Ken and Tina arrive at the Auckland airport and go straight to the "Flight Centre," a red-bordered room off the main concourse staffed with ticket agents behind computer terminals. "Who's the fastest booker?" Tina asks them. Doesn't "booking" already mean "fast," in a sense?
Kelly and Christy, Team Divorced, are leaving at 9:32, more than an hour behind Terence and Sarah. Sucks for Terence and Sarah that they had that much of a lead, and they probably would have won the leg had there not been a Fast Forward in it. Which Terence lost for them, of course. In an interview, Team Divorced admits that while they're both really smart, they've been tripped up by their rush to do things quickly. But they're going to "utilize [our] brainpower to be number one next time." Here's an example of what they mean: in the car, while Christy drives, Kelly says, "I think we should go straight to the airport, get in line at the first ticket counter we see, and we'll go with the best flight." Intellects like lasers, I'm telling you.
Ken and Tina are learning that their best bet is to fly Singapore Airlines to Singapore and then Jetstar to Siem Reap. The bad news is that since that flight doesn't leave Auckland until after noon, they fear that Terence and Sarah will probably be able to make it as well. Except they don't know that the chances of that happening just went down, because Terence just got pulled over by a cop. Naturally this happened one second after Sarah told him he was doing a great job driving. People really need to stop doing that. As Ken and Tina are getting their boarding passes from a ticket agent, she's praying that Terence and Sarah don't make it and Terence is being told by the cop, "I caught you doing 117 coming along there." Apparently it's a 100 KPH zone. But they appear to get back on the road soon enough, unlike here in the U.S., where getting a speeding ticket is a long, drawn-out process. Like we weren't obviously already in a hurry. Jeez. Oh, and what else have we learned from the respectful way Terence dealt with the officer? As obnoxious as he may be sometimes, he is no Colin. Once they're back on the motorway, Sarah remarks to Terence that she always thought he was a slow driver. "You're such an ass," Terence whines, as the soundtrack makes a sound like someone playing power cables. "That's the way you comfort somebody who just got a speeding ticket?" Well, that raises the issue of whether a person who just got a speeding ticket that affects both players deserves comforting, and I'm speaking as a person who once went through quite a run of them. In fact, I had them bound. But of course Sarah apologizes, because it's easier than explaining to him why he's wrong. If she can't talk him out of that hairdo, she's never going to talk him out of anything.
