On the television show "Lost", Penny Widmore is Charles Widmore's (Alan Dale) estranged daughter and Desmond Hume's (Henry Ian Cusick) girlfriend. She believes that Desmond has been lost at sea and searches for him for years before hearing a garbled transmission that alerts her to the fact that he is indeed alive. Penny rescues Desmond and six other survivors from Oceanic Flight 815 at the end of Season 4. She and Desmond later marry and have a son, Charlie.
"Des, I've been looking for you for the past three years. I know about the island. I've been researching and then when I spoke to your friend Charlie, that's when I knew you were still alive. That's when I knew I wasn't crazy. Des, are you still there?"
