  • Quotes

    • Kandice: (at the ticket counter at the airport) For privacy reasons, could you not mention that you saw two blondes.
      Clerk: What color is blonde?

    • Kandice: (when arriving at the final Pit Stop) Yup, we didn't win. Damn.

    • Dustin: (after seeing Charla and Mirna arrive earlier at the first task) I had a feeling they're gonna be here.
      Kandice: How did they do that?
      Dustin: I have no idea!

    • Dustin: (at the Hawaii airport) Charla and Mirna, they're here now.
      Kandice: Maybe we should listen.

    • Charla: (at the Detour )It's not that hard!
      Mirna: Yeah? It's not that hard 'cause you're much shorter than me.
      Charla: Trust me, it's not that hard!

    • Mirna: (after completing the Detour) Have you done this before?
      Charla: Low to the ground, that's my technique!

    • Danielle: I guess opposites attract and in this case, our opposites got us through the race.

    • Phil: 28 days, five continents, more than 45,000 miles. Eric and Danielle, you are the official winners of The Amazing Race. You have won the one million dollars.

    • Mirna: We will always find a way to use our mental abilities to get ahead.

    • Kandice: Dustin, out there on the water, you were not a good teammate. You were about Dustin and that's it.

    • Kandice: (in a voiceover interview) Dustin sometimes blocks out things that I'm saying and doesn't really listen. I feel extreme frustration from this and I feel that doesn't really help the team at all.

    • Mirna: (as Eric and Danielle's chartered helicopter arrives) That's Eric and Danielle to the left on the plane, arriving.

    • Mirna: 9 A.M. There's only a ten minute difference per team. That's not a very big lead.

    • Mirna: Okay, we have almost two hours time that we have to make up if we wanna win one million dollars.

    • Phil: (voiceover, recapping the season) Along the way, the best of the best battled the elements, health issues and each other.
