Cut to a shot of Marie marching through the airport, complete with a military-style snare drum rat-tat-tatting on the soundtrack like she's Sue Sylvester or something. This is ridiculous, because Marie lacks Sue's cuddly personality. She comes rolling up behind Tim & Danny at a ticket counter and demands, "What're you doing, Oklahoma?" They pretend to be having no luck looking for earlier flights, so Marie presses, "You lying to me? I have the Express Pass." Which, in her world, makes her the boss of everyone. I'm surprised she doesn't bust out her headlamp and shine it into their eyes. Instead, she lets them off the hook, but now Danny is nervous about having lied to Marie, and is irritated about being put in this position. Jamal must have seen this from somewhere off-camera, because he catches up with the others and says, "Hey, you know the Oklahoma boys are gonna crack." Indeed, Danny has correctly figured out that the Afghanimals only want them along as cannon fodder for them and the blondes to beat, so they decide to get their own damn flight on their own damn initiative. On the bright side, Danny is no longer puzzling over whom to U-Turn if they get a chance later, because the Afghanimals' sneaky little stunt has just made it a no-brainer.
Nicky & Kim arrive at the travel agency and, working with the same agent who accidentally screwed Chester & Ephraim earlier (and who may yet do so again), they quickly get tickets to Lisbon on that flight through São Paolo that lands at noon and seems to be so popular with the kids these days.
Like the big boys they are, Tim & Danny manage to get themselves on a flight that will get them to Lisbon at 10:00 AM, transferring in Madrid. That beats noon via São Paolo any day.
Chester & Ephraim board their flight, and Ephraim tells the camera how great it is that they get to split from the pack and arrive at 7:00 AM in Lisbon after all. Well, theoretically. The onscreen graphic reading "Flight 1 of 3 to LISBON" seems to have its doubts, but the first plane is in the air and it's Team NFL's.
Cut to Brandon & Adam doing a happy-hoedown dance in the airport, because Team NFL's travel agent contacted them somehow and got them seats on that same flight through Madrid that lands in Lisbon at 10 AM. They're on the second plane that takes off from Santiago, along with the Okies.
