Then he does answer her question, saying that the men actually do work around camp, along with Andrea. Of course, he pronounces her name wrong because he has a throat issue he's getting treatment for, and Ashley corrects him. Undaunted, he says that Andrea cooks and stuff, while Ashley and Natalie lie around like they're in a beauty pageant. "I am tired of being the red stepchild to you two!" he cries, causing Ashley to spit out her mug of coffee or rice and burst out laughing. Natalie contributes with this: "uh, are you still talking?" Does she want to wake up with a spear in her chest? Ashley continues to poke at Phillip and then says she's going to walk away now. Not so fast! "I will follow you!" Phillip says, doing just that. The look of horror on Natalie's face is kind of priceless. Ashley, who is somehow still alive after all that, interviews that Phillip is crazy. Duh, Ashley. She says she's annoyed by Phillip's insanity and is "done" with him. Rob, of course, has to have an opinion about all of this, and interviews that if they keep fighting like this, then their tribe will be seriously divided. So he will have to pull Phillip aside and play peacemaker.
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.
