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.
Boston works on their tuk-tuk's radiator problems. You know, if Esquire had been more mechanically inclined, perhaps their taxicab curse wouldn't have been so devastating. Between fixing the tire and apparently knowing how to lend a hand with the radiator, Chris is at least taking charge of his own destiny. They note how sad it is that "Team Bozo" got in front of them.
Speaking of Gary and Dave, they're at the temple, but in a moment reminiscent of Dark Hair and Light Hair at the Eiffel Tower, they can't find the flag. Gary, in an interview: "It's very weird for me to go to a temple and look for a clue. Usually I go to a temple and look for a parking space." (THUNK.) While they're hunting around, Boston arrives. Alex spots the flag immediately, and now they're in first place. They open the clue, and it's the Roadblock. Phil explains the task. Basically, one member of the team has to venture into a cave full of bats to retrieve the next clue, wearing masks to protect against "dangerous bacteria." Dun dun dunnnn! Phil earns his paycheck this week for his delivery of the phrase "millions...of bats!" Chris takes the Roadblock for Boston, and when he re-emerges, he has nothing nice to say about the experience. "Totally rank, it was diaper city," he warmly recalls, in an interview over the footage of him gingerly working his way toward the clue. Turns out that in addition to the bats, the place is crawling with roaches. Hey, I think I know people who've lived in that apartment. Once he gets the clue and gets back out, they read it. It sends them to the pit stop at Ban Plai Pong Pang, a "traditional river house," which they have to reach by taking a "long boat," which you may think of a canoe-taxi without being too ridiculously far off.
