think it is odd too that we only recovered the upper torsos of these passengers... apparently the predatory sharks in the Eastern Indian Ocean have discerning tastes."

#11. Posted by: MorBid0 at May 18, 2008 3:25 PM

@ ilovebenjaminlinusxx

I rewatched the pilot to see Ben's beat-down stick. All I could hear was Jack's heavy breathing. It creeped me out and I thought of you. Your right, it's weird.

#12. Posted by: DW at May 19, 2008 10:21 AM

Ms. Decker: Say hello to the Oceanic Six. Any questions?

Reporter # 1: So Dr. Shepard, how do you feel about vacc performing blogging duties in Mac's absence?

Jack Shepard: Well, I think he'll do a very credible job. He seems literate and technically-capable. I'm not too crazy about finding him in my shower…

Kate Austen: That goes double for me…

Shepard: …With a camera and tape recorder… But I think he'll do just fine.

Austen: The little perv.

Reporter # 2: Mr. Reyes, your thoughts on vacc?

Hugo Reyes: Yeah, dude, I like the little guy too. Not a lot of meat on him, but I think he'd cook up just fine.

Reporter # 2: You know you're not on the island anymore right? You don't have to eat people anymore…

Reyes: Dude, once you try vacc you never go back.

Sayid Jarah: Hurley, we talked about that…

Reporter # 3: Hurley? Is that a nickname you Sixers have for Mr. Reyes?

Sun-Hwa Kwon: Yes. He found some Ranch Dressing and ever since…well, you get the idea…

Reporter # 4: One last question - do any of you have any explanation why Oceanic 815 was found northwest of Australia when you were headed northeast to L.A.?

Ms. Decker: Ahh, good question. Now if there are no more questions…

Reporter # 4: But you didn't answer my last question…

Ms. Decker: Yes, very good. Now if I may point out that Sun and Kate are headed for the hot tub I think we can all move along…

End of Press Conference

#13. Posted by: ransomjackson at May 19, 2008 4:58 PM

hiya. never posted here before, but I love the blog. Anyway, here's my attempt.

Hurley: Uh, dudes, I just totally forgot my lines...
Kate: Well, Hurley, you have Jack to thank for that.

Sun: I thought we were supposed to be making this up as we go along?

Jack: Will you guys please shut up? I'm trying to find a way out of this mess.

Sayid (stroking beard): You do realize they can hear us, right?
Jack: Damn it. We should have stayed on the island.

#14. Posted by: smokey_lives at May 19, 2008 5:50 PM

Mr. Shephard ... who did your hair on the island? Or was your head shaved when you crashed?

#15. Posted by: ealgumby at May 19, 2008 8:17 PM

Ms. Austen ... have you contacted the proud father yet? Does little Aaron look as much like him as he does you?

#16. Posted by: ealgumby at May 19, 2008 8:26 PM

Mr. Reyes ... what are your thoughts upon learning your stock split at $4.08 upon news of your death, and now stands at $15.16 per share? Also, what do you make of the recent bids by Mr. Widmore and Mr. Paik to purchase 23% and 42% of your outstanding stock, respectively?

#17. Posted by: ealgumby at May 19, 2008 8:33 PM

Mr. Jarrah ... did you find your military training of any use in terms of survival on the island? Has any agency questioned you with regard to your possible involvement in bringing the plane down?

#18. Posted by: ealgumby at May 19, 2008 8:38 PM

Mr. Aaron ... (replies in voice of Stewey Griffin ... "yyesss?") ... what are your thoughts on your remarkable birth and rescue? (replies "This BITCH is NOT my mother, and soon you will all be groveling at my feet as OVERLORD of this pathetic little planet!")

#19. Posted by: ealgumby at May 19, 2008 8:44 PM

Ms. Kwon ... I understand you are with child, yet from medical records provided by an anonymous source, your husband was reportedly sterile ... do you have any comment? "Perhaps the mile-high club brought out the best in him."

#20. Posted by: ealgumby at May 19, 2008 8:53 PM

We still havent heard anything from the infant.

What was it like being born on the island?

I don't see Vincent as "Ren the Chihuahua".

Thank you DW! Finally someone notices it.

But it's the worst in "Through the Looking Glass"

#25. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 21, 2008 11:50 AM

I submit that Jack's irritating breathing is a character flaw that Matthew Fox has brought to Jack...it's ACTING! ilblxoxo, I challenge you to go watch the new Speed Racer movie and re-runs of Party of Five. You will see Matthew Fox breathing like a normal human being. (Now, I haven't done this myself...just a theory!)

