Miss Alli: A | Grade It Now!
Dorks on Golf

Wandering, looking,'s a race for the terminal now. Keep in mind that the first two of these three teams will presumably be on a charter fifteen minutes behind Cha-Cha-Cha (Boston will get to go right to the pit stop, so they're sort of out of the equation), and the last one will be fifteen minutes behind those two and half an hour behind Cha-Cha-Cha.

Tara and Wil find the terminal first. Blake and Paige find a terminal, but it's not the right one. Now it's between Thunk and the Teeth for the second spot on the charter with Taraweasel. They both run for it, but Blake and Paige slip in just ahead. When Thunk shows up, Tara teases them that they're "last out of the airport." "Don't be evil like that," Oswald scolds. She doesn't let up, though. "Gary, you're not looking so good over there! Feeling the burn?" Good grief, Tara, would you put a sock in it already? As Gary mentions, fifteen minutes at this point really shouldn't be the end of them anyway.

Outside, Alex, in his cool-ass shades, is telling Wil about the tourist place where they went to get their information. Tara and Wil go there, while Gary, Blake, and Oswald work the phones to find out what they can ahead of time about Coober Pedy. "I thought you were the Big Wench," Wil says, to an unamused face from Tara. Raise your hand if you saw that one coming. Well, actually, no -- raise your hand if you didn't see it coming. Those hands will be a lot quicker to count.

Boston and Cha-Cha-Cha board their little plane, and then Taraweasel and the Teeth board theirs. They take a fair amount of delight (particularly Wil) in noting Gary's great unhappiness at being stuck on the last flight. I'm not sure these people like Gary very much. In other news, starting with the joint Roadblock screwup in the previous leg, the Blake/Wil animosity seems to have dried up, or at least cooled down, or perhaps just been redirected toward Thunk. "We broke 'em, we broke 'em," Tara sings. Oh, nice. Their flight takes off.

Finally, Thunk gets on their flight. "All we have to do is not slip up, which for us is near impossible," Dave laments with what should be, for him, alarming accuracy. The Amazing Yellow Line progresses from Adelaide to Coober Pedy. We get a few scattery aerial shots, followed by the first charter landing at 2:45 PM. Boston and Cha-Cha-Cha pile out. Apparently, it's rather hot in Coober Pedy, because they all immediately start looking like they're going to melt into puddles. Alex takes the position that it felt like it was a hundred and fifty degrees, but Chris counters that it actually was a hundred and fifty degrees. "I've never been in weather this tough before in my life," Alex says. Both teams hop in their SUVs, with Oswald reminding himself and Danny of the rather small size of their lead. Now, Cha-Cha-Cha has to head for the metal tree, but you'll recall that Boston is traveling on the FF ticket, so they get to head directly for the bush camp pit stop. Chris and Alex, incidentally, have picked up some really, really hideous green hats, which I'm sure are quite functional, but which are in fact even uglier than the Hating-Hats. They're like the Hating-Hats, only in a gruesome olive shade and significantly floppier, and neither of those adjustments is any kind of improvement.
