She warns him that the man will lie for a long time.
Sayid is taken to Joe Inman, who is a CIA operative. Inman says that he knows that Sayid feels like helping the Americans is wrong. Inman tells Sayid that before Tariq was his commanding officer, he was part of a chemical weapons unit in another part of the country. Inman knows that Sayid had relatives where Saddam gassed a village with saran gas. Inman says that all the Americans want is their pilot back. Sayid says that Tariq won't talk to the Americans and Inman says that Sayid will have to make Tariq talk to him.
In the Hatch, Sayid wakes up Locke and wants him to come look at something.
Locke is in the Hatch as well. Sayid wants to know who he is. Gale explains that he and his wife were trying to fly around the world in a hot air balloon when it crashed on the Island four months ago. His wife died three weeks ago after getting sick. Jack walks up and wants to know what is going on. Sayid says that he's questioning the man, because Danielle thinks he's an Other.

Hurley has had enough and tells Sawyer to tell everyone about his secret and that he knows he's fat.. He starts to walk off, but Sawyer stops him and apologizes and begs Hurley for help with the frog, because it's driving him crazy.
Jack treats Gale's wound. Nearby, Locke and Sayid talk about Gale's story. Locke thinks that the story is pretty convincing and that they have no way of knowing whether it's true or not. Sayid asks if Locke can change the combination on the lock, so that he can have some time with Gale without Jack stopping him. Locke says it'll only take a couple of minutes and Sayid says he should get started.
Sayid asks Jack if Gale said anything while he was treating him. Jack says that he didn't. Sayid and Locke then work Jack over and convince him to move Gale into the armory, because it might upset the other survivors.
The three of them carry Gale into the armory. Locke and Jack leave to get a cot and Sayid closes the door.
Sayid enters the room with Tariq alone. Sayid starts to take out some tools, but Tariq laughs and believes that it's a bluff.

His wife's maiden name is Murphy and they met at the University of Minnesota . His wife's illness started as a fever. Gale wants to know why he's being treated "this way." Sayid says that he was twenty-three when the Americans came. He was a good soldier when they came, but he was something different when they left. He did things that he wishes he hadn't for six years. He says that he's a torturer.
Hurley and Sawyer close in on the frog. Hurley spots it and tries to grab it, but he trips. The frog jumps and Sawyer catches it. Hurley tells him about having a turtle when he was ten and that he's not sure if the story that his mother told her is true. Hurley offers to take the frog far away: two beaches away. Sawyer instead squishes the frog and then walks off.
Jack works on something and Locke offers his help. Jack ignores him. Jack tells Locke to shut up and as he pours some water, he notices the pliers are missing.

He says that he got rich by selling his mining company, which mined non-metallic minerals. Sayid takes out the pliers. He asks Gale about his wife's grave. Gale says that he buried her by the balloon, but that he doesn't remember anything else. Sayid says that Gale would remember every detail even it were true. Gale asks him if he lost someone. Sayid says that it was an accident. Sayid starts hitting Gale.
Outside the armory door, Jack demands that Locke open the door. Locke refuses. The alarm starts to go off. Jack won't let Locke go unless Locke gives him the combination. Locke gives in. He opens the armory door and then runs to the computer. He mistypes the numbers and the alarm goes to zero. Machinery starts up as the counters begin to lock in: a penguin (?) and two missiles. Locke hits execute. The machinery stops and the counter resets to 108 minutes.
