Now at night, a slightly kinder, gentler cadet tells Sarah and Kendal that they're not interested in emotions, and that cadets at the Citadel have no emotions. "Sir, yes, sir!" yells Kendal. She tells us that she's trying very hard to keep it in, but then she loses it. Now some Chet Baker-looking cadet is all close to Kendal while ManlyRusskie looks on, asking her why she's crying if there is no problem. He so wants to do her. Now Kendal full-on camera-cries that it makes her think of her daddy and that they took her ring from her. Aw, man. I feel a tiny bit bad for her here. Suck. I hate when they do that.
Now in the boys' room, a cadet yells at Shane that he slammed a door, and that for someone who cost his team "fifteen doggone demerits" (oh, trying so hard not to swear) he shouldn't be slamming doors. Shane then camera-talks that he's smiling and they don't like him very much. Hee. Darrell is pissed, but Shane can't help it. They talk about the girls, saying they're having a bad time.
Now in the girls' room, Sarah states the obvious: that she is physically unable to do many push-ups; she shows off her puny arms. Rachel then giggles that she can't understand them, and Kendal says she wants to say, "Could you please slow down and enunciate, Sir." They laugh as Kendal says she hates this, and they all hate it, and she's starting to realize that the three girls are all really starting to get along. (Be careful with the Sarah-love, girl. It's kind of like getting too attached to the turkey you're fattening up for Thanksgiving dinner.) Rachel then says that, on a mission like this, you really bond, and that she's loving the two girls right now because they're her relief. Okay, isn't this the part, in the women's military movie, where the girl cadets get naked and do each other? I swear that's what's supposed to happen here.
Six in the morning. Taps plays. The mean cadets bum rush the kids' rooms and bang pots and yell as the kids get dressed. Shane laughs. ManlyRusskie advises the girls that they'd best get their rooms in order because they're going to get inspected later.
Now outside in the rain in fatigues, people are yelling at the kids when a fucking creepy old dude comes out. This is Colonel Powers. He obviously wants nothing to do with this shit. I don't blame him. Someone tells him that the Road Rules kids are ready for inspection. He eyeballs Eric and gives him one demerit for a crappy shoe shine. He yells for Shane to get his shoulders back -- Shane is standing all crazy uncomfortable. Powers gives him one demerit for his boot lacing and one for having a necklace on. He also gets one for his hat. Rachel then camera-talks that she thinks Shane might lose the mission for them on demerits.
