The Americas are getting ready, and Brian reminds us that he's scared of heights, while Ericka is afraid of water. "I decided to do it for her and conquer my fear a little bit," Brian explains. Ericka seems to appreciate it. The brothers are getting started across the rope, and not enjoying themselves. Everything's less fun when you're suddenly second-to-last. Sam says it's uncomfortable. "It's gonna feel good for me," Ericka tells them, and does a flirty little shimmy. Sam and Dan are still bickering, this time over whether to use their feet to help themselves along. First Dan tells Sam to quit it and when Sam says he thinks it's better, Dan tries it and whines, "I don't like that!" Don't do it then, jeez. As the other two teams come in sight of the train stop, these four demonstrate the limitations of a team task where each person still has to perform individually. To wit, Dan and Brian are both ahead of their partners, and both Sam and Ericka are annoyed with their partners' attempts to hurry them along.
Meghan is trying to get directions for where they're going from a fellow train rider, and they sound pretty complicated. Lucky for them, Cheyne spots a taxi and flags it down, then snatches the pen and notepad out of the old woman's hand and drags Meghan off to catch it with him. She doesn't want to go, saying he's being rude, but he ignores her and leads her over to the cab. Meanwhile, the Globetrotters are learning from the old woman that the next train is ten minutes out. Meghan and Cheyne end up in the cab, she still complaining about his rudeness. "I'm trying to win this race, babe," he says, his hair now so tall after weeks of racing that it's brushing against the cab's ceiling. He points out that the Globetrotters could have done the same thing. She maintains that he was more rude about it than he needed to be. "This isn't a frickin' hold-your-hand game, babe!" he protests. She still feels bad about leaving them. "That is ridiculous," he says. "If you're saying that at this point in the game, that is absolutely ridiculous. If you don't agree, where's your competitive spirit, babe?" She doesn't have an answer for that. Meanwhile, the Globetrotters are boarding the train. "Cheyne's an ass," Flight Time remarks once they're underway. The train passes within view of the rope course, and all they can see is that one of them is far behind.
