Back at Camp Mogo Mogo, the men discuss the fact that the girls are probably off making an alliance as they speak. In the course of this, Hatch calls Colby "honey." Then, in an interview in which he overenunciates everything in some kind of grand new quasi-accent, he explains that people are "paranoid," which is perhaps right where he wants them. As the Bassoon of Isn't He Clever honks in the background, Hatch says that he "ought to be [paranoid] as well," and then he dramatically makes a contemptuous little "pffft" noise. Hatch is rapidly going to learn -- or at least the rest of us are -- that a little bit of that goes a long way. He's in more danger than anyone else in this game so far of overplaying his gimmick to the point where he becomes a silly caricature, and the more he does that, the less likely I think he is to win. Guy's had a few too many people call him brilliant, I think. Meanwhile, Shii Ann mutters to Kathy that she thinks Colby and Lex have a plan. Kathy and Shii Ann get into this strategy talk a little bit, but as Kathy then interviews, they never think to look around and see if anybody's listening. Hatch, instead of taking advantage of what he now knows, would rather have the glory moment, so he comes out of the bushes and nyaah-nyaahs to Kathy that he just overheard their entire conversation. Kathy, chagrined, interviews that with all this revealed, she and Hatch returned to camp and got everything out of the way.
Indeed, back at Mogo Mogo where the shelter is being built, an interesting conversation follows. Hatch tells the guys how the girls were scheming because they thought the boys were scheming, and Lex suggests that they all just put aside the scheming and work on camp stuff, because there will be plenty of time for treachery later. Lex's nipple ring says that they should just worry about winning the challenges and doing their work, and worry about voting when voting comes up. Everyone looks at each other for a minute. Time passes. And then Colby says, "I don't trust any of you sons-a-guns," and everyone laughs. Heh, even me. Yeah, when it hits just the right note, the wild paranoia really is a little bit funny. ["Did I mention I still love Colby? I do!" -- Wing Chun] Colby goes on to say men, women, whatever -- he thinks they're all snakes. Heh. Hatch interviews that he's "figuring out how to play" this "different game." Apparently, he's going with "annoy the crap out of everyone" as an opening gambit. He says that he's a "big-ass target" (oh, write your own joke), so he's just trying to "stir the pot a little." Hey! Do not do the dance, Hatch.
