Bill and Cathi are the next to leave, at 10:34 AM, so unless the bunny task took an hour and a half last week, it really wasn't necessary for Ernie and Cindy to U-Turn them at all. But now we're flashing back much further than that, to their first leg when they spent an entire afternoon lost in Taiwan looking for the second clue of the race and we all assumed they were done. And yet here they are in the top five, beginning the ninth leg in second place. I have to hand it to them, they're taking the "token" out of "token grandparents." Cathi says they don't like to think about that first leg, and they're still nervous every time they open a clue, but they've been able to keep it together better. As a demonstration of this, we see Bill sitting behind the wheel and musing thoughtfully about ice cream.
Andy and Tommy are of course leaving in third place, at 10:35 AM. That is, if Andy can get the clue envelope open. "Are you Copen-hangin in there?" Tommy asks Andy once they're back in their car. "Copin' and hangin'," Andy says. Jokes like this are the real reason Hamlet was always so depressed.
Cindy has already returned to Ernie at the HCA statue before any of the other teams have even shown up. They open the clue she got at the theater, which tells them to drive to Legoland. Phil says that's in Billund, Denmark, "the birthplace of Legos." Of course it is. We see lots of shots of big stuff made out of Legos as Phil says that they'll need to find the Pirate Carousel ride, which looks like one of those rides in the spinning teacup family, and there they'll get their next clue.
