Monica and Sheree and the Chipsters arrive at the Salzburg airport. They discuss a 6:35 flight to Frankfurt. Meanwhile, outside, Tian and Jaree de-cab and head inside. Jaree greets the other teams cheerfully, because she's apparently the social director for her increasingly abrasive, unfriendly partner. And you know you have problems getting along with others when a girl who was putting her fingers in her ears and going "la la la" last week is your goodwill ambassador.
Back at the Attnang station, Josh and DadSteve board the train. "Do you see anybody else here?" DadSteve asks, perhaps a little unnecessarily, given that they can't really change their minds now. "No, I don't. The friggin' ghost train," Josh says sarcastically, as if he's upset with someone other than himself. You know, being wrong is really hard. Being wrong in front of your parents when you've insisted you were right is probably harder than being wrong at any other time. In fact, it's so hard that I am unwilling to provide any examples of any time I might have been wrong in any such situation involving my parents, in case they ever find out I said anything about it. So I sympathize with Josh, but he's been lecturing his dad about principles of racing since the first episode, and this bit of comeuppance was probably inevitable. "I apologize. I was wrong," Josh says on the train. "See, sometimes Dad's right," DadSteve says. Josh stares miserably out the window. Aw. (Shut up. I'm allowed a moment of weakness.)
4:43 AM. Chuck and Millie, leaving nearly an hour after the last team ahead of them. Millie lays down the blunt-force metaphor about how it's hard for her to be patient with Chuck, because he's so slow. Duck your head, because if it hits you, that sucker will knock you on your ass and leave a mark. Millie, I notice, wears one of those big puffy marshmallow-man winter coats that I think are so impractical in this setting -- couldn't you find a better compromise between warmth and space management? Chuck gently voices over that Millie's extreme competitiveness is not always a good thing, in his opinion, at least from a relationship perspective. I think that what Chuck is too polite to say is basically this: "Millie's great, but if she were less pushy and mean, I probably would have proposed by now."
