After the commercials, we return to Mogo Mogo, where a bird is wandering on the beach and a lizard is trying to eat what I'm pretty sure is not, despite appearances, a Brussels sprout. A crab is teaching a tai chi class that is sadly attended by only one other crab, but the sole attendee is very obedient, and when the instructor crab waves her claw, the attendee waves her claw back. Feel the burn! At camp, Shii Ann holds up a coconut and asks Ethan if he would eat it, given that she thinks it's rotten. He says he would, if she cooks it. Jerri interviews, a little disjointedly, that "everyone is on edge, regardless of whether people want to act like they're happy to see each other," which sounds like it would be from early in the game, doesn't it?
At camp, Jerri comes up and picks up part of the coconut Shii Ann is working on and asks what's in it. Shii Ann says that's the one she's going to "sauté," and then we see a Shii Ann interview in which she complains that Jerri is "rubbing [her] the wrong way." And what's her complaint? That Jerri is "only willing to do the chores you're already doing." I have to say, of all the accusations of laziness I've ever heard, that's one of the most bizarre and hard to understand. I think what we see next is that Jerri brings back the coconut half that she just took from Shii Ann, and Shii Ann has moved to another task, so Jerri offers her the coconut back and says that she'll take the new task if Shii Ann wants to finish the coconut instead, which seems totally reasonable and accommodating to me, but it offends Shii Ann for some reason. Shii Ann then interviews that she was going to "put some of the rotting coconut into the pot, and [Jerri] snapped at [her]." What happens, however, is that Jerri says, quite matter-of-factly and not snappishly at all, "I don't want any of the rotten stuff." Considering that Shii Ann just asked Ethan whether he would or wouldn't eat the rotten coconut, I don't see how she can be so pissy about Jerri's not wanting to eat it, but she is. Apparently if Ethan says it's fit to eat, Jerri has no right to decline. Shii Ann turns to Jerri and says, "Okay, well, I don't really care. I'm just trying to make sure people get what they want." Oh. Good one. Jerri -- trying (I believe) not to get into a fight about it, and now working on a different coconut on her own because she doesn't want to eat the rotten one -- says to Shii Ann, "Shii Ann, I can do this, so." And that's all she says. And she doesn't snap then, either. Call me a nut, but Jerri appeared to be totally reasonable to me in that scene, just saying that she didn't want to eat a rotten coconut, so she was happy to chop a non-rotten one up for herself, and Shii Ann is so bent on hating Jerri -- and, I have to say, bent on being such a suck-up to the men in some ways -- that she is taking the position that this behavior from Jerri is some kind of a princess maneuver. As long as you're willing to chop your own damn coconut, I don't see why turning down the rotten one is such a damn big deal, but to Shii Ann, it is.
