Hell's Kitchen (2005–…): Season 17, Episode 4 - Just Letter Cook - full transcript

The remaining chefs must face off in a "game of chance" to divvy up their ingredients and create their own unique dishes. During this challenge, each chef has 45 minutes to create a dish, combining a protein of their choice with a...

Previously on
"Hell's Kitchen All-Stars"...

- Go.
- In a test

of hand-eye coordination,
Michelle excelled,

and Jared fumbled...

Jared, I feel bad for your
girlfriend at home.

Which gave the women
a 30-second head start

in a seafood tower challenge.

Team two is in. Let's go.

But when Michelle got
very little support

shucking oysters...

I look over at Elise, and she's
working on ice.



Four, five. We need another one.

- What?
- The lead quickly slipped away.

Yes, great job. Well done.

Damn it. Now the boys are ahead of us.

And the Red Team never caught up.

Congratulations.

Yeah!

At dinner service...

On order, two twos,
two covers, table ten.

Two covers, table two.

Josh got in hot water early.

Josh, what did I just say?

I... I was cooking, Chef.
I didn't hear you.

But Milly's vocal leadership...



Walk garnish in two minutes, bro.

- I got you, Milly.
- Heard that.

- I need the salmon, bro.
- Salmon right now.

Helped the Blue Team
deliver their second consecutie

solid service.

- Beautifully cooked, Milly.
- Thank you, Chef.

But in the Red kitchen,

it was a completely different story.

- We're dragging.
- Manda messed up garnish...

Can I have the
[BLEEP] garnish, young lady?

I don't know what the [BLEEP] is
happening anymore.

Robyn ruined fish...

Halibut ice cold.

Barbie butchered the meat...

Overcooked duck, too bland, disgusting.

And as for Ashley...

What is Ashley doing?

Get the [BLEEP] out.

Oh, this is horrible.

The Red Team was soundly defeated,

and Chef Ramsey called up...

Robyn, Barbie, Ashley, Manda,
step forward.

And ultimately eliminated...

Ashley. You look lost.

Ending her dream of
becoming the head chef

at the first-ever Gordon
Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen

restaurant at Caesars Palace in
Las Vegas.

And now the continuation of
"Hell's Kitchen All-Stars."

Get out of there.

Yes, Chef.

Oh, man. I thought I was out.

That was nerve-racking and awful
and gut-wrenching.

I thought I was leaving.

I can't [BLEEP] up anymore.

How are my Nubian princesses
doing out here tonight?

Here you come with your
flirtin'-ass self.

Oh, Lord.

I like strong black women.

And Barbie is sexy.

First thing out his damn
mouth a damn flirt.

That wasn't meant for nobody but me.

I got some charm. I got some charisma.

I could charm the fangs
off a rattlesnake.

All this chocolate out here, I
can't hardly concentrate.

Don't make me go put on my
swimsuit, Van.

You know you ain't gonna
be able to handle it.

Van is the kind of fun that you
always want to be around.

Oh, my God.

He's always hot. Like, he's hot-blooded.

The chicks love cuddling with me
in the wintertime.

- No way. I would hate it.
- Yes.

Ohh.

I have a California King by myself.

Me too. I got a sleigh bed.

It's all leather.

I'm a cuddle buddy.

I'm always cold.

Cold?

Aww, I be giving you some dreams
tonight, won't I?

Ooh-whee!

Let's go. Good morning.

Good morning, Chef.

I thought this morning we
could give away

a little inspiration for all of you.

In Vegas, as there is so much
competition,

the food has to taste great, look great,

and needs to come with a bit of...

showmanship.

Ohh!

Crazy.

You know, the other thing
Vegas is famous for

is gambling, right?

Yes, Chef.

Poker, craps, roulette, but today

we'll be playing our own game of chance.

Ooh.

Ladies, thank you so much.

I don't really like
leaving things to chance.

Today I'm gonna be using this machine

to help test your
knowledge of ingredients.

Here's how it's going to work.

I'm gonna press the
button on the machine,

and then a letter will appear.

You'll name an ingredient
that starts with that letter.

The first chef who gets stumped
loses the round for their team.

The team that wins gets to
choose what ingredient you keep

and what ingredient that the
other team have to cook with.

Oh, God.

We don't want to end up with some weird,

random ingredients, so everybody

has to think on their feet.

And I'm looking around at
this group, and I'm like,

"I don't know that that's
everbody's forte."

Blue Team, you had the best
performing dinner service

last night, so you'll start first.

- Yes, Chef.
- Here we go.

- All right.
- Oh, come on, B.

- E.
- Come on, baby.

- Give me that B.
- B.

- M.
- Right, Benjamin, M.

Maraschino cherry, Chef.

What the [BLEEP]?

Where did that come from?

Wow.

I don't know.

Gonna make it challenging.

Right, Manda.

Mascarpone.

Mascarpone

Giovanni.

Oh, Jeez. Mayo?

Michelle.

Mushroom, Chef.

- Jared.
- Mustard, Chef.

- Elise.
- Mango.

- Milly.
- Um...

Oh, man.

