Mirna, at a ticket counter: "We need to go to Roose-ee-yah, right now." She even punctuates the "right now" by slapping the counter. I bet she just made herself popular all over the world with that. No, the flight is full. Wow, shocking that that didn't work, isn't it? She even slapped the counter. I wonder why they didn't want to help her. As she pushes Charla around in a luggage cart (hee), they start to act panicky. I wish I believed panic was called for.
Commercials. "Buy our phone plan, and you'll act like a guy in a band." Yeah, sign me up immediately.
Back at the Buenos Aires airport, both Mirna and Charla and Bob and Joyce are still working on flights. Finally, Bob and Joyce work out a deal with Lufthansa, and they seem to be at least on their way, if badly screwed nonetheless. They actually wind up on the same flight from Buenos Aires to Madrid as the Twinkies and Moms. However, as Phil Phills in the details, we learn that the Twinkies and Moms will go from Madrid to St. Petersburg through Paris, while Bob and Joyce will have to wait and connect later through Frankfurt.
As the Luck of the Obnoxious (they're not competent enough to have achieved Evil) would have it, Mirna and Charla are able to take advantage of a cancellation, and they manage to get a flight with only one connection in Frankfurt. They would.
In Madrid, Marshall and Lance and Chip and Kim switch for their flight to Frankfurt. And when they get to Frankfurt, who do they run into? My, my, my, it's Mirna and Charla in the departure gate for St. Petersburg. It's like the famous collision in Copenhagen, with less kissing on the head and more hating. Well, more overt hating. Mirna, wearing a dumb-ass hat and thus completing her quest to be the most complete picture of an undesirable contestant ever, declares herself "ready to rumble in Russia." I'll give you "rumble," girlie. Bah.
St. Petersburg! New city, new country. Awesome. And what do we see in St. Petersburg? Well, snow, for one thing. It's reeeally snowy. It's like Minnesota in...oh, April. And we also see Colin and Christie, who are unsurprisingly the first team to make it into town. They get a taxi/van to take them to the battleship Aurora. And then, before you know it, there are Brandon and Nicole, following on British Airways. "Holy cow," Nicole says as they get a load of Russia. Hee. I love "holy cow." It's so homey. They get a taxi.
