While still attempting to drive to the skate park, Caroline misses a right turn and has a minor breakdown from exhaustion and frustration. This time it's Jennifer who bucks her up. At this point, they're hardly even racing at all, just trying to finish.
Or are they? Beth sets out yet another round of soup for the wrong first course and gets "This is not what these people ordered," not once but three times as she swaps bowls around again. Beth is also on the verge of a meltdown, as she says, "I hope it's not our destiny to go down like the Titanic." Way to trivialize it there.
When she comes out of the dining tent with a full tray again, she calls up to Mona that it's all wrong again. She adds that Anthony said something about a list, so Mona agrees to go back and see if she can find anything else. Amazingly enough, that giant signboard that she's been walking past every time she goes in and out of the tent turns out to hold the key! She hollers down, "Beth! Bethie, I figured it out! I got it!" And to herself, "God, we're idiots!" Yeah, okay. She rushes back into the tent to load up plates of oysters and rushes back out, yelling at Beth to come back up. "I hear you! I'm coming!" Beth bellows from inside the dining tent where she's collecting bowls of soup that are just going to have to come back down in a minute.
Caroline and Jennifer finally make it to the converted warehouse that is T13 Skate Park. They find their way inside, where people are doing cycling and skating tricks at a dizzying rate, and meet an artist who leads them to a big metal utility cabinet. One of its two doors is standing open so they can't see what's on that one and the other has an outline painted on it in white. He shows them the photo of what he wants their side to look like when they're done. It's multicolored and pretty abstract. Caroline, who is still in a bit of a mood, pouts a little bit before putting on her filter mask, but Jennifer reminds her, "I'm having a hard day too." They get to work with the spray cans, starting with the black outline and working their way in, which seems like a rookie mistake to me. No, I've never perpetrated graffiti myself, but I do live across the street from a high school.
Mona hands Beth the tray of oysters and says the soup is all ready and waiting for her as soon as she gets back. "Great, cost us the race right there," Beth groans on her way back down for the umpteenth time. While waiting topside, Mona admits that they might well be in last, since they don't know where the country singers are, but she's not going to cry about it. Big of her, since this is mostly her fault. Returning to the dining tent, Beth complains to the passengers, "I've gone up these stairs ten times. She wasn't reading the menu!" She sets out the plates of oysters, and her poor headwaiter finally gets to say for the very first time, "Bon appetit." Beth gets a round of applause for having finally completed her first course, which is a dead giveaway that these aren't real first class passengers. Mona says, "I have no idea where the girls are. Either they're doing graffiti or they're lost, I have no idea." Apparently she's not even entertaining the possibility that they've already checked in. They are, however, making progress with their first-ever spray painting experience. Beth has just dropped off the soups and gotten a second "Bon appetit." "I think that we can do it," she says while returning for the third course. Caroline and Jennifer are beginning to face the reality that their amateur graffiti isn't going to be perfect, just before we see a guy on rollerblades attempting a backflip at the top of a ramp and splatting on his face instead. Seems symbolic. Beth serves the heavy third course while Mona admits that they're probably in trouble, but all they can do is complete the task. The country singers figure they're close to as well as they can do, and Beth tells us apropos of nothing how she and Mona (who is currently loading up the fourth course) have been away from their families for a month. "I want to bring this home for my family. This money would mean the world to us. I got three kids. I don't want to get this far and not make it into the top three. This is absurd! The absurdity of this." Well, yeah. That's kind of what you sign up for.
