Jason & Amy's cab drops them off at the factory and Jason tells the driver, "Go pick our friends up." Wow, so maybe there really is only one cab on duty right now. The Ice-Ghanimals come running up moments later. Back in town, Nicole & Travis hop into the cab that just came back for them. Tim & Danny get into another one, so it looks like the city's taxi fleet is twice as large as I suspected. Nicky & Kim are left behind, again, and Travis says that doing this on foot would have left them tired for the rest of the leg. But that's what Nicky & Kim are going to have to do. This is not a spoiler, but goodbye, Nicky & Kim.
Soon most of the teams are on the factory floor, busily bundling heads in units of ten (or eight), and looking far too alike in their identical coveralls. Jason points out to Marie that the pro working alongside everyone -- who wasn't really noticeable until now -- has ten heads per bundle as opposed to Tim & Marie's eight, and Marie realizes her mistake. Which I am sure is a much quieter process than if she were realizing Tim's mistake. She interviews that Jason & Amy know they have the Express Pass. "I don't really care what their motivation is for wanting to help me as long as they help me," she adds, showing off those people skills for which she's become so famous. Meanwhile, Amy is busying herself by being Little Miss Helpful, lining up the fish heads for Jason and giving tips to Nicole & Travis, because while these jobs may not be strictly necessary, she no doubt prefers them to taking a turn at impaling fish heads on a giant needle herself. Brandon & Adam seem to be doing well, while the Afghanimals are struggling a bit and the blondes are just grossed out, especially when Ashley finds herself holding a smaller fish head. "It's like a child!" she says tossing it aside, while Ally smacks fish heads down onto the needle like they owe her money.
Nicky & Kim finally reach the fish factory on foot and head uphill to the hammer task. Tim & Danny have only now reached the giant drying racks, where the odor of the drying cod is…noticeable. I can't believe the whole town doesn't go through summer smelling like the dumpster behind Long John Silver's, to be honest. Danny is going to have to put on a climbing harness to climb to the very top of the rack to retrieve their fish. So it's less gross, but it's going to take a while. Your classic tortoise/disgusting hare choice.
