LOST Season 1 - Smoke Monster Hint?

I started re-watching LOST a couple of days ago and right now I'm watching "Walkabout."  One of the best episodes in the series in my opinion.  I noticed something that I've never noticed before.  Someone out there has probably mentioned this before, but perhaps not.  

While "Colonial" Locke is at work on the TPS reports at the box factory.  The calculator (adding machine whatever) makes a noise when printing the numbers on the paper that sounds like....
The Smoke Monster.  I thought that was pretty cool, since it was related to numbers and John Locke.


  1. Yeah. I noticed that when I rewatched the first season. Also, in one of the very first episodes, possibly the Pilot, they hear the monster, and Rose says that it sounds very familiar to her. She grew up in the Bronx, and New York City taxi cabs use printers much like John's in order to print your receipt.

    There are other sounds on the island that may also sound "familiar". For instance, the beeping sound of the clock in the hatch is actually the sound of a grocery store checkout scanner! Perhaps there was a flashback in a convenience store or something where they showed this sound in someone's past. That would be interesting but I'm fairly certain it hasn't happened yet. They DID however show that this is the EXACT sound that Desmond's microwave at home made! ("Flashes Before Your Eyes" I think) But then again, this may have been his imagination as it was never clear whether or not the events were actually occuring or were just in his mind while he was turning the key.

  2. I love the attention to detail in LOST
