Ramsay starts by taking Zach's jacket, and Zach waves goodbye. He says he'll continue his dream, and got to work side-by-side with a great chef, and if Ramsay ever called him, he'd work for him, no problem. Lucky for Ramsay!
Ramsay tells Susan that when she walks out the doors, she'll be successful -- but she's not leaving tonight. He orders her back in line. She starts to cry.
Ramsay tells them that tomorrow they have to do one more thing before he doles out the Black jackets, and dismisses them. Susan's take: "Obviously Chef Ramsay changed his mind tonight because he couldn't bear to see me go." Despite common sense, she seems to be entirely serious on that assessment.
Oh, and Ramsay is completely serious too: "There once was a chef named Zach. For words he didn't lack. But in the kitchen, he was no magician, and he won't be coming back."
