Next up, Jen is caught trying to deliver raw John Dory. Jean-Philippe hears her being yelled at (because he is A: in the same state as her, and B: not deaf) and instructs the servers to "push the meat". Can you say that at work without Human Resources getting involved? It looks like he's right, though, because the fish that Jen brings to replace the raw portions? It's overcooked. JP is very firm on the meat.
Actually, the meat might not be such a great idea, because the beef wellingtons that Bobby brings up are practically unidentifiable. They're so cooked that you can't even see the redness of the meat, and JP tells the staff to push the chicken. Ramsay shouts at Bobby for awhile while the customers sit and grouse.
Petrozza brings some of Jen's John Dory to the pass ahead of the other dishes, which prompts Chef Ramsay to ask Jen what it's doing there. She answers, perfectly rationally and correctly, that she didn't bring the fish up, but that just makes Ramsay demand to know if she wants to argue. She interviews that it's really hard not to argue when she knows Chef Ramsay's wrong, but she just held her tongue and told herself to shut up and not even look at him. That's a good call, I think, because even though she's totally in the right here, there's no way she'd win the argument.
Unfortunately for Jen, Chef Ramsay keeps on her, demanding to know what she was thinking. And when she tries again to explain that she wasn't the one who brought the fish up, he tells her not to yell at him. This is a very hard situation to walk away from, and Jen can't quite do it, cornering Chef Ramsay in the back of the kitchen. He tells her he doesn't want to hear her cry and "If that's your attitude to customers waiting for food, that's why I'm pissed off" and doesn't let her get a word in edgewise. It's a rough situation, and I don't blame her for being frustrated.
Bobby thinks the kitchen is like a war. I only mention that because the whole four-star general thing still bugs me. Everyone's getting together and the twelve-top strolls in. It's a good thing they got there after everyone else, I guess. The appetizers come in and Christina and Corey have to stop washing up and get back to cooking. Chef Ramsay is watching them like a hawk, pointing out when they don't have enough spaghetti going. Normally he just lets people cook themselves into a corner, but here he's stopping problems before they torpedo the whole service. Meanwhile, out in the dining room, the twelve-top (who are all Hawaiian Tropic models) all flirt with Jean-Philippe. All the appetizers get to the window, and Corey interviews that even though she and Christina hate each other, they still work well together. Good for them! And now they switch to desserts while Bobby, Petrozza, and Jen handle entrees. I'd been wondering what the appetizer people did when their jobs were done.
