”You will not get my vote. My vote will go to Richard. And I hope that is the one vote that makes you lose the money. If it’s not, so be it. I’ll shake your hand, and I’ll go on from here. But if I were to ever pass you along in life again and you were laying there, dyin’ of thirst, I would not give you a drink of water. I would let the vultures take you and do whatever they want with you, with no ill regrets. I plead to the jury tonight to think a little bit about the island that we have been on. This island is pretty much full of only two things — snakes and rats. And in the end of Mother Nature, we have Richard the snake, who knowingly went after prey, and Kelly, who turned into the rat that ran around like the rats do on this island, trying to run from the snake … I feel we owe it to the island’s spirits that we have learned to come to know, to let it be in the end the way Mother Nature intended it to be … for the snake to eat the rat.”
