Lost

Dave - S2-E18

Corrected entry: Just after Hurley throws away his stash and everyone comes to get the food from the jungle (balloon), you see the faces of the people running. There is one man slightly to the side running to the food. This is Boone. He is already dead in the first season after getting shot.

00:03:05

crazyhatguy88

Correction: A few seconds later there is a clearer shot of this person and it is not Boone.

The Man Behind the Curtain - S3-E20

Corrected entry: When Sawyer was playing the tape to the group showing where Juliet was still working for the others; she and Jack walked up and she told them to turn the tape over and play it. On the other side it had her instructions and what they were planning to do in the next two days. She said she told Jack what the others were forcing her to do and what they had planed and when. However, earlier Richard was asking Ben if he wanted him to deliver the tape with the new instructions for Juliet and Ben was telling him he already did the instructions and was fixing to ask Tom where it was when Locke interrupted him by walking into camp carrying his dead father. Plus there was no recorder there for Ben to tape instructions and even if he did, there was no way Juliet could have known what was on the opposite side of the tape for Locke had took it and gave it to Sawyer.

jsbuchanan

Correction: I don't believe there's a mistake here. John Locke saw Ben put the recorder in the drawer. That's how he knew what to steal and from where. For Juliet it was just the normal routine. Whenever she got the recorder back, instructions would be on the other side of the tape. It is somewhat strange though that Juliet's side is playing instead of the side last recorded while John Locke didn't mention the impending assault on the camp to Sawyer.

Par Avion - S3-E12

Corrected entry: After Kate climbs over the pylon fence, in the shots were she is checking on Mikhail (man with the eye patch) his "dead" body is breathing.

00:27:55

libb

Correction: He was pretending he was dead because later he was running through the jungle when he met Desmond.

Homecoming - S1-E15

Corrected entry: Lucy says that the stolen cigarette case was pulled out of Charlie's pocket by the "EMTs". But Lucy is British, and paramedics are not known as EMTs in Britain.

Correction: Yes they are. I come from Scotland, and a friend of mine worked as an EMT doing ambulance runs, which was his job title and what he was referred to.

Purple_Girl

Show generally

Corrected entry: The numbers that appear everywhere in the show actually originated on a completely different TV show. Veronica Mars. A show about a teenage detective juggling school, boyfriends, and her father's investigation practice, where she helps out. In one of the episodes, Veronica takes a fortune cookie's fortune and puts it against her vanity mirror with the numbers showing - 4 8 15 16 23 42.

Knever

Correction: Both shows premiered in 2004. Lost used the numbers on the very first episode. "Donut Run", while the episode of Veronica Mars with the fortune cookie and the numbers premiered on January 25, 2006. The numbers were added as a nod to Lost, which was Veronica Mars' Wednesday competition.

Greenman37

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: In Charlie's flashbacks aboard the aeroplane, we see he goes into first class to snort the heroin. As the turbulence hits, he leaves and nearly gets hit by the trolley, before buckling himself in - still in first class. Therefore when the plane goes down, Charlie should've been in the first class section of the plane and consequently shouldn't be alive and on the beach with the rest of the survivors.

Hovis63

Correction: This scene is not shown in real time (i.e. continuous). If you look carefully, just before he finds a seat to buckle himself into, behind him is the divider he passed on the way to first class. Although it does not make sense, he must have crawled all the way back to the middle section of the plane. If he sat immediately in first class you would have seen the glass wall behind him, but you do not.

XIII

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In Pilot 1, when Jack has Kate sew up his back, it shows the sewing kit with colored string. Later in the scene Kate asks Jack what color he wants, and he says, "Standard black," even though there was no black string in the sewing kit.

Leachy

Correction: Yes there is. There are six colors in total in the kit. In true lost style, the black is right next to the white thread (to keep up with the on-going black/white, good/evil themes).

