LOST Caption: All Hands On Deck

In Season Four's highly anticipated episode "Meet Kevin Johnson",  we finally get to learn what Michael has been up to in the time since murdering two women, springing the Other formerly known as Henry Gale from captivity, leading his friends into an ambush, and speeding away from the Island with his unusually tall ten year old son - whom he affectionately calls WAAAAAAAAAAALT!

Michael has been recruited by the Others for a suicide mission aboard a freighter of mercenaries that Charles Widmore hired to capture the Island's Bug-Eyed leader.  Posing as deckhand Kevin Johnson,  Ben's "Man On The Boat" finds it difficult to make new friends among the crew of scientists and large men with guns that Michael intends to kill on Ben's command.  

In this scene, Michael... er... Kevin...  finally sees a friendly face, and chats with helicopter pilot Frank Lapidus - the former Oceanic Airlines captain originally slated to pilot flight 815 on September 22, 2004.   What are they saying? That's completely up to you - in this edition of the LOST Photo Caption.

** Update: The rumors circulating on the web are that LOST will return to Wednesday's - with the Season 5 premiere airing on Feb 4, 2009 at 10 PM.

** Newer Update The date and time are officially confirmed.

LOST Season 5 will return on Wednesday January 21 with a 2 hour premiere episode.

I've adjusted this countdown accordingly.

Frank: You realize, Dr. Angelo, that my intelligence has surpassed yours.

Michael: Look! There on the deck! It’s a dead bird! WAAAAAAALLLLT!!!!!

Frank: You got some kind of tourrets, right? Remind me not to take you up in the chopper.

Frank: I just can’t figure it out. I keep going over it in my mind. There was turbulence, but I brought her down on the island in one piece. I might’ve blacked out for a few seconds. I woke up and saw a cow. Crawled down a hill and found my bird. Then I caught my reflection in the windshield. (groans)

Michael: Well, what’s the problem, man? You look fine to me. What did you look like before?

Frank: tinyurl*com/6ytn4e

Michael: (gasp)

Michael: Hey, look man, you're a great guy, and I love that scene from Titanic. But I've gotta say it Frank: you're no Kate Winslet. There's no way I'm standing on the prow with you pretending we're flying.

Frank: Listen up pretty boy. *You* were going to be Winslet, *I* was going to be Di Caprio, and the scene I *wanted* to do was the nude sketch. But there ain't no way it's happening if that's your attitude. No way!

Michael: Oh, please... We can use my cabin.

Frank: Well... ... Alright then.

Michael: Are we peeing for distance this time? Or accuracy?

Lapidus: Distance. (unzips)

Michael: Prepare to meet Kevin's Johnson. (unzips)

Lapidus: Remember, DON'T cross the streams. That would be bad.

Michael: (laughs) Ready... Aim... Fire!!

Regina: HEY! I'm down here!

Michael and Lapidus: SORRY.

Regina: You guys are PIGS!!

Transcript of the 4th Presidential Debate - moderated by Captain Gault aboard the Kahana

Captain Gault: The first question goes to Senator Obama - How would you fix this economy?

Obama: First off Capatain Gault, I want to thank Charles Widmore and the entire crew of the Kahana for hosting this debate. As for the economy, the answer is really simple... We need more money.. And more jobs. That's why my economic plan calls for reinstating the DHARMA Initiative.

Captain Gault: Thank you Senator Obama. Senator McCain, you have 108 seconds to respond.

McCain: I also want to thank Mr. Widmore for allowing us to use his vessel for this first ever "open sea" debate. As you know, I've had the honor of serving with Charles Widmore aboard the Black Rock - prior to my being captured and imprisoned in a Dharma Hatch for six years.

Obama: We didn't land on The Black Rock Rock, The Black Rock landed on us.

McCain: As for the financial crisis, what Senator Obama isn't telling you is that his plan calls for significant increases in taxes and spending. Just this morning, I had the pleasure of meeting a young woman named Regina. She had just finished reading Mr. Obama's economic plan inside out - and upside down. His proposals scared her so much that she threw herself overboard just an hour ago.

