The clowns are headed into the subway as Al voices over that the long taxi ride did nothing for their morale. ClownJon revisits The Great Train Speech of 2001 by talking about how unsettling it is not to see any other teams doing what you're doing, because you can't tell if you're screwing up or not.
Kelly seems to think that Jon's negative attitude is impeding their progress. "Maybe if you'd light a little fire under your ass and get a little excited and a little stressed, we'd go faster." Jon points out the undeniable fact that while they're stuck in traffic, his attitude is unlikely to do very much. Kelly approaches the dangerous precipices of Mount Flo by saying that she's so tired of coming in last that she's "rather not come in than come in last." Noooo! Don't do that, Kelly. It's a short distance over that cliff and a long way back up.
Team Who hops out of their cab at a subway station. They get on the train.
Jon and Kelly's subway battle continues. "How do you know there's not a subway station right --" She points out the window. "'Cause what we gotta do is go across the bridge, then the bridge doesn't have traffic on it, Kel." Eh? That made no sense. Next thing you know, they're on the bridge, and indeed, it doesn't have traffic on it. He still did a really crappy job of explaining what he was talking about. She, as usual, is not happy about him turning out to be right about anything. "You know what? I hope you get eliminated just to prove a point. Just to prove that assholes never come in first. That's what I hope happens. And lucky me -- I'm engaged to the asshole." Ugh. They need a different way to fight, I think. She needs not to be so damn stubborn in the first place, and then he needs to not be such a relentless prick whenever he turns out to be right about anything, which hopefully will in turn keep her from being such a petulant baby. It's all about a positive version of the domino theory, you know.
You'll never guess what Team Who is doing. No, really. Guess. Okay, I'll tell you. They're getting lost. Lost! They manage to blunder onto the wrong subway line, at which point a nice gentleman on the train -- who is extremely well-dressed and quite a cutie-pie, as well as one of the better English-speakers they've encountered in a while -- tells them that they need to switch trains. "Dammit," they mutter. Well, it wouldn't be a complete episode if they didn't go the wrong direction at some point. When they get off the train, however, rather than switching to the other subway line, they grab another cab and ask the driver to take them to the subway station. Wow, my head hurts.
