Ray and Yolanda drop off their swordfish and get their Siracusa clue. They get directions and leave town. Dave and Lori exchange a few more "I love you" platitudes along the way, the better to forget about the giant fish and whatnot, and then they drop off their fish and take the Siracusa clue. They buy a map and leave.
Eric calls Jeremy a pansy, and that causes Jeremy to score. Story of their lives, no? They get their clue just as BJ and Tyler are approaching. Phil explains that the clue says that they have to travel on foot through the streets to the pit stop, which is at a natural spring apparently important in Greek mythology. Not as important as scoring, of course. Nothing is up there with scoring.
BJ takes the Roadblock for his team. The players hand over the ball to him, and he lobs it, and they get their clue. This is not interesting. This is C-SPAN-company-picnic levels of "not interesting."
Now, the entire Choad Family is running for the pit stop.
Fran and Barry and Joseph and Monica are on their way to the Roadblock clue. Joseph and Barry take the task for their teams. Despite how incredibly easy the task is, Barry is immediately in trouble, and Fran starts talking to Monica about how bad he is at it. His first shot is, to put it kindly, an airball.
Choad Family. Asking directions, running, running, running. And then we are at the pit stop, where a large band is playing energetic, upbeat music and Phil is waiting. Eric and Jeremy run up to the mat first. They call him "Big Philly Style" again. Welcome, you are team number one. You have won a cruise for two! And they will enjoy it, I think. Phil tells them that they smell bad, and Jeremy says their new cologne is called "Sword." Not that I'm surprised they'd want their cologne to cry out "Hey, Pointy!", but it's still depressing every time they do that.
Here come BJ and Tyler, dancing and demonstrating, because they can't not. They shtick their way onto the mat at last, where Phil tells them they are team number two. There is mercilessly little of what I'm sure was a long routine about coming in second, just as everything is a long routine.
Joseph gets his polo shot to go, so they can leave. Fran is kibitzing Barry, calling his effort "pathetic." I would have worshipped him forever if he had turned around at that moment and said, "Oh, go spot an engine." Although I guess he can't, if he didn't know where the engine was, either. As MoJo leaves, Fran yells at Barry until he finally gets the shot done. Lake and Michelle, meanwhile, are arriving. When they read the Roadblock, she really isn't sure she can do it, but they're facing his having done the first four, so she really has to start doing some, to say the least, or they're going to be in big trouble very quickly. She finally agrees to do the kayak. For whatever reason, Lake and Michelle are spending this portion of the show wearing these weird harnesses made of string that I…do not know the purpose of at all. They're kind of doing a lifting-and-separating thing on both parties, but it's not a good situation. Once Michelle gets into the water, she finds herself a bit confused early on, and her first shots are not good. She really does throw like a girl, in the way in which that pejorative does have its place and time. "You got to throw it now, come on!" he harangues, saying that he should have been the one to do the task. Boooo! Can't do that, dude. Take it or don't, you know?
