Beautiful sunrise. Scenic driving. Alex says New Zealand is pretty. Horns of Perseverance: "WONK-WONK-WONK WONK-WONK-WONK WONK-WONK-WONK WONK!" As they drive along, Chris says that they "got some figures on New Zealand," and he points out that for every person, there are ten sheep. "So they got that goin' for 'em, which is nice," he says, stealing liberally from Bill Murray. (Digression: Did you know that when Jesse Ventura met the Dalai Lama, The Body asked whether he'd seen Caddyshack? Tragically, that is not a joke.)
In a scene I just can't decide whether to laugh or cry about, Wil is driving the Weasel Camper while Tara snoozes in the cabin. "We had a little bit of a meltdown this morning," he says to the camera, "and it's, uh, partially my fault...it was edgy morning time, 3:00 AM...and I'm sorry, Tara." She is sound asleep. Oh, the humanity.
Cha-Cha-Camper. Danny is showing Oswald how to operate the camper controls. "I don't want to learn reverse, I just want to learn forward," Ozzie complains. He explains once they're on their way again that he only got his license a little while before the race started. "My first time driving a truck," he comments. "Or a house. Or whatever this may be." Heh. A relaxed Danny says from the back seat that he has total faith in Oswald, and that it's great to have a partner he can depend on. Aww. You know, Oswald is more flashy in his fabulousness, but Danny is just a doll and a half. I think in their relationship, he's kind of the dad, if that makes sense.
