Before the Food Flurry begins in the kitchen, Betty bawls out that she wants to get everyone together to discuss what all the dishes will be. No one heeds her. Mia complains that she and Betty were trying to get everyone together but no one wanted to talk to them. "And everybody's telling us, 'Well, we're not going to stop. We're going to see what's in the walk-in.'" That's not unreasonable, you know. How can they decide what they're making if they don't know what they have to work with? Of course, once they did get a grip on the food, they probably should have regrouped to plan the menu, but then we wouldn't have had the mediocre drama! And let me tell you, you can take that blandness to the bank. Colicchio just stands there, barely restraining himself from twirling a moustache. Food Flurry. Ted Ilan says they were happily surprised to see lots of produce and protein to work with, and that it wasn't just straight leftovers from an already-cooked menu. Betty tells us she and Mia wanted to do Napoleons, so they grabbed some pre-made puff pastry. Marcel and Frank decide to do a duo of salmon tartare. Frank lays into a whole silvery salmon and starts breaking it down. Marcel tells us that he really didn't like Frank's hackadoodle knife skills. Frank tells us, "I'm sure that Marcel's knife skills are wonderful. In my vast years of experience, I have taken a knife to more fish than anyone in this challenge or any of them put together." He's got a knife. I'm not going to argue. He's scary and intense. Meanwhile, Colicchio is standing there frowning.
