Lost: The Finale

It's hard to believe that when I first started watching Lost, I was pregnant with Liam. Now it's six years later and it's coming to an end. I have really been enjoying all of the press out there as we build up to the finale... and reliving the good times...(Painting of Locke done by Marilyn Manson, of all people!)

Some of my favourite quotes from over the years:

Miles: Where the hell did they go, Tubby?
Hurley: Oh, awesome. The ship sent us another Sawyer.

Sawyer: Oh look. There’s my favorite leaf. How could I ever forget this place?

Sawyer: I got enough food here to open up a convenience store. Hey, think Sayid needs a job?

Lapidus: "We're not going to Guam, are we?"

Best moments:
The season 3 finale, "Through the Looking Glass" - absolutely the best thing on TV ever, when they revealed the flash-forward trick ("We have to go back, Kate!") That, plus Charlie's death with "Not Penny's boat" written on his palm - that was the best.
The season 1 finale, when the raft took off from the beach, only to be firebombed by the Others.
Sawyer jumping from the helicopter and then swimming up to the beach.
When Jack realized the dude in the hatch was Desmond ("See you in another life, brother!")
Desmond and Penny's phone call in "The Constant".
When Ben executed The Purge.
When it was revealed that Locke was in a wheelchair prior to the plane crash.
The opening of season 3 (?), at the book club at the Barracks.
When Jack radioed the freighter to be rescued.
When they found the looped recording of Rousseau in season 1, and realized it had been playing for 16 years.
When they revealed the map of the island that was drawn on the wall inside the hatch.
When the Oceanic Six came home. And again when they boarded the plane to go back.

Man, I am going to miss this show! Looking forward to a marathon night on Sunday.
