Zach and Flo assess the basket bikes. "What am I supposed to do?" she asks incredulously. "Hop on a bike, and let's roll," he says. "I'm not driving this!" she whines. "I'm not driving it, I'll just push it." She quickly discerns that she can't even push it, because it's too heavy. He encourages her to at least try, and to start by putting on the helmet. I suppose that's a good thing, because comedy is always enhanced by the presence of a helmet, and this whole thing is quickly degenerating into something quite grimly entertaining. She pushes it a few feet with Zach holding it for her, but as soon as he lets go, it tips over again. "There's not a chance in hell I can push this!" she yells. "Zach, I can't push it!"
This was the part where I wanted him to yell at her. It's funny, because I've pretty much agreed with his strategy up to this point, which was to coddle her and reassure her and not really tell her how awful she was being. Right here, though, I have to say it might have been wise to just tell her to shut the hell up, because she was going to do one or the other of the options, so she could choose between the bikes and the boats, and he didn't want to hear any more whining. Well, at least it would have been interesting.
Ian and Teri now pass FloZach coming the other way, and Ian gives a cheerful "Beep-beep!" on the way by. "Fuck you, Ian," Flo mutters. She pushes the bike for a little bit, while Zach boards his and tries to pedal, but she immediately steers hers into the wall. She screams for a bit. "This is an impossibility," she says.
Elsewhere, Ian and Teri review the clue again and grab a cab. As they sit in the cab, Teri, who is covered in dirt and sweat, snarls, "Well, that was fun." Hee.
Zach tells Flo that they can go back to the boats, or she can make a run at the bike. "Zach, do you understand how much I weigh? This is so heeeeavyyyy-uh." She is near tears. Again. When she tries to turn the bike and fails, she snarls at him, "Do you want me to get hurt? Do you want me to get hurt?" Oh, my GOD, is that a trick question? I have a feeling that's why Zach chuckles a little bit. Zach tells her that the boats were merely hard, whereas the bikes are really most sincerely hard, so he's thinking maybe sucking it up and going back to the boats would be the way to go. As they leave to get on the boats, she -- wait for it -- throws her helmet. Again. Oh, and Zach is carrying her backpack, too. "I want out," she says. "Out. I'm finished. I'm finished with this!" she wails. (FDD7.) She cries and whimpers as they walk along. "You want to go back to the boats?" Zach says evenly. "I want to go ho-o-ome," she sobs. (FDD8.)
