Eric yells up at Jeremy to start running. Dani yells up at Danielle to beat Jeremy. Eric gets all, "Hold on, sassy filly!" at her. "You've got to make the girls feel good," Eric says, "so you can get in their pants later." Wait, wait -- make that three hours that he can pleasure a woman. I mean...way to hit those duh-ble entendres, dude. ["I have chosen, for my own sanity, to believe that he's being at least partly ironic about this stuff, because a world in which someone is that dense that he thinks that's acceptable is not one in which I wish to live." -- Sars] In fact, Jeremy gets to the top of the stairs first, followed by Ray. Desiree and Danielle are farther down, fairly near each other. Joseph is #1 at the second stairway.
Jeremy begins his rappel. Joseph does, too. Lake has arrived at Roof #2, meaning that he passed Dave. Boo! BJ, of course, is the first to his roof. He starts to head down. Danielle and Desiree have now arrived at Roof #1 and have plunked down to wait. Jeremy finishes the rappel first, and as Eric salutes him as "the best fireman ever," they open their next clue, now in first place. It tells them to head to the bus station, where they will pick tickets for a bus to Brotas. The available departure times are 10:15 AM, 11:15 AM, and 12:15 PM. Then, they'll bus it 150 miles to Brotas, where they'll choose a VW Beetle (old kind, not new kind) and pluck a clue from it. They leave.
Joseph finishes the rappel. "Okay, babe, let's go," she says. A-ha! They are the "babe" team. There's always one. At least. BJ finishes the rappel, and they leave. Lake rappels. "Hay-ll, yeah!" he cries. SHUT. UP. Yolanda hollers for Ray as he rappels. Lake is the next to finish, and then Ray, so those teams are on their way. Lake and Michelle are traveling via bus rather than taxi, which is an interesting choice. I sure hope nothing goes wrong! Lori cheers for a rappelling Dave, who is slightly ahead of a now-rappelling Desiree. This is all kind of like recapping challenges on Survivor, by the way: "This happens. That happens." I can't really help it unless I start making things up. Which, come to think of it, wouldn't be a bad idea. Anyway, on the roof, Danielle is beginning to flip out a little bit about the rappel.
