    • Chef Ramsay: Dewberry, you're going tonight for one very simple reason: you're a coward, and you turned your back on your team after you screwed them. Give me your jacket, and get out of Hell's Kitchen.

    • Michael: Chef in the kitchen, he's the king of the kitchen. It's a monarchy. We say anything except, 'Yes, Chef', we're done for.

    • Scott: (referring to the Blue Kitchen) In case anyone is wondering, it's about 140° in here.

    • Elsie: (on cleaning squid using a cucumber) Dewberry seemed to have a pretty good handle on that cucumber. But, you know then again I expected all the guys to handle that pretty well.

    • Ralph: (to Jeff after Carolann's elimination) What kind of breakfast are you going to be making for Elsie tomorrow morning, that's my big curi... I'm a little curious. 'Cause he wanted you something fer-rocious, man! Man, he wanted you something bad!
