Tian and Jaree manage to shove their way onto a train as well, but they're just as squashed as everybody else was. And then you hear Jaree: "Somebody just grabbed my boob. Don't grab my boob, dude, or I'll throw you off the train," she says ominously, and not at all figuratively. Tian then notes that she's getting pinched, followed by Jaree noting that she's being "fondled." "Jaree?" Tian calls out, unable to even see her partner through the crowd. "I'm over here, T," says a weary Jaree, who then comments, "Oh, man, the smells are...just everything on this train is making me sick." "Baby, we can do this," Tian says from her position crushed up against a wall. Jaree grimaces.
Commercials. Okay, that is Frankie from Another World and that is Lois Lane's evil memory doctor, and I have entirely too much of television history rattling around in my brain.
Back on the train, Jaree is commenting that "everybody was fondling [her]." In a voice-over, she says, "Nothing has happened that would define us as a 'girl team' until today." Tian, in turn, voices over that she and Jaree are "second-class citizens here," so they're sticking together and gutting it out.
ClownJon is in the process of balancing something on his nose again, in an effort to entertain a crowd that is looking on with some interest but little amusement. "Nothing. Hard crowd," he says. I really felt for him there, because I think he's used to Clown being the universal language, which it often is, and he was clearly pretty surprised and more than a little embarrassed to see it fail him that time.
Elsewhere, Monica and Sheree receive the bad news from a helpful local that where they're trying to get for the Suds option is "very far from here." He tells them they can go by train, but it's far away. Sheree voices over that she's been "living the life" recently, so it's been a while since she really struggled with something as hard as this. "It's really been awakening for me," she says. She and Monica stand on a street, looking upset and frustrated.
Al and ClownJon are now on the train to the Duds option, and ClownJon notes from the sea of arms in which he finds himself that "the New York subways are nothing compared to this."
Now, we arrive at the Mahalaxmi train station, which is apparently where you head if you're looking for Suds. The Chipsters are the first to get there, and they ask directions to the Suds location. Phil re-explains the Detour for no particular reason, recapping that six of the seven teams are on their way to Suds, while Al and ClownJon have elected to go for Duds. "Honey, we're gonna wash some clothes!" Chip (I think) calls out as they run toward the Laundromat. Heh. When they get there, it is not immediately obvious to them where the stuff they're supposed to wash is located. As it turns out, they have run right past the bags of laundry with the red and yellow ribbons on them. Duh. He brings it back to Reichen in triumph. They open the bag, shocked at how really muddy and dusty the clothes are. We see them washing the clothes in the vats, as Reichen voices over that they "got completely filthy, covered by mud and clay." Oh, and he thinks there might have been some manure, too. Aw, manure. It's like a motif.
