songs--"Main Title" (Composed by J.J. Abrams)

  1. "Make Your Own Kind of Music" by Mama Cass Elliot

Flashback--Jack Shephard

  1. Jack encounters his future wife, Sarah

Trivia: During the first flashback scene, the man brought into the ER with Sarah is Mr. Rutherford. Careful observers will realize that this is in actuality Shannon's father. Also, Mr. Rutherford's time of death is announced in the background of the scene as "8:15." Oceanic 815 was the flight number of the plane that crashed on the island and both 8 and 15 are in the sequence of Hurley's numbers.

Title Meaning: This title comes from dialogue between Jack and Locke in "Exodus, Part 2" when Locke refers to Jack as a man of science and himself as a man of faith. The title also refers to Jack's flashback in which he was a man of science, rather than a man of faith, regarding the operation on his future wife, Sarah.
