Bernard and Rose are content living on their own, share words of wisdom

Out in the jungle, Sawyer is questioning Rose and Bernard about where they've been for the last three years. He asks them if they heard him say to meet at the creek after the flaming arrow attack. Bernard says that they did hear him. Sawyer says that he's had Jin out looking for them grid by grid and Rose says "Yeah, we know."

Rose tells them that she and Bernard know that they joined up with the Dharma Initiative. Sawyer asks them why they didn't tell him they were out here so he could have brought them into the Dharma Initiative. Rose says "Because we're retired."

They go to where Rose and Bernard have been living which is a hut/house they built. They have been scavenging food and supplies from the Dharma Initiative to survive. Bernard says that people try all their lives to get a nice little place by the ocean where they can live in peace and he says that they did it.

Kate tells them that Jack has a bomb and Rose says "Who cares?" Rose tells them that "We traveled back thirty years in time and you're still trying to find ways to shoot each other?" Juliet says they just need to know where the barracks are so they can stop Jack or "You're going to be dead." Bernard says "So we die. We just care about being together." Sawyer glances over at Kate and Juliet notices and is bothered/hurt by the look.

Rose tells them that the barracks are five miles away and points them in the right direction. As they say their goodbyes and start to leave, Bernard seems to notice that something is wrong with Juliet and asks her if she wants to stay for some tea. Juliet briefly seems to consider staying, but then says "Maybe another time."

So Rose and Bernard seem to be the only people living on the island who seem to be completely at peace with their life. They may have had some struggles getting set up and stearing clear of other people, but they are content. They seem to disprove the idea that Jacob's black tunic wearing friend has that everyone that comes to the island destroys and corrupts.
