Meanwhile, Gary and Dave woo-hoo across Hong Kong Harbor on their way to the pit stop, where Phil is chuckling and waiting for them. They land on the mat, and Phil tells them they're first, and it's actually a relatively endearing Thunk moment. UNTIL, that is, Gary starts talking again. "The other teams used to think we were two stooges that were missing Moe. Now we got the mo, we got the big mo, we got the mo-men-tum..." Dave laughs. I look at my watch and wonder whether Sorkin's got something better on over at NBC. Then I remember the last few episodes I saw, and I go back to watching Gary.
Mary and the Fruit de-boat and are happy to see the clue awaiting them on the other side. They're the first to read the complete clue, incidentally, which reveals that the tea they're to drink at the herbalist (Peach pronounces it "HERbalist" also) is a tea to cure fatigue. This makes them laugh. Aww.
Taraweasel is looking for the tea, too, and they finally find it. "Hit me with the tea, baby," Tara says. I'm about ready to hit her with something a little stiffer than tea, that's for sure. They down the drink, and she makes a face. Their next clue takes them to "the world's busiest container port," where they'll find further instructions. Phil explains that it's a "maze...of thousands of metal shipping containers!" Thank you, Phil-ence Olivier, for the dramatic reading.
Taraweasel jumps into a cab just as Boston finds the tea. They drink (Chris, of course, says "Cheers, dog," because how could we recognize him if he didn't?). They're off. The Teeth stand on a street corner, with Blake wondering aloud whether they might be eliminated. As Boston dumps their stuff in the back of a cab, Alex tells the driver that they need to go "very fast," and then mimes a stiff-armed, steering-wheel-clutching, accelerator-stomping example of aggressive driving, complete with revving noises, and then he playfully smacks the driver on the arm. I have to say that out of all the ways to get your driver to go fast, that's probably one of the best I've seen. I think that would work, no matter what country you're in or what language you speak. So score one point for Li'l No-Neck.
