The twelve arrive at Tribal Council. Probst asks Ralph what camp is like now that there are twelve people in it instead of five. Ralph says it doesn't really feel like one united camp, since the two tribes have their areas to sleep in and don't really associate with each other much. Rob agrees, saying he's "never seen anything like" the division between two alliances. Even though he's probably the reason why there is such a divide. He's not going to let anyone on his alliance talk to anyone on the other alliance and start getting any ideas. David mentions that the former Zapato members are being forced to sleep on the tarp-less side of the shelter, and Ashley interrupts to point out that her tribe won that tarp, so why shouldn't they get to enjoy it? David can't help but say that they only won the tarp because he "didn't try very hard" in that particular challenge. Probst asks if David is confirming that his tribe threw that challenge. David admits that they did. Rob laughs. Why shouldn't he, now that Zapato merged down in the numbers and without a precious tarp?
And here comes Phillip. "That's the distinction between the two tribes," he begins. "Oh, please," David says. Probst looks at David like, "oh, you are in for it now. We will be here all night." Phillip scolds David for interrupting him before resuming his speech about how his tribe plays with honor and integrity and would never lose a challenge on purpose. That's because they lost plenty of them by accident. But Phillip isn't done yet. "There are some in the tribe who like deceit, which can be beautiful and glorious. But as you know, when it proceeds outward, it sometimes leaves a stench so great you know that it is probably carrying something parasitic. And therefore, you don't want to approach it." Zapato is speechless, because what can they really say to all of that? They'd have to know what the hell Phillip is talking about first. Onomatopoeia, on the other hand, is used to this, and openly laugh at Phillip. Probst asks what's so funny, and the two mean girls say "whatever Phillip just said!" And here's where Zapato could make a play for Phillip's vote, pointing out that his allies think he's ridiculous, but they still seem to be trying to figure out what is going on and remain silent. Ashley says she has no problem with the members of the other tribe personally, but everyone seems to be sticking with his original tribe.
