Cha-Cha-Cha heads from the bridge to the airport. In their cab, Oswald says, "You wouldn't happen to have a cell phone with you, would you?" The cabbie hands it over. Ah, the kindness of strangers. "Thank you very much," Ozzie says.
Taraweasel climbing the bridge. Wil comments that conquering his fear of heights was "a great experience, looking out and seeing the opera house," which is very humorously juxtaposed with a shot of him walking resolutely up the stairs, most definitely not taking his eyes off the stairs to look out at the scenery, including the opera house, lest he suddenly start thinking about falling to his death or dangling from the bridge by his safety harness or something of that sort. My love affair with the funny, funny editors continues.
In the Cha-Cab, Oswald tries to arrange a flight to Adelaide, starting out with, "Yes, hello, good morning," just as he always does. Not only does he get the flight arranged, but he finds out exactly what gate they're departing from once they make their way to the airport. They've arranged a 7:10 AM flight, but they need to speed along the taxi in order to make it. They're fairly sheepish about asking the driver to hurry up, which is quite a contrast from the teams that have been screaming at their drivers incessantly for seven or eight episodes. Gary and Dave grab a cab for the airport as well.
The Teeth finish up at the bridge, and Paige voices over that they just needed to try not to make any mistakes, and not to worry about the fact that they're in last place. Meanwhile, Tara and Wil get a taxi, and Wil rather dimly tries to tell the driver about Coober Pedy, which is of course completely irrelevant at this point. It's like telling the lady who sells you a plane ticket the address of the house you're staying at on the other end -- doesn't care, doesn't need to know. "No, no, no, we need to get to the airport," Tara points out, "to go to Adelaide." Right on, Bony. In case you haven't noticed, Wil is getting really fuzzy-headed as he becomes more and more exhausted. In the cab, Tara praises him for having climbed the bridge in spite of his crippling fear of heights, and he beams some more, much as he did back at the hotel when she laughed at his joke. This is so weird -- if he likes her this much, why is he so damn mean? God, men are mystifying.
Cha-Cha-Cha gets to the airport, goes right to good old gate seventeen, and makes the 7:10 AM flight. Thunk gets to the Sydney airport next, and the agent tells them that the next flight to Adelaide is at 8:10 AM. As Tara and Wil bail out of their cab, he runs immediately inside, but she does take a second to call over her shoulder to the driver, "Thank you!" Sigh. I honestly think if she were playing with somebody else, Tara would probably be okay with me. I think Dave and Tara should have left Gary and Wil at home. This race would look completely different if they had. At any rate, they land the 8:10 AM flight as well. When the Teeth show up, however, their luck has temporarily run out yet again, because they can only get standby for the 8:10 flight. Blake gets on the phone and tries to find out whether they can get to Adelaide on any other flight, but they seem to be fresh out of miracles. They despair.