Captain Gault: The next question goes to Senator McCain - What is your response to the recent criticism your campaign has received for the decision to replace Sarah Palin as your running mate with actress Tina Fey.

McCain: First off, you have to take into account that the people who are saying that my choice of Tina Fey as Vice President is just a publicity stunt.. well.. these are the very same people who said my original choice of Sarah Palin was a publicity stunt. But anyone who watched Sarah Palin appear with Ms. Fey on Saturday Night Live will have to agree that Tina Fey is a much stronger candidate. I especially liked how she handled herself against Amy Poehler's Hillary Clinton in the season opener.

Captain Gault: That was impressive.

McCain: But really, the clincher for me was Alec Baldwin's inability to distinguish between Ms. Fey and Sarah Palin - who will be replacing Tina Fey on 30 Rock should Tina and I get picked up for a first term.

Captain Gault: Senator Obama, you have 108 seconds.

Obama: I believe that Senator McCain's choice of Tina Fey underscores what is wrong with the entire political system - one in which stars of Hollywood action films and professional wrestlers are elected Governor. With Senator McCain being so very old and unlikely to survive his first term, our country could be in the hands of someone with no political experience.

Captain Gault: Senator McCain, exactly what qualification does Tina Fey have to serve as Vice President, and possible even President?

McCain: I believe that serving for eight years as co-anchor on Saturday Night Live Weekend Update has given Tina Fey far more exposure to both the political and international arenas than my opponent possesses. And quite frankly, I believe that Senator Obama's criticism of Tina Fey is completely unfair. In the last week alone, Senator Obama has spent an unprecendented 3.2 million dollars in negative ads to discredit Ms. Fey.

Obama: Senator McCain pointed out that I spent 3.2 Million Dollars in negative attacks on Tina Fey. You're probably wondering.. Why not 3.3 million? Or 3.4 Million? And I'll tell you why. It's because 3.2 million viewers tuned in to watch Saturday Night Live last weekend - so that really amounts to only one dollar spent per person.

(Loud sound comes blaring throughout the ship.. BEEP.. BEEP.. BEEP)

Captan Gault: We're running out of time. This last question goes to Senator Obama - Do you believe that we are capable of winning the war on terror?

Obama: Excellent question, and I'll answer by pointing out that the use of our military force to secure our own stake in foreign resources is considered by many to be a form of terrorism in and of itself. Case in point, this very ship we're on houses soldiers and weapons and is currently en route to a small island as part of a covert operation that has been financed by special interests.

Captain Gault: Senator McCain - what do you believe is the key to winning the war on terror?

McCain: Here's where Senator Obama and I disagree - I believe that our nations survival depends on our military successfully completing its mission. Simply put, we MUST capture Benjamin Linus. Unlike my opponent, who has said on more than one occasion that he would sit across the table from Benjamin Linus, or Richard Alpert - or even Jacob - without preconditions.


Captain Gault: Sorry, our time's up. Thank you Senator Obama, and thank you Senator McCain.

Jeff: "Hey Harold..."

Harold: "Yeah Jeff - what?"

Jeff: "You know the whole reason I got involved with LOST was the cool weblogs, and wikis and fan sophistication... ca-peeche?"

Harold: "Gotcha - I tried to tap into that luv machine at the end... they wouldn't have any part of it... the fans yu-know?"

Jeff: "Sad... caption contests.. no creative thought... pee jokes... 10 year old Titanic jokes... how's the prostate bro..?"

Harold: "Large and in charge home-slice... large and in charge."

OFF SUBJECT, but in the "Lost" frame of reference:

Today is October 28, and on this date in 1704, John Locke, English philosopher, died.
On this date in 1831, English chemist and physicist Michael Faraday demonstrated the first dynamo.

On this date in 2008, most of the LOST buddies are languishing through what has to be the first and last episodes of Crusoe just to fill our "island void."

We are obviously . . . pitiful.

Frank: It's OK to have a small package, Kev. I mean, it IS tiny, but I don't think that's why she jumped.

Kevin: *Looks Down* Yeah... At least I got to hit it before she went nuts.

Frank: Did she wear the chains?

Kevin: Heh, yeah.
