When she gets back from barfing, Jonathan suggests she take off her wet clothes so they can wrap her up and warm her up.
If it makes you feel better I’ll take my clothes off too!
Dana declines to take her clothes off, but she does let them wrap her up in the blanket and lays down in Penner’s lap.
I just wanna take your temp; open wide
Dawson notices she’s burning up and Penner says it’s obvious Dana needs medical attention. Sure enough, here comes Jeff with the medical staff in tow. The doctor seems a bit surprised to hear how much pain Dana is in, but says it’s not bad enough for her to be pulled from the game. At least not for another twelve hours. In fact, his suggestion is that they watch her for the next twelve hours to see if she dies how she does. They could then reassess her and make a decision about whether or not she can stay in the game.
Jeff tells Dana that the ONLY time medical pulls someone from the game is when their life is in imminent danger. So I guess she’s staying. But Dana is crying and saying she can’t be out here in this much pain anymore. Jeff asks her to confirm that she’s a quitting quitter that wants to quit.
So you’re quitting?
Actually, he’s much nicer than he usually is about the whole quitting thing, so either he only hates quitters that are guy, or he can tell that Dana is really super sick even though it’s not medically enough to take her from the game. It’s weird because I expected him to be a jackass about her quitting, but he was actually quite nurturing. Well, except for the part where he brings in her whole tribe so she has to tell them she’s quitting.
Just to be clear, she’s quitting.
They all know how sick she’s been so no one is mad at her. Katie just thinks it sucks because her plan for female domination just went out the window. Even with Denise they’re now merely tied with the guys’ numbers again.
Sucks to be me
It’s now time for the immunity challenge. As the tribes arrive on their mats, Tandang is shocked to see that Dana is no longer in the game.
For this challenge the tribes will race through a series of obstacles. Then they will untie knots to lower a drawbridge. From there one tribe member will chop a rope to release bamboo puzzle pieces. The whole tribe will then race to find all of the puzzle pieces with letters on them and then use them to solve a word phrase. As always the winners will be safe and the losers will take a trip to tribal. Because Dana is gone, Tandang will have to sit out one person. Ave immediately indicates that she will be sitting out.
Are you fucking kidding me?????
