Hey, Gerry, the path.

God. It is so...

Yeah.

It is really nice, man.

Fresh air.

- You ready?

- Nope.

- Hi, guys.

- Hey.

Hiking moms on the trail?

It's just gonna be.

It's alI tourists up there.

Well, how far is the thing?

We're haifway there.

Let's go this way, man.

Everything's gonna lead

to the same place.

- Just loop around?

- Yeah.

Do our own fresh route?

I can't believe that, like,

fucking fanny packs

and sing-alongs

the whole way to the thing.

Fuck it, dude.

Fuck this.

- Fuck the thing?

- Fuck the thing.

Power on to the thing!

- Fuck the thing.

- Fuck the thing!

It's just gonna be

a fuckin' thing at the end.

- Fuck the thing!

- Fuck the thing.

Let's go back.

Fuck the thing.

Hey, is this the way we...

Yeah. That's it.

Right?

Yeah.

Hold on.

Is this the way we were going?

- Yeah. This is it.

- Yeah.

So...

She thought it was a "Y"?

- Who? The contestant?

- Yeah.

Yep.

She had every letter

except for the "L".

She had "B-A-R-R-E,"

blank, "I-N-G

down the road. "

"B-A-R-R-E," blank,

"I-N-G down the road. "

And alI she had was "L"

for "barreling down the road. "

And they were like, "Do you

want to solve the puzzle?"

Because you have to when -

When you have one letter left,

you have to solve.

You're not allowed -

Because you're only spinning

to drive up your earnings.

Right.

So it's like cheating if there's

only one letter left.

And so they told her

to solve it, and she said...

"Barreying down the road?"

And there's this

really uncomfortable pause,

and Sajak was like, "No.

Kenny?"

And the next dude did it.

But for zero dollars

because he couldn't spin.

He was just like,

"Barreling down the road. "

I hate you.

- Not really, though, right?

- Not really.

It's just really hot on my front

and really cold on my back.

There's a man

perched on the ledge...

10 feet in front of us.

Don't look.

I see you, man.

Do you hear that?

There's a lot of dinosaurs

near here.

I conquered Thebes.

When?

Two weeks ago.

How'd you do it?

Well, I got...

I did more than that, actually.

I said to Gerry...

"I ruled this land

for 97 years, and... "

"... and I'd like it. "

I had alI the sanctuaries built,

and then I...

This hot lava leaked out

of a volcano

and haif destroyed my sanctuary

to Demeter, I guess it was.

And...

But I didn't have the marble to

rebuild, like, the sculptures

and that to fix the sanctuary.

But I already had

alI these docks

to, like, Calydon

and Argos and...

I had everything.

Everything.

I was trading

with, like, 12 cities

and...

I had a really good army.

But the river had just flooded.

And it flooded out,

like, four of my docks,

and I couldn't import the marble

to rebuild the sanctuary.

Demeter got pissed off, and

she made my fields infertile.

And then...

So I couldn't grow the grass.

I couldn't grow the wheat

to feed the horses.

And there was no...

I couldn't -

And there was nowhere

for the sheep to graze.

And some of my people were

growing hungry and restless,

and then...

And I couldn't trade

because the rivers had flooded.

And so, Knossos,

one of my vassals,

got really upset with me

and turned against me.

And they... attacked me.

And because I couldn't

train any sheep

'cause I didn't have the wheat.

I didn't have...

I didn't have a, um, a...

You couldn't train sheep?

I couldn't train the horses

because I didn't have wheat.

And so when they attacked me,

they just dogged me.

And I actually went to send

my army out to defend the city,

and you can only send them out

if you have 12 trained horses,
