The Amazing Race (2001) s34e08 Episode Script

La Ville Rose

Previously on
The Amazing Race
Seven teams raced
to Dordogne, France.
This is all I wanted!
Glenda and Lumumba crashed.
Oh! Oh, no!
But a Good Samaritan got
the newlyweds back on course.
After Michael
made some mistakes
Guess I'm overthinking this.
- He left his keys.
- This is awful.
navigational skills
As a tank commander,
I'm not a stranger to a map.
secured a victory
for the military brothers.
And you are number one.
As elimination loomed,
Aubrey and David
felt the pressure.
David, I am trying!
But it was Glenda and Lumumba
who bid farewell.
I'm sorry to tell you you have
been eliminated from the race.
- We know. We know.
- We know.
Guess where
you're staying tonight.
Uh, hopefully up here.
You get to choose
where you stay.
You will be
using the Expedia app.
Expedia app has
lots of amazing choices.
- Yeah.
- Time to book a hotel.
Let's do it.
- Hey.
- So that's the Expedia app.
- Yeah, let's see what hotels we can find.
- Okay.
hundreds of properties.
That one looks good.
Two travelers,
one room, two beds.
Two beds, please.
- Okay. And booked. So easy.
- Easy.
"Route Info."
"Drive to Toulouse, France."
Teams will now drive
themselves just over the horizon
across the lush
French countryside,
100 miles to Toulouse.
This city's distinctive
architectural designs
have earned it the nickname
the Pink City
because of its
uniquely colored bricks.
"Once there, find the Stade
Toulousain for your next clue."
Okay. Let's go. Let's go.
- Stadium Toulousain.
- All right, Toulouse, here we come.
- Okay, we've got to get the map.
- Do you have the key?
It's unlocked.
This is into
Toulouse proper right here?
Yeah, that's Toulouse proper.
There might be a left here
- Yeah, it's on the left.
- to get out of here.
Last leg,
we finished in first place.
I think a lot
of that was attributed
to performing well, like,
- navigating to places.
- And driving places.
We could probably do better
on challenges, though.
Yeah, for sure.
Last leg, I had some careless
errors after the Roadblock.
Hopefully we'll
rectify that today.
- Mistake-free.
- Yeah.
We wanted this leg
to be mistake-free.
How are you feeling?
We haven't run much,
so I'm feeling okay right now.
Running and impact
is something that
really irritates my knee,
so we got to be careful.
Rip it. Okay.
"Route Info."
"Once there,
find the Stade Toulousain
for your next clue."
- Yeah, baby!
- Let's go.
Think it'd be a good strategy
to work with
Derek and Claire today,
um, and just figure out
at least the first location,
so we get the ball rolling.
This is us,
like, right around here?
- No, right here.
- Yeah, yeah.
What highways go into it?
Oh, Claire. I see A20.
Wait, guys.
Okay, A20 goes
all the way down here.
- Does it keep going?
- And it goes to Toulouse, right here.
This is Toulouse.
All right, guys.
Yo, that was killer.
That was quick.
- Luis gave me a thumbs up.
- Okay.
I gave him half a heart.
- Aw.
- And he gave me the other half.
Luis and Derek
have a bromance going on,
so that might be
a positive thing.
He's my bro.
He's my brochacho.
He's my dude, man.
I love Derek. He's hilarious.
When we start getting close,
Claire has to read out to me
where we're going,
and I just
have a pretty bad memory.
So now she's gonna
pass me little love notes
- that tell us where we're going.
- Uh
We're trying to do a lot
of small things to improve,
and hopefully it'll add up
- to a win today.
- Yeah.
We weren't happy with our
fourth-place finish last leg.
I feel like there was
a lot of pressure on us.
We weren't having as much fun.
Last night, Michelle
had a dream with her dad.
Her dad passed away
ten years ago.
She had a dream that we went
home in the middle of the race
and her dad was home
- and told her how proud he was of her.
- Yeah.
Every time we start the race,
I have this
huge hole in my stomach
that I can't take away.
And now I'm feeling
so much better,
like, just bringing us
back into that
"having a good time" moment.
Let's do this, guys.
"Route Info."
"Drive to Toulouse, France."
- Let's go.
- Let's go.
Just based off the last leg,
we didn't get lost.
We just took a different route.
So I think today,
staying calm again,
staying cool, staying cute
and staying collected.
On top of, like,
looking at the map and saying,
"Okay, if this
is where we have to get,
what's the fastest way
to get there?"
