Neleh immediately begins pitching herself. She played "honestly fairly" and loved all her time out there; if she leaves now, it will be with "a smile and high head." And some new pretty clothes! ["My mom noted that this is where Neleh sold out her so-called alliance; since Paschal had received no votes, and was in no danger, the honourable thing would have been for Neleh to sacrifice herself in order for Paschal not to be put in jeopardy. At home, Elisabeth and Rodger are like, 'That's bullshit.'" -- Wing Chun] Kathy says she's worked hard and has been honest despite how hard it was to "jockey around" the pact between Neleh and Paschal. She also says she's provided well for the tribe, and that the adventure will change her life at home. Be that as it may, I can't figure out how her altered home life has any bearing on whether she should stay in the game. Now it's Vecepia's turn, who doesn't want to "take anything" from Neleh because she loves her spirit, but she's going with Kathy. Neleh says, "Paschal?" as if she has any doubt who he will align himself with. Paschal tries a different tactic, and wants the others to look at the ultimate goal: to stay until the end. He says they'd be stupid to keep Kathy around because she's capable of winning any immunity challenge, "much more so than Neleh." So after about thirty seconds, Kathy declares them deadlocked and insists that it's not going to work. Neleh, also, is ready to draw rocks. Because drawing rocks is FUN! She rambles on that it seems like the fairest thing to do; then Peachy cuts her off to snark that it's not the fairest thing for Paschal, who has suddenly become vulnerable.
