Train station. Jill and John Vito buy their train tickets, and are told that they have about three minutes to catch the next train. They run for the track.
Asshat, dismayed to return to the vault and find that three safes are already open. Ha!
Gerard, correctly counting the fifty trees.
11:33 AM. Jill and John Vito, running for the train.
Ken and Gerard, returning to the vault to find Ian and Teri already there. Actually, this makes Gerard cackle again.
11:34 AM. Jill and John Vito, running for the train. Upstairs, Drew hopes they don't catch it.
As Gerard punches the code into the safe, he asks Ken to cover the numbers with his hand so Asshat doesn't cheat off them. The numbers Gerard punches in are correct. As they grab their clue and start to leave, Teri turns to Kenny and asks what the last number (the number of trees) is. Is she out of her mind? This is the hard part of the Detour! Why is anyone going to tell you? Why doesn't she just ask them to give her some of their money? "I'm sorry, honey," Ken says, and leaves. Teri tilts her head, as if in disbelief, and makes a face. Man, that was so ridiculous. "I'm like, 'Sorry, kisses, love you...bye!'" Kenny interviews. Hee. Teri has perhaps the most seriously screwy sense of entitlement I've ever seen on this show.
11:35 AM. Jill and John Vito miss the train by probably about thirty seconds. That's gotta hurt. "We were right here!" Jill says to JV in frustration. Dang. She notes that had they made that train, they would have been an hour ahead. Did someone say something about a transportation curse?
Commercials. There's something cosmically appropriate about Wayne Newton shilling for Target.
John Vito reiterates that missing that train was rather a sucky development. Elsewhere in the station, Nerd Lust prepares for their 12:35 departure. Drew voices over about how helpful the Nerd Lust alliance is at this point. He comments on how alliances shift quite a bit, depending on what's "convenient." It's almost as if they're mutually opportunistic and transitory, not that anyone would have ever noted that before.
Asshat heads out of the vault to count the trees again. As he and Kenny walk to the train station, Gerard explains that Asshat is stuck in last place, "in a bad way." They're getting out of it, though, as they split the counting and come up with fifty at last. As Gerard and Kenny continue to stroll, Gerard manages to wander right onto the tracks, and comes uncomfortably close to being smacked by a cable car, until Ken reaches over, grabs his arm, and pulls him back. If you look carefully at where Gerard was walking, he really did come close to getting bumped, no joke. "Kenny, I owe you my life," Gerard teases, but...he sort of does. That was not a good situation.
