Anyway, they load their nineteenth bunch and take off with the wheelbarrow again. Millie tries to take a turn with it too fast and almost racks herself, which only adds to the sense that she's going completely around the bend. As they reload, the wheelbarrow tips over and dumps the bunches on the ground. She tells Chuck to just go throw the first one on the truck, and she'll bring the rest. Which is goofy, because again, that is not going to save time, really, especially given the fact that she's so tired she can barely stand up. Somehow, they manage to get the bunches back up to the truck, and as Chuck finishes loading them, Millie has maybe the saddest interview moment of all: "He is very resentful of any kind of order or instruction, and I drive him nuts doing that. And I've driven him nuts doing that for years." That's just so sad that in a situation where she obviously cares about him so much, she isn't able to just knock it the hell off. Wouldn't that be the thing to do? I mean, maybe with a guy you just started dating, it would take time to get the rhythm down, but...twelve years, and you're still doing something you know he's "very resentful" of? It's just...sad. It also rather astounds me that she would say this obviously insightful thing about how much he doesn't like it when she bosses him around, and also have complained so earnestly at the earlier pit stop that he doesn't trust her. How could she not get that he probably rebels against being ordered around, which may be what feels to her like he doesn't trust her? It's making my head hurt. Oh, and one of the nutbunches looks like it almost takes out the poor camera guy when it tumbles off the truck. I hope not. That would really drive up the workers' comp premiums, I would think, when a guy shows up with forty sharp palm nuts embedded in his forehead. Just try to fill out the insurance forms, too. "Nutbunch to head." Anyway, they finally finish the Detour of their discontent, so at least they can retrieve their clue. As they get into the car, he comments that they need to check the map, and she promises that they're close. "Just go back out to the main road," she says. "Out of the plantation?" he says. "Yes," she replies. Dun dun duuuunn.
