Hurley wakes up to find himself in a rehab center. Sophie gets in posing as a rehab consultant. In a group session, Jack introduces himself as being addicted to alcohol, nicotine (patches), porn, gambling, eating…tacos… In talking Jack admits he doesn’t even know where he parked his car, the one he crashed wasn’t his, and he seems really concerned about it.

Hurley wakes up to find himself in a rehab center. Sophie gets in posing as a rehab consultant. In a group session, Jack introduces himself as being addicted to alcohol, nicotine (patches), porn, porn (internet and non-internet), gambling, eating…tacos… In talking Jack admits he doesn’t even know where he parked his car, the one he crashed wasn’t his, and he seems really concerned about it.


Added DiffLines:

* BrickJoke: Jack mentions, among his other addictions, he is addicted to tacos. When he escapes with Nate, Nate gives him tacos for information.
* TheCharmer: Elliot shows his skills once more with the receptionist at the facility. Hardison cools his work off by claiming to be Elliot's boyfriend. Elliot isn't amused.


Added DiffLines:

* MistakenForGay: The Second Act facility only permits relatives of their patients to visit them. Elliot passes himself as Nate's "brother". To get in, Hardison invokes this by saying he's Elliot's boyfriend.

* AccidentalAimingSkills: Hardison shows this in fine fashion. He fires a shot and kills the Mexicans' engine block. After Elliot congratulates him on this tactic, Hardison admits he meant to hit the guy in the leg.



* FunctionalAddict: Nate tries to portray himself as this in rehab. He fails.



* RealityEnsues: What happens when you take a "drinking first thing in the morning" alcoholic and stick him in a facility with absolutely no recourse to alcohol? You get Nate in this episode.

** To a lesser extent also occurs with Parker. When you put the best thief in the world on antidepressants, she stops wanting to be a thief. Thus when Nate needs her, she is useless.

Nate is getting fed up with being cooped up in the center and tries to go over the wall to get a drink. Sophie talks to him about it, even though he insists he doesn’t have a problem or need help. After she leaves, he hears Sterling talking about how the company would cover his treatment, with a small deductible. Nate swing at him…and puts a hole in the wall. Sterling was never there.
