First to the subway station, logically, are Gus and Hera. Gus, again, looks very tired and can hardly breathe. That's just uncomfortable to watch, a little. Inside, they ask for tickets, but when they get there, they learn that the station doesn't take U.S. dollars, so they're going to have to change some money. Maybe they can change it into an oxygen tank. Kris and Jon are at the subway station next, then Hayden and Aaron. These teams exchange a friendly high-five. "Did you hear Jonathan screaming at Victoria?" Hayden says.
And that takes you directly to the back of the Spazpants cab, home of the most uncomfortable Race scene of all time. Jonathan is indeed screaming at Victoria, and the quarters are very tight, because they've of course got their sound guy crammed in the back seat with them. At the absolute top of his lungs, he yells, "WILL YOU SHUT UP AND LET ME TALK?" She starts to point to where they need to go on the map, and he grabs away what she's looking at and leans into the front seat with the driver. "We've got to go there," she insists. "We are there," he snarls back. "We're not -- no," she says, reaching over to fuss with the papers he's holding. He, with elbows and arms, shoves her hard to the side, out of the way, and into the sound guy, of course, as he yells, "Can I TALK to him?" "It's not right," she says as she rebounds back toward him. "We're --" And then his arm comes up. One arm, elbow cocked, in such a way that if he flings his arm sideways, his elbow will crack her jaw. And when he does, she unmistakably flinches to the side with her head. And...it's not just the arm that stayed with me. It's the flinch. It's not just a startled jump. It's not really even a startled jump. It's protective, the way you'd put your arms in front of you in dodgeball so you could take it on the forearms. You would hope she just moved out of the way of the elbow in case she got caught with it accidentally.
