USA Today - Last but not least, how hot was that kiss? It’s about time some action developed between those two — but shame on S&K for not realizing cameras could be watching their every move.

MTV - 3. JOSH HOLLOWAY AS SAWYER… And then there’s Sawyer. Oh goodness, what a big hunk of love he is. Sure, we loved him a little more in the post-snarky con man, pre-Juliet phase (a girl can dream, but it’s harder to do that if the man she’s dreaming about is in love with another woman!) and we’re still crossing our fingers that it will be Sawyer that Kate picks at the end of the show

Damon Lindelof, writer/producer: Cool ideas, and it’s a pity that they’re never going to be part of the show, because our mothers wouldn’t care. At the risk of making this a running gag - but my mother will ask: Alvar who? I want to know when Kate and Sawyer are finally going to kiss! (Season 1)
Kate looks at Sawyer - and the plainness of her question makes it clear that she DOES care what he says and does:
KATE: Are you going? (“House of the Rising Sun” script, Season 1)
Damon Lindelof: Notice the sexual tension here as Kate holds the bottle rocket in her hand as she speaks to Sawyer. Don’t think that’s unintentional.
Dominic Monaghan, actor (Charlie): I think it’s going to go off in her hand if she’s not careful. Fire right in her face. Both barrels. Bang. They have a nice chemistry.
Lindelof: They do. (“The Moth” DVD commentary, Season 1)
Damon Lindelof: All I’ll say is that Confidence Man sports the first kiss ever on LOST — and boy, it does NOT disappoint. (Season 1)
Damon Lindelof: Yeah, she kissed Sawyer.
Carlton Cuse, writer/producer: And although she was compelled to kiss him it was not like she didn’t enjoy it when she did it.
Lindelof: Yeah, she sure looked like she enjoyed it!!!
Cuse: Yeah! (Season 1)
SAWYER: Happy to tell you… Soon as I get that kiss.
KATE: What? — Are you serious?
SAWYER: Baby, I’m tied to tree in the Jungle of Mystery and I just got tortured by a damn spinal surgeon and a genuine I-raqi. `Course I’m serious…
ON KATE. Yeah… But dammit if he doesn’t make a compelling argument. And dammit if there isn’t a strong contingent of women out there watching this show who WANT her to do it.
And we can see the moment in which she makes up her mind.
And here is the first kiss on LOST.
What makes it interesting is that even though it starts out as a chore — a necessity — somewhere about three or four seconds in, it becomes something ELSE. And just before it actually goes from something else to REAL…
Kate pulls away.
And we milk this delicious moment afterward for all it’sfear worth. And despite the insanity of the circumstances under which it happened, both of them felt something. Finally —
and when Sawyer talks to her now, it’s softer — that kiss did something to him — some of his swagger is gone — he’s just a man now… (“Confidence Man” script, Season 1)
KATE: You were a kid in 1976. Eight, maybe nine years old.
SAWYER: — Kate…
KATE: This letter wasn’t written to you. You wrote this letter.
Sawyer’s eyes DROP — holding them in a real TIGHT TWO-SHOT — the pure INTIMACY of the moment impossible to avoid —
KATE: Sawyer isn’t your name, is it?
And a LONG beat passes before —
SAWYER: (quietly) …It was his name.
CAMERA STARTING TO PUSH IN on him now as he tells this story. A story he has probably never told out loud —
SAWYER: … How you like that for tragedy. Became the man I was hunting. Became Sawyer.
And finally, he’s done. LOOKS to Kate —
And she is empathetic. Vulnerable. Something about this guy is so wounded, so HURT she can identify with it. It is an intense moment because it is so TRUE…
SAWYER: Don’t you feel sorry for me. (“Confidence Man” script, Season 1)
Kate settles down next to the fire, Sawyer on the opposite side. Two outlaws, camped out under the stars. Hell, if we didn’t know any better? We’d think this was downright romantic…
Now it’s his turn to look at her. And dammit if Sawyer ain’t charmed…
SAWYER: (declares) I have never kissed a man. (a beat) Now you drink. (another beat) `Cause you’ve kissed a man.
Subtext — That man being him… (“Outlaws” script, Season 1)
Kate takes this in then walks after him, drawn toward this complicated, troubled soul. Because she is one herself. (“Outlaws” script, Season 1)
J.J. Abrams, producer: I loved the dynamic between Sawyer and Kate. It proved to me that two people talking in the jungle could be as compelling as running from a monster. (Season 1)
Matt “Raggs” Ragghianti, writer: People honestly care whether Kate and Sawyer get together? Really? I hadn’t heard. Oh, except for the time my own mother called me during the middle of “THE OTHER 48 DAYS” and told me, “If you kill Sawyer before he gets together with Kate I will come down to your house and spank you like you were 4 years old.” But other than that… Stay tuned, we know you all are dying to find out what happens. Trust me. (Season 2)
Javier Grillo-Marxuach, writer/producer (asked if Sawyer and Kate were over): It’s over. Just like Ross and Rachel were over. And Dave and Maddie were over. And Han and Leia were over. And Rick and Ilsa were over. And Antony and Cleopatra were over. (Season 2)
Q: How does Sawyer choose nicknames?
Damon Lindelof: That depends on whether or not he likes you. He is inclined to nickname you based on the way that you look… The only endearing name he has for anyone is Kate. (Season 2)
Damon Lindelof: They’ll be thinking a lot about each other. I think it would be a real cop out if the raft washed up back where it set off from, and it was real easy. And it’s romantic when people are separated. It’s like The English Patient or Sleepless in Seattle, right? Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan don’t get together till the last five minutes of the movie, so you know it’ll be worth it. Trust me. (Season 2)
Evangeline Lilly, actor (Kate): Now this scene was great in that there was - I think Paul you left a lot open, you left me with a lot of freedom to play, play with the scene and try out whatever I needed to do…
[Sawyer waking up]
Paul Edwards, director: I love this scene… It’s sweet… Its sort of like you get it off your chest and that awakens him.
Lilly: Like I kiss the prince and he wakes up.
Edwards: Yeah exactly, you break through all the bullshit and you come clean and suddenly he’s resurrected. (“What Kate Did” DVD commentary, Season 2)
SAWYER: Hey, here’s an idea: Why not go to your buddy, Jack? He’s got himself a gun.
