The New School racers (Firecop, Heave, FloZach, and Jill and John Vito) load their trucks with wine. Firecop drops a crate of wine. CRASH! So sad. You know, I would have charged some kind of penalty for that or something, because the reason he dropped it was that he was carrying three at once to try to gain an edge. I hope the show paid the winery for all those nice bottles. The trucks take off.
Things are tense out on the water between my least favorite teams. Aahab beats Teri and the Hat to the other side. Oh, the indifference!
Firecop is looking for the restaurant where they need to deliver the wine. They make the first delivery successfully, and Jill and John Vito follow. Meanwhile, Ian and Teri unload the ninety-pound wine barrel (and who's pushing it? She is, of course, while he asks directions), as do Aaron and Arianne. FloZach and Heave begin their deliveries. In the John Bon Vito truck, he rereads the directions. You know, reading the directions is a good thing. Firecop doesn't read them, though (at which point failure to read clues carefully stops merely being a subtle underpinning of this episode and becomes a downright theme), and tries to make the second delivery at the place where the clue says they have to go last. (You have to hit the Majestic Café last, you see, because that's where the clues are.)
Jill and John Vito approach the second delivery point. He says "hola" to the people in the restaurant. BZZZT! It's Portugal, buddy. But they seem to politely know he means to be friendly. He's happy to hear that they're the first to reach this point.
Heave truck. Eve is sitting in the driver's seat for some unknown reason, despite the fact that she can't get the truck into gear and Heather can. So Heather keeps reaching forward between the front seats and putting the truck in gear so Eve can drive. Excuse me, but why doesn't Heather just drive? I feel like there must be some explanation for it, but it's hard for me to figure out what it would be. ["I'm going to go way out on a limb and suggest that said explanation contains the phrase 'dumb bints.'" -- Sars] At some point, getting out and pushing the truck would have been faster than what they're doing.
