Rob tells Phillip that he understands Phillip's anger with the girls, but tribe unity is the most important thing right now. Rob calls this playing "Arafat." Ah, yes, Yasser Arafat, that great peacemaker. Also a terrorist who was indirectly and possibly even directly responsible for countless murders. Rob says Phillip is right that the girls don't do any work around camp, but Rob sees that as a good thing. The less they do around camp, the more attractive they are to sit next to at the end because no one could possibly vote for them.
Things are much more peaceful over at Zapato, where Stephanie decides to put her kiss-ass plan into action. She finds Steve sunning himself, like, in the middle of the woods in the shade, which I don't understand, and asks if she can talk to him. She starts by saying she's not "very good at" apologizing, but she wanted to tell Steve that she's sorry for voting for him the other night and hurting his feelings. Steve beams at her and interviews that Stephanie was either speaking from her heart or from her brain, which finally realized that she needs allies if she wants to do well in this game. He's not sure which one it is, even though it's pretty freaking obvious. He tells her he appreciates her saying that and wants them to all be in this together. Until, you know, the next time they lose a challenge have to vote someone out.
Stephanie agrees, saying "it's good to have a positive attitude." Well, if she isn't completely blowing smoke up Steve's ass, then if nothing else at least she learned a valuable life lesson that might help her after her tribe votes her hateful ass out of there at the first available opportunity. Steve says he tries to "believe in people" until he gets "stomped on," which is definitely a good character trait to have in this game. Suckers usually make it really far in Survivor. Stephanie then gets a little bit clever and says she actually wanted to write down Sarita's name, but thought it would have been too risky to do so. Steve says he actually agrees with that, and that Stephanie is stronger all around than Sarita. Stephanie is encouraged by this, and says she's hoping to impress her tribe by kicking ass in the next immunity challenge and showing them that they're better off having her around than Sarita. She'd better hope the challenge doesn't favor people with toothaches or a love of big hats, then.
