The buses arrive in Montreal and are greeted by the Upright Citizens' Brigade. For real! ["I have a friend who's taking a class with them in New York right now! Cool!" -- Wing Chun] They are going to teach the teams some "improv games," which they will then have to perform in front of a paying audience for the chance to win $10,000. Michelle says that she would rather cliff-dive or skydive than do this mission. I feel her. I am so very, very bad at improv, or any kind of acting, or stand-up comedy. My words are my weapons! The teams go into some sort of conference rooms.
The RW team gets some instruction first. The UCB member tells them that the basic tenet of improv is "Yes, and..." and you never negate what the first person has said. He gives the example that if the first person says, "Yes, doctor, my husband is sick," the second person can't say, "I'm not a doctor. I'm a fireman." I'm just including all of this as a public service in case you ever have to do improv.
Cut to Emichelle doing improv. They're horrible. They know it. In an interview, Emily says that she's the worst in the group.
Syrrhosis tells Dan that Dan is "the last one that has to worry about any of this crap," but Syrrhosis is in trouble. In an interview, Ayanna says that her humor is "an intellectual humor" and "you have to be an intellectual to laugh at [her] jokes." Oh, really? I'd love to see an example of her "intellectual humor." What is she, Frasier? Cut to a scene where Ayanna is telling some sort of martial arts story that is so not funny at all, not even on an intellectual level. Well, I guess it's unintentionally funny. Maybe she meant to say "unintentional humor"! Yeah, that's it. In an interview, Jamie says that he will make a fool of himself. How is that different than every other day? Sorry, I had to say it. Cut to Jamie possibly humping or possibly stabbing Kameelah, who is laughing uncontrollably. The UCB member says, "That's comedy, folks!" Cut back to the RR team, where James is telling his own story now, which involves a man who sang, "No, I will not go into your toilet." I admire the potty humor; if you can't think of anything else, usually a good poop joke will do. But, no one really laughs, because it is just that unfunny. He should have said "shitter" instead of "toilet." People would have laughed at "shitter." ["Dude, I just laughed at 'shitter.'" -- Wing Chun] Everyone on James's team laughs at how bad they are. And they are. Bad.
