Good Thing I Took That Human Anatomy Class in High School is the fifth episode of The Amazing Race 9.
Competition heats up in Italy when Teams must reconstruct broken statues in order to get their next clue.
One duo gets lost on their way to the road block and ends up at the pit stop instead. During a detour, teams frantically try to locate a marked item of clothing among 2,400 pieces of laundry. The pressure of the race intensifies and one team member has a meltdown while trying to assemble a statue.
The order of departure from the Siegestor are as follows:
Choice A: Foundry
Teams must walk to a nearby metal works called Premiata Fonderia Birrione Campane at 8 Via Renda and pick up a 110-pound (50 kg) iron-cast bell. Then, using a vehicle known as a Piaggio Ape, they must drive the bell, drop-off at Via Don Leonardo Zangara, and carry it to a priest at Chiesa Maria SS. Del Soccorso to receive their next clue.
Choice B: Laundry
Teams must walk to Corso Giuseppe Garibaldi and search through over 2,400 items of laundry for one of only 16 items of clothing bearing a red and yellow tag. Once the marked item of clothing is found, teams must hand it to the laundry lady to receive their next clue.
Teams must drive themselves to Segesta and walk to the Teatro di Segesta, where they would find their next clue.
"Who's good at piecing things together?"
