I transcribed a few last night while I was bored...
Brandon: We decided that we were going to wake up early this morning and go fishing, so we got up at the butt-crack of dawn and were like ďAll right, weíre going to get us a big fish.Ē
<Brandon catches a fish>
Male (?): Nice!
Margaret: Good job!
Blake: Today it felt so good to get out in the boat and I wanted to get out there and fish so bad. Iím feeling better a little bit right now, Iím not panting as much. Hopefully at some point Iíll just beat this [his sickness] and serve greater value to the group.
Blake: I got one, I got one!
Female (?): Yes, YES!
Brandon: I outsmarted the fish, imagine that! Takes a lot, butÖ I think we need a scale to measure this bad boy, I think itís some kind of record. Itís huge.
[Chatter over cooking fish]
Male (?): It was the best fish I ever had because I was so hungry.
Brandon: Everybody just got a little pinch, like with these three fingers, and that was it. But, it will make a terd, I guess. (That is totally what I think he saidÖÖ)
Female: Oh God, this is so good!
Not That Thereís Anything Wrong
Jamie: We got the most diverse group here. Weíve got a police officer, weíve for a magicianís assistance, weíve got a makeup artist, and weíve got a makeup artist, and weíve got a gay guy. We all come together and itís brilliant.
[Laughter and chatter]
Brian: Thatís like the deal-breaker.
Female (?): That is a deal-breaker.
Rafe: Iíve talked before. Letís just take a second, step back, then weíll go over some basics.
Female (?): I love you, Rafe!
Female (?): When I guy kissesÖ
Rafe: Itís much better.
Rafe: Thatíll be the reward, Amy, we could get some hot..
Brian: And we could get like a cabana boyís reward.
Jamie: When I came here, I met Rafe and I met Brian. And I thought Brian was gay, because of his voice.
Rafe: Iím glad weíre blue.
Brian: I like it too.
Rafe: Whatís youíre favorite color?
Brian: Itís happened before, people have thought Iíve been gay before because Iím well-manored, Iím clean, Iím classy. But it doesnít phase me, I know Iím straight, and any girl Iím with knows Iím straight.
[Brian smashing corn with the cylinder rock thing]
Lydia: Itís not easy, Iíll tell ya.
Male (?): I donít think Brianís gay though, do you?
Morgan: No, I donít.
Morgan: If Brian did say, ďMorgan, Iím gay, Iíve been lying to you,Ē I wouldnít be surprised. But, you know, I respect him.
Morgan: If we ever have a twirling challenge, Iím all set.
Female (?): Did you twirl when you were a little girl?
Morgan: Yeah I did.
Amy: I can do, like thisÖ
Morgan: Oh, over?
Male (?): Like Donatella (or however thatís spelled)
Female: Woo! You get it girl!
Rafe: Yaxha is totally like the female tribeÖ Kind of the woman power, we all support each other, be collective, and then go out and kick ass at challenges.
Brian: Camp life is doing pretty well, we caught a fish! It was like this big, but it was a morale booster more than anything else. A couple people didnít want to eat it, which I understand, it was a tiny fish, it couldnít go all around anyways. But, just try it.. get some protein in you, itís not much anyways. But I took a bite. It was nice to get something different in my mouth other than all this corn, and weíre kind of out of fruit. It was a nice change of pace anyways.
Brian: A bunch of us were sleeping in the shelter and then Gary comes up scream, ďWE GOT A FISH! ITíS THE BIGGEST MONSTER! WE GOT A SHARK!Ē So we all come scrambling out of the shelter, all excited, falling over ourselves to see this fish. And of course, itís this big.. and it was all a joke I thought it was funny, I was laughing. Jamie was kind of annoyed, he spent more energy getting out of the shelter than he would have eating the fish. So, it was funny. Weíre just so delirious out here that anything to make us laugh out here is fine by me. So Gary brought it up, he threw it in the skillet and we are it. We split it six ways, and you can imagine a fish, six ways how big that goes.. not far.
Brian: Lydia didnít want to try the fish, I think because sheís a fishmonger and sheís kind of sick of fish and even though weíve been hungry for five days, sheís had enough fish in her lifetime that she doesnít need to eat a fish this big right now when itís being split that much. Then Morgan, Brianna, and Jamie, who are all feeling a little bit down and wasting energy, none of them wanted the fish, even though they are the three who probably need it more than anyone else.
Brian: Lydia and I are getting pretty close. I get along really well with Lydia. I think that she feels really left out, out here by a lot of the young kids. I think a lot of the teammates looked at her and thought she was going to hold us back. And the fact of the matter is that Lydia has a better track record in the challenges than Rafe, Brianna, and Amy too. So Lydiaís not even one of the bottom three in our tribe, as far as Iím concerned, I think sheís done amazing work. She hauls ass around camp. She pulls twice her body weight in palm fans and wood every day. Sheís doing a great job, Iím proud of her and sheís proud of herself. And sheís here to push herself.
Brian: Lydia and I have spent a lot of time together down at the lake on the dock. She was feeling pretty down the other day, feeling left out and no one wanted to listen to her, like she couldnít be herself out here. And so I knew that that was my opportunity to get Lydia on my side and make sure she wouldnít vote for me because Iím one person here who does listen to Lydia and does like her for who she is and she can be herself around me. So we talked about that, watching out for each other and making sure that if we hear anything about people voting for someone. If I hear someone voting for Lydia, or she hears someone voting for me, itís getttin right back to each other.
