    If TV has taught me anything, it's that fat ugly guys are married to hot wives all the time...and typically hilarity ensues. ;)

    I watched it in the UK when it was first shown at 6:00pm on BBC2! I was too young to pick it apart until much later though.

    Anyway, back to the topic....

    I'm convinced that the writers have a framework in which they work and they can mould it any way they need to in order to misdirect where necessary. It wouldn't surprise me if they have a team whose job it is to scour the message boards for theories so they can add something to a later show to cast doubt on it!

    The biggest problem with this show is that they CAN'T reveal what's actually behind it all without ending the show! I have a fear that it'll get cancelled somewhere down the line without a lot of questions being answered and we'll all be left hanging!

    As for Hurley dreaming it all, I'd rather be in a dream where I had a hot chick for a girlfriend than being fat and lonely in real life!

    (for the record, I AM fat, but not lonely thanks to a fantastic wife who just called me at the office for no other reason than to tell me she loves me!).

    28 regular production episodes for Season 1 plus the second pilot = 29.
    The Cage was actually production number 1 which of course wasn't aired until recut for the two part The Menagerie.
    Where No Man Has Gone Before was production number 2 and was aired.

    HEY! That's a great theory! Maybe the doc hypnotised Hurley late at night and had him pose for that picture. :D

    On the contrary, I think that would be absolutely the best possible ending.

    My input on "Dave", all speculation

    In Hurley's mind Dave was a patient at the Mental Hospital. We had no indication that Dave had ever been "seen" by Hurley prior to being put in the hospital. This means that Dave did not start appearing in Hurley's mind until AFTER he was presumably taking whatever "medication" the hospital was giving him. It is noteworthy that the same day that Hurley stops taking the medication he also stops seeing Dave.
    On the Island Hurley did not see Dave until he began eating the Dharma food. Also noteworthy is that Dave appeared each time exactly when Hurley would begin to binge on the Dharma food.

    Yes but it was clearly established that Dave would show up anytime Hurley needed to rationalize his eating. He couldn't binge eat until the Dharma food showed up and he only recently started to feel guilty ( I personally think his guilt surfaced because he fell for Libby and in his mind, she can only fall for him if he is slimmer). Dave came back as his defense mechanism to rationalize his eating only when he felt guilty about it- had nothing to do with what was in the food or his meds.

    Didn't they dynamite it in an earlier episode?

    I don't think this has been mentioned yet - one of the numbers:
    23 other people were on the deck with Hurley when it collapsed.

    Again - why hasn't Locke told Jack about the map on the blast door?? If only the Losties would talk to each other...geez!

    I did notice though that Hurley only saw Dave each time he ate something or had to do with food. Maybe they drug people in different ways (whatever their weakness is)

    But Hurley was the last person on the plane and it was a last minute scramble to get on that flight.

    She would have had to be on the plane already and accurately guessed that Hurley would pick and make the flight.

    If she was really stalking him, she wouldn't get on a plane if she wasn't sure he was going to be on it.

    He's too busy telling Jack not to tell him what he can't do... or the new version of it, that he doesn't want a wheelchair.

    If you were Locke, would you tell Jack ANYTHING at this point?

    And that brings me back to the question: Was she or wasn't she on the plane? She could have heard the story about him getting on the plane from any of the "Tailees" and embellished for her "evil" purposes. I agree with stevieleej, until otherwise refuted, Libby=Other.

    He could have been taking Ambien and was just "sleep eating..."
