Rob and Amber received a letter from Susan and Patrick from the seventh season for their Roadblock. Rob revealed later that he didn't even remember who Susan and Patrick were until they got home and looked it up on the Internet.
So far, this is Danielle's highest finish ever. She only finished as high as eighth in the ninth season (with Dani).
Rob and Amber finished in eighth (and last) on this leg, the lowest they've ever finished. Their previous lowest finish was fifth place, which occurred on the third and fifth legs of the seventh season. Additionally, their eighth-place finish marks Amber's lowest reality show finish. Previously, it was her sixth-place finish in Survivor: Australian Outback.
Roadblock: The Roadblock in this episode required one member of each team to take on the duties of a postal worker. That member was required to sort through 1,600 envelopes, searching for one of two letters addressed to his or her team. Each letter was written to them by another team from their original season. Oswald and Danny received a letter from Blake and Paige. Eric and Danielle received a letter from Jeremy and Dani. Teri and Ian received a letter from Flo and Zach. Joe and Bill received a letter from Frank Mesa of Frank and Margarita. Dustin and Kandice received a letter from Lyn of Lyn and Karlyn. Charla and Mirna received a letter from Marshall and Lance. Both Uchenna and Joyce and Rob and Amber received a letter from Susan and Patrick.
Detour: Teams in this episode were given a Detour choice of either Navigate it or Sign It. In Navigate It, teams were required to navigate by map to a town plaza and then use a compass to find the Nautilus Building. In Sign It, they chose a pole and building supplies and then built a traditional local signpost featuring the cities visited on the legendary journey of Ferdinand Magellan, making sure to spell all cities correctly. Eric/Danielle, Teri/Ian, Oswald/Danny, and Joe/Bill all opted to complete Navigate It. Rob/Amber struggled in Detour. Rob didn't spell Philippines correctly, instead, he wrote it as Philipeans. So, after spending a good 30 minutes in their task, they opted to shift to Navigate it. Uchenna/Joyce had difficulty at first. They didn't know where Ferdinand Magellan came from. They thought he started his journey in Guam. But, it was from Seville, his starting and finish point. Nevertheless, Uchenna and Joyce successfully completed Sign It. Rob/Amber, Dustin/Kandice, and Charla/Mirna, who initially selected Sign It, got frustrated with the task and they all ended up choosing to complete Navigate It.
Balance Sheet: Oswald and Danny rose from fifth to first. Eric and Danielle rose from third to second. Teri and Ian also gained ground, moving up from sixth to third. Joe and Bill gained three positions, rising from seventh to fourth. Dustin and Kandice fell from fourth place to fifth. Uchenna and Joyce dropped from second place to sixth. Charla and Mirna rose from eighth place to seventh. Rob and Amber plummeted from first place to last and were eliminated from the race.

Mirna: (reading a letter from Marshall and Lance) You say that you speak five languages, but it turns out you can't even speak English. (stops reading) Oh really!!
Eric: (reading letter) "Love Jeremy and Dani. No babies on the race."
Oswald: Wow-wee Maui!
Danny: Will you come with us?
Phil: That's a whole different reality show.
Mirna: As an attorney, I know when somebody's lying.
Mirna: (to Rob after she completed her Roadblock) See ya, don't wanna be ya.
Phil: (to Joe and Bill) Could you guys be any more in love?
Uchenna: We're taking the boat with Rob and Amber. Our old friends.
Rob: "Friends" is being used loosely by Uchenna.
Oswald: I only snore when I drink excessively.
Danielle: Where the hell are Rob and Amber?
Eric: Who cares, I just hope they are really lost.
Amber: They actually believed me telling them the clue was down there? That's just dumb.
Amber: And to tell you the truth --- what a better place to end this race than the end of the world.
Uchenna: (to Charla and Mirna) Way to keep it up, way to never quit. And that's the key to this game.
Rob: (reading letter from Susan and Patrick) Hopefully this letter finds you lost, broke, hungry, in last place.
Joyce: (reading letter from Susan and Patrick) Don't trust you-know-who. Love you. Believe in you.
Uchenna: I felt the tension of competition. After the Charla and Mirna lie, I felt the desire to beat Rob and Amber.
Rob: (regarding Charla and Mirna) They're out of their minds if they thought I was letting them in.
Charla: I called for a taxi.
Rob: You're crazy.
Ian: Teri, would you please come with me?
Ian: Please come with me.
Amber: Admit that you wanna be in first.
Rob: I wanna be in first.
Rob: For one of the first times in the race, Amber and I aren't at the front of the pack. It's kind of frustrating.
Mirna: (arguing with Charla during Detour) I don't understand what's wrong with you. You're wasting a lot of time.
Rob: (during Detour, not realizing he has misspelled Phillipines as "Phillipeans") Better not be a spelling thing.
Eric: (in interview segment, regarding Danielle) I'm treating her pretty much like a guy except that she has nicer boobs.
Rob: I'm not trying to be arrogant or cocky. I"m just saying that I believe in us. I believe that we're the strongest team here.
