JP brings the first order into the kitchen with a muttered (and subtitled, because he says it in French) "Hurry up". Dave's on cold appetizers, Tennille's on hot appetizers, and Suzanne is on fish. Dave takes this opportunity to ask if there are any new cold apps he needs to know, and Tennille believes that he must be a [bleep] idiot. I agree that he should probably have asked that before the dinner service started. But since there aren't, he should be fine. Both the new dishes will be Suzanne's problem, I guess.
Suzanne doesn't have two scallops ready, which she blames on Tennille not telling her about. They do get the order out, then Chef Ramsay is calling out multiple tickets. Tennille drops risotto and tells Suzanne when to drop some scallops. But when Ariel thinks the risotto is "mush", Tennille declares it "fine". I don't think risotto is something you want to bluff with on this show. And indeed, Chef Ramsay rejects it and demands new risotto. And then Suzanne has some scallops that are burnt on one side. Ah, scallops and risotto. The essence of Hell's Kitchen. Dave does okay with his tuna, but Tennille's replacement risotto is mushy. She claims that normally she's "the risotto wizard", which is quite a claim. Actually, I can't decide if that would be impressive or not.
Chef Ramsay wants to know who cooked the rice in prep. Kevin takes responsibility, and Chef Ramsay rounds everyone up to complain about the rice being "all bitty, mushy, grainy ... look! Underneath all that muck, that's supposed to be a risotto!" Dave's opinion is that Kevin ruined the rice, but that Tennille should have noticed it. Kevin is straightforward: "I [bleep]ed it up!" Ariel offers to start some more rice, and Suzanne locates a pan of rice that is fine for risotto. Chef Ramsay barely acknowledges this in favor of dumping on Tennille for using the bad rice. And Kevin for ruining it. Chef Ramsay is shocked that these people can't identify unusable rice. Tennille describes Chef Ramsay as being "on Kevin like white on risotto".
Tennille brings up a new pan containing two orders of risotto, and Chef Ramsay insists that she and Kevin rush up to the pass. Urgently! This time, he wants to curse at them about how good the risotto is. You can identify every grain! Do it like this! Bleep, bleep, bleep! And so on. So appetizers are going fine, and it's time for entrees.
