Thinks the numbers that won him the lottery are cursed.
-Got the #'s from a fellow patient while he was in a psych hospital. The patient got the #'s from a radio transmission that he heard at a listening station while in the South Pacific with another person(can't remember why they were at the listening station). The #'s were repeated over and over. The #'s weren't supposed to used according to the patient and said they would bring bad luck. The patient is still in the psych hospital.
-Hurley went to find the other man who was station at the listening station. That man(can't remember name) lived in Australia with his wife. That man committed suicide when "bad things" began to happen after he won an impossible guessing game using the #'s.
-Danielle is the first person to believe those #'s are cursed, like Hurley. Danielle seems to like Hurley. She gave him the battery they needed.
-Those #'s appear on the mysterious hatch.
After watching Hurley's ep., I'm starting to believe that Hurley has a very important part to this story.
