Later, Jon peers into one of the boat windows. "You know how much I like myself?" he says. "Seeing how good I look right now is a great thing." Apparently, the boat window works like a funhouse mirror of some sort. Lill, meanwhile, walks around the boat, inspecting the various knots. "Square knot," she proclaims at one point. "I am the Scoutmaster!" Hee. Jon tells her she's drunk; she insists she's only had three-quarters of a beer. Yep, she's drunk. The final indicator would be if she agreed with Jon about how good he looks, of course.
We swing around the boat, all "her name is Rio" and stuff, and then Jon and Lill are trying to catch some fish and make a productive day of it. I'm not sure who wrote all the pirate music they're using this year, but I have to say, they have done an admirable job of finding several different types of pirate music. This is the Adventure Pirate Music, as opposed to the Merry Pirate Music and the Ominous Pirate Music. You can tell this is an adventure rather than merriment, because you hear strings instead of tootling. "What happens if I get [a fish]?" Lill asks. "Uh, reel it in," Jon says. It's nice to see him in a situation where he can be The Smart One. I doubt it happens very often. Jon and Lill discuss the fact that they'd like to be able to take some fish home, but as the picturesque sunset grows around them, no fish-catching is actually seen.
When Jon and Lill return to camp, they explain to their disappointed tribemates that the fishing was unsuccessful. Given that it looked like the hooks were baited and dropped by the boat guys, and that the boat guys were apparently in charge of where to go and where to fish, if Jon and Lill didn't get bites, it would seem to me that Rupert wouldn't have done any better, so Sandra can take off that scrunchyface right now, thank you very much. Spear fishing is one thing, but if you're fishing from a boat with a line and nothing's biting, there's nothing you can do about it if you can't control where you are. The fish aren't going to jump into the boat just because Rupert catches fish for the tribe. In fact, they might hold that against him, don't you think?
Rupert explains that he pulled Lill aside immediately and tried to assure her that if she sticks with him, she can make the final two. Please. He told her just last week that she could do no better than final six, and she knows very well that he won't vote against Christa and Sandra. Too little too late, there, big guy. We see them talking in night-vision, and Rupert voices over that he was trying to figure out whether Jon was trying to suck Lill into a plot. Lill tells him Jon wasn't, and Rupert explains that he therefore now knows that Lill is "wholehearted with [him]." I think Rupert reads other people about as well as I read Sanskrit. "I wanted to hug and kiss her!" he says happily. Wow. Getting played by Lill has to be a low point in anyone's life, strategic-thinking-wise. Rupert gives her hand a smooch, and she looks very miserable. She is suffering. He is being manipulated. Heeee hee.
