For Slow and Steady, teams will harness up and be suspended from a long rope running almost the whole length of the course, along which they will have to pull themselves to get the next clue. Sam and Dan decide on Fast. "We'll be able to maneuver better than we think," Sam tells Dan, which is the least accurate thing he's said since "Prague is a country." They are sent to change clothes, while Meghan tells Cheyne she's not up for the kayak, so he reluctantly agrees to do Slow. He interviews that they thought it would be "the safer way to go." You can tell it's killing him.
The Globetrotters arrive at about the time Sam and Dan are in their underwear on the grass. And apparently the show's staff of Brothers' Underwear Blurrers has been given the week off. Flight Time reads the clue and says, "I think we should do Slow." Big Easy heads off, very fast. Did he not just hear him?
Finally, Brian and Ericka get to the town square, but since they have no idea what they're looking for, this might take a while. If only they'd been sneakier.
The two lead teams are getting ready to go; Meghan and Cheyne are up on the platform getting gloved and hung, while Sam and Dan launch their inflatable kayak. Cheyne reminds Meghan that they'll need to hurry, because the Globetrotters are right behind them, and not worried about the height. "We'd jump off the third floor in the projects," Big Easy says. "This ain't nothin'. There ain't but two stories right there." Flight Time says his projects only had one story. Oh, I bet there are lots of stories there now, and I'm sure some of them are about Flight Time. They ascend the platform as Meghan and Cheyne get going. And lest you're expecting one of those canopy tour-style rope-gliding rides that people do for fun in the rainforest, it's not to be; the rope is more or less level, and it takes some pulling to move yourself along it. "We're gonna beat ya!" Sam and Dan sing from their kayak as they paddle through the calm water below. They must not have seen the onscreen graphic reading "1st Attempt" just now. But then they start bickering even before they hit the rapids. Dan's cry of "Don't be a bitch!" is the highlight.
