Title: What was the story that Jack told Kate?
Post by: MichiganFan on November 09, 2006, 12:28:14 AM
I don't have time to pop in my Season 1 DVD. What was the story?

I don't know, I was hoping someone here would have it.

Kate: I might throw up on you.

Jack: You're doing fine.

Kate: You don't seem afraid at all. I don't understand that.

Jack: Well...fear's sort of an odd thing. When I was in residency my first solo procedure was a spinal surgery on a sixteen-year-old kid. A girl. And at the end after thirteen hours I was closing her up and I...I accidentally ripped her dural sac. Shredded the base of the spine where all her nerves come together. Membrane as thin as tissue. So it ripped open. Nerves just spilled out of her like angel hair pasta, spinal fluid flowing out of her and I...the terror was just so crazy. So real. And I knew I had to deal with it. So I just made a choice. I'd let the fear in, let it take over, let it do its thing. But only for five seconds. That's all I was gonna give it. So I started to count. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. And it was gone. I went back to work, sewed her up, and she was fine.

Kate: If that'd been me, I would have run for the door.

Jack: No, I don't think that's true. You're not running now.


Those last two lines are pretty interesting in this new context, eh?

Thanks. I remembered the pushing fear aside for 5 seconds part, but I wasn't sure if this was THE story. Thanks for the transcript.

Yep, that's the one  ;D

Later in the Epi (or maybe the second part of Pilot) Kate counts to 5 while waiting to see if Charlie and Jack survived their cockpit encounter with Smokie.

And she looked hot doing it.

Fear aside, I think that Kate would still run... that was pretty much the point of her backstory...

As far as what he means, I believe he's saying to her that he can fix Ben like he fixed that girl and that she should not let fear overcome her.

I thought it was simply a "secret password."  Jack & Kate are the only 2 that should know about that story, so if she's safe, she'll let him know by telling him the story, but if she's not safe & has to fake a story, he'll know that she's not safe.  Did anyone else get this impression?
Title: Re: What was the story that Jack told Kate?
Post by: demra on November 26, 2006, 02:39:01 AM
it is a " safe word " of sorts 

like Princess said  if she is not safe and they make her tell a story she makes one up and jack lets Ben die

i agree that its a secret password but I think Kate will always run, its who she is.

what do you mean by Kate will also run 

i am very tired tonight so forgive me if it is obvious and i am being dense

In her phone call with the Marshall in I Do, he says to her basically that she cannot stay in one place, that she will always run.
Title: Re: What was the story that Jack told Kate?
Post by: demra on December 09, 2006, 01:48:16 PM
LOL  i really should not post when i am as tired as i was that night 

now what you said makes perfect sense 

yes  Kate will always run
I find it hard to believe that she cares more for any of the Losties more then she cared for the guy she married and she ran from him

she instigated the need to run by calling the Marshall 

on the island there is no where to go  but she still finds ways to get close and then run away

that quality seems to be very ingrained in her nature

Hopefully through this experience she is learning that their really is no place to run to.

Also she was convinced sawyer was going to die. Her sleeping with him was a short term decision on her part. Not a long time commitment.
Title: Re: What was the story that Jack told Kate?
Post by: daisyrain on December 10, 2006, 06:33:26 PM
Definately not a long term committment, she will run, back out of it before too long.
Title: Re: What was the story that Jack told Kate?
Post by: demra on December 10, 2006, 06:40:37 PM
my thoughts also   when it looked like they were going to be on the island forever she did not want to sleep with him  ( ok  maybe she wanted to LOL ) but given his looming death  she was willing to take that step 
now how will she back away from it  ??

Just by becoming a moody girl, we can be very good at getting people to leave us alone when we need to, and besides she drugged her HUSBAND to run which indicates that she wont stop at anything to get what she wants
Title: Re: What was the story that Jack told Kate?
Post by: demra on December 10, 2006, 06:53:18 PM
LOL true enough  you laides do have a way  of shooin off a fella  ;)


but this is a little different  she is trapped on the island and needs to rely on everyone  to survive  and Sawyer is a survivor if nothing else

i think it will ba a bit more complicated then your  typical  " blow the guy off " thing

ps Nice to see y a Nat (((((((huggs ))))))))

how are things in sunny down under

SHe also refused to answer sawyer when he asked her if she loved him.
Title: Re: What was the story that Jack told Kate?
Post by: demra on December 11, 2006, 12:14:23 AM
She will get out of it  and hurt sawyer in the process

You should know better than to tangle with Jugdish. Come on, Jim, even your stick wouldn't faze him. (He's wearing a helmet...)