Instead of just
taking the first route you see.
Have you found this yet or no?
No, I haven't.
There's just so many maps.
Last leg, we put
a lot of pressure on ourselves.
We handle pressure differently,
and that's
when we start to clash.
So today, we decided
we're just gonna enjoy and
speak nicely,
as David asked me to do.
Do you want to switch?
I feel like you're gonna
be better at this than I am.
- You want to switch now?
- Yeah.
- Driving like the French.
- Driving like the French.
So now I'm on the D49,
According to my calculations,
if you just stay on this
the whole time,
it's gonna
drop you off in Toulouse.
That's for sure
the fastest way?
It's a straight shot.
We're going
as straight as possible.
Got you.
The main route is a couple
kilometers, um, east of us.
David is really good
at the smaller things.
He's really good
at the intricacy.
And that's what a map is.
It's-it's so intricate.
- Make a left towards Cahors, okay?
- Okay.
Now this is the A20.
We're gonna take this
all the way down.
What do we want to do?
'Cause this is either
a left or right.
I'm looking,
I'm looking, I'm looking.
All right.
I think we want E80.
I think we want E80.
You sure, Marcus?
- E72 to Toulouse-Centre or E80?
- I want E80.
Are you sure?
Just keep following signs
for Toulouse.
You want me
to get into this line here?
- E72?
- Yeah.
- Do you want me to exit?
- Yeah.
We don't want
to keep going south.
"Stade Toulousain"?
- Yes. Yes.
- Sweet.
"Parking Lot B."
High five, Sis.
Let's go.
We're the first ones here?
I don't know. I'm so confused.
- Here we go.
- Okay.
"Who's Ready to Take One
For the Team?"
- I will.
- Okay.
This is the home stadium
to Europe's most successful
club rugby team,
Stade Toulousain--
five-time European champions,
21-time champions of France.
In this Roadblock, teams
must complete a rugby drill
with Stade Toulousain's
champion pro women's rugby team.
On the whistle,
teams must run, roll
pick up, pass, catch
and score a dropkick
to receive their next clue.
All right, Molly's gonna do it.
Emily's physical condition
is not at 100% at the moment.
I'm also, I think,
the more athletic of the two.
Got a warm-up run in.
We're the first
to arrive to the Roadblock.
Molly is
going to be playing rugby.
First, we had to
tackle a big dummy.
I tackle, roll
Then roll on the ground,
pick up the rugby ball,
knock over another dummy.
And then
toss the ball backwards,
drop it down on the ground,
and kick it up in the air
and hope that it
went through the goalposts.
Oh, no.
I'm really glad it's not me.
This is hard.
I think we took the wrong one.
Now this is saying 62,
which we don't want.
- I'm just following the signs, man.
- I-I get that,
but, like, the other
the sign said for E72,
even though it's E72,
it said Toulouse-Centre.
Well, we could
probably get to the stadium
walking faster than this.
We're going away from the
stadium, and we're in traffic.
We could be towards
the back of the group now.
And now that
we made the wrong turn,
I know where to go, so hopefully
we can get off of here
and-and correct ourselves
as quickly as possible.
Look, babe, we're right here.
- We're getting here.
- Yeah.
You have to go this way.
Blagnac is this way.
Yeah, yeah,
we got to go this way.
Yeah, let's take it.
Go here?
Yeah, E72 is good.
Is this the one we wanted?
Yeah. Follow Toulouse-Centre.
Let's go, let's go, let's go!
All right, Molly!
Oh! I hit my knee.
It's all right. You got this.
This is so fun.
You got this, Moll!
All right, third time.
Third time.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
You got this, Moll.
That's my girl!
Thank you so much.
- Merci. Merci.
- Yeah.
- Okay. You read.
- All right.
This looks good on you,
by the way.
"Route Info.
"Drive to Couvent des Jacobins
"and find the musician
playing the French horn
in the cloister
to receive your next clue."
- All right. Let's go.
- Okay.
David, how are you
doing back there?
- Uh, I'm good.
- I'm really happy up here.
I can tell.
You're living your best life.
Why did we not do this sooner?
So far, so good.
We found where we are
pretty quickly
and where we need to go.
I think the biggest thing
is just getting out of
this sketchy, little,
narrow hilltop village.
- Boom. "Parking Lot B."
- Okay, perfect.
There's a clue box.
The stadium is basically
in front of us.
