With the final season premiering in merely days (wooo!!!!), I thought it would be fun to take a look back at what I consider the 100 greatest lines that have ever been uttered on Lost. I spent weeks, nay, months rewatching every single episode (it’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it) and listed below are my results. It was hard to whittle it down to only 100 – Ben and Sawyer could each have their own Top 100 Lines lists easily!
