Andrew and Dan are finally performing the folk dance with, if not skill, at least enjoyment and gusto and a fair degree of commitment. Which counts for a lot, if you ask me. The instructor agrees with me, and hands them their clue so they can get back in it. Back to the Shetland pony lady, and they decide to take the bus option. "Trolley boose!" Dan yells at no one. Thank God -- I was almost starting to like them.
Way, way back at the Bulgakov apartment to which they've just returned, Toni and Dallas hail a cab with the 400 rubles they've begged and secure a ride back to Sokol'niky park. "We're just gonna take this one step at a time now," Toni says. Which is wise, because if I extend the metaphor, their shoes might as well be made out of Lenin statues.
Ken and Tina get out of their cab back at the original bus stop, just as a trolley bus is pulling up across the street. Tina Bowfingers across several lanes of moving traffic, ignoring Ken's warnings. "You're gonna get me killed," she carps as she appears to step in front a moving car. I think I get what's going on there; like Ken, I'm quite a bit larger than my wife, and am thus discouraged from creating a blind spot for her when crossing a busy street. Ken is not observing that rule. Still, they end up safely on the other side of the road and on the right trolley bus at last. It pulls away just as Andrew and Dan are on the other side of the street, talking to the operator of another trolley bus that's telling them he's going the opposite direction from them. "That was a huge mistake!" Dan complains as they run across the road, but there's another trolley bus right there, so they recover quickly. It's an indication of how well this leg is going for them that missing a trolley bus could be considered a huge mistake at all. Normally, for them, that would simply be expected. On the bus, Andrew remarks on their Speed Bump performance: "Not bad for a white Jewish kid like Dan." I think it's interesting that with both Speed Bumps this season, the teams who had to do them had fun with them. Can you imagine Colin and Christie doing that? They'd probably call the very concept of a Speed Bump cheating.
Riding the escalator up from their final Metro ride, Nick examines the postcard of VDNKh Park Station, with the big dorsal fin figuring prominently in the photo. He figures that's what they're looking for. Soon enough, they stumble on a clue box, and are happy to see they're the first to find it. And even happier to read that it's sending them to the Pit Stop on foot.
