    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Team Back Bay: Jeff's father, who is battling cancer, gets pneumonia and is in intensive care. Jeff and Elizabeth weigh their decision to stay 11 more days, or go home, and decide it's more important to be with family.

        Team Riou Point: Dennis tells his daughters that he discovered a lump on one of his testicles, and with his history of cancer, is worried that he might have to leave early as well to get himself examined. But his doctor is reassuring when they talk on the phone, so they decide to stick it out.

        Team Hawkins Glacier: Greg and Bernice are concerned that they don't have enough food, water and firewood for themselves and their guests, so they try hunting and gathering to eke out their supplies. The first hunt they find nothing, but on the second Greg shoots two ptarmigan, a small arctic quail.

        Team Flower Lake: The three know that they are a burden on their hosts Greg and Bernice, and try to do everything in their power to contribute to the dwindling supplies. Tim and Greg go hunting, they all go after water and firewood, and Allan paws through the snow to find some blueberries.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Elizabeth: There's so many things I'm going to miss about Alaska. Just how simple it is, that anything you want, you have to make happen, you know. Everything is a reflection of you, and therefore if you succeed, it's because of your own work.

      • Jeff: (packing up to leave) It's funny, there are so many things you think about out here that you do for no other reason but pure necessity- you know, food, water, wood. And so much of what we do back in the world, is for reasons I'm not even sure of.
        Elizabeth: Yeah. When I was laying in bed last night I was thinking how complicated everything is back there. Like everything is made to be simpler. But this life, even though we have to do everything in order to get somewhere, seems so much simpler.

      • Greg: (as they hike through the glacier) We were excited about the glacier hike, at the same point I was really nervous about it because, I mean some of those places were just slick ice and you hit them, and you're down in a crevasse, and I don't think there's any way to get you out. I mean, some of them were deep, and, I mean, you just go in there and you're pretty much, you're in and, you know, become part of the ice sculpture.

      • Elizabeth: (opening the first can of salmon for their holiday celebration) This is probably the most authentic Thanksgiving we've ever had.
