3:12 AM. (See how close behind Brandon and Nikki the Twinkies are? I think the Charla/Twinkie egg-eating race was totally overblown last week, and I think Charla and Mirna were significantly behind by the time they left that Roadblock.) In their cab, a Twinkie comments that they're going to the airport. So at least she's got that part down. One of them voices over that in general, they need to "slow down." Totally. After all, it's not a race, people. She refers to her team as "spastic," though, and that's kind of funny. She claims that the people in front are the ones that "really analyze the clue." You know, the world would be a better place were it not so densely packed with people who confuse the daunting task labeled "analyze" with the less-intimidating concept known as "read."
As Colin and Christie zip along in their cab, they are approached from behind by Linda and Karen's cab. So maybe they're not zipping all that much. Linda gloats happily about approaching Colin. "Okay, I'm not paying if they pass us," Colin says to his driver. Yeah. Except that you've already made the deal and accepted the service. At this point, you've got no argument. Indeed, in keeping with Chip's theory about what you put out and what you get back, Colin gets a big old face full of karmic blowback as Linda and Karen whiz right by him. He shakes his head. Intensely, of course. Is there any other way? What's more, Brandon and Nicole are only a couple of minutes behind, and before you know it, they pass Colin and Christie as well. So I think their driver really was, for reasons that will become clear, not able to go at full speed. Brandon happily notes that he and Nicole have made it into third place. Colin is not so excited about this turn of events. "You drive slower than my grandma," Colin spits at the driver. Of all the people who are going to enjoy watching this episode, I guess Colin's grandma is officially at the bottom of the list. Because he just insulted her, and also, she's related to him, and...really not a big week for family pride. In fact, it just might be a week to put a bag over your head when you go to Meatloaf Night at the retirement village. Just saying. Christie narrates sadly that they've been passed by two teams now, so they're in next to last place. Behind them, the Twinkies look...confused. Chip tells his driver that they just want to make the first charter, while Linda notes that "the pack's really close." Brandon says that he and Nicole are just trying to make the second charter instead of the third. The Bowling Moms get a taste of their own medicine when Brandon and Nicole pass them just like they passed Colin and Christie.
