Hotel. Esquire de-cabs, and Rob waves at Danza, which is de-cabbing at the same time. "Hey, guys," he says. Frank, however, is doing the Episode Four mambo, in which he hates the lawyers and thinks they're being crafty and phony. (Remember leaving Le Baux?) He doesn't answer. "They got their game faces on, they don't want to talk to us," Rob says. He and Brennan note that their "friendly greetings" aren't being all that well-received. Over footage of the teams entering their rooms, Phil, Master of Ceremonies As Well As Of The Obvious, says, "Because the park does not open until 6:00 AM, teams checked into a hotel." Yeah, thanks, Phil. Where would I be without you? Go cash your check. He goes on to give us the scoop that in the park, teams will have a map with an X, and they have to go to that spot and find their way to a kite with a clue tied to it, which will be one of three clue-kites. Is it just me, or are some of the things they have to do getting a little bit lame here at the end of the race? I mean, just pulling a kite out of the sky? What is that? That's just sort of bullying. What's next? "At the east entrance to the zoo, a small child is playing with a teddy bear. Walk up and take it away from her, and rip its head off. The clue is inside, just behind the right eye."
At 4:45 AM, Esquire's cab shows up at the hotel to pick them up. (Mmmm, four hours of sleep, refreshing! Now you're ready to face the day!) As it pulls up to the curb, one of them says, "That's what you call service." Yeah, but what are the chances it's going to last? I mean, Untipped Cabbie is still mad at you guys. Rob also says "it's time to get the last couple legs on." I feel like there's a naughty joke there, but I'm missing it. Danza's cab comes at 5:15, and they discuss the multiple entrances to the park and the difficulties of finding the right one. Esquire, meanwhile, is walking by the park and finds a gate they like. "Let's just hang out here by the corner, so we're kinda out of sight for now," Brennan says. "I agree," says Rob, The Other Half Of The Fully-Fused Esquire Brain. Danza gets a guy to let them in a couple of minutes early. We see Esquire come in the gate, and man, it's been a few episodes since this came up, but they really do run like geeks sometimes. It's the packs, I think. Or else they're geeks. Danza finds its way to the kites right away and stands in wait, anticipating the moment when the gentleman kite-flyer will put it in the air. (Do they have to wait till it's in the air? Did the clue say that?) "Come on, come on, let it go, Grandpa," Loud Pushy Frank says to himself as he watches. Eventually, Grandpa does. As they run toward the airborne kite, Danza ponders exactly what it is that they're supposed to do. "You gotta take the kite?" Frank wonders, while also sort of running like a geek. They get to the clue and grab it, and it tells them to go to Juyong Pass on the Great Wall of China. Phil repeats the info. "Teams may only travel by public bus," he adds ominously. It is undoubtedly part of Phil's charm that he speaks phrases like "public bus" with just the same level of growling intensity with which he would speak phrases like "hungry tigers" or "flesh-eating bacteria."
