Jin OTOH, CAN speak English in the Sideways Flash, which is why he has the ability on the Island.
I think I'm going to have to go back and watch a few episodes to refresh my memory....couple questions about the above:
#1 - I thought Sun COULD speak English in the sideways flash...or maybe I just assumed that she could because:
A: At the airport, when the customs people found the money, one of them said "Do you speak English?"....and it appear Sun was about to speak.
B: Just before Keemy came into the room while she was talking to Jin, she said something along the lines of "Ok, I need to tell you something" which I thought was going to be "I can speak English". Not sure why I felt that, but I did.
#2 - Refresh my memory of Jin speaking English in the sideways flash. What did he say & where? I just can't remember him saying anything other than "No English."