All right. So you want me
to get off on this exit?
- Go. You're good at sports.
- All right. I'm gonna do it.
"Who's Ready to Take One
For the Team?"
- I will.
- Take one for the team, babe.
All right, let's go.
Here the brothers come.
Marcus will do it.
We saw Derek and Claire and
Luis and Michelle, group two.
I'm like, "Ugh. Here we go."
Caught up.
Yeah. Yeah.
Look at my short shorts, baby!
Go, go, go.
When I was in college,
I was almost recruited
to be on the rugby team,
- and I am
- Not true.
No. Okay. I wasn't recruited,
but I had some friends that
told me I should play rugby.
She walked by probably
one rugby practice and was like,
"Yeah, they were recruiting me."
Oh, God.
Thank you so much.
- Golazo.
- Good job, good job.
Bye. Thank you.
Bye, guys.
You got this, Claire.
That's a good roll, Claire.
You got the ball.
Yeah, look at that.
Oh, my God! You're killer!
Thank you. Thank you.
Merci. Merci.
Congrats, guys. See you.
Marcus played football,
but he, uh, wasn't a kicker.
He was a receiver
or cornerback-type.
All right, don't rush.
Don't rush it.
We saw Michael and Marcus.
They said
they took the wrong exit.
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
They took the wrong exit,
so they're not perfect.
- Let's go.
- Come on, guys!
It's somewhere in Toulouse.
Let me see
if it's on the smaller map.
Jacobins. Look at the index.
Right here. Hey, guys.
It's just south of us
along the river at the curve.
Right here. Look.
All right.
This way and then here.
- All right.
- See you guys at the Detour.
If I finish
that Detour before you,
I ain't waiting for your ass.
Toulouse-Centre, to the right.
We're in good shape.
- The canal, this is where we cross.
- Okay, perfect.
I was feeling pretty confident
when we drove
up to the canal and
crossed over to the main road
that we needed to be on.
- That's I can't drive down there.
- Yes, you can.
There's an arrow that says "in."
Oh, okay. Okay.
This is a parking garage.
Oh, oh, we can't get out?
Oh, my God.
But we missed a turn and
ended up in a parking garage.
Yeah, just exit.
Can we pay by cash?
I don't see anywhere to pay.
Oh, my God.
This is a nightmare.
What do we do?
So we ended up in a parking
garage that we can't get out of,
'cause we don't
have credit cards.
All we have is money.
Oh, bonjour.
We don't have credit cards.
Molly walked over
to the machine,
popped in some coins.
And we were able to exit.
- Um
- Hallelujah.
Yes. Hallelujah.
Let's try not to let this
kill us right now, right?
We're at the palace de Jacobins.
- Oh, parking right here.
- Okay.
I don't know about that.
- This is the street we're supposed to be on.
- Okay.
This is, like, the building.
It's this. Couvent des Ja
It's this.
Do we?
We have to go to the cloister.
Oh, no.
- Yes.
- Ahoy.
- That's for you.
- Thank you.
- "Detour."
- "Say Six or Lay Bricks?"
The Academy of the Floral Games
was created to promote poetry
from this region.
The best poetic verses
were awarded a golden violet.
Teams need
to memorize three portions
of a French poem
performed by three poets
who will be scattered
around this basilica.
If they can correctly
recite the poem in its entirety,
the judge will hand them a clue.
This is your standard red brick,
and this is what the bricks
look like here in Toulouse.
The distinctive pink color
occurs because of the clay
found in this area of France.
As a result, the city is often
referred to asLa Ville Rose,
and people say
the buildings blush.
this complicated pattern,
teams must complete
this Detour brick by brick.
Once their bricks
are perfectly placed,
they'll receive their next clue.
- Say Six. I know this one.
- Okay.
Six lines. Three and three?
- You want to do that?
- Yeah.
Can we find it on our map first?
I took, like, four years
of high school French.
Six lines of French poetry?
Like, I can definitely do this.
- We'll ask somebody outside.
- Yeah.
This is the stadium right here.
And we need to get off.
As soon as you can get off here
- on one of these exits, get off, okay?
- Okay.
We had two different
ways to get into Toulouse.
And one of them
is proving to be the faster way.
We should
have stayed on that one.
We found where we were starting,
where we were going.
We used the correct maps.
Yeah, we just
couldn't figure it out.
It seemed like
every other team, like,
one kick, and they were good.
Come on. Take your time.
