Eliza, in spite of the fact that she doesn't really need to defend how "deserving" she is to Twila, decides to continue and thus validate this silly line of reasoning by countering that perhaps Twila herself doesn't deserve to be there. Her problem being that she doesn't seem to know why not. "At least I played the game and worked hard," Twila says sharply as she continues to prepare for bed. "Working hard is not necessarily playing the game," Eliza says with the mysterious tone that a remark can only muster if it has high intelligence or a total absence of content. Eliza goes on to argue that it's more important to have energy at challenges, and points out that she has emerged victorious in a couple of noteworthy instances, so maybe she knows what she's doing. Twila gets frustrated at Eliza for abruptly making a good argument, and snots that Eliza of course has plenty of energy, since she doesn't work around camp. Eliza's response has lots of squeaky sputtering in it, but it amounts to "Well, duh." "If you conserved your energy," Eliza says, growing squeakier by the minute, "maybe you could do better at challenges." And then the music comes to a halt, and there is literally chirping, and then Eliza adds, "Probably not, but maybe." Heh. Twila throws in a sarcastic "Probably not; you're right," because she can't think of anything else. Repetition is the last refuge of the gobsmacked. "The only reason you're here, Eliza, is because everybody's used you up to this point," Twila says, finally gathering her thoughts. Well, Twila, you can tell that to Sandra, who's entire million-dollar-winning philosophy was, "Use me! Use me!"
