The men spread out their items on the table. Al tells Bribs which phrases to look up in their dictionary. Anderson voice-overs that Heather and Dorothy now get to observe the men selling. Bill tries speaking to the crowd in English, and Bribs tries Spanish. Heather tells the camera that she thinks the men will have a hard time, because she and Dorothy didn't know what would happen and picked out very strange items. Heather tells Dorothy that she thinks they would have been better at selling than buying. Bribs tells Bill that if one of the girls were down there trying to sell, they would be doing a lot better. Bill totally agrees. I think they would have more luck if Bribs stripped down a little. I'm just saying.
One hour and forty-five minutes remain until the market closes. In an interview, Al says that he realized they weren't selling anything, but that he did sell the wire brush to a guy. When ninety minutes remains, Bribs counts the money. They've only made 7,000 lire, so they have 193,000 lire to go.
Anderson voice-overs that while the men struggle to win money for the pot, the women discuss "a much more lucrative prize." Heather says that she really wants two girls to make it to the finals, and even if they lost, she would be happy. In an interview, Heather said that they were discussing sisterhood and the girls staying, and eventually they really looked at each other and decided to do something about it. Heather asks Dorothy if she's The Mole. Dorothy says that she's not, but she wants Heather to convince Dorothy that Heather isn't, either.
With less than an hour remaining, Bribs tries to yell in Italian to the potential buyers, but degenerates into saying, "Bleh bleh bleh bleh." What a great sales technique. Up top, Heather and Dorothy are still trying to figure out whether it makes sense to form a coalition. Heather points out that even if she were The Mole, it wouldn't hurt Dorothy to work with her. Dorothy asks how she's supposed to know that Heather won't misdirect her, or misdirect the men to knock Dorothy out. Dorothy says that Heather could be a vindictive Mole, targeting specific victims. Well, that's kind of true. I mean, The Mole's job isn't really to get specific people executed. It's to try to sabotage the games, right? And not let people know that he or she is The Mole. Heather says that if she had her Bible with her, she would swear on it, and then offers to swear on her engagement ring that she's not The Mole. In an interview, Dorothy says the fact that Heather approached her was enough to convince her. That makes sense too -- I would think that the producers wouldn't want The Mole to court coalitions actively. Heather says that it wouldn't make sense for the producers to pick her as The Mole, but we don't get to hear the reasons why. Because she's too much like last year's Mole? Because she's a bad liar? I don't know.
