    More of it was uncovered... it looked almost like a capsule. The number on the hatch matching the number being broadcast might make sense?

    If it were some kind of experiment with multiple capsules, and one crashes, would it (or it's crew) broadcast which one went down?

    That's what clicked .. I heard Box Company and thought to myself ... "Why do I remember that?" .. You hit the nail on the head .. I missed by a bloody mile.

    How about seat #s on the plane - do we know any of those? Perhaps people that are connected, rows that died, etc...

    I LOVE the numbers game. Best wrinkle in a few episodes now. Lots of possibilities. Somehow, I just don't see this working out as a mathematical equation, so it must be something else. Regardless, all of these subtle in-joke clues that were interwoven into the background of past episodes - that's some great writing.

    I like that reasoning for the broadcast source.

    But if the French Woman has been to the radio tower to change the transmission, I'm thinking your theory would have to be built around having a crew (vs. just an automatic beacon going off).

    Another number that was mentioned during the episode...Claire told Locke that she is "almost nine months pregnant."

    Although there has been plenty of speculation, I don't know if she has ever said how far along she is before.

    I an very interested in getting this metal thing out of the ground since it has the numbers etched in it. I am assuming it belonged to the first set of people who landed on the island and they sent the original transmission of the numbers (maybe to identify their boat/plane?). Everything about the numbers seems to have started from this point.

    What happened during minutes 32 and 33? Between when Lenny was being dragged out of the room in the psych ward and Hurley was walking on the suspension bridge? The cable company decided to inform us about a kid that was kidnapped over 100 miles away then. They could have at least done it on a commercial or done it with some scrolling text at the top of the screen, not interrupt LOST!

    Oakland,...
    Hurley shows up next in Australia in the middle of nowhere and meets the widow of the man whose name the mental patient was screaming.

    Can anyone tell me what the Australian woman and Hurley said after she showed off her missing leg? Here in Oakland, a lot of the stations went blank for an Amber Alert. However, the ABC station turned to snow with no sound. Strange.

    I think in the first episode she said she was 7 1/2 months which would be 33 weeks. She couldn't have been more then 35 weeks when the plane crashed because the airlines won't let women fly international flights after 35 weeks.

    She said that after the accident, she lost her leg and her husband was unharmed. Then, bad things started happening to their friends and family, and her husband started to believe that the numbers were bad luck, so they moved to the middle of nowhere to get away from it, but the bad things kept happening.

    Hurley asked if her husband had found any way to stop the curse and she said that he stopped it by putting a gun in his mouth.

    Hurley then asked if there was no way to stop the curse, and she said that she didn't believe in any curses, that bad things just happen and a few numbers couldn't cause bad things to happen, just as not using the numbers wouldn't have prevented the bad things. Hurley disagreed and said that he believed the numbers are cursed.

    i would think so, they seem to drop a small clue each episode.

    makes you think all the survivors are connected somehow.

    I think that the fact that Jack and Sayid didn't die in the explosion and Charlie made it across the bridge shows that Hurley's "luck" has changed on the island, with people around him no longer getting hurt and dying. I think Hurley is getting the same fresh start on the island that the other survivors have been granted.

    Isn't the fourth book of the Bible called Numbers, like this episode.

    And the book of number is basically about a group of lost people (the Israelites) finding their spiritual redemption before entering into the promised land.

    Interesting parallel.

    More questions than answers once again. Must...resist...looking...at...the...final espisode thread on this board. Just someone tell me if there is a nice pay-off at the end of this season...yes or no? It's buggin me because I think Alias was ruined by this kind of stuff.

    Looks like that domain was registered very recently. It doesn't show up in any whois search and the ones I searched were updated yesterday.

    As for calling 481-516-2342; that does not appear (via a quick Google) to be a US area code. Though one Google search I did seemed to come up with an Australian area code (or whatever their equivalent is). But in Australia, don't they have a different phone number format and length as well?

    That reminded me of Goober in Andy Griffith.

    Smak stole my thought. I also thought that it could be a US phone number.

    I didn't initially catch that Locke could work in HUGOs box company. People on this board are sharp. Also how was it that Locke knew it was Claire's birthday. It is not coincidental that he just happened to be making a cradle.....

    My biggest contribution to this thread will be this. Up until this point all we have seen was the small metal hatch. That last shot of it showed the hatch plus some extra metal with the numbers etched in. Now, we don't yet know if all that time Locke and Boone spent in the woods they were diging it up. From what they showed us I don't think it is a bunker but maybe the hatch to a submarine or other kind of boat. Since Boone and Locke never told anyone hatch and nobody else knows about the numbers (or their significance by being cursed) it will be interesting to see how these two lines intersect.
