The Amazing Race (2001) s34e11 Episode Script

How Am I Going to Survive This?

Previously on
The Amazing Race
Five teams continued racing
the Mega Leg in Ronda, Spain.
I have never
put an earring on anybody.
Well, it's time you do it now.
Emily's injury put pressure
on the long-lost twins.
Is your knee hurting?
Aubrey and Claire
faced their greatest fears
at the Roadblock
I don't think I can do it again,
so please
let it be the right clue.
I hate this. I hate this.
I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.
and triumphed over them.
You're amazing.
It was so scary.
Luis and Michelle claimed
their third win of the season.
I'm very pleased to tell you
that you are team number one.
Yes! Yes.
Military brothers Marcus
and Michael built a comeback,
but in the end,
it wasn't enough.
You have been
eliminated from the race.
- Understood.
- Understood. Yeah.
I took $500,000
away from my brother.
All teams
are now flying 2,000 miles,
from the Kingdom of Spain
to the Republic of Iceland--
the land of fire and ice.
One third
of the world's lava flows
in the last 500 years
happened here in Iceland,
creating this dramatic landscape
that is scattered
with volcanic activity.
Throughout the race,
teams have won Expedia points,
good for unique,
expertly-designed trips.
They also used
the Expedia app to book hotels.
Today, teams will go on
an Expedia-inspired adventure,
some of the most amazing
destinations on the Expedia app.
- Ready to go?
- Yes.
The final four teams are
boarding helicopters that will
take them to the starting line
of this penultimate
leg of the race. A spot
in the finale is on the line.
Oh, why won't this go?
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Let's go!
Wow. Oh, my God. This feels like
a flight simulation
roller coaster.
This helicopter ride
is so gorgeous.
Like, this feels
like something out of a movie.
- I kind of want to drive this.
- Oh, my God.
It literally felt like
I was James Bond,
and I was getting picked up
for a supersecret spy mission.
Nice. I was your
Bond girl, right?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah.
Oh, my gosh.
I have tears in my eyes.
Words can't even describe how
grateful we are to just be here.
We showed up today,
and David's dream came true.
I'm a helicopter mechanic,
so by nature I love aviation.
I love helicopters.
I love working on them,
wrenching on them.
It's one thing
to fly back home for work,
but when you come here
onThe Amazing Race,
you're in Iceland,
you're on the top four,
it just gives it
so much more meaning.
I just can't stop smiling.
Experience of a lifetime.
Wow. To be here
in the top four
onThe Amazing Race,
it's like we're
in a dream, really.
We'll never get back the
33 years that we missed out on,
but the memories
on the race make up for it.
I'm so happy to make it
this far, but I want more.
We're so close.
That prize feels right there.
- It feels so close.
- A million bucks feels right there.
- That could change our lives completely.
- Yeah.
- Let's do it.
- Top three, baby. Top three.
- No way. Are we landing here?
- Are we landing here?
Oh, my gosh.
on top of ice.
Wow. We made it.
Being in the final four,
it's a dream.
Our goal
is to make it to top three,
but you never know
who's gonna win,
so we're not gonna let our
guard down. We're here to win.
This is amazing.
Let's go!
- "Route Info."
- "Welcome to Iceland."
Ten percent of Iceland
is covered in glaciers--
thick ice that slowly
moves across the landscape,
sculpturing mountains
and carving out
U-shaped valleys like this.
Teams will
begin their adventure
by climbing
the face of this one--
Teams must climb
to the top of the glacier,
one at a time,
to retrieve an Icelandic flag.
Once both flags have been
retrieved, they'll get a clue.
- Let's go! - Let's go, babe!
- All right, Iceland,
let's go!
Look at that.
That's beautiful.
- Look at this, baby.
- Wow.
We're really excited
'cause we're leaving
- in the first group.
- First group, baby.
- We've left in the first group one other a time.
- -One other.
- Gonna climb first?
- Yep.
We're hoping to make
the most out of this leg.
We have to make it
to that top three,
and let's go, baby.
Go, baby. You got this.
Let's go, Aubrey.
- Good job, baby. Patience.
- Don't slip.
Aah! That was not a good one.
I hate heights, so I went first
'cause I could get it over with.
