As the tribe awakes the next morning, Brian lies in a fetal position with his back arched so his butt sticks way out, but it doesn't turn Clay's head the same way Erin's ass did. Jake tells us that it's an interesting time because both sides are trying to determine how to get ahead in the game. He's concluded, apparently, that the best way of doing so is to boast about his cruelty to animals, telling a long-winded story about shooting a deer "right square in the ass." He prefaces the story by deeming it "hysterical," which always bodes poorly for both story and storyteller. While Jake chatters on, Ted voice-overs that Jake relayed his adventures as if the others would be "overly wowed" by them. Jake then tells us in an interview that his attitude was, "Guys, I'm an adventurer just like you. I just happen to be an old adventurer." His story also includes the assertion that the deer had the "prettiest open chest and neck shot that you've ever seen in your life," but I think some of the more lascivious cameramen would beg to differ. As Clay says in an interview that everyone in the group is sick of Jake's "Roy Roger tales," we rejoin the group where Jake has moved from the dead deer to a story about parachuting over an airport runway and the resulting "ka-pack!" sound of his breaking ankle. And I'm so glad the deer-shot-in-the-ass story didn't include sound effects. The other members of the group feign amusement, except Magilla, who hovers around looking blatantly uninterested. Ted snits in an interview that he doesn't know much about parachuting, but the story sounded far-fetched. He says, "In the middle of a [sic] airport? Aaaah...I would imagine that's some type of FAA violation." Jake then starts bragging that he's broken his ankles playing football, skydiving, motorcycling and skiing. In short, he's bragging about being either very careless or very clumsy. Or unusually brittle. In any case, Clay tells us that Jake thinks he's being "smooth" and conniving while attempting to suck them all in with his stories. He imitates Jake by drawling, "Hey, I'm just a good old mountain man that goes out and kills them elk, falls down them mountains, and wrestles grizzles and I fight off men with alligators." Hee. And although he is imitating Jake, it sounds a good bit more like the longlost verse of Arlo Guthrie's, "Alice's Restaurant." We cut away as Jake cracks himself up while no one else laughs.
Now it's nighttime again, and Clay stares at the moon before turning to the others and exclaiming, "Hey! Does anybody miss their family?" as if the possibility has just occurred to him. Helen and Ted emphatically proclaim that they do, and Clay says it's the hardest thing he's ever done. He then reveals that his twenty-three-year-old son told him just to look at the moon, and he'd give him all his strength and energy. So Clay's son is some freaky moon-energy telepathic conveyer? Cool! Clay continues to stare at the moon, and Ted asks if he's going to cry. Then Helen launches into a gruesome version of "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" as Ted continues to encourage Clay to cry with, "That's what I wanna see! I wanna see some boo hoo!" The he should come on over to my house when Helen's singing. At some point, the violin background music begins to accompany Helen, which is kind of funny. Not funny enough for me to prevent me from great joy when she finally wraps it up. Come to think of it, Helen sounds a lot like Snow White, which is not a compliment. Ted shrieks because he thinks Clay is finally crying, but Clay denies it.
