The other nine teams board the second flight, some worried that the Monster Truckers may have outsmarted them, which is not something they need to be worried about. Phil reiterates Rob & Kelley's four hour layover in Hong Kong, while the other teams are all flying further on down to Jakarta to change planes. As a result, the Amazing Red Line is far outstripping the Amazing Green Line. That plane lands in Jakarta and James & Abba hurry through the terminal to try to catch a 4:25 connection to Surabaya, rather than the 5:35 flight that they and the other teams are already booked on. Most of the other teams attempt the same thing by getting on standby, but James and Abba are the only ones to get through, even though Jaymes hopes that the team he's dubbed "Long Hair Don't Care" isn't that fortunate. But everyone else sees them head on through and Chippendale-James rechristens them "Long Hair Do Care." James & Abba take off on what the subtitles unnecessarily tell us is the "1st Flight to Surabaya." Which sounds like the title of a song, though not a song James ever would have played on.
Meanwhile, Rob & Kelley are waiting out their layover in Hong Kong, unaware of whether they're behind or ahead of anyone else. Rob's just happy they're running their own race, which is why we're not seeing any other backpacks around. Of course, Rob & Kelley are traveling with rolling suitcases, which I suppose underscores his point without making it the slightest bit more valid.
The sun sets over Asia, and James & Abba land in Surabaya and hire a cab, hoping to hold onto their lead. The other eight non-Monster Truck teams land however later and run to cabs with varying degrees of alacrity. "We're all going the same place," Gary says lazily. Yes, that's what "race" means, Gary. I assume he's not a substitute gym teacher. Aside from the fact that they all share the same destination, it's more to the point that when they get there they're likely to have to wait until it opens in the morning anyway. Everyone gets cabs, and we learn that the twins are feeling some affection for Trey & Lexi, who they describe as "cute" and "so far away from home." Unlike these two, whose home is a mere hop, skip and jump most of the length of Indonesia and across the Bay of Bengal from here.
