Chip and Kim wander among the paintings until she finally locates the right one. They point it out to the curator and they receive their clue. They're quite excited to read it and see that it tells them to go to the top of the Tower of Cairo. Phil explains that this will require them to travel about 2000 miles to Cairo. When they get there, they'll have to find the 600-foot observation tower. Chip is beaming as he walks out of the museum repeating, "Cairo, Egypt!" They get in a cab and ask for the airport.
Linda and Karen pay their taxi driver at the train station and head inside. They discover that they've just missed a train, and will have to take the next one. They hypothesize that the Twinkies will catch up with them. "Dang it," they note. They're going to have to work up a better fit of anger than "dang it," or they're going nowhere. Indeed, the Twinkies approach and catch up at the train station. Linda notes to Karen that this will put them in another "footrace with the twins." Less footrace! More brainrace! Sigh.
At the Hermitage, music of determination follows Colin and Christie as they stomp purposefully around the exhibits. Colin finds himself a Rembrandt and points to it, despite the fact that it is a painting of a guy writing in a book, and looks nothing like the return of a prodigal son, or especially the return of Jesus, unless Jesus is auditing a class in accounting. Colin is informed that this is not the right painting, but realizes that he's probably on the right track, since he's probably reached Rembrandt Country. Before long, he finds and points to the right painting. The curator hands him the clue. As they leave, Colin is already talking about finding a travel agent.
Marshall and Lance wander around, and one of them (I am not good at telling their voices apart at all, unfortunately) says that they should just point at all the pictures at random. Yeah. With only three million works in the museum, that'll go by in the flash of a passing glacier. They do get themselves into the vicinity of the Rembrandts, and start pointing. Point! Point! Point! Finally, they find the right one and take the clue. They go outside and get into a cab, saying the crucial words, "International airport?"
Inside, Charla and Mirna are looking for the Rembrandt. Brandon and Nicole arrive behind them. Charla and Mirna find the painting. "The wonderful pyramids that I've always wanted to see," Charla says happily, and I like her, right up until Mirna butts in with "I can't wait." Everything she says annoys me now, even if it's not inherently annoying. It's like she's contaminated with my irritation at all her past wrongs.
