  • Episode Description
  • An unusually structured episode first sees the conclusion of the conflict started in the previous episode. Chef Ramsay refuses to indulge Joseph's request for a fistfight and Joseph exits the program. Following this, another chef is eliminated. The remaining aspiring chefs head up to their dorms to rest, only to be woken up early in the morning by a fire drill. For the challenge, both teams are then made to serve a pasta dinner for a group of firefighters. The winning team is sent off for a day of spa luxury, while the losing team is made to stay and clean up the fire trucks and equipment, followed by the dining room. During the punishment, two chefs endure injuries that could seriously hinder their performance in Hell's Kitchen. The evening's dinner service sees two chefs becoming waiters, but one blows the job by taking 45 minutes for an order. Despite this, both teams put in their best performances yet, completing the service. In the end, two chefs from the losing team are put up for nomination, but receive a big surprise.moreless

    • Lovely: (after Ramsay berates her for taking too long to take an order) I got verbally spanked.

    • Jim: (as the ladies leave for their spa day) See you later. Don't be afraid to ask them to peel that hair off your upper lip, either!

    • Chef Ramsay: Lovely and Tennille may think they've just received a gift, but what I have in store for them tomorrow will have them running for the door.

    • (As the aspiring chefs head back to the dorms for the night, Ramsay gets in a parting shot at Amanda)
      Chef Ramsay: Amanda?
      Amanda: Yes, Chef?
      Chef Ramsay: Twelve threes?
      Amanda: Nine, Chef. (The other chefs laugh)
      Chef Ramsay: Oh. my God.
      Amanda: 36. (ding sound effect) 36. I'm sorry.

    • Chef Ramsay: Lovely, 45 minutes to get your ticket in. It was so painful. But I did see somebody who cared about their team tonight. Ariel. Ariel: Yes, Chef? Chef Ramsay: You are the best of the worst. Clearly the most assertive, and for me the one that shone tonight. You've got a tough decision to make. Go back to the dorm and think hard about two individuals that you want to drop from your team.

    Trivia (4)

    • Two chefs from the Blue Team suffered injuries during the punishment. Dave slammed his hand in the door of a fire truck and ended up with a torn FCR ligament and a slight fracture of the wrist. Kevin rolled both of his ankles, ending up with a ligament stretch and a severe sprain.

    • Rewards Challenge: The aspiring chefs were awoken at 2:05 A.M. by the wailing sirens of fire engines. It turned out to be a fire drill. Following this, Chef Ramsay tested the teams' preparation and teamwork by having them serve a late night pasta meal to a group of hungry firefighters. They had to serve chicken alfredo, meatball marinara and a garlic bread appetizer. The winning team was the one that completed the service first. Reward: The Red Team just barely won this service. For winning, they were sent in a helicopter for treatments at the Pacific Water Spa. Punishment: The firefighters left behind some of their fire trucks and equipment and the Blue Team was made to clean it. Following this, they were made to clean up the dining room.

    • Following Tony's elimination, Robert was moved back from the Red Team to the Blue Team.

    • Nominees for Elimination (Opening): After Joseph threw off his jacket and quit the program, Chef Ramsay continued with the elimination. Lovely and Tennille had already been nominated for the Red Team & now Tony and Andy were officially nominated for the Blue Team. Eliminated (Opening): Tony Nominees for Elimination (Closing): The Red Team lost the evening's dinner service. Ariel was named the best of the worst and asked to choose two members of the Red Team for elimination. Once again, Lovely and Tennille were chosen. Eliminated (Closing): Neither. Both chefs were granted a reprieve, as Joseph had quit the program and therefore there was no need to eliminate another chef at the end of the program.

    • Kevin: (as he and Dave must perform while seriously injured) Remember the Alamo! Kevin appears not to know that the defenders of the Alamo Mission in San Antonio, Texas were overrun by the Mexican army led by General Santa Anna in 1836. The defenders were able to hold out for about two weeks, however, before all the men (except one slave and a Mexican deserter who claimed to have been a prisoner) were slain. The women and children were allowed to leave, however, after being questioned by Santa Anna.
