Rob approaches Butch, asking what he's doing. Butch grunts, "More firewood," before moaning, "Oooh, it's dry!" Rob says, "Butch, you love your firewood!" but Butch insists that he just loves the work, before preaching that if Rob wants to be successful in life, he can't sit back and let other people do the work for him. He orders Rob to get out there and "get the faaaare!" We see him coaching Rob "just [to] get what [he] can handle -- that's good! Don't probably [sic] lift too much 'cause we got several trips we could make." Rob humors Butch before explaining in an interview that he doesn't know how he became the "Junior Deputy Firewood Bitch." Hee. He looks off sideways and laughs, "I don't wanna be a team with Butch!"
The women lie in the shelter as Rob throws down yet another branch, wondering why this particular wood is so great compared to everything else in the forest. As the camera pans over various piles of wood, Jenna interviews that they have so much firewood -- under the shelter, by the fire, everywhere -- that they aren't even using it. She says, "I don't know what he does. I don't know if he talks to the wood?" We pan over to Butch muttering to himself over a pile of wood, "Oooh, man...this is niiiiiice!" As he hustles around bearing more wood, he voice-overs that it's very important to have dry wood in case of an emergency. Like in the emergency of a fire, maybe? He concludes, "I'm just a wood-crazy nut, I guess!" Hee. Butch tells Rob that the sun will come up soon, and after three more hours, the wood will be dry, and then they'll be ready to "rock and roll" and go get some more. Rob slowly asks, "And why are we gonna be able to rock and roll?" causing to Butch to get up and commence and indescribable dance through the jungle. As Rob cracks up, Butch walks like an Egyptian -- albeit a crazy Egyptian -- and says, "My wife says I embarrass her when I dance. I don't know why." He then stops walking like a crazy Egyptian, bends at the waist, and makes repeated grabby motions into the air. And if you've ever been to a Phish concert, you pretty much know exactly how this guy dances.
A sloth pokes around a tree and slowly examines its foot. Aw, cute foot-examining sloth. Rob and HeiDDi return to camp with treemail and read the clue: "To succeed in the future, you must learn from the past. Your coolest reward is also the last." Butch voice-overs that they're all anticipating a "big juicy reward," because it's the final one. As they prepare to head off for the challenge, Rob asks how Butch thinks they are doing on firewood if it rains, and Butch responds that they're okay. Rob presses whether they don't need to get more, as we see a close-up of Butch feeding the fire. We also get close-ups of the piles of firewood, the smoldering fire, and a Smokey the Bear warning poster. Except without that last part. The camera lingers on Butch's "Believe in Yourself" banner, and then a piece of wood dramatically snaps in the fire. Nope! Nothing going on with the fire or the wood.
