LOST TOP 100: The Top 100 Lost Lines of All Time

January 28th, 2010 § 100 comments

With the final season premiering in merely days (wooo!!!!), I thought it would be fun to take a look back at what I consider the 100 greatest lines that have ever been uttered on Lost. I spent weeks, nay, months rewatching every single episode (it’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it) and listed below are my results. It was hard to whittle it down to only 100 – Ben and Sawyer could each have their own Top 100 Lines lists easily!

So without further ado, I give you my Top 100 Lost Lines of All Time!

  • DB Ferguson says:

    #23 (“Dude, you’ve got some Arzt on you.”) is definitely my #1. Well, that and the line Hurley says about rewriting the Empire Strikes back for when he makes it back to California.

    Basically, anything by Hurley. He’s my hero.

  • DC says:

    Thanks for the sneak peek — looks like we’re in for one helluva course correction! What happened, happens.

    Your list and everyone else’s contributions are like Lost’s Greatest Hits (not the eppy, heh!) — Personally I love the secret code Ben quote (and the hamster on a giant wheel) and YES Guys…where ahhh we? and and…well, they’re all on your list!

    Yes, Juliet has AWESOME “Faaacccccce!” lines.

    Keep writing! We heart the nuances AND Ack…

  • Alex says:

    Hurley’s line at no. 62 is actually from “The Beginning of the End”, not “Because You Left”. Superb list, though.

  • Cecil Rose says:

    Oh, and one of my favorites:

    As Sawyer and Juliet head back to the bach camp to try and help Sayid, Jin, and Bernard, sawyer asks Juliet what the others were making that he and Juliet had to do all the rock breaking for.

    “A runway.”

    “A runway, what for?”

    “The aliens, of course.”

    Even though it was immediately apparent she was joking, I so *wanted* that to be true.

  • Ack says:

    Thank you Alex! Corrected!

  • Laura! says:

    I was so sad to see that my favorite Charlie line wasn’t on the list! (Could just be my obsession with Dominic Monaghan, but still!)

    Kate: Hey Charlie! Ask Jack about his tattoos.
    Charlie: Oh, you guys have an inside joke. How absolutely wonderful for you both.

  • Ennui says:

    They look like they missed two of my favorites:

    “Why is there a dead Pakistani on my couch?” – Hugo’s mom

    “What if I don’t? You going to beat me with your Jesus stick? I find it a little odd that your scripture stick has dried blood on it.” – Charlie

  • amy says:

    Just wanted to add one of my favorites. It was something like this- “You’re not gonna stick me with that brotha!!” -Desmond on the freighter.

  • Russell says:

    “Sometimes good command decisions get compromised by bad emotional responses.” Ben – There’s no place like home.

  • Grognerd says:

    great list, but ultimately fail because it leaves out the greatest lost lines ever…

    Kate: My blouse was full of bees
    Charlie: I would have guessed Cs.

  • Sawdia says:

    Great list aside from not enough Charlie quotes. I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but I still hold out a hope he’s still alive. LOL Thanks for the list!

  • TP says:

    What about Hurley’s comment when they’re deciding whether or not to lie about what happened (on Penny’s boat). When he’s describing how the island disappeared:

    Hurley: It just disappeared. Bloop.

  • Here’s a great line from “White Rabbit.”

    Christian: “I had a boy on my table today. I don’t know, maybe a year younger than you. He had a bad heart. It got real hairy, real fast. And everybody’s looking at your old man to make decisions. And I was able to make those decisions because at the end of the day, after the boy died, I was able to wash my hands and come home to dinner. You know, watch a little Carol Burnett, laugh till my sides hurt. And how can I do that, hmm? And even when I fail, how do I do that, Jack? Because I have what it takes. Don’t choose, Jack, don’t decide. You don’t want to be a hero, you don’t try and save everyone because when you fail … you just don’t have what it takes.”

    Such an important line because of the way in which it defines Jack’s character and his motivations.

    Last one is from “Expose.” Sawyer says, “Who’s Nikki?” and later “Who’s Paulo?” Freakin’ awesome!

  • Finsfan says:

    “I guest we’re not going to Guam” Frank Lapiduis

    One my all time favorites.

  • Nestle says:

    “I just shot a bear!” ~Sawyer, from one of the very first episodes. Can’t remember which one. :)

  • Susan says:

    Kate : “are you taking that to Miles?”
    Hurley: “yup”
    Kate: “Locke asked me to do it… is he still in the rec room?”
    Hurley: “No, they moved him to the boathouse…”

    Hurley: “you just totally Scooby-doo’ed me, didn’t you?”

  • Cpgunit says:

    I’d say you just left out “were not goin to Guam are we?” and “With enough money and determination, you can find anyone”

  • Snarkmeister says:

    Skeletor likes it!” – Sawyer, as he clinks the skull of Roger “Workman” Linus with a 30-year-old can of beer. Awesome. That episode is one of my all-time favorites.

  • Cait says:

    That was a great list! I have to say one of my favorite lost moments wasn’t on it though. When they get back from being held in the cages, and jack and kate are in the camp’s kitchen making oatmeal, kate goes ” it’s strange isn’t it. . . being back. I almost don’t know what to do with myself” JAck: ” yeah. well i’m sure something will go wrong soon enough . “

    oh! also in season one when kate finds the box with the toy airplane ” it belonged to the man i loved. it belonged to the man i killed . “

  • Tristan Bella says:

    I would definitely have to say my favorite quote is from the Incident, Pt. 1. “Do you have any idea how badly I want to kill you?” – The Man in Black

  • Lockerox says:

    I ♥ a line by Ana Lucia in “The Whole Truth,”
    “Jack and Locke are a little too busy worrying about Locke and Jack.”

    …But this is great anyway.
    Thanks!

  • dtydu says:

    ok…. how do u forget DRIVE SHAFT!?!?!

  • Hypnotize says:

    Ep 6×18 The end.

    Desmond: I have to pu it back. It was like a drain
    Jack: Thats what you did? You took that stone out of that hole over there.
    Desmond: Jack you can’t. Listen. Even if you turn it back on it will kill ya. It has to be me.
    Jack: Desmond. You have done enough. You wanna do something? Go home and be with your wife and son
    Desmond: How about you Jack?
    Jack: I’ll see you in another life brother.

    i love when sawyer says “i say we shoot him in the foot, send that little piggy to the market”

  • First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you
    don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and
    clear your head prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing
    my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do
    take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to
    be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Cheers!

  • Jigar says:

    Sayid: Do Jack and Locke know about this?
    Ana-Lucia Cortez: Jack and Locke are a little too busy worrying about Locke and Jack.

  • Merv Lukeba says:

    Great list but here’s one from Season 2 that might not be the most popular but still brilliant

    Jack: What are you doing?

    Sawyer: (As he grabs weapons) What does it look like I’m doing?

    Jack: You’re still on anti-biotics..

    Sawyer: Good thing I’m travelling with my doctor then.

  • Russ says:

    I see you don’t monetize your website, i think there is one opportunity to earn extra money
    on your page, search in google for- idol4jp makes money

  • In a world where there is so much to be done. I felt strongly impressed that there must be something for me to do.
