The Gaghans discover that Carissa's legs are not long enough to reach the pedals. Whoops.
Here come the Paolos. I'm sort of hoping that when they get to the party bikes, they'll discover a hidden feature that doesn't allow the bike to move forward while people are bitching.
On the Gaghan bike, Carissa says, "I wish I had longer legs." "We wish you had longer legs, too!" her mom agrees, not unkindly. They finish, and as they run off with their clue, Tammy comments, "Ooh, now my legs are sore." "My legs are not that sore," Carissa puts in, which...hee. She's so gloriously nine years old in this lovely way. ["I kind of wanted Billy to flick her in the head right there." -- Sars] They notice as they approach the car that there's some lightning coming, so they'd like to get going as quickly as possible. The Paolos are last to start, but they do get going on the bike at last. I don't know if I'd be out riding around on a metal bike with no protection at all when there was that much lightning going around.
Out on the road to Hattiesburg, the Bransens realize that the Linzes have caught up to them. As the Linzes pass, one of the Tonyas says, "Let's moon 'em." Despite the fact that their father is in the car, one of the Tonyas does indeed yank down her shorts and stick her ass out the window as the Linzes are passing. Then Nick rolls down his window, sticks his chest out the window, and pulls up his shirt. Then he points back at the Tonyas and says, "Now it's your turn." Oh, that Nick. What a mischievous day he's having. Something about this entire exchange taking place in front of their dad squicks me out, but...to each her ass's own, I suppose.
Against a backdrop of increasingly threatening lightning, the Paolos make their way around the track. Something sure does seem oddly appropriate about them spotlighted against an outbreak of weather that makes the entire thing look like it's the End of Days. They take off for their car, impressed with the imposing nature of the climate.
