Miss Alli: A | Grade It Now!
Contestants do get woolly, 'cause of all the stress

Taraweasel car, where for once Wil is driving and Tara is navigating. "Every second counts," he emphasizes, knowing that the Teeth are right up ahead.

The Teeth find the trucks. As they finish loading their SUV, Paige comments that Tara and Wil are arriving. "So they're right on our tail," she baby-voices. You know, I think if you put a pinhole in her side and let some of the helium out, Paige would talk just like Kathleen Turner. She also notes that Cha-Cha-Cha is just behind Tara and the Weasel. "This is crazy," she chirps. That Paige chirp is very versatile. I suspect she uses it for both joy and medical emergencies.

As Taraweasel finishes chaining up their vehicle, Tara says, "Make me proud, Papa" to someone. I can't tell who it is, and at this point I really don't care. If it's Wil? Ew. If it's the driver? EW! Meanwhile, Oswald beckons the Cha-Cha-Cha driver to help them with the loading, just as Tara and the Weasel work on getting their driver moving. "How can we help you make this go fast?" Tara says impatiently. Before you know it, things have progressed, and she and Wil and the Teeth pile into the trucks at about the same time. Blake gives their driver directions, which is fine, and calls him "mate," which is not fine. "We've never been in an eighteen-wheeler before, and this is pretty cool," Paige says, still wearing that same grin -- she doesn't leave home without it, that's for sure. Taraweasel also drives off.

Cha-Cha-Cha, still supervising the loading of their SUV onto the truck. "Oh, come on, I want to go," Oswald mutters to himself as they stand around. "Hey, relax," Danny reminds him. "I know, I know, I know," Ozzie answers. "Do you need to help us do anything [sic] to get going quicker, or...we're cool standing here?" he asks the driver. Well, of course they're cool standing there. They're cool standing anywhere.

Wil is told that it's a three-and-a-half hour drive to where they're going. I'm curious about why they didn't just drive the SUVs. It's not as if they've never driven a few hours before, I don't think. Could they have been trying to give them time to sleep? No three-and-a-half hour drives when everybody's sleep-deprived? Very curious.

Danny and Oswald finally jump in and get going. We see a few lovely night shots of the drive, and then we peek in on Boston, snoozing in the luxurious cabin of their rig. Blake and Paige are curled up sleeping, too, and for all the ribbing they've taken for apparently "spooning" in this shot, that's the way you sleep two people comfortably in this amount of space, it seems to me. I mean, he richly deserved a raised eyebrow for that speech about wanting to marry her, but this didn't strike me as odd in the least. Frankly, for the Teeth, this is refreshingly normal.
