My 60 Favourite Characters (in alphabetical order): Benjamin Linus, Lost (Michael Emerson).
“You have to understand, everything I did, I did for the Island.”
Ben: Thomas the Apostle. When Jesus wanted to return to Judea, knowing that he would probably be murdered there, Thomas said to the others, “Let us also go, that we might die with him.” But Thomas was not remembered for this bravery. His claim to fame came later… when he refused to acknowledge the resurrection. He just couldn’t wrap his mind around it. The story goes… that he needed to touch Jesus’ wounds to be convinced.
We’re all convinced sooner or later, Jack.
BEN: Your fellow Americans have re-elected George W. Bush, Christopher Reeve has passed away… Boston Red Sox won the world series.
JACK: (starts laughing)
JACK: If you wanted me to believe this, you probably should have picked somebody else besides the Red Sox.