You got this.
He got it up there real quick.
I'm so excited.
You got this, Aubrey.
All right. Ready to go
down. There you go.
- Just throw the ice down here.
- Good job, baby.
Almost there, baby. Come on.
- Good job.
- Yeah!
That was amazing.
Aubrey is doing good.
She's going up at a good pace.
All right, amor.
You got it, baby. Yes.
That's it, baby. You got this.
There you go.
You're there, you're there.
My hands are cold.
Good job, sugar.
- You're almost there.
- Come on, come on.
- Thanks.
- There you go, baby.
- You go. You're going,
you're going. Let's go, baby.
Remember, your flag is a little
bit more to the left, baby.
I did not look down once.
- Let's go, babe.
- Thank you, babe.
You got it.
Use your toe, baby.
There you go, sugar.
Good job.
She got the flag.
There you go.
Good job, David.
This is amazing!
- There you go.
- Good job, babe.
- Here you go.
- There we go.
We got it. Let's go.
All right, lean back
and let her bring you down!
- This side, let's go.
- "Route Info.
to find your next clue."
All right, we're off. Let's go.
- Thank you.
- Let's go.
to find your next clue."
- That was awesome.
- No, you did great.
I think you did it
faster than me.
- Really?
- Hell yeah.
Let's do this!
- Okay.
- "Route Info."
"Welcome to Iceland.
Climb an ice wall."
Gonna climb an ice wall!
For today, the strategy
is to listen to my body.
I'll push through
as much as I can,
but I cannot risk
injuring it any further.
Oh, I think
this is what we're climbing up.
We are leaving
15 minutes behind.
Only four teams,
one team's going home.
And we have
to climb this huge ice wall,
which is a little nerve-racking
I'm very afraid of heights.
Like this?
Oh, this is super cool.
Derek, put your toes in.
I knew I was
doing something wrong
when I saw Molly
start scurrying up above me.
Your legs were going up,
like, parallel.
Like, you were
going up like a frog.
Dang. She scurried up that.
She's a natural.
- How do I come down?
- Just sit back.
Lean back more, Derek.
Oh, gosh.
All right. Go, Emily.
Trust the fronts of your shoes.
- Just go, go, go.
- Yes.
- Yeah. Trust the fronts of your shoes, Claire.
- Okay.
Your flag's to the left, Em.
- Good job, Claire.
- You're almost there. It's okay.
How do I come down?
Just lean back.
Good job.
- Okay. Awesome. Thanks.
- All right.
- Thank you very much.
- Take it. Thank you.
Thank you.
"Route Info."
- Let's go.
- Okay.
All right, let's go.
That was awesome.
That was so fun.
See the cars?
Look to our left.
All right, we got this, baby.
Come on.
- Give me the map. Yeah.
- You want the map? Here.
It's stick.
Ooh, that's gonna be fun.
David, what's
going on with the driving?
I don't know. I don't know why
it's not going into first gear.
Okay, there's
something wrong here.
Oh, that's reverse.
Come on, babe, you can do it.
Are you sure
there's no brake, babe?
No, babe, the brake is off.
Oh, first stall.
Somebody help!
Find it?
All right, I got it.
We're good. We're good.
Let's go, baby.
Wow. I feel so manly right now.
you know how to reverse.
- I'm good.
- You okay?
Just keep on going.
- So now it's hurting?
- Sorry.
It's okay.
It was a little
nerve-racking to see
all three teams
pull really ahead of us.
I think they're
pretty far behind.
At this late in the game,
you can't really wait
for any team,
so we're just gonna keep going.
It's so far.
I'm not feeling great.
I'm already in my head.
This is just
the start of the leg.
How am I gonna survive this?
We're done. We're done.
Oh, God.
It's pretty cool how
there's such less greenery
that grows in the lava.
I know what you're doing.
I'm distracting you.
Distraction technique
is a really great
pain management strategy,
Um, we use it a lot
in clinical practice.
We made wishes in Maine.
Make a wish.
Are you for real right now?
Make a wish.
It takes two.
It takes five.
Last blow.
Can't even do that.
I think
we're past wishes.
Are you holding in the clutch?
- Clutch and brake?
- Yep.
Are you in neutral?
