Ethan tells Claire that the Others are "good people"

Several characters talk of "good people" and "bad people" in Lost. Characters' interpretations of these terms vary greatly. Self-proclaimed "good" characters have hurt and even killed other people. By the final season, the term evolved into a running joke, and characters openly distrusted anyone calling themselves "the good guys".