XIII

Something Nice Back Home - S4-E10

Corrected entry: When Jack goes to visit Hurley in the mental hospital, the doctor lets Jack into Hurley's room via a swipecard. When Jack leaves he just opens the door and walks out. Surely this room would be secure both inside and out?

00:14:50

Correction: Not necessarily - Hurley is in the institution voluntarily, there is no point in locking him up. There is a point in giving him privacy if he wants it, however.

Maternity Leave - S2-E15

Corrected entry: Ethan is inserting a needle intoClair's abdomen, a needle that large inserted into the amniotic sac at that late in a pregnancy would rupture the sac and the baby would have to be delivered. We know that Claire didn't deliver for 2 weeks after she was returned to the beach.

Boobra

Correction: We're only seeing Clares' memories of what happened. It is quite evident she was drugged the whole time, so some details can be off.

LA X (Part 1) - S6-E1

Corrected entry: Sayid Jarrah from Iraq is holding a passport in his hand which is an Iranian passport. There are two paragraphs, one in Persian, the other in English, and at the end of each paragraph you can read, "Islamic republic of IRAN."

00:39:30

ewazatilla

Correction: Jarrah could have gotten an Iranian citizenship.

rswarrior

Born to Run - S1-E22

Corrected entry: The cops shoot at Kate when she tries to speed away with her childhood friend in the car. A real cop would not shoot at a person who has no weapons, especially if an innocent victim is in close range.

Correction: A police officer breaking protocol? This happens all the time (in every country).

XIII

Season 5 generally

Corrected entry: Factual errors: when we see the statue of the Egyptian statue, it is incorrectly depicted on several levels. First, Taweret was never shown as a human with an animal head, like the gods Anubis, Thoth, Horus, etc., were. She was always carved as an upright, unclothed pregnant hippopotamus. Second, even using artistic license because this is a fictional show, someone should have done some research and realize that Taweret is a goddess and as such, she would not be wearing a kilt because that was only for male gods. Also, no god or goddess would be wearing footwear of any kind but if you look close, you can see that the statue is wearing something that look like Greek or Roman sandals. The only thing that the makers of the show got right is that Taweret is carrying ankhs.

Correction: Who said this statue was Taweret? It's not stated in the show; it's not even certain to be of Egyptian origin.

Season 5 generally

Corrected entry: Towards the end of season five, they talk about how they need to get the nuke to destroy the energy at the swan. However, according to Newton's conservation of energy, energy can neither be created nor destroyed. So blowing up this pocket of energy with a bomb is futile, as it just wouldn't work. However, this is a major plot device, and Farraday, who is a very 'intelligent' physicist, is the one to come up with this pointless idea.

Correction: We do not know what kind of energy is in the pocket, and thus we cannot know why Faraday believes detonating the bomb will neutralize it. It cannot be concluded, with certainty, that his intention is to "blow up" the pocket of energy. Perhaps he believes, for some reason, that the nuclear blast will somehow neutralize this pocket of energy, rather than destroying it. Plus, we have repeatdly seen violations of the laws of physics on the island.

Some Like It Hoth - S5-E14

Corrected entry: When Hurley and Miles drive into the construction area of the Orchid Station (1977), all the vehicles are from the 60's or 70's, but a backhoe made around 2004 is present.

Correction: Research will tell you a lot. For example: the excavator used in episode 5x13 was constructed in 1977, so it's not a mistake. The 1977 Case 580C Loader Backhoe: http://buildandfarm.com/show.php?id=3&p=10&page=1&srt=make%20ASC and http://www.equipmenttraderonline.com/find/listing/1977-CASE-580CCK-93932674 and http://www.machinerytrader.com/listings/detail.aspx?ohid=6682086.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In Episode 5-8 "The life and Death of Jeremy Bentham" Locke goes to visit Walt, but in a previous episode, Walt visits Hurley and says Jeremy Benthem visited him. Locke never mentioned the name he was using.

