Lynn and Alex get to American and find that they're way behind a lot of teams, and they're not going to make it on. They run outside and hop on the shuttle, which turns out to be the same one Rob and Amber and Gretchen and Meredith are on. They explain that this flight is full because, while it leaves later, it actually arrives earlier. All of these teams return to United, which is like, "Sure, now you love us." They all get seats.
Brian and Greg get to American and introduce themselves to all the teams already waiting in line there, who have a chance to get on the flight while they don't. Whichever guy winds up talking to whichever of the blondes, he assumes that the blondes are sisters, and is shocked to hear that they aren't. Ryan and Chuck get their flight on American. Uchenna starts counting teams and realizes that there are probably too many teams in front of him for him to make this flight.
Up at the front of the line, Patrick is hugging Debbie and Bianca, and Bianca says that Patrick reminds her of her first boyfriend. "Did he end up being gay?" Patrick asks. "No," she says. "Oh. I am," he says, and...I so feel his pain, but that was..."seamless," not. He laughs, and there's the overused rattlesnake sound, which just stands for all kinds of things these days. He and his mom get ticketed on American. Debbie kisses Bianca on the cheek and hugs her as Bianca says, all Ricky Ricardo, "I love you too, hooo-ney." (Actually, it's all Oswald, is what it is.) And then Brian or Greg turns to Greg or Brian and says, "Those two girls were...never mind." HA! That was awesome. The other of the boys laughs, because girls kissing is hilarious. Bianca and Debbie get on the flight, as do Megan and Heidi. But when Uchenna and Joyce get up there, there are none for them and none for Greg and Brian, so they head for United. There, they successfully get their tickets.
People wait for their various planes to take off. Both flights load up. As Ray and Ron (oy) talk at the gate, Ron decides there's no place like an airport to tell Ray that he was a POW, even though he says that he's not sure he wants everyone to know. Just his close personal friends from the first ten minutes, like Ray, and only in the right setting, like at the gate before the flight leaves. "No kidding," Ray says, just like Ron had just told him that he was a triathlon champion. Ron says that's why he came on the race. And he goes on to say that if he wins, he'll be giving the money to disabled veterans. And you won't find a more worthy (or in need) cause anywhere, pretty much, but...cheeeeesy. I mean, really. What's the point of hauling that out right now? Nothing, is what the point is. Ray, of course, says Ron has his respect, and they shake hands. Which must be really meaningful to Ron, since Ray had basically no choice.
