Amy and Daniel finally make it to Wijaya Motors in last place. "Oh my gosh, I want to cry right now," Amy says as she exhaustedly opens the clue. They're doing ice, not that it matters.
The blondes still have a crowd of loudly appreciative admirers as they finish unloading their ice and rush for the Pit Stop in seventh place. Amy and Daniel aren't even bothering to keep their five-foot-long girders of ice intact, which helps Amy to carry some smaller ones. They get the ice on board the truck and start the ride, Amy confident that they're in last place. Phil checks in Caitlin and Brittany as one of the happiest seventh-place teams ever. Rob & Kelley are finishing loading their ice onto their cart as Gary & Will's truck pulls up, and then soon finds the drop-off point. After starting the leg so optimistically, Amy is reduced to hoping someone else is having as much trouble as they are. Right on cue, Will is stressing to Gary that they're about to lose some ice from their cart. Gary blows him off, but then the cart tips forward and dumps the whole load on the ground. "Dammit, it was alright before, though!" Gary yells. "It can't go anywhere this way, there's a wall!" Gary seems to have a limited amount of patience for Will and it's all used up for the day. Meanwhile, Rob & Kelley get their Pit Stop clue in ninth place. "Warning, the last team to check in may be eliminated," Kelley reads. Amy & Daniel start unloading their truck. Gary & Will seem to have reloaded their cart and are back underway with it. "There's Phil, go! Right here!" Rob screams as Kelley as they emerge from the market. They roll their suitcases onto the mat and are suddenly all smiles as Phil tells them they're team number eight. They're happy just to be in it still and to not have to track down an Indonesian cab driver to send a bill to for a million dollars.
Amy and Daniel continue loading ice, while Gary and Will drop theirs off. The teachers get a big cheer from the locals and Gary walks through the market, saying, "Take the smell in, Will, we'll never be here again." Which is probably not any less true of the many, many teams ahead of them, so I don't know why he's bitching. Amy & Daniel unload as Gary goes on, "It sucks because for so long I wanted to do this. This is the opportunity of a lifetime." "Because I couldn't make a balloon our dreams are shattered," Will agrees. Amy & Daniel finish unloading as Gary declares, "I'm not runnin'." Yeah, finishing strong is for suckers. They wander aimlessly through the stalls while Amy leads Daniel at a run (at least according to the editing; the teams could actually be hours apart for all we know). Finally the teachers trudge dejectedly to the mat and Phil tells them they're still in the race, as team number nine. Their mood improves in a fast hurry after that. "We're going all the way now!" Will says, capering around the mat. Happiest ninth-place team ever.
