Women get first order. Roshni compares it to the first day of school, except on the first day of school kids probably already know the difference between five (number of scallops in a portion) and three (which is how many she serves for the first order). Then she serves some raw ones, leading Barbie to question just how many penises Roshni has touched lately, because that's a burn on Roshni somehow.
In the blue kitchen, Royce blames whoever prepped his station for not providing any anchovies for the Caesar salads. He says he's been ambushed. Not that they're in any danger of losing out to Roshni's raw scallops any time soon. Ramsay brings the next plate back and invites everyone to feel the non-dicklike-texture, and then he kicks Roshni out of the kitchen, leaving Barbie to lead the team's appetizers out of the kitchen.
Meanwhile, Royce has finally found some anchovies, a task that probably took only 30 seconds in actual time, but now the problem is Tavon serving up some raw squab. Royce shows no shame in dumping on someone else now that the heat's off him.
In the dining room, the diners are starting to wonder where their food is, because if there's one thing Hell's Kitchen is known for, it's never delaying food while Ramsay screams at his new chefs who are working together for the first time. "Leigh Bodden" is a "pro football player." At least he was, although he didn't play the 2010 season due to an injury and then he was released last year and hasn't been picked up by anyone else. So we're not talking Tom Brady-level status here.
Other chefs try to get around Tavon and send other orders out, but their scallops suck too, thanks, apparently, to Tavon's hackwork prepping them.
So an hour and a quarter into dinner service, the Blue Team hasn't sent out a single appetizer. Brian tells us that Tavon treated the scallops "like a homeless rat" whatever in the world THAT'S supposed to mean, like maybe the Blue Team shouldn't trust Brian around the knives either. Ramsay mocks Tavon's executive chef credentials. Tavon says he froze, and then he chuckles, earning himself a trip out of the kitchen, which doesn't seem to bother him too much.
Finished screaming at the men for a moment, Ramsay wanders over to the Red Kitchen, where the women are firing out the appetizers to the diners' delight. At least until Christina screws up the beef Wellington. And then screws up another one, so they have to reroll them, causing a long delay and the chance for the HK sound guy to stick in some crickets chirping in the background.
