Derek and Drew arrive at the airport, correctly noting that it's closed. As the Asshat cab pulls in behind them, Teri is asking about where to find "Singapore Airline," but she and Ian, too, notice the closedness of the airport. Just once, I'd like to see them all sit down and sing camp songs in one of these situations. "We can't go inside. Ah, well. 'Oh, they built the ship Titanic, to sail the ocean blue...'"
JVJ are walking on the airport road again, just right down the middle. They get a little funny moment as John Vito looks up at the road signs and says, "Wanna get off at this exit?" Jill giggles. Me, too. I would just like to point out to all past teams who worked themselves into sweaty fits trying to be funny that it is the small, natural moments like that one that actually crack people up. The harder you work for it, the harder you [THUNK].
Derek and Drew and Asshat are having a little chat outside the airport. Asshat asks if they've seen any other teams, and Derek and Drew say they haven't. Just then, though, we see the Bald Snark and FloZach approaching. As the clock strikes 5:00 AM, everyone files into the airport. To her credit, Teri seems to press the opening time of a ticket agent, and she gets her rear in gear ahead of everyone else. However unpleasant Teri and Ian are to each other, they do seem capable of mustering up politeness when it benefits them personally, as it did here. SwissAir manages to make room for Asshat on a flight that's leaving at 7:50 AM, and the other teams are still working on flights when they take off. The Amazing Yellow Line finally earns its paycheck as it leaves Geneva, touches Zurich and Vienna, and then stretches east all the way to Kuala Lumpur. Now that is an Amazing Yellow Line.
Back at the airport, Derek and Drew eavesdrop on the Bald Snark's ticket-buying plans at the Air France counter, while John Vito and Jill work on their tickets as well. The Bald Snark and the twins share a chuckle as Ken and Gerard see that Derek and Drew have just completely piggybacked on them, taking the shortcut of telling the ticket agent to stick them on the same flights she gave to Ken and Gerard. Derek and Drew also nab tickets for FloZach, and actually, this shot of Flo with her hand on Drew's back as they stand in line is the first thing we've seen that makes this "flirtation" look like anything other than a manufactured distraction. Drew goes on to say in a quickie interview that he's helping FloZach because he "[doesn't] want to see her cry." Wow, there are so many things wrong with that that I hardly know where to start. When the guy is in fear of your inability to deal before you've even started dating, I have to wonder whether the whole thing is perhaps off to a poor start.
