Night. Kendal and Eric chill on top of the RV. Kendal holds a small stuffed monkey. Of course she does. Eric asks when her mom gave Kendal her wedding ring. Kendal says it was last year, and that Mrs. Kendal couldn't believe that Kendal wanted the ring; Kendal says that Mrs. Kendal felt it was just a symbol of a bond between her and "a man that got divorced, you know?" No. I don't, Kendal. She goes on to tell us that her dad left when she was little and disappeared for six months and finally turned up dead in a parking lot -- he had killed himself. Yikes. Shitty. She reads that the ring says, "Eternal Love." She says it means something different to her now. She goes on to camera-talk that she's never talked to her mom about her dad much, and she could but she's never wanted to.
Day. A stream. A deer. If this were TNN, that deer would be dead. ["Not anymore. If this were the TNN of the present day, that deer would be on TNN's eighteenth Star Trek: TNG rerun of the day." -- Wing Chun] Kendal and Rachel walk, limping, through the woods. It looks like the end of a failed jogging trip. They bitch, as usual, about Sarah. Rachel moans that Kendal seems to be talking to Sarah more and Kendal quickly defends herself by claiming that Sarah frustrates her. Rachel goes on to say that Sarah doesn't care about being a competitive person and she just can't believe it and this is what Road Rules is about (that's true). Rachel then camera-brats that she's been "let down" by Sarah; she goes on to call Sarah the team's weak link. Kendal now says that, if they're all putting in 120\% to cover for someone else, does that person deserve to be there? Well, 120\% times five is exactly 600\%, so that makes up for Sarah! Perfect! What's the problem? Rachel then camera-talks that after the next mission they lose, Sarah is gone. (I know they don't like her, but really, why is it just assumed she's gone? I mean, I know she is, but it's just totally accepted, and no one has questioned if she deserves it. I mean, yes, she does, but still, it's not usually as cut and dry and out in the open as this. All right, I'll return now to not giving a shit. Thanks.)
Map. They go to Charleston, South Carolina. Then to the Citadel. Rachel describes it as a castle, "because the gates open up, and let you in." Wow. That's a brilliant analogy! Running. Marching. Uniforms. Tanks. Marching. The kids driving. Flag. RV. The kids arrive and meet Regimental Commander Cox. (Hee, Cox.) He shakes all their hands, and tells them he should be addressed as "Mr. Cox." (Hee hee.) He tells them he's in charge of "exactly...about two thousand cadets." He tells them to follow, and then walks five feet.
