At some point, Zach has the kitchen to himself again, presumably after lunch service has finished. And it's a veritable dish holocaust in there. Zach vows to go out and round up every single person he sees, "And they're going to do these dishes, whether they like it or not."
First up for the dish draft is Mike, who was going to do a little light religious reading, but Zach talks him into helping. The next kid flatly turns Zach down at first, but then agrees. Things don't go as well with Blaine, who mutters, "Yeah, I don't know, maybe," and then runs away, making Zach chase after him.
But ultimately, Zach seems to have assembled quite a force to handle the dishes, and he thanks everyone for their help. In fact, enough people are there to turn it into a social event, as we see everyone laughing and flicking dishwater at each other. Way more fun than sitting in the saloon drinking root beer shots with Taylor. Laurel interviews that Zach is doing a great job, and deserves Gold Star consideration. She adds that Zach is a good leader for Yellow. "Maybe even a better leader than Taylor," she ventures. Wow, don't go too far out on that limb there.
When everyone wakes up on Day 13, something weird is going on. For one thing, you've got "The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies" from The Nutcracker on the soundtrack. And for another, you've got snow falling outside. Different kids have different reactions to it. "Crap. I hate snow," Mike whispers at the window. Which got him some grief on the boards, but I remember a winter when I was his age that never seemed to end, and I'm still not entirely over it. But that was in Minnesota, of course, so there you go. Mallory tries to catch some snowflakes on her tongue. Somebody rides Sophia's bike through the snowy street. Jared stands outside and yells, "I wanna become a snowman!" Try less talking, then. Actually, that might be a good general rule for Jared.
