Son of Sam is proud of his innovative product and serves it to the firemen. It's a wild fruit salad of marinated fruit, which has a spicy mint chimichurri vinaigrette. It looks and sounds good, and the firemen and Chef Friday's like it, but I just don't see TGI Friday's putting it on their menu. As Padmadala scoops up the dregs on the plate, a fireman teases, "I can get you a straw for that it you like." Heh. Padmadala almost loses her mouthful of food in laughing. She's definitely more human than the Bot, but her line delivery is still over-rehearsed and annoying. Oh, I forgot to note that Padmadala is now wearing a metal shield badge on her denim tank top vest. I think that makes her Chief Clitshortis.
Emily's up next, and Cliff helps her carry her dish down. She explains that she made "Super Slamming Surf and Turf." We don't get to hear what it is, but there is definitely shrimp and steak and corn or polenta. "Too salty," "Super salty," "Sloppy," and "Amateurish" are the results. Gail dramatically holds her hand over her mouth and says she can't eat any more.
Frank prepares his drug-induced 'shroom dish. It's so bizarre. It's just... really, very bizarre. First, he's got some dressed mesclun greens and then he has half an avocado perched -- round side up -- on one of those scored cucumber cylinders. He also has grilled portabello caps topping some sort of support -- a marrow bone? Pineapple? -- and the caps have, like, eyes or something, in the form of thinly-sliced rounds of yellow squash. Michael laughs that the dish is "a train wreck, Man." Man, when Michael says that about your dish, you know you're in trouble. Frank presents his dish and Gail comments, "I feel like I'm in Smurfland!" It's not "Smurfland" it's just the "Smurf village," God. After Frank leaves, Colicchio notes, "This is bizarre." I think you have to be one serious Baked Alaska to eat this dish. Oh, I see, the thing that I though was a marrowbone is actually puff pastry stuffed with mushrooms duxelle. And those yellow things that I thought were eyes are supposed to be the spots on a mushroom. A poisonous mushroom.