#26. Posted by: JoePike at May 21, 2008 12:21 PM

Speaking of the O6 news converence...

Cuse & Lindeloff stated in the Podcast that the re-showing of Part 1 of There's No Place Like Home (before the 2 hour finale on Thursday...8-9pm eastern) will feature an EXPANDED news conference featuring more questions and answers. They implied that one of the questions we'll see this time has to do with who the other 'survivors' of the crash were along with the O6...since there were supposedly 8 total.

In all fairness, the poor man had just fallen 10,000 feet out of a disintegrating airplane into a bamboo forest, barely avoiding impalement, only to be awakened by a spooky dog who may or may not be a smoke monster, sent by his dead father, then runs a hundred yards toward the sound of screams to find his fellow passengers milling around a beach in various stages of injury.

I think I might pant a little, too.

#28. Posted by: Cecil Rose at May 21, 2008 12:27 PM

Cue the Christmas music:
Eight original Oceanic survivors...
Seven known Cylon models...
Six members of the Oceanic 6...
Five of them were already born (when the plane crashed)...
Four Cylon skin jobs in hiding...
Three-hour season finale...
Two seasons left to go...
One Cylon model up for grabs...

Oh crud, I'm mixing up my shows!
ANTL - Anyone Notice The Logo for Oceanic looks an awful lot like Kara Thrace's visions on BG?
It's all a Cylon plot!!!

(Especially since neither show is on this week and it's killing me to wait...)

#29. Posted by: jaybee at May 21, 2008 3:52 PM

(As the press confrence goes underway two reporters at the back have a discussion)

reporter 1: so... this is strange

reporter number 2: I know what you mean, how does a powerful asain chick, a fat mental hippy, some torturing pakistanie and an escaped convict go for that long on some of the coast island without killing that weired breathing, over the top doctor who even though he can finally get his hands on a shaving kit decides to keep the same amount of stubble!!!!!!!

reporter 1: erm... do you know these people by any chance.

reporter 2: No. But i was related to like 16 people on the flight. That was quite a coincidence

@ JoePike - 26
No. Matthew Fox just breathes weird. Even in Vantage Point! I was so annoyed!!! I went on opening night to see it, well mostly for him (even though I hate him), and it bothered me so much!!!

But it was a good movie. Especially becuase of what happened to Matthew Fox. =]

Hey! Spoiler warnings for non-"Lost" stuff, too. Some of us geezers wait for most movies to make it to cable.

Don't worry too much, by the time it comes around, I shall have forgotten this.

#33. Posted by: Cecil Rose at May 23, 2008 3:52 PM

Reporter: "Do any of you have a CLUE as to how you managed to survive a plane crash, dangerous seas, terrible storms and an extended stay on a deserted island?"

(they look at each other, shrug shoulders, look at the press, shrug shoulders... say nothing, but...)

Hurley thinks: Colonel Locke... in the Cabin... with the Knife.

Jack thinks: Professor Faraday... in the Tempest... with the Wrench.

Sun thinks: Sargeant Keamy... on the Freighter... with the Pistol.

Sayid thinks: Mister Linus... in the Desert... with the Lead Pipe.

Kate thinks: Miss Rousseau... in the Jungle... with the Rope.

Aaron thinks: ME! It was me man... think about it people! Baby Aaron... on the beach... with the Pant Load.

#34. Posted by: DocH at May 24, 2008 4:21 PM

PRESS - Mister Reyes. How is it that you maintained your rather substantial bulk for 3 months following the Oceanic crash?

HUGO - Ummm. Doctor Shephard may have misstated our plight somewhat. It wasn't a DESERT island...... it was a DESSERT island. Most of the newer Club Med's have them now in their main pools.

#35. Posted by: ANON2 at May 25, 2008 12:20 PM

I didn't say WHAT happened to him on purpose!!! I just said something did... that could mean anything.

I am sorry about that though.

#36. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 26, 2008 12:48 PM

Gosh, ilblxx, i usually agree with everything you say... but Vantage Point a good movie? i couldn't disagree with you more.

I actually really hated the ending. But the rest of it was good.

Oh, and you seriously usually agree with everything I say?

@ ilovebenjaminlinusxx - 39

well...MOST things. haha... i guess i shouldn't say everything, but i certainly enjoy reading your posts. plus, i love ben linus as well... as much as a straight man can! :)

#40. Posted by: DriveShaft at May 28, 2008 12:35 PM

oh, i guess i should respond about the movie... :P

yeah, as soon...... oh...


