    • Courtney: I am so done with this game. I lost the competition, my stupid lawyer lost my lawsuit. Now I just want to go home, study for my LSATs and run my student president campaign.
      Duncan: Wow, hello, downer. C'mon, it's almost over. I thought you'd be happy.
      Courtney: (angry) I am happy!

    • (Duncan on the ground with a wounded ankle)
      Noah: So, your girlfriend turned on you, huh? Hate to see that happen. I bet you feel like a loser about now, huh? Less of a man?
      Duncan: Enough of a man to rip your head off, GEEK!
      (Duncan grabs onto Noah's pants, and then fades to where Noah shrieks and runs away)

    • Izzy: (eats another marshmallow) Ninety-five! (burp) Thirty-seven's not bad, Eva. With a little'll be burping like: (does an enormous burp that sounds like a roar, which creates a tidal wave that pushes Lindsay and Beth back against the other side of the pool)
      Owen: (marshmallows fall out of his mouth) I think I'm in love with you! (Izzy smiles but then gets nauseous and barfs all over Chef's steak)
      Izzy: Wow, that was gross. Hehehe! Ok, who wants hot dogs?

    • (In the confessional)
      Eva: I can't believe I let a guy talk me into giving away $1,000,000! What will my peers back home say?! I'll never be able to show my face in my home town gym again! I'll become an outcast! A leper! I'll be the laughing stock of strong women everywhere! I've got to get that case back! One way or another, Justin is going to pay!

    • Harold : Why don't you team up with me and we'll find the case together?
      Heather: Really? You'd team up with me even after everything I did to you?
      Harold: Sure, for a 60/40 split. It's either that or a 5 kilometer walk back to camp. Heather: Good extortion skills, Harold. I'm actually impressed. Fine, it's a deal!

    • DJ: Head for the woods, dude! Just make sure you put some serious distance between us!
      Tyler: Yeah, we'll wait here.
      (Owen begins walking towards the woods, dragging Tyler, DJ and Cody with him since they're tied together)
      DJ: You got to untie yourself first!
      (Owen fiddles with the rope but it doesn't come undone)
      Owen: I can't!
      DJ: (looks at Cody) Where'd you learn how to tie these knots? The army?
      Cody: Actually, it was a special after school program...
      DJ: (looks at Owen) And you! Why didn't you go before we tied ourselves together?
      Owen: Why?! I didn't need to go then! Guys, this is serious!!!
      DJ: (Looks down with resignation) I guess you're just gonna hafta... go...
      (They all back up until Owen's behind a bush, he squats down so all that is seen is his head and the sound of him sliding down his pants)

      Chris: BAIL, PHIL! BAIL!

    • (in Confessional)
      Justin: Do I think that I ride on my good looks, that I use them to my advantage? Do I think being really, really ridiculously good looking has given me the upper hand in life?

      (They walk away. Next, Bridgette and Geoff arrive, make out under the case and walk away)
      Chris: (From helicopter) OK, this is ridiculous!

    • (in Confessional)
      Justin: (About Katie and Sadie) I am going to lose it. Seriously, If I have to hang around these two for much longer, I'll throw myself off a cliff.

    • Bridgette: I'm so sorry I knocked you off the cliff.
      Geoff: No worries. It was a pretty soft rock.

    • Owen: (seeing a bear walk up to him) Oh, I bet it's Izzy in there. (opens bear's mouth) Izzy, can you hear me? (bear roars) It's not Izzy!

    • Heather: (to Harold) You know what? So far today, I've been thrown off a cliff by you, attacked by beavers, left to die and I lost one million dolars which I'm hoping to get back so I really don't have time for your Haroldness right now, ok?

    • Duncan: (referring to alligator he just wrestled for suitcase) Ha! I've had tougher girlfriends than him and uglier.

    • Duncan: What are alligators doing in Muskoka?
      (cut to Chris watching on a monitor with Chef)
      Chris: (to Chef) Hmmm, alligators your idea? (Chef nods and Chris laughs) Good one!

    • (in confessional)
      Noah: Ok, is it me or is Izzy just one crazy bird?

    • (in confessional)
      Heather: (while using mirrors to see happy face drawn on the back of her head) I am so glad this whole thing is over. I haven't wanted to get away from a group of people this badly since my Calculus teacher made me join the Mathletes for extra credit.

    • (in confessional)
      Duncan: (referring to Harold) What a doofus! That million is about to be in my pocket! Or in my duffle bag. I'm not really sure how much space a million dollars takes up.

    • Courtney: Ohhh, let's go get that million dollars! Yesss!! (kisses Duncan)
      Duncan: Looks like someone got their mojo back!
      Courtney: Shut up and follow me. We`ve got a suitcase to find!
      Duncan: Yes, sir! Yes, sir!

    • (in confessional)
      Courtney: (referring to a million dollar prize just announced) Ok, this just got interesting again.

    • (in confessional)
      LeShawna: (referring to drawing a happy face on the back of Heather's bald head) Ok, you know you'd done the same thing if you were me. After all that girl did to the rest of us over the last eight weeks, she's lucky I didn't tattoo it on her head!

    • (in confessional)
      Owen: (referring to Izzy) How can you not love a woman who can barf like a guy and come back for more?