(snaps his fingers)
Oh, right — he’s still traipsing through the jungle with Kate.
ANA LUCIA: If you’ve got a problem ‘cause he’s making time with your girlfriend, don’t take it out on me, man.
Sawyer looks at her, his eyes cold — he can throw out wise ass remarks all day, but Ana just hit him where he LIVES. (“Two for the Road” script, Season 2)
Damon Lindelof: And concerning the relationship between these two people, I believe that Jack is attracted to Kate, but he knows deep down that she’ll never be what he needs, that she’ll never play the part, and that all things considered, she’s much more attracted to someone like Sawyer. (Season 3)
Damon Lindelof: I love, by the way, you know, she’s totally into Jack, but Sawyer’s powers do not work on Juliet.
Elizabeth Mitchell, actor (Juliet): Actually that’s really true isn’t it, and I wonder why that is, but it’s been that way from the very beginning. She’s kind of past the whole Sawyer thing. Like he’s so…
Lindelof: She is. He’s just not as interesting to her.
Mitchell: Yes, Jack is just far more interesting to her. Although she sees [Sawyer] for what he is, she gets it, he’s just not her thing. (“A Tale Of Two Cities” DVD commentary, Season 3)
Damon Lindelof: This is a great moment.
Elizabeth Mitchell: It’s beautiful, they do the most beautiful work together. Oh. And he doesn’t know what happened, and she’s in a dress! Oh, his heart’s breaking!…
SAWYER: Nice dress.
KATE: They made me wear it.
Lindelof: He doesn’t like that.
Mitchell: Oh my God! No! Oh!
SAWYER: You hungry?
Lindelof: See, this is a perfect example of awesome acting, because we write the dialogue here, but all the great stuff is happening around the lines, you know, it’s all these looks they’re throwing at each other.
Mitchell: Yeah, they did it, they’ve really got an amazing thing. They are so much fun to watch.
Lindelof: I like that she covers her mouth there, it’s kind of like, you know, it’s this sort of demure moment in the midst of utter insanity. (“A Tale Of Two Cities” DVD commentary, Season 3)
Damon Lindelof: Yes or No. Does Kate (Cuse:Yes) love Sawyer?
Lindelof: Well there you go.
Cuse: I didn’t even have to hear the whole question, I knew it was a Yes.
Lindelof: Excellent. All right, those are my two quick questions.
Lindelof: She said she did. (Season 3)
Carlton Cuse: I think that Kate is going to really be an interesting character this year because she is going to finally make a romantic choice and a commitment. This is a character who has been very afraid of commitment. I’m very excited to see the journey of that character this season. (Season 3)
Evangeline Lilly: The fact that she cared enough about this cowboy that drove her crazy to get back in that cage was incredibly significant. And I was sitting there reading and I was like “Yeah!” (“Every Man for Himself DVD commentary, Season 3)
Evangeline Lilly: I think one of the coolest things about this whole storyline that happened in the cages was that, um, I really adored… and I’ve been trying to work it out for awhile, because the cages were a really unique acting experience for me and what I realized after awhile, was that we, you know, Josh and I, were playing scenes that were more intimate than anything that we’d ever done on the show before, and yet we had to play them from a physical proximity that was so far away, so we were projecting intimacy across a yard, rather than…
Josh Holloway, actor (Sawyer): Yeah, that was interesting. We had to find a way to figure out that puzzle.
Lilly: Yeah. And I think that made it really intense, you know, as actors and hopefully on screen… because instead of the intimacy being played with a physical touch, or with, you know, physical intimacy, getting close to each other…. it all had to be in our voices, our eyes, you know, sending messages… (“I Do” DVD commentary, Season 3)
Carlton Cuse: I mean, thematically what we were trying to explore here was this notion of, you know, Kate’s ability to commit, and you know, we’ve established her as a character who likes to run, and it’s not just literally running as a fugitive, but also sort of running from difficult emotional situations… In the meantime, the parallel on the island is, she and, you know, you have Kate and Sawyer, who are these two characters who are obviously really, there’s this incredible thing happening between them, and yet both of them I think are afraid of, you know, this sort of intimacy and kind of connection, and they’re drawn to and also sort of afraid of the feelings that they have between each other at the same time.
Lilly: … And, you know, where she’s relatively free in the flashbacks to make it happen, she’s not in a cage, and she’s not being forced to do labor every day, it’s actually more difficult for her to stay in that house, and you know, cook breakfast, and be a little housewife, than it is for her to break rocks and work in a quarry and sleep in a cage. And there’s all these contrasts that happened that I just love, because I think the island represents who she truly is in her heart, and the flashback represents who she wishes she was. (“I Do” DVD commentary, Season 3)
Carlton Cuse: And it’s just so wonderful the way Sawyer kind of embodies these… he can be selfish and selfless, you know, moment to moment. And he has the potential to be so good in his heart, but then there’s this self-loathing that causes him to be self-destructive also, and those two things are sort of co-existing in this guy.
Josh Holloway: Yeah, and that is his.. the evolution of his character. Because those things don’t work anymore on this island. That’s what he’s being faced with throughout, is his own humanity, and he can’t… doesn’t know how to deal with that, so he’ll lash out in the only way he does know, and the way that he has learned to survive in society. But we’re not in society. [laughs] We’re on the island. So he’s faced with that constantly, which I love. Because he doesn’t know what to do with it, from moment to moment. (“I Do” DVD commentary, Season 3)
Carlton Cuse: This is such a big moment, obviously, in the show, for these characters to finally culminate their relationship…
Holloway: That was very important to us, as actors as well, and as characters. Because it had been so long, the payoff needed to be something special, so we talked before, Evi and I, and decided to really take our time, and really take moments in there and hope that that came across differently. And I feel like it did.
Cuse: It was great. I mean you think about it, you know, in a show, in a television show, to basically go fifty-five hours before these two characters who are in love with each other actually finally culminate and, you know, make love.
Evangeline Lilly: It’s beautiful.
