At the airport, Peter and Sarah get their tickets on the first flight. Dustin and Kandice and David and Mary follow, and after checking on the Korean Air flight and confirming that it lands later, these lead teams get their tickets on United.
And now, we see in a montage that some of the teams are being confused by the fact that they're to return the cars to a Thrifty off-site parking lot, and they instead take the entrance for the Thrifty Rental Car Return, which is different. Bilal and Sa'eed make this mistake, as do Kellie and Jamie, so both wind up driving around the parking garages. Vipul and Arti and Lyn and Karlyn do not have this problem. Eventually, the teams that got it wrong get redirected by a nice garage attendant, but they're not happy about the time they lost. Oh, and the Pointies and the *wins? Also using the wrong exit. Delightfully, Pointy Rob treats Pointy Kim like she's a total moron for not knowing that if it's Thrifty parking, you obviously use Rental Car Return. Enjoy watching this one on television, nitwit, and enjoy your championship in the Olympic sport of eating your own 'tude. The Pointies get into the garage, get turned around, and are already fighting. Tom and Terry, almost forgotten as they will be for most of the episode, make it to Thrifty and get on the shuttle, as Rob sweats whether they're even going to get on either flight at this rate. That would be an interesting opening, wouldn't it? Half the teams getting to neither of the spoon-fed flights? I wonder what would happen.
When we come back, the misdirected Rental Car Return Wanderers are being sent to the correct lot, while inside, Tyler and James, Duke and Lauren, and Lyn and Karlyn are lined up for tickets on United. Vipul and Arti line up behind that group, and they are soon joined by Kellie and Jamie. When the cheerleaders introduce themselves, Vipul introduces himself as "Vipul... of the People." Ha! I don't even entirely know what that means, but it's delightfully silly in a way that's not over-the-top, and controlled silliness goes a long way on this show. Kellie and Jamie are very amused. As expected, Lyn and Karlyn nail down the last seats on the United flight, and as they're doing that, Kellie and Jamie meet up with Duke and Lauren. "What's y'all's relationship? Are y'all brother and sister, or dating, or what?" "This is my dad," Lauren says. Jamie and Kellie laugh, and Duke adds, "I've been trying to ask her out for years!" It's completely creepy, officially, but it's already so awkward to be mistaken for your daughter's boyfriend -- for a couple of reasons -- that he didn't have a lot of attractive options there.