Boobra

Correction: It has been established in previous episodes that Walt "sees" things and knows things that no one else does. He could have simply seen the name Jeremy Bentham" in a dream or vision.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

S.O.S. - S2-E19

Corrected entry: As Jack opens the door where they are keeping "Henry Gale" the door changes between shots from light wood to metal.

00:02:55

Correction: The door never changes.

Bowling255 Premium member

Dave - S2-E18

Corrected entry: When Ana Lucia kicks Sayid out of the room where they are holding "Henry Gale" she shuts the door behind Sayid. The door is a light brown color wooden door. Later, when Ana Lucia lets Lock in and shuts the door behind him, the inside of the door is metal.

00:13:25 - 00:37:55

Correction: No the door never changes.

Bowling255 Premium member

Flashes Before Your Eyes - S3-E8

Corrected entry: Desmond claims that he was saving Charlie's life by saving Claire from drowning by jumping in before he does. However, if Desmond had not had a flash to witness the event of him dying, Charlie wouldn't have known it was happening either as he followed Desmond to the event. As we find out later, they were a mile inland, so there's no way Charlie could have found out until a long time after Claire had drowned.

Life700

Correction: Incorrect. After they learned that Eko was killed, they would have returned to the beach, where Claire was drowning. Then Charlie would have died trying to save her.

Flashes Before Your Eyes - S3-E8

Corrected entry: In the London pub, Desmond refers to the barman as the "bartender", a word never used in England. He also gets a drink without paying, leaving money on the bar when he leaves - this may be the American way, but in British pubs you always pay when you receive your drink.

Correction: It can hardly be said that ALL British pubs make you pay when you order your drink. Also, I've heard bartender used in England by English people.

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Greatest Hits - S3-E21

Corrected entry: In the first season of Lost we discover, after Charlie calls for help to save a drowning woman, that he can't swim. But in this episode we see him swimming down to the underwater outpost to enable the castaways to get off the island.

Correction: He's been on the island for some considerable time by that point - more than enough to get the hang of it.

Tailkinker Premium member

Show generally

Corrected entry: They're often trying to figure out who is on the plane, but it would seem pretty easy to determine just by asking questions about innocuous things, such as the layout of Sydney airport, what food/movies they had on the plane, a description of the check-in counter, etc. There are probably hundreds of possible questions that someone who wasn't there wouldn't know.

Japan-Games

Correction: And how much would you honestly notice about the layout of an airport, or the check-in counter (which look pretty much identical in every airport I've ever been in)? There are airports that I've arrived at or departed from, but I couldn't tell you much about the layout - you just follow the signs; you don't need to learn where everything is. Movies? All they have to say is that they didn't watch any or they were asleep so they don't remember. Food? Early on there's still food remaining from the plane, so easy to determine what was on the menu. Who were they sitting next to? Given that the majority of the plane's passengers died, would be relatively easy to simply claim to be sitting next to one of the fatalities. An infiltrator could work out a plausible answer to just about any question that they might be asked, particularly as initially the survivors have no reason to suspect that there could be anyone there who wasn't on the plane, allowing them ample time to research their story.

Tailkinker Premium member

Season 4 generally

Corrected entry: "The Shape of Things to Come" - When Ben goes to say his goodbyes to Alex after the Smoke Monster attack, her eyes are closed when he approaches her body. However, her eyes are wide open when he turns her over, and he closes them himself.

Correction: Given the angle that her head is at when we see her body as Ben approaches it, it cannot be accurately determined whether her eyes were open or closed.

Tailkinker Premium member

Not In Portland - S3-E7

Corrected entry: Towards the end, when Juliette shoots Danny in the chest, she fires three times, although when Danny falls down dead, there are only two bullet holes in his chest.

Correction: She missed with one shot, just because she fired 3 times doesn't mean all 3 shots were accurate.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Corrected entry: Fairly near the beginning of this episode, just after the guy gets sucked into the engine, in the next shot, where the camera cuts to Jack caring for Claire, look carefully above the engine in the background just before it explodes. You can see what looks like a black cloud of smoke fly down to the engine and then fly up really fast - within split seconds it explodes. It is best seen in slow motion. Without wanting to give too much away about the rest of the series, this cloud of smoke appears at least once more during the series (in the finale) and is apparently linked with the 'monster' in the jungle - although all will be explained in series 2.