Cuse: And I think it’s really amazing, and I think it was all the better for that. And I think just as a starting point to that relationship, and you know, really kind of deepening and existing on a different level, it was really a great scene… (“I Do” DVD commentary, Season 3)
Evangeline Lilly: I was actually surprised, and really pleased with the writing when I read that there was this sort of post-coital scene, because I felt like for it to be really clear that Kate and Sawyer didn’t just have a weak moment of lust where they gave in to their desires, but that they actually had realized, physically realized, something that was inside of them emotionally. I thought this scene provided that, and it proved that, and it supported what we were trying to show in, you know, the previous cage scene. It was really nice to read it and to feel like they were honoring that, they were honoring the emotion.
Carlton Cuse: Yeah, and just having Sawyer say ‘I love you too’ to Kate was such a huge moment for us on a writing level, because just that acknowledgement from him was such a hard thing for that character to get to that place.
Josh Holloway: Yeah, that was tricky, too, to play, because it so… can not be melodramatic, and it’s a fine line, how to bring that out…
Lilly: You know, again in contrast to the flashbacks, where she’s got this man who is doing the exact opposite. He’s, you know, really really heartfelt and intense and intimate about the way he will look her in the eye and say, ‘I love you Monica.’ And it’s just really sort of what you imagine the traditional idea of falling in love with someone being like. And then here on the island she’s got, you know, a guy who’s kind of throwing it out there flippantly while she’s not even looking at him, and it seems to mean so much more.
Cuse: Yeah. That’s cool. (“I Do” DVD commentary, Season 3)
Carlton Cuse: … And rain is really very metaphorically significant in our show. I mean, when rain shows up, bad things tend to happen.
Evangeline Lilly: Yeah.
Holloway: I remember this scene, and I was so tired at this point of being beaten down. I fought with Tucker, because I really felt like he needed to not just lay down and walk out of the cage and take it. So we made that scene more dramatic… the fight not to die more significant. And it came out of that emotion of constantly being in that, and being beaten down and not doing anything about it. So I really dig Tucker for having to put up with my emotion there and helping us find a way through it that made sense.
Lilly: Yeah. Well, I think Kate and Sawyer are both fighters. You know, neither of them…
Holloway: That was it. It just didn’t make sense that they would just lay down.
Lilly: Uh huh.
Holloway: So we had to really amp that a bit.
Lilly: And I think they also both for the first time, maybe in their lives, have something worth fighting for.
Lilly: And that’s what kind of breaks my heart in this scene, is that I think Kate displays some of the girliest qualities you ever see her display, in this scene. She’s kind of weak and whimpery about the whole thing, but I… for me, where that came from was that ‘I just for the first time, maybe ever, finally connected to someone, and feel like I have something here, and something worth fighting for and worth living for, and now you’re gonna take it away.’ And I feel like Sawyer is, again, in the same situation, where this is the first time, maybe ever in his life, where he’s found someone who he can love. And now he’s about to be killed. (“I Do” DVD commentary, Season 3)
Chris Nelson, editor: Episode six, “I Do”, is my favorite. I was really happy with the prelude to the love scene. What you see now is exactly the way I put it together. I changed one thing where Damon saw a mismatch, but otherwise it was exactly the same. It was really difficult. There were two cameras, but they didn’t match the same way through the series of takes. I’ve discovered that the sexual tension that happens beforehand is where the power is - how long you keep them from touching or kissing. The prelude is where the hot part is. I was very fearful of it. The dailies didn’t feel like the finished product. It was faster and all the moments of them looking at each other weren’t there. A lot of times I will cut a scene and rough it out, but because of matching, I had to be happy with each cut. I had to work it really slowly but I was really happy with it. (Season 3)
Carlton Cuse: But let’s talk about Kate hooking up with Sawyer, just for a sec.
Damon Lindelof: Sure, I’d love to…
Cuse: Was this choice… definitive?
Lindelof: How much clearer could you be about her choice? I mean, who’s watching it and going, ‘I’m not sure that she picked Sawyer, I think maybe she went with Jack there.’ She’s had sex with him.
Cuse: And yet- And yet people actually do, you know, I think certain people maybe just don’t value the act of sex as being that important…
Lindelof: I will say that when you are curled up naked on someone’s chest… you’ve made your choice. (Season 3)
Gregg Nations, writer/producer: I watched that, too, and I came away thinking that they really did give the answer that Kate’s choice was Sawyer. It wasn’t just a sexual choice but an emotional choice, too. She did make a commitment, and it’s a difficult thing for her. (Season 3)
Sawyer going out on a ledge, telling her, in his own messed up way, that he was PROTECTING HER. and the heat is too strong. they’re too close together. the chemistry both of them have been fighting officially COMBUSTS and KATE KISSES SAWYER. Long and Hard. finally it ends…
AND Sawyer ? hell, HE KISSES HER RIGHT BACK, and it doesn’t end there as she STUMBLES INTO HIS CAGE.
Before we know it, Sawyer’s grabbing Kate’s tank top and pulling it over her head as she starts unbuttoning his shirt. they move further into Sawyer’s cage, oblivious to everything but THIS MOMENT…
SAWYER: So lemme ask you somethin’, Freckles… When Blockhead was beatin’ on me, and you said “I love you” that was just to get him to stop, right …?
[Kate freezes. She isn’t sure what she should say here. In truth she’s feeling everything for Sawyer but is afraid if she admits it, puts it out there, it will scare him off. And Sawyer? Before she can even respond—]
SAWYER: I love you, too.