Come on.

I'm stumped, Chef.

I couldn't think of nothing
that started with an M...

- We got this.
- Other than Milly.

Like, naw, and that ain't
gonna be an ingredient.

Stumped.

Ladies, tell me the ingredient
the Red Team is choosing.

- Mushrooms, Chef.
- Mushrooms.

What are you selecting to
give to the Blue Team.

Maraschino cherry, Chef.

Come on, Ben.

What the hell am I gonna do
with Maraschino cherries,

make a Shirley Temple?

Wow, here we go.

The chef's next letter is...

- D.
- C.

- Cantaloupe.
- That's good.

- Cauliflower.
- Chard, Chef.

- Michelle.
- Uh...

Uh...

Cabbage, cream cheese,
cottage cheese, cucumbers.

Come on, Michelle.

Three, two, one, stumped.

[BLEEP].

Men...

The Blue Team takes..

Cauliflower, Chef.

And give the Red Team...

Cantaloupe, Chef.

- Next up...
- S.

- Jared.
- Snap peas.

- Syrup.
- Milly.

- Um...
- Three, two, one.

I got mind block, Chef.

- Yes.
- Yes.

Yes. We not losing today.

We are not.

Ladies, what ingredient are you keeping?

Snap peas.

What are you giving the men?

Syrup.

Here we go. A.

- Dana.
- Asparagus, Chef.

- Milly.
- Apple.

- Robyn.
- Artichoke.

- Josh.
- Agnolotti.

- Agnolotti?
- No?

No, agnolotti is a tortellini
stuffed with braised meat.

Get out of here, man.

Stop telling us what you want
to eat for dinner tonight.

Stumped.

- Yeah!
- Yay!

- Yes!
- Michelle.

We're keeping asparagus, Chef.

Love it.

What are you giving to the Blue Team?

- Artichoke, Chef.
- Perfect, perfect.

- Sounds great.
- Let's go.

- In the next round...
- P.

After several prolific answers...

- Dana.
- The Red Team

- is perplexed...
- [BLEEP].

So the Blue Team punishes them with...

Peanut butter, Chef.

Peanut butter.

Oh, my God.

What the hell am I gonna
do with peanut butter?

And the men keep...

- Portabella, Chef.
- Portabella mushrooms.

Good. Two more ingredients left.

In the R round, the Red Team keeps...

- Rice.
- And tries to rattle

the Blue Team with...

Raisins, Chef.

And as for the letter B,

the Blue Team gets blessed with...

- Bacon.
- And the Red Team

gets burdened with...

Blueberries, Chef.

- All right.
- We'll take it.

Wow, there we have it.

Now get creative.

I want to see some flair.

Forced to eat hallucinogens
to make a dish with that.

Your 40 minutes starts now.

In today's challenge...

- Let's go.
- Yikes.

Chef Ramsay has provided each chef

with their own protein in
addition to the seven shared

ingredients that they are
all required to use.

Get that rice on, guys.

So a couple things
you can do with the cherries.

You can cook them in a balsamic.

- You can pickle them.
- Oh, I know what I'ma do.

Come on, ladies.

We got this.

Guys, is everyone feeling okay?

I'm not feeling okay.

I'm allergic to peanut butter.

I'm gonna need help,

'cause there's just no
way I cn try my sauce

with the peanut butter.

- What protein do you have?
- Halibut.

But on top of that, I have to
pair peanut butter with fish.

Can one of your teammates help you out

with that element of your dish?

I'll figure it... I'll find someone.

Hell, yeah. I'm a genius.

What are you making?

I'm doing a black cod with
cherry syrup gastrique.

My dishes ride that line

that on this side you're genius,
and on this side you're crazy.

20 minutes remaining.

Ladies, are we incorporating
all seven ingredients?

Yes, Chef.

Good.

Tell me if I need more salt.

I have, like, such bad dry
mouth, I can't, like...

Robyn always chokes during challenges,

so as much as we both want to win,

I don't want to give her some advice

and then blame me when
it doesn't taste good.

So I'm gonna focus on my own dish.

2 minutes remaining.

Guys, make sure if you're
cooking artichokes

they're getting cooked.

Don't overcook your cod, Robyn.

Well, it's still not cooked.

- Show some finesse, guys, yeah?
- Yes, Chef.

My sauce is done.
Can you taste my sauce?

Sure.

That's good. It's delicious.

- 30 seconds remaining.
- Come on, ladies.

Y'all plating? Everything on the plate.

Ten, nine, eight, seven,

six, five, four,

three, two, one, and serve.

Well done.

Wow. Time flies, right?

Sure does, Chef.

We're gonna begin with the Red Team.

Barbie, let's go.

Come on, Barbie. You got this, Barbie.

Each dish will be scored on a scale

of one to five, and the team
with the highest point total

will win the challenge.

Describe your dish, please.

I made a pan-seared halibut

with an African peanut sauce, Chef.

But I'm allergic to peanuts, so...

- So you haven't tasted this?
- No, Chef.

But my team helped me.

Right.

You've nailed the fish.

Peanut butter incorporates... Delicious.

