Before you know it, people get to shore and begin to scamper up onto the rocks. Nicole takes this moment to demonstrate that if a dress is wet enough, even a thong can leave a visible panty line. Morgan immediately dissolves, as Nicole, Darrah, and Ryan O. run off toward the village, leaving Tijuana, Morgan, Osten, Lillian, and Ryan S. to gather up the life ring and the shoes. Ryan S. interviews that he was disappointed that instead of gathering to formulate a strategy, the team instantly splintered upon arrival. He particularly noted how Ryan O. went off all alone as if he "wasn't even part of the tribe." As we see, Ryan O. does have a plan, and that plan is to start by finding the boat, probably so that they have an idea of how much time and money they can spare buying supplies. It's not a bad plan, except that when he reaches the boat dock, Ryan O. realizes that he has come to inquire about how long the ride will take and how much it will cost without bringing...his map. Therefore, he is stuck posing the following genius question to the boat pilot: "What's the most to go pretty much anywhere?" Reasonably enough, Boat Guy looks at Ryan O. like he's the biggest moron Boat Guy has ever seen. "Screwed up this one," says a sheepish Ryan O. as he walks away, realizing that he's just set a new standard for first-episode folly of this particular kind.
Elsewhere in the village, some of the boys of the Drake tribe are bringing their life ring up a hill with their meager collection of possessions in it. Burton and Shawn leave an exhausted and jeans-bemoaning Rupert to sit with the stuff and wait while they (presumably) go off in search of the rest of the tribe and the necessary supplies. While Rupert is sitting with the life ring, most of Morgan brings its life ring up and plunks it down next to Rupert. Then, they all leave. "This is definitely a pirate adventure," Rupert growls in an interview, adding, "Pirates pillage. Pirates steal." Back in the village, he steps over to the Morgan life ring and retrieves all of Morgan's equally meager collection of possessions -- looks like it's mostly the shoes that the members of Morgan were wearing when they jumped, as well as some miscellany like insoles. Happy with the take, he walks off, dragging the ring behind him. Rupert now makes his way to a couple of little market stands, where he trades one of the pairs of shoes for a knife and another for a pineapple. (I kind of think he got taken on that last transaction, but...whatever.) "Yeah, it's a harrrrd life livin' the pirate's life," Rupert says, just barely holding back the "arrrrrr" he clearly wants to add at the end. I will allow the pirate accent once. Once. That's pretty much my Pirate Accent Yearly Allowance, right there, so let's not make it a habit, Rupert.