Sam Johnson

Correction: This trivia entry is actually a mistake, as it was confirmed to be a CGI error, and is not actually the monster. The black shape should have radiated away from the explosion, but never toward it. (for confirmation, view this link:)http://www.thefuselage.com/Threaded/showthread.php?t=32133.

Ji Yeon - S4-E7

Corrected entry: During the 'flash forward' when the Asian woman is having her baby, the doctor suddenly comes in and orders the nurse helping her to 'just give her something for the pain'. A doctor would never do that. A nurse is not allowed to give a patient medication without a strict, specific drug order from a doctor or Physician Assistant. In fact, a nurse would probably lose her license if she did.

Correction: This assumes that the regulations are the same in Korea as they are in the USA. Also, in this type of situation there are orders pre-written for certain standard types of medication (pain, nausea, etc.). Both the doctor and the nurse would know that. When the doctor tells the nurse to "give her something for the pain," the nurse would simply give her a dose of whatever pain medication had already been ordered.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Season 4 generally

Corrected entry: In the scene where Sayid is going through Ben's passports the first one he comes to is a red/maroon New Zealand one. New Zealand passports are blue.

Correction: Not true. The top passport, the New Zealand one, is blue (although the light in the room is dim, so this may appear otherwise). Sayid then flips quickly through the pile, looking at the passport covers, before opening one with a red cover. The one he opens is Swiss.

Twotall

Season 4 generally

Corrected entry: Season 4, "The Economist" - When Sayid looks over at Naomi's body, her eyes are closed. However, later on he walks over, bends down, and gently closes her eyes himself. I know things are freaky on this island and dead people might not necessarily stay that way (wouldn't be the first time someone we thought was dead suddenly showed up), but I doubt Naomi's eyes popped back open on their own.

Correction: Actually, they do. Open is the human eyes 'default' state when awake. After someone dies, you can close them, but rigor mortis will pop them open again after a short time. They are generally glued or sewn shut before a funeral.

Grumpy Scot

Show generally

Corrected entry: In Episode "Through the Looking Glass," Marsha Thomason, who plays Naomi Dorrit and James Lesure, who plays Dr. Hamill, were both major actors on "Las Vegas," playing Nesa Holt and Mike Cannon.

Boobra

Correction: Actors appearing in other shows and/or movies is quite common, and is not really trivia.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Show generally

Corrected entry: In episode "Doc": When Sun is talking to the blackmailer in the park in the beginning of the show, she demands 100 thousand dollars. Being in Korea, wouldn't she have asked for Won, which is the monetary unit of Korea?

Boobra

Correction: Not necessarily. She might have wanted the money in U.S. dollars for any of a number of reasons (for example, if she was thinking of leaving the country).

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Show generally

Corrected entry: When Boone and Locke first find the hatch there is a river flowing almost right next to it. But whenever the hatch is visited hereafter there is no river to be seen anywhere.

Correction: In fact it was pretty bad weather when they found the hatch. There wasn't a river, but rainwater gushing down the slopes.

Lockdown - S2-E17

Corrected entry: When Jack is playing cards with Sawyer, Sawyer deals too many cards to Jack. He deals him two, and then deals him at least one more. Neither said anything and they were going to play with them, and they're both au fait with the rules, so it's not a character mistake.

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Correction: They never specify that they're playing Texas Hold'Em. They could be playing one of the variants, like Omaha, Pineapple, or Crazy Pineapple, where players DO get more than 2 cards.

Captain Defenestrator Premium member

The Long Con - S2-E13

Corrected entry: Ana-Lucia, like several characters before her, gets Steve mixed up with Scott. But this is not possible, because she never met Scott, who died about 3 weeks before the Tailies joined the Midsection passengers.