When I saw the car,
I was like, "Oh, this is sick."
It looks like a very nice car.
- That was not a car.
- What was it?
That was, like, a spaceship.
It has a stick,
a stick.
There's four pedals in this car.
Keep turning it
until it, like, clicks over.
All right.
Clearly, I don't know
how to drive this car.
Right now, we are
comfortably in third place,
and I think
that will hold true
as long as
I don't stall out in this car.
I actually feel
pretty confident right now.
It's been a while
since I've navigated.
It's been David
the last two legs,
so time for some redemption.
Can you tell
if that's a car behind us?
- Yeah, they're behind us.
- Okay.
So that's,
I believe Luis and Michelle.
And we have David and Aubrey
in front of us right now.
Do you see this
anywhere, baby? No?
'Cause there was supposed to be
a sign that said it, right?
I think it might be
the other way, Luis.
All right.
Want to turn around?
Yeah, we'll turn around, babe.
- Why are they turning around?
- I don't know.
- We shouldn't take them out of our sight.
- Okay.
- Turn around, babe.
- You sure?
Yeah. They're
really good at directions.
- I think they're turning around.
- Yeah.
There was a small sign
that I was telling you about.
- Did you see it?
- Okay, then maybe that was it.
But it had a locked,
it had a locked gate.
Oh, that's Derek and Claire.
That's Derek and Claire
right there.
Okay, then let's
- Damn.
- Oh, my God.
We just saw David and Aubrey
and Luis and Michelle
driving out of here.
They're also
really good at directions, too.
What are we doing wrong?
Turn around.
All right, let's
- Maybe it is that way.
- Back that way?
I made
a huge Amazing Racemistake.
Okay, let's move forward.
Let's move forward.
What we are doing hopefully
only takes me 15 minutes.
Hopefully, it's just,
like, a clue.
Oh, my God. It's a stick shift.
I don't know what this thing is.
Is this
Molly, I have no idea
how to make this car move.
Did you try
moving it up and down?
Oh, here we go.
Molly, you're so smart.
You should be doing this.
When you reach
the end of the road, turn right.
Follow signs for 1
Oh, my God.
What is going on?
Am I in fifth?
Or am I in third?
I can't even tell.
Whatever gear I'm in,
I'm staying in it.
You might have
to downshift, Derek.
Yeah, but it's working.
Over there, Derek,
to the right.
I see it. Thank you.
- "Roadblock."
- "Roadblock.
Who's Feeling Misty-eyed?"
Derek must
perform this Roadblock.
Teams will abseil 100 feet
into a cave,
where they'll find a clue.
They'll then navigate
the rest of the course,
and sliding back down
to reunite
with their partner.
Let's do it!
Park and run, babe.
Park and run.
Look, baby, the sign.
Okay, make a left.
Come on.
Who's Feeling Misty-eyed?"
I'll do it.
There's two trucks.
There's people already there.
Let's go.
- We got this.
- All right.
- We got this.
- Yeah.
You got it, Derek.
What's a Roadblock?
I don't know
what a Roadblock is.
"Who's Feeling Misty-eyed?"
- I'm doing it.
- Yeah.
Then you have the lights.
David, hurry up.
All right.
- Hey, guys.
- How'd you get here fast?
We thought you guys
had finished and left.
You got this, babe.
All right, babe. Let's do it.
Let's go abseiling.
- Okay. Ready?
- Maybe.
Abseiling is canyoning.
So it's, like,
a natural-made ropes course.
- The clue is in this cave.
- I see it.
The first thing was, like,
rappelling down 100 feet,
and then you need
to find a clue.
I clip it onto myself,
and then the rest of it
is just basically a sprint.
Try to get to the end
as fast as possible.
This is
a perfect challenge for me
because it was, like, physical.
Really didn't require
any mental thinking at all.
It is super fun, honestly.
This is insane!
Just, yeah, just make a right.
And then we're parked
in the marked parking.
I'll come to you.
"Who's Feeling Misty-eyed?"
I am.
You got this, Moll.
Molly's doing this Roadblock.
Um, I'm struggling
a bit this morning.
My legs are just tired.
I mean, if you think back,
I've been running
I've been running
this whole race, basically,
with hurt legs,
and they're just,
they're just done.
