Kate Austen owned a New Kids On The Block themed lunchbox which she shoplifted when she was young.
A New Kids On The Block lunchbox is shoplifted by young Kate Austen and her friend Tom Brennan. The shop owner catches them and recognizes kate as Diane Austen's daughter. When he threatenes her of calling her mother, Jacob appeares and offeres to pay for the lunchbox.
He hands over the lunchbox to kate and makes her promise that she will never steal again. Jacob blesses her by tapping on her nose telling "Be good Katie".
Time CapsuleEditKate and Tom make a Time Capsule using the lunchbox and burries it underneath an old oak tree.
Years later, Kate approaches Tom at the hospital that he works, and asks him to help her meet his mother who is believed to be dying, in the same hospital. Later at Tom's house, Kate mentions the Time Capsule to him. Tom agrees to retrieve the box after kate explains that it might be the last time they could retreive the box. Kate and Tom arrives at the oak tree that they burried the lunchbox underneath, at night, and retrieves the box together.
They find a red cap, tom's Toy Airplane, and a cassette inside the box. Tom is happy and surprised to see his Toy Airplane.
Tom and Kate listen to the audio cassette together,which contains a conversation between young Kate and Tom.
YOUNG TOM: Is it on? I don't think it's on.
YOUNG KATE: It's on.
YOUNG TOM: Okay, this is Kate Austen and Tom Brennan and this is our dedication for our time capsule, here on August 15th, 1989. Hey, give me that back.
YOUNG KATE: Why are you putting this stupid plane in there?
YOUNG TOM: Because it's cool, Katie. I got it when I flew to Dallas by myself.
YOUNG KATE: Ooh, that is cool, just like this time capsule.
YOUNG TOM: It'll be totally cool when we dig it up in like 20 years.
YOUNG KATE: How do you know we'll be together?
YOUNG TOM: Because we'll be married and you'll be a mom and we'll have 9 kids.
YOUNG KATE: I don't think so. As soon as I get my license we should just get in a car and drive. You know, run away.
YOUNG TOM: You always want to run away, Katie.
YOUNG KATE: Yeah, and you know why.
The audio tape reminds Kate and Tom of their old times and the two end up making love.
