Hurley's notebook was used by Hurley to rewrite Star Wars - Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

MILES: “Exterior—Hoth. A little spy robot thingy zips through the atmosphere and crashes into the snowy planet below. That's when Chewbacca shows up and blasts it away with his crossbow laser. He shakes his fury fist in the sky in triumph. Chewbacca — Raaar."

HURLEY: It's “furry.” “Furry fist.” I need to spell-check it.

MILES: What the hell is this?

HURLEY: I'm writing Empire Strikes Back.

MILES: Uh... I'm sorry. What?

HURLEY: It's 1977, right? So Star Wars just came out. And pretty soon, George Lucas is gonna be looking for a sequel. I've seen Empire, like, 200 times, so I figured I'd make life easier and send him the script... with a couple improvements.

MILES: That has gotta be the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

  • While driving back from the Orchid station Miles asked Hurley what he was doing and Hurley ignored him. Miles then stole Hurley's notebook and read it out loud. Miles asked Hurley what he was writing about and Hurley said he was rewriting George Lucas' The Empire Strikes Back, but with a couple of improvements.
  • The notebook featured an as yet unidentified DHARMA logo which is referred to by fans as the "School logo": an apple on top of several books.
