People arrive, as do Sal and Marcy. The red team gets the host table and immediately falls behind when Siobhan's salad takes a little too long to get put in a bowl. And with that out of the way, appetizers start moving. There are a lot of crab cakes, which Autumn apparently did well. And there's some irrelevant cake drama, since it's on a table in the center of the dining room and is tilting dangerously whenever anyone walks past. Ed and Jay fix it.
Finally, someone screws up. Benjamin has some crab cakes that are cold in the middle. Chef Ramsay shouts at him about putting more oil in the pan, and his replacement crab cakes are burnt. Shout, shout, shout. The rest of the red team is a little smug in interviews as they talk about how easy crab cakes are and how they would certainly never make the mistake of cooking something poorly like that.
With that out of the way, the red team is on entrees. Nilka wheels the cart out to the host table. Ed appears to be starting his at the same time, which I don't approve of. Guests of honor first. Chef Ramsay shouts at Nilka to hurry up, and we see that she served her food successfully and at the right time. Well, okay. Might have been nice to see her actually do it. Over on the blue side, Jason and Salvatore are having some communication trouble over at the garnish station. Salvatore is not telling people they can slice things, and he doesn't have the parsnip puree for the duck. He looks completely lost out there.
Holli brings up some duck on the red side, and there are various problems with it. It's mostly undercooked, although there's also some overcooked chicken. Out in the dining room, Nilka is trying to work while JP is in her face demanding to know where the Dijon mustard and Cognac are from. She doesn't want to be charming and chat with the customers.
Fran has some problems with garnish and gets thrown off the station and replaced by Benjamin. Chef Ramsay has a string of about ten [bleep]s in a row as he also catches Fran waving a hot pan around. Over on the blue side, Salvatore learns that the response to "Where's the garnish for the two chicken?" is not "Two chicken, chef?" Soon, Chef Ramsay is in despair, moaning, "Oh, now it's on fire." And then he kicks the garbage can and the wacky editors shake the camera. Hilarious?