****SPOILER ALERT - for VANTAGE POINT... not LOST******

don't wanna ruin it for anyone if they still want to watch it. anyway, as soon as matthew fox told dennis quaid to "stay put" cause he doesn't want him to get the blame if they're wrong - when he said that and took off running, i knew he was a baddie. it just didn't seem very well written, cause everything was really obvious and fake. the ending sucked, i thought forest whittaker's character was really contrived, and by the 3rd or 4th 'whooooshing' back to the beginning of the day, i wanted to run out of the theatre... but i didn't, cause i wanted to see if the ending would save it. it didn't.


*****END VANTAGE POINT SPOILER*****

#41. Posted by: DriveShaft at May 28, 2008 12:42 PM

A real man admits his love to other men.

Ben is awesome... and very CALIENTE. I usually don't go for old guys, but phew. He is one cool old guy.

Haha, I'm just kidding... sorta.

This reminds me of "Their Eyes Were Watching God", since we're reading it in English right now, and we were watching the movie today, and I wanted to throw up because she was married to some old shriveled up dude.

... at least Ben isn't shriveled up.

But cool. Thanks for the compliment, I guess. I figured most people brush off most of the things I say.

******** VANTAGE POINT SPOILER*********

Yeah, I knew he was a "baddie" too, but I kind of liked that. Especially because of what happened to him. I knew that was coming on too. I think that's why I liked the movie, because of what happened to Matthew Fox and his breathing.

You're right, the wooshes did get really annoying after like the third one, but once again, I really hate Matthew Fox and the way he breathes, so yeah... I was satisfied with his fate.

After all... Destiny, is a fickle bitch.

... I just felt like saying that.

******END OF VANTAGE POINT SPOILER******

#42. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 28, 2008 4:01 PM

haha... alright, i'll go with you on matthew fox's fate (feels like i should write foxes...) i did however enjoy his appearance in "Smokin' Aces". but i feel that the film grossly failed to meet my expectations. but that happens.

but as far as Lost goes, i'm always a tad bit frustrated when the story follows Jack rather than Locke and Ben. Jack needs his appendix removed?! OH NO... don't care.

#43. Posted by: DriveShaft at May 28, 2008 4:30 PM

i should clarify - the film that failed to meet my expectations was VANTAGE POINT, not Smokin' Aces. i really need to review my thoughts before posting them...

#44. Posted by: DriveShaft at May 28, 2008 4:34 PM

Everyone's gotta admit, Ben flashback episodes are the best.

Jack's suck because he's a dumbass and he breathes weird.

I really can't stand him.

AND my friend is obsessed with him, so it gets even more annoying.

I said this before, Locke is a good guy. At times naive, but good. -- If I was paralyzed and then crashed on an island and became un-paralyzed, I'd love the island too! I'd probably even do everything that Locke did to prevent people from leaving.

Jack is just stupid. Words cannot describe his stupidity. Words can't even describe how much I hate him and want to bash him right now.

I hope Matthew Fox reads blogs about LOST. and happens to stumble upon this one and reads everything I write about him.

Are they allowed to do that?

I'm getting a little side tracked.

#45. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 28, 2008 5:22 PM

I just thought of another annoying thing that Jack does...

When he's trying to convince someone of something or talking/listening to someone, he tilts his head a little bit. Then when he's trying to "get something through" he says something like "no" then he tilts his head even more and says it again, like "no" with extra emphasis.

For example... when a father and a daughter came to get the dad's spinal tumor removed by Jack (the girl that Jack kissed), she asks him if he changed his mind, and he had his head tilted and he said "no", then he tilted it even more and said "no" again.

Another example... in "Maternity Leave" when Claire was trying to convince Jack that Aaron was sick and had an infection Jack told her that that was crazy and he'll be back to check on her in a few hours and then he says "okay?" then he tilts his head even more and says, "okay?".

I know that must have been confusing to read, but that's almost as bad as his breathing.

#46. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 28, 2008 5:33 PM

well, i must admit, you're a bit angrier than i am about the whole thing. haha... but that's okay.

i actually didn't notice his breathing until you pointed it out. the thing i noticed was his head bobbing. always bouncing up and down when he talked. annoyed the hell outta me. i don't like really like kate either... partly because she never can make up her mind (sawyers obviously the better choice!) and partly because i know things about evangeline...

but man, when henry gale was imprisoned in the hatch, i just knew i liked that guy. :)

i always used to wonder if famous people would search for blogs on shows they work on... i think if i were famous i would lurk a bit...

