Moving on to Tiffany, Tom tells her that slicing the asparagus and boiling it to make it curl is a neat trick, but it removes all flavor. Ludo adds that they wanted more flavor for the chorizo as well. Tiffany just nods. Padma brings up the front of house issues, and Tom says that at one point there was not one server on the floor at all. Tiffany says, "When you're having arguments on the line, it's a lot, and it's hard to control." Antonia gets a look on her face like, "Oh, shit. She brought it up" and Tom asks, "Arguments on the line?" Tiffany gets a look like, "Oops." Clearly they agreed not to discuss the kitchen shenanigans, and Tiffany let it slip. She even says, "Uh oh." Mike steps up and says that he and Marcel had a miscommunication, and he explains it in a way that really doesn't make him or Marcel look terribly bad, and even gives Antonia points for stepping in and straightening them out. But of course, Marcel has to give his version of the story, where Mike refused to answer his questions.
So then, Mike has had enough and he's like "Oh, you're going to pull my card? Because that's what you're doing." And then he yells that Marcel was trying to plate desserts on their pickup. I don't really know what that means, but it's clearly a bad thing. And also that Marcel tried to do two dishes, and he wasn't strong enough to pull it off. Angelo nods in agreement. So Marcel yells that Mike hasn't worked a line in years, and he was slow. Mike delivers the line that had the editors squealing with delight: "You did a poor job. No one wants to say anything because you're a time bomb." And that's what's really going on. Tiffany tries to get the boys to shut up, because clearly the judges don't care. I mean, they care in that they're eating popcorn and giggling, but I don't think this will have any effect on their final decision. Marcel starts to list off all the ways that his suggestions were ignored. Antonia's like, "Okay, we're going there" and says that Marcel should have stepped up as team captain, and he didn't. Marcel claims they all ignored him, and Tiffany says it's because he was barking orders instead of working with them. Colicchio puts his head in his hands.
Angelo apologizes for them being so unprofessional and adds that it was a shit show. Tiffany bursts out laughing, I think more from shock that Angelo said that than anything, and Padma chides her for laughing because it's not funny. Oh, come on Padma. They're not the United Nations arguing over disarmament. Stop taking yourself so seriously. This is a little bit funny. And Tiffany isn't a child. I mean, yes, I'm glad one of the judges stepped up and put an end to the horseshit, but let's all relax. Padma excuses them and asks to see Team Bodega.