[But even though he tosses it off like it’s not a big deal— it’s the most sincere thing he’s ever said in his entire life. Kate’s heart lifts. And for this one moment, in time, they are COMPLETELY CONNECTED.] (“I Do” script, Season 3)
Gregg Nations: When Damon said that Kate was drawn to Sawyer, I think he was referring to their emotional natures. They are very similar types of people and probably understand each other on a deeper level than even they would want to acknowledge. Of course both of them are very attractive people, but their attraction to each other is far deeper than that… I think of them as complex people whose behavior and motivations are probably unknown to either of them. They don’t seem to be very self-actualized people — they just react. My experience of relationships is that once you’re in one, it’s not always easy. It’s a lot of work, and there can be a lot of miscommunication and hidden agendas (nothing major like cheating on someone but about minor things that the other person is usually afraid of admitting). When Kate goes to Sawyer crying, I read that more as her desiring some sort of emotional connection. It was primarily motivated by seeing Jack with Juliet, but it doesn’t mean she isn’t interested in Sawyer. If she were really using someone, she would gone to any guy in the camp and slept with him. But she didn’t. So when The Brig rolls around, she’s with Sawyer in his tent. What’s there to miss? They are together and have been together. They’re trying to make it as a couple the best way they know how. Then Sawyer has his experience in the Black Rock. He just murdered a man. It changed him. I’m sure he wasn’t in the mood to explain himself to Kate or try to reassure her everything was okay between them. Kate noticed something was wrong with him immediately… Sawyer has pushed Kate away from him, and she’s understandably not happy about that. I have never found either Kate or Sawyer to be upfront about their feelings. Sharing what is going on between them is not something they do well at all. This is not a couple that would go to couples therapy. I don’t see their relationship only as lust or sex. I see it as two troubled people trying to work it out the best way they know how. They just don’t have a good set of tools to use or to communicate with each other. (Season 3)
Damon Lindelof: Then we have Sawyer and Kate who are just moving into a new phase of their relationship where the stakes are so much higher, and that of course scares the hell out of both of them. And then there’s also Jack and Juliet, who are sort of this new, tentative romance that’s just starting out, and there should be lots to explore there, so that’s really fun. I would say romance won’t be so much the focus of Season 4, but I don’t think people will be disappointed. (Season 4)
Damon Lindelof: Romance is always blooming on and off the island. And Just for you, I hereby promise you one of the most spectacular kisses you’ve ever see on the show in this year’s finale. (Season 4)
Carlton Cuse: I can disclose no more details other than to say it’s one of my favorite moments of the whole series so far. (Season 4)
Evangeline Lilly: But you made love to me in the cage! You can’t go! (“The Beginning Of The End” DVD commentary, Season 4)
Sawyer looks at the others and makes a decision. He leans over to Kate, whispers something in her ear, and then kisses Kate the kind of kiss that stops time. It’s nothing short of spectacular. (“There’s No Place Like Home” script, Season 4)
Damon Lindelof: And most importantly we know that Kate and Jack’s future relationship in fact that he proposes to her, she accepts his proposal, all comes apart because she is doing something for Sawyer and lying to Jack about it. And this scene, this is the last time Kate and Sawyer see each other before she leaves the island, so whatever it is he whispers to her obviously is what sort of catalyzes and ultimately destroys her relationship with Jack. As a result of that relationship being destroyed Jack starts popping pills and seeing his father and all these things, so this scene, Sawyer whispering to Kate actually is sort of a major critical plot. (“There’s No Place Like Home” DVD commentary, Season 4)
Carlton Cuse: Making the decision to jump was such a cathartic moment for Sawyer, and such a culmination of his journey so far on the series – here he was giving up his girl and his chance to return to the outside world… I felt a rush of emotions as Sawyer whispers his secret to Kate, kisses her, and then leaps from the open door, free falling 100 feet into the water. I almost forgot I was typing as I watched Sawyer bobbing there in the ocean as the chopper vanished from sight. (Season 4)
Carlton Cuse: Our characters have these encounters with things that took place in the island’s past, and none is more significant than Sawyer wandering through the jungle and seeing Kate helping Claire give birth. This is an incredibly powerful, emotional moment for him. (Season 5)
All Sawyer’s efforts to repress his feelings for Kate go out the proverbial window. Because ACTUALLY SEEING HER HERE ON THE ISLAND once again FLOODS HIM WITH TOTAL LONGING FOR HER. He just STARES as Kate pleads with Claire…
Sawyer is beyond moved by the sight of the woman he loves, doing this incredible thing for Claire — who is doing something pretty incredible herself.
Now we’re PUSHING IN ON SAWYER. He knows he’s going bye-bye and he’s not going to see Kate again until God-knows-when. He DRINKS HER IN WITH HIS EYES, WET WITH LONGING. REGRET. SADNESS. AS THE RISING LIGHT WASHES HER COMPLETELY FROM HIS SIGHT. (“The Little Prince” script, Season 5)
Damon Lindelof: We will say we haven’t seen the last of Sawyer and Kate this season. Not by a long shot. (Season 5)
Damon Lindelof: Kate is raising Claire’s son Aaron as her own. She knows that Claire, who’s Aaron’s mother, is now gone, and the only way that she can protect Aaron is to say that he is hers. And we later realize Kate is still emotionally reeling from Sawyer’s decision to jump off of the helicopter. This man that she really loved left her [Sawyer: “I wanted to make sure she… got back to the boat”, Kate: “He jumped so that we could make it to the boat”]… She’s trying to heal the emotional scar left by Sawyer taking himself out of the equation. And ever since that moment Jack has wondered, What did he say to her? And the fact that he still has this jealousy, What does this mean for them? (Season 5)
Damon Lindelof: Kate doesn’t realize that she’s replacing the wound left by Sawyer with Aaron. Ironically it’s pointed out to her by an ex-girlfriend of Sawyer’s. So Kate has a change of heart, she returns Aaron to his grandmother. (Season 5)
Damon Lindelof: Kate and Jack are picking up their pieces, but she still pines for Sawyer. Sawyer can only wait for so long. (Season 5)
Damon Lindelof: I think [she]’s a little concerned that Sawyer’s living in some sort of fantasy world with Juliet.
Carlton Cuse: Hmmm.
Lindelof: We’ll see how long that lasts. We’re not sure.
Cuse: We’re not sure.
Lindelof: Fantasies have a way of—
Cuse: Being fantasies. That’s why they’re called fantasies.
Lindelof: Precisely. (Season 5)
Damon Lindelof: There’s none of the sort of emotional fireworks that existed between he and Kate. But now Kate’s back and as soon as they see each other, that chemistry just locks in for both of them.
Carlton Cuse: And that throws a big wrench in the mechanism, doesn’t it?
Lindelof: Huge. (Season 5)
Carlton Cuse: By not having the audience talk about the mythology, then people are engaged in: “Is Kate going to end up with Sawyer?” (Season 6, a month before the finale)
Damon Lindelof’s mother: I think Jack is supposed to stay on the island. He’s going to be the keeper of the light, because what’s waiting for him? Kate’s going to marry Sawyer, if my son has a heart. (Season 6, the day before the finale)
Season 1 -
KATE: You decided to join us.
