Choices is the fourth episode of the first season of The Story of the Island. Eric feels guilty about not going with Jessica to rescure Brent. In flashbacks, Eric discusses being a "flake" with his friend, Elliot.


Eric walks over to Harry.

Eric: What should I do?

Harry: Huh? What?

Eric: Jessica and some other survivors are going to go after Brent. Should I go with her? It's dangerous...

Harry: No. Don't tell your little girlfriend that I said this, but she isn't the brightest crayon in the box.

Eric: But she doesn't need to die!

Harry: You don't need to die!

Eric: I don't know what to do.


Elliot (Eric's friend): I'm sorry, but you're a flake. Admit it.

Eric: I am a flake.

Elliot: Nice. Now, get a job.

Eric: I have a job.

Elliot: Writing poetry is not a job.

Eric: God dammit, it makes me money and I enjoy it. It's a job!

Elliot: Yeah, it makes you about $60 a month. Eric, you need to stop mooching off your granny, and get a damn job!

Eric: I don't know what to do.

On the island

Carey (a 30 year old survivor) walks over to Eric

Carey: You going?

Eric: Huh? Oh! No. Not with Jessica.

Carey: Me neither. But I feel bad. Brent is in trouble. I just...don't want to leave my children here.

Eric: Oh. Man, the only reason I have is...nevermind...
