When You Gotta Go, You Gotta Go is the second episode of The Amazing Race 25.
The order of departure from Fort Christian are as follows:
Teams must make their way to Cyril E. King Airport and fly to London, England, United Kingdom, on one of two provided flights. The first flight could carry the first six teams, while the second flight would carry the last four teams. Upon arrival, teams must take a taxi to the Tower Bridge, where they would receive their next clue from a Pearly King and Queen.
Choice A: About Face
Teams must make their way to the Somerset House, where they must dress in traditional Queen's Guard outfits before learning a piece of choreography used from the traditional Changing of the Guard ceremonies, then perform the steps to the satisfaction of the parade commander in order to receive their next clue.
Adam & Bethany, Dennis & Isabelle, Keith & Whitney, and Michael & Scott chose this task.
Choice B: Pancake Race
Teams must make their way to the Victoria Tower Gardens, where they must participate in the annual Parliamentary Pancake Race. Each team member must first cook a pancake to the head chef's satisfaction, then participate in a race where they must run one lap around a course while flipping their pancake, without it falling from their frying pan, in a time of 1 minute and 15 seconds to receive their next clue. If the pancake falls from their pan, they run out of time to complete the race, or they are judged to not have flipped their pancakes enough, they must make new pancakes before being allowed to race again.
Teams must punt a boat, with one member rowing the punt while standing on the Cambridge End at the back of the punt, while the other member stands on the Oxford End, the front of the punt, waving a small Union Jack. Once they have successfully punted around Magdalen College Island on the River Cherwell, they would receive their next clue from the punting master at the boathouse.
Teams must make their way to Tom Quad at Christ Church College, where they would be given a bowler hat and an umbrella, which they must bring with them to the Pit Stop. Teams must open their umbrellas, in which they are given an opportunity to search Oxford for the Bear Inn to retrieve the Express Pass, or tip their bowler hats, which would reveal their next clue. Adam & Bethany won the Express Pass.
