This has been bugging me since the epi aired. I just really felt like some of Charlie's lines were so, I don't know, out of place or something.
Why would he say Hurley owed him (jungle conversation)? Hurley didn't ask for any help searching for Danielle ; the "good guy gang" decided he needed to be rescued.
Just stupid stuff I got stuck in my head!

When did he say that? I couldn't find it anywhere in the transcript.
Edit: I did find this: (Hurley stops and turns around. He takes a step toward Charlie. Charlie takes
a step back.)
HURLEY: I am not crazy. I've got my reasons for --
CHARLIE: (interrupts) I think I have a right to know.
(Hurley stares at Charlie.)
HURLEY: Okay. All right, you wanna know?
CHARLIE: (nods) Yeah.
Not exactly the same wording, but kind of the same gist as what you said. Is this what you were thinking?

He didn't use those exact words but he did want an explanation.
I assume it was because Charlie was worried about him. When your friend starts acting like a 'loon' and takes off into the jungle that has monsters and polar bears and who knows what else when before he had showed NO interest in doing so...I think I would want to know why as well.

Yeah, that's it. I do understand the friend thing and maybe that's just the way guys talk to eachother. I still think it was strange though. It seemed more like he was demanding an explanation in return for his coming into the jungle of mystery after him.
I'm probably just makin sumpin outta nuttin.

I figured it was just a "come on, I'm risking my life here to help you out, I deserve to know why" kind of question, too.

I liked in that scene how the writers worked in another reference that one character gets and the other doesn't: Charlie calls him a "loon" (crazy person) but doesn't know that Hurley had been in a lockup with Lenny and friends.
