Cut to the boys on the train to Flushing Meadows. They're getting help from the folks on the train regarding where to get off the train and which side the exit will be on.
Margarita, back at the station, says, "I know if we get that train and they're not on it, we are so golden...'cause the next train won't come for another fifteen, twenty minutes, which gives us more than enough time to find our way there." She can't stop smiling.
Boys on the train. Rob, flashing The Non-Smiling Dimple Of Agonizing Stress.
Danza at the station. They anxiously look for the train.
Boys on the train. Rob voice-over: "The competitor in me wants dearly to win. I mean, just wants dearly to win and can't stomach the thought of losing to somebody else. I think if I stand on that winner's mat, I don't think it's going to be the money that's running through my head, it's going to be just this sense of unbelievable accomplishment and pride in what I did, and what I did with my teammate together." On the train, Brennan says to Rob, "Nothing you can do, you just sit here and wait." Rob: "We're either ahead or we're behind." Brennan: "I know. I know." Rob: "They're not on this train." Interestingly, I think that while Danza is ecstatic at not being on the same train as Esquire, it's making Rob nervous not to see Danza. Remember when he walked along the train in India, talking about how you sort of want to see the other teams, but you don't want to see them? He may think he and Brennan can pull out a close race at the end, so he might have almost preferred to see Danza at this point, lest he have to wonder whether he's a train behind them rather than a train ahead of them.
Loud Pushy Frank, back at the station, grinning. Worries? He has none.
"Three more stops," Brennan says. He holds out his fist. "Well, we ran a good race. We'll see what happens when we get there." They knock fists. "Whatever happens, baby, whatever happens, keep your eye on the ball," Rob says.
