Kelly and Jon and David and Jeff arrive at the Attnang station before it can be cleared of clowns and virgins, so there's a big pileup. Kelly chats with Millie and Chuck about whether they're going to Munich or Salzburg. Well within their rights, Chuck and Millie decline to say anything about their plans. Incorrectly, however, Millie voices over that she doesn't think Jon and Kelly knew about the possibility of going to Munich. Millie also explains in what I believe is actually a pre-show interview that she thinks "withholding information is totally ethical," which is right on. Kelly, however, takes offense at Millie's rebuffing of her attempt to chat. "Millie," she voices over, "didn't want anything to do with us and just blew us off." Interestingly, Kelly is really addressing Millie's attitude, not Millie's refusal to provide information, and that may be a fair criticism as well. There are, after all, different ways to decline to help people, and some of them are downright friendly, as you know if you saw Ken put the screws to Teri last season while yelling, "Sorry, kisses, love you!" Millie needs to blow more kisses, maybe. After she checks with God to see if it's okay, of course.
Kelly and BuffJon, Millie and Chuck, ClownJon and Al, and David and Jeff all hop the same train, which is on its way to Salzburg en route to Munich. BuffJon says that he had the sense that the other three teams were all "trying to give [him and Kelly] the heave-ho." No, no, the Heave-Hos were last season. Rimshot!
Josh and DadSteve are arriving at the Salzburg airport, and they note that their lead is now gone because of the decision to train it instead of cabbing it. This is clearly making Josh feel like he's living on the bottom of someone's shoe, but several other teams made exactly the same choice, so while it was probably wrong, it was hardly a mistake that could only happen to you if you were on the low end of the totem pole of smarts. Which, let's face it, isn't that tall a pole at this point anyway. DadSteve and Josh find that the first flight to Paris is full, much to their consternation.
"Sorry, Reichen! I love you, Reichen," Tian taunts as she heads toward the plane, passing the Chipsters who are still waiting at the ticket counter to see if they can get on the Frankfurt flight. Reichen stands with his head down on the counter, waiting for the lady to see if she can get them some tickets. The agent eventually appears and tells Reichen that he's "in luck," because she can get him on the flight. Note that Reichen alone appears to be responsible for these particular plane tickets, given that he's the one who comes over and hugs Chip in relief while holding the tickets. There is scattered applause as they board at what appears to be the last minute, although it's impossible to tell who's clapping. It doesn't seem likely that it would be strangers. At least, strangers never applaud for me when I get on a plane. Perhaps I'm not chiseled enough. Anyway, The Amazing Yellow Line traces the route from Salzburg to Frankfurt.
