6:47 AM. Paul and Amie. They tell us that they, too, ordered a cab the night before (making them not quite as dumb-as-dirt or non-strategic as they've seemed at other times), and they're expecting to encounter it at the bottom of the mountain. They take a few wrong turns, though, and have to wander for a minute, which brings us to
6:48 AM. Lenny and Karyn. She tells us in an interview that after their argument in Paris, they had some kind of conversation about meeting each other halfway, but the footage of them in the cab looks grim indeed. Karyn says she thinks it's all going to make the relationship stronger. Cue nationwide eye-rolling.
6:49 AM. Nancy and Emily. Nancy tells us how happy she is that she and Em are being given the chance to bond through all this extravagant travel, which is a nice change from the first episode, in which it certainly appeared to many observers that they'd made a horrible mistake that would one day lead to separate Thanksgivings. Em agrees that it's all going pretty well.
Paul and Amie are still desperately seeking their missing cab. Amie, finding something she has in common with the non-dearly-departed Light Hair and Dark Hair, mutters, "I hate France." What that has to do with her inability to find her transportation, I'm not quite sure. At any rate, by the time Paul and Amie locate a cab, it's being boarded by Nancy and Emily. Nancy says to the driver that both teams ordered a cab, and only one has showed up, so there's some confusion. Amie looks horrified, unable to believe that she is once again having cab difficulties. (She does not, however, call Emily a "fat bitch.") In fact, she's having such bad luck with cabs that I think if I were her, I'd switch to bicycles or roller skates or something. The silver lining is that the cabbie calls for another car, although this doesn't stop Paul from hurling something in frustration. Hey, Paul, don't take out your frustration on the French mountainside. Give le hoote, don't pollute. Once the environment has been adequately violated, Paul and Amie get to swearing a lot as Nancy and Emily reclaim the cab and take off. Paul is once again threatening to quit because Amie is so upset. He explains to the camera that he never wanted to do the race in the first place, and let me just say this: If you don't really want to do something like this, you shouldn't do it, because this is what will happen. All your little petty feelings that you don't really want to be there will leak out every day, which is what Paul is doing. He may not want to be there, but he came, and he should now suck it up.
