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.


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.


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.


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.


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).


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).


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.

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.


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.

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.

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.

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).


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.


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.


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.


Correction: The hair does not look any shorter.

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.

...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.


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.


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.

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.


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.

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?
Jack Shepard: [Still laughing.] If you wanted me to believe that, you probably should have picked somebody else besides the Red Sox.
Bejmain Linus: No, they were down 3-0 against the Yankees in the Championship Series and then won eight straight.
Jack Shepard: [Skeptically.] Sure, sure. Of course they did.
[Ben turns on a VCR.]
Joe Buck: Back to Foulke... Red Sox fans have longed to hear it! The Boston Red Sox are world champions! A clean sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Red Sox celebrate in the middle of the diamond here at Busch Stadium.



When Hurley is at the new house, after his mom hurts her ankle, he reaches into the car window to get the cell phone. When he begins to dial, the cameraman's arm moving about is reflected in the back chrome of the side view mirror.



The character Sun was created specifically for Yoon-jin Kim, after she auditioned for the role of Kate but the writers felt she was not right for the role.
