1.18 "Numbers" - ABC.com - Official LOST wikiSynopsis: Hurley discovers some familiar numbers on Rousseau's stolen papers. He sets off across the island in search of Rousseau so he can get some answers about these numbers. When a group of survivors finally find Rousseau, she confesses that she does not know what the numbers mean, that they were repeated over and over by a radio signal that led her group towards the island years ago.

Flashback: This week's flashback reveals that Hurley used a set of numbers that some believed to be cursed to play the lottery. When Hurley wins a multi-million dollar jackpot, his life starts falling apart and he starts to believe that the numbers really are cursed.
