In the ultra-authentic German strip mall joint called "Coffee Haus," the kids gather. Kendal sits at the counter making a pros-and-cons list of keeping the prizes or keeping Sarah. Meanwhile, Shane watches Eric and Darrell play chess. Kendal says that she thinks it's disrespectful for the guys to be playing chess while they should be agonizing and thinking. Oh, shut up. They know what they want to do. Why should they sit and write a stupid list while they could be driving themselves crazy with the annoying game that is chess?
Rachel takes Sarah out of the Coffee Haus to talk to her. They walk, Rachel saying that "social-wise" (hee) she'd vote off Shane, but "mission-wise," Sarah blows. Sarah agrees that she'd vote herself off, too, but she's not there for the prizes. (Ooh, good dig.) Rachel says she hates it and she knew this stupid vote would come down to something like this; it's her worst fear. Sarah says that she thinks her vote doesn't matter because everyone is against her. Yes. You are right. Rachel lies that she's still thinking and reevaluating. Now Sarah pulls out her theatre dreams and talks about how this is one of the hardest decisions anyone could possibly make, getting all Tennessee Williams on us. Oh, shut up. No, it's not. God, these kids are all weeping and moping and making lists and playing chess over booting someone a little early from a terrible, no-ratings reality show. Who gives a crap? Maybe this is such a big deal because Sarah's parents hate her and everyone knows she'd be going back to that? I don't know. Sarah goes on that she's finally becoming friends with these people and it's "piss-poor" timing. Nope, it works for me, the timing. It works just fine.
RV. Night. Rachel tells the boys that when she's alone with her she doesn't want to vote Sarah off (rowr!); she doesn't feel like she should have any right to end someone's trip, and that they're not above Sarah. Shane brings up the point that if they don't choose, then a random person is booted and they lose their shit.
God. Kendal and Sarah now take a walk. Kendal says that it's a fucked up situation. She says she's been going back and forth, but she wants her to know it's hard. Sarah looks at her like, "Yeah, really tough for you, Coaty."