SAWYER: I’m a complex guy, sweetheart.
SAWYER: I’ve been with girls like you.
KATE: Not girls exactly like me.
KATE: Put your gun back in your pants, Sawyer.
SAWYER (protecting KATE from the boar): I’m going to shed some light on this thing.
SAWYER (to KATE): The mighty huntress returns. What’s for dinner, hon?
SAWYER: It’s about time.
KATE: For what?
SAWYER: I made this birthday wish four years ago.
SAWYER: Water has no value, Freckles. It’s gonna rain sooner or later. And hell, I’m an optimist.
SAWYER: Well, well, well, if ain’t the belle of the ball… I just call ‘em how I see ‘em, Freckles.
KATE: Are you going?
SAWYER: That’s the real trick, isn’t it?…
KATE: You still haven’t answered my question.
SAWYER: You didn’t answer mine… and I asked first.
SAWYER (to JACK about KATE): I wouldn’t mind sharing a few things with her myself!
SAWYER: Well, you got me pegged, don’t you?
KATE: I get it now. You don’t want off this Island because there’s nothing for you to go back for. Nobody you miss. And no one misses you.
SAWYER: All you had to do was say please.
SAWYER: I just thank the good lord I’ve got you here to keep reminding me.
KATE: It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it.
SAWYER: Hell of a book. It’s about bunnies…
KATE: Must be cold without your trunks.
SAWYER: How about you come a little closer and warm me up?
KATE (to JACK about SAWYER): He says we have a connection.
KATE: What do you want, Sawyer?
SAWYER: Freckles, I got so many answers to that question, I wouldn’t even know where to start… What do I want… A kiss ought to do it… A kiss. From you. Right now.
KATE: I’ve seen you, you know… I’ve seen the expression on your face…
SAWYER: You think you understand me?
SAWYER (to JACK about KATE): The only person I’ll tell is her.
SAWYER: Happy to tell you, as soon as I get that kiss.
KATE: Are you serious?
SAWYER: Baby, I am tied to a tree in the jungle of mystery. I just got tortured by a damn spinal surgeon and a genuine Iraqi. Of course I’m serious… Hell, it’s only first base. Lucky for you I ain’t greedy…
SAWYER: Tell him to let go, Freckles. We already made out. What else do I got to live for?
KATE: You’re lucky to be alive… I read it again and again… The thing that I keep coming back around to is that you want to be hated. Then I looked at the envelope - America’s bicentennial, Knoxville, TN. You were just a kid, 8, maybe 9 years old.
KATE: This letter wasn’t written to you. You wrote this letter. Your name is not Sawyer, is it?
SAWYER: It was his name. He was a confidence man… I became the man I was hunting. Became Sawyer… Don’t you feel sorry for me.
JACK: Nobody wants anything to do with you.
SAWYER (to JACK about KATE): She does.
KATE: If you want to come, you should just say.
SAWYER: I think I’ll pass on that, Freckles. Not big on crowds. And let’s face it, the crowd’s not too hot on me, either.
KATE: One outcast to another, I’d think about making more of an effort.
SAWYER: Duly noted!
SAWYER: I have two tubes of sunscreen and a flashlight says he chokes.
KATE: I’ll take that action.
SAWYER: I was protecting you.
KATE: From what, southern perverts?
SAWYER: Whatever… What the hell are you doing out here anyway? You shouldn’t be out here alone, not after what happened.
KATE: I’m fine, I can take care of myself.
SAWYER: Of course! I don’t need protecting. I can take care of myself. Me Kate. Me throw rocks.
SAWYER: Come on, Freckles, all we been through on this damn island, don’t we deserve something good?
SAWYER: Something you wanted to tell me about this little suitcase, Freckles?
SAWYER: I hate to bicker about positions, sweetheart, but I think you’re the one on top… If you wanted to play rough, all you had to do was say so… Want to try for it again?
SAWYER: Hell, Freckles, I knew you wanted it, I just didn’t know how bad.
SAWYER (to KATE): I don’t really care what it is. What’s burning me up is why it means so much to you.
KATE: I want to come.
SAWYER: How much ammo you got?
JACK: 100 rounds give or take.
SAWYER: All 9’s, right? 9 millimeters . Guns?
JACK: Yeah, why?
SAWYER: Because, if the lady wants to come… Five guns are better than four.
KATE (to JACK about SAWYER): I speak his language.
KATE: A boar wouldn’t just attack you for no reason.
SAWYER: Thank you, boar expert.
SAWYER: Since when do you care?
KATE: I don’t.
KATE: Got any more of those?
SAWYER: All right, Sassafras, but if you want to drink, you’ve got to play.
SAWYER: Think of it as a way to get to know each other… I never kissed a man. Now you drink, because you’ve kissed a man.
SAWYER: I’ve never been in love.
KATE: You’ve never been in love?
SAWYER: I ain’t drinking, am I?
KATE: I’ve never had a one night stand. Bottoms up, sailor!
SAWYER: I got to drink for each one?… I’ve never been married.
KATE: Didn’t last very long… I never blamed a boar for all my problems.
SAWYER: I never cared about having carte blanche because I just wanted to spend some time with the only other person on this island that just don’t belong.
KATE: I never carried a letter around for 20 years because I couldn’t get over my baggage.
SAWYER: I never killed a man. [They both drink.] Well… looks like we got something in common after all.
KATE (to SAWYER): You OK? You were shaking.
KATE: Maybe it’s got your scent, doesn’t like your cologne?
SAWYER: I don’t wear cologne.
KATE: Yes, you do.
KATE (to SUN about SAWYER): What was that all about?
SUN: He has headaches…
KATE: That’s it. Get up. You’re going to see Jack.
SAWYER: Do I get a lollipop?
SAWYER (to KATE): You need anything else? I could come with you.
KATE: You here to say sorry, Sawyer?
SAWYER: Sorry don’t suit me. You cornered me, Freckles, I did what I had to…
KATE: Be safe, Sawyer.
KATE (to CHARLIE about SAWYER): Have you seen Sawyer?
Season 2 -
SUN: Claire found the bottle. The one with the messages inside. The one from the raft.
KATE: Where is it?
