Paschal rubs mud all over his body while Neleh squats and most likely pees in the water next to him. He's scrubbing and scrubbing and scrubbing, but he's not getting clean. Or is he getting technically clean, but not metaphorically clean? Because we're definitely supposed to take this as Paschal finally "getting dirty." He tells us in a voice-over that he has no clue how to play the game, and he doesn't want to know, either. He explains that he tends to lay back and figure out the "lay of the land" before taking any action, and that he's like that in the courtroom and in life. He also believes himself to be fair and consistent, and to his credit, we haven't yet seen anything to disprove that. Just wait a few minutes, though.
The tribe packs up their stylish thatched bags, now available at Payless. Tammy starts packing and then stops, perhaps realizing that she's sticking around no matter what. Or perhaps she's debating giving away her immunity, and thus she'd be as much at risk as any of the others. Sean explains that he's packing up all his stuff because he's fully prepared to go tonight. He says he doesn't want to go out "like a wimp," thinking fifth, sixth, or seventh place is the best he can do. He says he wants to go out having given it his best and if it's tonight -- in ninth place -- at least he will have tried. John and Sean have a conversation, and John acts like they're buddies and gives Sean a chump punch on the shoulder. Neleh and Paschal make perplexed faces, and then the tribe hikes around the side of a little mountain.
