Uchenna and Joyce get to the palace, and she puts on her scarf. They head inside and get the clue. Lynn and Alex are close behind. Lynn, as Uchenna apparently did, checks that it's okay that he's just wearing a ball cap, and he and Alex head in. Meredith and Gretchen arrive and do the same. Gretchen notes that there are quite a few poor people hanging around, and she wishes she had some money to give them. Give them the orange! Oh, that's right. Phil took her orange. That bastard! And he took the calculator. What will she give to the poor? Uchenna and Joyce run into the other two trailing teams (also known as the I Got My Flight Booked By Lynn And Alex Posse) on the way away from the clue box, and all greetings are friendly. Lynn and Alex and Meredith and Gretchen find the clue, and everyone's on the way. In their tonga, Alex tells Lynn, "I just hope Amber and Rob don't Yield us!" Eh. For all his talk, I don't think Rob cares enough to do it out of spite, and it would be a dumb time for it, strategically. But here's the Yield mat, in any event, and Phil takes this opportunity to explain how this is the second of three Yield opportunities, you can only use it once, blah dee blah.
At the Yield mat, the first to arrive are Ron and Kelly, with Rob and Amber right on their heels, to the point where the teams have a conversation about whether to use it. As Ron and Kelly stand on the mat, Rob says he thinks they shouldn't waste it on what may well be non-elimination, which is basically good advice, despite the fact that Rob is saying it in the ass-covering, and not the helpful, sense. Ron and Kelly do indeed pass up the opportunity to Yield, and then Rob interviews that if they'd been reversed, he'd probably have Yielded them. Which I hope isn't true, because that would be kind of dumb. I can't imagine what that would be likely to accomplish. "Luckily, they're not the brightest bulbs on the Christmas tree," he finishes. Friendship and mutual respect, people. Everybody's doing it. At any rate, both Rob and Amber and Ron and Kelly ultimately pass up their opportunities to use the Yield. The clue to which they default reveals a Roadblock, which Phil explains. The Roadblocker here has to search through about 600 tin boxes of all different sizes -- they're kind of like trunks, from large-shoebox size to large-suitcase size -- looking for a clue. And there are only ten that have clues in them, so it could be a while with the looking. The clue reads, "Who has a lot of patience?" Kelly immediately agrees to do it, and Ron rather awesomely says, "It's not you, really, but it has to be you for this." Hee. ["I'm telling you! Ron has potential! Okay, he probably compares putting ketchup on his fries to bombing Baghdad, but I can let that go. Free Ron!" -- Sars] Over at Rob and Amber, she reads the clue as follows: "Who has a lot of patience I have to do it." Hee hee. Know your strengths and weaknesses; that's the key, right?
