Those two aforementioned teams are just getting their messages as Michael tells Louie to make the call. "Joe and Heidi," Louie says, and the music gets all dramatic. In an interview, Michael recalls Joe's confidence during the "mobile Pit Stop." "He needs to be humbled. Period," Louie declares. So it's not Joe's knee that will end up holding him back this leg, but his mouth. Michael slaps Joe and Heidi's picture up on the sign and interviews that he didn't come to make friends. Well, mission accomplished. "I came here with a friend, I'm gonna leave with a friend." He might have wanted to change out of that "Karma" shirt before making that speech, is the only thing. The next clue tells them to turn around and find the church of Massiges.
Brent and Caite are driving along, looking lost until Caite spots the faux-dogfighting airplanes low over the horizon. "They're up in some sort of flying things," Brent marvels, apparently unable to recognize an airplane if it's more than a few decades old. They're all excited, probably thinking they get to go up in those "flying things" themselves, so it's probably a bit of a letdown when they get their Detour clue in seventh place and find they're just going to be crawling. As they change, Caite says she feels like she's about to model army clothes. "Out of style army clothes," she amends. Make it work!
Walking to the battlefield, he-Jordan wonders, "Should we pretend like the enemy is chasing us and walk a little bit faster?" Dan's up for that, and they start running. "They're right behind us, suh," Jordan dorks, like a kid playing make-believe. Dan tells him to shut up. Thank you, Dan.
