And then: weirdest moment of the episode. Ron and Chris's cab driver appears to be gasping for breath, to the point where he seriously seems to be in medical distress. Like, he's wheezing and gasping. And Ron says, "I just hope he doesn't croak on us." Way to keep your compassion flowing, there, Ron. The cab driver dying with you in the cab would be bad, because it would slow your trip to what will turn out to be, ultimately, literally a stop to smell the flowers. This is God speaking to you, Ron. Get right with...whatever it is you feel you need to get right with, because this is not right, and the hard-breathing cabbie will not forgive you if your first words after he expires are "time credit." Oh, well. We will never hear of this driver again, so...I hope he had that checked out.
Jen and Nate are dropped at the temple and hop out. They run up the stairs and to the clue box. The Detour offers them Sense Of Touch and Sense Of Smell. In Sense Of Touch, you go to a building where you use cell phones to control robots playing a game of robot soccer. Oh, you heard me. Your robots have to score one goal for each team member, and then you're done. In Sense Of Smell, you have to use your nose only -- no touching, presumably -- to find a real flower in a shop full of artificial flowers. Jen figures that it's hard enough to tell the difference between the difficulty of the Detour options that they should just do whatever's closest, which I grudgingly admit is not a bad plan. What I love is that she says the two places are "a flower shop" and "a robot shop." I'm not sure the other place is a "robot shop." For about the third time today, Chris and Ron show up right when Nate and Jen are leaving, so that's...interesting. Nate and Jen get a guy to guide them to the flower shop as Ron and Chris open the Detour. Jen tells us that she and Nate are doing Sense Of Smell, because they've been told the two are both about the same distance, and she says she has "the nose of a bloodhound." In bed. WOW, I just grossed myself out.
