Caite is out on foot, asking people where Taittinger La Marquetterie is while Brent follows along in the car. Nobody seems to know. Or word has gotten out that there are swarms of Americans shuttling between Taittingers today and they don't want to add to the confusion.
Carol spots a flagged bunch of grapes two rows over, and sends Brandy around to get it. "You have the best eyes ever," Brandy says. They're pretty happy, and they get their clue in second place. "I would like some champagne, please," one of them says in French. Driving off the grounds, Brandy muses, "I wonder if the children are happier here because they grew up around people drinking champagne." I suspect the children are happier because they drink champagne themselves.
Jordan and Dan's pyramid is making good progress, although theirs has a square base rather than the triangular one in the demo. This is problematic for a couple of reasons. One, they're going to end up with the wrong number of glasses. Two, they're failing to take advantage of the inherent stability of triangles, which is an engineering concept so basic that it's pretty much the only one I know. And third, three champagne glasses up against each other have a narrower gap between them than four champagne glasses against each other do, allowing for more stable staking of the next level. Behold, my three-point argument! Triangles FTW! Jordan wants to move with the beat of the music, which Dan wisely has no time for. "It makes me nervous," he says. Jordan thinks their progress is being mirrored by the music. The world where Jordan lives must be a nice place to be.
Steve and Allie find the right Taittinger on the second try, and opt for Terra. "Hopefully these grapes pop out at me like that curb did," Steve says. Just what he needs, a bashed-up shin.
Carol and Brandy pull over to ask a policeman for directions to L'Orrca. Brent and Caite, who have still been trying to get directions to Taittinger, also decide to ask a policeman. It's the same one Brandy is talking to, so they instead of going ahead and asking, they just decide to follow the other team as they pull out. "Yes, we caught up to the lesbians," Caite says. "We're awesome!" Brent agrees. Both statements are equally correct. Carol and Brandy run down the hill behind L'Orrca to the mat, and Phil, seeing Miss Team USA approaching behind them, invites them to "Come on in, guys." As they do, Brent realizes, "We didn't do the Detour." The mime pops his eyebrows eloquently at them, as they realize they have to get back to the race. In mime, it's the equivalent of "You guys are even stupider than someone who chooses a profession that everyone hates." "We've done that twice now!" Brent realizes as they run back to their car. "Damn, I wanna get the stupid lesbians out. I hate them," Caite whines. That's so much less mean than their joke about her wearing a tiara.
