The firemen, a specially invited local food critic, and half the town arrive for the relaunch, and it ends up really sucking. People (including the fire chief) don't get seated for over an hour, people don't get their food for over an hour, and finally the fire chief walks out. Melissa also has some trouble with her tableside Caesar salad service when she forgets the dressing. (Dude, what is it with Ramsay and tableside Caesar salads? At least he doesn't have to tell Melissa, "Stop touching yourself!") Jason tries to manage the overcrowded bar and, waiting for her table, the food critic asks him, "Do you need the review?"
As it tends to happen right about now, the kitchen miraculously turns stuff around and people get seated and served, even Sabrina Mashburn, food critic. Mashburn asks for suggestions from Melissa, who tells her the shepherd's pie and roast chicken that Buddy is carving tableside are the stuff to get. Mashburn wants to know something about the soups and asks, "If I had to choose between the potato and bacon or the mel-ig-a-tawny, what would I choose?" Pronouncing it correctly, Melissa suggests the mulligatawny. Nice one, food critic; do you need the job?
The food comes out to Mashburn's table and while everyone holds their breath, Mashburn takes a bite of shepherd's pie and pronounces, "There are like five restaurants in the whole country that can do something like this. It's really good." I'll bet all five restaurants also know how to pronounce the damn dish.
The last customer finally leaves and the family celebrates by hugging all over each other. Finally, Brian cries to us about Ramsay making him want to cook again and with that, has everyone finally cried in this episode? Ramsay gives the family his usual homily and walks out, leaving the Irish eyes a-smiling behind him.
Two months pass and we check in again with the restaurant. Apparently, everything is still good and everyone's happy and Mr. Voice-Over says, "As for Buddy, he finally cashed his first paycheck and, at last, Irish eyes are smiling." HEY! I already made that joke, Mr. Voice-Over! Go back to telling us how the socialite bludgeoned her lover with a Jimmy Choo full of pennies.
