And what are Charla and Mirna doing? Blowing. The. Whistle. It's not even a full episode in, and already, the whistle makes me grind my teeth. "How are we going to find a taaaaaaxiiiii!" Charla complains.
Brandon and Nicole and Colin and Christie dump their meat. (Ew.) Then Marshall and Lance and Dennis and Erika. As it turns out, Kami/Karli is still hanging around, and five teams (including Jim and Marsha) wind up bunched up at the taxi stand, requiring them to get somebody to call five cabs for them. Last to arrive at the butcher are Chip and Kim, who meet up with Marshall and Lance at a different taxi-catching spot than the one where all the YDCs are hanging out. These two teams get cabs before the YDC cabs even begin to show up.
The rest of the teams gradually get cabs out of the meat district until Dennis and Erika and Colin and Christie are the last ones left waiting. Colin and Christie take the next cab, leaving Dennis and Erika as the last to get on their way to the blue and white hotel. Erika complains to Dennis when Colin and Christie are gone that he shouldn't have let them have that cab, because she actually saw it first. He voices over that after the incident at the airport, he was concerned that everybody hated him, so he was trying to do something to rehabilitate his reputation a little. ["Raaaaaaace!" -- Sars] Next time, I think he should send flowers or something. "We're in last place right now," Erika laments.
Commercials. Special vitamins for the low-carb people. Oh, what a world.
When we return to Dennis and Erika waiting for their taxi in desolation, she's complaining that they're in "dead last place." He protests that they aren't. Well...yes, you are, actually. He interviews that other teams have passed them "because of [his] niceness." When they finally get a cab, she bitches some more about "Mr. Fair-Play over here," and how he cost them the cab, blah dee blah. Yeah, time to drop it, girlie. That ain't nice.
The blue and white hotel. Alison and Donny get there, and although they look across the street from the hotel first, Donny's eyes fall on a flag at the hotel itself. They run inside there, but Alison mutters, "There's a clue. We're missing it." I wish she were less hateful, because she at least knows what she's doing. Inside, she protests that this clearly isn't where they're supposed to be, because there's no clue, so they've missed it. She forces him back outside. Meanwhile, Linda and Karen spot the clue box across the street as soon as they pull up, so they're actually the first to get to it. Alison and Donny quickly follow. (Not hard to find, once there are other people there with camera guys and whatnot.) Bob and Joyce are right there as well. "Oh my God, Detour," Karen says as she rips the clue.
