They get up late and are very tired and hung over. They head back to Madison Square Garden for the makeup and outfits. They're not too happy since it's really early. They speed in a cab to the NBC studios since there is only 15 minutes left of The Today Show. They go up to the glass but security makes them back up. Finally, a cameraman comes outside and mission 10 is completed since they get on the air. Mark kisses an old lady that he doesn't know to get some airtime. Kit bumps into Dickie and another lady who are old friends. When they get back to Madison Square Garden, the ringleader gives them their next clue. He tells them they're going to Quantico, Virginia for boot camp. They all go to Alison's house in Long Island. By then, Los is tired of New York and of Alison. Her mom makes a big dinner and Alison complains about the tight living quarters. Her mom is bothered that Alison curses. Los is attracted to Margaret, Alison's sister. Alison's mom shares stories about Alison as a little girl. Her mom thinks that Carlos is a beautiful name and he has ruined it by shortening it. He tells her she ruined it by not saying it in a Spanish accent and gives her attitude. Everyone is happy about the dinner and hospitality.
They leave to go to their next destination--Quantico, Virginia. Kit is afraid of driving in Manhattan and gives the wheel up to Mark. Alison asks Los about what happened with her mom. She says that her mom didn't realize that she was offending him but she shouldn't of given her an attitude. She also says that no one in his family has ever said Carlos with a Spanish accent. Los says she was making a crack at him and was just trying to be funny. They arrive at Quantico at the Officer's Training School for the Marine Corps. At the entrance, Shelley is asked for identification but she left everything in New York. They meet up with Captain Dutch Weitcher who tells them they have a lot in store for them and they will enjoy the day.
