Hippie Commune III
After thanking The Lord for the food they eat, the people in the commune disperse. The children start to play, and the other folks in the commune rehearse the play.
Billy wanders around the camp playing cowboys and indians with the kids, to the amusement of the kids who get one up on him by landing a ball of mud on his jacket. Eventually he wanders into a little gathering of commune members, where he tries to grab the attention of a girl, but one of the commune members blocks his path, the music stops dramatically, and then The Hitchhiker, who's with them, turns to Billy and says, "Who sent you?". A silence, and then Billy wanders off now feeling a bit lost.
Wyatt in the meantime is enjoying the meal in the sun with his back propped up against a large rock (pictured), next to one of the women from the commune.
Soon enough Billy appears and, somewhat shakily asks Wyatt if they can get out of here because he was freaked out by the Hitchhiker asking him "Who sent you?". (*) Wyatt obviously wouldn't want to leave, but, being a nice to his friend, reassures him that everything is cool. Wyatt shares shares his joint with him.
The hitchhiker then enters the scene at this point and tries to talk Wyatt into staying with them at the commune. Billy gets nervous about this and it shows, but the hitchhiker begs him to let Wyatt make up his own mind. Billy is quiet. Wyatt thinks about it, but then explains that he's just got to go.
Later on (at the end of the film) Wyatt claims that, "We blew it." I believe he is referring to this scene at the time, looking at the life he could have had, comparing it with the path he chose instead.
Wyatt's girlfriend asks if she and her friend can have a lift, and he agrees.
And then follows a romantic scene of music, beautiful photography, and our friends with the girls in a love-in by the pool. (not shown.)
