I don't think that he was INTENTIONALLY faking. Taking a scientific approach, whatever psychological issue that led to him being unable to use his legs reasserted itself when he became aware of the potential danger - which he saw in his vision. Taking a mystical approach, the island didn't want him going to the plane, so it "took away" his ability to walk.

Personally I go for the scientific explanation. Again, this isn't an intentional phenomenon, but can be influenced by psychological distress. Term for the day: Conversion Disorder.

Maybe, but he burned his feet earlier. I wouldn't do that unless I couldn't feel it.

Oh, and in the "anything can be a clue" category, Jack and the fiance were playing "Heart and Soul" at the piano...

So that could mean...nah, I got nothing...

I think locke knew that boone was going to die, because of his vision "Theresa goes up the stairs, theresa goes down the stairs" Once boone told him that theresa died, from falling down the stairs he knew that boone would likely die by climbing up to the plane.

I also think that th island prevented locke from going up himself, by taking away the use of his legs.

How do you pronounce the word Goth? You don't pronounce it "gawth?"

The whole reason the line was funny and in perfect character for Hurley is because Jack was very pale and "Goths" wear white make-up to look like that intentionally.

OK, dead horse beaten sufficiently. Carry on.

I subscribe to EW and will have to skip the Lost stuff in this issue. - EW has had a bad habit lately of giving too much away without spoiler warnings. Even if they don't come right out and say certain plot points, they often give so many clues that you'd have to be an idiot to not figure them out.

An interesting observation from a friend of mine here at school: Maybe the island killed Boone because he made contact with the outside world. We've already seen people die when swimming out too far. The island "wants" them to stay and is doing whatever it can to prevent them from leaving. It will be interesting to see what happens when the raft is finished.

I knew Boone was a surely going to die once Shannon told Sayid she wanted to stay the entire night on the beach - I knew that meant she'd miss being at her brother's 'death bed'.

I didn't take it that way since the Boone vision had information about something that had already actually happened. Boone's story covers what he was saying in the dream. And actually, Boone didn't say Theresa died, just that she broke her neck. He probably realized it was dangerous, but I'm more in the camp of thinking the "island" forced him up there by ensuring Locke couldn't with his leg problems.

I've been lurking on these Lost threads but I had to post when I saw this. Please go watch A Christmas Story right now. Don't wait for Christmas time. Just go watch it right now. Trust me.

I didn't think Boone's mother was a mere wedding planner - I thought she's founder of some huge corporation that's a leader in the wedding industry and he runs part of it? Perhaps the wedding was a while ago before the company existed but if that's the case, I'd think it would have to have been a *long* while ago.

But if that's the case, we should of had a couple immaculate conceptions or something when the marshal died and that girl drowned, etc.

Goth is pronounced like Gothic without the ic. "Gahth," if you will. NOT "Gawth."

It was obviously "gaunt" to me...

wow...maybe it's just me, but "Gahth" and "Gawth" sure sound the same to me. Unless you pronounce "Gah" like the a in "hat"

I'm assuming the marriage later fails for some reason. He admitted to his father about having cold feet. And although his father didn't say it was wrong to marry the girl, he did tell Jack that he (Jack) had no problem committing to things but had a hard time letting go. As if he was trying to warn to Jack that the reservervations he were feeling were more than just 'cold feet'.

I honestly heard Hurley say something but it was like he mumbled. I ASSUMED (a second or two later) that he said "gaunt" but now I bet it was "Goth". That's much more of a Hurley line.

From "All The Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues"
LOCKE: So, Boone, what do you doing the real world?
BOONE: I run a business.
LOCKE: What kind of business?
BOONE: It's a wedding thing.
LOCKE: Huh?
BOONE: (a little embarrassed) My mother has this empire -- the Martha Stewart of matrimony. I run one of the subsidiaries.
LOCKE: So, who's running it now?
BOONE: I guess it doesn't matter, does it?

From "Hearts and Minds"
BOONE: Rutherford is her father's name. Our parents got married when I was
ten, she was eight.
MALCOLM (POLICE DETECTIVE): So she's your stepsister.
BOONE: That's right.
MALCOLM (POLICE DETECTIVE): No blood relation.
BOONE: Maybe you've heard of my mother, Sabrina Carlisle. She owns the largest wedding business in the United States. I'm the C.O.O. of the wedding clothing subsidiary.
MALCOLM (POLICE DETECTIVE): Would you like to buy my wife's wedding dress? It cost $2,000 new. It's only been worn once.
BOONE: I just want someone to go pay this guy a visit, that's all.

Exactly...why even put the line in if it was gaunt? That's not funny at all.

Because Jack said so. As we all know from scandals and popular court cases of the last decade or so, regardless of what the law says, the accused are guilty until proven innocent. Would this whole issue of Locke killing Boone have come up here Jack hadn't said anything? I bet not.

They found the plane, he went up there. Somebody had to. Locke was yelling for him to get out before it came down. He carried him back for medical care. Locke didn't want Boone to die.
I absolutely agree.

Once and for all... It's goth. Read his lips. You can see him make the "th" at the end. And LOTS of people say it that way.

I don't think Locke was faking. The island took the use of his legs away because it didn't want Locke to be the one going up into the plane. The island saw Boone as expendible. Once Boone went into the plane, Locke's legs slowly came back.

I thought it sounded like gaunt the first time I heard it, but when I played it back I clearly heard goth and could see his mouth for the "th" sound. How this word is pronounced differs regionally. I'm originally from NJ and have been living in LA for 10 years. How I hear and pronounce words has changed over time. Hurley is an LA dude and pronounced it accordingly.

Definitely 'goth'. I actually LOL'd when he said 'cause I thought it was so funny. 'gaunt'? I doubt 'gaunt' is even in Hurley's vocabulary. "Pale" maybe, but "gaunt"? Don't think so.

I can't recall there being variations on the pronunciation. I'm Californian, and I say the 'o' in goth the same as the 'o' in moth, cloth, or hot. What are these other pronunciations?

BTW, i think he said goth. I originally thought it was gaunt because that's what I would have said, but then realized it was goth after rewinding. That is just such a classic Hurley line.

I can't believe we are still discussing this, but I don't even think that gaunt would have made much sense in that context:

gaunt ( P ) Pronunciation Key (gônt)
adj. gaunt·er, gaunt·est
Thin and bony; angular. See Synonyms at lean2.
Emaciated and haggard; drawn.
Bleak and desolate; barren.

Gaunt is usually used to describe somebody that is very skinny AND unhealthy looking. Jack looked unhealthy but didn't look abnormally thin or skinny.

I kinda of scaned thru this thread and keep hearing everyone talked about Goth. Could someone who has this on thier TiVo put captions on and settle this? I am at work so I can not do it. It should be in the captions, right?

PS....I think he clearly says Goth.
