On the boat, Millie impatiently wheedles the lady who's on the boat with them to get going, and Chuck points out that the lady isn't driving. They have to drive themselves, just as it said on the clue when he read it thirty seconds ago. "We have to read our clue?" Millie asks the lady. HA! Exactly. Boy, if that's not a metaphor for the deteriorating performance of teams in elementary clue-reading, I don't know what is. "We have to drive ourselves," Chuck repeats, since she ignored him last time. It also appears that Chuck is reading the directions and figuring out how to operate the boat, while Millie is just sitting there snapping at people and saying what a hurry she's in. While they're still trying to figure out what they're doing, here come the teams running from the train. It sure didn't look like the train went very far past the bridge, so I'm not sure about the quality of the information Millie got at the airport. "I have no clue which way we're facing," Chuck says, staring at a map. "Just start drivin'," Millie says. Why, sure! What better way to choose a direction than pure, unadulterated luck? I say maps are for people who aren't conversant with their own mojo. Chuck interviews that they were "frantic": "We didn't know if we should go quick, or stop and read the map." Millie literally has her head down and is rubbing her eyes at this point in the interview, so tense is she over this situation, even hearing it described significantly later. Back at the bridge, Millie watches the other teams approaching. "Look at me, not them," Chuck says. "I know where we are, you showed it to me," Millie says impatiently. "Please go, Chuck." In other words, she is not reading the map. She did not read the clue. She is not steering the boat. What, precisely, is Millie doing at this point, besides criticizing everything he does?
The Chipsters read the clue, except for the part where they refer to the "bluh-bluh-bluh museum." Heh.
Back in the Chuck and Millie boat, she keeps telling him to get going. In The World's Most Uncomfortable Interview, Chuck says that the whole time he was trying to figure out the map, Millie kept yammering to get going, which made it impossible for him to concentrate. It's hard to convey how uncomfortable this interview is to watch -- Millie fidgets the entire time and looks incredibly irritated while he's talking. It's a little creepy.
As BuffJon and the clowns read the clue, we get the information that the operating instructions for the boat, as well as a map, were indeed provided to them. Monica and Sheree take the slightly wrong route walking to the bridge and have to get turned around, which is funny mostly because they call out to a guy on the bridge, "How do we get up there?" and they say it in perfect unison, sort of the way you sometimes hear twins do. Identical inflection, identical pitch -- it's very unusual for unrelated people to be capable of that, I find.
