Day. Playground. Swings. Kendal and Sarah are being swingers as Sarah says she doesn't have many regrets. I don't know what she's talking about. She says that skydiving seems fun but the Citadel, not so fun. They should forbid her from talking about any mission she failed. She adds that she's ready to do something crazy and dangerous. Uh, okay. Kendal, in front of an American flag, tells us that Sarah is amazing (whatever you say) and that you stick with family. (Not if you're Sarah's folks.) Kendal tells Sarah she reminds her of her friend as a kid who was her "Angel" and would beat anyone up who would make fun of Kendal. Now Sarah camera-talks that she can't believe a "sorority girl" likes her. They lean back, swinging and screaming as some crap Girl Bonding song plays.
Now we get the other kind of girl bonding: talking shit about other people. Kendal and Rachel walk. Rachel says that Darrell keeps trying to mess with her and she keeps telling him that nothing is going to happen between them. We see a Night-Vision shot of it happening last night. He then called her a "cold person" and told her that he can go through this trip "with or without" her. Obviously poor Darrell is totally digging on her and she isn't on him. Methinks the player is being played.
We see Rachel and Darrell alone in the RV. SuddenlySappyDarrell tells her that she is making him like her again and soon he's going to be watching her in her sleep and stuff. "That's why I'm scared to mess with you, too," Darrell says. Aw. So sad. He says that he should shut up and then says he still wants them to be "cool" after this. This is such a good study of how a good play is constructed, because neither is saying a fucking word that makes any sense, but somehow through their demeanor and subtext, you know exactly what they're saying, and so do they. Darrell then basically tells her she shouldn't keep being with him if she just feels too sorry for him to break up with him. Aw. Poor Darrell. (I never thought I'd say that.)