Correction: Ana Lucia could have easily heard Steve referred to as Scott by another character, and then got confused herself.

Dandude

White Rabbit - S1-E5

Corrected entry: Boone's job appears to change halfway through this episode. In the pilot he tells Jack that he's a licensed lifeguard. This still seems to be true at the start of White Rabbit, because he is the one who swims out to save Joanna. But later in the same episode, he mentions that he runs a business, which is elaborated on later: he tells Locke about his mother's wedding supply chain stores. The lifeguard job is never mentioned again.

Correction: Boone is at least 20 (Ian Somehalder, who plays Boone, is 28). It's entirely possible he had a summer job as a lifeguard, before joining his family's business.

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Show generally

Corrected entry: The distance to the hatch constantly changes throughout the series. First it takes Boone and Locke a whole day to find it, after this however it seems to take characters nothing longer than maybe half an hour, as the time of day does not seem to change.

Correction: It possible that they found a shorter route to the hatch while they were learning the lay of the island.

Boobra

Pilot (2) - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When Sayid and Sawyer are fighting, Jack grabs Sawyer around the arms and begins to pull him away. The camera cuts to a shot of Sayid and Michael, then back to Sawyer and Jack, and Jack grabs Sawyer's left arm a second time.

Correction: Sawyer could have broken free in the time between the cut, so Jack grabs him again.

Season 2 generally

Corrected entry: Ana Lucia shoots Jason six times. In a later episode her mum states that he was shot five times.

Correction: This only goes to show that either a) one of the bullets missed him, and he was found with five slugs in him, or b) that Ana's mother misremembered, which is a character mistake.

Twotall

Outlaws - S1-E16

Corrected entry: The first time Sawyer goes to the Sweet Shrimp shack, you can see that the license plate on Sawyer's car is not from Sydney (New South Wales' license plates are yellow; Sawyer's is white).

Correction: Whats wrong with having non New South Wales license plates? In Queensland I frequently see cars driven and even sold with license plates from other states in Australia such as New South Wales, Victoria.

Lummie Premium member

Show generally

Corrected entry: Episode 2x19 S.O.S.:Ana-Lucia tells Locke that "I pressed your button". Locke replies with "It's not my button". The closed caption read "It's not my butt".

Correction: When closed captions are missing letters or have misspellings, it is usually the result of a reception or transmission problem. The channel reception could also affect the captions. It could also have been a stenocaptioner error. Either way, it's not a show error.

Jane Doe

Show generally

Corrected entry: For a computer that's easily a decade old, the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8 keys (those used to input the numbers) have held up remarkably well. Not worn down at all compared to the others, which are supposed to have gone unused.

Correction: It is possible to replace keys on a keyboard, for instance when they have become very worn. And since the bunker is well-stocked with all kinds of tools and spare equipment, it is not unlikely that this has happened.

Twotall

Whatever the Case May Be - S1-E12

Corrected entry: Kate got whacked by her accomplice on her left cheek, but when she goes out into the main part of the bank a little bit later, her right cheek is bruised.

Correction: While Kate is in the office, we see her being struck on the left side, which leaves a bruise on the left side of her lip. Then it cuts away to the main bank area, just before the door to the office opens, when Kate comes out with more bruising on the right side. Time has passed between the two shots, and it was during that time that Kate received more bruises to be more convincing as a supposed victim. We do not need to see it onscreen to know that this occurred.

Super Grover Premium member

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Corrected entry: At the very end of the episode, when the passengers are boarding the doomed flight in a flashback, there is a shot of Sawyer walking down one of the aisles. If you look closely, you can see his bag bumps someone on the shoulder, and they turn around to glare at him. It's Sayid, sitting on the aisle seat of the left section of seats. However, not too long later, we see a shot of Sayid sitting down in 'his' seat, but he is now sitting on the aisle seat in the MIDDLE section of seats.

