Hey, Warsaw! Good to see you! You have colorful street performers, some of whom are wearing armor! Apparently in case of angry fans! At 9:07 AM, the BQs land at, as it happens, Frederic Chopin Airport. They hustle for a cab to the palace. They ask the driver to go quickly, and he tells them "I'm on it," and they choose to drop it. Because they're not assholes, Mirna. Dustin tells us that she's excited about the piano business, because she played piano herself since she was a kid, and she claims that she really liked Chopin. Which I think is kind of like when Clay Aiken tells the girls in every city that he likes the girls in that city the best, but there's nothing wrong with flattery, even if you're flattering a dead Polish composer. She says she'll pretend it's the real Chopin, just like "meeting Santa Claus." I'm not sure what's funny about meeting Santa Claus. I've met Santa Claus. Hello, I used to live near the Mall of America. What's her point?
At 9:22 AM, Mirna and Charla and Danny and Oswald land.
The BQs find the palace. They run through the gates and follow the sound of the piano to Fauxpin, who's playing on a lawn. They rip the clue, which is a Detour offering a choice between Perfect Angle and Perfect Pitch. In Perfect Pitch, you go three-quarters of a mile and choose a piano and a set of tools. You use the tools to tune a single key on the piano, and then once a pianist plays a little Chopin and tells you it's okay, then you're good to go and you get your clue. In Perfect Angle (which is inspired by Marie Curie), you go a half-mile to the Escada boutique and grab a mannequin. Wait, seriously, this will relate to Marie Curie in a minute. Okay, you carry your mannequin to a diagnostic lab and take X-rays of it, and if you take the X-ray at the correct angle, you'll see the words of the clue spelled out. That is definitely the most morbid Detour of all time, spotting the clue that's been implanted in a mannequin. It's like something from Medical Malpractice Illustrated. Dustin thinks she can get the piano in tune, so they choose that. They get back in their cab. Dustin explains that with her piano experience, she ought to be able to figure out the tuning with the help of the promised demonstration.
Charla and Mirna get a cab. Apparently determined to dance with Polish stereotypes like Solid Gold dancers, they decide to have a little "hilarious" "fun" at the driver's expense. "You like Polish hot dogs?" Charla asks. "You like Polish sausage?" Mirna asks. He doesn't answer. He doesn't smile. He doesn't find this funny. "He doesn't like us too much," one of them says. I'm sort of glad they stopped with the hot dogs and the sausage, if I'm being honest. It could have been worse. Oswald and Danny get a cab, and they're providing a little contrast as Oswald apologizes to the driver for speaking to him in English and presuming he spoke English. The guy assures Oswald it's fine. Somehow, that exchange worked better as an ice-breaker than "You like Polish hot dogs?" Europeans are so touchy. Go figure.
