Jen's first risotto gets a compliment; she's on hot apps while Petrozza is on cold apps. The first cold appetizer is rejected because the bottom of the plate has chives stuck to it where it was resting in Petrozza's filthy workspace. Petrozza interviews, with no hint of embarrassment, that he's dirtier than the average guy. After the bottom of the plate is cleaned, Chef Ramsay actually compliments the food that's on top. So he doesn't have anything against Petrozza, except that he works like a pig.
Jen interviews confidently that she knows she's the best chef there. Naturally, this is followed by her trying to give Chef Ramsay some salty risotto. However, the appetizers seem to be going out smoothly, which means that it's time for the meat. And Matt can't even remember the order that's being shouted at him. That's "regular kitchen shouting", not "furious Gordon Ramsay shouting." We'll have some of the latter kind in a second.
Chef Ramsay takes a moment to berate Corey for not having garnishes ready and does not accept "Matt won't talk to me" as an excuse. She interviews that everyone's in it for themselves and won't step in to help anyone else. Matt mutters to Christina that they have to work together, and she agrees. The next thing we see is Christina cooking chicken and beef in one pan. Can you do that? I mean, in a real restaurant? I know it's theoretically possible, but Chef Ramsay does not like it. Christina apparently figured it would save on burner space, but she knows it was a bad idea. And as soon as Chef Ramsay is done with her, he sees that Bobby has salmon and scallops in one pan. Bobby also has no excuse, especially since he's allergic to shellfish.
An hour in, only half the entrees have been served (which would have been a pretty good track record around episode three or four), and some are coming back. The rib-eye is coming back raw. Jen is not happy about her special dish being done wrong, and there is some dispute about how long the meat is supposed to be cooked for. Jen may or may not have told Christina it was four minutes. It's about as exciting as it sounds, so it's a nice change when Corey's pan goes up in a huge blaze, delaying the garnish and giving her a burn. Chef Ramsay orders her to go to the medics, but she refuses, wiping away a defiant tear. Jen describes her as "koo-koo in the head" for talking back to Chef Ramsay.
After the commercials, Corey allows herself to be ordered off to the medics. The medics, incidentally, have black "Hell's Kitchen Medic" T-shirts. I guess they figured if they were going to get all this screen time, they might as well look good.
