Ted's now up against Shii Devil, and makes a point of being sure to be "in the zone." They go at it from their knees this time, as the members of Sook Jai yell again for Shii Devil to grab hold of Ted and jump on his back. She looks distraught, because as a Human Resources specialist she's used to handling conflict in a different way. They finally go for each other, and Shii Devil ends up in the water, where she repeats exactly what Stephanie did, but without the same success -- or lack thereof, so she doesn't get yelled at.
It appears now that Ted has decided to squat in the attack zone and await further misguided attacks from Sook Jai. Brian bypasses Ted in the zone as Jed leaves his tribe's starting point. He runs directly for Brian -- who had moments ago passed Ted in the zone and is thus far beyond it -- and rams into Brian, knocking him off. Grindia yells, "He's not in it. He was not in it!" surprisingly choosing under- over overstatement for once. Peachy is now extraordinarily irritated and unPeachy-like as he yells at moronic Jed and complains that they're making Peachy sound like a "broken record." Peachy sounds like a broken record every week what with the "sixteen strangers" and the "fire represents life on the island," and the "once the votes are tallied," but he's never minded before. In any case, Chuay Gahn is now one basket away from victory. Grindia appears to be on her knees barking at Clay as he dances toward the finish line. Meanwhile, Ted is crawling along the bamboo. Backwards. Penny tries to attack Clay from behind as he exits the zone, and that's the one time they should have tried to get away with playing dirty, since the tribe had nothing to lose. But girls named Penny don't play dirty, so that's that. Chuay Gahn wins, and Clay's painfully erect, silhouetted nipples scar me for life. The Red Berets float over and Clay yells "Fish! Fish!" as he pats his stomach. Grindia grabs Clay for a kiss, then Ted. The moment is grinding-free.
The members of Sook Jai walk back to camp looking bothered and, in Penny's case, bloody. In an interview, Robb whines that he doesn't mind being beaten, but he's bitter because they got "chomped." He complains that he only had to put his hands out to knock Clay off. If "out" means "around Clay's neck." He calls Clay a "weak little whiny punk" and then scornfully mutters, "Backwoods hick!" He wants to know whether the others heard Clay, and makes a series of yodeling Muppet noises to imitate the sounds Clay made while Robb strangled him. Robb says it made him want to spit in Clay's face. In an interview, Shii Devil says that "Robb, idiot that he is," talks too much and has no time for logical thought because his mouth is always "flapping." Robb proclaims the tribe "ape strong," but he may mean "eight strong." He goes on to say Sook Jai will kick ass in the immunity challenge, which is what matters. He insists that he's not a sore loser because Sook Jai didn't lose to a better team; it lost by "a bunch of rules." In the end, he doesn't give a shit, because he "got a good shot on homeboy from the backwoods. And big Teddy wasn't so big!" Ken looks at Robb and smiles, but it's more "he's crazy and I'd better smile before he tries to choke me too" than "ha ha he's so funny." The Robb segment continues as he tells us that he was disappointed by the Red Beret reward, even though he knows they could have been helpful. He drools -- really, he does -- as he says, "I was hoping they'd bring like a big turkey or sumpin'. Sumpin'!" Robb's enough turkey -- or turkeyy as the case may be -- to go around. ["I am convinced that Robb was grown in a lab for the express purpose of starring in a reality show. He's as moronic as he is despicable, yet he's reasonably telegenic." -- Wing Chun]
