Back in the kitchens, Ramsay sees deaf-ish sous chef Francis pick something off the floor, put it into the deep fryer, and add it to whatever he was making for the Borgia family's friends. Ramsay boggles, and once he gets Francis to finally hear his spluttering, he asks what the hell Francis thinks he's doing. Francis explains, "Well, the fryer is gonna take anything that come off the floor and clean it." Ramsay, nearly apoplectic, clarifies this whole idea. Francis adds, "It sterilizes it." Ramsay gets this all straight in his head, swears, and grabs for his temples. Buddy comes back to find out what's going on, and when Francis explains what he did to the chicken wing, Buddy's face goes ashen and he demands to know what the fuck Francis was thinking. Ramsay confides in us, "I've never, ever, ever seen anything quite as extraordinary as that." Not even when Jen attempted to introduce her new menu item, Spaghetti Trashinara?
The next day, we learn that the Irish family's name is "Mazio." This puzzles me and makes me wonder if their spring rolls should be stuffed with gnocchi and lasagna. We also learn that Buddy is so deep in the hole that he hasn't paid himself yet, and he has a stack of uncashed paychecks to prove it. Ramsay and Buddy discuss the Brothers McMazio and how Brian sucks more than Jason. Buddy admits that if Brian weren't his son, he'd fire him.
Ramsay next teaches Buddy how to make a proper shepherd's pie, even showing him how to drain off the excess grease from the ground beef. Brian's reaction to us is, "To have him come to your place and show you what you should be doing the right way, to be honest, it made me laugh a little." Buddy has a different reaction and thinks they are "fortunate" to be schooled by Ramsay, adding, "Boy, you'd be a fool not to jump on this." Well, your son is a fool. A McFool. In a side-by-side taste test, Ramsay's shepherd's pie was preferred over Brian's five-to-zip. Jason admits that Brian's shepherd's pie is terrible and their new one is fantastic. Brian is tremendously pissed off that he comes out looking like an asshole, so he takes himself to the bar to chill with friends a bit. Once he's back in the kitchen, Brian deals with Buddy standing over him and telling him he can't go skiving off with his friends just because they're all in the bar now. They get into a fight and finally Brian just leaves the restaurant, leaving Buddy to cook and run the kitchen that night with Ramsay riding his ass. It's a big mess with broken plates and missing buns and screwed-up orders. Buddy comments, "No wonder Brian's a cranky bitch."
