Margie and Luke reach the palace and find Gate 5, also marked with an Amazing Flag. As they run onto the grounds, Luke says, "Mom, let's drop our bags now." They ditch their packs on the grass, and run the rest of the way to where Phil is waiting next to a guy in a white tunic with a green parrot on his shoulder. "I'm not going to faint today," Margie says. "Hellaaw!" the parrot caws, and the local tells them, "Welcome to Bangkok, Thailand." Two greeters -- awesome. Phil signs/says that they are team number one, and as they jump up and down and hug, he adds, "Congratulations," with his hands clasped together in front of his face. Looks like someone learned a new sign. You suppose he also learned "Your mother is dying of heatstroke," just in case? He tells them that they've won a "sensational" trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico. I hope the cheesy accent he said "Puerto Rico" in wasn't for Luke's benefit. Phil says that Margie looks a lot better than yesterday. Well, for one thing, she's vertical.
Kisha and Jen are the first to finish the karaoke Detour, and as they get their clue sending them to the Pit Stop, their subtitle reading "Currently in 2nd Place" is a cruel irony. Good thing they can't actually read them like on The Electric Company.They run off to find the taxi that was supposed to follow them, but it's not around. "That's fine with me, I ain't gotta pay him," Jen says as they give up the brief search. Rather than going back for their stuff, Kisha wants to go straight to the Pit Stop. They jump into a yellow cab and ask the driver to take them somewhere without money. When he says no, they hop right back out again. "'Kay, goodbye," Jen says rather shortly, and they start hoofing it again. I think it's somehow perversely admirable that the member of their team who is willing to put off getting their stuff is the one who's having to walk around Bangkok barefoot.
The Cheerleaders finish in third, and ask the first cabbie they see about the Thai Palace, only to learn that he doesn't know it. On to the next cab. As Tammy and Victor reach the end of their karaoke course, Tammy says, "Aaaand I just saw Kisha and Jennifer running barefoot down the street." They get their clue and run for a taxi -- literally, Tammy runs up to one that's still moving. "Good job, Tammy," Victor says. Yes, good job not getting killed. Team Go Team sees them go, and Jaime decides she and Cara should just jump in the next cab they see and follow them. Victor comments on how surprised he is that they caught up with the cheerleaders, who left the Road Block much earlier. Don't tell that to Jaime, or she'll go back and twist their previous cab driver's head off. When she's done with her current one, that is. "We have the meekest driver on the planet Earth right now," she bitches. Wisely, Cara just consults their map.
