The Amazing Race MK III

Episode 8
Title: I hate roses

Phil: Previously on The Amazing Race MK!!

Phil: Eight teams set out from tropical Tiny-Huge Island and raced to the land where Mario held his second party; Mario Land! Although faced with a tough Detour, teams had no idea what they’d be put through…for the Roadblock…

Monsieur: Picross!

Phil: As teams spent literally hours trying to complete a Picross puzzle…



Snufit: No! That’s another penalty!

Bombette: ARRGGHH!!! I HATE THIS!!

Bruce: Keep at it!

Phil: After over 4 hours of work…it was down to Flurrie & Doopliss and Birdo & Mouser…In the end, Flurrie & Doopliss managed to secure a fifth place finish, placing Birdo & Mouser in last. However, this was a non-elimination leg…and they’re still in the race. Eight teams remain…who will be eliminated…next?

The opening plays with no new Red “X”s.

Phil: Below us you can see the vast expanse of Northern Mario Land, a collection of many “lands” for Mario and his friends to party in! And hovering high in the upper atmosphere above it is this wondrous behemoth; a Bob-omb UFO! This was the seventh Pit Stop in a race around the MK! Teams arrived here for a mandatory rest period. Broque Monsieur & Broque Madame…who were the first team to arrive at 5:31…will depart…at 5:31 AM.


Monsieur: D’accord! “Exit zee UFO and find a launch star on zee top! Use it to launch yourself to zee Cosmic Cove Galaxy!”

Phil: Teams will now travel across the stars and visit the Cosmic Cove Galaxy, a mysterious cove planet with dark waterways. When teams arrive, they will find that the galaxy is currently in the middle of winter…

*Shot of the frozen waters*

Phil: When they land, they will find their next clue.

Monsieur: Oh mon dieu! (Oh my gosh!) I ‘ave been all around zee kingdom…but ‘ave never been into space!!

Madame: C’est incredible!!

Monsieur: Let’s go!

***Monsieur: We are leaving in first place again, because we are très awesome!

They climb up a ladder and end up on the top.

Madame: Wow! Look at zee planet down zere!

Monsieur: Oui…’ere ees zee launch star! Come! ‘op in like zis, twist your body, and…

He launches away.

Madame: WHOA!!! MON DIEU!! Wait for me!

She hops in and launches too. They fly across the sky.

We see a shot of the Cosmic Cove Galaxy. The waters are all frozen.

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Monsieur: Wooooo!! *Land* Oh…

Madame: *lands* Wow! C’est amazing!

***Madame: Eet was a waterway with tall walls on either side! Trés beaux! (Very beautiful!)

Madame: Oú est la clue? (Where is the clue?)

Monsieur: Zere! Grab a number!

He takes number 1.


Monsieur: Roadblock!

Phil: A Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform, and no one may do more than 6! In this Roadblock, teams will cross the icy waters until they find this large open area. Then…*Shot of two holes in the ice*…they must take a plunge into the icy waters. The chosen team member will swim under the ice until they reach this other hole. If they can perform this frozen feat…they will receive their next clue.

Monsieur: ‘o ‘as zee cold disposition?

Madame: Ummm…Me?

Monsieur: Vous can do eet!

Madame: *opens clue, reads* Hours of operation…6:00 AM to 11:00 PM…

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Hahaha!! Sounds like fun!

6:00 AM
The four teams slide across the ice and stop just before the underwater portion. There is a hole in the ice.

Broque Monsieur/Broque Madame -- Separated Couple
Madame: Oh mon dieu… What am I doing?

Boomerang: Are you really doing this?

Hammer: Yeah! Hahaha!

Bombette/Bruce -- Newly Dating
Bruce: I… Wow… This ice is cold…

Bombette: The water’s probably colder…

Bruce: Gee, thanks!

***Raz: We were so focused on swimming through an ice hole that we barely paid attention to the fact that we weren’t even on our planet anymore…

Raini: I’m scared for him!

***Raini: This was crazy!

*Shots of safety crews, ice cutters and medical tents*

***Boomerang: I mean, this was serious! Someone could really get hurt if they did this wrong!

***Hammer: I didn’t even look at the water while I waited…

*Shots of the four team members getting a medical exam*

Medic: Have you ever had a heart attack?

Madame: Non…

Medic: Any asthma problems?

Raz: Nope!

***Madame: -and jumped!

*Sploosh* Broque Madame falls into the water with a flurry of bubbles, then immediately begins swimming through the underwater cave.

The other teammates have been moved to the other side.

Monsieur: Oh…’ere she comes!

***Madame: I wanted to gasp at ‘ow cold eet was…but I couldn’t! I was under zee water!

Monsieur: D’accord…d’accord…

We see a shot of her propelling herself through the water as quickly as she can.

Monsieur: Come on!! Allez-vous!!


Madame: *gasp*

Monsieur: There she ees! There ees my wife!!!


The others are clapping.

Monsieur: Very good! Come warm up!

The medics put towels on her and she stands in front of a heater, shivering.

Monsieur: Vous did so well, ma cherí! Way to go!

Madame: Zat was frigid! So cold!

***Monsieur: Eventually she warmed up and we were ready to go!


Monsieur: Very good! “Find zee Launch Star to take you to zee Starshine Beach Galaxy!”

Phil: Teams must now search the frozen quadrants of the Cosmic Cove Galaxy to find this Launch Star, which will take them to the Starshine Beach Galaxy. Once they land, they will receive their next clue.

*Shot of a clue box and a Speed Bump*

Monsieur: Bon! Let’s go!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raini: Gosh, it’s Razzie’s turn!