I'm just nervous
how it's gonna go
for the rest of the leg,
but hanging in there.
Just got to go for it.
Do what you can.
Let's go, baby. Come on.
Let go?
All right. And then
We're doing this
for a million dollars.
Currently in second place.
Let's do it.
I'm not afraid of heights.
I don't mind
running and walking,
but it was when I saw
that there was water involved
that I was like, "Crap."
I don't swim.
Can I hold onto the rope?
No. You can't
hold onto the rope.
You know, you have to find
the clue in the cave.
And so I decided
to make my way around
to the other end of the cave.
And I was trying to swim,
but my swimming level
is, like, zero.
Let's do it.
I love this!
Oh. What's up, man?
Is that David?
I see David
way over there in a cave,
looking around like this.
I can't, I can't do it, bro!
I look to my left
and I see the clue.
As soon as
he turned his headlamp,
it pointed
directly at the clues.
And, like,
I was just mad at myself
because I was way
on the other side of the cave.
I clip it, I put it on my gear,
and I'm out.
Luis! Bro!
Sorry, David.
I'm a little concerned
about how I'm gonna
get out of this Roadblock.
I'm concerned about how I'm
gonna get out of this Roadblock.
I'm not a good swimmer,
but it's now or never, you know?
But ultimately,
I make my way around it
and finally got my clue.
Just lean back?
Like this?
Usually going
into caves with water
is something I would
just send my husband to do
by himself on vacations.
And I would take pictures
from the boat.
So not really in my wheelhouse.
But this
is the time to catch up.
I really went
as fast as I could.
Oh, Derek!
I'm falling apart right now.
All right, good job, babe.
Good job.
"Drive to the Silfra Fissure
"in Thingvellir National Park
To find your next clue."
We got it, Derek.
Get it, baby!
How was it?
- Good job, guys.
- Thank you.
Good job, baby.
And now we lost the lead.
Thank you so much, baby.
You killed it.
Is it deep?
Yeah, it's pretty deep.
- Can I-can I just swing down?
- Go.
Am I gonna go down?
- No.
- No?
What is going on?
It better be you!
You got it.
- You okay?
- Yeah.
Let's go read your clue.
Come on.
- Oh, my God.
- Yeah, Molly!
All right. "Route Info."
All right, let's go.
We're this way. This way,
this way, this way.
- Ready?
- Yeah.
"Route Info."
- Okay.
- All right, let's go.
Follow signs, 1.
And then we're gonna do 35.
- Wasn't that one 1?
- It could be.
I want you to take that one.
Okay, considering
that's Michelle and Luis,
so we really don't like that.
I think I see
Derek and Claire, babe.
We're right behind them again.
Get that first!
Neck and neck.
Battle it out for first.
I wonder what happened to David.
I know.
I know we're on the right 36.
I just don't like that
we haven't seen
any sign that says Silfra.
- And I see, like, no cars.
- Babe, it's okay.
Just stay with me. Relax.
Here's the national park.
See if we can spot it from here.
Yeah, we're on the 36.
We have to keep going.
I'm scared
Babe, babe, stay with me.
- Aubrey, I need you.
- Okay.
I just don't want to mess up.
Babe, just relax.
It's the second to last leg,
This is where I need you.
I didn't give up in that water
for you to give up right now.
- Okay?
- Okay.
So-so get out
of your head and just relax.
You killed that Roadblock.
You caught up.
You were seconds behind David.
We have a chance
to overcome with the challenge.
- All right, Derek.
- Let's go.
Oh, my God.
First place. Let's go.
Let's go.
All right.
- Okay.
- Okay. "Route Info."
"It's time
for an Expedia experience."
- Ooh.
- "Swim the Silfra Fissure,
"where the Eurasian
and North American
tectonic plates collide."
This is a very fast way
to get from America to Eurasia.
Diving between
these tectonic plates,
in this frigid cold water,
teams must look out
for the names of 14 volcanoes
and the years they erupted.
Relying only on memory,
they need
to match the names and dates
in front of a volcanologist
to receive a clue.
All right, let's do it.
"Route Info.
It's time
for an Expedia experience."
