In which it is shown that Phileas Fogg gained nothing by his tour around the world, unless it were happiness
- While running to grab the nearest preacher (to marry Phileas and Aouda), Passepartout finds out that it's actually Sunday, not Monday like the group's been thinking.
- By traveling eastward around the world, Phileas Fogg, master calculator and obsessive organizer, has forgotten the time he's gained by journeying through all those time zones.
- The group actually arrived two days early.
- Passepartout races home, grabs Phileas by the collar, shoves him into a cab, and deposits him at the club.
- Phileas presents himself with minutes to spare and effectively wins the bet.
- He's rich once more, but more important (as he says so himself), he has won the heart of a "charming" woman.
