    yep, Rob quickly jumped in then but isn't that what the game is all about: Outwit, Outplay, and Outlast?
    I'd be lousy at that game. You can't have moral compunctions and do well in Survivor. You have to be willing to lie, cheat, take advantage of others, etc. or you're out. So to me, in real life, Rob was a jerk but in Survivor mode, Rob was excellent.

    I'll grant it was (probably) a brilliant Survivor move, but I wonder if it was overboard. Depends how the other contestants felt about it. Sure seemed like a blow below the belt.

    I agree with dragonlady. In Survivor, there is no overboard. I think taking advantage of the moment was smart--I wish I could think that fast!
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    Which brings up an interesting question... I mean technically, "Does the lab rat actually work for the lab?"

    I'm pretty sure that Phillip was never the "Secret Agent Man" he claims to be. One of the very first steps is taking tests that reveals a lot of psychological stuff (that's hard to fake). He would have never made it past the first one.

    I'm thinking maybe he was a security guard somewhere, with dreams of being a Fed agent and the dreams have taken over.

    Agent Wack-A-Doodle-Doo is getting kind of old now. Since it would take at least two more episodes to do away with him totally (if he's voted off next episode and then appears at least once at the "duel"), I hope they get on that quickly.

    Unlikely though, since I'm thinking the other tribe is long overdue a Tribal.

    I think you missed my point (joke)... I was saying that his job with the FBI was as a lab rat. Having experiments done to him. Hence making him wakadoodle.
