Other teams work away on their Fuel and Fowl Detours, and then we return to Tom and Terry, who will have to stand off the mat and wait half an hour as other teams check in. Oooh, yikes. "It's over," Terry despairs. Now, none of that.
Commercials. What am I more sick of than regular Peyton Manning? Fake-moustache Peyton Manning.
We return to watch Duke and Lauren really working quite well together at constructing their birdcage. He's urging her to keep a positive attitude, and she's having that "Thanks, Dad" moment where you try not to hit him. Dave and Mary are almost done with the bricks, and James and Tyler are even closer. James and Tyler leave in third place, while Dave and Mary and Dustin and Kandice each have a couple of bricks left. Rob is concerned about finding the energy to finish. Peter and Sarah are surprisingly close, as well. See? Peter is a machine. In lots of ways. Dave and Mary get out first among these teams, so they're in fourth place as they leave for the pit stop. Dustin and Kandice leave in fifth. But as these teams leave, we see Dave and Mary's fanny pack sitting on the ground. Rob and Kimberly finish the coal and leave in sixth place. Peter and Sarah finish and leave in seventh, to the disbelief of the *lyns, who aren't done yet and got there earlier. I think they're going to turn into the Boris and Natasha, and Peter and Sarah are the... well, the moose and the squirrel with the prosthetic leg.
Dave and Mary are a little ways down the street toward the pit stop when they realize they don't have the fanny pack, so Dave tells ankled Mary to wait, and he runs back for it.
Welcome, Tyler and James. You are team number two.
Duke and Lauren work on their birdcage. Dave returns and grabs the fanny pack. The *lyns get their bricks done and leave. Peter and Sarah are moving, and Peter says something to Mary about whether they've "got everything," and I can't tell whether that's supposed to be polite or whether it's disgustingly assy, but I think he was trying to be nice, in his way. Peter does tell Sarah that they can outrun Dave and Mary. Duke and Lauren are almost finished with their birdcage. Rob and Kimberly and Dustin and Kandice are heading across the rice paddy toward Phil, and it's the Pointies who get there first. Welcome, you're team number three. And the BQs are team number four.