Don't rush yourself.
I really thought it was gonna
be like punting a football.
- I'll get it this time.
- Where's the football?
Let me throw this football
between, like, the tire.
I bet you I'd do that
faster than the other teams.
At that point in time,
we're in fourth place, and
I'm kind of letting, like, the
day wear on me, 'cause it was
my decision to go
the wrong way on the highway.
And then get
to this Roadblock, and
I didn't do a very good job.
I lost track of
how many attempts he's gotten.
Somewhere between six and nine.
Probably more than that.
I don't know.
Thank you. Merci.
- Good job.
- No, I didn't.
My bad, man.
I couldn't hit the ball.
- This stadium.
- Yep, so it's this stadium.
There's a parking lot there.
- There's David and Aubrey.
- Who was that?
David and Aubrey.
Hey, we got
to knock this Detour out.
Okay, let's do it.
Do you want me to do it?
- You can do it.
- All right.
You got it, babe,
you got this.
You got it, Aubrey!
Oh, no.
We're here.
We need
to go to the other side.
So an immediate right.
- Um, not that one.
- Actually,
let's see where
this truck goes.
Oh, no.
This is onto A61.
Well, that sucks.
We got to work our way
around it.
Hey. Bonjour.
How do you say that one?
- "Loin."
- "De."
"Loin de."
- "Loin de toi."
- "Plus longtemps."
"Plus longtemps."
We have to go to the next one.
We have to have
all the lines memorized.
- Yes, I know.
- Okay.
It's three people,
and each one has two lines.
Claire's memorizing one line.
I can memorize the other line.
Say this word again.
- "Montagne."
- "Montagne."
We've got to know it by memory.
Let's go back to the first.
- "Loin de toi."
- "Loin de toi."
- "Plus longtemps."
- "Plus longtemps."
Got 'em.
- "Je nepee."
- "Je ne puis."
Oh. "Je ne puis."
This woman. This woman.
It's three, four.
Do you want in on it, Derek?
- "Sans rien voir."
- "Au dehors."
"Au dehor-dehors."
"Au dehors."
Sans, without seeing au dehors.
Without seeing the doors.
Memorize it in French, please.
This poem was using some weird
words I've never seen before.
There was weird
sentence structure, too.
So I was like, "Oh."
- It's a poem.
- It's a poem.
- "Les."
"Les yeux." Like laser.
I was just using, like,
"Les yeux" sounds like laser.
I can do that.
We can do this before them.
I think I got to go back.
What do we do?
Do we switch? We stay?
We went to the second person,
and we couldn't
remember the first.
You want to switch?
- Yeah, let's switch.
- Okay.
Our strategy,
when it comes to switching,
is to be very decisive.
"Switch?" "Yes." Boom.
- That's the bridge.
- Yeah.
- We have to go over?
- Yeah.
There's only
two teams ahead of us.
It's not terrible.
Look for the French horn player.
Hello, sir.
Thank you, sir.
- Thank you very much.
- Thank you.
Merci beaucoup.
- We're gonna do Lay Bricks.
- If we can find it.
We did not consider
doing French poetry.
The pronunciation even
of the roads as we're driving
- through the city was
pretty bad. It's embarrassing.
Do you want to walk fast?
It's just easier for me to jog.
- Okay.
- Hold on.
It's like I need more support
under my kneecap.
It's all right here, baby. Look.
Nobody's there.
When we got to the bricks,
there was no one there yet,
so we knew
we were the first ones
to get there. It was incredible.
So there's one pallet of bricks
and one wheelbarrow.
We have to take
all those bricks over there.
Yeah, so, babe, we have
to take nothing else from here?
- No.
- All right, let's go.
Get the closest one to it.
So we got to lay the bricks
first and the sand goes on top.
We saw a layout that
we had to follow in a demo.
Maybe we should
start from the inside out.
Can we get down here?
Are there
different-sized bricks?
I don't think so.
I think there is, baby.
Are they small?
- Hi, guys.
- What's up, y'all?
- Good job.
- Thanks, y'all.
We saw Luis and Michelle.
It put a little bit
of pressure on,
but we knew we were in a good
place to keep up with them.
Okay, this is us.
Attention to detail, right?
So we realized that some
are smaller and some are bigger.
He's gonna lay out
the pattern first,
and I'm just laying the bricks
for him so that he can do it.
We're looking for lines
five and six.
Oh, right there!
"Le mains."
