LOST "Running the Wheel" TEASER A FLIGHT IN through the "O" in the Lost logo ends in black -and the tinkling theme song for the CHICKEN SHACK CHILD SINGER Welcome to the Chicken Shack, the Chicken Shack, the Chicken Shack! Welcome to the Chicken Shack, make yourself at home! Smash cut to an E.C.U. -- On HURLEY's opening eye -INT. CHICKEN SHACK EMPLOYEE ROOM -- DAY -- FLASHBACK WIDER TO REVEAL -- Hurley, preparing for his shift, takes a deep breath to steady himself as he finishes tying his apron. RANDY Look who's back! How'd your little... vacation... treat ya there, big boy? Hurley looks up to see his Manager, RANDY, has entered the break room. Hurley is NOT HAPPY to see him. HURLEY Uh, fine. Hurley takes a Tupperware off the table and puts it in his locker. RANDY What you got there? HURLEY Lunch. My mom's got me on this diet. It's some salad(quietly) with tofu. RANDY You're eating tofu? HURLEY I guess so.
3. Miserable, Hurley wants out of this conversation as soon as possible. RANDY It all makes perfect sense, actually. Hurley looks up: is Randy actually being nice? HURLEY Really? RANDY Because that tofu doesn't even exist. You're not really here. I'm not really here. In fact, the entire Chicken Shack award-winning system of owner-run franchisees is just a figment of your imagination. CONFUSED, Hurley stares at Randy, not sure if Randy is messing with him or if this is another HALLUCINATION. Randy WIGGLES HIS FINGERS in front of Hurley's face. RANDY (CONT'D) Woooaaah! JOHNNY (O.S.) I wish this all was just in Hurley's head. Much to Hurley's relief, his buddy JOHNNY walks into the Employee Room. This BREAKS THE SPELL of confusion for Hurley: if Johnny's here, this must be real. JOHNNY If this was all in Hurley's imagination, then maybe we'd wake up and really be like millionaire lottery winners or something-- instead of chicken slingers at the Chicken Shack! There is a shocked silence filled only with the Chicken Shack theme song as everyone processes this. RANDY Do you have a problem with working at the Chicken Shack? Hurley steps in between Johnny and Randy.
4. HURLEY Uh, no problem, we don't have any problems, none at all, right Johnny? Randy studies Johnny and Hurley carefully. EMPLOYEE CARD on the table for Hurley. Throws a new
RANDY Good. Then you'd better punch in. You're late. I'm writing you both up. Randy leaves the room. Hurley and Johnny look at each other.
JOHNNY You okay, dude? Yeah. HURLEY You okay?
Johnny grins a crooked grin at Hurley. JOHNNY Never better. Glad you're back, Hurley-man. Johnny walks out of the room. Employee Card as he exits: Hurley follows, glancing at his
CU of Hurley's new Employee Number -- 4815-162342 Off Hurley's shocked expression: EXT. JUNGLE -- DAY A SHAKING HAND GRASPS a dented and battered box of DHARMA-BRAND CEREAL that bears its own code: DI 9FFTR731 Pull back to reveal HURLEY glancing back and forth between the jungle and the box in his hand. He DOESN'T DARE TAKE HIS EYES OFF THE JUNGLE FOR MORE THAN A SECOND. Hurley pushes on the dented-in corner to determine the sturdiness of the package. Deciding it's okay, Hurley puts the box in his BACKPACK and surveys the area for further scavenging. There are BOXES and METALLIC DEBRIS scattered throughout the area, and as Hurley scans further we find out why:
5. A jagged HOLE gapes out of the jungle -- the remains of THE HATCH. A grimace moves over Hurley's face as he sees the Hatch, an unconscious shudder: something bad happened there. Hurley avoids moving towards the hole and continues to work the radius of the area. A little jittery, he moves towards a container of RANCH DRESSING closer to the hole in the ground. He picks up the container. The bottom doesn't hold and the ranch dressing POURS OUT ON THE JUNGLE FLOOR. HURLEY Oh, man! Sadly, Hurley sticks one finger in the dressing and then IN HIS MOUTH. Suddenly, his eyes catch a FLASH of WHITE: POV: DEEP INSIDE THE HOLE -- THE WHITE LABEL OF A DHARMA FOOD PACKAGE. Hurley STANDS UP to survey the situation. The hole is about 30 feet deep, with jagged edges of the concrete walls sticking out here and there. IT'S SCARY -- But the package calls. Hurley makes a decision and begins to climb into the hole laboriously. EXT. HOLE -- A FEW MINUTES LATER Sweating, Hurley reaches the bottom of the hole and picks up the package. HURLEY Dharmalars, score! Only then does he look around THE HOLE. Despite the sunny day up there, it's dark down here. And a little creepy. Hurley EXPLORES the area, noticing misplaced details of The Hatch That Was: a battered dryer, door hanging open, a mainframe computer, crushed sideways under a block of concrete, a shower head. Suddenly Hurley notices something else down there. HURLEY'S POV: a BLACK VOID underneath a block of OVERHANGING CONCRETE -- what's in there?
