Sam and Dan look almost done, but Dan is complaining about the time Sam's spending on that broken arm. "I'm covering this dirt, Dan," he protests, and utters a line that should have been this episode's title: "I can't have dirt all over him or else the rabbi's gonna be pissed!" Yes, we all remember that episode of Seinfeld.
Brian and Ericka reach the Charles Bridge and decide on Lager. "I used to be a server, I can carry that stuff," Brian says. They ask directions from a guy in a doorway, who unhelpfully slurs, "I'm lost also." They leave him to it, Ericka adding, "And drunk." She's not kidding; dude is so tanked his face is blurry. Fortunately for the Americas, a cab pulls up, and the driver directs them 700 meters thataway. Now that's precise.
Meghan and Cheyne reach the Old New Synagogue, and the old bearded Rabbi looks over their Golem with approval. "That ain't bad. Very nice work." The younger rabbi gives them their clue, and off they go to the Pit Stop, once again in first place. What else is new. Phil says that this week, the Pit Stop is Strelecky Ostrov, whose establishing shots were either filmed under a very rapidly darkening sky or in time-lapse. "This small island next to the world-famous Charles Bridge is the Pit Stop for this leg of the race," Phil informs us. "The last team to check in here may be eliminated." The mud-caked pair find a taxi with a perky female driver and offer to pay her extra to take them there. And to wipe down her own seats afterward, presumably.
Sam and Dan are dragging their Golem from the riverbank up to the street, bickering once again. Sam suggests Dan use one of his own arms to hold the Golem's broken one in place. For some reason, Dan wants to park their Golem right there in the middle of the street, yelling, "That will stop a car! Dumbass, put it up!" Is Dan also going to suggest adjusting the broken arm to hold up one hand like a mythic traffic cop? Sam tells Dan to stop being immature, and then devolves right into sarcastic sniping right back at him as they stand behind their Golem, which is now guarding the middle of the road. Legends of it will be passed down through generations of cobblestones. Dan explains in a post-leg interview that he wanted to find the synagogue before schlepping the Golem around, "and Sam didn't want to do that." Sam doesn't even want to look in the camera at this point. As they spot a passing taxi to break their deadlock, a camera happens to notice a clock on a lamppost that reads almost 2:00 AM. Damn, this is a long leg. The cabbie gives them directions, and as they return to their waiting Golem, Dan starts to voice doubts about whether their directions are valid. "Dan, absolutely, we're going there, okay?" Sam snaps, cutting him off.