#47. Posted by: DriveShaft at May 28, 2008 5:35 PM

YES! His head bobbing bothers me too!!!

I've come to a conclusion...
CONCLUSION: Everything about Jack pisses the hell out of me.

=D (That deserved an evil smiley).

Right when Henry Gale was imprisoned in the hatch, I told my friend that I loved him. It was "love at first sight".

Then when he became Benjamin Linus, the love grew!!!

Ahhh, I love him.

I would lurk a bit too. I'd want to know if people hated the way I breathe.

MATTHEW FOX: If you're reading this, a piece of advice -- STOP BREATHING. =]

-------------------

I actually have a funny story about telling someone to "stop breathing".

I was in bio last year, and this kid that sat behind me breathe-ed (past tense of breathe, brothe? IDK!) like a flipping psychopathic freak. It was so annyoing... So one day I turned around and screamed in the middle of a test since I couldn't concentrate, "(His name) STOP BREATHING!!!!" My whole class stopped their test and looked at me, and my teacher stared at me like I was crazy, then everyone started laughing.

I had no idea how to explain myself.

What was I supposed to say, "His breathing is so annoying!!!"???

Only you guys would get that.

#48. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 28, 2008 5:58 PM

lol... that's a good story. i did something similar in a math exam... except the kid was sniffling. i yelled at him to go blow his nose. yes, i was being disruptive but i couldn't take it anymore!

by the way, the past tense of breathe is breathed. :)

#49. Posted by: DriveShaft at May 28, 2008 6:20 PM

I usually don't bash people that sniffle because if you don't have a tissue, what else are you supposed to do?

I guess if there are tissues there, and the only thing stopping one from getting a tissue is the math test, then that would be annoying... but maybe the person was pressured by time?

I usually get up right away and get a tissue, because when I sniffle, I not only distract everyone else, but I also distract myself.

I'm easily distracted. I have a very hard time focusing on something.

Breathing can get really annoying... more annoying than sniffling, in my opinion.

But you're right... If I was in the middle of a math test and I couldn't concentrate because someone's sniffling, I'd get up, get the tissue box and throw it at them.

#50. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 28, 2008 6:39 PM

Btw -- Thanks for the past tense. -- That was bothering me, but for some reason it doesn't sound right.

That's like the time I thought I was spelling "word" wrong because it looked wrong. I stared at it for a very long time and I had to ask someone if it was right because I was confusing myself.

#51. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 28, 2008 6:41 PM

I'm a bit strange...

#52. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 28, 2008 6:43 PM

that's okay, i don't much enjoy normal people.

how is high school these days? i miss that time of my life... my sister in law is graduating from high school this year... those were simpler times.

#53. Posted by: DriveShaft at May 28, 2008 6:46 PM

High school is boring. All my teachers decide to throw everything at us in the last few weeks.

SATs, ACTs, SAT 2's, AP tests, ugh. I hate it. I can't wait till next year. After college apps, all we have to worry about are AP's...

And I'll actually have time to hang out with my friends.

This year sucked.

If you haven't noticed, all I care about is LOST., and at the moment all I care about is being #700. Haha.

#54. Posted by: ilovebenjaminlinusxx at May 28, 2008 7:04 PM

Well, yes, i have noticed, actually. I've done about 5 or 6 messages since the 600 mark trying to push it up. Doing my part. :)

Seems to me we've somewhat monopolized this blog... oops.

I took a year off after high school, and i feel that it was a good move. i needed a break from school work. don't worry though, life begins after high school :) it gets much better afterwards.

#55. Posted by: DriveShaft at May 28, 2008 7:37 PM

Haha thanks for helping it getting closer to 700.

I'm afraid someone else is going to take it from me.

I'm bad at monopoly. I always lose.
I'm good at clue though!

I guess on this blog... I WIN!!! Yay!

I'm just excited for college. I'm aiming for NYU then Yale for Law school... hopefully. At this rate, that's probably never going to happen.

I guess you can say I'm a "overachiever"; except this year one of my classes brought my GPA down a little bit.

I like high school though... Junior year is just really boring. Freshmen and sophmore year were good. Next year is going to be awesome.

"Haha thanks for helping it getting closer to 700."

