Alex prepares to drive the car across the river, and Lynn gives him step-by-step instructions. It's pretty cute, actually, and pretty functional, the way Lynn tells him at every moment what to do now. Not everybody could pull that off, so I give Lynn his due. I certainly couldn't do it, given that I would either forget which pedal was which when I didn't have my feet on them or hit the person I was trying to instruct. They get through the river and go.
Brian and Greg marvel at the elephants as they pass them. They sort of almost roar back at the elephants, like you would at a really awesome frat party.
Rob completes the Roadblock, and they're ready to go. They stop and grab their clue on their way out. The clue tells them to drive to the pit stop at the Khwai River Lodge. And the last team to arrive may be eliminated. Rob and Amber hop in their car and go, which makes a trailing Kelly very unhappy. "Come on," she nags whiningly as he finishes the last log. ("Kelly bears all things." -- 1 Kellyrinthians 13:7.) "Kelly, chill for a minute," Ron says, and then he hops back in the car. As they drive along, Kelly says, "I have nothin' to say to you now. What you just said to me was absolutely rude." Ron stops, and they hop out and get their clue. "You need a new attitude," she says when they are on their way. ("Kelly is not arrogant." -- 1 Kellyrinthians 13:4.) "So what did I say to you?" asks a confused Ron. "I don't even know what I said." Kelly knows, though. "You said, 'Shut the F up' to me," she says coolly. ("Kelly rejoices with the truth." -- 1 Kellyrinthians 13:6.) Ron is shocked. "No, I didn't," he tells her. "That's what you just said," she repeats. "Yeah, you did." "No, I did not!" he says, unsure when she turned kee-razy. "Ah really don't think ah said 'shut the eff uuup,'" Ron says, probably thinking that if he said it while in a fugue state and therefore missed it, he really is sorry, because he would have enjoyed being conscious for that moment. "You've been acting like a jerk to me all day today," she says. "You're a piece of trash redneck." ("Kelly is kind." -- 1 Kellyrinthians 13:4.) ["Let she who is without tank-top-cut-down-to-Jesus butt-crack-chest cast the first piece-of-trash stone." -- 2 Sarssalonians 3:4]
Uchenna and Joyce complete the task, and they stop to grab their clue. They read it and head for the pit stop. "I don't see any teams close," Joyce says.
Here come Meredith and Gretchen to the Roadblock area. They grab their post. As they get up to the first log, she starts to kibitz about pushing it with the car, and he asks for some "slack." Hee. Yeah, back off, lady! Not really. Meredith rather kicks ass as he gets out of the car and ropes up the first log.
Lynn and Alex spot a little running pig-like thing (don't email me!) along the road. "God, that's like a -- I don't even know!" Lynn says excitedly. Again, I am so conflicted. I want to like him. Stop being a jerk so I can like you, you jerk! "Watch out for that stick," Lynn says cheerily, and then...*bonk*. They have a flat tire. They get out and survey the damage. "Wow," Lynn says somewhat dryly. "This is a rough day." Heh.
