Danza works on the climb. Esquire, meanwhile, is not enjoying the hike back down through the jungle.
Esquire's efforts to rappel down into the boat go astray when Rob flings himself into the rocks. "Ow! Ow!" he says. Brennan, chuckling from below: "Come on, you girl!" More Brennan laughter as Rob dangles from the rope. "Wuss," he declares. Hee hee. Of course, officially, my reaction is, "AHEM, young man, please do not use 'girl' as a stand-in for 'wimp.'" But, you know, unofficially? Hee hee. It's all in the delivery, which you cannot appreciate unless you saw it. Once Rob actually makes it down, though, he does have to get his finger checked out, because he's managed to mash his knuckle against a rock, and it's a bit bloodied. He also fears it's broken, given "how it's swelling up." They give us a close-up of the victimized knuckle, but he kinda has those giant St. Bernard puppy paws anyway, so it's hard to tell whether it's really swollen. I'm sure it hurts, though. "That's not good," Brennan comments, having fulfilled his funny-dialogue quota for today and thus vanishing into Rain Man obscurity once again.
Margarita's climb hits a snag when Frank struggles with where Butt-Kicking Encouragement Frank ends and Loud Pushy Frank begins. He's getting better at this balance, but he's not quite there yet. Among other things, Margarita is pushing herself very hard physically, as you can tell from her seriously quivery legs, and she needs to finish this climb so she can get down. "Take a few deep breaths," he tells her. "It's just like climbing trees when you were a kid." Margarita, good-naturedly: "I never climbed trees when I was a kid!" Frank, having an Episode One moment: "Come on, don't be a sissy. Let's go." She gets going again, but he keeps it up, until her mood shifts, she loses her patience a bit, and she says, "Frank, stop yelling at me! I can't." It's not clear exactly what she's saying she "can't" do, because she looks like she's almost done, but it's clear that she's ready for him to give it a rest. This is in spite of the fact that I don't think she minds a certain amount of the blustery "come on, you know you can do it, so stop freaking out and do it" attitude. In fact, she probably counts on at least some of that.
