After the break, Silvio sees the writing on the wall and wants to try to look good to the viewing audience before he gets kicked off the show, so he cleans up the RV. Amy, her hair looking a hot mess, says that Silvio has been very helpful since his unhelpfulness lost the challenge for the entire family. With that, the RVs take off. Reno in his fake RV tells us that everyone is headed for Oklahoma and some prairie where they'll get to see ("get this" Reno says as if it's going to be something really cool) buffalo. It isn't a Dodo bird, Reno. Buffalos aren't special. Then the show inserts filler footage of Route 66 sites made to look like they've been shot on 8mm film. The RVs arrive and the families check out the buffalo. Some families admire the majestic animal. The Pollards make mother-in-law jokes and step in buffalo crap, so there you go. Like most things on this show, it's a cool thing to see with your family, but on TV? Not so much.
After that, it's time for lunch. And by lunch, I mean a product placement. Yes, they'll all be dining at a klassy TGI Friday's restaurant. Everyone pretends to be happy about this except for Ashley, who wins my heart with a temper tantrum when her mother wakes her up too quickly. The families crowd into the restaurant and eat its reasonably-priced wares. Dee notes that families are starting to divide into groups, with the Pollards, DiSalvatores, and Ricos on one side and the Cootes, Montgomerys, and Favereys on the other. It might have something to do with the fact that Amie still can't pronounce the Favereys' last name correctly. After lunch, Ricky Rico bonds with Aaron Pollard and says he always wanted an older brother. Aw.
