Totally sounds like a Jaime/Cara quote to me. If Tammy/Victor, Jaime/Cara and Margie/Luke are indeed our final three, here's what I predict.

1. Jaime and Cara
2. Tammy and Victor
3. Margie and Luke

All for the first all-female win!

Ruth, you've got a slightly less than 1/3 chance of that happening. I say that because I rate Tammy/victor and Margie/Luke as stronger teams than Jaime/Cara (just look at their finish rankings for proof).
You certainly are the final word.
:funny:

Anyway, a really good final 3. I don't mind who wins, because i'll be rooting for all three.. but more towards Tammy and Victor winning.

I guess the final position would be -
1. Tammy and Victor
2. Margie and Luke
3. Jaime and Cara

For most part of the race, we've seen more of Margie and Luke and Tammy and Victor, with personal storylines given to them.. thus it has garnered many fans for them and would make many people sit on the edges of their seats to see who would win. But at the same time, Jaime and Cara is our only hope for an all-female team to win after 14 seasons, so they definitely have their own fanbase (RUTH, Raymond, LOL) and many people would be rooting for them as well. I will not be surprise that the finale manage to generate the highest rating for the whole season.

Wish i could watch it LIVE though. :'(

so it would have looked to Freddy & Kendra, The Linzes, Eric & Danielle and joe Jer & Zabrina.
I do agree the girls started in the rather weak side (I blame my early elimination in Joab's game on that :lol:) but  they're getting better, and also, losing the language barrier in Hawaii should significantly improve their odds, shouldn't it? ;) I guess the only thing we can be certain of is that the dream will remain alive until Sunday :(

But what if C/J take the Fast Forward in Hawaii? :taze

After hearing Jaime say, "This is how you lose the race." in this clip for episode 11 by puddin:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hh3dIPupndY&feature=channel_page

it's a 99.9% chance that Jaime says the title quote for this finale.

The only thing left to figure out is whether production has historically chosen
the final quote based on the winning team or on the best quote. 

I guess the best way to know is for someone to re-watch the finales for seasons 2-5 and 10-13.  (That's not something that I could endure.)

I examined Wikipedia.  In Seasons 2-4, the final quote wasn't from the winning team -- it was from the runner-up one (Tara & Wil the Jerk, Teri & Ian and Kelly & Jon).  Seasons 5-13 (with the exception of All-Stars, where the final quote came from Charla & Mirna) either had the final quote come from Phil or from the winning team.  But the fact that the title quote hasn't always come from the winning team, I suspect that the quote is at least sometimes based on the best quote.

"Kisha & Jen: The team that argued with the deaf guy." These two just aren't being treated fairly. (:;)

No mention of Margie & Luke arguing with the sisters. :res:

Edit: Just kidding, missed the "bratty deaf guy" comment.

They were both at fault. I am a M/L fan but I can admit both teams are at fault. K/J shouldn't have laughed
whether or not it was at Luke and Margie should not have gone wild at the pitstop. Luke obviously wants
to prove he can do whatever an ordinary person can. We must all remember that he has a disability and even
though his brain functions perfectly, he is not aware of the world around him and only takes in using his eyes.
That said he needs to be a bit more respectful.

I agree they were both at fault.  Who can say if Kisha & Jen would have laughed at him while he was "speaking" if he could speak.  I could see them still  laughing if it was Victor and he was standing there arguing with them. I just found it interesting that Margie & Luke want the world to treat Luke equally, but it seems the first tme someone did in a negative light they started claiming foul.  They have to take the good with the bad I'm afraid.

It looks like a tight race from the previews.. anyone could win.

And the editors, finally had the brains.. not to include the teams FINAL RUN DOWN to the finishing line.. aka the Tyler and James and Nick and Starr winning screencap. :meow:
