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.

This is a flash forward.
It takes place in Los Angeles.
(Jack makes himself a screwdriver)
Jack has said he was never much of a drinker.
But we saw him intoxicated several times
in the flash forward in last season's finale
"Through the Looking Glass."
Hurley is driving this 1974 Camaro
which is the same car that he and his dad rebuilt
before his dad abandoned the family
in "Tricia Tanaka is Dead" in Season 3.
(Hurley: "I'm one of the Oceanic Six!")
Six survivors got off the island.
They are known to the world as the Oceanic Six.
Ana Lucia was an Oceanic 815 survivor
from the tail section of the plane.
She was shot and killed by Michael.
(Hurley: "Sorry, I never met [Ana Lucia].")
Hurley is lying.
He knew Ana Lucia before she was killed on the island.
Charlie is appearing to Hurley in a vision.
"They need you" is written on Charlie's hand.
Just before Charlie drowned in the Looking Glass station
he wrote "not Penny's boat" on his hand.
Hurley spent some time in a mental institution
before the crash of Oceanic 815.
Jack led his people to the radio tower
where they turned off Rousseau's distress signal
and contacted the freighter to be rescued.
Locke killed Naomi by throwing a knife in her back.
He believes she and her people from the freighter
are coming to kill everyone on the island.
Claire is in love with Charlie
and she doesn't know that he drowned.
This is Ben Linus, the leader of the Others.
Jack beat him up when Ben ordered his men
to kill Jack's friends at the beach.
Hurley won over $150 million in the lottery
but he believes the money was a curse.
His winning numbers were
4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42.
These are the same numbers that were entered
into the Swan DHARMA station computer.
Desmond was in the Looking Glass station
when Charlie drowned.
Desmond saw the warning "not Penny's boat"
that Charlie wrote on his hand.
This is Danielle Rousseau, a French woman
who shipwrecked on the island 16 years ago.
Ben kidnapped Danielle's daughter, Alex
when Alex was an infant.
(Jack and Kate hug)
Jack told Kate that he loved her
in the Season 3 finale
but in actual island time
that was just a few hours ago.
This is the Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute.
Hurley also stayed here before the 815 crash.
Hurley was treated for guilt and depression
following a deadly patio deck collapse
he believed was caused by his excessive weight.
(Abaddon: "I'm an attorney for Oceanic Airlines.")
Matthew Abaddon is not really an attorney
nor does he work for Oceanic Airlines.
Abaddon is a Biblical reference
and a Hebrew word meaning
"guardian of the abyss."
The drawing on the chalkboard is a clue
to Abaddon's agenda for visiting Hurley.
This is Jacob's cabin.
Jacob is a mysterious man
from whom Ben claims he receives his orders.
Ben believes, as Locke does
that the freighter people
are not coming to rescue the survivors
but rather, to kill everyone on the island.
Ben came to the island as a young boy
with his father, Roger Linus
who worked for the DHARMA Initiative.
Ben released poisonous gas
to kill all the people of the DHARMA Initiative.
He then became the leader of the Others
the original inhabitants of the island.
Naomi parachuted on the island
just before her helicopter crashed.
She claimed she was hired by Penny Widmore
Desmond's girlfriend, to find Desmond.
(Hurley stumbles upon Jacob's cabin)
Ben previously told Locke
that Jacob is not someone you go see
but rather, he is someone who summons you.
Hurley and Locke are the only 815 survivors
who have seen Jacob's cabin.
This is John Locke.
He was paralyzed before the crash
and he believes if he leaves the island
he may be paralyzed again.
Locke has sabotaged every opportunity
the survivors have had to leave the island
including blowing up a submarine
and a communications station.
This is Sun's husband, Jin.
He is returning from the beach
where he carried out an ambush on the Others
along with Sayid and Bernard.
This is Bernard and his wife, Rose.
This is an apparition of Charlie.
He was one of the Oceanic survivors
and a very close friend of Hurley's.
Charlie knew he was going to die
because Desmond told Charlie
he saw Charlie's death in one of his "flashes."
Charlie accepted the mission and his fate
and sacrificed himself to save all his friends.
Juliet was a member of the Others.
She joined the survivors camp
because she wants to get off the island, too.
The Others left their home at the barracks
and on Ben's orders, went to a secret place
called the Temple.
Rose arrived on the island with cancer
but she claims she has been healed.
Like Locke, it is unclear if her condition
will return if she leaves the island.
(Hurley, to Jack: "Reporters leaving you alone?")
The Oceanic 6 have become a big media story.
(Jack: "I'm thinking about growing a beard.")
We saw Jack with a beard
in the flash forward of last season's finale.
In this game of Horse, Jack has "H-O"
"H" is the 8th letter of the alphabet
"O" is the 15th. Together they make "815"
the same number as the ill-fated Oceanic flight.
(Jack: "We're never going back!")
Jack will come to change his mind
and emphatically tell Kate they must go back
as was revealed in the Season 3 finale
"Through the Looking Glass."
(Jack and Kate look at the cockpit wreckage)
The survivors have not seen
the Oceanic 815 cockpit wreckage
since Jack, Kate and Charlie came here
to find the transceiver in the pilot episode.
This is Daniel Faraday.
He is a physicist from the freighter.