And just think, if the last 21 posts were on the other thread, you'd be that much closer! ;)

I must agree with both the "head tilt" and "head bob" observations though ... seems he's taking his acting cues from dogs and pigeons!

@ ealgumby
Haha, very true. And I just remembered that Vacc said he was going to be picking a "winning caption" for a charity. I think we totally just ruined this page.

Sorry Vacc. Hope you don't mind.

Love the dogs and pigeons thing. -- Just dogs are cute when they do it... and Jack is... well... not.

******** Caption Winner Chosen ********
As promised, I have chosen a winning caption, and I will be contributing $20 in the name of this weeks winner to Autism Speaks when I walk in their charity event tomorrow.

Winner - Clementine #4.

Especially loved the game-changing twist at the end of that caption.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to click through my link in the Caption writeup. If the link didn't work or you missed it when I first posted it, here's a shortcut : tinyurl.com/3p4fsp There's still plenty of time to sponsor me and my family in the walk.

Holy Svetlana, I actually won! Gosh, I don't know what to say... this is so overwhelming... but let me pull out a little something I jotted down and stashed in my cleavage, just in case...

I'd like to thank the Academy of voters consisting of vacc and vacc, and all my fellow Lost bloggers who inspire me on a daily basis. I'd like to thank Matthew Fox for portraying a character that irritates me to no end, and Damon and Carlton for the rich source material, and Aaron Spelling for filling my childhood with must-see TV memories.

(music rises)

Oh, no! There are so many more people to thank... my kindergarten teacher for the alphabet.. Al Gore for the internet... Jacob, oh Jacob, where are you? Well, wherever you are, you're the greatest and most holographic person I've ever worked with!... and Scarfy! I couldn't do it without Scarfy...

(music blares)

Oh, thank you, just thank you all!!...

(Clementine weeps and waves over her shoulder, as she is forcibly escorted off-Blog by Tania Raymonde and an enormously pregnant Tori Spelling)

Seriously, when did this become a Jack bashing thread? Something tells me ILBxxx needs to find some sort of after school activity...way too much time on her hands.

Number 4 was excellent, so detailed and funny the whole way through. But Cecil Rose, number 7 had me laughing out loud too!

Here's my (belated) entry:

Reporter: I understand that Oceanic Airlines has offered each of you a large settlement. What do you plan on using the money for?

Sun: It's a surprise. (Waves to Daddy)

Hurley: Does this count as money from the numbers? If so, I don't want anything to do with it! If not, Dude, I just gave away like 150 million dollars, and haven't had fried chicken in 3 months...you do the math.

Kate: I'm hiring OJ's lawyers. Oh wait, half of them are dead? I'm RESURRECTING OJ's lawyers.

Aaron: I'm gonna find my real mommy!

Sayid: I'm booking a golf destinations of the incredibly wealthy tour package.

Jack: One word: Electrolysis

Caption Contest:

Jack: "Why are you guys sitting 8 feet away from me and only 5 feet away from each other?"

Hurley: "Face it dude... you stink."

Kate: "Yea... really kind of, um, uh, over-ripe!"

Sayid: "True enough... I have interrogated prisoners for months.. and collectively... they smell better than you."

Sun: "I have to agree Jack... we have Kim-she, that we pickled and buried ten years ago that smells better than you."

Aaron: (thought-bubble) "So.. this is a Jack bashing site... BTW... I smelt it, ergo... I dealt it."

Director: Cut!... Wrap!...

Michelle Forbes: Okay, the real reason we are here is that the Screen Actors Guild is going to extreme measures to ensure that our members are gainfully employed during the pending actors strike due this Summer. There is a clause in our contracts that allows our actors to re-enact other shows that have already been produced. Yes... a question from Entertainment Tonight?

ET: Do these actors here have positions already lined-up?

Matt Fox: I'll handle that one Michelle. Yes. We do. We enjoy working with each other so much that we are going to take over for the "My Name Is Earl" cast. I'll be playing Earl.

Jorge Garcia: I am stepping into the role of Randy.

Evie Lilly: Of course I will be playing Joy... "don't be gettin' no boob glitter on my face... woo-who!" (sigh)

YunJin Kim: I am playing the demure, yet smoking hot illegal alien, Catalina.

Naveen Andrews: I am not under contract yet... but they have me pegged as Darnell "The Crabman". Apparently, this show... which I have not seen yet, also embodies 'kharma' as its' core theme... and no... I do not know if those actors are signed on as the Oceanic Six yet.
