The other team is like, "We are going to fuse our minds together and create a superbaby, and that baby will be named Bodega." And then they all experience mindmeld and it's awesome. Fabio is practically giddy with excitement.
The cheftestants head back to the apartment and continue discussing their ideas. Dale's team is refinining their Bodega concept. They discuss how a bodega is a spot where you can get a coffee, a bagel, a bag of chips, a sixer, and a Selena CD. Carla is excited, but she knows the diners will be voting, and she hopes that the concept isn't too far out for them. To illustrate her point, Blais is talking about rednecks who win the lottery eating caviar dipped in ranch dressing. Ah, now I see where this could go wrong.
Marcel's team can't decide on a restaurant name. Marcel lobbies for "Medi" because most of their food is Mediterranean. Is it? I thought it was global. Why not "Globi"? Hire me, restaurant consultants! Their whole conversation is really confusing because at first it seems like Marcel is arguing that he's the only one who has thrown out an idea, so they should use it until someone comes up with something better. But then Angelo says that the other four all want the same thing, so majority wins. Mike's idea is Etch, which is almost as bad as Medi. He explains that they are "etching [their] food together into a tasting menu." I don't think he knows what etch means. Also, it's way too close to "sketch" which makes me think of "sketchy" and I don't want to eat somewhere sketchy. Then again, they are wasting way too much time worrying about the name, when no one cares. Call it A.S. Bistro and be done with it. People don't vote for the name; they vote for the food. And also maybe if they think Fabio wants to fuck them. I'm just saying.
The next day, the teams arrive at their restaurants, which are outside. But they have all the same equipment as always. The teams assess everything and try to figure out if they need to reconfigure anything for their needs. Marcel has another stupid bandanna tied around his head, but a different one. So that means he brought two bandannas. I mean, his hair isn't even that long that he needs something to keep it out of his face. Maybe he's really sweaty? I hate him.