Okay, if you want in.
- I already know mine.
- Okay.
"Triste, et le jour pour moi
sera comme la nuit."
Hit 'em. Yeah!
There you go!
There you go.
There you go.
Hit 'em hard.
There you go. Pass it.
You got this.
Let's go!
Let's go!
Thank you, thank you.
Good job, baby. Good job.
Uh, marked parking?
It's Lot B.
- Who's that?
- Aubrey and David.
- Saw somebody else.
- Let's go.
So everybody's made it and left.
We weren't the last ones, baby.
Let's go, Mattie.
We just saw Mattie and Quinton.
They literally just got here.
David, your map skills
are doing something good for us.
"Who's Ready to Take One
For the Team?" I am.
- Come on.
- Here.
We have to run.
You need to kick in the ball.
No. Wait.
- The other way?
- Uh
We know the game of football
very well,
so I think Quinton can do this.
Does it have to go this way,
or can it go this way?
- No, no, this way.
- It has to go this way?
- This way, yeah.
- Oh, that's hard.
- Drop it slow.
- Yeah.
Yeah! Perfect!
That's the whole thing?
- That's all.
- Oh, let's get it. Let's go.
- Jacobins?
- Jacobins. Yes.
- To the right.
- Okay.
This is an absolute mess.
This is Couvent des Jacobins,
to the right.
- Somebody's getting out.
- Yep.
It's David and Aubrey.
Cloister. In the cloister.
- What's up, guys?
- I don't know.
- What are you looking for?
- The music.
Aubrey, Aubrey,
where are you going?
Go on this side.
Are you sure?
We're looking for a cloister.
This way.
- It has to be
- Hold on, babe.
Three minutes. This way.
Over here.
Yeah, it's right here.
Couvent des Jacobins.
The horns. The horns.
- What are you thinking?
- I'm thinking recite.
All right, let's do it.
In Jordan and Amman,
we did the alphabet.
We got it correct pretty quickly
- relative to other teams.
- To other teams.
So we're like,
"As long as we can complete
"the challenge
in the same amount of time,
"then David and Aubrey
wouldn't have a chance
if it came down
to getting to a place on foot."
- I think we should do the Recite the Six.
- The bricks?
Recite the Six? Fine.
Because I feel like
you have a good accent.
- Okay, let's go.
- David,
he knows Spanish and English,
fluent in both.
And I thought, "This is
gonna be so easy for him."
Come on.
j'rai par la montagne.
Je ne puis demeurer
de toi.
All right, sorry. Loin.
Loin de toi.
- Come on, let's Sorry, sorry.
- Yeah, let's go back. Uh
Merci. How was my first one?
Yours was good. Yours was good.
- Careful. I'm starting on the bottom.
- All right, baby.
Pretty much,
I'm going in a spiral around.
And we're gonna nail this,
and I
and I feel good about this.
This has to match up
with the second line.
It's short, long, short, long.
Short long, short.
I've never done
any masonry work.
I do not come from
a family of bricklayers.
I come from
a family of salsa dancers.
I do not do construction.
I don't even build Legos,
but we are both very good
at paying attention to detail.
Pass me two long. Thank you.
Don't drop.
Here we go, this is it!
Get it up there!
- Let's go!
- Let's go!
Let's go. Where do I got to go?
Thank you. Thank you.
j'rai par la montagne.
loin de toi plus longtemps.
Je marcherai les yeux
Sans rien voir au dehors
.sans entendre aucun bruit.
- Triste, et le jour
- Mm. Mm.
pour moi sera comme la nuit.
- Bravo. - Ah!
- Ah, merci. Merci.
- Merci. Mm.
- "Route Info."
- Oh, God.
"Race to your next Pit Stop.
Make your way
to Canal de Brienne."
This waterway
is part of the Canal du Midi,
which was created
to connect the Atlantic Ocean
with the Mediterranean Sea--
a cost-saving shortcut
that allows
for the transportation of goods
across Southern France.
Today, it is utilized
by more than 9,000 watercraft
every year,
includingPays d'Oc,
the Pit Stop
for this leg of the race.
The last team to check in here
will be eliminated.
- "Warning, the last team to check in will be eliminated."
- Canal de Brienne
is where we were before.
We got a poem?
I think so.
- Hello.
- I'll get the first one.
Come on.
"Par la montagne."
"Par la mon montagne."
- "Loin de toi."
- "Loin de toi."
- "Plus."
