5:27 AM. Derek and Drew. They explain that the first leg was really stressful for them (with the almost losing their backpacks and the blowing half the navigation and everything), and they've had a lot more fun since they got into the middle section of the race and got hooked up with the BoB alliance. Did Derek always have that arm, or is that new? Just asking.
Outside, FloZach grabs a cab in the direction of the airport, and is followed closely by BoB. In the Twincab, Derek says that they're wondering what you can possibly do on a leg for which you were given only a dollar. ("A Detour is a choice between two vending machines, each with its own pros and cons.") They comment that they're pretty solid with money, so they're not terribly concerned, just curious.
5:32 AM. Jill and John Vito. Her hair is down, very curly and Clairol Herbal Essence today. I have to admit that doesn't seem especially practical to me, but then, I'm sure that even if she had a beehive and a poodle skirt, she could crush me like a roach, so let's just pretend I didn't say anything. Jill explains in a voice-over that she and John Vito are both "strong-minded," but she thinks that it leads them to make better decisions and to ultimately work together really well. That may explain the lack of screen time -- not enough petty arguing. I think we've pretty well established by now that relationship functionality is really bad for your entertainment career. They get a cab outside as well.
Asshat at the airport. They've apparently chosen to go to Zurich on a flight that leaves at 6:05 AM. At 5:43, FloZach pulls up in their cab and makes a mad dash inside, with the Band of Brothers close behind. As Asshat boards the 6:05 flight, Ian voices over that he and Teri aren't aligned with anyone, though he fails to point out that this is because no one likes him. He claims that his philosophy is "be focused, stay the course." And "be all up the recapper's nose," of course, although he leaves that part out. He, Teri, and the hat walk in the direction of their plane. Meanwhile, the twins bring some information to the Bald Snark and FloZach that the only flights that look at all promising on the Arr/Dep board are the ones to Paris and Zurich. Speaking of Zurich, however, it appears to be too late for that flight, because here goes Asshat Airlines, on its way. The Amazing Yellow Line on The Amazing World Map springs to life and valiantly traces the route, though it is not any happier about accompanying Teri and Ian than the rest of us would be.
