Thirty minutes in, Ben has three desserts ready. What? Before the appetizers have even gone? I think that's crazy. So does Chef Ramsay, who throws away the brownie and the cheesecakes. Ben interviews: "It was my mistake for not exactly knowing Chef Ramsay's terminology, but [bleep] me if the words 'pick' and 'up' don't mean 'give you the desserts.'" Well, did Chef Ramsay say that? Hang on. Tivo will get to the bottom of this!
Okay, I've gone back and checked. He did, in fact, say "desserts pickup." I don't think he meant "make some desserts right now," though. That doesn't stop Chef Ramsay from shoving Ben out the door and telling him to go upstairs and lie down. Ben comes right back in as the voiceover guy makes some strained pun about "brownie points."
Somebody sends back a salad for having too much anchovy. Lacey tells Chef Ramsay, who says that's what they ordered. Lacey agrees with him, and the next thing you know, he's calling her a "jumped-up bitch" and she's trying not to cry. Nothing much comes of it.
Giovanni and Robert are called on the carpet for some steak that is too rare. Giovanni, who is a steak house chef, comes in for some special abuse as more steaks come back. Giovanni interviews that it's awful, and I agree.
One table has somehow been forgotten. JP tells Lacey to tell the kitchen to fix it. Lacey's complaining tone gets a little high-pitched. So when Jean-Philippe mocks her, he goes even higher and, frankly, sounds a lot like Beaker. The Muppet. JP tells Chef Ramsay that it's because Lacey forgot the table. Chef Ramsay dismisses her with a wave of his hand, and she mutters, "Yeah, [bleep] off with me, I know." I liked that response a lot, actually.
When Chef Ramsay calls out the order, Giovanni says they're down to one filet. Ramsay shouts at him and sends Seth to cut more steaks. Seth interviews about this in an outrageously fake British accent. I half expect him to say "Crikey, guv'nor!" He actually does say "bugger orff." Seth needs Charlie to take the fat off the tenderloin, and we soon see a huge pile of trimmings to be discarded. Seth hides it in a refrigerator, and we see Chef Ramsay go to take a look at it. He calls the entire blue team over to look at the wasted meat and to yell at Seth for ruining the most expensive cut. He throws the entire wad of meat at Seth and we go to commercial.