SUN: What are you doing?
KATE (to SUN about SAWYER): We didn’t, uh… I didn’t say goodbye.
KATE: Sawyer. It’s Kate. You need to listen to me, OK? The only way that you are going to get better is if you take this pill. So I want you to swallow it, OK?
KATE: Hey. Can you hear me? You’re going to be all right. You’re home.
SAWYER (about KATE): Where is she? I love her! I love her!
KATE (to SAWYER): When you wake up you’re going to get a kick out of me feeding you like a baby.
SAWYER: Am I in a bunk bed?
KATE: Yeah, you’re in a bunk bed.
SAWYER: Are we saved?
KATE: No, Sawyer. Not yet.
SAWYER (to KATE): Home sweet home.
SAWYER: What do you keep smiling at?
KATE: You need a haircut!
KATE: You see that?
SAWYER: If you mean the big ass horse standing in the middle of the jungle, then yeah… Do you know that horse, Freckles?
KATE: Yeah. I do.
SAWYER: A little close to the ear, Freckles.
KATE: Everyone loves you now.
SAWYER: Did you just throw a banana at me?
KATE: Couldn’t find any rocks.
SAWYER: There are nicer ways to wake a man up, Freckles.
KATE: Come on, it’s time to go get your bandages changed…
SAWYER: Give me a hand?… Thanks.
SAWYER (to TOM about KATE): If you touch a hair on her head…
SAWYER (to KATE about JACK): Don’t beat yourself up, Freckles. If he’d told me to stay behind I’d have done the same damned thing.
KATE: I like what you’ve done with the place.
SAWYER: Maid’s day off.
KATE: I know you’re hard up for new reading material.
SAWYER: Well, as much as I’d like to learn to feather my hair, I lost my damn glasses on the raft. You want to read it to me?
SAWYER: Get under here, Freckles!
KATE: I like the rain!
KATE: I think you want people to hate you.
SAWYER: Good thing you don’t hate me, Freckles.
KATE: Why do you have to do this?
SAWYER: You run. I con. A tiger don’t change their stripes.
SAWYER: Well, Thelma, seeing as I got all the guns, I do get to ask why.
KATE: Just give me a gun, Sawyer.
SAWYER: I found a new pair of glasses damn near my prescription. You like them?
KATE: I’m going into the jungle to track down Rousseau. Claire thinks the baby is really sick.
SAWYER: What do you think?
KATE: I think she’s a little too worried. But she’s going after Rousseau with or without me.
SAWYER: No boys allowed, huh? All right, what do you want, 9 millimeter or rifle?
KATE: So he just attacked you, huh?
SAWYER: Try to contain yourself, Freckles.
KATE: I’m worried. You look like you got your ass kicked.
SAWYER: Don’t you got an adventure to get to? I think Timmy fell down a well over that way.
ANA (to SAWYER about KATE): If you’ve got a problem because he’s making time with your girlfriend, don’t take it out on me, man.
[SAWYER comforts KATE after the deaths of ANA and LIBBY.]
SAWYER (to JACK about KATE): So what happened out there in the jungle?… I ain’t talking about Mike. You and Freckles — before you found him you all were gone all night.
SAWYER: Let’s go, Freckles.
KATE: Don’t even think about it. It’s a trap. A net. Rousseau’s got them all over the island… What?
SAWYER: When the doc told me you all got caught in a net, I thought he meant… something else.
SAWYER: What do you think, Freckles?…
KATE: Just keep moving, we’re being followed… In about five seconds I’m going to turn the tables on them. You in?
Season 3 -
SAWYER: You OK, Freckles?
KATE: Yeah. You?
SAWYER: Just swell. I requested that cage, but whatever… Nice dress.
KATE: They made me wear it.
SAWYER: You hungry?
KATE: Nice alarm clock.
SAWYER: I’ve woken up to worse. Want a half a fish biscuit?
KATE: You expect me to work in this dress?
PICKETT: You can take it off if you want.
[SAWYER looks at KATE like that’s a good idea. KATE looks back.]
SAWYER (to PICKETT): How dare you?
SAWYER: Having fun yet, Freckles?
KATE: Quit staring at my ass.
SAWYER: Give me something else to stare at.
[SAWYER kisses KATE.]
KATE: Are you OK?
SAWYER: Never better.
KATE: What the hell were you thinking?
SAWYER: I couldn’t help myself, you just looked so darned cute swinging that pick-axe… Chain gang looks good on you, Freckles.
KATE: Did you see the look on their faces when you got a hold of that rifle?
SAWYER: That blonde who had a gun pointed at you, she would have shot you, no problem.
KATE: Why did she call you James?
SAWYER: Because that’s my name… I noticed something else, too. You taste like strawberries.
KATE: You taste like fish biscuits…
SAWYER: Well, Shortcake, now we wait for these bastards to make a mistake.
SAWYER: What, you think I’m crazy?
KATE: No, I’m actually impressed.
SAWYER: So wipe the stars out of your eyes, sweetheart, we’re going to do this… We’ve got to take care of us. It’s every man for himself, Freckles.
BEN: Oh, and one other thing. Kate.
SAWYER: You touch her, I swear…
BEN: You tell her what we did, what we put in you - that we’re watching you - you tell her any of these things - we’ll put one in her, too.
KATE: Sawyer, are you OK?… Talk to me, what happened?
SAWYER: Look, I told you, nothing happened. So quit asking.
KATE: Turn around.
KATE: What’s that?
SAWYER: It’s just my watch, it’s busted.
KATE: When did you get a watch?
SAWYER: Look, I don’t tell you everything. Just leave me alone, damn it. Put some clothes on!
KATE (to PICKETT about SAWYER): I love him! I love him!
KATE: Are you OK?
SAWYER: Dandy. Guy hits like a girl. No offense.
KATE: Why did he do that?
SAWYER: Hell if I know.
SAWYER: Hang on a second, Freckles.
KATE: I don’t know what they did to you, but I know you’re scared enough to lie about it and that scares me more than anything they’ve done to us before.
SAWYER: Wait! What are you doing? Don’t!
KATE: I’m not leaving you, Sawyer.
SAWYER: You’ve got to go! You’ve got to leave me! Run! Run!
KATE: What did they do to you?
