Twila lies down later, staring straight up toward the camera. "We've overthrown the queen and the little princess. People like that just piss me off, because they think they're so much freakin' better than everybody else," she says. And like I said, I'm convinced that this goes all the way back to the patronizing way Ami treated Twila from the very beginning. "We've got the power," Twila says with a little smile, raising her fists to enjoy the moment. "Chris, I, Scout, Li -- we have the power now." She pauses. "I have a great mind sometimes, I love it," she says, and laughs. And while it's more than a little off-putting to see anyone engage in quite this much self-congratulation, Twila is the only damn person in the entire tribe to get a clue and make a move since about Week 2, so relatively speaking, she is coming off as rather brilliant.
Back out at the fire, Scout is still talking to Ami. "Ami, you're cocky," she says, continuing where Twila apparently has now left off. "Yeah, I'm cocky," Ami says dubiously. "I'm also one of the most giving, loving, caring people," she says with impatience, as if it's so irritating to her that these qualities go unrecognized by others. After all, what's the point of being a good person if people won't sit back and let you have a million dollars? Ami has also apparently missed out on the fact that it's generally a reliable rule that people who are genuinely "giving, loving, caring people" don't find it necessary to tell everyone all the time how great they are. And..."giving, loving, caring"? You didn't even want to tell the guys how to open a coconut, jackass. Ami is not a peace goddess; she's a poser, and at bottom, not a very good sport, or she wouldn't be tormenting Twila for kicking her ass. At least Hatch, with his cry of, "I've been bamboozled!," recognized that you at least have to pretend you don't mind being outplayed, because you're going to look like a jerk if you don't.
In an interview, Ami tells us that she's now competing with all her heart. As opposed to the game to this point, where she hasn't been trying at all. That's the only reason she's in trouble, you know. She's too nice. She'll tell you so herself.
