Elsewhere, Uchenna and Joyce head for the finish. And now that they have already passed how much money they have, and after promising they could take care of the cabbie, Uchenna informs the driver that they in fact don't have the money to pay him. Boooo! Uchenna says they're going to make the money along the way. In other words, "Just go! We'll figure out how to pay you after you've already performed the services!" Again? Boooo!
Elsewhere, Rob miserably comments, "I knew everything was going way too smooth." Well, seriously. And then he prays to St. Anthony with the medal around his neck, so I can't root for them now, either.
Uchenna begs for money. At last, Rob and Amber find the cigar shop and head inside. They get the clue and go. You can basically tell in the car that they know it's probably over. It's written all over both of their faces, but I'd say it's Amber who really knows that they just got screwed.
Oh, and Ron and Kelly are arriving in Miami, but they are figuratively in Alaska with Guido.
Uchenna reminds us that they will win because they have faith in God. Such a turn-off. And what do you know? When they get to their destination, they cannot pay the driver who they have already promised to pay numerous times. "We'll take care of you" -- didn't deliver. "We'll make the money along the way" -- didn't deliver. Now, Uchenna wants the guy to take a ring in lieu of payment. Uh, not. Not only that, but the driver is visibly pissed off that they're trying to stiff him after he treated them so well. They hop out and start begging. Rob and Amber are approaching, or so they would have us believe. Ron and Kelly are on their way to Little Havana.
Uchenna actually tries to get someone to give him 50 dollars, and if you can show me where in the Bible it says someone should give you 50 dollars of their own money so that you can make a million dollars, I'll find that very interesting. I think I've never read that part. They get a little money from these people. Uchenna, incidentally, makes a comment about "we can't just run in; we have to make sure this man is covered," and what they don't tell you is that this is not altruism -- they were apparently told that they couldn't check in at the finish line when they hadn't paid their driver, which makes perfect sense, because you have to finish the race, and that means having money for your cab, unless you can get your cab to accept less, which, really, why should he? Seriously. Why should he? You don't have an emergency -- you want to win money. Why should he work for you for free, or at a discount, just because you want a million dollars? You gotta pay your cabbie, and you gotta pay him in cash, and you gotta pay him immediately upon delivery; that's my feeling. Particularly when you've reassured him repeatedly that you will pay him, trying to get him to accept a ring is just...not that cool, to me.
