Gary and Dave and Boston, despite having been on different buses, run into each other while disembarking. Both teams get into tuk-tuks and head for the temple that's specified in the clue. And now, The Great Tuk-Tuk Horseplay Of 2002. A little ways behind Boston, Dave leans out and yells, "You guys! The rivalry begins!" Heh. Eventually, they wind up driving along next to each other. "Get! Away! From our taxi!" Gary yells. Dave leans out and tries to kick Boston, and Chris reaches out to try to grab Dave's feet. It's very funny, and it's very bunch-of-guys-on-a-trip, and they're all laughing. "That kid's on the crack pipe, man," Chris says when they've pulled ahead again, over a shot of Dave making quite an impressive "damn you, you dirty bastard" face and shaking his fist. They wind up parked together at a red light (or the Thailand equivalent). "Boston sucks!" Gary yells. "NYC!" Dave follows. "Shut up, Yankees suck!" yells Chris (and I am so in agreement with that that I could almost forgive everything else Chris has ever said, because certainly, now and forever, the Yankees suck ["count the World Championships, missy" -- Sars]). Before you know it, Chris and Alex's tuk-tuk coughs, wheezes, and breaks down. Gary and Dave speed by, and Gary gives a little salute. I loved that scene, and it's by far the most I've ever liked either of these teams.
Cut to Mary, interviewing on the bus. "Peach is using the restroom, the public restroom, right now," she says with a little smile, as Peach approaches in the aisle. Mary grins and points at her. "Look, she did it. Did you do it?" The Fruit confirms that she did. "This is huge for her," Mary says. Snerk. The Fruit thinks the bathroom was pretty gross, but Mary insists it's clean.
Taraweasel. "I think this is not an express bus," the Weasel gripes. Of course, Wil has already shown today that he misunderstands the meaning of the word "bus," so I suppose he could also misunderstand the meaning of the word "express."
Temple at Ratchaburi. A big statue of a bat looms. Ah, yes. Last year, the rat temple. This year? The bat temple. It was either that or the cat temple, I suppose. Gary and Dave arrive, and start looking for the flag.
