Gary and Matt are team number three. Marcy and Ron are en route to the Road Block. And Keri tells Lance that she's done being yelled at, "So you gotta stop if you want a teammate." I don't know, that's a big if. They continue being lost, and when she tells him to ask for directions, he says, "I'm done with you." Yeah that was a big if.
After the ads, they find a cab and end up getting in it to ride (back?) to the Road Block. As they ride, she calls him on acting like she's supposed to know everything, and blaming her when she doesn't. "You know this is an extreme situation," he whines, but she says it isn't; it's just directions. Well, it's directions for a million dollars, so I have to award that point to Lance. Still, She's tired of him blaming her, and he claims that his frustration isn't with her, but "this whole frigging thing." She does not let him off the hook. "I'll take my apology now." she informs him. "All right, if that's the case, I'm sorry," Lance says. Awesome. Keri is my hero.
Brian and Ericka arrive at the mat in fourth place, and are obviously pretty thrilled to have come "dead last to fourth." If they advance that many places in the next leg, they'll come in negative-second!
Ron and Marcy are stuck in traffic, and Ron says, "If you don't have patience with traffic, you should not live in Ho Chi Minh City." "If you don't have patience with the opposite sex, you should not live on planet Earth," she responds, apropos of nothing.
Finally Lance an Keri reach the Road Block, just as Tiffany's finishing up, putting Team Inside Straight in sixth place.
Sam and Dan scramble onto the mat as dorkily as usual, in fifth place. If nothing else, they seem to have a knack for moving from the back of the pack to the middle.
At the Road Block, Lance is making up time, by making up rules, ignoring all the tools save the hammer and pretty much smashing the thing apart with his bare hands. And screaming, of course, to the point where the people who come here daily and endure the racket of the screw guns and the hammer blows and the clatter of components are looking over at him, like, "Dude, cold you keep it down?" "It was kind of the man thing to do," Lance says in an interview afterwards. If you put "cave" before "man." Marcy and Ron get out of their cab near the corner just as Canaan is finishing up and getting his and Mika's clue in seventh place. The complication of Lance's brute force and the destructive power of Keri's voice soon causes their second VCR to succumb, and he gets their clue despite just having thrown all the pieces in random directions as far as I can tell. Justin looks up as Zev impatiently tells him they're last (well, not counting the team that hasn't arrived yet, Zev). "Just smash it out!" Zev yells in frustration. Lance and Keri are off in search of a cab, officially in eighth place, and Justin finally abandons finesse and gets his and Zev's clue in ninth. And I bet they'll be able to recycle just as much raw material from his VCRs as they will from Lance's.
