Rocco moves to taste CJ and Tre's black truffle and parmesan linguini with kale, tomato confit, and grilled chicken. Rocco wonders how they could afford black truffles on their budget. CJ smiles that they used truffle butter and they froze everything individually. Rocco examines one of their bags to confirm their process. Tre explains that they noted how Bertolli froze their pasta in nests, so they did the same, using muffin tins. "So, you just kind of duplicated what you saw," Rocco goes on. God, WE GET IT ALREADY! They did it right, they are the best, they are going to Italy, can we move on? CJ tells us he feels like a jackass because he hasn't won anything yet.
Customers return to pick up the boxes of the packaged dinners. Some Early Bird Specials tell Hung and Joey that they really like their pasta because it's still a little al dente. Sure, al dente to their dentures! Casey and Dale are the first team to "sell" all of their boxes. At some point we learn that the boxes are free for the customers. It is kind of sad when you can't give away free food because it's that bad.
Back in the limbo room, the cheftestants sit around and wait to be hauled in front of the judges. Sara M. in her really shrill voice -- man, has she always been that discordant in tone? -- says that all the customers really loved their dish but she can see where they went wrong. She knows they should have IQF'd everything. "IQF, IQF -- right there!" Casey booms in. It sounds like they're advertising a retirement plan. Howie sits silently and stews. I guess for some, Individually Quick Frozen is a retirement plan.
