Bran and Ericka's former cabbie delivers Sam and Dan to the Estates Theater (Sam briefly wondering where Dan is going as he's getting their bags out, when Dan is only walking over to the clue box), and Dan takes this one. Which they almost immediately regret, after reading that the clue mentions Don Giovanni. Apparently Sam was a vocal performance major for a year in college. As though that has anything to do with the Detour. But he does get to sing along with the aria and say, "I love this song" to Meghan and Flight Time as he joins them on stage. I'm sure they're impressed with how cultured he is. Brian says they left them on the rope. "We kind of took their cab," he admits guiltily to Meghan and Flight Time. Well, at least he's not trying to spin it.
Brian and Ericka have wandered into some business that has a grass parking lot, asking if they can call a cab from there and getting the skinny on where their clue is sending them.
Now there are three guys wandering the theater, and Big Easy has a regular-sized guitar. "It's miniature to him," Meghan jokes. Sam finds a regular violin, and while Flight Time does a little ballet along with the aria, Sam brings his fiddle up for approval, only to get one of those top-tier laughs and a big no. Shouldn't Don Giovanni be singing "Siiiii!" or "Noooooo!" like at the end of the opera? Which I only know about from seeing Amadeus?
Brian and Ericka's cab picks them up, and Brian says he's sure the brothers' consciences are bothering them. Ericka's not so sure. Whatever difference it makes.
Cheyne is now under the stage, opening access panels and shit. One of them leads directly out to stage right. This has, for him, the unexpected drawback of putting him unavoidably in earshot of Meghan, who starts directing him until he closes the panel again. That put a little crimp in his challenge strategy of ignoring her as much as possible. Big Easy has found a tiny mandolin case, but no tiny mandolin. Flight Time gets into the singing, standing and singing something in full voice, in the operatic melody, that ends in "Where my Big Easyyy!" "Shut up!" Dan hollers down. Big Easy finds what looks like a small bag of rocks, or perhaps D&D dice. Meanwhile, Cheyne clambers up into the theater's flyspace and wanders along the catwalk. There's a shot of Big Easy trying his sack of rocks on Don Giovanni and getting one of those operatic noes from Don Giovanni, but it's clearly out of sequence since Meghan's already gone from the waiting area. Then he tries a tiny but empty mandolin case he found on the main floor, and earns another laugh. Which is also getting on Big Easy's nerves. Way up high in an opera box, Cheyne finally discovers a tiny mandolin in its case. "Please be it," he says, and comes down telling Meghan to cross her fingers. Everyone stops and watches as Don Giovanni checks it out and tells Cheyne, "Yes." Big Easy interviews that it was worth seeing them leave first to get Meghan out of there so he didn't have to listen to her calling Cheyne's name all the time. He hasn't built up Cheyne's resistance to it, after all.
