23 is one of "the numbers" on ABC's television show Lost. The series is 4 8 15 16 23 42. The number 23 specifically is referenced in various intentional "coincidences" throughout the series, such as the number of the terminal Flight 815 leaves from. In perhaps the most obviously referential scene, Hurley is repeating the entire sequence aloud, and Kate picks out the number 23, asking what it means to him. When Hurley hesitates to tell her about the synchronicities he has experienced in connection with the numbers, Kate tells him that coincidentally the number 23,000 relates to a significant event in her backstory.
