Miles finally tells Hurley his feelings about his father, Hurley is writing 'Empire Strikes Back'

As Miles and Hurley are heading back to the barracks in the van, Hurley tells Miles that in the future there's going to be an accident at hatch that's being built and then they'll have to set up the computer and push the button so the world doesn't end. Miles thinks Hurley's just an idiot. Hurley tells Miles that it's cool that he gets the chance to hang out with his father and maybe he can hold himself as a baby or change his own diaper. Miles slams on the breaks and tells Hurley he's only going to tell him this once. He says that he doesn't want to hang out with his dad or know him better because he wasn't around when he was little and he never knew him. He continues saying that his father is dead and gone and that he never cared him and nothing that he can do will ever change that. Hurley says that he's not gone though and they just dropped him off.

Miles turns the tables and says let's get into your business and grabs Hurley's notebook. Miles gets out of the van and starts reading from the notebook. It turns out that Hurley's been writing The Empire Strikes Back because it hasn't been made yet. Hurley says that he's seen the movie about 200 times and he figured that he'd make it easy for George Lucas and send it to him, but with a couple of improvements. Miles says that's the stupidest thing he's ever heard and Hurley replies "Well at least I'm not scared to talk to my own dad."

So the big Star Wars reference in the title of the episode "Some Like it Hoth" pays off here with Hurley writing the script. You've got to love Hurley for doing it because it's a very Hurley thing to do. He's apparently not convinced yet that he can't change the future.
