harris as cook.

Harris says he's a very good cook and offers to scramble eggs for breakfast. He actually says he's famous for his eggs. The men were hungry, and they gave him eggs (some smashed), the stove and the frying pan...... he had a bit of trouble breaking them, and in getting them into the pan. The process of making the eggs left him with multiple burns and numerous dropped utensils.
In the end, everything was a complete mess. A tablesppon of burnt eggs was all that remained of the original six, and Harris, of course, blamed everything but himself for the fiasco.
