Back at the counter, Nicole confirms with Marsha that they're guaranteed for 10:30. Linda, meanwhile, explains that she booked herself and Karen, as well as Bob and Joyce, on the 10:30, too. Christie and Colin and Chip and Kim follow. The Twinkies, however, have to go standby on the 10:30, because Chip and Kim took the last confirmed seats. They speculate that they might be "screwed at this point." Hee hee, that's so sad, I can barely bring myself to grin from ear to ear.
5:30 AM. Mirna buys tickets for the 9:40 flight. Marshall and Lance get tickets on it as well. Nicole then comes up to that counter, and is told the flight is full. She asks to be put on standby for the 9:40 flight. Brandon, meanwhile, explains that he's in line for standby for the 9:10, so it looks like perhaps Marsha didn't get them on standby. Colin and Christie are trying to get on standby for that flight, too. "Please, por favor," Christie says, at which point Colin holds up his shushing finger. "Shhhh," he says. "Just stop talking, okay? Because you're real high-strung and it's stressing these people out." Yeah, you can keep the shushing finger to yourself, there, dear, if you don't want it broken off at the knuckle. What is she, eleven years old? Not to mention, "high-strung"? Coming from a person who calls himself "the most intense person to ever run the race," and who looks like he regularly grinds glass with his teeth? Shut up. As Christie looks at him most unhappily, Colin asks the ticket lady if they can be put at the top of the standby list for the 9:10, and the lady complies. He smiles coolly, because of course, it's easy to be nice to her. Someday, he's going to forget, and he'll be nice to Christie and shush the ticket agent, and he'll find himself on a one-way flight to Akron.
