It looks like a race to the Pit Stop between Team Go Team and Margie|Luke, all of whom are stressing out at the traffic and the red lights. We cut back and forth between the two cabs as they both seem to be approaching the high, lit-up tower. But it looks like Jaime and Cara are arriving first, and they rush out of their cab and through the north entrance, where Phil is waiting by the mat. Jaime's already like Halle Berry on Oscar night, and they both nearly lose it when Phil says that they are "the first team to arrive." Uh-oh. Of course, they've never won a leg, so how would they know that if all were well, he would have told them they were team number one? And furthermore, do they not notice his grave expression? The lack of a greeter? Of course not. In fact, they're still jumping up and down like loons when Phil interrupts, "But guys?" At least he didn't say "However." He has reached into his back pocket for a clue, which he holds out for them. "This leg of the race is not over. You are still racing. Here is your next clue." Jaime buries her face in Cara's shoulder, but neither of them makes a move for the proffered clue. To be continued! Man, that's got to hurt, to win their first leg and have it be this one. In fact, Phil? You might just want to step away from Jaime before she fully comprehends what you just told her.
