Over And Over, They'll Be A Fool For You
We see a bit more of Rebecca's attempt to broach with El Hornio the topic of their ailing relationship. I actually think the most awesome part is right at the beginning, when she rattles off the list of roles she's asked to play -- mother, girlfriend, friend -- and El Hornio claims she has to be "all of those." So, yeah, that includes "mom." So, you know, it's just..."Here, honey! Have some milk and cookies! And, would you like lick my ear?" It's not like she's a lot better, either. I mean, I'm with her when she says she wants her relationship to be with someone who doesn't yell at her, but did she have to throw in "takes care of me"? Because she kind of doesn't look like she needs it, so it almost looks like the helpless act, and there's nothing stupider than the helpless act. As they sit on the pavement later, El Hornio says, "You're making me look like the biggest asshole [I think; the word is actually silenced, and I'm really just gambling] in the country." "You're doing a good job of that by yourself," Rebecca says sadly. I'd buy that a lot more if she were a nicer person.
We are treated to even more falling-down footage from the roller-skiers at the Viking Detour. (Did you know Vikings were heavily into roller-skiing?) It's actually hard to believe there's this much more film of people racking themselves than they initially showed, but it's true.
Old news: Don and MJ take off with Hornio's car. How will it end? HOW?
Commercials: I will love Dennis Quaid until the day I die, no matter how weird it is. Have you seen The Big Easy, people? It's a really good story. It has nothing to do with the part where he's all, "That? Or that?," which I am not even thinking about, let alone thinking about and turning red.
In one of the best pieces of new stuff in the entire episode, we watch as Lena and Kristy approach the pit stop in Norway, and Kristy says that they need to get out the makeup. "I am not going to have nude lips when I see Phil," she says flatly. Kristy goes on to say, "We're putting lippy on [hee] because Phil," she says, dragging out the word "Phil" just a tad, "is a Choo-Choo Charlie and a class act." And mad props to the Eagle-Eyed Forum Poster who nabbed that as a Saturday Night Live Molly Shannon reference, which is not surprising, once you think about it. Of course, they cut directly from this to a nice shot of Phil smiling. And you know, Phil really is a Choo-Choo Charlie and a class act. I'd put lippy on, too. In fact, wait -- I do.
