Back to Jenna, scooping manioc into a pan. She emphatically tells us that Survivor is not a vacation, but did she expect it to be? She's been pressed to her limits, with highs and lows and no in-betweens. She says that the game has been a chance to learn about herself, her life, and other people. In that order, obviously.
Matthew hacks for the very last time and tells us he's emerging from the game with a new perspective on life. He calls himself a "very intense individual," and thinks he might even be too intense and should go out and enjoy life more. He proposes that he spend more time watching television "versus how I've led my life to date -- for instance, I could spend twenty hours on a weekend studying Swedish." Hee. Although I'm not sure it's what he meant to say, Matt thinks watching television and twenty hours of Swedish study fall into the same category? I knew 90210 was enriching my life.
Matthew eats and boasts that they have two different types of fish, as Jenna preaches to us that we shouldn't "underestimate people because they're [sic] a woman or because they're small or skinny or something." How about if we underestimate people because they're lazy and whiny and spoiled and useless, then? Being on Survivor taught Jenna a valuable lesson: that she can push beyond her limits "especially for me being so young." She feels like she could handle anything we threw at her right now, and if I ever see Jenna on the street, and if I happen to have a rotten tomato in my hand, I'll be happy to help her test that theory.
A fish bubbles the water as we see Matthew in the new, small, red canoe while he voice-overs that he noticed their old boat floating nearby while he was fishing. He guesses that they forgot to tether it after boarding the seaplane, and that they won't be needing it much longer as it's the thirty-ninth day. Wee see him tugging the boat back to camp as he explains that he has some "ideas how [they] can, uh, use it." He piles wood into the boat and voice-overs that, in addition to the wood, he's planted the tribe's "treemail dude" on top, along with some "artifacts" from their campfire. His plan is to "basically light it on fire and send it off," and he thinks it's a great way to get some "closure" on the experience.
