Ralph wants to do the responsible thing and return to the platform where Piggy and the littluns are waiting. Jack accuses Ralph of being weak like Piggy for wanting to go down to the platform. Ralph tries to explain why going to the top of the mountain is not productive but Jack continues to undermine Ralph as being weak by linking him to Piggy. It is only Simon, who craves the solace of the dark jungle, offers to go back to the platform.
