At Coal, Violet enters to warn Auggie that Mason, the owner, is on his way in. He walks in with Marcello and... is that Rick Fox? Never mind. I've already stopped caring whether it is or not. Mason/Rick Fox is eager to see what Marcello has come up with for new entrees. Marcello lays out a number of plates in front of him, to which Mason complains they look too small of portions. Marcello gets a look of panic on his face before declaring he's got one entrée up his sleeve that he thought of last night. He then details Auggie's recipe right in front of him. Auggie is simmering in his own juices and asks Marcello through his teeth what kind of sauce he'll be using. Marcello responds with Auggie's saffron idea. Rick Fox probably couldn't care less and probably only understood one word out of all of that foodie talk, so he agrees to see what Marcello's got and they walk off together. Violet comes up to clarify that "that's, like, cooking plagiarism." Violet, that's, like, so insightful. Auggie rationalizes that he needs to follow the chain of command if he wants to ever get promoted. Violet isn't listening to all that jive. "From here, it looks like your chain is being yanked." From here, it looks like Violet just yanked it again.