"Make your way to the vans
"and choose any available diving
instructor who will help you
change into your dry suit."
You look, you look good.
What's up, guys?
Want to come with us?
All right. Let's do it, man.
- Thank you.
- Okay.
Before we even get in the water,
- Derek has to take off his glasses.
- Oh, God.
Blink, blink, blink, blink.
Okay, good.
This is the fastest
I've ever put on contacts.
This actually is insane.
It takes me, like,
15 minutes at home.
Thank you so much, Claire.
I grew up putting in contacts,
and, like, I would
never look in the mirror
- when I did it. Like
- You'd never wash your hands, either.
Yeah, I wouldn't wash my hands.
Yeah, I probably
should have washed them.
We were really doing it a lot.
Okay, we're good. Let's go.
- Uh, Derek, put this back.
- Make a right.
We're going snorkeling, baby.
Okay, park and let's go.
Hurry, babe. Please hurry.
It said lock the car.
Hurry, babe.
I will say that at first it was
a relief seeing two teams.
So we knew we were,
like, right behind them.
So they just got here, baby.
They just got here. Come on.
Oh, there's three cars here.
They just got here. All right.
- All right, let's go.
- Let's go.
Let's go, baby. Let's go.
Here comes the sisters.
We got to really
put our challenge hats on.
We choose you.
- Okay. - Hi. Let's go.
- Let's go. Let's go.
The twins pull up.
So at that point it was
- It was game on.
- The stakes were so high.
- So high.
- Like, stakes were so high.
"Route Info."
- Are we gonna split up the-the volcano?
- Yeah, we'll figure it out.
We have a lead.
- First is in our grasp.
- Mm-hmm.
And we get in the water.
When you put your face
in the water, you're
I could feel
my lips turning blue,
and my mouth hard to move.
It was freezing.
It's gonna be tough.
- We need a dive instructor.
- Right here.
- Who would you like to pick, Emily?
- This guy right here.
I don't like running.
We know this
at this point on the race,
but I grew up, basically,
in the water.
It's cold out here.
I grew up in Virginia Beach.
I am, like,
a lifelong swimmer. I did swim
team all the way growing up.
And so a challenge in the water
is what I have been waiting for.
So I'm, like, thrilled.
Granted, it's gonna be,
like, very cold.
- Yeah.
- This is not like Virginia Beach weather.
We had no idea
how many there was gonna be.
So I looked at Luis right away.
I was like,
"I'm gonna get the first one.
- You get the second one. And
let's keep alternating." Yeah.
At first,
we had good communication.
We did have good communication,
but it's a race.
You want to finish this fast.
You don't want
anybody to pass you.
You want to be top three.
Says the girl
who can memorize things easily.
So I can't memorize things.
So I'm going slow.
I'm looking at my names.
She is way ahead.
So I'm there, and I'm like,
"Michelle, which one's yours?!"
But at that time,
we can't go back.
I have to catch up to her.
She stopped, and that's it.
Like, we can't go back.
I'm a little
concerned about my swimming,
but this is
where you don't give up.
This is where you find a way.
Instinct's gonna kick in,
and you have no other way.
At least that's
the way I'm looking at it.
Swimming time.
It's game time, you know?
So we got to do it
as best as we can.
It's do-or-die.
All the teams are here.
It's gonna be a tight,
uh, tight race.
We're gonna do it
no matter what.
We're going for it.
I've never worn flippers.
I've never worn
anything of this nature.
I'm just gonna follow Aubrey's
lead, and we'll be fine.
My mouth is frozen.
My face is numb.
- It's hard to talk.
- Let's go.
Claire and my strategy is
I'm gonna remember the odd ones.
And she's gonna
remember the even ones.
And then at the end,
we'll put it all together
and pass the test.
I know Claire has basically
a picture perfect memory,
and I am with Claire.
So I feel like
we should get through this
pretty painlessly.
All right.
Derek and Claire
are in front of us.
So are Luis and Michelle.
And here come Molly and Emily.
Knowing that all four teams
were there at the same time,
I was determined to not give up
right then and there.
I said, "I did it once,
I can do it again."
I don't know
how many deep breaths I took
trying to prepare myself,
and then ultimately I got in.
I got in the water, and,
um, I tried my best to swim.
