Jonathan and Victoria load up their Mercedes and go off in search of a cabbie to get directions from. As Victoria's out by the side of the road, doing just that, Jonathan spots Nuance's cab heading toward the Roadblock. "There's a team, Victoria!" he screams. "Move it!" From inside Nuance's cab, Kendra confirms that they did indeed just drive past Jonathan and Victoria. Victoria scampers around the parked cab and back into their car while Jonathan moans, "Maybe we could just do this. For once." Yeah, stupid Victoria, doing what he tells her to. "Shut the door," he orders as she's shutting the door.
Freddy does the Roadblock for Nuance. He too finishes in thirty-five seconds flat. Do the numbers on that clock change? Kendra appreciates the Mercedes, a "big step up." They talk about getting a map, but decide on a cab instead. Which means hiring one to lead them to the pit stop. I hope they plan to pay a fare, unlike the bowling moms from last season.
Hayden does the soabbox derby. "Like the wind!" Aaron sings to her as she and her boobs bounce up the hill. She finishes the course in 34.36 seconds. I guess those numbers do move. And she beat Jonathan's time, which makes me like her more.
Gus and Hera decide that she'll take the Roadblock, as Hayden and Aaron and Hayden run past them in the background. Jon and Kris arrive almost immediately, and Jon is right behind Hera on the run up the hill. "Coming down the mountain is a screamin' demon versus a little girl from California," Gus says. I bet the Amazing Editors love him. Hera's and Jon's racers are lined up side by side at the starting line. They're released simultaneously, and Gus and Kris watch them come down. They both finish in thirty-five seconds. Or the clock is frozen again. Kris berates Jon for his manifold shortcomings as a racer, as a lover, as a human being, and as a valid use for hair until her face turns blue and she collapses from hypoxia. She and Jon somehow get a razor-sharp lead heading out of the Roadblock. Gus spots them negotiating with a cab driver and asks if they can split the fare. Kris tells Gus to fuck off. No, she actually chirps, "Okay!"
Lori and Bolo get off the train and begin what looks like a long walk to the Roadblock. "We should have took a cab," Lori says. But what does Lori think they should have done differently?
El Hornio reads, "Who feels the need for speed?" "I dooo!" Rebecca cheers. She heads up the hill. "Good luck and don't kill yourself," El Hornio calls after her. She has a great time finishing in 34.79 seconds. They're in a really good mood for a team that's in sixth place. El Hornio offers to do the driving to the Pit Stop.
