This race started and ended in the same place: Chicago, Illinois.

After being eliminated, Aaron gets down on one knee and asks Hayden to marry him, and she says yes. This is the first time there has been a proposal on The Amazing Race.
Freddy & Kendra arrived at the finish line, only seven minutes before Kris & Jon.

All of the teams that won individual legs during the season had an overall finish no lower than fifth.
In Hawaii, this Roadblock required one team member to skydive 11,000 feet in tandem with an instructor, landing on a sandbar where their next clue waited.
Jon, Adam and Freddy took the plunge for their teams.
Roadblock: (China) At Mount Hua, China, one team member had to take a unique key given to them in the clue envelope and find the specific lock that it opened, out of 3,000 locks fastened to the top of the mountain by couples as a symbol of their internal love. Teams were required to complete the task before the last gondola departed at 7 P.M.
Kris, Kendra, Rebecca and Hayden all elected to perform the task for their teams. The first three eventually found their locks, but after a long search with no luck, Hayden gave up and accepted the four hour penalty for their team, a decision that ultimately led to their elimination. Rebecca also had almost given up because it was approaching 7 P.M., when the last gondola was schedule to leave. At the last moment, Rebecca opened her lock.
Kris/Jon chose "Outfits", where they drove ten miles to a clothing store, searched it for the clothing matching that on a mannequin, then put it on themselves to get their clue.
Freddy/Kendra and Adam/Rebecca chose "Outriggers", where they drove six miles to a boat club and had to navigate an outrigger canoe along a two-mile course.
All teams chose "Spray", where they travelled 34 miles to a car factory, then had to spray paint the body of a car to receive their next clue.
No team chose "Scroll", where they would have travelled 31 miles to then search bolts of fabric for some Chinese characters.
At the start of the episode, Phil introduced Shang Hai as the 11th Pit Stop of the race. In actualitly, it was the 10th because the double leg in Budapest, which threw the count off. At the start of the second half, he introduced Xi'an which was actually the 11th Pit Stop.
Rebecca: I'm destroying my hands doing this. My hands will never be the same. I'll never be a hand model.
Freddy: God, Kris and Jon opened the lock on the very first try. They must have an angel sitting on them.
Adam: Come on, Rebecca! A monkey can open a lock!
Rebecca: (singing and dancing while trying keys in locks) Lucky key! Woo woo! Lucky key! Woo woo!
Adam: Rebecca, stop dancing and open a lock.
Rebecca: (muttering) I don't like the Key Nazi over there.
Hayden: Aaron, I need you to get a little excited. I'm upset and I need you to do something about it.
Aaron: (emotionless) We're at the mercy of the cab driver.
Kris: I'm just a raging bitch.
Adam: Your raging bitch is like her (Rebecca) on a very nice day.
Kendra: Some of these locks must be from the year 2.
Kris: This is cozy. I think that Jon was worried that I would be miserable and be a raging bitch.
Adam: A "raging bitch"? That's her (pointing to Rebecca) leg on a really nice day.
Kendra: (regarding Freddy) This man is worthy of having my children.
Rebecca: (about their cab driver in China) I can say anything to this guy and he won't understand what I'm saying. (pointing to Adam) He has three testicles. (The cab driver smiles and nods.)
Freddy: (on Kendra) I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with this woman.
Phil: Four continents, 24 cities and more than 40,000 miles. Freddy and Kendra, you are the official winners of The Amazing Race.
Freddy: (to cab driver) There's $20. Run the light.
Adam: I don't eat tomatoes.
Rebecca: I don't eat cheese.
Freddy: It's a million dollar pizza.
Kendra: I can't do it. This is disgusting.
Rebecca: I keep hoping another team will emerge from the bush.
Freddy: You're killing me, honey.
Freddy: You just threw water all over me.
Kendra: Why is that killing you?
Aaron: Will you marry me?
Hayden: Oh God, yes.
Phil: (regarding the first-half finish) This is a very strange situation, you guys.
Rebecca: What's the definition of insanity? Isn't it doing the same thing and expecting different results? I've been doing the same thing for hours, so I am definitely insane.
Hayden: I'm about ready to use my teeth. Oop. My key broke.
Adam: (regarding Kris and Jon) They're making out in the gondola.
Rebecca: (regarding the Roadblock key) Why is this going in and not turning? That's such a tease.
Adam: This has been the worst day ever. I hate China.
Adam: Honey, you're doing great.
Rebecca: Shut up.
Aaron: You know what? If we're out of it, we're out of it. There is more important things in life than any amount of money.
Hayden: Where are we gonna get a cab? You wanna walk to the mountain?
Adam: We're going to be #1 today. I had a feeling last night.
Kendra: We probably totally just got killed in this whole race.
Rebecca: I was thinking of moving to Shang Hai and begging on the streets because it's very lucrative.
Freddy: You are mean.
Kendra: I am not mean.
Freddy: But you look cute.
This was the first season to offer a prize to a team that finished in first place on every leg of the race.
This was the first time that scenes for the next season were shown after the final commercial break on the season finale. This is likely due to the extremely short break between seasons.
In every finale, when announcing the winners, Phil always gives a one-sentence recap of their travels. This is the first time it's used as a title quote.
Seventh season begins just three weeks later, on March 1
Two hour finale
Adam: I feel like Michael Keaton in Gung Ho.
Gung Ho was an acclaimed 1986 comedy about Michael Keaton as a liason for a Japanese car company which bought out an American plant.
