Lost: Desmond calls his constant: Penny, 8 years later, "The Constant" (Season 4, Episode 5) (28 Feb. 2008) Desmond wakes in the bathroom, the sink overflowing with water. After refreshing his face, he goes to see Penny. She opens the door to a distraught Desmond and says she wants to have a "clean break" from Desmond, but he insists she listen to him, pleading for her phone number. After entering the flat, he tells her that he needs her phone number so he can call her in eight years (December 24, 2004). Ultimately even though she doesn't understand why he just can't call her tomorrow and after promising to leave if she gives him the number she gives him Desmond her number: 7946 0893. She pushes him out the door while he pleads that she not change the number. Desmond comes back and tells Sayid the London phone number. Sayid repairs the phone, dials it, and passes it to Desmond. Desmond engages in a joyous and tearful call with Penny where she tells him she has been looking for him for three years, also confirming to Desmond her conversation with Charlie from the Looking Glass. Penelope is wearing a ring on the ring finger of her right hand. She knows about the Island, has researched it, and is desperately trying to find him. They each say they love the other as the phone battery dies out. Desmond then thanks Sayid by name, now with his memory back. He is, he says, "perfect" ----------------------------------------­----------------------------- Penny Widmore: Hello? Desmond Hume: Penny? Penny Widmore: Desmond? Desmond Hume: Penny...
