Uchenna and Joyce continue building their raft, and appear to be making up time. Kelly, for her part, is doing nothing, and she and Ron are starting to fight now. "The last time I built one of these was -- oh, never -- so relax," he says. Heh. Oh, Ron. Come over here and sit next to me, baby. Have some popcorn. Amber comments that Rob has been in construction for quite a while, and that they've built rafts on Survivor, so they're thinking it should go pretty well for them. The Mark Burnett Accounting Firm And Alligator Wrestling Company makes note of the fact that another of the contractually required mentions of Survivor has been fulfilled. Meanwhile, Kelly is noting that Uchenna and Joyce are well ahead of her and Ron. Ron suggests that Kelly could help more and bitch less, but Kelly isn't sure how she can do that. I think it's become one of those things where Kelly is so passive and unwilling to jump in that Ron isn't sure it would be any faster to sit there and explain everything to her, as opposed to juts doing it himself. Uchenna and Joyce are still cruising.
In a scene that tells you as much about unseen conversations as it does about anything you're actually watching, Rob says to Amber, "Right there, hold it right there." And then he sort of pauses and carefully says, "I don't mean to be like that, but I mean, we've got to finish this thing." That is a guy who's been asked not to be snappish when he's impatient, clearly. Amber, as usual, is completely wearing the actual argument pants in the relationship and wryly says, "I'll do whatever I can to make you happy." "That's my girl," Rob says. "And then," she says, "after the race, you can make me happy." And she looks up at him with this sort of coy, funny expression, and I'm telling you -- they may or may not last, but they really do like each other.
