Brandon starts up the ladder. All he can say at first is: (1) "Wooo!"; and (2) "Oh my gosh." Hee. He climbs up, voicing over that he got a little freaked partway up, because he was up so high. I like the fact that Brandon has pretty much no shame about admitting that he really doesn't care for the daredevil stuff, because it's kind of scary. (Brandon's Subconscious Hair: "[Sniffle]. I don't want to die.")
In the Singapore Airlines office, Christie claims that it's "an emergency" that she get them on the 10:10 flight, and they need tickets. They learn that they will indeed be able to make the flight, but only because it's delayed until 10:45. Of course, that will shorten up the connection in Singapore, and when they ask how short the connection time will be, the guy tells them, "It's fast." Nevertheless, when the guy is asked whether their odds of making the flight are good, he says, "Should be." Heh. You could tell right there that it was doubtful, because "Should be," under normal circumstances, would mean "Should be" in tourist-speak, which means, "Eh, probably not, but we'll get you on the next one, and we'll put you up in a hotel if we can't, and you probably don't care. After all, it's not a race. Have you seen the lovely Singapore Airport Hilton?" As they walk off, Colin eagerly overanticipates some more: "We could be finished with our leg by the time everyone gets in." Colin's karma stands off to the side, rolling its eyes and reading the paper. "Whatever," it says. "I have plenty of time. It's early." They get on their Singapore Airlines flight.
Chip and Kim crank down the clue, and Chip -- unsurprisingly -- is going to be the one doing it. Remember when Kim was worried about not doing her share of the Roadblocks? She got over it.
Linda and Karen find the marina.
Brandon crosses the girders, voicing over with detached terror about how he just goes forward and tries not to think about what's under his feet. Like, in this case, a lot of empty air through which he could easily fall, only to later wind up as a pile of broken bones. With fuzzy blond hair. He fetches the clue, and then he steps off to drop to the boat. He does his usual extreme yodel, and then he dangles from the rope, waggling his arms and legs and going, "Come and git me!" I love him. Seriously. He's completely ridiculous. He comes down into the boat, as Nicole teases the boat guys getting him down to be careful. "Don't hurt my boooyfriend!" Heh. He tells her (or maybe us) that he was definitely scared while he was doing that climb. "I've done the catwalk before, but not like that," he chuckles. They read their route information. They boat off.
Chip and Kim discuss the task facing him on the Roadblock, and they pass Brandon and Nicole boating the other way. And on the boat, Brandon is...I don't even know how I would describe the dance he's doing, but...okay. He's holding onto a bar that's over his head, and he pulls one foot up off the ground so that he's leaning to the side, and he's going, "Awk, awk." And then he switches over to the other side, bounces, and goes, "Awk, awk." I think he's delightful. Any guy who makes up his own Once Again I Have Cheated Death Booty Dance is okay with me. And so does the music guy, who gives him a backup drum beat perfectly synchronized with his dance. No, really. It's those little things you'd never even notice.
