Commercials. Eat at McDonalds and go to Walt Disney World. We in America prefer to be well-entertained and swimming in cheeseburgers. It's how we stay strong.
Claire, doing all the work as always, determines that they can go over to another British Airways terminal and continue trying to get to Cape Town.
Meanwhile, Blake and Paige make the ferry. Just as a side note, they look like they're still wearing the clothes from the pit stop, unlike most of the other teams, who have now changed clothes -- in most cases, they've changed twice already. I think this is actually the third day of this leg, because the Sao Paolo-London flight was overnight, and it appears that the London-Cape Town flight was, too. So...yuck, Blake and Paige. If someone had to keep the same clothes on, did it have to mean the continuation of Blake's Dead No-ets Society get-up? In other news, it looks like they pass the Xerox/Mary-and-Fruit boat going the other direction while they're on the way to the island.
Speaking of which, Mary and the Fruit de-boat and go for a taxi. Xerox, continuing their vaguely Esquire-ish ways, allow a local guy to talk them into taking the train to Kalk Bay Harbor. Nooooooo! Not the train! Sigh.
ChaTaGaDa pulls up in their Group Cab to the harbor, where a bunch of dancers are doing a joyful boogie on the sidewalk for change. Someone remarks that it's the Village People, which, aside from the hardhats, it isn't really at all. This week's Detour is "Dance or Deliver." Their choices are to dance with the troupe and then pass the hat and ask for money (they need to earn about $2.50 in tips), or to move 275 pounds of fish from a boat to a couple of big scales. Damn -- I'm a terrible dancer, but I still know what I'd pick. Wil initially wants to do the fish. Danny and Oswald? Not so much. Danny says, "We don’t want to carry fish, baby." Oswald agrees. In an interview, he points out that fish-carrying, in addition to being hard work, makes you smell like fish. So...no. Furthermore, they have to earn practically nothing dancing. Tara notices this, too, and she and Wil go for the dance, as do Gary and Dave.
Happy dancing sequence. Tara seems to take to it the most naturally. Wil? No. Dave? Eh. In an interview, Oswald officially delivers the First Belly Laugh Of TAR2: "I loved the dancing. I felt like I was doing the Irish Riverdance on crack." Hee! Anyway, everybody dances, everybody begs, and everybody makes it pretty easily. I would also mention that the dancing outfits they made them wear (colorful jumpsuits and black boots, basically) are apparently very small, because the shoes don't fit anyone (Dave says he "can't feel his feet") and the clothes don't either. Most of the teams just let the outfits hang around their waists. They must have been expecting some very small people to show up for this part of the Race. Gary refers to the boots as "South African dominatrix shoes." Oh, all right. Snerk.
