Charla and Mirna and the Moms get their clue and head for the buses.
Colin and Christie and Chip and Kim get to the next clue box, having had a fairly uneventful bus trip, it would seem. Exposition Hands will have you know this is a Detour, and the choices are Buzzing and Busy. In Buzzing, you choose one bicycle per team and ride to a honey farm, where you put on beekeeper outfits and harvest honey from hives. Phil says that while this will be creepy, it should go fast. In Busy, you find a furniture store, load two chairs onto a cart, and deliver them to an address in town. Each team will have to deliver to a different address, and Phil explains that all addresses are hard to find, because places aren't clearly marked. When they've delivered the chairs, they have to get a receipt and bring it back to the store to get their next clue.
Christie says she thinks they should do Buzzing. "You don't mind being all in the bees, though?" Colin says. He's thinking only of her, of course. She's a girl, you know, and we scare easy. Ultimately, both of the lead teams choose the furniture store. They seem to find the furniture store within about three minutes, and Colin asks some of the locals which of the addresses is closest. Pretty smart. Both teams hook up with some folks who will help them find the addresses they need. Amusingly, Chip and Kim first find themselves taken to a place that sells pillows for chairs. The guy legitimately seems to have thought they wanted to buy pillows first. "That's good thinkin'," Kim compliments him anyway. Hee. Chip interviews: "I said, 'Hey, we don't want to get all the accoutrements with the doggone thing, we just want to deliver the chairs where we want to deliver them.'" They are so cute, seriously. Anyone who can appropriately use the word "accoutrements" is okay in my book.
On the bus, the guy comes around for money. Brandon wants to pay half now and half when they get there. The guys are not going for that. Brandon tells them that he doesn't have any way of knowing if they're "trustworthy." Brandon says that he needs to get where they're going, and when they get there, he'll give them the money. A Twinkie calls the entire experience "very intimidating," and says she was thankful that they had Brandon there. I kind of don't like the "put the boy in charge" thing, but on the other hand, in that position, I'd be glad he was there, too. Brandon says, with what looks to me like genuine concern, "Mirna and Charla and the Bowling Moms, I have no idea how they'll do."
