Uchenna and Joyce find the scales guy, get their scale, and start weighing folks. They start to make notes, and my favorite part is where Uchenna says to one guy, "No, no, keep your coat on!" Heh. He's like a backwards Weight Watchers meeting. "Keep your bracelet on! Don't take off your belt! No, don't spit out your gum!"
At Galata Kulesi, Gretchen and Meredith decide that they have go to the top of the tower to get the clue. That screwy oompah music that I still think has very little to do with Turkey starts up as they take the elevator to the top and start looking for a clue box. They don't find one, unsurprisingly. "Man, this is hard," Meredith complains. Finally, they note that it might be downstairs, and they head back down.
Uchenna and Joyce finish up the weighing at last, and they receive a clue telling them to go ten miles to a fortress called Rumeli Hisari, where they'll get another clue. They grab a cab and take off.
Back at the tower, Meredith and Gretchen still don't see a clue, so they head back inside the tower yet again to look for it. "Why do we have so much trouble with things like this?" Gretchen wonders. Because you're...not great at this game and get really lucky a lot? Just a guess. Meredith lifts up a big dome that I'm not sure tourists are meant to lift up, wondering if the clue is under it. I was sort of afraid there would be sacred remains under there, or a security camera. Or a really, really big dinner. When he doesn't find a clue, they take the elevator to the top. Again. "Why don't we see things," she whines. At the top, she whines some more, and then they look down and see that the clue box is down on the ground, by the entrance. "What a waste of time," she complains. Finally, they open the Detour clue and head for the Kilos. I think people are picking the Kilos because they cannot figure out what the Columns are. That's what I would do.
Rob and Amber find the ferry to Kiz Kulesi and get on board. Meanwhile, Ron and Kelly's train arrives. On the ferry, Rob gets some bad news when he asks how many teams have already come over on the ferry -- the guy tells him there have been two, and they went through at 8:00 that morning. "Damn," Rob says. "They got a 6:00 AM flight somehow." Wow, an earlier flight? Just like your friend Kelly heard them say they had? How could you have anticipated that wacky possibility? Oy. Amber comments on the fact that they wrongly believed that they were in the lead the whole time. "Unbelievable," Rob adds. He would.
