"It's a lot harder that we thought it was going to be," Dan interviews as we see him and Sam wading out into the mud, the Amazing Editors blurring out both of their crotches. Yes, I can see that being necessary for Dan, with his gray boxer briefs, but Sam's wearing a pair of khaki shorts, so those Estonian hotties must be having quite an effect on him. In their red-and-white striped shorts, Flight Time says he was happy to see the mud. "Both teams are at a disadvantage, "he says. It's not clear whether he means both visiting teams or both teams on each court, or how a disadvantage can be obtained when it applies to both teams.
Brian and Ericka get started loosing veggies at the target, although Ericka's first one bounces off her hand and doesn't get far. This is not a short-range shot, either. They could be here a while. Like, if those veggies are fresh now, they might not be by the time they're done.
Neither the brothers nor the Globetrotters are doing nearly as well as Meghan and Cheyne did at the volleyball, either getting bogged down to the point of immobility or hitting the ball out of bounds on the rare occasions when it does come into reach. Back on the road to get there, Gary says they're hoping to catch up at a Detour. Which is a reasonable thing to hope, since it's the only thing that might save them. Big Easy keeps getting stuck. Flight Time gets impatient with him, but when Big Easy protests, he gives that familiar "Go Big Easy!" cheer. Dan and Sam are getting frustrated, and bickering again. They really have grown (especially in terms of whatever the editors are trying to hide inside Sam's shorts). Big Easy? Stuck again. How's that spiking working out?
But after the ads, the next serve comes right to him, so he's able to slap one-handed it back over the net without moving and score their first point. He suggests to an opposing player, "If you need a rest, just hit it into the net, okay?" Sam and Dan talk about how much they like volleyball (somehow without mentioning Top Gun, if they're even old enough for that to have been a formative scene), but this version is hard to play if the ball's out of arm's reach, since you can't move your legs. I don't seem to recall Meghan and Cheyne having as much of a problem with that, probably because the two of them combined weigh less than one Globetrotter. The brothers do score one point by letting it go out of bounds on their side. The Globetrotters score a second point, as do the brothers when the opposing server hits the net (probably because of Sam rushing him rudely along). Then both teams get a third point. Meanwhile, the Americas are closing in on their target. The other two teams are also closing in, now at four points each. "I have a lot more respect for David than Goliath," Ericka says, firing another fruit and possibly a dis on Big Easy. Volleyball continues, and the Globetrotters are the next team to score five points, so they're done. Flight Time crawls off the court barking like a dog for some reason, his shorts falling down. They're off to the Pit Stop. Except, as Brian and Ericka are continuing to shoot, the Globetrotters take the time to get dressed again, and then head off along the boardwalk in the wrong direction. Whoops.