But it was hard.
It was hard for me.
Oh, my
Focus on your breath, relax.
- We did the wrong ones.
And Hekla is here.
One Hekla was there?
Hold on, baby. What was 1104?
I thought Heklas
- I thought I got Heklas.
- Huh?
I didn't get Heklas?
You were every other.
I know, baby,
but you were going too fast.
I tried
to communicate with you.
We have such easily
triggered visual memories,
so seeing the volcano name
next to the correct dates
just flipped a switch.
The dates were
starting from the most recent
and going down to 974.
So if you could remember
the order of the volcanoes,
you could kind of
make a correlation.
Oh, I know.
There's three Heklas.
I remember one Hekla being '66
'cause 666 and hell.
I think it was a smaller
I think I remember seeing that.
- Okay.
- Check.
It's wrong.
You got to try again.
Okay. All right.
I know them all. All mine.
Thank God I did this with Claire
because she
was able to do all of hers.
- And it immediately showed me
all my possible options. Mm-hmm.
And I just had to, like,
basically match A to A.
- Baby, we're very close.
- Okay.
We're only missing part of
the last ones at the very end.
- It's fine.
- We'll get it this time.
Like, we have
to go back in there.
And I was already tired,
and it was cold,
but we could go fast
because we know most of them.
Heck. It's Nurati's birthday.
Surtsey. My dad likes to curtsy.
I was both 18, 23, 16 and 25
when I wanted cats.
And heck instead of hell
to get into heaven. 11.
Can we get a check?
You're good.
I love you.
Okay. Let's drive.
Gullfoss Falls,
known as the Golden Falls,
it is on the must-see list
for anyone visiting Iceland.
It's now the Pit Stop
for this leg of the race.
It's impossible.
I think I probably
could have memorized them all.
Oh, my God. She's so good.
- You okay?
- I have water in my nose,
and I couldn't breathe
at one point.
Hi. You can choose a board.
You have this.
Oh, my God.
I thought this one was
We screwed up our strategy.
God. Hekla. Hekla.
I'm not sure.
- Yeah.
- Check.
You're good.
- Let's go, baby.
- Oh, my God. Good job.
Thank you.
Thank you.
- It's wrong.
- You got to try again.
Check, please.
It's wrong.
- You got to try again.
- Okay.
Do you want to remember
I get Eldfell?
I'll get Hekla and Askja.
So, it wasn't too bad.
Just not panic is the key.
Uh, let's go.
It's now or never. I love you.
We got in there,
and at first I was fine.
I was like, "We can do this."
We start swimming,
and I see David behind me,
taking deep breaths.
I know what that means.
I've known
him for seven years now.
He's having a hard time.
It was a hard test for me.
I kept
taking my goggles off
because they were foggy.
I felt like I wasn't able
to catch my breath.
The water was cold,
and that was the hardest.
Is that Phil?
- Shut up.
- There's Phil!
Oh, my God.
Let's go.
- Welcome to Gullfoss, Iceland.
- Thank you.
- Thank you, thank you.
- It's beautiful.
I just want to let you know
that you are standing
next to a very famous actor
here in Iceland.
- Oh.
And you'll be pleased
to know you are team number one.
- Oh, my God.
- We did it.
As the winners
of this leg of the race,
you have won Expedia points
good for a five-night stay
for two to London.
- Wow!
- Okay. All right. Okay.
Expedia experts will
design a unique local experience
that includes
a British baking class,
a tour of Stonehenge and Bath,
afternoon tea on the Thames
and a private tour
of the National Gallery.
And I am pleased
to tell you that you are
one of the three teams
that will be racing
-to the finish line
-Oh, my God.
for the $1 million prize.
Congratulations to both of you.
We're one third of the way.
You okay?
Shh. Stop talking to me, please.
I'm gonna forget.
We only have to beat one team.
- Yeah.
- They're still in the water.
By the time we got to our board,
Michelle and Luis
had already left,
- so we knew we were the final place.
- Mm-hmm.
I knew immediately the two
that needed to be flopped.
- That was it.
- That was it.
- We're done.
- Check.
- You're good to go.
- Yes!
Gollfoss. Gollfoss.
That was rough.
Oh, my God. We made it.
