"Dude" is Hurley's catchphrase by which he addresses apparently everybody. His final dude count in Season 1, Season 2, Season 3, the Missing Pieces, Season 4 , Season 5, and Season 6 is up to a total 328, and his final average D.P.E. (dudes per episode) is 3.2.

The yellow-marked episodes are (at least partly) Hurley-centric. In episodes marked with "-" Hurley does not appear.

Official Lost Podcast
In the February 19th, 2008 edition of the official Lost podcast, Lost executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse entertained a question from "idontlikelocke" about why the amount of "dudes" spoken by Hurley had decreased after Season 1, only to increase after Season 2. Damon Lindelof joked that it was because of a contract dispute between the show and Jorge Garcia over the number of times he could say "dude" per season.
