After the ads, the argument picks up where it left off, which Nick telling Vicki to keep up from now on, "Because I'm not waiting for your ass ever again." She tells Nick "it's not worth stressing over," but he disagrees. "Gotta suck it up," he snaps. Vicki starts crying, and he asks her why, like he doesn't know. "We stop, we go home," he says. I'll have to remember he said all this in the event someone stops at some point during this leg, for whatever reason. Vicki keeps crying and tells us, "He keeps yelling at me." Yes ,we've noticed that. "He's never had asthma so he doesn't know what it feels like." And if he did, I'm sure he'd say something empathetic like, "Quit crying." Oh, never mind, that's what he says anyway.
The first ferry docks at Cheung Chau island, and the teams run through a seaside boardwalk-type area. Except not so much for Claire, who isn't much of a runner, in case you haven't heard.
"This sucks so bad," Nick says as he and Vicki get on the later ferry. Could be worse; the ferry could sink. Or it could be better; only Nick could sink.
Jill/Thomas and Nat/Kat find the clue on a cliff uphill a ways and read, "Ferry yourselves to Kowloon," which is another area of Hong Kong. Then they'll have to find the Majesty Chinese Restaurant, which is where their next clue is. I thought Chinese restaurants in China were just restaurants, which shows what I know. Brook and Claire arrive at the clue box just as the other two teams are leaving, and Brook hurries an increasingly sweaty Claire along after they get their clue. On the way back to the ferry, Claire complains that she can't be athletic, and Brook says, "But you can be tough." In an interview, Claire says this isn't what she does (Brook shakes her head like, no shit), and goes on to say that she's impressed with herself if she runs even a little. She should go on The Amazing Race, then. Back in real time, she tells Brook she has to do this at her own pace. "Of course. Heaven forbid you do it at anyone else's," Brook snipes. Yeowch! Having delivered that barb, she then decrees, "Let's not talk, let's just focus and run." Nice for her. They just barely end up making the ferry with the other two teams, and Brook says, "Let's hug it out." "We did suck it out, "Claire says. Brook clarifies, and they hug it out. I missed the sucking it out, though.