That is a four out of five. Good job.

Thank you, Chef.

I think that if I had been
able to taste my dish,

I would have gotten a five out of five.

But I'm really proud of it.

Really good start.

Good job. Manda, let's go.

Now it's Manda's turn, and she is hoping

to score big points with her rib cap

and cantaloupe-infused rice.

The bizarre rice is bland.

- Damn, that sucks.
- That does suck.

- It's a two.
- Sorry, Chef.

It's okay.

Dana, let's go.

- Come on, Dana.
- Come on, Dana. You got this.

After Manda's misstep,
Dana is in the spotlight

with her peanut butter lime rib eye

with blueberry demi-glace.

The steak you've nailed beautifully.

That is a resounding five.

- Thank you, Chef.
- Great job.

- Good job, Dana.
- Good job, Dana.

Hoping to match Dana's perfect score,

Robyn presents a seared black cod

marinated in peanut butter
with a blueberry gastrique.

I haven't been doing
so good in challenges,

so I definitely need to bounce back.

Come on, Chef Ramsay, five, five, five,

five, five, five, five, five.

So it looks like someone's been shot.

- Oh, God.
- Oh, no.

It's bland, and the skin is rubbery.

Come on; I'm struggling
to give that a one.

One out of five.

Ugh.

Robyn gets a one again.

This is not looking good for our team.

As Robyn's fish tank,
Elise is under pressure

to deliver on her wagyu strip
steak to boost their total.

I love what you've done with the melon.

You wrapped these fine.

That is a definite five for five.

Thank you, Chef.

Once again slam dunk.

That five is all me, baby.

Next, Michelle hopes her fillet

with pepper-crusted cantaloupe...

I love what you've done with that salty

sweetness in the melon.

Can continue the Red Team's hot streak.

That's a five for five.

- Thank you, Chef.
- Yes, yes.

Jennifer, the last one for the Reds.

Describe the dish, please.

It's peanut butter fried
monkfish with saffron risotto.

That is cooked beautifully.

Do you guys see how glistening that is?

Yes, Chef.

- Very strong four.
- Thank you, Chef.

Good job, Jennifer.

Really good job.

Good job.

Ladies, your total: 26.

That's a strong effort.

Right, Milly starting
off for the Blue Team.

If the Red Team can get 26,

I'm guaranteeing we getting a 30.

I have a brown butter
and bacon fat monkfish

garnished with grilled
maraschino cherries.

It doesn't look that intriguing.

But the actual flavor is good.

It's a good four.

- Thank you, Chef.
- Thank you.

That's a great start.

Next up, Van hopes his fillet with syrup

and cherry sauce can
continue to close the gap.

Fillet you nailed, but there's
so much cherry on that.

It's just very sweet.

Three out of five, Van.

Benjamin's wagyu strip steak

with a maple bacon glaze
will need to impress

to match the perfect score
that Elise received

with her wagyu.

Really beautiful. The glaze

gives that earthiness and
just lightens everything up.

That is a definite five for five.

Thank you, Chef.

Good job, baby.

Getting a five is the best, you know?

That's what I do.

It's not up to Jared's black cod

with roasted cauliflower to
keep the Blue Team afloat.

Man, I'm proud of this.

This turned out exactly
like I thought it should.

So I think the bizarre
thing with this is,

cauliflower tastes better
than your protein.

Yes, Chef.

That's a one out of five, Jared.

Come on, bro. A one?

You better than a one, man.

We can't win like this.

Nick, let's go, please.

After Jared's failure with fish,

Nick will need to score
big with his rib eye

and golden raisin tapenade
for the Blue Team

to have a chance of winning.

This dish is inspired by my husband,

because we always eat rib eyes at home.

Yeah, I can see why he married you.

Five for five, young man.

- Good job.
- Thank you, Chef. Thank you.

Men, you're down by eight.

Next up, Josh, please.

We're eight points down,
there's two of us left,

and I'm confident my dish has
what it takes to help us win.

Describe that, please.

That is a bacon-wrapped halibut, Chef,

that I basted with thyme.

Visually, it's textbook.

Looks like it's just come
off the cover of a book.

I'm like, "Please don't
taste as good as it looks."

The fish is overcooked.

Yes, Chef.

It's a three out of five.

So close.

So close.

Gio, all the pressure on you.

As this is the Blue Team's final dish,

Giovanni will need a perfect
score to tie the Red Team.

- _
- Yes, we do.

It's a grilled rib cap.

I rendered the bacon. I sautéed it.

Temperaturewise, what have you gone for?

Medium rare.

Medium rare.

God, I hope he overcooked that meat.

Mmm, it's cooked beautifully.

Thank you, Chef.

It's a good dish.

Thank you.

You cook meat like an angel.

Anything but a five,
anything, not a five.

Gio, that dish is...

It's down to the final dish

of the letter lottery challeng.

It's a good dish.

And if Giovanni receives anything less

than a perfect score of five,
the Red Team will win.

Gio, that dish is...

Is a four out of five.

- Yes!
- Oh, my God!

The Red Team really, really,
really, really needed this win.

