KATE: This letter wasn’t written to you. You wrote this letter. Your name’s not Sawyer, is it?
SAWYER: It was his name. He was a confidence man. Romanced my momma to get to the money, wiped them out clean, left a mess behind. So I wrote that letter. I wrote it knowing one day I’d find him. But that ain’t the sad part. When I was 19, I needed 6 grand to pay these guys off I was in trouble with. So I found a pretty lady with a dumb husband who had some money. And I got them to give it to me. How’s that for a tragedy? I became the man I was hunting. Became Sawyer. Don’t you feel sorry for me. [He grabs the letter from her]. Get the hell out. Get out!
Además de ser un experto en poner motes a casi todos los personajes con los que se cruza, Sawyer tiene también algunas de las mejores frases de la serie. Como ésta, que es la finalista de la semana:
SAWYER: Baby, I am tied to a tree in a jungle of mystery. I just got tortured by a damn spinal surgeon and a gen-u-ine I-raqi.
