Richard Alpert: Over, uh, twenty years ago, a man named John Locke, he walked right into our camp. And he told me that he was going to be our leader. Now I've gone off the Island three times, to visit him. But he never seemed particularly special to me.
Jack Shephard: You said you had a question.
Richard Alpert: You know him? Locke?
Jack Shephard: Yeah. Yeah, I know him. And if I were you, I wouldn't give up on him.