Not losing today.

Our confidence needed to get boosted,

up our morale a little bit,
and we are so stoked.

That's how you do it, ladies.

Ladies, you are in for
an incredible experience

for your first victory.

You are all heading to
gorgeous Santa Barbara.

Yay.

You'll be staying
overnight at the beautiful

Belmond El Encanto resort...

- Wow.
- Wow.

A stunning five-star resort.

Yay!

One more little thing.

You'll be flying there in
your own private plane.

What are you waiting for?
Wheels up. Let's go.

- Oh, no, that way.
- Let's go.

We finally won.

Yeah, we earned this.

After you lose four things in a row,

a win becomes, like,
the biggest thing in the world,

so it's redemption, baby.

Redemption!

- Yeah!
- Whoo!

Whilst the ladies are
enjoying that incredible resort,

you will be hard at work.

First off, we have a
delivery of potatoes,

and then you'll be recycling
hundreds of pounds

worth of garbage.

Everything needs to go
in the proper bins.

It's gonna be smelly.
It's gonna be dirty.

Regroup. Get focused.

Yes, Chef.

We ain't tasted a loss yet,
so, you know,

it's heartbreaking losing by one point.

It's gonna be a long day, guys.

It really, like,
takes all the air out you,

like, right then and there.

That was tough.

Here.

Whew.

What am I gonna wear?
I have so many options.

I'm so excited.

We needed this win for our whoe
team to get on one accord.

Yo, this is what we need.

- Ladies take care.
- Whoo! Bye-bye.

Oh, bye. Bye, bye, bye.

I cannot wait to get
out of Hell's Kitchen.

Buh-bye, boys. We got to go.

Oh, this is so nice.

Whoo! Yes.

Let's hit it.

We're going on a
wheels up private plane?

Oh, my God. I'm on a $7 million plane.

It's only got eight seats in it,
so I'm basically sitting

in, like, a million-dollar seat.

Cheers, everyone, to our first win.

Whoo!

- Yes.
- Yes.

Santa Barbara, baby.

Good afternoon; welcome
to the Belmond El Encanto

- Nice to meet you.
- Welcome.

I'm just a girl from Massachusetts.

I mean, we have nice places,
but this is, like,

world-renowned resort.

I'm talking five-star luxury.

It's [BLEEP] awesome.

Here we go. Here's your suite.

Enjoy your stay with us.

Have fun, ladies.

- Thank you.
- Thank you.

Thank you.

- Oh, look, we have...
- Oh, it looks nice.

This is John F.
Kennedy's favorite suite.

- Oh, my God.
- Nice.

We're in the presidential suite.

Oh, there's champagne.

Look at this.

This is a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

- Whoo!
- It's just amazing.

Cheers, ladies.

To the Red Team! Victory! Whoo!

While the Red Team enjoys the high life,

the Blue Team is down in the dumps.

Let's just get this over with, people.

It sucks. We're gonna get smelly. Blech.

- Oh, man, what is that?
- Oh, it smells.

- Dump it out.
- Oh, come on.

Oh, man, that smells awful.

You've got to hold your breath, bud.

It's pretty [BLEEP] bad.

Whoo!

Milly, close that one up.

Close that one up, Milly. No way.

Going through the trash,
by far it was Josh and Giovanni

having the roughest time.

[BLEEP] that.

Oh, hell no.

That's a lot of pasta in there.

Just [BLEEP] do it.

Ooh, this one's got some weight.

I think my Uncle Luigi's in here.

This day sucked, man.

I've been through some
punishments in Hell's Kitchen.

This has got to be right up
there atop of the worst.

Ugh.

The last thing I want to do is
clean up trash for eight hours.

Let's make sure it
never happens again, man.

Pool time, ladies.

So nice.

Whoo!

Oh, my God. What a view.

Oh, look at the view.

Oh, my God.

I miss my girlfriend so much,

and I have all these
hot chicks around me.

Whoo! Mama, mamacita.

Hey.

What the [BLEEP]? What are you wearing?

These girls are, like,
seriously rockin' these bikinis.

They're here to flaunt their stuff,

and I'm here to look at their stuff.

Why are you, like, making me wet, girl?

One for the token lesbian.

I'm, like, in heaven right now.

- Oh!
- Oh, my God!

Oh, thank you, Reuben.

Yeah, we get actual liquor.

This is way better than
being in Hell's Kitchen.

- Yeah.
- That's for sure.

Sorry, boys.

This is the life.

Chef Ramsay's made you some lunch.

You hungry, yeah?

Make sure you eat it all.

- That's terrible.
- Ooh, the smell

- What is it?
- It looks like fish remnants.

It smells like caca.

Ooh, doggy.

There's things in here that
I could never understand.

Lunch today you just smell
fish and all this funkiness,

and I just know it's gonna suck.

It's just the question of how much.

Ohh, there's, like, bones in there.

- There's bones in there.
- Oh, God.

It's ready to blow out every hole

every time I take a bite.

Whew.

My mouth has been in some
bad situations before,

but it was the worst fish taste
that this mouth has ever seen.

