Linda and Karen are driving into Montevideo. They find the disco, apparently the first to do so. Inside the Shake Mega Disco, it sort of looks like that episode of The Brady Bunch where Bobby was the safety monitor and wound up filling the laundry room with suds, only here, it's on purpose. (It's too bad that The Brady Bunch never spawned an Amazing Race team, because I think "Greg and Marcia: Brother and Sister/Dating" would be the best caption ever.) There are indeed crowds of folks on the dance floor, wiggling around in all the soap. Linda and Karen search for an inflatable globe. I love how Karen has a wad of foam on her head that looks almost like a smart, jauntily-cocked hat. I hope that all her friends and relations will be telling her for many years that whatever she's wearing would look even better if she added the soap hat. Eighty-year-old Karen: "How do I look?" Fifty-year-old Karen's Kid: "Good, Mom. But, hmm, the ensemble needs something...what would it be? Oh, right, the SOAP HAT!" And then they'd laugh. Anyway, outside, Alison and Donny pull up. They make their way inside as we watch Linda pop a globe. "Karen, I found it!" she screeches. The moms read the clue, which tells them to take the public ferry to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Phil explains that this will require a drive of about 100 miles to Colonia del Sacramento, and then the boarding of the ferry. Donny and Alison quickly find their clue also. A friendly man helps them find their way to Route 1, which is the road to the ferry, it appears.
In the Bowling Mom car, Linda says that it was "wild in there." She wonders aloud whether there are places like that disco in the United States. Karen insists that there are. "Wheeeere?" Linda screeches. "We don't have that in Palmdale!" "Not in Palmdale," Karen agrees dismissively. "Let's open one!" Linda screeches again. No offense, but I think a foam club operated by moms would probably not attract the really trashy clientele that they'd need in order to make a go of it. The really cutting-edge foam clubs don't serve pizza rolls and Sunny Delight.
In the Colin/Christie car, he looks half-asleep, which isn't so good, considering that he's driving at the moment. Although I did learn this week that three-year-old Little B can eat in his sleep, which he did at the table after half-dozing off during dinner. You haven't lived until you've seen a kid trying to lick jelly off a biscuit with his eyes closed. Anyway, Colin and Christie blow by Charla and Mirna, as Mirna scolds that he's exceeding the speed limit. He waves at them and passes anyway. You'll note that Charla and Mirna have already bled about fifteen minutes since they left the pit stop, as compared to Colin and Christie. As Mirna continues to bitch about Colin's speeding, Charla points out that the speed limit is now substantially higher than Mirna was thinking it was. Sucks to waste all your righteous indignation on a situation where you simply didn't read.
