Lip Reading
« on: February 08, 2007, 02:16:00 AM »
If anyone knows how to read lips, I would like to know what Ben was saying while he was talking to Juliet. I think this was the "tivo" moment the producers were talking about. It seems like that scene was put in there specifically for people to try and figure out, so i'm sure it must hold some kind of meaning.

thanks

Well, I'd have to watch it again, but I convinced myself that in the first shot, he said "baby."

I thought it showed her back to us
so there would be no lip reading involved

I think the Tivo moment was the Apollo Ad on the Bus.

Waiting for spooky to do the transcript on Lost-TV to see if any dialogue was actually written for Ben to say, but I'm glad you asked if anyrone read lips anyway, cuz I was going to ask about this too since we're all so interested in what Ben had to say to Juliet, and what is the "history" between them that Tom was talking about...

I'm still rying to find someone that speaks Korean to translate some of the stuff that Jin says that they don't add subtitles to...

That scene reminded me of Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, when HAL is reading Dave and Frank's lips.

Cool, I didn't even think about that because we were so focused on Kubrick's Clockwork Orange, Ludovico brainwashing scene...

it looked as though (to me any way.) the two times they showed Ben talking, he looked as if he were repeating the same thing over and over....wish I could read lips.  :-\

Ok I guess I must not have watched it correctly
I saw Juliettes back to us and Ben's face was down LOL
I'll watch it again and read their lips if I can

All I saw was Julieetes back and Bens face in the mirror.  (this just in we have a translation. BEN; "Juliette let Sawyer and Kate go, or I will tell everyone about Last years Dharma New years party, when you were dancing on the table wearing Toms underwear on your head.")

Or "maybe".