Okay, chefs, we got a lot
of prep to do for tonight.

- Let's get going.
- Yes, Chef.

What is your job title, Josh?

So I'm a personal chef to celebrities,

and I have my own catering company.

I'm on my feet three hours a day.

Three hours, bro.

Three hours a day I'm on my feet.

I'm on my feet 16.

Josh, you make me want to
[BLEEP] slit my own wrists.

- Yeah?
- And that's a good thing.

One down, six to go.

I can't respect that.

I give my life to this business.

I give my blood, sweat,
and tears every day.

- You put this here?
- Josh.

It's too small.

Hi, guys.

Welcome to hell.

Did you miss us?

We got to go to the pool and
stay in the nicest room.

Bitches, guess what.

I flew on a private jet
twice on my season,

so this is old news to me,

'cause I've already been
there and done that

and got the T-shirt.

All right, y'all, let's look alive.

- Marino.
- Si, chef.

Open house kitchen, please. Let's go.

Once again Hell's Kitchen is bustling

with excitement.

Cheers As both kitchens

host VIP chef's tables...

- Welcome.
- Thank you.

So good to see you.

Thank you.

- Welcome.
- Thank you.

- Good to see you.
- I'm so excited.

And a very special
12-top in the dining room

celebrating a 30th birthday.

Happy 30th, Toby.

As both kitchens will
split the ticket for this table,

they will need to be in sync.

Michelle, come over.

- Josh.
- Yes, Chef.

- Come over.
- Chef Ramsay

expects them to have their
dishes ready at the same time.

Red Team, two scallop,
two risotto, two tartare.

Blue Team, two carbonara,
two scallop, two tartare.

- Yes, Chef.
- Give me a time.

- 8 minutes.
- 8 minutes, Chef.

- Let's go. 8 minutes.
- Yes, Chef.

Hey, you're responsible. Let's go.

I'm Italian. Risotto's in my blood.

It seeps from my pores.
You know, I can cook risotto.

We've got 7 minutes to the window.

Let me know when you're 2 out.

5 minutes till we walk for the 12-top.

We're perfect on 5 minutes.

- You good, Robyn?
- I'm great.

I'm plating the tartare now, guys.

Okay.

We're definitely rocking
in the Red kitchen.

I'm super stoked, especially
for the 30th birthday party.

I'm gonna rock my station.

Let's go. Let's go. Let's go.

Walking scallops.

Walking with two risotto.

Josh, I just dropped my risotto.

Yeah, I heard.

- Josh.
- Yeah, give me a second.

- [BLEEP]. I got it.
- Josh.

Yeah, Michelle, I heard you.

- Scallops, please.
- I'm walking with two scallop.

- Don't drop 'em.
- Yes, Chef.

Up you go. Good.

12-top, go.

Out the same time.
First time in history.

Both teams have successfully delivered

appetizers to a happy birthday table.

Bon appétit.

All right, we got tickets, guys.

- All right, guys.
- Let's go, boys.

On order, I need two
scallops, two risotto.

Yes, Chef.

How long do you need a risotto, Josh?

- Yeah, 8 minutes.
- 8 minutes.

- Do you need help, Josh?
- Please.

I'm just having issues with this heat.

- I need this. I need this.
- Go ahead. Take it. It's yours.

Josh is like a little kid
that drank too much coffee.

He's, like, bouncing,
bouncing, bouncing.

He's making a mess.

He doesn't know what the
[BLEEP] is going on.

Come on.

- How long, Josh?
- Give me...

Let me just... let me see where I'm at.

Josh, you've got to pump them...

You've got to pump them risottos, bro.

- Yeah.
- Ain't nothing left to do.

- I can't make rice cook faster.
- There's... you've got to.

- Just so you know, I can't.
- You have to!

I'm not as magic as you might think.

They're gonna get into a fight.

Scallops, please.

Two scallops walking.

- Go. Let's go. Let's go.
- All right, I'm walking.

- I'm walking.
- How long?

- I'm walking two risotto.
- Walking two risottos.

Two risottos walking to the pass.

Whew, how many portions of that?

Hey, all of you, come here.

Two, four, six risotto.

- All I need is two.
- Yes, Chef.

- Wake up.
- Yes, Chef.

I-I-I don't know what's wrong with you?

No, I understand, Chef.
I made too much risotto.

- You made too much.
- It won't happen again.

- Get a grip.
- Yes, Chef.

Even though Josh
is making his job harder

by delivering more
risottos than are needed,

the Blue Team is steadily
delivering appetizers,

while in the Red kitchen,
Michelle and Elise

are attempting to keep pace
with their appetizers.

I'm, like, 30 seconds out
on this... the two risotto.

Okay, I'm walking with
two orders of scallops.

- All right.
- Taste it.

Taste it.

Whew.

Whew.

All of you, grab a spoon.

[BLEEP].

- What does that reek of?
- It's raw?

- Garlic.
- And garlic.

Garlic first, raw rice.

[BLEEP].

I'm pissed off at Michelle right now,

because she's such a good cook.

I don't understand why she's doing this.

