At 4:45 in the morning, the Frats get off the bus in Delhi. They're on their way to the airport. When they get there, Kevin becomes Flight Booking Wonder-Boy all over again. "Kevin was just totally amazing," Drew says admiringly. "When it comes to bookin' a flight, he is an absolute genius." I find this fascinating, of course, because I don't see the genius in booking flights, which is why I wouldn't be a flight-booking genius. I need Kevin to explain it to me. Preferably by taking me somewhere. Take me somewhere, Kevin -- I want to understand air travel.
Train, 5:20. Esquire and Danza pull into Delhi and look for cabs. Bus, 5:45. The Guidos and Momily get off the bus. You'll note that what was left of the train-missing differential of last week has been eaten by the train-versus-bus decision from Bikaner to Delhi, which is why the Frats are all alone out in front -- they came out on the plus side both times. Everybody is cabbing it to the airport, with the exception of those out-front Frats, who -- as stated above -- are already there. We get a series of random cab-shots, in which everyone looks very, very, VERY tired. Yes, more tired than usual. Yes, more tired than you're thinking if you didn't see the episode. They're TIRED.
Teams converge on the airport, and they compare notes on how the train/bus thing worked out. "We don't know where Drew and Kevin are," Brennan says. Cut to Drew and Kevin, happily resting on their plane. Kevin and Drew? Are out in the lead, is where they are.
Guido looks for an airline where somebody is actually there to talk to them. Momily gripes that the Guidos will probably outplay them again. Inside, the airport signs have birds sitting on them. Hmm. Indeed, the Guidos get a flight next, followed by Frank and Margarita. Despite Rob and Nancy's best efforts, it's taking them a little longer.
It's worth noting here, because you'll see it again, that practically everybody in this episode wears sleep masks, so the Guidos aren't alone in that particular habit. Other rather oddball habits, yes. But the masks themselves, no.
Momilesque doesn't manage a flight until 2:00 in the afternoon, several hours after everybody else. (Momilesque sounds sorta like a brothel, no? "Chateau Momilesque, Home of the Loveliest Honeys in Vegas"? Perhaps that's where the guy from the bus station thought Emily worked.)
On The Amazing World Map, The Amazing Yellow Line speeds from Delhi to Bangkok. When the teams get there, they have to get to the Temple of Dawn to pick up their next instructions. (Unless they're FF-ing, as will be explained in a moment.) The Frats get to the temple in the early evening, and they miss -- by only about forty minutes -- the chance to get in before it closes for the night and gain a big fat lead. Dang. Missed the Anti-Bunch. Drew asks one of the locals about a hotel, and when he finds that he's flustered the friendly fellow (yeah, yeah, alliteration, whatever), he tells the guy to relax. "This isn't the $64,000 Question, yet." They find the hotel. The Temple is closed until seven in the morning, so you guessed it -- it's Bunching Time. Here come Bill and Joe, here come Frank and Margarita, and then here comes Momilesque. Margarita wants a shower. No kidding -- everybody looks miserable, and a shower always helps.
