Who did Jack call first?
« on: May 24, 2007, 02:42:45 AM »
Someone with closed captioning...

After Jack sees the obit on the plane and later is in the car, he calls someone and is broken up about the obit. I thought he said "Penny" but I don't know.

Anyone?

He's crying in his car on the bridge, dials a 7-digit number, and gets a voice mail message: "You have reached 310-555-0148. Please leave a message."  He says, "Hey, it's me... I, ah, ... I just read... " and then he hangs up.

It's most likely a prop inconsistency, but the number he dials (if you're familiar with touch-tones) is NOT 555-0148.

At the end, when he's drinking in his room, he picks up the phone to call Kate and dials an 11-digit number.  It's a flip phone, but if it was a land line, then I suppose he could have been dialing a 1-area code-number.  But again, listening to the touch-tones, no part of the number is the same as the 7-digit number he dialed at the start.  Probably another prop error.

Despite the discrepancy in the numbers actually dialed, I suspect he was talking to Kate both times.  But we may not know for sure for... a good while.

Do not agree with this one.  He called a 310 number, the area code being in Los Angeles.  I believe he was calling to either hear the voice of the person who was dead or was pretty f-ed up when he called (obvious).

I think it was Locke he was calling and I think it was Locke in the coffin.

LOL, I just disagreed with you on another thread ma dear.

310 is Los Angeles.  He and Kate live in Los Angeles.  Kate said she couldn't talk to Jack because of "him".  He is calling her, knows he shouldn't and hangs up.  Calls again and again, until she finally agrees to meet him.  When he gets through to her it is the same 310 number.

Maybe he called Kate cell first and then later called her home or work number, maybe she works nights and could answer it at night.  Or maybe since her new hubby is "HIM" they got Jacob off of the island and at night she surrounds him with gray dust so he cant leave the house

If that's the case, I hope Kate can see him better than we could see Jacob!
