The cataclysmic series finale of Lost will be debated for weeks, I’m sure. However, despite the chaos that ensued and shouts of joy (and despair) that were issued around multiple neighborhoods by the time it was over, the night was memorable for more than just the ending of a six-season event.
Why, you ask? Oh, the power went out.
Ninety minutes before Lost.
Apparently, there was a fire at one of the substations, and electricity throughout our hot, humid city was gone. Thankfully, it came back on about thirty minutes before the finale (despite the fact that we heard frightful rumors of a 9:20 p.m. estimated power return), but, as a tribute to a show that has consumed countless hours of my life, I’d like to dedicate this post to the Lost quotes of the night.
Husband and Rindy’s husband discussing options for TV-watching as everyone’s electricity in the city was still off…
Husband: Well, your best idea was to change pants!
After the power was on…
Husband: I can’t believe they got the power on so quickly. There must be some Lost fans working for the power department.

Rindy: Where would people keep their money, if not in their bra?
During the finale…
Me: I’ve figured it out. They ARE going to end the series tonight, but there is going to be a spin-off. Called Found.
