Talking Rudy Doll and Rich hang out in the hammocks (this is the first time I've seen Talking Rudy Doll in a hammock), and Rich blabbers on while Talking Rudy Doll just looks around crankily. Rich says he believes everyone in the alliance; he's not sure Kelly is as "solid" as he hopes, but he feels very good about Sue. I like it when the editing pokes fun at Rich. Rich says he hopes they're serious and "if they're not, then they're brilliant, because they've played me well. They've played me beautiful." Like a violin, Rich, or a tuba. We then cut to a shot of Sue and her tattoo lurking very visibly outside of camp, saying once again that she'd rather it was just her and Kelly to burn Rich because it will "feel so good." Do you think Sue and Kelly want to "burn" Rich? Do you think it will make them feel good? Because I'm not quite sure, and I think I need to hear it a few more times to be convinced. Rich says that if they are playing him, he'll "shake those people's hands and say, 'Congratulations. You've...you know, Brilliant. Good job. You got it. Because you fooled me." Rich stutters at the very thought of being wrong. We then cut to a shot of Sue saying, "Me 'n' Kelly are takin' him down."
After the commercial, the Survivors strut down the beach together and find one cigar in the treemail. Gervase shrieks that they should "roll that bad boy, lace that bad boy, smoke it!" It's difficult to tell whether they think the cigar is challenge-related, and whether they even knew that Gervase had a baby on the way. Colleen reads Gervase's name with a question in her voice, and we discover that it's a birth announcement, which we already knew from last week's preview. Kelly just can't wait for an excuse to hug Gervase. Later, as the survivors sit around, Idiot Seanvant examines the cigar with an expression on his face like, "What is this thing from which smoke issues forth?" Rich says he didn't even know Gervase was expecting another child, and "four kids. Holy Moses." Gervase, in a confessional, tells us his situation: he had two children from a first relationship that didn't work out, and two more with Carmela. Which sounds perfectly reasonable to me. Rich probes into Gervase's personal life and asks if he and Carmela are "together permanently." Gervase says they're still working things out. I am curious to know if all these children were planned or accidents or some combination of that, but I'm not asking that question, because I understand that that's Gervase's business and not mine. But of course, since Gervase lives inside Rich's head as a figment of his imagination, Rich has the right to ask such questions.
