PREVIOUSLY ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:

Phil: Seven teams left Italy, drove across Sicily. In Catania, Fran/Barry panicked in a gridlock. Eric/Jeremy and BJ/Tyler surged ahead with 35-pound swordfish, while Monica broke down. On the Roadblock, Lake taunted Michele. Then, Dave/Lori bickered and quickly made amends. But their support for each other couldn't save them from elimination.

Six teams remain. Who will be eliminated next?

Phil: This is Siracusa, Italy. Founded by Greeks in 734BC it was once the most powerful city in the Mediterranean. Will Lake/Michelle's emotions continue to boil over? Will BJ/Tyler's carefree ways keep them in front?

10:33 pm, E/J, CLUE: Take a train to Rome.
Phil: At the Trevi Fountain, they'll search for the man with the yellow/red scooter for the next clue.

BJ/Tyler, time covered by the closed captioning. Oops!

Then, Joseph/Monica.

Fran/Barry, 11:53 pm.

Train station isn't open until ... 4 AM.
First train leaves 8 am.
EQUALIZER!

Lake/Michele 12:17 am.
Michele: Let's go, babe. The 8 am train to Rome.
Now, how did she know and the others didnt?

Did Lake just call Michele a bitch? 

Teams arrive one by one to find the equalizer.

Ray/Yo, 1:02 am, CLUE: Yeah, we rollin! We have to play the game from bottom up, take out one team at a time.

The teams arrive.
Ray: We haven't seen you guys in so long!

Phil: All teams now traveling by train and ferry to ROME.

In ROME ...

Teams get off the train and head for the metro.
Underground, asking directions.
Some teams take taxis.
Fran: M. Metro.
No shit? 

Ray/Yo get their Metro directions, apparently in last.

First to see scooter man, E/J, CLUE: Keep everything with you.
Phil: Teams must make their way less thana mile for the horse carriages at the Spanish Steps. In the spirit of the DaVinci Code, teams have been given one part of the Vetruvian Man. They have to crack the code at the pitstop for a prize.

Monica: I've wanted to come here (Trevi) my entire life!
They're in 2nd.

Bj/Tyler and Fran/Barry see the sign "Fontana di Trevi."
BJ/T 3rd, Lake/Michelle4th, Fran/Barry 5th. Ray/Yo 6th.

E/J, CLUE: Fly to Athens.
Phil: Here in the heart of the city, on the grounds of this old marketplace, the next clue.
They've got another piece to "try and crack the code."
They've done it!
First team to the pitstop with the solution wins a prize.

Joe/Moni get the clue in 2nd, head for the airport.
Bj/Tyler, Fran/Barry and Lake/Michelle next.
Ray/Yo haven't made it to the horse carriages yet.
Finally they arrive at the steps and head for the airport.

Ray, in taxi: I"mma have to come back to these shops and buy something after I win this million bucks!

BJ/Tyler and E/J at the airport, then the other lead teams, all at ticket counters.
Man: 7:25 pm is the only flight.
Fran: Grazie.
Ray/Yo arrive at the airport.
Ray: Next available.
They get the 7:25.
Phil: All teams now flying to Athens, Greece.

In Athens ...
Looking for Ancient Agora.
Ray, talking about the taxi: We got the yellow benz. You see it?

Monica: Ray/Yolanda are all business. All about the Race. All the time.

All six teams head for the Ancient Agora ... and they figure it out ... another Equalizer.
Opens 8 am.

Morning, 8 am, all teams looking for the cluebox in the rain.

FAST FORWARD.
Phil: First of only two in the Race. Each team can use the FF only once, so they must decide when it's advantageous to go for it. Travel on foot to this restaurant, a mile away, and break clay until they find the route marker baked into ONLY ONE of these hundreds of plates.

Monica: We should do it!
Ray/Yo, other clue: Teams must tarvel by train to Corinth and head to Isthmus Station for the next clue.
E/J want the FF.
Fran/Barry want the FF.
Lake/Michelle decide to head for the train station.
BJ/Tyler and Ray/Yo take a bus toward the station.
Monica and Joe start breaking plates.
Eric/Jeremy arrive behind them, and see them.
Joe: Pick up the pace!

Plates.Breaking.Everywhere.

Eric/Jeremy luck out.
Monica: DAMMIT.
Joe: We have the crappiest luck!
CLUE, E/J: Drive yourselves to the next pitstop.
Phil: The Fortress of Rion, on the Greek coast.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BJ/T and Ray/Yo arrive ... but where are the other three teams?
BJ/T: Either going for the FF, or may the Gods help them.
Monica, standing in the rain, attempting to catch a cab: We're out of it.
Joe: Dammit.

Rain ... panicking ...
M: We're out of it.
Joe: We're NOT. You're not helping matters out by getting down. Lift up your spirit before I get pissed!

Barry laments the fact that they can't run for taxis as fast as the other teams.
Barry: So we fall behind. It sucks.

Monica in the train station, bawling her brains out.
In walk Fran/Barry.
Conf, MOnica: We know we can beat them!

Arriving in Corinth, Ray/Yo and BJ/T.
THey ask: Is this Isthmus Station?
Man: NO.
 