SAWYER: Will you go!
KATE: What is that thing?
SAWYER: Will you run! Just go. It’s every man for himself. Run! Hurry!
[KATE gets back into her cage.]
SAWYER: What the hell are you doing? Kate!… Damn it, Freckles, don’t!
BEN (to SAWYER about KATE): Funny thing is, us telling you about the pacemaker wasn’t what kept you in line. It was when I threatened her. You work so hard to make her think you don’t care - that you don’t need her.
SAWYER: Hey yourself.
KATE: I thought you had to pull the lever.
SAWYER: I know how to get a damn fish biscuit.
KATE: Get me one.
SAWYER: What, you trying to keep me feeling productive?
SAWYER: Just go, Freckles. Man wants to give me a day off, let him give me a day off.
KATE: No, Sawyer, we’re a team. You break the rocks, I haul them.
ALEX (to KATE about SAWYER): Let me go! Listen, whatever they say, don’t believe them! They’re gonna kill your boyfriend just like they killed mine!
[SAWYER and KATE look at each other.]
KATE (to JACK about SAWYER): They’re going to kill Sawyer!
JACK: And you believe them?
KATE: I have to.
JULIET (to KATE about SAWYER): Sawyer. You really care about him.
PICKETT (to SAWYER about KATE): You got anything you want to say to your girl, you best say it tonight.
SAWYER (to KATE, who is crying): And how was your day, honey?
KATE (about JACK): I told him he had to.
SAWYER: Why the hell would you do something so stupid?
KATE: To save your life.
SAWYER: My life don’t need saving.
KATE: You want to die? Cause that’s what’s gonna happen. Pickett is just waiting for his chance. I’ve seen him look at you.
SAWYER: Damn it, Freckles, stay put.
KATE: And you know what he’s going to do. So don’t pretend, like you don’t care.
SAWYER: Get down, Freckles. We’ve already been through this.
KATE: Shut up, James!
SAWYER: We ain’t on our island. We’re on another island, like Alcatraz, couple miles off shore. So unless you’re a mermaid, or you got a boat, there ain’t no point.
KATE: When were you planning on telling me this?
KATE: Why not? Why wouldn’t you?
SAWYER: Because I wanted you to believe that we had a damn chance.
[SAWYER and KATE kiss and make love.]
SAWYER: Let me ask you something, Freckles. When Blockhead was beating on me, and you said “I love you” that was just to get him to stop, right?
[KATE kisses SAWYER.]
SAWYER: I love you, too.
SAWYER and KATE wake up together in his cage.
KATE (to PICKETT about SAWYER): Don’t, please! You don’t have to do this…
PICKETT: Step away!
PICKETT: You let go or I do her too! Let go!
KATE: Don’t you let go! Don’t even think about it Sawyer, you fight! No! Sawyer, NO!! No, NO!! Sawyer, PLEASE! You get your hands off of him!
PICKETT: Down on your knees.
KATE (to PICKETT about SAWYER): Please! I will do anything you want!
PICKETT: I want you to watch!
SAWYER: Close your eyes, Freckles.
KATE: Stand up!
SAWYER: Close your eyes!
KATE: Don’t you give up! NO! NO! NO!
KATE [protecting SAWYER from PICKETT]: No!
SAWYER: Damn good con, Freckles, I almost believed you were going to shoot that boy.
KATE: It wasn’t a con.
SAWYER (to KARL about KATE): Every now and again, there’s one. One you name dumb stars with.
SAWYER: Try to contain your excitement, Freckles.
KATE: On the count of three, ready…
SAWYER: Ow! I thought you said three!
KATE: Well, anticipation is the worst part, I thought I would spare you.
KATE: You know, all you have to say is sorry. We could start again - give each other a clean slate.
SAWYER: Slate. Like on Little House?
KATE: You call it Little House?… What are we even talking about?
SAWYER: We ain’t talking about nothing.
SAWYER: And I ain’t got nothing to be sorry about.
SAWYER (to HURLEY about KATE): Kate’s with me.
SAWYER: I’m sorry.
JIN: I’m sorry.
SAWYER: OK, nice. Keep it coming.
JIN: You were right.
SAWYER: OK. That’s two. Hit me.
JIN: Those pants don’t make you look fat.
SAWYER: Now you got it - only three things a woman needs to hear.
SAWYER (to HURLEY about KATE): Hey, you seen Kate around?
HURLEY (to SAWYER about KATE): She’ll be OK, dude - Kate. I know you’re worried about her.
[SAWYER and KATE embrace when KATE returns.]
SAWYER: Hey, Freckles! You home?
SAWYER: How about a little afternoon delight?… Freckles, wait. You need me to make you a mix tape?
[KATE kisses SAWYER.]
KATE: Shut up and don’t talk…
SAWYER: You got it.
[SAWYER and KATE make love.]
KATE: What’s that?
SAWYER: Your mix tape.
KATE: The Best of Phil Collins, huh?
SAWYER: Don’t get picky. If Bernard asks, I don’t know a thing about it.
KATE: Thanks, James.
SAWYER: You want me to walk you home?
KATE: That is so romantic!
[SAWYER and KATE kiss.]
SAYID (to SAWYER): Play her the tape!
KATE (to SAWYER): What tape?…
BEN (on the tape, about KATE): We won’t have time to run Austen’s sample, so if you determine that she or anyone else is pregnant, mark their tents, and we’ll take them too.
KATE: What’s the matter with you? Why don’t you just tell me what happened?
[KATE splashes SAWYER.]
SAWYER: What did you do that for?
KATE: To wake you up! Ever since you got that tape from Locke it’s like you’ve been sleepwalking. You don’t care about our friends, fine, but its like you don’t care about anything anymore. And since when did you start calling me Kate?… You know, they sent Juliet to check out Sun, but she was there to check and see if I’m pregnant too.
JACK (to KATE about SAWYER): He didn’t mean it, you know. Sawyer. When he said that he didn’t want you to go with him, he didn’t mean it.
Season 4 -
KATE: What are you doing?
SAWYER: Same thing I’ve always done, Kate. Surviving.
BEN (to SAWYER about KATE): Why’d you leave Kate behind?… I think Kate was really upset when you made your choice to come with us.
JACK: I don’t trust Locke.
