A transcript is a retrospective written record of dialogue, and like a script (a prospective record) may include other scene information such as props or actions. In the case of a transcript of a film or television episode, ideally it is a verbatim record. Because closed-captioning is usually written separately, its text may have errors and does not necessarily reflect the true Canonical transcript.
Transcripts for Lost episodes up to and including "Enter 77" are based on the transcriptions by Lost-TV member Spooky with aid of DVR, and at times, closed captions for clarification. She and Lost-TV have generously granted us permission to share/host these transcripts at Lostpedia. Later transcripts were created by the Lostpedia community, unless stated otherwise below.

Mobisode 3 - "King of the Castle"
Writers - Brian K. Vaughan
Director - Jack Bender
[Jack and Ben are playing chess in Ben's house in the Barracks]
BEN: So this must be strange to you.
JACK: Not really. Been a while, but my dad taught me to play when I was a kid.
BEN: Actually, I was talking about you being here, with us.
JACK: I got what I wanted.
BEN: It's been a long time since I had anybody with a little skill to play against. I don't suppose there is anything I could do to convince you to stick around. (laughs) Relax, Jack. Just an idle question. We have a deal; I fully intend to honor it.
JACK: Intend to, or you will?
BEN: Well it's not entirely up to me. If the Island doesn't want you to leave, it won't let you.
JACK: What, the... the Island's gonna sink the sub?
BEN: [chuckling] No. No. I promise you, I won't do anything to prevent you from getting home. But if you do leave this place, the day may come when you want to return.
BEN: I've learned never to say never. And if that day comes, I hope you remember this conversation.
[Ben makes a castle move in the game]
BEN: It was a nice try though.
