Down to the dining room! Dave's first nominee is Robert, for having a weak service and health problems. Dave claims to be concerned about Robert's health. His second nominee is Van for the night's service. Van and Robert step forward, and Gordon tells Andy to join them. Because Gordon cares nothing for your "rules". It's all about crazy swerves, remember?
Robert mutters "Thank God" just loud enough for Gordon to hear so that everyone knows how much better he thinks he is than Andy. Chef Ramsay tells Andy he's probably not going to win. Then he asks Van what the deal was with the plastic, and Van says he doesn't have an excuse, but that he does have talent. "You've got twenty-something years in this business, you can spot talent!" Gordon sends Van back to his team. Van doesn't argue. Okay. Robert, why should you stay? "I've never been on the block once." Well, okay, that's -- oh, you're not finished? "And I'm disgusted that I even share the same [bleep] stage with this guy right here, all right?" Among his points is that Andy is "not there for the team". That seems like an opening for a counterattack.
Yep. Andy: "Chef, can I address that for a second? If you ask my whole team, they'll all tell you that he does nothing during the day. He barely does anything." At this point, Robert starts shouting obscenities, but I'll stick with Andy's speech: "He says he reserves his energy, which means he does [bleep]." Robert makes a big spectacle of himself, shouting at Andy about how inadequate he is. Andy gets sent back in line and Robert gets sent home. Finally! His goodbye speech is about how it was an honor to come back and we're supposed to find him inspirational or something. Personally, I'm sick of him. Get off the show, Robert.
