Kelly, oblivious to the humiliation that has just been visited upon her, gets out of the car and says the lap was "awesome." They take off for Marseilles. Kelly, of course, now won't need to get in a car for another week.
Chip and Reichen are in the lead heading into Marseilles, where it is now night. They find the gate for the port they're looking for, and the guy tells them that the gate is closed until 9:00 the next morning. They ask him how they can make themselves first in line, and he says they can't, because they can't wait by the gate. That was their first mistake; the gate guy doesn't care about the line or the rules or who's in first, so you don't ask him that. What you ask is, "Where is the closest place where I can park my car?" You do not do what the Chipsters do and head for a hotel as soon as they tell you that you cannot sit in your car directly in front of the gate. Tian and Jaree, when they arrive, do the same thing -- check at the gate, then head for the hotel.
When David and Jeff arrive, however, they decide that they're going to stay right by the gate, and they actually park directly in front of it where Chip and Reichen were initially turned away. Monica and Sheree pull in just behind them.
DadSteve and Josh, meanwhile, continue the long trek across France, as do Kelly and BuffJon and Dave and AirSteve. I have to say, AirSteve looks pretty damn close to deceased for a guy who's driving. I think if I were in the passenger seat, I'd move the rearview mirror as close to his mouth as possible so I would notice if it stopped fogging up. AirSteve and Dave manage to make it to the Marseilles line in third place, having not only beaten BuffJon and Kelly, but passed the International Society of Clowns and Virgins (motto: "A little song, a little dance, nothing but seltzer down your pants") and DadSteve and Josh. With three cars now in front of the gate, the security guy reappears to deliver the news that they can't park there. He will allow them, however, to park on the shoulder of the exit ramp that leads to the port. See? That's much closer to what you do in this situation. DadSteve and Josh and the ISCV soon follow, so there's a line of six cars sitting on the shoulder. Kelly and Jon are still missing at this point.
