Sook Jai's flag rustles in the wind. It's still nighttime, but Stephanie is the only one left out in the rain. Morning on Day 5 dawns and rain trickles down. The other members of the tribe are awake inside the tent. Shii Devil is glad they completed the shelter, which kept the rain out. Jake points out that there are little holes in the tribe's roof, but thinks that one or two more layers will make it "dry as toast." Penny whimpers, "I sure would like some toast" as Jake covers her up with a rain suit. Shii Devil tells us how "interesting" it is that Jed snubbed the shelter then came to sleep under it. ["If by 'interesting,' you mean 'hypocritical' and 'asinine.' I hate you, Jed." -- Wing Chun] In an interview, he says he slept well and barely got wet during the night. He's not worried about whether it's okay with the others because, although he might not have worked on the shelter, he did fetch the water, and they should know he might choose to sleep there. Meanwhile, no one has seen Stephanie yet. Quite possibly because she's still curled up in fetal position by the fire's last dying ember. Jake tells us he has no "earthly idea" why Stephanie chose to remain out in the rain, despite her insistence that the coals were warm and also that she "absolutely loves the rain." I absolutely love the rain, too, but not sleeping in it. Ken thinks it's "very weird" that Stephanie spent all night in a torrential downpour; he says it seemed "pig-headed" to him, and points out that she's sick now. Shii Devil says it's "not wise" to be out in the rain with a cold. If Stephanie gets sick, Shii Devil thinks they will lose immunity and then "the game will really begin." Stephanie, meanwhile, can't even hold her head up.
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.
