[quote]She better get a substantial amount of money because no one will hire her after this. [/quote]
Yeah, there's a reason it took her months to sue, because if you sue a hospital and you're a nurse, it's hard as hell to find a job in healthcare. They're sued enough as it is, and nothing pisses...

That's true enough. Didn't think of him as that loose of an end, but he does know about Rachel, although he doesn't know everything she did. If he can somehow find her body (although I ...

[quote]There should be no such thing. Ever.[/quote]
I disagree. Season 5 of LOST certainly was, but at least it was actually building up to something. This was building up to nothing though. Claire as an ambassador and Putin were dropped in the middle of the season. Really just a sloppy season. T...

It seems like having her run for president is what they were hinting at the whole second half of the season. That's pretty ridiculous but a little more palatable. I hope the...

On the top of my head on the number of times he's gotten beaten:
1) Got the dog crap beat out of him by Sayid.
2) Hit in the face by Sawyer
3) Beaten repeatably by Jack
4) Elbowed in the face by Rousseau
5) Beaten by Sawyer
