Jack's tattoos
« on: February 21, 2007, 07:10:44 PM »
First of all HAPPY LOST DAY to everyone.

Supposedly tonight 3 "secrets" will be revieled tonight.  Obviously from the "scenes from next week's Lost" that we saw there is mention of how Jack got his tattoos or perhaps the origin of what the meaning behind them are.

I would list "the mystery of Jack's tattoos" at about 453rd on the list of "unansered secrets" that I would like answered.  I sure hope the other two things they reveal are higher on my list.

I think Alex's boyfriend (cant remember his name) could be a huge source of information if the brainwashing didnt mess him up too much.  We will see, only 3 hours and 50 minutes!

Here's the transcript from Lockdown, hope it helps as a refresher for tonight's episode:

[Back on the island, Sawyer and Jack are playing cards.]

SAWYER: So, where'd you learn to play cards, Doc?

JACK: Phuket.

SAWYER: What the hell were you doing in Thailand? [Jack doesn't respond] What, you don't think I know where Phuket is? Just because I dropped out in 9th grade don't make me an idiot. Far East, huh? I wouldn't have taken you for a world traveler. That where you got the art on your shoulder?

JACK: How about you deal again?

SAWYER: What?

JACK: This time from the top of the deck.

SAWYER [smiling]: Well, I had to try.

(I cut out the next few scences)

[The scene switches to Jack and Sawyer.]

JACK: 10 mangos.

SAWYER: Okay, I'll call you with the aspirin and raise you with a bottle of Amoxicilin.

JACK: Do you even know what Amoxicilin is?

SAWYER: You may have been to Phuket, Doc, but I've been to Tallahassee. [Jack looks like he doesn't understand] Let's just say something was burning and it wasn't from the sunshine.

JACK: I'm all in.

SAWYER: Well, that's the move of a man who wants me to lay it down.

JACK: You're not going to lay it down.

SAWYER: I'm not, huh? Why's that?

JACK: Because there's a bunch of people watching us right now and you don't want them to see you lose. Again.

SAWYER: Well alright, I call. What you got? [Jack shows his cards] Pair a 9s? You pushed in with a pair of 9's?!

JACK: You got me. Let's see 'em.

[Sawyer shows his cards, irritatedly. He's got a pair of 5s.]

JACK: Guess it was enough, huh?

SAWYER: Son-of-a-b*tch.

JACK: I'll come get the meds later. [he starts to leave]

SAWYER: Hey, when I asked you what you wanted for stakes -- why didn't you ask for the guns?

JACK: When I need the guns, I'll get the guns.

didn't someone translate Jack's Tattoos before tonight's show?

What did them come up with? Was it close?

OK, I just didn't get it.  Why were they so pissed off that she gave Jack the tattoo... does it give him some special power?

(I heard someone joke elsewhere that the tattoo means "kick my ass please")

Here's the literal translation, doesn't quite mean what she says it meant...

some forms of tattooing is seen as spiritual... not sure if that holds true for Thailand, but certain tattoos, and more importantly, tattooing methods are seen as a rite of passage... I like ink :)

I thought they built these tattoos up and it did not live up to the billing. We already knew he was a leader and a loner. Big deal

Cause he counts to 5 and then lets the fear go (at least thats how they worked in the pre existing Tatoo with the story line I think).

Well, as in Pandora's link, it could mean 5 seconds of letting the fear in.
