Jaime and Cara come running down the path, onto the green, and onto the mat. Oh, there's Preston and Jennifer, not arguing. For now. Phil congratulates Team Go Team on being the second team to arrive. Phil asks Jaime, "Was it the pig, or what happened?" Amazingly, Jaime tries to blame herself alone, but Cara won't let her. "We finished the Amazing Race together, and that's what it's all about," Cara says. Jaime hugs her gratefully. In a post-leg interview, Cara calls it the most "wild, unexpected, and enriching experiences I'll probably ever have in my life." Jaime adds, "Second is not too shabby when you look at the competitors that we beat out around us." Indeed. That's better than I ever would have predicted. "Cara and I have a lot to be proud of." Meanwhile, Reynold the cab driver is probably out in the parking wondering how long he should wait before he knows they're not coming back to give him a bigger tip.
Luke and Margie are still in the cab, and Margie is telling him she's proud of him. "That experience was worth more than a million," she says. They hug and say I love you, and at last make it onto the mat, where Luke hugs the cheerleaders. Phil tells them they're team number three. "Surely now you will admit that your mother is the bionic woman," Phil says to Luke. Everyone else there agrees, and when Phil asks what makes Margie so special, he says, "A lot of deaf people's parents don't sign. I'm very lucky I have you." Margie is too choked up to translate simultaneously, but she manages to get the message out. You won't believe this, but there is more hugging.
