Suddenly Kathy, who is creeping out among the rocks, yells, "Hey you guys, get out here! I'm serious." She whistles for their attention, which is not my choice means of communicating with people, but to each her own. As long as Kathy's not whistling at me, that is. She keeps yelling and screaming, and I can make out the word "shells," but it sounds more like those shells are attacking her. The tribe finally starts moving very slowly, but as she keeps screaming, they start running -- probably because it sounds like she's being murdered six different ways. Seriously, it's at least a forty-five-second stream of yelling, and the only words I can make out are "oh my God" and "shells." In a confessional, John tells us that Kathy's communication style is "borderline abrasive." Borderline? ["Ha! That's what I said. The border is a distant memory to Kathy." -- Wing Chun] John then complains that Kathy's condescending. This is accompanied by a shot of Kathy lecturing her tribe on the fine art of turning over rocks. Kathy tells us in a confessional that it was exciting to find food, and that even though it was a minor accomplishment, she "started losing it." Someone picks up something that looks like a shiny black scrunchy crossed with a plunger. They're going to eat that? Then Paschal proudly shows off a little crab of the non-scuttling sort. Kathy tells us that the others were excited and "flipping rocks like mad." As Kathy continues rooting around underneath rocks, an animal bites her in the hope that she will finally shut up. Someone grabs at a round, rock-like animal that is attached to another rock, and it squirts out a bunch of water. John tells us that the situation was a "mixed blessing." He's happy that the tribe now has protein, but he wishes he'd found it himself.
