In the back of their cab, Ken raises a hand to point to what he thinks is their destination, visible through the window. Tina pushes it down so as not to distract their driver. Sometimes we get functional Ken and Tina, and sometimes we get this.
And at Park Iskusstv, Andrew and Dan have ascertained -- from their cab driver, who walked them to the park map -- that they're in the wrong place, after a forty-minute cab ride. Apparently there are two Parks Iskusstv in Moscow, at least according to their cabbie. "There's no way we're going to finish the leg today," Dan laments. "No way." You'd think it would be hard for the Amazing Editors to find a sufficiently dramatic statement to close out the first act of each episode, but some despairing team always seems to come through for them. And it's usually this one.
"Could we look like bigger idiots?" Dan wonders rhetorically after the ads. I think that has been firmly established: they can and they have. At this point, they execute their go-to emergency maneuver that has served them so well throughout this race: they stand around flummoxed for a while. Finally their cabbie tells them they need to go downtown. Back to the cab. "We've made zero progress," Dan narrates. Andrew just stares straight ahead, dead-eyed.
Nick is still tallying statues, while Starr waits on a bench in the courtyard of Mikhail Bulgakov's apartment building, under a large likeness of his face. "So what's with you and Dallas?" it seems to be asking her. At the park, Nick is up to six Lenins and one Stalin, while Dallas is just sort of wandering around. After totting up a second Stalin, Nick heads back out of the park to try his luck at the bookstore. Dallas: "Damn." He's drawing a complete blank on the two most famous Russians of the twentieth century. Not counting Baryshnikov, of course.
