Mama Weaver gets her stone to the target, so now it's Rachel's turn. She gets hers as well, and then Rolly gets his. So they're done, and they're in first place, and despair is setting in across the land. Their clue tells them to go 26 miles to the American Pavilion, one of those giant spheres that someone built for a World's Fair or an Expo or something back in 1967 when that sort of thing was still in fashion. There, they'll climb several flights of stairs to fetch a clue. Ted makes some calls on their behalf. Ugh.
The Linzes get to the right arena, and they don their helmets for a little curling. Nick tries to be funny while walking on the ice and winds up almost injuring himself. That's what you get for trying to look cool, smarty. Alex's first shot is a little weak, which gets him a lot of ribbing and cries of "Wuss!", just like you'd expect. He takes another shot, and this one is successful.
The Bransens find the arboretum and the log-rolling Detour. As they watch, a couple of guys run a log from one part of the track to the other. Wally and Beth start out on their first log for the team.
The Weavers, meanwhile, are still praising Ted while on their way to the American Pavilion. Ted says, jokingly, as if making an awards speech, that he'd like to thank God. "Ted, we thank God every day, too!" Mama says. "Are you a Christian?" Rachel pipes up. Ted sees which side his bread is buttered on and says that he is. Despite the cross hanging from Ted's mirror, his statement that he's a Christian certainly looks like pandering to me. And who can blame him, really? All you can do with silly people you hope will tip you is give them what they want.
Tommy makes his shot. Nick makes his. "I love this game!" Tommy says. "I'm moving to Canada."
Elsewhere, Wally and Beth complete the first log for their family.
The Weavers approach the American Pavilion.
Megan's shot barely makes it, with plenty of sweeping. They read the American Pavilion clue, and as they leave, they go on about how much they loved the curling. "I'm going to build a curling rink in Cincinnati, Ohio," Alex says, making further plans for the Alex Linz Amusement Center, with its giant chair and so forth.
Ted delivers the Weavers to the American Pavilion. They hop out and run. They have to hunt around for a while before they find the stairs, but they eventually do, and they run up to where the clue box is. The clue tells them to go six miles to an industrial park. Phil says they'll have to "search for la porte J, which is French for 'Door J.'" Oh, I get it. It's a foreign language. I certainly hope the teams can crack that tricky code. Once they find the door, they'll find another clue. The Weavers return to Ted and give him the address. Shockingly, Ted does not say, "La porte J? What is this porte?"