We 360 around Hurley as the whispers build -. one half-hanging open.6. Hurley glances around -. Hurley backs away from the doors. And then the WHISPERS begin -They fade in gradually. and LOOKS INSIDE. HURLEY Hey! His voice echoes far inside. scared. his eyes adjust to the deep shadow and he can see: BATTERED CORRUGATED METAL DOORS. RUSTLING SOUNDS start to echo out of the tunnel: SOMETHING'S IN THERE -. doors aren't anything we've seen before in the Hatch.AND IT'S COMING OUT. HURLEY'S POV: A DARK TUNNEL STRETCHES FARTHER THAN THE LIGHT GOES. As he gets closer. These Hurley grabs one of the doors and WRENCHES it as far open as he can. off his terrified look we -END OF TEASER .who's saying that? -. Suddenly. This tunnel is deep. Not too sure he wants to find out. Hurley moves TOWARDS THE VOID.as he continues to move away from the doors.and that thing is still coming out of the tunnel -Hurley is BREATHING HARD. takes a deep breath.
He finds what he was looking for and straightens up. He begins to scramble up the jagged edges of of the concrete walls towards the top of the hole. He's turned the other way as THE THING comes flapping out of the metal doors.7. where survivors engage in various daily tasks: ROSE grills some FRESHLY CAUGHT FISH over the fire. only his legs visible as he digs deep. and Hurley pauses also. As suddenly as they started. BEACH -. JIN works on weaving a NET. Charlie turns and heads back to Claire's tent. where CLAIRE HAS BEEN WATCHING THESE DAILY TASKS with increasing discomfort. It's almost out. tying each knot expertly. HOLE -. CHARLIE rummages through the stash in SAWYER'S TENT. then he hears: BIRD (Cawing) Hurley! Hurley looks behind him and sees A LARGE BIRD flying up and out of the hole. Hurley watches it fly away. Now the sounds of the RUSTLING THING COMING OUT OF THE TUNNEL is all too clear. off a piece to taste and smiles in satisfaction. Hurley squeezes his eyes shut in fear.CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS SCENE Hurley's EYES are focused on the metal doors and whatever's coming out of there as the WHISPERS build. EXT. ACT ONE EXT.DAY It's another beautiful sunny day at the Lostaway Beach Community. She breaks . It's all too much to take and Hurley TURNS TAIL AND RUNS. inspecting it: a GAUDY GOD-AWFUL GOLD NECKLACE. THE WHISPERS STOP.

Sawyer. he wakes up with a JOLT. Kate can't believe what she's hearing: this man is impossible! She rolls her eyes. Sawyer THROWS HIS SHOE at the high lever. KATE looks out at SAWYER sleeping on the bench in his cage. SAWYER PAUSES IN BETWEEN BITES. EXT. Sunshine. Sawyer calmly gets up and starts to go through the Fish Biscuit process. KATE I just heard you snore! SAWYER Wasn't me. KATE You were snoring. SAWYER Forget about it. SAWYER Good morning to you too. Freckles. KATE Whatever you say. Something passes over her face as she studies him: concern? is it SOMETHING MORE? Sawyer's mouth drops open and a loud SNORE rattles out. Sawyer tries to shake the sleep out of his head. then goes back to his eating. KATE (CONT'D) I know how we can get out of here.9. SAWYER (CONT'D) For the record. Or .
