Episode 10, in which Leila discovers:

- That it might please the eternal pessimist Lawrence Oates to know that 103 years later he is still making people very sad

- How Britain got so big while being (as she astutely and repeatedly points out) so very small

And in which Tristan realizes:

- That he will never, ever get Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett properly segregated in his mind, so why even bother?

- That reading the name "Alfred Thayer Mahan" dozens of times can still leave a person woefully unprepared to say it