Correction: It is not impossible to switch seats in an airplane. Maybe Sayid was unhappy with his seat and asked a stewardess if it was possible to switch, or maybe he gave up his seat to someone who asked him (if they were travelling with a companion and were seated apart form each other, for instance).

Twotall

The Greater Good (a.k.a. Sides) - S1-E21

Corrected entry: Sayid is in Sydney, yet when he jumps out of the white van in the warehouse the numberplate on the van is a white Hawaiian one, not a yellow and black New South Wales one.

Correction: Why does the van have to be from Australia. It is possible it had been brought over from Hawaii.

Chaz1003

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: During the second half of the Season 1 Finale "Exodus", Hurley is rushing to the airport to make his flight. When Hurley's car suddenly breaks down on the way to the airport, there is a close-up of the dashboard, and in clear green numbers we see "42KM 23C 15KPH speed". The dashboard display then quickly switches to flash the green numbers "42 KM 8/4KPH (8 changes into 4). When Hurley makes it to his gate it is number 23.

Correction: Again, the reoccurrence of these numbers are fairly obvious plot points. Listing every time these numbers appear in the show is unnecessary. The fact that at least one these numbers will appear in almost every episode indicates the relevance of these numbers to the island. No need to point out every occurrence.

XIII

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Corrected entry: Because of an over-zealous set hairdresser, Charlie's and Sawyer's hair are noticeably shorter in the second episode than in The Pilot, Parts 1 & 2.

Steph_Jared

Correction: The hair does not look any shorter.

Bowling255 Premium member

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: Whenever Charlie is seen snorting drugs, Dominic Monaghan is actually snorting brown sugar.

Correction: To acquire realism, actors snort and inject themselves with non-toxic stuff. It should not be considered trivia if actors do something to better their perfomance. Specially if it's done often.

Jane Doe

Show generally

Corrected entry: Season 2, Episode 3: While Jack and Locke are watching the "Orientation" film down in the underground pod, the doctor in the film mentions that the clock must be reset before it reaches 108 minutes. "108" is the exact total of all the "Lotto Numbers" added together, which ironically are also the numbers used to program the clock. 4 + 8 + 15 + 16 + 23 + 42 = 108.

Correction: How is it ironic if the numbers are part of the mystery of the island? The numbers come up in a lot of situations, it's done on purpose by the writers. It's part of the show.

Jane Doe

Show generally

Corrected entry: 2 of the "numbers" in order are 8 and 15. The flight they were on was oceanic air 815.

Correction: Not significant enough to be trivia because it's obvious.

Jane Doe

Show generally

Corrected entry: How did Sawyer know "The Others" were coming for the boy? Danielle told Sayid and Charlie that well after the raft was launched.

Correction: When are are referring to? If it's after the raft is attacked by the Others, then they made it quite clear they were there for the boy and he attempted to shoot them based on them making it so clear.

James King III

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the final episode of season one, as Hurley runs to catch the doomed flight, he runs past a girl's soccer team. The numbers on their backs are 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 - the same numbers that Hurley used to win the lottery, that are printed on the side of the hatch and that were broadcasted from the island itself.

Correction: This isn't just trivia, it's also part of the plot. Plus, the numbers come up in a lot of situations. All of them should not be considered trivia.

Jane Doe

...In Translation - S1-E17

Corrected entry: When Jin goes to the guy's house to deliver the "message", the man's daughter is watching TV. The man on TV is Hurley. (Explained why in the next episode, "Numbers".)

Correction: This isn't trivia. it's a plot point.

Ingabritzen

Show generally

Corrected entry: Claire is very pregnant when the show starts. Women are not permitted to fly during their last trimester.

Correction: Tell that to my children, some of whom had their first experiences aboard an airplane, while I was in the last trimester of my pregnancies.

Super Grover Premium member

Outlaws - S1-E16

Corrected entry: In Sawyer's flashback sequence he goes to kill a man in Australia who works in a caravan called "Sweet Shrimp". When in fact the shrimp the man used are called Prawns in Australia. Shrimp is an American term for the food.