Michele: We were supposed to stay on the train.

Finally they take a bus and arrive at Isthmus Station.
Trouble reading Greek? 
BJ/T, Ray/Yo, Lake/Mich, CLUE: ROADBLOCK. Who wants to hear the sound of their own scream?
Phil: Bungee jump 240 feet into the Corinth Canal. Once the racer has finished, they get the next clue.

Teams line up for bungeeeeee!
THe final two teams arrive right behind.
MOnica: Bungee! YY!
Fran: I'll do it.

At the Zulu Bungy ... teams pick numbers to determine their order.
Fran, picking the last number: I do not want to bungee. I'm scared.
Then why did you volunteer!?
Man, to Ray: I'll say 3, 2, 1, then you dive off.
Ray: OOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Yo: Aiight Ray!
Ray: I'm like Superman. Now if he'll bring me up! I gotta go win this Race!

Ray: DETOUR.
Phil: Herculean effort, or It's All Greek to Me.
Herc: Complete 3 events. Discus and javelin (competitive distances), then both take on a competitive wrestler and push him outside the circle.
Greek: Search an Archaeological site for 9 pieces of shard with greek letters. Put them in order, to spell out a location for the next clue.

BJ/Tyler finish after Ray/Yo, get DETOUR clue.
Michele goes next.
Then Joe/Monica, then Fran/Barry.
But Fran is literally shaking with fear.
Joe: Fran it's such a good ride.
Moni: Fran, we love you. Don't think about it. Just do it.

Teams seem to be choosing the Olympic Games.

Fran: Omigod. I'm scared.
Finally she's ready ...
Fran, high above the earth: It's pulling me! Pulling me! Oh, God! I"m so scared! Oh, God! I'm scared!

Fran: I'm scared!
Barry: This is the 1 thing she didn't want to do.
Finally she falls ... shrieking all the way.
Barry: Way to go!
Fran: Oh, God!
Barry: Sixty-one years old!
Fran: The most scared I've ever been in my life!
They leave in last, to do the dig/shard/word thingy.

Michelle: The map is all in Greek.
Lake: DAMMIT!
Michele: Stop yelling and cursing at me, like I did something wrong! Take the map back.
Lake slams her arm back into the back seat.
They ask for directions. A local assists.

Driving past a Shell station ... the Fortress!
Man: Welcome to Greece.
Phil: E/J, you're team #1. The Code? Hand it over. As the first team to bring in the famous drawing, you'll be walking down the red carpet at the premiere of the Da Vinci Code, May 19.

Meanwhile, Ray/Yo arrive at the outdoor stadium.
Looking at the scantily clad wrestlers, Yo: They're two big guys! 
She does discus just fine. (Track star, she!)
Ray takes a quick lesson in javelin.

Lake/Michele need to stop again.
L: Didn't you listen to anything she said?
M: Shut the hell up!

Ray does a Brandon, and fliffs the javelin pathetically.
Yolanda: Don't worry!

Monica does discus, after a couple, she succeeds.
Ray: Oh, god.
Joe isn't doing much better.
Monica: Glad I didn't pick this one!

At the Dig site ...
Fran: I thought it was on this.
Barry: Here's a T. This is one.
They have 9 lickety-split.
They will form an English!! word.
Lake/Michelle also arrive at the Dig site.
Lake: There they are, just laying there!
Michelle: I got an H. Another H. A Delta.
Lake: Hell, yeah!

BJ/Tyler, lost: Where are we!?
Man: Wrong way. It's THIS way. 
BJ/T: Omigod. How far away are we? TWO HOURS LOST! This is it. We're done.

BJ/T: We're officially two hours behind. Gotta hope it's NEL.

Ray flips the javelin a few more times, then Joe succeeds and Joe/Monica move on to the wrestling.

Another weak fliff of the javelin for Ray ...

Fran/Barry and Lake/Michelle trying to decipher the letters and make them mean something.

Michelle: I can't believe Barry/Fran. They're just better than us.
Lake: SHUT UP!

Joe prepares to take on a huge wrestler. At least they both can compete against dude at the same time.
Joe/Monica make short work of dude, and CLUE: Drive yourselves to the next pitstop, Fortress, yadda yadda.

Phil: Last team to check in may be eliminated.
Another weak throw for Ray, but it's long enough.
Now they move on to wrestling.
They grab an arm each, and take dude down.
Yo: We got beat by Mojo, which is a big nono!

Barry: Nine letters.
Fran: Two i's.
Barry: This may be harder than the NYTimes Crossword.
Lake: Sigma.
Michelle: Two H's.
Lake: SHUT UP. Damn, this is hard.

They look at a map and compare the names of places to what they have.
Fran/Barry get the pitstop CLUE.
It's Dimitsana.
Lake/Michelle get it next, and both teams head off in suv's for the pitstop.
Lake: Find it on the map.
Michelle: It's a FORTRESS. It won't be on the map.

Backing up, Barry backs into the tree! 
OUCH!
Shattered glass everywhere ... the tailgate's toast.
Fran: I didn't see it.
Barry drives away.
