Ron and Kelly hop in a taxi and take off. Uchenna restlessly waits for Joyce, and then we cut back to her, out on the street, the last of the Doorgate people not to be finished. Susan is also getting polish on her customer's socks, but he pays her anyway, so she's done. Next to finish is Gretchen, so good for her. Well, "good" if you like your socks with polish on them. I'm betting that's covered on Day One in shoeshine school, though. Right after "Managing Your Fetish: Don't Take Your Work Home With You." "I need to polish some shoes!" Joyce calls out in frustration. Aww.
Commercials. Wow. It never would have occurred to me to use film noir to sell nasal spray, but that's why I'm not in a creative field like pharmaceutical advertising. Can you even hear me when I'm this far inside the box?
We return to Joyce, still on the street. She finds another person and completes her second shoeshine. Uchenna, meanwhile, talks to Deana about how they can "will" their partners to return, and he says he's sure Joyce will be next. But of course, actually, Ray is next, alongside Amber, and both of these teams learn that they, too, are on the first flight to Santiago. Next to return are Susan and Gretchen, and both of those teams also land on the first flight. Teams pile into cabs for the airport. Rob and Amber share a smooch in their cab as he says, "Good job." Meredith congratulates Gretchen, Patrick congratulates his mom...it's all happy times. And Patrick has a bandage on his head all of a sudden. I wonder if he conked his swelled head into a doorjamb.
Megan completes the task, and then Joyce does the same, and then Debbie, who feels the need to kiss everyone, because that's the kind of person she is, and oh, please, camera, look at Debbie, because she is being so charming and clever and wacky right this minute! And then whichever brother it is finishes up by creating a little freak show in the middle of a bunch of pedestrians. After all, in every country in the world, people can't resist stopping to gawk at a freak show. Interestingly, this is why promoting American Idol is easy, and why filming Cops is hard. Oh, hey, look -- it's Brian, because there's his name on the screen! Okay, Brian. Brian polishes shoes "American-style" and such. Lynn finishes his fourth shine, so he and Brian are tied for, like, most pitiful performance in shoeshining.
Megan and Joyce return to their partners, and they learn they're on the second flight to Santiago. Debbie comes back next, so Greg notes that only he and Alex are left waiting for their respective partners to return. Brian finishes, and as he walks purposefully back to the union, he tells the camera that you have to be entertaining. "They don't want a shoeshine," he says, "they want to be treated well." Well, and they want to be on TV, I think, but so does everyone else. Like Debbie! But this isn't about her right now, which I'm sure she bitterly resents. Lynn finishes, hugs and kisses his victim, and heads back. Both teams get done at the same time, with the only difference in their fates being that the brothers apparently believe that the clue is sending them to "San Diego, Chile." Sigh. I hear it's got a great zoo.