This isn't looking good right now.

That looks better, right?

Yes.

You taste... taste before you go?

I'm walking with two risotto.

- Thank you.
- You're welcome.

Thank you, Chef.

Better not [BLEEP] come back.

- Hey, hey, delicious risotto.
- Thank you.

But why wasn't it like that first off?

Why can't you do that first time around?

It'll be like that
from now on out, Chef.

On order, two risotto, two scallop.

Risotto, how long?

I have 3... uh, 5 1/2 minutes, Chef.

- [BLEEP]. You...
- 5 1/2 minutes, Chef.

You're like this. [BLEEP].

- Come on. Up there. Let's go.
- Yes, Chef.

There's no reason that you
look at your [BLEEP] stopwatch

so you can time risotto.

Like, that's stupid.

- Risotto, how long?
- Yes, Chef.

- Can you just count?
- Yes, Chef.

Okay, well, look at that. Oh, [BLEEP].

Look at your [BLEEP] dish [BLEEP].

- Yes, Chef, 5...
- That's gonna tell you how long.

- Yes.
- Give me the [BLEEP] watch.

- Yes, I'll take it off.
- [BLEEP] sake.

Piece of [BLEEP].

[BLEEP].

Yes, Chef Ramsay threw that
[BLEEP] in the pizza oven,

and, you know, we had a new
special for the night.

Did you ask for two risotto, Chef?

This guy can't [BLEEP] count.

[BLEEP] extraordinary.

What the [BLEEP]?

[BLEEP] again.

I'm here, Chef.

- Hey, Blue Team.
- Yes, Chef.

Come in. Two risotto,
17 minutes on order,

two, four... this time I get five.

What are you doing?

How screwed up is this?

Hey, hey, sit down with Paige.

Sit down with Paige.

You've made enough. Go on.

This is what humiliation looks like.

- Oh, what you did wrong?
- But I couldn't... sorry.

I don't like waste, Paige.

Hurry up and eat. Hurry up.

- Excuse me.
- All of it?

I guess so.

At least it's delicious.

Come on, man. That ain't no punishment.

You're awesome, by the way.

- Thank you.
- Really.

- Thanks.
- He's over there just, like...

Get the [BLEEP] back on
to your station, bro.

- Is it good?
- It's amazing.

Best day of my life.

- Move your ass.
- Yes, Chef.

- Have fun.
- Thank you.

Aww, poor guy.

Van, can you put some of that
stock in that pot, please?

Where? Here?

- No, no, no.
- What the [BLEEP]...

- Here.
- Are you doing, bro?

- Here.
- Well, [BLEEP] say that!

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.

It's 45 minutes into dinner service,

and Van and Josh in the Blue kitchen....

Here. No, no, no.

- What the [BLEEP] are you doing?
- Here.

Are having a
challenging time communicating.

- Here.
- Well, [BLEEP] say that!

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.

I'm going over to help you,
and you're acting like a little

bitch right now, Josh.

You don't have to get that crazy.

Two duck, two halibut. Where are we?

- I'm waiting for garnish, Chef.
- Oh, [BLEEP].

I'm garnishing right now, Chef.

We're slowing down for garnish?

Barbie seems flustered
on the garnish station.

You know, where you, like, reheat stuff.

Barbie, walking two duck.

No, wait.

What do you mean, wait?

Two duck, two halibuts.

Duck.

Halibut garnish.

I'm working on the halibut
garnish right now, needs salt.

- Come on.
- Yes, Chef.

Why is Barbie struggling with garnish?

Yeah.

- Ice cold mash.
- Sorry, Chef.

Ice cold. Hey,
give my glove bag, please.

- My glove, you doughnut.
- Oh, sorry.

[BLEEP] hell.

I guess if you bring cold
mash up to Chef Ramsay,

he's gonna call you a doughnut.

That's funny.

Doughnut.

Let's get this out.

- Nicely cooked, the duck.
- Mash is right here, Chef.

Let's go.

Barbie finally gets
it together on garnish.

And diners on the Red side are starting

to enjoy their entrées.

Wow.

Guys, that looks beautiful.

Why can't I do that?

Meanwhile, over in the Blue kitchen,

Chef Ramsay is looking to
Gio and Benjamin for...

Pork, beef Wellington, please.

Behind you, Chef.

Pork on it.

- In the middle.
- Yes, Chef.

Pork in a window.

Oh, [BLEEP]. What's going on now?

What have we got?

Cheeky bastards.
It's, like, you can see...

- Hey, Gio.
- Yes, Chef.

Same table, two pork,

one burnt to [BLEEP],
one beautifully done.

- Yes, Chef.
- Get me another pork quickly.

- Yes, Chef.
- Yes, Chef.

I don't know why Gio would take
up two different pork chops.

He's showing that he's a
rookie in the kitchen.

[BLEEP].

Hey, the pork's [BLEEP] raw.

Back in the pan. Hurry up.

- Yes, Chef.
- Come on, Gio.

I'm pissed right now, so I'm not
gonna [BLEEP] do that again.

Pork.

Giovanni delivers his re-fired pork...