- "Plus."
- "Longtemps."
- "Longtemps."
"J'rai par la montagne."
- "Loin de toi plus longtemps."
- Okay.
- "Je ne puis."
- Hello.
- "Aucunbruh."
- "Aucun bruit."
- "Bruit."
- "Boit."
For me, at least,
it was a pronunciation.
These words--
I can read them
using the English structure.
- But when you pronounce them, they have different accents.
- Mm-hmm.
It was hard.
"Aucun bruit."
"Aucun bruit."
Are you good with yours?
"Sans entendre aucun bruit."
Thank you.
"Je marcherai."
- "Jemargerai"?
- "Je marcherai."
"Je ma Je marcherai"?
I thought
actually memorizing the words
was-was really easy.
"Vor au dehors."
- "Voir."
- "Voir."Okay.
Pronouncing them correctly
with the
Whole different story.
Yeah. Yeah.
- "Dehua"?
- "Dehors."
"Sans entendre aucun bruit."
- There's something wrong with that corner down there.
- Which one?
Bottom left.
No bricks fit there.
So you got to move 'em over.
No, no, no, no, no.
Yeah, you're right.
You're right. You're right.
There we go.
That fits better.
One more.
Okay. Want to ask for a check?
- If anything, we'll fix it after.
- Okay, cool. Sure.
Okay. Done. Check.
- Yes?
- Oui. Bon, oui, oui.
Sand! Let's go!
- Okay.
- Let's go. Okay.
Oh, they got it?
- There's a clue at the sand.
- Babe.
- We probably got to brush it.
- Oh, okay.
Go pick up the sand.
I love it.
Okay. Check.
Yes? Yes?
- Yes. Thank you.
- Thank you.
Doing a very nice job, Miami.
Limpialo, limpialo.
It's like when I make,
um, flower beds.
- Yes? Yes!
- Parfait! Parfait!
- Yes!
- Awesome.
--Thank you. Thank you.
-Thank you.
- Good?
- Thank you.
Thank you.
- All right.
- Ah.
Thank you so much.
Don't kill your knee, Em.
Not going to.
I don't like this.
Wait, this is a whole center
- I need to get out of here.
- I'm getting flustered.
It's not gonna
help me right now.
What the heck? What?
Did you find it?
It says Couvent Jacobins,
460 meters.
I'm going
I'm having a moment. Hold on.
We're at this stop,
and we're like,
"Is this a stoplight?
Is it ever gonna turn green?"
'Cause there were these things.
These metal beams came up,
and I'm like, "Oh, my God."
You can't drive past it.
I want to get out.
Got to get out.
I don't think we're
supposed to go out this way.
Mattie, maybe
could you run to that, uh
- Yeah.
- thing right there?
Hi, uh, we're stuck.
We're trying
to get out of this area here.
Can you put the things down?
Okay. Thanks.
This was a mess.
- There's arrows for parking.
- Ah. Yes.
When we saw that it was
just one small, little
turn down the street,
we were both really frustrated
with how close we got
and how much time we wasted.
Like, every second counts.
Let's just park.
We're so close.
Our friend.
Beautiful playing
with the French horn.
- Six lines.
- Yeah, that's lit.
Yeah, we're gonna
do some lyrics.
Pays d'Oc.
We are happy to be here, Phil.
Welcome to Toulouse.
- Ah, merci.
- Merci beaucoup.
So, I am very pleased
to tell you guys
you're team number one.
And I do have
some good news for you.
- Okay.
- Oh. Mwah. I love you.
As the winners
of this leg of the race,
you have won
Expedia reward points.
- Oh!
- Oh, okay. All right.
That are good
for a five-night trip for two
to Bangkok.
- Oh!
- Oh!
Expedia experts
are going to design
a unique local experience,
including an ancient
Thai cooking class,
floating market speedboat ride,
arena river dinner cruise
and nighttime tuk-tuk tour.
Back on top.
We definitely hit a slump there
at the beginning, um,
and I think that
we were very hard on ourselves
and really kind of pessimistic
about if
we could win this thing.
Getting first today
really does show itself.
- Bonjour.
- Bonjour.
J'irai par la "forte,"
j'rai par la "monte."
I forgot the last one.
- Okay. Thank you.
- No.
Let's go, let's go, let's go,
let's go. Come on, come on
I'm gonna kick it
when you're ready.
I'm ready.
j'rai par la montagne.
"Jema margerai."
