Anthony talks to Alex, who doesn't want to commit, but admits that his vote is going to be for either Anthony or Rocky. Anthony tells Alex that Rocky's emotional "heart" sometimes causes him to flip out. Alex acknowledges that this is true enough. Back at the fire, Mookie accidentally steps on a coal in his bare feet. Somehow, Rocky winds up mad at Mookie, who is a little mad in return over being bitched at while nursing his burned foot. Alex and Edgardo are standing around with Alex while this is happening, and they ask whether those two fight a lot. Anthony smiles, and basically says that as long as you keep Rocky happy, he's okay, but otherwise...watch out. "Does he get cranky?" Alex asks. Anthony grins and looks down at his hands, and says, "Yeah." Edgardo interviews that "Rocky has a few screws loose." He's bossy, he hollers...you know the drill. Edgardo also complains that "Anthony's his little bitch," because Rocky constantly yells at Anthony to do things. Edgardo basically says that he would never be Rocky's friend, ever, and doesn't like him, although he manages to say it in a sort of management-consultant kind of way. He adds that he wouldn't want Rocky there post-merge, because Rocky will only cause problems.
Edgardo goes with Anthony to get firewood, explaining that Alex isn't sure what to do, because of Rocky. Anthony gently pushes the idea that "Rocky's really volatile." Edgardo tells him plainly that the vote is "50-50" Anthony or Rocky.
Back at camp, Rocky is whining about how Anthony is probably...whining. "We've been here seventeen days, bro. How about thank you and see you later, you know?" says Rocky, anticipating that people are going to jump in and agree with him, and clearly surprised when he hears nothing. He keeps going in his mock address to Anthony: "Did an all right job, and just go!" Rocky gives a snotty interview about how he's not going to miss Anthony, and it's one of those moments where the only satisfying thing about it is that while Rocky will probably survive this week, he's blissfully ignorant about the peril he's in, and has no ability to recognize that he's well past done for, even if he manages to win this skirmish. What Rocky lacks in class, he makes up for in failure to appreciate irony, you might say. Hilariously, Rocky interviews that Anthony has no "social skills." The funny thing is, Anthony has no social skills of the kind you need in Survivor. I suspect Anthony's social skills are okay elsewhere, with the exception of, indeed, general nerd-ness that many of us do not consider fatal. He needs to be around other nerds. Rocky goes on to say that when Anthony tries to do anything to help himself, "he has to go around like, no offense, like a girl, like a little female -- '[whimpering sound]' -- and try to work on your sympathy." Oh, boy.
