The elephant snorts its way through a meal, as we see a prettily set table under a hut. Clay and Brian exclaim over its beauty, and then Brian tells us in an interview, that they walked in and, "Tada! A feast -- a feast fit for a king!" Brian and Clay spoon shrimp soup into bowls. A Thai woman approaches them with more food, causing Clay to exclaim, "Holy hell yes!" Clearly, the shrimps' asses are not so nice, as they elicit no commentary from Clay. In an interview, Clay tells us he's never seen so much food in his life, which might explain his lack of success as a restaurant owner. Clay and Brian shovel in noodles and vegetables while discussing how confused their stomachs are. Clay says his stomach is telling him, "You feed me leaves and bark and all of a sudden you put stuff in I like!" Hee. He tells us they had every kind of Thai food, and that it was the best meal he's had in thirty years. Again, not boding particularly well for his career in the restaurant industry. They then toast each other again and agree that it's "not a bad beer." Clay then makes a joke about how the "trip home will not be long," but I don't get it. ["Maybe he means that they want so little to return to camp that the ride there will go by quickly?" -- Wing Chun] As they continue to feast, Clay voice-overs that he and Brian laughed a lot and have grown very tight. He says that those few shared moments were worth six months together at home, and hasn't someone said that exact thing during the shared feast reward in every season of this show? In order, perhaps, to demonstrate their closeness, we're shown a clip in which Brian burps and Clay doesn't appear to notice. Brian tells us that he wouldn't have enjoyed himself with anyone else as much as he did with Clay. He's glad for the shared experience, and thinks Clay would have done the same thing for him.
