Back at the hotel, Freddy gets a busy signal from the travel agent and has to dial again. Kris and Jon get to the travel agent, but when they get there, they have trouble communicating. Both teams continue to struggle, and ultimately, Kris and Jon find the language barrier with the travel agent too much to overcome, and they return to the hotel, where Freddy and Kendra are -- wouldn't you know it -- already getting tickets by hitting the business center. Luck of the impromptu diplomats! They get a guy to help them look at the computer, and he tells them that there's a 9:00 AM flight out of Xi'an, connecting through Osaka. They'll get into Honolulu at 9:40 in the morning. He also tells them that it will take about an hour to get to the airport, so Freddy notes that they need to get moving. They take off for the airport.
Kris and Jon come back to the business center, but it's too late for them to hit the 9:00 out, and that will put them on a 10:30 flight connecting through Tokyo, getting them into Honolulu at 9:45 AM. So that's a relief, at least. They book it.
Nuance shows up at the airport and runs inside. They make the 9:00 AM flight, but when they high-five over their victory, she's like, "Ow." Because Princess Kendra is too delicate for high-fives. Oh, man. That makes me appreciate Rebecca. She's a little goofy, but at least you don't break the bones in her hand by handing her a fucking beer. And that's not even counting what you would do to her if the beer had a twist-off cap. ["Girl, please. Like Kendra drinks beer." -- Sars] Nuance finds itself the only team on the first flight out of Xi'an, so that probably feels good. Kris and Jon then get to the airport, and they get on their flight to Tokyo.
