Stephanie and Jed drink from little tin cups and agree that exerting energy on shelter is a waste of time; Jed calls the project "superfluous." ["This comment is so phenomenally stupid that I don't even know where to begin to dispute it." -- Wing Chun] Stephanie mockingly conjectures that they really don't need food and water, so perhaps the tribe is indeed right in focusing completely on shelter. Jed fries up coconut while Stephanie carries water. In an interview, Stephanie tells us that the others don't understand what to do in a survival situation. She explains that Jed has been attending to the food and she's been getting the water, and she's not sure how the others would fare in their absence. We see Jed ministering to Robb with a cup of water; Robb tells us that although he was initially upset that Jed wasn't doing his share of work on the shelter, he's made other contributions. Robb won't let Jed's lack of work upset him, because he wants to be friends with everyone. Except, clearly, Shii Devil.
The spirits sing and sigh. Ah, ah, ah. Members of Chuay Gahn discuss how long it's taking Helen and Jan to return to camp from their errand. If Clay is going for the gnome look, he should continue to stand beside Ted. The group thinks Helen and Jan have been gone close to five hours, and they agree that it's a three-hour trip at most. At least, Clay thinks, they should be able to see the canoe but, he squeals, they "ain't seen nothing!" By now, Helen and Jan have arrived at another cove. Jan bails water from the canoe while Helen heads off again in search of the water hole. They're finally in the right place, and Helen is very pleased. She exclaims, "Thank God I finally found the water source." There's a lot of emphasis on that "I" -- far more than measly italics can convey. As she scoops water into the tribe's jug, she voice-overs that the trip was like being lost in the desert: it all looks the same after a while. They overshot their destination and tried every beach until, she tells us, "All of a sudden God just put it in my mind, I guess." She complains that she's extremely dehydrated. As Helen lugs the water back to the shoreline, Jan blissfully floats besides the canoe. Helen looks annoyed, but that might be her permanent expression.
