Ken and Tina are also glad to hear they're team number two. Ken interviews that they didn't like each other much at the beginning of the race, but it's gotten better. I'm right there with them on that.Starr continues to be a total stress-monkey in the back of he cab, to the point where Nick tells her, "Crying and freaking out's not going to help." Doesn't stop her from doing it. In fact she seems determined to prove otherwise. Dan and Andrew seem to be drawing close, and Starr's so impatient that she wants their driver to stop and let them out before they even get to the right gate, which Nick calmly vetoes. The driver seems disappointed not to be quit of her. They de-cab a minute later, with Nick's apologies to the driver.
The Frat Boys get out of their cab, but their driver isn't happy with how much Dan wants to pay him. Dan's trying to hold on to some of his cash, which he's stupidly waving around, while the driver Russianly expresses his frustration. By now, Starr is so wound up she's even arguing with Nick about the best way to walk into the park. Hey, Starr -- respect the fun garden.
The Frat Boys' cab driver has resorted to writing down figures for them on a piece of paper to demonstrate how much they owe him. "Is there anything we can, like, give him?" Andrew wonders. How about those fancy new shoes? By this time, Nick and Starr are walking through a gate. When we come back to the Frat Boys, Dan has adopted the negotiating tactic of sitting on the curb and moping while Andrew turns out his pockets. "Dude, just sit down," Dan mutters to him, like this is some kind of demonstration. You know, if Uchenna and Joyce had dealt with this problem like this, Season 7 would have ended quite differently.
Nick jumps up to peek over a high fence in the woods. "This isn't a library!" he yelps. When he's right, he's right.
Dan is indeed trying to give the driver his shoes, claiming he can sell them for a hundred dollars. To a guy who just watched him carry a ton and a quarter of flour in them, he says this. Dan takes them off and puts them on the street at the cabbie's feet. The cabbie just shakes his head and slides them back over to Dan with his foot. No language barrier in front of that gesture. While Nick and Starr continue searching for the library, Dan finally holds up all the money he has left. Luckily, this is when the driver has finished his cigarette, so it's a good time for him to snatch the cash and stomp back to his car, having been grievously underpaid for the better part of a day's work. Sucks to be him. Dan and Andrew head at last into the park.
