Meredith and Gretchen are on the way to the pit stop, as are Greg and Brian, though almost certainly not at the same time. Sure enough, the team that approaches Phil at the pit stop is the indefatigable Meredith and Gretchen. "Oh my God, Meredith," Gretchen says. Phil compliments them on "going and going and going," and Gretchen says, "The old Energizer bunnies," as Meredith laughs. Okay, I love them a little bit. Not totally, but a little bit.
Aaand here come Brian and Greg. Brian: Furry earflap hat, sunglasses, swim trunks, shoes. Greg: Knit hat, sunglasses, scarf, swim trunks, shoes. They deadpan it as the greeter welcomes them. Phil looks off the mat, grinning and trying to figure out how to do this. He gives a small chortle, then gets it together. "Brian and Greg," he says. "You're the last team to arrive. I'm sorry to tell you you've both been eliminated from the race." Aw, crap. They agree that at least they "went out in style." "What's the idea behind this, uh, getup?" Phil asks them. Brian explains that they figured maybe if he saw them in these particular outfits, he wouldn't be able to eliminate them. Phil tells them there's nothing he can do for them. Greg talks about how Brian's his big brother, and he couldn't have done the race with anybody else, and they'll remember it well, and the boys jump in the pool together, and awwwww! That was sad. Deserved, but sad.
Executive Producer? Jerry Bruckheimer.
Up next: Clip show! Yeah, people. Gear up. There's no reason to only write three recaps a week when you can write four.
