Nerd Lust and JVJ arrive back at the vault, where the Bald Snark is still counting. In an interview, Zach talks with great amusement about the large number of stacks of coins with which the brothers were wrangling. Yeah, mock away, Zach, and get back to me when you can get from one to six without any mistakes. Back at the vault, Gerard sees the teams returning and panics. "I think we should go; I think we should abort," he says. Ack! "We should abort, we should abort, we should abort," he repeats. They pack up their stuff, afraid of falling behind the Numbers-Runners. They're unaware, for one thing, that this task was as tricky as it was, and that Run The Numbers might require you to go out looking more than once. In any event, they bail on the counting. In the same Alpalicious interview that has spawned much of their recent hilarity, Kenny mocks Gerard's ultra-serious barks of "Abort! Abort!" "Like we're some kind of space shuttle or something," he comments. They take to the streets to Run The Numbers. I'm telling you, they are going to get seriously burned by this task-switching if they keep doing it.
Nerd Lust tries out the combination with which they've returned, and they find that it's wrong. You'll recall that they have the number of trees wrong. In the park, Jill and John Vito peg the number of trees at forty-nine, and she's still got the clock numbers wrong as well. They run in to try the vault and find that Nerd Lust is still there, wondering what to do.
Meanwhile, Asshat continues looking for the statue.
Nerd Lust narrows their problem down to tree-counting, and dashes out again to look. JVJ sees that their combination doesn't work either, and they, too, suspect that they have the trees wrong. Jill looks up at JV anxiously, but he just says they need to turn around and go back to the trees. "We'll write it down," he says evenly as they jog back toward the park. "We'll break it up into sections." It's really funny, but I get the feeling they function just about exactly the opposite way from what the relevant stereotypes would tend to suggest -- she gets overwound and jumpy, and he keeps his cool so she doesn't fly off into space. Whatever they're doing, it seems to work very well for them. Nerd Lust counts trees. JVJ counts trees. As Jill scribbles tree notes, she mutters to herself, "Seventy-eight on the clock numbers...I did that totally wrong." Hee. Jill and John Vito run back to the vault, and they are the first to get the combination right. We don't see anyone in there with them, but it seems like there might be someone, because John Vito stops her from saying out loud what the combination was. Hmm. They collect their clue. It tells them to take a train to Grindelwald, where they'll look for a route marker in a field. For some reason, the clue box is among several giant baskets of apples. Pie! Pie! Pie! (Sorry. Thanksgiving dinner is still happily rattling around in my stomach.)