"Je marcherai."
- "Audewa"?
- "Au dehors."
Triste, et le jour pour moi
sera comme la nuit.
- Merci.
- That's correct.
Here's the clue.
"Warning, the last team
to check in will be eliminated."
Let's do it.
- You want to do it again?
- I just want to go around.
Are you a poet?
- Yes. Very dapper.
- Looks like it.
- You take the first one.
- Okay.
- "J'rai par la montagne."
- "J'rai par la montagne."
Let's go, baby.
- Let's go.
- Miami in the house!
Miami, baby!
Let me carry your backpack
on the front.
Let's go, ladies!
Emily, you got this!
Let's go, E and M!
- Emily, you're a beast.
- Good job, guys.
Good job, guys.
- Florida in the house!
- Yeah!
Oh, my goodness.
Welcome to Toulouse.
Thank you.
Emily, how are you
holding up here? Huh?
I just, for a second there,
I was just thinking
about my daughter
and just pushing through,
and I just
She's setting
a really great example of
I just want her to have
perseverance and confidence,
and, uh, this race has
given me both those things.
And I'm just so happy
that she's gonna get to see it.
Luis and Michelle,
you are team number two.
- Oh, let's go.
- Ah.
Emily and Molly, that would
make you team number three.
- Top three.
- We said top three. Top three.
How are we feeling?
- Terrible?
- Yeah.
Welcome to Toulouse.
Ah. Marcus and Michael,
this is not how you wanted to
end this leg of the race, huh?
- It sure wasn't.
- Not at all.
You are team number four.
- Okay, got it. I was like
- Wow
- And you are still racing.
- Wow.
Feeling disappointed 'cause
we started in first place.
We kind of squandered
that-that lead away,
- yet again.
- With everything that's said,
we're still in it,
and so we'll talk about
things we got to improve.
We live to fight another day.
"Sans entendre aucun bruit."
"Je marcherai les yeux
- "Pensah."
j'rai par la montagne.
loin de toi plus longtemps.
"Sera comme la nuit."
- "Comme la nuit."
- "Comme la nuit."
Triste, et le jour pour moi
sera comme la nuit.
- C'est oui.
- Yeah!
Let's go. Let's go.
Can we ask you a question?
Speak English? Canal de Brienne.
Right and then straight.
Left on the cross.
Thank you.
- All right, we have a 30-minute run.
- Let's go.
- Hello.
- Bonjour.
j'rai par la montagne.
No, wait, wait. Here?
Triste, et le jour pour moi
sera comme la nuit.
C'est exact.
- Thank you.
- I love you. I'm gonna kiss you.
- Okay.
- Thank you so much.
the last team to check in"
- How are you feeling?
- Tired.
Give me your backpack.
There's a bridge.
- Don't cross the water, right?
- Yeah.
Come on, come on.
Is this the right road?
Yeah. This is the canal.
- It's open for a reason.
- Now we just have to run.
Canal de Brienne.
No, this isn't it.
- So it's the other side.
- So it's the other side.
- Okay, cross here.
- Yeah, cross here. Cross here.
Let's run.
What now?
Okay. 30-second slow down?
No. We're racing to the end.
- I know.
- We are racing to the end.
Come on, come on, come on.
It was further down.
Run down?
We could.
Let's go! Come on!
There they go.
Whew. Oh, man.
Put a lot into this leg.
- A lot.
- We did.
You will be racing
in the next leg of the race.
- You're team number five.
- Yeah!
There's another team behind you.
Hey, guys.
Welcome to Toulouse.
Thank you so much.
Beautiful city.
Quinton and Mattie,
I know it's been
a challenging leg.
To say the least.
As I mentioned to you,
there is an elimination
at the end of every leg,
and unfortunately, you are
the last team to arrive.
I'm disappointed, 'cause I know
what we are capable of, and
this is not
how we wanted to go.
We're both competitors
and very upset that we're
not gonna be in that final leg
racing for a million dollars.
We wanted to be champions.
That's the stinger.
I wouldn't be able to
run this race with anybody else.
Um, I think
this was not just
a bonding moment,
but I think something
we can tell our kids
and grandkids one day.
Yeah. Yeah.
It will live on forever.

Come on, Marcus!
I have zero confidence
at this point.
- Do you want to try jogging?
- I can't.
It's okay, baby. It's okay.
This is killing me.
You guys seasoned
with salt, right?
The fish?
Oh, God. This is not good.
