Back from commercials, Raro is muttering about what the hell the other tribe is doing here. "It's the three that we can't stand," Rebecca says unhappily as she takes another bite of food. Heh. Me too, pretty much. Cao Boi is all over-the-top happy and so forth, because he just likes to bond with people and cure their illnesses. I wonder if he knows any tricks for annoyance. He hugs Nate. Adam interviews that he was very shocked to see these people show up. Dude, dude! Parvati explains how to pronounce her name, and just as people have been pronouncing it, it's "PAR-va-tee." Not "POV-er-tee," and not "par-VAT-ee." This takes Cao Boi a minute, but he gets it...kind of. Adam says that he didn't like it at all that these people showed up: "I don't think they should be on our island." He says that it's their turf and their territory. "They've got their own island," he says. Cao Boi's efforts to make conversation go nowhere, and Parvati interviews that "it was like awkward silence, crickets chirping..." Then, as she puts it, Cao Boi gave a speech about "Chinese symbology." I'll be damned that symbology turns out to be a word, which I believe Parvati totally did not know and was strictly lucky about, but I am still blowing the whistle on "Chinese."
So now, Cao Boi Tells A Story. He starts off talking about how his culture reveres horses and dogs and some other things. Not boobies, though. And he explains how in your life, you see that it's full of monkeys and rats. (God, seriously.) But then he kind of keeps talking, and we fade to the sun, and we fade back, and he's...still talking. Jenny yawns. Clouds roll by. The editors get silly, because they had to watch all the raw footage of this, and they do not appreciate it. Cao Boi is still talking. Stephannie says that, after some time passed, "it was a little bit much." Yeah. That much, we got.
Cao Boi talks about how they're going to take some of the healing fruits (noni, apparently), and then he wants to know if they want to work together to get some coconuts and split them. Adam says not on his island. They can go to the other island and do it. Because this is war! And then Cao Boi decides to beg for part of their reward in the form of spices, but they basically all look at him like he's nuts. There have been times when people have shared rewards, I know, but this is not going to be one of those times. I think you have to at least not be actively annoying. To his credit, Cao Boi does only ask the one time, and then he quits. Adam says that he doesn't like being invaded when everything is so "primal." I don't think Adam is exactly an expert on what is "primal," to be perfectly honest. Not to keep bringing up The Grind, but...come on.
