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.

Doctor to the Rescue
Deleted from "A Tale of Two Cities"
[Jack sits in his car, as seen in the final cut of "A Tale of Two Cities". Moonlight Serenade plays as in the episode. Jack takes a sip of his coffee and looks over to the playground across the street. Jack looks over to Sarah, who is with some children. The children run to the playground whilst Sarah and another man talk, Sarah whispering in his ear and laughing.
TEACHER: Help! Sarah! Quick! Hurry!
[The shot moves to the teacher standing over a girl who appears to be having convulsions. Sarah runs over.]
SARAH: Get the kids outta here. Hurry! Go call 911, call 911. Call an ambulance! [Jack leaves his car and goes to run over to the playground - a car has to brake to avoid him. As Jack reaches the playground, Sarah is crouched over the girl.] Honey, can you hear me? Can you... Can you breathe?
[Jack runs over and leans over the girl. Sarah looks at him.]
JACK: Move, move... What happened?
TEACHER: Excuse me, who are you?
JACK: I'm a doctor, what happened?
TEACHER: Oh, hmm... She was... She was on the... monkey bars, and she was just climbing, and she, uh ...
JACK: Was she eating anything?
JACK: When she was climbing! Was she eating anything?
TEACHER: I don't know... [Jack begins to perform the Heimlich maneuver, and something falls from the girl's mouth. The teacher hugs the girl as Sarah looks on in relief] Oh my god, oh my god. Oh thank God. Thank you, thank you.
TEACHER: Are you okay, sweetie? Yeah? okay ... okay ...
[The teacher and girl walk away. Jack walks up to Sarah. Sarah shakes her head.]
JACK: I was just on my way to work... Thought I'd come see ya.
SARAH: You didn't come by to see me Jack, you came by to watch me.
JACK: You know, if I want to come talk to my wife, I don't have to ask permission.
SARAH: Ex-wife. Jack.
JACK:: [gestures over to the man Sarah was laughing with] That him? The guy with the art supplies?
SARAH: [shakes her head] Sign the papers Jack. Just sign the papers.

[Nikki sees Claire and attempts to notify Paulo.]
NIKKI: Paulo, stop.
CLAIRE: Oh, Nikki?
NIKKI: [slapping at Paulo] Get off, move. [Paulo stands and Nikki rushes to put her top on] Sorry Claire.
CLAIRE: No, no, no. It's fine.
PAULO: [angrily] It is not your tent, is it?
CLAIRE: No, it's not yours either, it's actually Jack's, I thought ...
NIKKI: We didn't do this on purpose...we just...we needed some aspirin, and so we can...
CLAIRE: No, it's fine. You don't need to explain.
PAULO: Why are you making an excuse to her?
NIKKI: Ah, cause she walked in when we're having sex, that is what you do.
PAULO: God forbid someone have sex on this island. [Paulo storms off]
NIKKI: Sorry...just happened.
CLAIRE: It's fine. Don't worry.

[Claire tends to Aaron. She walks over to her laundry as Nikki walks up.]

CLAIRE: It's fine Nikki. You don't need to apologize...it's...it's fine.
NIKKI: Look, I know that we hang out in our side of the beach and we don't really socialize as much as we should, but we have got to respect each other, right?
CLAIRE: True. We do.
NIKKI: Anyway, I just wanna that you know I really am sorry.
CLAIRE: It's fine. Really. Okay? Don't worry about it.
[Nikki takes a seat next to Claire]
NIKKI: So, you are probably wondering why Jack's tent.
CLAIRE: No, not really.
NIKKI: We were looking for aspirin. Paulo get this really bad headaches, you know. But, once we were in there, I don't know what happened to him. All at once he was all over me and wasn't like I was gonna stop him, you know, because ... ah ... okay ... between us...Paulo and I hadn't have sex since the crash.
CLAIRE: [uncomfortably] Okay, ah ... it's ... it's good to know Nikki ... thanks.
NIKKI: No, no, I'm fine talking about it. Since the crash Paulo ... is ... you know ... having some problems ... performance wise.
CLAIRE: [obviously uncomfortable] You know, Nikki, this is really not by business.
NIKKI: This it happens with Charlie too? Where it's like nothing, and all at once, [Claire looks astounded] wham, you know, he wants to do it..on the airplane or in the supermarket.
[Claire stands and looks over the beach.]

BEN: Relax John, Jacob is near.
LOCKE: Does it bother you that your daughter gave me a gun?
BEN: Alex is a sixteen years old, she's in a rebellious phase.
LOCKE: "If this is rebellious, I'd hate to see what she does when she finds that you're not her real father. [Ben stops walking and turns to face Locke] I know you kidnapped her, when she was a baby, from Rousseau.
BEN: I did not kidnap her. I'm just the one who raised her.
LOCKE: Then why did you tell her that her mother was dead?
BEN: Because her mother is a raving lunatic who slaughtered her entire research team and spent the next sixteen years sleeping in ditches. What would you have told her? I mean, think about it John. Imagine how much happier your childhood would have been if you had no idea who your parents were.