Can we go on that, please?

To the delight of his guests.

Very good.

Now Chef Ramsay needs both teams...

Benjamin, come here.

Jennifer, come here.

To fire the table of 12's entrées.

Red Team's at a 12-top.
See the celebration?

- Yes.
- Yeah, 30th birthday party.

Two halibut, two lobster Wellington,

two beef Wellington.

Blue Team, you've got two salmon,
two duck, two beef.

Look at each other. Entrée, how long?

- 7 minutes.
- 8 minutes.

8 minutes.

Manda, two Wellington,
two lobster Wellington, 8 minutes.

- Are you dragging a duck?
- I'm dragging a duck.

- 6 minutes?
- I don't know. We'll try.

Right?

Jared, it's for the man's birthday.

Let's go, man.

I thought we were all-stars here, bro.

Thank you.

We're plating the 12-top.

Yes, Chef.

Plating right now.

Mash, please.

Mashed potatoes, Chef.

Chef, lobster Welly.

Duck, please.

- Do you glaze it? Nope.
- No, I'm dragging duck.

Send one up. Send one up.

Walking with salmon.

Where's the duck?

Chef, duck right here.

Stop.

All of you, [BLEEP] down here.

This... this is not good.

- Jennifer.
- Come here.

- Yes, Chef.
- Are you for the six?

- Yes.
- Look.

The duck for the birthday.

Who sliced that duck... - I did, Chef.

And then poured hot sauce
on it trying to cook it

[BLEEP] raw in the center?

I put sauce on it, Chef, but not the...

I cut it, Chef.

Come on, guys.

[BLEEP] hell.

If there's one thing I
learned from my season 14

is that if something
isn't cooked correctly,

don't bring it up.

Just send the Red Team's entrées.

Do you have an extra
one ready? Let's go.

I might have one.

We've got to [BLEEP]
finish and finish strong.

We need to keep this winning streak up.

We're not losing.

Thank you, Jennifer.

Jennifer rescues the Blue Team

with a perfectly cooked duck.

Thank you, Jennifer.

And the birthday table's entrées

are now delivered.

All right. Yes.

Two halibut, two beef
Wellington, how long?

Walking to the pass with
Wellington garnish.

- Walking to the pass.
- Slice, please.

All right, walking with
two halibut garnish.

We walking the halibut now, y'all.

Wellys to the window, Chef.

- Come here.
- Here it goes.

Oh, [BLEEP].

Close the door!

It's 90 minutes into dinner service.

- Come here.
- After a long night

of careless mistakes in
the Blue kitchen...

Here it goes.

Benjamin's raw
Wellington has Chef Ramsay

at his breaking point.

Close the door!

I done!

You're not [BLEEP] rookies anymore!

- Yes, Chef.
- Get out!

[BLEEP] dinner service.

Oh, my God. What a mess tonight.

What a [BLEEP] mess.

With only two entrées
left to serve in the Blue

kitchen, Chef Ramsay takes
matters into his own hands.

Jocky, send that lamb, please.

- Elise...
- Yes, Chef.

Robyn, into the Blue
Team and send desserts.

You want me to go over to the Blue Team

and plate their desserts, Chef?

No problem, Chef; right
over there right now, Chef.

I need a 12-top done first... Yes?

Yes, Chef. He needs the 12-top first.

This guy came here for
his 30th birthday,

and he doesn't have his desserts yet?

We're going now.

Desserts come out.

You're dropping on the birthday boy.

This is definitely redemption for us.

_

Yes, pineapple, please?

Dessert.

♪ Happy birthday to you ♪

♪ Happy birthday dear Toby ♪

♪ Happy birthday to you ♪

Listen, I will say this.

The raw pork and the raw
Wellington is kind of

what got us kicked out.

Wait, wait, wait. Whoa, whoa.

I think everything got us
kicked out, realistically.

Gio, you burnt pork too.

Yeah, one pork.

You served it knowing it was burnt.

No.

You've got me twisted, man.

I'm [BLEEP] staying right
here where I belong.

How many risottos did you
mess up? All of them.

- I didn't mess any risotto up.
- All of them.

You gave him 30 risottos. He ordered 6.

I gave him too many.

I didn't mess any of them up.

I think Josh is delusional.

He was slowing down service all night.

You had, like, 11 extra risottos.

So you're saying that 11
extra risottos is worse

than not knowing how to cook meat?

Yes, yes.

If you can't cook meat,
you shouldn't be here.

And I get it.
I cooked too many risottos.

But listen, I didn't do anything
to get you guys kicked out.

Benjamin should be up there,

Gio should be up there,
and Jared should be up there.

You're a [BLEEP] mess in the kitchen.

I'm a mess in the kitchen?

At least I can [BLEEP] focus
on my station and not, "Ohh."

I was fine.

Your duck should have been
perfect if you're gonna take

- my station too, right?
- Hey, Josh.

I'm talking to Jared right now.

If you want to get involved,
and you're the reason

that we got kicked out of the kitchen...

Done. I did that. I did it.

You guys are the best chefs,
and he burns pork,

you serve raw duck,
and you serve raw Wellingtons.