- We made it.
- We made it.
Oh, my God.
- Phil, we're here!
- Leave the keys?
We're here.
We made it.
Welcome to Gullfoss, Iceland.
- Thank you so much.
- Thank you.
Luis and Michelle,
I am very pleased to tell you
that you are team number two!
And you will be one
of the three teams racing to
the finish line for $1 million.
Luis, a lot of emotion
welling up inside you right now.
What are you thinking?
We started off
as the tenth team,
and I just want to finish it.
I just want to finish the job.
The world was
waiting for you at the start.
Now a million dollars
is waiting for you at the end.
We're ready to take it home.
You okay?
I'm okay, baby. I'm okay.
Wasn't Askja 1940 this one?
I didn't see Askja.
I'm pretty sure
these two are right.
KTLA 1104 is correct.
And Hekla.
Hekla was for sure 1991.
I know 1963 is Surtsey.
What do you want to do?
We have no choice
but to get it checked.
- Can we get it checked?
- Sure.
It's not correct.
I don't want to give up,
but I definitely
don't want to go out there
and freak out again.
It's not worth
putting you in that position.
It's not worth it.
For us to go in the water
and put ourselves
back in that situation,
where I already know
the first time wasn't good.
The second time
was sure not good,
because I wasn't even in it
at that point.
It wasn't worth it
for us to do it again.
I think we're gonna
take the penalty.
It's a two-hour penalty.
I'm just
I'm so happy that we got to
do this journey together, and
At least I can say that I tried.
- Oh, my God.
- Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
Really pleased
to tell you that you are
one of the three teams
Oh, my God.
that will be racing
to the finish line
for $1 million,
against the odds.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my gosh. It's so beautiful.
Aubrey and David,
I'm sorry to tell you
that you are
the last team to arrive.
- It's okay. We figured it out.
- Yeah.
And I'm very sorry to tell you
that you have been
eliminated from the race.
- Bittersweet.
- It's not bitter at all.
At all.
I mean, I can't
You can't put a price
on the experience that we lived.
And honestly, like, Phil,
I've watched you
since I was in,
like, second grade.
It's so cool
to be standing in front of you.
Well, we-we loved
having you on the race.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
It was an honor
and it was a pleasure.
Thank you so much
for everything.
Thank you.
Now only three teams remain
in thisAmazing Race.
Good job, Claire.
It is such a dream come true
to actually be here.
We have come in, like,
with a purpose, with a focus,
and we try
to enter every single leg,
taking the lessons
that we've learned
on the previous leg
and applying them.
And I think that's really shown
in our performance.
You're team number one.
Yeah! Yeah!
- It's our turn, baby.
- That's right!
Winning for us will
really make our family proud.
Oh, my God! Go, babe!
We want to do this
for our future daughter or son
that we're gonna have.
And this prize money will
make a big impact in our lives.
We have everything it takes
to win the million dollars.
We just have to find
the great parts of everything
that we've done
and just put it together.
Oh, my God.
It's like a fairy tale.
Oh, God.
We're in the final three.
If you think about
the odds of us meeting,
the odds
of us getting separated,
adopted to the same country
and then to just come together.
All right. I got it, Moll.
We are good at challenges,
and that has been
our saving grace.
We may get a little bit
slowed down in getting there.
- Em, I'm so sorry.
- No, it's all right.
- We'll get there.
- But we have the ability
- to make up time.
- We got what it takes.
- We just have to execute.
- We have skills.
You are team number one.
I've never felt more
ready for this in my life.
We have a one-in-three shot
of winning a million dollars.
Oh, my God, Claire.
You're killing this.
I can visualize
running onto the mat,
carrying Emily on my back
and getting there first.
To win a million dollars
is gonna be tough.
We got to make
our cleanest leg yet.
We got to be on point.
We're gonna
win The Amazing Race.
We will be the winners of
season 34 of The Amazing Race.
Captioned by Media Access
Next time on the season
finale ofThe Amazing Race
All three teams have
a 33% chance
at the million dollars.
The margin for error
is almost zero.
- Right! Take a right!
- Is Broadway this way?
This is a close race.
Everybody's five minutes
within each other.
Excuse us. We're in a race
for a million dollars.