KATE: So what’s preventing him from doing to me what he did to Naomi?
JACK (to KATE about SAWYER): Sawyer won’t let him.
KATE: So what, I’m your prisoner?
SAWYER: If that sort of thing turns you on.
SAWYER: Look around us, Freckles! We’ve got roofs over our heads…
KATE: How long, Sawyer?
SAWYER: Why don’t we find out?
KATE: Hey Hurley.
HURLEY: Hey Kate.
[HURLEY winks at SAWYER.]
SAWYER: Got something in your eye, Hugo?
SAWYER (to LOCKE about KATE): I need your word you ain’t going to do nothing to her.
SAWYER: Oh hey, Freckles. You OK?
KATE: He wants me gone by tomorrow.
SAWYER: What, he banished you? Well, I unbanish you. You can stay right here. This is my house… You’re going to be all right. I’ll keep you safe.
[SAWYER and KATE kiss.]
[KATE wakes SAWYER with kisses.]
SAWYER: You still think you might be pregnant.
KATE: I’m not pregnant… Would it have been the worst thing in the world?
SAWYER (to KATE about CLAIRE): She just walked off in the middle of the night. We looked for her for a day but she was just gone. [He gives AARON to KATE.]
SAWYER: Did he say something to tick you off, Freckles?
KATE: I didn’t kill that one.
SAWYER: Let’s go, Freckles! We’ve seen enough of this rock.
[SAWYER and KATE kiss.]
SAWYER: Just do it, Freckles.
[SAWYER jumps to save KATE.]
KATE (to JACK about SAWYER): I was doing something for him. For Sawyer. I made him a promise.
Season 5 -
KATE (to JACK about SAWYER): I can’t lose him, too.
JACK: Sawyer’s not dead.
KATE: No… but he’s gone.
SAWYER (to JULIET about KATE): I wanted to make sure she… I wanted to make sure they got back to the boat.
KATE (to CASSIDY about SAWYER): He jumped so that we could make it to the boat.
KATE (to CASSIDY about AARON): He needed me.
CASSIDY: You needed him. Sawyer broke your heart, how else were you supposed to fix it?
KATE (to CLAIRE’S MOTHER about AARON/SAWYER subtext): Because I needed him.
LOCKE (to SAWYER about KATE): Don’t you want them to come back, James? Don’t you want her to come back?
SAWYER (to LOCKE about KATE): It doesn’t matter what I want.
SAWYER (to JULIET about KATE): I was close enough to touch her.
SAWYER (to FARADAY about KATE): Everybody I care about just blew up on your damn boat. I know what I can’t change.
JIN: How long do we look, James?
SAWYER (to JIN about KATE): As long as it takes.
SAWYER (to HORACE about KATE): I’d lay in bed every night wondering if I’d ever stop thinking about her… She’s just gone, and she ain’t never coming back.
[SAWYER and KATE look at each other, then embrace.]
SAWYER: Good to see you, Kate.
KATE: You too, James.
SAWYER (to KATE): Put these on.
[SAWYER and KATE look at each other as he puts the lei around her.]
[SAWYER and KATE look at each other across the courtyard.]
SAWYER: Why’d you all come back? Why, Kate?
KATE: I don’t know why everyone else came back. I just know why I did.
SAWYER: Damn it, Freckles. I ain’t here to stop you. I’m here to help you.
KATE (about CLEMENTINE): Oh, she’s beautiful. Looks just like you when she smiles.
SAWYER (to KATE about joining his escape party): Come with us, Freckles!
[SAWYER and KATE look at each other.]
RADINSKY (to SAWYER about KATE): So why don’t you tell me where your girlfriend took the boy?
[SAWYER looks at KATE in the monitor.]
SAWYER (as KATE enters the sub): Hey.
[SAWYER and KATE look at each other.]
KATE: I came back to get you.
SAWYER: What, you got a compass?
KATE: No, do you?
BERNARD: We just care about being together. That’s all that matters in the end.
[SAWYER looks at KATE.]
JULIET (to SAWYER about KATE): I changed my mind when I saw you look at her.
Season 6 -
KATE: Hey! You all right?
KATE (to DOGEN about SAWYER): I will bring him back and I can make him stay.
ALDO (to KATE about SAWYER): After you, princess. So what’s your strategy for bringing your boyfriend back?
JIN: Where are you going?
KATE: Catching up with Sawyer.
JIN: So you never planned to bring him back to the temple.
JIN: Who do you care about, Kate? Once you catch up with Sawyer, then what?
KATE (to JIN about SAWYER): I guess we’ll figure that out together.
KATE: I was worried about you.
SAWYER (about JULIET and JACK): I didn’t want to be alone. You understand that, right?
KATE: I’ll be sure to leave a trail so you can follow us.
SAWYER: Hi yourself.
[SAWYER fondles KATE’S dress.]
SAWYER (returning to KATE): What’s for dinner?
KATE: Rabbit. I think.
SAWYER: Good, I’m starving.
SAWYER: You and me are getting the hell off this island… We ain’t taking the plane, Freckles, we’re taking the sub.
KATE: Why aren’t you worried, James?
SAWYER: I am worried. Just really good at pretending I ain’t.
SAWYER: How about it, Freckles? Know anything about sailing?
KATE: I know enough.
SAWYER (to JACK about CLAIRE threatening KATE): She gave up her ticket when she tried to kill Kate. And I ain’t going to let that happen again.
KATE: When were you planning on telling me this?
SAWYER: Wait a damn second.
KATE: Sawyer, shut up. She’s coming or I’m not.
JIN (to SUN): We’ll never be apart again. I promise you.
[SAWYER looks at KATE.]
WIDMARK (to SAWYER about KATE): It doesn’t matter to me whether she lives or dies.
KATE: Don’t listen to him.
[SAWYER puts down the gun.]
SAWYER (protecting KATE from the smoke monster): He doesn’t need you, Kate.
[SAWYER and KATE comfort each other after the deaths of SUN and JIN.]
[SAWYER takes care of KATE.]
SAWYER: I’d ask you along, but that would take all the fun out of me telling you you can’t come.
KATE: I guess I’ll just have to resist the urge to follow you anyway.
KATE (following SAWYER): What now?
SAWYER: We jump.
