The stay in Nepal isn't all fun and games. The cast must produce six R.E.I. commercial spots for the radio. This means sampling the natural sounds of Nepal along with organizing a production plan. Stephen takes control of this process. Riding on mountain bikes, the cast peddles over beautiful vistas and through tiny villages.
At dinner, in front of their courteous guests, Stephen initiates a verbal assault on Janet, criticizing her for wearing lots of makeup. Upon returning to her room, Janet hears Stephen chastise her through the wall of the adjacent room. She storms into his room and tells him to shut up.
The group goes hiking, and Stephen is irritated by their apparent incompetence when it comes to the radio equipment. Rebecca feels changed by their experiences, and is in love with the beauty of the culture and the women. The next day, the cast finds themselves in a raft cruising down a breathtaking Green River. At camp that evening, Stephen discovers his money is missing and angrily declares that someone has stolen it. The following day, Stephen's money is found sitting right on the seat of their van. "He felt like a complete idiot," Janet recalls.
Nate gets sick and stays in bed while the rest of the gang washes elephants. Rebecca gains confidence and finds a new freedom in Nepal. A few prayers are said in the village around lines of prayer flags. When it's time to leave, Rebecca has changed: "I'm taking away from Nepal an experience I'll never forget…I'm going to be happier for the rest of my life." Back home, Stephen hangs up prayer flags. Seems someone else is trying to change. He apologizes to Janet, and the two make up.
