At long last, Cord has finally figured out the secret to being able to read the clue: "How dizzy you ready to get?" he asks Jet. In a post-race interview, he berates himself, "Oh, you idiot." And seriously, for as strong as a team as they've been, with such a functional and mutually supportive relationship, there's just no excuse for that at this point in the game. It would be one thing if they hadn't both been aware of Jordan's spinning around, but they were, which makes this hang-up on their part just mystifying. I'd go so far as to call it avatarded. Jet commences turning. And Caite reaches the goal as well, and it takes Brent a lot less time to figure out the turning thing than it did Cord. Way to be outsmarted by the models, guys. Yeah, that thing? It happened.
Meanwhile, the brothers enter the hotel's convenience store to ask for directions to the Great American Music Hall, and are told it's about a ten- to fifteen- minute walk. It's about ten blocks, going by Google Maps. They're on their way. What, they don't want to sit in the back of a cab with a steamer trunk?
Cord and Brent are racing to transcribe their clues, and seem to figure out that their next destination is Tonga at about the same time, although Jet and Cord are running out slightly in front. As they run back out across the campus, a tiny dog with too much leash nearly attacks them. They run on past rather than throwing it down and hogtying it. Both teams are in cabs, Cord saying, "Man, Jet, I cannot believe I couldn't figure that out." And in considerably more embarrassing news, Caite asks Brent in their cab, "Where's our money and stuff?" Brent says, "You had it!" Caite tells their driver to turn around, and Brent flips out. As he should. Who forgets their Amazing Purse in the final leg? People who shouldn't be in the final leg to begin with, that's who.
The brothers' carrying hands are getting tired, so they pause at a street corner to swap ends. They also swap the gloves they've been using to protect their hands. Meanwhile, the Cowboys are at Tonga, and are soon carrying their trunk down the street toward a cabbie from whom they hope to get directions. Up ahead, the brothers are wondering how much further Polk is. The Cowboys learn that they're going to the corner of O'Farrell and Polk. Dan and Jordan are struggling with the trunk as the Cowboys run full-out with theirs, somewhere behind them. They'd probably be catching up if they hadn't biffed the Star Wars task.
