Random shots of the roommates doing travel-type stuff. The on-screen text informs us that they are now in "Chitwan National Park, Nepal." They see some elephants in the river, and Rebecca asks how they wash themselves. Hasn't she ever been to the zoo? Then she asks how you help them wash themselves, and wonders if you use soap. Yeah, because elephants in the wild frequently stop in at their local grocery store and buy a bar of Ivory. Cut to Nathan moaning and groaning in bed. He voice-overs that you don't want to get sick in Nepal, because there's nowhere to go to feel better. It does suck to be sick when you're traveling. Rusty checks in on him, then goes back and tells the group that Nathan has picked up a "typical infection" that causes fever, diarrhea and throwing up, "all at the same time." Dude! That would suck. Rusty gave him some strong antibiotics. Won't Nathan just throw them up? Unless he injected them. I'm not going to think about this anymore.
The roommates are going to wash the elephants. In an interview, Irene says that the elephants know how to wash, and don't need their help, but she didn't think about that before going to wash them. That's true. You'd think they'd just get in the way. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy plays as wacky elephant hijinks ensue. Basically, the roommates all get on the elephants' backs, and then when the elephants spray themselves with their trunks, the roommates get soaked. Ultimately, the roommates all fall off into the river. Irene jokes to Rusty that she thought he would be giving her "a big toothbrush, a big nail file." Hee!
The roommates are now riding the elephants on land. A storm rolls up and David comments on the sky. It starts raining, and the guides pull out tarps. Then it starts hailing, and David gets waaaay too excited about it. In an interview, Rebecca says that she boycotted the circus when she was younger because of the treatment of elephants, and now she understands what she was thinking at the time. What is she, Kim Basinger? And isn't what she's doing right now sort of exploitative, in that they are forcing the elephants to give them rides, and thus treating them as transportation vehicles? She continues that riding elephants is "the most exciting thing [she's] done in a long time." Dude, she needs to get out more. I mean, it would be cool, but not THAT exciting. The sun comes out after the storm, and it is really beautiful. For once, none of the roommates feel the need to comment on it and I can enjoy it without their annoying voices interrupting me, or explaining it to me.
