The camera closes up on a pan of boiling stuff, which Kathy introduces as "Mom's porridge." Pat's first taste prompts a variety of faces, none of which is as funny as the faces Sean makes. In a voice-over, Pat calls it "nasty food," and then groans for emphasis. Kathy tells him the porridge isn't bad when followed with an apple, and hey! Where'd they get the apples, anyway? Pat gives the other members of the tribe credit for eating his mother's cooking.
Now Pat, his brand-new sneakers, and his mom head off along the trail in search of food. Kathy lauds Pat for his abilities, deeming him "a natural." She says that finding "good root" is their greatest joy out there, and that sounds like a euphemism for something dirty. And something really, embarrassingly dirty is coming up: Pat's hands! In a confessional, he tells us the experience was "muddy and disgusting," and complaints that he got his hands dirty, which he usually doesn't do. He says he's "usually a pretty-boy," and whines, "I don't know what my buddies are gonna think. They'll think I'm crazy. They'll think my mother's crazy!" Then Pat calls Kathy crazy, and in her craziest voice, she responds, "Am I crazy? I'm not crazy!"
The remaining S6 sit at camp and relive their time with their family members. Vecepia wants to know how Paschal felt when he kissed Beverly, and luckily we're spared all of the charming details, such as, "It was like sucking on a warm, wet, semi-masticated mint." Vecepia tells us in a confessional that when she first saw Leander, she wanted to touch him to make sure he was real. She says there was "so much goin' on" and he was "lookin' so scrumptious!" She's elated from seeing him and his smile, and she keeps picturing in her mind the moment he emerged from his hiding place. Neleh says her mother was so excited that she couldn't concentrate, and thus lost the challenge by not heeding Neleh's marvelous directions. Poor Sean, meanwhile, is left only to talk about his "boys," and how Darryl told him he was in their prayers at home. Paschal concludes that it was "home bein' brought to each one of us." As the camera pans away, we see them generously trying to talk over each other about the greatness of their own individual visitors.