Raz is breathing deeply.

***Raz: Just the anticipation of jumping into that frigid water…it was probably about 20 degrees Fahrenheit…

Raz: Okay…

***Raz: But I knew I had to do it, so…


***Raz: Oh my gosh, I’ve never been so cold in my life. My body wanted to just give up and drown, but I kept going!

Raini: Is that him? Oh my gosh, here he comes!

***Raz: I just kept pushing until I was at the end.

***Doopliss: I hate roses…

Flurrie: C’mon up! I see the launch star!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends

They fly in and land at the “beginning” of the galaxy.

Monsieur: Wow!!! Eet ees so warm!

Madame: Much better zan zee Cosmic Cove!

Monsieur: ‘Ere ees zee clue! Haha! Look at zee Speed Bump!


Monsieur: Detour!

Phil: A Detour is a choice between two tasks! Each with its own pros and cons!

*Overhead shot of the Beach*

Phil: Starshine Beach has long been a popular vacation destination! Its pristine beaches and crystal clear water ensures that everyone will have a spectacular vacation. In addition to the stunning scenery, the Beach is also home to many Yoshis, who are also popular with tourists. Now teams must choose between Dash and Blimp. In Dash, team members will each get on a Yoshi and must search the beach for these Dash Peppers. Once fed to the Yoshis, they cause an extreme burst in speed. Teams must ride their speeding Yoshis across this water and around this tower without falling off. They must also grab one of these flags hanging above. If successful, they will receive their next clue. In Blimp, teams also get on some Yoshis and must search the beach for this Blimp Fruit. THIS fruit, once fed to the Yoshis, causes the body to swell up with air and float. Teams must ride their floating Yoshis up to this clue suspended in the air by balloons.

Madame: Dash or Blimp?
Monsieur: Oh…Riding Yoshis…

***Monsieur: We, uh…aren’t very good at riding Yoshis.

***Madame: We…cannot fit een zee saddle very well…

Monsieur: Hmm…I suppose Dash would be better for us.

Madame: D’accord.

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: *transforms back* Ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygosh… SO COLD!

Flurrie: How cold was it?


Flurrie: I see…Heh heh heh…


Doopliss: Oh great! Starshine Beach!

Flurrie: The beach?! I haven’t got my sunblock.

Doopliss: Ugh…Come on!!!

Flurrie: Yeah, yeah!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Oh man…I guess it’s my turn…Everyone else is gone, we’re in last place…and we still have that Speed Bump…This had better be WORTH IT!!


***Mouser: The cold water was paaiinnful! It felt like my heart wanted to stop!

Birdo: Is Mouser coming yet?

***Mouser: Once I actually thought I wasn’t going to make it…but I kept going…

Birdo: Is that him? C’mon!!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Doopliss: Is this it?

Flurrie: No…We can’t find this launch star!

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: AAAGGHHHH!! Get me out please!!!

Birdo: Wow…He actually said “please”…Must be REALLY cold!

Mouser: Ohhh..goosshhh…

***Mouser: It took a while for my body temperature to…rise back up

Mouser: Who DOES this kind of thing?

Birdo and four medics: Mario.

Mouser: Ha ha, funny.

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: Oh! Back there, Doopliss!

Doopliss: You found it? Great! Let’s take it before Mouser gets out of the medic tent!

They hop in, spin, and launch.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: I just heard Doopliss flying away…

Mouser: C-c-c-c-cool…

Birdo: Heh…You said “cool”.

Mouser: Sh-sh-sh-sh-shut up…

Raz: Got it!

*Flying sounds*
Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: Okay, here we are…

Hammer Bro./Boomerang Bro. -- Partners
Hammer: Oh, man! Look! Birdo and Mouser are here!

Boomerang: What?!

Flurrie/Doopliss -- Actress/Actor
Flurrie: You cannot be serious.

Doopliss: We left ages before they did…

Hammer: Have we really been here that long?

Boomerang: Apparently.

Hammer: Ugghhh…

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Mouser: Okay, you see what we’re supposed to do?

Birdo: Uh, DUH!!

*Shot of the Speed Bump*

Phil: Having been spared elimination in the previous leg, Birdo & Mouser have now hit a Speed Bump; an extra task that only they must complete. In this Speed Bump, Birdo & Mouser must retrieve their Detour information clue from the top of this large tower. However, it is situated in the middle of the water, and the only entrance is located below the surface. Once they reach the top, they may take this Sling Star back down to the beach, in the hope of making up this valuable lost time.

Mouser: Speed Bump…We gotta get up that big tower over there!

Birdo: Well…let’s go!

Raz/Raini -- Newlyweds
Raz: C’mon! Grab it!

Raini: Here…it…comes…!

She reaches up.

Birdo/Mouser -- Partners/Best Friends
Birdo: I suppose this is the tower…

Mouser: Gee! Ya think?!

Birdo: Dude…Do not start with me now…We’re kinda catching up to the teams now, so let’s not blow it.

Mouser: Right…Where’s the entrance?

Birdo: Down there…in the water!

Mouser: Oh, man!! I just got through a swimming challenge!

Birdo: C’mon you big baby!

Mouser: *sigh*

They both jump into the water. *Splash* *Splash*

The Yoshis turn back to green and come to a complete stop.

*Shot of the impressive tree*

Phil: …the Tall Trunk Galaxy! Then, they must make their way here!

*Shot of the Pit Stop Mat*

Raz: And find Phil on the mat!

Raini: Come on! Pit Stop! WOOOO!!!
