Marshall and Lance look bored and disgusted as they head for Banana Island. Marshall says they won't give up. Heh. Want to bet?
You can hear the Twinkies' distinctive Honking of Stupid before you even see that we have rejoined them on their way to Banana Island. Or rather, on what should be their way to Banana Island. As it turns out, their driver was taking them somewhere else, because when they confirm that this is the destination, he abruptly turns the carriage around. I wonder where they told him they were going. They bicker about whether they gave the driver adequate instructions, which seems like a bit of a moot point now. I love how one of them tells the other one that they have to make sure they give instructions that are adequately "specific." Maybe they just told him they wanted to go somewhere that was high in potassium.
Chip and Kim arrive at the goats. Chip anxiously asks if they bite. He voices over that they ranged from "little baby goats" to "big old horse-sized goats." As it turns out, Berlitz has not made it to the barnyard; "stay" in English doesn't work to keep an Egyptian sheep on a boat. Thus, Chip goes for a more crude solution by telling Kim to block them from jumping off the boat once he gets them there, and he'll take care of the actual hauling.
Colin and Christie take the dirt path toward the farmhouse. There's something about Very Intense Colin bouncing along on the back of a donkey that tickles my sense of absurdity. It's like watching James Dean pedaling a Big Wheel. The guy waiting at the end of the path, furthermore, is very enthusiastic about encouraging them to dump the water into the jug. Colin re-donkeys, and he and Christie head back down the path. The donkey moans, and Colin says, "It's okay, donkey." (Donkey: "Thanks for your concern. Incidentally, you weigh a ton.") Well, Colin does have a heart, so that's good to see. They pass Brandon and Nicole. "Lookin' good, guys!" Colin calls out. (Sidebar: That expression always makes me think of a friend of mine who used to teach skiing to little kids, and he said that one of the things he taught them was that when they all went down the hill together, when he yelled out, "Lookin' good, guys!" they were supposed to yell back, "Feelin' good, Ken!" So every time Colin, or whoever, says, "Lookin' good, guys!", I always want to yell, "Feelin' good, Colin!" But anyway.) Brandon and Nicole's donkey still seems very unhappy. Of course, he's a donkey, so...I don't blame him that much. It's not like he gets to go to the mall, and people probably make a lot of "ass" jokes. Brandon and Nicole are also yelled at with great flair by the farmhouse guy. That guy has really thrown himself into the role of Colorful Local. He may need to be medicated later.
