The red team starts on Melissa's entrees (the beef is to be Medium Well!) and appear to get it right. The blue team has a VIP table of their own: Melissa's mother. She doesn't get to sit with her daughter? I realize the daughter probably doesn't want her mother at her table, but still. Who's paying for all this? Yes, I realize the actual answer is "Fox Broadcasting". Let's just get to the point: Melissa's mother's table's entrees are ready, except for the fish. Who's on fish? Matt is on fish! How long, Matt? No answer! Petrozza gloats in an interview, and then the food is out.
But Melissa has a problem with her food; she would like it cooked a little more. Indeed, it does not look medium well to me. By that, I mean that it looks delicious and pink inside. Melissa's crazy. On the other hand, it's her birthday party, so she should get her meat cooked however she likes. She's quite nice about it, but that's probably because she knows that Chef Ramsay will take care of the shouting. Actually, he's pretty direct about it and Rosann gets a replacement steak in the oven. Meanwhile, Melissa's mother's halibut has come back dry, which means that both kitchens have messed up and sent Chef Ramsay into one of those rages where he mostly kicks the trash can near the center of the kitchen.
At this point, the party planner hops on the microphone in hopes of distracting everyone from the ranting Scotsman in the kitchen. Where's the fun in that?
I think this is a new commercial bumper with a match burning with a pitchfork flame. I believe it's intended to evoke birthday candles, but in a way that's vague enough that they can use it in other episodes.
So right now, Rosann is responsible for Melissa's undercooked beef and Matt is responsible for the mother's overcooked fish. They each come in for some personalized shouting, and Chef Ramsay rejects Rosann's replacement beef for also being undercooked. Finally, he orders Rosann off the station and cooks the beef himself, which is something he hardly ever does. It often seems like a struggle for him not to just do the cooking himself, and when it's the actual birthday girl's entree, I guess he couldn't help himself. The steak goes out and Melissa is pleased.
On the men's side, Bobby intercepts the mother's fish and brings it back to Matt, telling him that it's raw. Interesting power move there by Bobby, I think. I guess if he was on hot appetizers, he might not have any job to do at the moment, but I thought that sort of thing was the sous chef or head chef's responsibility. So Bobby shoves Matt out of the way and takes over on fish. Matt protests, "You know, you're acting like I'm doing a bad [bleep] job over here." Bobby responds in the only logical way: "You are!" He really is.