And you guys are the best chefs?

You've been doing this every day?

Good luck.

We taught you every nuance
on the [BLEEP] menu.

And I'm working on it.

- [BLEEP] you talking about?
- Will you sit down?

- No, we taught you every nuance.
- Sit down.

We can tell you don't do it every day.

Then tell me more, Milly.

"I'm a private chef.

I've got a catering company."

- Yeah, bro.
- You know, listen...

Man, get the [BLEEP] out of here.

You want to hear it again?
Y'all want to hear it again?

You can't burn.

Get on the line and burn
it the [BLEEP] down.

You can't say that [BLEEP] to me.

I ain't letting none of
the [BLEEP] fly, bro.

Talk about how "You can't cook"

Get out. Just, like,
get out the [BLEEP] kitchen, bro.

It's the same [BLEEP]
that we did season 14.

I'ma keep crushing you, bro.

You got me [BLEEP] up.

You ain't doing nothing, man.

Put a suit on. Take the chef jacket off.

I say we do two people and move on.

Josh and Benjamin.

I got the same thing.

- Josh and Benjamin.
- Josh and Gio.

Gio and Ben.

Josh and Gio.

Yeah, all right, listen,
it's gonna be Josh

and then either Gio and Benjamin.

So let's break the tie.

Tonight was a disaster.

Milly, Blue Team's
first nominee and why?

Our first nominee is Josh, Chef.

- Josh.
- Yes, Chef.

'Cause he kept making the same
mistake over and over again

on the risotto.

Wow.

Blue Team's second nominee and why?

Our second nominee is...

For the first time
since the competition began,

the Blue Team All-Stars
had a bad service.

Their first nominee was...

Josh, Chef.

Wow.

Blue Team's second nominee and why?

Our second nominee is...

Giovanni.

- Giovanni?
- Yes, Chef.

- Why?
- It was mistakes,

whoever made the most mistakes,
and it was Giovanni.

Josh, Gio, step forward.

Gio, why do you think you
should stay in Hell's Kitchen?

I think I should stay in
Hell's Kitchen, Chef,

because I never made
the same mistake twice.

I've had two good services.

I know I should have known
better, because I am

the senior guy here, but I never quit.

Josh, tell me why you should
stay in Hell's Kitchen.

Chef, I have a lot of passion and love

for what I'm doing here,
and I really want to be here.

I deserve to be here, Chef.

And I will give you the very
best each and every moment

that I'm kept here, Chef.

- Yes, Benjamin.
- Chef, throughout the whole day

we've been watching over Josh.

And he's been the weakest link all day.

I disagree.

All those who believe that
they are carrying Josh

on the Blue Team raise their hands.

What?

My decision is...

Josh.

- Give me your jacket.
- Yes, Chef.

When a team gives up on you,

there is no place to go.

- Josh.
- Yes, Chef.

You're going to the Red Team.

- Ooh.
- No.

Robyn, get up and give Josh your seat.

Oh, my gosh.

Gio, back in line.

Robyn, get in the Blue Team.

- I'll miss you.
- Oh, my God, no.

Listen and listen carefully.

[BLEEP].

Josh and Robyn, I haven't
seen you at your best,

and I am willing to give
you one more chance.

Yes, Chef.

Both of you,
you need to perform at the level

that you showed me when
you were here last.

Is that clear?

Yes, Chef.

Now, get out of there.

I'm going to the Red
Team; this is no joke.

These girls are a little
ruthless at times.

But you know what?

I'm gonna make the best
of this opportunity.

I'm gonna hit the ground running.

And I'm gonna show Chef
Ramsay that I'm deserving

of my second chance.

Blue Team all the way right here.

I'm ready to take the red jacket off.

I'm here for a mission;
I'm here to make myself better.

I want to be that one
walking down the stairs,

so I guess this is where
Chef wants me to be.

Getting Josh out
of the blue chef jacket.

That was our whole thing tonight:

get rid of Josh.

We didn't give a [BLEEP]
how we got rid of Josh.

We didn't give a [BLEEP] if Chef
Ramsay threw him in the oven

with that watch.

Bye, Josh.

Next time on "Hell's Kitchen,"

when the Red Team's newest member...

I need to talk to the Red Team, my team.

Gets the cold shoulder from Elise...

Elise, can we go somewhere
where we can have a chat

with the Red Team?

I'm not ready to chat.

He's been on the team for 30 seconds.

I don't think so. I'll tell you when

it's a meeting, and it ain't now.

Will he be just the spark they need...

They're gonna have no
choice but to welcome me.

Josh, delicious.

You can either work with me,
or you can get out of here.

To bring down their tyrant?

This is how the Red Team works.

Why do you bully everyone?

I'm not a bully, and nobody on
this team would agree with you.

Yes, you are.

Will getting called
out cause Elise to freeze up?

I need the entrées.

Elise. Yo, what the [BLEEP]?

She won't do anything.

Uh, Elise, are you busy?

It's all next time...

Do you want to lose?

On a defiant episode

of "Hell's Kitchen All-Stars."
