This is platinum on a carbon film CCD-imaged under a transmission electron microscope beam at 800K times magnification. I am told that the discernible lines are atomic planes; sounds about right since the lattice constant for Pt is 3.92 Å.

Dialogue from Lost -- Season 4 -- Episode 5


PENNY: Desmond?

DESMOND: Penny…Penny, answer. Answer, Penny.

PENNY: Des, where are you?

DESMOND: I’m…I’m on a boat. Um…I’ve been on an island, and— Oh, my God, Penny. Is that really you?

PENNY: Yeah! Yes, it’s me!

DESMOND: You believe me? You still care about me?

PENNY: Des, I’ve been looking for you for the past three years. I know about the island. I’ve been researching—(static)—and then when I spoke to your friend Charlie, that’s when I knew you were still alive. That’s when I knew I wasn’t crazy. Des, are you still there!?

DESMOND: Yes, yes, I’m here! I’m still here, can you hear me?

PENNY: Yeah, yeah, that’s better.

DESMOND: I love you, Penny. I’ve always loved you. I’m so sorry. I love you!

PENNY: I love you too.

DESMOND: I don’t know where I am, but–

PENNY: I’ll find you, Des–

DESMOND: –I promise–

PENNY: –no matter what–

DESMOND: –I’ll come back to you–

PENNY: –I won’t give up–

BOTH: I promise. I love you.

[Static cuts them off.]


I just liked the dialogue and I wanted other people to see it.
