Back at Chuay Gahn, they're happy and dry. Brian plays his (luxury item) guitar while Ted wails along with it. In the background, Jan raps, "Ted, Ted, Ted," but maybe she's just trying to commit his name to memory. Ted sings about steak, mashed potatoes, and raspberries, which happens to be Helen's favorite song. That and "I Know Everything There is to Know about Life and Such" and the lesser known "Who's the Boss? I'm the Boss!" A monkey peers at the tribe, and Tanya tells Brian it's "listenin' to [him]." But maybe it's just willing them to get the hell off his beach. They're all amazed that the monkey is tolerating their singing. They think he's cute, but wait until they see him baring his cuddly little teeth in the credits. Clay calls him "Magilla" and says it looked like he had "come to set in for a concert." As Jan empties the contents of an entire coconut onto the ground, she exclaims, "I'm not good at pourin!" Nor much else, it seems. Actually, as much as it amazes me to say, Jan's a good swimmer. As the tribe members toast themselves, Helen claims it as her "anniversary toast." In a choked-up interview, she explains that today is her twentieth wedding anniversary, and she's thinking about her husband. It would be nice to have a candlelit dinner to celebrate, but he knows where she is and what she's doing. She says they'll celebrate when she gets back home. But if Helen's anywhere near as bossy toward her husband as she is to her tribemates, I think there's a pretty big celebration going down right about now. (Unless he's into the bossy thing.) Ted whispers to the others that it would mean a lot to Helen if they "do do a celebration." Hee. He said "do do." The others agree, and in an interview Tanya tells us that they decided to pick some flowers and make Helen a crown to wear. Because every woman wears a crown on her anniversary. Still, Ghandia thinks the crown will make Helen cry. ["Later we will learn how important it is to Ghandia that Helen make with the waterworks. Why? Who the hell knows. I hate you, Ghandia." -- Wing Chun] Tanya is really excited that it's a secret.
