I think Tim and Marie took the risk of making it by their own. In this circumstance, I understand there was not a major benefit. If it was a final leg, with the million right there, it would be another thing. So, I think it's not bad done.
If I see a taxi without bags INSIDE, whhy do I have to go to search for another one? I am in a race, yeah, and Timarie had already had some trouble with taxi finding prior in the leg. I would've done it if necessary.
