And then this week, when I have no time to write whatsoever, Amazing Race is chock full of great quotes.
First, not a quote, but let me say that I can't stand the Weavers and their sour grapes. No one wants to be friends with them (and every clip of them expalins why - they're constantly complaining, negative, and rude to the other teams), yet they're constantly shown whining, "No one likes us." And then saying "We wouldn't want to be friends with them anyway," "No way, we're better than that."
I wonder (and often wonder when watching reality tv) whether they'll end up watching this and saying, "Wow, we're really worse than we thought, maybe we're the ones who should change." But I guess the same people who can misbehave in this way on television and blame it on everyone else probably just won't ever get it. (And, it's different from reality tv contestants who are purposely misbehaving for some kind of notoriety - The Weavers seem to be genuinely perplexed about why nobody likes them.)
Anyway, now for the quotes: There were many many to choose from this week, so first, here's a runner-up:
Weaver Mom: "Utah is the Mormon state."
One of those annoying kids: "Aah! No wonder..."
WTF? Did anyone get this? Is it possible that there was more to this quote that we didn't see or hear?
And... the winner is... Your Amazing Race Moment of Zen:
This quote is from the Linz Family (referring to The Weavers, that annoying Florida family):
One Linz: The wicked witch of the east and her 3 little monkeys.
Another Linz (imitating the Weaver mom): Those Linzes are just nasty!
Third Linz: Someone's gonna come and drop a house on her head.
