"Hold the Phone" is an orchestral piece on the Season 3 soundtrack. It plays during the season finale.

Scene description

Ben tells Jack that Naomi is lying about her identity - she's one of the "bad guys." He asks to give him the satellite phone, and when Jack refuses, Ben turns on his walkie-talkie, revealing Tom's voice. Ben tells Tom to shoot Sayid, Bernard and Jin unless he says otherwise. When Jack refuses to give in, three shots come through the walkie-talkie.

Jack beats Ben severely then promises to kill Tom.


The piece uses the Others' motif, the Others' action motif, Ben's action motif, Jack's motif and Jack's fighting motif.