00:25:55

Correction: The man that Sawyer killed was an American. He most likely named his business Sweet Shrimp instead of Prawns in keeping with his American roots.

Jane Doe

Raised by Another - S1-E10

Corrected entry: Claire and her boyfriend are carrying groceries in brown paper bags; these bags are not used in Australia. Clear plastic bags are used by supermarkets.

Correction: Actually that is not entirely true. I know of many supermarkets that use paper bags or environment friendly bags. Sure the majority of supermarkets have plastic bags, but saying ALL supermarkets is an inaccurate exaggeration.

XIII

Do No Harm - S1-E20

Corrected entry: Kate catches Claire's baby as he is being born and hands him straight to Claire, all gooey and 'newborn', but the baby has no umbilical cord. There was no time for Kate to tie off and cut the cord, nor a time-lapse or scene-change that would have allowed this to happen.

Correction: I have watched this twice and both times and there is a umbilical cord.

Bowling255 Premium member

Hearts and Minds - S1-E13

Corrected entry: How did Boone know where to find Shannon in Sydney, Australia? She never mentions over the phone on where she is.

Correction: There are plenty of possible explanations to this. She could have called again on another occation, she could have left her adress with a friend or family member, he could have tracked her through a detective agency, he could have found out that the call came from Australia and then tracked her through official registries etc. After all, some time passes between the two scenes of Shannon calling and Boone showing up in Australia.

Twotall

Pilot (2) - S1-E2

Corrected entry: Polar bears have muscles so dense, that if you were to unload an entire handgun clip into him, you'd only piss it off even further. If he was shot in the head he'd go down but the head has no sign of any blood or injuries of any sort.

Correction: It's not known for a fact that it was a polar bear. Also, the island is full of mysteries. It being gunned down by one bullet could be one of them.

Jane Doe

White Rabbit - S1-E5

Corrected entry: In Jack's flashback when he finds his father's wallet he pulls out two Australian $50 notes, the note behind the one shown is actually a piece of yellow paper. (The writing small characters on the edges are missing).

Correction: That's probably becuase the other note isn't a $50 note at all. You don't see enough of the second "note" on screen. It might supposed to be a yellow piece of paper that Jack's dad had in his wallet.

XIII

Show generally

Corrected entry: After the events of 9/11 it has been illegal to bring knives on board a plane. Yet Locke manages to bring an entire set of knives on board.

Correction: It was stated in the show (episode 1.04) that Locke checked the knives (ie: they were in the aircraft's cargo hold with the rest of the luggage). Locke didn't bring the knives on board in his carry-on.

Shaun Ewing

Show generally

Corrected entry: Locke had been in the wheelchair for 4 years, then miraculously, he is able to walk again after the plane crash. After 4 years in the wheelchair, his leg muscles would have deteriorated so badly, his legs would not have been able to even support his own weight, let alone walk or jog.

Correction: The key word is "miraculously." The whole idea is that a miracle, something otherworldly happened to Locke. The condition of his leg muscles is hardly an issue in this case.

Krista

Show generally

Corrected entry: In an early episode, Michael tells somebody that he had never seen his son, Walt, until after his wife died. In episode 14, "Special," his flashback shows that he was with his son until Walt was probably 18 months old.

Correction: Michael tells Locke "I wasn't part of his life until his mother passed away, two weeks ago" as a reply to Locke's statement that Michael should be proud of Walt's bravery. That doesn't mean he never saw Walt, he probably just means that he wasn't around for the formative years that made Walt brave.

Quotes

Benjamin Linus: Your flight crashed on September 22,2004. Today is November 29th. That means you've been on this island for sixty-nine days. And yes, we do have contact with the outside world, Jack. That's how we know that during those sixty-nine days, your fellow Americans re-elected George W. Bush, Christopher Reeve has passed away, Boston Red Sox won the World Series.
[Jack begins to laugh.]
Benjamin Linus: What?
